ORBOS[?]. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 February 1914

ORBOS1. The maize crops at Orbost are exceptionally fine this season. A good many of the crops are 13 feet high, and are showing big cobs, j It will be pretty nigh a record crop, as it is regarded as almost safe how. There is also a big cjrop ot French beans for seed. Last season some of the growers refu sed 27s 6d per bushel and they are rather sorry they did not take the bird 111 the hand. The railway works are only ?about a mile from the township, and during the hot spell the nav vies left their work, and rushed to the pubs for refreshments. They literally made beasts of themselves and numbers lay about' the place all night, dead beat. Some few things are mentioned about the railway building that the layman cannot understand.

A gentleman relates that fc>,T a cer tain day he saw two men removing the earth from a moderate sized tree. The fol...

TRARALGON SOUTH PICNIC. The annual district picnic took place on Thursday last, under very trying circumstances. For the past fortnight the bush tires have been raging all over the district, and the farmers have had a very trying time in keeping the lires back. On the day ot the picnic several farmers could not leave their homes as the fires were all in their paddocks, the smoke being so thick that one could hardly see where the (ires were. However, all things considered, the picnic pas sed oft" ver ywell. Lunch was ser ved about noon by the ladies ot the district, who deserve jgreat cre dit as they had a long and very trying day. After all had partaken o' the good things provided, a move was made to the running track.

TRARALGON SOUTH The Traralgon South reside.it^ describe the fires in that district as the worst they 'have experienced for years. The losses consist of grass and fencing, though un fortunately, Mr. Richies' home further up the creek, near Mr. M'Gartland's, was demolished, all efforts to save the building being futile. The fire made a clean sweep of practical'y the whole of the property. Mr. Riches, we understand, held an insurance po licy !of ;£120, so that his losses will be partly covered. At the back of Toner's a couple of culverts have been burned, and the road way is ^blocked with fallen timber.
