At the Waters' Edge, HURSTBRIDGE DIALOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
At;, the Waters' Edge, HURSTBRIDGE DIALOGUE. (By Observer). Last week's flood attracted the local residents as well as the visitors to see the swirling waters, and the conversation that passed on Sunday is surely an indication of what is in the' minds 'of'thd people as "to-th-ee fu ture. Althought I don't profess to be a "Chiel amang ye taken' notes," it dawned on me that some of the remarks might be of interest to your readers. Water was naturally uppermost in the minds of all, and a Bridge man said he understood that the coun cil was going to have water laid on. A Panton Hill-ite remarked that plenty has been laid on during Sthe past couple of days, and if it continued for three months the average man will be short of water in six months, notwithstanding the lesson he had last summer. He never seems to think of putting in another dam or an extra tank. A visitor replied that if they did they would have nothing to growl about, and he understood people in the country always wanted a ...

ELTHAM, THE FLOOD. (Fronm Our Own Correspondent.), } he 'recent heavy' ramlisii resulted in'a flood, which is a record 'one for 'the "district. ; The inaiii bidge' over the 'Diafxiond 'i'eeki' on the E Ileidel berg-road,'; felln ini at .one eind; and traffic wa `' stopped owing to the dangerous state" of. "the. foadwvay. It is estimated that' the: road' will be, closed for 'somhie time till repaire are. affected. ;, There were a great many rnotor cars held up on Sunday;- owing to the flooded state of th? back road way, which was the only other means of ingress to the town. The Glen Park bridge was floodi ed, 'but happily the rapid fall of the waters enabled the residents of that locality to suffer .little con venience. The people at Eltham Heights were forced' to utilize the bridge over the Greensborough-road as both the pedestrian and :vehicular bridges were flooded. 'Little daimage, has .occurred, although' the flood' will go; down in local history as the big flood of 1923.
DIAMOND CREEK. PHYSICAL CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 19 October 1923
DIAMOND CREEK. ----C- PHYSICAL CULTURE. (From Our Own Correspondent.) The Diamond Creek Physical Cul ture Club held their fifrst' annual display in the hall' on Saturday night, also a great demonstration by Clarence Weber. The hall was packed with an enthusiastic audience to witness the display of the newly formed physical culture club. Formed with the specific idea of keeping the young folk of the dis tict together and providing health ful recreation during the winter months the results achieved by the club justifies the statement that they have in every way achieved the de sired object. Messrs F. E. Whitaker and J. M. Young have voluntarily given up two nights a week to the training and tuition of the members, and the very excellent display which was given on Satur day night testified to their capabili ties, and despite the fact that the pupils have only been in their hands a little over three months the move ments were carried out in perfect time and almost faultlessly. The junio...

Christmas Hills. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
Christmas- Hills. (From a Correspondent.) The Christmas Hills Progress As sociation held its usual monthly meeting last Saturday night, 20th inst. The attendance was thoroughly representative of the best interests of the district, and it is en couraging to have to report that one and all displayed undoubted zeal and enthusiasm in the cause of progress. With the object of developing more speedily and readily the tim ber resources, a motor drag saw demonstration is being arranged and will be given in the course of a few weeks. It is thought-that such a de monstration may, in particular, lead to the development of the firewood industry, and, as the work of clear ing is made easier, it aught to ren der certain classes of country more readily available for week-end blocks. An exhaustive test of the value of the machine will be given by the Company's expert ; and a hearty invitation is extended to all who are interested to turn up.

WERE THEY FATED? [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
WERE THEY FATED ? The brief and chequered career of the giant airship, R 34, the first and only dirigible to cross ,the Atlantic, which recently became d total wreck during a gale, was so highly charged with peculiar coincidences that even those who are not superstitious may find in them some omens of her un kind fate. In the first place, R 34 was twin sister to R 33. The former was built oh the Clyde, the latter on the Tyne. Some years ago the two fastest ocean-going steamships, the Lusi tania and the Mauretania, w?cre built at the same two centres. In both cases It? Tyne ship still survives, i?.t the Clyde productions, on tne contrary, have been destroyed The Lusitania ;:as sunk, as every body knows, dunrn the war ; and her great Clyde sister of the air, R 34, has now also been wrecked. The times occupied by the ill-fated Lusitania and P 34 in their i;cct runs across the atraetic are almout i:I.n tical. :he rc .1rd of the LuTitania was four lays t?elve hours fourteen minute, ,'hat...
THE SORROWS OF GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
THE SORROWS OF GENIUS. Homer was a beggar ; Plautus turn ed 'a mill; Terence was a slave; Doethius died in jail; Paul Borghese had fourteen t'ade, and yet starved with them all; Tasso was often dis tressed for five shillings ; Bentivoglio was refused admittance into a hos pital he had himself erected.

Sir Walter Raliegh died on the scaffold ; Spencer died forsaken- and in want ; Melton sold his copyright of "Paradise Lost' for £15, in three payments, and fin ished his life in obscurity.

MONTMORENCY ROADS. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
MONTM1ORENCT ROADS. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-The recent letters of your correspondent, Mr A. H. Price, have become too personally insulting alto gether. Iwill not tronble to correct his many mis-statements. His opin ions do not interest me. Mr Price writes :-" I am quite satisfied to leave the matters in the hands of the committee of the trust to say whose statement is correct." I heartily en dorse that, and sincerely hope he will without delay call a meeting of that trust, when, in addition to any con sideration that meeting sees fit to give to the trifles Mr Price is trying to make such a fuss about, something of interest and importance could be un dertaken, that is, the procuring of an audited balance-sheet for presenta tion to the subscribers and provision for the payment of the debts of the trust.-Yours, &c., GEORGE C. NICHOLSON. Montmorency, October 25, 1923.
Correspondence. NORTH RIDING FINANCES. To the Editor of The Advertiser [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
Correspondence. NORTH RIDING FINANCES. To the Editor of The Advertiser Sir,-Cr. Campbell's imagination has run riot again ii*his latest attack on myself. In his first attack Cr. Campbell conjured up the delusion of a debt of £877 and "not one pen ny for works of any description" if we had a rate of 1/6 in the pound and only £143 as "a balance for works," if we put on another 1/- in' the pound-"the extra shilling," as Cr. Campbell called it. In his last letter he mentions an overdraft of £1200. Perhaps Cr. Campbell can yet inform us where he obtained this information. The secretary's official figures issued some six weeks, ago ought surely to have put an end to this absurdity on Cr. Campbell's part about the North riding finances. Such statements as "not a sixpence," "not a beau," "not a shilling" may be remarks sufficient to put off rate payers asking for urgent and neces sary works (while moreithan half our expenditure is taking place in :King lake each month), but they are a bad a...
Panton Hill. CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
: Panton- Hill, CONOERT. (From Our Own Correspondent.) Of late we have been favored with so many excellent musical entertain ments at Panton Hill, that it was feared by some that the'attendiance at the concert on Friday by the Diamond Creek Musical Society. would possibly fall short of what the excellence of the expected programme would: deserve; but the previous concerts only served to develop the musical education of the, people, and. whet their appetite for. futher indulgence of the pleasure to be obtained by hearing good, music. Vi usic may be defined as the art of translating mioods and emotions .into sounds, then reproducing these sounds to create similai feelings in others. This transference is a wonderful thing whereby pictures in the mind, or emo tions, are communicated to another mind by certain notes and harmonies. In this respect music imparts what cannot be expressed by language - something which is too delicate, elusive or subtle to be conveyed by speech. Possibly many...

Kangaroo Ground. PRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 October 1923
Kangaroo Ground, PRESENTATION. (From a Correspondent.) A social evening was held in the hall on October 24, the occasion be ing a presentation to Mrs and Miss Davies, both of whom had always been willing to assist in all our social life and sport, and they will be very much missed. Miss Davies has been in charge of the State school during the past six years, and has gained the affection and confidence of the children and esteem of the parents. Mr Nicholas, in presenting Miss Davies with a beautiful gold wristlet watch, on behalf of the ladies of Kangaroo Ground, referred to her many excellent qualities and the good she had done in many ways. Mr J. Bell, in an amusing little speech, replied on behalf ol Miss Davies. Mr Nicholas then presented Mrs Davies with a box of fine linen hand kerchiefs, to which she suitably res ponded. During the evening enjoyable items were contributed by Mrs Bell, Miss Bell, Mrs Andrews, Miss Groube, Miss Rudd, and Messrs C. Bell and A. Groube; a feature of...
