Pumping v. Gravitation. Vigorous Debate on "What is to be Done." When the routine business of the trust was disposed of, the question of deciding what was to be done in order to increase the supply came pn for consideration. Com. Minogue said he thought out of respect to the chairma~, they should defer this matter till he was able to attend. The acting chairman said that while he sympathised with the chairman (Dr. Strangman) and re gretted that he was unable to at tendthrough illness, he did not see how they cold 'put off such an urgent question till the next meet ing. Com. Tehan said he also had greit sympathy for Dr. Strangman, and wished he were present, still he (the speaker) did not see how they could put off the business of the meeting on that account, as it was of such an urgent nature: They did not put off the business.of the council when the president could not attend.

Correspondence THE AVENEL CEMETERY. TO THE EDITOR OF THIE EXPrSSO. Sir,-A good deal has been written lately iuthese columns by your corres. pondent and others in regard to the "dis. graceful condition of the Avenel ceme tery. Up to about ten years ago this was a nicely well kept enclosure, a pleasure to louk at," and a comfort and solace to those people who have near and dear relatives laid to rest there. How differ ent to-day when this sacred little spot resembles a wilderness unkept and un cared for covered by long dry grass be tween two and three feet high (a menace to the town) and overrun by rabbits. It is, indeed, surprising that the trustees are not more keen to the trust that has been placed in them, and oudeavor to have the place kept in the order that it deserves. Very little expense would be involved in the upkeep and they would gain the gratitude and good will of num. erous residents to whom this little spot is sacrsd..--Yours, etc., COMMONs II IT**Ion agacyý
Seymour Football Club [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914
Seymour Football Club The following report for 1913 will be read at the aunual meeting on the 27th iust. Your committee have pleasure in pre senting their report for the season 1913. Though the club did not win the pre miership, it was by no means disgraced, its position being well up on the list, and with a little luck might have gained the coveted honors It will be remembered at the com mencement of last season the outlook from a football point of view was by no means a bright one, as the North Eastern Association could not be formed. Active steps were taken by your committee in the formation of the new Waranga No-th Eastern Football Association, and you must agree that they have every reason to be proud of the new body. The receipts from the semi-final and final matches were very large, and your club received a very satisfactory divi dend (as shown by the balance sheet) from the final match. The football played was ;of a high standard through out, and the Association are'to be co...
Tennis. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914
Tennis. Great interest is being taken in the district tennis competitions, the various matches attracting large crowds every Saturday. Broadford, so far, are the only unbeaten team, and judging by their present form, should be at the top of the list at the end of the season. Avenel and Sugarloat Creek both have a good chance, whilst Tallarook have a quartette capable of holding their own with the best teams in the competition. Of the three local teams Christ Church -have the best record, and will probably improve their position as the season pro gresses The town were rather nufor. tunatein not having their courts cont. pleted earlier, to bring their players up to competition form. llovever, they have many promising colts, who will be amongst the top-notchers next season. The Railway Club were weakened by the departure of Mr Thurgood. their best player, but are hopeful of making :a big. ger bid for the trophy next year. The following are the scores of Saturday's mnatches: TALLAROOK V...
Selecting Candidates. Discussed by Seymour Branch of Peoples' Party [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914
Selecting Candidates. Discus'c4 by Seymour Branch : ooples' Party An interesting discussion took place at the meetingof the Seymour branch of the Peoples' Party on F' iday last, following a letter from the head office of the party in re gard to the selection of candidates, and suggesting that same be decided by ballot. The President (Mr Carnie) said that the ballot system was most ex pensive. At Hamilton it had cost £200, and if every item had been charged for it would have been more. The Mernda electorate was a very big one--embracing the country from Lancefield to 1Echuca -and it would be- a serious busi ness to get a vote over such an area It would be more satisfactory, he thought, if each branch took a vote and sent in the result. Mr Heywood favored electing a delegate and give him the power to vote for. any candidate. He agreed with the President that the taking of a ballot was too expensive. Each delegate's vote would represent the whole strength of the branch. The Presilent a...

APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914
AP.PLE EXPORTS. Froitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will bu interested in some sta -tistics compiled by Mr Thos. Boss Walker, regarding the actual results of shipments made last season from Tas mania, under the private marks of individual orcliardists. " The opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating 6400 o8es' for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 6/10 to 9/9 per case. Sixty seven other growers exported.between them 32,465 and their individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged from 3/9 to 5/9 per case. It must bo remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rule do not sell in Europe at such high prices as those from the main land of Australia. This evideince tends'to show that small lines of well selected and carefully-packed apples reali/e more money than the same class of fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are prepared to pay a con siderable prenmium to secure the whole of any choic...
