mportant [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
mportant 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 names of persons very distinctly. Do not bother about grammar or spelling ; it is the Editor's work-.to look after these trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give infor opation, but let criticism alone.

"The longer you talk the. longer you'll keep your client out of gaol. ",

REJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
REJECTED. In a carriage on a Scottishi railway sat a number of gentlemen off for the holiday. Conspicuous in the company were two-one an old man with a very bald head, and the other a young fel low with a great crop of red hair, whose fiery hue would. outrival the set ting sun. - When they had passed Paisley most of the travellers put down their news papers and began to yawn: and look out lazily, - awaiting the arrival of the train at their destination. Tiring of this prosaio silence, the .young man with the red l'air selected the old man as the butt of his wit. "I say, old felelw," he remarked. rudely, "Nature surely had no hair in stock when you were made?" "She had sir, she had," replied the old man; "but it was all red, and I would not have any of it."'

UNGRATEFUL TOM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
UNGRATEFUL TOM. Mr Blossom had been very ill, and by the time he was able to get downstairs again, his hair had grown to a con siderable length. . Then it was that Mrs B. volunteered to cut it for him. and Blossom, probably owing to .his weak condition,, consented to the ex periment. Mrs B. fastened the table oloth under Blossom's chin and got to business. Then Blossom repented his rashness." "Great Scott, Martha," he yelled, as Mrs B. jammed the' point of the' scis sors in his neck. "What the dickens do you think you're doing?'.' "Am I hurting you,. dear?" inur inured Mrs B. "It's .only those cor ners behind -your- ears -thla+other_.mn... Do keep still." : And then she sliced a bit off his ear. "Thundering Jumbo I" shouted B., jumping about the room like a eat on hot bricks. "Oh no, I'm only doing this for fun." And lie dashed upstairs and plunged his head in the bath. "That's the' worst of Tom," sighed Mrs B., as she took up her knitting. "He's always so ungrateful 1"

KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
KILLARNEY. (From Our Correspondent). Farmers are still busily engaged potato digging, and a large area has now been dug. Several far mers are, now pitting their potatoes, the present price (L2) causing them to do so in anticipation of a better price later on. A good fall of rain is needed to ensure the safety of the tubers from rotting. A few small plots of early onions are now being taken out, though not properly matured ; the price on offer, 1,6 per ton, having caused growers to lift them. The general crop -will not be ready for some time, and growers are of the opinion that yields will be 2 tons per acre lighter than last year. A commotion was caused on Friday in the yard at the Crossley railway station, by a horse attach ed to a' waggonette, bolting out and passing between a number of drays that were standing at the platform without interfering with a single vehicle. The owner of ,the horse (Mr Pat Bushell), after delivering his load of potatoes, left the animal 'standing in the...

Testing Dairy Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
Testing Dairy Cows. Mr H. W. Osborne, the manager of the Western District Butter Factories' Association, who visited Great Britain last year, had an opportunity of noting the improvements that were taking place in the old country as the re sult of systematic herd testing. Mr Osborne was so impressed with the valuable work that he returned an enthusiastic. advocate of the testing system. Referring to the matter recently. he said the necessity of producing a.larger quantity of milk off the same area is work that should be assisted by the govern ment. It can be done by improv ing the dairy stock and by showing farmers the loss they sustain by keeping cows that do not give profitable returns. " Any measu res," said Mr Osborne, " that will show Victorian dairymen how to increase the yield of milk and butter off the same area, an1 with out additional expense, will be accomplising splendid work for the country. - The State governments ,subsidise immigrants so as to in crease the population...
