LODGE MEETINGS. M.U.I.O.O.F. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924
LODGE MEETINGS. M.U.I.O.O.P. The Loyal Sunshine Lodge held their half-yearly meeting at St. Mark's Hall on December 4, and there was a fair attendance to see how the newly-installed officers car ried out their duties, and to hear the auditor's report and. balance-sheet. Past Grand Bro. E. W. Mounsey, in giving his report on the financial po sition of the lodge, said it was a plea sure to audit the books, as the secre tary was proving himself one of the best that the lodge had had. It was also pleasing to present the balance-sheet, because for the first time in the history of the lodge the funds were well over the four figure mark. The sick and funeral fund showed a credit balance of £1023/12/7, and the medical and management fund a credit balance of £64/7/7/, and membership of 130. The newly-in stalled officers are: I.P.N.G., Bro. J. C. Mounsey; N.G., Bro. L. Caithness; V.G., Bro. S. Mitchell; elect. sec., Bro. J. Bartlett; warden, Bro. W. McMil lan; guardian, Bro. C. E.

COUNCIL PARS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924
COUNCIL PARS ---0 In reply to Cr. Scott, the secrctary informed the Blraybroolk Shire Coun cil that lie a.nticipalted the main walls to be erected to the stage line by the end of this week, and the work of putting on the rout' girders would cormmentlce next wveekl.. He regarded the work of erection as proceeding sa!ti:;sfctorily. Cr. Glendenning came to light at Monday's meeting of the council with a p,roposal to substitute concrete slabs for asphalt on footpaths, which the council welcomed. The engineer was i.nstructedl to go into the matter, and said that a serviccable slab could be produced at the quarry, which, how ever, might be a trifle rougher than the slabs produced under hydraulic plressure. He promised to have a sample made and estimate the cost, The substitution of night for day meetings has necessitated the Bray brook Shire Council speeding up pro ceedings somewhat, and in order to dlo this much of the spade work re quiring lengthy consideration has been referred jto com...
THE LAST SWING OF THE ROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924
THE LAST SWING OF THE ROPE. For centuries the sea had pounded the beetling crags and chiselled many a chamber within the granite sides. It was the custom of the natives to hunt for birds' eggs among the cran nies of the cliffs. Two men general ly went together with their b:askets. They carried with them a strnog rope, the upper end of which would be fastened securely to a ledge or primitive windlass. Then one would lower himself with his basket, while the other remained to help hoist him to the top. When he reached the spot selected, he swung himself in on a. projecting platform and fastened the end of the rope preparatory to filling his basket. Once, just as the man who had gone down turned to commence his task, to his horror he discovered that the rope had become loose and was swinging back and forth over the sea and the pitiless rocks far below. One swing more and the rope would be beyond ais reach. It took but a sec. end for him to drop his basket and jump for the rope, which he...

WHAT TOMMY THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924
WHAT TOMMY THOUGHT. A teacher was noted for his pat riotic fervour. One day in cla s, while in a particularly uplifted mood, he turned to one, of his pupils, an average boy of twelve: "Now, Tommy," said he, "tell us what you would think if .you saw the Union Jack waving proudly over the field of battle." "I should think," replied Tommy, "that the wind was blowing."

VICTORIAN RACING Bookmakers and Their Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924
VICTORIAN RACING By "Observer." IBookmakers and ''heir Troubles. In every sphere of sport and busi ,ness you will find folk who don't know what they want even when they get it, but it is doubtful if there are any body of men anywhere who grumble more continuously and more inanely than bookmakers. Their big grouse at the present time is the mat Iv r of positions and the draw for them. Men who field with a paltry few pounds in their bag, and who go to the racecourse with £100 expecting to convert it into five or six over an afternoon's racing, are making a noise and demanding preference or at least an equal opportunity for the best po sitions with fielders whose holdings run into tens or twenties of thousands. Such a thing was never contemplated, and if these mi.nnows get the picked positions they won't ;now what to do when they get there, nor will they know or be able to handle the money that will come their way, expecting to make a bold bid to hang on to it by hook or by crook. Whil...

UNWELCOME QUARRY [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924
UNWELCOME. QUARRY Councillors learned with surprise on Monday evening that Essendon council was contemplating the open ing of a quarry on a site which was considered would spoil the effort of the residents of Maribyrnong to im prove and beautify their locality. Cr. Ravenhall said he was aware a peti tion had been lodged with the depart ment from the ratepayers, objecting to Essendon's action, and that the department had replied that the peti tion was receiving consideration. He would ascertain what the fate of the petition was. Councillors, however, said Essendon had commenced opera tions on the land by fencing some couple of months ago. As the by-law of Braybrook Shire Council has now been gazetted it will be necessary for the quarry to obtain the sanction of Braybrook council. The Braybrook council protested against the appli cation of Essendon for the land for quarry purposes, and succeeded in ob taining half the applied for land for its own use. The matter was referred to the qu...

DISTRESS WARRANTS For Defaulting Ratepayers At a recent meeting Braybrook ,hire Council decided to author .se the issue of distress warrants in cases where the orders of the Court were ignored. Again at last Council meeting councillors inquired if such action had been taken, and the rate collector re plied that he had taken action in three of the worst cases and the solicitor was dealing with the remainder. One case came before the Council in which the rate payer in distress asked time to pay, but the rate collector said the case had been hanging on for years and the council decided to leave the matter in the hands of the cllector, whose instructions j.re to obtain the money or levy n the goods of the ratepayers.
