Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914

Ovens Vale. From our Correspondent. In compliance with a request from Mr P. Duane, to the Bright Shire Council, a substantial culvert has replaced a time-worn one, in the vicinity of the Happy Valley Hotel. In this connection, it is well to re member that the above council em ploys an engineer to safeguard the interests of ratepayers, and it should not be necessary for ratepayers to approach the council table when a ojulyert crumbles to pieces, c>r a .por tion of the main thoroughfare be comes surface worn ?

THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914

the Mission of,flowers.,. Mr. Rider Haggar^ as . a novelist has . thrilled thousands, but . never, perhaps; did his pen do better work than when it formed' the following words, • constituting, as they ' do, &n enthusiastic and an effective "appre ciation" of flowers: — "I adore flowers," says some lady, contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower spike ma ture. All that such., a one cares for is the blaze of color when it comes, if even she really cares for this.'With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their "opportunities, are gar deners born, it is otherwise. The poor woman, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, in the grimy slum of some' vast city, who nurtures on-the window-sill of her one room a cactus or a rose cut ting. When the cactus opens its gorgeous d...

CHINESE INGENUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914

CHINESE INGENUITY. An interesting instance of • harness ing Nature to assist in the work of man and machinery in building a bridge is given toy the Rev. J. McGow an in his book "Side Lights on/Chi nese Life." The structure to which he refers was built two hundred years ago, and the engineers had many ser ious difficulties to overcome:— "This old stone bridge consists of twenty-five spans, the widest of which measures sixty-five feet. The river is very rapid, and by placing the. piers so far apart less surface is offered to the force of the waters. "The river is liable to very sudden and powerful rises. This feature ne cessitated that the. roadway of the bridge be built of enormously heavy stones, to resist the impetus of the flood without being lifted from their places. The great slabs are seventy feet. long, six thick, and four wide. How did the engineers of two .centur ies ago manage such a tremendous task? "The- stone was quarried from the hills which rise directly from the river...

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. « Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know hbw they are formed?' When snow falls in the Polar re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large aitdifence 1 of young folks in the theatr.e "of the - Royal Geographical Society at burl- 1 ington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So the layers of. sn.iv/ are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but oil a high tableland there is no such es cape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a*' great snow mountain, . because the lower layers are pressed down by the great weight,, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. ' This downward motion is the essen tial feature in the glacier. First the grains of ice are no Digger than a pin's head; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger ana big ger, and the large...
