Upper Yarra Railway Communication. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
Upper Yarra IRailway Cominuni cation. NEVER, perhaps, was the policy of " taking things easy" and going very fully and care fully into every point'more justified than in the proposed line to Yarra Junction and Warburton. Four routes have been pro posed ; one, an impossible one, very long, from Croydon, which would ignore Lily dale altogether, and has nothing, so far as we can find out, to recommend it. A second was from Lilydale, along the valley of the Olinda Creek, with a big tunnel a short distance from Lilydale, which would pass, however, through Wandin; this was the proposed narrow gauge rail way route. Then a third was also found to be impracticable, going straight out from Lilydale, and the fourth route-the one recommended by the Legislative Coun cil from Coldstream - was thonuiht by some to be the solution of the difficulty. The great objection, however, to the Cold stream'line was that it would not tap that fine country about Wandin ; but, by a cir cuitous route, take the t...
Buxton. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
Buxton. On Sunday, the 20th, Harvest Thanks- giving was celebrated at the Buxton Church, which had been tastefully decor- ated by the ladies of the district. Mr. J. Chalmers Duff officiated, and delivered a very appropriate sermon on the occasion. Mr. Duff is leaving the district, and will hold his farewell service on Sunday next at 3.30. We are having beautiful autumn weather with mild frosts at night. It is to be hoped that we will get some rain soon, for it is sorely needed. It is rumored that thte Taggerty Hall will be opened in about a fortnight, on which occasion a grand plain and fancy dress ball is to he held.
Serious Assault on a Farmer. FOUR TO ONE THE ASSAILANTS ARRESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
Serious Assault on a Farmer. FOUR TO ONE THE ASSAILANTS ARRESTED. To be set upon by roughs and almost killed after going through nearly 60 years of life without accident to health or limb is one of the hardest experiences we know of. Such, though, was the fate of Mr. Geo. Batchelor, a farmer on the Horton River, N.S.W. who at 59 years of age, just when his strength would prove most valuable, became the victim of the attacks of those enemies to life and limb-Insomnia, Nervous Debility, Despondency, and Intense Suffering. He was rescued, however, by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. Our reporter, who found him ploughing, obtained the following par ticulars: " I think," said Mr. Batchelor, " my ease is one that should have all the publicity possible. I am 65 years of age, and have been resident in this district for about twelve years. Prior to my coming here, I had always en joyed the best of health, and I had e been accustomed to work very hard. I About six years ago, however,...
Pertinent Pars. "A snapper up of unconsidered trifles." [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 26 March 1898
* Pertinent Pars; [BY HAWK-EYE.] "A snapper up of unconsidered trifles.' " When ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise." I was enjoying a 'quiet smoke the other evening along one of the favorite footwalks of our township, when I witnessed a charming little comedy between two characters, and although there were no scenic effects it caused great amusement to one or two others congregated besides myself. --A young man and maiden fair stood in side one of the lighted windows of a homely looking cottage, and evidently forgot all about the blind being up. He reached over and imprinted a kiss on her dimpled cheek, to which the fair one made no objection. Em boldened by the result, he again and again repeated the experiment,. the spectators laughing and applauding every osculation. I don't knowv whether the young man was trying to break a record, but he certainly broke up the crowd, for they laughed till they could not laugh any more. Young man next time please see that the blind is down,...

A Terrible Wreck. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 2 April 1898
A Terrible Wreck. The inhabitans of Fiji Islands the other day discovered that there was. a terrible wreck ot their shores. Yet .We discover wrecks in our midst every day. We refer to the wrecked, wretched lives that could be imade bright and happy if the gredt renredy, Bile Beans, were used at thd right time. How is it, dean 'reader 1 Do you feel miserable, disagreeable, want to aree'and' disagree: with? eueryoqe; everything appears to annoy you,:,you are not satisfied with yourself, and you consider.friends a bore. If you are in this state you have a liver that is in a state of ill-health. Those gloomy headaches, depression, and forebodings of evil are the direct result. Bile Beans are what you need; they have a reputation in America that has caused their sales to exceed probably that of any other pharmaceutical preparation sold ' tid : The best illustration of the great manner in which they are meeting with favor in this country is the fact that the Sydney agerits can not get, th...

lMarysville. A meeting was held here, when it war decided to hold a foot racing sports meet-' ing instead of horse racing on Easter Mon day. This will not interfere with the plaic and fancy dress ball the same night. The gentleman (Mr. Sterling) sent by mines department to report on the reefs at Walkers, fifteen mile house (Chester and Locke), and Stockmnans Reward, Big Rirer, was here on Friday last and returned to town on Saturday. He was very favorably impressed with what he was shown at Stockman's, where he stayed on Friday night, and also with what he saw on Chester and Locke's lease. He proves conclusively what was known to us before, namely, that the two lines are distinct and are run ning parallel with each other; supposed distance about four miles apart, ergo: There is plenty of room for prospectors to find something in between these two rich gold Bering lines. The best yield on the Big River or any of the creeks up here in the alluvial way is five ouinces for two-weeks by ...
