FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Times — 7 September 1909
, FOOTBALL. The match between All Saints' College .and King's School was played on the Sports Ground under beautiful weather conditions. The result was a win for King's School by 16 points to 3. Both sides played skilfully and manfully, the match being a pleasure to witness. The school's team was the heavier and therefore had an ad vantage. Some fine passing rushes were made by All Saints', and it was only by some good play that the school's backs prevented them frora malting a bigger score. At half-time the score was: iKng's School 6; All Saints', 3. In the second half play was much faster, and the visitors scored fairly quickly. Fine kicking was also a feature of the match.

REMEDY FOR DRUNKENNESS. Controvienay ovfeir . 'the true remedy of drunkenness, says tjie 'Melbourne Age', may be described, as never end ing. The totalT abstainer is undeni ably. right in his .contention that the evil would be -removed by the very drastic measures he approves. It thore' wore no spirituous liquors or lintoxio'antjs ;q£ -any kinuV^olitaiu^blle, we may safely assume there would be no drunkards. But then the 'if' ia one of great moment. The wav has ?yet to be shown of making it a posi tive certainty. No license, it is true, has .been declared in States in Ameri ca aud in districts in' New Zealand, but not evein the (Seqneftary of rhj Victorian Alliance will bo prepared to affirm that it has abolished) drinking in tihese places. It may have dimin ished the for.ee of temptation, for the means to do ill deeds makes ill deeds Gone, and public houses (dx-ubtiess do conduce to drunkenness. But while liuman nature remains as it is, the principle of compulsion is never like ly ...
