THUROAT AFFECTIONS AND HOARSENESS.-All suffering from irritation of the throat and hoarseness will be agreeably surprised at the almost immediate relief afforded by the use of "Brown's Bronchial Troches." These famous "lozenges" are now sold by most respectable chemists in this country. People troubled with a "hacking cough," a "slight cold," or bronchial affections, cannot try them too soon, as similar troubles, if allowed to progress, result in serious Pulmonary and Asthmatic affections.

MALVERN V. HAWTHORN. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
MALVERN v. HAWTHORN. On their own ground, Malvern put up a wonderful performance on Satur day last, when they batted all the afternoon for a score of 391 runs for the loss of only two wickets. It was worth going a long way to see, as both HIoran and Thomson "put the wood on to some tune" in their re spective innings. included in Horan's 154 was a 6 and twenty-three fours, and in. Thomson's 159 not out were twenty-six fours, so they must have been both vigorous exhibitions. Hughes also made 50 not out in 42 minutes, when all the bowlers were more or less tired.
ST. KILDA v MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914

CRICKET. PRAHRAN v. NORTHCOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
UHICKET. PRAHRAN v. NORTHCOTE. The former team, on winning the toss, had no hesitation in batting on a beautiful Wicket. With two wickets down for 25, it seemed as if the Prahran batsmen were going to collapse in a manner that has been all too frequent with them this sea son. It happened otnerwise, as on Stephens and Healy becoming as sociated the bowling was collared, and they kept their wickets intact till drawing of stumps. The former made 149 and the latter 136, and although neither innings could be called dash ing, nevertheless, they were good all round exhibitions of batting.
Construction of Tram Cars. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
Construction of Tram Cars. How is it that Melbourne has be come dependent upon Adelaide for the construction of its electric tram cars ? Ever since it came into being the Prahran and Malvern Tramwvays Trust has been endeavoring to coax Melbourne firms (if there are any in that particular fine of business) to lender for the construction of cars, but all to no purpose. Meeting after meting of the Prahran Council Cr Naylor has stood up in his place in the north-east corner and bemoaned the fact-and Cr Naylor can " be moan" when he's in the humor-that no Victorians had shown any i'c'i nation to take on the work of tram car construction. Of course, so far as Melbourne is concerned, tram cars of the particular pattern of the Trust's electric cars may require machinery which, as the work is practically new to Melbourne, no Melbourne ffrm has yet installed. The conclusion is liable to be arrived at that Melbourne firms are so much occupiej with other work that they have perforce to allow th...

"WOLVES." [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
? WOLVES. Both men carried rifles. One, a gigantic figure of a man, and from his dress obviously the guide,- car-1 ried also a light 'axe and a long roll of birch bark shaped something like a trumpet. This was the sea son for moose-calling. Seating themselves with their backf. to . the trunk of a big water-ash, and in .such a position that they Lwere fairly hidden.,- \hile command .ing a free view. of all approaches to their ambush,, the. two made them 'selves . as comfortable as possible for a long. motionless wait. After some .ten or fifteen -minutts of a stillness which would straini the nerves of-any one not trained to it, Adam Moore,, Sthe, giant-.guide, lifted- the lbirch-bark; tube to h'is lips and soiunded through it the strange call of the'- cow moose, harsh and formless, -but- in -descrihably.: wild. and lonely-the very voice, as it seemed, of the untamed solitudes. It came lingeringly from the guide's cunning lips. -'Faith, Adam," murmured Rawson, "'"but you've got a fetc...
ADVICE TO BRIDEGROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
,ADVICE TO BRIDEGROOMS. While you are waiting at the altar for the bride don't clutch the air nervously with your hands. Neither should you allow your jaw to drop or your eyes to pro trude. The congragation can guage your feeling without these outward signs of inward nervousness. Do not imagine that every eye is fastened upon you. No one is the least interested in you. Unless you make yourself conspicuous by some awkwardness. the congregation will scarcely be aware of your presence. Don't try to smile cheerfully as you go down the aisle. You will only succeed in fixing a ghastly grin on your face. At the same time it is not neces sary to glue your eyes upon the doorway and thus show everyone your one desire to escape. Don't rush madly out of church out of time with the Wedding March and eight inches ahead of the bride. When receiving congratulations from friends don't try to make original remarks to them all. Don't try to conceal the fact that you are lately married whtn cn your wed...

GIRLS V. STOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
GIRLS V. STOKERS. ----+---- When you see a girl operating a typewriter, she does not appear to be doing very heavy physical la bour, as compared with the brawny indiVidual in a stokehold who is shovelling coal into a hungry fur nace. But this is one of the many instances where superficial appear ances are deceptive. The stoker probably handles a ton of coal per hour, or eight tons a day, plus the weight of his shovel: Adding the shovel to his 17,920 pounds of coal, he expends about 20,000 pounds of energy. Now, take the girl at the type writer. Each time she strikes a key she expends soinething over -three ounces of enirgy, or, :say,' one pound to the average .word. A good ope rator will -average -1,500 words an hour, or, in dlight hours, :12,000.words :-12,000 pounds I of energy.

A DANGEROUS DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 7 February 1914
A DANGEROUS DOCTOR.' Lately Mr. B. brought 'a suit against his medical attendant and alleged that the said doctor had per sisted in calling on .him personally after he was cured, fees for n;hi:h visits he now refused to .pay. Dr. F. denied this, and called in a nurse who attended the in-a'id to prove it. "Is it true," asked the Coirt, "that Dr. F. continued his visits when Mr. B. had no .necessity for them ?" "'Upon my word, sir," naively an swered the witness, "as long as I saw the doctor with Mr. B. I thought he was in considerable dan ger." 1829. One success is everything; two, no thing. Criticism is like the weather ; when it is favourable it is' jolly ; when had damnable. Every, failure breeds a critic. Quoted in the- A''Montreal Standard."
