THE SUPREME SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 30 November 1917

THE SUPREME SACRIFICE. Our Yarra Glen correspondent writes :-Word was received here yesterday (Tuesday) from the Defence Department that Private Jack Irvine (previously reported missing), had been killed. Private Irvine went to the front some two years ago and took part in some of the big battles in France. Much sympathy is felt for his bereaved brother and sister, \Ve regret to state that it has been officially reported that Corporal Clive Gordon Clarke, son of the late Mr Alfred E. Clarke and Mrs Clarke, " Heatherbrae," Caulfield, has been killed in action. Corporal Clarke left Australia as a sapper in the head quarters section of the First Divisional Signal Company in October, 1914. H-l was in the first camp at Mena and at the landing at Gallipoli, where he served 4 mionths. lHe was invalided back to Egypt. Subsequently he served on the Suez Canal and on the Sinai Desert. He certainly did " his bit," and Mr L,. W. Clarke, " .inton Grange," Hlazelglen, tells us that all his letter...

AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEALTH POLITICAL PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 30 November 1917

AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEAL'rH POLITICAL PARTIEr. (BY THELMA.) Under Fisher's leadership the .Labor Parly made great strides for. words towards. independent political power. It will he remembered that it supported the Deskin ministry up to this tilme against the Reid Party. Now the Labor support was withdrawn and the Deakin overnmeont collapsed. Thus the first Fisher Ministry came into being. There was simply an amalgamation of parties for the time being, for the new Government had not a majority of its own but would certainly try to secure one at the next election. There was again ajoining together of oppos. tig forces to defect the Fisher Go. vernmnent this time--and it new Go veronment known as tile Fusion or Desnkin.Co'k Ministry was established in .Iane, 1909. Reid was sent to L.tndnn as the first Commonwealth High Commnissioner. In 1910 the electors of the Common wealth beillg otanfued, no doubt by the 'coltplicated changes mentioned above, showed themselves adverse to the Ministry....

WONGA PARK. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT). FLOWER DAY. This event was celebrated on Satur- day afternoon last in connection with the local State school to raise funds for the soldiers abroad. The President (Cr H.

Many donations of goods, farm produce, and flowers were handed in and a brisk business was done. In the evening a concert was held when the hall was packed. The final result is not yet to hand, but up to the present over £20 is in hand with more to follow.

MUSINGS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER.   Mr Editor,— Being in a thoughtful mood at the very interesting ceremony that took place at Hurstbridge on the 3rd instant, at which you and I were present, many memories were aroused in my mind of days long gone bye, when I, a laddie in my teens, first saw the now historic place called Hurstbridge. My first visit to Hurstbridge was in the early sixties, when I was in company with Henry Haley (who in those days went under the name of Gibson), John Grierson (who, in the early days, in con- junction with my father, held the opposite side of the Diamond Creek as a cattle run), and Mr William Walker, all well known men in those days. A little later on, I well remember the many kangaroo hunts, also the mad races after the mobs of wild horses that used to roam the hills on each side of the Diamond Creek. The ways of living gradually gave place to a different way of doing. Orchards began to creep in and gradually extend ; dairy farmin...

The reinforcements referendum will take place on Thursday, December 20th next, and we earnestly request all our readers to Vote Yes. Because it is the only thing every true Australian can do. Because reinforcements are needed to assist our brave lads now fighting in the trenches. Because the sending of reinforce- ments will help to save many of the lives of our lads who are at the front. Because it is the bounden duty of every man to do his "little bit" to assist his country in time of need. Because the voluntary system has failed. Because we are fighting for Christian- ity. Because the craven cry "we've done   enough" is false; we must keep on doing our best. Because the casting of a "No"   vote will be pandering to the shirker, the coward, and the disloyal. Because the best within us impels us to prove our...
