WELSHPOOL. STATE SCHOOL CONCERT. (Communicated.) [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 24 December 1914

WELSHPOOL. STATE SCiiOOli CONCERT. (Communicated.) Mr., Mrs! and the Misses Dyall are proving themselves an acquisition to the town. I visited the Mechanics' on Friday evening and v;as delighted with an artistic concert given by the school children. Not only were the items well rendered, but their selec t'oa shows that their teachers were artists of no mean calibre. The performance was more creditable when one considers the fact that the children have not had a concert for some years. The item which im presses me most was a recitation by the grades I, II and III, the youngest pupils in the school. It was called "Way-back." I have not heard any thing so artistically said by school children of this ago. The piano was used effectively, and the result was a perfect item. I have men tioned this item first for it deserves pride of place amongst others, al though they also were very artisical ly rendered. The character song, "Geishas" and tableau was most ar tistically staged and the singi...

Sports at Tarwin Lower. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 January 1915

I Sports at Tarwin Lower. : Office-beabers : President, J. Lees. Esq. vice-president, Mrs A. M. i Black. Treasurer, YV. .Tex, Esq, | Handicappers, Messrs H. Thomas, W. Cashm, junr., W. Jes. Starters, Messrs J. JDewar and N. Atkin, Judges, Messrs V. A. L. Adams and A. M. Black. The weather by no means favored the promoters of the sports held at Tarwin Lower on Boxing Day in aid of the funds of the local branch of the Bush Nursing Association. Rain fell most of the afternoon, and ham pered the committee in carrying out the excellent programme that had been drawn up, but thja mem bers stuck to their work manfully, and succeeded in getting off most of the events. There was a good attendance of the public, a large number coming a long distance, but had the weather been more propitious the crowd would have been doubled. Two motor launches ran from Inverloch, and brought a number who were spending their holidays at this seaside resort. Tarwin Lower possesses unequalled advantages for the c...

INVERLOOH. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 January 1915

INVERLOOH, What is puzzling the residents of the town is the delay of the Mines Department in not issuing private mining leases. The Minister for Mines paid a visit to Inverloch and met those in terested, and made certain pro mises, but nothing further has been heard upon the matter. There are several enthusiasts prepared to try their luck in opening up coal fields), and bave been put to the expense of peg ging out leases and advertising applications year after year with out any notice being taken of their request. A syndicate was formed five years back and money paid into a fund for the purpose of prospecting for coal, but as the Mines Department has blocked all private enterprise by refusing to grant leases the capital is lying idle. It is time this " dog in the manger " system in vogue with the Department was ban ished for something more pro gressive. Inverloch has waited a long time for something tp give it a spur, and the desired consum mation would be realised when the Governm...

HELP THE STARVING BELGIANS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 January 1915

HELP THE STARVING BELGIANS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—May I, through the medium of your paper, appeal to the ever generous public for help for the thousands of starving and homeless men, women and child ren of Belgium. The citizens of Footscray are endeaving to send £1000 to these poor people, and for tbis purpose we have five art unions, two at 6d and three at Id. If all the citizens of this town would take one ticket, think what it would mean to the j little children. Surely the mother's heart will respond to my appeal and at a time like Christmas I feel sure no one will miss one penny for these persecuted people. Particulars of art unions are ad vertised elsewhere, and tickets may be obtained at this office by courtesy of the editor, or direct from me- All the school children in Footscray are helping by selling tickets, and if parents who would be willing for their parents to help in a similar manner would communicate with me at once, I will send tickets immediately. The atrocities we ...

I SIR,—'At the present critical moment when our national supremacy is more than ever de pendent upon our armed forces on land and sea, there is one im portant unit of our great and glorious Empire who by the very unobtrusivehess of bis services is liable to be overlooked, viz., the merchant sailor. To him we turn in peace anrl war for the very necessaries of life. By facing un flinchingly the perils that beset him day by day he has made our vast seaborne commerce the greatest in the world. For the transport to the Mother Country of the splendid Colonial offerings of men and stores in the hour of our national need we are in „ debted to Merchant Jack. Yet there are hundreds of these worthy seamen in bitter distress— old, blind, and crippled, who cannot obtain employment, and whose case is hopeless in the ex treme. Shall these be left to fight wnaided their uneven fight with penury and misfortune ?...

Port Franklin Water Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 January 1915

Port Franklin Water Carnival. The annual sports In connection •with the Port Franklin Water Carni val took place on New Year's Day, under most favorable weather con ditions. The attendance although not up to that of last year, proved satisfactory. People journeyed to the place of rendezvous in motors, vehicles and horse-back, while others preferred to reach the scene of oper ations per boat. Along the banks were to be seen flags of all descrip tions flying high over the heads of the people who were manoeuvring here and there enjoying, in conjunc tion with the sports, the many greet ings of their friends for a Happy and Prosperous New Year. So far as the sports were concerned everything | that took place passed off well, but several events, as advertised in the programme, did not come offi, the result being that people found it a difficult matter in occupying their time. The programme evidently was too extensive or enthusiasm on the part of the committee was lack ing. Mr. West, as se...
