TRARALGON SOUI'IH. T'he Trar;llo:i South resi:!c.tS describe the fires in that district as the worst they 'have expcerienced for years. The losses consist of grass and fencmig, though un fortunately. M.r. Richics' home further upI the creek, near Mir. M'Gartland's, was demolished, all efforts to save thie building being futile.

At the back of Toner's a couple ot cul\verts have b'eecn burned, and the road way is blocked with tallcn timber. Many of those at the sports meeting on Thursday ~ rrived home to find their places invaded by the flames. The following are losers of grass ana fencing: Messrs. T. Powell, G. Pentland, T. A. Dowme.

JEERALANG. Terrible bush fires have been raging mn hte Jeeralang distrct for the past forttnight. The country is completely charred, and most of the settlers are left without a blade of grass for their stock. The worst of all, water is running out. Every energy that was available, was hrough but to fight the flames. Only those who have been in the midst of the ferocicous element to save property and life, know what it is to fight the flames. However, the awful grandness becomes ap parent at night, when, in the darkness, the burning giant trees are now telling the terrible tale of destruction, which they wrought during the day just past,and wlih' they intend to do tor the day to come, by sending forth their Imfs of terror-sparks-into the the neighboring property. All Jeeralang North is burnt out, and Jumbuk and Jeeralfang \Vest have also suffered heavily. Among the heavy losers iln Jeeralatigf Nortlh are Messrs.

GLENGARRY. AN HEROIC DEED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 24 February 1914
GLENGARRY. AN HEROIC DEED. Our Glengarry correspondent writes: On Sunday evening last, 15th inst., a bush fire broke out in Mr R. Gibson's property. The fire originated outside in a paddock in which Mr. Gibson recently had a good deal of scrub cut. Efforts were made to try and block the fire from catching the scrub, but without success. A fire break was then burnt between the properties of Messrs. Cook and Gibson, &nbsp; on Monday evening, the fire traveling in a westerly direction &nbsp; through the scrubby back paddocks of Mr. Ewart. &nbsp; Several neighbors tried to keep the fire back, but were unable to do so, and it then crossed into Mr. Jepson's paddock, and threatened Mr. S. Chnstensen's homestead, which is on the opposite side of a one chain road. A break was burnt to meet the approaching fire and was only completed when the main body of fire came down. The fire crossed the road, and it looked as if Mr. Christensen's house and stacks were doomed. The ...
How to Prevent Acid Stomachs and Food Fermentation. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 27 February 1914
HoK toPrevent Acid Stvmachs and Food Fermentatimn. (By a Stomach Slpeciahlist.) As a specialist who has spent many years in the study and treat ment of stomach troubles, I have been forced to the conclusion that most people who complainam of sto mach trouble possess stomachs that are abso!ute'y healthy and normal. The real trouble, tqat wuhcih causes all the pain and difir culty, is acid in the stomach, usa Wally due to, or aggravated by, food fermentation. Acids irritate the delicate lining of the stomach pt'uu sasnuo usilwuuo3.wJ poo; pue which extends the stomach abnor mally, causing that full b!oated feeling. Thus both acid and fer mentation interfere with and re tard the progress of digestion. The stomach is usual'y healthy and normal, but Irritated almost past endurance by these foreign elements; wind and acid. In a'l such cases, and they tompnrise over 90 per cent. of tll stomach dificul ties, the first and only step neces sary is to neutralise the acid, and fermentation, by ...
