IN CHARITY'S CAUSE. The Mayor and Mayoress of North !ote, assisted by willing citizens, are :o-operating with the Druids of the "Ietropolis in raising funds on behalf of Lhe Austin Hospital for Incurables. Locally the effort consists of a series 3f entertainments, the first of which eventuated last Saturday evening in the town hall. It took the form of a first class concert, and the artists engaged had the pleasure of appearing before a very large and appreciative audience. A couple of quartets, "A Hunting Song" and "Swear to he Good and True" were so harmoniously rendered by Madame Ashley, Miss Lillian Adams and Messrs James Wade and Charles Ltdward that nothing would satisfy till two additional numbers were given, and the " Miser ore " duct by Madame Ashley and Mr. Wade was so finely given that it had to be repeated. Another delightful num ber was the duet, "Venetian Boat Song," by Miss Adams and Mr. Led ward. Mr. Reginald Brown played a piano solo, "Marche Hongroise" in vigorous ...

PENDER'S GROVE ESTATE. CONSTRUCTION OF ROADS. DIVIDED RESPONSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
PENDER'S GROVE ESTATE. CONSTRUCTION OF ROADS. DIIDED RESPONSIBILITY. A deputation representing the North cote Town Council waited on the Minis ter for Lands (Mr. Lawson) on Tuesday, in reference to a long-standing difference of opinion as to the responsibility for the construction of roads in the Pender's Grove Closer Settlement Estate. Some time ago the Closer Settlement Board agreed. to pay £4,000 to the Northcote Council for the construction of roads, drains, and other works. Of this amount £2,900 has been spent, and £1,100 is available. But it has been found that the work will cost more than £4,000, and the body responsible for the balance has to be fixed. According to the Closer Settlement Board, the council agreed to complete the work for £4,000. This the council denies, and asserts that the £4, 000 was intended to cover only part of the work. It is disinclined to make up the difference out of its own funds. The Minister was asked if he could suggesta settlement. Mr. Lawson st...
To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
To the Editor. Sir,--Being a ratepayer in the west ward and one who has attended the. three indignation meetings held by the N.T.E. League, I would like to ask "West Warder'.' if we are not all want ing something better than what we have at present? As for men putting their money into this phantom tramway I think that most of those interested are so whole-hearted about it that if there was a company formed they would all take some shares, I quite. agree with "West Warder" that the lists may con tain, a good many names who are not ratepayers. That is where the can vassers made the mistake, Hoping that it is not long before the tram is an ac complished fact-Yours, &c., ANOTIIER WEST WARDnEI,
FIRE AT NORTHCOTE FACTORY [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
FIRE AT NURTHCUOTE FACTORY At 10. minutes to 12 o'clock on. Satur day night a fire broke out at the boot factory of Clayden Bros. and McIntyre, situated at the rear 319 High street, Northcote, The fire, which was first noticed by Constable Gorey, seemed to originate under the floor, along which it quickly spread. The Northcote fire bri gade was soon on the scene, and quickly extinguished the flames, but not before considerable damage was d(one to the centre portion of the building antl con tents, consisting of leather and boots in various,stages of manufacture. The fixtures, machinery, and stock were in sured in the New Zealand Co. for £665, and the building, which is a structure of galvanised iron, in the same company for £120.
To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
To the Editor. Sir,-Being one who has always taken a keen interest in the welfare of the Northcote Football Club, both as junior and senior team, I attended the meeting on Wednesday evening to hear what arguments would be used to put the club on a better footing than it holds at present. To my mind the only way the club can be put on a proper basis is for a public meeting of the residents of the town to be called, with the object of making a fresh start and stopping all the friction that now exists. The out come of this, in all probability, would be the club would return to the North cote park, where the club was so suc cessful as a junior team. I am sure that until this step is taken the club will be denied the support which they should receive from a population of over 20,000. Northcote will soon he declared a city, and let us tackle the problem of having a football club worthy the name. Trust ing that others will take this matter up).-Yours, &c,, WELL-WISHER.
SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
0SME 8ALUTATION8, T'lhe prostration and the saluarn, sal. utations that many (Orientals use aro only more pronouinced forms of the bow. So there is a connection between the embrace, so conloll in civilised countries, and the greetin ' oif a morn ber of the Koiari tribe of lBritish New Guinea, who, in. saluting a missionary, placed one arm bhou this neck aiid stroked him under the chin, Among the Masai and the Ukerewo it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintanco or a stranger by spittiig at him, Almost as strange is the ces torn ascribed to the Tibetans of puttin, out tie tongue by way of salutation. Rubbing' noses is quite common; the, Burmese and many tribes of Esliilos, Laplandors, and Malays do so, Stranger than any of these customs is the weeping salutation that has boon observed anmong Contral South Anmer ican Indians, This form of greeoting occurs too in the Andaman Islands, New Zealand, and Polynesia.

IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
IF WE KNEW, Could we but draw back the curtains That surround each other's lives, See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it better, Purer than we judge we should We should love each other better, It we only understood, Could we Judge all deeds by motives, See the good and bad within, Often we should love the sinner, All the while we loathe the sin, Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity, it we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seem, I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hinder? Would we pity where we blame? Ah! we judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the goldep grains of good; Oh! we'd love each other better, If we on...
WINTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
WINTRY. --- - +- ----- Oh, England is a mournful place, Dr.rk are the days of dull December, When last I saw the sun's red face I'r sure I cannot now remember. I miss the blue-gums sternly tall, The moonlit plains, and inter alia I miss old friends, but most of all I :liss the sunshine of Australia. Aloft the storm-gods howl with glee, That having gathered all together The gamut of inclemency They serve it up to us as "weather!' Bleak is my daily portion here, And by some strange climatic blunder In quite another hemisphere The sun is shining 'way down under. The air is supercharged with grief, While moisture drips from slate and shingle; And though it gives me small relief My tears with Nature's often mingle. Wild is the wind that whips the tree And breaks the leafless limbs asunder, One radiant thought still.comforts me, The sun is shining 'way down under. With mist and snow and sleet and hail Across the landscape daily streaking, And be it blizzard, blast or gale, The heavens sim...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914
To the Editor, Sir,-I have read with interest your various correspondents, and have lis tened to various speakers at the so-called indignation meetings on this subject. It is amazing how the leaders of this movement are trying to make the rate payers of Northcote believe that they have been very shamefully treated by the councillors of the central and west wards who have voted against this scheme, but I dare to say that if a vote were taken to-morrow the attitude of these councillors would be upheld, not only by the ratepayers of Northcote in general, but by the ratepayers of the west and central wards. " West Warder" is only one'of many who I know personally, signed the petition arranged by the League in favour of this tramway, but who are not in favour of it. Again the resolutions carried at the indignation meetings have not been as unanimous in feeling as the vote would show. I know many ratepayers who were present at the meeting but did not vote. But supposing the west and centr...
