The second round of matches in sec tion 2 of the Victorian Bowlers' Billiard Association, as far as the local teams, Northcote and Thornbury, are con corned, will be played at Northcote and Thornbury tables, two players from each club, at each pavilion, but as the draw was an "at home" game for Northcote that club has the preference of the game; this falls to Thornbury on the re turn. Northcote's team includes one "dark horse," who has been privately extended and has shown some good points.

NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 16 May 1914
NORTHCOTE THEATRE. The wonders of the biograph never :ease. "In the Grip of a Villain," the itar picture' for the earlier part of the week, is a gem of motion. Apart from the drama itself the scenic partof the im was a glorious treat. "The Story of a Siren," which will be shown for the last time to-night, is one of the most powerful dramatic subjects; the acting is superb, whilst a realistic tango dance by Mdlle Mistinguett adds to the enjoyment. "London by Day and Night" will be shown for three nights, commencing Monday, May 18., The subject ranges from Windsor Castle to Petticoat lane. During a recent trip to Europe, the Amalgamated Pictures' representative conceived the idea of compiling for the delectation of the people of the over-sea dominions a work so comprehensive in the living depiction of this appealing subject as to far excel anything of the kind hitherto accom plished in films, How far he has suc ceeded will be abundantly manifested when the complete work will be pre se...
FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 16 May 1914
*FIRES, On the 11th inst, a stable at the rear of J. Norris's fruit shop, High street, was slightly damaged by fire. On the 12th inst, a fire occurred at Sandland Bros., Cooper street, Preston, a five roomed dwelling uninsured. The outbreak was caused by a lighted spirit lam, coming into contact with tarred hessian, a quantity of which was des. troyed. A fire occured in Mansfield street, Northcote, at 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning, the butcher's shop of Mlr. Frank Allway being destroyed, The owner, who resides in Dalley street, states that everything was safe when the premises were shut up at the end of the day's work, and the cause of the outbreak is therefore unaccountable. The Northcote and Preston tire brigades attended, but the alarm was not given in time for them to do anything to* wards saving the premises, which were insured in the South British Insurance Co., for £130. Mr. Allway estimates his loss at £150,

SUNDAY ENTERTAINMENT, To the Editor. Sir,-In your last issue a charity en tertainment is announcedl for a Sunday evening.

FOOTBALL. NORTHCOTE V. NORTH MELB. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 16 May 1914
FOOTBALL, NORTHCOTE V, NORTH MELB. This match was played at North Mel bournwe last Saturday, anderesu't.d in an overwhelming victory for the home team who took.charge of the game from the outset, and by their pace and system quite outplayed the Northcoteites, Chan ges in the latter's team from the pre vious Saturday were the inclusion of McClelland, Robinson, Ingham, and Carroll, who replaced Hall, Ridd, Mills,' and Blackman. The game needs little description, as North started to pile up the points immediately on the com mencement of play, while Northcote did not score till well on in the .second quarter, and it was not until the final quarter that they opened their goal ac count. To Northcote's credit it must be conceded that they battled on gamely in the face of overwhelming odds, and their play improved as the day wore on. Some good systematic play was shown by them at times, but they were mainly of the "flash in the pan" variety. They, however, lacked the dash of their op ponent...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 16 May 1914
LADIES' L"ETTER. (By "Irene.") A Melbourne girl writing from Lyons speaks of her visits to the shops, which are very beautiful and in which wares are attractively dis played, but she says one cannot help contrasting the life of the French shopgirl with that of the Melbourne girl, the wages and the hours being so different, In Lyons the shops open at seven 'in the morning and remain open until eight in the evening. Only a few of the best shops close on Sature day afternoon, and most of them are open on Sunday. The highest wage a girl reelcives Is 15/ a week, which is vastly different to that obtainable here, My correspondent has also been shown through several large silk warehouses, and says that crepe de chine has been quite ousted by taf fotas, and that to be quite chic every thing must show a touch of tartan, An interesting piece of fashion news has come from Paris.
