In Memoriam. MANN.— In loving memory of my dear   beloved husband and our dear father,   George David Mann, who departed this life on 10th January, 1911, at   Creswick. In the bloom of his life death claimed him, In the pride of his manhood days; None knew him but to love him, None mentioned his name but in praise. No one knows how much we miss him, Friends may think the wound is healed ; But they little know the sorrow. Deep within our hearts concealed. —Inserted by his sorrowing wife and family.

Ascot WAGGON BURNT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 9 January 1914

Ascot WAGGON BURNT. Two haystacks, owned by Mrs Nolan and Mr T. Keay, of Lord Clyde, had a narrow escape of being destroyed by fire on Tuesday. It seems that Mr. Keay was carting in, and at midday took the horses out and left the empty   waggon on the road. Shortly after   smoke was seen arising from the wag- gon. One of the bags which had been   tacked on the body to catch the loose wheat was found to he on fire. This was torn up and thrown on to the   side of the road, which immediately ig- nited the grass, and the fire spread rapidly. A number of willing hands assisted Mr. Keay and employees to cope with it, and after a strenuous effort it was beaten out within a few yards of the stacks. In the meantime the fire in the waggon showed itself. The wheels were taken off, and thus saved, the body being burnt. Besides the damage to the waggon, Mr. Keay suffered through a large quantity of grass being burnt.
