MUNICIPAL ABSORPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
MUNICIPAL ABSORPTION. Protests against absorption - by other municipalities were made to the Minister for Public Works (Mr. Hagelthorn) on Wednesday. The Melton Shire opposed their union with the Shires of Braybrook and Keilor. It was stated that the revenue of the Shire was nearly equal to the amount prescribed by the Act to constitute a municipal ity, namely, £1,500. The Shire was essentially a farming district, and the interests of the district would suffer if the Shire were united to semi-metropolitan districts. A pro posal was put forward that the Keilor Shire might be united to the Braybrook Shire, and that a portion of the Braybrook Shire be added to Melton Shire. Mr. Hagelthorn, in reply to the deputations, stated that the Councils must recognise that he had to carrry out his duty as determined by Parlia ment in the amended Local Govern ment Act. Parliament thought that some municipalities could be more economically and efficiently managed ~by a reduction in the standing cha...

CHIPTER XXXV.-Continued. "I knew him years ago," said Mrs. May. "Oh, indeed,' Geoffrey replied. "He never mentioned that." Mrs. May drew a long breath. Evi. dently she had nothing to fear. Her arch-enemy had gone to -his account, leaving no mischief behind. Sooner or~ later the man :would:-have had to be removed; now he had gone away; -~saving all the trouble. :Really, it was very considerate of Tchigorsky. "You might come to the inquest and say he was a friend of yours," said Geoffrey. Mrs. May looked at him sharply. Had she said too much, or did he suspect? But Geoffrey's eyes were clear and innocent of meaning. Mrs. May shuddered. These kind of hor rors made her ill," she said. "Pray do not mention that fact," she implored. "It can do no good, and it may cause a great deal of harm." Geoffrey discla...

PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S PREMONITION. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
PRESIDENT. LINCOLN'S PREMONITION. Some verses by Beatrice Allhusen contained in the current "Cornhill" are prefaced by the following:-"The anniversary of President Lincoln's death on April 16, recalls a story which Charles Dickens originally brought back from America and which ,is well authenicated. At a meeting of the Cabinet that morning the President told his colleagues that in the course of a few hours' they would hear strange intelligence. What was it? they asked. He had dreamed it again that very night. 'And I'm alone,' he said, 'alone in a boat, and I'm out on the bosom of a great rush ing river, and I drift, drift, drift.' Be fore he could complete the sentence Secretary Stanton entered the roonm 'But to business!' said the President, and the rest remained untold. At nine o'clock that evening he was as, sassinated."
MOTORING AND OTHER ELOPEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915
MOTORING AND .OTHER ELOPEMENTS. One often hears nowadays of fair :adies `eloping with their motormen-: writes Lord Montagu of Beaulieu im the "Car," and the commonest re mark when such? events happen is, "How could she?" or "Just fancy, with a motorman?" But is there no. thing more than an ordinary mascu line attraction for the feminine mind in a smart-looking motorman,. a skilled driver, gifted with a good man her, deferential yet independent, and well educated also, as often happens now? I think there is. Just as the fair sex on .a liner, say of the captain, "What a dear," and often wish they were Mrs. Captain, and just as the feminine of them adore the actor, the singer, or the author, so women in general love a man of action who does things, controls things, and could con trol them too if the occasion arose. The sense of being absolutely de pendent upon the man at the wheel has a peculiar fascination, and -re sults in the sense of trust broadening sometimes into senses of other ...
