Boxing Day Sports Meeting. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

Boxing Day Sports Meeting1. , To the Editor. .Sir,—1 have watched your paper care- i fully for some time- in the hope of seeing something in regard to the Myrtleford Racing and Sports Club, but have not • dropped across anything. .1" understand the last meeting, on Boxing Day was a success, both financially and otherwise, though no statexnont in connection with it : appears to' have been made public. - There" is also-another matter to whioh I would direct attention. It will be remembered that some time back a meeting of the North-Eastern Racing Club's Association was held at Wangaratta, when the matter of allotting; dates came up. Bright wishes to obtain Boxing Day, but to do them jus tice 1' might- mention that their representa tive did not press the matter, to a decision at that meeting, preferring to defer it until Myrtleford was represented. The matter was accordingly deferred to a meeting to be held in August. Now, what I want to s impress on Myrtleford Club is the necessity fo...

The Social Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

The Social Problem, (By Miranda.) " The difference between Liberal ism and Labor is the difference be* tween tweedledum and tweedledee." ! It was quite refreshing to read the foregoing in a contemporary. Pre ceding, as it does, the Federal elec tions, it would be interesting to learn with what amount of f6re thought the writer paraphrased the sentiment, and as it is assuredly " A Voice from theBush," the natural amount of wisdom that should accompany such an excep tipnal utterance can tje regarded as interestingly vague. If the cause, and'effect of action be not directed I in a particular channel, it must as suredly be in opposition to it, hence it can reasonably be opined that, in the circumstances, the difference between Liberalism and Labor is the difference between east and west, and so apparent are the disturbances thaf attract attention du this-parti- ' cular that it cannot yet be reason' ably argued that J'there is no country in the world with a more .prosperous or calm state...

Football. Upper Buffalo v. Lower Buffalo. A match between teams as above, played on Saturday at Messrs Moore Bros' ground attracted a fair num ber of spectators. As it was recog nised that the Upper team was too strong for the Lower, a handicap of two goals was allowed, but this was not sufficient to equalise matters, : and the Upper won by 44 pts.

Postal Matters. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

Postal Matters. To the Editor. Sir,—-An exasperating state of affairs exists in connection with the letter box at the railway station. Its use undoubtedly, is to . convenience the public in posting letters after eight at night, but its position is so absurdly placed that a man must stumble over wires, climb up the platform, and then grope about in the dark and get back as best as he can off the platform and along the line once more. In all other sta tions the box is placed on the outer door, and all this inconvenience is obviated. As for ladies, it is impossible for them to reach the box here, and they have to wait about' nntil they are' lucky enough to find one of tho sterner sex and let him risk hi; neck or leg.. At Bright the mail is not closed at the post office until' 1U.. If no move is made in the matter, it would be as well to asir that all mails be made up at 6.30 every morning, thus saving the officials the work at 8 every night. Another matter required is the speeding up o...

SMOKER LAUREATE. MAN KEEPS CIGAR ALIGHT FOR 2 HOURS 46 MINUTES. What is believed to be a world's re cord has been set up at a congress of South German smokers, held in Frank fort. A special trophy, consisting of a silver eagle on a red and white rib bon, was offered to the smoker who took the longest time to turn a Mexi can cigar into grey-white ash without letting it go out. The competition be gan at 11 o'clock, and 200 people con tested for the award. By 12 o'clock only 20 competitors were in the run cling—the rest had finished their "weeds" or had laid them at rest in the ash tray for too long. The rivals dropped out rapidly, and by one o'clock only ane smoker was left— Herr Henz, a Sachsenhausen business man, who puffed away in peace until he had to throw his diminutive cigar stump away two. hours 46 minutes and 17 seconds after he had set light to it. Herr Henz has therefore been proclaimed smoker laureate. ■ A man went to a judge and asked whether he could bring suit for slan ...

AUSTRALIA'S PRESS. SECOND PLACE IN WORLD. ONLY AMERICA AHEAD. The newspapers of Australia come in for some warm praise from Dr. Walter Williams, Dean of the Facul ty of Journalism at the Missouri . Uni versity. Dr. Williams has just "con cluded a world tour investigating the methods, of news-handling in the vari ous countries, and his visit to Aus tralia some months ago will be well -remembered. On his:return to America he was interviewed 'by the St. Louis Republic, a whole page of space being devoted to describing his observations. In the course of this interview he says: "Australian journalism; interested me deeply. Australia is the only country where the salaries of news paper men are regulated by law.

Let us publish it over your name, and it will make you famous." "I'm not after fame," objected the author. "It's money I want." "Biits you'll get just as much money in either case." "No, I won't. If I publish it over my own name, my wife will get the money." "It's no use talking," said Smithers, dejectedly. "It's impossible to make a woman understand even the first principles of finance." "What's the matter now?" inquired his friend. " "Matter!" said Smithers. "Why, when I was away yesterday the baby swallowed a penny. And what does my wife do but call in a doctor and pay him five shillings for getting the penny back." Miss Pretty: "I don't see how you manage to whistle through your fin gers that way. I...
