Eganstown. MINERAL SPRINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
Eganstown, MINERAL SPRINGS. The popularity ol the local mineral springs is increasing, and it is now a favorite resort of tourists and visitois eager to indulge in the "waters." It is unfortunate that those so intimate with them should regard this national treasure with so little attention, for if it was situated in other parts of the" State it would be "boomed." The Shire of Creswick, within whose territory it is located, never even give it passing notice, let alone exercise supervision over it, for any damage might be done, and to thein it is ap parently no concern. Public spirit in the locality does not even suggest that a local trust should be created, first of all to protect them, and later on to develop them and make known to those so keen on pleasures of the kind their weird and romantic situation, besides their advantages for health restoration. The sad lament heard, when mining did such serious injury to the famous Hepburn springs, should act as a warning to those in terest...
DISTRICT NEWS. Allendale. TRUCKING YARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
DISTRICT .NEWS. (From Oar GorrMpondenii.) Allendale. TRUCKING YARDS. Sir Alexander I'eacock, M.I, A., is urging upou the Railway Commis sioners the necessity of increasing the accommodation of tlic local live stock trucking yards, as much contusion and trouble is being experienced through the limited spacc available now that the traffic has outgrown the capacity. When these yards were established in the early part of 1907, they were regarded more as an experiment to test their need, and the principle adopted was that of a combination yard to meet a limited despatch of every class of «tock. The traffic having proved the public requirements to be much more than this class of yards affords, it is now desired to establish another and separate yards at the eastern end of the station, where the approaches can be improved upon, as the original is much too congested for the trade and dangerous for pedestrians as they leave the ramp over the line. The present yards can remain for the use of ...

PIGS AS BAROMETRS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
PIGS AS BAROMETRS. Probably tho last thing that ono would oxpeot to iii(Ii'*ato changes in tho weather is a pin's tail.

When his hand is oil your shoulder in a friendlv sort o' way.
