As is usual upon all such occa S;iulls, there were many' whs' came bustling anid excited at the last mo mont, and had to be pushed into com partmeonts already filled; but the Aus t ralian travelling public as a rule dis plays rare good humour under such circumstances, and it happened so in our compartment, ind the two young fellows who were standing were soon seated on steel hat boxes, kindly placed at their disposal by the ladies to whom they belonged. We had husbands, wives and children, the children proud ly- displaying the gifts tihat Santa Claus has brought them. One..young m"an proclaimed by his talk thit he had ...

FAT-BABY MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
FAT-BABY MISTAKES. The pronouncement against fat ba bies made at the Medical Cdongress in Paris recently is fully endorsed by a famous London specialist in children's diseases. - - "Far from being a sign of health, superflous fat on a baby," the doctor states, '!is commonly a sign of rickets. Again, the infant brought tip on ovtr starchy artificial foods is 'very often of great bulk, which, though ple?ising to the mother, is recognisable .t once by the physician as die to disordered digestion. Food, to dd the most good, should be chiefly used up in supplying bodily warmth, muscular and nervous energy, and building.material for mak ing new? bone and muscle. If, instead of fulfilling these main purposes, the food is stored .up in the system as fat, it shows that something is radically wrong with the diet. Generally speak ing, the excess fat is dde to too much starch in the diet. The remedy is to cut down the bread, mashed potatoes, etc., and to substitute pure milk- for any artificial...
The "Age" and the Kilt. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
Iho "Age" and the Kilt. The "'Age" opposed the wearing of the ki';i by Scotchman and descend ants ol Scotchmen in the Australian Army. So far as the reasoning mind goes it does not matter a continental what uniform -a regiment, wears provid ing the squad fights on our side. and ir it ensures their loy:alt to Austra lia, let; them wear any patriotic uni form they please. Blocking the wear ing of tho kilt would be altogether too absurd a. cause for creating disaffec tion amongst every Scottish-Anstra lian in the ranks of our army. Let conmon sense prevail and Scotty retain his kilt, and let no silly dissension ureato disunion iamongst our soldiery. Otherwiso Australia will pay the pen alty by losing the services of those clad ill "petticoats," as the '-Age" un feelingly dubs the kilt.
Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
Fire. On Tuesday afternoon last some boys, playing with matches, set fire to the grass on a vacant allotment of ground in Ardoch street, Essendon. The boys promptly made Ithemselves scarce, without raising an alarm, but fortunately some neighbours saw the smoke, turned their lhose on, and heat the fire out with old rugs. etc. As the fire reached the dividing fence before it was extinguished, the danger can be realised to tho neighbouring pro perties, and but for tho? prompt action taken by several lady residents, some serious damage to property would have resulted. It would be "well if all parents rigidly cautioned their children against the dangerous prac tice of lighting fires in the open air. It is supposed in the present case, the offending boys were indulging in the injurious practice of cigarette smok ing.

"THE AGE." FOUR WARDS FOR BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 8 January 1914
"THE AGE." FOUR WARDS FOR BRUNSWIfC K. It is probable that a petition inder section 42 of the Local Governmen6it Act will be prepared, asking that an additional ward should be created at Brunswick. The present subdivision is obviously unfair, as the North ward equals the other two-Middle and South-put together. The valuation returns show that this year the total is £234,188, and of that the North ward provides £101,855. The Middle ward is only half that amount. In regard to population the totals are: North ward, 16,269; Middle, 7471; South ward, 12,966. This shows con clusively that the North ward is pirac tically half of Brunswick. While, however, there are six councillors for the Middle and South wards, there are only-three for the North. The present proposal for the division of the city into four wards is to adopt the natural geograpnical division of Sydney road and V\ictor:a street. On the western side of Sydney road there would be one ward from Park street wvest to V c toria st...
