Tile WO?DERFUL WATERBURY, An Astonishing Modern Invention. The Watch for the People-a Marvel of Cheapness Strength, Accuracy, and Elegance secured at mnall Cost. The " Timekeeper of the Day" defies Competition. The sale of the celebrated Waterbury -Watches in Australasia has been of such a phenomenal character, and they have made such a palpable hit among all classes of the community, that the Waterbury Watch Company has decided to extend its already large business throughout these colonies. The testimony in favour of the Waterbury Watch, is simply Overwhelming and Unprecedented in the annals of the trade. Thousands of Waterbury Watches have been sold in Australasia. and from every quarter conme, uiasked for, tributes to their excellence. The extraordinary popularity of the Waterbury Watch is still further enhanced by the fact that it can be repaired at a smaller cost than any other watch. It should not be forgotten that the Waterbury was the first inexpensive Watch that could be ?u...
THE LADDIE. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 September 1894
THE LADDIE. By WARATAI. (Continued.) They stayed to luncheon, these visitors. Mr. Reynolds and Jim seemed to have a great deal to say to one another, so that the little maid was left a good deal with the lad and I. We sat on deck, under the shade of the awning. Ere long they quite forgot me, I fell out of their conversation, and evidently out of their thoughts. What had I in common with them 7 They talked of books, their favorite authors, the scenery around, and a thousand differant subjects. How that lad did talk to be sure; his arms folded on the arm of his chair as he leant towards her, watching with rapt eyes the varying lights and shades that crossed her winsome face. Now and then he would cause her laughter to ring forth as he quoted some humorous speech from one of the books they dis cussed. Anon she would look grave and her eyes grow misty as he talked on some sad subject. No wonder he gazed as though to photograph her picture for ever on his heart, she was such a dainty lit...

THE MINIMUM RATE OF WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 September 1894
THE MINIMUM RATE OF WAGES. We take the. following very sensi ble remarks on the above subject from the last issue of the Xilmore Adver tiser-: The minimum rate of wages, which has been mentioned in the Kilniore Shire recently, does not seem to have had the desired effect of lessening the labor difficulties. .Certain councillors argue that owing to the minimum rate being a good one, only .the very. best men, strong, young, and active, are employed by contractors.' Othersmain tained that a contractor would only pick the best men -available, whether there was a minimum rate or not. Among the works to which this minimum rate applies are relief works for the purpose of helping the unemployed, and the men who are employed, being the best men, Iand not being employed,, are the very people who least require it, since the weak, and old, not being the best men, and not being employed, are the men most requiring succour. Were the rate of- wages left to the option of the contractor, the help wh...

LABOR OVERTHROWS A MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 14 September 1894
LABOR OVERTHROWS A MINISTRY. A generation ago the idea that n powerful European ,Ministry would- Ie overthrown, because it refusuel to make allowances for railway emuploys to at tend a Congress would have bIee, scouted with ridicule. But that is what happened a few weeks ago in France. In that country the great bulk of the railways is held by six private companies which, however, in return for great concessions from the State, are accustomed to accept a suggestion from the Minister of Public Works as a command. The lines, actually State property, are those from Bordeaux and La Rochelle to Nantes, Saumnur, Chartres and Paris. Now there was a Congress of railway servants to be held, and a proposal was made that 150 men out of a total of 300,000 should be given leave of absence from their duties to enable them to attend this Congress. The Minister of Public Works said he would ask the companies to give the required permission, but he would not allow the employes of State railways .to a...
HINTS ON CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 September 1894
HINTS ON CRICKET. The following notes on the game have been kindly contributed by a local gentle man, who is an enthusiast in the noble pastime, which may be of use, not only to new players, but in helping older hands to improvement in the art, and may be to umpires also; and to this end are offered suggestions in relation to batting,.bowling umpiring, and the laws of the game. BATTING. Always wear pads, otherwise your cric ket will be slovenly and your nerve be spoiled. Choose a light bat; your play is then more " wristy." Stand firmly on the right leg ; seldom move it except to run out to a slow or to make a late cut. Keep left leg loose and able to move back or forward. Hold the bat firmly at the moment of playing, especially with the right hand, and in playing forward let the left slip round behind the handle, and keep the left shoulder well forward, Play with a straight upright bat at any straight ball, and stand well up to the line of the wicket. Don't flourish the bat when be...
