WORLD-WIDE NOTES. MEANING OF "STUNT." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 30 June 1922
WORLD-WU. M. NOTES. MEANING OF "STUNT.'.' "Stunt" is a word that. is as worn out as "camouflage." It was greatly in favour in baseball circles before the war. Probably the noun means "a dodge for stopping the growth of anything." and generally "any clever dodge or trick." Private A. Ware, of Leytonstone. recently discharged from the Essex Regiment, probably holds a record for the number of wounds received in action. Altogether he received 130 wounds, and after being a consider able time in hospital was discharged with about 100 pieces of shrapnel in his body. John Mullins, a coal-miner of Hemphill, Pennsylvania, . claims a world's tonnage record for mining and loading coal in a single month. His output was 691 tons, which is over twenty-seven tons daily.. Mul lins's wages for the month amounted. to £S9 16s. 7d.

Eltham. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
Eitham. (FROMI OUR CORRESPONDENT.) The shortage of players last Saturday led to Eltham trying out some new men. Perhaps the goalie, "that billiard hero in a soldiers' coat" as one Eltham player :laughingly put it, was one of the most outstanding men of his side. Fresh fromn the "soccer" -game, he understood his part, and his dark curly head never shifted from between those posts till necessity demanded it. When the local lads found the goal line they were un pleasantly surprised to invariably find the ball booted or fisted back. With hands upraised,. the goalie would take a flyingleap, and punch the leather back across the field. On Saturday night he was the object of football worship at Eltham, and there are many who hope to see him appear-in the final matchles. BALLOON NIGHT.. On Saturday evening last the Eltham M.U.I.O.O.F. Lodge held a successful balloon night. The attendance, although not large, was sufficient to ensure the success of the evening.. Mrs Luckman (piano) was capab...
A MENTAL DELUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
A MENTAL DELUSION. During a recent air raid an elderly man, awakened from his sleep by the sound of the bursting bombs, hastily donned his trousers and ran into the nearest field. On arriving there he suddenly found out that he was without his false teeth, and so concluded he must have swallowed them in the excitement. As the minutes sped on he complained of a pain in his stomach, and gradually got worse and worse. When the raid was over he was tak en back home and put to bed, where, on lifting up the pillow, he found his "lost" teeth, whereupon the pain dis appeared.

Correspondence. MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. SIR.-The annual elections will soon be here, and it behoves ratepayers to review the records of the three retiring council lors, so that if deemed unsatisfactory new men may be induced to come forward. In this riding Cr Bradbury has stated that he would not stand again, and the Pro gress Association and those interested should lose no time in selecting a suitable candidate to take his place. Wte are ex pecting big developments when the elec tric trains buzz into the local station, and all should do-their share to push the town and district ahead, and one of the best ways to do this is to elect alive councillor to represent the South Riding at the Council table.-Yours, &c., ELTHAM.

LAND VALUES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
LAND VALUES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. SIR, - Your correspondent "Week Ender" seems to put his case as regards. land values entirely in favor of Greens borough, for he compares residential values in the latter place with business sites in Eltham, and no wonder there is a wide difference, which makes me think he should have signed himself a " Weak Ender" instead of " Week Ender." If he had the interest of Eltham at heart he would get full details and make fair com parisons. As I am only a new resident here I cannot supply the data I should like, but perhaps some older resident may be able to make our growing town appear in a more favorable light.-Yours, &c., "ELTHAMITE.

YARRA GLEN WELCOME HOME LEAGUE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
YARRA GLEN WELCOME HOME LEAGUE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER SIR,-In a recent issue of your paper I noticed a report of the final meeting of the Yarra Glen Welcome Home League, and naturally expected to see a complete balance-sheet, as we did when the Red Cross disbanded. Not only was a fall and complete balance-sheet, audited and found correct, published in all the local papers, but a printed copy of same, I understand, was sent to each member. The Red Cross evidently was a business like society. I noticed Mr Bath spoke in glowing terms of the. secretarial work. Surely he could have furnished a little thing like that. It would be most inter esting to many of your readers if such had been done. It would be interesting to know how much medals, photos and wallets cost, and where purchased, and the working explained. I always under stood everyone gave their services free, and they had. the free use' of the hall for a considerable time. I understand then; again, how much money was ta...

HOW TO TELL A STORY. Having assembled your company you impressively relate how a man fell into the hands of pirates or bri gands; who, after tying his hands, behind his back, chopped off his head. Forthwitn, with admirable presence of mind, the victim picked up his still warm head and stuck it on his shoul ders again, whereupon his would be murderers 'fled with terror. At this stage one of your bearers is sure to -remark, "Oh, but you said the man's hands were tied behind his back, so he could not have picked up his head," to which you reply, " He picked it up with his teeth 1"
