THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

You can talk of Alexander As the leader of our clan, You can talk of Labor Parties And their forty-hour plan ; But I'll tell you of another, And I hope I don't intrude, It's the farmer in the country, Who provides the people's food. You will find that near all babies, If they're dressed in rags or silk, Are brought up, or elevated, On some country district milk ; Older people need some also For their porridge in the morn,   For the taste has been acquired From the time that they were born. Then we all know of the baker, Who brings round the daily bread, Though if 'twas not for th farmer We'd be very seldom fed ; For on him depends the harvest That returns the golden wheat, So though farmer, mill and baker, We get bread enough to eat. Where, then, would you get your porridge If he didn't grow some oats, And the waving fields of barley That are turned to fancey groats,   Then the Labor and all parties     Would be feeling very queer,...

THE Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser AND Diamond Creek Valley Advocate Published Every Friday Morning FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1917. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

THE Eltham and Whittlesea Shire Advertiser AND Diamond Creek Valley Advocate Published Every Friday Morning   FRIDAY, MAY 4. 1917. TO-MORROW (Saturday) the elec- tors of the Commonwealth will be called upon to decide the most momentous question ever placed before them, to say by whom they will be governed in the immediate future — by the National Party or the so-called Labor Party. During the last few weeks the daily and other papers have given great prominence to the question, and both parties have been given every latitude to promulgate their views, but unfortunately so much   bitterness has been infused into the contest, and, worse still, so much falsehood resorted to, that many people are puzzled to know which side they should support. But we are sure, if the matter is calmly and dispassionately con- sidered, the vote of every fair- minded, loyal elector will be cast in favor of the National Party, and our contention will be amply proven by a close exam...

ANZAC DAY AT PANTON HILL. (CONTRIBUTED.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 4 May 1917

ANZAC DAY AT PANTON HILL. (CONTRIBUTED.) This was very fittingly celebrated by an audience which almost filled the local Public Hall, which had been kindly lent by the Hall Committee for this sad but momentous occasion. The stage was draped in mourning, which was intertwined with the Union Jack and surmounted by a beautiful wreath made in memory of our fallen Anzacs. The drapings and wreath were kindly supplied by Misses Rattray and Riley, of "Wharepuke," Panton Hill.   The chair was occupied by Mr R. O. Harris, J P., Chairman and Corres- pondent of the local School Com- mittee. The proceedings started with the singing of "O God, Our Help in Ages Past," and then the Chairman delivered a feeling and striking address on the occasion. It was indeed a trying task for the Chairman to address such a meeting, as he had given his sons to the Empire, but his friends are "legion," and Patton Hill audiences   look to Mr Harris to take the lead on all occasions. Anothe...

NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 11 May 1917

NOUTHING SERIOUS. Mr. 8- had a peculiarly irritating sneeze. It began with a complex and terrifying series of facial convulsions, but instead of concluding with the roar of a shot lion, it ended with a most lame paroxysm that always dis appointed the expectant observer. "Your sneeze," said a friend, after watching him through one of his sternuations. "is a regular circus." "A circus?" said Mr. S-. "Yes, sir," was the rejoinder. "The performance never comes up to the advance notices." That Mr. Lloyd George's readiness of wit is remarkable we all know. It is said that during one of his public speeches he asked the question : "What do our opponents really want ?" "I know what I want," chimed in a member of the audience in a husky voice that told its own tale. "I want a change of Government." "No, you don't," answered Mr. Lloyd George, in a flash ; "what you want is a change of drinks." Dean Hole, who was the pioneer of rose shows, was fond of telling this story : At Cambridge a horticu...

Of these slo were from the certified roll and 87 absentee votes, some from far off electorates in ,SoUt Australia, New.

One striking feature was the preponderance 'of feitale voters, 164 as against 133 oalea; 23 per cent. in favour of the ladiea. Another peculiar feature was hetb.'ldiluted ignorance of the issues .it stake; what the nameson the ballot .pelsa indicated, and also of the euthod of recording their votes, shown 'by several voters.

(Copyright.) CONVICT DAYS. I VIVID AND REALISTIC PICTURES OF THE PAST. I THE EMPTY TREASURY. PART 7. Bramwell at once began his narra tive, telling of his and Gorman's em ployment in the Treasury, and the temptation which had come to them. He glossed over the tragedy at the shanty, making out that Youl had at tacked them and tried to capture them for the reward, after conspiring to rob the Treasury. As to the death of Carey the convict was silent, though he told Gibson about Gorman having sought refuge with the hut keeper. The settler listened without com ment or interruption, and when the fugitive finished Gibson remained pon dering for;eeveral minutes. "I think,' he at length said, "it would not be possible to get away from the Island. If I thought it could be done I would help you.. If you remain in the bush you will be hunted like wild beasts, and in the end be either captured, killed or die of hunger." "What can be done, then?." asked lramwell.
