YARRAVILLE v WEST HAWTHORN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
YARRAVILLE v WEST I-IAWTHORN. The glorious uncertainity of the game was displayed in the Yarraville-West Haw thorn match just concluded when the locals who appeared to be in an impregnable position after the first day's play, were de feated by 8 wickets. On the opening day of the match Yarraville scored rz4. and had dismissed eight of their opponents for the small total ot 28, Goodwin securing 4 of the wickets for 8 runs. On resuming last Sat urday, however, things took a totally differ ent turn and owing to the fine batting dis play given by Hargreaves and C. Hendrie, who put on 78 for the eighth wicket, an un expected and brilliant victory was secured by West Hawthorn. The former played an excellent innings for 56 while Hendrie, though less brilliant in obtaining 3.1, served the side well in keeping an end up, and the innings closed for 127, or 13 ahead of Yarraville. Goodwin secured the remain ing 2 wickets at a cost of 49 runs and finished up with 6 for 37. The locals, in their ...
CRICKET. FOOTSCRAY v MALVERN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
CRICKET. Notes by "COVER POINT." FOOTSCRAY v MALVERN. The above match was concluded at the Western reserve on Saturday last and rc suited in a win for Malvern by 131 runs on the first innings. Although, practically, the game was concluded on the previous Saturday, a fair number of spectators were in attendance and enjoyed a fair after noon's cricket. Without detracting in any way from the merit of Malvern's win, it must be admitted the winning of the toss was a most important factor in the fortune of the game, However, it is all in the game, and what was the local's misfortune; to-day may be their good fortune to morrow. On a perfect wicket Malvern re sumed, but Dolamore, who had scored 32 not out on the previous day, was soon out to a catch by "Son" Smith oil Green. Jordan 17, caught Emmerson bowled O'Shannessy; Ellis 35 not out; Benton 6 not out, carried the score to 206 for 9 wickets when the innings was declared closed in the hope of dismissing Footscray for less than 131 and th...
BLINKING AND ITS CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
BLINKING AND ITS CURE. Opticians and oculists will, pc. haps, find some help in the follow ing paragraph, which bears on a habit quite common among persons of a sedcntary occupation: '"If you find yourself blinking your eyes rapidly without any cause, stop it at once, or it will grow into an incurable habit that will niake our eyesight fail comparatively early in life. "Natural blinking is necessary to ,clear and moisten the eye. The average nu il br"dfY"lihtiurt'il llns Is about twenty per minute. - But a nervous blinker will get in some thing like a couple of hundred in a minute in bad cases. The result of this is a big development of the eyelid muscles. It, besides, invol ves counter irrittition, which acts on the optic nerve, and renders the sight daily more 'eakc and irritable. "Once contract this habit, and you will find you cannot bear a strong light or read small type; and the .yes get worse and \ irse.

CHOLOROFORM AND ITS ADMINISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 November 1914
CHOLUOI?OORK . AND ITS ADMINIS'T'RATION. I'h , notion fostered by a hundred novels, that one has but to flourish a handkerchief wet with chloro form below the nose of any indivi dual to secure instant unconscious ness, has no basis in fact. Even with a free use of the drug it takes a matter of minutes to put a per son "over." And, as it is done professionally, the thing is a science. Sometimes the chloroform is dropped on a towel spread over the patient' face, sometimes upon a mask, but oftener air is pumped through the drug and is allowed to escape into a special apparatus which covers mouth and nose. And the administration proceeds ulpon a definite plan, beginning with the merest suspicion of thle vapour antd gradually increasing. T'he anaes thetist is alert and prepared for every danger. As far as possible the patient is fortified against risks and discomforts. Even the operat ing table is made so that, if need be, it may aid resuscitation. And during the whole pcriod of insensi ...

BUILDING REGULATIONS. COUNCIL'S CHAI GING AT. TITUDES. ' MORTISING PROVISO TO IRE ENFORCED. After'years ;of procrastination the local .council suddenly made up its mind thatcome what may they must have new building regulations. Therefore regulations calculated to meet the fancies of various faddists were quicldy framed and adopted. Aftergvards a deputation of practical builders waited on the council and pointed out that the iegulations in clude provisos that are entirely outside the limits of the conn cil's jurisdiction such as insist ing on oregon joists being used in weatherboard buildings and prohibit ing the use of hardwoods. As the former is imported and hardwoods are Australian-this requirement is as unpatriotic as it is foolish, and though admittedly wrong in law it carries the force of law until some unfortun ate builder tests the validity of the regulations in a higher court at con siderab?'expense, as by-laws cannot be questioned in courts of petty ses sions. The council a...

COUNCIL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 December 1914
CO/UNCIL, NUT'S. Councillors were in business-like mood on Monday evening when the meetings of the various committees were held and thanks to the fact that the usual lengthy list of unimportant correspondence was for once non existant they were able to gratify their unusual lust for work without aggravating waste of time. There was, with the exception of Cr. Fielding on sick leave, and Cr. Mc Donald, practically a full attendance the last to return to the fold being Cr. A. J. Pearce who looked none the worse for his vigorous, if un availing attack on the political strong hold of Chief Secretary John Murray, at \Varrnambool. In fact, if any thing, there was evidence of im provement and if the experience has had the effect of giving Footscray's youthful councillor a wider outlook on life it may not, perhaps, have been altogether a wasted period. Cr. Harris presided at the meet ing of the Finance commifce and received the treasurer's report, though far from cheering on the face of it, ...
To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 December 1914
To the Editor of Ti'i AIE\'rtslbRa. Sit,-May I, through the ntidiutl of your paper, plead for the thousands of lelgian destitute women and children. I have had several enquirtes lately as to whether secondhand clothing, clean and in good repair, would be acceptable for the Belgians; thinking the central depot still required such gifts I referred the ladies to thatdepot. I find, on enquiry, however, that they will only now accept new goods; so I hasten to ask the ever generous public if they have any women's and children's warm clothing or boots, clean and in good repair, I will be pleased to receive them, have them packed and forwarded to these unfortunate people, A lady who arrived by the "Aeneas '" on Friday last,, told me she saw 2ooo women and children in London the day before she sailed and the plight of the children particularly was heartbreaking Some were barefooted & clad only In singlets with old coats wrapped about them to try and protect them from the intense cold...

JOHN BU/LL A AlN. It is not always that persons wri ting to the local council furnish their own headings to their effusions bul one of the letters received by the local council on Monday eveninE was one bearing the title " Johr Bull Again." The writer is evid ently a believer in the adage " Swee are the uses of advertisement, " rec ognising that any matter so ttttrac tively titled was practically certair to secure a space in the columns c the local press. The letter, signet by John Bull, reads: I notice by the local papers that a dept lation re reconstruction of Barkly-stree has been on the mrovy again. I feel sul prtsed at the council entertaining such matter.

HORTICULTURAL SOCGIBTY The motor boat trips to the Burn ley Horticultural Gardens held by the above society are generally con sidered the most enjoyable of the season, and the one held last Satur day proved no exception to this rule. Although the weather in the early part of the morning did not look too promising, towards midday it cleared somewhat, and excepting for a cold wind the afternoon was line. About fifty members and friends of the society attended and spent a most enjoyable time. This garden, although small, always evokes admiration for its well kIept beds and borders. A fine lot of seedling Japanese- Iris and Glox enia.flowered Pentstemons made a beautiful show. Shrubs were very much in evidence. There, were also fine trellises of climbing roses, Hia watha and Dorothy Perkins. The party arrived home about 8 o'clock after a most enjoyable outing.
