ON WITH THE DANCE A deputation of residents of Yarra ville, residing in the vicinity of Mr Craven's dancing room, and consist ing of Messrs Collins, HI-ereon, Mc Innes and Poliness, attended at the council meeting on Monday last for the purpose of stating their objec tions why permission should not be granted Mr Craven to extend his premises to be used for the purpose of dancing. Mr Collins stated that he had no complaint to make regarding the conduct of the place and had no quarrel with Mr Craven. He had, however, to-work very hard and did not wish to have his rest disturbed. A neighbour had complained to him also, but when he asked him if he would come down to the council he replied " No, I could not get a dance if I offended Mr and Mrs Craven. " One of the local papers had called this a neighbour's quarrel, but there was no quarrel, Cr -IHarris-Nonsense, This must be a neighbour's dispute. What else is it ?

Locally, there are a number of first-class cricketors, but, unfortunately, owing to tile £act, that the Footscray Club is not. in the highest of the senior grades, not all play with the locals. However, it. l hoped that some day Footscray, re presenting an Important and growing district, as it does,, will he admitted to toe ranks of the V.C.A., lut, ill the meantimle, it should be the taim of cricketers in this district to show that they are worthy of prolmotiol by proving their superiority in the sub district association.

GARDEN NOTES. HINTS TO BEGINNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 3 October 1914
GARDEJJ .NOTES. By r MEu : HINTS TO-BEGINNERS. In order to get the best results from the garden it is necessary to have some knowledge of the soil and its constituents, and how to prepare it in the best manner for the recep tion of plants. The average amat eur scratches over the soil and puts in a miscellaneous assortment of cut tings given by his friends, and some times these are what the friends are anxious to get rid of. This kind of gardening seldom gives satisfaction, as the plants that survive this treat ment (which is often augmented by the industrious attentions of the neighbours fowls) generally turn out to be weeds. However, I find I am wandering from the subject which was to have been something about the .soil. Plants derive the chief part of their sustenance from the soil, and as the growth of different species of plant is dependent on certain sub stances contained in it, it is obvious that an intelligent system of feeding the plants, through the medium of the soil, is a...
BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 3 October 1914

It will require a lot of koelelnes, enthusiasm and practice on the part of those who are to form Footscray's pennant teams to make up for the loss of the several front-rank playe'rs who, for some reason or other, have held aloof from selection. The lons of the services of such players Ias A. Wintle, WV. Smith, F. Wallalce, IJ. Grifftths a11nd others fronl pennant .i tealms cannot but be a haludical to the club, but the position Ihas to be -faced, and 4cal only .be overcomel by grim determinatton on the ?amrt of those who have renmained loyal. For tunately, many of the younger mem bers are coming along well, and, all pulling together, it may be that the Etanding aloof of some of the "old heads" ,may result in improvement after all. The green was ofilcially opened last Saturday, 'but it cannot be said that the ceremony was of an inspiriting character. The function was shorn of all display, and the attractiveness: of the openings of years gonlle by...

WILLIAMSTOWN RACING CLUB, The Willinmstown Racing club, which is a very progressive institution, has decided on the erection of an up-to-date scratching board in a promineut posi tion on the outer grounds, opposite the grand stand. The board will be on al most similar lines to that at Fleming ton, and the numbers of the starters and riders will be displayed in bold figures and letters, so that they may be easily discernible from all parts of the course. In addition, provision will be made for acquainting the publiC with the positions of the horses at the barrier in each event---information that is useful to many backers, particularly when a large field takes part in a race. Mr C. F. Orr, the secretary, anticipates that the new board will be placed in position for the Williamstown Cup meeting, when the new course,, on which a large sum has been expended, will be raced on for the first time.
