Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 5 April 1879

To be carefully readby all Business Men. Extract from Horace Greeley's Prize Essay. on. ADVERTISING.` TO the merchant or dealer who is sure of his ability to fulfil orders on' the most favorable terms, the attainment of an adequate publicity is a'inatter of primary concern. If his circle of trade is properly the district in which he lives, then he should take effectual measures to let every family ill the district know what he sells and an what conditions. It is idle to speak of the cost as an impediment. He might as well object to the cost of sheltering his noods from bad weather, protecting them from thieves, or dealing out to customers. All the other cost of his business is incurred without adequate motive or return, so long as the essential element of his lusiness is neglected or crimped. If his vocation and his stock only entitle him to expect the custom of his own township and neighborhood, then he should incur the expenses of fully informing that locality. Just so with the wh...

THORNTON V ALEXANDRA STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 5 April 1879

THORNTON V ALEXANDRA STANDARD. A very pleasant day was spent on Saturday at the cricket ground, when the Thornton team took the field against the "Standard Club," and succeeded in winning the match by 14 rune, the Alexandra in the first innings getting 57 rune, and in their second only 17 runs all out ; the result of the play of the Thornton team being 39 runs in the first, and 49 in their second innings. For the Thorntonians T. Robb bowled in great form, and secured most of the wickets of their opponents. W. Whiting did well also for his aide, the fielding of Stillman was good at all points, and this young player is certainly algreat acquisition to the club, as either at the crease or in the field he is a most useful member s his defenoe is very good, and he plays a steady game, and let hilm in the field he placed where may he Is all there when wanted. Scorah as wioket keeper for Thornton worked well, and ditto may be said of M'Donald for the other side. Messrs Johnson and Dickson ...

CRICKET MATCHES. ALEXANDRA v JOHNSTON'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 5 April 1879

CRICKET MATCHES. ALEXANDRA v JOHNSTON'S CREEK. The return match between Alexandra and Johnston's Creek clubs took place on Satur day, and was well attended by the lite of the neighbourhood, who seemed to enjoy the day's play. The weather was splendid, and the ground in good order. Johnston's Creek got together a capital eleven, when Alexandra could only muster ten men, Alexandra went first to the wickets, being represented by Wollaston and Moon. Hewitt and Walker opened with the ball, but runse came very freely, both batsmen playing with ease. At last W. Moon was run out, after a good innings of 13. Chorleton followed with a "duck's egg," and McNeo with 10 runs, quickly and neatly compiled. Then Wollas ton stepped out to a slow from Walker, and fell a victim to the unerring Rogers, after scoring 49 very rapidly. G. Cookson 8) and Brennan (0 not out) made the only stand after this, and the innings closed for 104. Purcell and Hartley started the batting for Johnston's Creek, but the f...

THE LEAP FOR LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 5 April 1879

THE LEAP FOR LIFE. SMax Kirkland looked up suddenly, as the gay voices rose high above the clatter of machinery. There was to be another exhibition, he said to himself bitterly; an ex bibition of poverty to wealth. Some more fashionable people were coming to visit the noisy factory. He dislik-d those episodes ine.xpressibly. He bad not yet lost the pride which shrinks instinctively from coarse associa tion- Not that he was ashamed to labour; bu; the finer part of his nature rebelled against the thoughtless, supercilious scrutiny with which these gay butterflies of curiosity-seekers re garded him. He went on mechanically with his work. A labourer has no right to have idle hours, if his thoughts are troubled. He had better not think at all. His tall, broad-chested form was ;clad; in coarse grey, but the garb could ..not destroy the manhood stamped on every feature. His hair was thrown in ose chestnut waves back from his forehead; his eyes were clear and . tranquil; his face flushed an...

DOON RACES. Ever since the establishment of the town. ship of Doon, the people of the district have become famed for their energy and enterprise, particularly in the matter of racing, and the annual meeting, which took place on Thurs day, 27th March, was no exception to the general rule. Thero was a largo attendance of visitors from other districts, besides those from the immediate locality, and the stakes being of fair value attracted a considerable number of good horses. Every one present seemed to enjoy themselves, the racing being good and the several events hotly contested, and no more enjoyable day could bhe spent than in paying a visit to the "banks and braes of bonnie Doon" on the occasion of the annual races. At night a very pleasant gathering took place in the large hall near Mr Woolf's hotel, and dancing was kept up till long after the dawn of the following day. Following is the result of the races.

CHIPS. Well I well I poor old "Toby" could not make a remark at the head of last week's "Chips" without giving offence Now you know it is only the brave who deserve the fair, and also only those who the cap they fit need wear it I "Toby" is therefore very sorry indeed I He thought that our little Peddlington was so strictly moral that he could venture to retail the little, anecdote of the two ladies without its pinching any ones corns I but the various enquiries made, and the nods, winks, and side looks bestowed upon him since, makes him think that he must unconsciensiously have struck a patch somewhere. If such is the case, and the party will oblige by sending his, her, or their names, Toby will certainly call and tender his apologies; but the signs tend to convince him that where there is smoke the fire must not be far off. Keep it dark, as at present Toby happens to be on the look out for squalls, dear friends I Robinson Crusoe was not a thief, but they Sll me that there is a thi...
