Our Neighbours. [PBOM QUS OWX CORBESPOJIDSHTS.] HERBERTON. July 19. A coTtrt,KfB dearth of news. Not an event; I nat even a '' drunk " to fall back upon ; the dullest and dreariest week I have experi» enced in Herberton, notwithstanding the splendid weather. On Monday morning the Herberton Co- operative Crushing Company's machine was set in motion, ander the management of John Hayes, half owner of the Southern Cross cla£n, who has leased it from the Com- pany. This js a prudent step on the part of |he latter, as the rent will help to pay off back accounts, whije the occupancy of the mill means at least JS50 or -£tX)paid in wages weekly, The lessee is the half owner of a pj-iim proverbial for its quantity of ore, If hieb, qualification, happily far bim, makes up for the quality.

Successful Experiment in Draining Swamps. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 31 July 1884

Sncéesefal Sxperiawat ia Drala i*S Swamps. IN a letter from Atlanta,' Ga., to the TX. Y. Sex, a correspondent relates the resu't of tome experiments recently made hy Col. John P. Fort, on the draining of swamp lands in the southwestern portion of Georgia. The great drawback of Florida, Louisiana, the rioe sections of South Carolina, and Georgia has been the fact that white men could not lire there on account of brackish ; drinking water und malaria, inseparable from floods and swamps. Several years since. .Col. Fort, who owns much property of this description, conceived the. id*;a of sinking artesian' wells, holding that when a certain stratum was reached pure water could be obtained in'abunda nee. " His efforts were crowned with snch success that every to;va in southern Georgia is sinking artesian wells. The water is perfectly clear, sweet, and piire as the best to be found in the high- lands. -. This >-nceess led Col. Fort to try the experiment of'? draining stagnant ponds bv r...
