Panton Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
Panton Hill. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) I very much '-regret having' to re cord the death of Mr Leo Bowen of the Panton Hill Hotel. Some weeks ago the young man contracted influenza, which developed into'pleurcy and pneu monia. The critical stages of these ail ments had been passed through and the patient seemed to be making satis fatory headway, but early on Monday morning he collapsed through heart failure and. passed away before medical attendance could be secured. Mr Bowen, who was only 27 years of age, had been in charge of the Panton Hill Hotel for about seven months; but even this short residence amongst us had shown that he was a man of upright character, quiet, unassuming, and very generous. The greatest sympathy is felt for his widow and his little son, Brian, and also for his widowed mother and other members of his family, The in terment took place in the Brighton cemetery on Tuesday.

EXPLANATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
EXPLANATION WANTED. Sir.-I would like an explanation from Cr. Hewitt as to his attitude in opposing the improvements to the road from Thomson's hotel to King lake East, which road, as Cr. Hewitt must know, is in a most shocking state. Is the shortage of funds the only reason why such opposition should come from the representative of our riding? As I am sure the money" difficulty could have been overcome and the opportunity of receiving a grant of £150 not turned down. If the road past Cr. H ewitt's place was only half as bad and such a splendid opportunity was forthcoming, would his opposition be as strong. Now, the bad state of this 'road is due to timber traffic in the wet weather. Last year it was exceptionally bad and this winter it will most likely be much worse. I believe the Country Roads Board has notified the council that such traffic was to close at the end of last month, and I would like to know why this state of things is allowed to :exist, especially when shortage of fu...
THAT CORNER AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
THAT CORNER AGAIN. SIR,-Allow me to point out a few more facts for "Fair Play" and the Strathewen Progress Association to di gest. (I). Within one mile of Schultz's bridge is Gumm's bridge, a fine con crete structure, for which the Eltham shire borrowed many hundreds of pounds, on which we are paying at present many pounds each year in in terest. (2). Messrs Schultz and Ap ted have their orchards and residences on the eastern side of Schultz's bridge. The creek merely cuts off a few acres of their land. As to Mann Bros., they have another bridge within ioo yards of their house. In fact, the Eltham and Whittlesea shires have constructed bridges every mile over this creek, and no resident has to go very far to en= able him to cross bridge after bridge. In a distance of ten miles there are, to my knowledge, nine bridges over the same creek, viz., I. Hurstbridge, a con crete structure, costing several thou sands of pounds ; 2. Burke's bridge; 3. Linotn's bridge; 4. Hutchinson's bridge ;...
ELTHAM v TEMPLESTOWE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
ELTHAM V TEMPLESTOWE Eltham met Templestowe on the former's ground on Saturday. Eltham were considerably weakened by the absence of six players, who were out of the team-three with injuries, and the remainder with influenza. Umpire Birmingham was in charge of the game. The first quarter al though not resultant of fine play, was fairly evenly contested, Eltham lead-. ing through the accuracy of their for wards. The Eltham back line was weak, as also were their wings. The scores:-Eltham, 4 goals; Temple stowe, 2 goals '5 behinds. Temple stowe took command in the second quarter, and at half time were in the lead. Scores:-Templestowe, 5 goals 7 behinds; Eltham, 4 goals 2 behinds. 'I he third quarter showed a distinct reversal, Eltham being in the ascený dant. Le Brocq a junior, who filled the place of one of the absentees, on the forward line was giving a good accbuut of liimself; he took two Lr lliant marks, and netted two goals. Scores:-Eltham. 6 goals 4 behinds, Templestowe, 5 goals ...
FOOTBALL. DIAMOND VALLEY ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
FOOTBALL.. DIAMOND VALLEY ASSOCIATION. The following are to-morrow's fixtures: Greensborough v.- Warrandyte Heidelberg v. Eltham Hurstbridge v. Kangaroo Ground Diamond Creek v. Templestowe The above matches conclude the first round of home and home matches. Interest, in the comnpetition continues unabated, and during the next round a keen struggle for' pos itions in the leading four is sure to ensue. Greensboi-ough are undefeated, although they had two close games with Diamond Creek (five points) gaid Hurstbridge (three. points), aid it is alleged that faulty umpiring suited the leaders, and thus gave them narrow victories.. The Diamond Creek team has been depleted during the last few weeks through influenza, as also has the Eltham team, while:. Hurstbridge, owing to a prolonged cricket season, were minus several of their best players up to two weeks, ago, and each are now out to make rapid strides to secure a place in the.. finals. Templestowe-and Heidelberg have been showing splen...
ELTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
ELTHAM. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT ) On Saturday evening the Foot ball Club held a :uccessful confetti battle and dance. The attendance was good. Miss Goldman was at the piano, and Mr. W Noble officiated as T.(C. Despite the team's reversal in the afternoon, the patrons were in festive mood, and the confetti battle was an outburst for their feelings. During the evening the results of the guessing competition-a number of lollies in a bottle-was announced. VMrs Ilirchall and Mr F. West checked the contents of the bottle, which was found to contain 411 lollies. Mr C. Gordon was nearest with 410; the next being P. West with 415. The prize was a small blackwood table. The evening was a great success, and the proceeds will help to swell the club's funds. The improvements which are being effected to the railway station are nearing completion. The inter locking system is now in working order. Twenty-six levers are pro vided, sixteen for the semaphores, and ten for thepoints. Although the new p...
PHONE TO HURSTBRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
PHONE TO HURSTBRIDGE Some time ago the Panton Hill Pro gress Association requested the Postal Dept. to establish direct telephonic com munication between Panton Hill and Hurstbridge. At present all calls go through the aMelbourne Exchange and the delays thus caused are so frequent and lengthy that very little use is made of the phone. It was pointed out that the main volume of business from Panton Hill, Queenstown and King lake would be with Hurstbridge, Dia mond Creek and Heidelberg, as these are the centres for railways, trade and medical business; but the Postal Dept. knows our requirements better than we do ourselves and informs us that the present facilities are adequate. If Queentown, Kinglake and Hurstbridge took the matter up there might be a chance of persuading the Dept. that our present facilities are not adequate nor even Tair.
Correspondence. FRUIT CASES [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
Correspondence. FRUIT CASES Sir,-It ought to be patent to any fruitgrower in the Metroplitan dis trict who has been in the habit .of handling, the standard bushel ,case over a 'number 'of years,, what an abomination they are from a utili tarian .'and: economical standpoint.' Such dirty rubbish should have been done away with long ago, and the' science of making them forgotten. The time occupied in repairing these wretched returned receptacles, full of rusty nails, menacing the hands from within and without, is a cruel waste and trying to the temper of orchardists Is. it any 'wonder employees on the railways drop them anywhere but on their toes? If a uniform! case; both for home and export use, were re duced 'in • dimensions, so that the season's pack could be easily and com fortably handled, and the .packages termed "parcels" instead of "cases" and "bushels" it would appeal to the average man or woman everywhere who was not built for a "lumper." .Here is a matter that may be taken u...

GET TOGETHER YARRA GLEN TO THE THE EDITOR OF ADVERTISER. Sir,-This old town, looks worn ::nd drab : the gaps which .should he filled up with bright new houses still remain. Residents are used to them, but visitors go away with a shrug of the shoulders, Yarra Glen! too disconnect ed! no progress there. Other towns are progressing; some by leaps and bounds -even little Christmas Hills has been stirred to life again, and we lead of a bunyip and a boom in full blast there, with sales of land at rising prices and people enquiring and coming to see the place. Why ? a poetic lady and a live man have come to live here, and things are happening and going to happen too. Cannot someone be found to boost our town and dis trict? Both are worth it. We badly need people, new people, more people -spelling progress and prosperity. A change is necessary. The town has struck. Where is :he man? Of course we have our councillors, Ilut in spite of their best efforts there is too much stagnation-too littl...

HOW TO KEEP FIT. SOME COMMON SENSE HINTS BY AN EXPERT WHO NEVER KNOWS A MINUTE'S ILL-HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
HOW TO RIEEP FiT. SOME COMMON SENSE HINTS BY AN EXPERT WHO NEVER KNOWS A MINUTE'S ILL-HEALTH No man can keep fit without care. Robuast health depends not upon eat ing or drinking alone, but, to a greater extent in the moderate man, on observing rules of life which con tribute to his proper employment of food. He must have plenty of air, to begin with. If he goes without air for five minutes he loses his life, but he might fast for a week without seri ous harm. Yet the air must be pure. Pure air is impossible where men are crowded together without sufficient ventilation and the reason is this. The air ex pelled from the lungs contains a dan gerous gas which, inhaled for a few minutes, is destructive of life. When a third-class compartment in a railway carriage is occupied by a number of people and the windows are closed, each person, breathing as he does, on an average, fifteen times a minute, consumes 480 cubic inches of air. The pure air is thus gradually ex hausted, and its place ...
