No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
It is regrettable that up to the pre sent no member of the Footscray coun cil has realised the importance of mak ing an effort to secure a footbridge across the river below the Footscray Park. The suggested bridge would be primarily useful of course, to those who, from this side visit the Fleming ton racecourse and the show grounds of the Royal Agricultural Society. But it would also be of use all the year round as a short cut between Footscray and that portion of Flemington and Ascot Vale bordering on the river and for some distance beyond. To that extent it would increase Footscray's impor tance as a business centre and we have no doubt that the volume of traffic by that route would in time become so great as to be surprising to many not fully acquainted with the typography of the locality. To numbers of persons employed at the works of the Colonial Ammunition Company it would be es pecially convenient. And above all the erection of the footbridge would remove a serious .danger of...
BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
BO WLING NOTES. In high hopes after their victory over the City men the previous week Footscray's A. team met East Camberwell last Saturday But all hopes were shattered by the super ior play of the visitors. The gusty wind was very troublesome and made bowling something of a game of chance, and as East Camberwell seemed to either have the luck or suit themselves better to the condi tions they gained a substantial lead from the very commencement. Towarcd the closing stages the locals showed better form but were detcated by r.t points after a first rate contest 'English's four were the heroes of the afternoon and constituted the only rink with the scores in their favor, their majority being eight. Forge's quar tette, who have done remarkably well this season, were only a single deficient, Crow's were beaten by 8, and Griffith's rink, whtich needs strengthening, was r3 down. 'The B team played Preston at Preston and were substantially beaten. Dr Fuller ton, who had the valuable assista...

GARDEN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
CfARDEN NOTES. BY MR. ED. GRAY. For a large garden where a hardy plant is required, the English Laurel makes a good plant. Any soil or situation will suit it, and it also makes a fine hedge; but should not be clipped. Prune with the seccat. eurs, and never cut through a leaf. The Portugal Laurel is also a good shrub, not quite so strong in growth as the English. It requires about the same treatment, and is preferable to the English variety. The Laures. tinas, though so common, is one of the best for dry ground, and will thrive anywhere. This shrub shonld beclipped- once a year just after llowering, to induce it to grow conm pactly. Acacia.-This is a very large genus, and more suitable for large gardens. Where a good space is available I would recommend A. Baileyana (the Cootamundra wattle) a native of New South' Wales and very handsome when in flower. It ultimately grows to a height of about 2 feet, SBorodia Magestigma--This is the well known flowering shrub, and possibly a few hint...

RANDOM READINGS. WHERE CAMELS SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
RBANDOM READINGS, \VHERE CAMELS SMOKE. A curious fact is described in the paper "II Tabacco," quoted by a writer in the "Strand Magazine," regarding the taming of wild camels by the natives of Morocco. A three cornered piece of wood, 'through which a hole is drilled, is placed in the mouth of the camel, and a light ed cigar, very large and loosely rolled, is then inserted in the hole. As soon as the animal starts to draw it becomes very tame, and con tinues to inhale the smoke, and to emit it through its nose. As soon as the first cigar is finished, a new one must be put in its place, other wise the animal becomes furious and very stubborn, fixes its legs in the ground, and cannot be made to move until the cigar smokes again.

FOOTSCRAY THISTLE CLUB n" °`ýl'ft0anff'8nanne oP the Foot scray Scottish Thistle Club was held in Royal Hall and a pleasant time was spent by a very large attendance of patrons.
