His was one of the old country families of England, whom fortune, while never large, dwidlecj down to a few thousands in the tuime of his father.

With his wife and children, a house in sections ready for erction on arrivali and a stock or furniture, he boarded the Canton in 1838 to voyage to Adelaide where he had already purchased some land as a speculation. Adelaide was only a term then. There was really no Adelaide-only a sur veyed space whe...

In these suhny lands, under the Southern Crosi, the day is honcred with as much enthusiasm and ferver as it is in the Isle of Erin, and that, too, principally by Australian-born Irish·men. At the present time there are very few Australian Irishmen, compara tively sl eaking, who. have ever seen the bogs of the old laud' or tie Lakes of Killarney ; but as that is the home from which their fathers sprang, they are, ds might be ex pected, very much attached to it; and the Hibernians of this district form no exception to the general rule.

REMINISUIENUB S OF AVENEL. OVER 30 YEARS AGO. No. 15. (By W. Smithers Gadd, secretary of the Early Pioneers Association, Melbourne.) THE AVENEL CEMETERY. (Continued.) With reference to my criticism of the way in which the above burial ground is kept, I wrote in my last article that if some of the leading townspeople were to organise a meeting I am impressed with the belief that a better state of affairs would result. - I mentioned the names of Mr Edward Plummer, J.P. (not Skinner as printed), Mi J. P. Gleeson, JP., and Mr S. Ton kin, J.P. These worthy citizens possess sufficient influence to put enthusiasm into the movement. In addition, if the sympathy of the Ladies of the Guild, and other relatives of the dead were obtained, a stroug and influential working Bee could be formed, and in one Saturday afternoon a wonderful transformation would be effected. All well-kept cemeteries are the ad miration of the living, but burial grounds that receive little or no at tention bring discredi...
EFFECTIVE SHEEP DIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
EFFECTIVE SHEEP DIPPING. The chief inspector of stock in South Australia points out that:"there is abundant proof that only poisonous powder dips effectually destroy vermln, and give a reasonable period of protec tion from re-infection. It is the boast of many that they have put large num bers of sheep through the dipping baihs at a rapid rate. Such a method of dipping must be condemned as wasteful and ineffctive, because sheep dipped in tilhis manner soon become reinfected. Owners must abandon the hurry-skurry method, and see that sheep- are soaked for not less than one minute. All must realise that carbolic dipping fluids will not destroy lice or alford any lasting protection agianst re-infection. The annual loss to owners who have neg lected to keep their flocks clean has been immense."

NEW WIRELESS WONDERS. The "wireless compa," or dir.ctian find(er, mnarks almosc as great a stp. forwarad in the new era of lalvigaslon as the discovery of the ordinary coin pass did in the old. An official at Mlarconi House stated recently that there iere twd waf's in whici the new invention would be of great use. Sup posing t?hant a cargo shlp had broken down and was aldrift in miid-ocean. If owing to cloudy or foggy weather, sun, eoon, aund s6arOs had not been visible for two or thlree days, the captain woui:l" not know exactly where hIe was. lie could not tell by wireless to any would-be rescuer precisely in which direction to steam. But if a ship fitted with a direction finder came along thlien she would be able to find out where the vessel in distress was in relation to herself, and so Ie ab!e to race to the rescue, so long as she re ceived signals ThI e second prircipal use for the finder was that of discover ing a ship's position with regard to any coast station. lWhen approa...

EARNINGS OF WORKPEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
EARNINGS OF WORKPEOPLE. It is disappointing to find that the average annual earnings of all work peoplo is only £54110/. while .in silk it is as low as £34/10/. We find that factors other than wagos affect the tc· noutput per hlead. "The Yorkshliire Post" supplies a list illustrantive of this point.

JEPSON'S LUCK. S(By Edward Maolellan in "Harper:'s Bazar.") The stage came to a sodden stop; ithe runaway team broke loose; the driver shot through the air, and landing on a tuit or salt grass saved his neck. lun Jepson left the box---e?t as if propelled by a mule's kick, and, falling head!ong, dislocated a shloulder, broke a wrist, and among other minor injuries, twisted his foot. Both men lay lwhere they had failen, and the" merc.less downpour drench~d them through and through. The lightning had done the mischief just as they were crossing the trestle ridge over Salmon lrivr. Tihe hor ses were fresh, having been changed at Fort Jones, and when thile higatutniug flashed, followed'on the instant by the orack of doom, they plunged iorward.

STARTLING HYPOTHESIS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
lIARTLLNG HYPOTHESIS. At this time, when farmers are turning their attention toward chiam pion cows,'prize bulls, record yields, butter-fat competitions, and the rest, we are glad to publish from an autho ritative source two sets of figures, which teach a lesson that must be driven home to the unprogressive farmer (says an exchange). The fig ures in question are taken from the records of the Midhirst Cow-testing Association, and refer to the yield for the thirty-day periodt ending 14th November, 1913. of the ten best and the ten worst cows among the herds ,f the Association's members. It does !lot follow, though it is quite probable that some of the "scrubbers" and the 5breadwinners" are to be found to ,ether grazing on the same farnm Take a hypothetical case and ima gine two farms, side by side, on, say, the Salisbury-road, and suppose that Mr. A., the owner of one farm, has all the good cows, and Mr. B., his neighbour, all the wasters.
