All Interesting Rumor. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 9 January 1914

All Intnosfciiis Humor. ll would appear from tin1 slow progress being made llinl the dilllculty in the way of securing a belter site for the "Lamiefiekl " racecourse lies in getting the de bentures taken up. Enthusiasts point out that several Aotable names are not yet in the list. In reply those who loom largest in local racing management say they have done their share, and had the responsibility ; and that it is others, who would benefit most, whose interest it is to shift the course. Rumor has it that an en terprising turf entrepreneur is in teresting himself in the Ronisey racecourse, and that if it1 can he arranged, monthly meetings will be run there and. a coursing plumpton formed. This—if cor rect—will set speculation rife as to the effect it will have upon Lancefield's racing and coursing fixtures. It may leave them very feeble things, but it is possible this end may even gain, by the attention of the city ami outside, sporting fraternity being attracted to the district. |

Discovery by Accident. About the discovery of oil in Pa pua an interesting story went tho rounds of tho Press a year or two ago. A British traveller noticed a tasto of what ho thought. was kerosene oil in his ten, and rebuked his nntivo boy for carelessness. Tho boy protested that he hod allowed no oil to get near the kettle in which the water was boiled, and, on investigating tho source from which the water was obtained, his roaster found a film of crude oil floating on the top, which gave the kerosene taste to the tea. On his return the traveller told the circum stances, and in consequence the dis trict was explored, with the result that evidences of petroleum were found. TSarly lust year a young foreigner Mr. Felix Urchin, was sent to Pa pua by a London syndicate, and he took with him a portable machine for the purpose of drilling for oil. He put down two wells, nnd in the tirst of these petroleum was found at. a depth of 223ft. A second well gave signs of petroleum at a depth co...
