VICTORIAN RACING Racing Unfit Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 7 February 1925
VICTORIAN RACING By "Observer." Racing Unlit Ilorses. The imposition of a fine of £5 on the trainer of Baiteryman, FI. Smith, for racing that horse in circumstances which involved cruelty, by the stew ards at Aspendale last week. reminds racegoers of the powers stewards p)Os sess in this regard, and at the satime time prompts the query as to why ac tion is not more often taken along these lines. It is rare that a meeting passes off in the metropolitan area but that some horse or other obviously unfit, either through internal disease or racing sore through external abra :,ions or injuries, is sent to the post by a hungry and callous owner or trainer, or both. H-lear what some of the jockeys have to say about the horses they are put astride. Of course, they only say it amnngst them selves. 'To many of them even the los ing mount is more than they dare dis (lain. Especially are unfit horses noticeable in races over jumps, where horses have completed lately in such a condition that were...

THE BOROUGH BUBBLE Will the Rose by Any Other Name Smell as Sweet? [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 7 February 1925
THE BOROUGH BUBBLE Will the Rose by Any Other Name Smell as Sweet ? There has again been commenced a movement in favour of the procla mation of Sunshine as a borough. The local progress association is respom sible for the present proposal, as it was for that in the past year. It looks at first glance to be a very progres sive movement on the part of Sun shine residents to attain the honour and emoluments of a borough. The word "status" apparently stands for much in society circles, but it may not cut much ice in practical affairs, and the increased status of a borough means that the presiding councillor is called mayor instead of president. Sometimes, especially in the case of mayors of cities, a bit of rabbit fur adorns the mayoral neck on official occasions. So much for the status. Boroughs, as a matter of fact, are limited as to area. They have to be no larger in area than nine square miles-5760 acres. Consequently Sun shine to be a borough would require to be very much trimmed d...

A COSTLY INTERFERENCE A local young man named Hands, who has been before the court pre viously, was charged with inciting to resist arrest and with assaulting Con stable Berthun. From the evidence of Constable Win. John Herthun a companion of Hands was intoxicated on Saturday evening, and he told him to go home.

In reldly to Mr. HFall, who appeared for defendant, Constable Berthun said any blows I-lands got on the way to the lock-up were due to his own vio lence. For the defence Mr. Hall pleaded for the young man, and asserted that he came into the argument through endeavouring to get a drunken com panion to go to his home. Hands. from the witndss stand, said he arrive...
CRICKET. SUNSHINE v. BRAYBROOK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925
CRICKET. SUNSHINE v. BRAYBROOK. Braybrook, winning the toss, opened their batting with A. Lee and J. Mid dlcton, R. Carrick and J. Stephenson being the bowlers. The batting from the start was very slow, *A. Lee, in particular, showing little inclination to hit. The first wicket fell at 29, Middleton being out to H. Carrick, who had relieved Stephenson. Lee did not last much longer, only three being added before he was caught. R. McCarney, who was next, showed the best batting of the day. He stayed at the wickets while 42 runs were made, his own total being 25. He was bowled with a beauty from A. McGrath. Very few of the others made much 6f a stand, E. Wills shap ing the best for a score of .nine. Al though the bowling all day was fairly good, more liberties could have been taken with it. The total 88 took about 21/2 hours to make. McGrath 2 for 7, J. Stephenson, junr., 3 fbor 21, H. Carrick 1 for 5, and J. Ellingsen 3 for 16 shared the wickets. Sunshine, with only 15 minutes to play...

MORE OBSCENE CASES Sunshine Becoming Notorious [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925
MORE OBSCENE CASES Sunshine Becoming Notorious George McPherson, a middle-aged man of the labouring type, pleaded guilty at Sunshine Police Court on Thursday on two charges of indecent behaviour in a railway carriage. The Bench consisted of Mr. G. McKay, J.P. (chairman), and Messrs. Pennell, J.P., and Andrew, J.P. Senior Cons table Carruthers, who prosecuted. in outlining the cases, said the first charge was taken under a section which favoured prisoner, as it was possible that the charge could be laid against him of gross indecency before a girl under 16 years. There were four young girls in the railway carriage at the time of the offence, but he would only call one as witness. A prepossessing young lady, a fitter by occupation, gave evidence to the ef fect that she resided in Footscray, and remembered Saturday morning last, 7th inst., when she hoarded the train bound for Sunshine.

THE TONGUE AS A HEALTH INDICATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925
THE TONGUE AS A HEALTH INDICAT'OR. Old-faslhioned doctors always look ed at the tongue (lr:~t, and although nowadays the tongue may be less eonsidered Ihan fornmerly, it is a very valuable aid by which to judge the health. "A sound mind in a sound body," quotes King.ley, but a sound tongue mnus.t be in a sound body. No one can Io:;.:iLly be in health who su ffcrs from that imos t disagreeable sylaptonl-.a toul tongue. The ton gue indicates the condition of the blood, the state of the nervous sys tern, and the fu::ctl.ions of nutrition and excretion. The tongue, in a word, speaks as plainly on health as on any other subject, and it will be wise to listen to what it has to tell us. The elongated and pointed tongue indicate; a condition of irri tation and determination of blood to the bowels. The full tongue, broac and thick, is evidence of want of action in the digestive tract, the dry, pinihed tongue expresses a want of tunctional activity in the bowels and digestive organs. If the t...

You will gain a re. putation for both charm and good looks.
