"THE PITFALL." Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Melb. & Lon. CHAPTER XXIII. (Continued) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914
"THE PITFALL." B-y SIR WILLIAM MACNAY, Bart., Author of "The Master Spirit," "The Red Chancellor," "A Prince of Lovers," etc Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Melb. & Lon, CHAPTER XXIII. (Continued ) The wind had risen somewhat, and light clouds drifted at intervals across the moon. The ground the two were traversing was broken up Into regu. lar slopes; It was rough, and the ra vines between the low hills were coe vered with brushwood. Suddenly, just as a cloud passed from the moon's face and light succeeded a short In' lerval of obscurity, during which the progress of the two men on the dan gerously rough ground of tile little val. loy had been temporarily arrested, Dalray caught his friend's arm and Ipolned upwards. "What's that?" he said under his breath. Tllghman did not see anything unusual. Then he became aware of an appearance which had startled Dal' ray. They were, as has been said, makl ing their way with some difficulty along a ravine. On...
PRIVATE STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914
PR VATE STREETS. In compliance with a request from the members of the Footscray Coun cil, Mr Neylan, city engineer, sub mitted a list of the most urgent works required in the various wards of the city at last Monday night's meeting, The list, which is here published, is a rather formidable one and, if carried out, should keep a large number of men employed. The private streets and rights-of-way will have to be carried out under improvement loan, the public highways will probably have to stand.for the present. Cr McDonald said it would be wise to defer discussion of the matter for a fortnight, Cr Pearce-The public streets will have to be deferred for some time, but for private streets the money might be raised by debentures, the work to be done under the improvementloan system. Cr Johnson-You'll defer a lot of things yet. Cr Harris--I think it would be better to defer this discussion for a week at least, In the case of private rights of-way the persons interested should be notified. ...

GARDEN NOTES. TREATMENT OF FERNS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914
*xAJRDEN NOTES. By Ms ED. GRAY. TREATMENT OF FERNS, Most persons who have a collection of pot plants include a few ferns of different species. As these require separate treatment as regards soil and culture, and as this is the proper time for repotting them, I propose to give a few cultural hints, which I hope will interest growers of terns. I shall not here make any difference between the species, as forall of them the general treatment as regards soil and moisture is practically the samte, and all require shade. There are, of course, a large number of ferns which are nativesof tropical climates, and these need aitiicial temper atures. \\'hen buying new speci mens enquiry should always be made as to the temperature they require, as attempting to grow tropical ferns under ordinary greenhouse or veran dah treatment can only end in dis appointment. One of the first con siderations should be the kind of pot to use. This should not be too large in proportion to the size of the plant, an...

LAGROSSE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914
LA GROSSE. When Footscray met Carlton early in the season they were easily defeated but they made amends -last Saturday by defeating them on the local ground by 6 goals to 5. Footscray were handicapped by the absence of their captain, and goal-keep er, but the latter's position was ably filled by Booth, who "kept" splendidly. The game was close and exciting through out; never more than one goal separat ing the contestants. Towards the final stages it was inclined to get out of hand but arguments were not prolong ed, and in the last quarter all energy was concentrated on securing the de ciding goal, After 10 minutes play Carlton were first to score making the tally 5 to 4 in their favor; the home side equalised, and with only four minutes to go, the excitement was intense. Carlton attacked but their shot went astray, and the next moment they were defending; some good assing by the ;cals ended in a goal, thus giving them he match by one g Besides the goal-keeper, others w,. ,v ere pro...

THE PATRIOTIC FUND EXPECTED GENERAL RESPONSE LACKING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 29 August 1914
STHE PA TRIO TIC FUND EXPECTED GENERAL RESPONSE LACKING. During the week donations to the local patriotic fund have been coming in steadily but it cannot be said that expectations have been nearly realised. It is not possible for every Britisher in Australia to offer his services for the ldefence of the Empire, but those who aire staying behind can at least do some thing to improve the lot and assure the peace of mind of those who are going forth to fight our battles. This can best be done by providing funds that will :suffice to keep from suffering those who I lose their bread-winners as the result of the war that has been thrust on the Empire and that will be available to as sist the warriors, many of whom may be wounded or permanently incapaci tated, on their return. But so far com paratively few residents have contrib uted, and the names that are missing from the lists would fill a book. This is not like Footscray and suggests that what is needed is a public meeting to stir up s...
