KORONG VALE NEWS Korong Yalo Railway Grossing A meeting of ratepayers, to con sider the proposal made by the Railway Department in regard to the railway crossing, was held at the Mechanics' hall on Saturday. The meeting was not large in num bers but it was of a very represent ative character. Cr Kiniry, who was the convenor, was voted to the chair, while Cr Andrews and the engineer, Mr Edwardes, were also present. The chairman explained that the extra crossing would be nearly 250 yards down from the main one, or a total distance around of over a quarter of a mile. The Council would be largely guided by the views of that meeting, Messrs \V. J. Chambers, P. Fahey R. Laity W. J. Leech, R. Thompson and Cr Andrews spoke in opposition. The cost of fencing and construction, which would have to be borne by the Council, was estimated by the engineer at ,6150, while the cost of maintainance would be an added charge.

NEWS FROM THE FRONT DRIVER H. E. FISHER [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

NEWS FROM THE FRONT DRIVER H. E. FISHER writes as follows to his mother:— Wc . have shifted camp sincc we landed and came to Heliopolis on Christmas eve. We are close to the Pyramids and right on the banks of the Nile. We took a run into Cairo, by tram, the first day we landed and they arc faster than the trams in Australia, while we get in to Cairo (8 m) for a half piastre (id) The streets of Cairo are so narrow that the trams run to within about two feet of the footpath. We went through a place called the Wassar and it is the dirtiest place I have ever seen. They do mostly all their work with donkeys and mules and the load they put on a donkey seems big enough to break its back. If we were seen using them in Aus in the same way we would be had up for cruelty." We met a lot we knew in Jim M.Farlane, Percy Hos king, Jack Crapper, Tom Jackman, Lorrey Walker, Tom Rollinson and Alex Chambers. The blacks chase us with things to buy from them, the usual run of whom are a dirty lot. The k...

A Personal Note. Dear Patrons, All Accounts to. 31st December, 1015, and Ulst January, 1916, have been issued, and prompt settlement is desired. Owing to the war and the drought, \vc did not press for payment during the past twelve months, recognising the financial difficulties the far mers and producers, and business men generally had to face; but we aro now looking for a good re sponse to the accounts sent out. The cost of paper and material has greatly increased, not to speak of the increase in wages, during the past twelve months, and -the in crease will be greater during the current year. Although the amounts owing in many instances are not large to the individual, the total represents a big sum to us, and we will bo grateful if set tlements are made promptly. Yours respectfully, A. W. HINDER, Proprietor.

Harvest Festival Sorvlcos. Very successful harvest festival services were conducted on Sunday last by the Rov. E. Eldridge in the three. Presbyterian churches in the charge The service in the rooming was largely attended, and the church was beautifully decorated by the ladies of the guild and other ladies and gentlemen. Special harvest hymns were sung; und the choir rendered the anthem, "Consider the Lilies," very sweetly. A pleasing item, too, during the offertory was a solo by Sliss Marquiss, "The Gates of Dawn," which was rendered in fine voice. Miss Odgers, the church or ganiste, presided at the organ, nnd there was n liberal offering. At Dur ham Ox the attendance was very good, and the nice little church waa tastefully decorated.

YOU. "No matter where I go, you go with me; You walk beside mo morning, noon and night, You are beside me in my little room, Your hand upon my shoulder cool and calm; You're always with me — God be praised for that!— And as I pen this worthless, wordy thing You hover over me; I hear the hurried intake of your breath, I glimpse your tender, understanding smile, I thrill beneath your fleeting, fond caress, And in a flash, you drivo my doubts away And once more give me faith in my poor self. —Robert Garland, j It's a safo bet that the man who Is run over by a motor car doesn't call tho driver a chauffeur.

London Letter. Carmelite House, London, Saturday, January 16. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

London Letter. Carmelite House, London, Saturday, January 16. "I iiave never seen London so full before," I heard one man say to a neighbor, as 1 was trying to force my way through the crowds in Coventry street on Saturday night. I did not wonder at his remark, Goveutry-st., Leicester Square, and the whole of the roadway to Piccadilly Circus were one dense mass of people. The thea tres were just coming out; folk jostled each other in the almost darkness, and the faint light from the theatre doors and the shop windows revealed a typical London crowd of 1916. There were many in khaki. There were few foreigners. Most of the ladies, hud dled up in their outer wraps, were clearly from the suburbs or from the country. There were few signs of anxiety or of strain. T-he soldiers fresh from the front were merriest of j all. Their bronzed faces, their bouy ant gaiety, their air of quiet confi dence struck every observer. Here and there could be seen the deep-set eyes and the somewhat still ma...

NORTHERN DISTRICT STANDARD with which u incorporated the Boort Standard, Korong Vale Lance, and Quam batook Herald. Interesting: reading mutter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, Match 9. THK WHEAT POOL. The reduction of the pricc for wheat sold in the Australian market from 5s i id to 4s gd per bushel has given rise to a discussion in which every citizen is deeply interested. That State interference has in creased enormously, wc all know; that it will increase still further, few of us doubt. Therefore, it is of the first importance that such in terference should be made with the nicest regard to justice. There arc two or three points which may be taken for granted in discussing the reduction in the pricc of wheat, a reduction approved first by inter state Ministers of Agriculture in Conference, later by the advisory committee of the Victorian Wheat Commission, condemned by a large number of organisations represent ing the producers. Practical men will admit that war and the...

German Prisoners in London. MORAL AND MATERIAL LUXURY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

German Prisoners hi London. MORAL AND MATERIAL LUXURY. By R. D. Do Mnr.itrny. the Well known French Writer. Thank Heavens! 1 liavo never had the opportunity of knowing tie visa the internment camps of Germany. It is more than enough for me to have heard of them. But, as a French journalist. I have been given the facil ity of visiting Islington Workhouse, where several hundred German civi lians are gathered. This collection was effected princi pally under the pressure of public opinion, justly aroused and alarmed by the spy peril. A smart-looking constable leads me towards a major with an honest, open countenance, who. instead of en trusting me to the care of a secre tary. takes himself the trouble of showing me every detail in the spa cious courts and buildings. What a pretty, luxurious thing this workhouse is! Palatial staircase, wide passages, airy dormitories with soft bods, sitting-rooms with cheerful fires, monumental kitchens, bakeries, and laundries, conservatories, work shop...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

NOTICE. The "Northern District Stan dard" is thoroughly representative of the district in all matters apper taining to its progress, and with an assured circulation greater than any individual paper reaching the Eumo community, its value as an advertising medium is undoubted. In politics it is democratic and independent, recognising ability and merit in the man as well as the party. Much effort and cash are wasted in ephemeral advertising by busi ness people generally. The "Stan dard " which goes direct to almost every home and business house in the whole of this vast district offers the one genuine medium for those who appreciate a return for the money they expend. The intellectual public are invited to compare the literary worth of the •"Standard," under the editor ship of Mr C- W. Macfarlan, during the past year, with far more pre tentious journals, and if they con clude that it is entitled either to business patronage, or literary assistance, or both, the manage ment invites the...

SELECTED SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

SELECTED SEED WHEAT. The demand for seed whe.it from Dookie College has already set in ; in fact, some <%thc orders were in at the end of last season. The Principal (Mr Pye) has received letters of appreciation from farmers for the good results obtained from seed purchased at the college, and in some instances where they have tried the seed against their own of the same variety the results have been favorable to the college seed, which is derived from a specially selected plant and accumulated. This is done every season, hence the produce of an acre or two acres of a variety is passed from the ex perimental plots to the farm every sowing season, The best returns from Currawa wheat from seed sold fo farmers ran from 10 to 10 bags per acre. Major, a variety only out a season or two, has given re sults of 12 and 15 bags per acre. Improved Steinwedel, an early mid-season variety bred at the college, has been spoken of as also giving good returns, whilst Warden, a mid-season h...

Girl Porter in Khaki. HOSPITAL FOR SOLDIERS RUN BY WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

Qirl Porter in Khaki. HOSPITAL FOR SOLDIERS RUN BY WOMEN. There is a military hospital "some where in London" which is run en tirely by women, from the porter at the gate to tho principal medical offi cer. Access to this wonderful place is beyond the scope of the most per sistent civilian. The curious visitor finds himself very much in the posi tion of the Peri at tho gate of Para dise, or the Spirit of Tomlinson "yam mering" at another portal. Outsido on tho pavement stands n special constable, chosen for his stoutness; nothing will lure him from his path of duty. Inside is the por ter's lodge, its doorway bowered in creepers, a bird singing softly in a cage overhead, and a little wicket. This is the lair of the portress — a bright-eyed young woman in a dress of khaki and neat puttees—who is very quick and business-like at her work. Whenever she has a message to take or a duty to perform she does not linger. She runs—a very Atalan tn for swiftness—with her yellow hair astream in th...

CRUCIAL TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 9 March 1916

CRUCIAL TEST. Krotn out of the furnace through which modern civilisation is being passed by the war many old ideas and institutions may be expected to emerge in a more or less revo lised form. Prominent amongst those undergoing the crucial test is political trade-unionism, upon which the trial is already becoming noticeably severe. Both here and in England unionism has been brought to the verge of disaster by the action of a section which has taken up an attitude of class an tagonism to national interest. In ordinary times this may be en dured, but with the untion struggling for existence, when unionism embarasses it too much, no matter what Government may be in power, the nation must be considered first. Otherwise the nation would go down and unionism along with it. The crisis that threatened to arise between unionism and the country in England seems to have been averted partly by the better sense of the union leaders and partly by the firmness of the Government, but the issue of e...
