CRICKET. PRAHRAN V. NORTHCOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
UidCK2;1l'. PRAHRAN V. NORTHCOTE. This match was continued on Satur day last, the' former team having a good= lien on the- game when: they score d:308 runs for the loss of only three wickets on the first day. The wickets were rather on the soft side, so Prahran closed their inhings at once with the hope of getting North cote -out twice and scoring a win out right. Northcote at their first essay were ali out for 118 runs, and but for a timely' infiings for 68 by .C. Begg, they would have cut a very sorry. figure. Prahran nearly accomplished their task, as Northcote on going in a second time lost nine wickets for 93 runs, and just saved an innings defeat. N. Brown batted well for 36. Rogers and Blacklie divided the wickets for Prahran: The Toorak Park team won the match on the first innings by 190 runs.

Hughes made 56, F. Tormey 20, and J. Ellis 31 not out. Hawthorn made 86 and 66 runs for the loss of eight wickets, thus avert ing an innings defeat Pitts, seven wickets for 23 runs in the first innings and four wickets for 21 runs in the second innings, bowled exceedingly well for Malvern, who won the match on the first innings by 387 runs.

ST. lKILDA V. MELBOURNE. The latter club had a great pull on the seasiders in this match in having batted on a splendid wicket on the first Saturday.

St. Kilda at their first attempt only made 113 runs, the bowling of Ironmonger, the ex-Queens lander. being very deadly. lie secured 2ine wickets for 30 runs. M. Hotchin 22, and J. Souter 15, were the only batsmen to reach double figures, al though "Sundries" was responsible for no less a number than 26. At the second attempt St. Kilda made 89 runs for the loss of four wickets. Hotchin again made 22, and L. Ferguson 24 not out. Melbourne won by-217 runs.
This and That. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 14 February 1914
This and That. By L. A meeting of the leading gentle men of Chapel street was held under the clock tower on Friday night to discuss Cr Nay!or's scheme as to whether the Town Hall should or should not be shifted. Mr Dolittle was voted to the chair, but as there was no chair to sit upon Mr Dolittle, who is recrg nised amongst the fraternity as a man who can rise to any occasion, reclined gracefully up against a bluestone recess in the exterror of the old town hall. All present, taking the cue from the chairman, also re clined gracefully, or disgracefully- first. on one leg and than on the other. The chairman opened the meeting -with his pocket knife, by cutting up a pipeful of " nailrod," with which he filled his pipe, threw some light on the subject by striking a match, and broke the council's regu latiocs (the p lice force didn't happen to be looking) by copiously expectorating on to terra firma. These preliminaries concluded, the chairman proceeded. " Well, gene! men (he said) we a...

Aerial Flights. HAWKER'S FINE EXHIBITION AT CAULFIELD. Under the management of Mr A. Sculthorpe, Mr H. G. Hawk r, the young Australian aviator, gavr some fine exhibition flights on his Sopwih biplane at the Caulfield raceecu:se on Saturday. It was the first occa. sion that Melbourne people had had any experience of aerial navigation, and the admiration evoked was tense indeed. There were about 526,000 people present. Altogether the in trepid young aeronaut made three ascents, and the thorough com mand which he showed that he had over h s nachine made people marvel and wonder. The biplane rose, fell, curved or circled with a grace and ease that could not have been outdone by any champion of the feathered species of the air. IMr Hawker had intended to make more than the three flights, but was pre vented from doing so owing to the crowd encroaching on the 100 or so yards of track which the aeroplane has to cover at a rapid rate before rising. These same. encroachments must have also be...
