IMPROVEMENTS. To the Editor of the "Traralgon Record." [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

IMPROVEMENTS. To the Editor of the "Traralgon Record." Sir,-As a simple onlooker, permit me to draw general attention to some of the mismanagement which goes on in your rising little township, although under the very eyes of the engineer, and two or three of the shire council lors. In the first place, can a dirtier town be found in Gippsland than Traralgon in wet weather? No proper scheme of drainage ever seems to have been started, or levels tatten in laying down the water channels, some of which run nowhere, some turn the water into stagnant pools, and one or two do their duty by carrying off some of the water. Towards the western end of the township a network of stag nant drains, ana one or two depres sions in the ground, creating filthy mudholes, form a pleasing monument to the capacity of your rulers. Then look at the footpaths ! Greasy, slip per}, and slimy when wet; rough with hills and hollows, and notably with great pebbles when dry; always filthy with the droppings of wand...

Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.) TRARALGON SOUTH. To the Editor of the "Traralgon Record." [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

Correspondence. -0 - (We do not hold ourselves respon s ble for opinions expressed by corres pondents.) o TRAEALGON SOUTH. To the Editor of the "Traralgcu Becord." Sir-Your correspondent was scarce ly asleep, as "Social" would wish to imply,' re' Traralgon South Ball held on the 18th January, for as it so hap pened I had managed to keep one eye open quietly watching passing events; but, by way of explanation, I may inform your readers, that the organizers of the Traralgon South Picnic took no part whatevwr in the night's entertain ment, the two sources of amusement having no connecting link. " Social" appears to have thoroughly enjoyed himself, and your humble servant is very pleased to find he did so. As I had feared that the irtrodnuction of going round with the hat being made the o, der of the evening, had probably militated against the promised plea sures. I am truly happy, and hasten to apologise for neglecting to furnish a voluminous report. I am, etc.-Yous Ows.

SCENE IN NEW SOUTH WALES PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

SCENE IN NEW SOUTH WALES PARLIAMENT. -0 Such an outrageous and disgraceful scene as that witnessed in the precincts of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly on Friday last has, happily for the good repute of Parliamentary institutions in these colonies, very rarely to be recorded. That two inem bers of Parliament should fight out their differences is more in keeping with the traditions of Stephen's Green than, those of colonial legislators, Mr Wisdom, the member for Morpeth. and Mr David Buchanan, who is noto rious for his abusive and truculent disposition, have long been in bitter antagonism, and in a debate on Friday they attacked one another with much animus. Mr Wisdom characterising his opponent as "Honorable," but not learned," Mr Buchanan threatened to "give' it him in reply." They met shortly afterwards in the ante-room of the House, when Mr Wisdom went up to Mr Buchanan and said, "'You are a - liar." "You are a - scoun drel." Mr Buchanan retorted, "You'r another," and was...

PROVISION FOR A RAINY DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

PROVISION FOR A RAINY DAY. John Fluckingen and W. Bourhofer, of Buenos Ayres, may (says an En glirh paper) fairly claim to be the authors of the most surprising engin eering proposal ever made. They offer to cover the city in which they reside with a huge metal umbrella, the 'handle' of which would be 570 feet in diameter and 1500 feet in height. The ribs would be of "cast. iron, 31 inches in circumference and 1 feet apart." The "lining," or, as we should say, the covering, would be of wrought iron 11 inches in thickness. Somehow, in a manner not explained by the inventors, this wrought iron would fold up, and on fine days, the great umbrella would be like a gigantic monument. When the rain came Buenos Ayres would simply hoist its umbrella, a mile and a half wide, and defy the elements. Lest the swate' pouring off the umbrella should inun date thle city, the " proponents," as they call themselves, suggest the making of a circular canal communica ting with the River Plate, and bridge...

HANGED IN JEST. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

IlANGED IN JEST, Crime has been unusually rrevalent in Fiance during the summer, and there have been frequent instances of capital punishment. Reading th-e newspaper accounts of these execu tions led to an extraordinary accident to the young Vicomte Louis de Lor gerie, heir apparent to. one of the oldest titles and largest estates of Brittany. He had been perusing these descriptions, and took it into his head to frighten his little sister by an im promptu illustration of the horrors of hanging. The Vicomte slipped the noose about his own neck, passed the end of the rope over the door in his father's library, and with child-like mimicry went through all the premb minary formslities of hanging himself. Unfortunately his foot slipped on the polished floor, the rope got jammed in the hinges of the door, and the weigh~ ofhis falling body so tightened the noose that death ensued from strangu lation before anybody could come to his assistnce.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. --o Working and Packing Butter.-At every stage of butter-making, from milking to packing, there is a liabil ty of its being affected in one way or an other, so that it sill not sell ae a prime article; and the finer the quality the more these "little things' count. It spoils butter to smooth it with the ladle or butter worker; the grmin is destro yed, and the mass has a pasty, stiky appearance. On a low grade of bhtter the effect may be less appreciable. Use only the best salt, in proportiondf about an ounce to the pound, as a rule, though come customers will prefer it in smallerproportion Some prefer towork in about three-quarters of an ounce when the butter is first taken from the churn, and the other quarter after a day or so. Pack the butter neatly in pails holding from six to twelve pounds, as these are the most popular, or clean, sweet tubs, in larger quantities. Print butter sells the best in some markets, as well-to-do-people have an eye for beauty as wel...

The Traralgon Record Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1884. HOP GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 8 February 1884

Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1884, HOP GROWING. TnE soil and climate of Gippsland have been found favorable for the cul tivationof the Hop Plant, a cultivation which, in England, has always been attended with..'serious drawbacks. There is, in the first place, in England, a peculiarity about the nature of hops, which are the most fluctuating, of all crops, as well as the most various as to quality. This being so, there is a further peculiarity in England about the nature of the duty in hops which is not levied-like an income tax-'ad valorem,' whereby -:the hop grower would have to pay according to propor tionate receipts. In an abundant year, the article becomes a drug, and there fore the duty to be paid on the weight of that drug becomes overwhelming. The cultivator must sell at any sacrifice in order to pay the duty, unless he has a very ample reserve in cash on which to fall back and hold on. The result hasbeen the gambling for which the hop market in Englan...
