THE "ELTHAM RANGER." [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 28 June 1918
THE "ELTHAM RANGER." &nbsp; Ranger of Eltham Shire, Bursting with fierce desire Roaming stock to acquire, and impound; Trouble and unhappiness, Through thy stock snappiness, Profusely thou art scattering around. Wild is the noise and loud &nbsp; That comes from the injur'd crowd ; The bitten among the proud must feel &nbsp; sore, As you on your flying steed &nbsp; Catch horse, cow; and weed, Making the recalcitrant, who bleed, want your gore. The Shire fences between Both the fat stock and lean, Eating the blade sweet and, green, you capture, Panton Hill and Hurstbridge gravel, Arthur's Creek and Kinglake you travel, Stock everywhere you snavel, for rapture. Then when your day is done, Counting the cash you've won, Reck'ning the miles you've run, you conclude &nbsp; The councillor is a rotter Who says, "This stock-potter &nbsp; Is growing much hotter, he did intrude Into a ratepayer's land, Exceeding our command, We'll have to stay his...
NEWS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 28 June 1918
NEWS OF THE DAY. There is always some news in the papers to interest people. The war, of course, is an every day topic. Then again, the price of meat en- &nbsp; gages the attention of all except the vegetarians. Some people are troubled about the doings of the Ranger. I have noticed a few fresh items lately, viz., that a new star has been dis- covered, and that the next Melbourne Show is going to be a dry one, also that some changes are going to be made in the method of educating young Australians in the State Schools. The aforesaid star is not, as you may suppose, a new vocal or dramatic celebrity like Charlie Chaplin, but is just one of the every night sky variety of the twinkle twinkle little star breed that you can see in thousands any clear night. I don't know if this new star was the cause of the wiseacres of the Show Department stopping the sale of the superluscious beverage on the grounds or not, but so be it the fiat has gone forth that no intoxicants are to be disp...

fREAD THEIR OWN OBITUARLUPIB. GOrtain German newspapcrs, by con fteing Earl Gray with Viscount Gray, have given the latter an opportunity of reading his own obituary. There have been many similar iestances.. Among the distinguished people who have been 'buried" by the nowspap ere before they were dead , may be mnaticned the late Count Tolstol, the Rev. S. Baring-Gould, and Dr. Ken alon, the present Bishop of Bath and Wells. Obituary notices of the late O.

DBoth the newepapere in question," wrote Mr. Drookfield, re ferring to the incident, 'spoke of me far more kindly than I had any right to expect, and one finished up by say lag : 'Never a great actor, he was in valuable in snall parts,' while the othor remarked in conelusion, "But, after all, it is at his club that he will be most mimned."

The POPE'S TRIPLE CROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 28 June 1918
The POPE'S TRIPLE OROWW. Of ginally the tiara, or tripple crown of the Pope wee a plain high ecap, much like those in doges of Ven Ice ED often represented in old pictures. It was first introduced by Pope Nicholas I in 860. Just when the Eirst noronet was ad led is a matter of uncertainty, but the second wasee placed by Pope Boni face VIII in 1295, and the third by Pope Utban about 1891. It has been held ,that' the three crowns refer to the Holy Trinity, al though that could not originally have been the idea, for they would certainly not have been added one after the other with an lntervening period in each caea of many years. Some authoritios contend that they denote the three-fold royalty of the lirhop of Rome, one bring theyymbol of the temporal power over the Rom an states, another the spiritual ex ercisedl over the souls of men, and the third the authority over all the kings and potentates of Christendom.
