THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 15 August 1891

THE ELECTIONS, The elections had no special in terest for Yackandandah, as there was no contest in this riding, and the only excitement that prevailed was in the Kiewa Riding. For the previous few days tlie retiring member, Cr Macdonald, had been visiting the different portions of the riding, and delivering an account of his steward ship The Hnon Lane Exchange was made the burning question, and it was on his actions in connection therewith that the retiring candidate principally spoke. Mr Walker, the second candidate, did not hold any meetings, but contented himself with making a general 'canvass.' At the election 12 months ago the candidates were Messrs- D. Robinson (retiring) and J. Crosthwaite. The question then was the Exchange, and as Cr Robinson was returned with a good majority, tne present contest had been clothed with more interest, through the supporters of the road working hard to secure Mr Mac dorxald's return, and the opponents of the road striving to give weight to las...

The Road Exchange. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 15 August 1891

The Road Exchange. Cr Macdonald spoke at Dederang on Friday evening, and at Tawonga on Saturday afternoon. There was very little of a stirring character in Cr Macdonald's addresses at Dede rang and iawonga. we were ratner surprised to learn, however, that Cr Beatty went against the Huon's Lane exchange because Councillor Robinson taunted him with support ing it on account of his brother being interested. This statement is cer tainly not flattering to Cr Beatty. On a perusal of onr files we find that Councillor Macdonald's state ment is untrue ; either that or Cr Beatty did not make an honest and candid statement. Cr Beatty's reason (and we believe i€\ was on ac . P aV _ 1- ? ? i J.T ? X ? 1 J COtinr oi i ne ueavy cusi- iuuii *-uum have to be undertaken.

When finished, with a pair of sharp scissors cut away all the holland or plush left outside the pattern, and all that is in the spaces between the leaves and stems.

Soap Bubbles. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891

Soap Bubbles. The making of soap babbies is an interest ing employment of the philosopher as well &s of the child. The former finds muoh in the way of scientific interest attached to the operation, while the latter is generally ab sorbed in the matter as a pure piece of amuse ment. How to make the largest kind is told as follows : Next to white castile, the mottled castile gives the best results. The soap being ob tained, a friendly druggist must carefully weigh out 60 grains (for exactness in propor* tions is needful) for each ounce of water — that ifi.oue draohm (according to the apothe cary's weight of the old arithmetics)^ and when the weighing is done and the obliging druggist thanked for his kindneBB, th3 rest is plain sailing. A bottle with a sound cork is tbe next requirement. It muBt be large enough (o hold three or lour times the quan tity of solution you wish to make. Do not prepare too muoh at one time ; two onnceB of soap solution will be a good quantity, and fo...
