Northcote and Preston Football Club. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 April 1914
Northoote and Preston Football Club, To the Editor. Sir,-Adverting to "Well-Wisher's" reply I must apologise for taxing himn with not having the knowledge of the position of the club when playing in the Northcote park, as he has disseminated a great amount of information showing how successful the club had been when playing at the south and of the town, v dealt with their progress the last few years they were there, and did not go back to the remote ages, as he has done. A little friction existed, according to him between the N.F.C. and the Parks Committee. There was a great deal. The club had one represeitative on that body, who vas always in minm ority, and every action taken was to the detriment of the football club. 'l'h1e cricket club had their own l)aid mem hers on the gates and elsewhere about the ground during the matches, whereas at present the gatemen refund their payments, IHis enthusiasm appears to me to be to shift the club to the park in the interest of the cricket com...

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE, Manty devices have coime under uo. lice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in the wheat or hay' iiehld. Buildling the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice will climb up the blocks up on which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with line whie netting, will also 'be found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. I~t the iron into the ground to a depth of oftr inches, and place it in a slant. itg position, pointing outwards from the siack, all around it; taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will be fotund impossible for mice to oenter a stack titus protected.
