RED CROSS SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 19 September 1914

RED CROSS SOCIETY. The Koroit branch of the Red Cross Society is making an appeal for new or sccond-hand clothing or boots, to be forwarded to Belgium for the use of those who have suffered through the war. It is probable that in a good many homes there are garments of various kinds, for which there is little further use. The most ac ceptable would be discarded winter cloth ing, as the winter in Belgium is just about commencing, while here it is over. Clothing for men, women or children will be gladly received, and all sent in should be clean and in good repair. The terrible condition in which the brave Belgians tind themselves must enlist the sympathy of all, as their courrge has roused our admiration. Parcejs of cloth ing may be left at the Vicarage, Koroit, or at the meeting of the Red Cross So ciety in the Mechanics' Hall on Thursday afternoon next.

PORT FAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 26 September 1914

PORT FAIRY. On Thursday last a big mob of wandering .heep devoured all the grasa in and around the lanes of Kosebrook. It may be a bit early to allow residents of the neighbour hood to turn their cattle on the roads (as suggested by Cr. Digby at the last council meeting), but certainly, in consideration of the prevailing drought, it would be better to let the. ratepayers have the use of the grass on the roads' than to conservo it till nomad stockowners, who contribute nothing to this municipality, bring along their stock to eat it. There is quite an epidemic of influema in and around Port Fairy, nearly every house hold containing one paiient or more. It is many years since the complaint was so pre valent or severe, many of the cases being serious enough to require medical atlention. Victims are advised that the best way to shake oft the disease is to stay in bed a lew days and not take the risk of contracting pnemonia. The erection of the fence-a fine one of Bit, galvanised iron-rou...

Prices Fixed. WHEAT, FLOUR, AND BREAD. In the Legislative Assembly on Wed nesday night the Premier read a report frrni die Prices of Fqod Board. It stated that the Board, regarding tl|c Foodstuffs and Commodities Act as in a great measure involving a national stocktaking, had aimed at exercising and carrying out its functions with as great despatch as possible, while taking care to make its actions as little oppressive as possible.
