ANALYST'S CHARGES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 16 May 1914

'le desired the appointment of public analyst to the council, arid stated that his charges were 21/- for each group of three samples representing one thousand head of'population; average 7/ per sample.

DOGS IN THE PARK. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 16 May 1914
I)OGS IN TILE P'A I~i, -- -'---- To the Editor of THlE AMIVITI' SI.R. Sir, -Recently I paid a visit to the increasingly popular Footacrey Park, and as one who has not seen it for somen considerable time I was, of course, struck with the excellent progress made through the effQrts of the committee of citizens working with the object of im proving one of Footscray's most valu able assets. But might I suggest to the committee, through the medium of your valuable journal, to prohibit dogs being allowed into the park unless on a chain at least. The park on Sunday mornings seem to be the rendezvous of men and boys with dogs. These dogs are doing considerable damage to the new flower beds by scratching about in them, and acts directly against the good work done by the committee. There is plenty of room across the river where these cours ing dogs could be exercised without be coming a nuisance. Yours, &c., SEDDONIAN. Seddon, 6/5114.

I should like to know how many of those planted last year have perished through neglect. Cr Fielding-There is rock, un suitable soil, and other things to contend with. 'Cr Johnson-Nothing will grow in Yarraville, I know.
