Beautiful Photographs. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
Beautiful Photographs. Richards arid Co.'s (of Ballarat) display is slightly later thar^ usual at this period of the year. Various causes have occasioned the delay, the principal one being the large number of orders dealt with by the firm from officers and men leaving for the front disturbing the usual routine of business. However, the show of new portraits opened to view recently amply compensates, for the delay, but no finer exhibit has previously been made at tin's studio. One of the most. striking feature will be found in the very fine exhibition of portraits of our gallant boys who have answered the cal! of the Empire. Messrs Richards and Co. introduced a special, new size for these, so that the photos could be enclosed in an ordinary pocket wallet. An extensive display of these portraits is shown in the vestibule. A notable example of modern portraiture is shown in the two large studies forming the centre of the window display. A young girl, draped, is the subjcct. There lined...

The Coming Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
The Coming Harvest. The Federal Attorney-General states that lie lias been notified by the Minister fo.r the Navy that the transport con trolled by the department would be able to lift 2r>0,000 tons of wheat in con nection with the coming harvest. It was, Mr Hughes said, impossible to estimate the total amount of wheat to be marketed. It mi^ht run as low as l.OoO.OOO, or as lii^h as 000,001), tons, but at a reasonably conservative esti mate it should be set down at not L'ss than 1,500.000 tons. To transport this quantity to the markets of the world was the problem which had to be faced, but Mr .Jensen's a.-surance that hi., department would be able to deal with . 250,000 tons was an important step towards its solution. ]
A PERSONAL NOTE. From Dr. A W. Rinder. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
A PERSONAL NOTE. From Dr. A- W. Rinder. Dear Patrons.— I With the first issue of the "Northern District Standard " I move a little for ward in the direction I started for three years ago. When I purchased the " Lance " from the executors of the late Miss Western, in August, If'2- 1 conceived the idea of eventually issuing an up-to-date newspaper twice a week, which would circulate along the line as far as settlement exto:i 'oil. I;v tirst associating myself with Mr Page, "f »»,„ O,.r..nlmtook "Times." anil then Pr A. W Kindi'r. buying out Mr Nolan's interest in the I Boort " Standard," 1 laid tin* founda tion of my plan. Up. fortunately, i owing to my attack of illness fifteen months' ago, 1 had to refrain from | taking an active personal interest in the publications, and decided to. concen trate my interests for the time being | on the Korong Vale "Lance" and J Boort " Standard," and wait for a more ! fitting opportunity. A suitable time now seems to have arrived, hence the appeara...
A REPLY TO TOWNSMAN. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
A REPLY TO TOWNSMAN. To tlic Editor. I Sir,—In your corresponding columns of last issue 1 read a very strong and unfair comment on farmers by "Towns man " 1 would first ask "Townsman" has he a son or sons gone or going to the front? Has he taken the trouble to ascertain what percentage of far mers and their sons have gone to ihe front or now in training? One who has just returned from one of the training camps says " the greater part of the men are from the country. " Personally, I can name more farmers' sons win) have joined the forces, some killed, some wounded, and the rest in training from round the district, than volunteers from Hoort or the adjacent townships. The farmers are not shirkers. Ii is not only in the lighting line workers | are needed ; there is work for all. 1 can scarcely be classed with those who only criticise my neighbor and say what he "must do. Two of my sons were in the 15oer war, and my youngest hoy lias gone into camp, while other friends have the same tal...
RED CROSS WORK. An Eloquent Tribute. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
I RED CROSS WORK. An Eloquent Tribute. The Presbyteriau Church, Boort. was well filled on Sunday night when Rev E. Kldridge preached from Acts ix„ 36—" Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpre tation Is called Dorcas ; this woman was full of good works and alms deeds which she did." The preacher said that deeds of charity and mercy have undying fame. They who from a pure heart perform them, outlive the power of death, and survive the disinte grating forces of the tomb. In biblical language "their works do follow." They being dead yet speak. As the widows and poor folk bent over the precious form of Dorcas, they remembered her good works and charity, and her death no doubt struck them not only as a tragedy, but as a great mystery. The useful are often taken" and the useless left. The great Gardener plucks the blooming rose and leaves the withered one upon the stalk. Does the law of preference operate here? What graces the bowers of earth may well, pe...
Supply of Cornsacks. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
Supply of Cornsacks. In connection with the proposed ini- j portation of corr.sacks from India, the j Minister of Public Works states that sufficient cornsaeks to meet the re- . quiroments of even a normal harvest hail not been ordered. The reason was j that importers were reluctant to pay the high prices now he inn demanded n India, fearing that their might be a surplus of the sacks left on then hands. They were endeavoring to persuade farmers to give them specified orders for fulfilment, but the farmers owing to there still remaining an ele ment of uncertainty as to the harvest results and the extent of their require ments, were disinclined to do so. Mallee farmers particularly were not in a ! financial positicn to take any risks at this time, and a deadlock seemed to have arisen- With a view to evolving meana to meet the difficulty, he had arranged to meet the advisory com mittee in conference.

We have enjoyed the continuous support of some of 6ur customers lor many years and, while it is our regular customers to whom we owe our success, we would be ungrateful not to express our thanks for the general support accorded us, and ask its con tinuance.

Our work has an attractiveness about it that is hard to describe; it is print ing that will ^attract business, and in the day of the "survival of the fittest" a good design neatly printed —be i...

SUNDAY READING. "standard's" Attitude. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 5 August 1915
&lt; SUNDAY READING. I I Conducted by Rev. E. Eldridge, Boort. 1 Standard's " Attitude. Unlike many country papera the "Northern District Standard" is to be a many-sided journal. In all com munities there aro to be found many people who take a deep interest in the ethics of religion. Indeed, it i3 the leaven of Christianity which is respon sible for keeping the moral fabric together. Once remove the mighty influence of the churches and our civic, social and commercial life would dege nerate into indiscribable chaos. A publication appeared some years ago entitled "When it was Dark," in which the author attempted to describe the I condition of the world if it could be proved that there were no resurrec tion- The arguments used might just as truly describe the state of society generally, if the great controlling dy namic of Christianity were removed. Wedo not wholly appreciate,a greatboon until it is taken from us. Whenever the religion of the Narazine has ob truded itself, and...
