,ovens Association . MYRTl«i5fokd V. muDGEGONGA., The second match between: these teams in the premiership competi tion of the above Association was played on Saturday on Myrtleford ground in beautifully fine weather and the ground in splendid order. There was a very fair attendance of spectators, many of whom' expressed dissatisfaction at the delay in start* ing play, for it was not till a quarter tp four that the ball was bounced. This delay was due to the non arrival till that time of a motor which brought several players for Mudgegonga from Yackandandah; Myrtleford took command on the bouncing of the ball, and Clancy gave Quinlivan a cnance to score, yvhich was without result. Almost' immediately afterwards, Jack Hod gens passed to Clancy, who had a try, which was accountable for a behind, and Jack Hodgens followed "with a second minor and Quinlivan with a third. The play was all about the visitors' goal, and Harmes being awarded a free kick at an angle just managed to pilot the...

Labor Legerdemain. - To the Editor. Sir,—Most of us have seen the conjuror whoiputs an egg shell into a hat, cries "Heigh ! Ho ! Presto!" makes a few passes with his wand and placing the hat on a table draws out a hen and'chickens. " It is some-: thing of this s;ort which Labbr as; sures Australia it is about to do. The electors have merely to provide the egg shell, in the shape of their votes, and straightway Labor will gtve them short hours, a slack stroke, high wages, pensions, boun ties, incomes for widows and or phans, swift steamars run at nomi nal rates, a glorious navy—in brief* all for which they cau sigh. As to cost, the, voters have merely to put all thought of that aside till after the election. — It is little wonder that having convinced themselves that they can do all this, Mr Fisher and his col leagues are convincing the simpler of the folk who-crowd to their meet ings.

During I the last fevt months Porepunkah has | lost several prominent townsmen, but none will be more seriously missed than Mr Solly. He has not been a bird of passage', and for many years has devoted a good deal of his life to. public work and even before the.prosperity of place owing to the influx of dredging, Mr Solly was a hard working member of the few committees that existed in those days. He was one of those big hfearted residents who was always there to put his shoulder tc the wheel. His commanding figure will be missed in all local sporting circles. There is a strong branch of the P.Iy.C. here and as secretary Mr Solly has been the lock, stock ' and barrel, and has shown what a good secretary can do.

LADIES' LETTER. 3" . . »' Hi ,j ' From "Irene" in Melbourne. • , The debutante set craze is still with j x • us. It has afflicted Melbourne ever; i . , , eince Lady Madden had her happy— or unhappy—idea of suggesting the scheme, and that the debutantes should be presented to the Acting Governor and herself afterwards. This ' ' was many years ago, when Sir John , was Acting-Governor, and had taken up his residence at Government House, it was at a big and notable ball they gave, and the idea of the debutante set was hailed as a charming notion. But since then it has been often re garded as anything the reverse, as it , has spread to every suburban dance, and has meant wasted time, and of ten that the other dancers have been.! kept standing about in the cold for from half-an-hour to nearly an hour. It has involved many a maiden in un due expenditure. Silly trains as well as bouquets have been made a sine qua non of her debut, when other - ' wise she would have made her modest bow in a ...

CLEOPATRA AND THE CROCODILES. TERRORS OF THE "MOVIES." [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

CLEOPATRA AND THE CROCODILES. TERRORS OF THE "MOVIES." The famous actress who plays the part of Cleopatra in the historical film tragedy, "Antony and Cleopatra," came within an inch of losing her life when the picture was being produced, and she has made up her mind that if ever she is asked to take part in any other film in which some of her fel low-actors are crocodiles, she will have them either chained up or behind iron bars. The accident happened in this way: In one of the scenes a slave girl who has incurred the furious jealousy of the beautiful queen, is first stripped and flogged by Cleopatra's orders, and is then thrown into a pool in which there are a number of gruesome look ing crocodiles. In order to add to the realism of the scene, several real crocodiles, of huge size, were borrow ed from the Rome Zoo, and confined in a tank let into the floor of a part of Cleopatra's Palace. The slave girl is dragged by attendants to the edge of the pool, and then hurled into the mids...
