  • 23 Apr 1928, A large gathering of residents of the district met on Saturday night to bid farewell to Mr J M Reid and Mrs Reid, who are leaving the district to live with their son, Dr. Stanley Reid, at Korumburra. Mr. Reid has lived in this dis trict for nearly 10 years, making his home here on retiring from the Victorian public service. Though retired from active work in the service, he has continued his interest in many matters connected with tourist activities in the State, and his knowledge and experience have been of considerable benefit to the district. The farewell took the form of a social: -Mr. Reid was presented with a fine writing desk. Mrs. Reid was entertained by the Misses Corder at a croquet afternoon, and was presented with a bag from the members of the croquet club, of which she had been the president. Mr. Reid resigned as treasurer of the Congregational Church, and his place has been filled by Mr. A. Cornwell.16

  • 3 Mar 1920, At the Magistrate's Court yesterday afternoon, before Mr S. E. McCarthy, S.M., Reine Burnside (Mr R. A. Cuthbert) was granted maintenance at the rate of £1 12/6 per week against her husband, Frederick Burnside.6
  • 3 May 1922, Reine Victoria Burnside (Mr E. A. Cuthbert) applied for a maintenance order in respect of her child from Bertha Burnside (Mr W. F. Tracy). Defendant was the mother of applicant's husband, who had deserted her and the child. After hearing the evidence the Magistrate said that he would like very much to make an order, but the law was against the applicant. The action of the grandmother in refusing to help to support the child was a callous one. The application would, however, be refused.7
  • 28 Sep 1923, THE COURTS. Reine Victoria Burnside (Mr R. A. Cuthbert) v. Frederick Tahu Burnside, desertion.8
