STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 17 December 1914

STRANCER THAN FICTION.: (BY PmTER.) Peter notes with some trepidation a letter in the "Observer" from Grant Hervey, notifying "those whom it con ceins"that Supreme Court writs are in the air, and one at least has fil'en. Peter remembers making some remarks about Grant -Hervey in the ccntribu tion in whieh he (Peter) made his de but to a dszzled public. If his memiory serves him it was to the effect that. Hervey was only paid £8 a week by "Truths," whereas Peter's espenves were paid by the "'Observer," which. there fore proved itself more enterprising than Johnnsie Norton's Paper. As most people gauge a man's wealth by what [be spends this would imply that Her. vey sas poorer than Peter, and if this deduction was correct fervey's Scotch descent is the only thieg that could save Ilims. Truth, which his hasnpered Petes's-operations thaDush life--s Vei table ancient ms-,iner's ah'atross compels him to admit that often there is nsst a penny in his pocket, despite the liberality of Isis c...

EARLY RECOLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 21 December 1914

EARLY RECOLLECTIONS. (By Historicus.) From time to time we have noticed a series of articles pub'ished in the "Argus" descriptive of interesting mat. ters that belong to the early days of the colony, The writer of these remin iscences is Mr. A. W. Grieg, who deals with the various subjects in a very accurate and comprehensive manner, showing a careful collection of useful records which makes it pleasant reading throughout. In a copy dated 27th June last there appeared a contribution from the same pen giving a detailed account of "Separation Day," referring to the period when Port Phillip was separated from New South Wales, and formed a new colony, now Victoria. Mr. Grieg's description of the demon strations that took place in Melbourne to commemorate the event is most amusing to the reader. It is not neces sary to treat further with the celebra tions elsewhere, but will confine a few. particulars in respect to what took place to we!come the new-born visitor by the residents of Portl...
