Mr T, Miles had a nar row escape of losing his homestead, his house, being surrounded by fire. The fire-fighters deserve great credit for the way they fough the flames. The dry weather is beginning to tell on the maize crops, which up till now.had been looking very well, but there is no shortage of grass yet. Tobacco-growers have started har vesting their tobacco Mr T. Brownlie has a good sample o' heavy pipe leaf, while Mr T. McCoy has a very fine sample of cigar leaf.

GENERAL NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914
GENERAL NEWS As a result of the recent visit of the Minister of Public Works to Malla coota it is probable that a committee of officers from the Public Works and Forests departments will be appointed to make inquiry as to whether 'it is worth while spending a large sum of money on port improvements at Malla. coots or Gabo Island, when the forest could be tapped from Orbost. By ex tending the line another 10 or 15 miles beyond Orbonst it is considered that the heart of the forest can be reached. The Railway Commissioners and persons en gaged in the timber trade will be invited to express their views, and the commit tee of experts will, as soon after it is appointed as possible, make an inspec tion of the whole of the timber area in question. When it has completed its inquiries and reported to the Ministers, a recommendation will bIe made to the Cabinet. The outlook for the Malla coota harbor is not very encouraging, but the prospect of extending the rail way beyond Orboot is wore bop...

IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914
IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. Experiments conducted for the past fourteen years have led to the follow ing conclusions of interest to the prao tical farmer in the matter of rotation of crops. Potatoes require the least water, and leave the subsoil rich in moisture. They therefore leave the soil in a more favorablo condition for suhbseiuont crops, provided that the getting in of the potatoes be not un duly delayed and that nitrogen be add ed to the soil in a readily assimilable form. Peas are another orop which absorb little moisture from the soil; oats, on the other hand, take up much. As far as the moisture of the soil is con cerned, it is better to grow wheat after rye than rye after wheat. Olover ex hausts the moisture of the soil in the highest degree. Thus in dry years, a crop sown after clover will find the con ditions of the soil unfavourable and will develop slowly. Oh, could there in this world, be found Some little spot of happy ground, Without the village tattling--Holmes...
