A few days ago the lead ing business men got information that a well-known Kerang draper was about to make a sudden descent upon the town on the following market day.

Mean while', the astute storekeepers had pos ted agents at all the principal entrances to the town, armed with printed circu lars headed "Important," and signed by "The Cohuna Traders." As ea.h ...

SPORTING NOTES. THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 4 November 1914
SPORT.NG MOTES. (By Ramblsk.) THE "TURF. Dorby Day was a wet one. The weather, out of pure cussad nesg, broke on Saturday in the city, and rain poured relent lessly down on just and unjust alike, Those big drops of the element which \v&lt;? in the Mallee are so sorely in need of rui:ie:l thousands of friljs and furbelows,. and made the fair members of the " smart set"(?) look like just, human beings after all.

THE Quambatook Times. OUR MOTTO: "Truth is great, and will prevail." WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1914. TACT NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 4 November 1914
-s-a-THE If our motto: " Truth is great, and will prevail." WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1914. TACT NEEDED. The Legislative As sembly, in its wis dom, has seen fit to fix a maximum price on all foodstuffs, which was a wise proceeding, but it has not gone far enough, and the operations of the bill should be considerably extended.' The first step which the Govern ment should take would be to put a stop to the removal of wheat held by farmers and others in country districts. The Ministry has earmarked £100,000, which is intended to give relief to far mers whose crops have failed. This amount is destined for the purchase of seed wheat to assist those who are unable to buy their season's supply, and will be un able to sow any crop unless they, are assisted. In the first place, the Government should take ac tion to prevent the wheat in any district being removed, but should purchase it at the price fixed. Such wheat is acclimatised to the districts in which it is grown, and is more likely to ba...
A REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 4 November 1914
. A REVIEW.; MrH.A. Hunt, Commonwealth Meteorologist, has issued a re view of the weather in Victoria during the month of October, in which he states :—" The present drought lost none of its intensity during the month of October, which makes the sixth month of the severest drought ever known in Victoria—going back as far as 1S5S. At most stations in the Wimmera, Mallee and northern country no rain at all fell during this month. The extraordinary dryness of this six months' period may be realised from the fact that over northern areas, at all events, no less than four months, namely, June, August. Septem ben and Octobsr. established i-e cords for rain deficiency, while the rains of May and July were in both cases much below aver, age. The result is that for the vitally important winter half of the year, May—October inclusive the rainfall ov2i; northern areas this year is barely half that of the previously worst on record, viz-, 1902.
