MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT ASSP CIATION. The ordinary meeting of the Alma road Congregational Young Men's Mutual-Impravement Association was held on Tuesday night. The chair was occupied by the Roy. E. Handel Jones, and there was a large attend ance of members. A debate, entitled '89hould education hbe free, secaular, and compulsory," was opened by Mr. Pitt in the affirmative. He considered that the Bible, ii taught in stato schools, would do more harm than good, owing to the fact that the various sects, being largelyropresented, it would lend to disruption. Mr. W. Simpson, in arguing for the negitive, considered that the Bible should be read in the schools, but witlhoutcom ment or explanation, allowing the scholars to form their own opinions. and leaving parents to use their discre tion as to whether they allowed their childron to stay to the lesson or not, and by no-means making it compul sory. The chairman having summned up, a division was taken, the result being in favor of the affirmat...

A LADY'S LETTER. Windsor, May 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 5 June 1889
A LADY'S LETTER. Windsor, May 27. My Dear Cousin--Again I commence to give you the weekly budget of "gossip" that I have collected for your benefit, b?t as I have been confined to the house with the fashionable cold, I have not much that can prove news to you. I paid a second visit to the Grosvenor, last week, and noticed how poor the attendance is, although not quite as bad as that at the orchestral concerts in the exhibition. I Indeed was told that the receipts would not pay for the cost of advertising. I supposo you have seen the Victorian Grosvcnor I . Did yenou notice in the picture that is called "Not jealous, but, being wrought, perplexed in the extreme," by Aehton how absnurd is the space behind the chair for the gentleman to stand in I I do not profess to be a judge of pictures, but this I noticed without any one drawing my attention to it. I saw something in one of the papers the other day which ssrprised me greatly; doyou remember our ohl school-mate, Bessie Vickery, of D...

MAKE A NOTE OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 5 June 1889
MAKE A NOTE OF IT. For suburban advertising the old well established local newspaper, which has bcome a necessity in every Ihole, is abnout the best medium. Such a paper invariably colntains, in every rssue, something tlhat is locally interesting, and is therefore eagerly loked for, circulates from hand to hand, anlld then is sent to some friend in the country The news columns of daily papers may only be hurriedly scanned, and the sheet theno thrown asideC but the local journal is tre? sured, and the demand for back copies of the lPrahrate Terlerajcb and St. Kilda .Adertiiserr is surprising. Many blsinces men seem to thinkl thlat, because a daily newspaper is supposed to have a wide cir culation, its advertising influence must be greater-forgetting that not one i n hun cdrcd readers over oven glance nt the closeuly packed columns of advertisemenelts in the dainlies, while the greater mujority of tho?ne who do look a'busencnless' notices are fiPr away from the loeality in whlichl tra...
