BARMAH. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 9 January 1914
BARMAH. A mo3t enjoyable day was spent on Boxing Day, Mr Evans, of Barm oh, ran his s'eamer " Edwards" np the Murray River as far as Bnnoidig-Ts, some 73 passengers on board, and the trip was a very pleasant one. Mr Evan? intended running as far as Farrggaa Gardens, bat the river being shallow made this impossible. However, when the river is deeper, we hope Mr Evans will give as just such another day as Boxing Day. The party left Barmah at 12 o'clock, arriving at Bnnnidigga at 2.80. All hands brought provisions for a real picnic, aud we had dinner among the willows and rnshes. At h o'clock we left for Barmah arriving there abont 7. Anyone wishing to spend an enjoy able day at little expence should take a trip up the river. The lakes look v>ry pretty whilst passing by them in a steamer.

TUESDAY'S GREAT STORM, [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 9 January 1914
TUESDAY'S GREAT STORM. A cyclonic storm of more than ordin- ary violence visited Numurkah and dis- trict on Tuesday, 30th. The heat of Monday and Tuesday had raised the registering line of the thermometer to 103 aod 104 degrees respectively ; the latter day being made unpleasant by reason of the dust and wind which pre- vailed. The storm was one of the worst that has occurred here and was accompanied by much thunder and lightning. The gale, while at its greatest, lasted for a space of about half-an-hour ; but during that period &nbsp; considerable damage was done, and 60 points of rain were registered. The business centre of the town did not feel the full strength of the storm to such an extent as the residents of &nbsp; ontside parts, for it was in a belt or strip of about half a-mile in width that its greatest ferocity seems to have been experienced. In and around the town the greatest damage was in the shape of iron blown from the roofs of several dwellings, while...
IN THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 9 January 1914
IN THE DISTRICT. Mooroopna had its share of the storm, and a large amount of damage was also done in various parts. A large portion of the iron roof was torn away, while a part of the balcony at the Royal Hotel was blown down. A large tree in front of the Commercial Bank was hurled to the ground, and a young man who had with horses and waggon been sheltered under its protecting branches had a &nbsp; narrow escape from serious injury, if not probable death. He had just left its vicinity, and hardly got away from its length when it collapsed. The orchardists at Ardmona, though feeling some of the wind, were fortunate in escaping the devastating influences so severely felt this side of the river, and practically no damage was done to their fruit crops. At Wunghnu, Marungi, and other places in that direction the storm was felt very severely, and mach damage was done to farmhouses, tanks, stabling, etc. The house occupied by Mr . Harry Fletcher, at Marungi, was unroofed, and a la...
LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 9 January 1914
LOCAL AND GENERAL. At 3 o'clock on Boxing Day morning a fire broke out in the residence of Mr. John Crichton, of Waaia, and the house with all its contents was burned to the ground. The house and furniture were insured for £300, but this amount will only partly cover the loss. It is with regret that we have to an- nounce the death of Mrs. Matthew Thompson, wife of Mr. Matthew Thomp- son, of Yalca. The deceased was a daugh- ter of the late Mr. Ralph Young, of Yalca, and came to the district with her parents in the seventies. A very old and respected resident of the Kotupna district passed away on Sunday, in the person of Mr. John Boal, after a long and painful illness. The tender of Mr. V. Gray, of Nathalia has been accepted for the erection of a hall on behalf of the Presbyterian Church, Numurkah. The price is £563. Numurkah Fire Brigade were repre- sented at the Cobram Sports on Boxing Day, but were unsuccessful in any of the events. The first prizes went to the Mooroopna and Shepp...
NATHALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 9 January 1914
NA.THALIA. Seasonable presents appeared to be the order of the day last week, except in the case of your unfortunate scribe whom Father Christmas appears to have for- gotten. Perhaps a reminder in your next editorial might wake him up. Amongst the favoured ones was the Rev. G. Gladstone, who still guards the morals of the Nathalia district. Some of his supporters laid violent hands on his baugy, trundled it off to Mr. Binger's, and instructed him to renovate it from stem to stern, and where necessary pro- vide a new lock, stock and barrel. The practically new turn out was brought to the Parsonage on Christmas Eve, where a little company had gathered to honor the occasion. Mr. Robert Murray, of Barmah Township, as impromptu chair- man, in a few practical remarks made the presentation. Mr. J. Black, of Yalca, said that Mr. Gladstone could be relied on to be at his post in all weathers, and consequently the people felt it a pleasure to repair the buggy. Mr. Wm. Toppins added to the con...
