TERRIBLE OCCURRENCE AT MADRAS. OVER 400 PERSONS BURNT TO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 4 February 1887

TERRIBLE OCCURRENJXCE AT MADRA S. OVER 400 PERsoxs BUR.r TO DE-TH. The Bombay papers received by R.M.S. Parramatta contain the fol" lowing particulars of a shocking disas ter at Iadras. Telegrams dated Madras, December 31st., reported: The most awful catastrophe that has ever been known here occurred this evening. A fire broke. out sitnul taneously at each side of a large circle of temporary buildings, erected in what is called the band-stand of the People's Park, where the annual fair is being held. We remember nothing like it in India,'and to find any sort of paral lel we have to go back more than twenty years to the burning of the Church of tile Campania in Santiago, in Chili, where upwards of 2,000 per sons perished in the flames. The peo ples Fair in Madras is always held about the New Year, and is the most popular festival of the whole 12 months. This year it was celebrated on an un usually large scale, and was to have lasted six days in honour of the jubilee of the Queen-Empr...

STRAY THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 4 February 1887

STRAY THOUGIITS. BY PERRY GREE\. ALL of us would like to know what people think we are like, both intellec tually and physicTlly, and so I make this my 'excuse for placing on paper a few of my thoughts about Traralgon. SSpectators see most of the game" is an old saying and a true one, but when they cease to be spectators and become 'plavers their vision becomes limited, soi wish to write down my thoughts about tthings in general, before I become so used to them as not to notice anything particular about the things that attract me now. It needs not my feeble plaudit to be raised on thesu'bject of the growth of Trarailgon. This has been ably set forth in your paper ana moreover every man in the town 'knows it and seeks to impress it on you; besides, I long ago came to the conclusion that every man can blow his own trumpet better than any other man can, and Traralgon people are quite able 'to show forth the particular merits of Trarnlgon. That Traralgon-has grown -immensely is a fact t...

`ihI J1araI.g on t Cr "'MODERATE. BUT PROGRoESsvlY." (Published every Tuesday k&Friday morning.) FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1s87:. Dusdo the time the Vegetable Pro ducts Commission has been sitting some valuable evidence has been given by experts, tending to show that Victoria is eminently suited for the cultivation of many plants of a high economic value, and which are not indigenous to this country. Gippsland above all other territories within the Victorian boundaries has been the most highly praised. It appears from the testimony of Mr G. W. Ro?xsso., C.E., engineer to the shire of Berwick, who has experimented largely that tea, cork, quinine and other useful plants may all, be grown with success in Gippsland. The witness exhibited a sample of the tea grown by him and also some of the green leaves of the tea. In the higher. parts of Gippsland and at.Cape Otway the plant in his opinion could be grown as well as in China. The difficulty lay in low lying land, where the land was su...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE NEW MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the Traralgon Record. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 4 February 1887

CORRESPOXNDENCE. TIHE NEW 3IECIIAlICS' INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the lraragou Re Bord. Sir.-As I understand that the competitive designs for the above new building are to be considered by the committee of the Institute on Monday next, I would with your permis sion throw out a hint or two which may as sist the committee to choose that design which, together with prettiness, comdines the greatest public advantages. T'he first thi: g I would consider is the mainor public hall. This should becapable of seating comfortably at least three huu d.ed adults. But in addition to the sitting accommo . ation there should be more than passitng observation taken of the acoustic principles of the hall and the stage and fit tings. If we have a decent hall here, then we may expect that we shall often have de cent companies p:rforu ing here instead of so many mounte: ank troupes as at present visit us. As regards the ventilation, and fire escape doo s, I will say nothing, as I am inclined to think t...

The Traralgon Record "MODERATE BUT PROGRESSIVE." (Published every Tuesday & Friday morning.) TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1887. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 8 February 1887

"I0ODERATE. BUT PROGRESSI)VE.'' (Published eccryTaesday &Pri;la mhrming.) TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1887. Tns question has been frequently put during the past few weeks, " Is Tra ralgon to have a race meeting in March " and so far no one has been able to satisfy the enquirers. It ap pears that the Traralgon Race Club has, by some means or other, been al lowed to drift into a semi moribund condition which is far from creditable, and a matter ton be regretted, seeing that a few days' sport is a genuine ne cessity to vary the humdrum round of business cares. During the last few weeks a number of efforts have been made to get a meeting of the club members in order to make the arrange ments for the usual race meeting; and on each occasion when our representa tive has put in an appearance to report the business he has found that the meeting has lapsed. The only persons he has noticed have been the few on wh-om, as in Iac.at societies, the burden of carrying on the wor: is allowed to fa...

A TRAMP FROM MELBOURNE TO SALE AND STRATFORD. (aR AN OLD PRES~SA?l.)-Continued. After leaving Traralgon I started for Rosedale passing some really good agricultural country, and camped for the night opposite the state school, a neat little wooden edifice on the road side; during the night the weather changed and I had to pack up my traps and install myself in the porch of the aforesaid school. At half past nine next morning I arrived at Rosedale as quaint and extraordinary looking a village as ever I saw, the buildings were heavy and sombre looking, and neither Doric, oieic, or Corinthian. I remained in this extraordinary quiet town five hour', during which time I did not observe four human beings. If I were desirous of a fit of melancholia commend me to Rosedale, I was really that full when I turned my back upon the place where " silence reigned supreme." Five "iiles further on I came across a good samaritan residing near the Latrobe river, and canmped about six miles from Rosedale...
