PADDY THE SAILOR. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918
PADDY THE SAILOR. Paddy Relly had a notion, For to sail upon the sea ; But he didn't like the motion, "It's no good to me," says he. &nbsp; Then he thought he would be leaving, So he just stepped overboard, Down into the water heaving, But he very quickly roared : &nbsp; "Sind a boat to save me, For I'm drownin' in the sea ; Sure ye know I wouldn't lave ye, &nbsp; But there's something don't agree. For me heart is all a-wallop &nbsp; To be back in Dublin town ; &nbsp; And the cook's a dirty trollop, &nbsp; &nbsp; For me stomach's upside down. And I know mother's callin', &nbsp; For she said I mustn't roam, &nbsp; And although the rain is fallin' &nbsp; Sure I must be goin' home." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; — Kookaburra.

THE CRICKETER'S LAMENT. ----o---- &nbsp; CLUB PARISHES LOOTED. — On Friday night thieves broke into the club premises of the Melbourne Cricket Club and carried away a keg of whisky, 10½ dozen bottles of whisky and a dozen bottles of schnapps. — "Herald," March 23rd. We are gloomy and downhearted, &nbsp; Just depressed by woe and care ; For our spirits have departed, And we know not — know not where. Where, oh, where are our spirits gone ? Why are we all so sad ? Oh, tell me where is the demijohn, Full of the best we had. And a gross of bottles of all the best, For the boys who came to play ; To give a welcome to the guest, And to speed him on his way. Oh where, oh where is the schnapps and gin For the cricketer's kidney pains ; It is filling the void of a strange within The result of a burglar's gains. Oh, tell me where is the keg of bulk, That we used for whisky pegs ; All taken away by the thieves that skulk, The scum of society's dregs. We'd a stock laid in in the...
A LETTER FROM THE BATTLE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918
A LETTER FROM THE BATTLE FRONT. Writing from Belgium under date of 23rd January to his parents at Kangaroo Ground, Private C. T. Harris says :— Well, the first month of this year of victory is practically gone. This last week or more has been quite mild, but the guns on either side are not speaking much. I suppose old Von Hindenburg is getting his reply to Mr. Lloyd George's and President Wilson's war aims ready to shoot from the canon's mouth. Well, he will got shell for shell and a few more thrown in with the boys of the bull- dog breed behind them. Oh, there are no flies on the British Artillery. Perhaps all the nations are war weary, but the Allies now know our true war aims so justly and fairly put both by Mr. Wilson and Mr. Lloyd George, and everybody ought to see Germany in her true light now — spurred on by her late military successes in Russia and her advance in Italy, her mailed fist is clearly revealed in her hanky panky transactions with Russia and her attitude as regard...
THE DIAMOND VALLEY FRUITGROWERS' CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION LTD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 April 1918
THE DIAMOND VALLEY FRUITGROWERS' CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION LTD. &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,— A meeting of the Association was held in the Methodist Church at Cottle's Bridge last Saturday evening, and, con- sidering its importance, was poorly attended. The aims and objects of the Association should now be well known, as they have been before the fruitgrowers for many months past; it is therefore surprising that so few show active interes in it ; for which reason I again, with your kind permission, ask for space to place before your readers further reasons for more support than is being given to this movement. That any fruigrowers should require urging to do that which is so indisputably for their own immediate material benefit can only be explained by the assumption that, for some reason, they have not given careful thought to what associating in this way stands for. I have spoken to prominent agents of Mel- bourne, Sydney, Brisbane, as well as over- seas, of...
