An Historical Sketch. VI. A GLIMPSE OF OLD TRARALGON. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 9 June 1914

An Historical Sketch. VI. A GLIMPSE OF OLD TRARAL GON. (By T.A.P.) Amongst the earliest residents of Traralgon who arc now with us, is Mr. H. J. Mapleson, and he has a good recolicciion of the pic ture which the township presen ted Just 40 years a-o. Mr. Maple son left Braybrook with his bro . ther Joe on an exploratory visit in December, 1873. With their horses and swags they made a circuit through Roseclale, Sale, Bundalaguah, Maiira and Heyfield, back to Rosedalc, as that was then the only point at which the river could be crossed. Traralgon im pressed them as being the most .likely place oLthe future, for the railway was then being surveyed, and selectors were flocking in, and taking up the land, which was then regarded as of exceptional qual ity for general larm purposes. The brothers returned to Bray brook, after 11 days absence, set tled up their affairs, and with a well-equipped two horse dray, star ted . on their migration to the land of promise. Their first night's camp wa...

THE TRARALGON POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 9 June 1914

THE'TRARALGON POST OFFICE. "The rapidly increasing business at the local post office has already considerably outgrown the accom modation. Since Mr. Dunn took charge of the office the business has grown amazingly. The tele phone exchange was opened with about 20 subscribers, now there are 48, and the number of connec tions will steadily increase when a new Switch board is put in to carry 100 subscribers. The accommoda tion in the room is far too limited and some extension is inevitable at an ealry date. One suggestion is to extend the side and front of the building to the building line, thus making room nearly twice its present size, but the job would be costly and unsatisfactory. A better suggestion is to annex the two rooms now occupied by the clerk of courts. This' would give all the space required for some time to come. New rooms for the clerk of courts could be built on the south side, of the court house. Litt'e Peter Pumpkin blew his little nose, Wiped liiS streaming eye-lids,...

GOOD MILKING SHEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 9 June 1914

GOOD MILKING SHEDS. Farmers are ever looking for new ideas in. farm buildings, and in methods of working a farm. Mr. Chris. Woodward has just com pleted a ai ew milking shed ana' dairy for Mr. W. Peritland, on his property near the town. The shed has ten bails m one row, and it is open on the east side. It is claimed that this arrangement is a ijiaterial advantage, as the cows and attendants are protected from the westerly weather, whilst the ? morning sun tends to warm and sweeten the interior. The build ing is of sawn timber, supported by stout red gum posts, and cove red . with corrugated iron. The bails are also made of sawn tim ber, 4 ft. 6in wide, and 3ft. 6m. high, but the division boards are four inches from the floor. A feed trough runs the full length of the shed ,and the feed for each milk ing is brought in on a truck. The floor is covered-with concrete, and is easily drained ancl washed out' with the hose. A number of dis trict dairy farmers have takon a' fancy to the de...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 9 June 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. Who amongst the ladles has not stood, first on one foot and then on another, for a wearying half-hour or more whilst a new frock was being fitted. .There is a new invention that has been patented by a well-known ladies' tailor here that, like the ubiqui tous hairpin, will be a boon and bless ing to women. The invention con-1 sists of a rubber pneumatic figure, by means of which, if you have one cos tume made by this "tailor, you need not go to be fitted again for any future frock. For instance, Mrs. D's pattern js cut, duly fitted and seamed up, and laid away in a cupboard. Six months later the lady Is in Sydney or Ade- ; lalde, or up on the station, and orders a new frock from the tailor. Her pattern is taken out of the cupboard, inflated or blown- up like a bicycle tyre, and the dress>is fitted on the pneumatic figure. After using, the air iB let out, and the deflated shape is put away, until next time. ? This new { idea has been tried with great success l...
