The St. Kilda Council versus Prahran Council. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
The St. Kilda Council versus the Prahran Council. 4---- . There is an old trueism which says that oil and water won't mix. If that truism were modernised, it would not be out of place to word picture it something after this style -"The St. Kilda Council and the Prahran Counoll won't mix !" Both appear to revolve on an axis of some special manufacture. Each lives in a world of its own. It has even been stated that it is a comparatively easy task to distinguish a St. Kilda man from a Prahran 'man when either is away from his own district. The former (so it is contended) has a far away look in his eye as if scanning the waters of Hobson's Bay in anxious expectancy for the next fishing boat to take up its moorings. The Prahran man, on the other hand, is said to have a very near or close look in his eye, as if constantly on the look out in Chapel street to dodge electric trams, cable trams, and motor traffic galore. But enough of this supposition. Why the St. Kilda council and the Prahra...

AMERICAN WIT. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
AMERICAN WIT. An. American newspaper publishes ithe following -examples of American wit :- Disappointment comes .oftenest to the people who' depend entirely upon luck. :Many a fellow has made a man of himself even after -some girl-has made a fool of him. One way to acquire a reputation for wisdom is:. to. have sense enough. to keep your mouth .shut. It..takes a man with sharp wits to succeed, but even the dullard:may bore., his way through life. Even when they are all wrapped up in themselves the manners of some people are rather cold. Occasionally* a man is almost as proud of a clear conscience as a wo man is of a clear complexion. Many a fellow who boasts that he is as honest as the day -is long for gets that the days are not very long sometimes.

Cr Ginn's Dilemma. - ---- j Cr Ginn found himself in a dilemma at the last meeting of the Prahran Council. It was a position that Cr Ginn enjoyed in tensely, as it gave him quite an excellent opportunity of displaying his comprehensive powers and ability in an endeavor to extricate himself. Just as it has been tritely said that the stars shine with no more lustre than when they first sang together in the glory of their birth, so it might be accredited to Cr Ginn that on this special occasion he merely displayed that profound sense of observation and apt intelligence which has always been his since he first entered the municipal arena. The question at issue was without a doubt one of importance, and, minus of any unnecessary frill, it was this: Cr Ginn moved that a poll of the ratepayers be taken on the Town Hall site question. Discussion followed. Vote taken. Mayor says : "I declare the motion carried." Cr Ginn beams with delight. Division called for and taken. Mayor says: "I declar...
