Kingston. SYNOD APPOINTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 March 1914

Kingston. SYNOD APPOINTMENT. Cr. J. T. Yates, of Newlyn, has been appointed representative for the parochial district of Kingston in the Anglican synod of the diocese of Ballarat, vice Mr Elston (deceased). SCARCITY OF WATER It is not often that residents of   Kingston have to cart water, but such is the case at present. Many families have only their wells to depend on, and this is practically useless for wash ing purposes. Those who are fortunate enough to have rain water in their tanks are much envied by their neighbors. There is a very fine well of soft water at the south end of the township, and it has been suggested that the shire council should acquire it and erect a windmill, so that householders could have the water laid on. If this dry weather contiuues things will be getting desperate.
