A SEA MONSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 March 1914

A SEA MONSTER. Down at tlhe Surrey locks just now there is a iman who has not ornlr seen a fearful and wonderful marine monster, but has even sketched it from life. It is not exactly the sea serpent of hoary tradition, blut a sort of sea-giraffe-an extraordinary looking amiphious., animal which is puzzling all the zoologists who have heard of it. Some idea of this weird freak of nature may be gathered from this   first-hand description of it: Has bonny blue eyes. Cries like a baby. Its neck is twenty feet long;boldy fifty feet. Has a big head, with long ears and long snout. Three horrid fins adorn its bony head. Two big flapping fins.. Skin like a seal. Brownish-yellow in colour, with pretty dark spots. A plain, commonsense seaman, who tells his story bluntly, without any thrills or trimmings, Second Offi cer G. Batchelor, of the Allan liner Coriinthian, described his strange adventure with this sea-giraffe to the "Daily Sketch."'' "We were bound from I.ondon to 'Montre...

Port Melbourne, on their own re; serve, beart Brunswick by 50 runs on the first innings, although at one stage of the play on Saturday it looked pos sible for the visitors to snatch-a,?vi tory. The batting of Taylor, St.Jbltn and Andreson, however, saved; the situation for tho Ports!l With eight for 79, in reply to the home team's 142, Brunswick only added 13, Ander son getting both wickets for 4 runs. Going in a second time at 2.55 p.m., the Seasiders' first five wickets fell cheaply, only 33 being on the board, as Taylor (captain) joined St. John; 66 were put- on before -St. John was well caught by Hodder for a vigor ously made 51 (one 6 off McKenzie, and four 4's). After hittinig McKen zio over the inner fence, St, John went from 18 to 28 by singles. Bridges miss ed him when 42 (a difficult chance), and at 43 Hyett let him off behind the wickets.

ISRAEL ZANGWILL. AN ENTHUSIASTIC HEBREW. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

' ISRAEL ZANGWILL. ------+ AN ENTHUSIASTIC HEBREW. A strong-willed enthusiast ?ho hzs knonn hard. fighting, and who nill continue to fight for his ideals by practical, commonsense met hods, if he can, and by enthusiasm and forcible methods if he cannot-that is Israel Zangwill. He will be courteous and ratient if you give him a reason for it, but he will not permit anyon. unnecessarily to delay him from the work he loves, or from the special object he has in view. He is con scious that he is a force in the world, and therefore he is good to dleal with, for he will either not answer your questions at all or else will answer them with authority and knowledge. This man has ma~ny life interests, but above all else he is a J.ewish Nationalist. caring and striv ng as passionately for Home Rule for Jews as ever a Fenian did for Ireland. There is a fine touch of cosmopoli tanism in Israel Zangwill's attitude towards life. When he is working out his own proposition he lets no one interfere, ~...

Abroad, where great pride-and just pride-is taken in the mileage per gallon of fuel that can be obtained, a small band of motorists recently has been ex peripnenting with gum camphor as a dope" for petrol. Usually, about onle ounce of camphor is placed in five gallions of petrol, and it is stated 1,by those who use the mixture that thle oporation of their motors is much Slijperier \\i !h thile camphor in the petrol than without it.

Perhaps he imagines that the piers, go down through the water to the bottomn of the river, w-here, by some miria culous means, .they find. a firm foundation.
