WHERE HOLBEIN WAS BURIED [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 March 1914

WHERE 1IOI-BEIN" WAS BURIED - St. Kathorine Cree Church, the 284th anniversary of whose consecration by Laud Is being celebrated this week (says "The Westminster Gazette"., of January I6)"ls known better than many of the city churches, not by reason o£ its antiquarian associations, but 'more probably because of its situation in ono of the busiest streets in London— licadenhail street.- It is probably not of very general interest to know that St. ICatherine's, although a pre-flre church, is not in its present state one of the real old churches of medlssval times. It dates from the year 1631, and Inigo Jones is credited with the design. Some of the guide-books state this defi nitely; but Baedeker is more cautious in saying that the interior is "ascribed" to the. famous forerunner of Wren. The lower portion of the tower is a remnant of the older church that stood on the site, and It was in this building that Holbein Is said to have been buried.

The Night"s Concert. There'was a splendid atten dance at the concert held last night in the Star Theatre. The programme, in the preparation of which Miss Alice Madigan inr ^erested "herself very grt/atly, was a high-class one. There was hot one item in it that fell ;below the standard.

It has leis urely footpaths, far from the call of motor horns, which range woods where in an hours' walk one may meet none but a few natives about their woodland affairs. But at present a lot of It, Instead of resembling more secluded England, .looks like nothing so much as a Can adian lumber camp. The saunterer who happens upon It could think him self not two miles only from Croydon High-street, but among the pioneers who are clearing the wilderness. No less than four square" miles of old woodland is being felled. A STROLL INTO CANADA Out of West Wickham Station a "Daily News" rambler found noth ing but a land containing scat tered Inns, farms, rooks, and, of course, some concentrated golfers. All else ...

THE SALVATION ARMY. CONCERT AND COFFEE. In continuation of the Sunday services a "grand concert and cplTee social" was held in the Salvation Army hall on Monday night and was remarkably well attended. The attraction of the evening was the part taken by the little people in the pro gramme. Brigadier M'Kenzie, of Bendigo, wlm practically had charge of the meeting; ,is a 'great gun' amongst tin* young folks, and his running; lire of comment was a sort of connecting chain between the items which served to fill up gaps that might other wise have become wearisome. The brigadier, dealing with the programme, drew attention to the fact that the prograinmeope ned with the full chorus "Rise a. Little Early in the Morning," and closed with thefull chorus 'Wake up/Australia." This, he read as an indication that the new lassie officers intended to -'shake up inings" in Shepparton.

Grand Meanan Island. \Vhich lies to the port hand of a- vessel entering the bay, is one rocky graveyard—on the reef to the south-east an impaled ship is a common sight.
