Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914
Important Concerning some parts of the dis trict news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous power of knowing what is happening in all the area of circula tion. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease ? If no one else is doing it for your district will YOU try on these lines ? Send ac counts of public and social events in your township or neigborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents, concerts, matters- touching the industries, etc., Write your name in some corner ; not for printing, but for good faith. " Write the hames of persons very distinctly. Do not bother about grammar or spelling ; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The larest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give infor mation, but let criticism alone.

RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
RIFLE SHOOTING. The members of the local rifle club jonrneyed to Camperdown on Monday last and competed in a friendly rifle match at the 300 and 600 yards' ranges. The day being warm, a mirage was caused, which made shooting very dif ficult, consequently there were no good scores. The Port Fairy team was beaten by 30 points, but the day's outing and the hospitality accorded them, quite made up for the disappointment at not winning. Members are requested to put in some solid practice as the club has a big con test in the near future. The Australian rifle team will leave for England in May. -o Matt Wells has joined the welter weights in the boxing arena. Smith and. Carpentier will probably meet at Liverpool. The high jump at the amateur sports on Saturday- was won by a.. Victorian, who cleared 6 ft ¼ in. Hughie Mehegan was knocked out in the eleventh round on saturday at Sydney by Taylor.

Portland Pars. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 29 January 1914
Portland Pars. (From the Guardian and Observer). The bravery of Barker and-Lass lett, who rescued young Edwards from drowning, has been brought under the notice of the -Royal Hu mane Society by the Mayor. The steamer, Waipana, took fro zen produce and wool direct to London frompn Portland this week. Miss Jessie Holmes, 25 years of age, died on Saturday from an at tack of pneumonia. Pier anglers have been greatly heartened by the capiture of some fine schnapper lately. A pike caught by a local fisherman last week was sold for 5s and to meet the demand for choice fish it was cut in half. Things don't seem to be going smoothly at the hospital. The ma tron as well as the probationer, is tendering her resignation. .A sys tem of divided control is said by a member of the visiting committee to be largely responsible for disaf fection among the staff.
