TRAMWAY EXTENSION. PUBLIC MEETING AT PENDER'S GROVE HALL. AN ABRUPT ENDING. A meeting, convened by the Northern Tramway Extension League, was held in the Pender's Grove hall on Tuesday evening. There was an attendance of between fifty and sixty ratepayers, and the president , of the league (Ex.-Cr. Pearl) occupied the chair. The chairman, in opening, said the meeting had been called by the Northern Tramway Extension League to advocate the extension of the St. George's road tram through to Preston. The three representatives of the ward had been invited to attend, but two of them (Crs. Redmond and Hayes) had replied stating they would be unable to be present, owing to prior engagements. Cr. Mc Donell, however, was present and would be given an opportunity to speak. The proposed extension was one that vitally affected the whole town, and was worthy of the fullest discussion. Tramway extension was receiving earnest atten tion by many public bodies. Sir. Harvey moved— " That this meeting...

PARS FROM "PUNCH" [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 April 1914

PARS FrtOM "PUNCH " \V. A. Holman hns in many ways a remarkable resemblance to \V. M. Hughes. In part this comes from their close companionship and friendship when "Bill" Holman was a French polisher and "Bill" Hughes an umbrella-mender, or at some other queer calling. The two "Bills" saw each other in times of vicissitude, and must have many laughs together now over the strange trades they worked at before brains ami indus try won them power, culture, good in comes. The main resemblance is in view. It is the crafty, clever, subtle point of view. They seek and find strange arguments that no other public men would think of. They have remark ably similar mannerisms when speaking, modulate their voice in the same wnv, look like brothers, gesticulate freely with similar actions, and have great command of words. Holman is more genial than his brother Socialist He is one of the most charming public men in Australia, and his eloquence, directness and delightful manner and address marie him...

It has water nearly all round it, and whisky ovor •a large part of It. "The population is about four and a-lialf millions, including Mr. Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language of Us own, and if one can pronounce It coherently It is an infallible tost of sobriety. It possesses consider able mineral wtttiui, but very little of it finds its way out of the country. ; "Gold has at times 'been discovered; In certain districts, as" well as In the pockets of certain natives, but In both cases it has been found dlfllcult to work.

ODE (AND PAID) TO THE NORTH WIND. IN FOND REMEMBRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 April 1914

ODE (AND 1JAID) TO THE NOKTH WIND. IN FOND REMEMBRANCE. I am the wind that whips the tree, That flays the land and whips the sea, From arid areas I pass, The fiend insensate, Koreas! 1 banish all urbanity And sanity—true sanity. I clothe the countryside in brown. Dispel the smile, ami raise the frown, Anil cause profuse profanity, When 1 blow in to town. I am the harbinger of drought, Destroyer of each tender sprout; I scorch the crops uj>on the plain. And blast the promises of rain. I seize each opportunity To harass the community, My mission but to mar and maim, And no man ever dares to claim Immunity—immunity, When I begin my game. I sing with maniacal glee A ballad of inclemency. I am the washerwoman's woe, The barman's friend, the cyclist's foe; I treat without variety Society—Society, I fill each spotless home with dust, I fill each housewife with disgust, And fleeing their sobriety Some men go on the bust. My wings are laden with the grit From road and plain, from mound an...

WHEN WOMEN "POP THE . QUESTION." How the Fair Sex Helps Backward Wooers. More mnn Is often n peculiarly "lilato" mortal when it comes to such ft crucial test of courage as "popping tlio question." So much, Indeed, is this the enso that numbers of tlio fair Bex havo lmd to propose to back ward suitors, and tlicy didn't wait for Leap Year either. Few of them popped the question in so many words for. that would have been umnaldcnly, but they managed subtly and surely to lead the bashful swain into the toilB almost before ho was aware of It. Thus one diffident wooer who hesi tated to ask tlio fateful query was assisted. "Frank," said Ills loved one, "auntie says if she likes my lover she will give us a house." There was a short pause, and then she went on, slyly, "I think iny aunt likes you, Frank." Then, happily,' l'ranlc saw the drift of the remark, and; seizing the opportunity, won a wife and a house. • Similarly situated was another dam sel who, having been assiduously wooed for som...

WHEN IS A COW OLD? [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 April 1914

WHEN IS A COW OLD? Provided that a cow lias been nil exceptional milker in lier prime, she may be worth lceoplng long after her beat days 011 the chance that she may breed heifers like herself. Although there is 110 guarantee that a good cow will yiold good milk ing heifers, it is certain that a bad cow will not, so the good ones should bo kept as long as possible. The ulti mate loss of an old animal is nothing to the possible milk gain from a strain of good heifer calves. I11 an ordinary way a cow should bo sold at her ninth or tenth year. She is tlion passing her top yield in milk, and is still worth a payablo price for beef ■ if in good condition; but there are many exceptions to this rule, and ill health may knock off an animal at any ago. There is 110 reason to be Uevo that the calves produced lato in life will bo inferior, and there is no conclusive evidence that the milk of an old cow Is any poorer Lhnn that of a younger' one; while it a young bull la used the balance will be...

WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 April 1914

WASTE. By Win. North. A. great manufacturer of table mus tard once said that lie would not mind making. the public a present of all the mustard they could eat so long as ho was paid double for all they wasted. Sellers of garden seeds say much the same, and one could go on multiplying examples of the same sort of thing. Too good an example might be found in many a bird room, while the owner of a solitary cage bird is almost invariably wasteful. Some waste Is inevitable, so far sh the birds are concerned, though ac loual and total waste may ho saved by giving all the sweepings from tlio cage or aviary to the poultry, assum ing any are kept. Apart from that, however, a great deal • may bo done to keep down the seed bill, and the surprising thing Is that so few fan ciers give the matter a thought. Seed mixtures are the most fruit ful cause of waste and, save in a large aviary, their use is not to be re commended. Every, bird lias its likes and dislikes, and given a dish of Becd, it will...

WIVES WORTH WINNING. Well-Known Novelists on ideal Womanhood. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 April 1914

WIVES WORTH WINNING. Well-Known Novelists on Ideal Womanhood. Tastes, of course, differ, but men appear to want a wife who never ex isted except in romantic dreams. She must be a model of all virtues and possess no fallings. She must be "so pretty that we are always proud, and so good that we are never uneasy; a woman who wears well and looks her 'best in two-year-old gowns; who ap plies the adjective 'important' in re lation to our work, our food, and our desire for unfettered 'holidays; who laughs at our small jokes and pre serves a marble face when we are scored oil by others; with whom we have the massively comforting sensa tion that she will never recognise the plain, staring fact that we are not brave, not wise, not clever. The words quoted are those of that popular novelist, Mr. W. B. Maxwell, and "the astounding, incredible thing," he concludes, In hlB comments on the sort of woman a man likes, "Ib that, wanting all that, we sonetimes get it." A truer note, perhaps, Is struc...
