CORRESPONDENCE. A MATTER OF PUBLIC INTEREST. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 2 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. A MATTER OF PUBLIC INTEREST. (To the Editor.) Sir,—The express from Melbourne , leaves in two divisions, viz., 4.30 p.m. and 5.6 p.m. The former train I takes passengers for Horsham and beyond, the latter passengers for stations up to Horsham. Why not make the earlier train take passengers beyond Murtoa, and- run' the 5.6 p.m. train on to Warracknabeal Instead of Dlmboola as at present? It will cost the depart ment no more. The second express frequently runs with less than a dozen passengers beyond Murtoa, while that number often get out and have to wait till the morning to continue the jour ney to Warracknabeal. The second division train returns to Melbourne ahead of the express, and its present purpose could be accomplished if it returned from Warracknabeal. The writer of this letter will have very little opportunity of taking advantage of any change, hut surely a lot of local residents would be benefited by the alteration. Therefore, let them take the matter up, a...

MELBA PICTURES. "FAIRYLAND." [Newspaper Article] — Warracknabeal Herald — 2 January 1914
MELBA PICTURES. "FAIRYLAND." Delightful weather, a superb pro- j gramme, and a large attendance, toge«1 ther with the excellent projection, were the main factors that made the opening of Fairyland a decided success last Tuesday night week. Ma«y were the improvements noticeable since last season at this popular place of entertainment, not the least being the fine spacious gallery fitted with new and up to date chairs, which was .taxed to its utmost. The pictures are seen to.much more advantage in Fairyland owing to its great length, the gallery" being 150 feet from the screen, and the picture itself is much larger owing to the greater length of throw, and another great advantage is its height, the whole of the picture being easily seen from any part. The seating is so arranged that even the cheaper seat is not nearer than 80 feet to the picture. The management have also provided a number of chairs that can be placed in any part of the grounds i at the will of patrons, and this is gre...
