ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 6 August 1914
ROSSETTI ANC THE SALMON. The enthusiasm of genius leads to strange and curious happenings at times, and the story which is told by Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous artie, about his frIend Rossetti in his "R': mnutiiscences" illustrates in an amusing manumer the later's thmoughtlessncs': when he came in contact witlt anything which aroused his interest. At one time RossettH had all the en thusiasmn of the beginner for collecd ing china. "lie dined one evening withm friends who followed his lead in the matter of china, to such good pur pose thati the whole dinner was served in beautiflti specimens, and for thme better disglay of these was set oumi on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dislt, evidently a precioum example. When the cover was re moved, Rossetti started, loaned over to examine the dish, took it in botl hands, turned it upside down to see the marks on the back. leaving the sat muon on the tableclotlm, and exclatme,1, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow!'

Gilray pressed a litle closer to the two women, he was anxious to hear what was passing between them. He was doing now what he would have scorned to do a year or so ago. His debts and his desperate troubles were sapping the moral fibre of the man. Ho was so nervously eager to get to the bottom of thlis mystery that his gen tlemanly instincts were crushed out. Apparently he stood raptly contem plating one of the pictures on tihe wall. Ever and again words came to him, but hlie could make very little of them! Then he started. Nitnon Desterre was talking. Just for a nloment she seemied to forget herself for her voice was rlaised eager ly. "'Your esteemed father will never have enough." she explained. "It is a growing disease, this money-making.

OFFICER-BEACONSFIELD ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 6 August 1914
OFFICER-BEACONSFIELD ROAD. Recently the residents of the little hamlet of Officer, on the Gippsland road, between Beac- onsfield and Pakenham, went to considerable trouble and expense to secure a road through the ranges to Beaconsfield Upper, and amongst the more prominent workers was Mr Peterson, storekeeper. At the ordinary meeting of the Berwick Shire Council on Saturday, Cr Henty moved that the road be named Petersen road. If ever a man deserved to have a road named after him Mr Petersen did. No one had done more to get it. He doubted if they would have had the road but for him.-Cr James seconded the motion.-Cr Martin stated that while he did not wish to depreciate the work done by Mr Peterson he thought the matter should be settled at a public meeting of the ratepayers. The motion was carried. Ihe compliment was well deserved, as Mr Peterson left no stone unturned to secure the road, which will not only be a short cut from some of the back country, but will open up a beautifiul...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
TO THE E'DIT'OIi. Sir,--In your report of the last Cranbourne Shire Council's meeting, I noticed that Crs Herkes and Lloyd complained of my method of con ducting sales in the Cranbourne market. With regard to complaint maldc by Cr Herkes, I beg to say that on the day drapery was sold in the market ring all sales were com pleted at 4.8 p.m. Is that too late ? \Vith regard to Cr Lloyd's remarlks re a rumor of my buying in the market, that, as I told C- Lloyd in the ring, is not a fact. It was my father who was buying. I freely admit that he was there at my re quest, but I am sure that Cr Lloyd and all others interested will admit that, as auctioneer, my duty to the sellers necessitates that 1 put as many and as keen buyers as possible into t'le field. Surely no sellers ob ject. So far I have not heard any complaints of my methods from the sellers, but if any are dissatisfied with or have any doubts of my methods, I will be only too pleased to see them. As to " driving busi ness away,"...
CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-.Whilst reading the report of the Cranbourne Shire Council meet iag in your last issue, I noticed that Crs Herkes and Lloyd find fault with the way in which Auctioneer Gar lick conducts sales. Whilst I agree wvith Cr Herkes when he says that sales of drapery and sundries should not be allowed to unreasonably pro tract sales, I cannot help thinking that his comment must have been in *spired by someone more interested than himself, since, to the best of my recollection, ill sales were over by 4.30 on the day that drapery was sold. As for Sr Lloyd's complaint regarding auctioneer's (rumoured) buying-I for one would like to know how that would drive away business even supposing it were true. I have an idea that Mr Garlick kniows pretty well which side his breai is buttered and that if he did buy he would not pay more for stuff thaa it was worth, and if he dosn't do that, who is hurt ? I think only those who wish to get stuff for less than it is worth....
