No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 11 July 1914
The fact that about seventy residents many representing lodges, &c., attend ed the initial public meeting to discuss the question of securing a crecho for Footscray augurs well for the move ment and must have been encouraging to the mayor and mayoress (Cr and Mrs Drew), also the Footscray branch of the A.W.A., who, following up the sug gestion of the Advertiser, interested themselves in the project. That there is a need for such a splendid institution is undoubted, and as Mrs Alfred Deakin, who spoke with great depth of feeling, remarked, residents fortunately placed as regards this world's goods should generously subscribe to the funds that will be needed, not because it is a charity but as a duty. Responding to a vote of thanks Mrs Deakin, with tears in her eyes, remarked, "I know what splendid institutions these creches are ; I know the noble work they have done and are doing; I could tell you instances of the gratitude of bereaved mothers that would make your heart bleed...

GARDEN NOTES. TREE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 11 July 1914
(ARDEN NOTES. By Mli ii. CRI.Y. TREE PLANTING. planting of trees should lose no time in proceeding with the preparation of the ground, and the selection of the kinds to be planted. If the trees are intended for shelter purposes, it will be necessary to get those which grow quickly and stand exposure well. For a shelter tree, for high and dry situations, the Pinus Insig nis is one of the best. It is the fast est grower of any, and soon makes a dense shelter, while the timber has some commercial value when the trees are old enough. It is not ad visable to plant these trees unless they can have a good space for their roots to run in without interfering with cultivated ground or buildings. Do not plant trees of any kind close to the dwelling house, as they soon get to be an intolerable nuisance there, The leaves will block up the spoutings, or the roots will under mine the founidations, or they may keep the house damp in winter. Be fore planting consideration should always he given to t...
