The Guardian. PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1899. THE YARRA TRACK-A GLIMPSE OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 February 1899

PUBLISHED FRIDAY SIORNINGS. FRIDAY, FEBR UARY 10, 1899. THIE YARRA TRACK--A GLIMPSE OF TRIE FUTURE. To one and all locally comes the information that another rich return has bieii received by Messrs. Chester and Locke, of the Yarra Track, and already one can discern in the picture of the future the consummation of a want which will benefit the district so greatly. Whoever has the interest of the' town and district at heart, and we conclude that the majority of residents have that V'ish in thought, the opinion that a goldei Eldora-o will shortly be turning out its ounces and ounces in the vicinity of the Yarra Track, strikes of the mind as being something quite at pleasant to ponder over, If there is th one industry more than another which m causes an impetus to a to*n, that in- tl dristry is gold-mining. In any district m which is noted for its gold resources, there generally exists amoiog its resi dents a spirit of expectancy and hope. o0 MAs it is with the fateful gambler who s' h...

ABSENT-MINDED. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 February 1899

ABSENT -1?INDElD. An amusing story is told in Edin burgh. At a recent auction sale of old furniture, a chair, bearing on the back the car;ed words "Dunottar Castle," was ptut tp. Experts expected it might fetch about £25. The bidding began at £3, and soon reached £30, when only two brokers remained in the com petition, which, to the amazement of everyone present, advanced in £5 bids to £100, and then jumped in steps of £10 to £600. Finally, one of the bidders retired, and the chair was knocked down to his successful rival at the price of £670, The secret of this strange sale is quite simple. Sir Donald Currie had seen the name on the back of the chair, and had com missioned an Edinburgh broker to buy it. Next day forgetting what he had done he instructed a Glasgow broker to bid for the chair, and these two were the rival bidders, with the result that Sir Donald is now the possessor of what is probably the most costly old oak chair in the world.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 February 1899

GENERAL NEWS. - o: A poem, entitled " Condon's Gully," sent tri by a visitor, will appear next week. The advisability or probability of hold ing a sports meeting at Healesville on Easter Monday has been suggested to us, and the idea appears to be one of much worth. fealesville is very backward in anything which has for its, purpose the fosteiing of spoit, and though it has been recognised that the mantle of responsibility is allowed to rest upon the shoulders of a few, such a fact should not have a deter rent effect upon those who would wish to see the day observed, but refuse to take the initiative in the matter. If a number of willing and ardent gentlemen took the thing in hand-and we know many that will do so-aand a strong working com mittee appointed, with a capable and ener getic man holding the reins of secretary, we venture the opinion that a very good day's sport could be provided for the en e joyment of all. If the holiday was ob served, as suggested, money would, instead o...

PERTINENT PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 February 1899

PERTINENT PARS. [BY HAWK-EYE.] A ?napper-up of unconsidered trifles. The Yarra box mystery-now fortu nately a mystery no longer-is still the stock topic of conversation in, the colony. Why this is so, it is hard to say, since, apart from the " box" inci dent, the case is an only too ordhinry one. Doubtless the extraordinary per sonality of the Crown' witness, Thekla b)ubberke, has much to do with the in-' terest the case has aroused. Just turned 20,: prepossessing in appear ance, and of much Amore than average I ability, she gave her evidence in ac manner that was repulsive for the cal lousnessof nature evinced in one so young. The brutal delight with which a she details the scenes between herself i anid her numerous lovers, she the t while, although never blushing, still c preserving an appearance of almost s virginial modesty, is fairly surprising. F Half-a-dozen reputations are already l1 besmirched, and in some cases fairly t wrecked, while further disclosures are o yet to come....

The country is well opened up by min ing tracks, and may be easily 'eached. As recently reported, Messrs. Chester and Locke's claim, the Golden Secret, has cleaned up for 200oz. frbm 70 tons. So long as claims are woraed on the basis of this mine-where the prospec tors are willing to open up the claim and prove its worth-the district is not likely to suffer from "w'ild cat" ventures. Another excellent claim in this vicinity is the Stockman's Reward, now under tribute to Ford aitd party. While the claim was in the hands of a foreign company it brought no thing but dissatisfaction eand "loss to shareholders; but when i let -on, tribute, to a party of practical miners it, im mediately began to pay handsomely.

CORRESPONDENCE. $---- (We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents.) HE AL ESVILLE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE AND FREE LIBRARY. To TUE EDITOR. SIR,-Being a stranger in Heales ville, and shortly after by arrival (being only here on a holiday) I looked up the Mechanics' Institute to see the daily news. Judge my surprise on enquiring for the papers to find that they do not take them, the only paper available being the local one. Who is to blame for this neglect ? I am sure the proprietors of the Melbourne dailies would contribute their papers free of cost if application were only made to them, and the proprietors of the country journals would do like wise. Some Institutes in the country districts get the principal of the pro vincial papers; in some cases free, in others by paying the postage. This trifling expense is as nothing when the popu!arity of the instition is advanced by the inclusion of these newspapers. lIeaesrille being one of the chief places of resort for vi...
