Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
Important - Ooicerniing some parts of the dis trict news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous power of knowing what is happening in all the area of circula. tion. It is the fault of residents in the silent places.

Write the names of persons very distinctly, -Do not bother about grammar or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The tkarest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the- paper. only.. Give infor mation, but let criticism alone.

Dramatic and Musical Entertainment. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
Dramatic and Musical Enter tainment. For some time past advance notices have appeared in the" Gazette" an nouncing the appearance of Mr Marcus St. John (elocutionist), Madame Leon Caron (pianiste), and Miss Irma Caron (vocalist and violinist).. All the reviews of the artists were most laudatory, and calculated to raise public expectation to a very high pitch. On Saturday night the talented trio made their first-but happily not their last-appearance in the lecture hall, Port Fairy, and were received with an enthusiasm which. has had no equal here for many years. We understand that the compatiy has enjoyed quite a triumphal progress down the line, and it is not surprising, for no artists who have ever entertained in Port Fairy, have had more qualifications to inspire and hold public favor than those under present notice. Madame Leon Caron (a name to conjure with-amongst musicians) opened the first part of the programme with a brilliantly-executed Polish Dance, and the second part with...
YAMBUK. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
YAMBUK. (From a Correspondent) .. The sad news on Wednesday last of the death of John, the only son of Mr Jas. Mc Inerney, shire president, caused quite a shock to the residents of this district. The deceased, who was a general favor ite with all who knew him, was ap parently in his usual health on Monday night last, taking part in social games with the rest of the family and retiring to bed without complaining. On Tues day morning, however, his condition so alarmed the parents that they decided to take him to Port Fairy, where both Dr Lyons and Dr Orchard were consul ted, but medical skill was of no avail, and he passed away on Wednesday under circumstances detailed in the ' 'Gazette" last Friday. Jack, as he was known, was a great favorite among the children of St. Joseph's school, which he atten ded, and will be greatly. missed by the scholars, who held him in high esteem. At the funeral on Thursday his school mates marched in procession to the cemetery. The greatest sympathy is ...

Geelong and Its Environs. 1860—1914—P. A. MCANULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
Geelong and It. Environs. 1860-1914-P. A. McANU?TY/ Very much to my regret was I obliged for family and official reasons to seek fresh fields and pastures new, and to leave Port Fairy, with its magnificent stretches of beaches-eastern and southern - its open sea bathing facilities, and the many pleasant tours I have enjoyed " padding the hoof " on its well-kept roads. Naturally, having been-and as I claim-being still an officer of the public service, with all rights and privileges as to the office from which I have not yet been retired, equal. to that from which I was coerced into retiring, I have a grievance, and therein comes the official reason that I decidedly object to my age being legalised by Act of Parliament as 69 when, in the ordinary sense of nature, I am only 59. As to family reasons, one must provide for the future of a growing family, and even in Port Fairy " Satan finds mischief still for idle hands to do." All down the line to Geelong there was a great exodus of holi...

Country Roads Board. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 January 1914
Country Roads Board. On Friday the Main Roads Board, Mr Caldwell (engineer and chairman), Mr McCormack (en gineer) and Mr Friecke (financial expert) motored over I00 miles of the Hampden shire roads. The members of the board state that the board was created to assist the municipalities, and not to harass them. The board will not take away a single right from a munici pality, but it will naturally require that the approval of the board shall be obtained for work to be executed by a municipality on main roads taken over by the board. When it makes a road the board bears the cost of the whole of the constructian, and is in turn reimbursed by the council for half the cost of construction by pay ments extending over 314 years. Repayments are made on scale of 6 per cent. of the amount charged the council (that is half the whole cost of the construction work) and the repaymentsat 6 per cent. (in terest and sinking fund) extend over 31} years. This is to say, that if the board constructed a...
