BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
BOWLING NOTES. NOTES BY "JACK HIGH." Some members of the local bowling club, despite the fact that half the season had passed without the sweets of victory being once tasted, resented the suggestion that they would he better placed in a lower sec tion, and whether as a result of the stirring eltects of adverse criticism, or because for tune for once was a bit kind to them, liter ally wiped the floor with Moonee Ponds last Saturday, The performance was a highly creditable one and the more of the sanme kind of repetitions that are forthcom ing the better will "lack Iligh" be pleased. To see both A. and B. team defeated week after week is depressing to one whose only desire is to see Footscray's sporting institu tions holding their own and players may rely upon it that it is far more pleasant and congenial to the writer to bestow praise than blame. Saturday's performance clearly indicates that the A. team is capable of doing good work if it only sets its mind to It and, pro viding play...

A SERVIAN FAIRY TALE. Once upon a time there was a handsome young Prince named Boris, and as he was out hunting one day he caught sight of a bird whose wings appeared to be of gol ien feathers. , He was so eager to catch this prize ihat he followed it up hill and down dale till at last all the courtiers who had accompanied him were left far behind. The Prince Boris noticed that he had come to a great temple full of sta tues in white marble, and he would have gone into the stately building had not 'a hermit stopped him. "Set not your foot on the thresh hold,'" he said to the Prince, "or you will be changed into a statue like these. There 'is a witch who .dwells on the hill behind the temple, and she .sends out the golden bird to tempt travellers here. Many, as you see, have been unable to resist the desire to enter, and they have fallen victims to the Witch's en chantment. But if you can find her and get near enough seize her hair before she sees you, she will be in your power." Now ...

This'is spread upon muslin to the thickness of a qgtarter of an inch, applied to the part, and over this a rubber roller bandage is placed just tiglitly enough to keep the dressing from shifting, and to retain. the moisture. Al. the expiration of twenty-four or thirty-six hours the dresbing must be renewed.

There were several breezy passages between councillors at the Brayhrook council Ineeting on Monday, and once the president (Cr McKay) warned Cr Opie, who would persist in interrupting of the powers that the chlirm,'nan pos sessed.

Crust for Pork Pies. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
Cruet for Paork Plea.

FOOTSCRAY DRILL HALL. To the Editor The Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
FOOTSCRAY DRILL HALL. To the Editor The Advertiser. Sir, We ask the same prominence to reply to the savage attack on the drill hall committee by an anonymous writer in your last issue. Whatever is intended the impression the average reader is most likely to draw from his remarkis is that the committee has not accounted for the moneys donated and other mon eys raised in connection with the move ment. We offer no explanation to an individual whom nobody knows, but would disabuse the minds of the public of the sinister impression he is out to convey by his anonymous contribution. Things with the committee are not so bad as lie paints them. If not deliber ately, then he is strangely, ignorant of matters of common knowledge which have already had publicity. The date of the drawing of the art union was notified in the papers. The drawing took place in thetown hall and was cer tilied to by public representatives, 'The results of the drawing were published in this paper, other local papers,...
