KERANG AND GORDON COUNCILS. A COMPARISON. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 March 1914

KERANG AND GORDON COUNCILS. A COMPARISON. Since the present Gordon Shire parted company with the old Swan Hill Shire about 30 years ago, we have had- an undreamed of run of prosperity, while the mother shire has been slowly sliding downwards; The ratepayers are evidently now awakening in Kerang, and have commenced to compare our progress with their retrogression. Keeping to this groove, "The Kerang New Times" of January 30 gave vent to the following pointed eittision of condemnation :— In the eighties the southern por tion of the then old Swan Hill Shire was s vered and created a separate shire, which took the name of Gor don. Partly from the fact that the people in the southern parts of the old shire were not satisfied with the management of municipal matters in Kerang, and desired to manage their own affairs in their own way, and also on account of settlement taking place so rapidly during the previous decade, so that the old shire had grown too large and un wieldly, the new Shire...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 March 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Anibrosiuo.") Tho bizarro iu dress threatens to be much to the fore this season, says a Paris expert. Already we see signs of the evil iu the newest and smartest models as seen in this city. Headgear in the form of. skull caps with towering aigrettes, skirts, with . an exaggerated spht from .the feet, and bodices of day gowns cut so low as to be almost de mllete; and fur stoles twisted _ libout the form, and muffs are the sizo of pillows. At. one shop I saw a walking gown'' in whito velvet' trimmed with bands'of sublo. Is not this the last word iu extravagance? Now, I am no Puritan as regards dress, but I think that every woman should suit her enstumo to her circumstances. Bi zarro dress has charms, but it must bo given its surrounding. An outro gown or hut which looks well , when worn by a. smart woman in a motor, seems out of place on a iiniddlo-aged matron, or when worn by a young wife who keeps . no maid aud travels by omnibus. And tho tight skirt and huge...
