BERWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 18 June 1914
BERWICK, Tho railway department, with ruth loss disregard to the convenience of the travelling public, still persist in dis allowing people to travel this side of WVarragulin the first train on Monday i? tnorning. Itseems to me that a betlter arrangement would be to run the first train as the ordinary and the second as . . an etpress to Warraguli timing it to reach there at about same time as the hrst traih. No one would be tnbs inconvbnienced. i Asaistatnt-.8.M. Pegler has been pro thibted S.M. at Darnuitn. During his term of office here Io has always heen a most obliging and courteous official. He was presented with a suitably inscribed silver cake dish as a memento 9f .his stay here, and thoroughly deserved the presentation. Mr Thoro, of Donnybrook, takes his place. Theo sooner the council appoints a town lamplighter the better for tLoso residents whose brsiness or pleasure takes thorn out of the main street. Mr..,T. S.

CLAYTON. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 18 June 1914
CLAYTON. At the last meeting of the Mulgrave Shire Council, Councillor McLorinan said that.he wished to voice the claims of Clayton residents for better railway accoeneod,,tion fW itilii5. .Fr nlont ths past they had urged the granting of extra trains for tho district, which was rapidly going ahead, over zoo families having settled there within ,he past two years. Not only were residents denied extra trains, but they were prevented from travelling by the MelbourneSale train, which ran half empty. It is felt that a monster petition or deputation should be got un to nrntest nrrninst lth r'inndo.nel mail train being closed to passengers, which is an absurdity. Clayton footballers visited Spring vale on Saturday, and after a rough and ready game, won by 3 points. There was a disgraceful scene at the finish, and some of the Springvale team who were looking for fight got all they wanted. It is difficult to understand why the umpire does not report these pugilistic players, and have -them ...

THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "1 have a little story to tell you, boys," the old doctor said to the young people the other evenling. "One day--a long hot day it had been, too -I met my father on the road to town. 'I wish you wollld take this package to the village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. L Now I was a boy of twelve, not fond of work, and was just out of the hayfield, where I had lbeen at work sillce daybreak. I was tired, dusty and hungry. It was two miles into town. I wanted to get my supper and to wash and dlress for singing school. MIy first impulse was to refuse, and to do it harshly; for I was vexed that he should ask me af ter my long dlay's work. If I did re fuse he would go himself--he was a gentle, patient old man-but solme hing stopped nme-one of God's goodl angels, I think. 'Of course, father, I'll take it,' I said. heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. tIe gave me the package. 'Thank you. Jin.' le said, 'I was going myself, but s~omehow 1 doll't feel very str...

" THE ARCADIANS." The " Arcadians" Quadrille Club held another of their very popular assemblies (the third of the sason) in the Town Hall, on Thursday even ing last. The occasion was made the more attractive as the date of the assembly happened on the 2ist an niversay of Miss Victoria Swords, daughter of Mrs Fred. W. Swords, president of "The Arcadians," who went to some extra trouble and ex pense in supplimenting the efforts of the " Arcadies " to make the assem blies a success. There were about fifty couples present and all fully en joyed themselves.

Scatter these upon the wet cloth on the plate. Spread tlhe other cloth over the seed and press it down. Then turn the other plate upside down on the plate witlh the seeds, leaving the cor ners of the cloths sticking out between the plates. Place where it is reason ably warm, and keep the cloths moist by sprinkllng with water two'or three times a day. Keep a record of the number of seeds that have sprouted each day, until no more seeds show signs of life. A week is as long as this shouldt take. If ninety to ninety flvo seeds grow, the gorunlatlon is pretty good, but below ninety the value of the seed begins to he doubt ful.
