CHURCH GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 October 1914
CHURCH GOVERNMEN1'. Blefore a large attendance of memn hers of the Presbyterian Young Men's Society last Sunday, Rev. A. WV. Hu ler delivtred an address upon the form of government existing in the Presbyte-rian Church. It had, he pointed out, a truly scriptural origin taking the form of that ap plied to the Synagogue government by elders, as against the temple form or govei nmcnt by bishops. I was democratic in principle as the elders, con-isting of ruing and governing elders, are elected by tihe vote of the congregation. The ruling elder be ing the minister was also selected by the votes if the people. Another principle which he referred to was the absolute equality of ministers. He instanced the fact that the mod e at r of the Commonwealth As sembly, if pre-ent at the proceedings of the Assembly of Melbourne North, would b- so as a purely private repre&lt;entative exercising no prece dence whatever AIr Butl r made brief reference to the rights of in dividual members of the...
THE COURT HOUSE. PROPOSAL TO PURCHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 October 1914
THE COURT HOUSE. PROPOSAL TO PURCHASE. The local council has for some time been discussing a proposal to purchase that portion of the town hall buildings now used as a court house and which they con-ider is required for office accommod tion. It might, however, be possible to worry along on the present accom modation by work ng in relays; that is when the head of one department is out the s'affof another could make use of the office accommodation and so on. A ratepayer was noted sit ting on the town hall step and re marking 'Hallo! taking a rest!" he replied "I have to. I c me down here to pay an account but there is no one he e to receive it, they have all gone to lunch." Just picture to yourself a business firm shutting down on account of some one having to go to lunch. It will be remembered that Mr D. M Kinnon visited Footsrray a few wtek's ago, inspected the building' and was impressed with the necessity for a new court house. On Monday however, the Crown Law Depart ment infornim...

GARDEN NOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 October 1914
'A RDENV NOTES. By MR ED. CpAy. THE FLOWER GARDEN. Spring is now upon us and one of the most important branches of the work in the garden is the sowing of seeds. This is the natural season for the germination of a large num ber of different varieties of seeds and excepting those that require more heat almost any seeds may now be sown. It is a good time to sow seeds of the popular Phlox Drunm mondi, and as this is so much sought after by am iteurs, I will offer a few suggestions as to the be-t way to raise it from seed. It is not the easiest seed to get to grow, hut the extra trouble taken with it will be well rep id by the result. The soil should be light and rich, and the situation exposed to the sun. If new ground can be had it will be the best, but failing this the next best plan is to remove the old soil from the sp it where the seed is to be sosn to a depth of 6 inches, and re place with some good light soil free from weeds and pe~ts. If access to a grass padd. ck can be had, c...
