  • 21 Feb 1918, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. On Saturday evening a social meeting assembled in the hall, the object of which was to bid farewell to Mr James Hopkin and family, who have for the past few years conducted the post office here. Owing to family considerations Mr Hopkins is going back to town during this week. Miss Hopkins, who has been post-mistress during these years, has from her obliging disposition become a great favorite. The Rev. James Wilson presided, and after a few very pointed references to the lively interests Mr Hopkins has taken in all matters pertaining to the affairs of the district expressed the general regret of the residents. He then presented Miss Hopkins with an elegant gold wristlet watch as a token of esteem, expressing regret at her departure. Miss Hopkins, in a few very well appointed remarks, returned thanks. Mr Hopkins was then presented with a case of pipes and pouch. In returning thanks for such an unlooked for testimony of esteem, he through family reasons had decided on the change, but his mind would often revert to the pleasant associations of Upper Beaconsfield. Song, sentiment, and a social cup of tea brought the evening to a close. Mr Peterson, a former resident here but lately of Dandenong has bought Mr Hopkin's property, and Miss Peterson, a young lady of attractive bearing and manners, will act as post-mistress.23

  • 2 Jan 1909, OUR LETTER BOX. A LITTLE PRIZEWINNER. "Haddie Ville," Beaconsfield North.—Dear Aunt Connie,— This is the first time I have written to you and hope to be accepted as one of your many nieces. Beaconsfteld is situa-ted about 28 miles from Melbourne. It contains one post-office, a hotel, a State school, and an assembly hall, in which church service is held. I am in the fourth class. I have one brother and two sisters. My brother and I go to school, which is 3¼ miles round the road from where we live. I am saving post cards, and have about 36. The grass is growing nicely now. There is a swallow's nest up on our wall. It had three young ones in it. We have eight fowls and they are lay ing well. At our school picnic I won two prizes. One was a nurse and the other a skipping rope. My father has been taking "The Weekly Times," and I like reading the Young Folks' Page. With love to Cousins Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben, not forgetting yourself. I remain your would-be niece,
    ANNIE S. GLISMAN.
    P.S.— Please, may I write again? My age is 10 years and 10 months. (I am very pleased to add you to our large family of nieces, Annie, and shall be pleased to hear from you again. — Aunt Connie.)19
  • 6 Jan 1915, FIRST AID Some time ago a ladies' class was formed at Beaconsfield Upper for instruction in first aid, and the usual course of lectures was delivered by Dr Langmore.

The names of the successful candidates are: Mrs Harvey Smith; Miss G. Hopkins; A Glismann; D. Stenhouse; L. Luke.20
  • Aug 1997, Glismann ties with Upper Beac severed
    Upper Beaconsfield's longest-living resident, Annie Glismann, has died, aged 99, ending the Glismann family name.
    Annie was the granddaughter of Upper Beaconsfield's first permanent settler, Johann Glismann, who took out a selection in 1875. Her mother Harriet (Miss Audsley) was the town's first resident school teacher.
    Annie was born in the old family home in St Georges Road on 25 February 1898, the first of Hans and Harriet's children, and she spent all her life in Upper Beaconsfield until moving to the special accommodation home, Peninsula Lodge, at Carrum.
    Annie was a shy, retiring person who became progressively deaf since contracting measles at the age of 29.
    She was renowned for her crochet work, creating many beautiful rugs for Red Cross, St Vincent de Paul and other organisations. Approaching her 100th year last year, she made 11 rugs. She had also worked for the Association for the Blind, keeping up a family tradition. In her younger years Annie was the official scorer for the cricket club, and in 1932 the club presented her with a gold pen in appreciation.
    This was one of her most enjoyable social activities. In her later years she concentrated on caring for her father.
    She was a person of old-fashioned values, and those close to her remember a private but friendly person with a great sense of humour. Annie Sarah Glisman died on 10 August at Beleura Private Hospital at Mornington.5

  • 1 Jan 1910, CHERRY PICKING. "Laluma," Beaconsfield Upper.-Dear Uncle Ben, — I take for my subject "Cherry Pick-ing." My grandfather has a large orchard. The principal varieties of fruit grown in it are apples, pears and cherries. The latter are now ripe, and for the past month my grandfather and his employes have been busy picking and sending them away to market. The pickers are divided into two parties, one being called the upper and the other the lower set. The lower set goes first and picks all the fruit they can reach from the ground, while the upper set follows with their step-ladders and pick all the fruit on the higher branches. Some of them in grand father's orchard are very high. A man standing on a high step-ladder cannot reach the tops of some of the branches. Each picker carries a bucket, slung over his shoulders with a strap, into which he drops the fruit as he picks it. Whilst picking he has to take care that he puts no damaged ones in the bucket. When his bucket is full he empties it into a case. Each case is lined with white paper. When the case is full the nailer-up comes and sees that each case is properly filled, and then nails the lid on. Every, afternoon the carter comes with his waggon and pair of horses. The cases are loaded into the waggon and taken to the railway station and sent on to Melbourne, where the agent takes charge of them and sells them to the various shopkeepers. If prices are good in some of the other States he ships them away. Trust ing that I have not made this letter too long, and with with kind regards to Aunt Connie and Cousins Connie and Florrie, I am, your loving nephew, JOHN GLISMANN, aged 9 years.
    (Glad to have heard from you, John. Your grand-father's orchard must look lovely with all the ripe and ripening fruit. Which set of fruit-pickers do you belong to, and do you whistle all the time you are picking.—Uncle Ben.)25

    I would not recommend Jack Glissman of Upper Beaconsfield, to use luminous paint for floats for night fishing. I have a recipe for making it, not available at the moment, which will be sent in a few days.
    As a boy I fished constantly at night, and found that a white goose feather the top half cut off, and the quill passed through the float, could be seen even on the darkest night, We always used them when eel fishing at night.27

  • 7 Nov 1908, A VERY PRETTY PLACE. Leintwardine, Beaconsfleld Upper. — Dear Aunt Connie,— This is the first time I have written to you, and I hope you will accept me as one of your many nieces. Beaconsfield is a very pretty place, situated about 28 miles from Melbourne. The place where we live is situated between two creeks. In front of us is Stony creek, and at the back is Cardina creek. The Cardina creek has a great many fish in it, and we will be glad when close season is over, as we all like fishing. Stony creek flows through my grandfather's property. My grandfather lives just a little way up the road from us. He has a lovely orchard. The cherry trees looked lovely when they were in bloom. The apples and pears had a number of blossoms, and there is every prospect of a good crop. In front of his place is a beautiful row of pine trees, and it is very pleasant to hear the wind in them. We live about two miles from the store, and I like going over with my father. We have been taking "The Weekly Times" for a number of years, and I take a great interest in the Young Folk's Page. With love to Cousins Connie and Florrie, not forgetting yourself, I remain, your would-be niece, LOTTIE G. PETERSEN, aged 12 years and 7 months.
    P.S. —Please, may I write again. (I am pleased to accept you as one of our nieces. Lottie, and you may write again. —Aunt Connie.)14
  • 30 Jan 1909, A LITTLE PRIZE-WINNER. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield North. — Dear Aunt Connie,— I am trying for this month's prize. The first thing I will tell you about will be our school picnic. It was held on November 13. It was a lovely day, and there were a good few people present. In the morning, most of the contests were held, and in the afternoon we held the races. I won five prizes, a bottle of scent, a butter-dish, a crumb brush and tray, a cup and saucer, and three yards of flowered muslin. A lady who was staying at our place gave me a nice book to make up the half-dozen prizes, it is called The Little Duke. I think I was very lucky. My little cousin got the silver medal, and he is very proud of it. In the skipping race one of my "Weekly Times" cousins fell down, and hurt her wrist, but she got third prize all the same, because there were only three that went in for it.
    I collect post cards, and have about 44, including 10 different views of Beaconsfield. Four of them are views of our school picnic. We went out fishing the other day, and only caught five worth keeping. One little girl and myself were fishing at one hole, but we had to leave it, because we saw a large black snake just near us. When we were tired we had a rest, and a bathe. There is a lovely bathing hole not far from our place, and sometimes I go for a bathe. It is about two chains long. My uncle was out fishing the day before us, and he caught ten nice ones. It is very dangerous to go out gathering ferns this time of the year, as there are so many snakes about here. I have seen a good many this year. There have been a lot of bush fires about here lately. It does seem a pity that all the pretty trees are blackened, and the grass all burnt. With love to Cousins Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben, and not forgetting yourself, and wishing you all a bright and prosperous New Year. I remain, your loving niece, LOTTIE PETERSEN. Age, 12 years and 10 months.
    (Thank you, dear, for your good wishes.— Aunt Connie.)15
  • 1 May 1909, A LETTER OF THANKS. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper.— Dear Aunt Connie,— I am writing this to thank you for the prize you so kindly awarded me. I am enclosing sixpence of it for the cot, and with the remaining two shillings I shall get a nice book to keep in memory of my first prize for letter writing. Well, dear Aunt Connie, I must now tell you how I spent, my Easter holidays. On Good Friday I went for a long walk along the Cardina Creek. It is a nice walk, as the creek bends and turns so much that in some places there is only a very narrow strip of land between two bends. The banks, which in some places are very steep, are covered with the most lovely ferns. I did not pick any, because I had a good distance to walk, and they would only be withered up before I got home. On Easter Monday I went for a picnic and a long walk along the Stony Creek. We had dinner and afternoon tea on the creek. It was quite nice to have "billy" tea made with creek water. Where the creek was full of rocks I had some fun bounding from one to another. While the billy was boiling for afternoon tea I had a paddle in the creek. The water was very cool and refreshing, after a long walk. While I was paddling I picked a nice bunch of ferns, which I took home to some little children staying at our place. After we left the creek, we went up a steep hill, and came to an old burnt down house. It was burnt down by last year's bush fires. After seeing this, we wended our way over hills and gullies to our home, after spending a most enjoyable day. With love to Cousins Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben, and not forgetting yourself, i remain, your loving niece,— LOTTIE PETERSON.
    (It was kind of you to send some or your prize-money to the Hospital. "Billy tea" is always enjoyable when you are out picnicing. —Aunt Connie).16
  • 17 Jul 1909, A TRIP TO TOWN. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper.— Dear Aunt Connie,— I am going to tell you about a most enjoyable trip I had to Melbourne with five of my "Weekly Times" cousins. I had to get up about half-past four o'clock to get ready in time to catch the coach. I had about two miles to walk to where the coach starts from. Mother walked over with me, as it was dark. There I met Cousins Connie and Florrie, and we had a lovely drive to the station, and then a nice train trip. I was delighted to meet Cousins Connie and Florrie on the way down, and we had so much to say to each other, that we had not time to get our tickets, so we got into the train without them. Connie got out at the next station, and got them. We arrived in the city safely, and then went and did some shop ping. We got some dolls, and a book to take to the hospital. Connie and Florrie bad some nice doll's clothes made, and when we had our dinner at the Coffee Palace, the gentlemen there was kind enough to let us go upstairs and dress the dolls. Then we went down to Flinders street station and met May Lovell and Florrie Frenchman under the clocks. We were to meet May Lucas there, but as she did not come, we walked up Swanston street, where she overtook us. Then we made our way to the Children's Hospital. When we reached it, we had a long time to wait before we could see the Matron, to see if we might go through. When she came to us she said she was very sorry, but she thought it was best for us not to go through, as there was so much diphtheria, and scarlet fever at the time. The Matron told us to let her know when we thought of coming again, and she would let us know if we might go through. However, we left our presents for "The Weekly Times." The Aunt Connie, The Young Victoria, The Police and State School Cots. Cousin Connie had a nice doll and drawing slate. Cousin Florrie took a doll and a lovely bunch of chrysanthemums. Florrie Frencham had two nice dolls, May Lovell had two dolls also. May Lucas had a doll and a lovely basket of violets, and I had a nice doll and a bunch of ferns and wild heath; also a nice little story book. After that we all made our way to the station, and took the train to our respec tive homes.— I remain, your affectionate niece, LOTTIE G. PETERSEN. (I am glad to hear that you had such an enjoyable trip, Lottie. The stationmasler told me about your getting into the train ticket-less, although You were in ample time to get them. You will see in this column the Matron's thanks for the presents.— Aunt Connie).17
  • 20 Nov 1909, OUR LETTER BOX. VERY ENJOYABLE HOLIDAY. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper.— My Dear Aunt Connie,— I have not written to you for a good time now, and as I have just returned from my trip to Kyneton. I thought, perhaps you would like to hear something about it. The morning we were to start hap pened to be fine. We were up about 5 o'clock to get ready to catch our train, and you may be sure we did not waste time, as we did not want to lose the train. However, we got to the station all right, and had some little time to wait. We arrived in town a little after ten, and, as our train did not start till 12.15, we had about two hours to ourselves. We had our lunch in the "Covent Gardens," did a little business, and then took the tram to Spencer street station. We had to wait a good while until the train started, and I was not sorry when it did as I was tired of wait ing. After a while I began to think the train was never going to get to Kyneton. At last it stopped, and, of course, I looked out to see what station it was, and I was surprised to see we had only got as far as Macedon. After we were through the station we began to see the mount coming into view. When we were right opposite the one side of it it did look steep. It made me feel as if I would like to get out and climb up it, as I am very fond of climbing hills. I have heard that anyone with a pair of glasses could see the Beaconsfield Store from the top of it. Once we were past the mount we began to feel nearer our destination, and very soon we were in Kyneton. When we got out of the train all the "cabbies" were after us to see if we wanted a cab. How ever, we were quite independent, as some of our friends were coming to meet us. In a little while we and our luggage were safely packed in the trap, and were driving up Mollison street, which is now the main street. After following different roads and passing some fine old stone houses we found our selves at our destination. That night we were too tired to go for a walk, and we were not sorry when it was bed-time. The next morning I went for a walk along the Campaspe River. I did see a difference between it and our creeks. In the afternoon three of us walked to the mineral springs. It was a warm day, and a drink of mineral water was very refreshing after our walk. When we all had a good drink we filled our two bottles to take home to the others. We had to be careful and not shake the bottles, for if we did they would burst. The next morn ing we drove into Kyneton. On one part of the road going in one can get a lovely view of the show grounds, and also of the Kyneton Hospital. We went in again in the evening to see what Kyneton streets were like when they were lit up. The Church of England is a fine old building, with ivy cling ing all the way up the front of it.
    The next afternoon (Sunday) I went to Sunday school with one of our friends, who is organist there. It is held in the River View State school, which is just a little way from where I was staying. The next day we drove to Drummond, which is 10 or 12 miles from River View. When going there we passed through a small township called Malmsbury, and also passed the gardens, which look very pretty at a distance. We passed the Malmsbury re servoir, which supplies Castlemaine and Bendigo, and we also passed several mines. After lunch my friend and myself set out and followed up a little creek till we found ourselves on a small promontory, with the creek on one side and a big swamp on the other. We found some very pretty blue wild violets among the trees. Going home we had a better view of the reservoir, also of the Malmsbury cemetery. The next day we drove into Kyneton to see the gardens, and next morning we left Kyneton by the 8.15 train, and arrived in Spencer Street a little after ten.- I was not sorry when we reached home, as I was tired of travelling. I think you will agree with me in saying I had a splendid holiday. With fond love to Connie, Florrie, Uncle Ben and yourself. I remain, your affectionate niece—LOTTIE G. PETERSEN.
    (I think you spent a very enjoyable holiday, Lottie, but did not take enough rest.— Aunt Connie.)18
  • 5 Feb 1910, SOME GOOD FISHING. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper. — My Dear Aunt Connie — I am writing to thank you for the prize you so kindly awarded me. I had no idea I would get a prize for my letter, and was surprised when I saw my name in the list of winners. I am enclosing one shilling of it for the hospital. I hope you spent a very merry Christmas. We all did, only the weather was rather hot. We went for a very nice picnic on Boxing Day, and we have been having some very good fishing. Each time we got a nice catch. We had a lovely rain last night. It has made everything fresh again. I have three deaf little pet kittens, and I feed them with fresh milk twice a day. They do like it. There is also a dear little black puppy up here. He is just beginning to get mischievous, and carry things away. His name is "Bulger," and he is very playful. With fond love to Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben and yourself, from your affectionate niece —LOTTIE G. PETERSEN. (It was good of you, Lottie, to send some of your prize money to the hospital.— Aunt Con nie.)19
  • 16 Apr 1910, YOUNG FOLKS LETTER BOX. BEACONSFIELD FRUIT SHOW. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper — My dear : Aunt Connie,—I thought I would write and tell you about the Beaconsfield Show; which was held in the Assembly Hall on Easter Sat urday, and which turned out a decided success in every way. The exhibits were very good, and there were quite a number of them. The 'Toomuc Valley" orchard had two very nice collections of apples, for which it got first and second prizes. My uncle got first prize for "Rome Beauty" apples. The fancy work was very nice. My little cousin got a special prize for sewing by a girl 11½ years of age, and it was very nicely done. There was a very good display of vegetables. The watermelon that got first prize, was a lovely one, and some of the pumpkins were very large. My father got first for household pumpkin, first for carrots, first for beetroot, first for beans, and second for tomatoes, also first for onions, so he did very well. He also got first for a collection of dried fruits. I entered a bunch of wild flowers, but did not get a prize. The Melbourne Cavalry and some of the moun-ted cadets were camped in Captain Rushall's-paddock. Some of them came to the show, and the band came and played selections during the evening. I went to the church parade on Sunday. It was very nice and a great number came to it. It has been lovely wea ther for the holidays, but I hope we will soon get some rain, as the crops must soon be sown and the flowers begin to look faded and dry again. There were a great many people staying up here. Nearly all the boarding-houses were full. There were also a good few Boy Scouts camped up here. With fond love to Cousins Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben, and yourself, from your ever affectionate niece. LOTTIE G. PETERSEN.
    (I am glad to hear that your father was so successful at the show, Lottie, also to hear that you had such a good time.)20
  • 18 Jun 1910, AMONG THE HILLS. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper. — Dear Aunt Connie, — This time I am going to tell you of a drive we had, around Emerald. It was a beautiful morning and father proposed we should go for a drive and take our lunch with us. I had never been that way before, so I was delighted. On the first part of the way were a good few orchards. Then we came to the Beaconsfield North church. After going some distance further, we turned off in the direction of Emerald. We could see a great distance around us from there. There were hills on every side of us. They looked so pretty with the fruit trees in their autumn leaves, dotted here and there, and between them the ploughed land with the crops just coming up. At intervals on either side of the road we came upon houses, some with small orchards and some with crops around them. Then we began to come to the hills. On one side the hills rose above us, and on the other side were steep gullies, the banks of which were full of tall tree ferns, and giant gum trees. As we got further on, we found that on the cultivated hills, tall tree ferns were dotted here and there. They looked so nice. When we came to the township of Emerald we had our lunch, and gave the horses a feed. While the billy was being boiled, I gathered some pink heath. After lunch, while the horses were finishing their feed, mother and I went for a walk along the railway line. It is a narrow gauge line, which runs from Gembrook to Fern Tree Gully, where it joins the other line. We saw one of the carriages and a truck. They looked so much narrower than the other ones. There is a station in Emerald, and it looks so pretty with the tree ferns in front of it. Emerald is only a small township. As far as I could see there was a state school, a church, and two boarding-houses, but I did not notice any store. After we came back, we once more started off through the township, until we came to the main Narre Warren road, which we turned down, as we were going home that way. We had a very good view from the part of the road between Emerald and Paradise Valley. After passing Paradise we once more began to get among the hills, so we could not see very far. On one part of the road, we could see our home; although we were miles from it. After passing the Narre Warren North church, we crossed the Cardina and Muddy Creeks. At the latter we gave the horses a drink. Then we began climbing the hills again. After about another three-quarters of an hour we arrived home, after having had a most interesting and enjoyable drive along a road we had never been before. With fond love to Cousins Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben ; and yourself, from your ever affectionate niece, LOTTIE G. PETERSEN. (I am glad you had such a lovely drive, Lottie. The hills around Emerald are very pretty.— Aunt Connie.)21
  • 21 Jan 1911, OUR LETTER BOX. A SERIES OF ENTERTAINMENTS. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper. — Dear Aunt Connie,—As I have not written to you for some time, no doubt you will think I have forgotten you, but I still take a keen interest in the young Folks' Page, and en-joy reading the letters from my various cousins. This time I will take for my subject, a series of Entertainments held here during the Christmas holidays. The first of these was a monster Christmas Tree for the children, which was held on December 23. In the afternoon they had races for the girls and boys. Then they had tea, first for the children, and then for the adults. After tea there was a magic lantern entertainment, and some very nice pictures were shown. While they were waiting for it to become dark enough for the pictures, they had some songs and recitations by different children, and one gentleman told them a story. After the magic lantern, was the Christmas tree. It looked lovely, as the curtain was raised, and revealed the tree, which was decorated with little candles, and glistening strings; drooping from it. On either side of the tree were tables, containing the presents for the girls, and the other those for the boys. There was also a bran pie, gift table, and sweet stall; but these things were not given away like the presents. On the Monday after (Boxing Day) there was a concert by the Beaconsfield Upper Dramatic Club, in aid of the cricket club. It was a great success, and the hall was full, in spite of the threatening even ing. After the concert there was a dance, but we did not stay long at that. On the following Wednesday there was a tennis tournament, and a cake and apron fair. The different stalls consisted of an ice cream stall, bran pie, vegetable and produce stall, book-stall; also sweets, apron, and fancy goods stalls. There was also afternoon tea and raspberries and cream to be bought. On the same evening there was a grand concert all by Melbourne artists. During the interval ice cream and sweets were carried round. On the Saturday evening the Beaconsfield Upper Fruitgrowers' Association held the annual ball. They danced till about 11 o'clock, and then had supper. After that they danced till 12 o'clock, and then rang the old year out and the New Year in. The entertainments ended on the following Monday with another concert by the dramatic club. I went to the Christmas tree, cricketers' concert, tennis tournament and grand concert, and I enjoyed myself very much at them all. I have joined the tennis club and I like the game very much. With fond love to Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben and yourself, and also wishing you, Uncle Ben, Connie, Florrie, and all my cousins a happy and prosperous new year, from your affectionate niece Lottie G. Peter sen.22
  • 6 May 1911, OUR LETTER BOX. THE BEACONSFIELD FRUITGROWERS' SHOW. Leintwardine, Beaconsfield Upper. — Dear Aunt Connie. — I will take for my subject the Beaconsfield Fruitgrowers' Annual Show, and The Tennis Tournament. The show was held on Easter Saturday, the day being nice and fine. The first features to claim your at tention, as you entered were the cases of lovely apples. On one side of the door were those packed for export, and on the other side those packed for the local market. One side of the hall was nothing but fruit and it looked lovely. The other side was occupied by the preserved fruit, dried fruit, pickles and sauces, jams, cookery and fancy work. The big back room was full of vegetables and some very good exhibits were shown. One of the small back rooms was full of flowers. They looked lovely especially the collections of cut flow ers. We took prizes for dried fruit, brace of cucumbers and onions, and second for vegetable marrow, household pumpkin, cu cumbers, parsnips, carrots, bottled fruit and pickles and sauces. So I think we did fairly well. In the afternoon there was an apple packing contest, points being given for packing, grading wrapping, and time. It was very interesting to watch them. During the evening there were several items, such as music, singing and recitations, which passed the evening off very pleasantly. On Easter Monday the Beaconsfield Upper Tennis Club held an open tournament. It was a glori ous day, and everything passed off well. The first prizes were a nice silver-backed mirror for the lady winner, and a silver candlestick for the gentleman; while the second prizes were a nice vase for the lady, and a silver matchbox for the gentleman. In the even ing the Beaconsfield dramatic club held a concert. There were two plays by the dra matic club, and several items by different visitors. I went to all the Easter functions and enjoyed myself very much. I will now close with love to Connie and Florrie, Uncle Ben and yourself. Again thanking you for the prize. Your affectionate niece, LOTTIE G. PETERSEN.
    (I am very pleased to hear that you were so successful at the show, Lottie, and hope you will have more 1st prizes next year.— Aunt Connie.)23
  • 29 Jul 1911, ENTERTAINMENTS AT BEACONSFIELD UPPER. Lottie G. Petersen, of "Leintwardine," Beaconsfield Upper, writes: — This time I will take for my subject several entertainments held here during the last few months. The first of these was the "State school picnic," which was held on "Empire Day." It was to have been held in the recreation ground, but the day was so wet they had to have it in the hall. The children went down to the school at the usual time and saluted the flag. Then two gentlemen addressed them. They then marched up to the hall, where dinner was awaiting them. After dinner they played in the hall, while the adults had their dinner.
    When everything was finished they had some contests, such as "placing the eye in the pig," skipping and winding cotton on a reel. I went in for the skipping contest for the big girls, and came second, for which I got a nice hair tidy. After the contests they played games while the ladies prepared afternoon tea. When it was ready the adults had theirs, and then tea was set for the children. Before going home they sang several songs, including God Save the King, and gave three cheers for Empire Day. On Coronation Day Mr and Mrs Harvey Smith gave the children of the district a Coronation treat. The children were invited to tea at 4 o'clock. The table looked lovely. It had a tall centre piece decorated with heath; and from it to each corner of the table were beautiful streamers of red, white, and blue ribbon. Pretty little fairy lamps were burning on the table, and in different parts of the room. Later in the evening, when it got dark, fire works were set off. They looked very pretty, especially some of the rockets. After this they went inside to a magic lantern and phonograph entertainment. First of all the school children did the wand drill and flag drill; also some marching, and one little girl did some fancy dancing, and gave a recitation. In the evening the parents of the children, and a good few young people, came, and before they went home they had a few dances to finish off the evening. They then gave three cheers for the King and Queen, and three cheers for the host and hostess. It was the best children's entertainment ever held in Upper Beaconsfield. On the following Saturday evening the Beaconsfield Upper Tennis Club held the quarterly social. It was a miserable night, but, for all that, a good few attended. We all went, and enjoyed ourselves very much. It was my first dance, but I got on all right, and had a good few dances.24
  • 23 Dec 1911, OUR LETTER BOX. THE MORNINGTON SHOW. Lottie G. Petersen, who lives at "Leintwardine," Beaconsfield Upper, writes:— Dear Aunt Connie, — I am taking for my subject the Mornington Farmers' Association's Annual Show, which was held at Berwick on November 8. It was a lovely day, and we started from home about 10 o'clock. After a lovely drive we arrived at the show grounds between 11 and 12 o'clock. We left our buggy and horse on the road, and after giving the horse his feed, we had lunch. The shed was not yet opened when we went into the show, so we had a look at the poultry and animals first. The poor sheep that were not shorn looked hot with their wool on them, and the sun beating right down on them. There was an enormous white pig there. It was as big as a little fat pony. After going all round the animals we went to the centre of the ground, where the riding hacks were being judged. Next we had a look at the delivery horses, and then went to see the little ponies, and the jinker ponies getting judged. By this time the shed had been opened. We went to admire the fancy work, fruit, vegetables, flowers, cookery, and dairy produce exhibits. The fancy work, which took up the whole of one side of the shed, was just lovely; especially the first prize collection of fancy work, in which there was some beautiful work. The flowers and vegetables were also very good. Later on in the day we watched the Red Cross race and the high jumping. The Red Cross race was for the soldiers. They carried dummies to represent wounded men. One of the horses got out of control and gal-loped into a cart, throwing its rider. Fortu-nately, he could not have been hurt, for he got up and went after his horse. There was an alarm race later on ; but we did not wait to see it. We left the grounds about five o'clock, after having spent a very pleasant day. On the following Friday the annual State school picnic was held. Mother and I went over in the afternoon, and had a look at some of the races. I went in for the ladies' nail-driving competition; but did not get any thing. We then waited to see the prizes given out. They had lovely prizes this year. I think they are the best they have ever had. The Beaconsfield Upper Tennis Club celebrated "Cup Day" by holding an American tournament. I was there most of the day looking on. I did not play, as I had a cold, and was afraid of making it worse, and I wanted to go to the other amusements during the week. Cherry picking up here will soon be finished. The crops around here will soon be all cut. We are beginning to stack already.25
  • 21 Feb 1918, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. On Saturday evening a social meeting assembled in the hall, the object of which was to bid farewell to Mr James Hopkin and family, who have for the past few years conducted the post office here. Owing to family considerations Mr Hopkins is going back to town during this week. Miss Hopkins, who has been post-mistress during these years, has from her obliging disposition become a great favorite. The Rev. James Wilson presided, and after a few very pointed references to the lively interests Mr Hopkins has taken in all matters pertaining to the affairs of the district expressed the general regret of the residents. He then presented Miss Hopkins with an elegant gold wristlet watch as a token of esteem, expressing regret at her departure. Miss Hopkins, in a few very well appointed remarks, returned thanks. Mr Hopkins was then presented with a case of pipes and pouch. In returning thanks for such an unlooked for testimony of esteem, he through family reasons had decided on the change, but his mind would often revert to the pleasant associations of Upper Beaconsfield. Song, sentiment, and a social cup of tea brought the evening to a close. Mr Peterson, a former resident here but lately of Dandenong has bought Mr Hopkin's property, and Miss Peterson, a young lady of attractive bearing and manners, will act as post-mistress.26
  • 19 Dec 1918, Berwick Shire Council. Correspondence. From Postmaster-General's department, in regard to request received from postmistress at Upper Beaconsfield, asking that the local post office be closed for the weekly half-holiday at 1 p.m. on Saturday, in lieu of Wednesday, as at present. Enquiring whether the council had any objection to the proposal. On motion of Crs Anderson and Martin, to be informed that, at a public meeting held, the proposol was defeated on a vote being taken of the ratepayers.27
  • 17 Dec 1926, A farewell social and dance was given to Mr Mrs, and Miss Petersen.28
  • 27 Jun 1932, Regret is felt by her many friends at the death of Mrs. Harvey Marshall, which occurred at West Wyalong. Mrs. Marshall before her marriage was postmistress at the local post-office for many years. Her mother, Mrs. Petersen, was an old resident of the district.29
  • 20 Jun 1934, MARSHALL (nee Petersen) - In loving memory of our darling daughter Lottie G Marshall who passed away at West Wyalong (NSW) June 20 1932.
    As we loved you, so we miss you
    In our hearts you are ever there;
    Loved remembered longed for always
    As it dawns our sad second year
    - (Always remembered by her loving parents C and E Petersen.)30

  • 27 Dec 1921, BEACONSFIELD UPPER.-A machine-gun, captured by the 46th Batt, A.I.F., and presented to the district by the War Museum Committee, was unveiled by Captain A'Beckett. Three of the returned men present:-Messrs. W. O. Gibb, C. Harris and U. A'Beckett, who were appointed custodians of the gun, requested the Assembly Hall trustees to place it in the hall for the people of the district. This was promised by Mr. Harvey Smith, chairman.38
  • 5 Mar 1934, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. -Owing to the death of Mr W J Harvey-Smith and the resignations of Mr Francis and Mr Glismann three vacancies occurred on the trusteeship of the public hall and children's playground. At a public meeting Brigadier-General Foott and Messrs Knapton and C A Harris were appointed to fill the vacancies.39
  • 27 Mar 1935, STATIONS MAY BE CLOSED. RAILWAYS AND MOTORS GIPPSLAND LICENCES DEFEREED
    Transport Board's Inquiries
    Appearing for the Railways Department to oppose applications for licences for motor goods vehicles operating from Beaconsfield Upper, Bunyip, and Cora Lynn, in Gippsland, Mr. Burt Kelly intimated to the Transport Regulation Board yesterday that in view of competition by motor transport the department might be forced to close many stations. The chairman of the board (Mr. P. D. Phillips), who, with Mr. W. H. Kendall and Mr. J. Jeffrey, heard the cases, said that before giving its decisions the board might visit the districts in question.
    Mr. Hector Pringle, of Beaconsfield Upper, applied for a licence for one vehicle for the carriage of orchard materials and other goods from Beaconsfield Upper to Melbourne and from Melbourne to Beaconsfield Upper and district. He said that he carried to Melbourne once a week. His rate was £1 a ton. Last year he carried 15,000 cases of fruit to cool stores and to the railhead.
    To Mr. Kelly.-The primary producer wants us to run to Melbourne.
    Mr. Kelly.-You carry more fruit to the station than to Melbourne?
    Witness.-Yes.

    Talk of Pilfering
    Mr. John Nathan, storekeeper, of Beaconsfield Upper, supporting Mr. Pringle's application, said that by motor transport the goods could be brought in one handling from warehouse to store. Railway transport involved four handlings.

    To Mr. Kelly.-We got our groceries in cardboard containers.
    The Chairman.-Why could they not come in cardboard containers by the railway?
    Mr. Nathan.-I could not say without hurting Mr. Kelly's feelings; but they might be pilfered.
    When they came by rail was there any pilfering?-Very little; they were cased up.
    Mr. Kelly quoted figures to show that the railway rates were substantially lower than those of the road operator. He suggested that the district could be served by the railways in conjunction with local carriers.

    Economics of Short Hauls
    The Chairman.-With regard to these close-in goods hauls, there might be something said for leaving them for a while and accumulating more evidence. It is a question whether the radius fixed by the Legislature (25 miles) should be an unvarying one, or might be extended to 35 miles. There might be something said for leaving these temporary licences for a time until we know more about the economics of short hauls.
    Mr. Claude Alfred Harris, of Upper Beaconsfield, applied for a licence to operate from Beaconsfield Upper to the city and return, He said that he operated four days a week, and sometimes five, from Upper Beaconsfield, and sometimes he served Berwick en route. He took primary produce to Melbourne, and he carried back "every conceivable thing that was made." He carried liquor to three hotels.

    ...
    Decisions in all the other cases were deferred, the chairman saying that the board might travel over the country inquestion. Mr. H. Witty appeared for all the applicants.40
  • 13 Sep 1944, BEACONSFIELD RIDING EXTRAORDINARY VACANCY TO the Ratepayers— Ladies and Gentlemen, At the request of a number of rate payers, I have decided to offer myself as a candidate for the vacancy in the coun cil created by the lamented death of the late Cr. D. N. McBride. I have lived in the shire for many years now and know the riding and its requirements thoroughly. Should you do me the honor of electing me to represent you on polling day, Saturday, September 16th., I can assure you that I will use my best endeavours to advance the interests of the shire, and in particular those of the Bea consfield Riding. . Yours faithfully, CLAUDE E. HARRIS, Upper Beaconsfield.41
  • 20 Sep 1944, Good Hearing For Beaconsfield Reserve. Mr. John Richardson New Beaconsfield Riding Councillor
    ALTHOUGH Mr. A. E. C. Russell, of Gembrook, established a big lead on the first count, polling a particularly good vote in his own district, the distribution of Mr. Claud Harris’s second preferences gave Mr. John Richardson, of Upper Beaconsfield, a majority of 38 in the extraordinary election for the Beaconsfield Riding of the Berwick Council last Saturday.
    THE NEW COUNCILLOR, who is a son of the late Judge Richardson, and a noted breeder of Red Poll s at his “Faldinghurst” Stud, Upper Beaconsfield, will have youth on-his side and when he takes his seat next month, will be the youngest member of the council.
    THE KEEN interest taken in the election is shown by the fact that close on 800 votes were cast. There was little between the two Upper Beaconsfield rivals, the successful candidate having only 21 votes more than Mr. Claud Harris, who was the first to drop out.

    ON SUNDAY afternoon a working bee was held on the branch block at Upper Beaconsfield. The young pines planted earlier in the year were fenced in, and a notice board erected, having on it the name of the Berwick Sub-branch R.S.L. as owners, and the President, Mr. C. Harris, as the donor. A fair muster attended.43
  • 13 Jul 1949, To The Editor... Beaconsfield Council Candidates Older Resident Supported.
    SIR, —With reference to yours concerning the desirability of Mr. Sutherland, as councillor for the Beaconsfield ward in the next election of this ward of the Berwick Shire, certain statements are made.
    May I submit that the people of this country do congratulate themselves that our constitution is different from other places, and even if someone has had experience of civic matters in Kent, or even New York, or Paris, or Moscow, that does not necessarily make him an able administrator under our laws.
    Further, that according to the report concerning the professional status of Mr. Sutherland, one would not expect a Professor of History to be a good Architect.
    And most definitely, I submit that 18 months is insufficient time for any one to understand our ways of life, so in conclusion—This time we should seek a local resident of sufficient civic pride to undertake these duties.
    —Respectfully Yours; H. PRENTICE,
    (Upper Beaconsfield).44
  • 13 Jul 1949, Two Candidates For Beaconsfield Election.
    TWO candidates have been nominated for the Beaconsfield By-Election—Mr. Claud Harris, and Mr. Donald J. Sutherland.

  • 27 Jul 1949, MR CLAUD HARRIS NEW BEACONSFIELD RIDING COUNCILLOR
    In a record poll last Saturday, Mr. Claud Harris, well-known Upper Beaconsfield resident, and long term president of the Berwick R.S.L., was elected to fill the extraordinary vacancy in the Berwick Council, caused by the resignation of Cr. John Richardson.
    Keen interest was taken in the poll, which was one of the largest for many days, nearly 1000 votes being cast. Mr. Harris, who had previously contested the seat without success, this time finished with a majority of 106 over Mr D. J. Sutherland who, never theless, polled solidly for a comparative newcomer to the district.
    Mr. Harris, previously a contractor in the riding in the early days, has an intimate knowledge of the roads and district, which should stand him in good stead at the Council table.
    How the votes were cast:

Village BellApr 1991The article reads: Citizens of the Year Committee Resignation
It was with regret that the Council received the resignation of Mr. Roy Harris from the position of Chairman of the Committee due to ill health. Roy has been a member of the Citizens of the Year Committee since September 1978 and took over the Chairmanship in January 1982. He has headed the Committee ever since.12 
Death*23 Apr 1991 VIC, Australia. 
Village Bell*Jun 1991The article reads: Tribute to Roy Harris. On Monday 29th April a very large number of people attended the funeral service of Roy Harris at St. John’s Upper Beaconsfield. Everyone who knew Roy or had been involved in community matters for a very long time. He lived all his life in Salisbury Road.
Roy came from the family of the Glismanns, who, over one hundred years ago walked across country from Clayton. They selected land near where Foott Road is at present and set up permanent residence. Glismann names appear on the first rolls of the first primary school which was built near the Beaconshills Golf Club main entrance. Roy’s grandmother was the first resident school teacher at Upper Beac. Earlier, the teacher rode in from Berwick on horseback. Residents of Upper Beac. in 1984 will remember the Centenary of Education, the original school and public hall being 100 years old. Roy was president of the committee which organized that celebration.
Two of the tradesmen employed on the original church building of St John’s in 1923 were Roy’s grandfather and his uncle. Roy always had a great love of the church, and looked after it in various ways. Many residents would have seen Roy on the site with his tractor. Roy was a Vestry member for many years, and served as a Warden and as a Treasurer. Roy and other family members operated a transport business in Upper Beac. for many years (remember the sheds for twenty trucks near the corner of Emerald and Stoney Creek Road about twenty years ago?)
The Harris family threw themselves into community work after the 1983 fires. Roy played an active part in the rebuilding of St. John’s and driving the community bus. At various times Roy served on the Primary School committee, the Pakenham High School Advisory Council, Pakenham Citizen of the Year Committee. He supported the Upper Beaconsfield Association when it was young and turned out with the Fire Brigade. I have probably missed quite a few activities. Roy was recently a recipient of the Shire of Pakenham Citizen of the Year Award. The strength of Upper Beaconsfield is due in no small measure to the number of community minded people who give of their time and expertise. Roy was one of these.
Joan and family extend their grateful thanks to all who have offered support and love through the last months and in particular, those who have given practical support since Roy’s death.
ED NOTE (Jeanette Ballinger): Many of us who wrote articles on the history of Upper Beac. enjoyed contacting John Glismann, who lived in Castlemaine but visited his nephew Roy quite frequently. Mr Glismann was happy to talk about the early days and would straighten out a difficult question with great humour. He died a few days after Roy at age 90.13 
Land-Note*29 Jul 1992 Frances Roy Harris died on 23/4/91. Probate of his will has been granted to Joan Ella Harris.14

To the Secretary of Lands
Dear Sir I take the liberty of writing to you with reference to a Block of Land of J Harris in too parts north of Ellenworths on the Narrie Warren Road about 16 Acres it has been selected over (3) years and no improvements of any kind what ever put upon it. it is likely to be Fortifed.
also with referance to a Block of 20 Acres Selected by Dale over 3 years north of Gissings. Sugar Laaff has no improvements of any kind what ever is it likely to be forfitited?
or could you give me any information of Land forfitited or given for selection in or near Beaconsfield or what can be taken to obtain a block.
I remain yours respectfully Caleb Wheeler.5 
(Witness) Education1892Caleb Wheeler witnessed the education of Harold Dangerfield in 1892; attended State School 2560 Upper Beaconsfield - admitted age 10y 11m.6 
Occupation2 May 1892 Caleb Wheeler worked at Inebriate Asylum, Beaconsfield, as a temporary attendant, earning £90 per year. Relieved 22 May 1892. Re-engaged 1 Jun 1892, relieved 14 Jun 1892.7 
Note*30 Apr 1896 Caleb Wheeler, sworn and examined.
390. To the Chairman.—I am a fruit-grower, residing about a mile from here. I have been here
about ten years, and have 5 acres. I have been residing on my own place only about six years. It is freehold, bought from the Crown. I have about 4 acres under fruit, nearly all apples ; the trees are from three to seven-years old ; they are bearing well. I have averaged about a case to the tree this year. I sent some of my fruit to Melbourne for the first time this year. I disposed of it before in Dandenong, and locally, but the prices were so low, it paid me better to give them to the pigs until this year; the price is more satisfactory now. I could send 200 cases a year at present prices. The railway charge is 1s. for eight cases. I do not care whether there is a railway or not; if it came through it would bring me within a couple of miles of the railway station, but it would benefit the people further back.
391. To the Hon. D. Melville.—I make a living on 5 acres by fruit-growing. I do nothing else. I have no family to keep. I was brought up as a gardener. I was brought up to hard work. My father was a labourer, and without any previous training I picked up the apple-growing. I think there is a good prospect before me at my business. [The witness exhibited samples of apples.] I think this district is the best in the colony for growing that class of apples. Those apples would fetch 6s. in Melbourne ; the lowest I have heard of them bringing is 3s. a case ; plums and cherries do equally well here, and strawberries do well, but it is not suitable for currants. The land of the people away at the back is equally good. I could buy unimproved blocks adjoining mine at £5 an acre. There is room for another thousand families here without crowding us, as long as they are not Chinamen. I think a narrow-gauge railway would pay. This place is also a health resort.
392. To Mr. J. S. White.—I am married but have no children. I do not owe any one anything at present, thank God. I have grown pigs also, and I keep a cow or two running outside.
The witness withdrew.

  • 18 Aug 1900, AMUSING ASSAULT CASE FOUR NATIONALITIES REPRESENTED. A CHINESE COMPLICATION.
    Johannes Cornelius De Goey, barbed wire merchant, of Market-street, Melbourne, whose name will be remembered by many in connection with an extraordinary divorce case eight years ago, on Friday sued, before Judge Hamilton and a jury of four in the County Court, to recover £249 damages for assault from Caleb Wheeler, of Upper Beaconsfield, farmer. He alleged that the defendant violently assaulted him on July 7 at Upper Beaconsfield, and caused him to suffer "grievous pain and injury."
    Wheeler (states the "Argus") counter-claimed £99 damages from De Goey for assaulting him or causing him to be assaulted by his servant-a Chinese-at the same place on the same day. He paid £1 4s 3d into court in full satisfaction of De Goey's claim, and costs.
    Mr Eagleson (instructed by Mr H. S. Pyman) was for De Goey.
    Dr M'Inerney represented Wheeler.
    For the plaintiff it was alleged that he understood he had an interest in property at Upper Beaconsfield, and had sent a Chinese there to dig round the fruit trees and attend to the place generally. He himself went up later, and on his arriving at the house late in the evening of July 7 Wheeler rushed out, and, getting his head in chancery with one arm, punched it violently with the other hand. The faithful Chinese, fearing his master would be murdered, struck Wheeler on the head with a bamboo. As Wheeler drew off he struck De Goey again with his fist on the mouth, knocking several teeth out. As De Goey was in the act of escaping through the fence Wheeler kicked him cruelly in such a way as to cause him subsequent weeks of suffering. Defendant denied the assault. If there was assault it was in self-defence.
    Plaintiff was a trespasser, and defendant was engaged by the owners of the property, a Mr and Mrs Trinkaus, to eject him. In doing so he used no more violence than was necessary. According to the statement of defendant's case, a Mrs Trinkaus was at the bottom of the whole case. Plaintiff, it was asserted, had induced Mrs Trinkaus to sign a transfer to him of property at Beaconsfield, which had been put into her name by her husband. In return plaintiff gave her an IOU for £400. Subsequently Trinkaus and his wife went to live on the property, and De Goey came to claim it, sending a Chinese before him. The Trinkauses sought the help of Wheeler to turn the Chinese off, and afterwards De Goey forced an entrance. Wheeler, with Trinkaus, turned him out, and Wheeler kicked him as he disappeared. De Goey then gave the word to "charge" to the Chinese, who charged with a bamboo held like a bayonet. With that he struck Wheeler on the head. Wheeler had had a sore head ever since.
    Charles Bage, M.B., testified to the plaintiff's injuries. Cross-examined, he said he had noticed during years of attendance De Goey's nervous excitability and "rapidity of thought."
    Dr M'Inerney-"Rapidity of thought" is excellent. Did you observe any variability of imagination?
    Witness (turning to the judge)-I came here to give evidence, and hardly to write an essay on a man's character.
    Judge Hamilton (testily)-Well, you needn't write it. Nobody wants you to. Don't do it. (Laughter.)
    Witness (smiling)-Thank you. (Turning)-May I go? (Laughter.)
    Dr M'Inerney-Oh, dear, no. (Laughter.)
    A man with a nervous temperament would make more of an injury than another man?
    Witness-A man not of a nervous temperament would walk about with an injury, and only feel it when he thought of it, whereas a more nervous man would--
    Dr M'Inerney-Magnify it.
    Witness (smiling)-No, appreciate it more fully. (Laughter.)
    Plaintiff was cross-examined by Dr M'Inerney. This transfer of land is signed by Mrs Trinkaus, and you were to pay her £400? How did you pay her?-I paid her £50. I found there was a mortgage of £100 on the property.
    Was Mrs Trinkaus lodging or staying at your house?-(Vehemently)-No, sir; no, sir; no, sir.
    Did your Chinese advise you of what was happening at Beaconsfield?-Yes, he telegraphed to me, "Wheeler will throw me over the fence. What will I do?" (Loud laughter.)
    Dr M'Inerney sought to go into matters connected with certain divorce proceedings in 1892 and City Court proceedings in connection with Mr and Mrs Trinkaus some months ago, but Judge Hamilton ruled the questions inadmissable.
    Dr M'Inerney-If your Honor rules that I'm done. (Laughter.)
    Ah Gee gave evidence as to the assault. He was at a loss what to do when he saw two men holding and hitting De Goey "like a cat playing with a mouse"-(laughter)-so he decided to tap one of them on the head with a bamboo. (Laughter.)
    Mrs Trinkaus said De Goey worried her into signing the transfer. He gave her an IOU for £450, which she handed back into his keeping.
    Friedrich Theodore Trinkaus drew a startling picture of De Goey calling on his Chinese army of one to "charge," and of the Chinese "charging" with his bamboo at the "ready" like a bayonet.
    He continued:-"He is a big Chinese; I'm only a little fellow, but I'll manage him. (Laughter.) He say to me, 'No more fightee' - (laughter) - but every time I let him go he lifted his stick again. He was a strong fellow, but he lost his waistcoat and his hat, and said, 'Me go, me go.' (Laughter.) I said 'I'm glad of it. Good-bye.' (Laughter.) Wheeler was glad too." (Laughter.)
    To Dr M'Inerney.-Wheeler was too much of a Britisher to kick De Goey as he went through the fence. (Laughter.) I didn't do so either. I am a Saxon. We act like men. (Laughter.)
    De Goey cleared the fence in a bound like a young deer - (laughter) - and landed in some flax bushes - (laughter) - but "John" was not so clever, and hung half-way over. (Laughter.)
    To Mr Eagleson.-I am a Britisher now. (Laughter.)
    My three brothers have proved themselves brave men in the German army. (Laughter.)
    The case stands adjourned until half past 10 on Monday morning.39,40
  • 21 Aug 1900, THE DE GOEY CASE. "CONTEMPTUOUS DAMAGES."
    What are known as "contemptuous damages" were awarded by a jury of four in the County Court yesterday in the case in which Johannes Cornelius De Goey claims £249 damages for assault at Upper Beaconsfield on July 7 from a farmer named Caleb Wheeler, and in which Wheeler counter-claimed £99 damages from De Goey for an assault on him by De Goey's Chinese servant, Ah Gee.
    Judge Hamilton, in summing up, said he could find no excuse for the attempts that had been made to bring in much most objectionable and detestable and unnecessary matter. Time after time he had been persecuted and the Court almost defied by the persistence of the defendant's party in attempting to bring those matters in. They returned to the things again and again, like the proverbial hogs wallowing in the mire. There seemed to be no more sense of shame than ordinary dogs or tom cats. The jury awarded plaintiff one farthing damages on the claim, and the defendant one farthing damages on the counter-claim.
    Judge Hamilton was about to enter up judgement for one penny in each instance, when he suddenly remarked, "No, I won't; I shall grant no costs."
    Mr Eagleson (instructed by Mr Pyman) was for De Goey, and Dr M'Inerney was for Wheeler.41
  • 18 Sep 1913, From Caleb Wheler, "Hillside," Beaconsfield, asking for footbridge over waterway on road leading to Berwick over the Cardinia bridge close to the Beaconsfield Hotel, as the people had to wade up to their knees, to cross the stream-Cr Scott-Sharp said the work was necessary, as people had to climb along the fences. He moved that the clerk of works report.-Seconded by Cr Barr.-Cr Martin said the clerk of works was con versant with the spot, and the trouble was the water was dammed back by the property owners not clearing the creek. He thought the water should be diverted from the road altogether.-Cr a'Beckett said this was a matter he had referred to some three years ago, and the drain would need to be a deep one with a very great scour, and would be troublesome, therefore he did not persevere. We had a metalled crossing where previously it was a bog.-Cr Martin said the metal would be all washed away before next year. -The clerk of works said it would not be wise to cut a drain there as it was all made ground.-The motion was carried.42
  • 9 Apr 1914, A DRIVING ACCIDENT.
    BEACONSFIELD. Wednesday. Mr Wheeler, of Hillside, Beaconsfield, while driving back from the evening train, accompanied by his daughter, lost control of a young horse he was driving. The jinker was wrecked and the occupants thrown out. The daughter escaped with a severe shaking, but Mr Wheeler had his collar-
    bone dislocated.

Catherine Whight

F, #176, b. 1863, d. 17 Aug 1908
Birth*1863 Amherst, VIC, Australia, #B82 [par Dammant WHIGHT & Catherine CAVENER].1 
Death*17 Aug 1908 Upper Beaconsfield, VIC, Australia, #D8480 (Age 45) [par Richard WHIGHT & Cath CAVANAGH].2 
Illness*17 Aug 1908 Catherine Whight was staying at Kanoona under the care of Catherine MacCallum, and attended by an unknown person at the time of her suicide.3 
Inquest18 Aug 1908Inquest held 1908/894. Self inflicted injuries to throat.
Depositions: Report of Constable James Hehir 4169 relative to sudden death of Catherine Whight at Upper Beaconsfield on 17th August 1908.
I beg to report for Dr Cole's information that I was informed this morning that Catherine Whight a woman about 45 years of age that was an inmate of the convalescent nursing establishment carried on by Miss MacCallum at Upper Beaconsfield got away from her attendant (after a struggle) into the bush and when found was in a dying condition with her throat cut. I proceeded to the place and made inquiries. I found the woman had been sent to Miss MacCallums by Dr Beattie Smith from Melbourne a fortnight ago. She was melancholic and inclined to be suicidal. She appears to have been well looked after and was never left alone, but by some means she appears to have got hold of a table knife and kept it concealed. Yesterday afternoon when out walking with her attendant an assistant nurse named Olley she attempted to cut her own throat. The nurse struggled with her and tried to take the knife from her but was unable to do so and Whight got away in the scrub with the knife when found she had her throat badly cut and was in a dying condition. I carefully examined the place where the struggle took place and found some of deceased's clothing there I traced footsteps that of one woman down a soft track into a gully there I found deceased's handbag and waist belt with blood on them. There were indications as if some person had been sitting down and blood on the ground. I traced her from there down the gully through the scrub and found her false teeth from there. I traced the trail to where she was found it was about a quarter of a mile from where the struggle with the attendant took place. I was unable to find any knife but the place from where she got away to where she was found is covered on the side of the little tracks with ferns and undergrowth and deceased may have thrown the knife from her into the scrub. My inquiries and search bear out the facts as stated by Miss Olley deceased's attendant. I am of opinion that deceased intended to kill herself and had the knife concealed in her clothing when she left the house. Deceased's attendant appears to have done all in her power to prevent the woman cutting her throat but she was not strong enough to hold her. There appears to be no suspicious circumstances. I am of opinion that deceased's mind became unhinged and she committed suicide.

This deponent Catherine MacCallum trained nurse residing at Kanoona Upper Beaconsfield.
This house is entirely under my charge. It is not registered. It is a medical rest home. I received the deceased on the evening of 3rd August inst together with her sister. Her sister is not here now. When she arrived she seemed depressed but soon after brightened up and said she thought she would be allright. Her moods alternated between brightness and depression. She was always rational No outbursts. Nothing happened. She was until Friday in charge of myself and her sister. She was never alone. The sister slept with her. The sister left on Friday. Miss Olley came on Thursday evening. She took charge of deceased on the following morning at 9 o'clock. The sister remained all that day until the evening. After that Miss Olley had sole charge under my direction. I last saw deceased alive after she had injured herself. She left the house with Miss Olley for their usual walk. She was then in my opinion perfectly rational. At 5.45pm Mrs Larkin the laundress came into my kitchen and told me something. I followed her direction to the house of Mrs Adams 1/4 mile away. I hear men's voices in the gully. I heard my dog I followed and found deceased sitting far down in the gully beside a small waterhole. She was then alive but as I reached she pitched forward. Mrs Larkin helped me lift her and brought her here. She died on the way to the house. Her throat was cut. I have heard since that it was done with a knife. I do not know how she got the knife. Miss Olley was at Mrs Adams' house having been injured by deceased her knee injured her arm strained and other injuries due to a struggle with deceased. The deceased was never alone. She had meals with us. There were knives at the table. I couldn't say whether she injured herself with a table knife. The knife was never found near her body.

This deponent Muriel Olley. I am an attendant residing at Spring Street Melbourne.
I have had two years hospital training and in addition have had private house experiences. I have attended melancholic patients before under medical supervision. I took charge of deceased in consequence of an advertisement from Mrs Fisher's office. I was engaged by the sister of deceased. I took charge of her on Friday morning last. I took instructions from Miss MacCallum. I was constantly with her. In the afternoon of yesterday we went for our usual walk taking the path through the bush. Just on the rise of the hill near a gully I stopped to fasten my shoe. The patient threw down her muff and umbrella and ran down the hill. Cutting at her throat with a table knife a small dinner knife. I chased her caught her by the arm we had a struggle I got the knife several times. She forced me down the hill. She got it back again once I threw it away she got it again. We were then almost at the edge of the bracken. She got away from me I was too exhausted to chase her any further the struggle lasted 3/4 hours. I went for help to Mrs Adams' house who sent some men down. I did not see deceased again. I do not know how deceased got the knife. It had a short blade. It was not one of the ordinary dinner knives used here. I was attacked by deceased with a hat pin and ran it into my leg. She did so in order to get the knife which I had stuck in the ground and knell upon. She scratched my hand with her brooch in order to force me to let go the knife. All her efforts were for the knife. She tore at her throat with the hat pin.

This deponent James Whight, warehouse man residing at 9 Purves? Terrace St Kilda Road South Melbourne.
The deceased Catherine Whight was my sister. Her age was 45 years. She was out of business. She had had tea rooms in Flinders street for some years. She has been depressed for 7 or 8 weeks. She seemed to worry a good deal after she sold her business.4
