Unfortunately, I the booking cleric had only a limited nunnber of tickets for that journey at his disposal. "Eventually lie got out of. his dilii culty by dividing the pieces of paste board and issuing children's tickets to the party, at the same time explaining to me how matters stood. " "They've -paid the full fare, of course,' he remarked, 'so you must see 'em through.'

JIISTlCi: TO At.t,. Published every Sattinlny Morning. SATURDAY, A PHI I, I. The records of the Northcote Police I Court for the past twelve months show I tlmt 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 t > entitle it to he ranked as a city, the record of eight inebriates for twelve months is a satisfactory testimony to the character of the community.

CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914

CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. How much is expected ot little chil dren in the way ot politeness when ttoiio is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry tliom on many an er rand for you 'and. never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, tor it is so human in nil of us to want approbation. Think ot your little ones oftener, mothers. You nre their till'; they turn to you for their wants. And nre often disappointed. Some children's souls and hearts are starv ed for want of kindness. Try what n little bribe will do instead- of pun ishment; a slice ot cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A very small piece of money will make tho heart ot many a child joyful for a long time. Try to study their natures more. All -chil dren cannot be managed alike any more than grown persons. And tho present of a pet puppy or a bird— will make a good child often, when punishment fails. Love the little ones more, they have their...

NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914

NORTHCOTE THEATRE. Booming business has prevailed at the theatre during the past week. 4 The Stolen Child" was the chief attraction on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and created a profound sensation. 4 'The Perils of the White Lights," a Kalem story of stageland, "Heart-broken Shep," a pathetic Vitagraph drama, and a laughable Keystone comedy, "The Clutches of the Gang," with numerous other interesting subjects, will be pre sented for the last time this afternoon at matinee and to-night. On Monday next, April 6th, Thomas Hardy's famous masterpiece, "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," will be presented for three nights only. The tragedy of "Tess" has moved the sympathy and tears of two generations of the English speaking race, and in the talented act ress, Mrs. Fiske, we see "Teas" live again, and follow her career with heart throbbing interest* It is one of those pictures that make a direct appeal to the heart, and once seen never forgotten.

Northcote and Preston Football Club. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914

Northcote and Preston Football Club. To tho Editor. Sir,—Adverting to "Well-Wisher's" reply I must apologise for taxing him 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 end of the tow,n. I dealt with their progress the last few years they were there, and did •—j go back to the remote ages, as he_ha"T .y»ie. A little friction existed, accoru..-.7j- v" him, between the N.F.C. and the Parks Committee. There was a great deal. The'club had one representative on that body, who was always in a min ority, and every action taken was to the detriment of the football club. The cricket club bad their own paid mem bers on the gates and elsewhere about the ground during the matches, whereas at present the gatemen refund their payments. His enthusiasm appears to me to be to shift the club to the park in the interest of the cricket ...
