  • 19 Jan 1932, DAMAGE AT BEACONSFIELD. 200 Beaters Fight to Save Houses.
    BEACONSFIELD UPPER Monday - One of the largest fires the district has known occurred on Friday and Saturday, when a strong wind fanned fires that had been burning in the gullies, and they swept through the thick scrub. One fire threat ened Mr McMillan's house and the apple and lemon orchard around the house was seriously damaged. On the Officer road, east of the township, a fire burned around the property of Mr Cordner, and destroyed a summerhouse. On Saturday the wind blew with greater force, and the fire, which had damaged Mr McMillan's property, raged the gully toward the houses on St George's road on top of the ridge. All the assistance available was called out and it was only through the untiring efforts of the fire-fighters assisted by the Berwick and Dandenong fire brigades that the position was made safe by evening. Three beaters had a strenuous fight to save Mr Cordner's buildings, and immediately afterwards Kyogle, which is built on one of the upper spurs leading to the ridge along which St George's road runs was threatened. The beaters had eventually to leave the house to the fire, which burnt up to it, but did not set it on fire. By this time 200 men were fighting the fires. The postmistress tendered invaluable help keeping all parts of the district in touch with developments.
    The efforts of the fire-fighters on Saturday were successful in saving the houses on the west side of the township but the fire was not extinguished. It continued to burn up the gullies farther to the west. The wind increased on Sunday morning, and blew the flames to the north.
    Danger was threatened at the back of Mrs Keeble's and Mrs Gough's houses, but there were enough volunteers to prevent any damage. In the early afternoon some of the properties on the old Harkaway road were threatened, and a party of fighters went out to them. By early even ing they had saved the situation.
    On the east side of the township the house occupied by Mr Savery and one owned by Mr Berglund were in danger. The wind had changed to the east, and an urgent message was sent for assistance, as the flames were travelling rapidly up the hill toward the properties. Helpers were sent by car, and after a strenuous fight they saved the houses and outbuildings, al though some of the beautiful hedges and the garden of Mr Berglund's property were much burned.
    The flames were subdued until this afternoon, when a fresh outbreak occurred at the bottom of Judge Bevan's property and threatened to destroy Mrs Wheeler's house. A large number of helpers got the fire under control, and then they left hurriedly to burn a break against a fire which was burn ing up the steep gully below Judge Bevan's house.
    The whole of the hills from the Beaconsfield road to the top of the ridge have been swept. Thousands of acres have been burnt on the east side of the township.16
  • 21 Jan 1932, One of the worst bush fires in the memory of the oldest residents occurred here on Friday and Saturday, when a devastating fire swept over the district. On Friday, a fire, which had been burning in the scrub, fanned by a strong north wind, menaced the residence of Mr. McMillan, and in response to a call for help, about 50 men were soon engaged in a fierce fight to save the house and outbuildings. This they managed to do, and the fire then jumped the main road and threatened the residence of the Misses McLean; a break was burned, and the house was safe. On Saturday morning another fire commenced near Miss McLean’s boundary fence, and soon the residences of Messrs. Blair, Boker and Gilpin, and a number of others were in danger. A large band of willing workers managed to save the houses, but unfortunately they could not save the fine lemon orchard of Mr. McMillan, which was destroyed, also a week-end residence of Mr. Harkins. The heat was so great when the place got alight that it was im possible to get near it. In the after noon a sudden change of wind to the south caused the township to be menaced, and a desperate call for help was sent out, and in reply volunteers from Berwick, Narre Warren and Dandenong came to augment the local Bush Fire Brigade, until there were over 200 men, under the direction of Constable Barrett, and other leaders, engaged in the desperate effort to save the homes of Madame Montigue, Messrs. McBride, McDonald, Harvey-Smith, Rev. T. Greenwood, Robinson, J. Campbell, Major Campbell, Miss Elliott, J. Deville, C. Ellis, Claydon, Wright, Binding and Brown. The worst fight was at “Kyogle,” Mr. McDonald’s house; at one time it was felt that this fine residence would go, but the determined fight put up by the willing workers saved it. Here it was that anxiety was felt for one band who had become surrounded by flames, but they managed to get clear, although some of them succumbed to heat and smoke after getting out. The fine garden and plantation of Major Campbell was swept by the fire, despite the efforts of the workers, and hundreds of pounds worth of valuable plants and trees were destroyed, and the fine house was only saved by the superhuman efforts of the fire fighters. Miss Elliott’s house got alight, and part of the roof had to be stripped off before the fire could be put out. Mr. Ellis had the fence and pavilion attached to his tennis court destroyed, and the fire swept through his orchard, only being stopped within a few feet of the house. The house of Mr. Wright was saved by burning a break, as was Mr. Brown’s house and lemon orchard.
    On Sunday afternoon a small fire developed in Salisbury Gully, but it was soon got under control; whilst this was being put out an urgent call for help came from “The Towers,” Mr. Berglund’s property. A large body of men were rushed out, and the fire was got under control before very much damage was done. On Sunday a fire, which had started on the Saturday in Cordner’s Gully, crossed the Officer rd., and threatened the orchard of Mr. F. Love, but it was kept out, and, with the exception of the loss of some fencing, not very much damage was done.17
  • 10 Feb 1936, TOWN MENACED BY FIRE TWO HUNDRED FIGHT FLAMES BEACONSFIELD UPPER OUTBREAK
    BEACONSFIELD UPPER Sunday - A bush fire menaced the township of Beaconsfield yesterday, but 200 fighters checked the spread of the flames and a heavy downpour of rain virtually extinguished the fire which was the most serious one. In the district this summer.
    Had it not been for the good work of the bush fire brigade assisted by volunteers, considerable loss of property might have occurred.
    The fire began on Friday in the gully below Mr McMillan's house on the main road from Beaconsfield to Beaconsfield Upper. A south east wind carried the fire up a gully to the back of the properties of Messrs Wright and Binding. It was checked there by beaters but crosscd the road and damaged the orchard of Mr Walter Brown. The wind dropped in the evening and it was considered that the danger had passed.
    On Saturday morning, however, the south west wind carried the fire up an other gully and only excellent work by the brigade and others saved the houses of Miss Elliot and Lieut Colonel Campbell. The wind was working round toward the township. To prevent that danger the brigade under the direction of the captain (Mr a'Beckett) burnt a break of about three quarters of a mile.18
  • 14 Aug 1943, EDITOR'S POSTBAG: ROBERT BURNS
    Mr T. O. McMillan (Beaconsfield' writes: In an article on the poet Burns in the Weekend Magazine of July 24 it was stated that he wrote in the Highland dialect. Now, just what is this dialect? I should like to know, because, though I lived in Scotland for more than 20 years, I never heard of it. Any poems of Burns that I have read are written in the Ayrshire dialect or in English. I don't think that Burns knew Gaelic, which is the Highland language.19
  • 13 Nov 1945, FLYING OR CREEPING?
    Sir: I was interested in the letter by Erle Cox (6/11/45) about the slow transit of an airmail letter. I had a similar experience lately with an airmail letter that took from September 8 to October 30 to come from Scotland. The postage was 1/3, but for 2½d an ordinary letter took only from August 6 to September 15. An "air letter" (6d). usually takes about 14 days. This is not my only experience, and I am curious to know how it can be explained.
    -T. O. MCMILLAN (Beaconsfield).20
