DISTRICT NEWS. KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 10 October 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. KILLARNEY. The continued dryness of the weather is having a serious effect on crops and pasture. Barley and oat crops are suffer ing most, both crops showing a stunted and withered appearance. A fall of rain now would not benefit them much, and very small returns are expected from both barley and oats. Potato and onions are holding out well, but rain is badly needed to ensure decent returns from either crops. Grass is also going off rapidly, and the milk supply is falling off. A short season for dairying will be the result. Residents here do not remember at this period of the year such a long spell of ex tremely dry weather. The annual ball, in aid of the R.C. school fund, was held on Friday night last, in the old church building at Crossley, which has been renovated, includinga new lloor and other improvements. The Gloria light, which has been installed in the new church and other buildings, was used for the first time, and brilliantly illuminated the interior. The b...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 10 October 1914

THE WAR, The fortunes of the Allies and the Germans along tho Aisne have Taried, but the position is described in the latest message from Paris as being " generally very satisfactory." Some idea of the tremendous battle in progress in Northern Franca can be obtained from the fact that the Ger mans have 2,000,000 men in the field. The dreaded bombardment of Ant werp has begun, and tor the second time the Belgian capital has been re moved. In the hasty retreat from Russia several German troop trains were wrecked. A British submarine entered the mouth of the River Ems, on the Ger man coast, and torpedoed one of the enemy's destroyers. Canada's first contingent; lias reached Knglnnil. The Dominion is prepared to contribute 000,000 men, if they are required. The Commonwealth intends voting £100,000 towards the relief of Bel gium, and a chequo for the whole amount will be forwarded as soon as the necessary authority has been given.

SUCCESSFUL DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 17 October 1914

SUCCESSFUL DRAMATIC PER FORMANCE. The people of Koroit have come to look forward to the appearances of the A1J Star Dramatic Company with keen ex pectation, and on Saturday evening the Mechanics' Hall was crowded to the door's to witness.the comedy drama, "Escapes! from the Law." Members of the company had "promised that the piece would be better than " Crawford's Claim," with which such a gigantic success was scorecj Jast year, and though tliejr expectations tan high the confidence of fh'e audience was in no way misplaced. The regular playgoer could not fail to notice the great Improvement caused by the introduction of new scenic effects, all of which had been painted and arranged by the enthu siastic members of the company. From the rise of the curtain (on a scene In (hp garden of the Burleigh's, suburb of Ncvy York), the interest was maintained throughout, and the opinion was freely expressed that many worse companies are on tour.

Koroit Charity Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 17 October 1914

Koroit Charity Carnival. The Koroit United Friendly Sociclics' Committee on Saturday last made its annual effort 011 behalf of the Port Fairy and Warrnambool hospitals, and although not so successful as during the previous year or two, a fair sum will be raised for the institutions named. One thing that mitigated against the success of the gathering was the epidcmic of influenza that has recently visited the district, while there were also other factors that contri buted to a icsser degree. The spccial trains from Warrnambool and Port Fairy were not so well patronised as usual, and a slight loss will probably result. Al though the number taking part in the pro cession was not so great as last year, there were some very good characters, and the bands made an imposing display. Those taking part were I lie Warrnambool Citizens' band, Irish pipe band, Port Fairy band, and Warrnambool town band, and in addition to their inspiriting strains during the procession, played many pleasing se l...
