MIRTH AND MYSTERY. AT THE NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 18 July 1914

MIRTH AND MYSTERY. AT THE NORTHCOTE THEATRE. Speaking of Dr. Rowe and Mora, a contemporary says:-"A large and ap preciative audience assembled at the Empire Theatre to witness the first ap pearance of Dr. Rowe, hypnotist and sleight of hand artist, and Mora, an ac complished clairvoyant and medium. The entertainment was one of the most mystifying performances given in the town for some time. It was also very amusing. The first part of the pro gramme consisted of a series of conjur ing and sleight of hand tricks by Dr. Rowe, who proved himself to be a past master in the art. The first half of the programme concluded with a mysterious cabinet. Several gentlemen from the audience bound Mora firmly to a chair, and thus bound she was placed inside the cabinet. A handkerchief belonging to a member of the committee was passed over the top of the cabinet, and when the screen was drawn the hand kerchief was found knotted round the medium's neck, and she was still bound to the chair. A member...

GUILLAUX AND GENESIS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 18 July 1914

GUILLAUX AND GENESIS. TIE assemblage at Flemington on Thursday morning, to witness the start of MA. Guillaux on his warial flight to Sydney, marks an epoch in Australian history, just as the monunient of the ill fated Burke and Wills expedition, which stands in the Royal Park, bears silent witness of its own great tragedy-epoch of pioneering days. It was to open up the land-ways of Australia that the lat ter expedition set forth, from almost the place at which M. Guillaux this week leaped from land into the air, He is the pioneer of a new traffic-line that, in the days to come, is going to open up Aus tralia in a way undreamed-of, even by the present generation, but which would have been scoffed at as a lunatic dream when camels and horses stood for the word "go" at the Burke and Wills attempt to conquer the land a few short years ago. On the present occasion all that was to be seen ht Flemington was @ spread of canvas designed some what in the form of a bird, a screw shaped propell...

Preston P.L.C. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 18 July 1914

Preston P.L.CO. A meeting of the above was held in the Rechabite hall on Thursday evening, 9th, Mr. E. Lewis presiding. lThere was a good attendance, and it was evident that the interest generated by the peculiar political complications now existing is not likely to abate until the solution comes from the appeal to the people. There was a serious debate as to the best methods of utilising the impending elections as a fulcrum for many reforms that have remained in abeyance. Mr. DI)eslandes, who was present, delivered an address on topical questions, his pleasant manner and genial style commanding attention and applause. The various reports from delegates disclosed that the I?ossibility of fricton was reduced to a minimum. A progress report of the secretary was to the effect that the revenue for the half-year would be a record, viz., £100.

THE ROMANCE OF SILVER Wonderful Tale of the Comstock Lode Which Outrivals the Wildest Fiction. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 18 July 1914

THE ROMANCE OF SILVER Wonderful Tale of the Comatock Lode Which Outrivals the Wildest " Fiction, There is no fiction dealing with the finding of treasure which can com. pare with the plain facts concerning the Comstock Lode, The wonderful eaves of Aladdin pale into insignifi cance before the treasures held in California's "Snowy Range," the Sier ra Nevada. A few barren acres of that sterile land have yielded far greater treasures than any similar area in the world, for the rocks were practically masses of silver, That great ledge of silver, the Com stock Lode, drove wild the imagina tion of the coolest, and men went mad from the very existence of the unfath. omable treasure. The Big Bonanza, alone, for three yeare yielded £600,000 a month, and as the depth of the mines increased, so did the wealth. As the shafts went down the ore was found deeper and wider than be. fore, until at last the depths became too hot for human existence, and the levels became filled with suiphurous steam, ...

Congenlal. Hie had been going from church to church trying to find a congenial con grogation, and finally he stopped in a little church just as the congregation read with the minister: "We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done." The man dropped into a pew with a sigh of relief. "Thank goodness," he said, "I've found my crowd at last." The true way to be humble is not to atop till thou art smaller than thy. a If, but to stand at thy real height against some higher naturo that shall show thee what tht real smallness of thy greatness is,.
