DISTRICT NEWS. Allendale. TIMELY SAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. (From Our Correspondents.) Allendale. TIMELY SAVE. At a late hour on Friday night an outbreak of fire occurred at the busi- ness premises of Mr H. Connell, Wallacetown. Fortunately the fire was detected in its early stage by Mr D. Lyon, who was returning from Broomfield. He aroused the house- hold, and with a few buckets of water the fire was extinguished, but not before considerable damage had been done to two of the rooms and passage. It appears Mrs Connell, who had occasion to go into the room, left a candle burning whilst she went out to attend to another matter, and tbe woodwork of the mirror becoming ignited, the wall quickly caught. The fire burst through into the passage. Mr Lyon's arrival was timely, and a good save resulted. The loss will be partly ccvered by insurance. The brigade attended and did good work, and Mr Connell subsequently treated them to refreshments. FIRE BRIGADE INSPECTION. Deputy Chief Officer Ellis, of the Country Fire Brigades' Board, pai...

CORRESPONDENCE. SCHOOL COMMITTEES, &c. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 February 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. SCHOOL COMMITTERS, &c. To the Editor. Siu,— In the letter of islli jnr,t. from tin; president of the committee it was slated that iny former letter was insulting and untruthful. Although the president had half a column last Tuesday, he neither proved it nor withdrew it. As you know, Sir, a gentleman always apologises when he is beaten The mere fact that "E. 0.1). Sinclair " docs not.use a mile of initials is nothing. All the Ullina residents are not fond of flourishing '.he whole alphabet either before or after their names. Now, as the president is so sure of womanly courtesy, can he tell me why the woman who is so courteous was not treated courteously by the i committee when, fully six months ago, she asked (or a grate for the residence ? When the committee can supply this, hut will not, isn't it a small sample of persecution ? Some people at Ullina may like half cookcd food—personally I do not. The morals and customs of the Ullina people are alright. We onl...

I would be altogether un worlhy of the honorable position of local correspondent to your paper if 1 made statements which were not strictly in accordance with facts. The statements I made in the paragraph re ferred to are absolutely true in every particular. "li.O.D.S." states that the trees fell to Ihe west, and if they did of course they fell on the fence, so lh.it your correspondent is self convicted on that point.

To tho Editor. SiK,—I have received a culling from your issue of the 20/^/1wliicli adver tises the coming election of a new school committee at Ullina. As it contains 011c or two misleading state ments, which reflects somewhat on my wood culting ability, I askthe privilege o( a iiortion of your space to reply Iheieto. Hrielly the statement is that the old coinniittee had allowed trees to lie slaughtered, causing damage to fencing, and creating sources of danger to the children. The truth is, the trees were not slaughtered; they wire dead before the axe touched tliein. There was absolutely no damige to fencing The most expert axeman could not have "felled" them at .1 more correct right angle away from the fence. ,*;\d as lot " danger, " I think most practical people will admit that a dead tree standing is m""-' potentially j dan^eiou:; than a log lyirnj on the Ai; for I hi? old rutniniUfC jllov. in^ Uu it v. i ■ '<>: i unI, tin? timt? occupied in the dninu " flj'j \voik...
