THE SIMPLETON. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 10 October 1884

A case which came before tile Colling wood City Court recently offered an apt illustration of the coolly impuldent manner in which some:n parents, uworthy- of tlhe name, foist their olffspring upon the State. A man namenl Wakeliel was charged wfth des.eting hi tivre chillren, and inl the course of the investintion one witness said that the defendant was " too muchl of a gentle man to work." This bright specimcn of a father had been employed for seventeen years at the Yarra Bend Asylium, durinr which time lie was in receipt of a good salary, andl only lost his situation on account of his insobriety. lie then comes before thle court and tells the magistrates that lie is out of employment,- has no home for his children, and cannot support them. How such cases should lbe met it is extremely difficult to :say. o one can doubt that a fellow like \Wakefield should be snojected to severe punishmenit, which his mean unmanly and lazy conduct hflly merits, and which might serve to deter other ...

LONGWOOD JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 10 October 1884

LONGWOOD JOTTINGS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) On the morning of 7th inst. a very disastrous fire took place in a cottage, a four-roomed wooden one, valued at be tween £70 and £80, owned by Mr Henry Richey, landlord of the Commercial Hotel, Longwood, which was situated in Old Longwood, on the old Sydney Road, occupied by Mr. W. Hexter and family. It happened about 11 a.m., the attention   of Constable Wm. Boulton being drawn thereto by the screams of Mrs Hexter, when he went over and found the house on fire, which commenced in her bedroom. The cause of the ignition was owing to the little children playing with matches, which caught the bed curtains, and the walls being lined with paper the whole place was consumed in a very few minutes leaving only the brick chimney standing. Part of the paling fence was also burnt. Fortunately all the children were saved, but not without some difficulty. The only furniture saved was Mrs Hexter's bed and bedding. The loss to them will amo...

A BIG STRONG BOX [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 17 October 1884

A BIG STRONG BOX The construction of Mr. Vanderbilt's treasureliouse in New York is described in minute detail by one of the French papers, which begins by calling the exterior building itself as "formidable fortress of masonry and iron.' This name is not, however, wholly inapro p iate, if it is true that no force,however numerous and well armed, would be at all likely to take it by storm without the aid of heavy artillery. The foun dations -of the house are laid, it is said, on a solid rock, and the front wall is five feet thick, the side walls measur ing three feet- All these are composed solely of brick and facing stone. There is no woodwork whatever about the place, all the supports, sashes, and fram ings being of iron or steel, and the. doors and windows of iron, marble and plate glass. The sanctuin of this abode is, of course, the strong-room, 142 feet .by 36 feet. in dimicnsions, composed alto gether of iion isnd steel, and having four doors, aclh of which weighs 8,000 ]Lb. T...

LIFE IN THE CITY. CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 17 October 1884

LIFE IN TI-IE CITY. CCIAPTER V. But leaving the olfices we find ourselves r in Collins-streetin :a region of brass plites, polished bell liiandles, door knobs and knockers. It is the region dedicated to Esculapius, Galen' Hippocrates and in :considerably to Ifalinemnis. Here is the answer of humanity to the question "Is life worth living for? If it were not where would be the need of the thousand and one gentlemen who live in these "white •stone fronts," and whose carriages and liveries are ever and anon seen flashing about on missions of life-death, and plunder. The city has a healing force strong enough in all coniscience and on the plates as one passes distinguished names are to be seen in irofusion. Here is the home of the famous Dr. Diamonds, the best abused and best liked medico in Australia. Between his friends and enemies--and hie has plenty of each-there is a wide diffeience.: His skill, . his diamonds and his champagne are are however all very great and potent facts. Not f...

At about I1. o'clock one of the heaviest and most continuous showers which has been experienced for a long time past descended, followed at intervals during the afternoon by pretty co pious downpours. The grounds were rendered very sloppy inu consequence, but the majority of those present being farmers and their ftmulies, while ac knowledging the discomfort brought about by the ine:cmency of the weather; viewed the matter as in the light of a blessing, and consoled them selves wi the thought that while they were getting, wet, their tanks were being repleuished and their crops and grats nourished by the long looked for rain. There must have been 2500 persons on the ground, so that per halps the elements did not debar manuy people from seeing the show. It cer tainly was apparent that the gentler sex of this agricultural comlnunity a...
