Wandong. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 August 1892

Wandong. —:0:— [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] A YOUNG man named Towers, working at the Comet sawmills, was seriously hurt recently. By some means a log at which he was working rolled on him, breaking his collar bone and badly hurt- ing him internally. He was taken to the Melbourne hospital for treatment. I regret to have to announce the death of Mr. David Brown, a very old and respected resident. The foundations of the new buildings being erected by the Australian Seasoned Timber Company are going ahead very rapidly a large quantity of men, horses and drays being employed ; and doubt- less there will be a very material change in the look of things shortly. The Wandong District Ball is coming off on Friday September 2nd, and by all appearances and the interest taken there- in it should be a success. A Debating Club has been started here and about thirty members have al- ready joined. Two preliminary meeting have been held and the Club met on Wed- nesday for any essays or reading etc.,...

But there are those amongst us, and no small section either, who are praying that the debate might drag on until the arrival of the IMillenium. Their identity is revealed when it is rememlbored that the Government are anxious to put forward tile necessary measure for the collection of an ad ditional tax on beer.
