The Yarra Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 April 1923
The Yarra Valley. The "Bulletin " contains the fol lowing interesting item ; Importer Norman Jack, who has a beautiful week-endery at Christmas Hill, dwells on the spot which gave its name to the range district bounding the Yarra Valley on the west. The late squatter Ffrench, Mrs Robert Power's dad, built the original house on this hill when he sought a change from the tameness of his Portland holdings; but before that a stockman named Christmas had humped there. It was open range country in those days, and cattle-duffing was rife. Even to-day the red-box posts of a duffing-yard still stand near the " butterman'. track," over which a sturdy battler (one Herbert, whose descendants still farm in the Yarra flats) used to pack butter to the dig gings at rich One Tree Hill and Queenstown. Nor-man Jack now has a duck-farm on his lovely range crest, where aforetime wild steers hustled for a living among the tall timber. One of the few genuine fragments of the original Blarney Stone is em b...

Literally a whole county, Lanca shire, and parts of Cheshire and Der byshire, are occupied in this vast business, yet there is not' a pound of raw cotton grown in England. It is all imported. The great cotton port is Liverpool, and Manchester is the centre of the .trade. It is sometimes a source of won der that Lancashire should have dc veioped this vast buplness alone.

The fact is that the na.:.ofd atmosphere of the county is its greatest asset, for if the rainfall of Lancashire were suddenly...

CGHRAlCTER BY THE NOSE. Nasczraphy reveals the character, habits and inclinaticns of people by a simple inspection of noses. Accor ding to exponents, of the system, the nose scho:ld be as long as possible, as th is a signr of merit, Dower and genius. Examples---Napoleon and Caesar, both of whom had l rge ncses. A straight nbse denotes a just, serious and energetic . mind ; the Roman nose a propensity for ad venture, and a wide nose with open nostrils is a mark of great sensuali ty. A cleft nose shows benevolence- it was the nose of St. Vincent de Paul. The curved, fleshy nose is a mark of dominition and cruelty. Catherine de Melici and Tlizabeth of England .had noses of this kind. The curved,, thin nose, on the contrary, is a mark of a brillicnt -nind,- but-vain and:dis posed to be ironical ; it is the nose of a drcaner, a poet, or a critic. If the line of the nose is reentrant that is, if the nose is turned up-it denot,: that its owner has a weak mind--somctimes coarse, and gener a...
