Friday next promises to b * a red letter letter day at Kooweeiup, as at 3 p.m. on that day the show of fruit, flowers and fa?m produce, under the auspices of the Church of England, will be opened, and the event promises to be a thorough suc cess, The show will be open in the oven ing from 7.30 to 10.30 p.m., and then wc may expect the large crowd anxious to see the exhibits and learn the results of the judging. Complete arrangements have been made, and the public, we think, will not be disappointed with the exhibition. . A ball in aid of the hall funds was held in the Kooweerup hall on Easter Mon day night, but was rather poorly pat-; roniSed. On tho same night a ball in the Five Mile hall attracted a crowded attendance. It is reported that Mr.II.^ Bicketfc irfis disposed of His bakery business at Koo weerup.

ONE WIFE EQUALS TEN GOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 15 April 1914
0 V E WIFK KQU \ L3 IKS GOATS Tiie April "Review of Reviews'' (Gel) contains a. deeply interesting interview with Mr Joshua Mortimee, who holds a liigli appointment in the Education Department at Nairobi, British Bast Africa. The policy of the presant Liberal Government, he says, is to up lift the native as much as possible; and see that he has a square deal all the time. The native cheifs are upheld in their authority, the labor condi tions are made as fair as can be, and the law is administered with abaolute equity. If the farmers and traders took the government into their own hands tho lot of the natives would certainly not be so happy. Under British rule wars and tribal feuds have been suppressed. The native policp, 1800 strong, with 35 European officers are an effective body of men, as are also the native troops. They suffice to keep law aud order throughout the land. Tho result ia that the native population is multi plying rapidly. Polygamy is practised, and a man who can afib...

Yannathan. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 15 April 1914
Yannathan. Gratification is expresse! at the result of the recent fair in aid of the Guilds oE the Union church: This ed iiice had or! it a debt o£ about £80, and. cwin« to die energy of tho ladieB and jjeullemen who worked so assidu ou-Iy for the fair, and the generosity of the various donors the debt fc'ae b^en iiquidated and tho ehnreh placed in the satisfactory position of having a credit balance. The takings amounted to £110 Is 8J, which, with the sale of sto.-k, will leave a good surplus. Tho beeretary, committee and workers are to be complimented on their successful labors in aid of this £ood object. Helpful fal-s of rain from time to time have made a difference in the appearance of the country. Tho i grass is growing nicely, and should we be favoivd with a mild winter there is little fear of a shortage of grass/and a consequent suffering of stock.

YALLOCK HALL (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 15 April 1914
Y ALLOC K HALL; 1 I (To the Editor) Sir. Permit me to say a few words re the reconstruction of the Yallock Hall, I was surprised and pleased to see that the trustees and comrriittee had waked up from their deep slumber and are prepared to put up a building, suitable to accom modate the people of the district. In the first place I would like to ask : is it the trustees' and committee's intention to have the old shipwrecked and worm-eaten building reconstruc ted with the old timber, or do they intend to go in solely for a new hall ? Would it not b'e better to have allied Alternative tenders for labor and material and labor only ? 1 am sure they would find 3t more successful from a contractor's point of view, as there would be more tenders in. I can assure the trustees they will not get many tenders outside the district on the lines they propose to cfirry out the building. But what are we to expect wjiCn we have the same old commit'.ee, weak-kneed rind lacking in the rear ? Are these s...

Cricket. e LANG LA.NCt ASSOCIATION r KJCHMOND. It was a happy idea on the part jf the District Cricket Association, at ihe close of its pleasant and harmoni ous Berfas of local matches, to conclude the season with a contest with the Richmond teain during the Easter holidays. This match was begun OC the Show grounds on Easter Monday it £ p.m.i and when the visitors came on the ground (in a happy, holiday mood, apparently not in any way de pressed by their dofeat at Leongatha on Saturday) it was observed that they were a team worthy of meeting tfte beat talent the district could pro duce, being lithe, active', and in the best possible form, one of the players (Smith), having accompanied the Aus tralian eleven on their English tour. The Association team, at the same time, was a strong one, and included local champions who during the past season had distinguished themselves in various matches, two of the batsmen having made over the century against good bowling The viritors were cap tai...

Kooweerup. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 22 April 1914
Kooweerup. The amended drainage scheme of the Water Commission is being await ed with interest on the swamp. It is considered probable that the-proposal to construct a reservoir above Eunvip as a means of supplying the naval base with water, and which would also hold back the flood waters of the Bunyip and Tara&lt;*o rivers, is the cause of the delay in the presenta tion of the amended scheme. The contract for renovations and additions 10 the Kooweerup hall has been let to Mr J, C. Colvin, aud the plans are in the hands of the department for final approval. The improvements will consist of a supper room at the side of the main build ing, the lining of the hall and the furnishing of an effective acetylene lighting plant. The committee have about £SQ in credit and will raise tlie balance on a guarantee. The revenue from the hall should liquidate the expenditure within a reasonable time. Skating, which resulted in a profit of £20 last year, is to be resumed in the hail. The fol...

As Parliament has already j parsed a measure to tho effect that it is expedient to construct such a lin.e^ the construction enabling bill should be passed as a matter of course.

Insane Man at Koo weerup. A MASS MEETING OF POTATO DIGGERS. On rtlonday, 13th inst, a stranger ar rived at Kooweerupi and it was evident from his manner and speech that he was under the influence of strange hallucin ations, barking like a dog, and stating that he intended to call a mass meeting of potato-diggers in order to bring their industrial troubles under the notice of the Government. Constable Cole was advised of his presence, hut on visiting Kooweerup on Thursday he fouud that the mail had made 'cross country to Pakenham. He turned up at a farm occupied by Mr Janics, and lit a lire close to a haystack. The stack was saved from destruction only after sorno exertion.

Ever since , the assembled team was chcsen they bad been the subject of much criticism — wise and otherwise^ False prophets bad been saying that our boys would be very tired from leather hunting before the match was over, and that supporters would hang their drooping heads in disgust. Had the weather not looked so dull there would have been a record crowd This was most not iceable on Tuesday, when the sun shone forth in fitful gleams, and at 3 o'clock there was a good number of spectators, a large number of the fair sex being present, as well as mostly everyone who had fallowed the com petitions. All the members of the team chosen by the association turned up, with the exception of Garwood, and as events turned out they played even better than was expected of them.

Fruit and Flower Show AT KOOWEERUP. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 22 April 1914
Fruit and Flower Show A 1 AT KOOWEERUP. The second annual fruit, flower and producj show, under the auspices of the Church of England, wns held in the Kooweerup hall on Friday evening 3>st, and proved a gratifying success. When the inaugural show was hold in April of last year, the novelty of the event, combined with the attraction of a beautiful moonlight night, in duced a crowded attendance, and the result was so encouraging that it was decided to make the exhibition an -anuual one, Ou this occasion the at tendance was somewhat leas, which was possibly on account of tho absence of the moon, and the entries were fewer by ton in number (117 being received as again 157 last year.) However, the 'failing off iu entries was entirely due to the absence of flower exhibits, owing to the unfavorably dry weather, which prevented a number who would have been exhibitors from entering the lists. On the other hand, the exhibition .of farm and garden produce was belter than at the previous sho...
