Insecticide. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 15 March 1901
Insecticide. Suddenly, as the good ship swept before the tempest, land was seen directly ahead. A moment latei slie wa?s upon the rocks, and the crui l ??;waves were goring her sides like the horns of an angry bull. The shrieks and curses of the human freight mingled with the howling gale. A slini man with a sandy goatee shouted through the storli. "Captain--- Bu Bffeted and d beaten, his voice rose above the tnimtnt., -"what .cast is that ?" "The Cannibal islands," came the hoarse reply. "Are you positive it isn't _We Jersey?" "Positive." "Because," explaineil the slim man, "I'd rather drown than go ashore when it was a sure case of beiing e?tcn.'" Saying whitch h climnbed into the life boat, and the Iighp of hope was in his coun tenance.--Dtroit News-Triibune.
Deeper and Deeper. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 15 March 1901
Deeper and Deeper. There is only one way out of dishonesty, and thatjis to tell the truth. The process of "lying out ofit," so called, is only asure way of getting more deeply mired. Thisis well illustrated by the following story: A man of doubtful reputation was on his way honme one night and came across a pile of planks which for some reason had been unloaded upon the roadside. He couldn't, or thought he couldn't, resist "the tempta tion to steal one of them. He could not go through the village with it and so'took ab ut across the fields. By and by in the gathering dusk he waudered into a boghole and sank in the mire. The more he struggled the deeper he sank, un til, getting alarmed, he cried lustily for help. His shouts brought a neighbor with a lantern. "WVlihy, Jones, what does this mean?" asked the good Samiritan. "How in the world ctnme you here?.'' "I was in a hurry to get home,". said the thief, "and so I cut across. Then I got into this ,bog. The more I tried to pull mysel...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 15 March 1901
TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. Sln.-Mr. Stott, one of the Candidates for Mernda Electorate, has claimed by public advertisement that he is the " selected Ministerial Candidate." As a fact there are no Ministerial Candidates selected anywhere, and certainly none has been chosen for Mernda. If Mr. Stott disputes this statement ,ill he be content to submit the question to the members of the Ministry-those in Victoria if lihe pre fers-or will he publish the sanction of any Minister for his statement. If not, and he still publishes himself as the " selected Ministeral Candidate," the electors will know what to think of him. If Mr. Stott cannot prove his statement, the only course open to him as an honor able man is to publicly withdraw it. Yours truly, ROBERP HARPEUI. Mr. Robert Harper will address the electors at Yarra Glen on Monday. the 18th inst., at 8 o'clock, and on Tuesday, 19th inst.,.at Ringwood 3 p.m. and Fern Tree Gully at 8 p.m.

MR. HUNTI AT HEALESVILLE.

He did so because his appear ance there was due to the fact that he was seeking ...

The Guardian. PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1901. GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 15 March 1901
PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1901. GENERAL NEWS. The Minister of Railways on Thurs- day last traversed the route of the proposed Toolangi railway, and was much impressed with the vast timber resources that would be opened up by the construction of a railway, but, as in the case of other similar applica- tions, he informed the settlers that he would have to consider the merits of all the lines brought under his notice -several of which he had not yet seen, -before deciding which one he would first remit to the Railways Standing Committee. On Friday afternoon, Mr. Trenwith, accompanied by his secretary, arrived here by special train, when he was met at the station by the president of the shire, and Crs. Boone, Bailey, Furmston, Sheehan, and Mr. Banks. After the formal introductory remarks, Cr. Sloss (president) informed the Minister that £2000 had been placed on the Estimates last year for improve- ments to the Healesville railway station buildings, but nothing had...
THE TRIUMVIRATE AND THE REPORTER. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 22 March 1901
-- o THE TRIUJ.V1RATE AN)D THE pl ---- 0--- 5 An extraordinary interview, or Wi rather series of interviews, took place tl recently at Hawkslurn. When the re porter called on the Slherer family at. their well appointed residence, 4 Irene Place, Hawkslurn-one of Melbourne's i fashionable suburbs, adjacent to Toorak a -he was extended a cordial welconme. "'I have come," said he, ' to solicit i particulars of certain momentous events which I hear have lately taken place in this family circle." '" With pleasure," said M1Ir. Sherer heartily. " L .t us begin with my son Horace." Horace was then called in and proved to be a bright, intelligent la l full of health and good spirits. About him Mr. Sherer said : "'Some time ago Hlorace began ,to lose control of his limbs; and "later was - unabl? even to raise oou to his mouth, having to be fed like an infant.' His" speech left him, and for over a ~nonth he could not utter a word. He was unable to walk steadily ; his legs, arms1 and body swayed...
PUNCH PICKINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 22 March 1901
PUINCII PICKINGS. Mr. James Hardie, M.P. for Methyr Tydvil in the House of Commons, the man in the rag, hat has given notice of: his intention to move that the proposed grant of £20,000 to meet the expenses of the Australian tour of the Duke and Duchess of York be reduced to £1000. Mr. Hardie is a Labor member and a rampant radical of the kind that impart a terrific political significance to their clothes, and hold that a clean white shirt is a badge of aristocracy, and a starched collar the emblem of a bowel less plutocrat. Although Kitchener hates news papers, he is said to owe everything to a newspaper correspondent. Kitchener was on leave in Egypt when the Arali Pasha trouble broke out. He perceived clearly enough that he would lose a great chance if he had to go, and was in a stew about it. The newspaper man advised him to telegraph to the London War Office that, unless he. re ceived notice, he would assume that his leave was extended. Kitchener did so. An answer came that he m...
SIR GEORGE TURNER'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 22 March 1901
SIR GEORGE TURNEI'S SPEECH. The following are interesting items from the Federal Treasurer's speech at St. Kilda on Monday: He hoped a larger area than 100 miles would be obtained for the federal capital. He would like to see a thou sand miles, and the land would pro duce revenue for the Commonwealth Government. South and West Australia have woman suffrage. He thought it would be absurd if the other colonies did not follow the example. If Victoria had freetrade on the lines suggested, it would mean that Victoria would receive £600,000 or £700,Q000 less than at present, and would have to lesson its expenditure by that sum, or impose direct taxation. Our income tax only brought in £180,000. New South Wales was in a different position to Victoria, because it enjoyed a land revenue of £2,500,000 a year, as against £400,000 raised in Victoria. Our total annual imports were valued at £18,000,000, and of that amount £6,000,000 only were dutiable, the re maining £12,000,000 being admitted f...
"THE GRAND OLD FLAG." THE HOISTING CEREMONY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 22 March 1901
"THE GRAND OLD FLAG." THE HOISTING CEREMONY. TO THE EDITOR OF TILE GUARDIAN. Sir, - My proposal to hoist the " Union Jack" over all the State schools of Victoria (upon the occasion of the opening of the first Australian Com monwealth Parliament by His Royal Highness the Duke of Cornwall and York) was at once so cordially res ponded to by all classes of the public as to warrant an attempt being made to get all the States to join in a sinmi lar movement. To this end I sub mitted the proposal to the Hons. the Premiers and Ministers of Education of New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, and Tasmania, the result being that they all heartily supported the idea, and promised to carry out the necessary arrangements in their respective states. I have therefore now great satisfaction in advising that on the 9th May (upon a signal to be given by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall and York) a message will be flashed throughout the length and breadth of the Comm...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 22 March 1901
CRICKET. In order to try and encourage this pastime, and to establish the local club on a sounder financial basis than hitherto, it has been considered ad visable to fix a few unimportant en gageiments locally so that the young untrained might be afforded the chance of learning some of the rudiments of the game. "Certainly, the idea is a f good one, and it is encouraging to ob serve the interest which is now being g taken in these rival contests, and the c anxiety of the players to " break their k duck," and if they but persevere in ti their desire to improve themselves in t the cricket field, it is quite probable that a really good team will be avail able next season, On Saturday last a ti match was arranged with Coranderrk a on the local reserve, and the Healesville a team was mostly made up of new players, but the visitors were strongly represented, the consequence being that a the former were defeated badly. A t very interesting game was played, how ver, the chief features of wh...
YARRA GLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 22 March 1901
YARRA GLEN. The annual State school excursion from Yarra Glen and district was held recently at Brighton Beach. From an early hour excursionists began to as semble on the Yarra Glen station, and shortly after 8 a.m. the special train, decorated with dozens of flags, steamed out of the station with about 360 people on board. Brighton was reached soon after 10 o'clock, and in a very short time, the beach was alive with children wading after shells, sea-weed, and other treasures. The beautiful ti tree reserve made a good picnic ground, and full advantage was taken of its numerous shady nooks. The day, though warm, could not have been better for bathing, boating, and yacht ing, and these amusements were greatly enjoyed. During the day lollies, kindly donated by Mr. Allen, Mrs. Rhimes, and Mr. Dawborn, were dis tributed, as was also an abundant supply of fruit given by Messrs. Hub bard, Fletcher, and others. Brighton was left at 6 p.m. and Yarra Glen was rerched shortly after 8 p.m. All ...
