thc ejtA thxonick. WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 10, 1891. TIM ALUZA A DSPITAZL. THE Alexandra Hospital is in danger of being closed, unless help is immedi ately forthcoming. At the meeting of the Yea Shire Council, on Saturday, a letter was read from Mr. A. G. Moose, the Secretary of the Hospital, stating that it was considerably in debt, and strenuous efforts would have to be made to prevent its being closed. The Com mittee, he went on to say, naturally looked to the Council and the residents of Yea generally to extend help at a time when it was so much needed. As about 30 per cent. of the patients came from the Yea district, the annual dona tion given by the Yea Shire Council (five guineas) was, in the opinion of the Committee, not in keeping with the benefits derived by the people residing in the Yea Shire. This was very gener ally admitted by the Council, and it was unanimously agreed, on the motion of Cr. CO?NDOs, seconded by Cr. Wee ...

WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Yea Chronicle — 10 September 1891
EGHTn hours work, eight hours sleep, eight hours play, that is the cry of the I mechanic of to-day.- We, however, have no sympathy with such cries, we 4 do not believe in men who want to a work but eight hours and keep their I butchers, bakers, grocers, chemists, and even wives at work from twelve to six teen hours daily. Wives' lives now-a days., are too. freguedtly lives of drudgery, up at 5 asm. to get her husband's breakfast,.then children to wash and despatch to school, then dinner to prepare, and so on to ten at night, one continual. round of work, wash, and worry. Is it any wonder that they are prone to early decay and premature physical declinel- It is to be expected that they would be specially susceptible to anaemia; indigestion, livercomplaint and headaches.. Their mode of life and long hours indoors is almost sure to induce such diseases. On accoint of the duties. nature his imposed upon the .fair sex, great care should be takenof their physical health; on the first 'app...

Scale) pre. sided, and, in the course of a few intro. ductnry remarks, stated that the Band had already expended £50 on instruments and music, and £25 in other ways. As showing the good influence exercised by theB"nd, he mentioned that the Yea.contingent of the Victorian Mounted Rifles had never been so strong is it was at present, and this he at tributed to the martial ardour created by the Band, which then struck up the appropriate air, "Tis years since last we met,' playing it remarkably well, considering the shorttime they have been under Mr. Doody's tuition, as they also did a:walxt after the interval. 5Mr. Wall followed with " Ye gallants of England," which he sang right heartily. Mr. Cor~iss, who essayed the rather dificult ballad, " Our hands have met, -but not our hearts," did fair...
