FAMOUS WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
FAMOU8S WIDOWS, News comes from Knoxville, Teno nessee, of the death of "Parson" Brownlow's widow, at the age of nine ty-fivo years. Few people knew that until so lately there remained this liv ing link with the famous "fighting parson" of war times, whom Tennes see exlelledl because of his bold at tacks upon secession, but afterwards recalled to be Its governor. Yet how many widows of dlistinguished men have survivedl their husbands so long that they have seemed to trail phan toms of history through the living re alitles of a later generation! Ii tlhe town of Charlotte, North Carolina, Mrs. Stonewall Jackson Is still living. It Is nearly thirty-oight years since Custer's last fight, yet Mrs. Custer Is alive and well. .lrs. N. P. Willins died only a few years ago in Washington, though the literary career of her bril Ilant husband reached its height long before the civil war. The widow of Jefferson Davis lived until 1006.

WOMAN'S WORLD. THE TOILET. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE TOILET, A well-known woman traveller says: "What amazing toilettes the rich woman makes toiday! Her bath de mands an hour or more; then there's the manicure; then there's the appll. cation, before a Louials Qulnze dressing table, of a dozen unguents and cosmet lea from bottles mounted in old silver, And her actual dressing, the actual putting on of her clothes, hasn't, mark you, begun yet! S"lt all Imakes me think of a shack I once putul at overnlight In the prairle, I rose at daybrealk, and wash ed my face and hands in a. creek be. liifnl the house. *A piece of burlap bag hung from a branch, and I used this as a towel. Then I took a comb from my "pooket. S"A boy of twelve had been watching me with a cynical smile. When he saw my c6mb appear, he could restrain himself no longer. He gave a laugh of acorn and yelled: "'Hey, lady, ain't you a good deal o' trouble to yorself?'
STAR OF NORTHCOTE TENT, I.O.R. A SUCCESSFUL ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
STAR OF NORTHCOTE TENT, I,O,R, I.O.R. A SUCCESSFUIL ANNIVERSARY, If there is any reliance to be placed on statistics, Northcote is one of the most temperate of cities, there having beeoon only eight convictions for drunk onness recorded at the local police court for the year 1918. This is a record to be proud of and may be due, to somo extent, to the existence of ali enthusiastio band of followers of Rochab in the Star of Northcote Tent I.O.R., which body celebrated its 88th anniversary on \\oednesday ovening at the town hall. Thirty-oiglt years of constant effort, directed to one end, mullst leave its mark in the life-history of a community, and the police court record quoted may be taken by the "Star" Lodge as tle ripened fruit of some of its seed-sowings. The "bumnper" house on Wednesday' evening must have been highly gratifying to the commnunitteoe of management, as well as encouraging to tile performers. A concert programmo of high-class qual. ity was sulmitted, and gave entire...

REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES, It is a pathetic thing to see people struggling with reduced circumstances -that is, a reduction of Income, and an inability to live as they have been in the habit of living. But much hleart-break would be slaretd if when such adverse fate comes people would only at once settle down and accept the new 1and smaller income, andti live on what it will easily give thiem, rather than to try to "keep up iaplpearances." Every tday we see p)eople trying to live in a large house with one chealp mnaid-of-all-work, where they lhad kept, and kept busy, Ihree compotenl servants, or even moro- irying to keep up with the society that they call no longer afford to move in, by scrimping anti toiling every where, and having no happiness and no peace and comfort; giving an occa sional dinner or lunch, and going with. out necessaries to pay for them; 1mak Ing over old gowns indefinitely in or dter to accept invitations, and carrying hIearts that ache lharder and Iharder all the t...

Love's Sacrifice, The wild, unearthly, soreamni almost seemedl to stab the silence, and Angus Gaibraith felt a cold shudder pass through him, He held his breath to listen, and once again the cry, as of a soul In distress, rang out clear, chal. longing, At the scame instant, through the gloom hlie caught a glimpse of somec thling white and gleaming, and it flashed along the narrow street, and dlisappeared round one of the houses. "Elsio, Elsie," lie groaned, in the agony of his soul. His mother's words were still ring ing in his ears-that motlher who had leaned on hihn for support in all her years of loneliness, that mother for whlom hlie would have died. He had surely plumbed the depth of human woe and anguish. He staggered into the house like a drunlken man, hardly knowing what hlie was d...

IN LONDON. Cranston's Kenilworth Hotel, Great Russell street, London, W.C., May 1st, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
IN LONDON. Cranston's Kenilworth Hotel, Great Russell street, London, W.C., May 1st, 1914. We got our first glimpse of England yesterday, when tha "Medina" came to anchor in IPlymouth Sound. We had a beautiful first impression of the Old Land. Right at the water's edge was a quaint little village. Rising above and circling round it were the greeonest of green fields, irregularly divided by livo hedges, some of them of yellow gorse, In the still waters, on the other side were numbers of fishing boats, gradually fading away till they wore lost in the fog. It was a lovely nicture, with which all tihe Australians were charmed. We shouhl have had a very lnteresting trip along the south coast, but nothing wan to ho seen (on account of the fog in the English Channel) till we got to the Thames. The passage ldoawn this river wus very slow, the boat going during the last mile or two only at a iail'a pace. Tholugh we were up finishing our packing bhtweon 5 and 6 a.m., wa did not get off the bo...

HYDE PARK. May 3rd. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
HYDE PARK. May 3rd. This (Sunday) morning, wo went to Hyde Park and saw the great parado of wealthy and fashionablo London. It was a lovely spring morning, with a little nip in the air, but the sun shining brightly most of the time. The trees in the beautiful avenues are just coming into loeaf, and everything was looking delightfully fresh and green. Hour upon hour the procession goes by-automobiles, carriages, horse men, horsewomen, pedestrians of overy class-men and womoei as bril liant-looking as Bond and Oxford sts. can make them, side by side sometimes with the seediest. Of the gorgeous kind of women seen in up-to-dato fashion journals, we saw hundreds in the flesh this morning. Many were wonderful "Many were wonderful to behold." to behold. The warm days not having yet arrived, many wore magnificent furs, and these generally had small, round, variously-turned-up .black straw hats, with feathers or other things sticking straight out of them at curi ous angles, giving an extra s...

PRESTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. WELCOME SOCIAL TO REV. W, ARTHUR ROBIERTS. A FINE GATHERING, For the four or five months since the Rev. George Carson accepted the invi tation to the charge at Mornington, the above church has been somewhat handicapped through not having a minister. During that period several candidates conducted services in the church with a view of supplying the call. The Rev. W. Arthur Roberts, who is only a young man, was selected and invited to the charge. The induction service took place in the church on Tuesday evening, June 23, and a welcome social was held in the shire-hall on Tuesday evening last. The interim moderator, Rev. J. T. Robertson (of North Melbourne) who, by the way, conducted the first service in connection with the opening of the Presbyterian church in Preston in the Rechahite hall some 24 years ago, presided over a large gathering of members and friends, amongst whom were the acting presi dent, Cr. and Mrs. Crispe. The new pastor was supported by ...
THE MIGHTY ATOM. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
THIE MIGHTY ATOM. ARciultsioP Clarke has attracted atten tion to the theory of evolution by his sermons at St. Paul's Cathedral on the opening chapter of Genesis. He quoted the opinion of able modern scientists that the Darwinian theory is hopelessly out of accord with the proved results of later-day research. Darwin himself was aware of the want of the link which he believed would'form into one continu ous chain the whole animated creation. If the gap between man and the ape could be bridged by the discovery of an intermediate creature, neither man nor monkey, but partaking of the nature and characteristics of both, then the evolutionary theory would need little further demonstration than that sup plied in the pages of the philosopher's own memorable work on the sub ject. The quest for the "missing link,'" however, proved futile, and it has been demonstrated that the ape is al Smost unresponsive to culture, while be tween it and the lowest form of human kind living on the earth the...
