Told His Last Yarn. A very old identity of Toolern Vale, in the person of John Patterson, died at the residen'ce .of Mrs. G. Beaty, Sunshine. Deceased had lived there for the past 50 years or more. For the past .20 years he had been in the employ of Mrs. Beaty, who removed about a year ago. HI-e had a large and varied stock of stories and anec dotes about men and the times he had known, both here and in the North of Ireland, where he origi.nally hailed ifrom. He was fond of collecting an audience and telling a yarn, and his humour was such that no one could help being amused; at the end be would usually say, "I'm the one that can tell you to make you laugh, and if you can laugh heartily once a day, you'll never need a doctor." John's recipe for good health was, per feet in his case, for he was 90 when he died, and had scarcely known an hour's sickness.-Bacchus Marsh "Ex press." |ee,), I,,ggaIghIIIInI, lleBI laeIgIImmIIISuI guII.IUlgUglIeIogIt alemP4

FOOTBALL3 Sunshine v. Footscray Juniors By "Wing." Saturday proved a brilliant dlay\for the favoured winter sport. There were pIrcably six to seven hundred spectators towards the finish of the game at Footscray. 'Shine were un doubtedly defeated, )but bright pros pects are ahead for the future. Foot scray, having the benefit of experience in this better class of football, were able to teach us a lesson, which will, .no doubt, he beneficial, as the selection committee are in a position to note our weak points. Players inr both clubs showed signs of xtremne ex haustion. Many players, oel receiving the ball after a scrimmage, were al most too exhausted to put it to any advantage. This alone is an- out standing? point that that more vigorous training is required all round. The local team was openly commented upon as being the backbone: of a good, fast and solid team. One of the chief failings was to allow the opposing players to Wander about on thrir own, instead of making it a practice...

L1_ has nailed its flag to the mast, and declared bold and strong for a borough. The transition from a shire to a horough differs from the cvolu tion of a borough into a town or a town into a city. In the case of the borough it means an alteration in the boundaries of the municipality, and the movement must take its ge ncsis from the householders interes ted. Generally speaking, shire coun cillors are apathetic, if not directly cpposed, to any alteration. The average age of a shire councillor dc notes conservatism; his occupation is generally conducive to a dislike for change or violent reform. At any rate he is not expected to take a lively interest in a movement which may mean for himself his quietus as a public representative. It is no won der, therefore, that the members of the Braybrook Shire Council are tak ing no active part in the movement towards ...

A Few Words About Bill Burnside By Les. Searle. Come, listecn,"'friends, and I will tell about a pal of mine, Who lives in a Humpy just 'longside the Sunshine railway line. You know the chap I speak about; he's known both far and wide; Got a sixteen marble with all the girls, It's Fireman Bill' Burnside. .Now, in this little town of ours stands our Fire Station grand, And Burnside says he reckons it's the finest in the land. In this. I will not bhack him up, and i'm not ashamed to tell; If the Fire Bell goes nobody knows; they never hear the bell. Now, Burnside tells a story, and this is how it went, How he, Chris. and a couple more saved the Soldiers' Settlement. "It was just like this." Bill said to me, "I was having a lovely snore, Suffering a bad recovery from a party the night before. I was dreaming of Euroa town, a place I know so well. When I wakened up with a terrible start at the sound of our Fire Bell. I jumped from bed with a mighty bound, and in less than half a tick I s...

St. Mark's Church of England [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 3 May 1924

St. Mark's Church of England On Sunday last the Patronal Festi val was held at St. Mark's Church of England, and in the evening the ser vice took the form of an 'Anzac com memoration service. There were good con.gregations at the services. These two celebrations were able to be coupled, owing to the fact that St. Mark's Day falls on April 25, which is also Anzac Day. The sermon. in the morning was bas6d upon the text, "Speaking the truth in love." : At the Anzac comme moration service the vicar, in the ad dress, based his words on the text re ferring to the "box of precious oint ment." Just as men of old complained at the waste of the precious ointment, so to-day men complained of the waste of human life at Gallipoli. But as the sweet perfume of the ointment filled the house at Bethany, so the sweet savour of the sacrifice of our brethrce filled the whole world. At Gallipoli men met death not with the look of fear, but with the look of triumph, as death was merely the portal through...

NURSERY RHYMES TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 3 May 1924

NURSERY RHYMES TO-DAY. Little Miss Muffit Sat on a tuffet, Weeping and moaning her fate, When " Gasper" espied her, Then smiled and glad-eyed her And gave her last week's "'Advo cate." Ding-dong-dell, Hark ! the fire bell! What a noise it made, But where's the brigade ? Theyr'e not about, See ! the fire's burnt out! Isn't it--well Ding-dong-dell. I love Councillor Dempster, He's dark afid so small, That standing beside him The gate posts look tall. He's got "' nuts" on the sweeper Who cleans drains-when? please say ; So for him he proposes A nice holiday. A dignified Councillor sat in the Shire Hall Smoking his pipe and yawning that's all, When someone to him 'Gasper's' proverbs did tell, He jumped from his seat and be gan to raise-well, well, well.

To those who happen to be acqulaiinted withli the actual facts of tlie casec, the opinions expressed gencially by the farmer make onei wonder from what source he has gained such erroneous ideas.

THE BRUTAL BEER BOTTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 3 May 1924

THE BRUTAL BEER BOTTLE. A very serious and unpremeditated assault was perpetuated .by a party of eight or nine larrikins' at Footscray railway station immediately after the football match. Armed with bottles they attacked the Sunshine young men as they were about to enter the train on their way home. The affray took place at the foot of the ramp, and there was a crowd of people there at the time, including a num ber of women and children, and. al though serious injuries were inflicted, it is a wonder more damage was not done. It is difficult to ascertain what was the motive which actuated the attack, but it is thought the attack is in some way connected with bitter feeling shown to Sunshine cadets on their periodic visits to Footscray, when they are frequently stoned. As a result of the assault a young man named Masson received such in juries as necessitated his removal to hospital, where he still remains. The sinews of his arms have been severed by glass. A young man named Vinon ha...
