Borough of Wonthaggi. - MONQAY,. SEPTEMBER '. Correspondence. Department of ..Lands and Survey, re certain tree plantations which the council reported,were in a very bad state, and require immediate atten tion, stating that the Crown Lands Bailiff reported as follows:-"The ' tre^s are doing very well. The ti-tree scrub . . . has done more good than harm by protecting the young tree3 from heavy winds. ... The greatest trouble is people cutting the fences and letting cattle in. The fences have always been repaired by me. From wlv.it X can learn, some people think that the trees are too thick, and re quire thinning out. In my opinion that is not so."^ "The department explained that the -object of tree planting was to create a windscreen for the benefit of the township.-The reply was considered unsatisfactory, and it' was decided, oil the motion of Crs.

A Mother's Duty. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

It lias often been said that a mother's work is never done. It is equally true that a mother's anxiety about the welfare of her children is uever relaxed. This is largely owing to conditions which are quite beyond her control. Her back need only be turned for a. moment when something happeus. Her child has fallen down and received a cut or bruise or some other injury, or may even have been burnt or. scalded. Perhaps it hns eaten unripe fruit, or has got wet and become feverish, or it may be suffer ing great pain from toothache, ear acho or chilblains, whilst the doctor may be miles away or engaged upon some more serious case. Alone with out suitable remedy is a dreadful pre dicament for the poor mother, and yet to-day there need be no cause fo* alarm whatever owing to the advent of the wonderful OZONIA FIRST-AID OUTFITS, which not only contain a supply of the Greatest External and internal liemedy. "Ozonia," but also a medi cine measure or eye-bath, package of lint, a icll of bandag...

I ANOTHER WAIL FROM WATT-ST. I THE EDITOR TOWLETT EXPRESS). Sir, -"Hope deferred maketh the heart sick" truly applies to the case of the long suffering ratepayers of that Cinderella of the streets, the eastern portion of Watt Street. How we envy the residents of distant parls which shared the blessing of the loan money works. Perhaps it is wise and in fitnesp of things that no elec'ric lights should be allowed to dissipate the merciful darkness which at night hides the ugli ness of our street. Alas !

THE EXTINGUISHER SKIRT WILL THE CRINOLINE COME NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

THE EXTINGUISHER SKIRT WILL THE CRINOLINE COM3:'. NEXT ? Not very long ago it was remarked how clascly present day fashions arc following in the track of those of a hundred years ago. Formerly there was, tho hoop and the padded skirt; this was followed by the classic dresses of tho Empire, including the simple higli-waisted frock of Madame "do Kc camier, and a¥so tho exaggerations of the Mervcjllcitses, tho tight skirt, and the eccentrio hitch. Then came tho beginning of the tight bodice, but the increasing full skirt, and finally the crinolinc. Queen Victoria's wedding dress was half way between the two. How history repeats itself can be. seen t'rojn a survey of recent fashions. The Empiro vogue, with itis pretty simple line, lasted a considorablo time, and only gave way to the tunic and tiie hobble skirt, which moro or less car ried out the Greek suggestion. Sinco then tho tunic has become moro and. moro important. It has lengthened and widened, and: the skirt has become tighter a...

Kil eunda has been highly spoken of. Admitting this statement to be-as it undoubtedly is-true, no Gippslamlor r.ht-uld forget Inverloch. It is indeed time that Gippslanders got a "hustle on," and emphasised the - value of Gippsland. It is" a crying shame that there is no railway to Inverloch. The 'extension of the railway to Inverloch would add to the im provement of Wonthaggi. A few yearr. ago there was a local a...

WESTERN PORT HISTORY. TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

WESTERN PORT HISTORY. TO THE EDITOR I'OWLETT EXPRESS. Sir,-Please allow me to supply the fol lowing notes on above:-Surgeon George Bass entered and explored the Port in 1798, he remained nearly a fortnight. In 1801 Lieutenant Grant further ex plored the locality and discovered the river Bass. He built a hut, cleared and cultivated some au-ps of land on Churchill Island. This is said to have beui the first attempt to settle ment and agriculture in Victoria. Lieutenant Murray made a further visit near the end of the same year. It is said that the French attempted" .to make a settlement at Corinella, but soon left. At this stage Hovell comes into the stoiy. In company with Hamilton Hume, he had reached Corio Bay at the end of 1S24. Hovell main tained that they had reached Western Port, and on returning to Sydney his. statement was accepted in preference to that of Hume, who said the bay reached by them was Port Phillip, The authorities in Sydney thought it would be wise to make a settl...

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents under this heading. -Ed.] (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPKESS.) Sir,-I do not know whether "Two of a Trade " is pleased or displeased at my entrance into the Hovell v. San Rerao controversy. I do, however, know he is at variance with such, Aus tralian historical authorities as Pro fessor Scott, Henry Gyles Turner and Henniker Heaton when he insinuates that Plovell never saw Westernport. Has it not been proved that, although Hovell might have been wrong in his * dispute with Hume about the proper ! geographical position of Westernport 1 when ihey journeyed together to what i is now the State of Victoria, he un- j doubtedly was at Westrnport on a sub- i sequent expedition ? Perhaps "Two of, a Trade " knows more about the his- j torv of Victoria than Scott, Turner or i Heaton. Even if this be so, it does | not demonstrate that a name so desti- . tute of originality and gratitude as San Remo should be retain...

COMMONPLACE. The most commonplace person we meet, if his life were truly told, would become interesting to us all. Let us call 110 nian common or unclean. In every man are unexplored abysses of possible conviction, hope lore. In every man ther is an inextinguishable sense of duty which may be aroused and which may rnako of him a hero and a martyr. In every man is the capacity for inspiration, for saing divine truths, and speaking with the tongue of men. and angels. j

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

FOR WOMEH "Ainbrosine.") Spring is in full possession. Every one is talking of the new contour. Everyone is wondering if it will suit lier. And everyone is wondering which is tho chief hall marking feature-hat, blouse or skirt. It is because every thing is so essentially new. The \vnr swept tho designers off their feet. They had to run a number of continuances. | having recovered: their feet, they set about fresh creations, and like one who goes back to an unfinished task after too Jong an interval, they were unable to pick up the old threads. In 110 other way can I account for m many radical changes at the. one time. Ex ceedingly little., can be carried forward unless with considerable alterations. A cablegram has reached us-"Tho great dames of England forming a league to wear their frocks as long as possible." La Mode evidently anticipated them and out-dated overything.
