Yallock. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 8 April 1914
Yallock. This week will be quite a busy one for the Yallock folk. Owing to the removal of that popular young preacher, Mr McPhee, to Beech Forrest, his friends are going to make this week the most eventful ever known in Yallock, He is to be the guest of the Rechabites on Tuesday evening, on Wednesday of the Yallock cricket club, on Thursday of the Christian Endeav or, and on Friday he preaches his farewell sermon. This proves that a good name is more to be prized than great riches. Mrs C. Ware had a very startling experience in the lightning storm on Friday week. She went out to the wood heap to obtain aoriie wood for the fire, when a blinding flash of lightning appeared to strike her feet, and she was knocked down and had to be carried into the house, where she remained unconscious for some hours. On examining the place where she stood a Brick was found cut in two halves, The writer saw the brick, which had a clean cut in the centre and was slightly dark at the outside edges. The b...
Proposed Reservoir ABOVE BUNYIP. MAY AFFECT THE KOOWEERUP SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 8 April 1914
Proposed Ileservoir — 9 ABOVE BUNYJ.P. MAY AFFECT THE KOOWEE KU P SCHEME. Officers of the Water Commission have visited the junction of Buuyip ;md Tai-ago Bivers about a mile north of Bunyip, in search of a site for a reservoir. Their reports have not yet bean made public. At the back of Bunyip there is a watershed of from 60 to 70 square miles of country, and a suitable basin is close at hand. Mr W. S. Koast, M.L.A;, is making ar rangements for a Parliamentary party to inspect the site after the Easter holidays. If this Scheme bo carried out it may have an important bearing on the Kooweerup Swamp drainage scheme, oh which the commission proposed to ppend £55,000. A pro posal has been made for a water sup ply for the Westemport naval base at Monbulk. It is possible that the Water Commission has the idea of utilising the Bunyip and Tarago waters for this purpose, as the dis". tp.tice to convey the waters (from near j Bunyip te Westemport) would be | no greater than from Monbulk,

.AAIUM'U* MMANUFACTURERS of engines, that have been before 1. *!. the public for twenty, thirty, or even fifty years, advertise with pride that they have 20,000 engines in use—40,000 or 50,0.00 is considered some thing wonderful. The "I.H.C." Gasolene Engine has been on the market less than seven years. Their sales for the past six months have averaged about 1000 per 'week. More than 175,000 of them are in actual use— and, better yet, giving the highest satisfaction. Everyone of them is an advertisement and one that makes sales of more "LH.C.'s." What is true of these engines throughout the civil ized world is true right here in Australia. Far more of these Engines are being sold in the Commonwealth than of any other make. They are being so generally called for becausc of the satisfaction they give in actual use, not on account of anything we say of them.
