A Dozy Fisherman. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

A Dozy Fisherman. On a recent afternoon a party of young; meti from Wangaraltn(says the " Chronicle") ':v ' :i to Laceby to do some fishing, rv/ery one set about his task of baiting up and throwiug in with celerity and brightness. Jne member of the party, Mr Chas. Cook, scrambled out on the limb of a fallen tree that afforded good fishing in mid-stream and he did well, landing a three pounder, followed by a two pound: cod. Then bites became fewer, and the fisherman lounging be tween a fork of the limb dozed ] off,. He was sleeping soundly wheu there was a great tug at his rod,' which he held securely in both, hands, and the next instant the other members of the party were' startled by a great splashing in the water; The sudden tug had caused Mr Cook to slip from his resting place into the river. His com panions ran to his assistance, but he managed to gain the bank in safety without their help. Having lost his rod and line, Mr Cook, robed in a rug, rested on the bank in the warm sun...

Robber's Ten Commandments. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

Robber's Ten Commandments. Old Bill Miner, known—one might, almost say esteemed—throughout the States as one of the most picturesque highwaymen of the last half-century, has died in Georgia State Prison Farm, near Milledgeville. It was his,, boast, the New York cor respondent of the "Telegraph" says, that throughout his long spectacular career he never did a "really dishonor able thing"—that is to say, dishonor able according to the strange code of the outlaws with whom for over fifty . years he had been intimately associ ated in the Far West. He specialised.. on express trains, holding .them up at times single-handed. Among the ten commandment's he obeyed was one which said: "Never take - what belongs to another man; rob only corporations." Others were: "Never' fail to help a woman"; "Keep ■ every man's goodwill, and'give a fellow mon ey when he needs it"; "Never say a bad thing about a man when you can,.,1 . say a good one"; "Don't squeal." He devoted half his time to robbing and ...

Home-loving Celebrities. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

Home46tfirig Celebrities. It is a popular belief that genius can only develop in "selfish solitude/' A study, of the lives of some of pur great est writers and thinkers, however, re veals the fact that much of their best work was done after marriage,' when they enjoyed the companionship of wives and children. .Charles Ivingsley, - for instance, had an ideal home, and was never happier than when playing with his children. He gave tlierii ,the best of everything, the • largest and sunniest rooms in the house, and the best part of the garden as a iplay-; ground. He was passionately devoted, to children, and their griefs made liini sad. "A child weeping over a broken toy," he wrot-9, "is a sight"; J cannot1 bear."

MR STANLEY HOUGHTON LANCASHIRE PLAYWRIGHT DIES. Death has put an end at the tragically early age of 32 to the career of one of .... —brightest and most capable of the v. younger British dramatists. Mr Stanley Houghton, author of ''Hindle Wak.es"; and "The Younger Generation," died yesterday morning . at his home in Manchester, after seve ral months of ill-health (says "The Daily Express" of December 12). He was ' operated on for appendicitis in * July,'' arid following thereon further serious internal complications develop ed. . Mr Houghton was one of the Man chester school of dramatists, of whom it has ' been said that they saw modern drama as "gloom with a Lan cashire accent." 1 He had none of the proverbial "eai'ly ill-luck of the dramatist. His first one act play was accepted at once for pro duction by. Miss Horniman, and two four-act plays which-followed were also' accepted without hesitation by the same astute manager.

IRRIGATION PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

IRRIGATION PRACTICE. To secure a proper amount of water in the subsoil, so that plants can use it by capillary action, should be aimed at by the irrigation farmer. The sub soil is the reservoir. A few light show ers of rain on a grain crop is not much vse. When there is Inoisture in the second or third. feet of soil, a small irrigation puts the soil in splendid con dition. The" flooding system of irrigation is the only practical one for such/crops as lucerne and grain crops, which, it may be said, cover the whole of the ground. Orchards, vineyards, vegetables, or any crops planted in rows are irrigated by means of .furrows. The application of the water in this manner may not be found so difficult as that of flooding, but there are many features in irriga ting by furrows which require care and close attention 011 the part of the irri gator to secure tli/ best results, or. in fact, to obviate doing positive harm to fruit trees or other crops coming within the operation. Many experimen...

How Animals Bear Pain. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

How Animals Bear Pain. One of the most pathetic things is the manner in which the animal kingdom endures suffering. Take horses, for in stance, in battle. After the first shock of a wound they make no sound. They bear the pain with a mute, -wondering endurance, and if at night you hear a ! wild groan from the battle-field it comes from their loneliness. The dog will carry a broken leg for days wistfully, but uncomplainingly. The cat, stricken with stick or stone, or caught in some trap from 'which it knows its way to freedom, crawls to some secret place and bears in silence pain which we could not endure. Sheep and cattle meet the thrust of the butcher's knife without a sound, and even common poultry endure in tense agony without complaint. The dove, shot unto death, flies to some far-off bough, and as it dies the silence is unbroken save for_tlie patter 011 the leaves of its own life-lilood. The wounded deer speeds to some thick brake, and in pitiful submission waits for death. • T...

EVERYTHING MARKED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

EVERYTHING MARKED. All linens are marked with the ini tials or monogram of their owner to day. Every hostess is careful to see that her table linens and towels come in for particular attention. The hand towels are embroidered with more or less elaborateness. On guest towels two-inch letters are embroidered to match trie other embroidery. On larger towels three-inch letters are in good taste. Turkish towels are all lettered now. .Some of them have the monogram or initial wo/en with the fabric. In oth ers the initials are embroidered in color t-o match the bars that form the bor der, on a small circle of linen. This is inset in one end of the towel. Still others are marked in cross-stitch of big French knots of colored cotton. Face cloths are embroidered to match the towels.

A FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

A FRIEND. A friend-is a person who is "for you" always, under any suspicions. He nev r investigates you. When charges are made against you he does not ask proof. He asks the accuser to clear out. He likes you just as you are. He does not want to alter you. •Whatever kind of coat you are wear ing suits him. Whether you have on a dress suit or a hickory shirt with no col lar, he thinks it's fine. He likes your moods and enjoys your pessimism as much as your optimism. He likes your success. And your fail ure endears you to him the more. He is better than a lover because he is never jealous. He -wants nothing from you, except thta you be yourself. He is the one being with whom you can feel safe. With him you can utter your heart, its badness and its good ness. You don't have to be careful. In his presence you can be indis creet, which means you can rest. There are many faithful wives and husbands; there are few ftrithful frienda. The highest known form of friend ship is that of the dog ...

A Wheat Pest. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

A Wheat Pest, Not a few of the farmers iu East ern Riverina are inclined to ascribe the absence of grain from a great deal of the heads of wheat this season to the presence of a micros copic fly, which wa„ notiped to be very prevalent in October and part of November. This fly, at about that time, was extremely active in. kitchen gardens. In many cases it attacked beans, peas, lettuce, and other plants with deadly effect. The fly is much smaller than the Rutherglen fly, and may escape notice, exceptingwhen the sunlight is on it. At the time'it was attack ing gardens, the tiny insect was noticed to be always hovering about the wheat, just when it Was flower ing. For some reason, which has not been clearly defined, farmers found, when harvesting, that many of the heads which seemed to lie fully developed and well grown, ' contained no grain, excepting near the stalk. These flies were present: in myriads at flowering time, and some of the farmers have come to the conclusion that they we...

Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

Owens Vale. (From Our Correspondent.) . With the passage of time the gov erning laws of nature are forcibly ' impressed on one at a period-when death occurs. 'Tis then that one's intelligence bears lukewarm re semblance to all that is pure and instructive—an inspiring influence that sheits a ray of expectancy over all that is holy. These reflection? are prompted by the death of Mrs Muller, senr., which' occurred on Sunday last at "Riverside," at the ripe age of 74 years. It was a peaceful ending to a Jife which had been brimful of energy devoted principally to the rearing and cul ture of a family, and her devoted attachment to home affairs, and her womanly efforts in this direction are exemplified in her family of six sons now living. Dear are kind associa tions and dearer still are fond rela tives; ; consequently a mournful feeling overshadows the Valley as a result of the departure to the great majority of one whom we respected and admired.
