Strand Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916
Strand Theatre. The beautiful and commodious Strand can very truly be termed the theatre that booms, for at every session, even in the day time, the theatre is comfortably filled, and more often packed. The answer must be found in the excellent selection of pictures that Senora Spencer presents. It is safe to assume, however, that the motion pictures to be displayed at the Strand during the week, commencing next Monday, will easily eclipse any that have hitherto been seen in Newcastle. On Monday, "The Miracle of Life," described as the greatest film of all time will be screened. This tells of a woman who, being wrapped up in society and absorbed with the pleasures that that environment affords, was too latent to bring a child into the world. Her husband divorced her — and he had good grounds for doing so — and he went his way and she hers. The moral of the story is powerful and telling in the extreme, and it is safe to say that if anyone is bit by the denouement, that it is because ...
Junior Football. NORTHERN v. CENTRAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916
Junior Football. NORTHERN v. CENTRAL. Central won the toss and de- cided to kick with the wind. Dur- &nbsp; ing the first half Northern took up &nbsp; the defence and found little trouble in keeping off Central's wild at- tacks. After some futile attempts at goal Herron at last landed one, which was not before time. North- ern then picked up their scattered wits and rushed into Central's 25. Here a scrum was ordered, and Northern receiving the ball a chain-like passing rush was insti- tuted by Parker, which ended in Darcy (Northern's promising wing three-quarter) going over with a try. Hayes failed at goal. The rest of the half was confined to play about mid-field ; the score being 3 to 2 in favour of Northern. In the second half, Northern im- mediately attacked having the wind behind them. They received a fair share of the ball (Brown must have taken the garden rake on this half) and some fine passing rushes was witnessed. From one of these rushes Darcy was forced i...
Local Boy Poet Unearthed. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916
Local Boy Poet Unearthed. Concerning the boy John Dick, who wrote the Ode to the Death of Lord Kitchener, published in last issue of the "Argus," the following &nbsp; facts of the young genius, received at this office from his friend, E.A., will be read with interest: — John Dick is 14 ½ years old and stands 6 feet in his boots. He attended Wickham School and won a qualifying certifi- cate when 10 years, and a bursary at 11 years. His literary genius has asserted itself on more than one occasion, and his prose writings have excited comment from all who have read them. His essay on the Trade's Fair won the High School competi- tion, and surprised the judges con- siderably. It is hard to believe that he is only 14 years of age. What- &nbsp; ever he writes purely out of a love of writing and literature. He gives his poems to his friends, and I think he doesn't know just what number of poems he really has written. His nature is poetical — alternately gay and melancholy. ...
Taken Down by Spielers in a Race Train. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916
Taken Down by Spielers in a Race Train. Three spielers took down a couple of Dungog visitors going to the Tuggerah Park pony races while in the train. The trio introduced the three-card trick, and reaped about £36 in a few minutes. One of the spielers, with the money in his pocket, left the train in a hurry at Wyee, while the other confeder- ates remained in the train practi- cally penniless. The taken-down couple came from Dungog to back a Dungog pony, Diffident, winner, and the intended backers were cleared out so effectually that they hadn't ten bob left to punt. Although newspapers have given frequent warning concerning spiel- ers in trains and elsewhere, some- how the army of dupes never de- crease. In the game the outsider has no chance. The cards used are heavy and thick, and are chemically prepared. The dupe is not allowed to turn the cards himself. This is done by one of the confederates. He bends the card, before he lifts it, and the &nbsp; colour of the card chang...
Rugby Football. Two Clubs Out on Their Own. OTHER ASPIRANTS' UPHILL EFFORT. CENTRES DESERTED AT AN OPPORTUNE TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916
Rugby Football. Two Clubs Out on Their Own. &nbsp; OTHER ASPIRANTS' UPHILL EFFORT. CENTRES DESERTED AT AN OPPORTUNE TIME. (BY OUR SPECIAL) &nbsp; &nbsp; By the conditions brought about by war, the efforts to maintain the same fighting strength in the senior grade competition as in seasons when the atmosphere was clear, has flat- &nbsp; &nbsp; tened to the extent I anticipated in early Rugby writings. &nbsp; It served no good purpose en- deavouring to build Leagueites minds &nbsp; up for something that, to those who &nbsp; could see ahead, would never be, &nbsp; therefore the suggestions that ap- &nbsp; peared in these columns, although condemned at the time, would have been more in keeping with a pro- gramme had four centres gone into the field instead of five. Neither Southern, Eastern, or Cen- tral have been comfortable since entering upon their mission ; the need for strength in the ranks caus- ing th...
