ITEMS OF NEWS. Re-Modelling of Nott Street School. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 31 October 1914
ITEMS OF NEWS. Re-Miodelling of Nott Street School. The contractor for re-modelling the Nolt street Statp School is making good progress with the work. In the few weeks since his tender was accepted the old-fashioned win dows have mostly been displaced by by enlarged designs, whilst the small end windows are being closed in. Light in future will be admitted through the wjridows on the sides facing Nott and Princes .treets. The re-construction idea will not make much more space available. The old class rooms, which were larger and ill-lighted, and accommo dated more than one grade, are being partitioned off, so that each class will receive instruction in separate chambers. The desks will be of the modern design similar to those now in. the infants school, each desk seat ing two. The whole of the inside will be refitted with the latest school equipment and lockers, and the walls will be plastered throughout. So far as the outside is concerned, when finished it will give the irg-. pres...
SNAKE KILLED IN RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 31 October 1914
SNAKE KILLED IN RESERVE. The extreme heat of last Saturday induced a tiger snake. to leave its hiding place and bask in the Station street reserve, where it was killed by Mr. L. Warmald, of'Ballarat. The young reptile, 22 inches long, had evidently existed in the vicinity of the North Port railway station, as it was located in the reserve at the rear. About this locality there is abundant shelter and water. There is every probability that where it was found others exist, as it appears to be a young one, and would scarcely have survived the winter months by itself. Mr. Watson, chemist, of Bay street, has preserved the snake in formalin, and it can be Seen in 'the window of his business premises.

Mills, Io and 24, and A. Mills, 15 and ii, distinguished themselves in being the only batsmen to get double figures in both innings. Ports took their unfinished first innings score of 4 wickets for go runs to the moderate total of 60o before the last wicket fell, J. McColl adding 18 to his tally of 43, and thereby being responsible for 6i of his team's total.

FORTUNES OF WAR. AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S LUCK. HARDSHIP THROUGH MARRYING GERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 31 October 1914
FORTUNES OF WAR. AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S LUCK. HARDSHIP THROUGH MARRYING GERMAN. A case of extreme hardship' was brought under the notice of Sergeant Sims last week, when a young married woman entered his office at` the local police station to seek advice in an extreme hour of need and dis tress. The woman (an Australian, born in Carlton) married 6 years ago to a Getman, although natural ised in Australia. They have 3 children, the youngest being eleven months old. Since the outbreak of war the husband was discharged from his employment-9 weeks ago, and the small savings quickly dis appeared in the steady drain for maintenance. The income being stopped, the rent remained unpaid for three weeks, and the landlord became anxious. The kind offices of the Dorcas Society, whose fort nightly allowance of certain pro visions is far from adequate to sustaiii two adults and three children, was enlisted, but the extreme poorness hung heavily around the young Australian" woman, who cherished her off...

"HOVDING" COOK'S PHONOGRAPH. PROWLS AT MIDNIGHT. AND PLAYS IN LIGHTER'S CABIN.

HOSPITAL SUNDAY COLLECTIONS. A RECORD ESTABLISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 31 October 1914
HOSPITAL SUNDAY COL LECTIONS. A RECORD 'ESTABLISHED. The record collection for hospitals established last Sunday is indeed gratifying, and plainly indicates that the charitable community does not intend to allow its most beneficient institutions to suffer on account of the disastrous European war The opinion was held generally that through the large'gifts to the patriotic fund the Hospital Sunday collec tions would fall far short of previous totals. Perhaps it was well, that this feeling did prevail, as it acted as a incentive to the generous to contri bute something extra in order to save the situation. So far as Port Melbourne is con cerned, the returns all round are lower. The following represent the collections from the various denom inations: 1914. 1913. " s. d. £ s. d. Lady of Mount Car mel.
