Bushfield. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 March 1914
Bu-silfeld.. From Our Correspondent. The rain that has fallen here at intervals during 'the week was 'most -acceptable, and has brought great joy to many householders, whose tanks were getting very low. The rain will prove most' beneficial to our pastures and crops, and the prospects of a good season appear very reassuring, and dairymen can look forward hopefully to a good time. The retail price of butter at the moment is ls 4d per lb, locally, with a probability of a further rise. The St. Patrick's day carnival, to take place in Warrnambool on Saturday, promises to be a pheno menal success. The procession to the sports ground is expected to be one of the grandest sights ever witnessed in Warrnambool. Mr Harry Hawker, the Aus tralian, and world-renowned avia tor, is likely to give an exhibition on the Warrnambool racecourse shortly, but, it is not definitely decided yet.

LAURENCE STERNE "ALAS! POOR YORICK!" [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 March 1914
Tw `.^L AURINCE STERNE -f "ALAS! POOR YORICK!" Two hundred years ago to-day. Lau rence -Sterne, the immortal author -of "The Sentimental Journey" and "Tris tram Shandy," was born at -Clonmel. and the event is to be commemorated this evening by a dinner at' the Authors' Club. Mr Andrew Hope Haw kisis will preside, and Mr Edmund Gosse is to be the principal gu~est. (says the "Westminster Gazette" of November 24). Although Sterne was born in Ire land, there was nothing Irish in his connections or descent; and it was solely owing to the fact that his father, who was an army officer, hap pened to be stationed there with his regiment in 1713 that his distinguished son first saw the light of day in the Emerald Isle.. On the other hand, the family was essentially English, and for genera tions had dwelt in Yorkshire. Sterne's great-grandfather was in his day an eminent divine, and rose to the posi tion of Archbishop of York. In 1718 the family returned to their native county, and with the ex...

Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 March 1914
Important Ooncerning 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 If no.one else is doing it for your district- will YOU try on these lines 4 Send ac counts of public and social events in your townehip 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. Do not bother about grammar or spelling ; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The 'barest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give infor mation, but let criticism alone.
