INTELLECT STILL CLEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 10 January 1914
INTELLECT STILL CLEAR. The storm was over, but the doctor was busy with the sufferers. Among them was a young woman who had been hurled against a stone wall, and who was still unconscious. "I have witnessed the effects of many a cyclone," said the physician to one of his assistants, as he bent over the woman. Before he could say more, her eyes opened, and she spoke—into space. "T'he cyclone is a rotary storm of widely-extended circuit," she mur mured. "Its centre is frequently many miles from its outer limit. This storm was a tornado, and —" Here she became unconscious again. "From Boston?" whispered the at- tendant, and the physician nodded.

BOWLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 January 1914
BOWLING NOTES. It must have conic as a shock to Footscray bowlers to find the journal oublishle. ex clusively for that sport recommending them in future years to rcecognise their lack of abilily, and instead of entering teams both for the A and B sections, to enter for the C or third grade section, Having proved themselves good enough for that the writer says, they could go up to the It eec tion. \Vhile the advice seems a severe reftlec tion upon the capacity of lootscray bowlers I -and was read with snorts of indignation, no doubt-the melancltholy fact remains that neither of the local team hashas yet won a match this season. This, in itself, appears to show that they have Ilown too high, and must convince these capable of btin conl vinccd that some alteration is necessary. For Footscray to be heaten Saturday after Saturday is not creditable to the district, and while they continue to enter a team in the A section there is no liklihood to be muchlt improvement. The secret is that F...

FOOTSCRAY DRILL HALL. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 January 1914
FOOTSC.JiC' Y DRZILL H.1LL. T:, the Editor of Tue Anvi)\r'IISE&lt;. S-Sir;--I notice that the Footscray Drill Hall is to be officially opened on Saturday next (17th inst.) and this leads me to ask a few questions on the subject of drill halls. In the first place is the building, to be open ed as stated, the outcome of the big effort made to raise funds for a drill hell some time back ? I ave a clear recollection of a big effort being made; of one firm giving £50; of a local friendly society giving £io ; of a tattoo being held at the Western reserve, and a very fine affair tdo; of a grand ball being. held at \Villiams town; of picture nights being organis ed; of great quantities of printed matter advertising various functions being circulated; of elaborately paint ed signs gracing the advertising hoardings; of evidences of money be ing spent like water. If I am not mistaken the Government afterwards decided to erect the desired drill hall and the local council provided the si...

2 FATALITY AT SUNSHIAE. BUSINESS MAN KILLED. RUN DOWN IN VEHICLE BY BENDIGO EXPRESS. One of the best known business men in the township of Sunshine, in the person of William Charles Bat ten, ham and beef merchant, met his death shortly after mid-day on Sat urday last under tragic circum stances. Consequent upon the scat tered character of the residential por tion of the district deceased did a good deal of his business by visits to customers and in the course of his Saturday round had occasion to pass over the cattle-pit crossing on the Bendigo line, leading to Anderson's road from King Edward avenue. Perhaps because he had previously crossed at that point scoles of times before Mr Batten neglected to take the precaution of looking out for on coming trains. Instead he drove straight ahead with the result that the covered in waggonette in which he was seated was crashed into by the 12.15 p.m., down 13endigo express which, at that point, usually dashes through at from forty inles per ...
