Municipal Destructor. SELECTED SITE OBJECTED TO. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Municipal Destructor SELECTED SITE OBJECTED TO. For many months past the St Kilda, Brighton and Caulfield coun. oiis have been working in unison for the erection of a joint destructor. A site was chosen on Crown land near the State school at Elsternwic, Against this emphatic protests were raised by residents oi the district and parents of the children attending the school. The Cabinet, whi,h had p eviously acquiesced in the stlected site, again gave consideration to the matter on Monday, and decided to revoke its decision, and to inform the councils that the site selected could not be made available. The Educa tion Department had put forward a claim for the ground for school pur. po:es. Between the Public Works De. partment, the Education Depart. ment, and the Health Department not to speak of the objections raised locally, the joint municipal commit. te have had an awkward time. just as they thought they had achieved success in finally selecting a site, so their anticipations have ...

Football. ST. KILDA V. CARLTON. There was an enorlmous crowd estimated at 22,000-at the St. Kilda Cricket Ground on Saturday last to witness the above match. In the match early in the season, St. Kilda just managed to win tile match in the last quarter, but Carlton is a wonder fully improved team since then. It was a glorious day for football, al though there was a strong breeze blowing towards the Fitzroy-street goal, whlich materially assisted the side which had tile advantage of it. McNamara, the St. Kilda captain, suf fered from a bad ankle, and only de cided to play at the last moment. Carlton had the advantage of the wind in the first quarter, but St. Kilda opened the game with a dash, but it was a long time before they got within fair range of the Carlton goal. For a wonder, Lever's kicking off from goal was distinctly poor, which gave his opponents? two' goals. Carlton inade good use otf their opportunities in this quarter,: and scoled 4 goals 5 behilid, : hcllilst: St ?Iild...

Oh ! That Site ! [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Oh! That Site! Still another discussion took place at the Prahran Council meeting on Monday evening ;:i it ,; Town Hall site question. It is an obstinate piece of business. Seems as if it is never going to be settled. As to the proposal to take a poll of the rate payers, a. majority of the Council is in favor thereof, but for certain reasons the whole of this majority cannot arrive at the conclusion to take the pill. The objection is that there is nothing authentic regarding the financial aspecc to place before the ratepayers. To a great extent that argument errs on the side of weak ness. Cr Naylor, as father of the new si:e movement, has placed esti mates before the council. These have emanated from what is under stood to be a reliable source. It is the duty, then, of those who are opposed to Or Naylor's figures to bring along their own. Granted that the Council is split into two camps on the Town Hall site ques tion, there is nothing invidious about that. It is but natural. In the...

De fendant said he did not notice the church. A fine of 20/- was imposed. Thomas Baxter, West Melbourne, driver of a motor car, was fined 20/ for a similar offence. Dr. R. C. Brown, St. Kilda, was charged with having driven a motor car along Barkly-street, without a rear light, on the evening of June 7. Dr. Brown wrote a letter to the court stating that the lamp (an electric one) was defective, because a thief had torn away the connections a few days be fore.

BETTER LET HIM BRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
BETITEU LET HIMA BRAY. A new story about Mr. .oosevelt is current in New .York. One of the editors of the "Out look" was outlining to Mr. IKoose velt an article that he proposed to write in condemnation of a states man who had just made a very foolish oration.

Amusements. THE PLAZA. SKATING AND DANCING. Skating and dancing is freely in. dulged with much enjoyment by the many patrons of the transformed Skating Rink at South Yarra. Trains, trams., etc., all unload numbers in close proximity to the Plaza, situated as it is just outside the station. Good music is provided, and even to those who neither dance or skate, much en joyment can be had by looking on ang walking round this tastefully de corated and only place in Melbourne with the two floors under one roof. PALAIS DE DANSE, Hundreds of merry lads and lassies and older members of the community, too, merrily step to the sweet music of Di Gilio's orchestra at the Palais de Danse on the Lower Esplanade every evening. Of the decorations much has been said, but none too muclh, as it would be hard to picture anything in its own special way really superior. Increased accommodation has also been provided, including re freshment booths, cloak rooms, etc. THE LYRIC THEATRE, ST. KILDA. Dreary win...
How Fish Sleep With Both Eyes Open. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
How Fish Sleep With Both Eyes Open. It wued to be thought that f11 never sleep. because their eyes are never closed. In fact, scientists at one time believed that the exist ence of whales uand other large lish depended upon their sleeplessness nun that if by any chance they dozed off they would perish by drowning. Recent discoveries show that th lse notions are entirely arron eous. All fish sleep at more or less regular r intervals' Ibut they do so withoiLt c:losing their-'eyes, and theii s lumber. ·ns a .rule is lighter and moreieasuily- disturbed than that of any other. living things. In studying. how0 fish sleep they should be observed under normal conditions; and n iMot .when I stupefied by drugs, says .Professor Louis Schulze, of Berlin.; : This is proved by the fact that.if too nmuch of a diig is itdmidiistered'l'the fish swim sidewise showing thiat they hav: lost their sense of bhlance. In the case of human beings - we do not dream of comparing their conditi?n while drugged w...

Chapel Street Station. WHAT MR. MACKINNON SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Chapel Street Station. WHAT MR. MACKINNON SAYS. It is understood (according to a published statement) that the Minister for Railways (Mr. Mackinnon) has de termined that another station shall be erected near the Chapel-street railway bridge, on the line between South Yarra and Hawksburn. Replying a few weeks ago to a deputation which asked that a station be erected at the intersection of Chapel and Arthur streets, Mr. Mackinnon announced that lie favoured the construction of the station because he believed it to be a public necessity. Despite the objection of the commissioners to the establishment of a station so near Hawksburn and South Yarra, he thought that another stoppage was justified under the electrification scheme, because electric trains were able to gain speed much faster than steam trains. Mr. Mackinnon also in timated that lie had in his possession a new design, from which he had gained the impression that the cost of the station would not be very great. Referring to th...
