COUNTRYSIDE CHANGED WOOD TORN UP FOR GOLF LINKS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 March 1914

It has leis urely footpaths, far from the call of motor horns, which range woods where in an hours' walk one may meet none but a few natives about their woodland affairs. But at present a lot of it, instead of resembling more secluded England, looks like nothing so much as a Can adian lumber camp. The saunterer who happens upon it could think Xim self not two miles only from Cro'ydon High-street, but among the pioneers who are clearing the wilderness. . No less than four square miles of old woodland is being felled.

KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 30 March 1914
KILI IANEY. From Our Own Correspondent. The heavy fall of rain during.the thunder storm. of last Friday evening was very remarkable for the manner in which it was dis tributed. Only a - moderately heavy shower fell -locally, whilst a short distance away at Rosebrook, the rain fell in torrents. At Illowa, a hail storm, accompanied by a deluge of rain and gale, was ex perienced, and it was described, by the residents there as the severest on * record. A fair amount of. damage was caused by the storm to the windows of the houses facing. the elements, many of which were broken. At the Tower Hill ceme tery several glass boxes contaii. ; wreaths placed upon the graves were broken to pieces. Farmers and dairymen here would welcome a much heavier fall than was re corded, in order to put the ground in a proper state for ploughing, and to ensure a growth of grass before the winter sets in. Matters in farming and dairying are rather quiet at present, but a few have commenced ploughing operatio...
