It is a system we went formed of interested persons ready and eager to give succor to such that nead it, nzt obsarring religious differences to limit their mission of charity, but embracing all without religions distinction, The constitution and rules governing bsdies of tindred character may ifroperly be used in this case, amended where necessary to suit local conditions. I suggest some action to be taken, but just in what f...
PHILLIP ISLAND DROWNING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
PiLILLIP ISLAND DROWN ING ACCIDENT. Re the recent sad drowning accident at the Ocean Beach, Phillip Island, by which two valuable lives were lost, Mr George Paul writes to the Argus as follo,vs:-I shall esteem it a favour if you will permit me to supplement the telegram that appeared in '"The Argus" to-day regarding the Ocean Ueach tragedy at Phillip Island. I would especially like to point out that Ernest Noevillo was not swept into the sea, but lost his life in his heroic at tempt to save Miss Hossack, and I think such a noble act of self-sacrifice ought not to be passed over in silence, It appears that a big wave suddenly dashed in upon the rock, from which the party were fishing, and carried Miss Hossack into the sea. Young reville, who was fishing near her, immediately plunged in after her, and was bravely contending with the strong undercurrent and swirling sea, when the rest of the party, who were fishing about 50 yards away, became aware of the accident. His fathes and my so...

DANGEROUS COAST LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
DAeGEROUS UOAlST LINES." A writer in the "Argus" suggests that the recent accident at Couyes, Phillip Island, along with similar tragedies on our ocean beaches at the holiday season, appears to be mainly due to one causeo--the siluent approach of tidal waves, which steal in like panthers and carry away the unsus pecting visitors who venture to fish off the rocks. He also advises that local shire authorities should erect perman notices, warning visitors of the dangers of fishing on the outer rocks. We fur ther advise, as we did on previous occasions, that notice boards be erected along tihe beaches giving the hours of the ebb and flow tides, which often get the bathers into difficulties?'With an ebb tide and ian adverse wind the strong eat swimmer has to fight hard to regain thle shore without assistance. With the flow there is not nearly so much danger. This is noticeable around Port Phillip Bay. A few notice boards at the several watering places would-be a caution to the inexperien...

NAR NAR GOON. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
NAR NAR GOON. Nice springlike weather has been experienced here for the. past week. The country never looked better here at this time of the year than it does at the present time The potato and onion crops are growing splendidly and promise to yield exceedingly well. There is no trace of disease in either crops up to the present. Some early oats and other fodder crops are being sown to provide green feed for stock during the winter months. The land is in perfect order for working after the recent rains. Orchardists are getting very in different returns from their fruit crops this season owing to the dry season and very severe frosts last spring which caused havoc amongst the fruit trees. The apple crops appeared to suffer most. A ver, successful meeting of Potato Growers was held at Cora Lynn on last Friday night. .A branch of the Victorian Potato growers Association was formed, and the Cora Lynn farm ers are taking. this matter up very enthusiastically. It is to be hoped that Ir ac...

The Landlord Was Suspicious. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
The Landlord Was Suspicious. A tall, gaunt-looking man entered a-hotel not long ago and applied for a room. The price he was willing to pay entitled him to lodgings on the top floor of the house. Among his belongings the proprietor noticed a coll of rope. Upon being asked what the rope was for, the man replied: '?"That's a fire-escape. I always carry 4t with me, and In case of fire I let myself down from the window." "Yes," replied the landlord, strolck ing his chin reflectively, "seems like a pretty good ifdea; but guests with fire-escapes pay in advance at this hotel."

KOO-WEE-RUP SWAMP. DRAINAGBE SOHIE~ME.

GERMAN ADVANCE CHECKED BY A BELL. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
GERMAN ADVANCE CHECKED BY A BELL. There is one little episode in.the early history of this war which will remain for all time as a glorious ex ample of duty, and will appeal to the loyal feelings of every ringer in the British Isles. Briefly, it shows that the most gi gantic war the civilised world has ever known began by the simple ring ing of an old church bell. The.small Belgian town of Vise is situated on the banks of the River Mleuse. It is within three or four miles of the Dutch frontier (across which some 700 Vise fugitives hurried to the neighboring town of Maastritch), and is eight to nine miles north of Liege (since made famous by its defensive fortifications). Vise was invaded by a team of 150 motor-cars crowded by German infantry on the day was was declared. This ruse was'adopted in thie hope of obtaining possession of a valuable passage without firing a shot; but before an entry to the town could be made, the cure of the parish immediately alarmed the town by ringing hi...
SPRINGVALE MORTUARY TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
SPRING VALE MORTUARY TRAIN. A Correspondent Rev. W. - J. Carlton, Presbyterian minister South Melbourne, writes to the Argus as follows:-The train set apart to con vey mourners -and their friends to Springvale Cemetery is one ofthe most uncomfortable trains on any line made up; as it is, of obsolete carriages. - It is a positive torture to travel in it. I have had .occasion to accompany funerals on several occasions and to have to travel by this train is quite an infliction. Surely, when friends ar~ in trouble, and their feelings oppressed.by bereavement, the least that can be done for them, especially as they pay full fare for the journey, is -to convey, them in comparative comfort to fulfil- the last sad ritesfoj their departed.- Will the commis sioners kindly see-that this infliction is remedied as soon as possible, and they will receive the grateful thanks of the bereaved and their friends.
LAND OF DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
LAND OF DIAMONDS. Luederitz Bay, in German South West Africa, over which the Union Jack now flies, is a German posses sion that was well 'vorth securing. it is situated sonmie 200 miles north of tile Orange River, and is one of the principal ports. of the German terri tory. Luederitz Bay is practically the only German dependency in Africa suited to white colonisation. A dis covery of diamonds in the Luederitz Bay district in Jiuly, 1908, caused a rush of treasure-seekers. The stones, which resemble the Brazilian variety, are found mostly near the surface of the sandy soil, and are mainly of small size. The total yield up to the end of the year was'over 39,000 car ats, and during 1909 various compan ies were formed to exploit thie dia mondiferous area, the developmentof I which was hampered by the great scarcity of fresh water. The output of diamonds for the. year 1909 was valued at over £1,000,000, and anticipations of the growth of production have not been realised; but in 1912 the...

STHE PLANTIN MUSEUM. This Antwerp museum is unique in its way., Th'ere is nothing like it in all Europe. It consists of a multi-! tude of rooms-each of which con tains objects of art and beauty.

A Double Pleasure. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
A Double Pleasure. "The vice of intemperance," said tile lecturer, "is the bane of this country; it has ruined more homes, blighted more lives, and is respon sible for more crime than all other evils put together. "Can it be contended that the habit of drinking ever advances one's hap piness? What pleasure is there to be found in whisky?" At this question there was a slight commotion in the hall, and a myster ions individual arose and seemed aboui to speak. "Ah. sure," said the strange voice, "and isn't it a trate, isn't it a trate intirely to see two of your swate, purty faces instead of one?"
