Ain't It Fine To-Day? [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
Ain't It Fine To-Day? What's de use o' always weepin', Makin' trouble last? What's de use o' always keepln' Thinkin' o' de past? Each must hab his tribulation; Watah with his wine.

WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
WEANING THE FOAL. The hardest thing to overcome in weaning foals is the actual lose of the ! companionship of the" mother, which causes the colt to worry and fret. Horses are nervous animalB, and the colt, being deprived of his "best friend," often spends much time in running up and down his paddock or stall, neighing, pawing and whimp ering in a vain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to com pany of his kind, if not of his mother. To take the place of his dam, the best possible substitute is another colt. Where a colt of the same age is not available, the use of a "yearling ing arrangements are such that the yearling gets his share of the feed given. For the best results, it is ne cessary to keep the foal which is be ing weaned out of eight and heating of the dam, as every time they see or hear each other only serves to pro long the period of fretting by reviving their memories. The main point in the weaning, all things considered, is feeding the colt. On no account ...

For Bronchial Coughs, take Woods' Great Peppermint Cure, 1/0. Is. rabbit-trapping. Cruel?—A. vice president of the South Austra lian Society for the Protection of Animals has defined the position : taken up by the Society in regard to animals. He said the society had for its • object the prevention of cruelty to those living animals which man had reduced to his service. The Society' did:not desire- to interfere with old and, recognised sport indul gence in which vyas a matter of taste. v'"' ' Speaking at Colac, Mr Burston, organiser of the State School Teachers' Union, said the efforts of present d ay teachers were clogged and made futile by fripperies known as "new education;" and the' policy of changes in programme. Each change tended to intensify the chaos, and true' education was pushed aside.
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Pickles may be kept from becoming mouldy by laying a little bag ofmus- ■ & tard 011 the top of the pickle jar. Should the smell of burnt food per meate the house, immediately put vinegar on to boil, and tivi odor will be counteracted. Hot water used both internally and externally is highly recommended by - medical men as a cure for insomnia Bathing the feet in hot water is said to be particularly efficacious. A few drops of castor oil will be found most beneficial to drooping ferns. Drop the castor oil on the roots, and soak the ferns i.i a pail, of water all night. In a week a marked improvement will be noticeable. Eggs often burst when boiling if not quite fresh. To prevent this, be- ; fore boiling make a puncture with. & needle in large end of egg, passing through shell and the skin inside. Through this fracture the expanding gas will make good its escape. To lengthen the service of an incan descent mantle, put a string through the loop at the to...
THE VALUE OF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
. THE VALUE OF MONEY, o, Someone has'-said, "Mon'eydoes not . make the man; but things are apt to be much more; comfortable when the man makes money." We'redd-of misers who, love money just for the pleasure it gives them to hoard it, to handle it, and to count it over; "but such" cases are rare. Money is chiefly valued for what it •can bring, and it seems foolish for a person to claim to care nothing for. it. True, money alone cannot buy "health, education, friends, and happi ness; but if rightly valued and used, it can help to give us all of these. Of course, the environment, character, •and habits of a person shape his views on all subjects. If one has ."Seriously felt the need of money, and is obliged to work hard to obtain it, he •will be much more likely to know its true value than the person to whom it has come without any effort of his -own. It is said that women as a class do not know the value of money, and are prone to spend it foolishly. As far as my acquaintance goes, th...

PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
k PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with money.;iii hanfl .^e&n select and purchase furniture, and any hands can place said furniture around1 the four .walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom; but there is furniture and furniture/, furnishing and furnishing, and therein lies the philosophy we wryte of; not that inanimate wood has this of itself, but the maker of each piece of furniture, be it of sim ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into it, with each planing and chiselling, each twist and curve, the mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as hi eye is artistic and delights itself in the beautiful, so he wills the tolock of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chasteness. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for the purchaser, the household er is not by this assured a tastefully furnished home. A taste to fashion is one thing, and a taste to select and arrange another. The buyer should ...
STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. To ascertain the time at night the Apache Indians employed a gourd on which the stars of the heayens were marked. A& the constellations rose in the sky the Indian referred to his gourd and found out the hour. By turning the gourd around he could tell the order in which the constella tions might be expected to appear. The hill people of Assam reckon time and distance hy the number of quids of betel nuts chewed. It will be remembered how, according to Wash-, ington Irving, the Dutch Colonial As sembly was invariably dismissed at the last puff of the third pipe of to bacco of Governor Wouter Van Twil ier. A Montagnis Indian of Canada will set up a tall stick in the snow when travelling ahead of friends who are to follow. He marks with his foot the line of shadow cast, and by the change in the angle of the shadow the oncoming party can tell, on arriving at the spot, about how far ahead the leader is. It is well for one not to try to do too much each day. To ...
Meteorological Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
Meteorological Humor. | An Irish jarvey was driving an Eng lish visitor on a (bitterly cold day through the wilds of Connemara. They became very sociable on the way, and the native, in a burst of confidence, pointed out a shebeen where the "best potheen In the country" might be obtained. The Englishman, only too glad of an opportunity of warm ing himself, offered refreshment, and the offer was readily accepted. "'Tis a very cold day for these parts, Pat," remarked the tourist. "'Tis, yer honor!" replied Pat. He raised his glass, and the contents speedily vanished. "And there's truth in the old sayin',": he added, smacking his lips suggestively, '"Wan swallow niver made a summer'!" Visitor: I suppose you are imam ma's darling? Little Girl: No; I am my mamma's moving picture. Visitor: Your mamma's moving pic ture? /. . v • - . Little Girl: Yes; she is always telji ing me that I should be seen and not ' heard! -.";i \ ,J . V

A Witty Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
A Witty Woman. Some stories told • about Mrs. Wel dbn, the celebrated "Modern Portia," "who recently -passed' away, indicate what a clever woman she was. She once set the court laughing ow ing to her replies to counsel. "You are Mrs. Georgiana Weldon?" she was aeke^. "No, I am not!" came the prompt reply. "But surely you are the wife of Mr. Weldon?" "Yes, I am." Finally she enlightened the barris ter, who had come near to losing hiB temper, that her name was Georgina, not Georgiana. "Why couldn't you have said that at first?" he thundered. "Because, she answered, in her sweetest accent's; "you never asked me!" On another occasion, in the Court of Appeal, she urged' as one of the grounds of her "complaint that the judge who had given the decision against her was too o-d to understand the case. The chief judge reminded her that the last time she was there she complained that her case had been tried by a "bit of a boy" who could not do her justice. "What age do you want a judge to be?"...
"Home Com[?]orts" in the Bush. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
" Home Com. cuts" in the Bush. r Xhg lot ;e>f the:timber cutter w&s described to the . Minister,of; Forests by > a, deputation>• from:,the timber Worker's Union of Australia; They stated that the huts provided by the . saw milling companies, for the men to live in were usually wretched structures, some without windows, and the majority without proper space or ventilation. On the other hand, in many others thei;e was a large excess of ventilation; the places were full of draughls and breezes, and were unfit for use as dog kennels. What was needed was the introduction of legislation on the lines ' of the New Zealand Shearers and Agricultural Workers' Accommodation x\ct, which necessi tated the provision of 400 cuhic'feet of hut space for each man and 4$ feet of floor space for saw mill em ployes. In one case in Victoria four men were compelled,to live in a hut of 14ft by 20ft. The Minister-replied that the re quest for proper living accommoda tion was reasonable, and ...
Rheumatic Microbe. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
- " Rheumatic Microbe. Rheumatism is a preventible dis ease, according to Dr. Poynton, of the Institute of Hygiene, Loudon. ''The disease . rheumatism," he says, " I look upon as essentially an infection with a micro organism. These little seeds of future trouble were sown everywhere in great cities, £tnd that the first effects they . produced were on quite young chil dren, mostly in the form of heart disease. Of course, rheumatism is not the only cause of heart trouble in children who are less than twelve years of age,, but Dr Poynton's note book shows that of 500 cases in w.hich a heart was affected 350 could be traced to rheumatism. The infection • seems to be everywhere, but there are certain conditions that make a child very receptive. The disease is . much more frequent in early life among the poorer classes. Next comes heredity, and after that climate. He doss not think that diet has any bearing upon the causa tion of disease in childhood, though possibly later in life it may...
Correctly Translated. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
Correctly Translated. The schoolmaster opened . the dirty-looking envelope and smooth ed out the crumpled sheet of paper. His brows contracted as he read the first word. Who had dared to-insult him thus, he, a village schoolmaster? This is what he read :-r- . Cur, ass, you:are a man of 40 legs, I wish to inter my son ia your skull. Who was insulting him Who had dared to play a practical joke upon him ? Then the truth slowly dawned. He had received some queer letters from illiterate parents, but this was the strangest of all. With a fellow master he translated it correctly like this: ,.r, .t-J. Sir,—As,you are a man of knowledge, Je wish to enter my son in your school.
Bright District Schools Excursion. WANGARATTA CHOSEN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
Bright District Schools Excursion. Wangaratta Chosen. A meeting of delegates from the various school committees of the district was called for Saturday to consider a request from the Wan garatta Carnival Committee to run the schools excursion this year to that town on the date of the Carni val, viz., Wednesday, 12th August. While several committees wrote giving their opinions, only Bright, Wandiligong and Eurobin were re presented by delegates. Myrtleford, Ovens Vale and Harrietville favored the idea, as did the delegates pre sent. Freeburgh wrote expressing the opinion that tte date was too early. As there appeared to be a big majority in favor of holding the ex cursion as suggested, the secretary was instructed to complete arrange ments, provided train accommoda tion could be secured. The Secretary is already in com munication with the Railway De partment in the matter, and the re sult should be to hand almost im mediately. Certainly August ap pears early, but the'Depaitment ab so...
FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
FOOTBALL. Tlie Bright team visited Freeburgh on Saturday in connection with the Associa tion matches. By the side of the locals the Briglities looked light, and subsequent events proved this to be true, for weight told in nearly every instance, with the fe sult that Freeburgh ran out easy winners. Certainly Bright was not strongly repre sented, but that was no fault of the victors, who displayed good football throughout and-showed that they will have to be rec koned with before the season closes. An unfortunate accident happened early in the game to D. M Fadyen, captain of Bright team. While going for the ball'he collided with a Freeburgh player, which resulted in a broken jow. As il'Fadyen was in a bad way, lie was hurriedly taken to Dr Kidd's ; surgery, and he is still Tinder the doctor's care. No less-than three other Bright players were accidentally disabled, and a weak side was further penalised. Howe/er, they battled along to the end, the scores at each quarter being as follow...
BRIGHT. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
BRIGHT. From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. :: The news of the double dissolu tion in the Federal Parliament, which reached Bright on Friday morning, caused quite a stir in the camps of the liberal and Labor parties, and already elections have taken the place of dredging as the > chief topic of conversation. Both parties have been quietly working since the last appeal to the electors, and as usual both are sanguine of success. It is presumed that Mr Parker Moloney will contest the Indi seat against Mr Ahern, al though the local league has as yet received no official intimation, but on Saturday evening a prominent member of the Labor League stated that no other candidate had . a; chance. It is almost certain that Mr Ahern, who was beaten at this end of the electorate in the last con test, .will substantially reduce the gap this time. Organization, both male and female, has been vigorous ly proceeding' in the Liberal ranks, the members of which attribute much of their loss to climatic...
Wife's Night Off. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
Wife's Night Off. Rev. C. H. Grundy, ofBrockley, S.E., discussing the question of a '' night out'' for wives, remarked that middle class husbands in Eng land tieated their'wives as if they were upper servants "> Such men want squaws, they don't want wives," he said. "I am very : strongly in favor of the wife being .• allowed proper amusement. It is ridiculous for a man to treat his wife as a housekeeper only. IknjDW . • a case where a couple had agreed ^ •that oil Thursday evenings each,!, shall go where he and she likes,'and ' - the arrangement has been a great success. Thursday night is an off night. Sometimes they go out tc- • gether, but there is no sense of grievance if they go different ways, and each is not to be too inquisitive about the others movements. This agreement was made on their mar riage six years ago, and they have* adhered to it all all along. They have perfect confidence in one ano ther, and they have equal freedom. This is as it should be. I don't say that s...
