With the exception of the drought Ssar, 1902, the price of butter on the elboume market has not been so I high at this time of the year na at present since the export trade began ' in 1889, and even for many years before that.

IN CASE OF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 11 October 1906
IN CASE OF FIRE. "In case of your clothing catching fire," says the head of a fire brigade, "the main point is to keep calm. "Don't run; it merely creates a draught that fans the flameg, and what might he a harmless but painful accident becomes fatal. "If it is your own clothing that you have set alight, and you are alone, grasp the first thing you can, wrap it round yourself, and smother the flames, If there is nothing close at hand, roll on the floor. Fire anywhere about your clothing requires as much coolness as it does quickness. "The rules that apply to yourself apply to extinguishing flames on others. They can be more quickly and safely used, however. Without danger to yourself you can throw a rug, bedspread, overcoat, or anything within your reach and extinguish the fire before it has had time to inflict more than painful burns. The heavier and thicker the cloth or rug you use the\x=req-\ better, as it is less liable to catch fire itself. Endeavor to cover the head first, and...
