100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AH "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 4 November 1914

100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AH "AD." This idea that you have lived so Ions; in town that everybody knows you and you don't need *o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to adven'-sing, indiffeience to doing business as rt - is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to giow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store if. the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordei house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper. and-Sga-lhat it is ch-'.ni;——" thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once.a month.. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with a general local circulati...

THE EXISTING DROUGHT LONG LAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 4 November 1914

THE fiXESTINQ DROUGHT LONG LAKE. The following appeared in Fri day's "Argus" under the nom de plume of " Bulga" i— "I would like to make known through your valuable columns the position in which we farmers, who depend on the Long Lake water scheme, are .placed. At the present time many ot' us have our tanks quite dry, and so have to cart water, in many cases five and more miles, for our horses and other stock. We have enough dry feed to see the stock through and would get on fairly well if we had suffijiest water to enable us to keep our teams going, cart ing .stumps, &c.,'to help make up for the loss ot our crops. Now, if we have to cart water, we can not use our teams for the above work. Our trouble is that ur supply is to be diverted to supply the people at Quambatook before supplying us. About 12 years ago our scheme was begun, and since then each year, whether we got water or not, we have been paying rates to cover the cost of the pump, channels, pumping expenses and up...

It Is found over the greater portion of the low country jungle, and although ot tto great size compared with bears of other countries, it gives good sport, rlhe native fears it more than any other animal of tile: jungle, with the excep tion of a rogue or must elephant. The best season for bagging the Ceylon bear is just prior to the hurst of the monsoon. No rain hav ing fallen for a long time, all the streams and tanks are reduced to mero puddles of muddy water, and to camp in the jungle at this season re quires no small amount of enthu siasm. Our camp was pitchcd near a grove ot coconut trees, by the side of a small stream, in which flowed a browny semi-fluid concoction errone ously named water, and this com prised our sole supply for drinking, cooking, and bnthing purposes".

Bulk Handling. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 4 November 1914

Bulk Handling. When in Melbourne recently, Mr C. Shaw, of Quambatook, met Mr H. Napper, of Sale, who won the prize of £50 for the best system of handling grain in bulk. Mr Shaw was very much im pressed by what he heard, though in his opinion, the scheme has one or two disadvantages. One is the loss of time in pulling the waggon heme and drawing it back again to the farm, while the other is the cutting out of a round from the crop, which will only give a boxful to the round. Mr Napper was thinking of leaving for the seat of war, but the Department has author ised, him to make a practical test of-his scheme at his own home at theyexpense of Government. THE COST. In dealing with this qu2stion '-Hick ory " in the Australasian says : — The figures given by Mr Napper, who won the Payne prize at the Royal show for his method, are based on the handling of 5,000 - bushels of 'grain for the season. Larger quan tities "will show the results cvnn 11191*0 in favor of the hulk system but the 'dif...

MRS E. GADSDEN. It cams as a shock to the many friends of Mr and Mrs E. Gads den and their respective families when the sad news became known that Mrs Gadsden had passed away. The deceased young lady (who was but 25 years of age, and a daughter of Mr and Mrs Harkins), after the birth of her child a week previously, did not progress as favorably as was ex pected. Dr. A. Burke-Gaffney was called in three days prior to the demise, and was unremitting in his attention. On Monday morning Dr. Webster, of Boort, was 'phoned for, and he arrived post haste per motor, but only to find that the patient was beyond medical aid, having breathed her last a few minutes before noon of that day. The cause of death was peritonitis. Our sympathy, as well -as that from far and wide in the Quam batook and adjoining districts, goes out to the bereaved husband and parents and relatives of de ceased in this their sad affliction.
