U.A.O.D. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 25 April 1914
U.A.O.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. 21 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.

The old wooden building will be used as a school.—News item]. "Behold, the old things pass!"and soon the house Is light-esteemed where hearts were Godward drawn, Where Israel-praises, hymning with the skies, (All incense-laden from the altar-earth) Havtf added note of joy to angel song. Oh! eould confining walls but breathe the tale Of troubled souls that here have found surcease ; Of lips that lisped a first convulsing cry For Christ-assistance, spoke the praylr All hopeless of the Elder-Brother s aid, Or couched petition 'mid despondent groan! The story, sure, might linger long with men, For ancient plank and roof-tree, praise embalmed, Might then, with tongue insistent, promulgate The mem'ries of the past: the pulpit say How many times it bore the godly man, How oft a devil took usurping place And glossed the Word to meet occ...

Death of the Rev. A. R. Edgar. At the midday session of W.C.T.U. at Northcote on Thursday, the news of the Kev. A. R.

Our mother-earth has gain'd her own— 'Tis women weeping at the tomb: "He is not dead, but risen, now!" — The message comes thro' open door; "The Good Man lives!" for, lo! his Lord In trailing glory passed before!

Northcote and Preston Football Club. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 25 April 1914
Northcoto and Preston Foot ball Club. To tho 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 tnem 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...

our FROM THE SHADOWS By IAN GROSVKNOU. Nobody evur thought of calling James Ilallortoii by nny other name than that of Plain James. Fortune had not been kind when It fashioned IiIh features. Without boing precise ly ugly to the point of repulsion, he was singularly ill-favored. With tho excoption of his oyes, there was no redcoinlng point about his face. The nickname tho country had given him fitted hlin to a nicely; still, though correct in detail, tho knowledge lie dCBorved 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 tho village mid, in deng so, discovered lie was In the running with Steve Uatwlcko.

NORTHCOTE v. PORT MELBOURNE [Newspaper Article] — Northcote 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 l'rahran match, Blackman (Brunswick District), Glass ^Leopold), 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 considerable 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 competent 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 Northcote got going properly. After that the latter had the ...

FOOTBALL. Northcoto and Williamstown play at Croxton reserve to-day. As keen riv alry exists between these tennis an exciting game is almost assured. A satisfactory feature of the North coto v. Ports match was the large num ber of Northcoto supporters who made the journey to Port Melb. The Northcote committee have been unsuccessful so far in their efforts to sccure a coach. Several prominent League playersjiave been approached, but the fees demanded in ench case have been too excessive.
