Make Your District known. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 26 June 1914
Make Your District known. Conoerning some parts of the district news come hot seldom. This is not the fanlt of the Editor, for he has no mira culous power of knowing- what is hap pening in all the places in the area of circulation. It is the fault of the resi dents in distant 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 acconnts of public and social events in yoar township or neighbor hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, concerts, matters touching the industries, ete. 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. Write your name in some corner not for printing, but to prove good faith,

KATAMATITE. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 26 June 1914
KATAMATITE. Early on Monday morning resident9 were awakened from their slnmber by cries of women calling "Fire!" and in a very short time half of the residents were on the spot.

Prompt action on the part of Miss Rowe and Mr Brasher (who were residing on the premises) and Mr Hnghes, who resides next door, acting under the letter's instructions, got the flames under control.
