BASEBALL. NORTHCOTE V. ST. KILDA. Northeote, by right of their premier ship of the B grade last season, has been promoted to the A grade, and on Saturday their game against St. Kilda reflected great credit upon the whole team, as undoubted promise was shown. WVith two or three good men still to come into the team they should prove a hard nut to crack before the season is far advanced. Before the match Mr,. J. Smith, president of the St. Kilda club and vice-president of the League, took the opportunity of congratulating North cote upon the success in the past, and stated that their play thoroughly meri ted promotion, and he hoped the club would have a successful season in A grade, Mr. C. Begg (captain) respon (led on behalf of his team, Crawley, Collingwood's late pitcher, and Gibaud, a good catcher from Fitz roy, formed Northcote's battery, and taking into consideration that each was strange to the other peformed well.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES There are three kinds of men who don't know anything about women, They are old men, young men, and middle-aged men,-Brooklyn "Eagle," Never mind them, little skirt, Who your character would hurt. From the way you shrink and shrink, You're quite timid, I should think, -"Judge," New York. I want to warn meat-eaters against a cunning conspiracy to convert them into vegetarians. A man (whom I have since discovered to be a notori ous nut-eater) lured me into a strange restaurant yesterday morning, and set before me something that looked like a mutton cutlet. I cannot tell exactly what first aroused my sus. pifconH, but suddenly approaching the cutlet from behind I tore off its false frill, and discovered it to be some nuts iand potatoes in disguise.

A DISCLAIMER. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
A DISCLAIMER. To the Editor, Sir, -As the article in last Saturday's "Leader" entitled "And they set up their idols in the Grove" might create a wrong impression amongst some of the Pender's friends, who have so ably as sisted us during the year, would you kindly insert this disclaimer, as none of the workers at Pender's Grove Metho dist Sunday School had any knowledge of the publication until it appeared, Yours, &c., R.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") The more we see of the new fash. aona the more it becomes apparent that the stiff corset must go and the new figure and pose be adopted, to a certain extent, if they are to be worn with any good effect. There must he a svelte pliability that any much- bon ed and braced corset will not allow, and there must be a certain sugges tion of limpness, How different is the new figure-line from that of last year, So much so that many thoughtful wo men long have hesitated before adopt ing the new style,. The question is: will complicated draperies enjoy as short a reign as did panniers last sea. son? Parisiennes were almost taken aback themtselves by the unheard of eccentricities paraded for their edi fication at fashionable racecourses. The leading houses, seeing they had overstepped , the mark, capitulated, and immediately made tracks in an. other direction, Hence modes which threatened to be more thitan eccentric have beconme subdued and are simple and elegant....
Fines for Motor-Cyclists. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
Fines for Motor.Cyolists, To the Editor. Sir,-Kindly grant me space in your valuable columns to vent my indigna tion at the punishment meted out to motor-cyclists and motor car drivers in Northeote. Recently I noticed a motor cyet At was fined £2 for driving at a speeed of 20 miles an hour, when the street (Iligh street north) was devoid of traftic. A few days later two motor cyclists were racing along the samne thoroughfare, travelling (according to the police constable's evidence) at the rate of 40 miles an hour. These parties were fined £1 each; and very recently a citizen was fined 5s for driving a motor cycle along the same thoroughfare at t30 miles an hour. We live under British rule, where the Union Jack boasts of freedom and fair play,' and I am certain that any fair-minded person, comparing the above-mentioned speeds and lines, will admit that some party or parties have wavered from the principle of which the British Empire can always boast. --Yours, &,, FAIII PILAY...
NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
NORTHCOTE THEATRE. A programme of exceptional brilliance will be presented for the last time this evening. Harry Lauder, in a laughable comedy stunt entitled "golf," creates roars of laughter, whilst the star feature, "The Vampire," is a strong and stirring dramatic story. "THE THREE MUSKETEES" A whole-programme production com mences Monday night, May 4, and will be shown for six nights and Saturday's matinee, Of all the works of that immortal French novelist, Alexandre Dumas, the elder, not one as been more widely read than "The Three Musketeers," Trans lated into almost every living lan guage, its charm is as great to-day as ever, and its hold upon the public mind ever becomes stronger and stronger. Gifted with marvellous imagination, Dumas, in "The Three Musketeers," wrote of one of the most romantic periods in English and French history, when Charles Villiers, Duke of Bucking ham, was favorite at the English Court, whilst the great Cardinal Richelieu was the power behind the thr...

A CHURCH OPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
A CHURCH OPENING. The formal opening and dedication of the new Congregational Church, Martin street, Northcote, took place last Satur day afternoon, the weather being ideal. The ceremony was witnessed by a large crowd. The assemblage bore eloquent testimony to the necessity of a more up to-date structure than the old weather board building, erected at Dr. Bevan's cost twenty years ago. In December last, the trustees accepted the tender of Mr. Harold Jones, Northcote, for the erection of a brick building, designed by Messrs, Grainger and Little. An early start was made in January. The found ation stone was laid by the Rev. H. Joyce (chairman of Congregational Union) on January 31st. Though not quite completed, advantage was taken to occupy the edifice early. Mr. W. N, Pratt, secretary of the Congrega tional Building Association, addressed the assemblage from the door-step, after which he opened the church doors and declared the church available for divine worship. The church, which w...

Prince of Wales' Park Methodist Sunday School. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
Prince of Wales' Park Methodist Sunday School. The anniversary services of the above Sunday school were commenced on Sun day last, and were highly successful, being attended by large congregations at all the services, especially in the evening, when the seating accom modation proved inadequate for all who desired to attend, and late.comers had to be content with standing room only, in the morning and afternoon the pul pit was occupied by the Rev, J; H. Cain. In the morning he gave an able and forceful discourse on the parable of the talents. In the afternoon his remarks were chiefly addressed to the children, The evening service was conducted by the new pastor of the church, the Rev, J. Mlclroy, who gave an excellent ex hortation on the text "Put on the whole armour of God," The singing of the special hymns by the children was ex cellent, and a word of commendation is due for their splendid behaviour through out the day. Mr. E. Grainger was the conductor, and Miss I. Britten preside...
FOOTBALL. NORTHCOTE V. WILLIAMSTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
FOOTBALL. -'- ..... NORTHCOTE V. WILLIAMSTOWN. Northcote put up a very disappointing display against Williamstown at Croxton reserve on Saturday last, when there was again a splendid attendance of spectators. Changes in the local team from the previous Saturday were White, Gluyas, Hamilton, and Mills, who re laced Veitch (on injured list), Glass, Carroll, and M. Smith. With the ex ception of the first and third quarters the game was was very one-sided. Play was in favor of Northcote for the first 10 minutes, Hamilton signalising his in clusion by piloting first goal and Ridd following suit with a behind. The'visit ors retaliated by scoring 2 behinds and a goal and Ridd shortly afterwards made the scores level with a single. Williams town led by 2 points at quarter-time. The visitors did all the scoring in the succeeding time increasing their tally to 5.10 while Northeote's remained unalt ered. After the interval the locals played a better game and the third quarter was in their favo...
NORTHCOTE AND PRESTON F.C. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
NORTHCOTE AND PRESTON F.C. To the Editor. Sir,-Now that "Well-Wisher" has closed his correspondence with matter irrelevant to the previous letters by quoting Footscray, Prahran and Brigh ton clubs, he must understand that the above have not to contend with League clubs, as they are, with one exception, far removed from any League ground, whilst Northcote has Carlton, 1 itzroy, and Collingwood easily accessible either by tram or train. As far as the attend ance at this fancy dress football match is concerned, the attendance at Croxton Park on any football day far exceeds that. I was present on the day men tioned and passed the remark on the small attendance. Let alone gladden the heart of an Association club, this grand-stand, if all accounts are true, has been financed by one individual, and will always be a white elephant to the cricket club, also a drag on their receipts for years, and now it would be a line thing for the football club to fall into the joke. However, they are one ...

These same entertaineers later on fav ored with "Gay Japanese," A song and dialogue by the boys, "John and Co.," was excellently given, but the "hit" of the night was an action song, "Coach a...

LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
LACK OF SYSTEMION THE FARM. When we stop and look around, we are not surprised that there are so many farmers who are discontented, who have spent so many unprofitable years. There are so many of them robbers of the soil's fertility, and rob bers mostly come to grief, sooner or later. A man can't go on cropping his land year after year, and hauling the crop to market, without selling his land, too. And when both hIs land and hls crop have gone, then-why, then he is discontented.
