About Foxes. The country journal from which the following is extracted explains that it is a letter from a .. much re spected correspondent, but, owing to an oversight, which is greatly re gretted',, it found its way into print 'without the usual editorial prepara tion. This is V s it appeared :—" As for the foxes, if there is not some thing done to destroy them they will destroy all the farmer can rise.

Farmer's Sudden Death. ' 4> Daniel I,yneh, aged 70 years, was found dead in a paddock near his residence at . Meadow Oeek, near Wangaratta, on Thursday after noon.

Choir Against Parson. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914

Choir Against Parson. It looked like a duel between the parson and the choir, and at the end of the ninth innings the score seemed to be in favour of the singers It was at the morning service, and the minister, sitting in the pulpit, with a dignified expression, listened to the singing of the usual Anthem. Then .he arose and announced .in a loud clear voice My text will be, ' Now, when the uproar had ceased.' " • ••- ' For a moment the members of the., choir looked as if they had been fed on persimmons instead of peaches, and then they got together and, in the softest kind of whispers, began j to talk it over. ,As a result of the subdued conference a slight < change was made in the musical pro- [ gramme;'and when the Sermon had j endied and the organ pealed forth, j. the choir sang, "Now it is high ■ time to awBke after sleep."

Hedwig Kaetwasser, the twelve year-old daughter of a builder in" the village of Sinzig, near Cologne, may flatter herself on having re ceived the highest offer ever, /made . to a girl of her age in Germany.

Drastic Cures for Colds. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914

Drastic Cures for Colds. The Duchesse de I^ousada states in an English paper that she has an infallible cure for a colH. She did not discover it herself, but it was revealed to her by a friend in Scotland in 188G, since when she has never had a cold of any kind. Here is her recipe • "I was fishing in Scotland in the autum of 1886, and had a bad cold. One of our guests told me that if I would do what she told me I would never have a cold again. I did it next morning, and have not had one since. After my warm bath I was to sponge my throat, back of the neck, ears, and face with the coldest water I could get for about two minutes. It is very simple, but not agreeable in cold Weather until one gets used to it. Some of my friends who havp persevered like myself have had equaP success,- but I. am j afraid that some of them shirk the remedy in the winter, and; of course, that is no use".

OBITUARY. MRS COUSINS. The rather unexpected death of Mrs H. Cousins, wife of Mr Philip Cousins, senr., of Gapsted, occurred on Wednesday last at the residence of her brother, Mr J Hardisty, of Bright. . The deceased lady, not feeling in the best of health some two months ago, decided to seek ■medical attention, and consulted'Dr Sutton, who after treatment pro nounced the case hopeless, but sug gested that a change might afford, temporary relief. Consequently Airs Cousius visited Bright and placed herself under the care of Dr Kidd. j Steady improvement was thought to be made, even up to' Wednesday morning,, when suddenly about 8 o'clock she was seized, with a paralytic stroke, which brought about her sad end an hour later. Mrs Cousins, who was well known and.highlj' respec'.ed in this district;, was the eldest daughter of Mrs and the late Francis Hardisty, sen., and was a colonist of 57 years, having, arrived-at "Port Adelaide with her parents at the age of two years .in the sailing...

And We3twai'd he commenced his lonely ride ; And swift the sun was sinking on a coach o£ gold and red, As up the track along the creek he turned his horse's head; He paused, for one last look, beside the ,'sliprails on the hill, Her voice came softly up to him across the .

Presently ha began to quicken his pace, and as he did ^o, 5ne end- of the barrel wa3 pushed out by some unknown means, and out popped a human head; next a pair of arms pushed themselves out; then the barrel fell to pieces, and a rough-looking countryman, dressed in a loose, shaggy coat, stood up on the horse's back, holding a whip in his hand, which he cracked. The horse at once broke into a swift gallop, and the man pulled., off the great coat, which he threw down, showing that he' had on another one underenath. As the horse went faster and faster, his rider stripped off his other coat; then a third; then a fourth. He seemed to have enough coats on to furnish an old clothes shop, and ap p...

Football. Ovens Association Disbanded. A meeting of delegates, of clubs repre sented in the above Association was held on Tuesday night at Mr R. Mason's resi dence, Mr J. Connell in the .chair. . A letter was read from Gapsted Club withdrawing from the Association in consequence of not being able to get a team together. A long discussion ensued, and as no means could be devised in the way of organising a team for Gapsted, it was resolved that the Asso ciation be disbauded. . It is a matter of regret that such circum stances have arisen. However, a sugges tion has been made which we hope may bear fruit and lead to the game being con tinued here. It is that another Association be formed, comprising Myrtleford, Barwid gee and Buffalo, and that in the-eveut of the latter places boing short of players, Myrtleford men play with them. We hope, at any rate, that Myrtleford club will stick together. Probably matches could be ar ranged with Porepunkah and Bright on their bye dates. A meeting ...
