The Escaped Prisoner Ellis NO TRACE OF HIS WHERE ABOUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 21 May 1909

The Escaped Prisoner Ellis NO TRACE OF HIS WHERE ABOUTS. Though the most diligent search has been made, not the slightest trace has   been found of Robt. Charles Ellis, the prisoner who escaped from Constable Morey on 6th inst. while being escorted by train to Melbourne from Healesville in company with his brother James Ellis. Both prisoners were committed for trial by the Healesville bench on a charge of cattle stealing, and it was while the train was slowing down into the Mont Albert station that Robt. Ellis escaped. The facts, correctly stated, are as follows : The constable, the two prisoners and a civilian who was well-known to the con stable were seated together in one com partment in which there were no other passengers. The prisoners were hand cuffed together. Robt. Ellis asked per mission to go to the lavatory, and the constable releasing him, left James Ellis, securely handcuffed, in the custody of the civilian while he went to the lavatory with Robert.

Headache, Indigestion, Constipation and Biliousness. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 May 1909

Headache, Indigestion, Constipation and Biliousness. -o The immense number of orders for. Frootoids. sent by post direct to the Pro-. prietor, is convincing proof that the Public appreciate their splendid curing power over the above.named complaints. Frootolds are elegant in appearance and pleasant to take: they are immninsely more valuable than an ordinary aperienti` they remove from the 1ir..,d, tissues, and. internal organs, waste poisonous matter that is clogging them and choking: the channels that lead to and from them. " The beneficial effects of Frootoids are evident by the disappearance of headache, a bright, cheery sense of perfect healthl taking the place of sluggish, dcpressedl! feelings, by the liver acting properly, and by the food being properly digested. Frootoids are the proper aperient liedi cine to take when any Congestion or Blood Poison is present, or when Conges tion of the Brain or Appoplexy is present. or threatening.

Alexander & Yea Standard NEC TEMERE NEC TIMIDE. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, MAY 28, 1909. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 May 1909

gtixandra & Ya %tandaqd NEC TEMERE NEC TIMIDE PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY. MAY 28, 1909. Tna news that the Broken Hill strike has at length come to an end is extremely gratifying by reason. of the number of men out of work on the field.' It is a serious position for a workman who may have a wife and several children dependent upon him for food, to be out of work for a protracted period. Why the strike originated is now common history, and there is no need to re-open it, but it is worthy of note that it has been one of the largest strikes in the Common wealth up to the present day; and although the men were virtually victors on the award given, they .were practi cally at the mercy of the mine-owners. The question of a living wage must always be considered i ,conjunction with the average wage ini 'milar works and with the ability of the business to pay the wage demanded. The termination of the strike is plainly attributable to one thing, namely, necessity. A great many such...

Correspondence. ! [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents]. NEW ROAD TO THE RAILWAY STATION.. To TH i ~OR or THE WAr??,AW· a Sla,-Why all this fuss over the pro nosed newrond. But, I suppose it can be accounted for when it o4 understood that those making the greatest noise are doing so purely on personal grounds. Some make it appear evident fluat they are paid agents in the agitation, for most certainly they have no interest either'one way or the other. I say, if this short bit of a road is not going to, cost ?too much, build it. It will be a straight drive to and from the town, a much nearer walk or drive to the station, and will open up the park, whiclr at' the pre sent time has very bad atpproaches ad virtually closed to the public from ilil sides. As to the cry of destroying the.. park, this is all moonshine. It will open up, the bald patch and enable people to enjoy a quiet hour or two-not in the shade though, or on comfortable sea...

EMPIRE DAY.j AT ALEXANDRA. The celebration of, Empire Day was most successfully carried at the Alexandra State school, when the scholars went through the rogramme drawn up by the Education Department, without a hitch and with credit to their instructor, and themselves. A number of patriotic sonias were sung by the scholars, under the able tuition of Miss Lihon.

THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 May 1909

THE CONCER;T. In the evening a patriotic concert was hold in the shire hall. It was the first concert held in Aloxandra in connection with Empire Day celebrations, and there is no doubt that this year would have been the same as others had it not been for the forethought and energy of the Rev. J. A. Peck, who has come amongst us since last Empire Day. This gentle man was well repaid' for the time and trouble taken in arranging this enter tainment, for when the first item was announced there was only standing room left for late arrivals. The programme was first-class, and the patriotic songs Ware retdered with vigoti ind'entiiaisiatim; whilst the large audionce joined in the chortises. It was a free and easy enter tainment thoroughly enjoyed by all. The Rev. A. Macdonald acted as chair man. The concert was comumenced with the singing of God Save the King by all, after which the State school ahildren, arranged on the stase, sang very nicely Red, White and Blue, and reflected credit on...

AT MARYSVILLE. Empire Day was celebroted at Marys ville by the combined schools of Buxton, Narbethong and Marysville, and proved a great success. The Buxton children were kindly driven to Marysvillo by Mr Jchn Nichols, and Mr Yates, jar., piloted the Narbethong contingent. Arriving at the school no time was lost in preparing for the programme ahead, and at 2 o'clock a concert was given by the combined schools, which was gone into with great zest by all the youngsters. M1r T. Barton, J.P., occupied the chair, and was supported by Mr D. P'Intyre and other members of the Board of Advice. A lenghty pro gramme was concluded by the singing of the National Anthem, after which refresh mInts were partaken of. An adjoirri ment was made to the sports ground, where all had a good time. Mr M'Intyre appealed as Father Christmas at 4 o'clock with bags of sweets sewn over him, head and body, and a great rush by the school children big and small soon stripiped head and body, and. needless to say, he...

Roman Catholic Concert at Yarck. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 May 1909

Roman Catholic Concert at Yarck. The holding of the above concert on Empire Day was highly appreciated, on Monday last, when the local hall was packed with a most orderly and enthusiastic audience. In fact, the building was not large enough to seat the people, consequently many were turned away. By 7.30 p m. the hall was three parts full, and by 8 o'clock there was not standing room. Never before has there been so large a sale of tickets for an entertainment of this kind, therefore it was not surprising to find such a rush for seats. This is due to the energetic secretary, Mr. A. E. Gough, who has given a deal of time the past few weeks in furthering the object, viz., the raising of funds for the Yarck R.C. Church. That this gentleman has succeeded there is not a shadow of doubt, and therefore is deserving of the highest thanks, not only from the members of his own denomination for the manner in which he has worked up the concert and ball, but from those outside the church for the e...
