Sir.—In 1885 I was district fores ter at Beechworth, and was in-, structed by the then Minister for Agriculture (the late Mr, J. IV Levien) to report on the St John's Wort weed at Bright, and suggest a scheme for its suppression. I found a good patch of it at Morse's Creek and on the Bright racecourse, and suggested having the area cleared and ploughed deeply, and sown with , barley or otner strong-growing crop to choke the weed, I heard no •.more about it. • Rabbits and stock carrying the seed from infested areas to other places are the chief offenders. They roll among the fallen seed and carry it in their fur,' and again roll and shake it off on. clean country. Sheep carry it in the wool. The other means of dis tribution is water, which carries the breed seeds along rivers, creeks and other watercourses. The seed is not a thistle-down, like stinkwort, and does not carry with the wind like s...

"Boxing" and "Prizefighting." [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914

" Boxing and " Prize fighting." I At the Presbyterian General As I sembly in Sydney, the committee on Religion and Public Morals in the course of their report had the following—" Our , attention was drawn to the . unparrelled increase of interest in prize \ fighting— euphemistically' called boxing, or athletics Against 'boxing' as an athletic exercise practised by ama teurs we have nothing to say, and we recognise that the 1 art of self defence ' is a useful and, possibly, necessary accomplishment. Our protest is against the encourage ment of the 4 prize fight,' a form of entertainment that appears to be as lucrative to its promoters as it is undoubtedly harmful in thousands of cases to those who witness it. On the best of authority we declare that • many of these contests are mere ex hibitions of sanguinary brutality."

Spider Lore. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 14 May 1914

Spider Lore. The spider, which in daily life is little noticed except for its cobweb, the presence of which in a house generally betokens neglect, has, however, an interesting story, being the'subject'of many a curious legend and quaint superstition. Although the servant often ruth lessly sweeps this uncared-for in truder off the wail when seen, yet a common proverb reminds us that yon wish to live and thrive,,. - Let the spider ruu alive, ^ ill-luck being supposed to quickly overtake those who kill or even so much-as injure it. The regard paid by many to the life of the spider is m alP probability due to the influ ence of an old legend which tells how, when Christ lay in the man ger at Bethlehem, the spider came and spun a beautiful web over the spat where He was, thus, preserving His life by screening'Him from all the dangers that surrounded Him. Stories of a similar character are j told about several notable persons i during time's iof! persecution-. j Thus there is a Hebrew trad...
