BOORT. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

BOORT. The Hospital Sunday Cervices in a:d of the Ingle wood and Bendigo hospitals which are being conducted throughout the district by the Boort Fire Brigade Band are doing fairly well; but owing to the drought the collections are not nearly so good as last year, when a record was established. The first of the series was held at Boort, when £13 was realized, and the following SunJay at Lake Marmal the return was £9. Since the inception of these gatherings about-9 years ago over £503 has been sent to the hospitals. On Sunday the band visited Leaghur, when a fair atten dance turned'out. The speakers were Messrs R. Painter, W. II. Smith and F. Millikin The collection, which reached £11 12s was a surprise, but the Leaghur people are noted for their liberality, .and taking into consideration the drawbacks owing to the drought the collection was an excellent one. The hand contributed a nice programme, which was much appreciated by the paople. Next Sunday the br.nd will visit Barraport an...

The Water Famine. ' Dry Drains. Commissioner Mead's Broken Promise. A Strong Protest. A largely attended meeting of townspeople was held in the Me chanics' Hall on Friday evening to consider what steps should be taken to secure a supply of water for Quambatook. Mr S. Camer on presided. In September Mr Elwood Mead, accompanied by Mr II. Angus, M.L.A., visited Quambatook to confer with the people as to the best means of securing a supply of water for the town, as there was hardly any left either for stock or domestic purposes. After listening to the arguments of those present, Mr Mead, in reply to a question, promised that if the ratepayers would make four miles of channeling towards Cun nie the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission would con struct the other three miles to connect with the channel, and he stated that as soon as the channels were finished the water would be sent along from Long Lake and the tank would be filled from that source.

100 WELL KN0WHT0 HEED AH "AD." This idea thai you have lived so long !n town that everybody knows you and you don't need 'o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as :t it done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store s, the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will.not lose trade to-the.mail ordet ..house.— Of course he cannot aTtord to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, 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 circulation, wh...

Assisting the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

Assisting the Farmer. In a bad season farmers who are in need of assistance, espec ially those who show an inclina tion to work hard, will not lack financial support. The men on the land create the wealth of the country; their interests are closely allied with almost every financial institution and private commercial undertaking. They must therefore be kept afloat at all hazards. While the Govern ment will no doubt stand behind those who may temporarily re quire accommodation in the shape of ssfed wheat, individuals will also do their part in helping them to tide over a ti ne of stress. In the rural districts of the State the principal business transacted with farmers by storekeepers and others is done (says the "Ar gus") on a system of credit. A squaring up of accounts takes place after the harvest, in a good season debts are liquidited and a fresh page in the ledger opened. •If the yield is only moderately satisfactory probably as much as can bs spared is paid oli' and the balance...

Patriotic Concert. A Crowded Hause.

The hall was packed from back to front, and it is expected that over £20 will lie realised from the concert and ball. .The chair was occupied by Mr John King, and h? fulfilled his duties very well. The enter tainment opened and closed with the National Anthem. The first to face the audience was the Quambatook State School chil dren, who rendered the chorus, "Our native land," in good style. A song by Miss Roberts was well rendered and much ad mired. "The Union Jack of Old England," as well as "Rule Bri tannia" at the close of the pro gramme, were both nicely sung by Mr Raff, but it would have been more effective if he had a flag to emphasize the items. The audience joined in the choruses. "The soldier's farewell" was well sung by the Harmonic Min strels, the vcices having a ...
