BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 15 May 1915
BACCHUS MARSH. TiHE State Rivers Commission should issue a report of the state of its affairs, and its proposals for thefuture. The railway supply at Bacchus Marsh is depending upon an empty reservoir. Mr. Elwood Mead spent weeks with Mr. Gar son in the Blackwood ranges, and decided to reconstruct the Simmons Reef, reservoir, and then amiably allowed Mr. Graham, a layman, to veto the expenditure. That was Mr. Mead's great fault; he was a University Professor, and not a man of action. The Ballanee storage scheme should be carried out. It is useless depending upon one watershed. Several reservoirs at Ballanee were surveyed; and none of them carried out because local ballot box did not accept them. Sir Alexander Peacock should exer cise hisresponsibility in this matter, or ,bidon Qb,"G-e., Baptist Church services:-Bacchus Marsh, 11 and 7, Pastor S. Whit church.

FRUIT AND CARROT POISONING. THE ART OF FREEFEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 15 May 1915
FRUIT AND CARROT POISON ING. THE ART OF FREEFEEDING. (By P. E. Allan, Chief Inspector, V.D. Act.) All animals or birds, that collect in any number, have amongst them a proportion that rule or "boss" the others. This is specially so as re gards the rabbit. When the "free feed" is found, the. stronger ones will take possession, and hunt or keep the others away till they have eaten their fill and none may then be left to educate the balance. Any one who will take tlhe trouble to lie in hiding, and watch the freshly laid furrows, will see the stronger take possession, and hunt the weaker away. The next day, when it is' found that all the feed is gone, most people merely relay the same quan tity. This is again eaten by the same ones that had it before, and •so on, till the poison baits are laid, when, of course, only those that have been "educated" are killed. The others have not had a chance to ac quire the taste, and, as is most likely the case, if there are poisoned baits left in the ...

ANTIMONY: ITS OCCURENCES AND USES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 15 May 1915
ANTIMONY: ITS OCCURENCES AND USES. (From the Encyclopedia Britannica) Antimony is metal found native to a small extent in many of the localities from which its ores are derived. It has been obtained at Sahlberg, near Sahl, in Sweeden; at Andreasberg, in the Harz; at Allemont, in Daupheny; Prizibram, in Bohemia; and also to a smaller extent in Borneo, Chili, Mexico, New Brunswick, &c. It also occurs in nature alloyed with other metals; allemonite being arsenical antimony; dyscrasite, antimonial silver; and breithanpite, a native alloy of an timony and nickel.
