MUSIC AT BALLARAT. FOOTSCRAY COMBINATION UNSUCCESSFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 October 1914
AlUS C AT IBALL A nAT. F()(OTSCRAY COMBINATION UNSTICCESSFUL. The wish of members of the Foot scray Municipal Band to try for the second time to gain honors at the South Street Competitions, was, thanks to the generosity of the local public, gratilied. The trip was made lastweek and the bandsmen spent a very pleas ant time, while the visit was not with out great. educational value. But be cause the promoters of the competitions grade the bands and not the individual players, thus permitting A grade men to compete in 13. and (C. contests, the locals had very small chance of success. This may be said for them; they played well; they marched well and the dis cipline was good, but they were oppos ed by bands which had the assistance of from 6 to 8 A grade players and which, having greater experience, had many advantages on their sides. The competitions are also having the effect of raising the standard of excellence. Three years ago Footscray band's per formance would probably have earn...

FOOTSGliAY FIRES. - ----- ------ BRIGAI)DE'S BUSY PERIOD. How close danger is to people is shown by the increase in the number of conflagrations occurring immediately upon the arrival of hot weather, indi cating_ that the cause is ever present, though in colder weather the result is not disastrous simply because the evolution of a blaze is not then so prompt as under more favorable conditions. With the arrival of the heat wave on yester day week local fire-fighters were at once in demand, and in the two follow ing days they had no less than six calls. At 12.31 on Friday the brigade was summoned to a lire at the rear of pre mises owned and occupied by Mrs Mar garet Daswson, at 88 Hallarat road. A large e.oaeh-house and stables, 80ft. x 28ft. was in flames and the contents, which included an Abbot buggy, spring cart, etc., uninsured, were demolished. The building was severely damaged.

GARDEN NOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 October 1914
iA RDENV .NOTES. By IMR ED, GIRAY. THE FLOWER GARDEN. All the tender annuals should now be sown. These include balsams, celosias, (or cockscombs), amaran thus, browallia, etc. Balsams re quire to be sown in seed pans or boxes and pricked out singly into boxes of rich soil. They should have plenty of water and liquid manure, the object being to grow them into strong, well rooted plants before transplanting into their permanent positions. Transplanting should be carefully done by lifting each plant with a good ball of earth and select a showery day for the work. If how ever, showery weather cannot be had the work must be done as carefully as possible in dry weather, the best time for transplanting will be after sundown, but the ground should have been prepared and watered several hours beforehand. It will then be in good order for the work. After the plants have been transferred make the grpund firm about the roots, give another watering, and some kind of shading that will break the s...

AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRIES ADDRESS BY MR J. E. FENTON, M.P. Mr J. E. Fenton, M.P., speaking at a gathering of workmen employed in the rope and twine making industry, at the Irene Hall, Footscray, on Tuesday evening, made reference to thd need for protection .in this industry.

Bags and sacks to the value of £1,865,2901 were also imported last year, and as this industry had been started it only needed some protection to give it a fillip. In respect to metal cordage the figures for 1912 were £122,112 worth and for 1913, £131,063. These requirements, Mr Fenton claimed, should also be supplied by Australian manufacture.
