To Purchase Mechanical Chair for Invalid Sports Master. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 18 July 1914

To Purohase:Mechanical Chair for Invalid Sports Master. * At the meeting of the Prahran City Council on Monday evening, a communication was received from Messrs J. H. Furneaux and B. Arthur, joint hon. seas., acting on behalf of Malvern road school com mittee, asking for the patronage of the council to a benefit concert in the Town Hall in Sept. in aid of Mr J. George, who some years ago, as a result of a mining accident at Ben digo, was deprived of the use of his legs. At the time of the accident the people of Bendigo purchased him a mechanical chair. This was now worn out, and he had no means of purchasing another. Hence the concert. George (added the letter) is a cheerful soul, although a cripple, and spends much of his time in directing the sports of the school. On the motion of Cr Chambers, the patronage of the council was ac corded the concert, and the hope was expressed that councillors would show practical sympathy by purchas ing tickets,

He, in ap proaching the stream at a fast pace, was unable to check himself on the greasy ground, and, his feet slipping from under him when near the creek's banks, which are fairly steep at the spot, he slid over and down the side into the- muddy water.
