FOOTBALL. The District Premiership. Keen Struggles with Sensational Finishes. Umpires Fail Badly. Bad Feeling Prevails. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
FOIOTBALLI The District Premier ship. Keen Struggles with Sensational Finishes. Umpires Fail Badly. Bad Feeling Prevails. Last Saturday's football matches brought about a bad feeling among competing teams for the district premiership. Everything had been progressing well, but a turning point has arrived; we hope not to stay. Both games last Saturday were fought strenuously, and as a result high feeling prevailed, till drastic decisions on the part of the field umpires filled players with a strong determination. At Port arlington matters were very much out of order, where Cliff and Ports engaged in exciting contest. Artillery not many minutes be fore the final bell had established a winning lead, after a well-fought contest. Watkins, the field um pire, proved himself unreliable as far as the game was concerned, as Artillery's lead was altered as a result of ill-given decisions. Alto gether about half-a-dozen free kicks were awarded which in the opinion of capable and unprejudiced jud...

Sunday Corner. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
Sunday Corner. Visions in the Words of Christ. Every word of Christ that- we. ponder deeply opens to us a vision of beauty or excellence-some thing very lovely, a fragment of Christ's own image-and we should instantly strive to paint the vision on our own life, to get the beauty, the excellence, the loveliness -into our own life. Let us learn to be loyal to the word of Christ; not only to know it and ponder it and meditate upon it, but to do it, and to allow it thus to shape and mould our whole being into its own holy beauty. If we hide Christ's words in our hearts, they will, transform us into his likeness.

BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
BIG DEALS. Some Famous Spot-Cash Transactions. The sudden purchase of the Pieca dilly Hotel for the sum of £500,000 Is a remarkable instance of a huge concern changing hands in a few moments. It was easy enough for Mr. Mallaby-Deeley to draw a cheque for half a million, but the compli cated nature of the deal is only ap parent when one tries to realise what half a million of money really is. But half a million down is by no means a record. There have been numerous sales of great English es tates during the last twenty years, and .more than £500,000 has-been paid on at least two occasions. One es tate alone-the Kensington-realised. over- £600,000, antd the whole trans action Said not cover two hours. Even within the past three months two estates changed hands for £250,000 apiece. Mr. Pierpont Morgan has been as sociated with many big deals Some years ago he was shown a collection of old masters, and- promptly pur chased the lot for one million pounds sterling, drawing a single cheque...
HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
HOW BMlERTS ARE FORMED. .There is a popular idea that deserts Mike the Sahara are the bottoms pf ancient seas which have been lifted above their original elevation by geological forces. This notion is an erroneous one. It is absolutely cer tain, high authorities contend, that Mhe sands of all the great deserts have been formed of the spot by the klisintegration of the solid rocks on pvhkch they rest. Desert sands cor respond in all respects, so far as their mode of origin is concerned, to the dust and sand that accumulates on our high roads in summer. All deserts are situated where the winds from the ecean, before reaching them are exhausted of their moisture by ipassing over mountains or across ex tensive tracts of land.

THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. Once upon a time in P:ngland nIo young girl would have dared to ac cept an much as a packet of choco lates or a posy from a young man. Now he may send her a confectionzer'sf or a florest's shop, his motor-carl, and his box at the opera. So much -have we taken from America. Never theless the privileges of liberty carry their risks. The increased liberty of the one sex reacts upon the other, and helps to make breaches in the ramparts. There is often very little distinc tion between the habits and manners of the two sexes. They talk the same lingo, employ the dame ideas, and have the same sports arid pas times. How is it practicable to maintain ad irreproaciiable system of etiquette between such? The modern youing man takes his cue from the moderni young woman, and joins het iii ignioring her femininity. She's a "jolly good sort," a "nice chap," and other horrors in slang. The fact ig that we must invest our sexual relationis with a certain aloof ness and reserve...

THE TOAD UNURE55Eb . -It is about the middle of Julyj when he appears sluggish and not in elined to move, that the toad sheds his skin. If you wait patiently you will observe him press his elbows against his sides, and begin rubbing lownwards, After a few smart rubs ais skin begins to burst open straight along his back. He keeps on rub bing until he has worked all his skin into folds on his sides and hips ; then, grasping one hind leg with both his hands, he hauls off one leg of his pants, then strips off the other hind leg in the same way. He then brings the cast-off cuti cle forward,, between his fore-legs, into his mouth, and swallows it; then, by raising and lowering his head, still swallowing as his head comes down, he strips off the skin underneath, until it comes to his.. fore-legs. Grasping one of these with the opposite hand, by consider able pulling he strips off the skin. Changing hands, he strips the other. Then, by a slight motion of the head, and all the while swallowi...

Political. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
Political. In the Town Hall on Monday evening Senator McColl addressed a meeting of electors. Cr W. J. Thwaites p: esided and there was a fair attendance considering the bad weather. Senator McColl touched briefly on the main issues, especially vindi:ating the Governor-General for having granted a double dis solution. The last Ministry had not been given a fair show, and sc riiinisters had made up their minds to go to the country. The speaker referred to the surplus mentioned by Mr Fisher, but stated that the debts obscured the surplus, as Mr Fisher's spend' ig was enormous. He condemned the industrial dis putes. and stated that Mr Fisher's programme promised many things, but these he would be unable to fulfil by reason of lack of funds. Liberalism had given free Govern ment, land laws, -'i policy. of pro tection, vote by ballot, free educal tion, wages boards, old aged pensions and a defence spstem. He predicted a victory for Liberalism, and hoped the contest would be dealt fairly....

Ship in Danger. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
1 Ship in Danger. Excitement was caused in Queenscliff at 7.30 on Sunday evening last, when the .week bell sounded an alarm for a ship in distress. A strong south-west breeze was blowing and a heavy ebb tide. A light could be seen off Nepean Reef, showing the posi tion of a ship, Hovding, a Norwe geian cargo boat of 1800 tons. She had been caught in a nasty squall coming from Cape- Otway, which carried away her main mast. A message was sent by her master to the pilot boat Victoria, which at once transmitted the danger flash to. the lighthouse, and immedia tely the lifeboat was summoned, but the boat did not proceed out until receiving a message from the distressed ship, at midnight, when a loud .report of a rocket was heard, the report resembling the firing of a big gun at the fort. The ship had dropped both anchors, and had not the tide been at the flood she would surely have been doomed. A rumor was current among those who had gathered on the pier that the ship had dragged her anc...

SOMETHING must certainly be done regarding the borough's responsi bilities for its share of the upkeep of the Infectious Diseases Wards in connection with the Geelong Hospital. The monetary call is growing rapidly. At the present there is a right to levy district municipalities should funds be re quired, and in the event of serious outbreak" of scourge 'this would very probably become enormous and unbearable for Queenscliff, a position which is to be enquired. into, In accordance with the award of the Central Board of Health our contribution is £25 per annum, but, as stated, if there is an outbreak, this may be materially increased. For this reason, prin pally, Queenscliff is to be repre sented at a conference of munici palities on the 23rd inst., when this matter can possibly be regu lated. It becomes more and more apparent that all necessitous insti tutions should be solely maintained through Government, which would dispel the difficulties experienced by committees in financing in...
