THE WARRAGUL PARK. TREE PLANTING COMMENCED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
THE WARRAGUL PARK. TREE PLANTING COMMENCED. A short time ago the Warragul Shire Council obtained a number of young trees for planting in what will some day be a beautiful public park, whilst others were obtained from one of the State nurseries, and four Queesland cedars were kindly presented by Mr. ]M'Cullough. Planting opera tions were commenced on Wednesday morning under the supervision of Councillor Connor and Councillor Anderson, who enjoyed the distinction of putting the first two trees in the ground and who, in years to come, will doubtless point with pride to the sturdy monarchs whose roots they placed beneath the soil. Over sixty trees have thus far been obtained, and they are mostly of a choice and ornamental character. They have been planted in a double row on the Western border of the park, and include the following varieties: English elm; Canadian broad-leafed elm : Queensland red cedar; the sacred Indian cedar; cedar of Lebanon; silver cedar; abeis alba ; poplar alba ; ...
STREZLECKI. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
STREZLECKI. Ahlmost all the cattle which were sent to the plains to depasture during the winter -resultant on the great scarcity of grass caused by the late disastrous bush fires have been brought home again. The lambing season is about over, and the percentage, despite the poor condition of the ewes, is in many cases very good. Several fine, commodious houses have been erected by burnt-out settlers. There are still a number, however, who have not rebuilt, owing to the high prices demanded by teamsters for carting, viz., £2 per ton; formerly only half that amount was charged. The carrier for the Poowong fButter Factory has commenced collecting cream on this route. The supply at present is small, but increasing steadily.
