LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 19 May 1888

LOCAL ITEMS.. Tenders were on. Wednesday oponed for the work of filling, anh. -eclaiming the Elwood Swamp .adjoining Eleternwick and-North- Brighton, and almost between the litter place and East St. Kilda. The area of the swamp is'137 acres, and the Department estimated the work would take four years. The work has been under taken by the Lands Department after con siderable pressure having been brought to bear, but when reclaimed, the land will become very valuable, and it is estimated the department should' make a reasonable profit on the transaction by selling the area reclaimed. There was a good com petion, eight contractors having tendered under, in all twelve tenders, and the great range of the amounts shows there has not been anything like a knock-out. The lowest tender was under £40,000, and the highest nearly LI20,000, or three times as much. The following is a complete list of the tenders :-Hugh Thompson. 44 Elizabeth street, material from Port Philip Bay, waste and private...

Publicity. One of the greatest orators of the ae'h speakiog in tho House of Commons In 1871'T asye :--" Without publicity there can be no spirit; without public spirit every nation must decay."

ONLY A SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

ONLY A BONG. It was only a simple ballad, Sung to a careless throng; There were none that knew the singer. And fear that heeded the song; Yet the singer's voice was tender And sweet as with love untold; Surely those hearts'were hardened That it left so proud and cold. She sang of the wondrous glory That touches the woods in epsing, Of the strange, soal.stirring voices When 'the bills break forth and slng; Of the happy birds low warbling The requiem of the day, And the quiet hush of the valleys In the dusk of the gloaming grey. And one in a distant corner A woman worn with strife Heard in that song a message From the spring.time of her life. Fair forms rose up before her . From the midst of vanished years; She eat in a happy blindness, Her eyes were veiled in tears. Then; when the song was ended, And hushed the last sweet tone,. The listener rose up softly And went on her way alone. Once more to her life of labour She passed ; but her heart was strong; And she prayed. ' God bless the...

SIR HENRY TAYLOR AND HIS FRIENDS. (PALL MALL GAZETTE) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

IIR1 HENRY TAY'LOR AND HIS FRIENDS. (PALL MALL GAZETTE ) What a mass of material the anecdotic t historian of our balf century will have to deal I r with ?. From the endless array of biographies, I autobiographies, diaries, and letters it should almost be possible to "account for" every day f in the life of certain prominent members of literary and political coteries-to discover E I where he was, and who wee in his company at any given date, and even to pick up scrapes a of his conversation. Sir Henry Taylor, in tee r two volumes of his " Autobiography," bad already contributed his fair shbare to the r ' intimate annals of his time. The c dlection, I n or rather sele.tion, of letters now before us is a sort of supplement to the "Autobio a graphy." ( If there is not a great wealth of absolute I I, anecdote in this correspondence, there'are a many direct and vivid glimpses of the literary f men of three generations, "in their habits as I e they lived." In 1831 Taylor writes from t a L...

MAY OWEN'S HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 26 May 1888

MAY OWEN'S HUSBAND. By GEORGe R. S?Ns. What do they say to.day ? Tell me, I can bear it.' A young woman of seven or eight and twenty, still pretty, though trouble had left its mark upon her features, looks up from the pillow on which her weary head rests, and asks the question eagerly of the motherly old soul, her landlady, who had just returned from a visit to a London hospital. For a moment May Owen's landlady heeil tates. The poor young creature has not yet re covered the shook of the terrible night when a stranger came to her with the news that her husband had been terribly injured by an accident at the works where he was employed, and had been taken to the hospital. But May Owen read the answer.in the woman's face. He is worse,' she said. ' Tell me; do they say there is any hope 9, The old lady shook her bead sorrowfully. 'They say, my dear, that he won't live through the night.' The landlady had expected a flood of tears, perhaps a tit of hysterics, but May Owen let her head f...
