AU REVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 March 1914
iHolliday, and 1i1 Sykes. AU IEVOIR, Prior to the adjournment of the court, the P.M., on behalf of the Bench, in timated that he understood that thai would be the last occasion of Mr. J. S, Whalley's attendance at court, on arc count of a'contemplated holiday trip tc the old country. He might say that, ol all the pr6fessions, journalism was the most wearing, and every pressmar should have the opportunity of holidays. As far as Mr. Whalley was concerned, he had attended that court regularly during at quarter of a century, and had come to be looked on almost as a pnrt of the court. The Bench desired to con, vey its very best wishes, and hoped for a safe return with renewed health and vigor, Mr. 1, Barrow, J.P., warmly endorsei the sentiments expressed by Dr. Cole, stating that during his long connection with the court, Mr. Whalley had heik the respect of Bench and Bar. , Mr, Croft, on behalf of the legal pro. fession, voiced appreciation of the many years' constant courtesips displaye...
SUCH IS "SUGGESTION." [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 March 1914
SUCH IS "SUGGESTION." By the method known as "sugges tion," It is possible (according to a medical writer) not only to perform the simple oxeperiment of waking one self at a given hour In the morning, but also to banish all minor 'physical ailments and even to correct faults in the character. Just as in 'the first instance the ex perimenter before going to sleep at night makes a mental request to him self 'that he shall awake at a certain time on the following morning, so in more important matters he suggests to himself a condition of health or a method of conduct. To take two instances. Supposing you suffer from insomnia, you focus your whole attention upon the repeti tion four times a day of a given formu" Ia. rihus you may say to yourself that. you trouble no more about the mat ter, merely repeating the statement at intervals. In two or three days at most the effect-according to the au thority-will 'be felt In sound slum. bers. Much the same process is adopted where it is desired...
To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 March 1914
To the Editor. i Sir,-With.your permission I would like to correct a few inaccurate state ments made by "Fair-Minded" in reply to my letter, He thinks I must be laboring under an hallucination when I express the opinion that the club would receive better support if they were to play their matches at Northcote park. In support of his argument he men tions that the club officials had all they could do to square the ledger the last couple of seasons the club played at the southern end of the town. He also makes an unwarranted attack on the cricket club stating that they always took a third of the gate receipts. Cer tainly there was a little friction be tween the Northcote F.C. and the Park Management Committee (on which the former had representation) but to drag the cricket club in and say that they always demanded their pound of flesh is not "fair-minded" to say the least of it. Speaking about squaring the ledger, it is common knowledge that last season N.F.C. committee had a hard tas...
MAN'S PRIDE IN HIS FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 March 1914
MAN'S PRIDE IN HIS rACE. The old human race is in love with its face; flan worships the cut of hiis mug. In the cave l:'apie's day, thi fErst worker in ciay Etched a loonii,-.-iaced l:an on his jug, On clay anl] oln ilaas and on e?!? phant oounes Their portraits they drewa.-and they baked them on pones. The poor Eskimo, buriedi deep in the Puts his totem pole up in the breezo, It's his horrible phih: done in wood, so it is, A frieze that 'wolu.i cause y'?i to freeze. Those faces up there they. would ,frighten a bear, And the pole that must tote 'cm's a totem for fair. The Assyrian "kinks," those proud purple old ginks, Flat-nosed and as ugly as gall, Their portraits they'd mix in the clay of the bricks And they'd -bake 'erm and make 'em a ,wall. It's a poor trait of character-would' n't you say 'To want your old portrait forced us that way?" Old. Queen Cleopatra, she still gazes at you Stretched out on an obelisk pile, The folks who iwere ace high, they all nailed a face high On sto...

Ford, atpersonal friend, with large journalistic experi- r ence, while the printing department will be looked after by our experienced and efficient staff. In the rush of get ting away personal farewells to the very many who have given us their friend ship during the past quarter of a cen tury are impossible, so we will have to content ourselves with an Au Revoir I through the columns of the "Leader."

A CORRECTION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 March 1914
A CORRECTION, To the gditor, Sir.-In your issue of 14th March, under "Northcote Electric Light Scheme" the following is reported: "Cr, Plant stated that the council paid Mr. Ashman 5 per cent, for supervision of the Council's Electric Lighting Scheme." This statement is not in accordance with my arrangement with the Northcote council, as I am only receiving hail' this amount for supervis ing the carrying out of the various contracts pertaining to the electrical scheme. I would not like your rate payers to remain under this misappre hension, and, in all due repect to Cr. Plant, I am surprised that he did not inquire as to the arrangements the coun cil had made with me before making this inaccurate statement, -Yours, &c., W, HI, ASIMAN.
