Mirboo North Races. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915

Mirboo North Races. The Summer Meeting of the Mirboo "North Rate Club was greatly interfered - -with by the weather. For a great many ' -years heavy rain has fallen witlvout fail - on local race days, but the members -were very hopeful of having a fine day on "Wednesday, December 30, as the past year has been an exceedingly dry -one Their hopes were soon shattered, as early on the eventful day rain began to fall, and light showers fell until about noon.' The rain spoilt the meeting in •more ways than one. Needless to say, the attendance was not as large as would have been the case had the day been .1 -fine one. The rain was also responsi ble for the smallness of the fields, as ■several owners would not take the risk of rtinning their horses on the wet ■course. The continual 5'nkof un favorable weather for their .meetings is most disappointing to the members of ^ •the club. Although short of funds, a number "of costly improvements have j iduring the past couple of years been made on ...

Celebrated Mirboo North [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915

Celebrated Mirboo North The township of Mirboo North has the reputation of being the most widely known country town in the State. This fact is no doubt due to the advertise ment it got by a portion of the Amer ican Fleet visiting here in 1908. Senator Findley, when he visited here recently, publicly made mention of the fact, and said, that in one way and another, Mirboo North was always pro minently before the -public, arid no matter what paper one picked up, Mir boo North was always shining in it. Picking up a Melbourne " Herald," dated 24th December, which strayed into the town, we notice Mirboo North again prominently brought before the notice of the public ! The following appears under the heading of " Under The Clocks ":— Suggested .Christmas presents for some people we knowj— The Kaiser (who is reported to be looking very haggard and downcast).— A pot of moustache pomade, and a file of the .latest Berlin newspapers con taining reports of defeats of the Allies.

For in Chancery lane, London, is the Public Record Office, an imposing 'grey stone build ing that holds under its wing millions lupon millions of documents that money cannot buy.

The attendance was good, the house being nearly packed. The pro ceeds were in aid cjf the building fund of the sloyd class room which is being erected at the Mirboo North school.

TERRIBLE HEADACHES, "I am a bootmaker," writes Mr Frederick Miller, Great King Street, North Dunedin, N.Z., "and for ninny years suffered from terrible headaches and irregularity of the bowels due to my sedentary life. After tak ing one box of Chamberlain's Tablets I was greatly benefited and they soon restored me to regular health. Upon the slightest symp toms of constipation I t:ike two or three tablets which always set me right." Sold by Buckland Bros. Foul Breath The old saying that "distance lends enchantment"' was noer more aptly to the point than when applied to those, people whoss breath is laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because I of the condition of thair breath.

"Yes, indeed; I know him well," laughed the maiden. 1 "Shall I ask him to join us?" ask ed George, anxious to display his goodness of nature. | "0 George!" said the girl, blushing; i "this is so sudden." "Sudden? What do you mean?" he asked, in surprise. "Why—why, that's our young min ister." The judge decided that certain evi dence was inadmissible. Counsel took strong 'exception to the ruling, and insisted that it was admissible. "I know, your honor," said he, warmly, "that it is proper evidence. Here I have been practising at the Bar for forty years, and now I want to know if I am supposed to be a fool?"

CLEVER CRIPPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915

CLEVER CRIPPLES. Talleyrand, the notorious French statesman, friend of Napoleon and Ambassador at the English Court, was designed for a military career, but an accident when one year old rendered him a cripple for life. His cunning, cleverness, political pene tration, adroit intrigues, and ingenious subterfuges were vehemently oppos ed by the Emperor's wife Josephine, who energetically denounced him as a "cursed cripple." Josiah Wedgwood, the famous pot ter and scientist, suffered from a di sease of the right knee, which neces sitated the amputation of the limb. Referring to this infirmity, Mr. Glad stone once declared, "It sent his mind inwards; it drove him to meditate upon the laws and secrets of his art. The result was that he arrived at a perception envied by an Athenian pot ter." The early years of John Flaxman, who designed the choicest specimens of Wedgwood ware, were spent behind his father's shop counter, propped up by pillows, and amusing himself by drawing and reading.
