U.A.O.D. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
U.A.0.D. The Gwalia lodge held its fortnightly meeting on Monday evening, the A.D. (Bro. Chester) presiding. The an nouncement that the lodge had been successful in winning second prize given by the Board of Directors for initiating most new members during 1913 was received with applause. Three new members were initiated, and nearly a dozen propositions received, so that the lodge appears to be entering on another era of prosperity, It was reported that the matter of a combined syllabus for No. 24 district was assuming tangible form, and that same would probably be in operation for next half-year. Dis appointment was keenly expressed at the failure to secure a prize with the district tableau at the Druids procession on Easter Monday. Several of the members'had worked hard in connection therewith, and their efforts were the subject of complimentary reference all along the line of march.

NORTHCOTE v. PORT MELBOURNE [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
NORTHCOTE v, PORT MELBOURNE There was a large attendance at Port Melbourne on Saturday to witness the above match. Northcote's team under went some changes from the Prahran match, Blackman (Brunswick District), Glass tLeopold), Carroll, M. Smith, and Billett replacing Hall, White, Ryan, Cleland and Burke. The match .was remarkable for the formidable tally of behinds obtained by Ports, a cdnsiderable portion of which, however, were ob tained by the ball being rushed behind as the result .of exciting play round Northcote's goal. The game was not so one.sided as the scores would indicate. The main weakness of Northcote seemed to be the lack of a con\petent skipper,as time after time they'had the advantage only to lose it by the want of proper handling. Ports' handball, too, was a big factor in their victory, being much more effectively done than by their opponents. Ports were first to show out, scoring 2 goals 2 behinds be fore Northcoto got going properly, After that the' latter had t...
FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
FOOTBALL, Northcote and Williamstown play at Croxton reserve to-day. As keen riv alry exists between these teams an exciting game is almost assured, A satisfactory feature of the North cote v. Ports macch was the large num ber of Northcote supporters who made the journey to Port Melb. The Northcote committee have been unsuccessful so far in their efforts to secure a coach. Several prpminent League players;have been approached, but the fees demanded in each case have been too excessive. "We'd need to have a gold mine to satisfy the de mands made by some of these fellows," remarked a committee-man on Thurs day evening. Northcoto's team for to-day will be chosen from-Thomas (2), Moore, Dun can, Noble, Veitch, H. Smith, Bassett, Ridd, Blackman, Cole, Glass, Billett, Gluyas, Hall, Braid, Mills, Hamilton, and Carroll.

Northcote and Preston Football Club. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
Northoote and Preston Foot. ball Club. To the Editor. Sir,-Whilst recognising the futility of further controversy at the present time regarding the question of a suit able playing-ground for the above club, I would like to reply briefly to a few statements made by "Fair-Minded," before closing the correspondence as far as I am concerned. He states the pub lic were luke-warm regarding the taking up of debentures for the purpose of building a grand-stand at the park. That may be so, but they responded gener ously when the direct appeal was made to them by making a big success of the carnival in aid of the grand-stand fund. I also saw an attendance at the park the day the fancy dress football match was held that would gladden the heart of most Association football clubs. The first section of the grand-stand at the park is nearing completion, thanks to the splendid support received. One would think, by "Fair-Minded's" re marks, that the Northcote park was miles away from the town. As a ...

"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
"POETIC JUSTICE," Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. Some time ago a well-known writer severely criticised our present system for sending people to prison for crimes as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. He as serted that the nunishment should be made more to fit the crime, and some judges, especially in America, are be. ginning to follow out his ideas, For instance, the other day a man named Brant was charged in Ohio with steal. ing eggs, The judge ordered him to go to prison for five days, and to be fed during the whole of that time on a diet of eggs only, At the expiration of his sentence Brant declared that he had become so tired of eggs that he would never eat another one again, so that the judge's novel sentence has effected a radical cure in-this particu lar case. In California, if a man should fail to support his wife and family, he is sent to prison, where he is made to work hard and pay a daily sum to his "better-half" out of the money that...
What a Wife! [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
What a Wifel "lPoohl" sald a man ill an omnibus, a1s he and other business men were on their way to the City, "my wife is the most methodical, careful, neat wo. man you ever saw. It is all non1 sense for a woman to lot a house run into disorderly ways. You ought to see how my wife does things." "Well, of course, that is all very well in theory," responded another; "but the best housekeeper gets be. hind." "Mny wife never does. She is always the same, She keeps everything in first-class order."E "She must be a remarkable person," said another man. "How long have you been married?" "Ten years, And she has never dis. appointed me. Why, gentlemen, she always puts everything in the same place, and you know just where to find what you want, For Instance, I went to my handkerchief drawer this morning before daylight, and took out a handkerchief and put It in my poe. ket before starting out, and I know just as well as I know my own name that that handkerchief is just such a size, and has my...
OUT FROM THE SHADOWS [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914
OUI FROM THE SHADOWS By IAN GROSVENOR. Nobody over thought of calling James Hallerton by any other name than that of Plain James. Fortune had not been kind when it fashioned his features, Without being precise ly ugly to the point of repulsion, "lie was singularly ill-favored. With the exception of his eyes, there was no redeeming point about his face., The nickname the country had given him fitted him to a nicety; still, though correct in detail, the knowledge he deserved It rankled in the owner's breast. At no time did it hurt him more than when he fell in love with the prettiest girl in the village and, in dong so, discovered he was in the running with Steve Batwicke. Hand some as a Greek god, it was but little surprising that Daisy Martin should incline her ear more readily to the latter's lure of accent than to that of Plain James, It was a good month before Hallerton made this discovery. When he did he allowed his jealous re. sentment of his own imperfections to run riot for t...

The Middleman's Paradise. Shoes are going up because leather is going up, Leather is going up because hides are going up, Hides are going up because they are scarce, They are scarce because the but ohers are killing less cattle, The butchers are killing less cattle because there is less demand for meat, There Is less demand for meat be cause the price is too high.

WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Malny people fail to get rid of,warts because they think it can only be done withll great dilliculty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a polsonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. 'This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk. hlg to be carried on without any dis. comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of liy touching them with caustic soda. An. other simple remedy, and one which In many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts wil...

NORTHCOTE AND PRESTON SCOTTISH SOCIETY. The monthly harmony night of the above society was held on Monday evening in the supper room of the town hall, when the members and friends were taken a trip (per lantern slides) to Bonnie Scotland. It says a great deal for the lecturer (Mr. Ilardie) to be able to keep his audience deeply inter ested for a full hour and a half, his varied remarks on the different places shown, and his quaint stories, serving to keep him in close touch with his audience. A start was made at Roth say, then up the Firth to Greenock, then along to Glasgow. Some fine pic tures were here shown, and to " St. Mungo" natives present, no doubt, brought back to mind pleasant recollec tions of their young days.
