    TRAFALGAR.
    Burns must have been supremely animated in speaking of Dame Nature when he wrote
    -" Her prentice hand she laid on man,
    And then she made the lassies 0."
    This just reminds me of matrimony, as on 1st July Trafalgar South scored another win in this line, when Mr. P. F. Teychenne and Miss Hall were joined together by the Rev. S. Sandiford. Everything went off most merrily, the weather being most propitious for the occasion.

    Interview with Fred Hall - One of the most advanced and successful dairymen in Gippsland is Mr. F. H. Hall, of Ercildoune, whose farm is situated a few miles from Cranbourne, on the Frankston road.

He arrived in Victoria when quite a young lad in 1833..... and how he runs his dairy farm.
