USEFUL BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 March 1914

" USEFUL BUSH FIRES. Though the bush and grass fires have Idone a great deal of damage, and caused 'losses to some settlers who could ill-afford a set-back, they have also done an immense amount of good. Now that the long looked for rain has come, there will soon be a good growth oft new grass; and, it is expectea, ample.feed for.the. winter. We are informed that the, destruction of standing timber, logs, and- rub bishrin the hills is remarkable. Se verail properties have almost been cleared, and it is said that it would Ihave?taken 20 years for the settlers to d6 the clearing in the ordinary •way. -On Mr. D.

SPORT AND PASTIME. ----o- BOWLING. V.B.A. v. GIPPSLAND. A team representing 'the Vlc (torian Bowling Association paid a visit to, Traralgon on Saturday, to play a representative Gippsland team. This is the third or fourth vislt. The match is looked for .ward to with a great deal.of in terest by the Gippsland bowlers, and the visitors always enjoy the trip. On Friday night, after the heavy rain in the afternoon, there did not appear to be the shghtest ,chance of the green being in a fit (state to play on the following day. Hoping agaiist hope, the officers .?t the local club decided not to cancel the match, but let the City bowlers come on. It was fortunate they did" so,. for the weather clea red on Saturday morning, and in the afternoon the green was mn a playable condition, though a good deal "heavier" than usual. The Sale team of four arrived by the morning, traih, but Bairnsdale, sus pecting perhaps that the match would not come off, did not send a*- team. Fourteen metropolitan b...

WONDERFUL CINEMA. - C' LAST DAYS OF POMPEII" The Lux Picture Co. gave Bui wer Lytton's story, entitled T he Last Days: of Pompeii," on the screen in Traralgon on Thursday ev?enirng last. The plcture was, without doubt, one of the finest ana.d nost wonderful productions ot the. kind -ever seen in Traralgon. The best of the previous cinemas are all dwarfed. It is marvellous how such pictures .were produced, and ift is no surprise to learn that the cinema cost' £1i5,000. Had the people of Traralgon realised what the pictures would be like, the hall would have been packed to the doors. Some of the pictures re presented the most beautiful scenes in ancient Pompeii. The picture is founded on .Bul wer Lytton's novel .of. the same name, and the plot is carefuliypre served throughout. The life and customs of the gay and luxurious city of Pompeii, atthe foot of Ve suvius, are admirably portrayed. -hlYi ceries are :laid in -the city it self, and the Tealistic"'effects :of the destruction of th...

DECENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 March 1914

DECENTRALISATION. To those who watch affairs in VictOria the present .outlook: ind' cates.serious trouble -ahead.'-- iNot sinde the period of the great land boom of tpventy five-'ears ago, has there been such a congestion ot' the life of the State at the centre. Notwithstanding all that the Go vernment has "been attempting to do for the country dsitricts, the people are steadily 'leaving rural for city industries. The extensive irrigation schemes which were to do so much are not all-they have b'een craicked up to be,'and the money laid out on them-is nbtiriow worth twenty shillings in the pound : "All this seems quite natural when one reflects, on the manner mn which the whole State is run by and for the benefit of the people iot Melbouirne.:'-Half the population of the State iS grouped round the meeting place of parliament, and personal influence is still an Impor tant- factor iin our political:life.

THE PROPOSED ELECTRIC Light and Power Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 March 1914

THE, PROPOSED ELECTRIC Light and Power Scheme. Mr. Hunt, a gas engineer and expert from Oakleigh, whb is as sociated with the Colomnial Gas Company, made an inspection of the Traralgon gas works a few days ago. It is surmised that he will supply a report to the shire council. He states that an out lay of £650 will be required to im prove and modermnse the works. It is presumed that the council will not do anything in this direc tion until the electric scheme has had exhaustive and unbiassed con ,sideration. There are those who would condemn the proposal un heard. They are so cock-sure that gas is the best that if the opposite view is expressed a sickly, com passionate smile spreads over their face. It is not necessary here to argue one way or the other, but it is advisalble to plead that the electric hlight should have a fair deal. Those householders who are de bating the advisableness of instal lng a gas stove should defer fur. ther action until the question is decided by the counc...

MAFFRA BEET FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 March 1914

MAFFRA BEET FACTORY. t I (From the " Spectator") The recommendation of the Ml nisters ot Agriciilture and Lands to tihe cabiiet to close do~n the sugar works at Maffra at the ter mination of the present campaign, comes as somewhat of . thunder clap to the residcnts of M.ara and district. Government methods are always open to criticism, and those adopted in connection with the re suscitation of the beet sugar in dustry for the past four years are subjects for severe criticism. In every move they were "the day after the Fair,'. whilst individual growers, with little experience., were plainly provmgc that beetf growing under irrigation conditions was a distindtly payable proposi tion. Yet it only dawned on the departmental heads at the last moment, and a perfunctory move, late as usual in the season, was made on the closer settlement blocks to irrigate the present crop. Even the spasmodic effort showed the value of water applied when the plant required same, as was clearly demonstrated...

THANKSGIVING SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 March 1914

THANKSGIVING SERVICES. Harvest thanksgiving services were held at the Methodist church, Traralgon, .on Sunday. At the morning service the Rev. Scurr preached on some spiritual sugges gestions on sowing and reaping, based on the words: "Those who sow in tears shall reap in Joy." Psalm 126, v.. 16. He said that all sunshine would hot produCe a gopod harvest, and a life of all joy and pleasure was impossible. In the evening, the preacher took his text from .Habakkuk, chap. 3, verse 17 and 18: "Although the fig . tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruits be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meal, the flock shall be cutoff from the fold, and there shall lbe no herd in the stalls. Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; 1 will joy in the God of my salvation." It was the lesson of the empty barn and stockyard. It was easy. said the preacher, to thank God when the harvest was abundant, but the note of thankfulness had its full est meaning when the har...

BOWLERS' EXCURSION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 31 March 1914

BOWLERS' EXCURSION. SThe annual excursion, organised by the Traralgon Bowling Club, on Thursday last, was not as success ful, financially, as it would have bden had the day previous been bright and fine. For this reason, the special tramin to the Narracan Falls did not take more than 150 people, and there was room for, perhaps, 100 mpore passengers. As an outing, the trip was a most de cided success, and .there was not a single individual who did not thoroughly enjoy himself or her self. The special train left Traral gon at 9.30, and by special arran gements with the department, it ran beyond theusual stopping sta tion, as far as the falls, so that the passengers ahlighted on the line within a very short distance of the falls. Lunch was ready about noon and hot water and milk was provided on the spot. This "al fresco" meal was heartily en joyed. This agreeable occupation over, the trippers saunteredct about the locality.

TOONGABBIE. ------o-- The heavy rain storm on Friday afternoon startled some of the residents. The little creek near Mr. R. Ferguson's orchard was swelled into a torrent, and the roaring of the rushing waters was heard for some distance. The water brought down a lot of silt debris, and even a large log. The current got into Mr. Ferguson's orchard, and washed a lot of the soil away from the fruit trees, some of which were almost swept away. It will take the owner a long time to clear away the rubbish. Further along the foothills Mr. Wood's or chard was very much damaged by the large hail stones. When riding home on Friday, Mr. WV. Heywood's horse fell, and he sustained a broken arm.
