A GIRL BOY. EFFIE FELLOWS' EXPLOITS LIFT-BOY, SHOPMAN, SINGER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

"a girl boy. EFFIE FELLOWS' EXPLOITS1* LIFT-BOY, SHOPMAN, SINGER. Possessed of the spirit of adventure^ and an idea to impose upon the credi bility of the world, Miss Effie Fellows* a well-known resident of Perth, de cided to masquerade as a man. The blood of the mummer must have been' running deep in the veins of Miss Fel lows, for her subsequent disguise, and! her perfect imitation of a raw boy, deceived ever her most intimate' friends. She told her people that she waa about to take a holiday in Melbourne, and she accepted a position as lift boy at the Palace Hotel, Perth. Here c her portrayal of the imp who jerks the lift up and down to the terror of the passengers was so perfect that not even her fellow employes suspected for a minute that the nice-looking, clear-skinned lad was a girl. The only occasion in which she lost her wit was when she discovered a half-sovereign in the smoking room of that-hotel. She handed it over to the proprietor, Mr. J. T. Glowery, who handed the "bo...

W^OROULY LIBRARY .BALL. The many pleasant recollections that are associated- with the Wborouly an nual Library ball- were revived on Wed nesday evening when the celebration of the popular function recurred. Never, since its initiation has the ball been held under more favourable cir cumstances and perhaps it was never such a success. The' pleasant sociabil ity tliat always exists amongst the patrons and the generous hospitality iil' the promoters have established- the ball amongst the most popular func tions of the district, and the wide spread interest taken in it is a compli ment" to the successful efforts of th® promoters in. the-entertainment of their guests.

Geese with Shoes On. ROUGH ROADS MAKE THEM FOOTSORE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

Geese with Shoes On. ROUGH ROADS MAKE THEM FOOTSORE. The largest goose dealer in the world is William H. Firke, of Mans field, Illinois. Late in the summer of each year Mr. Firke's buyer spends several months in the hills of Ken tucky and Tennessee, where goose raising is an important industry. There the geese are purchased, some here, some there, but scarcely ever in lots of more than a hundred. Some times the geese are assembled in places remote from a railroad, and must be driven miles before they can be loaded. The driving is compara tively easy, but before the long march over the rough and rugged road is started, the geese must be shod. Rough roads will make even a goose foot sore. Shoeing geese is a simple mat ter to the goose-raiser. The birds are driven over soft tar or pitch, and then on to beds of fine sand. The sand and tar form a soothing mixture, which affords great protection to the feet on the long marches.

TRUSTS THE REPORTERS. THEODORE ROOSEVELT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

TRUSTS THE REPORTERS. THEODORE ROOSEVELT. The little Napoleons of Australian politics might do worse than pattern themselves upon Mr. Theodore Roose velt, ex-President and President-De signate of the United States of America, who reached London on Saturday morning, in a battered Pana ma hat and a travel-strained tweed suit. Every newspaper of any import ance in the United Kingdom wished to interview Mr. Roosevelt, and Mr. Roosevelt wanted to be interviewed. The Australian politician, in similar circumstances, would either have shut himself up and coyly have issued a statement or have pretended to be too busy to receive journalists. What Mr. Roosevelt did was to hold a general reception of press men the minute he had removed the stains of travel from his face and hands. Along with a small army of pressmen, writes the London representative of the. "Sun," I was ushered into his presence at the house of his friend, Mr. Arthur Lee. For the American journalists whom he knew there was a he...

REMARKABLE TWINS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

REMARKABLE TWINS. - Twins 60 alike as to be interchange able are met with frequently in fic tion, but seldom in real life. The Brothers Chanteau,the French carica turists, are, however, alike in the smallest details, and their resemblance has often given rise to amusing con fusion. Their artistic studies in Paris were interrupted by the call of compulsory military service. The two brothers went to draw lots, and fate not being able to arrange that they should draw the same number, by an extraordinary coincidence made them draw the two consecutive numbers, 86 and 87. Gabriel only, however, had to undergo his term of service, and went to join his regiment at Angiers. But the inseparable twins were not to be divided. Alphonse, in civilian kit, followed" in the footsteps of his soldier brother, and many were the imbroglios that resulted. Gabriel was threatened with four days 'C.B.,' as English sol liers term it, because an officer had caught him out in plain clothes; need less to say, h...

Kangaroos on the Upper Buffalo. MENACE TO SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 13 August 1914

. ■ ■ i uiiganwM Kangaroos on the Upper Buffalo. Menace to Settlers. Numerous complaints still come to hand from the Upper Buffalo as to the damage causeu by kangaroos. The animals are in hundreds and are increasing steadily in. numbers, and the outcome vyill be it ha I in many cases settlers will have to , abandon their holdings. The oac crops just now are suffering from" the depredation? of the long tailt, "one farmer: stating that. at least a third of his crop has been eaten right, off. The " concession'" granted by the Department is ridiculed, and it cer tainly does seem absurd that after / 'losing their crops ana spending time ' and money in destroying the num ber of animals which it has been graciously conceded they ma}' do, settlers should have to let the Go vernment take the skins,, which must be delivered to the police sta-. tioh at Myrtleford, a long day's journey. There is a stipulation, too, we believe, that the animals. may only be destroyed within- a very short-distanc...
