THE Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser AND Diamond Creek Valley Advocate Published Every Friday Afternoon HURSTBRIDGE, JANUARY 26, 1923. Hurstbridge's Civic Pride. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 January 1923
TILE Eltham nId AhltittleXsea hit's AND giattmtuid r?'cF WAlleg j zýUo?rte Published Every Friday Alfternoon HURSTBRIDGE, JANUARY 26, 1923. Hurstbridge's Civic Pride. The progress that is being made in the townships along the railway line between Heidelberg and Hurstbridge prompts people to ask what the set tlers in the latter place are doiilg to keep in the van of progress. We hear residents asking for a water supply, a sanitary by-law, and some sort cf a footpath, but none of these things can .be brought about unless the place is proclaimed a township. An effort was made about three years ago to bring that about, and although a little hitch occurred then there is no reason .why another attempt should not be made. The electrifi cation of the railway line to Eltham within two months is going to pro mote the interests of all the towns that it touches, and Hurstbridge and Diamond Creek will be benefited to at certain extent/--just in the same way that Greensborough and Eltham were whe...

Correspondence. PIG AND CALF KILLING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 January 1923
Correspondence., PIG ANO CALF KILLING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER Sir,-WVhat a farce it is'to expect us to pay a £.5 fee for. three or four pigs or calves a year. The butcher, at that fee, is getting off cheap in the country, as he can kill anythirig. If we got a fair deal in the live market it would be al.right. I was offered 37s 6d for an. eighty pound pig. As a 'slip it cost 22s 6d,- so you can see we are not making a fortune out of them. An other case: A vealer, 12olbs, in fair condition, killed and sent to Mel bourne-net return 6s 6d. So the fee will .take a lot of making up. And again, I think the persons responsible .for passing the resolution all know that we are charged for .inspection and branding when the carcase, arrives'at. the agents.-Youis, `c., . DUMMY.'

PUBLIC HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 January 1923
- PUBLIC HALL. The annual meeting of the Eltham Public Hall was held-on Thursday, January 18th. Cr. Andrew was in the chair. In presenting the annual report, the- president eulogised the good services of Mrs. Phillips (presi dent- ladies' committee), .Messrs. Pascoe (secretary) and Ryan (ex. secretary), and the various officers who had so ably assisted in making the year such a successful one. The treasurer (Mr. Nicholls) presented a tentative balance sheet, which showed a credit balance of £31. There had' been paid £100 off the principal owing, and a good amount paid out, effecting improvements to the building. Messrs. H. Clark and D. J. McColl were appointed audi tors.

The people of Eltham are indeed fortunate in having such' a live committee, and should show their appreciation ,by pa...
IN DEFENCE OF POMMY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 January 1923
IN DEFENCE OF POMiIMY. (To ;the Editer.) Sir,--On reading several literary spasms on the alleged inadequacy of the "Pommy," I would like, in de fence-of this much-abused person, to bring under the notice of your readers some facts in reference to his last contribution. I would like to point out.that a little place like the British Isles, with its population of something like 50,000,000, raises annually millions of chickens, and in many parts of the country families live absolutely on the proceeds of an industry of this nature; and to "the Britisher who has witnessed these poultry farms, that can be seen from one end of the British -Isles to the other, and also to the readers of your paper who have any knowledge of, the conditions and vastness of the un dertakiggs of other parts of the world, the correspondent's asser tions are- ridiculous in *the extreme, the reason being that his vision, be ing so narrow and limited, he cannot see beyond Australia's coastline. These absurd statemen...
THE "TWOPENNY DETECTIVE" [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 January 1923
THE "TWOPENNY DETECTIVE: Great difficulty has often been ex perienced by detectives,' lawyers' clerks, and others in obtaining an un doubted specimen of a person's sig nature. In one case recourse had to be made -to a marriage register; in another the only, signature procurable was on the fly-leaf of a book which the suspect had presented to a rela .tive, and only " two or three years ago a testimonial to a sea captain was, brought into court, because among the .signatures.to it was one for which the police had long hunted In vain. One .of the most common resources for overcoming this difficulty is em ploying the "'twopwnny detective" that is, sending a registered letter to -the person whose signature is want ed. This is frequently Isuccessful. Th'nking the postal 'package con tains money or valuables, the ad dressee unsuspectingly -signs the re-. ceipt, only to discover that inside the envelope there is nothing but a "faked" letter. This trap' 'once caught an anony mous letter-writ...
CATS THAT BARK. FREAKS OF NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 January 1923
CATS THAT BARK. FREAKS OF NATURE, How would you like to have as a pet a cat that barked ? Such a freak animal was recently exhibited in Bos ton, U.S.A., and created a great deal of interest, although it is not stated if it combined :the mouse-catching propensities of tabby with the good qualities of a watch-dog. SAmerica seems to specialise in pro ducing strange freaks of Nature. One of these peculiar creatures was a giant glowworm, found in the Santa Cruz mountains, which was about 4½in. in length. When placed-in the dark, a gorgeous effect was produced by the luminous rings encircling its body. Huge blossoms of mammoth fruits are of frequent occurrence, but one of the most remarkable of such freaks is a garden daisy, which, developing the modern habit of co-operation, formed seven flowers, joined together by one. wide, flat stalk. THE GREEDY PLANT. This plant, which. was grown at Southstoke, Bath, is a shocking ex ample of what,happens on exceeding one's rations, since its conditi...

Morang Market. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 February 1923
Morang Market. Adamson Strettle and Co. Pty. Ltd. held their fortnightly sale last Monday, January 29, and notwith istanding it was a -public holiday there was a fair yarding of both cat tle and pigs, and a satisfactory atten dance of buyers, both, local and from the surrounding districts. The qual ity of the cattle was hardly up to.the usual standard, hence there were no sensational prices. At the same time they were quite up to owners' expec tations. Cows and -heifers -in milk ranged from £9/10/- to £13/5/-. Dry cattle are still:a drug on the market, and until we have a general fall of rain, we do not expect any improve ment in prices for this class of stock. Pigs were fairly welt represented. The demand was ninch better than we-expected, and prices even better than those ruling in' the Melbourne market last week.

The match commenced shortly after I a.m., and continued till 630 p.m. The North I Riding Association won on the first innings count by 22 runs. W: Laidlay (selected captain of the home team) won the toss from the visiting skipper (G. Birchall) and decided to give the visitors first use of the wicket. The opening batsmen were A. Reeves and G. Coventry, and the bowlers A. Verso and L. Morris, who bowled throughout the innings. Verso commenced with two maiden overs; bowling with the wind, his pace was terrific, and throughout the innings batsmen were ill at ease when facing him. In his third over Reevessnicked one through the slips and was smajtly caught by McKim mie. L Fitzsimons, who did not shape with any confidence, fell a victim to Verso, being caught close in by ...
