CARAMUT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

CARAMUT. (From our own Correspondent.) The extreme heat, and the pro tracted dry season experienced is having a disastrous effect on gar dens and pastures. Not to improve conditions, parrots have come down from north in thousands, and are stripping orchards and gardens of anything juicy, attacking also the hard fruit. Residents are complaining about the shortage of water in their now depleted water tanks, and unless rain falls shortly a water famine will result. The Caramut Coursing Club has decided to run two special coursing events during the coming season. The election of office-bearers and the fixing of dates have been de ferred till a later meeting. Farming operations are now about completed. The results ob tained have ' again proved the fertility and productive quality of our rich soils. Farmers are well I pleased with the yields, but a little dissatisfied with the lowness of prices. So far Caramut has been immune from bush fires, but that fact does not make the residents wish...

COLLISION IN YARRA. BAY STEAMER 'AND INTER ,v ;; STATE LINER. COOGEE BADLY DAMAGED. | THREE PASSENGERS INJURED. The steamer Coogee, 800 tons, the largest steamer on the Mel bourn e-Geel on g- service, was badly j damaged on Wednesday afternoon as the result of a collision in the Yarra with the inter-State liner Bombala, 4000 tons.

The Bom bala had been lying at No. 9 berth on the north side of the river, and was being towed stern first to the swinging basin a few hundred yards down stream when the mishap took place. The Bombala was leaving for Sydney and had to reach the basin before the bow could be headed down stream. At the same time the Ccogee was pro ceeding slowly up stream from Geelong.

AN URGENT REQUIREMENT. FIRE BELL WANTED. A FUND OPENED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

AN URGENT REQUIREMENT. FIRE BELL WANTED. A FUND OPENED. A fire bell is badly needed for. Mortlake, as the ringing of the school bell does not, during day time, provide a quick enough, alarm, on account of the school bell being rung so frequently dur ing the progress of. school lessons. What is needed is a bell with a deep sonnorous clang—a distinct sound to any other bell—which wouid immediately rouse everyone, and be the means of indicating that a fire was in progress. It would be found if a fire-bell were obtained that the response of belters would be quicker—al though it cannot be said people are slow in turning out under the pre sent system. But the trouble is in the daytime as already indicated, and the help of a few workers at the early stages of a conflagration, may mean the saving of consider able damage. Such a bell would not cost a very great sum, and if it were obtained the Mortlake Fire Brigade would provide a suitable stand for it at their station house, where all the f...

A send-off was being given to the local constabls, xvho had been trans ferred to another district. As he was a popular officer all classes in the country town responded liberally to the call" for subscrip tions. It was, however, with some reluctance that the organiser of the farewell presentation ap proached O'Flaherty, for O.Flah erty had been arrested by the de parting constable on innumerable occasions when he had had a "dhrop too much." Anyhow, it would never do for O'Flaherty to feel that he had been slighted, for he was an excellent fellow when "the dhrink wasn't in him." "Sure and 0*11 be delighted to," O'Flaherty exclained, when asked for a contribution.

HOW CECIL RHODES DISCOVERED A DIAMOND FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

HOW CECIL RHODES DISCOVERED A DIAMOND FIELD. A German trader in skins and os trich feathers from the interior, with Pietermariuburg as liis frontier sta tion, drove into Capetown one after* I noon. He had been two months bring ing in his waggons, each drawn by ten yoUe of lone-homed oxen, from the frontier trading post named. This trader, among other curious thie.-gs, had a dozen or so very bril liant pehbles, which he was showing to his frisnds. "Fine specimens of globular quartz," paid a doctor, newly arrived, who had just enough of a smattering of geology t0 nothing at all about it. "Would you mind giving me one 01 two of those (xibhles?" said a tall, dark-skinned, slender young man. "Or I will buy them from you at whatever you may consider them worth. X have no such stones in my collection at hoiao." "My dear sir," the other replied, witiz the heartiness of the dweller on the veldt, "you are very welcome to a couple. Pick out any two you may fancy." The dark young man selected t...

ESCAPE FROM A MILITARY PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

ESCAPE FROM A MILITARY PRISON. One of the most ingenious and dar ing escapes lYout prison tliat ever took I'-lace happened during the American Civil War, when 10!) Union officers es caped by means of a tunnel from Lib !>v Prison, Richmond. This building was originally a warehouse, hut bars li.id been placed at all the windows, and as it stood quite detached, it was a comparatively easy matter to guard it securely with a small force and keep every door and window in full view ; from without. There were 1200 army j ofiicflrs kept in this prison. They were , allowed to wander practically all over j th-s building, with the exception of , the cellars. Of these, only one was not .generally in use, and to gain access to this, the bricks at the back of a fire piaco were removed, and an S-shaped passage made into the cellar. This work was done at night with a knife and an old chisel, and the bricks re placed for the next day, as the fire place was in constant use. The cellar having been r...

BUSH FIRES. LARGE AREAS DEVASTATED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

BUSH FIRES. — t: ■ LARGE AREAS DEVASTATED. The immunity from bush fires which this district has enjoyed this summer was broken on Thursday evening, when a very large tract of country, covering between 3000 to 4000 acres was burned. The out break was first noticed on "Boon erah" Station, at about five o'clock immediately after a severe flash of vivid lightning, and dense clouds of smoke quickly rose skywards. Fanued by an easterly wind, the fire, assisted with a splendid growth of grass, spread with marvellous rapidity. It was not long before the face of the fire ex tended to a width of over three miles. The timber—a great quantity of which was dry—soon ignited, and this added to the seriousness of the outbreak. By seven o'clock the fire had assumed enormous dimensions, and the leaping flames among the grass and tussocks, and burning trees, made a glare that could be seen for miles. Word was received in Mortlake at about 7.30 that great danger to property was involved, particularly i...
