BASEBALL. A GRADE. NORTHCOTE V. EAST MELBOURNE This match was played at East Mel bourne, when Northcote scored their first win after some meritorious play. The game was interesting throughout, and at different stages each team held the lead, and it was not until the seventh innings, when Northcote scored 6 runs, that the game was won. Robinson re appeared in the pitcher's box and did well, and his fielding was perfect. As catcher Gibaud did all that was neces sary, and took some good foul flies. Crawley pitched in the last two innings and proved a snag to East's batsmen. He also took two neat flies in the out field. Begg at second base was the star performer with twelve plays without error, and Froebel was a tower of strength at first base. Brown and Bill ings kept up their reputations as out fielders, and each had some good flies to their credit. The batting of the team was good, the runs being scored by Froebel (3), Robinson (2), Bolton (2), Gibaud, Begg, Brown, Crawley and Bailey...

C GRADE. The match between Preston and Haw thorn was played last Saturday on the Preston oval, and as it was the first game played there a fair crowd wit nessed it and seemed to take a deep in. terest in the many points of the game. The locals proved far superior to the visitors and scored 18 runs to 1. Blun dell pitched in his best style and had all the strikers thinking. Gillies caught well as usual, but his throwing to second, at times, was a bit strong. Westmore land, on 1st base, played his usual safe game. The batting of Preston was again commented upon. Geo. Sykes played for the first time with Preston and hit a home run and also two other runs. P. Howes also hit a home run. Mr. Martin umpired and W. Dickens acted as foul line umpire.

Preston will have their gold and blue uniform for...

NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
NORTHCOTE THEATRE, "London by Day and Night" proved an enormous attraction at this popular house of entertainment for the first three nights of the week. Great in terest attaches naturally here in Aus tralia to the monument of the Metropolis and from start to finish the huge audi ences followed keenly. every single scene and the film was an unqualified success. The stars now showing are of exceptional interest. The Vitagraph railway drama, "The Wreck," in which two trains are seen rushing headlong at each other, takes pride of place, nothing more sensational or effective could possibly be imagined than this picture. A pathetic Irish drama "The Wearing of the Green" is also worthy of .special mention. They will be screened at the matinee'tpday at 2.30, and for the last time to.night. The attraction com mencing Monday next "Out on the Deep" is a magnificent Nordisk produc tion, it is a fine story, splendidly enacted and remarkably realistic, whilst a chase along the sands in which a m...

A NURSE'S AGONISING PILES. ZAM-BUK PEIRFECTLY CUIEti.4S. Surely no stronger proof of Zam-Iluk's power to end the most distressing cUses of piles need, be quoted than the story of Mrs, H. Neaves, the well-known nurse of 12 Poplar street, Surrey Hills, Syd ney, For some time," says Mrs. Neaves, "I was a martyr to blind and bleeding piles which caused awful agony. The inflammation and general congestion made my life a misery.

FOODS OF THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
FOODS OF THE MIND. We are conscious that the food of the body influences the health of t11 mind, as when we say of some un. suitable or Indigestible thing, "It has made me dull of mind, it has made me sad, it has made me irritable, or has In some other way affected my equanimity," But we do not recog alse with like readiness and in the same way the effect of the foods of the mind on the mind and its health; nor is this remarkable, for the body feeds perceptibly, and by one stom. ach alone, while the mind feeds im. perceptibly by five stomachs, by every sense, which is to it a veritable stomach, from and by which it re* ceives its ailment, be that good or bad, and from and by which it Is re newed and from day to day sustained, These foods of the mind entering the mental organisation, the camera nervosa, largely, if not altogether, mould that organisation into set form, according to its quality for moulding, They are so like the touch of the sculptor on the clay, that to a large exten...
More than His Money's Worth. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
More than His Money's Worth. Wife (whose husband had just been knighted): Have you heard from the man who offered to trace our pedi gree? Husband: Yes, he has found out more than enough, Wife: What did you pay him? Husband: Fifty pounds-to hold his tongue! I have heard of men who would die ror a woman, but never of one who would go without his dinner for her. A married woman says the way to be happy with a husband is to learn to be happy without him most of the time. Marriage is like the stage scenery; I looks well from a dittance. Women should have two great atnms n lifo--trying to be beautiful and iucceeding in being pleasant.
JOHN RUDD'S SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
JOHN RUDD'S SECRET. d By C. D. Leslie, To John Rudd, busy at his desk- a he had just returned from a flying a business trip to the Continent-the card of Miss Bertha Heath was brought by his secretary. The mil lonaire read it, wondering who Sihe was, then his eye caught the address in the corner, and his face clouded, as though recalling an unpleasant me. mory; after a long pause he bade Par. ker admit Miss Heath, "I will see her alone," lie added. The interview took place in the mil lionaire's house in Berkeley Square, much of his work being transacted there. A girl entered-a thin, frail figure in black, with frightened eyes and hesitating mien. Mr. Rudd rose and shook hands with curt civility, "I heard in Dresden of my old friend's death. I'm sorry I was unable to return in time for the funeral." "This letter-she wrote it two days before she died," said the girl, timid ly proffering It, He waved her to a seat, opened, and read the following epistle:- "Dear Joln,-I've always pro. mi...

A Good Send~off. Mr. Newlygilt (to Mrs, N., who is cultivating society): Well, my dear, and how did you get on at the Vere de Vere's? Mrs Newlygilt: Well, they were a little cold and stand-offish at first, I thought, but, oh, so nice when I came away. Dont' try to analyse women; love F them for what they are. Don't pick them to pieces as you would a toy, for you can never put them together again. He whose heart is set entirely on I money.getting cannot be other than sordid.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," In Melbourne. We often hear of folks being "blue," but have never seen it so nearly ex emplifed as at the Repertory Thea tre ball, where several ladies werd blue from head to foot literally, for they even displayed blue hair, This was the first time in Melbourne that the new dyed wigs have !leen see I in any numbers, and we have not yet quite decided whether we like them or not. uf course, we vre accuse tomed to the coiffure which Is so deep orange in hue that it Is prac tically majenta. We have had a num ber of these of late years, but the new tones are quite a novelty. I can not say they are nearly as becoming as the natural colored hair. The dark moonlight blue is certainl' more becoming than the light saxe tones, and in one or two instances the purple proved really effective, but on the whole these colored wigs can. not be voted a success. Certainly one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair, 6ý is but a freak fashion and ...
SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
YuNrI'Y a aINI'UL BUNDAY. The Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets that there is no observable diminution in the volume of the human stream that sets towards recreational resorts on Sunday." On itabbath after Sabbath see them pass the churches by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why. Though "seventhly" be out of date, and brevity's the aim Of many a modern preacher, still the quality's still the same As when the Reverend John Macduff preached sermons sad and long, And who'd accept a Sunday choir for bunday's boating song? When joys of Sydney Harbor to the Sydney people call, The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. It may be right; it may be wrong; Persnurkus will not seek To justify the way they spend their holiday per week. .or yet can Peter well condemn the pleasant things they do, For, if the -honest truth be told, gay Peter does 'em too. When he was young he went to church because he had to go, But now he's wise to all the t...
