Only immense wealth and influence has enabled Mr. Falkiner to obtain, possession of the "Muller" train, as the German authorities were not too favourably disposed towards allowing a Muller train to leave their country. However, this wonderful road tractor with its inventor--Major W. A. Muller-is in Melbourne, the train assembled all ready to demon strate what it can do under Australian conditions. Tihe train consists of a motor v...

The weather threatened disaster early in the day, but it gradu ally fined up, and crowds of people gathered in the streets as the hour ap pointed for the starting of the fancy dress procession drew near. The pro cession formed at the Market Square and marched to Henty Park by way of Percy, Julia and Bentinck streets. It was headed by the Portland Band and and the Naval Militia and Cadets, who mustered nearly a hundred strong. Then followed what everyone had come to see-the spectacular part of the pro cession--and it must be candidly ad mitted that it did not come up to ex pectations-there was not enough of it. It is said that one fool makes many, but it does not appear that one clown makes m...
