I have had occasm « examine a number of ^cor s bearing on the early history 01 .Traralgon, and have noticed some retercnces to the cemetery , that Tn2L.v be ot interest. . The first ground formally set apart m Traralgon for burial purposes was a site ot ten acres L what was afterwards Traialgon Park; It is in that portion ofc at which is still occupied by A"-. J D. Campbell, and the present road through the Park, which passes Mrs; Cameron's property goes very close to where it was situated. This site was reserved in the early critics, and is . shown as a ceme tery reserve in the earliest paush plans- issued.

FOOTBALL. MORWELL COMPETITION. EXTRAORDINARY POSITION ARISES. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 5 May 1914

FOOTBALL. ? MORWELL COMPETITION; EXTRAORDINARY POSITION ARISES. V. Following on the discussion that 'took place at the:meeting of de legates to the Morwell District; Competition on Tuesday morning, we are not in the least surprised at having to record the withdra wal of. the. Yinnar and Hazelwood clubs. . Their' argument is '".that they do not think it advisable to continue the competition with live teams, Traralgon having dropped out. This is a very lame excuse. The very fact of the matter is -and they, made- no secret of it that they wish, to exclude the Mirboo.. North club, and so have adopted unscrupulous tactics in order to attain their end. We would be extremely sorry, to see I the Morwell club support them iti the matter. Better' by tar to have iio football at all than to endorse this course of ac tion. In consequence, no senior matches will be played to-morrow. . At a meeting of the Morwell Association on. Tuesday, a letter was received from the Traralgon club, Notifying tha...

MOONDARRA. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 8 May 1914

MOONDARRA. The first attempt to poison rabbi!s here with apples and strychnine has pioved a great success. Wombats, as well as rabbits, I ave been poisoned Kangaioos are also numerous and settlers complain that they are nearly as bad on grass and crops as rabbits. Paspalum is the only grass here which kept green during the dry time in Maich, and next to Millet is the best feed for cows in autuir.n. The Gould railway siding is to ha ppened in three weeks and several 'thousand posts and rails pre waiting to be sent away to various parts ot the State, some, I believe, are for the Wenibee district. There is al»o an abundance of round timber for posts, piles, etc., which will come in at tbe new station. The shortage of tracks is causing difficulty ait present on the Walhalla lii e, but ifc is unders:ood arrange ments are being made by the railway authorities to have this remedied. The Long Tunnel mine is now using nearly all. wood in place of coal and coke as formerly. This has the effec...

PERILS OF MIDDLE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 8 May 1914

PERILS OF MIDDLE AGE. By Arthur Salmon. People are apt to dwell upon tii* temptations of youth, its special riskn and dangers, with an idea that wheil this period Is passed life's greatest perils are over. Jiut youth lias its own special armor, in some sense its own safeguards. its own recuperative power. Sometimes it has' a power of going through much, without tak ing a lasting soil,, and this is a very .beautiful and wonderful quality. It I cannot safely be counted on, but It . exists and often marvellously evinces I itself. In any case, youth usually has abun dance of advisers and counsellors sometimes too many-to whom at present, we may leave if. What about tlie-dangers of middle age? Are they not equally real and pressing, and generally far less fully repognised or guarded against? What, then, are these dangers? They are real and palpable. There is ) the danger of growing old, spiritual ly-to grow old physically is another matter. There is the danger of lost enthusiasm, of surr...

--: : . ! %\n Konruiil i FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1914. The Snagging Proposition.- A copy of [the report furnished to; the Government by the departmental engineers, on the proposed snag ging of the Latrobe River, is pub lished in janother column. It pro vides foodfot reflection &nd will meet Kvith tooth iavorable and ad verse criticism. The 'estimated) ['cost ot snagging, £33,000, seems a I large sum, but the enhanced value of t!he land that would be ce fclaimed, woufd justify Ksuch a large outlay. The estimate ' is merely approximate, and the actual out lay might not reach the amount stated and it is not likely to go over it. The engineers say that the removal of the obstructions jvould not appreciably lower the level of the river. Yet they be lieve there would be more scour of the bank. If there is increased rscour ot the river banks, the ef fect would be the same on the river bed, which would be lowered.

SALE-ALBERTON RAILWAY. I At a meeting of the above on Friday last, Mr. A. G. Futcher saicl he had looked forward to the construction of the line for a great many years. Forty years ago a line from Port Albert had been surveyed, and the pegs were there now-as sound as when they were put in, and affording evidence of the dura bility of the timber grown in the dis-) trict Not only would the construct ion of the projected line be a matter of conveying produce, but it was a mat ter of connecting state3 together. Such a line would mean the connection of Tasmania and New South Wales, when the Orbost line was carried on to the Border. While its construction was, strictly speaking, within State jurisdiction, the Commonwealth Go vernment should give tlie matter con sideration, as it was one. of national concern All district residents should combine their energies in securing the early' construction of the line.
