MARRIAGE MISFITS. FAMOUS MEN AND WOMEN WHO WROTE GREAT BOOKS AND DID GREAT DEEDS, BUT COULD NOT LIVE AT PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 June 1918

MARRIAGE MISFITS. FAMOUS IBEN AND WOMIEN WHO WROTII GREAT BOOKS AND DID GREAT DEEDS, BUT COULD NOT LIVE AT PEACE. "He's nothing but a monster-a great,- bullying, ill-natured monster I" Nice language of a woman to use of her husband isn't it ? Yet these were the words actually used by Lady iBulwer-Lytton, in describing the brilliant genius to whom we owe such masterpieces of fiction as "Pelham," "Rienzi," and "The Last Days of Pompeii." When in a crowded court their matrimonial squabbles at last came to be sifted, one of the sine with which the famous novelist was charged was of pouncing on his wife and burying his toeth in her cheek I But Lytton was only one of the famous men of letters whose marriage turned out little less than tragedies. Who does not. know, for instance, the story of the Carlyles ? Such famous men as Byron, Dickens, and Shelley were all equally unhappy in their matrimonial adventures. The second marriage of Shelley was not a failure; but how different was his firs...

DIAMOND CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 June 1918

DIAMOND CREEK. The jumble fair promoted by the Nillumbik State school, in aid of the funds of the Australian Red Cross, was held in the local hall on Saturday, June 8th, and proved to be the most successful effort in patriotic work yet undertaken by the school. The School Committee, teachers, parents, and resi- dents all worked hard to ensure suc-   cess. Goods were received from Rushworth, Portland, Brighton, Alex- andra, Anderson's Inlet, etc. Mr Cook (Chairman of the School Committee) introduced Cr Lorimer, who, in a short, concise speech, pointed out the work done by the schools in patriotic work, and referred especially to the comforts sent to the Military Hospitals. He then formally declared the fair open, and wished the stall holders all success. Mr C. Lawrey (Correspondent) in a few remarks referred to the cause for which all were working. The Head-teacher (Mr Warby) read a short account of the school's patriotic work. Many present were astonished at the work do...

I believe in taking a bottle of it every 5 or six weeks, it keeps me well. We are all apt to get negligent about our health. I allowed my nervous system to get unstrung, but it is good to know a medicine that strengthens the system quickly. I found Clements Tonic very satisfactory.

EVENING AT A COUNTRY GRAVEYARD. KANGAROO GROUND. (Where the late Hon. E. H. Cameron was buried. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 June 1918

EVENING AT A COUNTRY GRAVEYARD.   KANGAROO GROUND. (Where the late Hon. E. H. Cameron was buried. There's a dark grey gravestone facing the East, Where farm-land and bush-land meet, And the track to old Wood's Point "Over- lands" Winds down to the Watson's Creek. There's a man beneath, with his foot to the East, As always he walked in life ; In the light of day was his open way, And open his life and hearth. Dark grey stone in front of the group Catches first of the suns that climb Over the evergreen Christmas Hills, Immovable, strong, sublime. It stands like a leader, as he beneath Stood right throughout his life ; Looking right over the hills beloved, With a love that was shared with a wife. The greystone looks on the timbered range And scans man's puny marks. It's long since the gold rush in the creek, And where are the galloping men ? The crack of the stockwhip, the call, the bark, The cooee to "But and Ben"? Where are the marks of thousands of men Filtering in and ...

SHOULD MINISTERS MARRY? A CLEARGYMAN'S VIEWS. REASONS STATED. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 June 1918

SHOULD MINISTERS MARRY ? A CLERGYMAN'S VIEWS. REASONS STATED. Preaching at the Mernda Presby- terian Church on Sunday last, 16th inst., on "The Office of the Christian Ministry," from the text, Romans 11 and 15, "I magnify mine office," the Rev. Douglas Bruce, of the Whittle- sea Presbyterian Church, after stating that the Christian Ministry is an historical, intellectual, and spiritual office, referred to the correspondence in The Advertiser on "Unmarried   Ministers." He said :— Whilst not entering into details on the cor- respondence going on in a local paper on "Unmarried Ministers," I think   I may be permitted, in view of the interest taken, to make a few com- ments. The question, "Should minis- ters marry ?" is one that may well give rise to a really honest difference of opinion. In my discourse, I have tried to show that a minister's life and office are in the ideal vastly different to the life and office of any other profession or occupation. A min...

YARRA GLEN CHURCH OF ENGLAND. GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY AND Y.Z.'S SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 June 1918

YARRA GLEN CHURCH OF ENGLAND. GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY AND Y.Z.'S SOCIAL. Apropos of the correspondence in the "Advertiser" regarding the popu. larity of unmarried ministers, the suc cessful social gatherings at Yarra Glen may be cited as evidence. The date was Friday, June z4th. The Victoria Hall was crowded by a smerry, laughing party, who engaged in such amusing games as Winks, Disappointments, etc. Boys and girls face each other in rows. Certain pre-arranged words should correspond. If they do not, the dis appointed young man turns his back on the girl ; but if they do, they go off arm-in-arm-married. Amidst the laughing, one asked, "Now we're married what do we do next ?" which question caused much merriment. One girl pleaded she could not wink, so she got her sister to wink. Dances alternated with games-Sir Roger-dc Coverly and Blind Man's Buff; the two-step and then twos-and-threes. Mr Deverill, who has recently been appointed in charge of St. Paul's Church of England, proved ...

OBITUARY. DEATH OF J.H. WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 28 June 1918

OBITUARY.   DEATH OF J. H. WHITE     We sincerely regret to record the death of John Harkness White, the youngest son of Mrs. White and the   late Mr. Alexander Lamont White, which took place at his mother's resi- dence, Kangaroo Ground, on the 24th inst. The deceased, who was only 25 years of age, had been ill some time, so his demise was not altogether unex- pected. "Jack," as he was more familiarly known, was a good judge of horses and a rider over fences, and for years was a familiar figure not only at our local shows but at the Melbourne Show. Great sympathy is felt and expressed for his mother and brothers   and sister in their time of trouble.   The funeral took place last Wednesday afternoon, the procession following the hearse to the Kangaroo   Ground cemetery being a lengthy one. Representatives of all the surrounding districts and from Melbourne testified   to the popul...

CRACK BOY AVIATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 28 June 1918

CRACK.13OY AVIATOR. 'Give me the aeroplane I want, and I will go over to Berlin any. day or night, and come back, too-with my luck." These are the words of that intrepid young Canadian ainman, Major W. A. Bishop, who was recently appointed -Chief Instructor at the School of Aer lal Gunnery. Thus, at the age of •nineteen, he is in entire control of the most technical branches of England's air defence. Major Bishop~who is known among bis compatriots no "Canadian Capt -ain Ball,'+ comes from Owen Sound, Ontario, and his average out of 112 times "up" is forty-seven safe hits, forty-seven Huns down. The feat which gained the gallant airman his V.C. was the bringing down of four enemy planes after the solo tour of an aerodrome. He had the distinction, perhaps without pre cedent; at a recent invcetiture of be ing decorated with the V.0., D.S.O., and M.O..
