JEERALANG. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 February 1914
JEERALANG. Terrible bush fires have been. &nbsp; raging in the Jeeralang district for &nbsp; the past fortnight. The country &nbsp; is completely charred, and most of the settlers are left without a blade of grass for their stock. The &nbsp; worst of all, water is running out. Every energy that was available, was brought out to fight the flames. Only those who have been in the midst of the ferocious element to save property and life, know what it is to fight the flames. However, the awful grandness becomes &nbsp; apparent at night, when, in the &nbsp; darkness, the burning giant trees &nbsp; are now telling the terrible tale of destruction, which they wrought during the day just past, and which they intend to do for the day to come, by sending forth their imps of terror - sparks - into the the neighboring property. All &nbsp; Jeeralang North is burnt but, and Jumbuk and Jeeralang West have also suffered heavily. Among t...
GLENGARRY. AN HEROIC DEED. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 February 1914
GLENGARRY, AN HEROIC DEED. &nbsp; &nbsp; Our Glengarry correspondent writes:- &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; travelling in a westerly direction through the scrubby back &nbsp; paddocks ot Mr. Ewart. 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. Christensen'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....
CUNNINGHAME. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 February 1914
CUtfNlNGHAME. I (From our own Correspondent) I . There is still a very large num ber of visitors here, and during the past few days they have" been' shaking hands with themselves jand each other because they are es caping the hot stretch ;of swelter ing weather in the inland area. It is quite warm enough in the town ship, but on the beach the tem perature is 10 to ",15 degrees lower. In the surf the 'thermometer does not register more than 50. Natur ally, the visitors flock to " the "other side,'' and seek pheltcr from the sun in the shadow of the pier. Though it is a lazy life, the time spent in recuperating one's health cannot by any stretch of imagination be said to be wasted. This matter of health outweighs afi other considerations. The in dividual who only sees the prac tical side of it will sometimes try to form some idea ot the energy lying dormant. Here are visitors from far and near and of very var ied occupations-probably enough to make up a-fc-elf supporting com munity. F...

The Unpeopled: ISiorth. The "Argus" publishes an in terview with Major \V.
