MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. "I discovered malny years ago," says a writer in an American paper, " that wood could be made to last longer than iron, in the ground, if prepared accord ing to the following recipe: Take boiled linseed oil and stir it in pulver ized coal to the consistency of paint. Put a coat of this over the timber, anid there is not a man that will live to see it rot." " The advantages and disadviantages of cremation have been so thoroughly discussed for several years, that it is hardly to he expected that much more light will be thrown on the sulbject. Dr. Eklund, of Copenhagen, has, how ever, given a new direction to the controversy by advocating the opposite practice of embalming. He goes so far as to insist upon making the process compulsory. If sentiment be allowed to have an influence on the discussion it may as well be abandoned. Modern views on the subject tend to favor methods allowing of rapid disintegra tion, so that the decomposing body "say be got rid of as sp...

NOTES FROM THE TANGIL GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

NOTES FROM THE TANGIL GOLDFIELDS.. (Br ",.") This is an out of the way place, and one might almost call it a "No Maan's Land," for it is very, very seldom that one sees any notice of it in the news papers. Mining has been in a very depressed state for a long time, but the same thing has occurred to some of the most prosperous goldfields, and it is very probable that this place will again become a prosperous field. If this locality had been near Sandhurst or Ballarat there is not the least doubt that it would now be a flourishing field ; but as no speculators of note have aiy interest in the place, there is no notice taken of it. There was some excitement and a great deal of speen lation at the tinm of the Cement hills rush, but as it proved to be a failure, and as some individual indulged in a good deal of sharp practice with the scrip, it brought the place into bad At present there is very little doing, they are working away at the Long Tunnel, Tangil, hut the lodes, or as most ree...

HORSE PARADE. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

HORSE PARADE. --C The horse parade arranged for by the local and visiting auctioneers, took place yesterday. The day was beautifully fine, and was every way favorable for viewing the large muster of very fine horses which came from far and noer. The judges were Messrs Ilammill, Gibson, Pollock, and Dun anchi, and the judging took place in Kaye-street, near Mitchell's hotel. Prior to the judges giving their deci sion, the horses, were paraded along Franklin-street, from Mitchell's hotel to Counolly's and back again, and many of the horses came in for a large amount of admiration from the crowds of persons who watched them walk past. Some of the most noticeable were Bonnie Dundee, a thoroughbred stallion owned by ,Mr Urquhart, Drouin. This horse is hy St. Albtns, the sire of Malua, Sheet Anchor, and other well known horses, yesterday he was in the pink of condition, and was decidedly the prettiest horse in the Iprade.

EDITORIAL DIFFICULTIES IN TEXAS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

EDITORIAL DIFFICULTIES IN TEXAS. The following editorial notice pinned on the door of the "Sunken Valley Daily News" office, Texas, U.S., gives us a lively picture of the difficulties attending journalism in the Southern States:-Mr. H. Wol writes to us as follows :--" The proprietor of the "Sunken Valley Daily News" regrets to have to announce to his subscribers that the paper will not be issued to day, owing to the sudden decease of the editor, Mr. E. J. L. Coker. }Mr. Coker was sitting in his office yester day, engaged in his editorial duties, when Colonel Ralph Mi'Gee suddenly burst into his room, and addressing ,Mr Coker as 'You piebald dogwalloper,' demanded to know what lie meant by alluding to him (Colonel M?'Gee) as ' a whisky-absorbing, poison-purveying im portation from Dublin' in last Friday's issue of the "News." Without giving Mr. Coker time to reply he fired four shots at him from his six-shooter, tile last of which struck Mr. Coker in the mouth, killing him instantly....

THE CHURCHES. PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

THE CHURCHES. PatEsurrTEara CHLUTCH. In the morning the Rev. J. G. Wilson took for his sul ject of discourse the life of theapostle Steplhen, a. found in the Gth and 7th chapters of the Acts. It is supslHeed Stephen was one0 of the two with whom J.csus Journeyed to Emmats after His resurrection. We find him at the head of seven appaintted to work in the young church, and he was known as "a maun full of faith and the Holy Ghost," having the confidence and esteem of his brethren, and being sptci lly fitted for such work. There were many posltles ; some stand out mor1e clearly tlesm others in the Ipages of history, though ino doubt they all did good work for the Master. The influence of a good manns life is not lo.st though it may not be chronicled in history. We have no mention of the physical appearance of Stephen, but there seems to have been in him a calness and dignity and a firm hold on Christ, with a sharpness and power to discern the thoughts of men,which utterly confounded his...

A DIAMOND WEDDING AND OTHER WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

A DIAMOND WEDDING AND OTHER WEDDINGS. A diamond wedding is, for very obvious reasons, an event of sufficient r.rity. to call for notice-indeed we doubt if any before except the memora ble celebration of tile 75th anniver sary of the wedding day of Marshall Von Wrangel, both husband and wife, of course, being living, has occurred within reasonable memory. The vil lage Assche, however, in Belgium, has just celebrated the diamond wedding of the father and mother of the presi dent of the Belgian Chamber, with qll possible honors, including 'a religious ceremony-of what nature, and on what grounds, ecclesiastical experts may find congenial occupation in try ing to decide. There are various ver sions of the order of nomenclature of matrimonial anniversaries. The 25th is of course the silver, the 50th the golden, and the rarely reached 75th the diamond, when jewels are bestowed somewhat late in the day, except for the heirs of the nonegenarians. Tt is also, we believe, generally believed t...

THE INTRUSIONS OF A BULLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 September 1886

THE INTRUSIONS OF A BULLOCK. About midday on the 23rd ult writes a correspondent of the Sydney " Daily Telegraph," while strolling up Pitt-street, I was amused to see a splendid red, fat bullock, with a grand pair of horns, pop into one door of Way's dnlpery shop and out of the other entrance. So did some of the customers. Inside there wasageneral scralmble of customers and assistants to make way for the distinguished visi tor; there were more people behind than in front of the counters. As my bucolic friend re-entered Pitt-street, he calmly pushed aside the dummy figures to make his exit. No further damage than fright did he. I followed close behind him, wondering what lie would do. Being inquisitive, lie turned into Harris and Ackman's aue tioil rooms. In the rostrum were the kiigimt of the hammer and his clerk. The bullock did the knocking down, "in globo." Over the counter and under, upstairs, or behind bales of goods, or into tihe buggies in the room for sale, &c., fled...

".-1ODEII.TE, RUT PROGRESSIVE." (Published every Tu?iLas y Friilay morning.) TUESDAY, SEPTE.MnIEI 21, 1886. A LOOK AROUND. AT the Narracan Shire Council on Friday hlst, a resolution was passed for the invitation of tenders for the survey of seaeral lines of traunlvls, and at next meeting the probability is that tenders will be accepted, anl that preliminary surveys will be at once made. 1We conmmend the action taken by the Shire Council of Narra can, anid have no doubt that by carry ing out their intention to get a traln way- system radiating from their chief place they will soon realize that a step has been talken which will enhance the value of -their- shire more th in anly thing else they could do.
