CHEERFUL EVER! [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
CHEERFUL EVERI It's good we can say, with a sigh and a smile: "Times will be better after awhile! The light will stream through the clouds o'erhead, And flowers will bloom 'where th, thorns were red!" What of the sigh, if we say with a emile: "Times will 'be better after awhile?" It's a long, long way to the light of day; But winter gives over a promise of 'May, And ever we dream, in the darkest night: "The joy will come with the morning light!" Even in our sorrow we say with a smile: "Times will the better after awhile!" "Times will be better?" In Joy and woe Is it not sweeter to sing them so? Sweeter to dream, when the dark's o'er the blue, The eyes of the angels are looking at you? Away with the sigh, then, and sweet be the smile, "Times will be better after awhile!"

CHARMS OF THE CAT POPULAR PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914
CHARMS OF THE CAT POPULAR PETS. (By a Cat Lover). " "The best way to keep a cat is to lot it keep itself," seems to be the general rule among most owners of that popu lar pet. This, no doubt, may be all very well for the nondescript "tabbies" and "blacks" which inhabit the majo rity of hotmes, but It is a most dlsas trous treatment for all the beautiful highly bred creatures who are gradu ally ousting the common cat from arts trheratic houses. Once one has felt the artistic delight of owning a lovely blue, smoke, white, or other Persian, it is .lmost impossible to be satisfied again with the ordinary short-haired mon grol, There Is a general Impression that all lire-bred cats are extremely delicate. T'lls wrong idea is due to the fact that so many people are entirely ignorant as to the proper methods of feeding and keeping eats generally. They either let them run wild and feed them trregu larly (If at all), or go to the other ex treme and coddle them as if they were cis tender as ht...

OBITUARY. Quite a gloom was cast over Thomas- town, when, on Tuesday last, the some what startling news was passed around that Robert C. Bower had been cut down in the prime of life and fulness of his powers. The greatest sympathy has been expressed on all sides for the lady who for many years has been to him a true helpmeet and his devoted helper in all church and Sunday school work. On Thursday that sympathy and appreciation found practical expression in the numbers that gathered from near and far to honor his memory and to show their appreciation of his worth and work. The remains were carried from the house where he died to the church he served so faithfully and well, and then to the cemetery, of which he was a trustee and the honored secretary. The service in the church was conducted by the Rev. E. O. Knee, who was assis- ted by the Revs. E. Youngman and B. L. Semmens.

Preston P.L.C. Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 April 1914
Preston P.L.CO. Bazaar. The clerk of the weather was in his best mood for the concluding day of the fair, and as a result business was brisk. The Trades Hall Band enlivened the proceedings at night, whilst inside an attractive programme was also ren dered on both Friday and Saturday evenings. The sawing and nail driving competitions for the ladies attracted numerous entries and was entered into with spirit. Most of the ladies engaged found it much harder to saw through a 4 x 4 piece of jarrah than to mend hubby's clothes or cook his dinner. However, the winner, MIrs A. Campbell, proved rather an adopt in the use of the saw, and the runners-up, Mesdames Donovan and Jones, showed that they had some experience also. Some of the prize-winners were so little enamoured of their chances of success that they did not wait-for results, and, as a con sequence, a large wicker chair, won by Mr. J.*Walker, and a pair of hanging ferns won by E. McLeish, are at the residence of Mr. J. H, Jones, sec...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 April 1914
The records of the Northcote Police Court for the past twelve months show that during that period only 25 persons were convicted of drunkenness, and of this number only eight were local resi dents, the others being importations from other parts. Considering the population of Northcote is now such as to entitle it to he ranked as at city, the record of eight inebriates for twelve months is a satisfactory testimony to the character of the community. The pavilion at the Northcote Bowling green was broken into on Tuesday night and about 10s worth of property stolen, including a few shillings from the billiard room cash box. An entrance was effected by forcing open the win dow with a jemmy. The doors of the refreshment room and cupboard were also forced open in a similar manner.
