SCHULTZ'S BRIDGE DEATH TRAP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 May 1923
SCHULTZ'S BRIDGE DEATH TRAP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER Sir,-In your condensed report of last. Eltham Shire Council meeting Cr Hewitt, when the question of rebuild ing Schultz's bridge was under dis cussion, is reported as stating "that corner is always asking for more." By that corner was obviously meant Ar thur's Creek and Strathewen districts, and meant to convey the impression that these districts are claiming more than they are justly entitled to. That corner, as Cr' Hewitt chooses to term it, is closely settled, and even with its present bad roads and rotten bridges produces more and better fruit, crops, vegetables, and 'live stock yearly. In winter time the roads in these districts are one long course of deep heavy mud and slush, and in summer time one long course of blinding, choking dust. Yet, although the ratepayers pay a rate of 2s 6d in the £, and cheap material of a permanent nature in the shape of gravel for road repairing is inexhaustive" all along the road side ...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If the inside edge of a saucepan is rubbed with margarine or lard, the contents will not boil over. Gas mantles will last much longer if, before using, this simple precau tion is followed. Take a hatpin and place it through the loop at the top of the mantle. Then- immerse the mantle in enough vinegar to cover it. Place over a glass until dry, and then put on the gas-burner in the usual way. Use a small flannel bag with one end open as a receptacle for scraps of toilet soap. When a few have ac cumulated sew up the opening, and an e~c:ilent bath bag is the result. In many households they are either thrown away or used down to such small pieces that they slip down the waste pipe and help to form a coat ing which in time will choke up the pipe. If new tinware is rubbed over with lard and thoroughly heated in the oven before it is used, it will not rust afterwards. A stocking wort always on the same foot wears out far quicker than if changed from mn to the other each tim...

Christmas Hills. YE OLDE BUNYIPE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
Christmas M, Ills. YE OLDE BUNYIPB. (PROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) No longer do people living at Glrist= mas Hills greet one another. in the usual way when they meet, but now -after cautiously looking around for fear of that mysterious "something" which has been in the air-they just say, "Have you seen the bunyip?" It is a case of bunyip here, bunyip tliere and bunyip everywhere just now. And one may well ask: "Who, what and where is this mysterious creature; does it really exist in flesh and blood, or is it merely the offspring of over imaginative temperaments?" All one can say is, if it has no ma terial body, well, then, it certainly possesses a very material voice, and those who have -heard it are not de sirous of doing so again; for the great piercing. screams, succeeded by chok ing, throttling moans, are not pleasant to hear on a dark night. That it has a material existence there can be no manner of doubt, and that it is usually heard within the vicinity of either swamps or waterhole...
GREENSBOROUGH v. DIAMOND CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
GREENSBOROUGH v. DIAMOND CREEK. What was expected to be a good game of football at Greensborough on Saturday last ended in a scramble, owing to a strong wind and an in efficient umpire. Both teams were strongly represented. Hodgson led the 'Borough, and R. Wadeson the Creek, and the latter kicked towards the town goal. G. Herbert for warded, but J. Godwell got a free kick and sent to Oakley, who was fouled. Whicker stopped the rush for goal, and played smartly to T. Huntly, who got the first goal. Pur cell to C. Godwell; sent well forward, but R. Wright got a free kick, and played to Middleton, who got the second goal. Purcell was doing good work, when Splatt, with a good run, sent the ball well forward, but a free kick to Edmonds turned the leather again. The first quarter ended: Diamond Creek, 2.0, to 'Borough, 0.1. The second quarter saw some very unpleasant football. There were no "beg pardons," and after two minutes' play the umpire lost all control of the game. Elbows were ver...

ELTHAM v. KANGAROO GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
ELTHAM v. KANGAROO GROUND. This match was played under ad verse conditions, both as regards the umpire and the weather. The first named spoilt a good game by his erratic decisions, while the high wind affected the game throughout. It was a well-fought game, and until the final few minutes the verdict was in doubt. It was played in a fine spirit, hard knocks being given and taken. Kangaroo Ground prevailed in the first quarter, and raised two flags to three behinds. Half-time found El tham two points in the lead. The struggle continued until near the fin ish, when two goals (one very lucky) put the issue out of doubt. Eltham ran ouf winners by 4.11 to 2 goals. They were best served by Parsons, Jarrold, M. Gillett, and J. Hill. Kangaroo Ground's team showed great improvement, and pleased their supporters. The inclusion of Bolton (half-back) made tons of difference, as he proved a veritable stone wall. He was ably assisted by Trim, Young, Muir, Wraights (2), and otl}ers, while the vete...

A "Bona Fide" Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
A "Bona Fide" Traveller. "I had a real feed of sausages," said a man in the Eltham court on Tuesday, when explaining to the P.M. how he came to be on licensed prem ises on a Sunday evening. His evi dence consisted chiefly in telling how he and a friend arrived at the War raudyte hotel at S.30 p.m. on a Sun day, and knowing the house he march ed into the kitchen, espied a yard of sansages and prepared for a meal. He said they had been at the shak in the country, but there was only a bunk there and nothing to eat, to which the P.M. sympathetically re plied: "That was unfortunate." The P.M. asked what his friend had for tea, and he said he did' not know. "Now come," encouragingly asked the P.M., "when your friend was sitting beside you, did he not have some sausages also ?" He denied all know ledge of what his friend had, and even said he (witness) did not sit at the table, but sat on it. Then the Inspec tor asked what he was doing while the sausages were being fried, to which he did n...
