Koroit Annual Races. A SUCCESSFUL FIXTURE. The adverse conditions prevailing at present, attributable to the very dry period through which this district, in com mon with most other localities in Victoria, is passing, did not materially interfere with the success of the ICoroit St. Patrick's day race meeting, which took place on the club's popular racecourse on Wednesday last. The day was beauti fully fine, and the attendance compared favorably with previous meetings during recent years, gate takings reaching the highly satisfactory total of £262. Re ceipts from other sources were on a par, and considering the circumstances men tioned above there should be a satisfactory financial statement for presentation by the secretary. No fault could be found with the manner in which the meeting was conducted, for, as usual, complete arrangements were made by the pains taking and courteous secretary to ensure comfort and conveniences for all. The chief topic of conversation during the day was t...

Shortage of Railway Trucks. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 20 March 1915
Shortage of Railway Trucks. Primary producers and others have lately been greatly inconvcnienced owing to the failure of the Railway Department to supply sufficient trucks for their require ments. In one instanco 80 trucks were ordered by a co-opcrativc association for tho transport of potatoes and onions from this district, and only 30 were supplied. The result is that potatoes lying on the siding for a number of days deteriorate. To the ordinary man in the street it should bean easy matter to cope with the farm produce in a year of drought when the railways have not to carry the usual enor mous wheat harvest, but the Railway Com missioners think otherwise. Owing to complaint* made to him Mr. H. S. Kailev> M.L A. for I'ort Fairy, waited upon the Railway Commissioners and complained of the treatment of the fanners and urged that more trucks should be made available. The Commissioners practically admitted that at present they are unable to cope with the trade. Mr. Bailey asked the...
Sunday Corner. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 20 March 1915
Sunday Corner. BY " RADIATOR." To many believers, tha Bible, which God intended for their possession, is yet an unexplored continent. Open your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ, that He may causo you to re ceive and enjoy all His precious gifts, If you can no longer vrork for God, pray for those who can. If you can not move earth by your speech, you may move heaven. Difficulty is sent to reveal to us what, God can do in answer to the faith that prays and works. We are saved that we may become workers together with God. Our Father ;has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Christ, that we may communicate those blessings to our fellows. Do not fret, or scheme, or bo impa tient ; God is doing all to make thy life full of favor and blessing. Heaven will be full ot wonder at the way in .which God has kept His word, and done all that He had pro mised, and more. Love is the crown of human nature ; the trait in which we most nearly resemble God-for God is love. There is a complete delive...
The New Company of Comedians. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 20 March 1915
New Company Comedians. One has only to glance at the advor tised personnel of the above, to be as sured that Koroil theatregoers are to be offered a rare attraction in "The Beauty Doctor." The name of Victor Prince is syuonymous with all that is real humor and artistic ability. When Mr. Prince organised his present com pany he realised exactly what would hit the public taste-a combination of exclusive artists in a revuesical musical comedy like "The Beauty Doctor." Mr. Frank Greene, the company's lending man, comes here with an euviable repu tation. For years he was associated with the leading comic opera com panies of America and the Continent. Then he spent a five years' contract with J. C. Williamson, and will be well remembered as the leading character in the "The Belle of New York," "The Merry Widow," and "The Quskor Girl." His performances are all noteworthy ones, and command appreciation. Miss Margherita Bedford, the charming young Australienne, will also be re membered as th...

Local Produce Market. Koroit, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 20 March 1915
Local Produce Market. Koroit, Friday. Potatoes:-Deliveries continue Rood, but as there has been such a constantly regular demand the market continues firm, and shows no signs of weakening. Kirst grade reds and Carmens are now quoted at £4 15s, first grade pinkoyes £4, second grade do. £315s. and stock potatoes £3 10s. The demand for the latter throughout Victoria is so good that it has been instrumental in increasing the price for all classes. If prices ruling locally during the past month are compared with those existing in Mel bourne, and the fact taken into considera tion that merchants pay for the bags and freight, it will at once bo seqn that the de mand referred to has been a great factor in keeping the market at such a high level. Onions.-First grade are worth £5 10s, good second grade £5, and smaller at con cessions. As there is such a large quantity of small-sized onions in the district it would perhaps be advisable to forward a consignment for stock feed as an experi ment....

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 20 March 1915
THE WAR. British activity in Northern France is believed to be part of an important driv ing movement against the enemy. In the Champagne country the French have secured possession after many weeks of an eminence which will facilitate their operations in the famous Argonne ridge country. The German losses at Ncuve Chapelle must have exceeded early estimates. No fewer than 5000- prisoners have arrived at Southampton. The third Australian Contingent has ar rived in Egypt after an uneventful voyage. In the British reply to America's Note, Sir Edward Grey shows no intention of departing from the resolve of the Allies to blockade Germany. The Allied fleets are reported to be using I-emnos, a Greek island in the /Egean Sea, 40 miles south-west of the Dardanelles, as a base.
