TOOLERN VALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The rainfall here has amounted to 104 points. This very welcome addition to last month's fall has changed the state of affairs, and the piospects now are certainly good. The monthly shoot of the Gun Club was held on Saturday, and though the day was anything but pleasant, nine shooters put in an appearance, and had a good after noon's sport. The birds were a very good lot--9 straight kills by P. Murnane and J. Allan being the best for the day. In the club tro phy (5 birds) no shooter was equal to a possible. C. Charlton having to kill on the last round to win the. "leg-in." Failing, he let all the rest in again, and finally won with 6 out of 7. Sweepstakes-No. 1, T. Condon, 3 kills; No. 2, J. Allan and V.

THE HILL-CLIMBING FORD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915

THE HILL-CLIMBING FORD. Mr. Sharp, Inspector for Mines, was driven out to the Coimadai An timony mine in a Ford car, and taken right up to the entrance of the mine. He expressed his aston ishment that a car could be taken into such rough country, and said that the trip was an eye-opener to him, as he had been told that Ford cars were only good for town use and good roads. Now he knows better, and says that he is quite satisfied that a Ford will go any where. A "Ford" and an "Indian" have the honor of being the first and only car and motor cycle to visit the Antimony mine. Simon Bros. are the Local Agents for the Ford, and all caris booked through them will have their special attention. They are making a spec iality of these cars, and keep on hand a supply of principal parts, which can be fitted at shortnotice and small cost. A stock of tyres are also kept, and one of the latest" Harvey-Frost Vulcanizers, for the repair of tyres and tubes, has been installed.

MYRNIONG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915

MYRNIONG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Since Friday of last week 160 points of rain have been registered, and as a result the agrriulturil ouit look is more promising. Alrcady the early sown crops are beginninig to show green, and the prospect of a limited quantity of winter grass is much more hopeful. Unfortun ately, a large percentage of stock is in very low condition, and the cold stormy weather, which followed the genial rains of Friday and Sat urday has already accounted for a large numbei. Should the winter be a severe one, the mortality will be greatly increased. A very pleasant social evening was spent at Mr. Cresswell's new store on Friday, when quite a num ber of locals assembled, with the view of "warming" the building be fore Mr. and Mrs. Cresswell take. up their permanent residence there. The company appreciated Mr. and Mrs. Cresswell's kindness in allowing them the privilege to use the new. structure for their enjoyment, al most as much as the latter did the complimen...
