FLYNN'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 18 May 1886
FLYNN'S CREEK. (From our own Correspondent.) A Welcome change in the weather has taken place, and some very refresh ing showers have fallen and these have been followed by warm genial weather, so much so, that the weather the last few days, has been more like Spring than Autumn: ; Altogether about 1 inch and 25 points have fallen during the past week. The rain has fallen so gently that it has all been absorbed, and.anotlpr siinilar fall would set the fa'rmers' t' :work ploughing.. So'fari little or no pogress has:lm beeti mde \vith farm work, owing to the ground being so hard. The land in this district still con tinues to maiiltain its value. During the last week or two, two or three farms have changed hands at very satisfactory prices, and some others are still in the market. I am glad to notice that at last we. are to have trucking yoards here for stock, this will supply a long felt want and be a great convenience, to our fanmers and graziers, who will thus be saved the time and e...

Thie lateMfr Joslima Dixo sluipoinler, of Liverpool, diedl in thellauutumn of, 18s. iHe had in February that year, nade ai will ;but just before his depMtli hile fql unider a' folce of delusio not in recq?uct among the rich, and, believed himself a pauper. He consequently destroyed the 'wrill. It appears, hliowever, that to destoy it will a iinni must be of .sound mind ; .and as a dmrft of the will existed, a long and costly lawsuit ought to h'averesulted.: The chief person to benefit by. the destructioni of the will was, however Mr Abraham Dixon, a? brother of. the testator, who lost under thit: document '£60,000;. andl he in sisted thattliedraftshouldbe held valid, It was accordingly 'made vslid in the w.. Probate Couit, the main evidence as to the testator's mental unsoundness being given by Mr A. Dixon himself. Mouch credit was not clue to him, we su...

POETS AND SNAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 May 1886
POETS AND SNAKIES. A paragraph in the Melbourne cor respoudence of "The Uippsland Times" is as follows:- "This is about poets a: d snakes. At first blush the association will not strike the realer in its fullest force, but the two are more closely allied than the casual observer may note. The poet should possess that mental temp'era?elnt making one a " seer of visions and a dILreameIlr of (ireamsi," anld sonic rhymsters I wot of ficquently see visions, but I do not propose to deal with that peculiar bodily and mental condition causing the sutlbrers to "see snakes.' This is a triangul ,d paragrtph, religion, snakes, and a poet being the three points from which the lines are drawn. Thle poet is Mr John lRae, who relates: Awvay.beyrotl the Keilkr Plains, Where splitters get the wood Whichi they ceat up for railcay trains, A counu:ry village stood.

MELBOURNE. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 21 May 1886
MELBOURNE. (Fromn our own correspondet.) Wednesday. The first match of the Australian Eleven lhas not given the unmiticated joy which was fondly hoped for. Our boys went down before Lord Sheflields t1eam, and the news of their defeat was received in sullen silence, to quote the Mikado. .Of course there were ea tenuating circunstauces which are not likely to be lost sight of by our cricket entlhusiasts: The Australians were fresh from, a long voyage, lhad had no practice on the strange wicket, and the weather was wretched. And the fact that Lord Shellield's clevein was one of the strongest which could be picked and the misfortunes of our heroes are fully accounted for. According to re cent cablegrams the weather continues so unfavorable that the match against -Nottinghamn has had to be postponed. By the way the Austrmlians were enter tained at luncheon by tlhe Connois sioners of the Indian anld Colonial Ex hibition on the day before the match, that could not have anything to do with ...
