He was an active worker, and took great interest in several social activities, and when meetings were poorly attended Mr Ball was always one of the few. Owing to ill-health he has disposed of his business to Mr L. MacKenzie, and gone to the city.

THE STRUGGLING COCKY. S.'ro TaiC DITOR O TUH ADyERTIS?R. Sir,-Kindly allow me' space in your paper .to describe a disgraceful scene witnessed by many in the main street of Yarra Glen in front' of one of the busiest stores. There was a dray drawn by two roan horses with (1 would say) one ton of bonedust on the dr.ay, stuck down to the axle. I was on my way tp the Point to Point Steeple at Yering. I did not return home via Yarra Glen, but I' heard since he got out all right by unloading every bag. BHe was a poor struggling cocky frori Dixon's Creek who had just delivered a load pf potatoes to the railway station and was back loading manure for his next season's crop.

THE BOW DEN'S SPUR FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 September 1922
THE BOW DEN' SPUR FAILURE. Sir, will you alloir me to reply briefly' to the voluiiinouns correspondenrcel-on this subject by Mr .Blann and his friends. Of this correspondede generally,, it may be said that what was true was irrelevant, and What was relevant was untrue. Mr Brain thinks it woold be more gentlemanly to blame some one other than Mr Mann : and sqnme of the other correspondents, including Mr Mann himself, blame Cr Hewitt. .Moat popld will think it more gentlemanly to krsp to the facts than to hlame Cr Hewitt for an expenditure which he consistently opposej. The connection of the Strathewen Progress Association with the matter has nothing to do with the respective merits of the two candidates, which was the pint at issue. There can be no doubt, either. that Mr Mtann was" to blame for this waste of public money. or that Cr Hewitt did every thing he could to prevent it. I heard Mr Mann at a council meeting pushing the pro ject for all he was worth, and it was clear, from wha...

This is now the third occa sion in recent years on which ratepayers. have shown both intelligence and keenness in municipal matters. Some three year+ ago the then sitting member for the North riding was rijrcted;-and Cr Hewitt elected in his place as a protest against the serious state of the finances. The municipal banker, if not actually dunning for his money, had been having "heart to heart" talks with council lors about the state of the shire overdraft. This degrading state of affairs was put a stop to, when it was seeni by Cr Hewitt's election. that ratepayers would na longer toTarate it.
