On Saturday, 10th inst., Messrs Smith and Pearce, two inspectors' from the Geelong hatcheries, let go over 400 brown trout in the Mernda stretei of -the Plenty River, under the auspices of the Abbotsford Fish ing Club. The fish were placed in the river in the presence of the four gentlemen named -and two local- resi dents (Messrs H. J. Power and R. W. Kiernan). The club intends, if pos sible, to make the Plenty River one of the best trout streams in the State, and it is to be hoped they will suc ceed in their efforts. The writer can remember in the fifties and sixties the splendid fishing there was in this stretch of the Plenty River, Black fish and trout were numerous, and it seldom took long to make a good. catch. May those days return under the auspices of the Abbotsford Fish ing Club, who deserve every praise for their pluck. A very high compliment, one that parents, pupils and teachers should regard as a great honor, -was paid to the Mernda Sta...

Queenstown. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
Queenstown. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) A very pleasant social gathering took place at Queenstown last Thurs day evening. The occasion was a kitchen- tea tendered to Miss Tilly Miller and organised by MIrs Liddelow. The function toot place in the local school building, kindly decorated and placed at the disposal for the purpose by Miss Liddelow. 'lhe guests all arrived laden with a variety of !kitchen articles that would puzzle the average male to describe or know: how to use. After a few parlour games and a ,guessing competition had been gone through, Mrs Liddelow explained the origin of the gathering, and the vari ous pac':ages were opened up amid much curiosity as to what each con tained. When all were displayed they made quite an imposing array of kitchen requisites. Mrs W. Healey caused much laughter by giving the company a humorous discourse on the use of the many different items. Mr O. ;Muller (father of the guest of the evening) then addressed the assembly, and, on behalf of his...
THE Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser AND Diamond Creek Valley Advocate Published Every Friday Afternoon FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1922. A Change of Proprietorship. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
THE Eltham and Whittlesea Shires &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Advertiser AND Diamond Creek Valley Advocate &nbsp; &nbsp; Published Evey Friday Afternoon FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1922. A Change of Proprietorship. It will be seen from a notice elsewhere that "The Advertiser" &nbsp; &nbsp; has changed hands, but the policy followed by the late Mr R. C. Harris for so many years of de- voting ample space and attention to all matters of district import- ance will be zealously adhered to. The potentialities of the El- &nbsp; tham and Whittlesea districts are so vast that a number of people do not realize them. There are always to be heard the voices of some men who are more pessi- mistic than optimistic, which is bad for anyone at all times. If a district is worth living in it is worth boosting, especially in this area, where there is something worth talking about. Anyone who has seen the notable exhibits from the Whittlesea shire at the Melb...
Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
Local and General. When the Railway Commissioners re- cently visited Hurstbridge the Montmor- ency people placed a big painted board to indicate where they wanted the siding, and people cannot fail to see it. When the line is electrified the people will get what they asked for, and the same applies to a siding for Glen Park—between Eltham and Diamond Creek. Not many people are aware that the aborigines are born white, but such is the case according to Mr A. H. Mattingley, C.M.Y.S., who made the statement at a lecture at Ivanhoe this week. He con- sidered that more consideration should be shown for the welfare of Australia's own people, notwithstanding the White Aus- tralia policy. Mr and. Mrs S. Welham returned to Hurstbridge last week end after a trip to New Zealand. Both appear to be much benefited by their change of climate. At a meeting of the Ivanhoe Horticul- tural Society on Monday evening a letter was read from the Education Department with reference to the Ivanhoe State sch...

NEGLIGENT MOTOR DRIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
NEGLIGENT MOTOR DRIVING. At the Heidelberg Police Court on Mon- day last, Constable Wilckens proceeded against James Alfred Bolton on a charge of negligently driving a motor car on the Heidelberg road on May 27 to the danger of the public. The case arose "out of an accident which occurred on the date men- tioned, when defendant's car ran down and severely injured Catherine Fowler, of Bel- mont Avenue, Malvern. It appeared from the evidence that Miss Fowler was on a visit to the house of Mr Edwards, at Lower Heidelberg road, Ivanhoe, which she left at 9.20 p.m., and was proceeding to the Ivan- hoe railway station on her return journey. Miss Fowler was knocked down and severely injured, her head being cut in two places, and her ears bruised. As a result she was still suffering from the effects. G. E. Furnell, of Ivanhoe, stated that the victim was brought to his house in an un- conscious condition, and was subsequently attended by a doctor, who ordered her re- moval to the hospital. D...

Yarra Glen. PRESBYTERIAN S.S. ANNIVERSARY [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
Yarra Glen. PRESBYTERIAN S. S. ANNIVERSARY On Sunday, 4th June, the anniversary services in connection with the Presby terian Sunday school were held. As usual, the children's service was held in" the ' morning, and was conducted by the Rev.' L. J. Honiball. The day being fine, there was a good attendance, and the children Ssang anniversary hymns very nicely. On Monday evening the children, under the direction of Miss Smedley, gave a very enjoyable concert in the Victoria Hall, when there was a very large attendance. The programme was much appreciated by all, and very great credit is due to Miss Smedley, who worked so hard and trained the children. It is regrettable that people lose sight of the fact that the children of to-day are the church of to morrow, and surely it is wise for anyone to do their best to further the interests of the Sunday school. Especially welcome would anyone with a singing voice have been to help the little ones with their songs, but as help was not forth co...
Correspondence. BOY SCOUTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
Correspondence. BOY SCOUTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER Dear Sir,—I feel it my duty to thank all residents of the district for their much esteemed support in connection with the Boy Scouts movement, and am pleased to be able to say that the venture has met with great success. I must confess that the success or other- wise of the movement depended a great deal on the attitude taken by the parents of those who now constitute the troop. Had they not displayed a spirit of enthusiasm in allowing their sons to enroll the scheme would have obviously been a complete failure. Another point I would bring before the public is the necessity of having a well fitted out troop, as it is no use taking up anything in half measures. Our outfit includes bugles, drums, flags, tents and other equipment, which goes to make an up-to-date troop. At this juncture I desire to thank the Rev. E. S. Chase and the Church of England for the use of the Hall, which makes an admirable drill hall. I wish to exten...
GREENSBOROUGH LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 June 1922
GREENSBOROUGH LAND SALE. Mr. A. A. Haynes conducted the biggest land sale yet held in Greensborough on June 10, and 71 blocks of the Vermont Estate have been disposed of at prices varying from 14s to 21s a foot. There was a good atten- &nbsp; dance and bidding was brisk. 18 blocks in Vermont Parade being sold in five minutes and up to the present £3,500 worth of land has been sold. Many of the buyers were local people, which shows that they have confidence in the township. There are still a few unsold blocks, which can be procured on easy terms. This estate is close to the station, and in view of the early electrifi- cation of the line, which will bring Greens- borough within 30 minutes run of Mel- bourne, and the further possibilities to be derived from the Morwell scheme, persons in search of a country home cannot go wrong in investing a few pounds.
