State School Dangers. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 21 May 1914
State School Dangers. Mr R. W. Armitage, district in spector, in'ail address at Tallan gatta, spoke very strongly against the practice, still prevalent in some schools, of allowing children to drink from vessels common to all ; of the " roller-towel," on which all and sundry dried hands and faces' after washing ; of the school slates, on which too many children worked; and, finally, of the absence from many schools of a simply-constructed incinerator, in which litter and luncheon papers might be safely and speedily destroyed. The com mon driuking vessel was, h'e said, undeniably as prolific a source of disease as the " roller towel" and a menace to the health of the child ren. Mr Tate's oft-quoted phrase, " The flora and fauna of the school slate," should at least have ridiculed I • that genii-laden ganger out of exist1 euce years ago. ~

Fancy Dress football Match. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 21 May 1914
Fancy Dress football. Match. The proposal to hold a fancy dress football match in aid of Myttleford Club was warmly taken up. and considering all the circumstances arid the short notice, the turn-out on Saturday last was a creditable j one and created no end of amuse ment. An early start was made with the blowing-up of the mam moth ball kindly loaned by the Dun lop Rubber Co., through Mr W. Beach, of Mr J. Mean's Buffalo Cycle Depot. This was a more difficult task than some anticipated, and after motor pumps/ bicycle pumps and other devices were tried it had to be taken to Mr C. Mur ray's blacksmith's shop, where the bellows was successfully utilised. The monster sphere was then car ried to Mr M'Lean's establishment, where it was the wonder of all ob servers. Shortly after 2 p.m., the ball was hoisted on to Crawford and Co's inail van, and driven by Mr W. Radcliffe, with Masters Tom M'Donald and Eric Milne in cos tume and manipulating the drum, paraded the streets. The coach bore th...

A Fire Brigade. To the Editor. Sir,—The " Dark Town Fire Brigade," or whatever it was sup posed to be, in the procession on Saturday should bring home forcibly to the business people in particular and residents generally what a boon a real Fire Brigade would be'in Myrtlefordv '.' Save Insurance," as was set out on1 the " reel,." is one aspect in which the matter might be considered, but another and much more serious one is the loss to pro perty, . .and perhaps of .life, that might be averted had -.we such an institution. Myrtleford has been remarkably free trom fires, but that is not' to say that it will always "oe so. I am sure we have anv num ber of young men who wouui volun teer their services in. the working of a brigade, and the discipline neces sary would improve .them in many \vays, besides filling up their spare time at night. Perhaps the Young Men's Club might deal with this : subject at one of their debates, and some means may be suggestedwhich will lead ' to the formation...

A Slight Mistake. Slie was . young and rather nervous, and when the precious baby was ill, she sent for the doctor hastily. When the servant told her he was down stairs, she carried the baby into the drawing-room and interviewed a sol emn young man, to whom she related various interesting details of the child's ailments! He looked worried and finally exclaimed. "I don't know much about such things, madam, being unmarried. Wouldn't it be better to consult a doc tor?" "But, aren't you the doctor?" "No, madam, merely the piano tuner!"
