QUAINT TENURES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914

lQUAINT TENURES. The kings and princes of England seem .to, have delighted to amuse them selves :by the devising of tenures for t~heir personal profit, pleasure, and amusement. Some in their nature (writes Paul Monckton in t)he "Con temporary Review") are such as to be unprintanllc in the twentieth century Press; these quickly came to be com muted to a money .payment. Others, again, are positively amazing in the variety and nature of the customs by wihich they .were to be held. For instance, the Lordship of Bures in Essex, was held by the sergeantry of scalding the' King's hogs; Carleton, in Nottingham, by 'the service of one catapult in the year for all services; two farms at Carlcoats, Yorkshire, by the service of finding, one a right hand glove, and the other a left hand glove, the whole of the Manor of Caldecoote was held by Humphrey de Bohm by virtue of being Lord High Constable of England-a post now abolished on ac count of the degree of power ahd splen dour attaching to tlhe ...

Port Fairy Convent. 4500 CONTRIBUTED. -o Dr Higgins, R.C. Bishop of Bal larat, came to Port Fairy, on Sat urday, with the object of install ing the order of the Good Samari tan nuns in the local schools. The Bishop celebrated mass at 8.30 on Sunday morning, and afterward was present at the ceremony at 11 o'clock. On the conclusion of each mass, His Lordship addressed the large congregations, defining their duties and responsibilities towards the Sisterhood about to be estab lished in Port Fairy.

Local & General News. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914

Local & General News. WHAT IS UNIMPROVED VALUE ?-A land valuer of considerable experience in valuing for Federal and State land taxes Swrites on the question of how to ascer tain unimproved value. He says : -My own definition of unimproved value is " the improved value, less what it would cost to-day to put the land into its pre sent state." The cost would involve the extra cost of labor, difficulty of getting labor, and bad labor at that, time lost, interest involved, define the difference between the property as it is to-day, " a going concern," and as it would be to day if absolutely bare of improvements. We cannot go back to what the land was worth years ago, when unimproved, but what it will bring to-day if unimproved. The surroundings to-day add to to-day's unimproved value - roads, telephones, telegraphs, railways, ard population and also the knowledge we now have, for instance, that if we are dealing with forest lands we now know that by ex 'pending, say, 5s to 10s a...
