NOTES ON THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914
.Notes on the (.tamk. " By Critic." Banvidgee, although they lost to VVhor ouly, put dp a good fig-lit. • The game was not so one-sided as the scores would indicate. Soon after the game started, "Critic" . thought " Mudgee " were going to win, as two goals were put up in quick succession. The red and blacks had the assistance of several players from Yackandandah, among .them being Booth who played with the yellow and blacks two or three years ago. These new players intend visiting Myr tleford next Saturday, and judging by Booth's play he has not forgotten anything since he left here, as doubtless' he played the game of the day. Some fine x3lay was put in by Len Knight, who defended well. The same may be said of YV. Murray, who time after time marked in the sticks. " Big Bill" played his game of tlie sea son ; instead -.of hitting- out of bounds managed Co hit it in the right place. Piazza Bros and Pini als.o worked hard for their side, but lack of system spoils good play. Carroll pr...

FootbaSi. Ovens Association. On Saturday last, Whorouly team visited Mudgegonga to iplay the locals in the above Association competition. Tne home team was strengthened by the inclusion, of some fresh players, amongst whom was Booth, a one-time Myrtleford player. Though Mud gegonga went off with a lead at the start, and scored a couple of goals, Whorouly afterwards prevailed to the finish, and ul timately won by 41 pts, final scores being —Whorouly 7.19, Mudgegonga 3.2. Next Saturday, Booth and Beatty will play for Mudgegonga against Myi'tleford. Booth played for Myrtleford in the Bright District Association two year's ago, and his clever cool, play was always worth watch ing. His re-appearanse on the Myrtlet'ord ground will be welcomed by all his old ad mirers. B. Piazza is not likely to play, a. strain in the match against Myrtleford last Saturday week proving troublesome. It would be interesting to see Dickenson or Patton matched against Booth about the centre.

SIMPLICITY ITSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914

GEELONG WAKES UP. PIVOT CITY NOW PROGRESSIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914
GEELONG WAKES UP. PIVOT CITY NOW PROGRESSIVE. Geelong is awake! A few years ago there was not so very much exagger ation in the story that a person in Moorabool-street at 10 p.m. was liable to be looked upon as a suspect. Now its tram bells chime in harmony with, the dulcet tones from the post office clock at midnight. To accord with the professed sanctity of the city, no doubt, the post-office bells ring out a stanza of something like "Abide With Me." But can it be when no= amorous lover with his lass would dare venture to recline on the grassy slopes? Geelong's by-laws state he must sit erect or walk on. Shops and houses are springing up like mush rooms on the banks of the Barwon. The council has had the long fence around Johnstone Park and the tall flag-pole therein painted. And the "tip" below the Gordon College has almost been filled in. Geelong foot ballers need not now lounge about the streets. They can go to their new club rooms and play ping-pong and drink filtered water to...

Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914
Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. Victoria is lagging behind Westralia and New South Wales in respect to grain carriage in bulk. These two widely-divided States are preparing to erect grain silos and elevators, and no doubt they will induce shipping companies to fit up their holds speci ally for the reception of unbagged wheat. Such ships will shun the port of Melbourne until it is brought into line. The grain production of Austra lia is still in its infancy. Distance from the European market hampers its growth. Bulk handling would cut away part of this handicap. The Country Party in Victorian Legisla ture has the chance of its lifetime now to press for grain elevators, while the new Premier is gingerly gathering up the lines of his policy and is in a pliable condition and sen sitive to the promptings of any rea sonable section of his followers. In 1850 only one woman worked for wages to every ten men; now the ra tion is one woman to four men. - A tourist once hap...

"Nothing," groaned the sick man, "except a slice of that multi-million aire whose yacht was wrecked on "Cocoanut Reef." "Merciful powers!" the doctor cried. "And I told you under no circum stances to eat anything rich. George, get the saws and axes. We must operate at once."

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914
LADIES' LETTER. The social air is. thick with rumors of matrimonial events to be announc ed at a future date, the most import ant of which will be given out very shortly, between a pair who are in the very forefront of local society, even as their parents were before them. The* girl, who is moneyed and very smart, is the youngest of a large family; the rumored fiance is the son of a former politician. Rela tives of the happy pair are said to be duly enthusiastic about the prospec tive union of these two, which pro mises to be an ideal one in everyway. So they will have their work cut out in answering letters of congratulation, which will simply rain in on them | when the. rumor is confirmed. The proverbial little bird also whis pers of an engagement, news of which is said to have been wafted across seas. The lady in the case is the eldest of a group of pretty sisters. She is at present visiting the old world with her mother. The man, who is a son of one of our late min ing magnates,...
MEASURING THE RAINFALL. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914
Measuring the Rainfall. The quantity of rain falling at any place is estimated by a'very simple piece of apparatus known as a rain-gauge. The most common form of rain gauge consists of a copper funnel, the area of the mouth of which is accurately known. The rain collected in this funnel flows into a graduated mea sure, which can be very easily con structed by anyone put of a small glass tumbler by pasting on its side a strip of paper, carefully marked off into inches half-inches, i quarters, eighths, and sixteenths, or into inches, tenths and twentieths. Supposing that the area of the | mouth of the of the receiving funnel is five times that of the graduated msasure, then a depth of five inches in the measure would represent a depth, 'of one inch on an area equal to th'at of the aperture of the funnel.

When the charge was proved, Harriet said:—"I think perphaps , it would be a good thing if three ' 9 citizens were told off to scrub 's mouth with a nail brush and soap, and then probably His molith will not be guiity of such aii offence again." The citizens were delighted with the proposition, aud the sen tence was inflicted. . It is stated that the boy has n...
