IMAlC WAND .\IIA MBIIA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. The magic wand-the conductor's baton-at the Alhanlmbra is in new hands (says the Westmlinster Ga zette"). The magician is MIr John An sell, who for seven years has been eltllhlctotr for Mr Cyril M\aude and latterly with Mr Louis Meyer at the s:trand Theatre, andr has climbed to the conductor's desk from a subordin ate place in the orchestra,. When, last Saturday afternoon (De comber 10), MIr Ansell ussumed his new duties, he conducted the Alham bra orchestra and generally took con trol of Alhambra revue and ballot for the first time. But the only re spect in which Alhambra habitues could oblserve any difference from normal hallppenlings was that the pri? cipanls made a point of bowing nicely ---ald quite notlccably-to the con. tltor l) uponl entering the stage, By the middle of this week ev\en the Inost ohservalnt of critics mllg]ht have suppolsed that Mr Ansell had splent his life conducting at the Alhambra.

NORTHERN TRAMWAY EXTENSION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914

NORTHERN TRAMWAY EXTEN. SION. TO TIHE EDITOR. Sir,-Being a resident of the west ward, and one of those who signed the petition in favor of the proposed electric tramin, which I did, not that I was with the petitioners, but simply that I always make it a practice to sign any request that comes along; during the period that this agitation has been in force, I have met numerous rateopayers of the central and west wards who are totally opposed to this wild scheme. Probably if the signed lists were scrutinized, i would be found that nearly 30 per cent. were not on the last roll issued, so I uphold the action of the three council lors by not agreeing to the League's intimation to resign and contest their seats, which wouldtl entail unnecessary expense, because there is not the slight. est doubt they would again be returned with larger majorities than before. You will notice that the most promin ent members of the committee are living in the vicinity of St. George's road, so it follows tha...

FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914

FOX HUNTINi JINGLAND'S OLDEST PACK, The Staintondalo foxhounds have the reputation of being the oldest pack ill the country, it is a claim which does not go unchallenged, even in York shire, but it rests on the authentic ground that a charter was granted by tho Norman King Stephen in the 12th century to some monks in the monast ery of Staintondalo to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on thle moors betwoon that place and Scarborough, "I cannot vouch for this remote an tiquity," said Mr Halllday Iluggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who, as seo retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weeokly"), "I'The farthest we can go back in actual re cords is the memory of an old man of SG, who remembers his grandfahler hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to the beginning of the nineteenth century, and there is a sqong, written in 1811, which commem morates a famous run of that year, so that the hunt can certainly boast a re spectable ago, It is a farmers' hunt first...

The Gold Vultures. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914

The Gold Vultures. By Froed C. Smulo, Jiml Matheson and I sat in a recess sipping our drinks and enjoying the cool stillness. Outside an occasional cart rumbled by, and once a flock of sheep plaintively bleated their way past bound for some green fields outside the town. No one else was in the private bar and I think we wer both nearly asleep when the glas door at the far end swung open and a bulky motorist en tered. He removed his goggles, and, as he blinked relievedly. I saw that one eye was missing. A crimson patch of flesh showed where the goggles had oen, but a white layer of dust costed the remainder of the new-comer from clap toto too, After the glare outside our corner was probably dark to him, and I could see that we woro unobserved. "A large, long drink, missio," he said in a fat, husky voice. "Same as you brewed for me this morning." I felt Jim start and nudge me quiet ly. I looked at him, but he mlotioned me to remain silent. Producing a pen cil he wroto on the marble to...

Nor did the torrid r atmosphere damp the enthusiasm oft patrons, their favourite itemn-and they I seemed nearly all favourites-beingi applauded to the echo and vociferously encored. If there was some falling away as regards quality and interest in the previous concert, the programme of the one under notice made ample amends., Amriongst those engaged was Miss Louie Dunn, an elocutionist of real talent and unusual versatility.

NORTHCOTE PARK STAND. FOUNDATION STONE LAID. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914

NORTHCOTE PARK STAND. FOUNDATION STONE LAID. Northcote possesses a capital sports ground. For the popular pastimes of cricket and football there are few better, Its one great drawback has been the want of a proper stand, equipped with dressing and retiring rooms. But a stand that can be extended as the years pass and funds are available .has been designed, and the first section is now in course of erection. The estimated cost of the stand when complete is £8000, and the first section will run into about one-third of that amount, ' On Saturday ,ast, at the invitation of the president and comhittee of the Northcote Cricket Club, a large assem blage of townspeople attended to wit ness the interesting ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the new stand, which was performed by Mr. W.

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES, Open out the soil and dig in a few pounds of kalnit (German pot ash), It will keep them away, and kill a number by contact, at the same time acting as a good manure. Bisulphate of carbon would not last long enough: it would certainly kill all the white ants that came in con tact with it, 'but if put too close might kill the trees too, and it would be ex-pensive. Apterlte is of little value in dealing with white ants. Mr, Froggart (Government E?ntomolo gist) says hlie has seen tree3 with the whole of the inner portion of the trunk piped by white ants, but the bark and sapwood alive and growing crops of fruit, the only danger being that they may snap off in a wind, tie has known good bearing trees in this State which are almost hollow, but after they had been opened and clean ed out and the cavity filled with ce ment (folrmning a solid central col. unu) trees have lived for years.

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing, The whole secret in rearing profit. able pigs is to get well.bred ones, and by consistent feeding keep them going without a cheek until they are sent to market. Perhaps the most prolific breeds are Berkshires, York. shires, and TPamworths. Excellent 'baconers are obtained by crossing Tamworths and Berkshires. There is no dubt that the Berkshires are general favorites, but It must be re membered that the favorite does not always 'win the cup; and, after giving the Berkshires credit for many good points, it will, perhaps, cbe found that the most uaseful types are the Middle York and the York.Berkshire cross, because the Yorkshire will grow In. to a first-grade bacon pig on less feed than any other breed, and in less time, In crossing Yorklshires and Berkshirea, it 4s found to be the best plan to use the Berkshire boar, because the Yorkshire sow is a bet. ter mother than the Berkshire, and requires very little to keep her in condition between litters, t...
