The catch at first base by Westmoreland, one handed, which brought olf a double play, was highly commented on. Percy Howes unfortunately got a n...

A NIGHT IN A JAPANESE INN. By Will W. Hock. It was the Drummer who conceived the brilliant idea. Krom his nimble brain emanated tho suggestion that dropped into tho midst of our noon-day lethargy with tho startliug Nuddonnm of a honib. Wo came to attention in various attitudes. Tho Drummer called for immediate decision, ns tho time was short. 15: on as ho spoke tho Engineer turned tho proposition down flat. "No," ho said, sinking back on tin* lounge. "Your theory's all right, paid. I agree that you can't touch the life of tho people from the balcony of a first-cbi»«.s note). 1 know* the bulk of the tourists miss the real thing. Give you all that in, but the hotel for mine/ I'm on vacation."

"JUDITH" ON TOUR. (Continued). Dear Mr. Editor,—The journey to Yann along "Plenty of Bumps" Koad was reverse of pleasant.

The unevenness of the road caused nui nnd auntie great discom fort. hut Jim cheered them by remind ing them of the saving in liver pills that would follow. We drew rein on the horder of the Miasma Plateau, nnd inspected the most interesting statue that overlooks the scene. The statue is of unique design, and its origin is enshrouded in mystery. The caretakers of this remarkable ex ample of sculpture, a family of the name of lireem, can shed no lighton its secret Whether it is of the discoverer of this remarkable region, or one of Horry Lauder's forbears, still remained the theme of deep discussion.

THE NORTHCOTE GIRL AND HER PRESTON COUSIN. A DUETTOGRAPH. [By applying a lighted match to goods sold in Sydney shops as the finest silk, a visitor to Australia showed that they contained no silk whatever, though they were wonderful imitations. It was said that one article sold at 7/11 a yard could hove been sold at a profit at 16. Other goods, such as ties, were sold at from 200 to -100 per cent, above the retail value. In each instance the articles were made from wood fibre.] We've paid for silken blouses, just How much we dare not say, And now a.paltry wooden match Has flared their worth away ("And isn't it vexing, when we've just got our new under wear, all silk, and paid for— pouf!"

Crowded attendances have nightly acclaimed and followed with eager interest the won derful cinematographic portrayal of Alexandre Dumas' famous novel. To dwell upon the plot would be a useless reiteration, as tlie story is so familar to everyone.

Preston Prosbytorian Sunday School. The anniversary services were held last Sunday, the attendance being good, especially in the evening. The Rev. C. Jones conducted the service in, the morning, and Rev. J. G. Stirling in the afternoon and evening. The musi cal portion of the services were monopo lised by the children, whose bright, hearty singing was much enjoyed by the congregation. On Wednesday evening, after the children had done justice to the good things provided at the tea tables, the prizes were distributed, and the scholars entertained their parents and friends, the shire hall being taxed to its utmost capacity. After the singing ofthe Dox ology Miss McNee opened the program with a nicely-rendered piano solo, being followed by a musical scene descriptive of camp life by the boys, which was very well done.

THE LOWLAND ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914
THE LOWLAND ROAD. I love the lowland road, A silver ribbon turning Past many a poor abode Where cotters' fires are burning; The bracken tinged with brown Its metalled edges lining, The old walls crumbling down Its twisted course defining. The lowland road I love Is set in pleasant places, And leads me when I rove Across the wind-swept spaces; I know its cheerful code, The love-lore that) it teaches Of kisses oft bestowed Beneath its nodding beeches. I love the lowland road, Each living thing that passes, The farmer with his load, The laughing lads and lasses, The lark tnat soars above, The life it brings before me— The lowland road I love Has cast its glamour o'er me. I know no other road When summer winds are stirring With such rich gifts bestowed, Such pure delights conferring; Nor find it hard to prove When autumn leaves are falling . The lowland road I love Is calling—ever calling. Scotland. Will W. Rock.
FOOTBALL. NORTHCOTE V. BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914
FOOTBALL. * NOUTHCOTE V. BRUNSWICK. Northcote met Iimnswick at Croxton on Saturday last in the presence of a numerous gathering of spectators. S. Hnll, A. Heck, and Veitoh were included in tile Northcote sixteen, replacing II. Thomas (011 injured list), Braid, and Hamilton. With the exception of the opening quarter, (luring which the play was fast and open, the game was very one-sided, Brunswick being altogether too good as a combination, while North cote were relying Urn much 011 individual cfTort. The main weakness, however, was 011 the forward line. This was manifested time after time during the afternoon, many good rallies bringing the ball within range without any addi tion being made to the score. The final result was—Brunswick, lii. 17; North cote 1.8. Moore (following and half back) played his best game for North cote this season, his marking being a feature of the match. Harry Smith* (roving and placed) was again in fine form, and though roughly handled at times was promine...
PLAYING GROUND FOR NORTHCOTE-PRESTON F.C. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914
PLAYING GROUND FOR NOKTII COTE-PRESTON E.G. To tho Editor. Sir, — Your correspondents, "Fair Minded" and "Well-Wisher," have said a lot for and against the football club playing on theNorthcote cricket ground. They both claim to be members of the club, but when a person hides behind a nom de plume it makes one "kind of suspicious." I think the whole controversy could he settled if they noted the name of the club on their member's ticket (if they have one), viz., "The Amalgamated Northcote and Preston Football Club," and if they look up the history of the club I think they will find that it was only on the condition that these two clubs amalgamated that they were al lowed to be one of the Association clubs. I may be wrong, but 1 have a faint recollection that such was the case. Nevertheless, the fact that it is a combined team surely gives Preston the ripht to have the team i>lay on a ground within a reasonable distance of our boundary, and not in an out-of-the-way place that woul...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES Many folk Boom to bollovo that ran trimonlnl ads. In the daily papers aro either fakes or jokes. Some of them are not. A young gentleman, rising 50, and well worn at that, spent quito a number of half-crowns with Auck land papers without any beauteous young damsel laying hor rank and fortune at his feet. So he got on to a "matrimonial agont." It seems al most incredible, but this agent ac tually found a sweot young thing of •lU'/i, and arranged a wodding between them without either having seen the other. Three days prior to the wed ding the giddy young flapper of 191& awaited her selected bridegroom In a boarding house. The bridegroom dressed himself with care and wont along. The "agent" Introduced them thus: Mr. , tills is Miss ——, your fiancee! The far from beautiful young man took one glance at a simpering mummified face that might have been dug up in ancient Egypt, and, without a word, grabbed his hat and departed.
