ELMHURST. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
ELMHURST. (From our Correspondent.) Almost every householder in our little town is without good drinking water. " Water is being supplied prin ýipally now from the- shire windmill, which, up to the present, has been do ing- excellent work. .The potato crops are suffering from .he dry weather. In -a good many instances the crops are withering off, and a large area is under cultivation this year. - - The Elmhurst Cricket Club has car ried off the district premiership, with Lcxton second. ,The little railway through. here is sometimes a convenience, being about equal to inconvenience. You need not expect goods till -you see them. Very often they come through, but are overcarried and. lodged further along the line. After a few days or a .week they come back again. The train service is miserable, and there are. no trucks available. Wood cut tersisay it takes about a week for a truck of wood to reach the Langi Logan.
