TOOLANGI; -----@,~ (From our Corresponmlent.j Feb. 15. Our school has at last l,een turned again to full time,. so that the many promqises made by the Department for several months past have ,been kept (evidently an unusual proceeding) but not before ?Mr. A'Kenzie took the matter in hand. Great talk has been occasio?ed here by Mr. Cameron's vote-hunpting expcdi tions, especially by hisi.atei liberality to the shire councillors, but surely votes are not caught so easily in Healesville, so I suppose one must take what was said at the table wiit the proverbial grain of salt. The two new saw-tiiills are now in full swing, w[ hicli means that a. auch larger quantity of timber will now leave the forest. The output of palings is larger than it hlas evei been before, the quantity sent away for the three weeks of last month totalling 370 tons.

MINING MEETING VICTORIAN MT. MORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 February 1900

MINING MEETING VICTORIAN MIT, MORGAN. The half yearly meeting was held last 'eek,at Broken Hill Chamhers, Queens-street, Melbourne,. Mr. E. AM. Cairns presiding. The -Chairman ini moving the adoption of the reports and balance-sheet pointed out that un-' fortunately, the treatoieuit by cyanid.e of the oxidised and rulFphide ore liad proved unsucessful, .as had been the case.in many other mines in the colony. They had to pay for. the exper!iaee, like the Loch .Fyne and the VWoi:ga, and the fact remained that only roast ing and chlorination could treat the ore., They had already drivin" in 4th deep tunnel gcmg e-ast through GOft of rock, heavily charged with iron pyrites, of a low -rade, giving an assav vahie of from? 2d:wt to 12dwt.

MARYSVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 February 1900

iWARYSViLLE , (From our o0n Correspondent.) Crime is becoming rife in this district. Mr. Maurice Keppel's hotel bar was broken into on the 13th inst. by some paltry thief, entrancel being'made by the window, Then the thief turned his at tention to the till for a few shillings, a bottle of 'wine and some salmon, which he took into the bush and started to gorge. It would, I think, be well if the police kept an eye on some people who do little or no work, A most diabolical act has been perpe trated here, when two pigs, belonging to Messrs. Fisk Bros, which were enclosed in small paddock; were maniliciously poisoned by somne person or persons, the poison used being plhosphorous. It would appear that either the ill-feeling has not yet died out over the racing episode at Bux'on, or, perhaps, the fact of being new settlers fiay be resented. 'It is to be hoped that the perpetrator of the deed will b bbrought to ju'stice. Word. has lieen received from Mr. Jas. Balfour, M.L.C., to the effect ...

WHITE-FACED GIRLS. HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR COMPLEXION. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 February 1900

WHFITE-FACED GIRLS. HOW TO IMPROV YOtjUR COMPLEXION. Girls with that unhealthy pasty look are greatly to. be pitied. The dark look underneath the eyes which accom panies this paleness is a sure, sign of an wnhearltly .body, with anaemic con ditions" in the system.' ';:The 'healthy "girl has a fresh rosy complexion which is much admired. Let ut inquire into the reason of these very. opposite. con :ditions; Good healthy blood is abso lutely essential to a good complexion. Many girls with almost perfect featuire ;are always annoyed" at finding that they are neither pretty not attractive. They think their trouble is their face, when it is really their liver. To have good blood, the liver must be in excel lent working order, the stomach able to perform its part of the contract,. and the person must be absolutely free from all digestive troubles. BILE BEAN-sX are compounded expressly to bring about this condition of things, and- girls with a pasty white skin, can not do better than- try t...

PERTINENT P.RS. [BY sAWK-EYE I was at the concert and lecture in Daly's Hall last Friday evening and, in common with the majority of those who attended the " siivoo," enjoyed myself intn;ensely.. Rarely, if ever, have I sat and listened to a more masterly and finished lecturer as the Rev. Father Robinson.. his, subject was one vichlc aipp-aled to him. " Ireland," with picture, .onog and story-how deir to the lc.rts of all Irishmen-has a charm for its people which those outside its circle can scarcely for onie mnoment iimagine. That the rev. gentleman is a past master in dealing .with the subject must be confessed. His versatility, his grandiloquence, his immense fund of repartee arid anecdote, comnbined with other talents, place him as a bright star in the lecturing firmament, from whose rays there comneth much light.

He's the first man in the nation, though his stature isn't great, And if he isn't bulky, his opinion "carries weight I" In a crowd you'd chance to miss him, for he has no lordly air But there's nothing worth the winning that his spirit wouldn't dare ! There's no foe you'd like to mention that Scould make him know a fear, For the hissing rain of bullets is as music to his car I He's another Alexander-with a world to conquer yet, And he'll leave :a name behind him that the foe will not foaget I The Nation's faith is ia hirn,'and he'll 'du what mortal can--.. He'd give his heart's blood for us, would our little:Irishman. . You may gather all ynaurgenerels-ay ! ithe liravestntear and far, But they can't-nenat him who topped .the list at gory Kandlhar! :. .
