  • 11 Mar 1914, A fire broke out in the scrub in Cardinia Park on Sunday morning last and burned fiercely all day. Fortunately the spread of the fire was checked by a willing band of fire-fighters and no serious damage was done although the flames got dangerously close to the residences of Miss Willis and Mr Savage. Mr Cottell's haystacks also had a narrow escape. Part of the fencing between Mr Cottell's and Mr Robinson's and also a few pannels of the park fence were destroyed and some firewood owned by Messrs Pateman, Robinson and Aurisch was burned. The bridge over the creek near the Cardinia Hotel was slightly charred.14

  • 26 Aug 1911, MEAT PRESERVATION.
    LAUNCESTON. Friday— Mr George P. Brydon arrived in Launceston to day from South Africa, representing the Hens patent method for preserving meat. The inventor, who is a South African, seems to have discovered the secret of preventing decomposition setting in, which it does so early under ordinary conditions in the hot weather. Mr. Brydon is provided with credentials of exceptionally high merit from many of the leading medical men, and health inspectors of the South African colonies. One test is especially interesting. Over 1,000 head of oxen were killed at Zoutpansbursr, and treated with this method. The carcases were sent on a journey by mule carts and trains lasting over five days, no special provision being made for their storage, and they arrived at Johannesburg in excellent condition, and were subsequently distributed for human consumption. In another instance a carcase retained its quality when treated with the
    Hens method, after being exposed to the glaring rays of the sun for 14 days. Mr. Brydon is a Tasmanian native, and well-known on the North West Coast. He was for some years prior to going to South Africa in the Tasmanian Education Department. He leaves for Burnie on Tuesday.10
  • 27 Jun 1918, There have been many changes in Berwick recently. Mr Brydon, who has purchased Mr Cottell's property on the Manuka road, is now in residence there. Mr Cottell has purchased Mrs Maxwell's property in Harkaway.11
  • 26 Jan 1931, Death of son. BRYDON.-On January 24, at Armadale, Victoria, Percy Raymond, eldest son of George Percy and Alma J. Brydon, of "Elimatta," Devonport, aged 36 years.12
