Farrell’s flat

Farrell’s Flat.—The Guardian remarks that Hanson, generally known as Farrell’s Flat, is showing unmistakable signs of progress. Several new buildings have been erected during the last few weeks and others are in progress, besides considerable additions to the hotel now occupied by its owner, Mr. J. H. Bleechmore, late of Mintaro. Large quantities of Northern wool are arriving at the station daily, and the ensuing wheat season will sustain the prevailing activity there. Attention has been drawn to the fact that while water for the many teams of horses and bullocks constantly arriving is both scarce and expensive, the large supply that might be secured from the rainfall on the extensive roof of the railway goods shed is allowed to go entirely to waste. Surely the cost of a tank in which it might be saved would be money wisely spent.
