ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
ALL IN TIIE SA3~I BOAT. 0 Picking up a country paper the other day we came across the following somewhat bitter complaint by aresident of Echuca :--" Is it true that many of the most influential residerts of the town, regardless of the fact that they make their money out of the Echuca people, are in the habit of buying the clothes they wear, and even the food they eat, in Melbourne? That their wives make a practise of visiting the metropolis periodically for the express purpose of securing the latest fashions ? That even the civil servants and rail way em ployees (although many of then: are exempt fr9.t paying municipal taxes) are not content with earning their wages out of the Echuca people, but take advantagea o reduced railway fares and other facilities to make their purchases in Melbourne? If this is true, and I fear it is more than true, how is it possible for Echuca to prosper, when, the people, by their own actions, are starving the cows that give the milk, and killing the go...

LAZY SUMMER DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
LAZY SUJiMiER iDAYS. -o Strange how many people feel lazy in summer. " To.lazy to move, almost," is a common expression at this time of the year, and yet these men and women are not of lazy dispositions. They are lively enough in winter. What is the matter, then ? Why they are vic tims of '' that tired feeling,"' which is brought on Ily the hot weather weaken ing the system. The enervating effects of the hot " muggy," Australian summer are top well known to need describing here, sufficient to say that the violent heat of summer debilitates and weakens the human system entirely if it is not in the most perfect order. Thus it is that people " feel ready to drop " at all hours of the. day without the slightest apparent cause. To avoid this lassitude one thing is necessary, the whole system, and especially the digestive organism nAust be in regular and perfect working order. For this purpose there is no preparation so effective as Bile Beans for Biliousness. Acting in a gentle manner th...

CORRESPONIDENCE. (lIre do not nece.sarily endorse, nor hold ourselves responsible for, the opinions of our correspondents.) TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. SIR,---A number of Democrats wish to make a public recognition of the value of MIr. H. B. Higgins' services in the advocacy of political principles.

A strong committee has been formed in Melbourne to raise a fund, subscrip tions limited to one shilling, to express, in a modest but permanent way, this feeling. Would any of your readers who entertain it send me their name and address on a post card '?-Yours, &c., : H, H. CHAMPION, Hon. Sec. Oxford Chambers, Melbourne.

TOOLANGI. November 28. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
(From our own Correspondent.) November 28. A serious loss by fire befell Mr. W. L-iwrence on Saturday night last, when his house, with its contents, was burned to the groutnd. It appears that as the elder members of the family were retir ing for the night some curtains took fire from a lighted candle, and although great efforts were made to extinguish them it was of no avail, for in a few moments the room was all a blaze. So rapidly did the fire then gain hold that in less than five minutes nothing re mained but a smoldering heap of ashes to show where a comfortable and well kept house had previously stood With the exception of some bedding and a few odds and ends, everything was lost -all that goes to make a well stocked liouse is gone, there being no insurance to help in repairing the misfortune. Mr. Rowe, a friend of the family, who had just arrived that afternoon, also lost part of his clothing and a valuable gold watch and chain. Mr Lawrence in his anxiety to save all he could ...

A Quick-witted Tailor. Some few years before ais death, Poole,ý the tailor, was taking a walk'on the westt pier, Brighton, looking, as he aelwa' did, a! beaming speclanen of .heath, cantent, andj success. A young man, vwho'did not know, perhaps,i -that he was a snob, was also on the piera with a couple of ladies, to whom he said,, as he sa.w Poole coming, "Now, you i wouldn't take that good-looking man for al tailor, but Ihe is. He's an itmpostor. Justt -listen while I take him down a notch or' two. I'll tell hitm my coat, which I have; just had from him, doesn't fit." As he spoke, Poole approached, and: politely acknowledged the salutation of his4 customer, who, walking up' to him, satd,t ' Here, Poole ; now do take a look at me.i Does this coat fit ?" Poole took In the situation, .for he was a good physiognomist, and the countenancee of the ladies betra!ed the plot to him. " It certainly does not fit," said 'he, and, pulling out a bhit of Prench chalk, he proceededf lfberally to m...
Dr. H. Bonar and His Hymns. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Dr. H. Bonar and Iis Hymns. Hs first' hymns were written for his Sab bath school children in the days when, as assistant to the Rev. Dr. Lewis, of South Leith, he wallkI daily frown' his mother's hbouse, down Leith" Walk,, engrossed in his work, and r?rolving plans for increasting its efficiency. Almost overy child in his large, Sabbath school was known to him by name, face, and* 'cirtmnstances. Searching for simple hymns to fasten the truth upon these young minds in direct and easily rememi bered language, and finding few-for the children's paradise of literature was not yet-fhe sat down .to write them. And not only his own children' but all children con tided in him. As it was at Leith in youth, :so it was in his declining years.

The City of Benin. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
The City of Benin. Old Benin is a city stained with blood, and a place of unmentionable fetish cruel ties. It is probable that only some half dozen Europeans have ever been inside it. There are nmay extraordinary tales told about this place, but it is generally be lieved to contain a great wealth of ivory. The natives say that every King of Benin is compelled by the Je-Ju priests to store so mach ivory, which may not be sold, as a propitiation to the wood-devils, whose name is legion. One white trader who had been there assured the writer that he saw solid fances of fine ivory, worth .£1400 a ton. Even allowing.a large margin for im agination, there. is evidently much treasure in Benin. Every kind of horrible cruelty seems prevalent ; human sacrifice is rife, and slaves are buried alive under the foun dations of each new house. At certain sea sons of the year many mutilated, and some tines headless, corpses float down the rivers with the ebb tide--a grim hint of what goes on in the ...
Antiquity of Chess. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Antiquity of Chess. From an article in the " New York Post," we learn from new discoveries in the Egyptian pyramids that the game was known in that wonderfuil land more than, 5000 years ago. North of the pyramid ot ' King ýTetu or Teti two grave chambers have been discovered, erected for two of his high odicials, Kabon and. Mera The chamber of the first is divided into five, and is built of limestone. Its walls are covered with bas-reliefs and pictures of various scenes. The other grave chamber is the most valu able. Twenty-seven of its halls and cor ridors have been uncovered full of beautiful columns. In the chief room there is in a niche a tinted statue of the king, about 7ft. high, with a sacrificial table of alabaster in front. Among the many wall paintings in this and other rooms are hunting and fishing scenes, a group of female mourn ers, the three seasons, Mera and his sons holding each other by the hand, and Mera playing at chess, are visible. King Teta belonged to the sixt...
Queen Victoria as a Child. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Queen Victoria a6 atChild~e. "The English like queens," remarked the old'Duchess of Saxe-Coburg in the month of May, 1819, as she stood on the ter~race 'o the charmiilg country hlium,,?,. of Rosenau, an open letter in her hand. She had just heard of the birth of the little May flower, child of lier daughter, Princess Victoria, whose ma rria ge to the Duke of Kent had taken place during the previous year. The proud grandmother devoted a few moments to looking into the future, then, passing between the great pillara of the marble saloon, she sat down at her table and wrote : "Again a Char lotte; destined, perhaps, to play a great part one day, if a brother be not born to take it out of her hands." An episode which might have had a tragic ending took place immediately be fore her father's death. The cot in the nursery had been placed close to one of the quaint - gothic windows of Wool brook, and in this the future Queen was reposing peacefully, when she was sud denly aroused by a bulle...
An Adventure in the Air. In a Balloon at Night. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
An Adventure in the Air. In a Balloon at Night. Although the modon was obscured by cloudsi as yet above us, the air became drier and clearer. There was a crisp coldness in the atmosphere which fresh ened ,u. A buoyant, -thrilling sense of exultation sprang into life--an exquisite senlse of adventurous mystery. Alone we clove the waves of shadow. No shape or cry of bird betokened the exis tence of animated life, even of the pro per denizens of the air. It was a time to fill the mind with strange fancies. and the ear with wild carolling. There were none to follow us. We punaued, but were unphrsued. Twenty-foutr hours in the air, one turn of the earth upon its axis, that was our task. It was 31. Tissandier's record we meant to beat, and twenty-four hours would achieve the feat. We had an eye to distance, too. The aeronaut named travelled 350 miles; we hoped to do more. We sped through the darkness at a speed of thirty miles an hour, de vouring distance insensibly. There was nothing to ...
