AN ENGINEERING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914

AN ENGINEERING FEAT. A remarkable feat of engineering was .-ompleted recently in Cranston, B.I. The cliimney of the_ Narragansefrt Brewery, 192 ft. in height, owing to undermining by water, was so badly ;ut of plumb (leaning nearly 4 ft. to wards the east) that its falling seemed issured. The fato of a £1600 chimney seemed to be imminent and certain. J. H. Gerard, civil engineer, of Cranston, R.I., undertook to straighten this rival j of the leaning tower of Pisa. The plan . devised by Mr. Gerard was a simple ' Dne. One course of bricks three-quar ters of the way through the chimney ivas removed from the west side, and its place was taken by wedges of oak. Aji 8 ft. bed of concrete was then laid Against the foundation on the east side. Two holes were cut in the east side of the chimney, and in these were insert?'! 12 in. steel beams 25 ft. in length. These were used as levers to tip the 192 ft. chimney toward tha west. The wooden wedges w^ro gradually burno.J out by a gas flame driv...

TOONGABBIE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914

TOONGABBIE. A very cool change has set in, antdi a Jjghf shower ot rain has fal len, unfortunately only adout suffi cient to check the bush fires. A good rainfall now .would be the making of the district. At present the ground is parched, and hardly a green blade of grass is to be seen. The disastrous bush' fires that were Isuch a terror to the residents ot the township about a week ago, have burnt themselves out. Re pairs to fencing are now in full swing. Early on Thursday morn ing last a log fence on Mr. Ste wart's property at Toongabbie was discovered to be on fire, and must hav ebeen burning half the night. How it came to foe set on fire is a mystery. Willing hands got to work, iand made it safe by burning a break around the burning fence, and then watching it all day. Street lamps are badly heeded in this township, and the matter was brought up at the meeting of the Progress Association on Saturday night. It was decided to, ask the council to supply four lamps, and place them a...

AN ENGLISH VISITOR. Ruling Classes. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914

AN ENGLISH VISITOR. Ruling Classes. When Australia was a new to^ <inrd a bri^i^, gcx/gidpner had made the 'discovery th^it it was the Anli podes of Great Britain, it became fashionable to make it antipodean in every way. Travellers told gor geous tales of how things were in verted in Australia. Swans were black. Birds did not sing. Flow, ers had no scent. Cherries had the stone outside. Ducks flew backwards. Water ran up hil1, .and all the rest of the grotesque lies which adorned the geography books of Grea.t Britain for a long while. Perhaps it is the influ ence of that antipodean atmos phere which was created round Australia which has caused us to do things differently now that we are at all events adolescent. We do invent things a good deal. In England women fight desperately for votes. Here we have given them the right to vole, and men fight desperately to get them to -exercise it. But it is in the mat ter of the ruling 'class that we have our most notable inversion. ...

The club haxl a .vfirjed expenW ence last season. For years past, almost since the inception of thei club, it has been recognised that the club was at a disadvantage in not having a plumpton for their coursing meetings. Although some ot the fastest dogs in Australia have been bred and rared in the district the local public have never had the opportunity of seeing their* perform, unless they were fortun ate enough to be 'able to attend the Waterloo Cup meeting, Derby, etc. Their Oiwners have been, and still are, prominent members of the Traralgon club, but they could n<f5 afford to take the risk of allowing such valuable dogs to run at the Traralgon meetings wh i'.e the coursing was conducted in the open paddocks .among the logs and fenc...

CARRAJUNG.. The rainfall at Carrajung for the month of February was 14 points, which fell on the 7th of the month. This has been an ex ceptionally dry summer. Less than three inchesof ram has fallen dur ing the past three months. The hills under droughty conditions present rather a dismal appear ance to the eye. The fire's of a couple of weeks ago, which caused a- great deal of' damage, are now fairly under control, and unless the present doughty conditions con ,tinue, there should be no further outbreaks.

BLACKWARRY. There has been great damage done in this district by the recent bush fires, and miles of country have been swept. Mr. A. Berry man and Mr. W. E. Gumming lost houses, sheds, etc.. all their grass, and a considerable amount of fencing. It 'wp.s with great difficul ty that some of the houses were saved, the heat and smoke being almost unbearable. Some time ago the settlers ap plied to the Education department to build a school at this place; as with long distances and bad roads there are a number of children growing up in ignorance, and re ceiving no education whatever. But. as usual, the department can not see their way clear to build schools in outlying districts. The department stated that if iMhe set tlers provided a suitable building a teacher would be sent up. The settlers decided to sign a joint and several guarantee, and build a public hall for school and general purposes. The building is now completed, and will be opened on the 20th of March next, with a concert an...
