COUNC1L NOTES, A late start was made at Monday night's council meeting, or rather at the open meetings of committee.

As the rate col lector was one of the officers in at tendance it may be taken for granted that portion of the business transac tad related to his department, .It is ho?(expet.ied that any prop'os.;:, tot relieving property owners of-any part of their rate liability because of re cent strains on their pockets was put forward. To the Finance committee, presid ed over by Cr. Harris, the treasurer reported that the receipts for the fortnight reached the modest sum of 1i 62/I1/8, which reduced the debit talance temporarily to o102/3/5. Accounts were passed for payment to the amount of £2249/5/1, which brought the debit balance up to £2351/8 6...

MISPLACED LENIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 October 1914
MIISPLA CED fINIEPNCY. That the leniency of the local bench is oft' times misplaced Is shown by the result of its action in allowing men substantially fined for betting in the Footecray.Park time to pay. One man fined £100 did pay £30 ofi but then, like the others, disappeared. The State lost over £200 by their going but after all it is possible that it is not all loss. There is one direction in which leniency should not be extended and that is to ward the street hoodlum who loses no opportunity..of annoying householders, insulting women as they pass, and 'as saulting youths smaller .than them selves. There are parties of these youths who spend a great deal of time at various street corners, what time they keep a close watch for the ap proach of the police, but the most troublesome of them all. la the gang that has its rendezvous at the corner of Buckley and Victoria streets. For months the local police have been re ceiving complajnts of the conduct of this collection of young fello...

Amongst those who decided to alt was Mrs R. M. Lane, who with the assist ance of the Miyoress of F1ootseray and a numlber of ladies andl gentlemen, promptly set to work.

SCIENCE & THE SOIL. (Analytical and Agricultural Chemist.) [No. 2.] [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 October 1914
SCIENGCE . THE SOIL. BY THOS MIOONEY. (Analytical and Agricultural Chemist.) [No. 2,1 - The soil bring a water reservoir one of its most important properties is its power of holding water. To estimate we must, know the pore space-that is the space which is occupied by the solid sod--and that available for occupancy by the liquid, This may be anything fromn '47?64 per cent to a5.95 per cent. Clay consisting of an aggregate of very fine particles has more pore space than sand which is coarser. If we take two glass tubes each closed at lower end by line silk gauze, fill one with fine soil, the other with coarse sand and place the silk closed ends In a dish of water, we note the comparative rise of water up through the fine soil. This is a property termed " Capillarity " We have familar instances of this in daily life when the end of a towel is allowed to touch the surface of water in a basin, .
