MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Hopetoun Courier and Mallee Pioneer — 12 March 1915

MAKE I'OUR DISTRICT KNOWN. Concerning some parts of the dis trict rnjws comes but seldom. This is hoc entirely our. fruit ; we have no miraculous power of knowing what is happening at all the places within our area of circulation. li is the fault of rwaiiients in the silent places. "Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one is doing it for your distiict, will you try on these lines? Send accounts of public and social events in yonr township and neigh borhood, such as weddings, death.*, j iccidents, concerts, matters touching district industries, etc. Write tho names of persons very list inet ly. Don't bother about grammar Di spelling ; it'd the editor's work to look after, those trifles. The barest hkcleton is enouyh. Write only on one sido of the paper. Giveinformation ; but let criticism alone. I Write your name and address on tame corner—not for publication, 'but to prove good faith.
