Dudley. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

Dudley. Snake's have been fairly jiumerous In this Jocality lately, and a good number have been accounted for. A resident had a startling experience a few days ago whilst cycling home wards. A snake eauie out of the grass and was in the act of crossing the read when it became entangled in the spokes of the back wheel. Need less to say, the cyclist did not argue the point ab.ont the possession of the bicycle, but took a leap for life, and landed clear of the reptile. After being despatched, it proved to be over four feet in length. "The two tunnels at the North YVoolamai colliery are going in at a .rood rate, and it is quite refreshing to hear the blasting after a long silence.
