Eccentric Judges. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Eccentric Judges. | Mr. Ure has had some eccentric predecessors on the Scottish Bench. The more eccentric of all was Lord Eskgrove. Condemning a tailor to death for murdering a soldier, Lord j Eskgrove remarked: I "Not only did you murder him, 1 whereby he was bereaved of life; but you did thrust, or push, or pierce, or project, or propel the lethal wea pon through his regimental breeches, which were His Majesty's." Sentencing two criminals for house breaking with violence, after detail ing the way they attacked the per sons of the house, Eskgrove went on: "All this you did, God preserve us! Just as they were sitting down to din ner!"
The Deceitful Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
The Deceitful Wife. Mr. Ralph Nevill, the late Lady Dorothy Neviirs son, who lias j tst -published a new hook, says that this iB the golden age of the fad, and he tells an amusing story at the expense of one. of his faddist acquaintances. When at luncheon with this friend, Mr. Nevill noticed that he touched no meat, but ate only certain strange vegetarian cush°s that had evidently been specially prepared for his con sumption. Afterwards Mr. Nevill ask ed his friend's wife if this new diet agreed with her husband. " "It didn't at first," she replied. "But it does now!" "From his looks he certainly seems to thrive on it," Mr. Nevill remarked. "He never looked more robust in_Jiia "I take care of that," was the lady's reply, "though I hape he won't find out.". ' - She then confessed that when sne found that the vegetarian diet did not agree with her husband she gave or ders that each of the vegetarian dishes prepared for him was to be full of the strongest meat juice. The husband, under...
Imagination. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Imagination. The doctor was baffled and the case seemed almost hopeless, and after many different prescriptions the pa tient still said that his health was not improving. The complaint was not of a serious character, and after much thought a happy idea seized - the doc tor. He would try his patient's pow ers of imagination, and approached • him in this manner. '/Now, my friend, when I call upon you again will you say 'I imagine I am a little better to-day,' when I in quire after your health?" The patient replied in the affirma tive. The doctor called in a day or two and asked the patient as to his con dition. He replied, "I imagine I am a little better to-day, sir." "That's right," said the doctor. "Now the next time I call, will you say 'I imagine I am a great deal better than I was the last time you called,' which, accordingly, the patient did.
Falsely Accused. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Falsely Accused. A benevolent old gentleman was walking in the park when the loud sobs of a little girl arrested him. "What is the matter, my child?" he asked. "Boo, hoo, hoo! I've lost my penny!" cried the little girl. The benevolent old gentleman drew a penny from his pocket, and, extend ing it, he said with a beatific smile: "Here's your penny, my dear child. And now stop crying." The little girl, instead of thanking the benevolent old gentleman grate fully, stamped her foot and said with scornfully flashing eyes: "Oh, you wicked old man, you had my penny all the time!"
She Knew. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
She Knew. It was young Mrs. Robinson's first dinner-party, and she was suffering all the usual terrors of the inexperi enced hostess. However, the cook rose to the occa sion splendidly, and, so far as the dinner itself was concerned, Mrs. Rob inson was delighted. The only fly in the ointment was Jane. Jane was the new parlor-maid; she was slow, clumsy, and her wait ing was bad. But, in addition to these faults, she insisted on keeping her mouth wide open. This so got on Mrs. Robinson's nerves that at last she exclaimed: "Jane, your mouth is wide open!" Jane withdrew her gaze from the ceiling and said, looking down with a cheery smile: "I know it is, ma'am; I opened it myself!'"

Less Meat. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Less Meat. The Sydney butchers are some what disturbed since the receut strike in connection with their trade in that city, has revealed the fact -that a number of their customers' can do with much less meat th an they have been in the habit of con suming, and, even now the trouble is over, purchase much less in the' way of chops, steaks and joints than formerly. If the people of Sydney can do this sort of thing with the winter coming on, the ad vent of the hot weather again is likely to see a further reduction in the amount of carnivorous diet con sumed. The people of other Aus tralian centres of population will not be slow to take ajhint from those of the N.S.W. capital, and a sensa tional rise in the price of meat may likely enough be followed by a similar fall in the number of con sumers of the same—at any rate in much smaller quantities than here tofore. The Northern Suburbs Cycling Club, Sydney, has put up a record for a 100 miles relay race by teams of 10. The thne was 4h 5m ...

Literary Women. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Literary Women. The history of no literary family is so remarkable as that of the three sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte They lived in a,secluded hamlet in the north of England, and their first volume fell dead from the press, making a gap of over ^70 in their slender income. It was a volume of poems supposed to be the production of three brothers, Cur rer (Charlotte), Ellis (Emily) and Action (Anne) Bell. Charlotte af terwards achieved popularity as the author- of 41 The Professor," " Jane Eyre,'-' etc. When she called upon her publishers they discovered that Currer Bell,- instead of being a man, was a ... diminutive and demure country girl, clad in rural simplic ity. They would not believe that she was the author of such keen studies of social life and character until she presented their business correspondence as a proof. Emily, who wrote '' Wuthering Heights," though timid as a fawn in society, was a woman of rare nerve. On one occasion she was bitten by a dog supposed ...
Right of Newspapers to Public News. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Right of Newspapers to Public News. j . ,;A decision given by the Court of Common Pleas at Columbus, Ohio, regarding the right of newspapers to .news of a public nature seems likely to have 'considerable effect, and incidentally shows in what esti mation the Press is held in the: United States. The court has de cided'that no public official has any right to withhold news of a public nature, and that a newspaper has such a property right in such news ,as to entitle it to an: injunction;, re straining an official from withhold ing information of this character. The case arose out of the refusal of a country auditor to permit the re presentatives of newspapers from attending and reporting meetings of the commissioners. One of the newspapers in question brought a -suit;:,against the auditor, with the result that it won its case. The ^decision establishes a precedent,' and it is stated that other cases will be brought on the strength of it. The special canvass for the new State elecoral ...
Safety in Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
Safety in Mines. A deputation which waited on the Minister of Mines asked that eight check inspectors should be ap pointed, in order to ensure that the regulations for the proper ventila tion, sanitation, dust prevention and j general safety in mines were pro-' perly enforced. The Government inspectors, the speakers held, had such wide districts to caver that it was impossible for them to gh'e the j amount of attention to inspection that was required. Check inspec tors, who should be appointed from the ranks of the men, and who would be paid by the men them selves, would be of value in secur ing safe and healthy working. The proportion of serious accidents occurring in mines would be greatly reduced if the observance of the re gulations could be more rigorously exacted. The law was strong enough, but the administration of it was faulty. At present twenty-four hours' notice of inspection must be given, and this afforded the manage ment opportunity to conceal the actual conditions und...

For Chrome Chest Complaints, vVoous" Great Peppermint Cure, 1/6. Mr Norman Lambourn, of the 4\Chronicle", office, Corowa, and a t brother of Mrs P. Edwards, Myrtle ford, was operated on in Corowa Hospital on Easter Monday night I for appendicitis. The medical- opi / nion was that had the operation been been delayed for only, a few hours there would have been little hope of Mr I,ambourn\s recovery. However, he is now progressing favorably, though he will be inva lided for some weeks. It is a pe culiar coincidence that Mr Lam bourn and Mr Mart. Gavin (former ly of Ovens Vale), who was recent-, ly operated on for the same com plaint, were fellow boarders in Co rowa.

WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts because they think it can only be done with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will gradua...
MR. FRUITGROWER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
MR. FRUITGROWER. Rain, hail, sunshine, blow or snow,, the middleman never worries. He will" "make it up" whichever way it goes. One of the main essentials to suc cess is loyalty to your co-operative society. Do not split up your consign ments and give agents an opportunity of operating against you with your own ammunition. You must be a mighty strong man, Mr. Fruitgrower, to carry your own and other people's burdens the way you do. Don't you feel sometimes that you' would like to drop some of it; that you would like to play a little and' work less? If the old apple tree could speak it would surely protest against giving half its income to some fellow in Mel bourne who never produced anything, but a fat bank pass book.

Football Notes. ' By •' Oritic." Great preparations are being made for the fancy dress football match. If it is as good as one " Critic" saw some time ago it will be very interesting. Strict watch should , be-kept at. the en trances to collect all the sixpences. Could not: Myrtleford have a small shel ter erected for players to change in ? This would be a great improvement be it ever so i small. T. Patton says he will not don the colors this year ; his place will be hard to fill. " Granny " Lewis will also be missed., , The blue and whites are very shaky this season. There are grave' doubts as 'to whether they can get a' team. They will be without the services of Kneebones (2), Otfcreys (4), E. Cousins and A. Elmer. As far as " Critic can learn, the red, white and blacks will be about the same as lkst year. J
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English, dairying authority says: The elimination of the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys tematically furnish reliable informa tion which, enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course,, who may be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk producers need to study this> question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say,. 800 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £6 on the latter,...
