Destruction of Wattle Trees. Cr. Murray, at the Malvern Coun cil meeting on Monday, alleged that the wattle trees in Central Park, East Malvern, had been knocked about last Sunday. A large bough of one of the wattle trees had been ruthlessly torn off. The vandals had come from out side. He moved that an officer be put on to seize the intruders. Cr. E. I.

No later than -last year, on the Sunday I preceding Wattle Day, some one had driven up in a motor car and turned the car into one of his paddocks, and had taken wattle from his trees. Any man, said Cr. Carroll, whom he caught taking any wattle from his trees, he would take prompt action with.

In this match the tricolors ,ere very confident, as Essendon had three of their best men standing down As events turned out the latter team were unlucky not to win, as it Was only the poor form of their forwards tllat prevented them fromnt so doing. 1 In general play on the day's perform- I ance they were superior to tie sea siders. There was a strong breeze blowing towards the grandstand goal, and the side having the use of it had a distinct advantage. Essendon had the advantage of the wind in the first quarter, so St. Kilda strengthened their back line, and acted mainly, on the defensive. SMcNamara, posted back, was a tower ot strength, his marking being an especia- feature. Nevertheless, Essen don managed to score three goals be fore they changed over. Contrary to expectat.-ons, ...

Proposed Bowling Club. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 July 1914
Proposed Bowling Club. At the last meeting of the Caulfield Council, the petition of a large num ber of ratepayers for a bowling green reserve wase. dealt with. The rate payers asked for a site on Inkerman road, close to Hawthorn-road, but the council offered them a site on the south side near the tennis court. As this was most unsuitable for a bowl ing green, being about three feet be low the leyel .of Balaclava-road, the city of Cadlfield may have no bowling green for a long time. It would have beenworthy of the council to have made a bowling green the centreof tlieir beautification- scheme, -and the' bowiing.would liave been a double attraction for visitors to the park. The -: site on Baiaclai a-road might also be fornied into an ornamental lake in cdnnectiout iith: thIe same scheme of beautification, but the cost of raising the- ground :and filling in would be prohibitive ill .starting a bowling green.

Rounders. ARMADALE V. MALVERN-ROAD. At Union-street Park on Saturday last, Armadale met Malvern-road, and were defeated by 4 rounders. The teams being evenly matched, the game was a good one. There was very little aifference in the scores during the whole game, and the final result read. -Malvern-road;: 36 rounders; Arman dale, 32. The umpire, Miss D.

The teams were unevenly matched, and tihe -isitors kept well ahead. Spring-road had the advan tage in their fielding, and thus check ed Toorak's runs; All through, the game was uninteresting and one sided, as is shown by the final scores -70 to 25.
Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 July 1914
Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey. The wonderful Abbey is full of in teresting places. There is Henry VII. Chapel-one of the architectural glories of England. There is the long drawn aisle and fretted vault, so deli cate and graceful in proportion that one wonders: how it could have stood so secure for so long a time without any of the anxiety which the com paratively modern St. Paul's has caused. There is the Chapel of Ed ward the Confessor, which was used as a kind of robing-room during the august ceremony of the coronation of King George. There is, lastly, the high altar, before which is the theatre, where their majesties of Great Britain and Ireland are crowned. But for most travellers who visit Westminster, these are all eclipsed by Poets' Corner. It is prac tically the right transept. Though in other parts of the Abbey there are large and somewhat ugly sculptures in memory of famous men, in Poets' Corner there are only busts, medal lions, and inscriptions for the most part. It ...

Letting the Malvern Town Hall on Sundays [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 July 1914
Letting the Malvern Town Hail on Sundays. At Monday's Malvern Council meeting, _Cr.

Cr. Francis added that he knew the council would have to use a great deal of tact and discretion in granting the use of the hall on Sundays. He would protest against anything that was hot in keeping with the day. He thought the hall should be granted for anything that was in keeping with the day. He found no resolution in the council's books pro hibiting it. Any further applications would come before the hall committee. His belief was that any application from any recognised organisation con ducting services in connection with the Sabbath day should be granted. Cr. Holmes seconded the motion. Cr. Wilks moved as an amendment that no application fo...
