MARRYING OF MURPHYS GRAZING RIGHTS AND- AFFEC TIONS. The. marrying-season, is coming on in Connaught—It lasts from ubout mid January until Lent — anil important questions have to be settled. They are questions of money mulnly (says- the Connaught correspondent of "The Daily Express'*) because Mary Murphy may be as beautiful as the Dark Rosaleen .herself, but if she has not £GQ or so by way of a dowry, or a farm with graz-. ing for about four cows, she Is not go ing to find a husband in Mayo.

FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914

FREAK TROUSERS I AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED.* Some of us (says "The Daily, Tele graph" of January. 7) remember Mr Walter Passmore's exultant exclama-^ tion In "The Earl and tho Girl"—"It* ain't the coat wot makes tho man; why, demme, it's the trousers." So, evi dently, think certain sartorial experts in America, when they suggest, as wo arc told, that fashion is about to pre scribe to the "nuts" on the other side, nether garments that shall be "slashed" or "slit," just as women's skirts aro, according to the prevailing vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up—as it were—endless pos sibilities, even to the average malo mind.. Wo seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more elaborately embroidered than they' are now In Dudcland. Also do there seem to loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bejewelled shoe-strings, and dainty garters—with* perhaps, a bit off airy frilling thrown In. For, once you open the floodgates of fashion at the trousers seams from t...

PENDER'S GROVE STREETS.   CR. HAYES REPORTS ON THE CONFERENCE.   NOT COMPLIMENTARY TO CLOSER SETTLEMENT BOARD.   Cr. Hayes on Monday evening re ported re conference with Ministers and Closer Settlement Board regarding Pender's Grove streets. The Minister, he said, took up rather a hostile attitude against the council. It had been repre sented in the Press that the council had been given money to spend all over the estate for street making. But they had only been granted £4000, and that was for streets west of Newcastle street. That was in 1907. All this had been expended except £1100, which they   could not spend owing to drainage diffi culties. The Minister wanted to know what the council was prepared to spend, but he (Cr. Hayes) told him they were not prepared, to spend anything. Cr. Plant.--Didn't the Board agree with the purchasers to make the streets. Cr. Hayes.-Yes; but the Board is in a hopeless state of muddle. They don't k...

PUNCH PARS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 March 1914

PUNCH PARS. Lord Dudley, one time Governor General of the Commonwealth, had in his younger days the unpleasant experi ence of being "run in by the police" in London. He, with Benson, who was well-known in Australia as the Jubilee Plunger, and other rapid "sports," were in the Field Club in London, when early one morning a raid was made, and all persons found there were arrested, and had to face the musie. Sir Charles Kussell, afterwards Lord Chief Justice of England, was in the club the same evenisg; but, receiving a friendly tip as to the proposed visit of the police, he made himself scarce just before the psychological moment of the raid. Sir George Ileid does not leave us with out an admonition. In.fact, when we come to think it over we tind he has been admonishing us right throughout his visit. Me tells us on the eve of his departure that "we have been inclined to uttend to things on the roof of our greatness rather than the foundations." This means that, in the opinion of our H...

NORTHCOTE AND PRESTON SCOTTISH SOCIETY.

It may well be taken for granted that the hall .will hardly hold i he large' crowds who - will want to patronise these line concerts when the cooler weather comes in. The fount from which the committee draws the talent for their concerts seems like the widow's cruse, inexhaustible. There has been little or no repetition at*anv of the concerts, and always the standard has been kept up, a fact on which the society is to be highly commended. Amongst (he artists engaged was Miss Alice lleelev, whose rich and expressive contralto was heard to great advantage in the songs "There's a Land" and " Doon the Burn," and there was an enthusiastic recall after each.

CRICKET. N0RTHC0TI5 V. UNIVERSITY. Northcote commenced their last mutch of the season last Saturday against University, and, batting first, made a bad beginning.but Inter in the afternoon, thanks to the splendid partnership be tween Vernon and Bailey, made a fine recovery. Begg, Chesswas, Haley and Brown were out with only 11 runs on the board, and the whole of the wickets had been captured by Shugg for 0 runs. At this stage he was bowling well and troubled all the batsmen. Studley and Billings, by resolute batting, stemmed the tide of disaster for a while and took the score to 33, when Studley, who had made 10 quietly, was well caught at log by Shugg off Russell. Yeomans went cheaply, 6 for ;!7 being the miserable total at this stage. With Vernon in 63 appeared before Billings was bowled by Sliugg immediately after the adjourn ment. He took 75 minutes to make 1<1 runs, but it was an invaluable innings at a critical stage. Bailey joined Vernon, and the two added 107 runs ...
