DAIRYING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DAIRY SIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 3 April 1914

DAIRYING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DAIRY 8IRE. In studying dairy sires, we should be constantly on the lookout for indica tions which will reveal desirable char acteristics. In the head are centred 'all the nerves of the body, and now the question is—Is there anything about the external construction to re veal the quality and strength of the nervous system. The eye, which is closely associated with the brain, re flects, to a large extent, the nervous energy of the animal. We like to see an eye full and bright, active, but not of a nervous expression; a mild eye rather than one having a wild appear ance. An eye of this kind reveals the right sort of nerve energy which should be possessed by the dairy sire. The sunken and half-closed eye in dicates a nervous system which is un responsive and lacking in quality. We would not select a dairy sire which re flected through his eye this sort of a ksrvous temperament; Nervous tem perament does not mean an animal that is nervous but rather nerve...

Rushworth District Traders' Society. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 3 April 1914

Rushworth District Traders' Society. A meeting of members of the above was held on Tuesday evening last, when there was a good attendance. Mr T. G. Anderson (president) occu pied the chair, and reported that Mr Crothers and himself (in company with the shire president) had waited upon the Railway Commissioners with respect to keeping Esmonde street open for trallic, and a promise had been given that an officer would be sent up to inspect. The secretary said that this officer had arrived on the 25th March, and as he had inferred that some opposition to the pro posal had been lodged they had imme diately got out a petition, and this was sigued by between 70 and SO townspeople favoring the street being kept open. Mr Peart said the only objection came from people who feared that traction traffic would be allowed in the street for all time.

COUNCIL MATTERS. The next ordinary monthly meeting of the Waranga Shire Council will take place on Tuesday, when, in the light of recent developments, there should bo some interesting discussion. Several matters of moment will command at tention, and although things have been quiet enough during the past fortnight with respect to " The Sleeper Deal " and " The Park Road Contract," interest is still maintained, and the actions of coun cillors on Tuesday will be watched by ratepayers with interest. Touching the sleeper question much has been made of a letter written by the President (Cr M'Kee) wherein it is con tended that he acquiesced in the purchase of the last little bundle of sleepers—the final coup ; 518. As a matter of fact Cr M'Kee explained his actions with regard to this letter at the March meetiug, and a report of his remarks appeared in this journal. This was not suiiicient for some people, who, however, neglected to ex plain that Cr M'Kee wrote that letter under misrepres...

Murchison Water Trust Meters. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 3 April 1914

Mupchison Water Trust Meters. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I read with some degree of amuse ment the letters appearing in your last issue on this matter—amusement that such silly arguments had to be resorted to in support of a lost cause, and more particularly the appellation to either epistle. "SlowPay." Wow, what a sug gestive title ! Does he pay at all 1 And would a meter or anything else affect hint ? Then there is " Two Blind Mice." What a euphonious title ' Still a person would have to be even more blind than the proverbial "Two blind mice," who could not discern a smattering in these two epistles—that is, reading between the lines—of the literary capabilities of the "Pompatic Magnanimity" trium. virate. Are the Commissioners a set of fools that they may be expected to hearken unto the brayiugs of every ass that comes along. Certaiuly they have taken their stand ; then by all means let them stick to it. Unlike the writeis of these letters (who, after all, are only actuated by their own...

WARANGA SHIRE ELECTION. The Western Riding Seat. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 3 April 1914

WARANGA SHIRE ELECTION. The Western Riding- Seat. The extraordinary election for the seat rendered vacant in the western riding of the Shire of Waranga through the resig nation of Cr John P. O'Brien took place on Thursday, 26th ult., and, as generally predicted, resulted in a very close finish. Nevertheless, the excitement could not have been very keen judging by the number of votes- polled—566—barely half of the total votes on the roll. There was on this occasion some doubt respecting the postal votes, and the returning officer (Or Speirs) delayed the declaration of the poll until satisfied that the votes were correct. The ordinary polling gave Mr Williams an advantage of four votes over his opponent, and on counting up the postal votes of the seventeen ratepayers who had voted per post it was found that Mr Williams had scored 20 votes as against Mr Ingram's 14. This increased Mr Williams' lead to 10, and he was declared elected by this majority. The unexpired portion of Gr O'Brien...
