TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 13 April 1917

TO TIE EDITOR (P THE ADVERTIBER. Dear Sir,-- a, ha, ha. Really, Mr. Editor, I could not help laughing at Cr. It. 1). Taylor's feeble attempt to reply to my previous letters; in fact, Inlmost" bubblel;l up and burst," when I reached the end of it. I thought Cr. Taylor wonh'l have rmade out a bettor defence for his misdemeanoura. Hlowever, I will put the folloswing questions to him, and if hb can prove to mo by nutking a declaration before a J.P., that they are, as hI states, a " tissue of lies," I am willing to donato £3 to the Eltham Red Crosa Society. Thiere you are, Cr. Taylor, thcre's an opportunity for niu to augment the funls of the lRed Cross Society:-Is it a lie that your crilppiledl horse has been roaming about the :lthami roads ? Is in a li tihat it got into a garden? Is it a lie that it has invaded ia certain rate. payer's stablo andeaton lhis clhaff?

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 13 April 1917

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Dear Sir,—Through your paper we wish to contradict a statement made by "Rate- payer" in your issue of the 30th March in regard to Cr. Taylor not fulfilling his pro- mise in forming a working bee for putting in our crops. I wish to state that Cr. Taylor had formed the bee, and all were willing to do their share, but we declined the kind offer for various reasons. We are pleased to say that since our brother went to the front Cr. Taylor has been a friend to assist us in every way he could, and in our opinion, "a friend in need is friend in-   deed." Yours, &c., MARY A. SHILLINGLAW. ADA M. SHILLINGLAW.

STRATHE\VEN, -:o:- (PROS A CORRESPONDENT.) The Strathewen State School picnic was held on' Thursday, 5th inst. 'This being the first affair of its kind yet held in this locality, and judging by the success attained and the apprecia tion shown by the numerous scholars,. the organjser and her able committee will not backward in coming forward again. The opening ceremony wa. performed by Mr. George Brain in a pleasing manner. Tables had been erected in the schoolroom and the display of silver and glassware filled to. overflowing with good things, combined with the numerous decorations, would have done credit to the most up to date city banquet, Considerably over fifty parents and children took part int the feast. This speakes volumes for the success of the school for many years to come. One must pause to wonder where the Education or Public waste comes in. What ?

WIN THE WAR. FEDERAL ELECTION NOTES. THE KEYNOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 13 April 1917

WIN THE WAR. FEDERAL ELECTION NOTES. THE KEYNOTE, After delivering his policy statement at Bendigo, Mr. Hughes, the Prime Minister, dashed across country by motor-car to Ballarat, and every time he stopped he made a speech. Time being limited, he dealt with main issues only, and it needed little power of deduction to learn that what he feels most keenly about in this campaign is Australia's relation to the Empire. The keynote of every speech on this cross country run was this — "The Nationalists stand openly and frankly for the Empire, without the protection of which Australia's doom is sealed." So earnest was he on this subject that he passed over other matters lightly. Nevertheless, he said sufficient to con- vince his hearers that every right which has been accorded by Federal legislation to the workers will be protected by the National Government, which has come into existence not to destroy, but to build up.

OUR MEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 13 April 1917

OUR MEMBER. Have we really got a member ? Well ! I never knew we had. Sure, I thought he had expired, For they said his health was bad. But his health was always middling, That, his friends do now admit, For when work requires doing Andy's never really fit. He'd a chance to save old Epping, But he simply let it slide, For it mattered not to Andy If the Epping Shire died. It was left to willing Angliss, Membroy, Cameron too, ye ken, For to board the mighty Hagel In his fearsome, thorny den. We want something for our money, But if this is all we get, We'd be better represented By a little suffragette. She at least would do her duty, And her zeal would never tire. But while Andy takes the dollars He does nothing for his hire. But he's just been renovated, After spelling quite a while, And he'll be a likely starter In the Parliamentary Mile. He'll be asking for some favors In his self-assertive way. So be sure you don't forget him When it comes to polling day. He can take a hint from Wo...
