•:And P'r'aps He'd Think Again. I'd love to pay the income tax, I'd pay it with delight; I'd- pile the stuff in precious stacks— ii'd sit up half the night.

V THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "I have a little story to tell you, boys," the old doctor said' to the young people the other evening. "One day—a long hot day it had been, too —I; met my father on the road to town. 'I wish you would .take this package to the village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. . Now I was' a hoy of twelve, not' fond of work, and was just out of the hayfield, where I had been at work since daybreak. I was tired, dusty and hungry. It was two miles into .town. I wanted to get my supper and to wash and dress for singing school. My first impulse was to refuse, and to do it harshly; for I was vexed that he should ask me af ter my long day's work. If I did re fuse he Avould go himself—he was a gentle, patient old man—but some thing stopped me—one, of God's good angels, I think. 'Of course, father, I'll take it,' I said, heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. He gave me ; the package. 'Thank you, Jim,' he said, 'I was going myself, but somehow I don't feel very stron...

In all his travels,-he said, he had never seen such beautiful streams. They were most suitable for trout in every, way, and no doubt in a short time would be a great attraction for anglers and sportsmen.

THE POLITIOAL SITUA.TIO.N. During their visit to Bright, the mem ber* of the Labor Partj' (Messrs Elmslie, leader, Tumieclill'e au'cl Rogers) delivered addresses at the Victoria Hall. The meet ing book place on Friday evening, and not withstanding the short notice given the ha.li was fairly well filled. Each of the Speakers was listened to vith attention. Or W. H. Gribblo occupied the chair, and in troduced Mr Elmslie as the future Premier of Victoria. Mr Tunnecliffe was the first to address the meeting, and he devoted the principal part of his remarks to the retirement of Mr Watt from State politics in order to con test a seat for the House of Representa tives. Many people, said Mr Tunnecliffe, were under the impression that Mr Watt had made an important sacrifice, but sacri fices of that kind were apt to make people think. He considered the Essendon seat represented by Mr Watt was on the verge of capture by the Labor party, and in en tering Federal politics Mr Watt was mak ing a v...
BRIGHT. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
BRIGHT. From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. A meeting is called for this even ing to discuss the advisability of providing swimming baths for the residents of the town. The move ment, which was brought forward j by Mr A. H. A. Stewart, Clerk of Courts, at a meeting of the Bright School Committee, is being taken up with enthusiasm and a large at tendance is assured. The idea is, if possible, to fix up the park at the rear of the Shire Hall and, besides swimming baths, to make it an at tractive resort during the summer months. From what can be learned the intention is to get the towns people, by working bees and dona tions, to do a fair share of the work and an effort is' later on to be made to seek the co-operation of the Shire Council. Mr H. Crowther, Shire Engineer, has kindly given his ser vices to promote a scheme which will be acceptable to all concerned. The death of another old resident of the town occurred - on Saturday morning, in the person of Mrs But ler, senr., mother of Mr ...
Winter on the Mountains. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
Winter on the Mountains. . The spell of cold weather has ren dered possible winter sport at many, of the Victorian mountain resorts. Mount Feathertop has already donned its winter' mantle, which will remain until well into the spring, and those desirous of enjoy: ing the exhilarating delights of to bogganing and ski ing may gratify their wishes to the full on its snowy slopes. The cutting of a tourist track from Harrietville and the erection of a shelter hut render it possible, for tourists to lengthen their stay in that district.. At Mount Buffalo, portion of Lake Catani is frozen over, and visitors to the plateau have been able to indulgein safe skating. With the advent of mid-winter the entire surface of the 60 acres of the lake's area will be covered with a thick sheet of ice. Notwithstanding the addition of a second wing to the Government chalet, the accommodation at that establishment is fully booked for part of the winter season.

The Cost of Living. To the Editor, [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
The Cost of Living"., To'the Editor, Sir,—One has to travel away from home to hoar 'the news, they say, but I was greatly tickled to hear from our farmers that Mr Moloney was responsible for the rise in wages, rise in prices, etc f that Labor was responsible for the State land tax, and so on. I often think it a good thing that there have been good seasons, for farmers would certainly blame Labor for a drought. Will our farmers admit that it is impossible for mortals to frame any legislation without inflicting a littla inconvenience on someone ? And surely a man that has passed 20 years of his life on a farm can well be said to sympathise with those on the land.. Let our producers con sider, for instance, who it is that raises prices when in Melbourne so many shops are living on the game. In the City there was one shop to every 13 families, a most ridiculous ratio and a great burden on in dustry in the handling of goods, and the cost always passed on to consumers. In Carlton there wa...

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One "would think, that. there could be no'end to the resources of anger. Men use it in' so' squandering a way, ,that one is- suri>ris&d" that the stock does ' not-* run out.' 'But even this wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the 'best gun-powder^ and; ought to ibe used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should b'e thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out ef the window?; Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper invalua...
