Printed MONDAY & THURSDAY EVENINGS MONDAY, MARCH] 16, 1914. Slanderous Statements. Folly and Ignorance. A writer describing himself as "Travell ed," has been treating readers of the "Argus" to a series of statements, de falnatory of Casterton and this com munity, that are not only. false, but ex posea the folly and ignorance of the writer. ."Travelled" is quite clearly a resident among us; (who may have "travelled" from, say Sandford, or even as far as from 'ew Zealand to Caster ton) and therefore mncurb the stigma at taching to "the dirty bird that fouls its own nest." ,Hiis ignorance of the wide difference, with marked distinction, be tween "infectious" and "contagions" diseases is shown in the ,hrase "but hero (Casterton Hospital) typhoid fever patients are placed in wards with per sons suffering from broken arms, and other non-infectious ailments." Now typhoid is no more "infectious" than is a broken arm. It is "contagious" it is true. For this very reason, the proper pl...

WATER SUPPLY. ESS LAGOON—THE LAST RESORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 March 1914
WATER7 SUPPLY. Ess LAGOON--THE LAST RE SORT. Sale yards and site disposed of, Councillors settled down to talk about water and watersheds and many other things more or less remotely associated with the question at issue, the President at an early stage letting it be un derstood that he intended to allow wide latitude in debate, so. that the problem of getting good water for the poople of Casterton could be discussed from all points .of view. Strlangoly ollullgl, however, there was little muntion made of anything else but the Ess Lagoon and Mr Fowler's scheme for sup ply from that source. Mr Orifliths exhaustive report on watersheds west of tihe town, which it was. understood was specially named in convening the meeting as one of the subjects to be dealt with, was practically not considered at all, and was barely mentioned. It soon became apparent, how ever, that Mr G riflithls' report had not been ignored by Conmcillors, but that those of thlem who had been at )ainiH to exalmineO th...

At the Council Table. Notes and Comments. Every seat at the table was oc cupied, every Councillor in his place, when the Glenolg Shire Council met on Thursday. Coun oillors had met "to do something" -and they did it. It was a special meeting, convened for dis cussion of two special subjects water supply for Casterton, and plans and specifications prepared by the Shire Engineer for Muni cipal Sale Yards to be erected on the site at Bahgallah, purchased nearly 2 years ago for that pur pose. And the President very soon made it clear that no other than these two subjects could be discussed. OUT OF ORDER. Cr Koch had notified intention to table a motion that had for its object a surrender of the already purchased site at Bahgallah, and the purchase of another site near Pearce's Bridge, which lie, and others supporting his view, con tend would suit the convenience ,of a majority of stock owners who patronise Castorton sales better I than that at Bahgallah.

The Cheshunt Murder. &nbsp; Some months ago, Margaret Catherine Ledwell, a girl of 19 years, was mur- dered while walking from her home at Cheshunt, near Deloraine, Tasmania, one Sunday afternoon to join her parents, who had gone on before her to the house of a neighbour. A young man, named Joseph Harry Belbin, was convicted of the murder, and was hanged on Wed- nesday last at Hobart gaol.

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 19 March 1914
MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABIOR TROUBLES (By Stephen Black, in "The Daily Mail.") Tie presont trouble on the land, from where is drawn practically the whole of the world's regular gold supply, originated largely in the tragic deeds of last July 4 and I. It may vaguely have come from still farther back, but shape and delinition emerged six months ago. South Africa, the graveyard of states men's reputations, has problems which no other country on earth possesscs; and the wisest men have failed time and again to cope with them. Certainly the Botha Government prior to last July understood little of the Itand's real soul; the soul of a wild, reck less race of men Jumbled together among scholars, mining msathemali clans, younger sone, and other remit tance men. The same spirits that rec belled against the Kruger Governllent and the children of these men are o0 the Rand to-day; and the fatality of their affairs is that they are governed as Kruger governed thenm-from a town only thirt...
