To tho Editor. 'Sit,—Allow uie to thank ' ISarobiu " for' his well-timed unci suitable letter re the Saturday half-holiday. As a resident of iltiother part of this district, I endorse -all he says, and hope his letter may have tho effect of waking up the business,people of Myrtleford to the way in which they are driving its trade away. Surely they can see the truth of what he says. Is it not more sensible to study their .own interests, as well as these 08 the residents of suk rounding' districts and the townspeople too, rather than the convenience of the few who wish to go in for sport? Besides, cricket and football matches, etc. could be played just as well on any day set apart for the half-holiday.

FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method of fattening all kinds of poultry is to keep them in' confinement for a short time before they are required for table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to be exercised in deciding the length ol time this confinement is to last, for if'overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose.flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once- this begins,, $o amount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty, again. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required. ' Many a mam is clothed with author ity which doesn't fit him. . ( The cypress is a symbol of .mourn ing. In Italy it is difficult to find a Churchyard,. which . does not contain cypress-trees. This-.tree is not easily 1 grown in Britain.
