Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

Yes­ter­day was an ex­cep­tion­ally busy day at the rail­way sta­tion, no fewer than five ex­cur­sion trains ar­riv­ing. Of these, three were from Char­ters Tow­ers, car­ry­ing 1000 pas­sen­gers, one from Ravenswood with 250 and the fifth from Ayr with 750 – a to­tal of 2000. The Wol­lowra on her last trip brought from south an oil trac­tion en­gine weigh­ing 12 tons, which was landed on the jetty un­der the big crane on Fri­day. The trac­tor which is con­signed to Bart­lams Ltd., is for Messrs F. G. White and Co, at Lerida sta­tion, and is un­der­stood to be the largest of the kind landed here. The school of in­struc­tion in phys­i­cal ex­er­cise for State school teach­ers, which has been con­ducted by Lieu­tenant Rud­dle at Mag­netic Is­land dur­ing the past fort­night, con­cluded on Satur­day, when over 30 male teach­ers who had been tak­ing part re­turned to town on their way back to their re­spec­tive homes.
