OUR ERRATIC VALUATIONS. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 March 1914

OUR ERRATIC VALUATIONS. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") Sir,-This is a subject which our Shire Councoil does not feel inclined to disouss, more especially when a com parison is ma'de of the low valuations placed on some properties as against the heavy valuations pelaced on others. The only reply an objector gets is an official recommendation to try the County Court or Petty Sessions for redress. This kind of advice is all right when it is given by a body which has the rate payers' money to fight with; but it seems to me that, if councillors were to be;held personally liable for costs if the ease was given against them, they would be more sparing of their .advice to "try the law." Tho council of late has not been too successful in its appeals to the law, and in several instances ratepayers have had to pay pretty heavily in the way of costs for somebody's fondness of the law. However, what I wish to point out is the absurdity of the present valuations in the Shepparton Riding, as...

THACKERAY'S DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 12 March 1914

THACKEIRAY'S DEATH On Christmas Eve, 1863 - fifty years ago-Thackeray died unexpectedly. The last words he corrected in print were (says "The Westminster Gazette") "And my heart throbbed with an exquisite bliss." To Dickens a week earlier he had laughingly described a new remedy he had had it in his mind to try for an indisposition that had kept him to his bed.for three days. "He was :cheerful and looked very bright." A lperusai of his latest writings convinced Dickens that his once estranged friend was in the healthiest vigor of his powers, and In reference to the above sentence he wrote: "God grant that on that Christ mas Eve when he laid his head back on his pillow and threw up his arms. as he was wont to do when very weary, some consciousness of duty done, and of Christian hope throughout life humbly cherished, may have caused his own heart so to throb when he passed away to his Redeemer's rest." He was found peacefully lying as above de scribed, composed, undisturbed, and to al...
