And as to the relative Injur lotisness of the • various forms of smoking—well, you will always find that a doctor who Is devoted to hla pipe will assure you all other forms of smoking nre pernicious; the doctor who smokes cigars will swear'by cl- . gars: and the doctor who has a pre dilection for cigarettes will, while quite tolerant of the pipe and cigar, assure you that cigarette smoking Is perfectly harmless..

SNAKE-SKIN SHOES. From all reptiles I ho ordinary wo \ man shrinks 111 dissust Vet fashion able women urn now beins tempted to conquer their aversion to^the extent or wearing snake-skin shoes One of the smartest boot 'shops In (lie West end of London is "featuring" these shoes: but up to the present it seems to be uncertain if the fashion will really establish itself on widespread lines. Choice of quite a variety of skins Is offered. There is the dark and heavi ly-marked skin of the deadly cobra, or the lighter skin, with its more de licate pigment markings, of the rapa cious python. The skins or the viper and tliu boa-constrictor have also been made up. Snake skin is very soft, pliable, and durable. The shoes are expensive, of course, for the skins are not too plenti ful, but this factor should rather com mend itself to smart people, as it renders it much nior6 dililcult to copy the fashion on cheap lines.

On the 12th inst, a fire occurred at Sandland Bros., Cooper street, Preston, a five roomed dwelling uninsured.

Mr. Allway estimates his loss at £150.

PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 16 May 1914
. PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT., L One of the greatest prejudices with which olectric lighting lias had- to contend is the assertion that it Is in jurious to the eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of the tungsten lamp, are harmful. The mere sound of the word "ultra-violet" seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to-some people, who,. perhaps, conjure up visions of mysterious mal adies analogous to those which at tacked the early experimenters with the X-rays. All" this alarm is, fortun ately, unfounded, for the emission of ultra-violet rays by some of the-latest types of metar filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a source of Illumination. The pow erful new lamps, however, can be in jurious, to the eyesight, in the same way as any other illumlnant, by caus ing'Btrain owing to glare. More than ever nowadays the science, and art of - illumination., require to be carefully observed. - In the days of the candlo and-the early gas, burners t...

NORTHCOTE THEATRE. The wonders of the biograph never j cense, "In the Grip of a Villain," the star picture for the earlier part of the week, is n gem of motion. Apart from the drama itself the scenic pnrtofthe film was a glorious treat. "The Story of a Siren, which will be shown for the lost 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 tile 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 ot 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 fdms.

FOOTBALL. I NORTHCOTE V. NORTH MEIJS; ! This match wns played nt North Mel , bourne last Saturday, and, resulted in an i overwhelming victory for the home team . who took charge of the game from the ! outset, and by their pace and system quite outplayed the Nortbcoteites. Chan ges in the latter's team from the pre vious Saturday were the inclusion of McClelland, Kobinson, Ingham, and Carroll,'who replaced Hall, liidd, Mills, and Blackmail. The game needs little description, as North started to pile up the points immediately on the com mencement of play, ivhile Northcote did not score till well on in the second quarter, and it was not until the linal quarter that they opened their ^oal ac count. To Northcote's credit it must be conceded that they battled 011 gamely in the face of overwhelming odds, and their play improved as the day wore on. Some good systematic nlay was shown by them at times, but tliey were mainly of the "flash in the pan" variety. They, however, lacked the dash of...
