The Rocky Point Road. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914

The Rocky Point Road. At the last meeting of Beechworth Shire Council, a letter was read from the " Country Roads Board, giving liit of roads in the Shire which it was proposed to take over as main roads, knd. asking for Council's opinion. Amongst the roads was that from the Rocky Point Bridge, Whorouly on the southern bonndary of-., the shire, thence north-easterly dnd south easterly to a point near Myrtleford on the boundary of the Shire. The letter had been referred to the Shire members committee for report. . They recommended 5 that the old main Buckland road from Everton would be preferred. The portion of road as proposed would be ver.y costiy to make and would be of no: benefit to Beechworth Shire rate payers The report was adopted. Of course, Beechworth would not advocate anything that might pos sibly be of biu,ifil to another town.

Oddfellows' Balli < The annual ball of- Loyal Myrtle forcl Lodge, M.U., I.O.O.F., which took place at Moore's Hall on Fri day night, was one of the most suc cessful held here.

One for the Farmer Man. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914

One for the Farmer Man. The College of Domestic Economy will in September next send three travelling schools round the country to teach the wives and daughters of farmers. This admirable plan (says a contemporary) deserves nothing but praise, but those who know how hard the women have to work on Victorian farms believe that schools to instruct the men are just as ne cessary. There are probably no other human beings who eat so many heavy, hot meals a day as our farmers and those whom they em ploy. Particularly during the har vest time the life of the women, is one long round of cookin and washing up f om dawu till evening. ■If.' our farmers could be taught to suppress one or two of their minor repasts, and substitute a meal of bread and cheese for one or two of their principal meat meals, not only would they suffer less from dyspep sia, but their women folk would be relieved from a little of the drudgery that makes many of them old before their time. In various other ways the co-oper...

Wright and the Wangaratta Hospital. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914

Wright and the Wangaratta Hospital. To the Editor. Sir,-—'The remarks by your Bright cor respondent in the last issue of the " Mail" would lead one to suppose that the resi dents of Bright were the most influential and also the most numerical portion of the Shire. Nevertheless it is desirable that when the people of Bright are honored by the trust of. the rest of the district, that that'trust should not be betrayed. This is the only " bone of contention " between the School committees of Myrtleford dis trict and. the Bright School committee. Your correspondents says—" The members of the committee who handle the responsi bility did not take the drastic measures adopted until they fully realised .how ab surd it wonld be to arrive at Wangaratta with practically two empty trains, besides bearing the brunt of mating up any defi ciency," How far the committee were cor • rect in " fully realizing" such a terrible failure remains to be proved on Aug. 12 ; but it is most misleading to say th...

Small-Pox Scare. In consequence of the- small-pox scare in Mel bo lire, passengers by 'the' trains from Sydney are again being examined-between Albury and Wodonga.. The Minister of Health refused to assent to a pro position that the" inspections should take, place between Wodonga and Wangaratta, as the latter town w-a-s too far into Victoria's territory for a • smallpox subject to be landed. \ vMr Parkinson, writing to a Mel bourne paper, says—-"from 1881 j to 1910 the total deaths in Australia j from smallpox was 108. During the same years there were 6258 deaths from measles, yet who ever hears, from medical men of the terrible ravages of measles? There were 5369 cases of diphtheria last year in Victoria alone, and 245 deaths, yet they go blandly on. The mere pos sibility of a case of small pox sends our medical authorities out of their wits." In the Adelaide Insolvency Court on Tuesday the case of Oscar Mayer, an agent, was mentioned. The so licitor for the creditors, in applying ...
