FOOTBALL. MURTOA v. WARRACKNABEAL. HOME TEAM DEFEATED. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
FOOTBALL. MURTOA v. WARRACKNABEAL. " HOME TEAM DEFEATED. The glory of the red-and-whites has evidently departed from Murtoa, judging by the half-hearled manner in which they commenced this season. The club entered for the district trophy as a matter of course, but enthusiasm was lacking, training was neglected, and the team had to be picked just before the match was played on Wednesday, where upon Jack Brady was chosen as captain and Percy Sprake as vice-captain. 1 There was a good following of sup porters from Warracknabeal by special train, and as it was a delightful after noon, with no wind to interfere with the play, there was a good attendance of spectators to witness our first match of the season. Mr. J. Murphy, League umpire, had charge of the field, and gave entire satisfaction, his decisions being strict and impartial. The visitors felt confident of success on this occa sion, after having received so many drubbings at Murtoa, and their hopes were fully justified, as the mar...

He Was Called. 1 A commercial traveller who had business in a small town recently was detained longer than ha expect ed, and, missing the last train for the south, w'as forced to put up at a local hotel for tho night.

Tho "boots," a solemn, long-faccd individual, faithfully promised to obey his request, and as the clock struck six tho following morning, truo to his word, opened tho bedroom door. Tho occupant of tho had was still asleep.

Discounting Racecourse Winnings. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914
Discounting Racecourse Winnings. 1. ! A curious kind of discount business is carried on in connection with the French "Pari-Mutuel" system of bet ting on the racecourse. It should be explained that those who wish to bet on a French racecourse have to take a ticket for five, . ten, or fifty francs at one of the offices of the "Puri-Mutuel." Each ticket is numbered, and the . number corres ponds with t)ie number of the horso; so that, in asking for a ticket, one simply asks for No. So-and-So. The names and numbers of the horses, as well as those of the joc keys, are sltown on a large hoard before ths start. After the start no more betting is allowed. When the race is finished tho money is counted, and all the money .placed on the losing horses is divided among tho winners in their proper propor tion, the administration taking a percentage for expenses and tax; It will be easily seen, therefore, that when your horse has won, you are alyays in a delightful state of .uncertainty as to ho...

JERUSALEM. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914
JERUSALEM.. 1 Very shortly the sacred streots of the Holy City will lium with the noise ■ of electric cars, and its more important thoroughfares will be illuminated at night with the 1 brilliant electric filament. Its old picturesque walls and massive towers are to be pulled down, and the city is to have an adequate water supply. I Tho rapidity with which Jerusa lem is extending, through the return of the Jews in such large numbers ' to the city of their forefathers, has (says an "Express" correspondent) rendered these improvements neces sary.: Indeed,. J,o~.the north and west of the old city thero have sprung up, within the last decade, large Jcw'ish colonies, populous residential sections, as well as convents, hos pices, institutions, schools, and other buildings, with tho result that ! to-day there is a greater Jerusalem without tho walls than within. Four separate tramway routes are ; to bo laid down. They will all | start from tho Jaffa Gate, the prin I cipal entranco from tho ...
