WHERE WERE YOU BORN? SETTLING, ONCE FOR ALL, THE OFT DEBATED POINTS OF A MAN'S NATIONALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918

WHERE WERE YOU BOlRN? SETTBING,. ONCE FOR ALL,. TI{E OFT DEBATED POINTS OF A MAN'S NATIONALTY.. Which country does a man' belong: to? That of his father, or that in. which he was born 7? We known that an Englishwoman who marries a Ger man becomes a German herself, but what of her children, or those of any other German born in this country ? At the present time $ this question is often discussed by people who.. holding opposite opinions on the sub ject.. sometimes express them with: more force than logic. Those persons' whfo bold that you follow the nation alty of your father are" apt to argao on the lines of the old "ceoss talk"' comedian. "Do you mean to tell me? that if'a cat walks into a feG shop. and has kittens, those kittens will: be bloaters ?" he says. The theory, however, In not soc simple as that. For if one is al- ways of his father's nationality, it? follows that the father is of the nat- fonality of his father, and so on inter the remote past, and as. the En-gita. race ...

A CONSTABLES EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918

A CONSTABLES EXPERIENCE.     Constable Warker, of Hurstbridge,                         has just had another experience with a lunatic. From information received he last Monday night proceeded to Pheasant Creek to arrest a man named William Greenwood. On arriving at the place, at about 4 a.m. Tuesday, Greenwood was discovered playing a violin in his garden. The constable succedded without much trouble in     handcuffing him. On going to the house, on opening the door, he saw a string stretched across the opening. As a matter of precaution instead of cutting the string he burnt it through with a match. It was fortunate he did so as he found the string was attached to the trigger of a loaded fully cocked gun pointing direct to the door. Had he attempted to cut the string the chance...

A SUNNY LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918

A SUNNY LAND. ----o---- There's a land, a sunny land. Where all is good and bright ; Where many a man has joined that band, Who came away to fight. They love their good old homeland, They love their dear ones, too ; And that is why they take their stand In the job they've come to do. They tramp through lines of trenches, Mid shot and shell and mud ; And in snow and rain that drenches, For that land they're shed their blood. And when that task is finished, And the world is full of peace, We'll know that we've accomplished Dear Belgium's glad release. That good old land is Aussie, The land we love so well ; And we know it's a good old possy, So we'll go back there to dwell. Pte. B. Pill., 24th M.G.C. 7 / 1 / 18.

DIAMOND VALLEY FRUIT GROWERS' CO OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION, LTD. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918

DIAMOND VALLEY FRUIT GROWERS' CO OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION, LTD. A meeting of shareholders and others interested in the above Society was held in Cottle's Bridge Methodist Church last Saturday evening, but, probably owing to being Eastertide, with so many other engagements, it was not as largely attended as was expected and desired by the promoters. The President (Mr T. W. Rowcroft) gave a brief resume of events that led up to to the decision to form the Asso- ciation, and also briefly stated its objects and expected benefits. The prices at which the various grades and sizes of fruit should be sold were fixed, and those present responded so well that the Manager has, with the addition of a few hundred since pro- raised, nearly 5,000 cases to dispose of ; so that everything points so well to success from the very start that the accommodation promised by Mr Cooke has proved altogether inadequate, and negotiations are in hand for more com- modious quarters at Hurstbridge, and by the time t...
