OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 31 January 1914
OBITUARY. I . I We regret having to record the death of Mr. K Buttler, which took place at the Melbourne hospital on 29th January. Mr. Buttler has been in indifferent health for two years, and the cause of his death was heart failure. He was one of the oldest natives of Northcote, having been born here in 1852, and he subsequently resided in the town for upwards of GO years. In connection with the Northcote Methodist Church and Sunday School he was a tireless and indefiitigablu worker, and took special interest some years back in the celebra tion of the church's jubilee, being one of the few who had had a continuous connection from its inception. Of an exceptionally bright and cheerful dis dosition the late Mr. Buttler was popu lar with all. Four years ago he removed to Montrose, where he had purchased a business, but misfortune in the shape of accident and sickness seemed to dog his steps, ending in what seems, remember ing his great activity a few years back, a premature breakdown...
SECOND ELEVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 31 January 1914
SECOND ELEVEN. | This eleven was weakened through the absence of seven of its players, whose places were filled from the elub eleven. | The only interest in the game therefore was whether any of the younger players were capable of filling places in the higher elevens. Melbourne, batting the whole of Saturday afternoon and part of Monday, amassed the huge total of 4 for '11(3, chiefly through a lenient field, as each of the Imtsmen who scored gave chances early in their innings. Taylor 155, Onyam 102, and Slintol't 133 were the run-getters. Burley 2 for -I and Yeomans2 for 1)4 secured the wickets. Unfortunately on the Monday the young players had very little opportunity of displaying their powers, as the wicket was in an almost unplayable condition. The onlv batsmen to reach double figures being Heron 21, Dunn 11, Yeomans 10, and Hamilton 10.

How many of the strongest advocates of the proposal would liko to invest tlioir own money in it? And yet they would thrust it on the municipality, anil lot the coun cil ...
