"Borrowed Plumes." [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 10 January 1914
"Borrowed Plumes." It is frequently said that Christmas brings with it many memories of the past. This year it was a reminder to Mr. Ranlkin, of Evaus Street, that just twelve months ago a constable borrowed from him ten Chinese lan terns. statinlg that he desired to il luminato wedding festivities. IHe failed to retunl with the lanterns, however, and IMr. Rankin is not ac quainted with the personality of the constable. Perhaps this will act as a reminder to the "absent-milded beggar."

Lawson, 3, Water Street, Camperdown, N.S.W., "Sometimes she was so bad she would fall down with weakness. Many a time I have picked her up, thinking she was dead. She would hold her breath, and I would have to smnack her on the back so as to help her breathe again. I gave her a number of cough remedies, and I was always taking her to the doe tors, and they gave her many cough re medics, but nothing had any effect whatever. One day a lady recommend ted me to try Dr Sheldon's New Dis covery, and said it .was very good for w-hooping cough, so I got a bottle and gave her three doses, and sometimes five doses a day. and it seemed to relieve her almost at once, and in a week's time you would not know her; she did not look the samme child. She is much I fatter, and has never coughed since tak ing Dr Sheldon's New Discove...

PRETTY PORTONIANS. In Praise of Local Lasses. Their Claims to Good Looks. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 10 January 1914
PRETTY PORTONIANS. *- In Praise of Local Lasses. Their Claims to Good Looks. We have received a letter from a gentleman who is evidentl34 an ardent admirer of "the sex" in iPort Mel bourne. Any further corr spondence oni this interesting topic wiiJ be gladly inserted ill our columns. ?.The letter speaks for itself: (To the Editor of the "Stindard") Sir,---Are the Port Melbourne girls pretty? That is a questiol, which we often hear discussed. It occurs with peculiar aptness, at the present time, I reckon. We have'jnst seen the conclusion of a "beauty 'comnpe tition" at the local picture -thlleatre. Although that exhibition wass not by any means representative of tle 'best type of girl in the Port. it was' suffi cient to indicate that our lcea girls can hold their heads as high, as !their sisters in the more widely-·ltvertised suburbs, when it comes to .'s questiou of good looks. The f.ct 1 self-evi dent to anyone who hais the "seeing eye.," This, it :mjay bo -. plained, is not quite ...

PRETTY THIN SOUP. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
PRETTY THIN SOUP. Numerous complaints had come be fore a certain public official in regard to the quality of food served to the inmates of one of the public institu tions, and he determined to make a personal investigation in order to see if the matter really needed remedying. Making his way just about dinner time to the particular building in question he walked straight over . to where the kitchen was located. At the very door he encountered two mus cular-looking men carrying a huge steaming boiler. "Put that kettle down," he ordered brusquely, and the men at once obeyed. "Get me a spoon," he next com manded. The man that brought the spoon was about to say something, but he was ordered to keep silent. "Take off the lid," was the next command; "I'm going to taste it." The two men were utterly cowed by the brusqueness of the official, and wonderingly watched him gulp down a good mouthful. "Do you mean to say you call this soups" the official demanded. "Why, it tastes to me like dirty...
CONSTABLE AND BATHER. A Beach Comedy. Owner Wanted For Suit of Clothes. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
CONSTABLE AND BATHER. A Beach. Comedy. 'Owner Wanted For Suit of Clothes. An amusing little bit of comedy was enacted on the beach at Port, Mel bourne. The chief actors were Con stable Edward Giddens and a young man who deserves, for reasons which will be obvious, to retain his incognito character. While the constable was on duty on Thursday afternoon in the vicinity of the Town Pier he saw the unknown bathing in the proscribed area there with his clothing deposited in a little heap on the pier. .The officer marched up to where the garments were lying and from that strategical position commanded the bather to come to terra firma. That was just what the youth refused to do. Instead of surrendering himself into the arms of the law. he executed evolutions in the water and carried on a species of "tick-tack" conversation with the uniformed officer. After having endeavoured vainly to cajole the bather from his bath and despairing of tiring out his patie,.ce, Constable Giddens thought the...
PRETTY PORTONIANS. (To the Editor of the "Standard") [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
PRETTY PORTONIANS. (To the Editor of the "Standard") Sir,-I feel I cannot let Portoniab's letter about beautiful girls in Port 2Melbourne pass without a little coin ment. I quite agree with him about the beauty of many of our working girls, but I am thinking that if the results of our late beauty competition were to be sent abroad, it would not say much for our beauties or our ownu judgment of good looks. Of course it was won fairly by the majority of votes--but by a lot of lads and school children, in my opin ion. It is a consolation to know that the eight beauties selected by the Williamson Company will shortly tour the world to let other folks see we really have some fine-looking girls in Melbourne.-Yours, etc., YESON.

SWIMMING NOTES. THE SORRENTO DROWNING ~ATALITY. GOOD WORK BY PORT MEMBERS. But for the presence of some: of the members of the Port Swimming Club, who were camping on the back beach, the Sorrento occurrence at Christmas might have resulted in more than one life being lost. Mr. George Callaway was the first to notice the men. in trouble, and on raising the alarm, mem bers rushed down to the beach and out on to the rocks. Everything possible was done to rescue Mr. Johns, but un fortunately there was no rope available. Mr. Ben Hair deserves credit for his pluck in risking being washed off the rocks, in trying to reach him. Only those whoknow the Sorrento back beach and the nature of the rocks can appre ciate the danger in which Mr. Hair placed himself. In the meafitime a short rope arrived and with this help Mr. A. H. Howlett was enabled to res cue Mr. Sweetman, who, for a second time was in danger of being swept out and drowned. Unfortunately, Mr. Johns was swept out to sea. This in c...

PORT PICTURE THEATRE. There are big attractions down on the bill for the Port Melbourne Pic ture Theatre next week. On Mondac. Tuesda". and Wednesday there is a star drama in "The Right of Way."

ELECTRIC POWER USERS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
ELECTRIC POWER USERS. ---0- An additional number of users for electric energy are likely to join the council's mains this year. Within the last week or so a two-horse motor has been fixed at Prisk's laundry, where'it will drive a shirt and collar machine; a new device designed to save labor, improve, the ironing, and lessen wear on the linen. Two mo tors, a three and a four horse, have been fixed at the wood turning pre mises of Messrs. Stokes and Morrison. in Heath Street; and an additional five horse at Messrs. Robert Har per and Co.'s. Satisfactory informa tion was ventilated on Friday to the effect that the latter firm. have de cided to put in a two hundred horse motor. This should greatly assist the council. in so far as it will tend to equalise the maximum demand load. Other big daytime users are wanted.

Solicitor-General's View. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 17 January 1914
Solicitor-General's View. In an interview in the "Herald," Mr. D. Mackinnon, the Solicitor-General, is represented as saying "that if a com plaint were made to him that public in convenience was caused owing to the adjournment of cases he would have to look into it. Mr. Mackinnon remarked that justices Of the peace were appoint ed so that justice might be administered expeditiously in the courts of petty ses sions, and that the public might be con venienced to the greatest possible ex tent. The public interest must be con sidered first, and the rights of justices to refuse to sit need only be discussed as secondary to the public interest. He knew, nothing officially of the differ ences between the justices at Port Mel bourne."

BIG FIRE AVERTED. ',000 Tons of Coal in Danger. At Messrs. Harper's Store. The old sugar factory at the cor ner of Beaconsfield Parade, adjoin ing the Lagoon. narrowly escaped be ing the scene of a serious- conflagra tion on Monday. At present the building is used as a coal and general store by. Messrs. Robert Harper and Co., Pty., and it was discovered that fire had broken out among the coal stocked there, the bulk being about 1,000 tons. Several men and two hose-carts from the Port Melbourne and South Melbourne fire stations, under Dis trict-Officer H. Bunn, turned out. After digging out twenty tons of coal the firemen got down to the seat of the outbreak and extinguished the fire, just in time to' preverit it from spreading among the mass of coal. The results then would have been disastrous. As it was the damage done by the fire was not of a serious nature. By way of precaution a fireman was left on duty with one line of hose till Tuesday, so that the fire could be at once exting...
