PATRIOTIC MOVEMENT. OLD CALICO FOR WOUNDED REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914
PATRIOTIC MOVEMENT. OLD CALICO FOR WOUNDED REQUIRED. Numerous residents will be glad to hear that they can help supply one of the most pressing needs of the war hospitals. Old calico is badly wanted. Almost everybody can spare some useful clean parts of old sheets, pillow cases, table cloths, handkerchiefs, or table wear. It should be remembered that every thing at the hospitals is new, un washed material, hence the urgent need for soft, old cloths for the wounds. If parcels of- material suitable for this purpose are brought to the Port Melbourne town hall they will be sorted and packed by the patriotic committee, and we are sure that the comfort which their use will give the brave men fight ing our battle cn distant battle fields when wounded will be sufficient reward to the givers. The lady members of the Mayor's patriotic committee are also collect ing material for the same object.
FORESHORE PICNICKERS SCATTERED A SWIM AND RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914
FORESHORE PICNICKERS SCATTERED BY BOLTING HORSE. A SWIM AND RESCUE. Just before seven o'clock on Cup night whilst a large number of picnic ers, chiefly family parties frbm other suburbs, were seated about the fore shore, a fine upstanding chest~nut horse galloped at full speed into their midst, creating a panic. After pareering about it took to the water and swam out to sea. Passing the Ozone landing it commenced neigh ing, its whinnying sound causing a weird thrill to overcome the specta tors.on the foreshore and pier. It was evidently in great distress when Mr. T, Holland, who had gone to its rescue, turned its head with his motor boat, and eventually directed its course to shallow water in a completely exhausted condition. The horse, it is believed, bolted from Caulfield, and is said to be a valuable animal. - As the oirner could not be found it was placed in livery by Constable Brown.

To Messrs. McDonnell, Turner and Riach has been allotted the honor of preparing the playing grobund for to-day's engagement.
