WHERE NOBODY DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914

WHERE NOBODY DIES. People with money and people without (that is when they can) has. ten off to health resorts to prevent themselves being, earlier than they de. sire, placed under mother earth. Bret 1-arte remarked in one of his stories that he would like to find a place where no one ever died. According to the Gembrook Cemetery trustees, the Gembrook district is just the place the American novelist was look ing for. The trustees have resign ed in a body because there is no bus;. ness "doing in the burying line, and consequently, no revenue. In thw past 40 years there were only two in. terments, anl they were pauper cases who had strayed into the district, not residents. The trustees have accord. ingly come to the conclusion that the district doesn't require a cemetery, that the local "planting ground" is wasted, and that nobody in the dis trict is ever going to die and give them a job. As a health resort recommen dation this will take some beating.

A QUESTION OF OUNCES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914

A QUESTION OF OUNCES. MANY recent cases in the suburban courts have established the fact that spring balances, such as used by butchers, are apt to develop a will and a way of their own in meting out meat to customers. it may be that, in many instances, where the master-butcher is concerned, "a false balance is abomin ation to him, but a just weight is his delight," nevertheless the evidence of inspectors goes to prove that in a week's weighings there must be a vast amount of shrinkage in the sum total of parcels delivered over certain traders' counters. Many of the scales in use are alleged by defendants to be so susceptible to weather influences that a breath of spring may account for an ounce short age, a summer blast for anything from two ounces and upwards, while the inference is that even a warm swear word might bring along its own penalty to an injudicious purchaser. On the same reasoning the coming of winter, when more meat is consumed, should bring the balance the other way...

PLENTY ROAD TRAM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914

PLENTY ROAD TRAM.IVI, TO THE EDITOR, Sir,-Concerning matters of interest and convenience to Preston residents, I would like to ask why there is so much delay in forwarding the movement for installing a tram service up Plenty road. Present residents are only too w;|iimii o come to terms to take their fair share of responsibility of payment, if necessary. For proof of my state ment, surely a list of signatures could easily be secured of householders and owners specially desirous at the present time for the convenience of a tram. Let it be borne in mind that everyone does not possess a horse and trap, and those who do cannot always drivo, Have we to wait another 25 years? -Yours, &e., LONG Sui;mi';:n.

CHRYSANTHEMUM FAIR AT PRESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914

-CHRYSANTHEMUM FAIR AT PRESTON. A home feeling might have come to the "little brown man if he had Ibeen present at the Preston shire hall ll Thursday afternoon, for sunny Japan, the land of the chrysanthemum, was much in evidence, not only from the display of gorgeously-colored blooms, but from the artistic lattice-work de corations of the various stalls in connec tion with a fair in aid of the Metho dist Sunday school funds, The building resembled some of the oriental scenes depicted in Sir Reginald Treves' book of travel, "The Other Side of the Lan tern." Each little stall was a complete study in miniature, the whole reflecting the greatest credit on Master Willie Mather, who designed, and Mr. Rose, who set them up, the latter gentleman being so enthuiastic in the cause that he rose from a sick bed to carry out the work, afterwards returing to the nurs ing quarters. There were, of course, many capable and wiling helpers, both ladies and gentlemen, who are all to be comeplimented o...

"Where the Road Forks" and "The Shadow" are pictures well above the average, whilst the comedy portion is well catered for with "Andy Plays Hero" and "A Lesson in Jealousy."

WHAT! AN ELECTION? AWAKE, ye pullers of strings! prepare to move, ye puppets! noble electors, polish up your ears, clear your throats, and make ready to swallowl An election is at hand. The muddy pool of politics (or "antics" as "Punch'. aptly termed it) is about to undergo another churning, and the sticks to stir it (or to stir themselves) are all ready for thrusting into the hands of electors. It is announced that Mr. Cook, the Prime Minister, has applied for, and that the newly-arrived Governor-General has granted, a double dissolution. An elec tion will follow immediately, and t1a..i urlain tdi' - -"' ton that g.reat national farce-the selection of repro sentatives by the independent and in tolligent choice of the country's man hood.
