JIKA NO-LICENSE LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 20 June 1914

JIK A NO-LICENSE LEAGUE. Last week was a busy one for the league. On Thursday, June 11, a big rally was held in the Congregational church, where Mr. Membrey said the great fight was between now and 1917, as there was a strong movement to take away the right of local option and sub stitute the present License Reduction Board with added powers. The Rev. C. Benson Barnett emphasised the fact that judges and doctors agreed that drink causes 70 per cent, of our crime, a great deal of disease, and nearly all divorce. A first-class programme was supplied. Mrs. Brandon gave an ex cellent recitation. The singing of Messrs Ahern and Hainrnett was loudly applauded. A duet by Miss McCulloch and Mrs Forme, and an item by the FiUroy Quartette party were highly appreciated. The choir sang a sweet anthem. On Saturday evening the annual meeting was held in the Methodist school hall, High street. It was the best gathering the league has held, nearly all the churches and temperance organisations in th...

FEMALE DETECTIVES. The adoption of women rb police limy be followed by a simflnr course In London. Scotland Yard, however, has, of course, employed women for years, and one of the officials there told au Interviewer recently that It is prolmblo yftt more women will bo employed In the future to deal with " certain kiiulB of Inquiries and cases. .

EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 20 June 1914

EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG. By a Mother. For nil purposes of permanent In fluence, no period Is like childhood and youth. And a man's youth, (or moral Improvement, lasts the whole of his allotted lifetime on earth. Some young people grow old too fast for tholr highest advantage. They think they have, finished their education while yet in their teens. And some mothers foolishly grant practical ad mission to the idea. But education Is never finished so long as opportunity continues, however early It may com mence. The whole'of this short life may be called the period of youth for purposes of Improvement. It Is the period that determines the- weal or woe that comeB after It. And of this brief probation the first half Is gen erally decisive of all that follows. The shape of the tree is that which It took when a twig. "The child is father to the man," simply because the man is formed In childhood. Old age is generally tho ripe fruit of which childhood and youth aro the seed-time and period o...

POLITENESS IN THE HOME. It Is slgnlHcant to obsorve how some men full to know how to treat their wives and Hlstors when they meet litem. It seems to them quite unnecessary to lift their hats, or to give heir nearost niul doarcBt the courtesy they would freely , rondor to liny woman outside of the domestic circle. .This should not be, and Llto sooner a'revolution Is accomplished the hot ter. The ablest and most persuasive treatise on the etiquette of tho home will not be nblo by ilsolf to work tho change, alhough II would be helpful towards (hap end. What Is needed is tlie right (raining of boys and girls. Courteous behavior should be en forced by parents in the same way as oilier good qualities are taught.

DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. Most people suppose (says an as saycr) ; that all gold Is .alike wlten re fined: but tills Is not the ease. Ail experienced man can tell at a glance from what , part ot the world a gold pieces comes, and In some caseH rrom what part of a particular gold district the metal was obtained. The Australian gold, for inst#ice, is dis tinctly redder than the California!!, and this difference In color Islilways perceptible, even when the gold is 1000 flue,. Again, the gold obtained from the placers Is yellower than that which Is taken directly from quartz. Why this should be the case is one of tho mysteries of metallurgy, for tho pla cer gold all comes from the veins. The Ural , gold is tho. reddest found any where. Few people know the real color of gold as It is seldom seen unless heav ily alloyed which rendors It redder than when pure.
