ON T'LE WRJONG SIDE COLLISION IN PREFERENCE TO LOOSE METAL. A young man named Charles Frederick Graf, an employe of D. Munro, dairyman, of Braybrook, was charged at Thursday's court with driving ahorse attached to a cart in Victoria street on the wrong side of the road. Mr Secomb appeared to defend and objectly strongly to the evidence going outside the two que.s tions, whether defendant was on the wrong side of the road and whether he had any justification for being on the wrong side. This had reference to an accident which Mr Secomb claimed had nothing whlatever to do with the issue in that court, though it might bc a miatter for evidence in a claim for damages. Walter Charles, carriage builder, said he was driving a jinker along Victoria street toward Yarraville at 7.25 p.m. on the 2oth nult. As he passed through Victoria street gates defendant drove around Buckley street corner and remrining on the wrong side of the road collided with witness's vehicle with the result that the j...

FOOTBALL. FOOTSCRAY V. PORT MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 2 May 1914
FOOTBALL. Notes by "hAL- FORnwAaR? -:, FOOTSCRAY V. PORT MEIIBOIRNE. Wonderful imlprovement has bccel clfcct ed in the Port.hIMelbourne teamt since last season, and though Footscray beat theml last Saturday with a substantial mnargin of points to spare they kept thile locals going all the timec. The resnlts of the meeting therefore was a remarkably fast ;and vigor. ous galmec, marked by splendidly dashing runs, superb high marking and scicentiic passing. In general play the visitors ltcld their own, but FIootscray's back division was alhost impregnable. Titne after litne by means of clever football Ports invadedl Footscray territory but with what, to thetn, must have been monotonous regularity the solid line represcnting the tricolors, not only beat off the attack but passed on to either Clarke or Bricse, who invariably picked out Banbury. The latter, ill turn, dodged the Portonian defenders and thlus Port's efforts were nullified and in a htice almost they found themselves endeavor...

OOLLEOTING THE RENT. JUSTICES SANCTION NEW MlETHOD. "No man is entitled to take an other's goods except by legal proce dure" remarked Mr W. Brocket at -Monday's court in a case in which C. H. McNeil, represented by Mr Brocket, proceeded against L. J. Murphy for the illegal detention of a clock. Mr Secomb appeared for defendant. The evidence for the complainant was to the effect that she rented a house at nIo Nicholson street from defendant, paid a week in advance and left before the week was up. Defendant claimed a week's rent and seized her clock. Mr W. Mitchell, J.P.-Surely complainant should have given a week's notice ? Mr Brocket-That is not the ques tion. Defendant has no right to seize anyone's goods except under a distressv warrant. Mr Secomb-We say that we are not detaining the clock illegally.

GARDEN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 May 1914
GARDEV NOHOT&W By MR ED. GRiY. Subscriber asks-"Could you let me know the most effective means of getting rid of wood lice, which are eating down my plants in glass house 7" Reply-I find that the most effec tive way of getting rid of these pests is to scald them in their haunts with boiling water. I would advise you to first get ready a kettle full of boil ing water, then carefully lift each pot and dash the water on them, be fore they have time to escape. 'l'hey will usually be found under the pots. and it would be well to pour the water into any crevices likely to be a lurking place for others. This treat ment should be carried out whenever there is any indication of their pres ence. If you wish to lay traps for them, get some potatoes, cut them in halves, scoop a hollow in the cut side, and turn them cut side down wards on the shelves among the pot plants. Examine these every morn ing, and destroy the insects, which will be found in the hollow parts of the potatoes. Slice...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 9 May 1914
It is expected that within the next two or three weeks Messrs McCarthy and Inderwood will present their re bort regarding the proposed tramway etween Essendon and Williamstown, ,via Footscray. Ills figures, and recom inendations will be awaited with inter est and when the report is forthcoming it is to be hoped that the councils con cerned will lose no time in obtaining legislative authority to construct the tramway. This will not bind them to proceed'with the project but will give them the power to do so if they can arouse sufficient enterprise to venture into it fold of progress that has been exploited with signal success in suburbs the other side of Melbourne. In addi tion it will prevent a private company securing the route and the scheme would be in such a stage that on the inevitable formation of some central tramway authority it would he adopted and carried on by that body. It is rather amusing to read that a repro sentative of our contemporary, which has agitated for the con...

SOCCER. Northumberland and Durham entertained St Kdda on the Park ground last Saturday and were defeated, 4 goals to n. The visi tors are a heavy .ide and the light N. and D. forwards could not make any impression while the defence was not able to hold the St. Kilda fotwards. Owing to players being, for various reasons, unable to turn out three ncw men were seen in the home team, but the visitors were clearly the better team all through. . Robinson played his usual splen did game in goal, and scored innumerable shots is fine form ; while J. Thompson and D. leffrey played well in defence. Thh Reserves played Footscray Thistle at Seddon and wvent down by the same margin as the seniors, vil., 4-0, The two substi tules (for men taken to play with the seniors) played very creditably.
