Greensborough. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
Greensborough. The advent of electric trains to Greensborough is already proving a big factor in bringing this beautiful district into prominence as a resi dential suburb. Not many years ago, the needs of the district were supplied by a service of three steam trains a day, and Greensborough was only regarded as a week-end or holi day resort. The journey to the city used to occupy an hour, with the change of trains at Heidelberg ; but this has now given place to the splendid present service by which the city can be reached in 35 minutes. Greensborough is but the same dis tance from the city as Sandringham, and nearer than Ringwood or Mor dialloc, and an appreciation of these facts, combined with the natural beauty of the district, is causing numerous enquiries for home sites. Greensborough has a Yan Yean water supply through the township, and electric light will shortly be available as the Morewell scheme passes within half a mile of the town. All these facts will mean increased popu...

MASONIC BALL. The Diamond Valley Masonic Lodge held their annual ball in the local hall on the 9,h inst. As this is the ball of the season in this dis trict it is looked iorward to for months, and when it arrives the night is too short owing to such an enjoyable gathering? The hall was beautifully decorated by the commit tee and lady friends under the direc tion of the noted iscenic artists (Messrs A. Haynes aid A. Gosstray). Music was supplied by Mrs. Mun ford's jazz band and was all that could be desired. The catering was left to Mr. Silk, of Greensborough, Wvho gave every satisfaction.

THOUGHTS. THE ROYAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
THOUGHTS. THE ROYAL SHOW. (By Mernda). Now that the Great Show is past and gone reflection brings many thoughts to an observant mind, and one of the first that occurred to me was the marvellous and capable man ner in which such a vast undertak ing was carried out, and that as far as I could see without a hitch. I feel sure that in Mr. Schweiger the Royal has one of the most capable and effective secretaries in the State. He never rests, never seems flurried, but is ever courteous in the execution of his duties and is a general favorite with the societies' patrons. What an object lesson is gained of the vast possibilities of this fair land when we view the almost un limited wealth we control if we will only develop, it. In produce we could easily be one of the great providers of the world, if not the greatest. For instance our wool is unbeatable, no finer wheat is pro duced, dairy produce of all kinds is Al, and fruit, with all its vast pos sibilities (if not hampered by ridi culous ...
Heavy Traffic. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
Heavy Traffic. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-Among the various items discussed at the last meeting of the Eltham Shire Council was the far reaching and important matter. of timber traffic, closing roads, and the enforcing of the Tyre Act. It is in teresting to notice the attitude to wards and the suggestions of some of the members of the council in re gard to this matter. As far as some of them are concerned the question could be settled by a stroke of the pen: " Close the roads against the heavy traffic, and let the affected ones get on the best way they can." ,TVhat does it matter to these coun cillors if scores of men and some with large families to support have their means of livelihood taken away from them for four or five months in the year ? If those who advocate this policy could be dumpt ed down in the other fellow's place for a while their attitude in the fu ture would be a far more reason able one. The question of roads and their maintenance is one which at this ti...

Correspondence. MONTMORENCY ROADS. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
Correspondence. MONTMOREN.CY ROADS. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-I have perused with interest in your issue of 12th inst. a letter from Mr Nicholson which, after all, is no reply to mine, but in my opinion is nothing more than a clumsy aueminpt by him to get out of a very unpleasant position. All that I am concerned about is why Mr Nicholson does not honor his ver Lal promise, subsequently confirmed by him in writing and the position of the land initialled by him on the l)lan of same. I am sorry to have again to tell 1Mr Nicholson he is in error when he states he is the 'only owner on the.east side that has fenced his land, etc. All the roads guaranteed by the council have been surveyed and fenced by the own ers. In fairness to Mr Nicholson I must admit he is the only owner who enjoys the distinction of having erected notices on his land warning persons that "Trespassers will be prosecuted." The other owners have done their best to facilitate access for passengers to and fro...
Montmorency. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
Montmorency, (From a Correspondent.) Great , indignation has arisen amongst a section of our community by the unprovoked attack in a ,city paper on the name chosen for the 'new station. -The article says "It is not likely to summon up to those who see it thoughts of great personages and great.deeds."' Some of the people think there are great personages amongst us, and the great deed of obtaining a new station deserves to be commemor ated by a sufficiently impressive name. The fighting instinct of Irishmen in the district has been. aroused, and they ask why they should be debarred from callitg the station what they like, or even plastering all the roads, streets and paddocks of the district leading to the station with sub-titles of ,he sta tion. The new station has proved a great success,, and is being largely used by the local residents, notwithstanding tlie name. There is a letter-box at the station, the local newsagent pro vides daily papers for passengers, and a postmistress has ...

QUEEN PONY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
QUEEN PONY. Cr. Andrew has donated a pony to the hall committee to be raffled, half proceeds going. to the respective Queens in the present carnival. It is anticipated that by this effort fair ly substantial sums will be placed to the credit of the respective re gents. Cr. Andrew has been a generous helper to various local functions, and it shows his interest in the locality generally. His generosity is much appreciated. In my report of the entertain ment given by the Girls' Social Club, I omitted to include the name of one of the most willing helpers. Mr. H. Lyon rendered most valuable as sistance in a'rranging the lighting effects, supplying the stage and foot lights. The effect produced was most appreciated. The secretary of the Eltham C.C. has been asked to re serve December 22 for a fancy dress cricket match. The proceeds from the effort will be de voted to the Public Hall funds. The secretary of the Eltham C.C. (Mr. D. J. McColl) announces that his club is holding a monster op...
WILD FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
WILD FLOWERS. Now is the time for gathering wild flowers. The hills around El tham afford the botanist ample scope for studying the various species of Australian wild flower. The com mon yet beautiful products of na ture, such as buttercups, sarsaparilla and clematis, are met with very easily, and the flower gatherer amply awarded for the tramp over the hills. Perhaps the most beautiful is the wild pink boronia, which is fairly plentiful and makes a suitable table decoration. It would be interesting to note how many species of flowers abound in our native woodlands.
