SUNDAY ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 November 1914
SUNDAY ADDRESS. Mr Kenney, in his Sunday night ad. dress, called attention to the war and its possible results. Is it to develop into Arm inagedon? Evidently it is at least a prelim inary step in that direction, forced into existence by the evil passions of man to be used by the hand and purpose of Clod who rules all things, as an object lesson to teach the nations and people composing them to know the Lord their God. Most of the troubles that are recorded in the scriptures as occurring to the nations are stated to be brought upon them that they may know that the Lord is God. Therefore, said Mr Kenney, the nations and people so dealt with must be ignorant of God, as God wants them to know Him In other words astray from God, and powerful means must he used to waken them to their duty. In this matter let them, every individual of every nation, seek to know God and become one of His chosen ones in the appointed way according as they are instructed in the scriptures of truth, •

MAINTENANCE CASE. At Monday's court Ida May Northam sued her husband, John Northam, for maintenance; Mr P. Ridgeway appeared for complainant and Mr Secomb for defendant. Mr Ridgeway stated that the wife was claiming maintenance and while all were agreed that she was entitled to it no arrangement could be made to suit both sides as to how much she should get. He suggested that defendant be put in the box, exam ined as to his means, and the bench decide without any suggestions from either side. Mr Secomb and the bench thought the suggestion a good one and it was decided to act upon it. Defendant stated that he had two sources of employment, permanent appointment as usher at the Barkly theatre at IS/- per week and was employed casually by the Barkly theatre company on an average of two to two and a half days a week bill posting for which he received 7/- per day.

FOOTSCRAY v SUNBURY ASYLUM. Footscray club eleven paid a visit to Sun bury last Saturday to play the asylum on the beautiful ground overlooking the town. ship of Sunbury, a picturesque spot among the hills. The party included "Tom" Evans and the evergreen Charlic Grunden who, with his party, had driven out early and had a bit of big game shooting on the way. Owing, however, to the scarcity of bags big enough for the purpose he had to leave all the game behind. Arriving at Sunbury the party put up at Winter's Royal Hotel, where to fill in a bit of time, owing to a challenge by "Tom " Evans to the secretary as to who was the " George Gray " of the party, a game of billiards was played, Owing to the number of safety shots resorted to and the large size of the table, which the secretary said was too big to get around, the game instead of being rooo up, was cut down to 50, which was only finished after the marker had stated that it was his living and that time was the essence of the cont...
A FATAL BONFIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 November 1914
A FATAL 11OBOuIdRnE. With some idea of celebrating Guy Fawkes day a number of West Foots cray youths lighted it bonfire in South ampton street last Saturtlay afternoon with the regrettable result that a child named Ruby Maud Blake, aged three years and ten months, lost her young life.

In a few momnlents she was enveloped by flames; other children screamed for help and the parents of the little one rushed to the rescue. They succeeded insbeating out the blazing clothes, sustaining pain ful burns in so doing, and the badly in jured child was conveyed to the Chil dreis' Hospital where she sank and died a few hours after admission.

FIRE AT SUNSHINE. INADEQUATE WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 November 1914
FIRE AT SUNSHINE. INADEQUATE WATER SUPPLY. One of the drawbacks to Sunshine as a residential area, making the closely built portions of the district a veritable danger zone in case of fire, is the in adequncy of the water supply, especi ally in the summer months when water for fire extinction purposes is most likely to be needed. Illustrations of this have been given before. Another was provided last Sunday night when a three-roomed single-story dwelling in Cornwall road, Sunshine, owned and occupied by Mr E. M. Flatt, was' totally destroyed by fire. The outhreak was caused by the upsetting of a kerosene lamp, The fire brigade attended but owing to the poor water supply difficulty was experienced in coping with the flames. The nearest fire hydrant was 1100 feet distant from the house. After two hours strenuous work the flames were eventually extinguished, but' by that time little of value hadl escaped the flames. The house was insured in the Norwich Union for ,£80, and there was an ...

YARRAVILLE'S SPLENDID RECOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 November 1914
YARRAVILLE'S SPLENDID RECOVERY. A thatch between Yarraville and Middle Park, two teams regarded as likely to earn places in the final four, was commenced on a wet Saturday and Yarraville had the bad fortune to lose the toss. And when five of the best batsmen on the side were dismis sed for the small score of 46 runs the luck seemed awful. But the Yarraville team does not accept defeat until the last ball is bowled and the last wicket lost. I remark ed in this column last week ,'Yarraville will need to put up a fine tail end score and a splendid bowling performance to achieve victory," and they did both. It was won derful. The remaining batsmen played dtifficult bowling as if it were the softest of soft stuff; the fieldsmen became demoralis ed and could hardly step a ball and if was a dispirited Middle Park team that went to the wickets to answer a score of 140, when they thought the match had been made secure on the first day. And then Yarra villa's bowling did the rest. Middle Park...

BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 14 November 1914
BOWILING NOTES. The local green was in perfect order last Saturday for the meeting of the local A, team, with the crack St. Kilda team and played under such satisfactory conditions that the contest proved a first rate test of the capabilities of the locals as compared with a team of leading rank. As expected the result was a win for St. hilda. But it was by no means an overwhelming victory. It was instead a win due to greater even ness in the winning sixtcLn which enabled them to be up a few points in each rink, Forge's quartette was beaten by 2 points ; Griffiths' by 4, English's by 8, and Rogers' by Ii; a difference even tn the worst case that might have been made up had the skippers received solid support from every man. The club is foolish if it does not take a note of the lesson the contest affords. In bowling, unlike any other sport, there ap pears to be a delicacy about supplanting a player no matter how poor his form This is due, of course, to the toichiness of the players t...
