EXTENSION LECTURES VICTOUTAX SCENERY. A lecture on "Victorian Scenery" was given by Dr. Pritchard in the Ilaptist School Hall, Footscray, on Thursday week. It was the third of the University Bxtension Lectures in Footscray. Dr. Pritchard took for his subject scenery from the geological and edu cational aspects rather than the pic turesque—How what we call scenery is formed rather than what it looks like. The lecturer- started with the Yarra itself, showing it in its primi tive slate of the early settlement, and contrasting it with its appear ance to-day at Queen's Bridge—an example of the effect of man's work in alteration of scenery.

A TREE AS A BELL TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly News — 8 August 1914

A-TREE AS A BELL TOWER. What is probably the" nuaintesf bell tower, in the world is still standing in the suburbs of the American city of Tacoma. A little wooden edifice, now St. PeterVChapel, was built, almost in a night, many years ago, and standing beside the chapel was a magnificent fir tree, three hundred or more years old. The topmost branches wero cut off. j leaving the trunk, forty feet high. . smooth and shapely. On the top of this a bell tower was built, surmounted by a cross. A short ladder reaches from rnof to tower. The bell-ringer need not ascend the tower to sound the call to worship: a rope is attached, by means of which the bell may be rung from the ground. For uiauv years the trunk of this tree was a mass of liriifg ivy, which ncvei. i lost its colour throughout the year. English ivy, which thrives in that moist climate, was planted about the church. ' and trained to grow through the y.in dows and spaces left for it, until the whole interior was more or less dccor ...
