A Question [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 14 August 1915

A Question Is it 'cause we're simply soldiers, Or strangers in this land, That the Gipsies swarm around us SLike specks of desert sand? From first thing in the morning, It's the one incessant cry; " Egyptian Mail!" " Egyptian Times!" They pester you to buy. It's 'Appleis," it's "Ollangis," " You buy ;it? Cogalette?" They really are the most persistent Coons I ever met. When you're strolling round sight seeing, Along the different routes. A swarm of kids pursue you, Shouting: "Meister, clean it boots?" When you sit down for a whisky To put you in good mood, There's a whisper at your elbow; "Buy it; poste carte, vera good" You clear away well cussing, But you're soon bailed up out side With, " Muster, you go Pyramid? You want it donkey ride?" You've paid the cabby twice his fare; You've safely dodged the p'lice, The driver's voice pipes forth anon "Muster, give it Backsheese!" Just send a mob of Gipsies Across to Kaiser Bill; If they don't send him~off his nut I guess then nothing wil...

OUR LETTER BOX. THE LIGHTING OF ATHERTON ROAD EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 14 August 1915

OUR LETTER BOX. THE IIGHTING OF ATHERTON ROAD EAST. Sir,-The summary disposal of my suggestion re lamp corner Connell and Atherton roads by the Borough Council at their last meeting, as reported by you in your last issue, I think calls for a few remarks. Cr Hunt is reported to have said "We cannot be in iluenced by individual opinion." [ am not so narrow-minded as to make it a personal matter. My suggestion was for the benefit of the locality in general, and I ven ture to say many others are cf the same opinion as myself. The same councillor also said the lamp is needed where it is for ab solute safety. Safety for what or whom? The limp? I fail to see any other safety; certainly not for the pedestrians who traverse Atherton road, or for those who live down dark Lincoln avenue, and those in ConnelI road will benefit but little, as the lamp is behind a telephone post. The councillor is apparently the same in this matter as he is over the trees in Atkinson street-"does not care a rap"-...
