Co-operation, as Applied to the Dairying and Farming Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

Co-peration, as Applied to the Dairying and Farming Iddustry. Return to our own country--Australia. Co-operation has undoubtedly made great progress in our country, but still our farmers want waking up. The Age wrote some time ago : " The Victorian farmer is seemingly. content to go on in definately in the old humdrum way and allow himself to be perpetually robbed by the greedy and economically useless middleman." Every one realises, that the position of the dairying industry to-day is due to our co-operative factories and to the fact that a large proportion of the butter is produced in factories owned and managed by the farmers themselves and because they have gone one step fur ther by establishing their own co-opera tive selling companies. It would be a sorry day for the dairy farmers in the Commonwealth if their co-operative in stitutions lost control over production and marketing. Throughout the length and breadth of our land there are these factories, and the only weakness in t...

Good News for Motorists. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

Good News for Motorists. -0' - -o Many. motorists who go about in dread of their- car catching fire, owing -to petrol. drippings in the tray becoming ignited, will be in terested _to learn that the London police anthorities now compel all the Motor Omnibus _Companies to fit a small sheet metal chute under the carburetter to carry away -all petrol drippings, and thus prevent their falling into the oil tray. This provision has proved a great success, -and no doubt the practice of the Omnibus Companies as re gards this little detail will yet be generally adopted on private cars. The small outlay entailed is a good insurance against fire anyway.

Koroit Races. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

Koroit Races. It was expected that there would be a record crowd on Tuesday (St. Patrick's day) on the well-appoin ted course of the Koroit Racing club, and the beautiful weather on that day helped to that end. All the roads leading to the course were for an hour prior to the first race starting thickly dotted with motor cars and every other description of vehicle, and although the day was hot observed asa half-holiday in Port Fairy-it might well have been for all the business that was done a large number. of local and district residents were included in the big gathering on the course, Tyren darra, St Helens. Yambuk, Orford, Macarthur, Rosebrook, To.olong and Killarney districts all sending contingents. The gate takings amounted to ,292, which is about £20 better than last year. The bookmakers were as numerous as ever. There was a protest in the Trial stakes by the rider of Vodski against Glen Kirk's rider, but it was dismissed. The racing, on the whole was very interesting, but th...

Overland Cycling Trip. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

Overland Cycling Trip. -0- - E. F. Reichenbach, a well-known Victorian road rider, who has done considerable riding throughout the eastern states of the Common wealth, intends cycling overland from Adelaide to Port Darwin at an early date. Should the over land route be found in condition, Reichenbach will on the return trip across Australia make an effort to reduce Arthur MacDonald's long standing bicycle record of 28 days, 15Y2 hours, from Port Darwin to Adelaide, a distance of 2650 miles. The merit of this great ride can be appreciated when it is stated that MacDonald's ride, accomplished on a Dunlop shod Swift, has stood for 16 years.

Cycling and Motoring Notes [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

Cycling and Motoring Notes This year's Grand Prix, set down for running on July 4th, promises to be one of the most spectacular and most keenly contested motor car road races .yet held in the world. The splendid total of 39 entries has already been received, and there may yet be others at double rates. This year's race will be held on a 233 miles circuit near Lyons (France), which will be negotiated 20 times, making a - total of about 470 miles. The con test will be a thoroughly inter national one, as the following countries will be represented : France, with 12 cars ; England with 6 ; Germany with 8 ; Italy with 9 ; Belgium with 2; and Switzerland with 2: Few motorists realise the degree of accuracy that is now incorpor ated in the high grade- car engine. This particularly applies to the turning of pistons to fit cyclinders. The thickness of a thin piece of paper measures about three one thousandths of an inch; yet the manufacturer of a high-class motor engine would hold up his han...

POETRY POPULAR [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

POETRY POPULAR "Jacob Omnium," in "The Book seller," states that Mr Harold Monro, who courageously started the Poetry Book Shop in Devonshire street, Theo *bald's road, just twelve months ago, is able to declare himself quite satisfied with the result of the first year's work ing of the experiment. The reading room, it appears, has been so much appreciated that people have some times had to be turned away through lack of seating accommodation, and, in the more !practical matter of sales, encouraging business appears to have been done.

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 March 1914

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS It is surprising how many quaint customs and beliefs concerning New New Year's Day still survive in out of-the-way places (says "The Westmin ster Gazette"). One of the oldest cus toms, which originated in ancient Rome, is the giving of presents. This custom flourished' at the English Court until the seventeenth century, and still exists in Scotland. A strange belief in some parts of the country is that no washing must be done on New Year's Day for fear of washing some member of the family out of existence during the ensuing year. From Cornwall comes a superstitition which tells how to ensure a plentiful supply of money. On New Year's Eve a coin is placed outside upon the window-sill and must not be taken in until the New Year; money will then continue to come in all the year. (It is not advisable to put your coin on the sill of a ground-floor win dow, or money may go out instead of coming in!)
