TRARALGON SHIRE COUNCIL WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11. The roadranger (Mr. M'.Donald) reported that since last meeting he had reglstered 'i4 horses arid '16 head of cattle, and co lected £6 12s in fees. He also reported: I would like to draw your attention to the scarcity of water on the roads at present.- I would suggcst that various watering places be opened in the shire. There are two roads on Rintouhl's Creek, one on iBcnn'ett's Creek, and one at Flynn's' Creek. All these places have splendidl water. A watering place could easily be made at the river near the bluff, at a ery mn ' cost, say, 10s. If these Dlaces were opened up they would serve the public as well as the stock. I have also to report that the travel Img sheep nusance has become very acute duiihgthe.month. One mob were in the town for over a week.

THE COST OF LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 March 1914
THE COST OF LIVING, According to the latest statis tics, and the late enqmuiry by Judge Heydon, in N.S.W., we find it generally expressed that the cost of h?mgng is steadily mounting, and even though wagles might.n rise, the extra money obtained is swallowed up mn extra expense. In these circumstances, it is refreshing to find that you can still obtain drapery at ,omewhere near tlhe " old values," by the simple expedient of doing your shopping at Bond's, the well-known value givers, who are always ready to do their part in reducing for you the cost of living.

DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 March 1914
DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PRE VENTING FOOD FERMEN TATION. Food fermentation is the cause t all the discomfort and pain all the-dyspeptlcs suffer. It does not necessarily follow, however, that mn order to obtamn relet they must deny themselves the enjoyment of eatming sb-caIled 'indigestible luxu ries. The,most satisfactory me thod of oercommg the difficulty would be to prevent the fermen tatlon from occuring at all, and this can be done by a very simple means. It must first be explamned that'most of the food we eat con t'amns a certain quantity of acid forming elements, and indigestib:e foods, of course, contamin a larger proportion. When these foodsare eaten, the acid collects, irnritates the walls of the stomach, and it causes the food to ferment while digestlng. 'This fermenting food also gives off gas, which distends the stomach, causing that full, un comfortable feei'ng so often noti ced after'eating. The root of the trouble-is the acid fermentation. To succes...

BON VOYAGE. TO MR. AND MRS. J. W. GRUBB. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Grubb, of Traralgon, are about to make a trip to Great Britain and the United States. A pleasant little gathering was held at the Methodist church on Friday evening &nbsp; &nbsp; to wish them "bon voyage," and also to hand each of them a little memento and tangible expression of regard. There was a very good gathering, which included repre sentatives of other churches. The Rev. W. H. Scurr presided. In his introductory remarks he said that Mr. and Mrs. Grubb were go ing away to see other lands and other faces, and the purpose of the meeting was to see that the guests did not forget the friends they were leaving behind. Before he came to Traralgon he learned that the Methodist church had reason to be indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Grubb, and he found that such was the case. They could never repay Mr. and Mrs. Grubb. He once knew a man who owed money to a tradesman, but would never own up to it. The Method ists admi...

Owing to the committee not being able to agree, the mat- ter was left over for a month, to allow the seretary time to write to ...

TRARALGON RACING CLUB. IMPROVEMENTS' ;'"TO 'THE. COURSE. Since the opening meeting on the new racecourse, the committee have effected very material impro vements. The inside rail along the track has been extended another 25 chains, making it about three furlongs long now. This fence itr very useful, in preventing horses running off, and as the rail leans inward horses pressing against it cannot hit the posts with their feet. The committee intends extend ing the reserve along the straight to give the spectators more accom modation, and motor cars and buggies will be kept away from the fence, so that the public will *have an unobstructed view of the rac ing. SBy the date of the meeting, 40 stalls will be built in the bird cage, which will be a great con venience, and will be much appre ciated by horse owners. The committee has chartered a special train to leave Melbourne at 8.16 on the morning of their next race meeting, and it will fol low the ordinary passenger train, which leaves a...

The Gormandale Road. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 20 March 1914
--- -- - . . _?· FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1914. The Gormandale Road--Four motor cars went out to the sports at Gormandale, but had the ptwners known the state ot the road it is safe to say that not one of the cars would have been taken out. There are numerous holes the whole length of the route, and parts of the road near Traralgon are decidedly dangerous for vehi cies, let alone motor cars, which travel much faster, If: is a pityithe shire council do not fill the holes in the road way immediately they appear ,then the roads would be kept good at a fraction of the cost. That portion of the road known as the Sandhills, is almost as bad as ever, the graver being worn through in many.places. The hill going into the valley is a dread ful state, and no one will think of going to Gormandale for pleasure with the road in its present state. The Rosedale council will very pro bably push o.n with the new devia tion down the -hill, and the other portion of the road, under the Country Roads Act. The T...

CARRAJUNG. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs day, of last week, will long be re memberea by the Carrajung resi dents, owing to the devastation wrought throughout the district by one of the fiercest and most, de structive forest fires which has fal len to the lot of man to stand against in the defence of property, the reward of many years of in dustry and self demnal. Early on Tuesday afternoon it was plainly evident that the township was in danger, but by the timely inter vention of a few residents, a fire break was burnt against the ap proaching demon. Otherwise the hotel, public hall and post office would have fared badly. On Wed nesday, fanned by a strong north wind, the fire attacked the proper ties of D. J. Knox, Hall, Tyrrell, Buxton; and others, and it was only by very strenuous fighting that these homes were saved. In its destructive onward rush the fire crossea tlie Blackwarry road dur ing t he night, and on Thursday morning it swept through the pro perties of R. Doultree, G. Do...
