Town Band's Patriotic Concert.

The proceedings opened with a piece, uuju uu yuyo, uy tuts juiuiguw -dunuxeur Orchestral Society, under the baton of Mr. A. Thompson. It was a lovely item, the various instruments blending beautifully. The Town Band then gave one of their pleasing items, 'Andante in G.' — some soul ful music resulting. The band played as one harmonious whole. Mr. Val. Mortlock was in good voice in 'Alone on he Raft.' Mrs. Fairhurst was splendid in the recita tion, 'How Leige Held the Road.' The Methodist Choir then rendered 'And the Glory of the Lord,' which was executed splendidly, except that the tenors were weak —if this section could be remedied they would have one of the best choirs in town.

The latter scored repeatedly with straight lefts and with rights to the body. His attack was varied with left hooks and right chops to the Vinari King vainly endeavored to save himself by clinching, but he found Darcy scoring free ly at close work. In the fifth round a heavy right sent King along the rop'es, but the gong saved him. Although King scored occasionally, he was obviously overmatched. Darcy, the win ner, improves at each publ...

SCHOOL FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 19 June 1915

SCHOOL FOOTBALL. In the fifth round of the Thompson Cup .competition, Gordons beat Wanderers 2 to nil, All Blacks beat Federals 7 to 4, and Waratahs beat Rovers 2 to 1. The football this week was not of such a high class as that of the previous weeks. This was mainly owing to the wet grounds. It was extremely difficult to obtain a foot iold, and it was no uncommon occurrence to see a boy slide yards when he strucK :a wet patch. Gordons played Wanderers on the new .soccer ground, but the slippery nature of foothe ground militated against good foot ball. The Gordons did well to stop the Wanderers from scoring. They possess two tine backs in Clark and Bruton, whilst Cart wright is the makings of a dandy hair, McKibbin, who is captain of 'the Wanderers, Is the star forward of the team, but is not supported by his other forwards. Doig plays a fair game at full back, but sadly loses his head when bustled. The Waratahs, with nine men, defeated the moot in and out team of the competi tion—t...

WOMAN'S COLUMN. SOME USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 19 June 1915

WOMAN'S COLUMN. CONDUCTED BY 'MAVIS.' 1 SOME USEFUL HINTS. Cold cream is a very useful application for cracked lips, and also for keeping the bands soft and free from chaps. Although it looks like lard, it is altogether different, and lard cannot be used in its place, since the salt of lard proves irritating to a ten der skin. To make cold cream, place equal Quantities of olive oil and shredded white wax in a jar and stand it in a saucepan of boiling water. Stir the mixture occasion ally, and when the white wax is dissolved add a few drops of oil of bergamot or otto of roses to give it an agreeable perfume. Store the cold cream in covered pots, or, better still, in ' collapsible tubes. By using the tubes the cream cannot be contaminated by dirty fingers.

To such a man the noisy din Of traffic may not enter in, For bargain-hunterB by the score Shall pass nor heed his dingy door; For, though his sign is on the wall, And on some barn yard gate a scrawl.

And when he dies) go plant him deep, That naught may break his dreamless sleep. Where no rude clamour may dispel The quiet that he loved...
