MORE GRASS FIRES. DESTRUCTION AT CARLSRUHE TRAIN TO DAYLESFORD THOUGHT RESPONSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 3 March 1914
MORE GRASS FIRES. DESTRUCTION AT CARLSRUHE TRAIN TO DAYLESFORD THOUGHT RESPONSIBLE. One of those destructive fires to grass lands to which we are now al most growing accustomed, occurred near Carlsruhe on Monday morning last after the passing of the train to Daylesford. The conflagration occur red in the properly familiarly known as "Coilsfield," and owned by Mrs. W. R. M. Kerr, of Kyneton. Since Mr. James Maxwell's conclusion of ten ancy a, few weeks ago, the farm'has been let to Mr. Jesse Adams, and it is unfortunate for him that he has lost about 30 acres of good grass. Aided by a powerful wind, it soon swept into Mr Connolly's property, which is be tween Mr Bowers' and the "Coils field" home. There it consumed near ly 40 acrcs of grass and swept on and demolished the house, which was a wooden structure. Passing into the lands of Mr G. Thomson, eight or ten acres were swept with alarming rapid ity. Mrs. Coiles was evidentaly less fortunate, since quite 20 acres of her grass -land...
MR HARRY HAWKER, AVIATOR [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 3 March 1914
MR HARRY HAWKER, AVIATOR - ? - -----. At the Victoria Park. Sydney, on Saturday Mr. Harry Hawker gave an other striking: exhibition of his mas tery of the air. He was out of sight amongst the clouds at times. Whether Hawker will attempt the Sydney to "Melbourne flight depends entirely on the inducements offered. In England racing prizes entering five figures are to be awarded airmen, and Hawker is returning for the Gordon Bennett Cup event of £ iS.ooo. The attempt would necessitate certain al terations in the machinc; notably the fixing of a petrol tank in the passen ger seat, as at present the machine cannot carry sufficient petrol or castor cil for so long a trip, which, is expect ed to take six hours. Mr. C. Kingston, manager for Hawker, said Plawker would visit Bal larat and Bendigo. and would give a farewell ily in Melbourne before leav ing in Apiil. Hawker left for Mel bourne yesterday. - '--Opening of the Quail Season.-\es t'erday the opening of the quail season tooiloplace:-...
