THINGS WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 24 August 1900
THINGS WORTH KNOWING. -o Wall paper having apparent value of £82,000, but in reality worth nothing, decorates the study of a New York business man. It is composed of thou sands of 6 per cent. bonds, engraved and printed at a cost of £500 for a company which, failing to attract in vestors, died before it could be floated. An American railway official in a recent lecture stated that it cost his company each year about £200 for pins, £1000 for india rubber hands, £1000 for ink, £1400 for lead pencils, also that it costs nearly as much for stationery to carry on the business as for iron. In Belgium all automobile vehicles must carry, both in front and behind, a number large eiiough to be seen at a distance, and after sunset each number must he lighted by a lamp. Automo biles and bicycles must be provided with a brake. All self-propelled car ringes must also bear the regulation number of the city and the owner's name and address. Rubber tyred car riages must carry bells.

At Bahrin, in the centre of the torrid part of the toriid belt, as though it were Nature's intention to make the region as unbeareable as possible, no water can he obtained from digging wells 100, 200, or even 500 feet deep, yet a comparatively numerous popula tion contrive to live there, thanks to copious springs which break forth from the bottom of the gulf, niore than a mile from shore. The water from these springs is obtaitied by divers, who dive to the bottom and fill goatskin bags with the cooling liquid, and sell it for a living. The source of these sub marine fountains is thought to be in the green hill of Osman, som...

PERTINENT PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 24 August 1900
PERTINENT PARS. [BY HAWK-EYE.] " A snapper-up of unconsidered trifles.:' The establishment of a lake and gardens in Healesville, as suggested by Mr. Crowley, when addressing the ratepayers in Daly's Hall last week, would certainly mean a big thing for this town if such were brought to pass, but I have heard mention made of this so frequently that one is some what dubious whether or not to treat it as a joke. Anyone, possessed of the ordinary gift of mental accumen, must have long since observed that this place is handicapped by the fact that its citizens will not interest themselves towards improving the natural and beautiful surroundings which we al ready enjoy, and unless we can get some energetic gentlemen to move in this matter in some definite way, I am afraid that Healesville's progress will assuredly become dwarfed in .the very near unseen. Not so very long since, I was one of a party who were discussing the adaptedness of .Hleales ville as a site for a park and gardens,. wit...

Our reporter called on Mrs. Golds worthy at hercomnfortable home in Skene street, Stawell, where she lives with her family of seven sons and six daughters, all of whom are well-known and highly respected. " One night," said she, " I had an extraordinary experience. I retired to bed at the usual time, but woke suddenly with burning pains shooting up and down -.y left leg and hip. The pains continued despite all remedies, and at last grew so had that I could not walk accross the road without assistance. A doctor told me I was sutfering from acute sciatica, but liniments atnd patent medicines proved useless. So I went on suffering till a friend induced me to try Dr. Williams' pink pills. After taking them for some little time I felt a tingling in my-leg and hip. Then the pain...
"PUNCH" PICKINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 24 August 1900
"PUNCH " PICKINGS. -0 On the day the news of the death of Prince Alfred was received in Mel bourne many of the business firms in Collins-street put their fronts in morn ing by hanging folds of crape about their windows. This seems to have preyed upon the mind of one unsympa thetic individual, for, coming face to face with a large black man near the Stock Exchange, he glared at him for a moment and gasped : 'Great Scot ! are you in mourning, too V The gentle man of color resented the remark, asmd his left fist came suddenly into collision with the nose of the would be humorist, with the result that the latter was im mediately converted into an unwilling mourner, too, and his eyes still wear the livery of woe. An advocate of woman's rights carrying a petition in favor of the suff rage, called upon Mrs. Maloney for her signature. ' And what wud I be doing with thim rights ' said Mrs. Maloney. 'Sure I have been through the marriage rites, and I have my lines to show that same.' 'You don...
