THE NEED OF FUNDS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 7 February 1914
THE NEED OF FUNDS, To the Editor, Sir, - Much disappointment has been expressed by the executive at. the small response thus ,fai' to the appeals on behalf of the fund, .This was due, the executive was convinced, to the great misapaprehension that existed in the publid'miind that no real need exists, and: that the suf ferers were people who were well able to bear their losses, whereas the facts are that many of the sufferers were struggling people who were purchasing their allotments on ex tended terms, and had erected what were the beginnings of permanent homes, and these, with all their household effeots, were totally de stroyed in the fire, leaving the.un. fortunate people without home or furniture. In many cases also this loss was entirely unrelieved by in surance, due, in some cases no doubt, to lack of foresight, bat in others to the unfinished condition of the dwell ings, and to the reluctance, probably of the Insurance Companies to cover these sea-side risks to a sufficient ...

A FAMOUSB. RUINED CITY, s a member of the expedition which was sent out in 1883 by the Committee of the Palestine Exploration Fund, Pro. fessor E. hull, writing in the Outlook, gives hin account of Petra, the deserted capital of Arabia Jetraen, some of whose buildings remain 2000 years after they were built. Mount Tor rises immediately above the city, and is recognised by nearly all writers as the sopulohuro of Aaron, thoe High Priest of Israot, We turned off, says Professor Hull, from the Arabah by a wide valley reaching into the heart of tho moun tains, and, through which ran a stream of pure water, with luxuriant bushes of oleander and several other plants and shrubs growing alongside.
