ELTHAM RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 6 February 1903

ELTIIAM RACES. Races took place at the Eltharn Park on Sltardey afternoon last. The weather was extremely hot and trying, nod possibly affected the sttendence. somewhat, as the gathering of the -general public was not so large as ex. pected. A special train was run for the conventience of visitors, and many took advantage of it, but the care,iages were in no way erowded. A charge for aduission to the coulral was enade, and it wae surprising how aesny people showed their meanness by taking short cits and evading the gatekeeper. Mr. Wmin. Morris, of theEvelyn Hotel, Eltham, ran the publican's booth, and also provided a hooth where more sub stantial refreshments could lie o'btainod, bat while he apparently did a good trade in the former, the latter was not patronised to any extent, the weather not having a tendency to make anyone " huagry illclined." The bookmaking fraternity were numerously represented, as also were "sharks and sherpers," the latter providing work for the mounted cons...

TO TIlE EDITOR OF TIII( EVEtP OB9EROlVER, Dear lSir,-I am more than surprised at Cr Morris' letter in your last Issue, seeing that he is the ringleader, in my opinion, In the grossly'illegal jobs perpetrated on the residents of Separation, ilorang, in Craven's Lane, said job being lowering 12 chains of the said lane, after being properly con structed, below the level of the natural sur face of the ground. All through thie winter, ,.waet,. np foot. passenger can tray?l rqnd, and vehicular tratllo Is carried on, through n sheet of water. As to illegally draining people's land, Cr Morris must have had nightmare, na he is the only onee who seems to enunciate that Idea, All that Morattg cauttellors ever asked for was for thie outlet drains already made to be kept cleaned out, That was done, but unfortunately at a weak moment Cr Morris managed by a voet to undo what was done, and so laid the Lounall open' to law suit No, 2, which they lot, No, I with Shanks was lost through not doing thei...

A DYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 6 February 1903

A DYING INDUSTRY. Some time back, the Imperial Gov ernment despatched an officer to New Zealand and Australia to ascer tain our resources in the matter of horse supply for army requirements. Theretofore, the War Office had to rely upon foreign resources ; notably, of late, upon the United States. Ap art from the circumstance that this was a resource which, under inter national complications, might fail at a most critical time, the authorities were doubtless affected by the spirit that had been called forth by the cordial cooperation of these countr ies in the recent Transvaal trouble. It was felt no doulbt, that the .large sum of money - annually spent byi the'War Ollico in the purchase of alrmy' nliount"s,'should, if possible, find its.waiiy into tlie piockets of kins folk, `rather than into the hands of alien inatiohs.' This, circumstance eniphasizes'the regret which must follow the uinfavourable report of the expert sent out to discover our value as ,horse producig countries. ,Ti...

HOW SQUIRRELS PLANT OAK TREES. -,, --+r- It is a curious crcIumastance, and not generally known, that most of those oak trees which are said to have grownt spontaneously are plant ed by the squirrel. This little animal has performed the most essential service to the British Navy. A gentleman walkingz one afternoon through the woods of an estate in the neighbourhood had his attention diverted by a squirrel, which sat very composedly upon the ground, 1He stopped to observe its motions. In a few moments the. squirrel darted to the top of a tree, beneath which he had been sitting. In tn instant he was down with an acorn in his mouth, and after dig ging a small hole, he stooped down and deposited a small acorn; then, covering "it he darted up the tree again. In a loment lhe wits downi again with another, which he buried in the same manner. This he con tinued to do as long as the observer thought proper to watch him. l'he indiustry of this little creature Is directed to the purpose of sec...

AN INDIAN SNAKE CHARMER. During the Autumn of 1861, while awaiting the arrival of the steam frigate Colorado, to which he had been assigned, ]ear-Admiral Itobley D. Evans spent four months at Sing apore. With four companions, he hired a bungalow, which was situ aged on the edge of the jungle. in his autobiographical volume, "A Snilor's Log," he tells this stolry : One morning, as five of us sat tak ing our morning fruit and coffee, the Chinese attendant broke into the room, almost paralysed with fear, screaming, "Cobra I Cobra I " In a moment we had located a largo vicious-looking reptile in the back yard, and the happy thought came to someone to send for a snake charmer and test his qualities on this specimen, which had evidently just crawled out of the jungle.

A LONDON CRIMINAL AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 6 February 1903

A LONDON CRIMINAL AT WORK. -.- There are certain things in the back attic of this shabby little house in IIoxton which might interest the neighbours, could they manage to peer through its closely curtained window (says Mr. Ernest A. Carr in "Living London") Over the coke fire hangs a melting pot, an iron ladle is lying before It, and an electric battery stands on the mantelshelf. On the table, beside a shapless mass of bright metal, ore some odd-looking slabs of plaster of Paris: and seated before it is an elderly man in a leather apron at work with his tools. One by one he picks up the glittering white discs that lie before him on a board, nips ofl from each its long "tail " of metal, and touches up its milled I edges at the point of fracture. They look like silver coins-crowns, half crowns, nnd florilns- but the RIoyal Mint would repllldiate them all. This dingy attic is the workshop, of a notorious coiner-- t "smIsher,"' in the jargon of crimno-well known in the old honest days a...
