BUSH AND GRASS FIRES.

SPRINGHURST, Friday.
A large bush fire occurred here yesterday on property belonging to Mr. Slaven, about a mile on the Chiltern side of the railway station. The whole of Mr. Slaven's grass was consumed, and his homestead had a very narrow escape from being burnt. This is the second time this season Mr. Slaven has had his grass burnt, and much sympathy is felt for him.
