THE MATTERHORN. HURT AND HACKED BY TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 25 July 1914
THE MiATTERHORN. HURT AND HACKED BY TIME.. Our progress up the last slope was exceedingly slow, but it. was steady and continuous. At every step our leader trod the snow cautiously, seek ing some rugosity on .the rock be neath it. This, ho:ever, was rarely found, and in most cases he had to establish practicable attachments be tween the snow and the slope which bore it. No semblance of a slip oc curred in the case of any one of fis; had. a. slip occurred, I do not think the worst consequences could have liecn avoided. SWith steady perseverencc,, ditlicul Lies upon a mountain, as elsewhere, come to an end. We were finally able to pass from the face of the pyra mid to its rugged edge, feeling with coinfort that honest stienigth - and fair skill, which might have gone for little on the slope, were here mas ters of the situation.

ANTIQ UE C LOCKS. SSome interesting oparticulars con cerning:antiqlue clocks are contributed to the September "'Connoisseur" by Mr. George Cecil. England and the Continent are, it seems, rich in those treasures, . among them being the curiously complicated clock. at Lyous Cathedi·al, the Strasburg clock, the Isaac Harbrecht clock on view at the 3Britishl Miiseuin, those at the church of St Mary and the Dome church at Lubeck, and the wonderful seven teentli-century clock in the Grand Piazza, Venice. The Lyons clock was constructed in 159S, and was the work of Nicholas Lippius, of Basle, -and Nourison, a local:clockmaker ; it boasts seven figures, each of which appears in a niche once a week. :THE -STRASBURG AND VENICE OLOCKS.

Tramway Extension. DEPUTATION TO MALVERN COUN CIL. Two deputations waited upon the Malvern Council on Monday evening, in connection with requests for tram way extension. The request of the ratepayers who spoke first in support of the tramway extension they desired, asked the council to take the necessary steps to cause to be constructed an exten sion of the Wattle Tree-road tramway from its present terminus along Wattle Tree-road and lower Malvern road to the junction of the Waverley road, and an extension of the Waver ley-road tramway frotic its nresent terminus along Waverley.road to its junction with lower Malvern-road, with the view of linking up the two lines.

Levi, Smithwick, and Willis, J's.P., at the St. Kilda Court on Tuesday, Mrs, Diana Fisher, of Brighton, was charged with having driven a motor car on the St. Kilda road in a manner dangerous to the public on June 26.

A motor 'bus, to avoid Mrs Fisher's car, which was driven by herself, went to the side of the road.

The accident was caused through witness's car having to pull off to allow Mrs. Fisher's car to pass. He considered that Mrs. Fisher was driving at the rate of 25 miles an hour. Mr. Fay: Did y...
