ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, DIAMOND CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 December 1917
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, DIAMOND CREEK. (By Ovu OWN REPORTER.) One of the most successful enter lainments ever produced at Diamond Creek took place last Saturday evening, when the scholars attending the Nillumilik school gave an entertain ment in aid of the Schools' Patriotic Fund. Trhe hall was crowded with visitors fronm far and near, and these witnessed a program worthy of any city in Victoria. The items were varied and interesting and were placed on the stage in such quick succession that the audience was, in many cases, astounded at the rapidity of the changes necessary for such to take place. This was due to the effective work of the dressers, Mesdames God frey, W. Edmonds and G Edmonds, who were ably supported by Messrs Godfrey and Cusack, upon whom fell the arduous work of the stage effects. The whole of these helpers are to be congratulated on the efficiency of their work, which could not be surpassed. To Mrs Cusack belongs the honour of the evening for her most willing volun tar...

GOLD IN DUSTBINS £3,000,000 A YEAR FROM EMPTY TINS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 December 1917
GOLD IN DUSTBINS 4.3,000,000 A YEAR FROM EMPTY' TINS. One,of the most curious results or the war has been the increase in the value of waste, some of which is now worth' nearly as much when it is' waste as when it was new. Waste paper has become quite val uable. Rag and bone merchants are buying up every scrap of paper they can find. This is.on account of the great difficulty of transporting wood pulp across the North Sea. Owing to the submarine menlce, our stock of' paper in England is becoming so. scarce that many newspaper firmns, following the example of the proprie tors of the-'Times.: are seriously. thinking of raising the price of their dailies. Certain woollen rags cost to-day" five times as much as they did be fore the war, because of the dye-stuffs. with which they are impregnated. If every consumer of: tinned com- modities could- return the empty re- ceptacles to an- organisation which. could work them up again into useful articles, an enormous source of eco nomy would be...
WAYS TO PRESERVE GREEN PEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 21 December 1917
WAYS TO PRESERVE GREEN PEAS. Boll the peas in slightly salted water drain through a colander when cold, add a little cayenne, a, tablespoonful each of whole mustard and chopped horseradish, cover with strong vinegar and bottle. Allow an ounce of salt to a quart of water, boil for 20 minutes. Place some of this water in a pan, and when boiling add enough peas to fill one or two preserve bottles: allow them to boil for about five minutes, lift with a strainer, and fill into bottles ; then pour over the boiling salted water from the other pan, and seal care fully. A simple plan is to fill wide-mouth *d quart bottles or jars with the shelled peas, rejecting those which are bruised or discoloured. Stand the jars in a pan of cold water over gas. or fire. When the water boils, take out the jars, and at once cork them tightly and seal them. Keep in a cool, dry place. For the last method the peas do not require to be very young, al though they must be freshly gather ed. Shell them, and put t...
