The Traralgon Record Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 1884. THE BLUE RIBBON CONVERSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 29 February 1884

Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 1884, THE BLUE RIBBON CONVER SIONS. Certainly one of the most successful movements in Melbourne of late is that which is formulated as "The Blue Ribbon." It is the more remarkable because it is not the outcome of any Socialogical Manifesto-Social Science being on the shelf-and because tem perance is a question in which so ,ery little remains to be said. The subject on the platform is exhausted, though not.unhappily in the streets. It is absurd to legislate on it, since legisla tion it is agreed on all hands, does not cure. That is one thing we know, and knowing it what else do we know about a cure for drunkenness ; all that we know can be said in two words. First we know that a man can cure himself, if he will exert the will. That is a truth, the beginning and end of which are in very close conjunction. It is a mathematical point, to which ten thou sand Socialogists can neither give length, breadth, nor thickness. In the next plac...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 29 February 1884

NEWS AND NOTES. -o On Saturday morning last, an employee of Mr Whittakers, of Fernhill (a few miles distant from the township) named Thomas Shanahan, met with a serious accident. He had been out after a mob of horses on an animal bareback, which, when passing over a piece of land sl ghtly depressed, slipped and rolled over on top ofhim. He was immediately taken care of by Mr Whittakers, who sent him on to the Sale Hospital, by the mid-day train. His injuries, which were found to consist of a broken leg and afew bruises were at once attended to by Dr Reid, who reports very satisfactorily upon the case. The leg was broken just above the anicie. Mr Shanahani s a middle-aged man, and brother to a well-known resident of the town. Although (says the" Telegraph) Mr Dealin is the youngest member of the Government, circumstances have made his responsibilities to the State excep tionally onerous. At present he is discharging the offices of Attorney General, Solicitor-General, Minister of Publ...

A HARVESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 29 February 1884

A HIARVESTER. -0 Smith's combination hartester was submitted to a field trial on Tuesday, at Mr James Rigby's farm, Dooen. The crop selected was a medium one, but a good proportion of it had been knocked down by the recent storms, and consequently a great many heads were missed. The comb, which was 8ftinlength, was too close, and the re sult was that the machine got choked frequently-a defect that was increased by the loose soil, the stalks being dragged up by theroots. Rollerswere used, but they were not the right length, and were consequently inef fective in preventing the comb from coming. These drawbacks would, of course, have existed with an ordinary stripper. The winnowing and cleaning was well done, except that there was more than the usual waste, a defect that will be remedied by covering in the winnower. The many farmers who were present expressed satisfaction at the trial, but they were unanimously of opinion that many minor alterations would have to be carried out. The ma...

IH) 1111ELLL. From a correspondent Tuesday, Feb' nary 20. There is a good st ry gul g the roun-s of the place here, that is wor, hy of repetition, respecting a me dical gentleman who happened to be paying a visit to this part of the district some time ago.-It appears that on meeting one of his countr.rmen (a Ca nadian by birth), conversation turned to land ad a large landed proprietors, the worthy doctor remarked to his friend," Oh ! hadn't my ancestor a large dairy fatrm in America ? You must know." " Well, replied the per son to whom the question was ad dressed, while a mischierous smile o'tr.pead his face, " 1 don't exactly remember tile size of your respected dad's farm, but I guess it must have been pretty extensive one, for mnay father was a miller by trade; and I know he had two large water-wheels that were regularly worked by the buttermilk that flowed from ytur an cestor's dairy."

Correspondence. LOADING SHEEP TRUCKS. To the Editor of the "Traralgon Record." [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record and Morwell, Mirboo,Toongabbie, Heyfield,Tyers and Callignee Advertiser — 29 February 1884

Correspondence. -- LOADINO SHEEP TRUIKS. To the Editor of the "Traralgon Record." Sir--It has occurred to me that in a great sheep country like Australia, an immense amount of valuable time is lost by the tedious process of trucking sheep at the various Iailway station. The trucks are pushed one by one to the small gates connected with the sheep yards, and by means of shouts and yells of men and barking of dogs the compartment is filled and the door shut. When the truck has been removed another is pushed into it, place, and the same process has to be resumed until the whole flock has been trucked. Now I think I can show how a whole train, I say fifteen trucks, can be either loaded or unloaded as quickly as a single truck, and all the trouble and exertion saved to the men, without the necessity of knocking the sheep about as at present. What 1 propose is to do away with the present system of opening the trucks at the sides, and instead, have the entrance gates at the end of the truck...

Now there is great: petition among storekeepers toýI who can sell the cheapest, and p striving among the consuming z to get things as cheap as possible: : the outcome of all this cleverni that the manufacturer makes a .: modity that both suits the tarh!s sight, and also the pocket of theri mer.

Ion a rcccnt issue cf the "Garden" an article is devoted to this tuber, f om which we extract the following :-" Tile native place of this tuberous rooted solanum, named after its discoverer, S. Ohroud, is the little uninhabited island of Gorltti, situated at the mouth of the river La Plata. The soil is tandy. Strangely enough, the most diligent search failed to discover more than one root of this solanum ; but, luckily, the tubers were brought safely to Blest, and delivered into the care of Mr Blanchard, garde ner at the Seamen's Hospital of that town. This is wfhst Mr Blanchard has to say on the matiter in the " Revue lHorticole" :-'From the time it came into my hands I have cultivated, or rather left, this plant in the tame place, and for the simple reason that it was impossible to destroy it.
