10925 The article may be referring to this Gilbert Gaudie or perhaps a Shetland Gilbert Gaudie. more research needed.
Albury Banner and Wodonga Express Friday 8 August 1913; A 1000-year-old bracelet, made of gold was found by a boy on the island of Oxna,
Shetland, recently. Mr. Gilbert Goudie, at the monthly meeting of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, held in the Museum, Edinburgh, told the interesting story of the bracelet which has been acquired by the museum. Mr. Goudie related how the bracelet had come to light on a bare spot which had been scalped over and over again to provide extra soil for adjacent arable land worn out by prolonged cultivation, and by its glitter in the sunlight had attracted the attention of the boy playing near. It is of solid gold, 2 and a half inches in width in interior diameter at its greatest width, and it weighs 964 grains troy. It is formed of four strands of metal finely polished, and interplaited in a continuous circular chain. In workmanship it compares with certain armlets and necklets of silver, part of a hoard of objects found in1858 at Skaill, in Orkney, but otherwise it
is unique as being the only object of gold of this intertwisted pattern that is so far known to have been found in the country, though a very limited number are preserved in the archaeological collections of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. As a product of the late iron age of the Viking times, the date of its manufacture may be between 700 and 1000 A.D.

10926 The Auld Kirk
I sometimes think of the friends I knew, Of my corner seat in the family pew,
And, I must confess, shed a tear or two
For my dear auld kirk.
I used to go there in sun and rain, The sweetest of memories still remain;
I wonder if e'er I'll see it again
Oh, my dear auld kirk!
It seemed like a bit of heaven to me, To forget life's worries awhile, and be
Refreshed and strengthened anew by Thee.
In my dear auld kirk.

While attending the Church of England service at Swift’s Creek, Mr John Hollands nearly lost his new motor-car by fire. Before entering the hall
where the service was being held, Mr Douglas Gibson, of Benambra, who was accompanying Mr Holland, threw his motor coat (in the pocket of which was a pipe which he had been smoking) over the back of the seat. Shortly afterwards Mr Flynn, who was passing by, noticed smoke issuing from the car, and rushed into the hall to acquaint the owner of the fact. It was discovered that the ashes from the pipe had ignited the coat. The upholstery of the seat of the car was burned. The timely action of Mr Flynn in giving the alarm saved not only Mr Holland’s car, but probably that of Mr D. Johnston also, as the two cars were standing very close to each other.

Mr and Mrs Albert Drever, of this place, received the sad news from the Defence Department last Friday that their third son, Private James Drever, had been killed in action in France The late Pte. Drever, who was about 20 years of age at the time of his death, was a tall, well built specimen of Australian manhood. He enlisted over 12 months ago, and has been in the fighting line ever since his arrival in France. Much regret is expressed locally for the death of such a brave young soldier, and much sympathy is felt with the bereaved relatives, who are very numerous in this district, and are all well-known and highly respected The casualties among those who have enlisted from Napoleons are exceedingly high relatively speaking. Up to the present time the majority of the Napoleon boys who have enlisted have been killed.

10945 The Ballarat Star Vic. Saturday 20th Dec. 1919; NAPOLEONS. OBITUARY.
The late Mrs Ellen Drever, of Napoleons, whose death was reported lately, and who, had she lived until Christmas, would have completed her 99th year, had probably a unique record for longevity in Victoria. The deceased lady arrived in Melbourne with her two brothers-Roycroft by name in the ship Frankemore ? in the year 1841 many years before the discovery of gold or before gold was even thought of being found in Australia. Miss Roycroft, as she was then, was 21 years of age at the time of her landing in this country, consequently, including her married years,
(she married two years after her arrival) the old lady had been altogether 78 years resident in Australia. Her husband (Mr Robert Drever ) died 52 years ago. She and her two brothers sailed from Cork to this country. She was born in Ireland and her husband, was a native of the Orkney lslands. Home papers please copy.
