Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (Newspaper) - April 5, 1907, Albury, New South WalesNational Library of Australia http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-page10817157 DISTRICT NEWS. Corowa.\ (From Our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday, April 2. The Easter holidays passed over very quietly, as they usually do. On Good Friday the local bowlers had a busy day. They played a Wagaratta team in the morning, and scored an easy victory ; and in the afternoon they played a return match against Yarrawonga, and, to the surprise of everybody, the visitors won. The scores in the respective matches were : — Wangaratta Match.— Rink No. 1— W* Pinkerton, G. Pinkorton, J. E. Lund holm and A. Pinkerton (capt.) (Wan garatta), 15. A. C. Leslie, P. K. Ritchie, J. R.

Both teams were entertained at din ner at the Globe Hotel, and a proposal that these matches should be played an nually on Good Friday was agreed to. On Easter Monday the local bowlers visited Albury and scored a victory, but the scores are not available at time of writing. The visit of the local hrass band to Balldale, fixed for last Saturday night, had to be postponed owing to many of the members heing unable to leave their employment. From a miller's point of view the Blue Stem variety of wheat is not a profitable one7*and Mr. Chicken, of the Netherby mills^ has resolved not to buy any rnore of it. Mr. J. H. Oswald, of the local cordial works, lost a bay mare — a rather valu able animal — under peculiar circumstan ces. Some time ago it was observed to run foul of a stone with one of its hind feet, and although no injury or cut was apparent, lockjaw set in. Efforts fail ing to get the animal's jaws apart after the lapse of some days, the aid of a bullet was sought; to put the beast out of misery early on Good Friday morning. The Rev. P. Hickey, parish priest, has gone away South oh- a well-earned holi day. During his. absence the Rev. Calis tus Henry will act as his locum tenens. JThe Mayor (Alderman A. A. Piggin) has gone away to Sydney to attend a Municipal Conference, I understand. His absence will' extend over a few days only. It is reported now that, although the Public Works Department has no objec tion to the council. allowing plumbers to make connections with the water mains, no permission will be given to use water on any account. I hear that the trouble over the pumping machinery is likely to be settled very shortly, and one of the contractors is expected from Melbourne to effect some alterations to meet the wishes of the department. It was somewhat fortunate for Mr. Falconer Fraser that there was a supply of water in the mains .yesterday, al though, owing, to the holiday, the num ber of -firemen present to use.it was small. Ah adjoining house, the property of Mr. Goldrick, was, together with its contents, totally destroyed by fire. At the time of the outbreak, about 2 p.m., the in mates 'of r both houses were . away. The contents of Mr. Eraser's house are repor ted to have been considerably knocked ' about. An accident of a rather serious nature happened on Easter Monday at tne Rut herglen. sports to Mr. Roe, who -with some others were in the .park in a gig. Some thing startled the horse and it bolted and finally commenced a violent kicking match. Mr. Roe was thrown out of the gig, and the wheel passed over his chest. The injured mail was brought over on an ambulance car and admitted to the local hospital. Another typhoid patient was also admitted on Saturday from Ruther glen. A very successful bazaar — promoted by the Misses Lizzie Cameron and Rita Piggin — was held in the grounds of Rose- ? bank, the residence of Mr. Duncan Ca- 1 meron, on Wednesday evening last, in aid of the Corowa Hospital. There were four stalls which were liberally patron ised by a large number of ladies and gentlemen. About £20 will be the re sult for the institution named, a grati fying one considering that tne whole af- ! fair was arranged by the children. Rain is urgently required right through out the district. Reports from several parts are to the effect that supplies have given out. In the town a water famine j rages. I never remember such a dry I spell for the first three months of a year as we have just gone through. Matters will be looking serious if it continues much longer. Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Whitty, of Tarra mia who have been on a trip to England, have returned and taken up their resi dence on their well-known estate. Mr. Harry Vickers, secretary of the Burryjaa and Cbreen F. and S. Associa tion is in receipt of the following letter from Mr. R. T. Ball, M.L.A. :— 'Depart- ment of Lands Sydney, 23rd March, 1907. — Sir, — Referring . to the letter of the 2nd March, 1907, presented by you from Mr. Hy Vickers, of Coreen, secretary to the local branch of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, applying on behalf of Mr. John Leighton, for the opening of a road of access through portion 161, parish of Lowes, county of Hume, I have the honor to inform you that a road has been left in the position desired, and a surveyor lias been instructed to effect the necessary marking on the ground when next in the vicinity. — I have, etc., Robt. M'Donald Acting UnderSecre tary.' The annual meeting of the Golf Club , was held last 'Wednesday evening. There was a large attendance of members, and Dr. Walcli was voted to the chair. The secretary (Mr. Broad) presented the an nual. 'report — of a lengthy nature — and it was received and adopted. The ba lance-sheet showed that the receipts for the year amounted to £60/12/1 and the expenditure to £54/2/10 leaving a credit balance of £6/9/3. Mr. Broad tendered his resignation as hon. secretary, and Dr. Walch (who had officiated before) was elected to the vacancy. The election of office-bearers resulted as follows : — President, Mr. M. Longfield ; vicepre sidents Messrs. W. Sherwin and H. Ogil vie; secretary, Dr. Walch ; treasurer, Mr. Kendall ; committee, Messrs. E. ,R. Nicolson;. A. J. Esau, J. P. Taylor,, and R. : M. Broad. The . annual picnic in connection with the. Church, of England and Presbyterian Sunday schools both took place yester day — the former in the racecourse and the lattor in the police paddock. Both were largely attended. Ure¥:fJ¥E^S.

You cannot do better than buy from us. LIMITED, ALBUM. G unbar. (From Our Own Correspondent.) Fridav. March 20. Ploughing was started here £ome time ago, but .the gromid was -so ? bard that people had to knock off. We had no rain here Avorthy of the name durinsr the last five weeks, in consequence of which grass ia very dry; and although the weather has been generally cold, yet the rabbits, in consequence of the dry grass were forced to go to tanks for water. Two men round the Gunbar township trapped 10,000 rabbits at tanks in a few months. They got £1 per 1000, and the pelts besides, so they made fair wages'. Of course, this process does not get half the rabbits. Rabbits a mile or so from a tank never come to water. On one hold ing of 0000 acres, 5000 rabbits have been caught at tanks this last month; but away out . Mosgiel way is where the rabbits aye.; A party of men were sent out to poison rabbits ? at tanks on a station about Mos giel; one man poisoned lff.OOO rabbits in one week. The lowest catch was for one man 13,000 a week. Now it sometimes bap pens that landholders on the south side of the Lachlan complain that their rabbits come from oft' the runs on the. north side of the Lachlan River. Then these people on the north side take their pens to pub licly repudiate the assertion of the south erners; and, when the paper warfare and rabbit inspectors' reports are over, the readers of their contributions are befogged and do not know' who is right and who wrong. But my authority had no interest in giving mo wrong information about the rabbits out Mosgiel way; moreover, he wns an eye-witness of what he told inc. Which talk goes- to prove that it was a wrong policy not to put the people on both sides -of the river under the one law as to rabbit extermination, and the sooner ?such is done the better.1 It is' bad enough to have the Government breeding rabbits on the east of us. and not ? .for landholders on* the north . of us to be permitted so much of their own way-iia to whether they will destroy rabbits oi''*hot. It looked like rain at Gunbar a week ago, but it passed away, and since then we have been - enjoying lovely summer weather. Lovely warm days, with the nights just cold enough to wish- for a bed quilt over one's blankets. Stock are doing very well, they have abundance of old grass, and. I hear of no real scarcity of water just yet. But. wells must be brought into requisition if the dry weather continues .much longer. The people here do not seem to be much con cerneel about the scientific prognostica tion of the comet on Easter Sunday. The subsidy bush: schools wore forced on the Statute-book principally by the Labor party, and it looks, aw if the* Carruthers Government were playing hide and seek on ? our member .' in order to make subsidy schools a dead letter; or is it -that 5,'a.id Government wants to make their surplus grow at the expense of .uneducated .child ren in the bush? It is now five months since an application was made for a sub sidy school at Gunbar, and the only satis faction the applicants have got so far is an inquiry by an official as to where the proposed 'school is* to be, and which the road leads to it; so I presume ,if- there is not a road to a place it will be useless to apply for subsidy ecIiooI for suclr road less place. The officials answered the ap plicant curtly that the Department did not X supply books to subsidy schools1., sd the applicant is in a fog as to whether it will be to the pleasure of the Department if he (tlte applicant) chooses what books he likes for liis? and his neighbours' children. Government officials are never very cai'e- _ ful of the amount of paper they waste over the very moderate intelligence they impart on their big sheet of paper. -- Cyanide of potassium -is now being, used here to poison rabbits at tanks, in place ? of arsenic. From cyanide they die on the spot, so one can get their skins just as easily as if strychnine was the death agent used*, and it is easily dissolved in cold water. -, , * DENTAL NOTICE. ?MB. J.'.L.
