YACHTING. HOBSON'S BAY CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 16 January 1915
YAcHTING. IIOBSON'S BAY CLUB. Tam Hobson's Bay club held its annual open race on Saturday. The entries, though not so numerous as last year, were good, and both start and finish of the race presented a fine eight to the large gathering of spectators. The course was a triangular one. starting from a buoy opposite the Gem pier, to the most easterly swinging buoy, thence round the St. KUda Bank Pile Light, baok to start ing line, three times round. In this course the boats have to start of with a lead, and the unsuitability of this practice was further demonstrated by a collision between Helen and Thera, who were among the first over the line, and which caused the retirement of the formor. Thera, who had her nose broken off by the board, quiekly hoisted another jib, and put up a marvellous performance by finishing five minutes before any of the other boate. The-wind was a nice, wholesall breeze from the south, with a bit of west in it, and all thi boats, with the exception of Fancy and...

ROMANCE OF PLANT LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 16 January 1915
ROMANCE OF PLANT LIFE, PLANTS hare their romance and history no less than in other branches of life. Sometimes it forms interesting and fascinating reading. At other times tragedy is involved, as in the procuring of orchids or the extraction of rubber. of which the public has had brought under its notice quite recently, the latter element in the Congo and Putumayo. Only the other day we had an instance, purely accidental, of a cat, enmeshed in some burrs at Rochester, being the unwitting cause of bringing to light what is thought to be a new species of plant. The story of the tobacco plant, the potato, tomato and the fuchsia, to men tion a few, are familiar examples in the botanical realm in the past. In fact, to the introduction of tobacco into Switzerland, opposition was so bitter that its prohibition was incorporated in the Ten Commandments. And Raleigh, when he introduced the potato into Ireland, unconsciously changed the fate of that country; in fadciher history is associatedin...
