Origin of Postage Stamps. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 3 December 1900
Origin uf Postage Stamps- 1 The incident which resulted in the invention of the postage I stamp was a curious one. A traveller journeying through the north of England chanced to reach the door of an inn just as a postman stopped to deliver a letter. The .young girl for whom it was intended came out to re ceive it. She turned it over and over in her hands and asked the price of the postage The price demanded was a shil ling, and as tlie girl was poor she returned it to the postman saying that it was from her j brother, but that she had not that amount of money. Tlie traveller, in spite of her pro test, paid the money to the postman, and handed the letter to tlie girl. When tlie post man departed the young girl admitted that she and her brother had arranged by cer tain marks upon tlie letter that the other should know that the writer was in good j health and prospering. j 'We are so poor,' she added tliat we were forced to invent this way of letting each other know of our welfare.'

Our Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 6 December 1900
Our Melbourne Letter. (From our own Correspondent. I The St. Kilda election resulted, as was expected, in tlie return of the Premier by a large majority, but even now Sir George Turner represents a mere minority of the electors because out of a - possible vote of over 4000, the Premier only received 1852 votes. His opponent, Mr. Densham, made a gallant fight, but as he had practically only four days to work in, aud ^as a perfect stranger, not only to St. Kilda but also -to political life, it is little less than surprising that he polled nearly 800 votes. At Bogong, Mr. Isaacs, the Attorney-General, was elected by over 500 'majority. The Upper House elections are not yet decided, but it seems after Monday's success that botli Mr. 'Wynne and Mr. M'Culloch will be returned, and then the second Turner Ministry will go to work in earnest. Apart, however, from all political and personal considerations, the present Government is a sham. Both Sir George TJumer and Mr Isaacs intends to go in...

After scoring 5, and making bis total 22, Tyson was stumped by Cornish, Proctor picking up and throwing in veiy neatly. Ad dicoat joined lteid, but lie shaped badly being clean-bowled by J ulian for none. Armitage joined Reid, who was all the time playing a careful stonewalling game. The partnership was brief, for j Reid was bowled by a slow-break from Julian, liis score being at lialf-a-dozen. Gibbs joined Armitage, and some fair'y lively batting was witnessed.
