FEDERAL POLITICS. October 19th. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 30 October 1914
FEDERAL POLITICS. October 19th. *My date almanac says' for this Monday that people who are always talking, about their .souls should- be sure that they have _souls to talk 'about, and I am inclined to apply. the- aphorism to the member for Bourke and the .faithful four who followed him id refusing help to the Belgians, because somewhere or other in the past there was a kingly speculator on the Congo; also Aus tralians wanted the money them solves. It is a little difficult to fol low, but what appeals to Australians most- is that the Belgians put up a desperate fight against fearful odds, "for the ashes of their fathers and the temples of their Gods," while the Anstoys and the Blackeys of Austra lia asaed the futile question: "What nave they done for us?" And Aus tralia with a minimum of hesitation -has voted the gallant people a paltry £100,000, probaly not-as much as changes hands at the Melbourne and - Caultield -Cup events.

CORRESPONDENCE. MISUSE OF WATER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 30 October 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. MISUSE OF WATER. :.TO THE EDITOR.- . 813,--l-etter appWeaed in your ssile of the 23rd instant in which veile?d inference was made that th lieoIengatha Bowling Club was using water in defiance of the Water Trust regulations. The position is that the club is not a ratepayer in thee same sense that the shire is not a ratepayer, but is granted permission to water the green when required during the season for a certain sum by " the written authority of the Trust" embodied in a special resolution. It is obvious that the only man ner in which water could reason ably be used is by means of a spray, and an inspection o"f the grass on the green will show that insuffioient water is being used, a~ the grass is becoming brown and dry in parts. The green keeper has been instructed to wsater by band and exercise the greatest care.--Yours, &c., JOHN LARDNER, : S President.. S R. J. KEWISH, :: - Secretary.

SIR,-Is it hot tilme that! the ratepayers took' a-proper "iterest in their water supply.; We have had meetings, .about it, talked about it, and are not- much :more forward. We are- now again talktng as a result of the notice from the Trust that we are-prac tically not to us ithe water for the purpose it is mainly used namely slushing and garden pur poses. What is: the good of the supply? We hardly use itin the colder months. In the hot'nonths, when .we. want to use it for the chief purposes forwhat it is use able, we are told we cannot do so. Why this notice at this present time?

TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 30 October 1914
TO THE EDITOR SiR,-What are we payipg water rates for.? This- question has been on almost every Leongatha resi dent's lips during thepast week, and no one seems able to give an answer.- Sincethe scheme has been in operation it- has become-mani fest to consumers that the supply is suitable only for gardens arid cleansing purpbses as well as fire extinction. For some seven or eight months in the year the gar dens do not require this water, and just when the first spell of warm weather arrives, and the ratepayers have planted their vegetables--early in October in fact--consumers?,are threatened with an action at law if they use a hose. Surely it is time something was done to remedy this nonsensical, though costly, state of affairs. The facts, I take it, are that a few hundreds of people agree to bring into being a scheme togive them water for all purposes, includ ing the irrigation of the cabbage plot in their back yards. They pro vide the necessary funds for this purpose. Control is g...
St. Leons Circus. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 30 October 1914
St. Leons Circus. This evening (Friday) and to morrow night (Saturday) St. Leon's. great circus will perform in Leongathh. The "Standard" (Yarram) states:-On Thursday night the tent, a very capacious one, was simply packed, and the audience was delighted with the acrobatic feats of Honey, Cherry and Chudge (the dummy, but whose abilities to keep on the back of good horses was ably demonstrated), the marvellous w.v in which Senorita Phil lipina drove four horses, and the manner in which 6ood old " Gus " performed the clown- business. Aerobatism is .a great feature of the performance. The chef d'ovre of the evening, however, was Senor Phillipina's agility in lighting upon a bleautiful horse, tumbling, jumping up and down, and generally revealing to a large audience what a nimble member or tne tair sex can accompusn on good horses. The high jumping by celebrated performers, es-. pecially a bay horse and creamy pony, was delightful. On Friday evening. another excellent per formance was ...
