DEREEL. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 January 1914
DEREEL. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. Un Saturday last a very destruc tive fire broke oat in the ranges near Dereel. The origin of the out break is rather mysterious, but it ia supposed that owing to the escape of gases from 3 retort a combustion took place, and set fire to 7 cords of wood cloBe by. The day was very warm, and the timber burned like matchwood, and soon began to spread, sweeping everything In its path. The barning timber and un dergrowth carried the flames into the paddocks of Messrs J. Boyle, T. Cherry. W. Laidler, W. Haley, E. Jacka, A. Thornton, on to Wnrrook homestead. Here it was, after a desperate fight, got nnder control by a number of men who were at tracted to the scene, principal among whom were Messrs Arnold (4), J. Lawless, D. Williams, A. Haley, R. Leigo, I>. and R. M'Kay, H. Walker, F. and N. Thornton, GL Taylor, and J. Hill. Besides a quantity of timber and grass, many chains of fencing were reduced to ashes.

SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 January 1914
SOME SALUTATIONS. The prostration and the salaam, sa! 11 t:itions that many Orientals use, aro only more pronounced forms of tho bow. So there is a connection between the embrace, so common in civilised countries, and the greeting of a mem ber of the lvoiari tribe of liritisli Now Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed one arm abou this neck and stroked him under the j-hin. Among the Masai anil the likerewo it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by .spitting at him. Almost as strangu is the cus tom ascribed to the Tibetans of putting out the tongue by way of salutation. Rubbing noses is quite common; tlio liuruu'se iiml many tribes of I'.skiinos, Laplanders, and Malays do so. Stranger than any of thpfio customs is tlio weeping salutation that has been observed among Central South Amer ican Indians. This form of greeting occurs too in tlio Andaman Islands, New Zealand, and Polynesia. A Por tuguese explorer thus describes the cus tom as he saw it used a...
