WAKOOL SHIRE COUNCIL. ENGINEER'S. REPORT. At the Wakool shire council on 'fon day last, the engineer (Mr. -J Vaughan) submitted the following re port: 1 must inform you that I could hot make all the.entries necessary, also give some receipts in proper order, on account of some of the books belonging to the shire having been removed from the chambers.

IC" KET. -4_..--- SWAN HILL ASSOCIATION. By THoiT-'STOP. Bohemlans Premiers. For the seconed year in succession the -Bohemians have won the local cricket miership. The final match was played on Satsrd last between Bohemians and m stic Park. Both clubs were running level, and a win to either carried the pre-ierehi with it, while a draw meant a Ply off.

THE SKUNK [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 March 1914
THE SKUNK One natural result of the recent boom in furs (says "The Westminster Gazette") is an attempt to breed fur bearing animals in England. In thi' connection a large consignment of North American skunks-has lately ar rived, some of which will -shortly be established by Mir Mervyn Chute in a large hillside enclosure on his estate in Northumberland. Despite a maloador ous reputation, the skunk seems a dainty feeder, subsisting chiefly on in sects, and it Is cons!dered doubtful whether sufficient food of the correct kind can he procured. Moreover, the value of the fur produced may be af fected by our milder climate. Aos> from the fur, the terrible fetid fluid fol which this animal is notorious is valu able medicinally, being prescribed fr asthma: though an asthmatid clergy man, who took a bottle- of it into th pulpit to inhale when his breath r""n troublesome, found that he had reliev ed his malady. but disperseri the con gregation.
