Geelong and Its Environs. 1860—1914—P. A. McANULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914
Geelong and its Environs. 1860-1914-P. A. McANUIrY. Reminiscences of Buckley, the white man who lived so many years with aborigines, are to be found in and about Geelong. From him is derived the name of " Buckley's Falls," a pretty little fall of water just outside the Queen's park, and adjacent to the paper mills. Buck ley's Cave at Barwon Heads and a similar excavation at Point Lonsdale were his reputed domiciles while moving about with the aboriginal tribe, with whoam he was found. From any part of Geelong is visible that historic old mountain, the .You Yangs, which I have seen many a time, and oft from the top of Mount Buninyong, near Ballarat, after a walk of 12 miles. In the year 1802, Captain Flinders, with his staff, ascended the mount, and to commemorate his visit some documents were deposited under a cairn of stones, which unfortunately have not yet been unearthed. As the mount is situated only 14 miles from Geelong, and the road is good, its popularity as a mountain touri...
Cycling and Motoring Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914
Cycling and MIotoring Notes L. G. Hornsted, a well-known English racing motorist, last week established two remarkable records on Brooklands track (England) when driving a "Benz." He succeeded in negotiating 2 miles in 58 4-5 sees, which is at the rate of 122 miles in an hour. Horn sted also covered 5 miles in 2 mins 35 secs, equal to a speed of 116 miles an hour. Both these per formances rank as world's track records, but faster times have been established on the straightaway hard sand beach at Florida (U.S.A.), where R. Burman has driven 2 miles in 51 2-5 seconds and V. Hemery 5 miles in 2 mins 34 4-5 secs. But of these two sets of records, Hornsted's will easily rank first, being accomplished on a cir cular track F. White, the well known Vic torian road rider, resident ii Wes tern Australia, left Fremaritle on January 10th, at 2 p.m., with the intention of endeavoring to reduce Francis Birtles' set of overland bicycle r':cords between Freemantle and Sydlney.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Gazette," SIRa,-When the special train from Port IPairy to the Warrnambool races on Saturday airrived at Koroit, it was dis covered that there were two horse boxes less than were ordered, and all the satis-. faction that could be got from the officials was, " Who is ,going, to stay be hind. You can't.all come.", A nice state of affairs ! A special train for a race-meeting, and the railway depart ment cannot take all .the horses, because they have not enough boxes, or not as many as were ordered. The train steamed off, and left Major Eight and Roluma standing on the platform at 12 o'clock to get to the races the best way they could. At first it was decided to take both horses liomne but, an second thoughts, as both animals had winning 'chances, they were trotted to Warrnambool in time to start in the races in whiclfthey were engaged. c Qn top of all this knocking about, and a t fast-run race (with a big weight), the stewards held an inquiry into...

Port Fairy Court of Petty Sessions. Tuesday, January 20. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 22 January 1914
Port Fairy Court of Petty Sessions. Tuesday, January 20. Before Messrs Baulch and Holden, J's.P William Geldhoff, carrier, Kor oit, was charged with neglecting to have the weight of his waggon painted legibly thereon. Mr Boyd appeared for the Shire of Belfast (the prosecutor) in this and the following case. Defendant pleaded guilty. The clerk of courts (Mr Wilson) called attention to the fact that there was no fee stamp on the sum mons. Mr Boyd asked for a ruling on the point. Section 692 of the pres ent Local Government Act sets out clearly that no stamp was needed on the summons when the prosecu tor was a municipality. Mr Wil son was quite right in calling at tention to the matter, as he was, no .doubt, anxious to do his duty to the department. It was imme terial to the prosecution whether stamps were affixed or not, as the defendant (if. fined) would have to bear this expense: After conferring with the clerk, the bench said they agreed that the stamps should be affixed to the sum...

THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. Science has enabled modern conjur ors to do tricks that would fill the old school of . magicians with wonder. Wherever applicable to the stage, the modern magician" has adopted the no vel features of inrventions, and, com bining theni ith his sleightof-hand, has brought forth an entirely new style of magic.
