The Motor Bus Traflfic. Melbourne to St. Kilda and Prahran. Following Cable Tram Routes. Slowly but surely the streets of Melbourne and suburbs are being given over to motor buses as a means of transit for passengers. The public are now becoming quite accustomed to them, and take to t!.em like ducks would to water. There are some people, indeed, who have argued themselves into believing that they have no time for a cable tram now, and are not above turning up their noses thereat. The motor buses are saill further extending their lines of route the hackney carriage com mittee of the Melbourne City Coun cil wrote to the St. Kilda Council at its last meeting, stating that consi deration was being given to rouies for motor buses between the city and St. Kdda, and the views ot the council were invited to proposed bus stands in St. Ktlda as follows Stand for one bus on Esplanade, St. Kdlda.

CRICKET. Victoria v. Sth. Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 3 January 1914
URICKET. Victoria v. Sth. Australia. From almost time immemorial, so far as cricket history is concerned, the match Victoria v. New South Wales has been commenced on the Helbourne Cricket Ground on Box ing Day, but this year the South Australians took the New South Welshmen's place. The weather was all that could be desired on Boxing Day, when the match was commenced, and Mayne, who won the toss, had no hesitation about deci ing to bat first. With the splendid wicket provided long scores were expected, but the expectation was not realised. Both on Friday and Satrday the play was very dull, and the spectators did not fail to show their disgust at the l~feless cricket shown. South Auatralia occupied the wiokeis all day on Boxing Day for a ,core of 245; the only batsman to p'ease the critics was Moyes, who played bright, breezy cricket, and is one of the most promising young cricketers unearthed by South Aus tralia for some time. On Saturday it was painful to witness the Victorians scr...
Bowling. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 3 January 1914
Bowling. There is no rest for the bowler. During ordinary times in the season he plays hard. Then when the general mass of the people are esjoy tog holidays your bowler goes away business cares, and then plays bowls more enthusiastically and harder still. A team of Victorians went over to Tasmania, and South Australia sen, a team to Victoria. There have also been an interchange of vis ts between Victorian Metr.opolitan and Country clubts, and right good fe. lowship has prevailed everywhere. At whatever greens visitors arrived at they were f.ted and toasted, and, more than that, defeated at bowls as a solatium ! A t-am from Leongatha came down to St. Kilda. and were over whelmed with the kind and hospit ,ble welcome theyreceived. A good game of bowls was subsequently played, and at the oonclusion th. visitors were found to have been beaten by a few points. Leongatha Ilso had a game against the Ni.C.C. The same fate awaited them there. The visitors were all good sports, and they enjoy...
