Firewood. Problem. Scarcity of firewood is being folt in tho townships between Dandcnong and Wavragol) close to wliich thou sands of tons of first-class fuel is destroyed yearly, boing classed by people who want to use their laud as an unnecessary ovil. Although millions of tons of good firewood is burnt yearly, &lt;jl- is lying iu the paddocks within 50 miles of Melbourne, it is bo far away from the railway lines that it is not profitable to cart it to tho stations. Along the Gippsland lino tho firewood and other timber has been thinned out ou either side of tho line from one to ten miles, but it is considered that if tho Railway Com missioners were to run cheap lines of tramways into the forest country, whero timber is lying going to waste, tho difficulty would bo overcome.

WARRAGUL HOSPITAL. To the Editor "Free Press." [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip Free Press and Berwick Shire Guardian — 21 May 1914
WARRAGUL HOSPITAL. To the Editor " Free Press." Sir,—The Hon. the Treasurer, when ou a visit to the AVarraguI Hospital last month, was so impressed with the need of a more up-to-date operating room that he offered to grant £ for £ towards the cost of erecting and equipping a new one. The estimated cost for same is about £400. A small and active committee has taken tho matter in liaud, feeling sure that the' people of the district will readily respond to this generous offer, and so enable this much-needed addition to our District Hospital to bo carried out. Will you, Sir, give your usual ready asaistance, in tho cause of Charity, by leceiving and acknow ledging donations for this purposo sent to you in your part of the district ? Yours faithfully, B. DAVIS, Treasurer. Warragul. 18/5/14. (As uumorous poraona from Bunyip and distriot are treated annually at tho Warragul Hospital, wo shall bo ploaood to recelvo and acknowledge donatiouii.—Ed.

CORRESPONDENCE. HOW FARMERS ARE ROBBED. (To the Editor "Free Press.") [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip Free Press and Berwick Shire Guardian — 21 May 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. HOW FA-KMERS ARE ROBBED. (To the Editor " Free Proes.") Sir,—Iu last week's issue of youv paper appears a letter under the heading of " How. Farmers are Robbod." The writer, Mr. Vahlberg, is of course speaking generally, and does not assert tliat all agents are robbers. That would be unfair. There are honest and dishonest people iu all walks of life. The lottor is a very interesting and instructive one, because the facts contained theroin show that the farmers who sold their produce to the members of the Dealers' Union received hotter prices that way than by selling through agents. There is nothing surprising in this, because by selling direct to the dealers and hawkers they :ictcd iu accordance with the true |n indoles ot co - operation ; that is, ihey eliminated the middleman and got nearer the consumer. The movement., is iu the right direction, and should be encouraged. Perhaps later on their operation!) will be extended, and include other lines of produce besides...
DISTRICT DOINGS. GARFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip Free Press and Berwick Shire Guardian — 21 May 1914
district doings. GARFIELD. .A tca-uicotiug aud concert is to bo held oil the ovening of Wednesday, 27th • inst., in connection with the Garfiold Methodist Church. L'or some time past a movement has been on foot to start a co operative store at Garfield, and since the stores occupied by Messrs Dess and Gabbctt Were destroyed by fire it is apparent that there is ample scope for such a concern. During the past few weeks preliminary meetings have been held, and Mr. H. Hourigan has been appointed chairman of the movement. It is felt that a store could bo erected cheaply while the new hotel is being built, and that it would not take a great deal of capital to carry 011 if sonic of the district farmers take an interest in the pro posal. A meeting to further the movement is to be held on Friday evening, June 5th, iu the Garfield Hall, when the general public are I invited to attend.

CORRESPONDENCE. HOW FARMERS ARE ROBBED. (To tliu Editor " Free Pi-obs.") Sir,—In the last few editions of your valuable paper have appeared under this heading appropriate letters illustrating instances on which local producers' have been victimised by middlemen. Purnsing " The Argus " report of a speech at Sandringham by Mr. W. H. Irvine, Attorney-General, it says—" The middleman, performs a function that other peoplo were either too ignorant or too Jazy to perform for themselve." Where ignoranco is bliss 'tis folly to be blis'tered. Sir, imagine a local farmer who is. not ' too lazy' taking a trip to market with each ton of producc he consigns, to assure the prospeotivo purchaser that the potatoes are not 'Btale' and so bring the market value to 'his' pocket. Yours, etc, ' ANXIOUS TO VOTE.'

For the Men on the . Land. The date fixed for the" stallion parade at Bunyip is Friday) 4tk Soptombor. ■ Ai the Melbourne) c&ttlo sales last week a bullock sold for Mr. D- J Bourke, of Monomeith, realised the high price of £17/5/, whilst a number of others averaged £15/10/8. This demonstrates the fatteniug capacity of the Monomeith country. A fow days ago. a mob of sheep were placed in Mooro Park, Kilmore, where there is a prolific growth of grass, chiefly Capo weed. They ate too freely of the weed, and 55 sheep died. Tho sheep wero all ewes, due to lamb early, and the loss is estimated at £65. Thoy wore to bo taken to Cobdeu tho day thoy wero found dead. The abnormally dry sumnior and autumn considerably affected potato crops in the Blampicd, Newlyn and Kingston' districts. Tho yields are* poor, and a large percentage arc affected with grub. Tho districts named will not average moro than one ton and a half of markotable potatoes per acre. This is tho lowest average for mauy...
Bunyip Reservoir. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip Free Press and Berwick Shire Guardian — 28 May 1914
Bunyip Reservoir. In connection wiili the establishment of a reservoir at Bunyip North, Mr. W. S. Keast, M.L.A., has placed three important aspects beforo Mr. Catta-. nach, of the Water Commission. Firstly, if the water cau bo conserved in a largo basin, it is considered that there would be very little obance of flooding the Koo-Weo-Rup Swamp country; secondly, that a scheme ia required for supplying water for domestic purposes, and for tlio naval baso, Fraukston, Car rum, Chelsea, and Aspendalo; thirdly, Mr. Beast points out that if the swamp wants irrigation sufficient water may be obtained behind tho Bunyip town ship. Ho has ako asked tho Water Commission to get a further report j than that seoured by Mr. Chuckie as | to the suitability of the site for storage purposes. Mr. Keast is endeavoring to induce officials of tho Commission to visit the distriot as soon as possible, together with a I Parliamentary party.

The iecently-appoint«d secretary (Mr. 0. G. Salmon) tendered his resignation owing to pressure of other business, bat agreed to act nntil another secretary is appointed. Consideration was given to the protest entered by Mr. J. O'Connor, of Warragul, against Mr. J. Lowan being awarded the prize for yearling bull- at the last show, on the ground that he did not comply with the regulations. Some time ago the society allowed Mr. Lowan a month in which to sign a declaration, but he has net done so. It was agreed to allow him another week in which to forward a declaration. The financial position of the society ig not satisfactory, and something will have to be doao to place the society on a better basis than at present. It was mentioned that there is a likalihood of tha next military tournamsnt being held at Garfield or Longwarry u...
