NEWS SUMMARY [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 26 February 1915

NEWS SUMMARY An excellent deposit of brown coal has been discovered at Lal Lal, and ar rangeinents are beillg made to tost 1i. The deposit,, which is less than a. mlile from the Lal Lal brick works, is in an unlintled, quantity. A return issued by the Fedrial Treasury show\s that on 15th February there was £23,225,213 wurth of Austra lian notes in circulation, against which the Treasury held in gold the sunm of £9,441,0007, or .10.05 pr" ceit. Tihe advances made out of the note issue havo yielded up to the present the stlln of £562,335 in interest. The inability of settlers inll the Banm awln district to obtain sullicient water for irrigation purposes is causing seri iout loss. A grazier front the River ina, who purchased sonoe 10,000 sheep,. and dopastured them otn different; blocks, is a heavy loser. It is stated that about 2000 sheep have d'te owing. to the scarcity of feed. Thousands of starving sheep have depastured recently-in the Yarra Glen district, and a11l paddock's have l...

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 26 February 1915

TURF TOPICS. (By "Plornington. ") With the Caulfield meeting added to Turi history, all is now plain sailing to the V.R.C. campaign, which will be gin on Saturday. Fortunately the rac ing so far has not caused many break downs among the horses. A few well engaged gallopers, such, for instance, as Aristsaeus, Audacity, and Averse, who were expected to take an import ant part in the present racing carnival have fallen out of the ranks for the time being owing to mishaps, but for tunately suflicient material of the right calibrle still roilains to ensure interest ing racing. It is generally agreed that, judged on paper, this is going to be one of the imost -interesting Newmarket IIan dicaps on record. The list of eligibles bristles with proved flyers, each and every-one of which should be equal to Imaking very slick time over the 'straight six furlongs. The team seems to have been. io well classed by the han dic'a er that it will not surprise me to:.seocit least a half-a-dozen of the f...
