DEMONSTRATION IN THE SIGNAL BOX. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

DEMONSTRATION IN THE SIGNAL BOX. After a demonstration in the signal i box the party travelled back to Boivral. IV:o object of the signal box demonstra- j tion was to show the perfection of the signalling system, and how, for instance, it is impossible for the distant signal to stand at "Clear" while the home_ signal is at "Danger." Considerable dissatis- j faction was expressed by more than . one of the party at the results of the test. Tthe startling discovery •was made that when the home signal was set at danger j the distant signal was partly off, and nigHt would show a green light. The j driver of the mail train had stated that the distant signal was off, and ihe ac cordingly ran through, only to discover too late that the home signal was against him.

Mr. Moreton, who appeared in the interests of the lad Walker, who was killed, stepped into the witness box and applied for a jury, stating that he considered it was in the public interest that such a course should be followed.

ELLERSLIE SPORTS. SUCCESSFUL, MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

ELLERSUE SPORTS. SUCCESSFUL, MEETING. St. Patrick's Day was worthily celebrated at Ellerslie on Tuesday when the annual sports meeting eventuated. The weather was de lightful, and a very large gather ing was present. The programme was materially altered from that of last year, in that instead of cycling events, which do not appear to be as popular as they were, a number of horse trots and novelty events were substituted. The alteration was responsible for a very fine entry, whilst the onlookers follow ed every event with unabated in terest. The horse races were un registered, consequently there were no "star" performers, and almost every horse was of equal merit. Therefore the results were in variably in doubt till the winning horse passed the judge's box. If the Recreation committee could secure an adjacent paddock of larger circumference the races would be much better, as the horses would have more room to stretch themselves, as to a certain extent, they were cramped in trotting a...

THE LIMITS OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

THE LIMITS OF SPORT. Let not your recreations be lavish Bpenders of your time, but choose Euch which are healthful, short, tran sient, recreative, and apt to refresh you; but at no hand dwell in them 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.
