Certainly a little misty rain fell, but not sufficient to cause a solitary person to seek shelter. While the expectations of rain kep...

glxanldra & Pea 9tanda d RiO TLMR0 5 NEC TIMIDL FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1908, The continued drought in a greater por tion of this shire ts being felt keenly. Such trying times as those experienced at the present have never been known in the annals of the district. One old resi. dent who selected, in 1862, says he remembers that a similar state of affairs existed in that year, there being no rain for six months. At that time there was very little settlement, the country being grazed by sheep. The creoks are fast drying up and the U.T. and Johnson's Creeks have ceased to flow. The long ex pected rain appears to be as far off as ever, and as the people have been disap. pointed so often, very little notice is now taken of the repeated indications that have plesented themselves, times out of number, of a possible downpour. The police have had a busy time disposing of dead cattle and are keeping a watchful eye on those who are inclined to leave travelling stock within the bounds of the ...

YARCK SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 May 1908

YARCK 8PORTS. The attendance at the above sports, on Wednesday week last, was very meagre, indeed. It was though, by many that a mistake had been made by selecting a day so close to Spring Creek sports, as large numbers of people could not manage two holidays in one week, but those who conducted the affair rtuck manfully to their guns and made the beat of a bad job. President Crerar, and Secretary M. M'Menaman, and the other gentlemen associated with the gathering proved, unmistakably, that they were quite able to manage the spurts and deserve every ,credit for the manner in which they carried out the programme. All required was a liberal response from the public. This was not accorded. Notwithstanding, all present enjoyed themselves, and we feel certain should the same management favor the public at some more opportune time, their efforts will be rewarded with a much larger measure of success than that received last week. Some first-class sprinting was witnessed in the Maiden, Shel...
