Christmas Hills. PRIZES AT THE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 September 1923
Christmas Hills. -- ~ - PRIZES AT THE SHOW. (From a Correspondent.) It is with great pleasure we have to report that the Christmas Hills State School has been awarded three prizes at the Royal Agricultural Show. These comprise :--A first for vegetables, a' third for citron melons, and a third for beet. As the dry cultural methods were em ployed it is particularly gratifying to have secured these successes. What can be done in a small way can surely be done eon a larger scale, and the success of the school should be an incentive to the whole district to endeavour to produce more vegetables both for its own use and for sale. Christmas Hills is a potential market garden area for the City of Melbourne, but more must. be. done to test its productive capacity. The Progress Association is taking the matter in hand, and the hearty co-operation of its members along systematic and scientific lines is certain to lead to favorable re suilts. The Progress Association de sire to compliment the he...

"Panton Hill. S(Fo:roOui','Owjh. Correspondent.) On Friday evening an entertain nibmnt was giveii at Panton Hill by the local minstrel troupe. in aid of the hail funds. I-n anticipation of an evening's excellent amusement a -numerous. audience assembled and thoroughly enjoyed the efforts of the gentlemen of Ethiopian hue.

These conditiois were illustrated by' the twd classes:: ofitems which mainly constituted the programme -the old plantation melodies and 'the' comic songs. The local jokes and gags iwere 'very amusing and were/highly enjoyed by those who'were the sub jects of the darkies' wit as well as by the geneial audience. Suiiring'the evening the "Niggers" i presented to. -Miss -Alma Goodwin a sligiht token of esteem. 'Miss Good win, his been a splendid accompanist for `the troupe.

The coffin, covered with the Union Jack, was conveyed to the Melbourne General Cemetery. It was a very striking token of respect that .along -St. Kilda-road and to the gates of the cemetery, ex-soldiers, policemen and tram officials stood to the salute' as the cortege passed them while every civilian silently raised his hat. The service was conducted by Rev. E. Selwyn Chase, vicar of St. Matt hew's Church, Panton Hill, and on. Sunday, 16th inst, a memorial ser vice was held in this church. There was a crowded congregation and the service commenced with the "Dead March in Saul," played by the church organist. Then followed the hymn, "Rock of Ages," the form of service for church parades being us ed by the vicar and worshippers. Hymns, "Nearer My God to Thee," "Now the Labourer's task is o'er," and " Abide with...

The Show Luncheon. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 September 1923
The Show Luncheon, (By one who was there.) Having the honor of an invitation to the official luncheon of the Royal Agricultural Society on the 21st, I accepted it with pleasure. The popular president (Col. C. E. Mer ritt) presided, and proposed the toast of " The King," a fine band playing the National Anthem. In proposing "The Lieutenant Gover nor " (Sir William Irvine) the Pre sident spoke of his ability as a statesman and as one who for years represented a farming community. In coupling the name of Lady Irvine with that of the Lieutentant-Gover nor,he said she was ever ready to help the women on the land, and some time ago pressed for better times for them. Sir William, in replying, said he took a great interest in farming pur suits for 25 years while in Parlia ment. While feeling honored to ad dress one of the m'ost representative gatherings held in Australia, and, es chewing politics, he would like to sound a warning note to all. For tunately they were not troubled with earthqu...
NORTH RIDING FINANCES. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 September 1923
NORTH RIDING 'FINANCES. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,- Some two months ago' Cr. Campbell broke out in a totally un provoked attack on me in a foolish letter in your paper in which, after laboriously quoting figures which were "stale," he ended up with the gross absurdity that next year, even with a 2/6 rate, we should have only £143 for works (see letter of July 20th.) His words were: "I would like to state how the present rate of 2/6 pans out. If the overdraft is paid off, as it should be, the result is a balance for works of £143." Verily the mountains laboured and brought forth a mouse (as the Romans would say !) In my reply (see letter of August 17th) I pointed out that instead of £143 we would have about £2000 for road work, and in his lat est attack Cr. Campbell says: "That is most likely true," evidently forget ting his absurdity about £143, and proving that it is not Cr. Hewitt who is unreliable in matters concerning the finances of the Shire. Again Cr. Campbell says ...
Whittlesea District Exhibit. FIRST AT THE ROYAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 September 1923
Whittlesea District Exhibit. FIRST AT THE ROYAL SHOW. The people of the Whittlesea dis- trict are a self-contained people, and if anything should go wrong with the working of the wheels of commerce they would be the last to suffer. The notable exhibit of the Agricultural Society, which has gained first prize for the sixth year in succession, is striking evidence of it, and it is not only the staging that arrests the at- tention of visitors, but the variety of exhibits from the farm and the home. For about 20 years Whittle- sea had a keen competitor in Bac- chus Marsh, but the latter, unfor- tunately, did not, show this year, Sale being the only other district to make a display. Out of a maximum total of 1000 points, Whittlesea se- cured 865, and Sale 709. On points Whittlesea is a little better than last year, when it secured 856 points. A very effective sign was the "Whittlesea," in apples, designed and made by the Rev. J. Raff, Pres- byterian minister of Whittlesea, while a model ...

Correspondence. MONTMORENCY ROADS. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-I have perused with interest the letter of Mr Nicholson appearing in your issue. of 23rd inst re roads at Montmorency. As the matter has been opened by him I am at liberty to give a co'r'ect statement of the position.. As chairman of the Montmorency R.S. Trust, I had amongst other duties to interview the railways Commissioners. At an interview the Chairman clearly indicated that the station was in-u tended to serve the whole district, and not a favored few. Certainly the Department only asked for one road on each side of the line to be guaranteed by the council, but Mr. Clapp insisted that the landowners should provide reasonable access to the station in addition to the roads -lready mentioned. As an example Mr. Clapp pointed to a position on the map indicating the corner of Mountain View-road and .Sher bourne-road, and asked how a pas senger- was to reach the station from there. I promised that a road would be ...

At the Melbourne Show. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 September 1923
At the Melbourne Show. (By Kookaburra,) Of course I went to the show; near- ly everybody does. I got there just after 8 on Thursday morning, and went straight to see how the Whittlesea folk were getting on with their district exhibit. The same ones were there pegging away, and it's a pretty seri- ous matter to put up a district exhibit. Bacchus Marsh and Wagga pulled out this year, and Sale put up a very de- cent show, but couldn't get within coo-ee-of the old uns, who beat them by 156 points — greatest win on record. Mooching around I picked up a paper, and almost the first item of news I read was that milk was to drop twopence a gallon, which is another concession by the Country Party to the consumers. I saw a very humorous incident in the pony judging ring. There were two in a class, one just about the height and one little fellow. The judge walked around the little chap, when he up and gave him a hard kick just below the end of his coat, and in due course the pony got second pri...
Fruit Crowlng in Australia. SALIENT FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 October 1923
Fruit Growing in Australia. SALIENT FACTS. BY W. H. EVERARD, M.L.A. (From "Inter--Ocean," Java.) The proprietors of the "Inter Ocean," a Dutch East Indian magaz ine, wrote to the member for Evelyn for his opinion on fruit growing in Australia, and, in a few lines on its contributors, says : "W. H. Everard, M.L.A., is recognis ed throughout the Commonwealth as the Parliamentary authority. upon the Australian fruitgrowing in dustry ; and a vigorous and active exponent of the overseas marketing. policy. His views upon production and marketing are thus of compel ling moment, and worthy of studied attention." FRUITGROWING COUNTRY. Australia is pre - eminently, a. fruit-growing country (says Mr. Everard), and there is no portion of the world better adapted by rea son of its climatic conditions for the production of fruit of the highest quality and marketable excellence. This; has been repeatedly recognised by travellers from all parts of the globe, who, speaking with a wide ex pert knowle...
