The meeting came off, 1 believe, and was a great success, andi the sympathisers so numerous and liberal that 400, all told (vide "BAr gus'"), subscribed the muagnificent sum of three pounds and six pence Sto alle viate the wants of the poor distressed victim of landlordism. Now, MIr. Edi tor, there are two sides to every ques tion. and as the ease was so ably and eloquently put by Tuesday night's ora tors, perhaps you may give me the op portunity to give those misguided ones who only hear one side of the story, my version.

The solid bluestone Church in Gra ham-street, Port Melbourne, which is being attended by the third genera tion of worshippers since its founda tion, entered upon a week's celebra tion of the attainment of its Diamond Jubilee onl Sunday last. If its por tals had only been animated how many stories of patient effort and un wearying love in the service of the Master they might have told to the congregations as they paused awhile there before crowding in to the in terior; how many matrons might they have reminded of the day. when in the flush of happy youth-in the very spring-time of life-they entered as brides a-trembling on the dawn of a new era in their lives; how many sturdy men in-the prime of life-aye, and greybeards, too!--might they have told of the day when they were borne within in fond maternal arms to receive the names they would henceforth bear as members of the church; and how many, alas I migh...

Notes. - II. Danks made his reappebarance ., and -was one of the very few who played h good game. - .IKin. he "tnew plaver fromn Fitz-. roy, was tried on the hailf-back line, and was not too prominent; but as it. is known he has football in him, it is expected he will show improved play in his second trial: The neatest bit of play of the day was that between Merrick and Mar-. shall in the last qnuarter. These two players working well to one another broughlt the ball from past the cen tre to right forward by fine marking, and tile latter wound up by kicking a fine goal. W. Carden was again the main stay of the half-back line., His nmarking was good and clean; and R. F'ranklin was also responsible for somte timely marks. The Williamstown centre line had the bIetter of the deal, and from the wings a lot of the 'Town's goals canle. The 'Town's best players were Reitman, Amy, IMcDonald, CGibbs (al-.-. though perihatps rather dirty). Alley. Wallis, and M'Taggart. "Dookie" McKenzie has bee...

But tie cult of the flower engerilers quite a:train of blessings that pertain to the pursuit of the arts of peace, and is in its humble way of value in the sum of a nation's civic cbn tentmenuct. It niecessitates the spend ini' of a goodly portion of time in what the poet has termed "God's great 'out-of-doors;" it induces hab its of order and regularity; it affords exercise of great or small degree; and it entails, as of a necessity,.a love of the pure and beautiful.

NEED OF A CRECHE. To the Editor of the "Standard." Sir,--Although not blessed with an abundance of this world's -goods, 1 should like to endorse your attitude with regard to a chleche in l'ort Mel bourne. The ideals of the Labor party in such matters are well known. I am not going to quarrel with them; all I have to say is that they are impractical at the present time, and are likely to remain so for some time to come. It is all very well to say that the Government should care for the children while Smothers are away at work; or that the children shoild bie boarded out to their own mothers with increased al lowance to the latter. '1'This deside ratioiin will, I believe, Ie attained withlin reasonable time; but that does not get over the creche difficulty. No self-respecting woman desires to bie maintained by the State because Nature has bestowed a child upon her and the father has died, or proved a scoundrel and cleared out. And, again, we are faced with a so called Liberal governme...
