SCOTTS WANTED HERE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
SCOTTS WANTED HERE. . j The North and South Poles have both been discovered, but there are still lots of places the geographical world is simply aching to have defin ite facts about. Geographers were badly sold lately when an explorer knocked on the head the belief that the river BraJi maputra (a mighty river that flows along the north side of the Himalayas and joins the Ganges) possesses a waterfall compared with which Niag ara is a baiby. The lower part of the river is some, thousands of feet .lower than the up per reaches, and it has long been thought that the unexplored middle region included a mighty cataract. It doesn't. The geographical world is sorry, but glad to know. Arabia is . country "with vast pos sibilities for the ambitious explorer. Only the coast fringe is really known, even to the natives, who call the in terior "The Land of the Void." There are 600,000 square miles of it, and it may contain absolutely anything in the. way of riches, ruins, or—sand. Somebody is wa...
Wanted, a Progress Association! [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
Wanted, a Progress Associa tion ! Ill a recent issue we urged the necessity for the resuscitation of the Progress Association, but no move in the matter is up to the present apparent. Perhaps the following, taken from a report of a meeting of Beechworth Association, may im press on our business people the necessity of som.e organisation to keep an ,eye on our interests The President said Beechworth had lost all the Barwidgee trade on account of the bad roads which had absolutely stopped Barwidgee people from getting, to Beech-., worth. ■: ■■■■■■.•. •. ■ Mr Vandenberg said the Myrtleford mar kets had attracted all the Barwidgee trade.

Not Clear. • At a trial in an Australian court when the witness in the box was be ing subjected to..a merciless cross-ex amination, in answering one question the-witness nodded. .Whereupon the court stenographer, who was working at high speed to get it all and could not see the witness, at once demand ed: Answer that question," to which the; witness replied: "I did answer it; I nodded my head." ' ; The stenographer, without a mo ment's hesitation, retaliated with, "Well, I heard it rattle, but could1 not* .tell whether it was up and down or from side to side." A woman always calls it "feminine' intuition" .when she succeeds in mak ing a fairly good guess.
Sportings. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
Sportlngs A prosecution has been instituted, in England against the promoters of the "John Bull Derby Sweep." In the course of evidence it was stated that orders were given to the prin- s . ters for 11 million tickets, which, with the circulars, weighed 8 tons. ( -> The confidence of an owner in the : ability of hist horse is shown by the following :—Mr Tyler, the owner of Sunlo'ch, did' not see the Liverpool Grand National, as after leading his' horse on to the course he was unable to find any room on the stands, so dense wad the crowd. During the race he employed his time at the post office, where he wrote out wires to send home to his friends. The wording of the message was " Sun loch won easily,'! and having them, already written he handed them -in before his. ,horse had', passed the winning post. Though he could not see over the heads of the people, he could hear the shouts " Sunloch. wins," so he straightway handed in . the messages. Vanguard, the well-known, .steeplechaser...
CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. The ability to seize an opportunity is a valuable, nay indispensable, busi- -■ ness as.-et as the following incidents, go a long way to prove. An- aeronaut and bis son. met with an accident near Rouen some years ago; through the car of their balloon having broken away, father and son were thrown downwards, but the son had be^,n caught when falling in a book wbich pierced bis coat. • He was carried this way for some miles, ultimately coming to the ground in safety. His coat was pur chased by the makers and hung in their show windows, with a full de scription of how it saved the wear* er's life. And as a fitting reward for their enterprise their sales actually doubled. A Welsh miller lost a sovereign in a bin of flour, and after spending - many unavailing hours in search of it told a friend of his misfortune. "Perhaps it will turn up in one of the sacks," suggested the friend, whereupon the miller was seized with a brilliant idea. He advertised in the local papers...
SING A SONG OF MICROBES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
SING A SONG OF MICROBES. Sing a song of microbes, Dainty little things, Ears and eyes and horns and tails, Claws and fangs and stings. Microbes in the carpet, Microbes in the wall, Microbes in the vestibule, Microbes in the hall. Microbes on my money, Microbes in my hair, Microbes on my meat and bread, Microbes everywhere. Microbes in the butter, Microbes in the cheese, Microbes on the knives and forks, Microbes in the breeze. Microbes in the kitchen, Microbes in the bed, Microbes on the brush and comb, Microbes in my head, Microbes in the faucet, Microbes in the drains, Microbes in my shoes and boots, Microbes in my brains. Friends are little microbes, Enemies are big, Life among the microbes is— Nothing but "infra dig." Fussy little microbes, Billions at a birth, Make our flesh and blood and bones Keep us on the earth. —Toronto "Guardian." If Eve came back to the world to-day, After being away this many a year, She'd probably turn to Adam and say, "The styles haven't changed 'very...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
FROM ^.VARIOUS SOURCES There are three kinds of men who don't know anything about women. They are old men, young men, and middle-aged men —Brooklyn iiiagie. Never mind them, little skirt, Who your character would hurt. From the way you shrink and shrink, You're quite timid, I should think. —"Judge," New York. I want to warn meat-eaters against j a cunning conspiracy to convert them j into vegetarians. A man (whom I have since discovered to be a notori ous nut-eater) lured me into a strange restaurant yesterday morning, and set before me something that looked like a mutton cutlet. I cannot tell exactly what first aroused my sus picions, but suddenly approaching the cutlet from behind I tore off Its false frill, and discovered it to be some nuts and potatoes in disguise. Then I saw through the whole game at once. Some desperate band of vegetarians are sitting up at nights training bananas to look like pork sausages, and teach ing innocent little walnuts to go about masquerading as dev...
Tit for Tat. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
Tit for Tat. A well-known comedian lias an in exhaustible stock of good stories. One of the ibest concerns a visit to a Scot tish town. The prices liad been put up a little, and a man explained to a friend that he had gone to the theatre with his wife, intending to go to the pit, and had found that eighteenpence was being charged instead of a shil ling. . "Of course you didn't go in?" re marked the friend. "Oh, yes, I went in, but I paid them out for their greed. I sent my wife home, so they lost sixpence by it."
A WOOD THAT NEVER ROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914
A WOOD THAT, NEVER ROTS. Engineers have often, to deplore the rotting of railway sleepers, of piles, and of wood used to support galler ies, in the building of ships, etc. En gineers, chemists, physicists, .biolo gists, doctors, who, for the construc tion of diverse apparatus may require a wood possessing a .maximum resist ance to the causes of destruction, par ticularly humidity, are interested in this important question of the un putrescibility of wood. The ideal would be to find a wood of a charac ter susceptible of resisting putrefac tion naturally. Now it appears from recent researches that the wood of the mangrove tree may be considered as absolutely unputrescible. Numer ous sample of mangrove wood (Rhizo phora racemosa) sent from French Guinea were, in 1909, placed at Col longes (Cote d'Or) in a soaking pit in the depot of sleepers of the Paris Lyons-Mediterranean Railway Com pany. The samples were surrounded with all the elements susceptible of producing the decomposition an...
