Short Story. A Young Man's Strange Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900
Short Story. A Young Man's Strange Adventure. "-0- " Mlatrimony.-A gentleman, 23 years of age, with an income of £750, wishes to it;ke the acquaintance of a young lady with a view to imatrimony.-Ad dress, X. Y. Z., the lttices of this paper." So ran the advertisiement which Jack sent to a London daily seven years ago, when he ant I vwere at college. Jack did not want a wife at the time ; even if he had wished to put his head in the nmatrinmonial noose, lie certainly would not have adopted that method. No; it must be confessed that he was of an inquisitive turn of mind, and, in order to satiate his curiosity, lie often an swered suspiciouus-looking advertisc metls. At last lie decided to advertise on his own account, and the above advertise mlent was the result of much careful consideration. The age given was quite correct, but the £750 a year was a base fabrication. As a matter of fact his income was just what his father chose peared genuine, but thie uiajority men tioned a trilling...
The Sketcher. Little Dolly Dimple. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900
The Sketcher. Little Dolly Dimple. There was only one chair vacant in a bdrber's shop the other-day when- a tall young man, accompanied by a lady and a lovely little girl of 5, cntered, hhd called the head barber to one side gave him a few explicit directions. Then'the little girl's hat was -remdved, and the barber enveloped her in one of the-big white aprons. The young man lifted her up into the barber's chair with a whispered word of reassurance, and the lady, iifter kissing her, passed her hands ~iaressingly over all the beautiful golden brown cuirls. Then she sat down in a 'corner where the child could -not see her face, and pulled out her pocket-handk-erchief. By this time the-occupants of the five other chairs had become vastly in terested. All eyes were - fixed. on the sweet baby face with its curly halo. It was'a tale little face, and there-were no rosebuds on its cheeks,- but above them: were two, glorious gray eyes :that shond like a pair of stars. On each side of the litt...
GENERAL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900
GENERAL INFORIATION. A ge ol camel will travel one hundred milts a day for ten days. The preparation of human hair for the market gives employmelnt to 7,000 Parisians. There is an immense garden in China that embraces an area of 50,000 square miles. It is all meadow land and is tilled with lakes, ponds, and canals. In some parts of New Zealand orange growing is a very profitable industry. Sometimes the crop from an acre of trees amounts in value to more than £200. A dark, gloomy, blue sky denotes wind, but a bright blue sky indicates fine weather. Generally, the softer clouds look, the less wind, but perhaps more rain, may be e.'pected, and the hatder, more "greasy," rolled, tufted or ragged, the stronger the coming wind will prove. Half a lemon makes a good substitute for a bar of toilet soap. and an orange, out in halt and rubbed on a sooty kettle, makes very good shoe-blacking, which takes a fine polish. A new electrical device connects a clock with the kitchen stove, and when th...
A FEDERAL HYMN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900
A FEDERAL. HYM'N. Lord, at whose breath the nations rise, or fall, Look down on ours, we pray, Be Thy right hand our guide when &nbsp; storms appal, In hours serene, our stay; Keep Thou Thy peace within our gates unbarred, Thy star of hope above : Be Thou our watch-tower, and our mighty guard, And seal us with Thy love ! Help us to live so that Thy Face may shine From op'ning path to goal, That we may onward march thro' Light Divine, &nbsp; Till life's last bell shall toll ! Not with the roll of drums that thunder wide, Dominion spreading far, But with the love-bond Thou hast typified In our own Southern Star ! MARION MILLER.
BUXTON. November 12. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
BUXTON, (From our own Correspondent.) November 12. I notice with satisfaction that Mr. W. Nichols has been prevailed upon to contest one of the seats rendered vacant at the council table through the recent resignations. As our end of the shire is at present represented by one councillor only, it is to be hoped that Mr. Nichols will secure a place. The candidate has been a resident of the district for many years, and is well and favorably known throughout the shire, and I feel confident that he would make a good councillor. Mr. R. Scott was also asked by a number of ratepayers to, take part in the con test, but it see.:s that he does not as yet aspire to municipal honors. A meeting of the Buxton Race Club was held at the Buxton Hotel on Saturday last, when it was decided to hold the annual races on Boxing Day next. Mr. W. J. Hay was appointed hon. sea. After making many experiments, Dr. Gresswell, chairman of the Board of Public Health, has found that chlo ride of lime or any mineral...

CR. ROBBINS' SEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
Cit. ROBBINS' SEAT. Mr. Burt said that having repre sented the ratepayers for a term of office at the council table, he would be expected to give an account of his stewardship. He could do that with the greatest of ease and satisfaction to himself, but how they would receive it was another thing. He had repre- t sented them in a very daring way, and at tiln?i t6olk-?anrlarge 'orders, bsit-he I was not supported, and at the tail end t he was beaten, although his conduct was honorable from start to finishi. Those who were opposed to him in the I present contest brought forward the question of poor attendance at the council meetings, but he could say that he had attended 30 meetings out of 36 I during the first portion of his term, t and at the last he thought it was a waste of time to attend, as there was always a majority against him. He kept his seat at the table by attending once every three months, and he did so u so as to not put the ratepayers to any unnecessary expense for an e...
SHIRE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
SIHIRE ELECTIONS. The candidaties nominated for the extraordinary vacancies in the Shire of .ealesvi!le, caused by the resignations of Crs. Matthews and Ruoblins, ad dressed the ratepayers in Daly's Hall on Wednesday evening, MIr. Thos. Crowley being in the chair. The can didates to first speak were contesting On. MATTIIEWS' SEAT, Mr. Burnside said in the first place it was only right to refer to the seat he was contesting, that vacated by Cr. Matthews. That gentleman had proved himself to be a good councillor, and always took great interest in any movement for the benefit of the shire. Ie considered it a double honor to contest that seat ; firstly (if elected), for representing the ratepayers; and secondly, for occupying the seat vacated by Or. Matthews. He (the candidate) had been connected with the. district for about ten years, and dur ing that time had taken an interest in various matters connected with the shire. Some time ago he was asked to stand for the council, but on acco...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
Many business men advertise only ,; certain seasons of the year, lmany prifer ring the fall and early spring. Blit tli ex perience of advertisers who hare utia:le I. subject a study is that persistent advertis ing is the best and returns more profit con sidering the outlay than advertising by fits and starts. It keeps one always before the public in a sense, and the power of a daily or weekly repetition ofan advertisement is inestimable. A French writer says that the first time a person sees an advertise ment he hardly notices it; the second timte, he remembers he has seen it before; the third time, lie reads it ; the fourth tinie he wonders if it meets his wants; and the fifth time, lie buys the article. This, at least, is human nature. A single insertion of an advertisement seldom produces much impression, but let that advertisement be repeated for a month or six months, and satisfactory results generally will follow. People remember that they have seen it before, and gradually th...
