Cr Naylor's "Broadway." FROM PRAHRAN TO ST. KILDA. Some time ago, as will be well remembered, Cr Naylor placed a proposal before the Prahran Council for the making of a "Broadway' or thoroughfare from the intersection of High and Chapel streets, Prahran, to Fitzroy street, St. Kilda. Cr Naylor made a passing, and at the same time complimentary, reference to the sitbject at the meeting of the council prior to the holidays. He said that afriend of his who had recently returned from a tour of the world had informed him that the Broadway ias a magnificent idea. In New York a Broadway had been made through the centre of the oity..

A word About the xmas and New Year Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 3 January 1914

A Word About the Xmas and New Year Holidays. From all points of view the Xmas and New Year holidays passed off' very successfully. The weather at times was very mu~h on the warm side; but if it had been otherwise we might have been seized with a wrong impression that we weren't living in Australia. When in the month of November the weather was uncomf!ortably cool-when men and women found no need to buy summer " toggiery"--there were pessimists who said that drapers would be unable to unload their huge summer stocks; but a change has come o'er the scene., Summer has come. That it didn't intend to assert itself was, after all, only a delusion. "Such deluons'long _go have we been told, '" have happeneito -many or us,-- and most commonly when the mind has been disturbed and thrown out of gear by unwonted nircumstances." [t was the pessimists whose minds had been" thrown out of gear." It was all a delusion. Summer did comel The drapers did a roaring Irade in seasonable finery. Money neve...

Scott's Epitaph and Its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 3 January 1914

Scott's Epitaph and Its Origin. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January "Life," which is just to hand, is a photograph and an explana tion of the origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorial cross to Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that wlhen Captain Scott was leaving for the South Pole. Dr. Alexan der Leeper. Warden of Trinity College, Melbourne, gave ]limI as a memento a little volume of Browning, in which no. wrote thie concluding lines from Tennyson's Ulysses: "To strive, to seek, to iind, but not to yield." Tihe little volume was discovered in the tent with Captain Scott, and the mem bers of the search party, considering the lines a most appropriate epitaph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this excellent Inumllber are: "The Greatest Business on Earth," in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how science has robbed war of its romance; Mr. Carlyle Smythe's des cription o...

At the outset they had encountered a deal of prejudice, but it now seemed to be more and more generally recog nised that this was the ideal method of training. Since its inception some 6,000 ladies had enrolled-every year showing an increased enrollment, and they looked to 1914 to beat all records. They demanded a very high stan dard of effiaien.y, and that, perhaps, vas the reason why their students were exceptionally successful in obtaining good positions in the city. The College is un...
