THE EARLY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

THE EARLY DAYS. The death of Mr Alexander | ("Sandy") McMillan not only removed an exceedingly old settler from our. midst, but also marked the exit of a man who, in his younger days, was entirely unable to resist that doubt ful evil—a practical joke. This spirit of humor is, perhaps, best illustrated by the appended article, appearing as a Christmas supplement to "The Evening Mail" as far back as 1871-72. It shows the late Mr McMillan at his very best in a somewhat arduous joke, which, to the victim, must have been akin to a modified form of the dreaded Spanish Inquisition.

QUAMBATOOK. Advancement. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

QUAMBATOOK. Advancement. At the official opening of the municipal Electric Power Works at Wycheproof, in response to the toast of "Visiting Council lors," Cr. Cameron congratula ted the Shire and people of Wycheproof on the progressive step they had taken. He believed that what was beneficial to Wycheproof would be beneficial to Quambatook. His congratu lations were not only to the Wycheproof councillors but to the ratepayers who had backed them up in their electric lighting scheme. After witnessing same, he would be able to advocate electricity for his portion of the Shire of Kerang.—Cr. Hogan thanked the Council for their in vitation to be present at the Wycheproof celebration. It was 26 or 27 years since he had pre viously visited Wycheproof, and he noted with pleasure the great progress that had been made. He felt that the councillors and ratepayers had made a good move. The electric light at Ke rang had given entire satisfac tion during the past six years, and, from experience,...

Railway Works at Korong Vale. IMPROVEMENTS PROGRESSING SATISFACTORILY. NEW ISLAND PLATFORM GOING UP. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

Railway Works at Korong Vale. Improvements Progressing Satisfactorily. NEW ISLAND PLATFORM GOING UP. The new works at the Korong Vale railway station are being pushed along as rapidly as possible, and good pro gress is being made with the extensive 1 yards, which will be the most up-to-date in any country centre, with the view of affording wide facilities for.the handling of the ever-expanding traffic of the two branch lines—one running to Sea Lake through Charlton and Wycheproof, and the other to Manangatang via Boort, Quambatook and Ultima—both lines serving 200 miles of very productive country. The expenditure on the works will involve a sum of over .£40,000. so an adequate idea may be at first gained, of the vast improvements. The scheme was commenced in J.uly last, and a steady rate of progress has been maintained throughout. A con siderable area of land was acquired to extend the yards, and the length is now 00 chains with a width of 500ft. This space will include an island pl...

CHAPTER II. OVER THE PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

CHAPTER II. OVER THE PLAINS. •'It was ju3t seven o'clock, as we jumped into our saddles. On to each were strapped a blue blanket and a tin pannikin. There was some bread and cheese, and some ration tea in McMil lan's blanket, and the stranger cast suspicious glances at the preparations. " 'What,' asked he. 'are the blankets for, 11 r McMillan ?' " 'Well,' rejoined that gentleman, 'as we are likely to camp out for at least one night we may—I say we may —be hungry. Now, Billy !' continued McMillan addressing a black boy—a srockridtr—'come, put that black car case of yours on board ; it's quite time we-w»reoff- Yup, mare! Yu up !"

The Old Doctor's Yarn. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

The Old Doctor's Yarn. BY NEMO. It was Christmas Eve, a good many years ago, that a merry party gathered round the supper table at Baroona Station, on the -Murray. Baroona, as everyone knows, is situated between Station Hut and the Flats- There is still the same old house, the sloping lawn bordered by the creek, the vine yard, and the elm-walk, ai there were at the time of our story. Baroona has seen little change. The fleeces, as white and as heavy as of yore, have for years commanded the best prices in the London market, and in the weJl fjrassed home paddocks may, to this day, be seen the same herd of sleek, well-conditioned cattle. The beat sta tion or. the Murray was, and still is, Baroona. Why we wore at Baroona matters little. George—people never said Mister- Davidson was no exception to the true-born Englishman—he loved to see his friends around him ; all were welcome at Christmas, at Baroona.

CRICKET. LEAGHUR AVERAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

CRICKET. I/EAGHUR AVERAGES. On Saturday a meeting of the Leaghur cricket club was held at Mr Painter's to conclude the year's business. The president. Mr E. Painter, occupied the chair. The secretay (Mr 1$. Graham) presen ted the balance sheet which showed the club to be in a good financial position. It -was decided that the money in hand be held over to next season. Although the club had not the honor of being premiers they had played man}' enjoyable games. R. Duustan headed the batting average and obtained ■ the medai presented by the secretary. It was noticed that the batting averages were headed by three old buffers, and so it seems that the juniors have still some thing to learn, After the business had been disposed of, the president presented Mr E. Dunstan with the medal for batting average. Mr Dunstan suitably responded, urging the need for more practise between games. The usual votes of thanks brought a pleasant evening to a close.

Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

Cycling and Motor Notes. A protest has been lodged with the Dunlop Rubber" Co. by the Granville Bicycle Club, Sydney, (whose team of ten riders finished up fourth in the competition) against the Sydney North Suburbs Cycling Club's team being awarded the first prize in connection with the recently finished 100 miles Teams Relay Road Test, which was open to all Australasian cycling clubs. On the last day of the competition ten riders of the Northern Suburbs Club (Sydney) recorded the splendid time of 4 hrs. Gmins. 55 sees, for the "Century " on a course situated out near Appin, about 40 miles from Sydney. It is now alleged by the Gra .ville Club that the conditions laid down by the Dunlop Company—that no pacing or sheltering was allowed—were not duly complied with, and that several riders were paced and attended by cyclists during their respective relays. The matter is now being investigated by the promoters. Owing to an error in New Zealand in •' cabling P. O'Shea's 10 miles Relay ti...

THEVERISTS. •Of veristic opera I stato «my opinion in most uncompromising terms: who ever wishes to improve liis own or his 'fellow-men's artistic taste,. should ab solutely shun it . ' Useless to draw dis tinctions, and say that Puccini is su perior to Leoncavallo; ho may be a more wily craftsman, but his music has as little genuineness.

BEST DRESSED ROYAL LADY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 21 May 1914

BEST DRESSED ROYAL LADY. Ail enterprising Helgian journal has made inquiries as to the amount ex pended annually liy Itoval ladies on tlieir toilettes, and lias found the fol lowing facts, says the "Evening Stan dard." Queen Victoria of Spain easily takes the first place as the best dressed Roya! la<ly. She obtains all her dresses from Paris, and has to pay over t-o the groat firms of the Rue do j la Paix a siim of no less than £S0OO , a year. ' The German Empress has | all her dresses uiade in Berlin, at a cost not far hehnv £1000. An equal sum is expanded by the Czarina, who dresses in private vory simply, and only goes in .for dxpeiisivo robes on State and festival occasions, -which, |.however, are not frequent in view of The retired life of the Russian Im perial family. The same sum- repre- ' sents the cost of dresses to the wife dg M. Poincare. Queen Elena of Italy spends only about £3200 a year, j while the dress budget of Queen Eliza beth of .

HOME V. COLONIAL LAND. Mr. I'riniroso McConnell 'writes the Loudon "Dairy"Tliero is at the present time a tremendous amount of literaturo issued concerning investments in land in the colonies. . Ono point Which/stands out, howovor, is-tliat land at Home, compared with iinv eisowhere, is comparatively cheap., Ono reads of farms costing from £30 to £S0 per acre in New .Zealand, of fruit farms in Bri tish Columbia which' are worth from £20 to £30, and of even "homestead" farms, v.-liieh have only, as it were, got a bare dwelling-house and wire fence, beiug worth auything up to £5 per acre.
