WERRIBEE ELECTRIC LIGHT. OFFICIAL OPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 19 June 1915
WERRIBEE ELECTRIC LIGHT. OFFICIAL OPENING. The town of Werribee has had ah awakening - during the last few years. Improvements all the time ; going on. A reticulated water sup :. ply for the town has been prbvided; .electric light scheme installed by the Shire (officially opened on Mon day); and erection of Municipal market yards (to be opened to-day.) How the electric light scheme is - to be financed is interesting.

DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 19 June 1915
DEBATING SOCIETY. At the last meeting there was a debate on "Should the Totalisator be legalised?" Mr. J. A. Johns argued that it should, as it had a beneficial effect wherever introduced. It was machine betting in place of the bookmakers, of whom there were 800 licensed in Melbourne, apart from other parts of the State. The bookmakers and their clerks were as dodder to lu cerne-parasites. The totalisator would confine betting to the race course, and 10 per cent. of the tak ings would assist their charities to the extent of £100,000. The drink traffic was legalised, and a source of revenue to the State, why not the totalisator ? Cr. J. Wills disapproved of legal ising a vice. If the State took 10, per cent. out of the betting public by the totalisator it would be taking more than the bookmakers did. It was said the public made the odds with the machine, whereas the book maker made his own odds. That was not so. The State asked parents to bring up their families good citi zens, but b...

Notwithstanding the general de pression, the Annual Show was a successful one, and compared favor ably with any of the provincial Shows of the State held during ...

One cause of this may be assigned to weak plants with soft leaves and few roots. Another fre quent cause is the failure to reduce the leaf surface before setting in the field. Almost always when plants are, pulled from the seed bed many roots are lost, and to balance up the water supply and demand in the plant, parts of the top should also be removed. In many cases these tips "or even the whole leaves would dry up anyway, and the grower may as- well keep the water they...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 June 1915
THE Federal Parliament is busy with its referenda Bills, prepara tory to the next. general election. This cannot be avoided. The State Parliament is busy with its night mare-the Greater Melbourne Bill, which is necessitated by Mr. Gillies' error in handing over the streets to a tramway company,, instead of attaching them to the State-rail ways, which will be their ultimate fate. Strong leaders are needed in both Parliaments. Those in power lack individuality. We have had nice mild rains for the week, amounting to 16 points. The crops are growing nicely, and are now covering the ground well, but the grass is still very shy. Some of the earlier, crops aare a little weedy. On Saturday week,; July 3rd, Messrs. McPhail Bros. will hold their monthlily market at Melton. Christ Church, 27th inst., Fourth Sunday after Trinity :- Melton, morning and evening; -Toolern Vale, 11; Rockbank; 3; Railway Station, 7.30.

?,BACOHUS MARSH AGRICUL TURAL SOCIETY. A special. meeting of members was held on Thursday last, to de cide whether the annual show should be held. The President (Mr. J. D. Cameron) presided. Mr. W. P. Robertson. (ex-Presi dent) thought It would be foolish not to hold a show, .as they would lose touch with their members and supporters; and would also lose the Government . subsidy. The policy now was to hold the show, as the prospects of the season were good. Reduce the prize list. He moved that the show be held. Mr. W. Grant said stockowners assured himnt that it would be impos sible to get stock into show coindi tion. There would be trouble. col lecting for a decent prize list, with out which they would not get many exhibits. If they had "a show the prize, list would have .to be cut down to suit the times. The President thought it. better. to lose a little rather than forego the show. Things would be very much improved by October. Mr. W. G. Hegarty said it would be .a inistake to dr...
