NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
NOTES. Frank Simcocks played a strong game for Princes Park. His driving was very effective. Misses Rice excelled t:hcmsel-e\ s again. This combination will be very hard to beat in the coming Brunswick v. Coburg tournament. Misses Martyn and Donnegan, for Brunswick Methodists. played an ex cellent game, and they are a tough proposition to come up against. The Princes Paltk Tennis Club are holding their annual tournaments next month, and as Messrs. Alcock Co. Ltd. have kindly donated a trophy to tho club for the championship, thlero will no doubt be great interest taken in same, and which should produce some good tennis. A Greek was busy at his counter opening oysters, when his daughter came in. 'Father, why can't I marry iAntony h' 'You shall not disgracer de family. He sella da oyster from offada truck,'.

Soul Can be Stolen in Papuans' Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Soul Can be Stolen in Papuans' Lands. Some strange ideas exist among the Kiwai Papuans, who confound the word 'soul .with that of ia:-sha dow i?eflection,, said .Dr. Landtimai in his paper reid .:to tlhe British As sociatioil. -:::- - A soui. could be stolen by an ill witiher touching the man's shadow at night with a piece of hollow bam::oo. If the bamboo was plug ged the soul was kept in captivity. On account of this danger any per son going out at night carried his torch high so as to keep his sha dow as smlall as possible. Many' natives believed that tihe seat of the soul was the eyes, others that it was the back; so that a man must not be hit there else his soul might jump out. When a man woke feeling tired it was because his soul had been wan derlig, and had not yet returned fron, its travels. It was considered that he should lie still for some time, which was very handy for lazy persons. Souls of sick persons were in dan-. ger of being carried away. There fore a sick man was n...

Curious Pagan Relic. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Curious Pagan Relic. ------+--- One of the most curious relics of Itagani'su remainiug in a Christian cou!ntry is the gigantic black stone figure of ta woman which is to be seen in a forest of the District of 1orh.ihan, in Brittany. It is known as the "Black Venus," but probably dates farther back than the timte w\hen the Gtreeks all a odlllalns \or .hiipci that goddess. Antiluaries assert that this fiegure 1,elongs to the age of the serpent \\urshi lpers, one of whose sulbterraneau temples is in the neighlbourhood. This would make the figure far older than the Christian era. The statue is that of a huge. unlcoulth woman, with a sullen, angry countenance, her formn uenveloped iu a loose mantle. The superstitious Uretons have always worshipped tihe ftigure, asserting that it has power over the weather, and the crops. If the idol is neg lected they declare that the grain dies ou tile ear, andl is the anger of the "black womlan" over 3Morlihan. TI'o clean brass that Ihas been ex posed ...

The Easter Bazaar. GYMKHANA AT "AULD REEKIE." On the invitation of Mr. and 3Mrs. Alexander Sturrock, a large number of ladies and gentlemen assembled at a "'Gymkbana" on the fine grounds at "Auld Reekie," Royal Parade, on Sa turday afternoon last. to assist the stall organised by the Mayor and Mavoress of Brunswick at the Druids' Easter Fair, to raise funds for the Austin Hospital and the Kindergar ten movement. Gymkbana is the name sufficiently foreign and descrip tive to denote many ingenious meth ods of coyly extracting money for charitable purposes. The very excel lent croquet lawn afforded much scope for skill and amusement, and Mr. and Mrs. Salmon, both clever exponents of this fascinating game, gave valu able assistance in introducing mnan croquet novelties. Mrs. W. A. Tay lor was successful in winning the tro phy for putting four balls through a hoop after a strenuous contest with Ci. F. T. Hickford.

THE GARDEN. SOME OF OUR ENEMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
THE GARDEN. SOME OF OUR ENEMIES. (From "The Sydney Daily Tele graph.") It is always an easy matter to write about our friends. Not so in re gard to our enemies. We get no good out of the latter company, and as a rule are not too anxious to say much about them. They do us injury, and many a time bring on no. end of trouble. Still there are times when even an enemy must intrude. Garden ers cannot afford to pass him by. We must lmow him intimately, and must be for ever on his (or her) trail. In most of our life-walks the enemy is held at arms' length. We unfortunatce people are placed in the position of being for ever after subjects that bring us no good. i And of late our enemies have had a good fling. They have taken a full measure, and have been doing the thing handsomely, Many of us have been warring all we knew. Some have held the pests in check, while others have found themselves with all the losses on their side. These notes have been put together to give our read ers a chance o...

Heads that Grow Bigger. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Heads that Grow Bigger. This is not' a facetious nimatter, but one which is the outcome of iphire nological examination, on the ''"he fore and after" principle, of the heads of men who stir the public. As a matter of fact, it is contend ed that while a manr stops grow ing, generally speaking, at the age of twenty-five, his head, iparticular ly if he is a thinker, continues to grow and increase in size, often after he is forty years of age. In deed, experts say that a man's braini does not becomue fully de velopied until he is forty or fifty years of ago, and a well-known London phrenologist, who has mea suredl the heads of many promineint peoI'le from time to timne, has dis covered by means of these nimeasure nmamts that the head continues to grow at a considerably greater age than is generally believed.

Coburg Drill Hall. OPENED BY THE MINISTER OF DEFENCE. SPEECH BY SENATOR MILLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Coburg Drill Hall. OPENED BY THE MINISTER OF DEFENCE. - SPEECH BY SENATOR MILLEN. After a long period of delay, owing to a doubt as to whether the local Council were going to take any part in the ceremony or to regard it merely as a matter of no concern to them, the fine drill hall erected by the De fence Department at a cost of £1500. in Reynard road, for the use of the senior cadets of Area 59. for the 59th Regt. when formed, and later on for a battery of Field Artillery, was offi cially opened by the Minister of De fence on Saturday afternoon. From an early hour in the day the hall and vicinity presented a busy appearance, for there was any amount of volunteers at the work of decorat ing the interior of the hall, and the platform or dais from which the open in.g ceremony was to be performed. The arrival of the Minister was fixed for 3.30 p.m., but long before that hour there was a steady influx of khn kee clad youths, varied occasionally by one or two older lads and an occasional...
Improving Sydney Road. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
$3trun.S\vicI aln Cooburg ¢Later. PUBLISHED ON FRIDAY MORNING. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1914 Improving Sydney Road. The Brunswick Council is now fully awake to the fact that the condition of the main thoroughfare of the city is, if not impassable, at least impos sible. At present apparently the only hope is to improve Sydney road. To make it as it should be would of course mean that it must be taken ulip and wood-blocked for its whole length. There are so many things on hand just now, and there is such a damnable lack of pence, that this very necessary and highly commendable work cannot be at once grappled. Something at tempted-something done, is honcwever to be the motto for the Council. and so thile Melbourne City Council's tar sprayer has been 1orrOowedl in thle in terinm hefore pl)rocluring one for Brun1s wick, and already the work is in pro gress of tarring the roadway. There is no doubt that this operation will ef fect a vast improvement in tlhe coln dition of this street. and tha...

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Personal. An appreciative spectator at the opening of the Coburg drill hall on Sa turday was Mr. J. Sheehan, head teanc'her of the Coburg school. He doubtless recognised any amount of I)a'st pupils in the fire hundred cadets paraded before the Minister and Com muandant. An unconscious humorist attracted by the plaid trews of the Officer Com manding the 59th Battalion of Cadets on Saturday asked "If that was Gen cral Hamilton?" A popular figure at the opening of the Coburg drill hall on Saturday was that of Staff Sergeant Major MacMa hlon.. a favorite with the lads. The Mayor and layoress of Coburg (Cr. and Mrs. H. J. Richards) were amongst those presented to the new State Governor. Sir Arthur Stanley an( Lady Stanley, at Parliament House on Monday. Senator Millen, mMiister of Defence, made a very favorable impression upon Coburg people.

General News. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
General News. Some soreness is felt vby represen tatives of the Coburg and Brunswick branches of the A.N.A.. the North Brunswick Progress Association. and other bodies, at no invitation being extended themn to take part in the ceremony of declaring the Coburg drill hall open. The feeling is in a meas uro accentuated by the fact that am ongst the invited guests were many who had never in any way moved or assisted in the matter of securing a drill hall at all. Pariallv the omis sions were due to the uncertainty up till a few days before the event as to who was to have the running of the affair and what shape the ceremonial was to take. The annual meeting of the Coburg Football Club was held last evening, and a full report will appear in next issue. There was a good attendance of members, friends and supporters, and there is no question that the splendid success of the club last season in securing the premiership, together with the general good behavliour of the teamn, have enhanced it...
