Whorouly. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914
Whofowly. -A From Our Correspondent. Whorouly seemstloomed to dis appointment in the matter of. pro viding itself with a recreation re serve. Negotiations for the pur chase of a block of land have quite fallen through. The need of a pub lic reserve for recreation purposes has long been felt. During the past years the\cricket and football clubs have been moved from, place'"-to place for playing grounds, and have done a great amount of. work in pre paring these different grounds for play. If it bad been possible to ■pill all this work into a permanent public property it would,jiave gone very far towards providing the foot-' ball, cricket and tennis clubs with, good playing grounds, and the dis trict would 'also have had a place for picnics, sports gatherings, etc. The committee formed in the pre sent instance was keen in the matter and prepared to spare themselves no trouble and effort in carrying things to a successful conclusion. , The deadlock to which negotiations have come is, th...

Dore, of the National Bank staff, is at present on his an nual furlough. Mr Smith, of the relieving staff, is carrying out Mr Dore'2 duties during his absence. Operations at the Monarch mine are temporarily suspended owing to the snow preventing the work being carried on. The tram line which conveys the ore to the battery is snow-capped, and consequently work had to be suspended. The snow is reported to be 12 inches deep. •. r The intensely cold and wet weather continues, and the hills are still snowcapped. Rain has been' falling on and off for the whole week. Visitors to the Buffalo last week complained that the absence of snow had taken a lot of the expectant pleasure out of the trip. Hardly had they lodged their complaint when their wishes were gratified, and in no uncertain way, for the Buffalo is at pre...

I Alcohol Slows A Man Down. In an interview Connie Mack, one of America's greatest baseball 'players, says :— 4'1 have Lome to : the 'conclusion that the coutinueil 'class-' shown by the athletics can be put down— if you want it in a sentence, right over the plate—to clean living and quick thinking. And without the one you can't have the otli'er—-the quick thinking. There's nothingto that. Temperance is a fine thing —and don't get the wrong angle on that temperance," he cautioned/ " For one thing,' it applies just as much to eating. "Now, don't get off on the wrong foot. Boozing is not common among the highgrade ball players. It was common twenty years ago ; but to day it is rare in the majors—boozing. Keep in mind, though, that steady —-moderate—drinking g^ts a ball player' in .the end just as sure, as boozing.

THE MAGIC OF FIGURES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914
j , the Magic c.f ^figurks. Among many ingenious methods of telling a person's age the follow is one of the best. I^et us suppose that a boy is fifteen, and that his -birthday is in August Tell him to write down on paper the number of the month in which he was born, and to proceed as fol lows, without, of course, telling you the figures : 1-i Nurnber of month ... 8 Multiply by 2 ... . ... 16 Add 5 ... ' ... '21 Multiply by 50 ;.. ... 1,050 Add his age ... ... 1,065 Substract .365 .. ... 700 Add 115 ... ... 815 When the boy has completed these )steps he tells you the result, and you &lt; can at once tell him that August, the . eighth month, is the month of his birth, and that his age is/ fifteen. The two figures on the right of the result alwaj's indicate the age up to 100, and the - remaining figure or figures tell the month.

Fearful Plight in Bush. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914
Fearful Plight in Bush. A young man named Chessworth, residing near Combaning, N.S W., is now an inmate of Teiyiora hospi tal suffering from a broken leg. After the accident, the victim, who " was working alone in the bush, crawled to his tent, where he re mained without succor for three days. While lying in agony his horse came daily to the tent for feed. Having a rope handy, Chess worth set a loop on the ground to catch the animal by the feet, but was not successful until the third day. Then he held the horse while he managed to saddle and bridle it. With the aid of a log he climbed on to the horse, and rode several miles to a doctor, who found that mortifi cation had set in. While Cheesworth was trying to catch his horse his brother rode with in a couple of hundred yards with out being aware of his brother's pre sence there. The injured man is married, and has a young famiiy. While skating on Sunday, 5 th inst., at Lake Catani, Mt. Buffalo, Mr Goldsworthy, a tourist from Melbourn...
Mortality and Matrimony. MARRIED MEN LIVE LORGEST. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914
Mortality and Matrimony. MaRKIKD MkN lyfvE IvORGEST. • In the course of his investigations in connection with the data of the recent census, the. Commonwealth Statistician (Mr G. H. Knibbs) has obtained some results showing, for males and females separately, the rates of mortality experienced by marriea, and single persons. These figures show that in the case of males the rate of mortality is markedly, lighter for married than for single males, throughout life, and. that for some of the important ages the death rate for single males is as much as 50, 60, or even 40 per cent in excess of that for married males of corresponding age. In the case' of females, however, the opposite tendency holds between the ages of 15 and 44 inclusive, and in the age groups included in this range , the rate for married females ranges from 36 to SO per cent in excess of that for single females. Probably the higher mortality amongst single than ' amongst married males is largely due to a selective influen...

July. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914
July. High v travelling winds, filled with the strong: storm's soul, A re'here, with dark, strange sayings from j the Pole Now is?the time, when every great cave ' rings With sharp, clear echoes caught from mountain springs; This is the season when ajl torrents run Beneath no bright, glad beauty of the sun, Here, where the trace-of last year's green is lost, Are haughty gales, and lordships of the frost; ' Far down, by fields forlorn and forelands bleal, Are wings that fly not, birds that never, speak; But in the deep hearts of the glens, un seen, . ' :. Stand grave, mute forests of eternal ' green; . • And here the lady, born in wind and rain, Comes oft to mourn and clap her palms with pain; This is our wild-faced July, in whose breast . .• Is never faultless iight or perfect rest. —Henry. Clarence Kendall

Porepunkah. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914
Porepunkah. From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. The weather for the past week has been the coldest for some time. The rain that has fallen was badly needed, but it has been accompanied by a bitter wind and snow. At Mt Buffalo, the weather has been most severe. It has snowed every day for the week, but the large number of tourists evidently, came prepared for the extreme. The coach drivers fared worst, some having bitter ex periences. There are now about 104 visitors on the Mount, who &nbsp; seem to appreciate the severe condi tions. _ Porepunkah footballers suffered defeat at the hands of Wandiligong on Saturday. The red and blacks &nbsp; again showed their superiority, al- though the locals did not play up to form through some unaccountable reason. The junior team visit Myrtleford &nbsp; on Saturday and expect the game to be evenly contested. The team will be weakened by some of the players being, engaged with the Seniors.
