WORTH BEARING IN MIND. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 18 May 1889
WORTH BEARING IN MIND. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. Don't expect an advertisement to bear fruit in one night. Bread is the staff of human life, and advertising is the staff of business. A thing worth doing is worth doing vell. A thing worth advertising is worth advertising well. The enterprising advertiser proves that to unlerstands how to buy, because in ad :ertising he knows ho.w to sell. People who advertise once only in three months forget that most folks cannot re member anything longer tlmn three days. If you cen arouse curiosity by an asdver tisement, it is a point gained. The fair tex don't hold all the curiosity in the world. Quitting advertising in dull times is lihe tearing out a dam because water is tow. Either plan will prevent good times erom coming. Trying to do business without ndverti.ing is like wnining at a pretty girl through a pair of green goggles. You may know what you are doing, but no one else does. Enterprising people are beginning to learn the virtue of adve...

A MONUMENT TO TEMPERANCE. RECHABITE HALL, PRAHRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 18 May 1889
A MONUMENT TO TEMPER ANCE. RECHABITE HALL, PRAHRAN. We are enabled to furnish our readers this issue with an accurate wood-cut of the hnndsome new prcmiscs erected for the Perseverance Tent of techabites, in Clar. nce-street, I'ramhr. In a previous issue we gave some descrip tive particulars regarding this building, and thus it would be superfluous to recapitulate them here. The hall is a credit to the city of Prahran, and is an example of the pro grcss which characterises the Rechabite order. Some strange superstitioos are connected with eggs, and Scotch fishermen believe so firmly in some of them, that they are most averse to having them on boal, asserting that they bring adverse winds with them. In the west of England, there is a strong objection to having birds eggs brohght into the house, although it is quite allowable to have them up on the w.llls outside.

A SERVANT GIRL AND THE " P-- PRAHRAN BENCH. ... -4 A IHARD CASE. T'IE lot of a servant girl in this colony is not always so.happy as some folks would have us believe. She is pro verbially impudent and independent, ;nd is msore often in the wrong than' in "the right; but there, are exceptions to this as well as to every other rule. A .notable. exception has been engaging the attention of- the Prahran magis trates-for some time past.
