WITH PRESTON'S PRETTY ONES. THE SPINSTERS' DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 1 August 1914
WITH PRESTON'S PRETTY ONES. THE SPINSTERS' DANCE, What is there in a dance that it should retain perennial attractions for young and old finder all climes and conditions? Maybe because the dance is based on spinning round. Seems a poor explanation-doesn't it? But be it noted that nearly every game that man or woman indulges in depends on something "spinning round ?" The boy plays with round marbles or top, the cricketer with solid leather ball, the tennis gil and boy with hollow ball; baseball, billiards, football, bowls, nine pins-all depend for their attractiveness on something round going round. Quoits, rounders, too; and even the homely skipping-rope has to revolve before it becomes a plaything. Now do we see why dancing survives? It is part of the glorious spin of the universe-of the earth-of man himself -and woman. Ah, there we have it-man and woman, in Tennyson's elegant diction, 'set to each other like perfect music unto noble words," form the crowning blossom of creation. T...

THE EUROPEAN CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 1 August 1914
THI~E EUROPEAN CRISIS. AGAIN that "devil's cauldron," the Eastern question, is belching sulphurous fumes, and the eyes of the world are turned in that direction, in speculation as to the extent of human life to be called for. The recent war.toll did not, it appears, clear the atmosphere in dip lomatic centres; indeed it is hardly to be expected It could do so, in view of the number of years the problem has per plexed European counsels, and the con tinuous drafts it has made on cannon food, The present convulsion, in which Servia and Austria are primaries, may yet possibly be localised by the media tion of the Great Powers, and every hour's delay in the progress of events affords a chance to chancelleries and and people to recover "poise" and beat back ape and tiger instincts, which, once set free, might involve the blotting out of civilization. With all our boasted progress in education and enlightnient generally, it must be confessed that mankind, taken as a whole, responds but slo...

Unimpressed. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 1 August 1914
Unimpressed. With the boundless enthusiasm of his kind, the food faddist harangued the mob on the marvellous results to be obtained from chewing soap and cating nut butter. "Friends," he cried, swelling visibly, and slapping his chest, "two years ago I was a walking skeleton-a haggard, miserable wreck. What do you sup. pose brought about this great change in me?" He paused to see the effect of his: words. Then a voice from amongst. his listeners: "Wot change?" "It was simply a question of vera. city between us," said the oldest in habitant. "He said I was a liar, and I said he was one." "Humph l" rejoined the village post. master. "That's the first time I ever heard either of you speak the truth," Beauty is all very well at first sight, but who ever looks at it when it has been in the house throe days?

Preston P.L.C. --- " A meeting of the above was held at Rechabite hall on Thursday evening, 23rd. Mr. Davidson, president, occupied the chair, and there was a good atten dance, evincing keen interest in the proceedings, Many participated in the discussions on the varied and important matters submitted for consideration. The question of contesting the municipal elections provided an animated debate, but in view of two elections, Federal and State, that would incur a deal of work on the executive, it was decided to defer.direct opposition till a future date, It was contended that, with the advent of a Labor Government, many glaring anomalies would be adjusted. It was thought by a number that the August elections could be availed of to to wipe out the ward system, and a propaganda for that purpose is probable the following being stated as reasons: (1)-Councillors do not represent the shire as a whole, and are only respon sible fortho ward they represent; (2) The ward system is responsi...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 1 August 1914
FOOTBALL. Northcote suffered a crushing defeat by Footscray at Croxton on Saturday last, The latter, who tie with North Melbourne on points, but are behind on percentages, came out with the full in tention of improving their average, and Northcote suffered as a consequence. Up to half-time the visitors had all the best of the play, though Northcote had missed many opportunities for scor ing, the weakness of their forward line -as in many previous matches-being their undoing. At the interval the scores were-Footscray, 8.8; Northcote, 1.7. The third quarter was the best contested of the day, Footscray scoring 4.7 to Northcote's 3.5. In the last quarter, however, F6otscray showed their superiority ,by adding 7.5 to the locals' 1.2. Final result-Footscray, 19.20; Northcote, 5.14.

No Fighting on His Field. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 1 August 1914
No Fighting on His Field, It was a sleepy little village, with but one claim to fame. It had been the scene of a great battle centuries ago, and every now and then stran. gers would come to gaze on the field of war, and dig furtively for relics which the canny natives had careful. ly buried in readiness for them. As one old gentleman approached the village, lie saw a lad sitting on a stile. "My lad," he asked politely, "is this the field upon which the great battle was fought?" "No, sir," replied the lad; "that be at the top of the hill." "Dear, dearl" replied the old gen tleman, playfully, "That hill must be iluite a mile away. Why ever didn't they faiht It In this field?" The lad looked at him dully as he shook his head. "Dunno, sir," he said slowly, "'less it be as this yer field belongs to Far. mer Giles, 'oo never will lend his field for anything, not even for the village sportsal"

Up-to-date Romance. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 1 August 1914
Up-to-date Romance. It was a secluded corner, hemmed in with palms and fairy-lights, calm, cool and restful. In the distance could be heard the strains of a band, playing a slow rapturous waltz. The very air breathed with romance. "Do you realise what it would mean if I were to give you such a beauti ful ring?" he asked her softly. She thought she did; but instead of saying so-for she wished to hear him say those blessed words himself-she cooed a gentle "What? What would it mean?" "It would mean," he said, as he rose to his feet, "that I should have to live on sixpenny lunches and wear old clothes for a year," A young constable joined the police force in Scotland, and in the course of duty found it essential to arrest a very olI offender, Arrived at the police-station he ushered him into the cells with the comment, "Mind the step." "Gae awn'," said the prisoner, with contempt. "I kent the step afore ye was born.":
