Arthur's Creek. EMPIRE DAY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT) A very pleasant afternoon was spent at the Arthur's Creek Sunday school on Empire Day by the parents and friends of the scholars.

Mernda. EMPIRE DAY. At S.S. 488, 'Mernda, Empire Day was observed on the 24th inst in 'the usual manner by 'the teachers and scholars, Cr. Thomas (chairman and correspondent) being also present. During the morning suitaldle songs were sung, and Mr. R. W. Kiernan (head teacher) addressed the children, and gave some good sound advice, also inculcating the necessity of their growing up good and loyal subjects. He pointed out the peace and comfort in which we lived in Australia com pared with the turmoil in other coun tries. He earnestly advised the ehil drem at all times to be loyal to their -country, to their parents and to them selves. After singing a true Australian song, he called upon Cr. Thomas to address them. This gentleman prefaced his remarks by taking the children in their mind's eye away back to the year 1854, when he was a boy wearing a tartah juniper, travelling across the paddocks to the very same school ground as S.S. 488 was built on, the school then being held where M...

MUNICIPAL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 June 1923
MUNICIPAL MATTERS. Sir,-In your report of the last meeting of the Eltham Shire Coun cil, a matter of a disquieting nature is the fact that, in spite of a high rate, there is again an overdraft. People may well wonder where the ,poney is going to. Schultz's Bridge needs renewing, and the Cherry Tree road urgently requires attention, and -while the President says the riding has not a "bean" with which to do the work, Crs. White and Campbell can get money to spend on a back road to the river. While referring to this particular road to the river, it might be pertinent to ask what has become of the £20 offered to the council as an inducement to do the work? Are the councillors who are responsible taking the necessary ac tion to induce those who promised this money to honor their bond? If councillors spend any rate money on this job before they collect every shilling of that £20 , they will not be true to their trust, and ratepayers throughout the shire are not likely to regard the matter...

During one of the intervals, Mr. George Muir (who, with his family, has recently returned from England) said that the members of the Cricket Club desired to thank Mr. Frank Page, of "High Sunderland," for his generosity in allowing the Club to have their pitch on his land during the past season, and also for the very keen and practical interest he had taken in the matches, and he (Mr. Muir) asked Mr. Page to accept, on behalf of the Club, a small token of their appreciation (a handsome briar-wood pipe).

It must be men tioned that the sports prizes con sisted of money, which had been given by kind friends for that pun pose. Mr. T. Albert, of Yarra Glen, gave a very welcome donation to wards this fund, and the rest was from people on the Hills. After te...

S O S FOR THE DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 June 1923
S 0 S FOR THE DOCTOR. A woman sat rocking her baby one Saturday at sundown in the steam ship Venetian, homeward bound in the Bay of Biscay, from Alexandril. For a week past she had nursed der dying child, and there was no doctor on board. The grey outline of a man-of-war appeared in the distance, and a wire less message was sent asking for helm. The war vessel flashed back a reply. The Venetian stopped, the war vessel drew to within a quarter of a mile, and in spite of the heavy swell a lifeboat put out to her. Passengers on the Venetian watched their progress breathlessly as the lit tle boat swung up and down in the trough of the sea. At length the side of the Venetian was reached, and the man whose help was so sorely needed mounted a rope ladder prepared for him. The baby's life was saved. The name of the baby was Elizabeth. The name of the warship was the Queen Elizabeth. Some time ago James Arthur, a fireman of the Canadian Pacific liner Monmouth, was attacked in mid ocean with ...

Panton ;Hill. ORETONNE BALL. (FROM OUR CORRESPOONDENT). A most successful entertainment was held at Panton Hill last Friday, when the much-discussed "cretonne": ball took place in the local hall.

The hall was most tastefully decorated with orange and black streamers, festoons of green ery, Chinese lanterns and mural ornaments of flowers. The stage was massed .with greenery and flowers, amongst which the gor geous Protea melliflora was con- 3 spicuous. The dresses worn by the ladies displayed much aesthetic taste, and harmonised excellently with the decorations, while the old gold shades on the lights mellowed the 1 scene in a pleasing manner. The judges had a difficult task in deciding upon the most effective dress, but finally awarded the prize to Miss WVinnie Moore. The dress of Mrs. Scarce was so pleasing that a sp...
