CRICKET ESSENDON CRICKET CLUB. EASTER TOUR OTO WARUINAM BOOL and TERANG. 1914. By "Pagitus." At 4.22 p.m. on Good Friday eve the train steamed out of Spencer street, carrying 22 joyful and expectant tra vellers to'that bourno of comfort from whence all travellers are exceedingly sorry to return. Being brain-fagged t and weary, everybody was glad to have the'opportunity of a quiet rest. There were two objects in view: firstly, to play cricket; secondly, to seek solace zu the bracing air of the Western dis trlot. tha fair sex; and last but not leause; vere the followers of the sooth ing art of music.

U'I ONIS AND F'FOOTBALL. CLUBIS RESENT INTEIERENCE. Th? various executives of football clubs have been much exercised by the encroachment on their province by the Trades Hall authorities. Many of the i?ln in control of football are staunch unionists, but they describe the inter ference of the Trades Hall in sport as unwarranted, and "going too far." A president of one of thie clubs which has been affectd by recent actions of the T'Jrades Hall, has expressed himself very forcibly on the subject. He said -"I have been a member of a union for years, and I believe in the principle of unionism but I object to the inter ference of the unions, or their leaders, in matters which do not concern them. The objection to 'playing football matches on Eight Hours' Day is ridicu: lous. The day was granted as a public holiday for the workers, and they should be allowed to enjoy themselves oil their holiday as they please.

A fine burst round the top wing by North produced .a point; and a few minutes laterHaw kins, from a., mark, scored the 'first sixer.

ST. JOHN'S WORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 30 April 1914

ST. JOHN'S UWORT. The weed know as St. John's Wort (1iypericum perforatum) has become a greater nuisance in the Myrtleford Shire of Victoria than "Paterson's Curse".(Echium plantagineum) became in the Upper Murray districts of New South Wales. Unlike "Paterson's Curse," however, which sometimes has a low feeding value, it has no redeem ing virtues. Its spread illustrates the folly of ignoring introduced weeds. Several years ago it was found that it had secured a good hold on the land around the township of Bright. It. spread rapidly on the unoccupied Crowvn lands, and is now spreadin, down the country towards Beechworth It covers thousands of acres, and whrerever it goes chokes out other vegetation, so that the land is made uselcas for gra~zing )urposes. Experi mients were made to eradicate it, but the most successful methods (dressings with salt) cost over £5 per acre. The trouble has become so serious that the Victorian Minister for Agriculture in tendls going to the district to p...

A PLEA FOR THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 30 April 1914

A PLEA FUOLt THE MAGPIE. The inquiries being made as to fho effect on bird life of laying phosphor isel baits for rabbits has brought for ward many conflicting opinions, but a point on which all seem to be satis oid is that it results in the wholesale destruction of magpies. Everyone who has driven a poison-cairt or has ridden the boundary of a station can tell of a trail of poisoned magpies which have met their doom by picking up the pol lard baits. One man told the writer that he thought the poison-cart killed more birds than rabbits. The magpie is-?ea o.-Autralia'a most Iglorious avi faunal posaessioas.' It is a Liv ing reproof to those who com plain of the dulness of the Australian bush, which is only dull to those who have made no attempt to understand it.

SPIDERS AND THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 30 April 1914

-"'ultitude of spinners (spiders) is token ot much rain," says . rlar iar tlloloumew's book on natural history, published in the sixteenth century, but Luptou, in his "Notable Things, snereol some are wonderful, sonme strange, some pleasant, divers neces sary, a groat sort profitable, and many very precious," printed in Good Queen Bess' time, declared that "the great number of spiders do loreshow that tee Summer lollowing will be pestiler ous and.plaguy." More modern observers tell us that before stormy weather the spider draws in the threads of his web to the snurtest extent; when these are long the weather will be line. During rain the spider remains under cover; if it comes out to work, expect fine weather. Spiders falling out of .their webts in dicate rain. Spiders' webs glistening in the grass and on low scrub are a sign of fine weather.

NOTES BY THE WAY tl By "'Obrver.' " Thoe political Labor Conference, at their meeting this Easter passed a re- tl solution to the effect that all boarded out children should have the homes il they are in inspected by Government tl officials, instead of-by the members of sl a voluntary committee, and also that a no person who had a child boarded out si should have less paid for its mainten ane than 10s a week. This is a move L towards the management of the char- i, ities by the State. The Premier, Mr. n Waitt, evidently does not agree with the Government running the charities, and delivered himself to this effect at the opening of the new Elizabeth Fry I Retreat at South Yarra, on the 21st t instant. lie said that while the State could manage a good many things bet- t ter than groups of individuals, the c1 charities would be far better looked after by private" philanthropy. 3'r.
