Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 December 1922
Thoughts. [By Mernda.] Being in a thoughtful mood, I veu tore, with your kind permission, to 1 give vent to my thoughts in your valu able newspaper., My first thought has been about pensions, to be available when incapacity, or old-age arrives. Now, sir, I have often thought over this problem, and my idea is to levy a tax on all money-earners and others over the age of 21 years sufficient to provide pensions where required, and thus give us a right honestly paid for a pension sutficient to maintain each citizen in an honorable and legitimate way when old age or incapacity arrives. 9 y second thought is about the de pletion of our timber resources. Where I reside on the main road, a steady stream of wood carts are con stantly travelling along the road, and when I remarked to a friend that we would soon have no timber left he re plied that it was only dry timber the drays were carting. This timber was wrung to make it available for fire wood, and many hundreds of tons had been carted ...

Cricket 80 Years Ago. (Our Eltham Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 December 1922
Cricket 80 Years Ago, (Our Eltham Correspondent.) I have been handed a cricket scoring book by Cr. Andrew. It contains records of matches played between the Biighton and Melbourne clubs as far back as 1842-five years after the foindation of Melbourne Cr. An drew's father- (the late Mrs B. An drew) was secretary of the club during that period, and it may be said that he was practically the pioneer of Vic torian cricket Among the players ranks the name of Dendy, who was the founder of Brighton, a street in that locality still bearing his name. :Mr Dendy acquired a vast stretch of land from the blacks. This land was the spot where Brighton now stands. His right to this land was cancelled by the British Government, and he was awarded compensation and allowed to retain portion of the land he had acquired I- believe this record is unique, and probably the book is the oldest in our State. As the cricketers mentioned are unknown to record, although at that time they formed the leading teams...
