The Catching of Rats. CR NAYLOR'S CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914
The Catching of Rats. CR NAYLOR'S CRITICISM. Speaking at the Prahran City Council meeting on Monday evening Or Naylor made .reference to the question of rat destruction. He said their own Town Hall buildings were swarming with rats. The catcher was drawing a good salary, and how could the number of rats be decreased when the council's own buildings were alive with them. . Cr Chambers, chairman of the health committee, maintained that the rat catcher was doinghis work well. Seventy or eighty sails-were produced for one week, and the average was well kept up. Cr Mcllwrick-Did you count the_ tails ? Cr Chambers-No,: I took it for granted. I am sorry to hear Cr Naylor running down the rat catcher. Cr Naylor-I am not. Cr Chambers -The rat catcher is doing his work as well as any man. It is -not a pleasant duty. If Cr Naylor wanted to see the practical results of the rat catcher's work he should attend meetings of the health committee. Cr Naylor expressed no eagerness to do so.

Municipal Motor Lorries COST OF REPAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914
Municipal Motor Lorries COST OF REPAIRS. On the pay sheet of the Prahran Council were three accounts under the heading, " Repairs motor lorry." The amounts were £5 5s, £17 12s 6d, and £2 18s 3d. Cr Ginn made pointed allusion to the fact or over £20 being spent on the repiir of the council's motor lorries. If the cost of the repairs was going to amount up, and the money be divided amongst three firms, the sooner the council had a renort as to whether any saving was effected by the motor lorries the better. Cr Naylor said the accounts re ferred to were for material supplied for repairing the motor lorries. The council some time ago appointed a kind.

Salvation Army. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914
Salvation Army. On Thursday evening the Prabran branch of the Salvation Army con tributed a tableau and musical fes tival, which was particularly meri torious. The vocal and instrumen. tal numbers were particularly good. while the tableaux were certainly as near pertcction as anyone could wish for. The different tableaux had all been carefully thought out, each one illustrating some teaching which must have been productive of much good. The scenio effects were grace ful and refined, the posing was natural, while the lighting was good and the scenery appropriate. The hall was crowded. Brigadi r Sharp presided, tdjutani and Mrs. Par sons, the offic rs in cha:ge of the Prahran corps, are to be highly con gratulated on the splendid entertain ing and educational evening provided. To-morrow Brigadier Sharp will conduct the services ; on Tuesday the Army will hold a half night of prayer, and on Thursday evening the tableau and musical festival will be repeated.
