IH4 3Hi "Tl It appeal s but a few years ago that Wentworth was practically the only Racing Club giving anything in the way of sub stantial stakes on the River. Renmark and Morgan, where the prize money oflered was very«=mal 1, only catered for l jcal horses. But with the prosperous seasons and a greatly increased population all along the River Val ey Clubs—and good ones—have sprung up, until the Murray Racing Season is recognized as of some importance. At Mildura, Merbein, Went worth, Renmark Loxton, Morgan and Swan Reach each yearat Race time many hundreds of pe^le meet, not only to watch the sport, bnt for the purporse of renewing acquaintances with old time frierds and new time settlers. No doubt, as the prosperity of the river country increases, so will the stakes now given by the many Clubs increase. And wi...

WAIKERIE. July 7. [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 11 July 1913
WAIKERIE. July 7. j Frosts, and still more frosts I Just tcr keep abreast of the times we had four more severe frosts last week. Many of the young orange trees here are looking very sick, bnt the settler as a rule is 8 brave man and not to be downcast by trifles. Consequently, one meets a smile end a laugh, and an expression of the hope that the trees will not be lulled. Brave optimism is surely one of the most valuable assets of the man who sets out to turn this mallee country into a fertile land, whether he be .an agriculturist or a horticulturist. ■ Rain would do a large amount of good i fust now, and the early- crops which are j np will soon show the need of moisture. At the same ti'fe this part is much better! off than many, judging by accounts ap I pearing in the daily press. Most of our farmers have plenty of feed for their own stock, and in some instances horses' from less fortunate parts are being paddocked here. A new wire cable has been lately stretched across the river f...

NEW NNAME AND PRICE. PRIZE MONEY ALLOTTED [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer and Australian River Record — 11 July 1913
NEW NAME AND PRICE. PRIZE MONEY ALLOTTED The Pioneer issues this week under its new title. The old name has not been chang- ed so much as was originally contemplated. From numer- ous subscribers protests were received against any alteration at all, and a desire that at least the "Pioneer " should be &nbsp; retained has been very gener- ally expressed. Although we &nbsp; had intended a complete change, it is quite in keeping with our own sentiment in favour of the name that the paper will still be known as &nbsp; the Pioneer. The name as it now stands is fairly comprehensive. THE &nbsp; PIONEER alone as the main title might have been prefer- able, but there is another paper of that name published in this State. Of Records and Recorders, here and in the neighbouring States, there are many. And the Murray already has its Advocate. Though the name competi- tion was announced to close so long ago as June 1, sug- gestions for the new name have been arriving...
