GOLF. Saturday saw the commencement bf the competition fqr the Yarra Yarra club's competition, when the largest field on record for this event took out cards. The play as a whole was disap! pointing, none of the players reaching their best standard, while many failed altogether.. C. M'Dougall with a steady 87 headed the list, closely followed by G. F.

A FREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 13 June 1914
A FREAK. Much interest has been centred in a piece of bluestone, measuring about five inches wide by eight inches long, that was found embedded in the heart of a tree near the Alphington station. The men engaged on the new building there, had occasion to fell the tree, and found the stone about 3 feet from the ground. There is a great deal of speculation as to the manner in which the stone was de posited in so extraorsinary a position, and perhaps the opinion of Mr Coate, the contractor, is as feasible as any. He thinks it may have been placed some 20 years ago between the forked branches of the tree, and that subsequently the branches grew together and closed the stone in their embrace.

NEW RAILWAY BUILDING. Those who pass the Alphington station regularly have been interested in noting the progress of tne new building on the up line, and there can be no doubt that when complete it will be one of the most up-to-date and also one of the most im posing stations on the line. The roof is composed of tiles of red fibrous cement slates, which have a fine appearance, and the structure itself is lined through out with Queensland hoop pine. The department are now erecting a foot bridge over the line, in order that a free access may be made from one side to the other. A ladies' waiting room, a general waiting room, and a booking office are included in the new structure.

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
'PEN PICTURES-OF THE PAST. I TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LAlORERS. * The first important epoch in the history 6f . modern British ltbour politics was the formation, in 1834, of the Grand National Consolidated Trades' Union, a really important association, numbering as it did half a million adherents, who represented every branch of labour, including agriculture. Even women's unions were affiliated. The tremendous possibilities of such a iunited b!,dy of workers naturally aroused the attention of the governing classes, and a prosecution was instituted for "unlawful conspiracy," of which the most salient incident is that of the Dorchester labourers. At this period, when 1the dverage wage of tl e .English farnmhand was 10s. a week, the Dorset laborers re ceived 7s. Half a dozen:0 of such menl, MIethodists andcl local preachers, started a "GCrand Lodge of the Na tional Friendly Society of Aglri cultural I.abourers" at Tolpuddle (Dorsetshire). Somre farmers insti tuted a prosecution for "co...

Quite .Correct. He was one of those inquisitive, loquacious strangers who, not con tent with telling you of all. their doings and achievements, insist, on learning all go-bur secrets. And poor Jones found himself alone with the man in the com partinlent of a railway train which ran without a stop from Crewe to London. Having asked countless questions concerning his fellow-traveller's busi ness and the object of his journey, the stranger began to make inquiry about his family. "Well,. if tou really want to know," said the exasperated Jones, "i'll tell you. I have a wife and five children, but I've never- seen one of them." "Never seen one of them ?" began the stranger; "But-but-'-" "I tell yoi I've neveir-seen oine of them," repeated Jones. "I've been away from home for a. week, and my youngest kiddie was born yes terday." A man rang ' the hell :at~': Willie fludd's house ine day, _and W illie; aged eight, ansl'ered it...

Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSONI. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE .:: THOMPSONI. This n oth, which is a striking example of the curious colour variation common among insects, Lirds, and animals, is a special ob ject of interest to entomologists, in view of the receout discovery of a new and third variety by Mr. J. Tholmpson, a Chester entomologist. This form of the insect appears at present to be confined to Dela more Forest, Cheshire. and is very rare. It is named Thompsoni, after its discoverer, and is black, with a conspicuous white border to its wings. In its second variety the moth exhibits the first culminating stage of variation, ,and is black, witlh grey wing fringes, a change to a darker hue from the commonaqr, ordinry type. " The second variety, 'cf which we al so give an illustration, is named Robsoni, of Hartlepool. Neither .of these varieties, however, is an abrupt transition, for between the typical insect and each of them are var ious intermediate forms. From 1JHE' THOIPSONF, THE LA.tE. IBRIT...
When Walking is Hard Work. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
SWhen Walking is Hard : Work. Pl'eople often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of ground per day. Even then a good many men fall ,but through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up *at the end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a mat ter of foot-tons of energy expend ed. Take an ordinary laborer, and his. dlay's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same amount of muscle work. But mark, if he carries an overcoat weighing 6lb., he does 811 foot tons; Now, the soldier is a regular pack-horse, and the kit that he car ries averages about 601b. in weight. So that he does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to " break camp" before starting, and at the finish of the march he has to pitch camp, draw water, collect Juel, clean rifl...
IVANHOE v. DIAMOND CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
IVANHOE v. DIAMOND CREEK. There was more than a little dis appointment at the turn things toolk at Saturday's match between Ivanhoe and .Diamond Creek, decided on the recreation ground, Ivanhne. The game was so very one-sldedc that interest in it was mild. Diamond Creek had a weak team in, and though they bat tied sturdily, thliey were left far in the rear. They had the wind in the first quaaiter anid-eire fortunate enough to get.2 goals and 4 points; even here Ivanhoe did better, as they kicked 2 goals and 3 behinds aiainst the wind. For the rest of the game Diamond Creek secured only 3 be hinds, and that was in the third qua'r ter. . When it is known that Ivanhoe got a total of 11 goals and 12 be hinds, against thevisitirs' 2 goals and 7 behinds, it will be realised how the game was lacking in the keen spirit of r iry. It is to be hoped that when:-Diamond Creek has to face Ivanhoe again, a more even game will be played, Goal-kickers for-Ivanhoe were: Fox (4), Sach (3), R. Scott (2...

In answer to one of these the lecturer showed the reason why a man who owned thousands of pounds worth of land sho...
