The Wool Clip. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914
The Wool Clip. We have received a copy of Dal j gety's Annual Wool Review for Australasia, which contains an ex haustive summary of everything re lating to the past season's clip and • the marketing of same. The publi cation is in the 16th year of issue, and deals comprehensively not only with the past clip, but also with many branches of the industry con nected with wool. The number of sheep estimated to have been shorn was' 109,692,264, including lambs, which produced 7.87 lbs. per head (including lambs) as against 7 lbs for the previous season. A splendid average monef tary return of 6/4 per head was rea lised, the total wealth produced by the flock in wool alone being ^34,959,463. . The oversea exports of wool, plus quantity retained in . the Commonwealth and New Zea land for manufacturing purposes, give a total of 2,639,280 bales, which makes the clip slightly bigger than the record one of the season 1911.12. . Sheepmasters of Australasia are congratulated upon the wonderful re...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES, Mr, -King-Watt, vice-president of the Victorian Wireless Institute, sug gests a system of backblocks wireless. Each subscriber - would have a station, and would send bis own messages. Everyone wbo know anything about > wireless appreciates the difficulty of maintaining secrecy. When you send an ordinary telegram in the country ' you have a good chance of it reach ing Jts>'destination^ before the per son it is intended for hears what you want to tell him from the butcher's boy,- who was told by Smith's maid, whose cousin heard it from the milk man, whose son is the telegraph mes senger. If the telegraph messenger mixes up its contents with something he read on the postcards awaiting de livery in the local post-office—well, you know what is really meant when you get the wire. When, however, John Mangoldwurtzel taps his Mar coni-Telefunken keys, with the object of instructing his solicitor to foreclose on Archibald Artichoke's mortgage, the odds are long tha...

Lower Buckland School. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914
Lower Buckland School. A complaint regarding the num ber of weeks the Lower Bucklaud State school has been closed owing to epidemics among the children has been investigated by the Educa tion department. In reply to Mr A. A. Billson, in the Legislative Assembly, the Minister of Education stated that altogether the school had been closed for thirteen weeks since, September, 1912. This was ren dered necessary on account of the prevalence of whooping cough and diphtheria at various periods among the scholars, but the school was re opened on 14th July. The Minister explained that it was not the func tion of the department to deal with an outbreak of diphtheria, that being the duty of the municipal. authorities and local health officer.

Prince Oscar became infatuated with, the Countess, who, then met other, members of the imperial family, all of whom were in turiV bewitched by her singing. When the Prince asked his father for per mission to marry the Countess, the Kaiser opposed the match, but finally gave way to the eloquent .'•suppor.t/.which was given tD the Pr.iuce by members of the royal family /who had met the Countess and heard her sing. The most seri ous objection came from Count Bass...

THE ADJECTIVE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914
The Adjective . Game. Did you ever play the adjective game ? First you must provide your self with a number of small paste board cards on which to paste ad jectives cut at random from magaz ines j or newspapers. Old visiting cards will do for these if you can get enough of them, and one card may be cut into strips of uniform size, for it~ is not necessary to have the cards nearly as large as visiting cards. If you cannot obtain the old visiting-cards, any sort of thin cardboard will do for the mounts, or if you ha^e not the cardboard and do not •&lt; want to buy it, then use heavy paper on which to mount the adjectives. ' - - . After you have made the cards, the next thing is to arrange all .those who are to play the game in a semi-, circle and appoint' a leader. Then distribute the adjective cards equally" among the children taking part. The leader is not given any cards. After this is done a good story is selected, and the leader begins to read aloud.. .The story should be...
AUSTRALIA'S FLOWER. GUM BLOSSOMS SUGGESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914
.... AUSTRALIA'S FLOWER.' Gum/ Blossoms Suggested, During the past few weeksvari ous Melbourne-societies, ' headed by the Wattle Day Committee, have been urging the1 adoption of the wattle blossom as Australia's iia; tional emblem. It is now proposed to start a counter-movement, hav ing for its object the official selec • tion of the gum- blossom as the na tional flower. The chief backers of this movement are university pro fessors, naturalists, botanists, and men from the backblocks. They will be satisfied, they say, with the selection of the guru-blossom as the national flower ; believing that the kangaroo is eminently suitable as a national animal. Against the wattle, it is argued that it is not purely Australian, but' was found in Asia hundreds - of year3 before" this. country was known fn Asia it thrives even more successfully than, in Australia —-because, at best, the growth of wattle , here is restricted to certain districts ; .requiring careful: cultivg-;? tion ;to ensure it...
