The annual demonstration of the Country Fire Brigades Board com menced this evening, when the torchlight procession, which is a preliminary to the contests, took place.

FIRE-BELL FUND. £12/10 STILL REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 March 1914

FIRE-BELL FUND. ♦ i"12/10 STILL REQUIRED. Notwithstanding- the vigorous ringing of the school bell during the early hours of Saturday morn ing for an alarm of fire, only a mere handful of citizens responded to the call. There were numbers of people; living within a stone throw of the bell, yet the alarm was not strong enough to cause them to wake from their slumber. No more striking evidence of the great need for a fire bell that will be heard in all parts of the town could be needed to show how in capable is the present means of giving out an alarm. Had the fire at Mr. Goodall's Factory- beeu of a serious nature, there would scarcely have" been more than twenty helpers, whilst the rest of inhabitants would have known uothing of the great damage that was being wrought. And all through the want of an efficient fite-bell. The effort, commenced in our columns a couple of issues ago, appealing for donations to wards buying a bell, has been well responded to so far, £l 10s being received...

(1GV A PRISONER WAS RESCUE& A Clever'Ruts. Tn tbe battle of Poitiers, 1856, a number of Scottish soldiers fought on the sitfe of the French, and sevwral ot them were taken prisoners by the Eng. lisfc. Amongst them was Sir Archi bald Douglas, half-brother of Lord Wil liam Douglas. Being dressed in a suit of splendid armor, the victors thought they bad captured— as Indeed they had —some great nobleman. Several of the English were about to strip ©ff his armor, when Sir William Ramsay, of Colluthie, who was also a prisoner, happening to catch Sir Archibald's eye, gave him a meaning look. Pre tending to be very angry he cried out: "You rascal, how is it that you are wearing your master's armor? Coat here and pull off my boots." Douglas, seemingly thoroughly cow ed, went humbly forward and drew off a boot, with which Sir William began to beat him. The English onlookers at once inter fered on Douglas's behalf, saying that be was a person of great rank and a lord. "What!" shouted Ra...

THE LIMITS OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 March 1914

THE LIMITS OF SPORT. Let not your recreations be lavish apenders of your time, but choose such which are healthful, F^iort, tran sient, recreative, and apt ;.o refresh you; but at no haud dwell in then or make them your great employment, for he that spends his time in sports and calls it recreation is like him whose garment is all made of fringes and his meat nothing but sauces; they are healthless, chargeable, and use less. And, therefore, avoid such games which require much time or long at tendance. or which are apt to steal the affections from more severe em ployments.

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY Local and General News [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 March 1914

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11. Published Wednesday and Saturday Local and General News Mr. M. JL Phillips, chief president of the Australian Natives' Association in installing the new office-bearers of the Australian Women's Association, in Mel bourne, said there were several problems ihead of friendly societies. One was the question of social insurance, and another was the difficulties with the medical officers. He was hopeful that the latter difficulty would be overcome by confer ences between the Friendly Societies' Association and the medical men. The wage limit seemed to strike at the whole root of friendly society work, and the societies could not go so far as the doctors proposed. As a result of the excessively dry sea son, combined with the destructive agency of the wire worm, it is reported, the Penshurst potato crops have failed, in many instances being hardly worth the expense of digging. All producers along the' Gheringhap Marooua line will be interested in the fact...

DEATH OF DR. W. F. SWEETNAM. : * HONORED CAREER CLOSES, The sad message was received yesterday evening that Dr. W. F. Sweetnam had passed t away in Melbourne that afternoon. The. re ^'gretfiiV news was not unexpected, as for some days his intimate friends held but very little : hope.of his recovery. Several months ago Dr. Sweetnam suffered from a severe attack of in . fluenza, the effects of which He never fully re covered from, although he was able to pursue his professional duties with the same energy and 00 ...vigor that characterised his life. During Decern . ber he became verj' unwell and decideH to take a holiday, \yith the hope of recuperating. He visited Tasmania, but after being there only ;i few dnvs became ill and he returned to Victoria, where he was placed under Dr. M'Keddie's care.. He made a good recovery and in January he returned home to Mortlake. But, alas, it was only for a few days, as he again became ill and had tp return to Melbourne for treatment. Since then h...

The final match in connection with the Teraug district pennant competition was played at Mortlake on Saturday last between the Noo rat and Mortlake teams. Mortlake having a lead of two points in the , competition, Noorat had to secure a win outright in order to secure I the premiersnip. They made a great effort to secure the necessary j four points, but failed ; time being ' called with Mortlake having but I one wicket to fall and wanting 28 ' runs to win. A most exciting! match therefore ended in a draw, which places Mortlake at the top of the list in the competition with a lead of two points over the Noo rat club. The system of one daj matches observed in the competi- | tion has proved anything but satis factory, as is shown by the fact that Cobrico, although . winning one more match than either Noo rat or Mortlake, finish at the bot tom of the list.

As she passed, he called out, 'Til send you a brace of ducks to-night," and went on his way. But the ducks were wild indeed that day, or Mr. B. was a bad shot, for at night he> returned home with only two snipex£or his bag. Remembering his promise'to Mrs. S„ and not wishing that she should know how unsuccess ful he had been, he called his '"boy," and told him to go to the market, buy a. pair of ducks, and leave them at the house of Mrs. S., with his compliments. Two weeks afterwards he received an invitation to lunch there, and be fore he left his hostess took occasion to thank him for his present. "They are lovely ducks.
