Royalty at Fernshaw To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 29 May 1943
Royalty at Ferashaw To the Editor. Sir,-In Saturday's "Age" I read with interest your account of the 'Royal visit to Fernshaw. I've often wondered- what became of a' girl who wrote and Mtold me that it was she who presented the Duchess with a bunch of flowers on that 'occasion. Her name was Lowie Cummings, and she and I went to Yarra Glen school to gether. My people had a' restaurant at Yarra Glen. We drove there a while :back, *but what sad memories were recalled Friends all, gone, and nothing but memories left. We drove 'on to Healesville, but knew no one. It is a beautiful place and its past is 'worth writing about, aind the once (busy race days at Yarra Glen, and all the. blacks. We were tiny kids there.' I noticed that Farrell's Hotel still stands.--Yours, etc., .I. OROSTHWAITE. * 36 Clifton grove, Coburg, 23/5/43.

Three Wars [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 29 May 1943
Three Wars 3 v-- By Eileen Finlay. Author of "The Caravan Passes," "Full Turn" (sequel), "The Hills of Home," etc. She was a little old lady, and was sitting on a cliff seat at Black Rock, gazing out to sea, and I saw she was painting seagulls. We became very friendly when she spoke of her paintings of Lilydale, and I will put together the little story she told me-a lifetime in half an hour. She knew Lilydale well. About 1895 she spent nearly a year there, and boarded at the old coffee palace; as she said, "well chaperoned." She walked miles in every direction, paint ing all the beauty spots in what she called that lovely English village. She told me her father had seen the Cave Hill quarry started, and that he lW.d leapt across it when it was but four feet wide. She was enter tained by this one and that, and al though she mentioned no names I knew she had been in some of the finest old homes. In return she gave afternoon teas, and sometimes hired a buggy' from "A Mr. Lithgow's stab...

It's Cold To-Day [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 29 May 1943
In dealing with your fellow man It always is the wiser plan, If he with you is much put out, For you mildly to turn about And comment on the weather. Though angry, he will be disarmed And gaze at you as if he's charmed, And you will stifle harsh dissent If you look quite innocent And comment on the weather. A foe may ride the highest horse And vent his spleen on you, of course. But shift him you can from the saddle If you ignore his fiddle-faddle, And comment on the weather. I remember, once, a man came in With murder written on his chin. I met him with the best .of grace And called to aid the commonplace And comment on the weather. "By josh," he said, "you take the cake! Your nut I was about to break, But you, sir, show no wild alarm, You view me with the greatest calm, And comment on the.weather!" I've never known this plan to fail, No matter how a foe may rail; Try it some time, it's so simple, At castigation cast a dimple, And comment on the weather. -Pen."

The Demand is Personal [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 29 May 1943
The Demand is Personal v----- Reports from correspondents in North Africa have been colored with descriptions of enthusiastic celebra tions on the part of the local popu lations of Tunis and Bizerta. Such manifestations of joy and relief are an offset to the grimness of the struggle on the other battlefields of the world. As the great Allied armies press on across Europe and Russia towards the blacl heart of Nazism, other peoples will :ise up in gladness from the shadow of depression and despair. For them the climax of these dreadful days of war will have been reached, both materially and emotion ally, and the end of their suffering will be il sight. For us in Australia these tremendous events can only be happy auguries of final victory on a world-wide scale. We can share in spirit the joy of Allied success, but there is no assurance In' the coming twelve months of any such relief on our grim battle front. We have not yet reached the stage where our ac cumulated might can be launche...

An in tion of repair work in progress on Sroad made it clear that the worst of it is from Duce's bridge for at two miles north therefrom. A. eviously reported, this section is like bblestone paving, and the bare rock ation is showing in Imany places. seems doubtful whether the expense scarifying much of this section is tified, as so little metal is left. re is no doubt, however, that the 't common cause of. pavement ruc and scouring is the inadequate of water tables. This portion of lefs Creek road was built with cul too far apart. Pending construec n of more culverts, water tables iuld be widened and deepened.
