PUBLICANS AT CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914

PUTBLICANS AT' CRICKE.1 Wild cheering hearty barracking and remarkable cricket were features of the meeting of the Williamstown and.-Foots cray publicians at the Western reserve last week, The combatants were not all pub. licians. None however, were strangers to the interior of hotels. If performances may be taken as a guide they were less familiar with the laws of cricket. But there is a stroug suspicion that at least two or three of tne willow wielders did not show their true form; that their cricket was interfered with by their anxiety abouit the rsfreshnments and their fear that during their absence ite catering business would not be properly attended to. This may account for the fact that therlocal public ans, upon whom devolved the stocking of the commissiarat, were easily disposed of the first six so easily indeed that only 7 runs appeared on the board. Fraser, IHal let, and "Talisker" Lovett made none be tween them--an inglorious start, and one that showed that Lovett at any...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 4 April 1914

FOOTBALL. Notes by "hALg FORWARD." The opening of the football season draws nigh. A start is to be made even earlier than expected. The Association has recog nised the claim of the unions that Eight Hours' day should not be trenched upon and to meet the loss of that day the opening matches are to be played on Easter Mon day-next Monday week-when the locals are to try conclusions with Brighton at Footscray. As weeks go by the prospects of the tri colors increase in brightness and, on paper, the team to represent this district should be hard to beat. \Vith thle players who won last year's pennant all available and other good men offering, it looks as if Foot scray was going to be a strong tip for the honors. 3But the management will be wise not to depend too ntuch on appearances. It hasdto be remembered thait other clubs are stirred by last year's disappointment to strengthen their ranks. Several clubs whom Footscray had tdifliculty in defeating, have secured footballers of ability to...

THE IRISH BULL. Sir Richard Steele explained why his countrymen made bulls--"'Tis the effect of climate, sir. If an Englishman were born in Ireland he would make as many," said h6. Ii is not everyone who knows a bull when ho seas her. It may be no bull, but moreol a blunder-a botise, as the'Froncil have it. To mako sure that we have the true criterion let us first set down a few of the genu ine, orthodox Irish kind: He built the wall wider than it was high, so that when it fell down it should be lighcr than it was wide. Two weary and footsore Irishmen come to a millstone: ten miles to Dublin. "Arrah," says one, "'tis but five miles apiece." Disputing of the date of St. Pat rick's birthday: "Ho couldn't; have had two unless he was twins." The Irish sailor reported that in Philadelphii. they copper-bottomed the tops of the houses with sheet lead.

RANDOM READINGS. WHERE CAMELS SMOKE. 'A curious fact is described in the paper "II Tabacco," quoted by a writer in the "Strand Magazine," regarding the taming of wild camels by the natives of Morocco. \ three cornered piece of wood, thrnugh which a hole is drilled, is placed in the mouth of the camel, and a light ed cigar, very large and loosely rolled, is then inserted in the hole. As soon as the animal starts to draw it becomes very tame, and con tinues to inhale the smoke, and to emit it through its nose. As soon as the first cigar is finished, a new one must be put in its place, other wise the animal becomes furious and very stubborn, fixes its legs in the ground, and cannot be made to move until the cigar smokes again.

HOWLING NOTES. A party of bowlers from the Foota cay eblub journeyed to Sunshine on Saturday last and had a most enjoyable time. The green was in good playing trim and the surroundings simply charming. The playing area is set in a veritable oasis of the plains surrounded with beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers special attention being devoted to Aus tralian trees, the wattle--Australia's National Flower--playing a large part in the decorative scheme. English, Howe, Wintle and Rogers captained the various rinks. The first three won rather comfortably, whilst the latter was only a few down, the totals being Footscray 122, Sunshine 75.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 11 April 1914

'nhere are those amongst the unthink ing who profess to see in the system of rating on the unimproved value of land a cure for all the ills that municipalities are heir to, but a little consideration should show them that as far as Foots cray is concerned at any rate the effect would be to throw a heavy linancial burden on the smaller ratepayer. The law makes it optional for municipalities to adopt either the existing method of rating or the unimproved value basis and it is well therefore, before jumping to conclusions, that councillors and rate payers should carefully study the posi tion. In a district where there is a large amount of unoccupied land suitable for building purposes, a rate based on the unimproved value of land would penalise the owner of vacant land, and while relieving other ratepayers might force on the utilisation of the vacant territory. But in Footscray such large manufac turers as Angliss and Co., the Colonial Sugar Refining Coy., and many others that will rea...
