The Train Fares. MEETING IN FAIRFIELD. A large and representative meet ing of ratepayers and those using the trains was held in the Fairfield Hall on Friday evening last. Cr. May, in the absence of the Shire President (Cr. Keam), presid ed, and pointed out the injustice that had been done to the people by the increased fares, Fairfield being speci ally singled out. Mr. B. Street said the meeting had been called as a result of consulta tion with the committees of the P.L.C. and Progress Association. A good deal of indignation had been aroused owing to the unfair treat ment to Fairfield. Ninety per cent. of the people of the Shire of Heidel berg are wage-earners, and before a man can get to town he has to pay an increased fare. The line is a pay ing one, and why should more be asked for? The traffic from Fairfield station is equal to any other two sta tionis below it. The fares have now been raised 45 and 50 per cent.

JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 14 July 1917

JOTTINGS. " If: you want the dirty , ater in` the barrel to settle leave.: it alone". No amount of stirring will clean a ?cask. There are various kinds': of.Idols. One curio collec tor; has a` Chinese God made of wood marked "Chinese idol," and a gold coin :alongside marked 'Christian idol." If you -cannot staiid disappoint ment, then for airy sake do not be a politician; nor a business man, nor a scientist, nor a minis ter, nor in fact anything. In fact, leave the .adventure of life' se verely alone. I think scolding is somewhat of an admission of failure. It sa vours of slapping a'baby.

What Follows the War. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 14 July 1917

'What Follows the War. We are living to-day in the period of the revival of the old Roman Empire. This ran along the north c ast of Africa to the river Eu phrates, back through Syria, up by Turkey and the south side of the Danube, by Belgium, England and part of Scotland (leaving out Ire land), France, Spain, Portugal and Italy (including Switzerland). It did not include Germany, Austria, or Russia. Germany will therefore have to give back to France all she took in 1870-Bavaria, Baden, Wir temburg, Rhenish Prussia, Alsace Lorraine, Metz, Strasburg; Aus tria will yield all south of the river Danube, so that the Roman Empire will be as it was in the days of A ugustus Caesar. All these nations will have between them ten kings, sooner or later, after the war. The Secretary of State for Foreign Af fairs at Babylon 2,520 years ago de clared that these European king domns must be federated. The. Bri tish Foreign Secretary virtually de clared the same thing a few months ago. The Lord Jesus ...

PRISONERS OF WAR. The Prisoners of War Branch of the British Red Cross Society costs.i about £1000 a day. Thus a gift of that sum will keep this arduous branch of Red Cross- work for 2-i hours, and thus bring relief to many sufferers who are in enemy hands. The new scheme for the relief of prisoners' of war is now fully work ing. Among many activities, a bureau for the supply of bread to the. pri soners in Germany has been opeiied in Copenhagen, valuable help being given by the Danish authorities and by the British Legation. Three suc cessive parties of prisoners' relations have visited them in. Switzerland, and the despatch of food and necessary. clothing to all places where our pri soners are, in captivity is constantly increasing. In one fortnight.re cently 3290 parcels were sent away: to Germany and Bulgaria alone. The notes and postcards which coine fre quently from .the recipients, give, ample proof-. of their dire need, and pleasure not only at receiving the food and clothing...

FAREWELL AT HEIDELBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 14 July 1917

FAREWELL AT HEIDELBERG. A very pleasant little function took place on Wednesday afternoon, June 27, at the home of Mrs Pocock, the Heights, Heidelberg. A few. ladies have been meeting once a fortnight for some months for Bible study, and on this oc casion the members took the opportu nity of tendering Mrs Meyer, of " Con cordia," Bolden-street, an impromptu social and afternoon tea, and presenting her with a very pretty full China tea service as a token and farewell gift on the eve of her departure from the dis trict. Mrs Pocock made the presenta tion, and in a few well chosen remarks spoke of Mrs Meyer's work in the church for the mission cause, patriotic and Red Cross work, how quietly and unostentatiously and withal so efficiently she worked, and always accomplishing something. When she spoke of how she would be missed and how hard it would be to fill her place, tears were very near the surface in many eyes, but the speak er saved the situation by comically re marking that Mrs Me...
