PREHISTORIC RIVER NEAR SOLWAY FIRTH. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
PREHISTORIC RiVER NEAR SOL WAY FIRTH. Excavations for the sea wall con structed by the Cumbetland County, Council at Allonby, a - lttle.wat'r place on the Solwav- Firth, revealed the mouth of a long-lost river. It is believed to. have dried: up hundre:ds. and perhaps thousands of years ago. Prom-the depths of the strata, the character. of the banks now ufidcover ed, the tree trunks dug up, it is evi dent that the mouth of a deep river. with steep banks lined with trees. formerly existed there. An inland upheaval doubtless took place by which the -springs were- cut off and -found :other rivers-- to take .their waters; . so that the disused channel gradually filled up, and the encroaching tide covered up all traces of the .estuary.. - -

Tramway Passengers. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
Tramway Passengers. A correspondent of ours, who is a constant rider in the electric trams on the Malvern route, has drawn our attention to a matter which would be much appreciated by the travel ling public if it were attended to. It is pointed out that the cars, as they travel along the different lines of route, pick up a certain amount of dust, which deposits itself on the seats of the trams, and in due course is transferred to the dresses and coats of passengers. As a remedy, our correspondent suggests that each conductor should be provided wivth a duster to brush over the seats at the termination of each journey. This is a matter which would not be difficult to carry out, and would be one much appreciated.

A Demand to Pay Up. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
A Demand to Pay Up. The Prahran Council received a "surprise packet" on Monday even ing. It consisted of a request from the Treasury Department to pay up its quota ([102) towards the upkeep of the Heatherton Sanatorium, and until such amount was forthcoming the sum of £1778, due to the council as its share of licensing fees, would be withheld. Thus was the pistol held at the head of the Council, and the experience was not a very pleasant one. It made the Council feel dizzy. It appeared from some correspondence that was read that the Council had been to all intents and purposes promised direct repre sentation on the committee of management of the Sanatorium, and this privilege had not yet been granted; hence the withholding of the infinitesimal amount due by the Council, The position taken up by the Council is by no means an en. viable one. To emphasise this it need only be mentioned as a co. incidence that at the same meeting the demand was made upon the Council for its contribution...
From 8 p.m. Till After Midnight. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 9 May 1914
From 8 p.m. Till After Midnight. PRAHRAN Council on Monday, with a full attendance of twelve members, sat from 8 p.m. till after midnight. In the "strangers' gallery" were seated Mr James Doeg, Mr R. C. M. Strachan, Mr McDonald (a well known magnate of the Labor Party). and a few others; but, like the Arabs, they folded up their tents, and stole silently away. At all events, they were nowhere to be seen-at mid night. Cr G. N. Heyward made his maiden speeches in the council, and proved himself an apt speaker. He possesses a olear-sounding voice, good enunciation, and there is no indefiniteness about his views. The reader might well ask how it is that the Prahran councillors cannot get through their business under four hours instead of waiting the arrival of the cold, chilly air in the early mornings. Councillors themselves don't know. Cr Ginn doesn't know, Not even after he had asserted that he would remain all night if there was any organised attempt to burk free speech-from him ! O...

PICTURES OF 200 B.C. WILL BE PRESERVED. Steps are being taken to send an archaeological expedition to the Jeg marl Cave in the Ramdayal Hills,. Orissa, to secure as complete a set as possible of the extraordinary series of. paintings which have been found there. These paintings are supposed to date from the second century before Chirist, and in any case cannot be. later than the first century B.C. They are of great interest, but lie' in remote jungles, difficult of access. It is considered of the highest im-, portance that a series should he se cured before time or vandalism has obliterated the best of them:
