A FLOUR MILL DESTROYED BY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 22 February 1884
A FLOUR MI[-L DESTROYED ;BY FIRE. The Yarramia flour-mill, nine miles from Port Albert, owned and wbrked by Mr A. Bland, in connexion with his steam saw-mill, was burnt to the ground during the high wind that prevailed on Wednesday evening 13th inst. The building and machinery were erected about seven-years ago, by MDr Bland, who met with a similar misfortune two or three years prior to that date. A quantity of this season's wheat was in the mill, £20 worth of which had been purchased by the proprietor only a day or two previously. The prooerty is only insured for about half its value. There being no other flour or saw mill in the district, the loss is a serious one, occurring as it has just at the opening of a busy season. The residence of Mr William Bland, which is 50 yards from the mill, had a very marrow escape from destruction. -" Argus."

GIPPSLAND COAL. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 22 February 1884
GIPPSLAND COAL. -c The following letter appeared in the "Weekly Times":--Sir,-I see by the Melbourne papers that there is an in terest felt now for the development of the coal measures of Victoria. About seven years ago our Government got one of the best men from Newcastle to reportfon our coal measures, namely, Mir M'Kenzie, and what surprises me is that his recommendation was never followed out, namely, prospecting, the great valley of the Latrobe River. At the end of his report he says :-"And if there be any payable coal found, it will be found about the valley of the Iatrebe." I never thought much of Mr iPI'Kenzie's report until about five years ago, then I discovered a bed of lignite about 30 ft. thick. I drove a tunnel into it 40 ft., and finding it much the same I gave it up; but I found the deeper I got down in it got aore into coal. But the winter fol lowing titere wR a great flood here, and the next summer there was coal found strewn about the sandbanks of the river imbedd...

Published every Friday morning. FR1DAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1884, Russia has got to Merv, and means to stay there until circumstances favor the next onward move-an easy one-to Herat. But a few years ago a Russian occupation of Merv was deri ded as an impracticable idea. Herat-for Merv, Which commands it, is practically a. synonyme for that stronghold, formerly the central point of Korassan--nay, of the whole eastern Mahommedan world,-is really the pilot of the whole question of Anglo Russian rivalry in central Asia. The owner of Herat may wait with patience, and the precious jewel of the possession of India, soon or late, may fall into his lap. If we look back at the history of Russian Conquests in Asia, we shall see how this method of expectation has worked for the last three centuries. So near to Herat, Russia will not wait long' until she proceeds to: the fine and fertile valley on the Heri-bud. Andall circumstances combine to give value to that historically formidable stronghold -a str...

TRARALGON HOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 29 February 1884
TRRA:ALfON HOPS. - i~w thlt ithe season for harvelt;ng this product is at hand, and picking about to commence, it is generally asked how are the hops to succeed in Traralgon? About a year ago Mr Moore obtained a few acres of land on the banks of Traralgon Creek, which after he had cleared and prepared, he planted with hop plants and cuttings. The plants cover about an acre and a ha f, while the slips occupy two and a ha'f acres, both the plants and cuttings have proved prolific beyond Mr Mloore's expectations, who having everything to prepare could not bestow the attention requisite. No irrigation was attemp ted simply because it was not possible in the time, situated as he was, to do it, still the abundant moisture of this season has been very fortunate for hops, and it was not therefore so much missed The hops had they been watered would have yielded more abundantly, but even as they are they compare most favorably with other districts, and it is Mr Mloore's intention to enter mor...
