The reefs which is only about 6 in. wide, but very rich, employs about 40 men, and the lode shows gold for 860ft. cdnsistently, still carrying gold southi where the drive is being continued. A new find, which should develop into something good, has been made near this claim by Mr. Ben Shaw. It ii a distinct line of reef from the Stockman's. There will be no escort from Stock man's Creek for some little time owing to the company doing dead work in the shape of sinking a shaft from the tunnel which, when completed, shoiild be responsible for some good returns. Chester and Locke started to crush last Saturday, and have stone enough at grass to keep them crushing for about a month. The stuff all looks. well, and if it pans out anything like the last ther...

IIEALE4VILLE MUTUAL IHI PROVEUIENT SOCIETY. The usual weekly meeting of the above society was hr-Id on WediEs?iay evening, Mr. M'Callum being voted to the chair. At the conclusion of the genetal business, Dr. Baird addressed the meeting ohi the aims and objects of the society; He said it was flattering to see so many members present that evening, as he thought the wet night would have kept members away. He hoped their interest would continue, as it was by so doing that the society would benefit. There was a certain amount of spare time after the conclusion of the day's work, and it was the object of the society to try and make an hour or two of that time profitable to its mem bers. The night might be attractively spent by those interested devoting their time and minds to the education of others. A person sometimes thinks he knows what le wants while sitting down, but, o:f ri~fng, he could not find words to express himself.' To over come this difficulty is one of the aims of the soci...

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 19 May 1899

CYCLING. NOTES. Little Platt-Betts made his first re appearance on the racing track (at the Easter Crystal Palace Sports Meeting) since his terrible pacing accident last year, just after his return from Aus tralia. Betts gave an exhibition ride behind a motor car, covering ten miles in the good time of 18 mins. 8 1-5th sees., thus showing that he has lost none of his fine riding abilities. With a little more training, it is confidently expected, Betts (oh Dunlops) will re gain his old position in the cycling world and recapture the short distance world's records, which have gone to America since Betts' enforced retire inent from the racing arena. Great interest is taken in Victoria over the forthcoming paced match be tween Don Walker and W. Martin, which will take place on the 27th inst., the venue being the St. Kilda track, Melbourne. Both men are now put ting in good work behind the pacing machines, which are manned by nearly all the ex-members of the old Dunlop pacing teams. The ...
