Balaclava Electorate. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Balaolava Electorate. Mr Agar Wynne, M.H.R. for the Federal constituency of Balaclava, and Postmaster.General in the pre sent Government, does not intend to contest the seat at the next election. Mr Wynne's reason for retiring from politics is that his private business affairs make a great demand on his time. " My Ministerial duties,"ht says, "mean a great deal of work, and, while I am satisfied that I have made one or two improvements that the public appreciate, I do not feel that I can continue the undertaking. I shall certainly fight for the party at the next election, when it comes, but I shall not myself stand."

CRICKET. ST. KILDA v. PRAHRAN. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

ST. KILDA v. PRAHRAN. A good cirowd attended at the St. Kilda Cricket ground on Saturday last to witness the finish of- this match, and they -were rewarded by seeing a most interesting-finish.- On the first Saturday, .Praliran had scored 225 runs for the loss of nine wickets, and the first ball bowled on Saturday finished up their innings without any .further addition to the score. The seasiders made a very promising start, and it looked as if they were going to make the runs easily. 1Hotchin and Upward were the first batsmen, and they put on 66 runs for the first wicket, the latter being bowled by Schraeder for 30. When Lord joined Hlotchin some fine aggressive cricket was shown, and they got the first hundred in 85 minutes. At 138 Hot chin was caught off Rogers. From thence onward the rest of the St. Kilda batsmen, with the exception of Lord, scratched for runs, evidently trying to keep one end up while the latter did the scoring. In doing this most of them lost their wickets in a...

Local Industry. THE HOME BOOT STORE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Local Industry. THE HOME BOOT STORE. Amongst our local manufacturing industries the Home Boot Store, at 197 Commercial-road, South Yarra, not many door from Chapel-street, and of which Mr. J. H. Homes is the sole pro prietor, is one which is entitled to special attention. The proprietor has been in business for some 10 years, three of which have been spent in the present premises, and during the whole of that period the business has progressed at a very commendable rate. From an outside view, the building, with its two show windows, in which are displayed some splendid speci mens of the handiwork of his firm, does not present a particularly im posing appearance. This opinion, however, is quickly dispelled, as soon as one enters the shop, when the ear is greeted with the sound of well-ad justed machinery, while to the most unobservunt it is at once apparent that the proprietor has reduced economy of space to quite a science. The rear portion of the premises is devoted entirely to man...

Hallkeeper's Quarters. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Halikeeper's Quarters. The work of transforming the old fire station in Macquarie street into living quarters for Mr J. Bell, custodian of the Prahran Municipal Buildings, is proceeding apace, and when completed will in every respect be spacious and airy. The quarters will be two-story high, with a flat roof on portion of the lower story. To have had their old quarters de molished by fire, and to lose a lot of personal belongings thereby, came as a sad blow to Mr and Mrs Bell, and they very much appreciated the many expressions of sympathy which have since been conveyed to them, In the excitement of the fire Mr and Mrs Bell's furniture and be longings were hurriedly removed, and they missed, amongst other things, certain articles of silver ware prized by the family. If anypne took these away for safety, and forgot to return them, Mr and Mrs Bell would dearly love to be reminded of the fact in a practical way.

A.N.A. and Town Hall Site. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

A.N.A. and Town Hall Site. Judging by the look of things, a poll of the ratepayers on the question as to whether the present Prahran Town Hall site should be abandoned in favor of another, is practically assurel. Amongst the body of citi zens who interest themselves in matters municipal the opinion is be coming all the more fixed that the Town Hall ard its bulky, unsightly, and inconvenient appurtenances, not to speak of the insufficient accommo. dation, must go. Bare facts de mand that this should be so. Sentiment will have to melt in the heat of hard facts. The Prahran A.N A. tackled the subject the other night. Mr George Fitzsimmons, as befits his reputation, showed that he was well primed with particulars concerning the change of site pro. posal, as well as in other matters of municipal import. O.her members showed a fair inkling of the subjeot but the majority were lamentably behind the times. And strange to say whenever a Native gets up to steak it's a sovereign to a gooseberr...

Pictures, Books, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Pictures, Books, &c. The Prahran Art Gallery is now clored to make way for a Free Lending Library. There was a loud blaring of Prabran City Council trumpets when the Art or Pioture Gallery was opened. The same thing happened when it was decided to close it. Evidently the opinion is held that Prahran people and visitors generally are not true connoisieurs of paintings; that to them a "Bent Tree" or a broken plate have no distinctions ! Apart from the essential question of estab lishing a Lending Library, there will be many who will regret the obliteration of Prahran's little Art Gallery. In themselves pictures, by their very " natures," are quiet, retiring, unobtrusive, philosophic in fact, in them one expects to find every trait and characteristic which Nature can possibly conceive, and the brush can possibly portray. If a picture did not throw out some ray of light for the admiration of the human eye and mind far better salould it be placed on a waste heap than hung in a ga...

Farmers will be -interested to lean, oni the authority of a French scientist, Prof. Mujitz, that just as good hlar?ests can be expiected after n dull slimmer. as aft"i a' long-spell of sunshine. -Prof. 'luntz says that the value of the biurining orb's rays in helping cropsis vastaly over-rated, his observations showiing that crops Were just as good : fter- the sum ters of 1910 aiil 191'2, when the skier, were generally overcast, as after the universally. sunny summer of 1911.

Tobacco Secrets Smokers Should Know. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914

Tobacco Secrets Smokers Should Know. --+- Bow many. people, even among the most coilfirltnel smokers, know what is the dilifelence between Turkish and Virginian tobaccos ? The smoker, of course, can tell you which is which at the first whiff; but if lou ask him what the original dis tiir~ion is between the two he will tell you that one comes from Turkey and the other ioom America. He is wrong. You could grow Tl'rkish and Virginian tobaccos -in the same field, for they are merely two different varieties of the same plant. Turkish is the leaf of "Ni cotiana Augustilpolia." Of course, the two are often blended. Again, what constitutes the dilfer ence between "strong" and " mild " tobaccos ? It is simple enough. The strong product- is so manufac tured that it )burns badly-or, per haps one shounl say, slowly-the re sult being t.hat the contalined nico tine is distilled in u mi unaltered state. .Mild( tolmecos - are those which burn well, andr thus their conl tained nicotine is consumed o...
