DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN YASS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 30 January 1877
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN YASS. I On Sunday night, or rather early on Monday morning, a fire took place in Yass, when the two-storey stone building occupied by Mr. George Hill, boot and shoemake.i, was completely wrecked, nothing now remaining but the four outer walls. The building is situated in Cooma-street, nearly opposite the Royal Hotel, and at a few minutes after mid night flames were seen to issue from the front portion of the roof at the north-west end of the building. The alarm was speedily spread, and a large number of persons quickly assembled to render what assistance they could. Those first on the scene of the fire ascertained that Mr. Hill and his wife and family had escaped from tho burning building, and immediately thereafter directed their efforts to save the stock and furniture. There was no scarcity of willing hands, and 'nearly the whole of the large stock of boots and shoes in the shop and adjoining room was speedily removed to a place of safety, while a large portion...

THE JAM-FACTORIES OF GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 30 January 1877
THE JAM-FACTORIES OF GOULBURN. At tlie .present time 110 local enterprise is be ing pushed with such vigor and apparent * success as that of jam-making. Blessed as it is this season with a 'bountiful supply of fruit, Goulburn has its factories busy m the preserving and refinement of all the season able fruits; and perhaps never has this branch of industry been entered into so ener getically as it now is. The district has long enioved a celebrity for the magnificence of the fruits of its soil, both for quality and quantity ; and at the last intercolonial exhi bition this fact was borne out by one of the local growers (Mr. Grunsell) being awarded prizes in competition against the colonies, while similar success, attended one of our manufacturers of jams. Jam making may be said to be a specula . tion — an undertaking surrounded by many « obstacles; and to carry it out on a really sound footing, much time, attention, and ex pense is required to be devoted to it. And when once entered in...
