The Chairman, in moving tlio adoption of. tho reports and balance-sheet, congratulated share holders upon tho improved position at tained by tho company during recent mouths. (Hoar, hear.) Results hail beou materially affected by tt hard bar of clay, and so serious was tho position that the directors had considered the advisability of suspending operations.

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
SPORTING NOTES. Mitchell Bros.' racehorse Trafalgar was last week despatched from Biingonbroug station to Flcniiugton, where bo is to be put in training uuaiu, under tlio (utolage nf Walter Hickonbulham. The Age re ports:—"The silvery-maned grandson of ■ Carbine arrived from Uringenbroug on Friday night, and, though naturally very big, be looks in splendid heart to renew his acquaintance once more with the racecourse. Indeed, with the present dearth of weight-for-ago horses of any class, Trafalgar would not need to bo at his best to win any number of such ovents, and it was probably this fact that influenced Messrs. Mitchell in their de cision to again place the " public idol" in the hands of Uickenbotham for another preparation. There have not bcoii many instances where horses returned from stud dntios have comeback to their old form, but such it short period of retire ment may not have soriously interfered with the son of Wallaco, who is a groat stayer.

A Double Application. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
A Double Application. "Well, sir!" exclaimed the million aire. "What do you want this morn ing?" "I've come again to ask for your daughter," said the poor, but ambi-. tious, young man. "Haven't I told you six times over on as many different days that it is out o£ the question? What do you mean by bothering me in this way? You are making a nuisance o£ your self!" "If I seem to be more persistent thaji circumstances warrant, I must insist that you, sir, are to blame." "I!" shouted the indignant old man. "I don't understand you." "There," said the man who loved his daughter, as he pointed to a, motto over the banker s desk, "is my excuse for coming here day after day: 'It at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again.' Do you bedcva in th?,t sentiment, or have you put it up there simply to deceive people?"

VICTORIAN BUSH NURSING ASSOCIA1 ION. Sister Giiwr, superintending and re lieving nuisoof Iho V.B.N.A., has sup plied us with tho following; interesting account of the aims and work of tho J'uali Nursing Association :— A little over three years ago in tho Ciipo Otway Forest tho Beech Forest Hush Nursing Center was slnrted, in tho faco of groat opposition. It was said that Australian conditions were such that a trained nurse would not be able to justify lier existence in tho bush, though ail were unanimous in declaring that there was great need for her services. To-day the work of the Victorian Bush Nursing stands a magnificent proof that those Mars were unfounded. At present t.liero are 13 cantors working in all parts of Victoria, namely—Beech Forest, Pan mure,' Edenhope, Harrow, Gunbower, Mitta Mitta, Dargo, Buchan, Gunyah Guuyah, Madalya, Welshpool, Meeniyau.

He Lost Her. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
He Lost Her. 1 He had asked her to marry him, and was waiting impatiently for an answer. "Will you expect me to keep house?" she asked. "No, indeed, my love. The servant will attend to all that." "You won't ask me to make bread or broil beefsteaks?" 1 "Certainly not, my angel. We shail have a cook." "And I will not be compelled to pound the wash-board?" "How can you ask such a ques tion? No, no!" "Then I cannot marry you. I have been brought up to do all these things, and I could not be happy in 1 a life of idleness." | When he realised what a treasure he had lost, he went sadly to his' luxurious home, and resolved to re main a bachelor for ever. ?

Trifles Light As Air. Mrs. Gordon had recently moved into the neighborhood. "I thought I would come and tell you that your James has been fighting with my Edward," said one of the neighbors, one morning as she called at Mrs. Gordon's door, "and settle the matter if I could." "Well, for my part," responded Mrs. Gordon haughtily, "I have no time to enter into any discussion about the children's quarrels. I consider my self above such trifling things." "I'm delighted to hear it," was the reply. "I'll send James over on a stretcher in an hour or two."

FIGHTING FOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
FIGHTING FOGS. That London's "particular" — tlie yellow, pea-soup atmosphere which sometimes settles over the Metropolis and materially adds to doctors' bank ing accounts—may be abolished is the hope held out by a French scient ist, M. Onderio, the head of the Lyons Observatory, -whose novel rem edy is to be put to the test at Lyons. The French _ city suffers almost as much from fogs as London, and M. Onderio has formed the theory that these fogs are due to the enormous evaporation from the Rivers Rhon». and Saone, as they flow through that city. This theory is shared by other scientists, who attribute London fogs to the vapor arising from the Thames, as well as to the excessive stroke. Whereas other scientists, however, have usually proposed to banish fogs by attacking them when they have once been formed in the air, M. On derio proposes to prevent their forma tion by a very simple plan. His idea is to suppress uie rising o£ the water vapor by covering the surface of the rivers wit...

THE CELLAR OF DEATH. A NIGHT-WATCHMAN'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
! THE CELLAR OF DEATH. I A NIGHT-WATCHMAN'S STORY. 1 Do I think you inquisitive, sir? Nay, but I don't, 'lis only natural for anyone to ask a man who isn't tliirty-five yet what it was that turned his hair white. For you don't often see a fellow o£ my age with Bhow white locks like these, I'll warrant. I reckon I'm what they call unique. It was a single night in the cellar of the Northcliester. Sugar House that did it, if you care to know, though I ain't so sure that I - altogether •. likes, tolling' my story even now, after six years and more. Many a night ha.ve I I- wakened up from from head to foot,[ after dreaming about that, tarribla..aiiglit. ..Tie hoi; ror o£ it seems fixed "in my brain past all forgetting. It comes back to me so plainly that somehow my blood dries up all in a moment. 1 tell you, sir, if ever any man was rescued from death by the skin of his teeth, It's the white-haired man who stands be fore you. But first of all, before I begin to reach the bloodcurdling pa...
BACK TO THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
BACK TO THE LAND. There are too many "dreamers and ininkers," And not enough tillers of soil; .There are too many eaters and drinkers Who use up the products of toil; There are too many boosters and boomers, With manners too easy and bland; We're cursed with, too many consum ers. We ought to go back to the land. There are too many getters and tak ers, And not enough men who produce; There are too many broad rolling acres Untouched and untilled — out of use; We stick where the grime and the grit is, ., And the streets with the poor' are a-Bwarm; We're crowded too much in the cities, We ought to go back to the farm. We've got to he workers and plough ers, Who "sweat in the fields like true men; We've got to make use of our powers To make the land blossom again. What, me? On a farm? And to stay there? Well, not for a bundle of pelf! X was trying to show you tjie way there, But I'll stick to the city myself. "Pa, what is a diplomat?" . A diplomat, my son, is a man who remembers a lady's...

Wear and Tear. As the years roll on In their track less course, the stress and strain of ' modern existence slowly hut 6urely -have their effect, and, as we approach middle life, most of us suffer from ail ments, such as rheumatism, gout, neu ralgia, lumbago, Bciatica, anaemia, in digestion, biliousness, Jaundice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, atone and bladder troubles. The in efficient action of the kidneys and liver is the prime factor when we suf fer from one or more of these com plaints, and in such cases it is neces- | sary to restore the kidneys and liver . to health and activity ere a cure can i be effected.

Courage. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
Courage. Admiral Lord "Howe, when Captain, was hastily awakened in tlie middle of the night by the lieutenant of the watch, who informed him with great agitation that the ship was on flre near the magazine. "If that be the case," said he, rising leisurely to put on bis clothes, "we shall soon know it." The lieutenant flew back to ths scene of danger, and, almost instantly returning, exclaimed, "You need not, sir, be afraid, the fire is extinguish ed." "Afraid!" exclaimed Howe. "What do you mean by that, Blr? I never was afraid in my life." Then, he addo t, looking the lieutenant full in the face, "Pray, how does a man feel when ho Is afraid? I need not ask how i.e looks." People who live double lives are apt to discover In the end that neither of them was profitable. When a man has failed at every thing else he can still become a critic. Many a man gets a reputation for wisdom by leaving things unsaid.
