AGAIN AT LONDON, WMay 19th, 1911. We put in a very cosmopolitan sort of day on Sunday. First of all we went to Petticoat Lane, down White chapel way, the lowest part of Lon lon, and afterwards to Hydo Park, thus getting the contrast of the East End and the \Vest-thle poor and thti low and the rich, the leisured, and the fashionable.

ST. GEORGE'S ROAD TRAMWAY. THE PRESTON VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

ST. GEORGE'S ROAD TRAMWAY, THE PRESTON VIEW. The Preston view of the proposed extension of tramway facilities along St. George's road was clearly put by councillors on Monday evening, on the reception of a deputation from the Northern Tramway Extension League, requesting co-operation in a deputation to the Premier. The deputation was very favorably received, and the various speakers put the case from the League's stand point, Cr. Robertson said that, in his opinion, the best route had not been chosen, as a private road had been utilised, which might cause trouble subsequently, whereas the line might be branched at Bell street, going along a public high way. Cr. Allchin, in moving that a com mittee be appointed to co-operate with the deputation, strongly favored an extension along St. George's road, and urged that as many councillors and' ratepayers as possible should attend. Cr. Crispe, acting president, said that the council was practically unanimous as to the St. George's road rou...

CITY AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

CITY AND COUNTRY. The country districts are sighing for rain, the lack of which presages bad times to the producer in general. Last month, June, was phenomenally dry, and though July has opened with a promise of better results as regards rainfall, up to the present the shortage is serious. In the northern and north eastern. districts April rains are looked to as indicating prosperity; June rains, as coming in time to save the crops; but there has seldom been an experience such as the present, of a practically rainless June, following on dry condi tions in April and May. A serious con dition must result in the pastoral and growing areas, which will, in time, react on the city industries. Both.hel bourne and suburbs, however, continue to grow with wonderful rapidity, and there is no sign of slackening in any direction. The building operations along High street, Northcote, supply an example of the faith city dwellers have in the permanance of their surroundings anid the fixity of indus...

MARBLES AND SKIPPING-ROPES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

MARBLES AND SKIPPING-ROPES. Messrs Cook and Fisher, the leaders of Government and Opposition respec tively, have spoken, and the smaller fry will now take up their election choruses on public platforms. Electors may, therefore, surfeit themselves during the forthcoming weeks with the jargon that passes for politics. Good old "tariff reform" will do duty on many platforms, again affording an asylum of refuge for windy orators who wish to say nothing very impressively. Then, specially dressed for this occasion, there are sev oral comparatively modern phrases, such as "elective ministries," "initia tive referendum," "preference to unionists," "equal opportunities to all," "the AGE is for it," "the AGE is against it," and many other symbols of sound and fury-signifying nothing, These simply be sticks and straws thrust into electors' hands by dextrous politicians. By the aid of such phrases "politics" is made possible to the people-for elec tion purposes chiefly. The words are so many ma...

SURPRISE AMONG THE SPARROWS. BIRDS FRIGHTENED BY AEROPLANE, The flying feats of M. Guillaux In and around Melbourne sent constern ation into the bird kingdom, And small wonder!

How interesting, too, to watch the gathering together of the sl)arrows. Swarms, thousands strong, restless and all agitation, A novel sight, indeed-sparrowland united to repel the invader! Poor, dirty, chirpy, oheerful sparrow, with what dismay he views the advent of the "new bird," to him at least the most harm loss; but this he knoweth not, nor will he know, until in, the great uni versity of Nature he learns that his fear-torture is without foundation. Of this he will, like the human, become aware after living for a time in fear and trembling; he will learn that an Iicipated troubles are often far great,...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

LADIES' LETTER, From "Irene" in Melbourne. Miss Eadith Walker's offer of her place, "Yaralla," at Concord, in Syd ney, as a home for the new Governor. General, was a bomb in the social camp. Unlike the suffragists' bombs, this one was packed with love of country-Scotch country-and when It burst everyone was filled with ad. nliration and curiosity, There was a general rush to find out more about the lady. Because Miss Walker has been for twenty years or so in the public eye as a millionairess, the rising genera. tion has an idea that she is on the shady side of time. Well, she is not. She is at high noon-just fifty years on one hundred. Miss Walker's king ness to young girls in society, who have little means, has for long been a matter of admiring comment. A trip to England for such is a quite usual gift. I do not know if plainness shuts a girl out from such generosity as a jaunt in Europe, but it is a fact that the girls who are known to have gone as Miss Walker's guests were all pr...
