Woman in Burning Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 18 June 1914
Woman in Burning Sea. A good example of physical en durance of women in emergencies is afforded by the story of Mrs Anna • Boeme's two hours swim in the sea at. night, while she was all tbe time in danger of being overtaken by t a. ^ flood of burning benzine.. &lt; Mrs' Boeme was the wife of tbe captain of the Russian steamer Kometa, which blew up off Algiers by night, and was completely burned, with the loss of fifteen of h$r company. The captain put his wife into a boat-after the ship had burst into flames, but it capsized. ' She began to swim in the black water,- which was lit up by the burning ship. The benzine spread 011 the sea and formed ' one vast, burning film, which the wind drove towards her. F01 two. hours she swam desperately , from the flames. At last, when she was on the point of giving up, she heard a voice shouting in Russian, „ " Come here !" It was the chief stoker and-some of .the.men in a boat which was full of water. They hoisted her into it, and she sa...

Trade in Human Hair. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 18 June 1914
Trade in Human Hair. Fashion is said to have killed the demand for high class long hair from China, both in Europe and the United States. At the present mo ment the demand for human hair is not too heavy ;J if the flat style of hair dressing remaius in favor those engaged in the hair trade may ex pect a slack time. A few years ago there was a boom in hair, and Ori ental hair was much used, since the supply of European hair was not sufficient to meet the demand. It is neither as fine nor as pleasant to look at as European hair, and has to be bleached aud treated to obtain light shades. The best hair comes from France, Germany, Italy and Austria, and a woman who owns a really good head of it can sell it for j£3 or more. Fine, straight hair fetches a good price ; curly hair, which is rearer, realises more, and the most expensive, as well as the most difficult to procure in any quantity is the white.
Children's Home Lessons. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 18 June 1914
Children's Home Lessons. An address on the subject of Cjm pulsory Home I,essous, for children under 16 years of age, was delivered by Dr. Eder at the Woman's King dom, Olympia. He pointed out that there are two grounds on which a protest ought to be made—physi cal and psychological. One of the worst aspects of the .question is found in the fact that artificial illumination affects the eyesight of the ,workers. Parents do not really understand how much harm can be done by careless lighting. Children sit down to read 'and write for the whole evening after having spent the long working day iu similarly cramped positions. Spinal defects are often, the result of this indiffer ence to the ordinary laws of hygiene, and mental fatigue is developed. Dr Eder explained that mental fatigue brings on a state of dulled perceptions. A, Berlin doctor has investigated the conditions of school children in order to find out to what j length of time studies might, with* profit, be carriei on. After the...

Pty L,td., agricultural implement makers, of West Footscray, sued N. Ablett, of Myrtleford, farmer, for ,£93, the price of a harvester, and alterna tively for breach of agreement to buy.

Death of Racehorse. The following, taken from a Broome (W.A.) paper has reference to an ex-Myrtlefordite, a son of Mrs Wye :—Much sympathy has been expressed by racing men generally with George Wye concerning the death of his old favorite, Bright Star, which took place last Monday ' night. Wye only returned from the.Fitzroy Races a week ago to find his horse (which had been left j in Broome) in a bad way. He ap peared to be suffering from kidney | complaint, followed by complica tions, and although Wye knew the horse could never race again, he was so much attached to the old fellow, that he persevered with him to the last, and scarcely left him night or day. Bright Star, who was by Maecenas—bright Rose, has been rightly termed the Carbine of the Nor'-west, gameness being his chief point, a sample of which we 1 had at our recent annual meeting, when carrying the steadifer of 11.12 in the Broome Handicap, of 1 % miles, he ran a good horse like Kylie (9.8) to half a head ; some people ...

Hints to Dairy Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 18 June 1914
Hints to Dairy Farmers. . A By R. T. Archer, Senior Dairy Inspector. Don't feed strong smelling foods immediately before or during milk- ! ing. Always after milking—Be cause the milk will absorb any odours that come in contact with it. Don't forget to face your shed east and north.—Because the morn ing sun helps to keep the shed sweet and wholesome. Don't neglect to put an imper vious floor in the milking shed.—■ Because if the floor is not imper-. vious urine and filth soak in, and milk .will absorb smells arising therefrom. Brick or bluestone pitchers grouted with cement, or concrete, make good floors. Don't neglect to limewash the sheds and dairy twice yearly.— Because it helps to keep down flies, disease, and smells. Don't neglect to, have yards pitched or gravelled.—Because sour ing and-taint in milk are due to con tamination, principally by germs found in manure; therefore, all manure must be regularly cleared away. Don't smoke while milking or in the dairy.—Because it leads t...

HIGH ESTATE OF T^E " " CHRYSANTHEMUM IN JAPAN. The chrysanthemum has been culti •'vated in china for more than 2000 ' years, and there is evidence of' its be?, ing cherished in Egypt 1000 years be-, 'fore its mention in China. Whether1 • it came from Egypt to China or vice versa, it is impossible now to deter mine, but the Chinese are prone to re-; gard it as a product of the Far East.
