FROM PAPUA. WHITE .WOMAN . ON PATROL,!' TANGO NOT THERE YET. Mrs? Greenland, who is at present in Sydney, has spent just eight months in Papua-on the Mambare River, in which division her husband was magi ' strate. It is "away up near the Ger man border, and the only other white woman lived 70 miles away! "But we knew each other quite • well," Mrs. Greenland said, "although .we; actually met only three days ago, here in Sydney. They had plenty of • eggs at the other station, and a na tive boy would often .arrive with a lit tle gift from my unseen friend. It ; seemed so strange meeting for the first time across a hotel dinner table, v alter having exchanged so many let ters through native carriers." "What did you do all day?" "Well, in the morning I'd fuss round, thinking I was very busy with odds and ends, then I'd read, and on . the station there is always something happening, so that time never; hangs on our hands.

Death of Carbine. j Carbine, the greatest racehorse in• 'the history of the Australian turf,. i • has died at Welbeck Abbey, Eng land, the seat of his owner, the Duke of Portland, at the age of 29 years. Walter Hickenbotham, who was associated with Carbine in all ' his , ■ Australian victories considers that "Carbine was " the best racehorse in the world," and in support of this contention points out that none of the English cracks of modern years : ever ran in the number of races nor Cc rried successfully > over all dis tances the weights' that Carbine did.

"Critic's" Criticism. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 18 June 1914

" Critic's " Criticism. To the Editor. SirJ—l"n answer to " Critics " babbling • remarks re the dance recently, lie is a per fect stranger to the tiuth, which is a polite •way of calling him something strouger. The ladies'in the hall made no attempt -whatever to dance the tan^o or turkey • trot. They certainly did try two new dances, the Valetta and the La Rink, both waltzes. So the only conclusion I can come to is that " Critic " must have been foo' the noo. So nxuch for the tango and tur key trot. The " hoodlum " (ycur pet name for them) did turn the lights out; but who if* " Critic" sneering at over that—the young fellows running the dance or the . ladies ? He should have put a few more lines in his little corner in the " Mail" and asked where our constable was. Had he been there to stop the noise outside, noth . ing could have been said about the dance. Had they rolled over and over each other (like they did at a dance here about twelve months ago) " Critic" would have been able...

Turkeys for Profit. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 18 June 1914

Turkeys for Profit. AN.S.W. exchange says—A very profitable industry is being carried on in the Young district in the raising of turkeys. The farmers are now realising its importance, and are going in for it in a whole sale manner. They find that there is always a good market for iheir product. Turkeys do well ' oni' the' from where there is plenty of room to roam about, and gather, for the • most part, their own food. The'y » particularly like to get into a culti vation paddock after the wheat has been taken off. The seed wasted through faulty machinery is here j turned to good account. The coun- j try freezing works are fostering the | industry They send out vans to all parts of the district to bring the birds in, and since good pricas are offered, a van sent out never returns to the works without a full load.

BRIGHT. From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. With the closing of the tenth of Juneratepayers became busy secur ing admission on to the - roll by pay ment of their Shire rates. The re sult has so far been satisfactory, for close upon ^1800 has been collected, but with a large amount of arrears brought forward from last year there is still far too much outstanding. The final Opportunity will be given to ratepayers to pay their rates be fore 4th August, and after that date the Council will no doubt proceed to stronger measures if occasion re quires it, to say nothing of the fact that defaulters will be called upon \to pay inrerest in, addition, dating from February last. However,' it is to be hoped that the arm of the law will not be found necessary to en force an obligation which devolves upon every member of the com munity rich and poor alike. ■ The Shire Council is in receipt of a communication from the Country Roads Board, advising that the ' Board has agreed to the building of new bri...
