SBRISBANE TOURNAMENT. L. WAXMAN (VIC.) WINS SINGLE HANDED CHAMPIONSHIP. The final for the single-handed championship was decided at Brisbane. on Monday, when the victor truned up in L. Waxman, one of the backbones of the Armadale Club. The runner-up was another Victorian, in the person of F. J. Cornish, of the M.C.C. In the final, Waxman beat Cornish by 31 to 10. According to a telegraphed report an incident of a peculiar nature hap pened in the sixth round. It was at the match between Cornish, of.

When Cornish had bowled his last bowl in the final end Colledge lay two, and had won the match. Cornish turned round to congratulate his opponent, who put down his last bowl before shaking hands.

AMUSEMENTS THE. DANDIES. * Arcadia, where the Dandies have been performing so successfully dur ing the-summer season, has been con verted into a covered theatre, and is very largely attended in consequence of the comfort assured, despite any in clemency of the weather that might exist.

Bowling. BY BOWLER. Easter week has been a busy and interesting time for bowlers practi cally right throughout the chief cities of the Commonwealth. In Victoria, we have had the cream of the country bowlers in the metro polis, trying conclusions amongst themselves. In Brisbane they have been holding high carnival, the finals for the single handed championship of* Australia being fought out under conditions that were at once exciting and unique. In Victoria, too, many clubs have sent teams to some other, district to meet the local club; whilst'other clubs have held, stay at home tournaments. :-Malvern-Caulfield met a team from Benalla, and beat the visitors by 17. An Alma three-rink team sent Fitz roy and East Melbourne to the right about by a majority of five, the scores being:--Alma, 79; .'itzroy and East Melbourne, 74.

The Right Sort of Citizen. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 18 April 1914

Perhaps no other city in the Commonwealth can claim the possession of so many public bene factors amongst its residents as St. Kilda, This favored seaside commu. nity has men in its midst who live not for themselves; their aim is to do the greatest good to the greatest number. In several ways there is living evidence of this. To just mention two or three of the more recent benefactions to the city. Mr Stenhouse has acted a noble part, At his own expense he has estab. lished life saving stations on the foreshore, and a later act of his is to promise to contribute towards the cost-a thousand pounds or more of placing a statue of Captain Cook on the Beaconsfield Parade.
