THE OVAL MATCH. RAILWAYS SCORE WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
THE OVAL MATCH. RAILWAYS SCORE WELL. It seems that the Railways club has collected ro many players now that they don't know what to do with them all. This problem pre sented itself on Saturday, when Moore was again available, and a new man named Quinn was on hand, and it was solved by the ex clusion of Morton and Willet. Who the selectors care to choose is their own affair, but it seems rather strange that Morton, who plays in the inter-association matehes-(he made top score at Castlemaine) who virtually won the last match for Railways against Maryborough, and who is decidedly better than several others in the Railways team, should be left out. The reason offered on Saturday night was that Morton had " scabbed " by playing in the Castlemaine match with Davey when the others were "sym pathy-striking" with Keenan; and that the Railways players would not take the field with him against Havelock. This, however, seems a bit too strong to be correct. On a perfect wicket Railways went in t...
STOLEN PEARS. IMMIGRANT IN TROUBLE. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
STOLEN PEARS. IMIGRANT IN TROUBLE. MELBOURNE, S AT??EDAu . Some of the immigrants do well but others have unfortunate ex periences. Herbert Scammell, who has been out here only a month, i amongst the unfortunate. He is a young man and hails from Bristol. Yesterday when cases of pears were being .put on a steamer at the Aus tralian wharf, one of the boxes broke and the fruit was scattered. Scam mell, who was playing the part of a hungry spectator, pocketed half a dozen and departed. But his actions had been observed by a constable. who looks after the interests of the Harbour Trust. The constable was in plain clothes, and when he intercepted Scammell, the latter said, "' Iwas hungry, don't tell the police." "I am a constable" was the crushing rejoinder, and Seammell was taken to the watchhouse. To day he appeared before the city court. It was stated in evidence I that when food was placed before I Scammell at the watchhouse he ate it ravenously. It appears that he had worked in the M...

DISTRICT NEWS. BOWENVALE. IN MEMORIAM SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CEORRESPONDENTS.) BOWENVA LE. IN MEMORIAM SERVICE. An in memoriam service was con ducted yesterday in the Timor Methodist Church by Rev. A. P. Bladen, in connection with the death of Mr C. Penrose, who for many years was a class-leader and honored member of that communion. Feel ing reference was also made to the passing of Master Joseph Wenmouth, a particularly bright and promising lad, who died last week after a few days' illness. The church was ap propriately draped in white for the occasion. Mr Bladen preached from Proy. 10.: 7-" The memory of the just is blessed." He said that the dis tinctive note of Christ's teaching was that he brought life and immorta lity to light. He came to give the highest life, to make men good. Death is but the gate through which redeemed characters find their own place, everlasting life. There is another sense in which the dead live after they have passed away. They live in the memory of those who knew them. A memory is the on...

MOOLORT. GRASS FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
MOOLORT. GRASS FIRE. A grass fire broke out here on Friday last about 4 o'clock. It is said to have been caused by a goods' train from Castlemaine. About 100 men turned out with beaters, but despite all their efforts it was not stopped until about 400 acres of Mr B. M'Donald's grass, 60 acres of Mr Lock's, and 100 acres of Mr R. G. M'Lay's grass had been burnt. Ladies of the district were in atten dance with any amount of refresh ments, and their great forethought was highly appreciated. On Satur day another fire broke out through an old tree falling and the sparks blowing on to the grass. It burnt another 100 acres of grass belonging to Mr M'Lay. This should teach the farmers holding laud next the railway line to burn a good break in the future.

IT WOULD NOT DO. Miss Millicent Mills was exceedingly indignant with her mother. "I do wish," she said, "you would't talk about washing up when Jim's here, mother, it's so awfully common.' 'Awfully common eh " repeated her mother, a lady endowed with much common sense. "But we ha'-e to eat, don't we-? And Jim has to eat? And he eats off dishes, doesn't lie? And he knows dishes have to be-" "Oh I know-I know," interrupted her agitated daughter impaticently.

She: '"Don't. jump so, dear; that's only the cuckoo clock in the hall." He: "Oh, that's all? I thought" it was your father coming downstairs. You'll tell" me w?wn lie comes, won't you, dear?" "Oh, it will not beo necessary, love, to tell you; you'll know it when papa comes.3
AN INVOLUNTARY VOYAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
AN INVOLUNTARY VOYAGE. A Honolulu message of October i.'h in a San Franoisco paper, give.s the, following account, of a young woman u involuntary trip to Honolulu: With a smile in her pretty eye, t\h: oven her tear-stained cheek could not. suppress, handsome Miss Nettie Stono of Oakland arrived in Honolulu shortly after midnight last Thursday morning, having been brought on board the Can adian Australasian Royal Mail lhor, Marama. from Yictoria, when her in tention had been to sail from the Can adian port to San Francisco in the Umatilla. It was a dark night in Victoria vrhen the boat sailed," said Miss Stone, "and I had just finished a visit with some friends on a ranch near Viotoria. The friends took me to Victoria about an hour before the boat was due to sail, and I secured a ticket and boarded the vessel under the impression that it was the Umatilla and that I would soon be with my folks in Oakland, There were two steamers at the dock, [ thought I was taking the right one.

PRESENTATION. SPORTS SECRETARY HONORED [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
PRESENTATION. SPORTS SECRETARY HONORED The excellent Work done by Mr I. D. Daniel (secretary of the Mary borough District State School Teachers' Association) as secretary of the sports carnival has not es caped the notice of his colleagues. I Ley discussed the question at a recent meeting and decided to make Mr Daniel a presentation from the funds accruing from the sports. Mr Daniel, however, declined to accept this, and subsequently the teachers of the district subscribed, and pre vailed upon the secretary to accept a token of their appreciation. The presentation was made subsequent to the deciding of the championships on Saturday, the teachers mustering on the landing of the grandstand. In asking Mr Daniel to accept a handsome set (20 volumes) of Shakespeare, the president (Mr H. H. Twist) said they all recognised what fine work he had done, and every teacher had given most cheer fully to the testimonial. His work had evidently been a labor of love with Mr Daniel, and it was his e...

SCArUOOL SPO RTS. CHAMPIONSHIP GOES TO DUNOLLY. The sports meeting held under the auspices of the State schools of the Maryborough district in De cember last were a big success, but a slight hitch occurred in connection with the championship. The Teachers' Association discussed the matter in all its phases, and decided that the best thing to do would be to have another series of contests between the three claimants to the honor-K. Smith (Dunolly), A. Foster (Maryborough West), and A. Bucknall (Cotswold). Accordingly the three boys met in Prince's Park on Saturday in seven events. All were keenly contested, and ulti mately Smith won, with Foster zscond, and 3Bucknii? third. There was an interested attendance of spec tators, including school teachers from all parts of the district. The results were as follow : 100 yds.-Smith, 1 ; Foster, 2; Bucknall, 3.

TALBOT MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
TALBOT MATCH. Little need be said concerning this match. Maryborough's team was not the strongest, but it was too good for the weak Talbot representa tion. Batting first, the home team made only 21, of which Long con tributed 14. The best batsman, Eaves, made a " duck" and no less than five others kept him company. Davey came out with the fine average of 5 for 7, and Stevens took 4 for 14. The Maryborough response was 94, no batsman reaching 20. Deans took 7 for 51, and Eaves 2 for 30.

HELPING THE HOSPITAL. MARYBOROUGH CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
HELPING THE HOSPITAL. MARYBOROUGH CARNIVAL. On Wednesday next the annual Maryborough Carnival in aid of the district hospital is to be held. For some weeks past an energetic com mittee has been making arrange ments for the gathering, and on Fri day evening these were completed. From these it is hoped that ,n effort worthy of its noble cause will result in a good financial return accruing. In past years the carnival has been very popular, and there is no good reason why it should not continue to receive solid patronage. The claims of the hospital need no special pressing-they are known to everyone-but it should be pointed out that folk will not be doing their duty by the institution if they simply turn out to see the proces sion and return home. The usual fancy-dress procession will not be held this year ; a parade of cadets being arranged for instead, to start at 2 o'clock. The programme is one calculated to give an interesting afternoon's sport. The cycle races are bringing out all...
