Ono seos it at its best among the women of the people. One of these, a woman, many years a widow, who had always . worked hard' and " kept herself re spectable," was talking of her only son, a. stoker in the Navy. It was, just aftor the war began, and his ship was in. "the North* Sea. Some oflicious friond had" boon rubbing it into her that, as he was unmarried, she ought to draw his pay in his absence.

W.ONTHAGGI ASSOCIATION. THE FINAL MATCHES. SOUTH DUDLEY PREMIERS. The cricket season was terminated locally on Saturday last, and after an interesting and exciting competition throughout between the three leading teams, resulted in the South Dudley representatives landing the premier- > ship. The win wasindeed ameritorious one, and the Dudley knights of the willow are to be congratulated upon their splendid achievement. La3t year the Ramblers maintained thoir good reputation and succeeded in winning the premiership, hut this season they found their friendly opponents of Dud ley too solid a combination, ami had to be content with second position after a splendidly fought-out contest from beginning to end of the season. St. Joseph's, who occupied third pisition, were in close proximity to the Ram blers, and are to be commended upon the many creditable performances they have invariably displayed, while the North Wonthaggi representatives, al though they only managed to lower the col...

BLOWING UP A BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 7 May 1915

BLOWING UP A BRIDGE. The, efforts of tlie Germans to pre serve a bridge of some strategic im portance in tlie neighbourhood of Czenstoehowa were foiled by the enter prise and daring of four men of a Kuban Cossack rugimeut. Elaborate precautious had been taken to guard .the approaches to the bridge. .First a heavy chain, at which sentries were posted, had to be passed.- further back was a barricade, and at the actual bridgehead a numerous detachment was entrenched. . Stealing up to the chain in the dark ness of the night, the Cossacks cut down the sentries with swil't and in stantly fatal strokes of their daggers. They then crept down to the river's edge,.silently entered the water, and swam out to the wooden supports of the bridge. With some difficulty they climbed on to a cross-beam, fixed their blasting cartridge, and ignited the -fuse. That done, they swam back to the shore and waited for the explosion. As this did not occur they realised that something had goue^ wrong with, thei...

ST. JOSEPH'S v. RAMBLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 7 May 1915

ST. JOSEPH'S v. RAMBLERS. As might have been expected under the existing circumstances the above match, which was played on the Won thaggi Sports Ground wicket, ended in a draw. Sufficient time is not allotted to conclude even a one-innings match in one afternoon, more especially when two strong batting teams are to try conclusions together. Matches should be of two days' duration to give either side an equal chance, and if the Asso ciations again displays wisdom and decides on such a conclusion right through the season nsxt year, it will not only tend to promote public in terest in the game, but the result, generally speaking, will certainly be more satisfactory to the different teams participating in the competition. The above match is ample evidence that one afternoon is altogether too inadequate to conclude an important fixture. Batting first. St. Joseph's occupied the encases for the greater part of the afternoon, and put up the remarkably fine score of 151 runs. Out of this nu...
