Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 7 February 1914

Personal. Mr. T. Vinen speaks very highly of his treatment at the Port Fairy hospital by Drs. Coto and Orchard, and the matron and staff. He is doing as well as can be expected, and will return to Koroit in the course of a few days. Mr. Frazer, of the well-known firm of Ballarat printers, was holidaying in Koroit last week, and paid a courtesy call at the "Sentinel" office. Unlike printers who sometimes come to the town he was not on the look out for orders, and the visit was appreciated. Miss Ross, recenlly junior teacher at Koroit Stale School, is-now at the training college for teachers, Melbourne, having won a studentship. She will be there two years specialising in infant teaching, and will then most probably attend the Uni versity for a yet higher course. Miss Ross was a very popular with her scholars while at Koroit. No successor has yet been appointed. Mr. George Koran on Thursday under went an operation for appendicitis, at Mrs. Hallignn's private hospital. The opera tion, ...

Health of the Borough. HOUSE DRAINAGE PRACTICES CONDEMNED. At the borough council on Wednesday evening the Health Officer (Dr. Coto), reported:-"I regret to have to report that the condition of the drains in High street, and of the main drain, is very un satisfactory. As the tunnel through the show ground is blocked, some inches of stagnant water and mud are continually present in the open drain. I would ask that permanent improvements be carried out without delay; also that waste water be prevented running in street channels, 1 need hardly add that delay in keeping these drains in a sanitary condition en dangers thJ punlic health, and would entail heavy exposes should a severe out break of enteric lever occur." The Mayor-This matter is rather serious, and Agricultural Society will have to attend to the tunnel part of it. Cr.

THE ROMANCE OF A COMPOSER Benedelto Marcello, one of tlie moBt famous Venetian composers, fell in love with a beautiful girl named Leo nora Manfrotti, who married Paolo Seranzo, a Venetian noble. She died a short time after her marriage, a vic tim to the harsh and jealouB treat ment of her husband. Her body was laid out in state In the church of "Wei Frarl," and her lover actually succeeded in stealing the corpse and conveying it to a ruin ed crypt in one of the islands; and here he sat day and night by his lost love, singing and playing to her, as though by the force of his art he could recall her to life. Leonora had a twin Bister, Bliade, who was so like her that her closes! friends could scarcely distinguish them. One day Eliade heard a singer In a gondola singing so exquisitely that she traced the gondola to the de serted island, and there she learnt later the fate of her Bister's corpse and the Identity of Marcello. Aided by a servant Eliado substituted herself for her sister'...

Original Correspondence. [It must tje tjjstjnctly understood that we dq riqt identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.] FILTHY DRAINS. To THE EDITOR. SIR,-After reading a report in the press to-day of Wednesday's Borough Council meeting I cannot but express my regret at the action of the Mayor and those who voted with him in again shelving the question of allowing dirty water to be run into the channels in High Street, to the detriment of the health of the inhabitants of Koroit. Their action simply means that the stopping of the people from running filthy water into the channels will be deferred for a month, and it is well-known that this is the worst month for such a thing. 1 expect the other inhabitants of this street, as well as other streets, will be as indignant as I am at t|)e town being allowed to chance a fever epidemic. I see it is sajd tl)qt the Health Officer threatens if'the nuisance (9 not abated' he will report' it 'to tne BosAl of Health, ahd s...

Local Produce Market. Koroit, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 7 February 1914

Local Produce Market. Koroit, Friday. Potatoes.-Up t J Thursday fair deliveries continued to be made, £2 being the ruling rate. To day, however, tickets were not being marked, but .las will probably be paid. There is a steady demand, but a shortage of trucks has made tilings de cidedly unpleasant. The platform at the I Koroit station is fully taxed with produce, and it is estimated that there are about 300 tons ibereon. The shortage of trucks is said to be due to some extent to the un I sctllcd slate of the labor market. Those farmers who took the advice given through these columns just before last planting season to put in red potatoes are now benefiting. The crops lifted so far arc turning out satisfactorily, and the quality is first class. In several instances a six-tun crop is being dug, and those not yet lifted promise well There is now a wider margin than formetly in the price between tV'd and y/hi'eskins, and it is becoming increasingly 'evldfcnt- tjiat ill order to make and ...

TH \Z AND SEouw fiiU ^(U-ocatc. ! PUBLISHED EVERT SATURDAY SATURDAY MORNING FEBRUARY 7. Current Topics. The potato season at Bunyip (states a correspondent) is about six weeks later than last vear, and numerous diggers are camped in the district awaiting employ ment. On the Kooweerup Swamp the crops are much lighter than last year. Several farmers are using potato digging machines. In a day one machine does the work of about four men. The late rain caused the withering grass to grow with renewed vigor, but more rain is needed for the late potato and pea crops. So far only about half a dozen trucks of potatoes have been sent away from Bun yip station. At the Campcrdown races, a man in formed Mr. Frank Grant, who was selling tickets at the outer gate, that he had not given him sufficient change. Mr. Grant replied that he did not think that he had made a mistake. The man was sure that Mr. Grant had made an error, and suggested that he should make up the difference right away. Mr. Grant...
