KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 February 1914
KILLARNEY. (From our Correspondent.) The continued dry weather is having an alround bad effect, and householders are becoming anxious. The water tanks have given out, and in many instances the wells are going dry. Potato crops that are still un- dug are ruined by the grubs. Six ton crops are reduced to three tons of marketable tubers. A good fall of rain is required to re- move the ill effects of the dry spell. Onion bagging is going on &nbsp; apace, many growers having al- ready disposed of the greater part of their crops. Prices are good, L7 10s being obtained for delivery at Port Fairy, and should prices continue, an early clearance of the crop will be effected. Mr Coleman Gorman's block of land, containing 10 acres (near post office) has been disposed of to Mr John Mugavin, the price being L95 per acre. At the monthly meeting of the Crossley branch of the Australian Catholic Federation, held in the schoolroom on . Tuesday evening, the secretary (Mr D. Shanley), who was d...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 March 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Bditor of the "Gazette," Sir,--The purpose of our expen ive compulsory army is threefold. ro give the boys physical education, to defend ourselves from invaders, and thirdly to maintain order. The first is not effectively done because those who are imperfect and need excersising ,are excluded. The second is providing for a conting ency more remote than the millen nium. The third is the one and only effective reason for our army. The dislocation of order is against the interest of the whole commun ity, and it is the Government's duty to maintain that order. But if the machinery they create to do it is expensive and cumbersone, it is the duty of the citizens to protest against that method and, in doing I so are not demanding the Govern ment to relinquish their duty. For the maintenance of order a police force is necessary and a small army of soldiers. This force with the ready response of volunteers the country has always received when the case of emergency aris...

Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 March 1914
mportant Concerning some parts of the die trict news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous power of knowing what is happening in all the area of circula tion. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence -to cease I It no one else is doing it for your district will YOU try on these lines I. Send ac counts of public and social events in year township or neigborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents, concerts, matters touching the industries, etc, Write your name in some corner ; not for printing, but for good faith. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Dod not bother about grammar -or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The beareet skeleton is enough,. Write on one side of the paper only. Give infor' mation, but let criticism alone.
