Queer Marriage Superstition. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 9 February 1914
Queer Marriage Superstition. A curious idea among the Burmese is that people born on the same day of the week must J.ot marry, and that if they defy the Fates their union will be marked by mudi ill-luck. To prevent the.-.: disastrous marriages, every girl carries a record of iter birthday in lu-r name, each day of the week having a letter belonging to 't, and all children arc called by a name which begins with that letter, i is rather hard if the Marys and Marie- of Burmali fall in love with each oti:cr. I'niike other Oriental lands, the young people are allowed to marry as taste dictates, subject only to the birthday restrictions. Reforming the Calendar. Our present system of dividing the voar into twelve months of a varying number of days makes the working cut kites much more complicated than it '.ecd'be. Already many suggestions have oven put forward, and one of them might lie nut into force by Act of Par liament any day, which would be an ex .•ulle?it and convenient thing for al...

MUCKLEFORD HOSPITAL SUNDAY PLEASANT OUTING. SATISFACTORY ATTENDANCE. INTERESTING SPEECHES. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 9 February 1914
MUCKLEFORD HOSPITAL SUNDAY 1 PLEASANT OUTING. SATISFACTORY ATTENDANCE. INTERESTING SPEECHES. A representative gathering assem bled at the Muckleford Hospital Sun day demonstration yesterday after noon. The day was slightly over the average temperature to be considered pleasant, but the locality being an ideal one—on the bank of the 'Muckle ford Creek in Air A. Woodman's pad dock. in the shade of several large wil low trees—made the outing pleasant. A large number made the journey from Maldon, while Castlemaine was about equally represented. This year the collection was divided between the Castlemaine and Maldon institutions. The function was car ried out on a most economic basis, the expenses amounting to only 7/. The collection realised £8/8/2, which was considered very satisfactory. The speakers billed for the dav were rho Mayor (Cr. Cornish),. Mr H.~S. W. •Lawson, Minister of .Lands, and Mr ,T. A.

CASTLEMAINE'S HIGH AND TECHNICAL SCHOOLS 11 ''1 TRADE CLASSES RAPIDLY FORM ING. £ 1000 WORTH OF PLANT TO BE INSTALLED. SPLENDID OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE YOUNG. ■Matters in connection with the new High School and Trade Classes are proceeding apace. The buildings arc about completed, and when the tenders for the fittings at the High School have been accepted" very little time should be lost in making the building fit for occupation. Before the new Trade Classes can be commenced, plant and equipment, which will cost about £1000, have to be installed. The school council have, we understand, already complet ed a contract for the purchase of an oil engine, and arc now engaged selec ting the plant necessary for the vari ous branches of trade work to be taught at the school. It is satisfac tory to know that the matter has been taken up so enthusiastically by the par ents, and that so many apprentices are enrolling as students.

CAMPBELL'S GREEK FRUIT BUSINESS r DISSATISFACTIOX WITH RAILWAY FACILITIES. I'XFl" LFfLLED -PROM ISES. UXXECESSA'RY LOSSES TO GROW ERS. EFFORTS FOR REDRESS. Great dissatisfaction exists among the fruitgrowers 'at Campbell's Creek (writes our local correspondent). at the treatment meted out. to them in respcct of providing: trucks. Uist year when the Railway Com missioners were on their annual tour the fruitgrowers met them, and were i promised that louvre or covercd in trucks would be sent to Campbell, as the town merited looking after, as it occupied fifth place in yictoria on the list of stations for export of fruit to England and the continent; and also that the existing shed would be enlar ged for the coming season. Nearly a year has elapsed, and the shed has not been touched, and in the getting of trucks conditions are infin itely worse. Although ordered in plenty of time, the invariable reply is that none is available. Orchardists have perforce to cart the l'ruit in the open sh...

SURVEY OF TOWN BLOCKS CASTLEMAIXE AVASTE 1LAXDS MADE AVAILABLE. SOME ADJUSTMENT NECESSARY WORK FOR THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. The survey of the area in the vicin ity ot: Victoria Gully and Little Bendi go, which for a considerable time past the Progress Association and other local bodies have urged should be made available for settlement is, we understand, progressing satisfactorily, and nearing completion. It is rumored that in all probability the survey will, in some cases, entail the adjustment of blocks already held by various residents under residence area titles. This will probably be necessary in order to give symmetry and uniformity to the scheme, and to allow for proper ingress and egress when the survey is completed, and ap proved by the Lands Department. It is expected that those residents in the area, who already hold land will be given an opportunity of impro ving their titles and obtaining a bet tor tenure, and that the Crown lands which are now unoccupied will lie made...
