Prahran Drainage. The Public Works Committee of the Prahran Council recommended "that the Victorian Railways Commissioners be informed that with regard to their proposal to construct a drain in Surrey-road, from the railway bridge to the main drain, it is the intention of the council to construct a relief drain along Surrey-road to Malvern road, and that instead of the Com missioners spending about £350 on tleir drain, it is suggested that tem porary provision be made for this drainage by taking it through the council's depot, at a cost of £70, on condition. that the Commissioners allow the council to tap their drain at Beatty-avenue for the Elm-grove division.

Yet only seven days after they journey to Victoria Park to play Collinzgwood, who, on the day's per formiance mnide them look like a team of juniors.*- : Right from the outset they triumphed, and as tar as scoring was concerned they never let the sea siders get, any'where near them. It was a very one-sided game all through. and the St. Kildasupporters, who were there in tiiousands, wee simnply dumb founded. .

Wattle Lodge, U.A.O.D., FEMALE BRANCH. The above lodge held a very successful social on Wednesday. July 22nd, in the Protestant Hall, Cecil Place, Prahran, the occasion being the 14th anniversary of the lodge.

Murphy had carried out the duties of M.C., which was no easy matter owing to the great crowd present. Sister Poppy Atkins pleased all as usual with her duties as pianiste. The secretary, Sister R.

Rounders. ARMADALE V. TOORAK. A good game was played at Union street Park last Saturday, betweei Armadale and Toorak schools. -:.Arma dale won right frdm the beginning ol the game, so it was not very exciting, but, nevertheless, both teams enjoyed the game. .Miss M1. Neatli umpired, and did so in an impartial manner. PUNT-ROAD V. SPRING-ROAD. The match resulted in another de feat for Punt-road, the team that were well at the top of the list. It seems that Spring-road is the better team, and are the means of pulling Punt road down lower in the list: Perhaps the defeat, 31 rounders to 10, was partly due to the losers playing with onegirl short.
