Popular School Inspector. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923

Popular School Inspector. Mr J. T.. Saxton, M.A., who has been well and favorably known in the Eltham and Whittlesea shires during the past five years as Inspec tor of Schools, has received notice of transfer to No. I district, which in cludes Prahran and .Mornington. lines, and he takes up his duties in that area on August 1. Mr Saxton paid his final visit to the Panton Hill and Queenstown schools this week, and the regrets expressed there at his departure will be shared in every school district. Mr Saxton is differ ent to most inspectors, as he strives to make his visits happy ones for teachers and scholars, and judging ,by the way he is greeted when ap proaching a school his methods have been successful. His advice to chil dren has been to smile at their friends, their enemies, and their work,, and it would help them to succeed. The inspector's genial man ner made him hosts of friends every where, and apart from the good work he did amongst the scholars, he ex-. ercised a stimula...

Diamond Creek. INDUCTION SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923

Diamond Creek. INDUCTION SERVICE. (FROMa OUR CORRESPONDENT) On Wednesday, July II, Archbishop Lees journeyed to Diamond Creek to induct the Rev. Canon Constable to the parish of Diamond Creek. He was accompanied by the Rev.. J. A. Peck, vicar of Eltham. - There was a crowded congregation in the church. In open ing the service the Archbishop express ed his deepest sympathy with the Rev. T. S. Wood in his illness, and a prayer. was offered up on behalf of the sufferer. The Archbishop took for his subject "The Fall of Jericho," and drew many interesting lessons from the old story, which he applied to the occasion. The taking of Jericho was not accomplished in a day, and so it takes time to build up a parish. Each day was filled with its own task. Faithfully done, it was part of the plan which ultimately brought about the capture of the city. The Seventh Day was marked by spe cial features, and proved to be the most important day of the week ; so Sunday was the special day in the Christ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923

Sir,-"Anti Borrower," in a re cent issue, states that the Kinglake Progress Association blamed Cr, Hewitt for the loss of £150 Govern ment grant. "Anti" is quite cor rect in that statement. He may al so be correct in saying that the lion's share of the estimates. have been spent in Kinglake (and dis trict). It all depends on the "dis trict portion." It is my opinion that "Anti," would include half the North riding to make his case good. He maintains that Cr. Hewitt was quite right in opposing a further increase of debt. Does he not know that Cr. Hewitt had his share of the estimates, and had that share spent as well as £25 out of Cr. Campbell's share, to secure a grant of £150: for Fenton's-road. I had this informa tidn froim Cr. Campbell some months ago when` he explained" his' action ih the matter. I noticed also that at the April meeting of .the council *Cr. Hewitt asked for £20 to be spent on Cherry Tree-road. There. was nothing on the estimates for it. Of course " Anti " knows ...

Correspondence. NORTH RIDING ROADS [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 20 July 1923

Correspondence. NORTH RIDING ROADS Sir, -Tle correspondence appear ing in your paper recently, uphold ing the council's stop-work policy, prompts one to ask are these writ ers men who are compelled to use the .roads under all conditions, or are they the kind - that prop up verandah posts, smoke pipes, and run the shire in theory ?. These would-be leaders of public thought or .opinion, the, shocking state of most of the North riding main roads, coupled with the' gasping state of the North riding finances, make the progressive ratepayer feel that cir cumstances have placed him in a position which he must alter or say goodbye to progress. I speak of the man who is doing something for his district, and himself-who has a big quantity of produce to transport, and must use the roads as they ,are. Each district can furnish a number of such settlers be it "Beautiful Strathewen, Kinglake, Queenstown or Panton Hill." These settlers are the back-bone of the North riding its very life blood-yet ...

Living Within Our Means. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923

Living Within Our Means. On the hustings Country Party can didates made out a strong case for liv ing within our means and reducing de partmental expenditure. That a defin. ite attempt has been made by the Treasurer (Dr. Page) to do so was' the outstanding feature of the financial statement he submitted to the House of Representatives last week, when he showed that £437,000 had been saved on the vote for ordinary departmental expend ture last year and £700,000 on 1920-21. Ever since 1911 depart mental expenditure has soared higher yearly and continued to do so since the termination of the war, notwithstand ing reported- promises made for economy. Although the Bruce-Page Government. has only been in office for live months, a determined effort has been made to secure economy in ad ministration and a substantial reduc tion in departmental expenditure has been achieved As proof of this, there is not the actual saving shown above, but when the the Treasurer recently applied for two month...

Pre-historic Inhabitants. GLASTONBURY LAKE VILLAGE [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923

Pre-historic Inhabitants. i GLASTONBURYLAKEV ILLAGE I During the winter of 1853-4, the , discovery of the remains of an ancient lake village at Ober-Meilin, 1 on the shores of Lake Zurich, was the beginning of a number of lacus trine researches, which proved that the pre-historic inhabitants of Swit- 1 zerland were in the habit of construct ing pile villages along the margins of their lakes. This discovery caused t a systematic search to be made throughout Europe and the British Isles. Very few discoveries of im portance were made in England prior to the discovery and exploration of Glastonbury lake village in 1892. There are three methods of making these villages :-1. Wooden piles are driven into the shallow portion of a lake, leaving the tops projecting at a uniform height above the water. On these piles a platform is made, capable of supporting a dwelling. These were very common in Europe during the Stone and Bronze Ages. 2. In the Iron Age the lake dwellers of France and North G...

THE AND @iamond ar?1e viai?tj $dvorate Published 1E ery Friday Afternoon HURSTBRIDGE, JULY 27, 1923. WHO SAYS COUNIJCILLOR? Mixed compliments are applied to the men who give their time and ability in conducting' local govern ment work in the interests of rate payers. From the remarks of the uninitiated (aud there are many) one would think a councillor was getting all the plums out of the council pie, but invariably the crust has been broken and the fruit distributed far and wide ere he gets a seat at the table. Those who talk most and lay down the law-their own rarely offer themselves for election, but want the other fellow to go in and get the pinpricks of the rate payers. The average member first enters the council chamber with the intention of revolutionizing matters. but the first thing he is up against is finance, and that is generally the thing that drives him out. It must be remembered that councillors have a hard task before them. They are hedged in by the Local Government A...

Lowestoft's recent herring-fishing season produced 373,903 crans, worth :£920,000, several of the 500 boats engaged in the industry making as much as £5,000 each. The Hindus have no word meaning Our ~bood constitutes 7.7 per cent. of our weight. The Eritish flag was first hoisted over Kimberley, South Africa fifty years ago.

Burke, on the hill, Hurst bridge, was totally destroyed by fire at 9 p.m. on Monday. Mr Burke left home at 5 p.m for the city mark et, and there was no one else at the house. Neighbors first saw the flames coming from the front of the. house, but were not able'to save any thing when they arrived at the fire; which only lasted an hour.

New Federal Loen. RETURNED SOLDIER'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923

New Federal Loen. RETURNED SOLDIER'S VIEW. By L C. Elliott, President of the R. S and S. I L'of N. S. W. It is being stated in many quarters that there is no question of sentiment in the new Commonwealth Loan, and that it is pureijr a financial propdsition. I do not agree with this viewpoint. The Federal Treasurer has stated that the money in present instance is re quired to provide for the unconverted balance of the Seventh War Loan falling due on September 15th next. This loan was really a promissory note drawn on Australia for the defenders of Australia-the returned soldiers. Noncombatants supported it-very will ingly, as is demonstrated by the fact that nearly a quarter of a million peopbe subscribed. The victorious end of the war did not terminate the citizens' duty, and to me it seems quite plain that if this renewal loan is not over subscribed, every returned soldier will feel that his long yea s of service at the war have been forgotten. I am afraid that the general public e...

THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 27 July 1923

THOUGHTS, (BY MERNDA, I am afraid we are often more or less a sensational people, and inter ested people are very fond of creat ing what we may ,call " scares " for whatever is likely to - benefit them selves, as, for instance, the omin ous statements in the Federal Parlia ment re our defenceless position and out of it-by military men. In the early days of the Great War the prophesies re our badly drilled sol diers were very depressing, but what turned out to be the actual outcome of Australia's first entry into a European war. Our soldiers, with comparatively little drilling as com pared with the soldiers of Europe, (created a feeling of intense wonder and admiration throughout the civilized world by their wonderful bravery and work at Gallipoli. They were at once hailed as the par at least of any soldiers in the world, and many thought they were the superior. I can assure you, Sir, young lads in their teens laid down their lives at Gallipoli. In the front rank of those who so nobl...
