ADELAIDE TO MELBOURNE In the reliability trial run from Adelaide to Melbourne 15 competitors concluded their long journey at the Haymarket shortly after noon on January 2, 10 liad the satisfaction of knowing that they had completed the trip without losing a point, while two others lost only one point each on the riin between the two cities.

BUSH FIRES COUNTRY DEVASTATE©. MEN FIGHT FLAMES. \ Miles of smouldering and devastated country, • overlooked by the pillar of fire into which Mount Macedon had been transformed, testified • to the damage done by bush fires in the Riddell dis trict on Friday, January 9. ^Fire that started on January 8 near Sunbury, and came northward toward Riddell was brought under control on the Red Rock property of Mr Alan Currie. It was well guarded next da.y, but at about 5 p.m., when all was considered safe, it broke out afresh on the side of the Red Rock itself. A strong north wind was blowing, and the fire quickly traversed the property of Mr Wilfred Johnstone, then extended to Mr Major's, and Mr Fell's, right on to Sir Rupert Clarke's property, •known as "Kismet." A great number of firefighters from Riddell, Sunbury, g.nd Gisborne did excellent work, but much damage was caused.

Stocks and Shares [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

o Gold stocks are . to the fore. Victorian alluvials hold pride of place, tliose o£ Ararat, Rutherglen. and Timor monopolising most of the call-room sales. New Laugi Logan is the centre of a cluster of stocks. Water-pressure on the bores is now far below the weight at which it was considered safe to rise into wash. The rise is now in progress. It will have to go up 5'7£t. How long the work will take depends on the class of country encountered, and on what may have to be done. The market estimate is three weeks to a rn'onth. While the rise is going up there is bound to be much market skirmishing. Although shares are higher, top prices have not held. The I daily turnover is large. Smaller-priced Langi Logan stocks—Langi ; Logan Central, North, South, Upper Langi, and Great Langi—have moved in sympathy i with New Langi Logan. The present ten dency is to ease. Most of the mines are faced with a long term of development work before reaching the productive stage. I Since the New Langi boo...
