CRICKET. FOOTSCRAY v. BRUNSWICK [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 February 1914

CRICKET. Notes by "CoVER PorNT." FOOTSORAY v. BRUNSWICII Brunswick players and supporters came out to FIootscray last week, fully expecting to go home with a four-point wil to their credit, but had to be satisfied with three. Footscray opened with P. Glccson and A. Johan. son, to the bowling of M'Kenzle and O'Laughlin. The first few minutes were disastrous for the locals, as in the first over from M'Kenalice, Glecson was bowled for a "duck." J. Addison joined Johanson, and the latter, after making 4, was run out by a bad mis take by Addison-two for J. Ii. Smith was next, and started slowly. Runs came along quietly till the score reached 39, when Smitil was well caught out in the long-field by tlot der, after making 12. There was some comment atoutr int being out, as soume supporters not far from tlhe spot say that the catch was taken outside the playing arena, but the umpire did not trouole to unquire, lst giving his decision without hesitation -three for 39. L. Jonsson made his rea...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 28 February 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. T:' t(h" 1dit,,r of T IE A\rVEIiI's??s. Sir,-1 am pleased to see that the officers of' the Footscray City Council, or at least one of them, has awoke after lying dormant for a number of years. If he had been alive to his duties, every builder in Footscray would have been fined times out of number, as the sanitary arrangements provided have been in existence for all time. I am the more pleased to see that the builder, T. Brooks, was among the offenders, and fined, and rightly so to, as he was the direct cause of the awakening, and deserved all he got for having the audacity to say that the officers were too tired to do their duty. I believe, however, a dismissal would have been the result, but for the able manner in which Footscray's barrister pleaded for a conviction, with such disastrous re sults to the accused, which should deter him from reflecting on council's officers in future without the slightest justifica tion, according to one authority. But what a lot of e...

THE F.LO\\E1R GARDJEN. Flowers for Dry Situations. 1MauJu porsons have in their gardetns certain places where telo soil beconces very dry in sumtmer. and whereo ew tlowers thrive. There are a great many things that could be grown in theso places if the o\ners know what to plant. I have thereloro prepared a list of sonio plants that I lknow by experiouence will thrivo under these con. ditions, though, of course, one must not look for a luxuriant growth all through the hot summer such as can be got in more favored positions, where the depth of soil is greater. Thoro are dry situations which are exposed to tho full. sun, and others which are shadcd, such as under trees or on the shady sido of buildings, so that it is necessary to know what plants are most likely to do best in the particti lar spot before putting theom there. To ensuro success the best plan is to commence early, and work the ground thoroughly in the summer, ro. moving any undesirable trees or shrubs, and turning up tho ...

CRICKET. FOOTSCRAY V. WILLIAMSTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 March 1914

CRICKET. Notes by " COVER POINT." FOOTSCRAY V. WILLIAMSTOWN. Tho First Eleven commenced their last match of the season against Wil liamstown last Saturday, at Wiliams town. Footscray lost the tbss, and Williamstown opened with the Mills brothers, two batsmen who mako a lot of runs for them, to the bowling of Loloey and Christian. These two play ors did not trouble Footscray very much, as thoy wero both out with the score at 16. N. Mills, who mado 80 last match, was caught at leg by Christian off Lolrey. Footscray kept pegging away until at one timo the score stood at six for 107, but this would have been less if the chances given away wore not dropped. Watson who made 40 was missed throo timcs, once when he was 7. The eighth wicket was disastrous, Ford and Car pouter putting on 53 runs. The side was out at 5.20 for 173. Bowling: F. Lohroy throo for 51, II. Christian three for 34, W. Leeds two for 16, W. Mason two for 26, A. Johanson one for 45. Simmons again kept wickets splendidly,...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 March 1914

FOOTBALL. Notes by "hALW FORWARID" t'lhough it, is over oarly yet to dis cuss the prospects of the team to re present this district in the football field during the approaching season, the coming of the annual meeting next Monday evening justifies sonic re marks on the importance surrounding the task of selecting officers to inanage the club's affairs. Players are proma to imagino that success depencls on thIon alone. Nothing is further from the truth. A first-class team is ,no cessary, of course, but without judi cious managementlt a team selected from the best footballers in the Stato would probably fail dismally. There fore nlmnholrs, who have the power of selection in their hands have a duty devolving upon. them that requires that they should think deeply before casting their votes on Mondaor even ing.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 March 1914

Councillors took up a peculiar atti tude on Monday evening on the recom mendation that a foreman of works be appointed to take control of the men I doig the outdoor work of the munici pality, under the direction of the city surveyor. It has been admitted, time and again, that there is urgent need for a thorough re-organisation of the out door staff and of the existing methods, but when the opportunity arose to give practical effect to suggestions made, councillors were found entering all manner of petty excuses for not taking definite action. There is no doubt a foreman-of-works is needed, and that only a man of considerable ability will fill the bill. Unlike most municipal bodies the Footscray council does the bulk of its now work, its, scavenging, and its stone breaking, etc., by day labor.
