H. V. M'KAY STAFF SOCIAL [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924

H. V. IM'KAY STAFF SOCIAL A very happy time was spent at a social evening held in the Shire Hall on Thursday, 7th inst., when the staff of HI-. V. M'Kay Ptly. Ltd. gathered with their friends. The hall was most artis tically decorated with georgeous hot house plants and ferns which had been loaned from the Sunshine Gardens, and gay streamers, baJloons and shaded lights helped to supplement the effect, and transformed the sombre hall. Everything was done to provide enjoy ment for all, and thbse who had brought their jazz sliplErs had good music to aid them and give ease to their jaded soles. Several excellent musical items and humorous monologues were given, of which there was due appreciation judging by the applause which is :;s balm to the soul of the artist. A euchre tournament was held upstairs for those who did not wish to dance, and whilst the attraction of the jazz was strong in the majority, still there were sufficient devotees of the card tables to make the urizes keenly con...

HMETROPOLITAN BOARD OF WORKS. At the council meeting of Braybrook Shire on Monday it was announced that at last Brayl)rook had got representa tion on the above Board, after years of fruitless endeavor. This and the four n Aighboring -hires, Dulla, 3Brore meadows, Werr'ibee and Keilor, cikct one represen tative. Criticism is being levelled at the above body for its dilatory methods, and neglect of the corporation to ex tLead the utilities it controls to the outer suburbs. There are 20,000 houses in the metropolitan area still u·!nconnected with the sewer. Some time ago it was proposed to authorise the Board to build the Spencer street bridge. What will happen, and when will the bridge be built if it deals with it in the same way that it has dealt with other important matters given to it by Parliament? Here are some of them: Nightsoil.-Bill passed about two years ago; nothing done; practically allowed to lapse. Main Drains and Streams Bill.--Bill passed about a year ago; the Board ask...

Deer Park v. Bacchus Marsh [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924

Deer Park v. Bacchus Marsh In showery weather the return match between the clubs was played on the Deer Park ground last Saturday. The attendance was very fair. During the early stages of the game Bacchus Marsh proved their superiority by some brilliant all round play, and at the end of the first quar- ter had scored 4.3 to nil. With the slight breeze now in their favor the home team came with a wonderful rally, and for a time had their opponents fairly baffled. Col Anderson, playing a dashing game, was easily the best man for his side, his high marking and accurate kicking being very noticeable. P. Harrison on the centre line was also putting in some good work. The latter half of the game was more evenly contested that the first, and the ball was kept travelling from end to end without either side being able to gain much advantage. A heavy shower came on during the last quarter, and greatly inter- fered with the play, but taken all through both teams gave a good exhibition. When th...

HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924

HOME GARDENING. By "Heather Jock," Ini Sunshine we have colditionlb ideal for a very live body of horticul turalists. We have an openly laid out Lown, growing by leaps and bounids, with almost every house hav ing sullicient land to carry out a fair and useful garden. The soil goner ally speaking is well adapted for growing a good variety of plants, and exceptionally well adapted for some varieties. The only objectionable fella ture against it for gardening is that it gets more than its fair share of heavy winds, and in some quarters, where shelter from these is not yet existent, it is somewhat discouraging. Apart from that there is no reasoll why every householder in our little town should not have his little ga'r den, producing flowers to beautify his home, and thereby bring comfort and content to its inmates. Further, to produce a supply of wholesome vege tables, which are much more palat able than those which cost money to procure. One may contend that it is too much trotrble; bu...

G. MOCHRIE'S CABINET WORKS Thriving Sunshine Industry [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924

G. MOCHRIE'S CABINET WORKS Thriving Sunshine industry When you read ornate advertise- ments about ice chests or office furni- ture you do not take the trouble to think that hehind the great city firm's retail store is the factory which pro-   duces the goods. Mr. G. Mochrie about four years ago started in business in Sunshine in a room 18 x 12. He was a joiner and cabinet maker, and pro- gressed so well that he removed into       better premises in the main street. Eighteen months ago, as a result of   the serious conflagration in Hamp- shire road, his plant and stock went up in smoke, but the present factory was then erected and operations were   started in what is perhaps one of the most up-to-date and ideal joinery fac- tories in Australia. The building is very extensive and lofty, well lighted and ventilated on the louvre pri- ciple, and is an excellent workshop in every respec. A suction plant is also...

Newmarket Stock Yards [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 23 August 1924

Newmarket Stock Yards Strong representations were made to the new ]?reieIicr recntlvy by an influential deputation to secure the removal of the Newmarket stock yards to some other site. Mr. Henry Schwieger, secretary of the Chamber of Agriculture, states that a fresh movemcnft is now being launched to secure the removal of the yards to a more suitable location. "There are no valid objections to our proposal," he said, "except on the score of expense, but since the change must be made sooner or later, the sooner it is made the less will be the expense. Everybody acknow ledges the desirability of a change except a few vested interests, which can hardly be expected to accede to a proposal. "Conditions at the Newmarket yards are very bad indeed, and are becom ing worse, Thie'Railway Department is unable to give satisfactory service to the breeders, owing to the awk ward lay out and consequent conges tion; stock is subjected to harassing treatment and handling just prior to slaughter; th...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 23 August 1924

POULTRY NOTES, ----- By "Tight Feather." At this time of the year and for the next two or three months there will be a big demand for eggs for hatching and day-old chicks and ducklings. This is a trade of which one hears n lot of complaints about, and doubtl!css both buyers and sellers are at times to blame. The big majority of poultry-keepers are those who keep a few fowls to sui)pply the home with fresh eggs tand an occasional chicken or ducikli;ng. 11ut, while that is the primary object, they also desire a pure-bred fowl of some well-k.nown strain. For the poultry-keepers of to-day are realising the fact that, even if only a few fowls are kept, the best utility birds cost no more to keel) than the inferior ones. So they send for sittings of eggs or' for day-old youngsters, and expect, fresh eggs of good size and shape and free from any toughness of. shell. Now, while the eggs may look right., they may fail to hatch. and one hears mllany complaints on the score of not hatching. Th...
