MARIAN WILLIS DRAMATIC COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 18 February 1887
RIAJIR?V WILLIS DR.AiATiC COJIPAXY. The Marian Willis' Dramatic Com pany, who have been playing with a considerable amount of success in Sale and B-iresdale and other towns, opened in Traralgon last night for a season of three nights. The company, which comprises many artistes, of acknowledged reputation were un fortunate in being unable to obtain a h-ll suitable f, r the presentation of their plays, and rather than not make make an appearance here they decided to perfonrm in the court house. This was transfornmed into a very presenta ble little theatre. Last night the piece placed upon the boards wasa dramatisa tion of Bleak House with Miss Willis in the role of Lady Dedlock, and if the fittings and appointments were not such as might be desired, this was atoned for by some very excellent act ing. The audience was a good one, and the applause was hearty and fre quent. The reputation of the -Marian Willis Company is so well known that it is needless to say more than that they sustai...

NARRACAN VALLEY CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 18 February 1887
,ARRACA_ VALLEY C6A.IP. In consequence of reports made to the Central Board of Health in regard to the neglect of sanitary matters at the arracan Valley, the assistant en gineer was sent up to report upon the place. He visited the camps at Four Mile and Eight-Mile Camps, and re commended a number of sanitary pre cmutions to be taken by the contrac t r as far as posssible. The IleanIhh Officer, Dr J. P. Montgomery, in com pany with the secretary of the local board of health has frequently visited the camps and endeavored to enforce cleanliness as far as possible. He states that while the reports have been much exaggerated, still there is much disregard of decency. The doc tor, however, points out that complete regard for sanitary requirements can hardly be looked for in such a place, and indeed he considers that some of the suggestions made are impractic able among such a body of men so far removed from the proper control of the authorities.
THE SALE TO STRATFORD LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 18 February 1887
TILE SALE TO STRATFORD LI.NE_ The inhabitants of what Sir Ch:e. Gavan Doffy felicitously styled "a new province" have, until within the last decade or so, been practically cut off from communication with the rest of Victoria, old Gippslanders to the pres ent day speaking of tile rest of Victoria generally as Port Phillip. The Mel bourne ,and Sale railway has, however, clanged that condition of tlhin-.s, and since then the construction of lines into the southern forest lands from Traraleon to Heyfield, Maffr.a end llairnsdlle, and along the coast at Port Albert, all of which, will, ere long, be accomplished facts, has 1 ruglht the residents of the far east and the metropolis into touch. When the line from Trralgon, through ITevfield, Haffra and. Stratford to iBairnsdale, was mooted, the inhabitants of Sale objected, as they considered that their town should be connected with Bairns dale, and the proposed line did not av proach thie eastern capital within 10 miles. The northern route,...
FLYNN'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 18 February 1887
[F1RO3 OURI OWS CORRESPONDENT.] The weather continues unusually dry for this time of the year. In some cases water has to be carted for a con siderable distance for domestic purpo ses; water for stock is also getting scarce on the back blocks, but those se lectors who are so fortunate as to have creek frontages have no fear on the score of water. A change in the wea ther is being very anxiously looked for. Blight and sore eyes are very prevalent just now, owing no doubt to the con tinued hot weather. I notice, too, that a kind of opthahnlmia is prevalent among the cattle, numbers of which are suffering; some are totally blind in one or both eyes. Some of our farmers have been try ing to burn their stubble and have succeeded in burning their fences pretty considerably. So far the fires have not gat beyond the frrmns on which they were lighted, but it requires a good deal of careful watching. There is considerable danger in lighting fires outside at this season of the year, us when on...

A TARE OF SUFFERJI.G. The following extracts from a letter just received by a resident in Victoria fr2om'- relatives :,ho were: engaged in the sugar --industry in the flooded districto6fYataln, Albert River, exhibit the utter, and in .many cases irretrievable, ruin which has so widely befallen the agricultural population of the southern part" of. Queensland, and the almost miraculous "which escapes many experienced, while no less than 58 persons are known to have perished : "Yatala, 1st February, 18S7.-Dear Aunt and Uncle,-Just a few lines to tell you of the terrible calamity that has visited us. The water rose on Fri day night, covering the wharf (near the mill), but we did not suspect any danger. Pa had just returned from Brisbane that evening, and we retired to rest as usual. About 3 in the morning I had occasion to rise, when T found the water in the kitchen.. I gave the ;l.arm, and we had just time to put a few clothes on when it had risen up to the front room.

ELLISDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 18 February 1887
ELLISD1I LA. Ellisdale, the property of Messrs 1M'Iver and M'Lean, is situated in a commanding position on the Upper, Flynn's Creek, and whether viewed from a farmnning or grazing- standpoint may be regarded as one of the most valuable holdings in the district. The property, which is freehold, was pur chased by its present possessors some few months since and we understand that they .have every reason to be satisfied with their acquisition. The land consists of 970 acres, all well grassed and sub-dividedintol Ipaddocks About 60 acres have been under oats, which have just been reaped; but owing to the scarcity of labor it was late before the crops could be got in, consequently the yield will not be above the average. About 20 acres have been devoted to peas, which have made the excellent return of 45 bushels to the acre. Up to the time of the present owners entering upon the property, farming operations had not been extensive, but weunderstand from Mr M'Iver, who, by the way received...

FLOODS IN ?NEW SOUTII WALES. LOSS OF LIFE. Reports from Taree state that de structive floods occurred on Sunday on the Manning River. All the low lying lands were swamped and much valuable property was destroyed, the losses in live stock being considerable. A commercial traveller, representing a Sydney ironmongery house, is missing, and several narrow escapes from drown ing are reported. A telegram from Kempsey states that the river Macleav has been visited by a flood which reacihed to within Gft. of high water mark, and inflicted seri ous injury upon the farmers and graziers on the low-lying lands.
