Some time ago the Port Melboure council decided upon .a course that could be emunlated by other and weal thier municipalities with. advantage to the residents and credit to them selves. It was decided to ar range for a series of winter lectures on subjects that would enlighten the many and place at their disposal a fund of. use ful information. There were poor attendances last season, and they have been, if anything, poorer dur ing the present winter. It is unfor tunate, and something of a reflection on the capacity of residents to ap preciate the advantages thdt are de rivable from such a course; and this especinlly, when the fact is taken into consideration-as mentioned by Cr. Sinclair at the meeting of the council on Tuesdiiy eveniztg-that. the lecturers have devoted a goodly portion of their lives to the. acquisi tion of special branches of know ledge which they bare beefi iniduced to. present in popul,-ii forni ithout? pecuniary reward "...

"INSECTS AND DISEdASE." The Deadly House Fly. Instructive Lecture By Dr. Bull. An instructive lecture, couched for the most part in homely terms for the benefit of a mixed audience, was de livered before a large and apprecia tive attendance at the Town Hall, on Thursday evening, by Dr. R. J. Bull, the eminent bacteriologist of the Melbourne University. The Mayor (Cr. A. L. Page) presided. The lecturer began by describing the nature and distribution of micro organisms, or "microbes," as they are familiarly called, and showed thalt although infinitely tiny and only visible urider powerful micrq scores, they were yet endowed with a vital activity unconceivably great er than any other form of liviiig matter in the vegetable or animal kingdom. This characteristic was exemplified in their truly remark able powers of prolification or multi plication; so much so, in fact, that in the course of a single night one microbe could give rise to 48 gen erations representing ' total pfogeny of 30 b...

FOOTBALL. Brighton (12.12) beat Ports (8.13). [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 1 August 1914

FOOTBALL. Brighton (12.12) beat Ports (8.13). (By "Rover.") In anticipation of seeing a game which would be willing, a fair num ber were present on the Brighton ground last week. The game, taken on the whole, was nothing out of the ordinary--excepting on a couple of occasions, when a scuffle occurred; and in justice to the Ports it should be mentioned that provocation did not come from their side. The play in the first quarter was of a very even description, first one side having the ball forward, and then the other, and the scores at the first bell were - Brighton, 4-0; Ports, 3-2. The second quarter was all in fav our of Brighton, who, crowding on the ball, seemed to crush the Ports' small players completely, and suc c.eded in adding 5-4 to Ports' 1-2, and the scores at half-time were - Brighton, 9-4: Ports, 4-4. Ports' players in the third quar ter made the game more open, and as a consequence had the better of the deal, and had it not been for faulty iclking slould li?ve :indeth...
