Tennis. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
Tennis, The WVattle Glen tennis club held a handicap tournament on December 23 and 26. On Saturday, 23rd ult., the weather was perfect for tennis, though a sharp shower about noon held up play for an hour, However, by using both courts, the fixtures for the day were completed in good time. Squally conditions on Boxing Day de layed play frequently. Entries were received from the Diamond Creek, Hurstbridge and Kangaroo Ground clubs, yet wminning honours, in- the three 'sections-gents', ladies, and mixed doubles-went to the Wattle Glen club, Many interesting sets were plaped, but in some cases the handicaps proved too severe. After. noon tea was provided by the home club, and on both days a pleasant time was spent by the tennis enthu siasts of the district. Results : First Round (Dec. 23). Misses M. and E.

TROGLODYTES OF TO-DAY. FRENCHMEN WHO LIVE IN CAVES [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
TROGLODYTES OF TO-DAY. -4-e-- FRENCHMEN WHO LIVE IN CAVES In prehistoric times, when man had to fight with wild beasts not only for food but for very 'life, he found a welcome refuge-in grottos and cav erns. But as soon : as humanity had achieved some degree of progress in civilisation our ancestors forsook these primitive natural shelters for more comfortable dwellings. Our readers, therefore, doubtless imagine that the "Troglodyte" ceased to exist many centuries ago, at any rate in Europe. Yet even to-day there may be found Frenchmen who live underground, only a few hun dred kilometers from Paris. The most celebrated villages of this sort are those of Bourre and of Chissey (indre' and Loire), of Bran tome and of the Eyzies (Dordogne). A part of these poverty-stricken populations, in fact, inhabits caverns which obtain their supply of air partly by the broad chimneys cut in the rock, and whose openings, on is suing from the hill, form a pictur esque alinement. It usually happens th...

THE SAFE SNEEZE. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
THE SAFE SNEEZE. ---9--- A sneeze is simply the expulsion of wind through the nose, but it effects many things. It has lately proved to be a cure for and preventive of adenoids. It is also the recognised preventive of the comzmor. cold and the deadly influenza plagno. -The germs of these diseases lodge in the nose and throat. i nose breathing is indulged in as it should be, then the nose will be the main channel of access for the bacilli to the system. They will lodge in the secretions of the nasal orifices, and sn:ezing will expel them. Hence let sneezing, be encouraged, 'but see that -the sneeze is accompan ied by the 'use of a handkerchief, otherwise the air and others who breathe it will become infected. Sneezing is more effective than mere nose-blowing. It is nature's way of accomplishing a purging task. r-
Eltham. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
Eltham. (FnoQs oUR. CORRESPoNDENT). The passing of the old aikthe ushering in of the new year was duly celebrated in.Eltham. A. special delight seemed.to be takenr in making as much noise as possible; yet no ohe seemed to care very much. The firing of guns, rattling of tins, ring ing of bells, and the tune of "Auld Lang Syne" welcomed the new year. If weather conditions were taken as a criterion, then surely a joyous year might be expected. The festivities -continued until the wee sma hours,' and thus a new year dawned. The Hail Committee held a very enjoyable and successful dance on Saturday evening. . Miss Goldian supplied the music, Mr A. Gollings being M.C. A good attendance and good floor materially- added, to the attractions of the, evening. .The holiday spirit made.. things pleasant "for those in attendance, and everyone ,did his share ' in this respect. The function closed. with the sinu in of "Auld-Lang Syne." In my last report in, coniiction with the recent .fete heild *by...
FREAK SHIPS. EXTRAORDINARY VESSELS. THAT HAVE BEEN BUILT. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
FiEAK siIPS. ----- E' XTRAOrlITElARY VESSELS. THAT .AVE BEEN BUILT. Since the memorable .day long ago when o-r rude forefathers fitrt ten nured aSoat in their dug-out canoes many very curious' ships ha* been juilt. Pcrhnaps the most'extraordin ary of all these freaks was the stea mer Connector, which 'was launched in. 1863. 'frte Connector was built in three sections, each of which was, so to speak, a ship of itself. The bow,. or forward section, which was fitted up in the usual way, was joined to the midship section by means of a huge bolt in such' a manner that, as the ship pitched, it could rise or fall quite independently of the otherz two sections. Thus, as the ship met the waves a kind of "wriggle" ran along the hull. First the bow section rose. then the midship section followed suit and finally the stern section wriggled upwards: The craft passed safely through some very severe trials, and even ventured out in heavy weather. The idea was to build, up ships in sec tions like t...

Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
Thoughts. (Br MERNDA). We are at the beginning of 1923, and it has struck me that it would be wise of us to take stock of our work during the past year and ask ourselves the question: Have we tried to better the world in which we live, or have we.-oa the contrary. let it drift on the downward track ? No doubt we Aus - tralians are a pleasure-loving people, and I am afraid at times liable to allow our plea sures to mar what is our obvious duty'in the world. I do. not think for one moment our Creatormerant us to have no pleasure in the world, but he intended our ple-tsures to be' rational, and not detrimental to the sterner duties of life. IThe,traffic on the" W'hittlesea road during the holidays has bee, very great, motor cars-by the hundred, lorries, buggies, spring carts, waggons, jinkers--i fact vehicles.of all kinds, filled mostly with happy-looking,. care-free folk, all on pleasure bent. Now and. then, a party passes whose pleasure is doubtful, especially 'thie :morning after tl...

Bear's Castle. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 January 1923
Bear's ,Castle. People who attend the Yan Yeau monster picnic every New Year's Day are fond of relating little bits of the distant past, if not within their own recollection, then something which their fathers have.told them. A comparatively young man (he was born in the early sixties) was telling the story of' "Bear's Castle." He said it came to pass in the days be fore the waters of the Yan Yean, in 1853, supplied the inhabitants of the City of Melbourne with water, that - big owner of land in the person of Air T. Bear came to reside within a mile and a half of where the crowd was then standing. Now the said -wner had much land, some of which was in New South Wales, and he had occasion to make a twelve months' visit to. that State. The man in charge, fearing he would not find ufficient to keep him employed dur ing that period (quite different to the presrnt-day~ man who is left in charge), inquired what he would do. The owner then looked around, and in a casual way, re'plied "Oh, ...

The- Panton Hill branch of tihe R S.S.I.L.A. was unfortunate in strik ing wet and boisterous weather oai Boxing Day for their annual sports held in the Memorial Park, but as it takes more than rain to spoil men of that calibre they determined to carry on in the face of a poor attendarce, as was indicated at one o'clock. How ever, later in the afternoon weather conditions improved, and the people attended -to the number of about 500; but the caterers were naturally disap: pointed. _ The programme of events was in teresting. as evidenced by the close finishes,' which was the best testimony of good handicapping, and.
