Taggart, Varcoe and Kelley. Epping were first away, and G. TaIggart found the goal. 1l orang worked up the road wing to the goal, but good play by Young and M. Brazil turned them back. Play remained about the centre when Mason forwarded and Breeze scored a sixer. After the first change Epping ran over their opponents, goals by Breeze and Taggart giving them the advantage of 6.3 to 2 goals.. At the start of the third quarter Morang scored a couple of goals, but after that were- not in it.

COMPULSION IN ARBITRATION. Dividing the Classes. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
GC~.ePULSION IN ARBITRATION.'I Dividing the Classes. A A noticeable feature of the present day relations between employers and employees is the lack of that unity,. loyalty, and understanding which existed a generation ago. If industry is to prosper, if it is to continue to pro idle profits and wages for those con nected with it, contdntment and co operation are essential in the common interests. These factors were not lack ing in pre-compulsory arbitration days, but in their place now we find discon tent and suspicion, stimulated by this vicious system. It may be said of a generation ago that, inasmuch as working hours were longer and wages much lower, it was to the advantage of the employer to maintain a friendly and considerate at tit::de towards the wage-earner. , littie thought, however, discounts this idea. The comparatively primitive state and extreme youthfulness of our Industries were reasons which contri buted to the longer hours ruling a generation ago. The wonderful lab ...

DIAMOND VALLEY ASSOCIATION. Diamond Creek v. Greensborough. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
DIAMOND VALLEy ASSOCIATION. Diamond Creek v. Greensborough; [By Blue and Red] : The chief interest of this:iassociation on Saturday last centred on the Dia mond Creek ground, where the home team miet the heretofore- undefeated Greensborough eighteen. "Supporters of both teams attended in 'large num bers, and -enthusiasm wasleverywhere apparent, and was undoubtedly stimu lated by the fact that Diamond Creek had suffered their only defeat of the season at the hands of the Greens borough team. The ground was heavy and very slippery, but both. teams set to work with a will and the spirit of fair play and friendly rivalry evidenced from the first bounce was maintained throughout the game. ;The'personnel of the teams varied slightly from that of their previous meeting, Greens borough being without the services of J. Medhurst, Frankliri and Purcell, 1 who Were replaced. by H. Collard (a brilliant youngster),.S. Poulter and H. Vaurer, and for Diamond Creek, R Herbert, G. Huntley and :' ?ius...

THE "BALEE" STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
THE "BALEE " STATION. " Wattle Glen" is the- new name for the station known as Balee, between Diamond Creek and Hurstbridge. When the matter was before the Eltham Council on Monday, it was stated that the name should ,have originally been Bayley. This is how a councilor, ex plained the naming of the station. When the, Railway Commissioner was on the site he asked what was to be the name of the station, one of the residents said : "I don't care what name you give the balee thing." "Then we will call it Balee," replied the Commissioner. We understand that Balee is an aboriginal name meaning watery, and is pro nunced Bayley. Mrs. R. Thornton notifies that she-has &nbsp; taken over the Kangaroo Ground Hotel from Mr. Walker, and the house will be made attractive for week-enders, the table, wines, and spirits being A1 quality.

Creensborough. OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
Greensborough, OBITUARY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) A large circle of friends and acquaintances will regret the death of Mr. E. C. Purcell, &nbsp; who died after an operation for an internal trouble in the Melbourne Hospital on Satur- day, the 1st inst., at the age of 62 years. The deceased gentleman was born at &nbsp; Badger's Point, near Queenstown, the dis- trict at that time being better known as the Caledonia Diggings. On his marriage the young couple settled down at Greensborough, where the duty of rearing a family of four sons and four daughters was worthily ful- filled. The eldest son, James, made the supreme sacrifice at Builecourt in May, 1919. The second son, Edward, also enlisted, and was in camp when the armistice was signed. For the past 30 years "Ted," as he was familiarly called, was an employee of the Heidelberg Shire Council, his conscientious work being an object lesson of skilful and cheerful industry to the thousands of travel lers on the main and b...

HIS REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 July 1922
HIS REWARD. MIr. Brown's business kept him so occupied during the daytime that he had little opportunity to enjoy the society of his own children. One day, however, Mr. Brown, reproached by the wistful eyes of his seven-year-old daughter, invited the little girl to go with him for a long walk. She was a shy, silent, small per son, and during the two hours' stroll not a single word could Mr. Brown induce the little maid to- speak, but her shining eyes attested that she ap preciated his efforts to amuse her indeed, she fairly glowed with sup pressed happiness. Just before they reached home, however, the child managed-but only after a tremendous struggle with her inherent timidity-to find words to express her gratitude. "Papa, what flower do you like beat ?" she asked. "Why, I don't know, my dear-wall flower, I think." "Then," cried the little girl, beam ing with gratitude, "that's what T'U plant on your grave."

It chanced that uncle was taken suddenly ill; hence the wire Richard sent to a relative : "Dear Tom.-Uncle Sam's dying." Later, another telegram followed from the same hand : "Dear Tom.-He's dead-come to the fun." 'And no attempts to explain be meant "funeral" could satisfy his be reaved aunt, who immediately sent nim "empty away."
