THE BRIDGE OF SIGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 December 1914
T~ HE BRIDGE OF SIGHS. Speaking at Monday night's meet ing of the local council Cr Harris said he had been impressed with the necessity for a footbridge over the Maribyrnong river below the Foots cray Park and thought some effort should be made to secure one. The V.R.C., had placed its entrance gates to the flat on the river bank, in a direct line with Moore street. It was nearly a mile and a half from South Kensington station aind owing to the roundabout journey via Lynch's bridge, nearly as far from the Footscray station, whereas a footbridge at the spot would provide a short cut, barely half a mile from the Footscray station, and would be a great public convenience. To save the long journey hundreds of people crossed the river in the neigh bourhood in boats and some day there would be a serious accident and loss of life because of the rush to get aboard them at the close of the day's racing. As the footbridge would be mainly used by patrons of the race course he moved that the V....
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 December 1914
That Footscray has spread out con siderably in recent years and is now practically twice as large as it was a few years ago is a well known fact Thec population has also increased pro rata but the number of letter carriers form ing the staff at the local post office has increased practically not at all. It follows therefore that the letter carriers have had a considerable amount of ex tra work thrown on their overburdened shoulders, so much so indeed as to be almost a public scandal. The local council has taken up many less impor tant matters and councillors would as suredly be doing a public service by calling the attention of the Postal authorities to the need for an augmen ted staff. Christmas is drawing near and the least the council can do is to forward a request that additional letter carriers be attached to the local offices to relieve the strain. Many residents of Footscray will re member the old prison hulk Success that lay for many years near the Wil liamstown steam ferry ...

GARDEN NOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 December 1914
GARDEN NOTES. BY MRi. ED. GRAY. THE FLOWER GARDEN. A't this season of the year rough winds are prevalent, and unless gar deners arc prepared their plants will be sure to suffer. It is disappointing to see choice plants blown about by the wind just as they are coming into bloom. To prevent this it is neces sary to support, by means of stakes, those plants which seem to be unable to stand alone. Stakes are a neces sary evil in the garden, and when they have to be used they should be made as inconspicuous as possible. The size of the stake should he in proportion to the plants, and when they are being driven in care should be taken that the plants are not in jured in any way. Dahlias for autumn blooming should now be planted, and the planting out of annuals should be finished as soon as possible. It is now a good time to sow seeds of perennials for bloom ing next spring, such as wallflowers, Brompton stocks, hollyhocks, etc. They will require to be sown in shady beds of light soil and ...

Goble preached in the evening. Good coji gregations were the order of the day, and at the evening service numbers failed to get admission. The chil dren had been efficiently, trained under the baton of Mr A. Graham, and Miss George proved a capable organist. The singing of the chil dren was of a useful as well as'of an appreciative character, being taken from the school hymnary, and had the assistance of a small orchestra.

GERMANS ON PAROLE GOVERNMENT PAYMENT OF 21 PER WEEK. WARM WORDS BY COUNCILLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 December 1914
GERMANS .ON PAROLE GOVERNMENT PAYMENT OF £1 PER WEEK, WARM WORDS BY COUNCILLORS. There was a lull in proceedings at Monday night's council, meeting and it looked as if the business was likely to terminate somewhat earlier than usual. But it was the lull that precedes a storm or at least a stormy attack on the treats ment meted out to German prisoners on parole in Australia. Cr. Jenkins s et the discussion in motion. During his recent visit to the old land he saw thousands of Belgian refugees seeking refuge in England; saw evidences of the brutality to which they had been sub jected by the pursuing Germans; heard heart-rending stories of the methods employed on Britishers unfortunate enough to be interned in Germany on the outbreak of war, and consequently his forcefulness of speech, almost amounting to bitterness, is perhaps ex cusable. Cr. Jenkins opened by moving that a letter be sent from the council to the Minister of Defence asking him if the reports appearing in the press that...
