PORT FAIRY TRAIN. [The following appeared in Tuesday's "Argus."] [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 14 March 1912
PORT FAIRY TRAIN. I[The following apponeared in Tuesday'e " Argus."] SIR,-Noticing that an effort is being made to get the departure of the 3 50 p.m. train from Melbourne to Port Fairy, altered and made an hour earlier, I would aslc the Port Fairy people it they forget that others use this. train and need con sideration. Why should all 'the regular prissengers, &c., wvlho use this train at the Worriboe 'end of the line be overlooked and incon venienced more than at present ? The train service is. already unjust to this district, and I fail to see the justice in Port Fairy's request. It is a starved service at this end now', and if this alteration wore brought about greater hardships would be the result, and the mothers and children would have to wait until the 5 30 p.m. to get home. There would be a two hours' ialt for the children returning from' school during the winter nights. It' was only a short time ago that a peti tion was sent in asking for the stopping of thise trai...

THE ADVANTAGES OF A KNOWLEDGE OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 14 March 1912
THE ADVANTAGES OF A KNOW. LEDGE OF HISTORY. The study of history srtould be com. mended and pursued as a sacred duty. By its aid we make the past the back ground of our life, and so mingle its dim outlines with the deepening shba dows of our own personal experience that in" our ordinary thoughts there Is no marlced place whore our per. conal recollectlons begin. Under its guidance we make the ac quaintance of the great and gentle of past ages, and enlarge the circle of ltur admiration and affection. Their 'wisdom, their faith, their nobleness mnd actions. Familiarity with the past strengthens our feeling of tto sollidr. fly of the lhulan family, Wvidens our aymlpathlee, and disposes us to labor :or the bonflt n. those that shall coma Mtler us. No peolie dcan be brave, unselflsh, ar!d prrbllccsptrlted who forget tteor history. The traditions of noblenesn In a family are the pillars of a virtu.

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. WERRIBEE PARK ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 14 March 1912
CLOSER SETTLEMENT. WERRIBEE PARK ESTATE. In the Legislative Assembly on December 7, 1911, Mr.A. R. Robert son, speaking on the above matter, said:- "I wish to say a word or two witli regard to the position of the Worribee Park estate in connec tion with irrigation. That land is not being taken up, although large areas are available. There is a good portion of the estate which has not been irrigated, but which has been .supplied with water for stock and domestic purposes. A tank has been excavated, which is filled once or twice a year, and for that there is a rate of from Is. to 2s; in the £1 on the rateable value of the property. There is a fear of this rate, but that fear is without foun dation, because riothing'will be more for the good of the estate than water. When you come to con sider that on a £2,500 holding, the late for the Water soivice only amounts to £6 5s. a year, it does not appear. to be too much. The land in the poorer, parts of the estate which I would have valued a...

HERE AND THERE. 1By JoUNNIE WA?L?rsa.l Mixed bathing is causing no end of trouble at our watering places: Hard lines considering that many people had the pleasure of their first bath since they were infants. Surely there is some spot along the Werribee River where a good bathing shed and spring board 'could'" be erected.

STARLING SHOOTING. WVERRIBEE v. ALL COMERS. WIERRIBEE WINS. On March 9th the Melbourne gun club provided £10 for an open teams' match and £20 for an open handicap. The hour fixed ifor the teames' match waq not convenient for the majority of the markamen.

T'he team lead for the. first two rounds, then " Wonga " made a miss Three rounds saw Melbourne aung Rowsley on even terms, each with 11 kills out of a possible 12, w'with Werribee third with 10 kills.
