To Develop the Bust. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 16 January 1915

To Develop the Bust. A simple, safe, and harmless way in which any lady, no mailer how thin or old, can increase her bust development from two to five inches in a few weeks is to take 20 grains of phormoid, a standard concen trated food product, just before each meal. For convenience, it is best to ask your chemist to supply you with the standard phormoid tablets, which contain 20 grains each, For a few shillings you can get enough to last you two weeks, during which time your bust should devolop from one to two inches. Many ladies report five inches development in four weeks, and at the same time marked improvement in the general health. Phormoid is pleasant to the taste.

DISTRICT NEWS. CROSSLEY. Mrs. John Broderick, who died at Cross ley last Saturday night, was a very old resident of the place, having arrived here in the middle fifties. At the time of her death her age was 73 years. Deceased was of a gentle and amiable disposition, and was held in high esteem by all friends and neighbors. She leaves a family of seven, sons and one daughter. Requiem mass was celebrated at the Crossley Church on Monday, after which a large funeral left for the Tower Hill cemetery. The Rev. J. Kerin officiated at the grave side, and Messrs. Rundell and Son carried out the mortuary arrangements. Barley crops in general were light this season, with notable exceptions, particu larly about Crossley. The Prior variety turned out best, but there were also good crops of other varieties. Up to fifty bushels to the acre have been thrashed, and the sample is excellent, A good many lots have been purchased by Mr. Harrington at from 5s to £s 5d per bushel. To all appearances the ...

Local Produce Market. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 16 January 1915

Local Produce Market. Potatoes.-Heavy deliveries arc being made-too great for the demand. The market had been firm at £4 for over a week, but on Thursday merchants sud denly stopped buying, as they had suffi cient on hand for orders. The same state of things existed at Illowa and Crossley. Yesterday there was no improvement, merchants not operating. Farmers will doubtless discontinue digging, if they have not already done so. Onions.-£8 7s 6d was paid during the week for a few tons. Barley.-A few sales have been made at 5s 6d per bushel, but so far business has not been extensive. Buyers appear to be very cautious, and are only operating on the better qualities. Oats.-Fair quantities of oats are offer ing, and buyers consider most of the sam ples submitted so far on the thin side. Prime samples are worth up to 4s 6d, but really good oats are hard to obtain. The Melbourne potato market collapsed on Thursday. Buyers are holding off, and business is practically at a standstill. Prime t...

The Day. The author of this poem, which has had an enormous sale in Great Britain for llio Patriotic Fund, 1B Mr. Henry Chappell, a railway portor ab Bath, England. Mr. Chappell is known to his comrades as the " Bath Railway Poet." A poem such as this lifts him to the rank of a national poet. You boasted the Day, and you toaslcd the day, And now the Day has oome. Blasphemer, braggart, and coward all, Little you reok of the numbing ball, The blasting shell, or the "while arm's" fall, As they speed poor humans home. You spied for the Day, you lied for tho Day, And woke the Day's red spleen. Monster, who asked God's aid Divine, Then strewed His seas with the ghastly mine; Not all the waters of the Rhine Can wash thy foul hands clean. You dreamed for the Day, you schepied for the Day ; Watch how the Day will go. Slayer of age and youth and prime (Dofenceless slain for never a crime), Thou art steeped in blood as a hog in slime, False friend and cowardly foe. You havo sown for the Day, y...

CONFERENCE AT KOROIT. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 16 January 1915

CONFERENCE AT KOROIT. A number of members of the Port Fairy-Macarthur Railway League waited Upon the committee of the Koroit Borough Council yesterday afternoon; and were welcomed by the Mayor. r Mr. Bailey, M.L.A., thanked the council for their courtesy, and said he attended as president of the league. Some years ago the people of Port Fairy formed a branch and got into communication with centres in the district. The people responded liberally, and the matter was |referred to the Railways Standing Committee, who took evidence. Owing to a change in the committee they arc going over the ground again. He was not afraid of any agitation to get the Koroit route, as he considered Port Fairy had a better case. If the Ko roit council got in now it might hang the matter up for two years. The league put in two years' hard work, and it would be a pity to block the thing at the- eleventh hour. If Koroit stood back and the com mittee's report about Port Fairy was ad verse, they would stand back...
