Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. CHANGE IN RAINFALL DISTRIBUTION MERELY LOCAL. DROUGHT AND MIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 27 March 1914

Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. GHANGE IN RAINFALL DISTRI- BUTION MERELY LOCAL. DROUGHT AND MIGRATION. Combating the frequently-advanced theory that the earth is drying up, Professor Gregory, at a Geographi- cal Society's meeting held at Bur- lington House, said there was no real evidence of more than local   changes in rainfall distribution.   As an increased rainfall had been demonstrated for so many parts of the world, it was only natural to expect a compensating decrease in other districts. Prince Kropotkin had attributed   the overthrow of tthe Roman Empire to the dwindling rainfall in Central Asia, which turned whole tribes in- to nomads owing to the repeated failures of their crops. He further contended that if this desiccation of the earth was to go on it must lead to further great political changes, forcing popula- tions out of the centres into the continental margins.   EFFECT OF THE DROUGHT. Similarly, according to Prof...

Goroke Drain [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 April 1914

Goroke Drain Afc Monday's meeting of the Kow* ree Council the seci-etary submitted the following report:^ So far I have taken no steps with regard to the drain to Ire made to drain the premises in the Goroke township, as I thought it as well to Trait till the appointment of a solici tor was settled, as it will be necessary to consult a solicitor, The resolution of the Council at tho last meeting is to th»* effect that steps be taken to acquire the land for the drain under Section 236 of the Health Act, but on looking'into the matter I find that the power conferred by the Health Act is firstly, the acquision of a right of way, from one street, to an other, or secondly, the power to exca vate a drain, without acquiring any right over any portion of the land. As the land proposed to be acquired does not extend trom one street to another the Council appears to have no power to acquire the land under Jection 236 1 take it that the Conn cil's ends will be served by the right to'make and m...
