March 28, 1912

     Well done, Boy Scouts.  A fire broke out by the railway tracks and a bunch of intending scouts went and subdued what was becoming a dangerous fire.

     Property market is showing signs of activity.  This week Pitter and Jones sold the brick cottage and acre of land, belonging to Mrs. Shattack to R. Brown, of Jumping Pound.

     What an extremely useful telephone pole is that one in front of the post office.  Nearly every week it stops a runaway, and on Monday it caught the runaway team of Butcher Johnson's.  Luckily, no-one was hurt, but the wagon looked like a badly battered gun carriage when the horses had finished their fun.


      Warned by another fall of plaster from the ceiling of the school house recently, and the miraculous escape of innocents, teachers and scholars took a holiday, whilst the trustees completed the work of partial demolition by stripping the entire ceiling.  The job of cleaning up, however, lingers in the memory, though tempered by the thought of the added stimulus given to education in the relief afforded from fear of possible injury.
