CRICKET. NORTHCOTE V. I'KAIIliAN. Upon winning the toss at Northcotc, Prahran had first use of a snlendid wic ket. Northcotc mado a goon beginning, as with the score at 20 Cusdin, who had made ltf, was bowled by Lugton. With only added Vernon caught Carney off Lugton for*l. Immediately afterwards Healy was missed by Vernon off Lugton, and the miss proved a most expensive one, as Healy and Stephens adcled 283 runs without being separated. For tho first three hours the scoring was very slow. After two hours' batting there was only 00 runs on the board, and at the end of three hours 1 HO. After this the batting was more attractive, and when stumps were drawn the score stood at MS. Henley was missed bv Chesswas.and through a misunderstand ing between Hiseox and Lugton was again let off, as neither fieldsmen went for what was an easy catch.

WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

WAIL'OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WIIO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS There la a common fallacy In tho public mind that the bank clcrk has u soft job, and an cany time (says "Ono of Them" in "Tho Daily Express"). Tho tradition Is that ho wears a morning coat and top hat,' travels "first," leisurely strolls into tho pala tini portals of his business abode about 10 a.m., and leaves at 4 sharp. It will doubtless take time to eradicate this traditional figure from the public mind and put in its place tho bank clerk as he really is—a hard-worked toiler whoso hours are Ion#, and whoso pay is generally qulto luadeciuate to keep up the respectability expected of him. It must bo remembered that the small percentage of managerships and higher appointments are reserved, in most cases, for those who have friends at court—tho court of directors. The ordinary young-man, upon entering the service of a bank, can ojily look for ward to at least 10 years* iiard labor. If he should reach tho age of Go ho ' may bo permit...

THEATRE CRISIS COUNTER ATTRACTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

THEATRE CRISIS COUNTKU ATTRACTIONS The theatres of Paris are, it ap pears, in a very parlous way (says the Paris, correspondent of "The Daily Tolegraph" on December 16). Tho cinema, the music-hall, und now, last but not least, the tango, have hit them very hard in that vulnerable point, the box-oUlce. In "The Gil Bias" this morning a wail of humorous distress is raised by M. Gabriel Astruc, who is fully quali fied to speak as founder and director of that grandiose enterprise, the Theatre des Champs Elysees, which closed its doors a week or two ago after live months' existence. Tho question of why his own en terprise has foundered, und so many others are perilously near the rocks, M. Astruc answers by the following anecdote:— One evening about six o'clock I met one of my friends, a grave and re verend slgnor. 1 suggested that we should make a little fooling—entente cordlale English for "Go for a consti tutional"—till dinnertime. "impossible," he replied with deci sion. "Why?" I asked...

NORTHCOTE-PRESTON ELEC TRIC- LIGHT AGREEMENT. TIIE ADDITIONAL COST OF CABLE. Fink, Heat and Hall wrote to the Preston council on Monday evening for warding a letter they had received from the Northcote council's solicitors (D. II. Heftild and Son) to the effect that they hiul just heard from their clients that there were some questions still unsettled as to payment, in con nection with cables, which would require adjustment before the agreement is executed. The intimation surprised them (Messrs Herald and Son) as they thought the parties had themselves settled the terms of the agreement. They (Fink, Best and Mall) would like instructions, as they were not aware of any matter requiring adjustment. The president (Cr. Braithwaite) said he was prcent nt the conference when the matter was lirst mentioned by Northcote.

NORTHCOTE PICTURE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

NORTHCOTE PICTURE THEATRE. This house of entertainment has been rich in attractions lately. The pro gramme on Saturday evening last would have done credit to any metropolitan theatre.

The two bills this week have also fairly bristled with interest. This afternoon and even ing patrons will have the last opportun ity of seeing " Trooper Billy," a Kalum war special, also a delightful Japanese romance, "The Oath ot O'Tusa San," and the uproariously comic, " His Sis ter's Kids."

Or. Allchin, in seconding the motion, said that he also felt very, very pleased, as lie had anticipated that the rate would have to be raised to 2s 2d or 2s 3d.
