BRIGHT. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

E& R J C3b H T ■' From otir Correspondent. Tuesday. Matters in connection with the North Riding election, whi.ch even' Uiates on Friday, are progressing well, and both Mr Rollason,..the local candidate, and Mr Green are active ip' enlisting the support of the .ratepayers. The latter have been circularised by Mr Rollason, i and ,a steady canvas has 'been made by Mr Green, so there is no excuse for electors not making use of their vote on Friday. The council have arrangements completed, and poll ing; will take' place between the hou.rs^f 8a.m. and 7 p.m. at Bright, Porepunkah, Tawouga and Wood aja. (-Ovens).' At the two former places Mr Rollason is particularly -well known and highly respected, and it is anticipated that the votes cf these towns will put the issue be yond doubt. In-all probability the electors of Ovens Vale will also pre fer a representative from this end, while no doubt Tawonga will strongly support their local choice. It seems rather a pity that a Friday was...

Husband and Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

Husband and Wife. " Pick out a good solid man and take him if lie has a good heart . Never mind if he is as homely as a mud fence and without a dollar in his pocket," said Mrs George A. C. Barnett, of East Onange, New York,, who has recently celebrated with her husband, the golden wedd ing (the " Express" says). " In all that time," said Mr Barnett, my wife and I never had'a cross word. The reason, I think, is that we agreed at the very beginning ■ that there would be no politics in our married life, and T don't need to'tell yon that by that I mean there would be no ■ bossing.' Men forget that a woman has a lonely heart, aud' they stay at., their clubs or else where and forget there is someone waiting at home. My advice to a young man is to go home to his wife. She is the best company in the world. Don't leave her alone . in the little flat. When love flies out of the window, you know, the devil comes in at the door. If. you love, at the beginning, it will last, When I proposed to m...

Gospel of Simple Life. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

Gospel of Simple Life. Mr T. P. O'Connor, M P., says in a recent issue of an English paper I am strongly of opinion that the next great movement in the world of spiritual and moral re form will be the gospel of the simple life. We seem in some respects to have reached the stage in our habits and morals which was reached by Rome before the final decadence that led to the destruction of the mighty Empire which she had cre ated all over the then known j world. Luxury has increased to a J gigantic extent; luxury has brought in its train looseness of morals and also some vulgarity of manners ; and every day it is becoming nnre difficult for people of ordinary means to keep up with the expen sive life now getting so common," bince 1st July the exports of Victorian butter have totalled? 10,252 tons, of which 9668 tons have been forwarded to the United ' Kingdom, 95 tons to South Africa and 489 tons to Eastern and other ports. The value of the total ex* port is estimated .at ,£1,127,748. Fi...

Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

Ovens ¥aie. (From Our Correspondent.) Having entered a new year, I sincerely • wish my many readers every prosperity and happiness. Locals, the year 1913 had its set-backs.; Amongst other things the dreaded dredging industry ap parently created widespread uu* easiness. Nevertheless, it is safe to opine that with a wider range of thought.the not far distant future may prove accountable for a better state of things resulting. The source of all wealth is naturally the land ; therefore, it is consistent and logical advocacy to maintain that if the soil be ingeniously swept out of existence harmful effects will arise. Obviously, the'1 intention of those who formerly set out to acquire wealth per medium of the dredging industry was well founded ; yst the object achieved has, in a general sense, proved barren of anything approaching satisfactory achieve ment, consequently no reasonable exception should be taken to a legitimate check being .put upon a continuance of the evil. During. Christ...

Playing Safe. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

Playing Safe. A group of negroes were stand ing in front of a little grocery store ; in an American town, admiring the display of " wa term ily tins" lying on the platform. For a while they discussed the fine points of the different " milyuns," and finally the argument settled into whether or not one man could eat the biggest melon in the pile, which weighed about 251bs. While this discussion was going on, a long, lank darky joined them. " What yo'all disputin' about Vv he inquired. :/'2' " We's jest argifyin';" replied cne, " whether or not one man , could eat that there milyun all by hisself." ''Shucks!" boasted the new comer. " I could eat that milyun,: and it would'nt be a snack !" A white man, who had overheard'' the remarks, turned to the long, lank darkey. 11 Why, you fool nigger, 'he said, "You know you couldn't eat all that melon at one5 time! I'll"bet you you can't." " What yo' bet?" asked the darky. " I'll .tell you what Til do," pro posed the white man. "If you'll eat it...

Seen ill the Stars. OLD MOORE'S PROPHECY FOR 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

Seen ill the Stars. Old Moore's Prophecy for 1914. Just about this time of the year prophets issue their forecasts for the ensuing twelve months. Perhaps onie of the most remarkable of these modern seers is " Old Moore," who regularly issues a series of opinions; : and which this year are particularly \ gruesome. >We do not say that "Old Moore" , is;a prophet ; we do not say that it is possible to foretell what is going 1 to happen ; but we do say there are many extraordinary happenings which require more explanation than a mere expression of "nothing but mere coincidence." The "London Magazine" con siders that premonitions come under two well-defined heads :—(1.) Warnings at the moment the trag edy or occurrence is taking place. (2,) Warnings before--sometimes many years before ; sometimes a minute before—the event to come, predicting them to the minute, and so minutely describing them as to destroy the coincidence theory which at one time was used to scout such phenomena. There...
