The match was fired on Saturday, 18th inst., on the Port Melbourne range, the conditions being seven shots at 200 and 300 yds., 12 men aside, best nine scores to count. The St. Kilda team com prised practically the same men as visited Moe on Easter Monday last At the sfart of the match, the weather was all that could be de sired, and some good scores were looked for. At the shortest range, F. Fechner (of Moe) and J. Vivian (of St. Kilda) secured 34 each. Later in the day, the wind increased, and smoke blowing across the range made shooting more difficult. At 300 yds., Hunter (who failed badly at 200 yds.) and Bohnholtzer, with 31 each, did best for Moe, while Vivian and Christopher shot well for the home team, scoring 33 each. On making up the totals, it was "found that the St. Kilda team won by 24 poi...

CHINESE MAXIMS. The Chinese have some excellent oroverbs:— "A collection of good sentences re sembles a string of pearls" is one of he most poetical. Another wise dictate runs: "Do not mxiously expect what is not yet come; :lo not vainly regret what is already past." "Honors come by dilige/.c^; riches spring from economy," w/ote a wise man. There is a :ouch of sublime truth in the favorite proverb: "Doubt and diS' traction are on earth, the brightness of truth is in heaven." The following adage might hav« been borrowed from King Solomon himself, as it runs so on the lines ot "Spare the rod and spoil the child": "If you love your son be liberal it punishment: if you hate your son ac* Ktistom him to dainties."

AFTER MANY YEARS. MONEY IN A BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 July 1914

, afteb many ybabs. MONEY IN A BANK. ' The mistake of Mr. A. S. Whitehall* of Union Bridge, Maryland (U.SA.J, in going to the wrong bank, has re vealed that he is the possessor of a deposit of £200, and interest, amount ing to nearly £300. The money has long awaited a claimant. Seventeen years ago Mrs. Sarah White hall deposited £200 in a bank,. and three years later she died. The bank officials made inquiries, but could never, find the next of kin. A day or two ago Mr. Whitehall had" business at the Farmer' and Mechau- ' ics' Bank, but went instead to the Frederick County Bank, where it was found that the money was his. T. Kashiarn, .who was formerly a star aviator in the Japanese army, and who recently lived at Millfire, Los Angeles, has adopted a new way of evading justice. When a constable called this week to attach his biplane for a debt of £25 the machine was gone, and all the constable could see, with the, aid of glasses, was a far-away speck in the sky.

SUBMARINE PARIS. LANDMARKS" UNDER WATER. DANGER ON THE "JOIE DE YIVRE." The deluge has been a trifle late, but it has come after Louis all the same. It has blotted out the Place de la Concorde, wherein several of the aforesaid Louis's illustrious relatives lost heir heads; it has threatened to swamp the tomb of Napoleon at the Invalides and the Venus of Milo on the ground floor of the Louvre; it has imparted a Venetian aspect to Notre Dame, the Morgue, and other build ings that the world knows less about on the He de Cite and the lie St. Louis. Paris is a flat City; the shelv ing from the river is so gradual as to oe imperceptible for the first mile or two. And it is around the river on both sides that the important Paris has growii._ History tells that the two islands constituted the camp of the ancient Gauls, and thence civi lisation spread until to-day M'Martre itself presents a condition which pass es for civilisation, until the apaches break loose and smash things every now and...

SOME FAMOUS PROPOSALS. "Anne Boleyn, I wish to add your head to my collection."—Henry VIII. "Won't you be number 998?"—The Sultan of Sulu. "Proserpina, go to hades with me" —Pluto. "Eve, I want my rib back."—Adam. "This time I'm speaking for myself, Priscilla."—John Alden. "How much am I offered?" Count Olden-Nayme. Some awful puns are made by some magistrates who seek to be witty at times, and not only is it the honorary J.P. who holds himself up as a woe fully poor humorist. During the hear ing of the "hold-up" case in, Sydney the other day a witness described the game the gamblers were playing when the masked men entered. "We were playing faro," he said. "Un-faro," interrupted Judge Backhouse. There upon the "Sun" comments:— Gaiety on the bench is a rare and precious thing, which should be en couraged. Here are a few more splen did gags, to be learned by heart by judges, and worked off as opportunity offers. Witness: Deceased was lying on his side. His Honor: Sui-cide! (Laughter....

Most children have a pet of some description, and when a suburban hen some months back hatched out a duckling amongst her brood of chicks, the owner's two daughters immediate ly adopted the web-footed new arrival as a pet. Ducky, as he was named, grew up and waxed fat in the inter vening months, and, being the sole member of liis tribe in the fowlyard, was, well fed and became very tame to his adopted parents.
