Origin of English Surnames A Study in Nomenclature [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 March 1924

Origin of English Surnames A Study in Nomenclature By Rev. A. H. MITCHELL, Footscray Mostly we take things as we find them-that is, of course, if our morals are defective and there are no police about. But in our better moments, we are inclined to specu late on the origin of things, and in extreme cases, may even endeavor to discover the owner of valuables left lying about casually. Many years ago, on the Snowy River side of Bonang, I came on a prospectors' camp, which was the headquarters of two capital fellows named Billy Mustard and Tom Pepper; and in recent dlays a mar riage was celebrated in a church where I preached occasionally, the contracting parties being, respec tively, Mr. Portwine and Miss Lambshcad. Between these occasions, lies the development of a hobby which has afforded me not only a great dcal of pleasure, but also an amount of information which could hardly be acquired apart from a study of sur names. Into this realm, the editor suggests we make an excursion, or ...

LADYBIRD A Short Complete Story [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 March 1924

LADYBIRD A Short Complete Stoiy BY HARRY FEARON It began on a very beautiful   morning in early June. The roses in the rectory garden were all a-bloom, great white clouds were floating as near to earth as they dared, songbirds were busy with nests and nestlings; and the very young Rector came out of his house to enjoy it all. It had been his house for only a few weeks. He was so young a Rector that this was his first charge, and so young a man that he longed to lay aside his clerical suit and go swinmming or fishing. He was both old enough and young enough, however, to enjoy every cloud and blossom and song; he was far from those monotonous years, of mid- die life when one day is much like another. His rectory garden was, indeed, a charming one. His parishieners had seen to that. The rectory was new and looked old, the garden was new and looked old, even the hedge that sur- rounded the garden and churchyard was tall of growth, but had been planted only a year or so. The...

OUR NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 March 1924

OUR NAVY. By B. McMahon. Ancient naval warfare was a charm ilgly simple thing. The opposing cori roanders: drove beaked vessels as har't as they could against each other. Skill and swiftne:-:; in manocuvring were ob viously of the highest importance'; to catch your enemy at the weakest point, and, :o to speak, hrnak hii: back, v;wat:s ;onme doing. The earliest pco ples having; efficient fleets seem to have ieen the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, 'ert;ianr, and Greels; the Greeks had fleets as early as the beginning of the -;hventht century I.C.-the first sea fight on record being that between the Corinthians and their colo.nists of Cor cyra in GGi B.C. The Peloponnesian War, where "Greek met Greek," did much to develop the art of early naval warfare. Later the system of fighting v:ith pointed prows was discontinued in favour of that which had always co exi::!.ed, namenly, the rtnninrg alongside and boarding by armed men, with whom each vessel was overloaded.

CRICKET. SUNSHINE v. ALBERT PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 March 1924

CRICKETo SUNSHINE v. ALBERT PARK. At the conclusion of ..the first day's :aay Albert Park were 42 up with no wickets down, Lathford and I-Ieffec nan being 21 and 17--not out respec tively. These two men continued their in nings last Saturday to the bowling of .McGrath cad Taylor. Frcm the start the bowling was good, the first four ovcrs being maidens, and only five runs coming from the next four overs. Lathford, before he had increased his first day's score, had a narrow es cape. In playing back to a ball from T1aylor he' hit it on to his wicket, but the bails remained on. In the next over from- Taylor he was clean bowled. 1-22--47.' iHeffernan'was joined by Fuller, and those two contiaued to. take the scor alcng quietly. Fuller was very for tr.natc, several catches just going be. yond the reach of the fieldsman. At this stage the captain was mak ing frequent changes in the howling tc try and effect a separation, but the score was carried to 131 before Hef ferna.n was well thrown ou...

BOWLN CLUBS SUNSHINE It. MIDDLE PARK. The postponed match in the B grade competition took place on Saturday last at the Middle Park green, and after a very exciting game was won by Sunshine. by the narrow margiz. of four points. This match was impo' tant, as it had an especial bearing on the premiership of the section, Middle Park having to win to be on top, fail ing which it would be necessary for them to play Melbourne and win. The small difference in the scores in the matches between these three clubs shows how keenly the premiership of the section was fought out, Middle Park defeating Sunshine o.n the local ground by four points. Melbourne also defeated them by the same margin, and Sunshine turned the table at Middle Park by the same number )f points. A most enjoyable gmne was played, and the Sunshine players were naturally very pleased with their win.

The iames of 70 residents willing to take electric light were submitted, and it was de cided to arrange a deputation to the electricity commissioners regarding cloctric supply for the district. It was decided to combife with the school committee regarding arrangements for the official opening of the new school building, which is now close to comple tion. .Mr. Luxford reported that the Keilor Shire Council had appointed an i.spec lor' to oversee the sanitary service, which it was hoped would consequently improve.

Public Utilities in Sunshine District [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 March 1924

Public Utillis in SUnsine District -0-~ While it is admitted that many things have bc:n clone to make Sun shine and the surrounding districts pleasant in which to live, there are still a few matters to be attended to whereby living conditions can be improved. The clcf tric light is sup plied to every house, but gas is non existent. Nowadays gas stoves have come to be lp?rt r.::d parcel of a kit chen, and they are of such a(lvantage that there is much demand for them. Not only can cooking be done quicker, but the waste. of fire in the stoves where wood is bus:cd is altogether out of proportion to the advaw.'tages of the gas stove. Young w-omen who are accustomed to the use of gas for cooking find it e:,:ccedingly awkward to be compelled to rely on the old f::.hioned stove, and it is devoutly; to be wished that somecthing will be done i.. improving the present condi tions in the houses. Then, again, the sewerage problem is one that should he dealt with. It is hardly to be expected tha...

Sou are sure of Values That's the wise buyer's poiicy When Wittner's stared in business hiere the Wittner Store was'a small one, but in those days Footscray was a small place, and the places surrounding Footscray were, to a very great extent, big open fields. If Wittner's attempted to s'art in a small way to-day in this district they would fail in business. Why? Simply be cause they could not finance an undertaking of the proportions necessary to cater for the many thousands of people now resident in and around this important centre. Wittner growth has been a steady growth. In its direc tion progressive policy has always been maintained. Its ob ject has always been to increase its stocks, to enhance its facili ties for the satisfactory handling of the ever-increasing volume of business it has secured. To-day it stands representative of Suburban Service at its best. No suburb in Greater Melbourne carries a stock as heavy, or presents a range so wide-and the heavier the stock and the ...

Sunshine Club in the V.J.F.A. SThe matter most discusesd while the winter gamc has been in recess concernced the proposal to take in a tenth club in the League. The ar gtuments for and against had loil; since been threshed out, and the dis. cussion had shown that there i; every likelihood of the 'scheme being adopted next season. The question concerning the club likely to be selec tcd for this honour will probably provide much food for reflection dur ing the cominig season.

Exorbitant Train Fares "The railway rare to Footscray is altogether too high. We have been told by the Commissioners that there is no tram competition here, and that they can charge what they like. We have endeavoured to cc.nvince them that that is a wrong attitude to adopt, but they will not reduce the fares." These remarks were passed by Cr. Johnson at last week's meeting of the P"ootscray council, when consideration was being givc: to a request from a number of ratepayers that permission be granted to hold a meeting of pro test in the town hall against the exor bitant train fares. The council dccided to comply with the request.
