ILETURNED FOOTS6'RA Y ITES. After a voyage full of incident, the Blue Funnel liner Nestor reached Port Melbourne on Monday morning from Glasgow via Capetown. England was in a fever of excitement when passen gers sailed on 7th August, owing to the declaration of war, and until arrival at the Cape the passage was made with lights dimmed, and the customary course was altered. This precaution was adopted so as to avoid German vessels which were known to be in the vicinity, and seeing that at one stage the vessel was within 20 miles of the armed merchantman, Kaiser Wilhelm de Grosse, since sunk by H.M.S., HIighflyer, Captain R. D. Owen and his officers experienllced an anxious time, a fact that was acknowledged by passen -ers, who presented the former with an address eulogising his services.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 September 1914
The electrical suenrintendent fMr Carmody) reporttle to lthe council on Monday evening that on September 10th the police prosecuted 7 boys at the children's court for wilfully breaking street lamps. In each cawe a fine of £2 with 13/1 costs was imposed, which should stand as a warning to other youths who have the spirit of vandalism strongly developed. Broken lamps have cost the council a considerable sum to replace and another annoying feature of Footscray's electric light business is the amount of money lost in bad debts. On this subject Mr Carmody reported that nine summonses for arrears had been issued during August and that in other instances supplies had been cut off because of non-payment of accounts. This policy, he added, appeared to be having a good effect. But those who have to bear -the burden of those bad debts, the general ratepayer, will pro bably be agreed that some better sys tem is needed; that a method should be devised to make the contraction of bad debts impossi...

I Caldecott, of Footscray, left Australia on a tour of the world, there was no idea of the present war breaking out. But while the party was in London war was declared; the troop offered itself for active service and the British war office accepted the offer, with the idea of utilising thle young trainees in England, subject to the approval of the cadets' parents. Letters, breathing the spirit of the true Australian youth, no whit less a Britisher because born in Australia, have been received by Mr and Mrs Caldecott, from their sons and a quotation or two therefrom provides interesting reading. Master Roy Caldecott, under date 5th August, says, "The last few days have been the time of our lives.
