EDWARD' V OUR 2 20 TO ALL MARRIED 1 business may have REPUTATION without much WOMEN CHARACTER, or it may have character without still in force much reputation.

Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 23 May 1914

Bowling. By BOWLER. The Carlton rink tournament was contined on Saturday, bowlers being again fortunate in having excellent weather. M. Kemp had the hard luck to be beaten by his opponent (Munro) by one, the scoring being represented by 9 to 8. From a scoring point of view, Kemp's colleagues deserted him during the latter part of the game. Another team, that skipped by H. Rider, also went under, Skip. Wood, of Carlton, doing the squelching by 18 to 12. As to what club -is entitled to the "glory" of Rider's defeat I am not in a position to say.. Originally a Prahran team was "picked for this Carlton tournament, and I got into hot water for calling it a Praliran team. Dunning, of Praliran,- I picked it. Then there: is Ride, -whio is a member of the Prahran Club,; also a member of the St. Kilda Club.. The two other Players in the team were Goldsworthy, of Carlton; and Mathieson, of St. Kilda The chances are that, now the team has been defeated in the Carl ton tourney, no club will rush...
