A BURIAL IN TONGA. CEREMONY IN SOUTH SEA ISLE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

A BURIAL IN TONGA. CEREMONY IN SOUTH SEA' ISLE. By Te Pana. The big chief :was dead. Almost as rapidly as the force that sends jiews speeding along strands of wire unde_r seas and over land sped the mouth-. carried message. It penetrated into neat villages in the interior, and travelled to palm shaded huts strewn along the sands guarded by spray cov ered reefs. The big chief died last night. That was the message. Out to tiny islands it went, to isolated plantations, to parties at kava, to •head men" in the midst of harangu ing their people, to college students poring over books. The big chief died last night. It was enough. Respect is instinct "with the Tongan. Custom, habit has it, that all people shall be at the ceremony of laying great men at rest. And the big chief WAS a great man. He had worked well for his country; step by step mounted higher until he saw over the palm tops and view the sea and the spray from afar, and the people from the level j places jumped at his bidding. ...

Rust in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

Rust in Wheat. A farmer recently wrote to the Agricultural Department as follows —" L,ast harvest I had a crop of Federation wheat slightly rusted. From that crop I have some time since ploughed in some self-grown wheat, the plants of which seemed badly rusted. Is it possible that these self-sown plants got their rust from the previous crop, or did the rust come as the result of mild, wet weather while' the self-sown crops xwere' growing ? My real reason for ' asking above is another question— Is it possible for the rust on the ploughed-in plants to remain in the soil active and able to infect my next crop, the seed of which is now being sown, or does the rust only come from some agency outside the soil, which is assisted by. atmos pheric conditions ?" In reply, the Chief Inspector of Agriculture stated that there WcS no danger of a rusty, self-sown crop which had been ploughed in infect ing a subsequent crop of wheat sown on the same land. The rust only came as the result of certai...

The Dog Poisoning Fiend. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

The Dog Poisoning Fiend. We regret to learn that some heartless creature has been at work recently amougs the canine' friends of several residents. Mr W. Ryan has had-two valuablevdogs poisoned at his residence near the'' saleyards. One of these/a favorite cattle dog, succumbed, but the other was no ticed in time aud remedial measures led to his recovery.. A. piece of roasted meat was picked up by one of the dogs, which had not been out of the yard, and on examination it was found to have been poisoned. This bait mig'ht just as easily have been picked up by children playing about, and fatal results might have fol lowed. . No punishment could be too severe for the miscreant who throws poisoned baits about in such an indiscriminate manner, and it is to be hoped the perpetrator may be discovered. Mr Cundy, in thesame neighborhood, .had a dog poisoned while on the chain in his yard, and Mr S. M'Donald also lost a valu able animal by poison Canine pets in other parts of the town have als...

Cure for Chilblains. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

Cure for Chilblains. Cured writes—" A sure cure for chilblains (unbroken) is to secure a bucket of boiling water and place the bare feet over the rising steam ; keep the feet and ankles covered with a towel so as not to allow the steam to unnecessarily escape. In doing this sufferers from the trouble will find that" the steaming process will be very hot and it will be im possible to hold out very long with the towel .over the feet. When one can not hold out any longer take the feet away for a second or two and then replace them in the. same covered position, continuing the treatment until the water has well cooled down. A little soda to the water will be found to be beneficial. I have never known the process to fail.'.'

Cure Worse Than Disease. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

' Ciire Worse Than Disease. To the Editor. Sir,—There appeared in a recent issue of the " Mail " a letter from the Fisheries and Game Department stating, the conditions under which the residents of Buffalo River may reduce the number of' kangaroos on their holdings. In the first place, to my knowledge, this proposal has been rejected no fewer than six times Now, jus»t think what it means to the settlers of Buffalo River to carry out. Fifty settlers are asked to kill 40 kangaroos each—2000 to skin and preserve same ; take the lowast cost at 5/per head, that is <£500. This is the sum we are asked to contribute for having the privilege of grazing State "kangaroos. This is what we get from a sympathetic departmental officer. Surely it is time we were relieved of this senseless act. Wherein the wide world is there any sense in having this destructive pest protected. Surely the legislators who had a hand in putting this tax on settlers will see what they are doing for us (who t...

Critic's Criticism. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

In liis letter he says, " I did not say tangoes or turkey trots were danced; f said'some new-fangled dances-—I don't "■know what they were." What a bad memory " Critic " must - have. How about this—" Some of the ue\v-f angled dances, turkey-trots, tangoes, or* something of that character,'were introduced." " We all know what sort of a character the tango and turkey trot gets!

The School' Committee has had'a few repairs and small additions made to the school recently. It is, however, proving a very slow mat ter to get the Department to proceed with the much-needed work that has been promised for some considerable time. An additional room has been promised for the residence and is much needed, and the dilapidation ' caused by white ants, &c., is con tinually growing worse. An en larged cloakroom, • also, is needed for the schoolroom in place of -the . tiny box in which at present cloaks, hats and schoolbags are crowded—^ and damaged too often.

Wangaratta Carnival Excursion. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914

Wangaratta Carnival Excur sion, Mr A. J. Croucher has received word from Mr Valletider, chairman of Wangarrtta Hospital Carnival Committee, ^hat every support will be given to the excursion train which it has beeu decided to run from Bright on Wednesday, 12th August. The cancelling of the original arrangements by Bright people has turned ont a splendid advertisement for the Carnival, and the train, so far as indications go at present, should be largely patron ised. A public holiday for the date of the carnival has already been proclaimed throughout the Shire. . A letter was received from Har rietville yesterday, stating that the School Committee thore hid de-.. clined to endorse the Bright action, so there are evidently some people there who will ratronise the train. It is also reported that Bright and Wandiligong bands have both de cided to make the trip as originally arranged.
