! NORTHERN OiSTRICI STANDARD [ with which is incorporated the Boort ! Standard, Korong Vale Lance, and Quam batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, August 5. Our Enterprise. I To-day we cuter upon another stage of progressive journalism. The new paper that lias been launched is the "Northern District Standard," which incorporates the "Boort Standard" and the "Korong Vale Lance." The new name widens the scope and influence of the paper on behalf of the people of this vast, district. The paper will be essentially a district one, and it will ever be our aim to advocate and push forward the work of the district as a whole.
