PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914

PROTECTING< THE ^EYESIGHT. One of the-greatest- prejudices with which electric lighting has had to contend is the assertion that it is in jurious to the eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of the tungsten lamp are harmful. ■ The mere sound of the- word "ultra-violet" seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to some people, who, perhaps, conjure up visions of mysterious mal adies analogo s to those which, at tacked the early experimenters; with, the X-rays. All this alarm is, fortun ately, unfounded, for the emission, of ultra-violet rays by. some of the latest types of metal filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a source of illumination. The pow erful1 new lamps, however, can be in jurious to the eyesight, in the same way as any other illuminant/'by caus ing strain owing to glare. More than ever nowadays the science and art of illumination require to be carefully observed. In the days of the candle and the early gas burne...

Full Up. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914

. Full Up. The railway carnage .was crowded, but a very fat old gentleman who sat by the window calmly ignored the ominous looks of the passengers for taking up so. much room. A boy selling buns poked his head in at the-window, and inquired: "Buns, sir?" The old gentleman was slightly deaf and, not noticing the buns, thought the boy wanted a seat in the already packed carriage, so he remarked: "Full .up, my boy. No more room inside." A roar of laughter followed his re ply, and the old gentleman innocently. - wondered at the cause of their mer-, riment. ■ . . - "I'm trying to get back to me poor.. old mother," whined the tramp.

MARY'S ANIMAL SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914

MARY'S ANIMAL SHOW Mary had a little lamb— 'Twas Persian—on- her coat; She also had a mink or two ' About her dainty throat; A bird of paradise, a tern, And ermine made the hat That perched at jaunty angle On her coiffure, largely "rat." Her tiny boots were sable topped, Her gloves we're muskrat, too, Her muff had heads ad tails of half The "critters" in the Zoo, And when she walked abroad, I ween, She feared no wintry wind; At keeping warm, 'twas plain to see, She had all Nature "skinned." The latest quaint epitaph comes from America, where the original may be seen in the graveyard at Grafton, j Ohio. The man buried there was once an actor and that only makes the epitaph seem queerer— Here lies the body of William Pease, j Who was carried away by a dread disease. Here lies his pod Under the sod, .» But the Pease are shelled out And have gone up to God. —N.Z.

Football. OVENS ASSOCIATION. WhoROUI<Y V. MvrTIvEFORD. The opening of the season for premiership of the Ovens Associa tion was played at Whorouly on Saturday, and resulted in an easy win for Whorouly.

Whorouly have the mak ings of a fine team, iucluded in which on Saturday were the ' M'Namara brothers, who played for Gapsted last season, and George M'Guffie, formerly of Springhurst. The game on Saturday was an un . interesting one to watch, the play not being of very high order, which was scarcely to be expected so early in the season. Martin Seymour wias elected captain of Myrtleford team, with J. Clancy as vice-cap tain, and Arthur Wells led the Whorouly team.

Wandering Child. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914

Wandering Child. Eric Miller, aged 4 years, a sturdy little boy, wandered away from his home in Richmond, Melb., to see the shops, and somehow he reached Smith street, Fitzro-y, without any body realising that he was alone. He threaded the crowd on the foot path, sucking one of his fingers, un til he espied a lolly shop on the opposite side. He tried to crosF to the shop, but when he was dotting over the road, heedless of d.nger, a jinker knocked him down. The child rolled under the wheel, and the driver just stopped the horse as the wheel was about to pass over the boy's body. A crowd collected, and Eric began to cry. A police man went to his aid, and as no one claimed him the constable lifted him in his arms, and the jinker car ried them both to the Children's Hospital. The boy was covered with dust and mud, but the doctor could only find a small bruise, where the wheel had pressed against his body. The nurses then took charge of him until his parents were found. He had no cares, ...

Mining Restrictions. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914

Mining Restrictions. A paragraph in our mining column, to the effect that ^lmost every river and creek in t]j.e State is ' to be exempted from occupation for mining purposes, would lead one to the belief that some " Age-"awed crank has broken in the Mines Department, nnd taken upon him self to stop all mining. It is,' clifli cult to read any othqr meauing into_ I the aunouucement. If that is really the meaning of the proclamation, the,person responsible for it should be placed under proper care and control'. Mr Geo. Carnsew, late of the local post office, has passed the clerical examination which qualifies him for a telegraphist, with the right of rising to Postmaster in any State of the Commonwealth. Mr Carnsew was fourth on the list of' passes, and considering his- youth (he is-in his 17:h year) this result is very creditable.

Honoring Citizens. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914

Honoring" Citizens. To the Editor. fcsir,—When reading of the presentations recently made in Myrtleford to departing residents, it struck me that it would be a much better idea to do something for those who remain with us, and whose assistance is always' at hand to send along our town. There are several such here, and it seeais to me that unless they take their departure I from amongst us they are passed over. However, tjiis presentation business is getting a bit " over the odds," and these functions are taking place so indiscrimin ately that there is very little honor at tached to being the recipients. As I said before, honor those who remain with us; if | | in no other way, give them your support I and encouragement, and lend a helping haud to keep our people here. -Yours, etc, Admirkr of Pionkkrs.

TtHftWTlPI Labor Members and Miners. At! the fioal sitting of the annual conference of the Federated Mining Employes' Association, Mr G. M'Leod, MX.A. (W.A.) men tioned that none of the Labor mem bers of the Federal and State Parlia ments had seen fit to attend the con ference during the eight days it had' been in session. He had expected to see members of both the Federal and Victorian Parliaments in at tendance, but they had completely ignored its existence. Labor mem bers appeared to. find it easy to forget that they owed their positions largely to the miners' vote and that it was due to this large section of their constituents that the members should make some acknowledgement of the fact, and should endeavor to learn how the dangers attendant on mining, might be minimised. He' trusted that by the time .they again met they would have placed the association in such a strong position that Labor mem bers would find it politic to attend. The Labor senators for Western Australia owed ...
