Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 February 1914
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 nanme 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 infer miation, but let criticism alone.
