THE LIMITS OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 February 1914

•c THE LIMITS OF SPORT. Let not your recreations be lavish spenders of your time, but Choose Bucb which are healthful, ^iort, tran sient, recreative, and apt to refresh you; but at no hand dwell in them [ or make them your great employment, for he that spends his time in sportB and calls it recreation is like him whose garment is all made of fringes and his meat nothing but sauces; they are healthless, chargeable, and use less. And, therefore, avoid such games which require much time or long at tendance, or which are apt to steal the affections from more severe em ■loyraents.

A Day in the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 February 1914

A Day In the Country. The fresh-oomplexioned young police man from the country betrayed by his I self-conscious air the disquietude he felt on first going on duty in a Lon don street. He was particularly dis turbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on the kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity of raze worthy of Sam Weller himself. Waiting until he thought he waa mot; noticed, the new constable ap proached the urchin. "Mow, then," began the policeman, •'what are you sitting there for all this u:ne?" "Taldn' a day oft in the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced officer, perfectly new to the species, stared at the pro duct of slumdom in undisguised amaze ment. "Takin' a day oil in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you see r.lie country from 'ere?" "In your face, of course." replied the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

ft———a— how A PRISONER WAS RESCUER A\V A Clever Ruse. In t&e battle of Poitiers, 1356, ft number of Scottish soldiers fought on the side of the French, and several ol them were taken prisoners by the Eng lish. Amongst them was Sir Archi bald Douglas, half-brother of Lord Wil liam Douglas. Being dressed in a suit of splendid armor, the victors thought they had captured—as indeed they had ! —some great nobleman. Several of I the English were about to strip ©ff his : p.rmor, when Sir William Ramsay, of : Colluthie, who was also a prisoner, i happening to catch Sir Archibald's j eye, gave him a meaning look. Pre- • tending to be very angry he cried out::; "You rascal, how is it that you are wearing your master's armor? Come : here and pull off my boots." Douglas, seemingly thoroughly cow-! gd, went humbly forward and drew off a boot, with which Sir William began j to beat him.

STAGPOOLE FAMILY. A SPLENDID COMBINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

STAGPOOLE FAMILY. A SPM3NDID COMBINATION. One of the best entertainments ever given in Mortlake took place last Friday before a highly appre ciative and delighted audience. The occasion was the first visit of the Stagpoole Family, and those present were very pleased when it was announced that the company would again visit Mortlake in about two weeks with a complete change of programme. The even ings entertainment opened with some original jokes and songs from two very clever patter comedians, and a simmer of amusement ran through the show from start to finish. The singing was very good, and the acrobatic feats were such as to draw rounds of hearty ap plause. The antics of a "donkey" were extremely funny. The un animous opinion of the audience was that the show was more than equal to anything of the kind seen here previously. A crowded house should greet the company on their next visit. The company played at Terang on Saturdaj' night to a packed house.

When he had got on to hie seventh j egg, an old farmer, who had been pre judiced against monsieur on account \ •of his moustachios, could brook such extravagance no longer, and, speak ing up, said: "Why, sir, you leave all the white! How is the landlord to provide break fasts at that rate?" "Vv," replica the barbarian, "you wouldn't hat me to eat de vite? De yolk is de schicken, de vite the ted ders.

INTER-DISTRICT CRICKET. WARRNAMBOOL V MORTLAKE [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

INTER-DISTRICT CRICKET. WARRNAMBQOI* V MORTI/AKE Taking advantage of the ex cursion on Thursday the Mortlake District cricketers played the re turn match with Warrnambool on the Merri Cricket Oval. The wea ther was particularly warm, 105 in the shade being recorded—the hottest day for the season as far as VVarrnambool is concerned. The turf was nicely swarded, which made it cooler for the players to field on. The Mortlake team was not quite so strong as on the pre vions occasion when the teams met, as Horwood was an absentee, and his loss was manifest. However, X,awrence proved the here of the match, and put up the biggest score for the day, besides playing the soundest and freest cricket. His off drives, leg glances, aud neatly placed strokes through slips were a treat, whilst he never once appeared in difficulties. Coming from matting on to turf made it difficult for the Mortlake players to judge the pace of the ball, which kept particularly low, consequent ly many players were al...
