Porepunkah. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
.»>,t-i'itit-.vxwrtui>»&lt;****,.- mfili«,ff.&«:7 Porepunkahi *— From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. The action of the Bright Schools , Excursion Committee in cancelling all arrangements in connection wifh the special schools excursion to Wangaratta Hospital Carnival has been strongly upheld here, and re sidents from far and wide have ex pressed unbouuded admiration at the stand taken. True, the object of the excursion was for the Hospi tal, but it is well to remember that Charity begins at home, and there is no doubt that the Wangaratta people have been at the bottom of the opposition to the dredge, which has had to pass through a campaign of misrepresentation and calumnj , aud the situation has been regarded with dismay amongst residents and those dependent upon the industry at Porepuukah and. throughout the Buckland Valley. So incensed are the people who have their bread and butter to think about, that they could not think of giving their pat ronage to an excnr...
BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. Victoria, which recovered herself from the boom calamity by starting the Australian dairy.industry, now re ceives butter from Queensland and New South Wales—States which but tardily followed her into this field of : rural enterprise. Shiploads of Syd ney and Brisbane butter are coming into Melbourne every week. The cir cumstance is not usual. Victoria had a dry autumn and the Northern States a wet one; at the same time, butter prices keep low in London, and con sequently Melbourne agents were able to get butter down from the two other capitals at a price which allowed pro fitable competition with the local pro duct. The occurrence goes to show that Australia is rapidly becoming a self-sustaining country, as she should foe. Not many years ago Australia was importing butter from Europe, and now she is helping to find the old world in that and many other food stuffs. "Life," my breddren," said the ne gro philosopher, "am mos'ly made u...

V. M. C. Debating Society. ..., An interesting debate took place 'at'the meeting of the above on Tuesday night, the President, Mr ; M'Keogh, in the chair. The sub ject was, " Should compulsory vac cination be abolished ?" Messrs P. Michelly and P. Barlow affirmed that it should, and they brought forward many arguments and a strong array of figures as to deaths from vaccination and from smallpox in favor of their contentions/ Messrs: W. Beach and J. B. Robertson were' the leaders in support of vaccina tion,- and-they combatted the argu ments of the other side. Rev. R. N. Morrison also supported the ne gative, bringing forth many reasons why vaccination should be compul sory. One of the main arguments for abolition was that diseases were communicated through vaccination, and that more deaths were due. to vaccination than to smallpoxr- The !; other side met this by admitting that diseases may have been caused by the old system of vaccination from arm to arm, but under the pre sent prac...

SAYINGS OF TO-DAY AND YESTERDAY. It is not enough for a man to know a good tiling when he sees it. He must seize a good thing when he knows it.—Anon. None but the brave deserve the fair, and none but the brave can live with Jome~ of them. —Estelle Klaudera The wild free life of the bush sounds very fine in Rolf Boldrewood's ro mances. It is an idyll of happiness and peace surpassing the life of the island valley of Avilion, when it is described in Ethel Turner's pleasant little twiddly-twiddly stories. Harry Lawson, drifting somewhere in the Outback of Life, may remember bit terly how he was assailed and how he failed because he told something of thb sombre truth. Not that there isn't plenty of beauty and hope in the hinterlands of Australia, but it is not all "starlit beauty and dawn dew pearled." Victor Daley, standing in a wine-cellar, heard "the axes ringing on mountain sides." Had he humped a foluey through the ranges after the Lawson. fashion he could have seen and told the st...

• FROM VARIOUS SOURCES^ Distance lends enchantment—but not when you're taking your girl home in a taxi-cab.— "New York Tri bune." , _ The esteemed weather clerk has sprung a new one. It is the word "smog," and it means smoke and fog. The clerk* explains that very frequent ly there are times when this mixture is apparent in the atmosphere, and it considers the new word a great little idea. Very well, "smog" let it be. But why end there? Let's call a mixture of snow and mud "smud." A mixture of snow and soot "snoot," and a mix ture of snow and hail "snail."

Preventing Drunkenness. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
Preventing Drunkenness. A publican was recently convicted for allowing a man in a drunker*. condition to remain upon his licen sed premises, thereby constituting a breach of the L,iquor Act. On appeal from the magistrate's decis ion, the Judge before whom the ap peal was heard made the following observations :—"J wish there were some decisions about this. The Liquor Act .is a stringent one on licensed victuallers. What are reasonable steps for a licensee to take to prevent drunkenness on his premises? Is a licensee bound to send for the police when a man is drunk on • his' licensed premises ? Apparently from the evidence before me, the licensee and his son were continually. putting the drunken man out, and he was constantly hopping in again like a rabbit."

The Schools Excursion Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
The Schools Excursion Trouble. From our Bright Correspondent. The action of the Schools Excur sion Committee in cancelling the trains to the Wangaratta Carnival seems to have drawn forth feelings of both approval and reproach. The Excursion committee from time to time call meetings of delegates to carry out the affairs of the excur sion, but, as is usual with many similar institutions, the burden of the day falls on one or two. who are expected to put their shoulders to the wheel to see the excursion through, to say nothing of footing " the joint and several " with which to provide fun for the day's amuse ment. , The names of the same few can'be seen attached to this very in . teresting document. However, this. '• is by the way. The members of the committee who handle the responsi bility did not take the drastic meas • ' tires adopted until they fully realised how absurd it would be to arrive at Wangaratta with practically two empty trains, besides bearing the 1 . brunt of making up...
Cigar Smoking Record. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
Cigar Smoking Record. ? What is believed to be a 'wo'rld' record has just been set up; at a con-. gress of South German smokers, •held at Frankfort. A special trophy, consisting of a silver eagle on a red and white ribbon, was offered to the ; smoker who took the longest time to turn a Mexican cigar into grey white ash without letting it . once go out. The competition began at 11 o'clock, and very nearty 200-people contested for the award. By. 12 o' clock only. 20 competitors were in the running—the rest had regret fully finished their; " weeds " or had laid them at rest in the ash tray for too 'long. The rivals dropped out rapidly,, and by 1 o'clock onl}' one.smoker was left—Herr Henz, a Sachsenhausen business man, who actually puffed away in peace until he perforce had to throw his diminu tive cigar stump away, 2 hours 46 minutes and 17 seconds after he had I set light to it. Herr Henz has therefore .been proclaimed smoker, laureate.' A town-bred man decided to go out to' a farm t...

There were two other charges against the same de fendants, viz., behaving in a riot ous manner and wilfully damaging the property of K. Michelly. . ■Both defendants pleaded guilty to all the charges,' and elected to be . dealt With summarily.

They had a couple of whiskies, and soon afterwards became noisy and wanted more; which he refused to give them,"and said they had had. enough.
