THE CRICKET IN THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 30 April 1914
THE CitICElT IN TrILE OUSE. The coining of a cricket into a house is genlllyal regarded as a signl o1 gosu luck. if nuat is so, then there suould be a line time in store for us, lor criciets, enlivened by the recent rains, are now particularly InumerOUs. lIabre, the Lrench naturalist, in or delur to study the habits of crickets, bred them, an operation "requiring no h,.rticular preparations, but a little patience.' They were established in ordinary ilower-pots containiug a httle earth, ansud covered with a sheet of glass. Their diet consisted of leaves of lettuce.

THE BLUE-TONGUED LIZARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 30 April 1914
TllE BLUL1TONGUED LIZAtLD. To many people of nervous tempera imeit the sight of a hzard is as dis turbing as that of a snake, a sact to be regretted, for most lizards are harmless. ''Lie smaller kinds ciannot inlict a bite, and the larger ones will ot do so unlcss captured and teased. Lizards are useful creatures, feeding on insects mainly, the larger ones help ing to keep down snakes. Fights be tweena goauuas and snakes have been witnessed times without number, but the smaller blue-tongue is no less vall ant. It will readily attack a snake, and it is a pity that people who meet it generally mark their esteom with a stick. The blue-tongue suffers for its ungainly appearance, and for its bad manners in so frequently putting out its bright blue tongue, wich imakes , uusoplhisticated regard it as "dan gerous." It is quite a friendly crea ture, and in camp may become a pet. Instead of being killed, it should be enicouraged.

FINANCE COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 7 May 1914
FINANCE COMMITTEE. Cr. Cole, chairman of finance; pre sided. Cr. Roberts again brought up the advisability of requiring builders to lay earthenware pipes under all new houses, so -that the various service pipes, such as gas, water, etc., could be afterwards threaded without any serious cost.
