An Historical Sketch. VI. A GLIMPSE OF OLD TRARALGON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 June 1914
An Historical Sketch. VI. A GLIMPSE OF OLD TRARAL GON. (By T.A.P.) Amongst the earliest residents of Traralgon who are now with us, is MIr. H-I. J. Mapleson, and he has a good recollection of the pic ture which the township prcscn ted just 40 years ago. Mr. Maple son left Braybrook with his bro ther Joe on .an exploratory vlsit in December, 1873. With their horses and swags they made a circuit thlrou-h Rosedale, Sale, Bundclalaguah, Maffra and Heyfield, back to Roscdalc, as that was then the only point at which the river could be crossed. TraraIgon Im pressed them as being the most Jikely place of the future, for the railway was then bicmg surveyed, and selectors were flocking in, and taking up the land, which was then regarded as of exceptio.nal qual ity for general farm purposes. The bi-others returned to Bray brook, after 11 days absence, set tied up their affairs, and with a wvell-equipped two horse dray, star ted on their migration to the land of promise. Their first night's ca...
THE TRARALGON POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 June 1914
THE, TRARALGON POST OFFICE. - -o The rapidly increasing business at the local post office has lready considerably outgrown the accom modation. Since Mr. Dunn tobk 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 ilumber of connec tions will steadily increase when a new ?witch 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, bu't 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.
LICOLA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 June 1914
LICOLA. -o During the past montlh there has been favorable rains, 2.28 points being registered. Though late, owing to the mild weather and the warmth of the earth, thr ough absence of autumental rains, there is nice growth, and stock generally are looking well, sheep in- particulat. The first section of the road construction in this recently an nexed territory was laid off by Mr. Johnson, shire engineer, during the end of last month, and ten ders are invited, returnable on 10th inst. I ani afrilad the £3000 promised the shire council, on agreeing to annexmg. the territory, will not fiearly complete the road and bridge construction anticipa ted by that body. The shire coun cil should endeavor to induce the Main Roads' Board to take over that portion from Topping, to Glencairn, which even, when con structed, will be costly to maintain The mail service has been dis continued and we have a very re note chance of restoring it.

GOOD MILKING SHEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 June 1914
GOOD MILKING SHEDS. Farmers are ever looking for new ideas in farm buildings, and mn methods of working a farm. Mr. Chris. Woodward has just com pleted a new milking shed and dairy for Mr. V. Pentland, on his property near the town. The shed has ten bails mn one row, and it is open on the ceast side. It ts claimed that this arrangement is a material 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 mg is of sawn timber, supported by stout red gum posts, and cove red with corrugated tron. Tho bails are also made of sawn tim her, 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 eachl niilk ing is brought in oni a truck. The floor is covered with concrete, and is easily. drained and washed out with the hose. A number of dis tri-t dairy farmers have taken a fancy to the destin, and...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 June 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. Who amongst the ladies has not stood, first on one foot and then on another, for a wearying half-hour or moro 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 ubiqu! tous hairpin, will be a boon and bless ing to women. The invention con 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 is cut, duly fitted and seamed up, and laid away in a cupboard. Six months later the lady is in Sydney or Ade laide, or up on the station, and orders a new frock from the tailor. Her pattern is taken out'of the cupboard, tuflated or blown up like a bicycle tyre, and the dressAis fitted on the pneumatic figure. After using, the air is let out, and the deflated shape Is put away until next time. This new Idea has been tried with great success lately, not only ...

THE CALLIGNEE ROAD. -0- OBJECTORS SATISFIED. DEVIAT4ION OF FAULKNER'S HILL. PLANS ADOPTED. TENDERS FOR UPPER END TO BE INVITED. At the meeting of the Traralgon shire council on Wednesday, Mlr.

The Calhlgnee people, he said ,were satisfied with the scheme. Mr. Gilmour had sug gested that it they got a devia tion of Faulkner's hill, the Cal hlgnee South people could still use the old road to Traralgon.
