CRICKET. TRAFALGAR EAST v. MOE. (BY SPECTATOR). [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914
CRICKET. TRAFALGAR EAST v. MOE. ' (By Spectator). The above clubs met on the Moe ground on Saturday last. The visitors had first use of the wicket. H. Parke and R. Stewart made a good start, scoring 23 for the first wicket. The bowling of Baker and Johnston proved altogether too good for the rest of the batsmen, and the innings closed for the small score of 47 runs, R. Stewart  being the only batsmen to reach double figures. Baker [5 for 22] bowled really well, and bore out the opinion expressed by me some time ago—"That more use should be made of Baker as a bowler." Johnston secured the nice average of 4 for 8—a big improvement.on his two previous performances. The home team made a poor start, the first four wickets pro ducing only 26 runs. Jones and1 Stagg then made a good stand, putting on 31 for the fifth wicket, and later on Stagg and Johnston made things lively, hitting up 32 for the seventh wicket. The innings closed for 95. H. Parke bowled well for the visitors, securing...

DUGGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914
DUGGAN. The season is the driest on record. Grass is very scarce. The dairying season is almost over. The owners of dairy herds are drying their cows off, fearing a bad winter. Bush fires have been raging on the hills for the past two months. Mr Heale lost his hay-shed and hay, and Mr G. Williams an unoccupied house. No other damage has been reported, and the fires have done good rather than harm. A deputation waited on the Premier, on his recent visit to Neerim Junction, and asked for an unconditional grant for a bridge over the icy Creek—at Duggan. It was explained that the Buln Buln Shire Council did not. feel justified in contributing anything to wards the cost, as so far they had drawn no revenue from the. territory on the eastern side of the Icy Creek. In the absence of Mr Barnes, who had a prior engagement, Mr Mackey put the case for the settlers. Mr Watt asked that the particulars should be forwarded to Mr Barnes. On the re ceipt of the particulars, he promised to go with Mr...
DISTRICT NEWS. MOONDARRA. 28/3/14. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914
DISTRICT NEWS. (From Our . Own Correspondents). MOONDARRA. 28/3/14. Little or no growth was taking place owing to dry weather, but with the late rains things are be ginning to improve, although only about 80 or 90 points have fallen so far. A large number of cattle has been bought this year and driven away by dealers, and this has led people up Harris way to advocate the holding of periodical cattle sales at this centre. The advantages of being able to dispose of stock at a local sale-yard will be appreciated, I should imagine, by most farmers.. At a meeting of the local Progress Association, held recently, this sub ject was mooted by Mr Thomas, the secretary, and some of the down country salesmen are to be ap proached on the matter. Grass is short and dry, with the exception of paspalum, which has grown well till lately. The potatoes are suffering for want of moisture, and in some cases are very poor; others—the robust kinds—are standing the drought well. Mr Watson's place has just...

LONDON TRAFFIC The sixth annual report .of the Lon don Traffic Branch of the' '-l! Board of Trade, issued last week as a Blue Book (Cd. 7190), indicates (say "The Timesi" of Janaury 16) the magnitude of the problem confronting the traffic authori ties of London.

INVENTIONS OF 1913 [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 April 1914
INVENTIONS OF 1913 During the year just closing 30,000 applications have been made for patents in the United Kingdom, the total being practically the same as last year (says "The Daily News and Leader"). Aeronautics have once more attracted the attention of the ingenious, some five hundred of the applications dealing with flight. But locomotion on terra firma is still found in the foremost place, over 2000 applications having been filed for patents relating to rail ways and motor and other road vehi cles. More than one fortune has been built upon a simple idea—boot protectors are a case in point. There are no indica tions that the simple inventions of 1913 will produce a golden harvest, but there are many of great interest. One is a paper wardrobe, consisting of an airtight bag made of paper, in which wearing apparel may be enclosed. Since the invention of the campstool collapsible articles have been patented. This year tiie articles coming under this head include a collapsible meat...

TROUBADOUR PRINCE Prince Mirko, the second son of Kins Nicholas of Montenegro, -who arrived in London on Monday (says "The Daily Express" of January 7), gave an inter view to an "Express" representative yesterday. It will be remembered that the Prince won many laurels during the recent war, when he persisted in sharing the hardships of his soldiers, and nearly lost his life before the walls of Scutari. The ten months spent in the marshy region of the River Boyana, when Prince and soldiers were constantly in territory where the mud came up to their knees, has, however, told on the health of the Prince, who has been or dered to the Riviera by his medical ad viser. He leaves to-day on his way to the south of France, but will spend a few days in Paris on business. "This business is in connection witii my favorite pastime music," Prince Mirko said to the "Express" represen tative.

'ur,. "5 ... " THE R0SE4BF ROMANCE (By R. T. Chandler in "The West minster Gazette.") • It was one of those rare accom . plished first novels which seem to find their publisher and their public as easily as love finds its young dream. It appeared under the auspices ol' a Sne old firm, anonymously, though the lashioh is out of date, and the world seized upon it at once. "A true rose leaf romance, delicate as sea-spray in June, yet glittering and keen as dia mond dust," wrote the wise, austere critics of the reviews who have read all books in all languages. "You sim - ply must read it," said the feminine population to its friends, and even the great unpublished were not. aishamed to be seen reading it. It created something less than a furore, pernaps, but tar more than a succes d'estime. It was a book that politi cians were compelled to glance at while dressing for dinner. Heviewers, to be in the mode, had to allude to it; it was a sound topic for breaking the ice at dinner parties; o...

A Plea on behalf of the Printer! >, Lives of great men all remind us Honest men don't stand a chance ; The more we work there grow behind ub Bigger patches on our pants. On our pants once new and glossy, Now are stripes of different hue ; All because subscribers linger, And won't pay us what is due. Then let us all be up and doing, Send your mite, however small ; Or, when the cold of winter strikes us, We shall have no pants at all.
