0ORMANDALE. *--4-- 'he rainfall for' February was -only five points, four of which tell on the 8th of the month, and one point on the 10th. A good fall ot rain would be very welcome just now, as a growth of autumn and winter feed would be assured. One advantage gained by the cool change and the misty xam we have hadduring the past week has been the check given to the (ires.

A DEFECTIVE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
A DEFECTIVE DAIRY. -o In order to demonstrate that 1 i recent strictures upon the condi tion of some of the dairies and pig styes mn the Warragul shlre, were riot too severe, the President (Mr. Smyth) last week invited some of of his brother councillors and rep resentatives of' the press to jorn him in a round t.ip, for the pur pose of inspecting one of these very insanitary dairies. There was no. room left for doubt as to thb necessity for drastic action. The wooden shed, about seven feet square, was situated about twenty five feet from the little out house. An opening in the side of the dairy offered a free invitation to fl:es. A chain away was the cowshed, the floor of which was a'lloose. ?Within about half a chain was the pig stye, which was mn.a terrible con dition, the under portion of the floor being a seething mass . of amnimated corruption. All these buildings were in a direct line with the dairy, and the prevai'ing wind of course would convey the stench to its contents. We...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
GENERAL NEWS. From "Times." The Avon Council, by four to three, on Monday decided to al low landowners in the shire to have one dog free of dog tax. This was done on the mnotion of Cr. Hall, to encourage men to keep dogs to kill the rabbits. Cr. Thomson opposed the motion as flouting "the law, and Cr. Carter agreed with him. Cr. Thomson held, in addition, that the motion would not be co.-plete unless the breed of dog to be exempt was mentioned, for the ordinary sheep or cattle dog could not catch a rabbit. Cr. Killeen said a man could catch them alter they had been rui a few miles, and Cr. Hal drew a smile by remarking that any of the dogs could kill rabbits ' after they caught them. It was nonsense to say sheep dogs would not kill them. Cr. Long said that men who had half-a-dozen dogs were not called on to pay for more than two, and Cr. Taylor sail a. l!ot of them were called puppies. Councillors were not clear as to how the dog inspectors \would fare under the new regulation. The ...

SNAGGING THE LATROBE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
Uhe praunu. . TELEPHONE, 10. FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1914. SNAGGING THE LATROBE. A feature of the conference which sat at Traralgon on Friday to deliberate on the questlon of snagging the Latrobe river was the unanimity of fee'ing that pre vailed, and the enthusiasm evinced in the desire to achieve some prac tlcat measure of benefit for the suffering settlers along the stream. The report submitted by the de- I partmental engineer was rilhtly subjected to rough usage by the members of the conference, be cause it displayed a practlial Ig norance of the reaf nature and ccn dition of the land a'ong the river, and propounded ideas known to be wrong by the test of halt a cen tury experience on the part of some of the landowners. Apart from this, it anticlpated a whole sale cuttming of the bends,, whereas those interested asked only for the cutting of the narrower bends and the clearing of the river of snags ana obstruction. T is lat ter consideration the report seems almost to have lost sight of...
