Fire Cart Axle Breaks. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 10 April 1915
-Fire Cart Axle Breaks. Three firemen of the Port Mel bourne Brigade were driving rapidly in one of the horse-carts from the station on Tuesday morning along Nott Street, in connection wiilh cir cuit work that entailed their travel ling as swiftly as possible. As the conveyance was dashing over a pitched crossing the impact of the wheels against the stones caused the axle of the cart to break in the cen tre. and beneath the middle of the body of the vehicle. Both wheels cauted inwardly as the damaged axle let the body of the cart down on to the road. The horse was pulled up by the driver, and the other two men speedily made the call required. It was fortunate that the axle gave way where it did. Had the axle snapped near one of -the wheeis at the rate the cart was travelling, a danlgerous capsize would have oc curred, and the men in the convey ance might have been severely in jured.

TheGraham-street Methodist Church Was filled with a large congregation .?Snday night, March 28th, when an address was delivered by Mr. Oliver IHarris, a probationer in the Minis try. who has volunteered for service in the Ambulance Corps of the Aus tralian army for active service. The c?nause of our country, Mr. Harris said, was infinitely the cause of Christ. There had been no divorce between our country's cause and Christianity. It was n6ble to serve one's country, but nobler still when one's country's cause was righteous. In explanation of his own offer to serve at the front, the speaker said that one did not lightly turn aside from the Ministry of the Church, but to-day the world was in a state of crisis. and Christian ideals were menaced, hence his own action. War was not a permanent condition of mankind. Our Father never intend ed us to kill one another. In this war there was something foreign, and opposed to God's will. What was the cause?...
