Correspondence. STRAY STOCK. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

Correspondence. STRAY STOCK. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-The council has been good to us in providing a water trough for those who ride and drive through the township, but I do not think they expected that it would be the nocturnal rendezvous for horses and cows from near and far. Having.gone so far as to supply a much needed convenience, why not go a little further and supply a means of dispensing with a great inconvenience-wandering stock-by giving us a ranger.-Yours, &c., RESIDENT. Eltbam, 27 a 23.

Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

Thoughts. (BY MERNDA.) What -a large proportion of the people of this fair State of Victoria are fond of pleasure. Mly reason for this thought is the gradually increasing number of pleasure seekers that pass along the \Whittlesea .main road at holiday times. Motor cars of all sizes, the noisy motor bicycle and side-car, horse vehicles of all kinds and de scriptions, heavily laden with happy looking men, women and children, all on pleasure bent, and I have no doubt, in the main duly finding it a pleasant change from the city life to wander about the lonely spots at South 'Morang and the banks of the winding :Plenty river, with the sinuouswindings in and out of that river and the beau tiful scenery on its banks- between South Morang and the incomparable Yan Yean Reservoir.; from thence to the Plenty mountains, with their changing hues. It was an interesting sight to see the pienic.partia dotted here and there up the valley of the Plenty. Here a family group, there, perchance. a party ...

BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

BEES. ' A swarm of bees recently.decided to make their home in the. roof of St. Margaret's Church of England, but from various standpoints the home was not a. desirable one. Last week the slates were removed to see what could be done to dislodge these insects. During the early .part of the week, however, the vicar, succeeded in dis turbing the happy home, and the bees made their exit. Quite a quantity of honey was obtained, most of the comb being in good condition.. " As electric power is to be used in connection with the working of a gold mine at Diamond Creek, :the question of lighting the town with electricity has already been men tioned; 'and is understood that the company will be preparbd'to consider a propcial. :

STOLEN FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

STOLEN FOWLS. On Sunday evening thieves paid a visit to Mr Meisner's poultry farm at Eltham, and succeeded in stealing 33 white leghorn fowls.. Mr. Meisner has for years past taken numerous prizes for his stock at. the various shows, in cluding the Melbourne show. At the 192I Melbourne show he practically swept the pool in the utility classes. The 33 hens comprised a pen, and were all prize birds. Mr Meisner keeps several dogs, but they did not give the alarm. The whole thing was done in silence, which tends to show ,that the affair was well. planned, and probably some anaesthetic was used to prevent the fowls from crying' out. The black trackers vwere summoned, and even able to trace-the thieves, but. lost the tracks on the hard roadway. Evidently a vehicle was waiting there to receive the plunder. It is hoped for. the benefit of the district that these .petty sneak thieves are brought to justice.

PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

0 PICTURES. A picture show was held in ,the Public Hall on Saturday evening. The proprietors had electric light installed throughout the building, and music was a welcome innovation. The class of pictures shown was well above the average. The comedy was supplied in the screening of ." The .. Twilight Baby. ' The thrills, :however, were reserved to- the last 'item,' when "Shaking Dice with Deahli,'" starring Sniiowy Baker,.was screened i Perhaps' this item was further .enj6yed by the. knowledge that this aitbr 'is ifi Ais-" tralian, and the setting of the picture -Australian also. The house was a large one, and such an initial success must surely have been flattering to the proprietors. -These pictures will be shown each week.

THE FASTEST WALKER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

THE FASTEST WALKER. After the Bishop of London's state ment that the only person he knows who can walk faster than himself is Sir John Jellicoe. there: is nothing for it (says ;: the "Daily-Chronicle") but a match between the two. Prob ably the fastest walker ever known in England, Captain Barclay.; not' excep ted, was' Joseph Calib, a native, of Dumbarton, on: the Clyde. At times he could with ease do nine miles .and a quarter an hour, and he could keep this pace upo for two hours on end.: Calib's best performance was ,begun on January 2, 1820, when he sitarted to walk as far as he could withouit a break. In 802 hours 20 minutes he covered 620 miles, the average' pace being a little over six miles an hour. The auburn-haired woman looks best in the browns that shade into the tones of her hair or in the rich :dark grecns. The yellow-haired girl can wear red. The greens, too, are de lightful on her ; also certain yellows and blacks. White is less becoming. Blues, .~!part arly the pale...

78 TIMES ROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

78 TIMES ROUND THE WORLD; There is a man in London at prc sent who has. travelled from Vancou ver to London fifty-one times. As it is upwards of 10,000 miles there and back, this man has travelled over half a million miles in this way, or to the moon and back-aild-then round the world. But though this seems a big, feat for one lifetime, there is- a retired commander of thieCunard line who has crossed the " .Atlantic no fewer than 550 times, making 1,876,600 iiies or four times to the moon' and back! Or, to put it another way, seventy eight times round the world at the equator !

RAILWAY EXTENSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 March 1923

RAILWAY EXTENSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER Sir,-The statements of your cor respondent "Strathewen" are sub stantially correct. As a Kinglake resident, I say it would reduce the case for railway extension to absurdity to advocate it via Queenstown, which is a decadent mining township, and is already well served by Varra Glen and Hurstbridge railway stations. Dairying or sheep raising is non-existent, as the land is so poor that it will not grow grass or other fodder. Mining, like tobacco growing, is now a solitary novelty. Fruitgrowing is mostly con fined to a few. creek flats, and the timber is only useful at firewood.- Yours, &c., ANTI-HUMBUG.
