THE CONTRIBUTOR. BOTH SIDES OF THE WALL [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 10 April 1889

THE CONTRIBUTOR. BOTH SIDES OF THE WALL [BT THE MAN on TOP.] "Even as wohaveno twilightin Australin, so have we no Autumn. There is scarcely any demanreation between the torrid heat df our Austral summers, and the cold, storm, and rain with which our winter io heralded. A notable illustration has been afforded during the Imst few days. On Friday heat and summer coats; on Mon day cutting winds, blinding showers, and macintoshes. But the rains bring forth good to the dwellers in crowded cities. This weather portends ciheapness In prices of the necessary commodities of life, and is therefore welcome. The poet Chaucer, writing in the fifteenth century, prolably was not aware how well adapted his pastoral odes would be to this land, then unknown, when he sang : When that April is, with his showers swoon, The droughtotf March bhth pierced to the root. The solemn farce of calling Parliament together some six weeks before the proper time, in order that the payment of mem bers may commence f...

ANOTHER DISGRACEFUL STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 10 April 1889

ANOTHER DISGRACEFUL STItEET. Sir,-I beg, through the medium of your valuable paper, to draw the attention of the council authorities to the disgmerefult state of some of the footpaths in one of the manoy populous streets of that model suburban retreat of South Yarra, viE., Karlsberg-road. I had occasion the other evening, after nightfall, to visit the said street, and received such a shock to my nervous system, that unless I shortly re cover, I very probably will have an action against the council. Just imagine when walking along quietly on the footpath, the ground gives way beneath you, and down yougosome twoor three feet intoaquagmllire. Such was my misfortune, and a pretty plight I was in when I dragged myself out. I consider such ia state of things a disgrace, and should be seen to at once e; for should somen poor unfortunate youngster get into it, and no aid at hand, it would be a fatal naciudent. Yours, etc., PEDESTRIAN. 5th tMarch, 1889. [Where's Brown ?-El.]

Sir,-I was glad to otberve a paragraph in your Satunlay's issue giving a denial to, the statement that poor George Hole was intoxicated when he met with thie fatal accident on clection night. There are at least half-a-dozon l.lmding 'rahnhmn citizens, including his Wolship the Mayor, who would make a statutory declaration to the effect that deceased was perfectly sober, if that were necessary. I have, as an old resident of Fr'hmun, known deceased for many years. Ile was born at Tavistock, Devonshire, England, on March 8th, I817, and arrived in this colony about 1859. Coming to P'ihmi n in the first place, he removed to North Melbourne for a few years, but finally settled down in Buedigo street, P'rahran, abouet 25 yeaws ago, where he resided up to the time of his death. Deceased was a wool-comber by trade. IIe has left a widow with one danghter, and by his death one of the old landmarks of Prah ran has been removed from our mnidst. l...
