Potato-Digging Record. 64 BAGS IN 8 HOURS. Trafalgar, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 2 May 1914

Potato-Digging Record. 64 BAGS IN 8 HOURS. Trafalgar, Wednesday. A potato-digging record for this dis trict, and probably for the State, was es tablished yesterday . by W. Powie, a resident of the Moe Swamp district. Powie is 22 years of age, and accepted a wager for £5 that he was unable to dig and bag 60 bags of potatoes in a day of 10 hours. Starting at 7 a.m., by dinner time Powie had finished 35 bags, or an average of one bag every 8]4 minutes. At the end of 8 liours 10 minutes, he had established a record of 64 bags, and had won his wager. The performance was put up in Mr. J. Duggan's paddock, and the variety of potatoes was Carman, averaging about 12 tons to the acre. The tops were green and heavy, which ham pered the digger a good deal. The pre vious record here was put up some years ago by T. Malady, formerly of Koroit, who filled 60 bags in 10 hours. The best performance in the Stale is believed to have been made in the Western district 74 bags in 10 hours. Powie's average...

The committee of the Plumpton Cours ing Club has decreed an immediate start to put the racecourse in readiness for coursing, and a " working bee," which is expected to be of large proportions, will attack the tussocks and stones in the en closure this afternoon. Conveyances will leave Koroit at 1.30, and workers are re quested to bring suitable tools (such as an adze or sharp spade. When the plump ton was first mooted many promised to help in this way. The main fence is al most finished, and an experienced gentle man from Colac is to be invited to visit Koroit and educate members in the work of capturing hares. It has been thought wise to depart from the original plan somewhat in regard to the home for hares, which will now form portion of a race to be used for returning the hares to the starting point, and will occupy a place inside the ring fence.

Victorias Electoral Rolls. METROPOLITAN AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 9 May 1914

Victorias Electoral Rolls. METROPOLITAN A.N'U COUNTRY. The revision of the electoral rolls for the Victorian Assembly has given some start ling results. No less than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists, an achieve ment which shows that the past Ministries were sadly parsimonious, or that electoral officials gave sorry returns for money paid them. Politicians may amuse themselves by trying to apportion the blame as accu rately, or as inaccurately, as their personal interests suggest, but the average elector, looking at the figutes, finds oilier matter for serious concern. The old roll gave the country electorates 363,129 voters, the me tropolitan constituencies 318,7SU, that is to say, the provincca were 44,343 votes to the good. The old state of things was bad ; the population, and as a consequence, the political strength of Greater iMelbourne was a menace. But the perfecting of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of u§ supposed. The metropoli ; ele...

This fact illustrates both the steady progress of the institution and the loyalty of its shareholders. The quality of the cures has given general satisfaction, and seven leading city firms of distributors sell the co-operative bacon at their many branch establishments. An expanding trade has been opened up with Western Australia, while a careful canvass of Rivcrina districts has added a large num ber of customers to the factory's list. The stage has now been reached where there need be no hesitation felt as to the ability of the factory to profitably dispose of all pigs that may be sent to it.
