The Heat Wave. Record Temperatures Regtered. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 19 February 1914
The Heat Wave. Record Temperatures Reg tered., Not within the past seven years, if ever before, have people in 'this district endured a wave of heat so intense and prolohged as that now cilrrent, which though varied by the oneotrrenca of cold breezes at ihtervals; Is still, marked by high tetiperatisres. Oh,_ T esday, the mercury in Mi Retehford's thermometer put up 103, the then record for the season. YesterdayJit: went one high. er, and this morning bid fair to setnup a third and higher record. Similar weather conditions have pre vailed all over Victoria, and from all quarters come reports of abnormally high temperatures. Shortage of water for both domestic and stock purposes has become a source of acute difficulty in Casterton and Mecrino, as in all parts of the district. Waterholes everywhere are exhausted, or nearly so, and such stagnant water as is left in the shallow holes has become too impure for human, and unft even for stock consnmption. IHence, thle an. vent of the usual...

Merino Water Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 19 February 1914
Merino Water Trouble. The well sinking operations near the Merino flour mill have come to a full stop, on account ot a sand drift, which seems imposaible to cope with. This was struck at a depth of about eight feet. and the silt flowed in quicker than it could be bailed out. The workmen tried to slab the shaft, but this did not prove a success, and it is feared that the whole work in that locality will have to be abandoned. Some think this is for thebs btast atheymaintain the place Is quite unsuitable in more ways than one. The chief objection s that all the cattle would be attracted to the spot and would become a regular nuisance in the midde of the town. The idea of sinking a good aell at the creek behind the Presbyterian Church where there is an endless supply f good water at shallow depth is now generally favored, as it is stated that the water. could easily be brought from his spot by windmIll to a central place much more suitable than the present slected site.

ENGLAND'S WINTER FLOWERS IN THE OPEN [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 19 February 1914
ENGLAND'S WINTER FLOVWERS IN THE OPEN 'Who said winter? The llattQst contradiction ever of fered to the December almanac, at any rate for 165 years, is given In the bas het of roses sent by a reader In tyde, Isle of Wight (says "The DaIly Mall,' on December 21). Hlorace Walpole boasted of a blossom on his nectarine tree on December 26, 1748; but his re cords all go by the board. We can overwhelm him with bouquets, and give him also fruit for his flowers. A IIsilshanm (Sussex) garden carries to-day slmoltaneouslv roses, mistletoe and apple, blossom, as strangely assor ted a trio of blossoms as ever gazed at one another out of doors across an English garden.
