MARRACOONDA. March 14. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 15 March 1902
(FEOSI OUB COBBESPONDENT.) March 14. Since the beginning of the month tires have been very prevalent in this district, as most of the farmers intend increasing their cultivation areas and have taken an early opportunity of setting fire to their scrub and straw. , The weather in consequence of the numer ous fires has been close and sultry, especially in the beginning of the week. A Flight thunderstorm broke over the district on Tues day afternoon, accompanied by a few drops of rain, but did not clear the air to any ex tent. Bain is badly needed, as most of the dams are dry, and water has to be carted for stock from the wells, of which there are a good many throughout the district, although in some instances they are not quite-fresh. Ploughing has been commenced in some of the loose soils, but those having soil of a haid nature will have to wait for rain. The annual tea meeting and social in con nection with the Presbyterian services here will take place in the local school on Friday ...
