Fawkner v. Loch Park. FOR SILVER CUP. 'iho above clubs-met on the Loch Park's ground on Saturday, July 4th, for the first of three matches for the silver cup presented by Mr Wyllie, Fawknet s president. The game was interesting throughout, and resulted in ai in:for Fawkner by a small mar gin. The game was very rough all through, and shows how necessary it is to ah?iavs have police protection. There were no less thrin four fights, u'hich does not reflect credit on' either tearn. Soev?rl of LIch Park's, men: played s-rry blough, the reason for this being because several of Loch Park's best players left' their team and join ed Fawkner. The game resulted as fololws: Fawkner, 6.8 (44 points). Loch Pari-k, 5.13 (43 points). Although Fawkner won, it must be remembered that several of Loch Park's best players left and joined Fawkner, viz., J. Caird (their cap tain), G. Huntington, W. Huntington, and without these players it would be 10 to 1 on Loch Park, as there is no doubt that the two Hu...

Wards System. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 10 July 1914
Wards System. * Thle following is a copy of a sircu lar of the advocates of the abolition of the wards system in Brunswick: Municipal Reforan: The initiative in this movement has., been taken by a conference of representatives from the various Raitepayers' Associations with in the City of Brunswick who are not satisfied that our city has made the progress that it should. The Ward Sys temrn, we unhesitatingly say, is respon sible for this unsatisfactory condition. Reasons owhy the ward system should be ibol0ishd: Couficillors do not repre sent thie city s as whole but only a portion of it, and they are only re sponsible to the portion they repre sent. The ward system is responsible for thl apathy of electors at election time. A contest in any one ward is frequently of no interest to the rate pa.yers of the neighbouring, wards. The interest in municipal matters is confin ed exclusively to the wards, instead of being applicable to the whole nmuni cipality, and the municipality in con s...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. DARING BANK RAID. A bank robbery which for sheer audacitty has never be equallled lby ny re olutionary episode occurred in the heart of .Moscow on the after noon of March 2t, 1 901. when a baid of thirty mnca entered the Mutual Credit annk, overpowered the armed guards, and escaped with £90,000. It was just at closing time, when Moscow's great. army of clerks were hurrying hormenards, that the desper ate revolutionaries lounmled careless ly into the bIank, in parties of two and three, apparently for the pur pose c. cashing drafts. When about ten were visible they suddenly drew revolvers, and covered the armed guards, while twenty other revolu tionaries rushed into the building and barricaded ihe doors-the leader ostentatiously placing a larae infer nal machine in the middle of the fiocr. Squads of men drove the clerks into an inner room. disarmed the gunrds, and ransacked tie desks and safes, the leader threatening to explo:de the infernal machine of the li...

Jenny, now left on her own, work ed her way gradually to London, where she fell among a gang of skill e:1 thieves and pickpockets. At once the pretty Irish lass became an adept at picking pockets.

The Lord 1Mayor,;-in sentencing a notorious pickpockect, reniarked that it was only owing to people's care lessness that pickpockets flourished, so Jenny made a bet that she would humble the boaster.

ABOUT ABYSSINIA. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
ABOUT ABYSSINIA. -------+-- Abyssinia is a mountainous state in Eastern Africa, bordering on the Southern extremnity of the led Sea. ft is about six times the size of Scotland, but its population is some what the samne (4,000,000). It has ,een called the African Switzerland on account of its fine, jagged moun tain peal') and high tablelands. Int. mnlike that little country, it can boast also of fertile valleys in which peach and apricot, orange and ci tron trees flourish. Owing to its height above the sea, the climate of Abyssinia is com paratively cool anl very healthy. T'he rich soil, howe;er, is little cul tivated, for the Aiyssinians are far too busy fighting with and pillag ing one another to have much tone or opportunity for farmiag. Their chief employn ent, when at peace, is in raising cattle, which fted on the vast nmeado.vs among the hills. I.ions, elephants, gazelles graceful antelopes, huge snakes, and deadly scorpions are all to be found in Abyssinia. The inhabitants clo...

THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. Inventors have been working on the mechanical milker for years. Like every other invention of importance there were necessarily many failures before success crowned the efforts of the man who was able to picture in his mind a machine that would re lieve the dairy farmer of much of the so-called drudgery of his work. To-dal the milking machine is a success. There are unquestionably many who will te!l you otherwise, but the truth of the situation is demonstrated by the machines that are in practical successful operation every day in the year. The mere fact that the use of the milking machine has been discontin ued on some farms may be mislead ing. An illustration will make this clear. A dairy farmer who milks about 100 cows producing a very high class producd which tops the market in a western city installed a machine a few years ago. The expense in this case was an item of considerable im portance. After using the milking machine for a time it was di...
FROM THE WORLD'S PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
FROM THE WORLD'S PRESS. In an interview with a newspapel reporter. a doctor granted the bene fits of new legislation, the fresh air movement, the tempcrance wave, and so on. ''"But," he said, "I'1 bet on civilisation creating as many new conditions for disease as science discovers cures. You've got the sanatoria for consumptives, but we doctors have got the picture pala ces. Think of their popularity-all in darkness, never a ray of day light. Why, they are jideal gern breeding chambers. And crammed with people all day long. If you continue to have the picture palace, doctors will never starve." The latest animal story from the other side of the Atlantic, says the "Westminster Gazette," concerns a cat, belonging to Major Cannon, ol the Quartermiaster's Departrment at Governors' sland. Conmmnodore Nutt, as the cat is called, was sena tencel to banishment from the island for In aing the squirrels his favour ite diet. The cat was exceedingly wily in its methods. lIe would roll a lnut ne...
Amphitheatre Incidents [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
Amphitheatre Incidents 0 Mir Parker, of the Brunswick Sports Depot, b58 Sydney road, is palpably a c·lan player of the game. He handled his case in favor of a. local Amphi theatre at theo nlast Brunswick Council nmeeting in the best of gentlemanly fashion and exhibited candorn, frank ness, cquarnimity of maftner, fairness, and every other quality generally at tributed by many peaple to be absent from a sport. In fact, it was quite on the enards that if he had fraternised witlh the opposition speaikers he would lhavo disaimed them of their hostility and opposition ,ltogether. Since tIhet ,ouncil nmeeting circulars were issued calling a publlic micetotin at the Bruns wick Town Hall on Inst Mionday to protest againrst the erection of the builrding.

AIR RESISTANCE IN TUNNELS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
AIRRESaSTANCoE IN TUNNELS. When a train goes through a tun nel the resistance of'the air is an important- factor, experiments has ing demonstrated that it measures 183.6lb. per .ton of train weight in the Simnplon tunnel, as against only 8.81b. in the open air, a dilffer ence of over 50 per cent, This is whei~ the train is rtumning nt 37 miles an:hourin .the, direction of the ven tilatiig air currenti; w hen runiniing in the opposite direction the resist ance inccases to '20.461b. These facts point out the significance of the new tunnel, costing somno £.1,S00,000, which is now being built and will parallel the old, with numerous cross turmels con necting them, to promote an equi librium between the air masses in the tunnels, and thus reduce the re sistance, In Oriental countries, as is well known, the natives think more lightly of marriage than is the case in those countries where Christian iCty is Orinly established. A mar~ riage isbroken off, for instance, on very trifling grounds...

Essendon Electorate. DR. MARTELL SPEAKS. Dr. HI. P. Martell, the selected Lib eral candidate for Essendon, opened his Coburg campaign at the local town hall the other night in the presence of a small a.ttendanco. Ex-Cr. Spring~ hall presided. The Ca ndidate said there was no member of the medical profession at present in the House. He hardly knew why. It might be owing to the strenu ous lifte led by doctors, or was it, as they caenle into such close contact with thelir patients oni both sides of the po litical biattle. -that- they were afraid to colme out into the open folr fear of wounding the susceptibilities of pa tienits?
