TABLE MANNERS IN THE 'FORTIES. ADVICE ON ETIQUETTE FOR DINNER PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
TABLE MANNERS IN THE 'FORTIES. -- -+- - ADVICE ON ETIQUETTE FOR DINNER PA RTIES. Dinner etiquette seventy years ago was the etiquette of strict conven tion. Young hostesses, on their probation to the role of chatelaints, had not less to learn than the shrinting debu tanre. Women were expectedto show so much becoming emoticii in those days. that it seems almost to have ibec:n a pro-arranged matter when they were to swoon, when to'look coy, wh.n aprdaud. when--for a change- follow their own inclinations. To read an old etiquette. look of the 'forties is to live once more in history. Those were the days when th:ere was a chivalry of food. Th? presence of a woman reade a re markable difference in the manners of the table. '" We do not expect," says an old manual of that period, writtea for the benefit of the young American man ensociete, "a lady? to eat beefsteak and onions, washed down with beer or porter. She will scarce!ly cat pork or drink nhisky. T'ro eat ravenously involves eating...

Brunswick Mechanics' Institute. The position of the Brunswick Me chanics' Institute is deplorable.

The Road to Prosperity. In a leading article dealing with the p?rosperity of New Zealand, the 'Age' on 24th February made the (to it) ex. traordinlary confession that 'it is be yond question that a bold forward pol icy of land and taxation reform adop td at a critical pinch, gave the stini. ulus which placed ithe dominion in the van of both commercial and political well-being.'

Votes For Babies. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
Votes For Babies. Now that it. is pretty well assured that women will vote, it is time to arouse public sentiment. in favour of votes for babies. The awful state of our local and Impeiial government shouts aloud for infant suffrage. It is vain to look for puriity in government until the ballot is in tho hands of the really innocent. Let the babies vote! Taxation without representation is a horrid thing, and the baby uemanuds justice. Ha-o mans infant property owners aie paying taxes to-day and are yet refused tue ballot! It is an outrage! Who but babies are tit to plan stump u ary legislatiou iiffccting the milk habit tand maitters relainug to the tax on paregoric: Crushed by the cruel supremacY of male and fe male adult suff rige the infant is fore c-t to imbibe eighti *tw o varietuic ot artificial baby food, mnd it has no re lief through the b llot.

Population and Laud S Values. - ----+------- .'1 ·;y . .. Enquiry is being made as to when Melbourne and suburbs will have a population of 1,000,000: At the pre sent time the population of the metro politan area is about; 650,000. The nor mal rate` of annual increase is roughly 30,000. In ten years' time this in crease would equal 300,000, which,. added td 650,000, the present popula tion, would make- the riesidents:of -Mel a siaburbs number 950A)00 in 1924. eint hoievei for a stwio ,ort thitr~be bks during thi.s period, it is quito safe to assert that in 15 years' time the population of the me tropolita-i area. will be 1,000,000. This is not a surprising number' when it is remembered th* Buenos Ayres, the capital of the Argentine Republic, had at the end of 1912 a population of 383,000. In 14 years' time the pop ulation" of Brunswick will not be less than 70,000. Brunswick only has 12 persons to the acre, as against 37 in Fitzroy, which has only one-third the area of Brunswick.

BOWLS. PRINCES PARK BOWLING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
BOWLS. PRINCES PARK BOWLING CLUB. There has been nothing of much note to chronicle in the history of the above club during the last mont]o or so. The A 4-'s, B 4's and B 3's have 'bitten the dust' in their sections, and succumbed to better and luckier teams. The redoubtable Robert Nor mand pulled off the chanmpionship of the club, for the second year in suc cession, and well merited his victory. On tricky glreens Bob is a Grand Mas ter. However, in the Champion of Chamnpions match with Westmore Ste phens, played at. Carlton, Normand struck his colours and was ~isily- de feated. The A 3's have completed a success ful season by winning their section, and are 'top dogs' for the present. They met Fairfield for the third time on Saturday at Carlton. and an excit ing contest took place, resulting in a win for Princes Park by the small mar gin of 4 points. The following are the scores: Princes Park-74. Caven. O'Meara, Clemence, Dun can .... ................ 27 Ceollings, Ipsen, Thompson, C...

CYCLING HEIDELBERG SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
CYCLING HEIDELBERG SPORTS. The annual sports meeting at Hei delberg was held Saturday, 7th March. The tLoburg Club met at the club rooms, at 2 p.m., and journeyed to Heidelberg in a body. There was a good attendance. The day was un comfortably hot, but did not inconve nience the riders or onlookers. There were refresuhment stalls, merry-go round, hoop-la, sheep judging, foot racing, bicycle racing, and all tio enjoyment experienced at a well-organ ised sports meeting. It was a flat track. but, in forming an opinion, it is vastly inferior to the Vellodrome track, Coburg. If that is the case, then with such fine places as Bruns wick and Coburg, and an up-to-date gravel track, a good cycling club, and hundreds of enthusiastic supporters of cycling and foot-racing, and two har riers' clubs, why a monster sports meeting could not be run at the Vello drome track. Bell street, Coburg? The result of Heidelberg sports are as fol low : Half-Mile Bicycle Event. Three Coburg Club members (E. Bi...
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps, consigned to Bombay Town Hall, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in tact" The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered. only 41 per cent. were in any way damaged--the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.

LESSONS IN GEOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914
LESSONS IN GEOGRAPHY. A schoolmaster was taking a class of boys in geography, the lesson being the islands of the world. The boys were asked to give the name of any island which came to their minds, but their knowledge had reached its limit, and the class had dome to a stand still so far as islands were concerned. 'Come boys.' said the master. 'Is there no one here who can give me the name of another island?' But no answer came from the class. 'Now; then.' said lhe., 'to help you a. little. Sunposing I were a piece of land. and all around (pointing) was water. What- island should I repre sent ?' The answer he expected, of course, was, 'The Isle of Maln.' But a bright. boy, very eager to answer, said: 'Please, sir, the Scilly Tslands.'
