Notes on Whorouly-Myrtle ford Football Match. .By " On-looker." Myrtleford played like premiers. Tom Pattern is a footballer. The final bell found his rep,utation,.still resting1 on the highest pedestal.'' Jock Quinlivan was only half a rung lower down, and looked like contesting the right to the higher position in the near future. That Hodgens Bros, are climbing up. Watch for them in their split ting- the atmosphere feat. , , Alf. Crameri's sterling game throughout helped the team very much. Good old Sonner likes Kivi boot polish ; never fails to shine when in touch with the leather. Got it at Ewart's, didn't you, Jack? •Martin > did not play up to his usual good form ; nevertheless, the work .he did. was a big factor to wards final result. Tom Reid still sticks to his posts, and triumphs over all opponents who dare intrude on his territory. Bushy and Ike had a walking i match from Mudgegonga. Ike won ! by a small margin, that being the i difference between size 10 and size 6 I ...

In reply to a question in the State Assembly on Thursday, the Premier said the Government hoped'to bring the Workers' Compensation Act into operatiou on, October 1st.... '•■Yarram," of the " Weekly Times," referring to tobacco grow ing, says —'' We have much leeway to make up before we overtake the consumption, and when men like the Messrs Rae, Kneebone and others persist in the industry for 20 or 30 years there must be reasonable justification. At 9,d a lb a- 10001b crop .means a gross return of £37 10/an acre; while the production costs are about ^10. Tobacco is really" a high-priced crop, open to irrigationists or the dry farmer."

I would like to explain however. Mr Kenny.—I am satisfied. I won't buy time payment ring's at £12 when they only c:st -£4.-— Sometimes it is a year or two before you are paid.

Tobacco Growing in Ovens Valley. From an article by "Yarram," in the "Weekly Times," we extract the following: [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

Tobacco Growing in Ovens Valley. From an article by Yarram," iii'the" Weekly Times," we ex .tiiict the following :— .It -is a general impression • that most of th's tobacco produced in the King and Ovens Valley is raised by Chinese. ' Such is not the case. A few of the larger landholders have adopted the share system with Chinese, but the majority of the growers are Europeans. The fact is hopeful for the ultimate success of . the industry, inasmuch as the Aus tralian farmer,is not hide-bound in his ideas, and is constantly in search of useful points that will help him. ■ Between Wangaratta and Myrtle ford, for example, there are about 20 European' growers, including Messrs Albert Kneebone, -1. Rae, T. Kneebone, H. Kneebone, Rae Bros, A. M'llroy, T. Wallace, A. Wallace, W. Hodgens, W. M'Nam ara, Smith Bros, A. Ricketts, ^nd Wi Mackay.

Breach of Promise Case. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

Breach of Promise Case. At the fortnightly meeting of the Y M.C. Debating Class on Tuesday night, an interesting evening was spent in the trial of a breach of pro mise of . marriage case. There was a good attendance of members, and the proceedings were carried out according to court regulations, though we are afraid there would have been several commitments for contempt had the etiquette of the court been strictly enforced. The case was one in which L,ady Ger trude d'Vere sued L,ord Algernon ' Moneybags for ,£3000 damages. The lady (Mr P.s Barlow) was got up for-the occasion, and was accom panied by her poodle dog, the lat ter's presence being several times objected toby counsel for the de fence. The defendant (Mr P. Michelly) appeared to feel keenly the position, and also the many epithets hurled against him by coun sel for plaintiff. The case was tried before His Hcnor Mr, Justice Arthur (Mr A. J.

Interest on Accounts. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

Interest on Accounts. Storekeepers and other traders have frequently complained that the law does not allow them to recover interest when they, obtain judgments for small accounts long overdue. A bill introduced in -the Legislative Council by the Minister of Public Health proposes to amend the Jus tices Act in this connection, by pro viding that a Court of Petty Sessions may, at its discretion, allow a com plainant interest at a rate not ex ceeding 6 per cent, per' annum on tradesmen's, accounts .which are more than six months'v overdue. The complainant must, however, have, made a written demand for. payment, and have given the defend ant notice that interest would be: claimed as frcm the date of the de mand.

Tobacco Made from Vic- j torian Leaf. I , Recently Mr Leslie Bacash,- ac- - companied by Mr H. Tysling, Chin ese interpreter, representing the Khedive Tobacco Pty.

The price paid was 9d per lb. , They visited Myrtleford this week, and inspected the crop of Messrs Smith Bros, at Buffalo River, but we understandv business did not re sult. On Tuesday they saw most of the growers round Gapsted, where they found the tobacco very suitable, but, as the tobacco was not ready to be delivered, no defin ite arrangements were made with the growers, who did not wish to sign* any contract of sale.
