DISTRICT NEWS. (From Oub Own Correspondents). Coalville. Although this part of Gtlppsland is not con sidered a wheat-growing district, a very fine crop of wheat is at present to be seen growing on Mr J. Lewington's farm. As showing what the land in this locality is capable of producing, it may be mentioned that Mr J. L. David—from a quarter-of-an acre of Yorkshire Hero peas—has sold £15 worth of green peas, and has still a fair crop to harvest. A number of the local landowners have leased their land for grazing purposes to farmers from the northern areas.

Hill End. A concert in aid of the Patriotic Fund was given here last week bj' the pupils of the local State School, when the sum of £5 14s was taken at the door.

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 December 1914

Toot Your Own "Horn. A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most. roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people knoAV he's round by his insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and tsvatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The 'peacock spreads his tail, and squeaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.

How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 December 1914

[How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to Jay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you will effectually damn your town and district.

ANOTHER OBSERVANT CLERIC. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 December 1914

ANOTHER OBSERVANT CLERIC. It is rather curious that whenever there is a picturesque exhibition afoot, some clergyman or other is sure to get a free ticket for the perform ance. Here, now, is the Rev. Richard Free, Vicar of St. Clement's, Fulham, writing to the papers to say that the other night a girl in her 'teens, sit ting opposite to him in a tramcar, was wearing a blouse so inadequate that her bare flesh was visible nearly to the waist, "and but yesterday, in a high-class suburb, I found myself walking behind a fashionably-dressed lady whose every movement uncover ed her left leg to the knee." Our sym pathy is with the rev. gentleman; next time we strongly advise liim to walk in front and let somebody else have a look.

GARDEN FETE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 December 1914

GARDEN FETE. Rarely are postponed events attended with success, but on this occasion success eventuated. Our residents —as well as visitors from other parts of the shire—were thankful for the splen did downpour of rain which occurred on the day on which it was originally in tended to hold the fete, and, on the postponed date, patronised the afternoon and evening " sessions" in such a manner as to fully compensate all who were associated with the undertaking. In the unavoidable absence of the Shire President (Cr Branigan), the fete was opened by the local Presbyterian minister (the Rev. Colin Robertson), and from the opening to the close of the pro ceedings not a moment seemed to "hang fire"—due to the carrying out of a voluminous programme in the most satisfactory manner. At night, the grounds were orunanuy illuminated, and the interior of the manse grounds can be better imagined than described. During the evening, a concert programme (arranged by Mr B. B.

The chauf feur appealed to Policeman Edward Grady, who was detailed to prevent disorder during the celebrations. Two men" with the supposed bride groom settled the taxi bill and the three entered the hall, where they began to quarrel. Grady put thein out and sat down to rest. A man crept up behind him and hit liim over the head with a chair. Then the as sailant ran out on to a fire escape, up the iron stairway and rushed through the crowd at the other wed ding. There were shrieks of "Fire" and an alarm was turned in. When reinforcements arrived from the Maxwell-street station and the smoke of battle had cleared away, Ig natz Spillok, 111S South Jefferson-st., who said he was a bridegroom, a nd Andrew Rocozzi, his "best man, were taken...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived ! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before.

MOE STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 December 1914

MOE STATE SCHOOL. I The school concert held at the Moe Mechanics' Institute on Friday even ing last was a pronounced success. There was a good attendance, and— judging by the applause—each and every item contained in the programme was keenly appreciated. The items contributed by the pupils of the school were of a varied description, many being entirely new to a Moe audience. The manner in which the pupils ac quitted themselves reflected not a small amount of credit upon Miss Baker (assisted by Miss Purvis), who had charge of them. Unfortunately, Miss Baker became ill a few days before the entertainment, as a result of which the children did not get the " topping-off" it was hoped to give them, but notwithstanding this fact they did remarkably well. Mr W. A. Purvis (correspondent to the School Committee) presided. The following programme was gone through :—Pianoforte duet, Misses M. and Myra Purvis; recitation, " What Jerry Caught," Geo.
