V.R.C. CARNIVAL. SIGHTSEERS IN THE PARK CUP RACE ATTRACTS RECORD CROWD. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 November 1914
V.R. C. CARNIVAL. SIGHTSEERS IN THE PARK CUP RACE ATTRACTS RECORD CROWD. " 'Twas just like a picnic, only better," was the verdict of a child after spending Cup afternoon in the Footscray Park and in that terse description of proceedings is summed up, in different language perhaps, the opinion of the whole crowd, estimat ed at over 0o,ooo persons who, from that point of vantage, viewed the Cup race and other equine events. SThe weather was perfect and though the dry spring had scorched practi cally every vestige of green off the area the picnic parties, the mothers and families, and those members of the male sex to whom the betting ring has no attraction found ample means for enjoying the outing. The merry-go-round, and the ocean-wave did such good business that other attractions of that character are sure to be in evidence in future while soft drink, ice-cream, fruit and re freshment stalls, in the open and in the lkiosk did a roaring trade;so much so that most of the enterprising ...

Only last week Cr Jenkins was, in absentia, granted three months exten sion of his leave of absence. His col leagues were therefore somewhat sur prised on Monday evening when the councillor named, having only that day returned to Victoria, walked into the council chamber. He received a cordial handshake and a few words of welcome and subsequently thanked councillors for granting him an extension of his leave. Being in England when the war broke out, ho explained, he did not know how things would turn or how long it might be before he could secure a return passage. Therefore he re solved not to take any chances and straightway wrote asking that his leave might be extendedl. Later, in the mayor's room, on the motion of the mayor (Cr Hell), the health of the re turned councillor was drunk. In the course of a brief resplonse Cr Jenkins said that as a worker and one who had been always dleeplly interested in the welfare of the worker, he had kept his eyes open to see how the industrial c...

GARDEN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 November 1914
GAR?DEN NOTES. By MsR ED. GRAY. Questions on all matters relating to horticulture, if addressed "Gar den," care of this office, will be an swered in later issue. THE FLOWER GARDEN. I have been asked to give a list of flowers that will succeed in a dry season, This is asoimewhat difficult matter, as very few flowers will thrive in such a season as we are now experiencing. The warm dtlays tempt us to sow and plant those flowers which are at their best dur ing summer, such as salvias, zinnias, marigolds, petumnias, etc., and under existing, circumstances that plan may be pursued with every pros pect of success. It dtoes not follow that the present conditions will continue throughliout the sumn mer. I have oftenii noticed that a dry spring is followed by a wet rummior, and it is to be hoped that such will be the case this season. So that if we plant only those flowers that suc ceed in dry weather we may find later on that the weather is unsuit. able for them, and the wisest plan is to g...
