WHEN THE AUDIENCE JUMPED! [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
W;HEN THE AUDIENCE JU:iPED I -4---~---- The coolness and presence of mind of Mmn. Patti, the famous prima onna, are strikingly illustrated by ome thrilling experiences she has re ated. On the night of her operatic debut :n New York, when she was only :i-??-n. a man hung his coat care i-"-s, over the front of the gallery, and a pistol in his pocket went off in the middle of the performance. For an instant everyone on the stage stopped still; then the artis tes went ahead again, and the audi ence was reassured. "Another time in Vienna," the great singer wrote, "I was singing in 'Lucia,' and had just begun the cadenza with the flute, in the Mad Scene, when my long, flimsy sleeve caught ire in the zas. Without stop ping, I tore i' -ft and finished the aria. But that tmune, after I got be hind the scenes and everything was over I fainted. "On another occasion, in San Frhn cisco, a man -threw a bomb, which exploded on the stage. The audiencei rose in terror, and, fearing a panic might ens...
FLOCKS OF SUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
FLOCKS OF SUNS. Every new invention of the as tronomer's observatory enlarges the dist.ance he canm peer into space ana measure its receding boundaries, so that one can never say which is the farthest star. But we can say which is the far thest distance measured. This honour is at present borne by a tiny blur of light, which has no name, and a few years ago was not noticed, but which is now identified in the New General Catalogue of stars as Number 7,006 or, more precisely, N.G.C. 7,006. It is not really one star, but a great flock of stars, probably con taining more than the equivalent of a quarter of a malion of our suns; and it is so far away that if some unknown astronomer could flash a light-signal at us from one of the suns or planets there, it would be nearly a quarter of a million years before that message could reach us. There is good reason to believe that this flock of stars is moving to wards us. It is hardly necessary to say that it will take a long time coming. The fas...

The convener, Mr. Denis Murphy, junr., in outlining the objects of the meeting, welcomed Cr. Murphy to the chair. Cr. Murphy, ývho was received with cheers, emphasised the importance of what was a district council, a social club, and a literary- and debating so ciety combined: He said they wanted to impress on. the people and the Government the importance, the rich ness and the picturesqueness of their beautiful district. They want a good train service, mail service, railway extension and electrification, and will wait a very long time for these if they don't organise and let everyone know that these things will pay, and that they deserve them. Progress as sociations have benefited other dis tricts. Is Arthur's Creek to be a solitary exception? Mr. Smale moved, and Cr. Murphy seconded and carried, that...

Eltham Police Court. TUESDAY, MAY 22. (Before Mr W. G. Smith, P.M, and Mr C. Wraight, J.P.) LICENSING CASES. The licensee of the Panton Hill - tel (Mrs Bowen) was charged with hav- ing a second bar on the premises, at the rear of the house, where the police were served with liquor on Sunday afternoon. February 11. &nbsp; This was an adjourned case and the defendant was unable to be present. Her son appeared for her, but did not plead guilty. The P.M. said that was the first case of its kind, and it may not be right to convict, and yet an injustice to dismiss it. If defendant attended and pleaded guilty it may save her ex- pense. The case would be adjourned for a month. Inspector Banks said he had similar cases pending in other places, and he hoped by next court day to have had them threshed out. WARRANDYTE HOTEL.

Dinkum Oil. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 25 May 1923
Dinkum Oil. There's jubilation in the town That will depression foil, For lo, it has been handed down That Epping stands on oil. Old Epping stands upon a creek Of pioneering fame. For if you early records seek 'Tis there you'll rind its name. 'Twas there that Batman bought some land At quite a modest price, But soon was made to understand Such methods were not nice. And now the Darebin flows on In just the same old way, And men have come and men have gone And some are here to-day. And Scott's emulsion is on tap To wish success and health, That oil may be the primal cap The stepping stone to wealth. They've planted out a load of pegs On leasehold applications, And soon we'll see the poppet legs &nbsp; And boring operations. And should it prove a great success And oil their efforts crown, 'Twill make this stony wilderness A place of some renown. Though many men have tried to set The Darebin on fire, So even now a man may get The gist of his desire. But should it be proclaimed ...
BOXING GLOVES OF LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 June 1923
BOXING GLOVES OF LEAD. Boxing is one of the wc cld's oldest sports. The noble art of self-defence was practised more than thirty cen turies ago. It was indeed a strong man's game. One hero, called Enceladus, used to slay oxen by giving them one blow between the eyes with his fist. Boxing gloves were in use even in those early days ; but there was a difference. The glove of to-day is a padded affair dfep.ned to soften thd effect of a blow. n formnner times it was meant to increase the force of the punch ! -It consisted of a strip of leather, reinforced with lumps of brass and lead, which was 'wound round the pugilist's fist. Men were willing to fight, not for a purse of thousands of pounds, but for a simple laurel wreath ! ,The box ing matches of those days were no joke, for in most cases the vanquish ed boxer was killed by the knock out blow.
THE HERRING'S BIG COUSIN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 June 1923
THE HERRING'S BIG COUSIN. Perhaps tne most exciting sport in the world is tarpon-fishing in the Gulf of Florida. T'ue tarpon is a gi gantic cousin of the herring, weigh ing anything up to 8001b. The fisher man uses a rod only ten feet or so in length, and a line that is little stronger than a piece of stout string. Sallying out in a motor-boat, he' trails behind him a fair-sized fish as bait. Suddenly there is a tremendous tug, and in a moment a tarpon six feet or more in length leaps out of the water. The fisherman strikes hard to drive his hook home, and then settles down to a grim fight. In his first fierce r-:sh the tarpon will often take 200 yards of line from the reel. The motor-boat goes after him at full speed, and for hours the fisherman must play his catch, now giving line, now winding in, until at length the greet dsh abandons the fight. The man who zaptrrrs a tarpon un der the rules of isa Florida Club is entitled to wear a special button, which marks him as a person of ...
THAT "STITCH IN THE SIDE." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 1 June 1923
,THAT "STITCI: IN THE SIDE." Any exercise to which we are not accustomed requires a speedy renewal of the oxygen in our blood, as the rapid movement of the muscles uses' this up at an exceptionally high rate. This extra supply of oxygen is sup plied to the lungs. %nd through them to the blood, mainly through the operation of the large breathing muscle called the diaphragm, which, though strong and broad, is rather delicate at certain points. The diaphragm is attached to the inner surfaces of each of the six tower ribs by fine strips of fibre, and the ribs themselves are moved by muscles between each oft them. Running, therefore, not only causes an extra strain upon the diaphragm itself, and also moves the ribs more rapidly, but puts an unaccustomed strain upon the strips of fibre which connrc the two, thus causing the pair, which we call a "stitch in the side.."

Research. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT). A very successful "Paddock par ty" was held at Research in aid of the Church building fund on Satur day, May 19.

Vincent, and the children sang several songs. The State school is nearing com pletion, and its re-opening will be heartily welcomed by the teachers, .scholars and parents.
