DANCE ROOM OBJEUTED TO " I want to state the true facts to the council" remarked an irate ratepayer at Monday night's council meeting. He had listened impatiently to the reading of. a letter from Charles W. Craven, of 17 Smith street, Yarraville, and evidently had much to say in contradiction, but he was pacified by a promise that he would be heard next Monday evening when the whole matter would be gone into. In his letter Mr Craven said he saw by the local paper that a petition had been presented praying that permission to use premises therein mentioned as a dancing hall be discontinued, and also for the with drawl of the pcrmission recently granted for the extension of the building on the ground that it was being used as a public dancing hall and was a nuisance.

GARDEN NOTES. HINTS TO BEGINNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 September 1914

6TARDEN NOTES. By MR ED. GRAY. HINTS TO B-GINNERS. Having matrked out the walks, take into consideration how much of the remaining ground you are likely to be able to keep in order as flower beds, and also how much can be kept up as a lawn. This of course depends entirely on the size of the ground, and must be left to your judgment. But no matter how small the beds they should be sur rounded with a good breadth of green grass as nothing is so refreshing to the eye, or sets off the flower beds so well as well kept grass. The flover beds should next be marked out, by small pegs driven in to denote the edges. These should then be cut out with a sharp spade. The designs of the beds is a matter of fancy; but generally speaking circular or oval beds are the best for amateurs, and always look better than squares. Designs having sharp angles or points are always hard to keep in shape, as the edges soon wear with the constant trimming necessary. \Vhere a bed adjoins an walk and a grass edgin...

COUNCIL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 26 September 1914

CO UNCL; NOTES. A tardy start was made by coun cillors at the meetings of committees on Monday evening consequent upon a preliminary sitting of the Legisla tive committee which as ever con ducts it affairs in the safety of the chamber with the closed door. When a start was made the Finance committee sat and, ap parently without a tremor, received a somewhat disquieting financial report. Cr Harris, chairman, usual ly so prompt in watching the state of the funds, was silent and this fact suggests that there are some pay ments due to the council that will equalise matters within a few days. The report in question showed that the rece:ipts for the fortnight totalled £353/8/5, which brought the debit-blance to {2o29/12 IO To the latter was added .1473/1/9, accounts passed for payment bring ing the debit balance to [3502/I4/7, or .1922/17/2 mnore than at the same time last year.
