TYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 13 February 1914
TYERS. -0 Miss. Collins, of Tyers, who has been training for a position as nurse in the Bairnsdale Hospital, has passed her examination. She will probably follow her profession in Melbourne after the winter. Mr. Bert. Christensen has star ted an agitation, with the laudable object of inducing the Tyers peo ple to take more interest in the Tycrs mechanics' institute, with the object of securing better ac commodation, re-painting and re novating the hall generally. A meeting will probably slh'ortly be held to discuss the project. There are a number of residents at Tyers' who, either through themselves or families, use the hall every week in the year, and it .is to be hoped that these aL least will help Mr. Christenscn to bring his project tto a successful issue. When you are not' sure if Mr. A. J. Trood, the well-known Gipps land dentist, is at home, just ring up phone 38, and make an ap pointment. Fourteen years' prac tice in Traralgen speaks for itself.
