What Do You Want? [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 March 1914
What Do You Want? Do you want a crown ? Oh! take the one Which Jesus wore for you; That crown of thorns Which His own blood With crimson did bedew. Do you want a throne? SOh! choose the cross Where Jesus died in pain, For all the world is only dross If you this throne may gain. Do you want a home ? Fly to His heart And find true shelter there. For He alone can rest impart, As Calvary you share. Do you want a life? First seek in death The right to win your claim He bought it with His latest breath Then take it in His name. CHATTERTON Dix.

An Unnamed Street. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 March 1914
An Unnamed Street. From Upper to Lower Esplanade. By the erection of Luna Park and the Palais de Danse, a new street has been formed from the St. Kilda Esplanade towards the sea shore. Whether it is because the street in question has not yet been given a name, or whether it is because some people refuse to recognise it as a street at all, the fact remains that several motorists have been.charged before the local Court with driving on the wrong side in the unnamed street without justifiable cause. As already indicated, the new street runs between Luna Park and the Palais de Danse. It hasn'i a name. sad therefore stands a chance of having no lawful visible means of support! It is a vagrant amongst streets, and it is therefore up to the St, Kilda Council to do a kindly act by giving it a name at the earliest oportunrty. A splendid chance is hee given for one of the city fathers ! have his name immortalised by iaving the street named after him. his an honor that anyone should covet. In ...
Two Stubborn Councils. Meet Same Night. Neither Will Give Way. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 March 1914
Two Stubborn Councils. Meet Same Night. Neither Will Give Way. It has come about that the St. Kilda and Prahran Councils now meet on the same evenings every fortnight. Formerly they used to meet alternately on Monday ever angs. To local newspapers and their representatives this clashing of the Prahran and St. Kilda councils by meeting on the same evening is a source of inconvenience and expense, not to mention annoyance. Each council, in view of the coming Easter holidays, and through its chief executive officer, has been asked to return to the usual system of meet ing alternately, but the reply has come back point blank, sharp, and with sledge hammer force, " NO !" How those two councils do seem to love one another! Talk about amal gamation ! Ugh ! They are like stubborn school children, and sooner than "kiss and make it up" they would be more inclined, in their present moods, to turn on their heels and walk to the opposite and extreme ends of the earth! Each Council claims that it...
