The Fire Fiend. VISITS TRARALGON. ESTIMATED DAMAGE £2,650 Residents of T raral gon were startled by the loud ringing of the; fire bell at 2.15-on Saturday morn- ! ing, and, jumping out of bed arid, peering out of the windows or door, saw long tongues of flames shoot ing from the root of one of the | business places in Franklin street, j Some thought it was one building, some another, but very few rea-1 lised that the doomed building was j Messrs. Carter and Hunt's well-1 stocked and attractive tailoring and mercery establishment. But such was the case. Sixteen mem bers of the (fire brigade, ;under Cap tain King, were on the scene of the fine in a few 'minutes, but there -was not a shreel of hope of saving the valuable stock in the building. The 'whole place was a roaring furnace, and the flames were leap- j ing, and curling in all directions. Naturally the heat \vas intense, and the fire fighters and spectators were' glad to keep at a respectful distance. Captain King had a double b...
TRARALGON FIRE BRIGADE [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 18 August 1914
TRARALGON FIRE BRIGADE Chief-Officer Marshall made an inspection of the Traralgon Fire, Brigade and plant on July 8 last The following are some of his* comments in his report, furnished to the brigade: Fire Plugs (43): All indicated. Recent fires have emphasised . the necessity of putting down addi tional plugs. At one fire a quar ter1 of a (mile of hose was required to reach the fire; in another 1500 feet in o ne continuous length would have been required to reach the fire-a distance much too great for successful fire extinction work. The remedy is a few extra ;plugs. Both of these fires were across the creek, where the town is rapidiv progressing. A plan clearly showing the size of the mains, and the position of the fire plugs is displayed in the sta tion. Inspection: The weather was very bad, cold and wet, but not withstanding the adverse weather there was an excellent attendance at inspection, 18 out of 20 being present. Both .of the absentees, were working, one of them at Tyers...

THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 18 August 1914
THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. Some time ago a schoolmaster in a country school asked his pupils* to write an essay on cows. Here is the "effort" of a farmer^ son: The cow is a no-bull and kine-lieart ed creature. The man who looks after cows ts called a cowherd,' but he is no cow ard who looks after cows. Cowes has a' regatta every year; yet .the cow is not a nautical animal. It is not true that she steers with her udders. It is reported that the cow sat at the head of the table in the Ark (so say the ark-co w-olos is ts), because slit was the only aniniPl that could calvs. The cow "is a sood mother, and wi.'i look calf-ter h&lt;;r calf. .. Cows rareiy ride in carriages, but a fine calf has frequently been seen tie BCending from a tramcar. Cows exist by means of the oxygen in the atmosphere (I got this from a professor at Oxford). - By the cow'is the milk made. I know this because I have often seen the milluuaid by. the cow. The cow has been introduced into song. There is an old son...

On Friday night last Mrs. Macfarlane left a hand bag on the bed in "her room, while she went outside. On returning, it had disappeared.

Rogers' stable. They were partly burnt, and among .them was the missing* '£5 note, also partly burnt, but the number, name of the bank, and: value were legible,...

BOY SCOUT, ASSOCIATION - To the Editor. ^.Sir-In the present turmoil, which involves nearly the- whole world, we turn with interest to those who are -rendering assistance, however small, to our empire in her hour of need. We notice that the boy scouts are doing their share, and it was by using boys to do men's work, and thus saving the men, that the boy scout movement ori ginated. _ , Boys, trained as they are in the scout movement, can render valu able assistance in scouting, first aid, signalling, and despatch run ning in actual warfare, and I wish to appeal to the Gippsland boys who are scouts, or who have I had scout training, to render all the assistance they can.

At the same time I shall be glad to receive any small con tributions from them towards the patriotic fund, the amounts thus1 received to ...
"THE HERO." [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 21 August 1914
' "THE HERO." At the Methodist church, Tra ralgon, on Sunday evening, the" Rev. W. H. Scurr continued - his people's services, and preached on " The Hero-," There was. a good congregation, and the choir, as sisted by several musical instru ments, rendered two special num bers. The" preacher said that his remarks had special reference to Jesus, the greatest of all heroes. In describing the hero, the prea-. cher said that people recognised a hero intuitively, but could not explain why. They seemed to " sense" a hero. Carlyle defined a hero as a " great man." The meaning was great manhoo)d. Mo ney did not make a hero. Great ness of character showed itself in the life of the hero. The .heroic act of the man were in keeping with the man himself. He was not mean or self centred. The term presupposed battles fought and won on the field, in the world of literature, in business or in the pulpit. The making of heroes did not depend on situation. There were opportunities for heroic deeds in ev...

'CONFIDENCE IN OURSEL VES." Addressing the State Assembly on Tuesday, Sir Alexander Pea cock said: " It was upon confidence in ourselves that the continuation of the well-being of the Australian* people depended. The 'determina tion of the conference to stand be hind the banks of the Common wealth was the first outward sign of faith in ourselves and our finan cial institutions.
