VALUABLE RELIC. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 1 March 1918

VALUABLE RELIC.   "Not much of a place ! You don't seem to have any murder spots," said a jocular member of a party of tour- ists to a native guide. "In the last village we stopped at, now, they showed us a place where a man had lain in wait for his sweetheart and her four sisters, and murdered them one after another with a fiendish gusto." The guide had really never heard of   this remarkable crime, but his pro- fessional jealousy was aroused.     "That is quite true, sir," he un-   blashingly bore witnes ; "but you perhaps, are not aware that the mur-   derer afterwards made his escape in         this direction, and you are now stand-         ing on the very spot where he threw   away the bloodstained gusto with which he committed the fearful   dead !"

The Committee's best thanks are due to Mr Frank Page for supplying and erecting the tables; to Mr T. Wilson for providing and carting fire wood; and to Miss Mary Muir (the Hon.

CRICKET. DIAMOND CREEK V. ELTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 8 March 1918

CRICKET. -----0------ DIAMOND CREEK V. ELTHAM. On Saturday last Eltham visited Diamond Creek to play the return match. Eltham, winning the toss, elected to bat. Two wickets had fallen for 12 runs when R. Norman partnered C. Overman (who, though a junior, was playing in quite senior form). These two put on 33 for the third wicket, which fell for 45-----Norman being run out for a well made 16. Overman continued to bat well, and when, after an hour, rain stopped play, had made 18 not out, including a very nice hit for 4 ------the total being 53 for five wickets. After 40 minutes cessation of play it was decided to give Diamond Creek a turn with the bat, although it was recognised that conditions were now much against the fielding team-----the bowlers being unable to get a footing. A. Bedford 13 not out, and G. Middleton 17 not out, made their runs In about 20 minutes, each hitting two fourers, when rain again set in, making further play impossible. Scores : ------ELTHAM------- &amp...
