KORUMBURRA v. WONTHAGGI. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 July 1915
KORUMBUflRA v. WONTET.VGG-L The second meeting of teams under the auspices of the ab.ivn ;iss,>;i:Umns took place on Saturday last on the Korumbtu'tNi Agricultural Society's groau'd. The first meeting, which .was held at Wonthaggi last year, re sulted in favor of the visiting learn, but this year the boys I'r.iin Coal.jpolis more than held their own. Konim bnrra played in their association's uuifortn of maroon, while Wonfchaggi adopted the clnb colors of Sfc. Joseph viz., green and gold. But something must have happened to the equip ment department of both associations as they were short of uniforms, and the players presented a rather bizarre appearance. The Wonthaggi team, with their fellowers, journeyed by special train, which in the way of specials was very much out of the ordinary in the accommodation pro vided, and running well to time helped in no small way in the general enjoyment of the trip.

SIR J. JELLICOE AND A BLIND GIRL Kathleen Ton-, a"little blind girl of York, has received a letter from Ad miral Jellicoe, thanking her for the gift of a woollen scarf which she had knit ted.

POPULAR FALLACIES. THAT COUNTRY AIR IS PURE AND TOWN AIR FOUL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 July 1915
POPULAR FALLACIES. . THAT COUNTRY AIR IS PURE AND 'I'O'iVX AIR FOUL. City air--is unduly abused. Serious .contamination is nearly always mainly .an indoor condition. Tile air of bod rooms in the country is often ton times as foul as tho open air of the densest city; indued, tliero arc very few bed rooms . in which the pollution every night does not -greatly exceed that of any ordinary outside air. There is no excuse -for this. Air can be kept pure and healthy in the smallest town cot tage by^'providing a sufficient inlet and outlet, .ami thuB ensuring a free' cur rout' all night. This would be provided by'an ordinary fireplace and a sash win ,dp,(\' wille open-not merely opened,a ??few. inches-and unobstructed by any blind or curtain. When the bedroom it self has no fireplace, the door leading out of the bedroom and into the>itehen can be left open. Then, if the kitchen window be shut, the air to supply the chimney must enter through the open window of the bedroom.' If windows ar...

WANDERING CATTLE IN SHIRE OF PHILLIP ISLAND AND WOOLAMAI. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS). SIR,-In your last issue reference was made to a discussion at the last meeting of the above Council, re the quastion of Wandering Cattle on roads, in connection with an application that the ranger be relieved from his duties for six months or until farmers have had time to recover from the effects of the late drought. As a farmer in the Shire referred to, I strongly pro test against the council interfering .i'n any way with the provisions laid down under the Pounds Act. Every facility should be given to our ranger who has always carried out his duties in a fear less and conscientious manner Of course it cannot be expected of him, to be always where wanted, but if any farmer is pested with wandering cattle he should write about the matter. These wandering stock are a curse to farmers, and mostly belong to specu lators who buy in one market and turn them adrift until the next, or until they can ...

HOSPITAL BALL. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 July 1915
HOSPITAL BALL. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) SIR,-I, like Mr Brunt, did not intend to add further to the correspondence of this subject, but I cannot allow the misstatements in Mr Brunt's letter to go unchallenged. First: I said there was only one dissentient again3t the ball and I still say there was only one. I should know what parses at our meetings better than Mr Brunt. Second : I said that Mr Brunt attended a local ball and I say again he did, as also did Mrs Brunt and daughter. Again Air Brunt says that I inferred that Mrs Brunt was the writer of "Hospital Sympathiser," where he gets that idea from I do not know, it is certainly not from my letter, and I am not curious enough to ask who was the writer. Third : Mr Brunt says he did not predict a failure, well he said " that all he had met were of his opinion as to the propriety of holding a ball in war time" and as Mr Brunt must meet a large portion of the resi dents in the course of a week or two, 1 think that was predictio...

A VALUABLE HINT. Those who get on in the world are those who never fail to take a valuable hint when it comes their way. Here is a hint which may prove of great value to you. Mrs. T. Elliott, Mines-road, Korum burra, says:-"For years I suffered from backache and other distressing symptoms of kidney trouble, such as disordered secretions, dizzy attacks, and a dull, tired feffling that I could not shake off. I tried all sorts of kid ney remedies in the. hope of getting well again, but until I got Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills nothing did me any good. These pills were one day brought under my notice as a cure for disordered kidneys, so I bought some. The ilrst couple of bottles gave me relief, and eight bottles made a com plete cure. Before I took Doan's Backache Kidney Pills my sufferings were awful, and I used to feel some times too ill to move, but I am in j splendid health now, and have been every since my cure was effected six years ago.
