ACCIDENT ON RAILWAYS. NOVEL INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 20 March 1914

ACCIDENT ON RAILWAYS, NOVEL INCIDENT.. Arather curious accident hap pened at Trafalgar station on Tuesday evening. It appears that during shunting operations, Por ter Waters was at the points when a truck moved some piping that may have been carelessly stacked on the goods siding. The length of the piping caught 'Waters, and knocked him away from the .points lever. The result was that .the fore wheels of a itruck of potatoes went on one set of rails, and the rear wheels on another set of rails. The inevitable consequences was that the truck turned over on its side, scattering the bags of potatoes on the 'permanent way, and one end of the 'truck blocked the main line. The casualty van and gang were despatched fromn Traralgon, but before the engine could get through about 40 of the locaL re sidents had righted the truck. All that the expert gang had to do was to put the truck on therails. There was no damage, and only one of the bags of potatoes burst open. But for the promptitude ot ...

OBITUARY. DEATH OF MISS. AGNES I. CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 20 March 1914

OBITUARY. --0- - DEATH OF MISS. AGNES I. CAMPBELL. The uncertainty of life has been again further exemplified in Tra- ralgon, during the week, by the death of Miss. Agnes Isabella Campbell, eldest daughter of the late Dugald Campbell, and Mrs. Campbell, of "Greenwood," Tra- ralgon, on Wednesday. It ap- pears that Miss. Campbell con- tracted a cold some years ago, and thls eventually developed into pul- monary trouble. Though every thing that was possible was done for the sufferer, the disease could not be stamped out, and Death claimed its victim as stated. Prior to this attack the deceased had a robust constitution, and seemed to have a long and useful career be fore her. Miss. Campbell was but 32 years   of age--just passed the threshold of womanhood. She was born at old Traralgon Park homestead, where her parents resided for many years. Very deep sympathy is widely expressed for Mrs. Camp- bell, the surviving sister, and the two brothers, Archie and Dugald, in the sa...

The same artists were cn gaged to give a concert in the Traralgon mechanics' institute the following evening (-Thursday) mn aid of the local St. Michael's Ro man Catholic church, and it was styled an " Irish National Concert" -the items being principal old time Irish melodies, which are al ways sweet, and lose nothing by repetition, and bring back memor ies of the "green Isle across the 6ea." Notwithstanding a week ot counter attractions, staunch sup porters flocked in from the out lying districts, and before the opening item commenced the hall was well filled. The artists cornm pnrised the Melbourne Quartette party, consisting of Miss. Evelyn Ashley, Miss. Elva Rogers, 4ir. George Chant, and Mr. James Wade; also Mr. Jack Bell (hu morist), and Miss.

MOO.NDARRA. -o Bush fires ihave been with us since late in January, but they did not become very aggressive until albout 'ten days ago, when a windy day brought them from all direc tions. Last Sunday week Mr. Elton and two of his near neigh bors were nearly burnt out. But for plenty of assistance it is cer tain that Mr. Elton's .entire home stead would have been demolished. The ihouse caught fire over a dozen times, iand sparks and cinders were blown in on top of the ceiling, and eventually burnt their way through The inew public hall at Gould also haa a narrow escape. The fire came A.vithin a few feet of it at one time, when all the residents were battling for their own homes. The name of Harris is' to be al tered to "Erica," in order to bring the post office and railway station under the same designa tron. Hitherto it has been Harris railway station and the Upper Moondarra post office right op posite. Postal department decli nea to cahll the post office Harris, because of duplicat...

FLYNN'S CREEK PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 24 March 1914

FLYNN'S CREEK PICNIC. -o-- A very successful picnic was held at Lower Flynn's Creek on Thursday last. The spot chosen, the pines near the school, was an ideal one, the trees affording ample shade. After the toothsome fare provided by the ladies had been partaken of, a good sports pro gramme was run off. Throughout the racing was very keen, and prin zes of toys were provided for all of the many children present. The married ladies' race caused great amusement, owing to the number of dead-heats until the winner was finally decided on. The open handicap was won by J. Richardson, after a close contest. The Qhurdle race resulted in a dead heat between J. Richardson and J. Fryatt, but the latter scored easily in the run off. Among the visitors from Traral gon, was Mr. Mac. Christensen, who, for a considerable portion of the afternoon, gave the children and young ladies rides in his car. Great credit is due to the ladies (who assisted in every way to make .the-picnic a success.)
