THE ff oi'oit Jvcntinc! ANI> Sower dluU ^dvocatf, PUBLISHED KVKRY SATUBDAT SATURDAY MORNING DECEMBlvK 5, Current Topics. Accounts for subscription to the " Sentinel" are now being sent out. It is our custom to render these accounts once only during the year, and wc request that settlement be made before the end of December. The individual amounts are small and if payment is made promptly the work of bookkeeping is greatly facilitated. The announcement of the death of Mr. Michael Quinlan, of Hawkcsdale, caused general regret in the extensive district which stretches from the Eumeralla river to Koroit. For about 25 years-perhaps longer-the late Mr. Quinlan had been a member of the Minhamite Shire Council. He was a thoroughly practical councillor, and no one was more familiar with the Local Government Act. There were many stirring discussions in the council at the time the proposal was first mooted to build a new shire hall at Hawkcsdale, and later when the Eumeralla drainage scheme...

At the conclusion of the game, Mr. Evans extended a welcomc to the visitors, and, as president of the bowling association, congratulated them on having joined that body. Mr, Peters (president), on behalf of the Koroit club, said they had spent & pleasant afternoon, and weie quite satisbed with the result of their first match.

" Within the Law,". TO NIGHT AT MECHANICS' HALL. There arc limes in the country when people say, " I was sorry to miss that play," Such occasions are unfortunately rare, for up to now no serious effort has been made to cater for lovers of the drama outside the big cities of Australasia. An effort, however, is being made by a com* pany comprised of influential Sydney managers who have dccided to tour first class attractions in the country towns. The first offering will be a play of world-wide reputation, " Within the Law," arrange ments having been made for the rights of all the territory outsido the capitals of the Australian States. The company selected for the play is an expensive one, all the artists having been specially selected and rehearsed by Mr. IS. W. Morrison, the dis tinguished Williamson producer. Mr. Morrison was brought from America by the Williamson management to produce " Within the Law " nearly two years ago. The play ran for three months in Melbourne and four mont...

DISTRICT NEWS. KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 5 December 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. KILLARNEY. ; The splendid rain of the past) week lias made a wonderful improvement in potato and onion oropa. Both crops hare boon free from weeds, due to the dryness of the season. The late rains, however, has caused a plentiful growth of them, which will require immediate attention. A green growth of grass has also sprang up, but this will not be of long duration, as the warm weather which is sure to follow will burn it of! quickly. A ccimmoncoment has boen made at harvesting. Hay and early varieties cf barley (Prior) are in stooks. The retnrns from hay crops are very light, 21 tons per acre being about the best. Prior barley and Duckbill are the varieties grown, and the first named variety is expected to return decent yields. Duckbill is almost a failure; in many paddocks it is so short that it will be difficult to cut it with the reaper and binder. Many farmers would have turned stock on only thati the prospect of high prices for grain is assured. A fen holders of...
