NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 6 June 1914
NORTHCOTE THEATRE. A splendid bill will bo presented to night. "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." Of all Ouida's works, none achieved greater popularity than "Moths, " and none was more adaptable for cinemato graph reproduction. The management are fortunate in securing this marvel lous photo play, which commences' Mon day afternoon at the King's Birthday matinee, and will be shown three nights following. The usual complete change will be made on Thursday, June 11th. The star picture is "The Two Ser geants," a magnificent Napoleonic story of love and war. The film is re plete with dramatic incidents, while some of the seenes, especially those of the camp, will be found to be excessive of beauty and overwhelming interest. A great treat is in store for patrons on Monday, June Ifith, when Charles. Dickens great masterpiece "David Cop per/ield will be...
CHRYSANTHEMUM FAIR AT PRESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 6 June 1914
CHRYSANTHEMUM FAIR AT PRESTON. A home feeling might have come to the "little brown man if lie had been present nt the I'reston shire hall on Thursday afternoon, for sunny Japan, the land of the chrysanthemum, was much ill 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 tlieni 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 wore, of course, many capable and wiling helpers, both ladies and gentlemen, who are all to be complimented...

LADIES' COLUMN. .8HOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT / Should old love-letters be kept? . ■ Most, people would say; If asked tho 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— 11' you wajit peace. &lt; ■ A love-letter Is sure to be, read sooner or later, however carefully you .may hide It; however emphatically you may deny its oxlstonce. This Is one reason why married people should not keep old love-letters—they nro sure to be found. The next is obvi ous. A woman can't forgive a rival, and a man wl'l not. . It Is unreasonable really, but there It is, and you have to acco'pt tilings n's they are -In this life. It Is unreas; onable of tho man, .because If he comes to think about It, a vanquish ed host adds glory to himself, but he is still afraid tho other.man will cut him out.

The hours when n man communes with His own soul are sacred, and none may spy upon theni. Hugh could have told no mini— perchance'lie would not have dared to tell his own dear wife, how lie spent the night of the vigil, or what mes sage the darkness had for him. At daybreak ho walked in St. James Park—the fuller hours of the morn ing found him pacing the Strand with the will of one who could have hurst open the great doors through which Bhe must pass.

Father's Dilemms. A parent's life is one long responsi bility. It's a wonder that so many of the genus discharge their duties so ac ceptably. A writer has discovered another parental problem; or perhapB ho merely calls attention to one which many fathers havo discovered for themselves. "How's tho family?" one Inquired of a happily married man. "Well, my children are at a dim cult age now." "Difficult? Why, they've all passod tho measles and teething stage, have they not?" "Long ago. But you don't know a father's troubles. My children are at the age where if I use slang my wlfo says I'm setting a bad example, and if I spealt correctly, tho kids think I'm a back number.

Honal-Smlth had taken her to the . South that very morning; ho was to leave her with her parents at the "gato" of Nnnte ville, and then to return with all dili gence to London to "settle your af fair," as he said to Hugh with much feeling.

in. There was another letter sent on toy Geraldino, and this from one whom Hugh had not expected to In dulge In the candor of correspond . once: St. Denys was In Ills old cham bers In, .Termyn-streot, and there ho fretted and fumed against the world, and the women who helped to people the world. What had he done to de serve" all this? ho asked. Why even his own son waB being turned against him. He meant to put that straight —to have a private tutor for the boy, and to see that these infernal women "didn't coddle him any longer. It was quite pathetic to read between the lines, and to see how this aristo crat "derelict desired the very sym pathies he had done so much to alien ate. "Prove, to me that there was nothing between Patty and this man Herosford, and I will take her back to-morrow," ho wrote. "It's for tho boy's sako, for I do really bellevo Bhe's in love with me, and that's a fact." ■ Ills other protestations proved, as " Mat IMichel said afterwards, that the -devil had been ...
