ANOTHER BELIEF SHATTERED. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 1 May 1915
ANOTHER BELIEF SHATTERED. There are no bulrushes in Sir Law rence Alma Tadema's new Academl picture, "The Finding of Moses." H&lt; gives learned reasons for the omis sion. The word translated as "bul rushes" in the Bible really meant "papyruis," which was made fron reeds. "What Moses' mother did,' says Six Lawrence, "was to make at ark of papyrus and rub it over witP the white Nile mud." It is that arl of papyrus that he has painted. Fin ally, there are no bulrushes on tlu Nile. Mr Rockefeller's offer of 1,06O,00( d -ilars to the man who can cure hiL of ind-gestion has been accepted bW a doctor, who offered to forfeit 501 lollars if he failed. But Mr Rocke teller argues that it must be ever inoney-"1,000,000 dollors for you i -ou succeed, and 1,000,000 for me 1 you fail."

No matter what one mnight sa3 or do, it would be all the same, and nothing, could be just exactly right If one laughed, hard feelings would bi promptly stored up against one foi being callous and entirely without -ympathy; and if, on the other hand -)ne cried, the same hurt feeling' would be carefully done up in laven der to be aired at some future day.

NEW IDEA FOR HELPING THE BELGIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 May 1915
NEW IDEA FOR HELPING' THE BELGIANS. There have been many schemes for raising funds to feed the starv: ing Belgians, sonme good, some doubtful; but a novel suggestion, that' ought to result in the raising" of a considerable sum, appears in "Everylady's Journal" for May. Miss Mary Card, author of one of the best-known books on Crochet Work,' and perhaps the niost expert Crochet-Work designer in Australia, has designed a 'doyley in semi-Irish crochet-work', with an Australian motif. A large photograph of the design appears in "Everylady's Journal," and Miss Card offers to send a photograph of the doyley, and printed directions for its worl ing, to any one who will post her 7d. in stamps. One penny. of this pays the postage, and the balance of--the money goes to the Belgian Fund. Any reader may take advan tage of the offer, and should post; 7d. in stamps or postal note to Miss Card, Post-Office, Olinda, Victoria.. She wilh get a delightful doyley de&lt; sign, and a'c the same ti...

MR. ELWOOD MEAD has returned to America, which, as a matter of strict -fact, he should never have left. The conditions in Victoria are in everyway different to thoase in America,-and he has not been able to assimilate them. Mr. Man che~ter, now of Queensland, would have done better. In July, 1866, Mr. James Young, locally the lead ing man of his day, lectured in Bacchus. Marsh upon irrigation, and dealt chiefly with India, but recommended local people to accept Christopherson~s Coimadai scheme, then under offer by the Govern ment upon a responsibilty to pay 5 per cent. interest on cost. :.To the objection that the reservoir would never have been filled, he said that in that case the Government could not exact interest. This was veri fied later on, when districtsR which did promise theinteie~st were never asked to pay, and that cdndition in the Act wvas repealed, and Sir Geo. Turner wr6te off hundreds of thous ands'-of arrears. The State Rivers Commission should now be asked toreport...

COUNTRY ROADS BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 May 1915
COUNTRY ROADS BOARD. On Wednesday evening last two members of the Board' (Messrs. Calder and McC6rmack) visited Baachus Marsh, and met some of the. Councillors at the Shire hall. Mr. Calier (Chairman of the Board) gave a full explanation of the work ing of the Board. In regard to the local roads, Mr. Calder said they had not decided whieh of the roads to Geeloig they would take over, but would make a furthei" inspection on Thursday, also of the road to Gisborne. The Board had to consider which roads were going to be the greatest good for the greatest .number, irrespective of, Ridings. and Shires. The road to Geelong. which ap peared to. be most "favored was the one from Bapchus Marsh along the Woolpack to' Parwan and Ripley, thus making a through connection with the road taken over in adjoin ing Shires. If this. course is fol lowed the Balliang-Staughton Vale road will not be proclaimed, a main road, but will probably receive sonma assistance from the Board. The Melbourne-Ballarat r...

LERDERDERG RESERVOIRS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 May 1915
LERDER.DERG RESERVOIRS. To the Editor of the Expres8. Sir,--There does not seem to be much chance of any' reservoir being built .on the Lerderderg river at present, as the scheme now being carried out at Melton has apparently completely overshadowed any other scheme in the district for-a time. That scheme, however, is of very little use to irrigatbrs at Bacchus Marsh. The delay in the building sf a big' reservoir at Simmons' Reef may not be without'its advantages. A dry season :like the present puts any water .storage' schemite to, a very severe test, and, in my opinion, if that. reservoir had':been built it would have been a failure, as the watershed is-'restricted, ahdlthe stor age would not hav'e'been sufficient to stand the straini. I believe, how ever, that the site at Kaingaroo Flat (which I described' about a month ago in your columns) would stand such a strain, and for equal cost a reserv(cir could be built at that place with at least twice the capacity of that at Simmons' R...
