The gross receipt ; were ^8 10/, and the ex penditure (refreshments, music and printing) £1 16/, leaving a credit balance: of £6 14/. Considering all the circumstances, the result must be considered highly satisfactory. In kh informal discussion, Mr J.

The idea of taking steps towards the attainment x>f such a building was very favorably re ceived, and it is highly probable that the discussion will lead to some thing tangible being done in the near future. There is no denying the fact that a public hall would be a great boon to the community, and the ways ana means should be easily forthcoming.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 July 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. One day a very humble and poor fellow, who appeared to have escaped the vigilance of the private police, managed to place himself in the path of King Christian of Denmark. The King, as usual, full of kindness, stop ped, and said: "My good friend, and what can I do for you?" "Ah, your Majesty," answered the beggar, "what I humbly ask is a , like ness of yourself!" King Christian looked rather aston ished. "I would gladly give you one," said the monarch kindly, "but I do not carry any about with me."' ''Excuse me, your Majesty, but I think if you, will look in your purse you will 'find one." The originality of the idea amused old King Christian, and the man went away the richer by a gold piece. Do right and fear no man; don't write, and fear no woman.

Burning Fire Breaks. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 July 1914

Burning Fire Breaks. On 21st May, at Trentham court of petty session?, Walter Edwin Wilison was charged with having lighted a fire which would endanger forest produce. The defence was that the fire was lighted for the pur pose of protecting private property, by making fire breaks. The bench held that Wilson and other defend ants similarly charged were entitled to protect their property, and dis missed the case. Against this de cision the Crown appealed, on the ground that the decision was wrong in law, and the matter came up for argument before Judge Box in Mel bourne last week. His Honor, in giving judgment, said defendant was not charged with burning forest produce. The issue was whether the fire had endangered such pro duce. The magistrate thought not; and they were entitled to decide as they had done. The appeal was dismissed, with costs.
