DISTRICT NEWS. Gould. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 June 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. (From Our Own Correspondents). Gould. The bridge over the Tyers at Mrs Gould's is being repaired, just in time to save a good deal of inconvenience, as one sbire (Narracan) bad already notified closing it. The station siding at Gould is finished, except the approaches, which are promised later on. Residents on both sides, that is on the Narracan and the Walhalla Shire sides, are about to petition their respective councils re garding the making of roads to the station. These roads were recently surveyed by Staff-surveyor Atkinson, C.E., who laid out an excellent system of roads to the railway from the adjacent country. . The railway is being fenced by a gang of men sent up by the Depart ment. This will enable trains to run at night and relieve the congestion of traffic in timber, which has occurred this autumn. Very heavy losses have resulted to contractors and sawmillers lately through being unable to get their limber away.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 June 1914

[ LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene" in Melbourne. There has just arrived in Melbourne a charming young heiress. She is of Semetic and Spanish extraction, and, though not quite unfamiliar with Aus tralia and things Australian, this is not her native place. Quite a roman tic story is connected with her. Her mother, who is the wife of the head mail in a big business organisation, was a Spanish heiress of good quality. I She came to Australia years ago, a ; handsome, highly-accomplished young j •matron who had been used to moving ; in good society. Her dismay may ( be imagined when she found, that in , Melbourne there were then hardly any Jewish people received into the inner circle of Society, spelt with .a big S. To be strictly correct, there . were just one or two Jewish families . received, and they themselves were j excessively exclusive. Those who call ed upon her were of the pushing type, : and not at all the class she had been i accustomed to. She was as one os- j tracised, having noth...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914

FKOIff VARIOUS SOURCES. Adrian Velancourt was a tall, pale, serious young man earning thirty-five shillings a week as a solicitor's cleric His heart was pure and eager, and his physical beauty was such as to make young women cast sidelong eyes of marvel as they passed him. Glad eyes, in fact. To him came a Cradle Snatcher in the shape of the land lady's daughter. "If you're good," she said to her victim, "you shall have some treacle-pudding." It was that fatal treacle-pudding that lured poor Adrian to his doom. It was as deadly as Mr. Pickwick's "chops and tomato sauce." From treacle-pudding Cissie quickly advanced to the darning of Adrian's socks and the sewing on o? Adrian's buttons. Young men, never let a Cradle-Snatclier darn your socks or sew on your buttons. It is the be ginning of the end. The next move of the artful Cissie was to put flowers in Adrian's room. That trick softened his innocent young heart, and then came the terrible evening when Cis sie found him sitting in th...
