FIRE AT ANGLISS'S. HUNDREDS OF BAGS DESTROYED [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 12 December 1914

I'Persons in Nicholson street, in the vicinity of the railway gates could not forbear to cheer about five o'clock last Saturday afternoon at the plucky act of a young man named James Dunbar as a result of which the four year old son of MrJames Gant, of Buckley street was rescued from a most precarious position.

Only property owners will be called upon to pay any thing and very few will have to pay more than X£2 per annum. For that they will have conveniences in the shape of roads and channels provided; will have the values of their respective properties increased; will find that building will be encouraged and above all will assist in providing work for men who badly need it in this time of war and drought. In the few hard cases that will inevitably arise the council should take steps to permit of payments being deferred for a time and thus all will be well.

On all sides promises of co operation have been forthcom ing.

There will be punch and judy shows, puppet shows and clowns, also children's races and merry-go-rounds to amuse the young folks; there will be music and sports on land and water, athletic displays and fancy dancing to entertain those of older growth, It is practically certa...

FREE TICKETS FOR CHILDREN. SUGGESTED PUBLIC SUBSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 12 December 1914
FREE TICKETS FOR CHIIL. DREN. SUGGESTED PUBLIC SUB SCRIPTION, A'suggestion has been made that contributions be invited to a fund to provide every school child in the dis trict with one admission ticket to the Citizens' Picnic Carnival and those responsible for it think that residents will be sufficiently liberal, to donate the amount required. It was at first proposed that sufficient money be collected to provide free tickets for those children whose parents could not afford to' purchase them but a moment's consideration showed this to be inadvisable, if it can be avoided, as the recipients under those condi tions would probably feel humili ated. A fund has therefore been opened and donations may be for warded to the mayor (Cr Bell) or any of the officers or committee, We are asked to point out that every donation so given will not only pro vide a good day's outing for the chil 'dren but will at the same time assist the distressed Belgians and also im prove Footscray's park.

BOWIVJING NOTES. There w or Ino pennant il ixtules last weak but Essendon was supposed to send 7 rinks to take part in a "friendcly" match. As usual with matches which come wilthin this category the result was a liasco, only three rinks putting in an appearance. They wvere pitted against II. rinks and won by a small margin.
