SHOOTING AT YARRAVILLE. ANOTHER EXCITING INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914

SHOOTING AT YARRA VILLE. ANOTHER EXCITING IN CIDENT. On Wednesday of last week resi. dents of Yarraville were thrown into a state of excitement by the shooting afiray that has been fully described and on Wednesday of this week, by a strange co-incidence, there was more excitement in that portion of this municipality as the result of a revolver shot. According to the story gleaned by the police a man named John Breh eny, aged 35 years, and a driver in the employ of e\larchant and Co., cordial manufacturers, called at the shop of Mrs S. Hampton, at the cor ner of Stephen and Schild streets, adjoining the Yarraville Hall, for orders. In the course of his duty he went behind the counter and kneel ing down filled two crates with empty cordial bottles. While Breheny was thus engaged a middle-aged woman walked briskly into the shop and deposited a bag on the counter. The eleven year old daughter of Mrs H-Iampton was about to ask her what she desired, when she drew back atfrighted as the wo...

GARDEN NOTES. THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914

C7,T~i ATO ES. By .lR En. GRAY, THE FLOWER GARDEN. In this district the time for success fully sowing seied iu autumnll is neces sarily limited to a few weeks and it is therefore urigent that those who desiro a lplrofuse display of lowers in early spring should sow seeds of hardy annuals now. T'wo things are required to make tllings germinate -mnoisture and warmth and these can both he ob tnined just now. A few weeks later and the moisture will be there but no warmth and seed sown then will be non-productivoe. This is the cause of many dishoeartening failures by ama teurs. and, piittig nside all ef ierh,-, tractions, they should endelavor to " do it now."

THE VEGETABLE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914

THE VEGETABLE GARDEN. If it has not yet been done the present is a good time to get the garden fork and spade to work on al unoccupied ground. Rubbish, such as bean andpea stalks that have served their purpose, should be relegated to the scrap heap, as if left in the ground they only en courage and sustain diseases and insect pests. The soil, at time of writing, is dry and does not present that appear ance that encourages the gardener to indulge in digging exercise, but the benefit resulting from digging it dry rather than when it is wvet and cloggy more than pays for the extra exertion. If manure is available dig plenty of it in exccpt where root crops are to be sown. For these reserve a portion of the garden and after trenching two feet deep place a layer of manure on the bottom. Onions and cabbages may be sown as advised previously and a few broad beans for early crops may be put in. For these choose a sunny spot where the soil is not too rich and is fairly dry in winter. Usually...

WILLIAMSTOWN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914

WILLIAMSTOWIVN RA CES. 'The race-meeting at Williamstown onil Monday attracted a very large attend ane- of patrons of the turf and for those who regard a visit to this well-kept course as a social fixture the gathering was extremely successful, The racing too was decidedly interesting, but the defeat of favorites in the first five races must have been disconcerting to the backers, who, however, had a chance to get a bit back in the final event when the popular selection caught the judge's eye. At 11.26 o'clock last Saturday night the watchman at Cuming Smith and Co's works at Yarraville found the east ern wall of No 3 superphosphate build ing, a three storied structure, alight. The alarm was given and a steamer, two hose carts and 10 men were prompt ly in attendance and were able to pre vent serious damage. The wall and the flooring of each story was burnt and the fire-fighters had a difficult task to extinguish the flames owing to the presence of a quantity of acids on the third fl...

NOTELETS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914

NOTELETS. Footscray certainly opened the :,eason with a victory but in their display, a:s the boy says, there was nothing to write home about. Hardly a player on the side performed up to last year's form and it was evident that for most of them the season had started a month too early. Of course, providing that disaster is avoided in the first few matches, the team that works itself gradually into form is less likely to run stale in the closing stages as Footscray has proven before now. Prior to last Saturday's match members' tickets to the value of about twenty pounds were disposed of and in its membership roll the locals appear likely to bhe far ahead o, any other Association club, At the termination of the match acting secretary, F, W. Gee, on behalf of the com mittee, presented Messrs Archie Clarke, Fred Lawson and Herman Briese with wedding presents in the shape of a silver plated cruet each. The secretary of thie Ioot:icray Fiootball Club acknowledges the following additional ...

A PLEA FOR ENTERPRISE. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914

A PLEA FOR ENTER PRiSE. To h'" kditor of TE Ai?DVE, 'rISER. Sir, While I agree with much that "Advnce Footscray" had to say in your last issue I regret that he did not give credit where crediit is due. He ri'fer.; to the lack of enterprise of cer Ltain institutions hut leaves severely alone such progressive bodies as the local football and cricket clubs, and the Footscray rMunicipal Band. 'T'he foot hall club, as everyone knows, won the premiership last season after a dlisplay of enterprise in management, in methods and in play that would be hard to beat. ,Largely, I believe, through the urgings of The Advertiser cricket contributor the Footscray Cricket Club showed its enterprise by seeking and gaining ad mission into senior ranks, and the team's showing in the season just closed gives promise of big successes to conme. And of the hand it may be said that its action in providing a free concert for subscrib ors and the public every Thursday even ing dluring the summer months is de c...

To the editor af "''l'he Advertiser."'' Sir, "Advance Footscray" asks for opinionis as to the necessity for more enterprise, push and progress in Foot scray. I for one endorse everything he says. The first thing needed is to push ourselves along; then to push councillors along, and thus push the dlistrict ahead. We put Labor councillors in, expecting something diffelrent and what have we got. Nothing at all. if we desire to show visitors samples of our municipal activity we can show them our market -a line place, used as a stone and rub bish depot. Or wce can point to our electric light on Friday nights, glim mering faintly and appaurently making a hard fight to maintain hbare exist once. Why don't our Lablor councillors whom I always vote for and from whom I expected much, show the old heads that a market can Ie successfully run in FIootscray ? Why should we have to go to North Melbourne, to buy things at reasonable prices ? If market garden ore won't come out this far on spec, why...
