A very enjoyable tennis match was played at Upper Beacons field on Saturday afternoon last, between the Upper Beaconsfield and Berwick clubs. The after noon was very warm but the play was good, especially that of the home team. Some of the Berwick players appeared to be rather. "at sea " on the sand court, though the court was in splendid order. Beaconsfield is to be congratulated cn its posses sion of two excellent courts and its large membership. The match I resulted in a win for Beaconsfield by nine games. There will be a meeting of the committee of the Mornington Farmers' Society to-morrow afternioor to arrange for the de - partmental lectures for the year. As the President (Mr A.

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L-C.C. tramcars are "the latest thing". A six months' experiment with them on tramcars running from the Ham mersmlth depot is recommended by the itghways Committee of the LC.C. Tile machines are to'be fitted to the utpper "saloon" decks. The proposal comes from a Mr A. IH. Vincent, who is pre pared to pay a rent at the rate of £2/10/ per car each year. If the experiment is a success and the roof-covered cars over the tramway system generally are fitted with these boxes, the Highways Committee thinks that a revenue of nearly £400') would be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add. "the supply in the Council's tmmvars of cheap and wholesome chocolate would confer a considerable heneflt upon the passengers using the trum-veyt" particularly in the case of the all-night cars and the workmen's services. From automatlc machines for choco late (says "The Daily News") it seems but an easy and natural step t...

LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914

LONDON'S (iREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. London receives the Man from Over sea like a coy mahlcn being intro duced to her brother's pal (writes "A Visltlng Australian" in "The Daily Chronicle.") She's not going to take any risks. She holds him at arms length to Inspect him and watch him wriggle, and then. if he makes the right impression. she may find a cor dial place for him. The colonial does pretty well wher ever he goes (they tell me), because he has developed in him that utter lack of respect for respected tradl tions. He Is like the American com mercial traveller-he can be relied upon to "butt in." But the colonial usually does It very nicely. He ap proaches a situation circumspectly. and when the band begins to play. If he isn't right up alongside the stand ard-bearer or geting choice secrets from the drum-major, he is a most disappointing sort of colonial. Nevertheless, among the many men I have known In the Antipodes who have come to London, there have been quite a num...

The only correspondence dealt with was a letter from a Mel bourne entertainer, offering to supply amusements for sports day at a cost of .E3.
