The War. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 17 April 1915
The War, The Southern Cross Times, West Australia, publishes a para graph, in a recent i'sue, which might well be read with profit in all parts of the empire:- "When the war broke out," writes the Editor, "and it became known that that woo:leu sox :wouid be of help to our soldiers, Masda-ues Henry and Chadwick,--the two oldest women on the fields-set to work, knitting their own wool, and though both the: old ladies are practically bed-ridden, they have turned out more useful articles than any dozen of the yo'ung ones. Their example might well be fol lowed on this -und other fields by both young and old."

Go Thou and Do Likewise. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 17 April 1915
Go Thou and Do Likewise. An example worthy of emu lation was furnished in connection with the. Clayton State-school effort in aid of the Belgian Relief Fund, which yielded over £22 - a very satisfactory return, especially as the whole amount was raised in one afternoon. .Master Levett had a lamb, which he tended carefully till it grew into a sheep, and he freely gave it for the benefit of the fund, the raffle bringing in £4/15/ The lucky winner was Cr Winm. Forster, of Notting Hill, who will ;ow be enabled to have mutton ad damper galore. The old num,ery rhyme describes how "Ma-y had a 'little lamb," which when "it wandered to the school one da-y made the children laugh and play;" but this lamb of Master Levett's was taken to the school when it had grown to a sheep and there turned to practical account. It was a kindly and self-denying act, and we hope to see the example extensively copted. Master Levett had a little lamb, Its fleece was white as snow And when the Belgian Fund calme...

Gaulfield Park.

In reply, the Mayor and council lors waited as a deputation on the Minister last week to lay before him their views. The Mayor (Cr F. W. Eggleston) said that the council had been ap pointed a board of management to the park, and in the exercise of its discretion it had decided to renew an old fence which had been in existence for nearly twenty years, and had got out of repair.

Oakleigh Congregational Church. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh and Caulfield Times Mulgrave and Ferntree Gully Guardian — 17 April 1915
Oakleigh Congregationa! Church. Anniversary services in connec tion with the above were held on Sunday last, conducted by the Rev David Hennessey, who de livered two able and instructive discourses. The texts in the morning were taken from Romans S, 22: " For we know that the whole creation groaneth and trav aileth in pain together until now." Revelation 21, 4 : Neither shall there be any more pain." The preacher opened with the state ment that the present time is in many respects similar to the apos tolic age. The Roman Empire ruled the world by virtue of military conquest, and occupied the position now sought by Ger many under the Kaiser. It had a paralysing effect on every phase of national life. In such days as these Christ came to preach the gospel to the poor (that is, slaves), for those who were not Romans were slaves, and to establish a kingdom of righteousness. The then known world groaned under the iron heel of Roman militarism. The most awful fact in life is death, and th...
