Buish Fires:. Nine-Mile Creek Country. Bridge Snved from Destruction. There came an aend on- Saturday to the immunity which this district had so far enjoyed from destructive bush lires; in spite of the extremely intlliammable condition of the grass and other distinct fire-food consequent on the great heat of the last few weeks.- Fire, broke out on Saturday, in a reserve up the creek above .Cawker's stables'at Nine ,Mile Creek, on the MLount Gambier road. and though it extended slowly owing to the bareness of the scrub country in vegetation, the flames gradually spread .over a strip about half a mile wide on each side- of the creek, and ran down across the Mount Gambier road at the stables and over a considerable area of country on towards the Glenoelg. The ineie-Milo creek bridge caught on fire at a number of places, and awould have undoubtedly been destroyed but the' fortunate arrival on the scene of Mr G. Harris, who, with Mr O'Donnell, manager at "Nangeoln," had motored past the ...

Distinguished Visitor. Statesman and Reformer. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 19 February 1914
Distinguished Visitor. Statesmnln and Reformer. In Earl Grey, who with Lady Grey, and their daughter (Lady Sybil Grey) is now being feted in Melbourne, Australia hits a visitor all Australians are delighted to honor, independent of his exalted rank, because he.is a one whose personal ability and ;inolinations I have made him of inestimable service to the empire as a wise statesman, and great proconsul. As a leader among British states men, as Governor-General of Canada, and still more as a pri vate individual doing his best to improve the living conditior s of the masses in Great Britain' and abroad, Earl Grey has made his mark "off his own bat." Because of that, and because he is a man of wisdom and understanding, whose words, being worth listen ing to, carry weight, and teach things worth learning, he is made heartily welcome in Australia as he would never be otherwise, were he just one of the rank-and file of the.British nobility, or even a Royal Duke. It is the man himself, Aust...
