Summer Drinks. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

Summer Drinks. No one should drink more than " three pints of any liquid m one day. N'ot only this, but Che amount should be taken in small quantities at a time, as very much greater satisfaction is thereby obtained. One of. the most cooling drinks to take is cold, weak tea, but very little or no sugar. Lemonade and limejiiice are also excellent and harmless Summer beverages. Here is a good recipe for making home-made lemonade. Put' the thin rmd of four lemons and 31b of white loaf sugar into a quart of boiling water. When the mixture is quite cool, and the sugar is all dissolved,, add the juice of the lemons and 2 ox of tartaric acid. Then strain and boctle for use. To make a nice strong drink, take a quarter of the lemonade to three quarters of water. You will find that this will make a most cooling and refreshing drink. One of the best drinks to give children during- the Summer months is plain.barley water, but unfortu I iiately J:hey do not always take kindly to this on account ...

MYRTLEFORD ASSOCIATION. WHOROurA' v. Bu.ffako jive*. The match between these' teams on Whorouly ground on Saturday resulted in an easy win for the home.team.

SOROSES LIQUID FACE POWDER In these days of out-door iife—motoring, golfing, boating, etc,—a reliable and harm less liquid powder is one of the necessities of life. Soroses Liquid Face Powder is found by experts to be a perfectly invalu able preparation and a decided improve ment on the old-fashioned dry powder. Besides improving the appearance it acts as a shield to the delicate skin of the face against hot winds, dust, smuts, and other extraneous matter. Price 2/6. Obtainable at Miss E. Connelly's, Myrtleford. Mr A. S. Hobbs, brother of Mr J. Hobbs, of Yackandandah, died in New Zealand a few weeks back aged S2. He was at one time owner of' Dederang run. but sold out some 35 years ago and settled in New Zea land. The train, as usual, crawled along—you know the line—and then stopped dead.

Obituary.           MRS MULLER, SENR.     Death has removed another of the early settlers of the district in the person of Alice Jane Muller, wife of Mr Carl Adolph Frederick Muller, of Ovens Vale. Mrs Muller, who had reached the age of 74 years, had been in failing health for some years, and for the last few months she had been practically an invalid. However, on Sunday morning she appeared to be, if anything, a little better, and when her son Alex and his wife were with her, she par- took of a cup of tea, which she apparently enjoyed. A few minutes afterwards she   took a suddon seizure and passed away in her son's' arms. Not withstanding that it   might be said not to be unexpected, the     sudden end came as a great shock to her   relatives and friends, by whom she was highly respected. The late Mrs Muller was a native of Ire...

Bush Fires. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

Bush Fires.   The fire which started at Slaughteryard Creek on Wednesday of last week, assumed somewhat serious proportions on Saturday   and Sunday. Fanned by a fair south-west wind it travelled through parts of Merri- ang and on towards Whorouly' Creek.   The properties of Messrs Matheson, Payne, and others was threatened, the   face of the fire extending for miles. Bands of firefighters from Whorouly and   neighborhood had a hard battle, but the wind changing danger in that direction was averted. Merriang, however, was again threatened. On Saturday afternoon and night numerous volunteers went out   from Myrtleford to lend a hand to stay the   progress of the devastating element, and after some hard battling it was got well     under control. The rain on Sunday night and again on Monday came as a welcome interposition of Providence, and allayed all anxiety as to any...

Mortality among Fish. i ' Rksults of Bush Fires. i Extraordinary mortality among the fish in .the Upper Buffalo is re ported. It will be remembered that the country about Dandongadale was swept by bush fires recently, and on Sunday week heavy rain oc curred, which had the effect of ex- i tinguishing the fires. The torrents of rain running down the hillside washed the»ashes and debris from the fires into the Buffalo River, the beautiful clear stream being con verted into a flood of water almost as black as ink. Hundreds of fish,, principally perch and cod, but also a few trout,, ranging in weight from j4lb to 201bs, were afterwarHs found dead. Mr Mitchell, above Flet cher's crossing, took out a large ; number and buried them, and hun dreds were found right down the Buffalo River from the Junction of Rose River to Nug-Nug Corner. Lobsters were also found, crawling out of the river and dying on the high ground. Dynamiting being suspected as the cause of mortality, Mr W. Mummer}r, assis...
