FOOTBALL. NORTHCOTE V. FOOTSCRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914
FOOTBALL, NORTHCOTE V. FOOTSCRAY. A very friendly game was played be tween Northcote and Footscray on the latter's ground last Saturday. Up to half-time Northcote had not scored a point, but in the third quarter they played the better game, scoring 3 goals 2 behinds to their opponents' 2 goals 1 behind. The. latter, however, again monopolised the attention of the goal umpires in the final term, and ran out easy winners, having scored 10 goals 18 behinds to Northcote's 3 goals 2 behinds. For Northcote, H. Thomas, their full back, and Bassett and Hall, in front of him, both did excellent work. Pember ton, the old North Melbourne player, shaped very well in the centre, and Mills arid Cole did effective work on the wings. Joe Johnson played with the team again, and as a forward was one of the best men on the ground, though in the last half no man on the side was doing better for them than Moore, With a couple of big fellows to do the hustling and spoiling, Johnson and one or two others ...
BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914
BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. The Columbia School of Journal ism has introduced a new method of training their embryo journalists. M1Io tion pictures will be shown to the stu dents in the future, and they will be required to write them up as if they had actually seen the events in real life represented on the screen The first pictures to be used were three reels of the Balkan War films. In this way the faculty hopes to be able to train the scholars in accurate observation in reporting the events as they happen. In explaining the reason for adopt ing motion pictures to train students in journalism, Dr. Talcott Williams, director of the School of Journalism, saidl: "In adopting the new experiment in education the School of Journalism hopes to overcome its greatest obh stacle, that of giving the students practice in reporting actual events, and at the same time making it pos. sible for the Instructors to know how accurately and thoroughly the work has been done.

Blaming Mother. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914
Blaming Mother. ".My mother made me what I am," said the political speaker as he proud ly threw out his chest. "Well," said a small man at* the rear of the hall, "she must have put in some of her time at other things." As soon as a woman knows what heo wants, she generally gets it. It's when she does not know what she wants that she baffles the philoso pher.. Blar your iroubles manfully, Every one endured bravely strengthens your claractor; every one shirked weakens "To make the wheels of the day's work run smoothly," says the village philosopher, "there's nothing like a little oil, Harsh, peremptory com mands only exact grudging service, Courtesy and consideration Inspire spohtaneous and conscientious work In return. Anne Teeke: Mr. Gasser is such an interesting talker. Always says some thing one never hears from anyone else. Miss Cynique: .Hashe been propo sing to you, too?

"At sameo time," replied John, "that your fiend comeo up and smel. lee flowers," The most tiroesome people in this world are not the bores, but the peoe pie who are bored and whom nothing ever pleases.

LOVE'S ARITHMETIC. iHe was teaching her arithmetic, lie said that was his mission; -He kissed her once, he kissed her twice, He said, "Now that's addition," And so he added smack to smack In silent satisfaction, Till timidly she gave him one back, And whispered, "That's subtrac tion."

LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT? [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTER8 BE KEPTI Should old love-letters be kept? ,Most people would say if asked the question, "If you're unmarried, keep them; if you're married, destroy them most decidedly." In other and plainer words, if you are unmarried, you can do as you like, If you are married, you can't if you want peace. A love-letter is sure to be read sooner or later, however carefully you may hide it; however emphatically you may deny Its existence. This is one reason why married people should not 'keep old love-letters-they arme sure to be found. The next is obvi ous. A woman can't forgive a rival, and a milan wfl not. It Is unreasonable really, but there It is, and you have to accept things as they are in this life. It is unreas onable of the man, because if he comes to think about it, a vanquish ed host adds glory to himself, but he is still afraid the other man will cut hlim out. Not being sentimental himself, he c:1't believe she kept the old love letters only to r...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914
LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene" in Melbourne. There has just arrived in Melbourne a charming young heiress. She is of Semetic and Spanish extraction, and, though not quite unfamiliar with Aus tralia and things Australian, this is not her native place, Quite a roman tic story is connected with her. Her mother, who is the wife of the head man in a big business organisation, was a Spanish heiress of good quality. She came to Australia years ago, 1 handsome, highly.acconpllshed young matron who had been used to moving in good society.

Those who call ed upon her were of the pushing type, and not at all the class she had been accustomed to. She was as one os tracised, ,having nothing in common with those who s...
Chapped Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 6 June 1914
Chapped Hands,. Some children suffer greatly from rough and cracked hands. Sometimes the soap used is too strong, but in most cases chapped hands are the re sult of careless or incomplete drying after washing them. It is a good plan co see that the children thoroughly wash their hands when they come in from play, Warm water, plenty of soap, and a dry rough towel will quick ly remove the dirt, and afterwards, when the skin is dry, a little pure mutton fat should be rubbed in. If the wrists are very badly chapped and sore they should be kept covered,
