Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 February 1914

HELP THE OLD FOLKS. Be considerate of the aged. Lend them a helping hand. Make life easy for them. The infirmities of age are many. Most old people have a bad back. The kidneys are weak. Are worn out with years of work. Backache makes days of misery. Urinary trouble, nights of unrest. There is a ray of sunshine for the aged. Doau's Backache Kidney Pills will make life easier. They are doing so for old and young. People are learning this. Many are testifying to it. Read the following endorsement :— Mr Jas. Campbell, Bithop Street, Sey mour, says : —" For years I suffered with a weak, aching back. I had sharp, shoot iug pains in my back and I could not stoop or bend over. My secre ions were disordered, being thick and oloudy. I was really very ill, and nothing I used gave me any relief, when i fria = d advi-ed me to try Doau's Backache Kidney Pills. I did nor have much hope that they would do me good, but sent for a bottle to give them a trial. It was a lucky day for ma that I did get...

THE Muchison Advertiser PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 February 1914

THE [urr^isflix PUBLISHED BYKBT FRIDAY UORNINU FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 18 1914. At the last meeting of the Waranga Shire Council some remarks were made by Cr Furphy respecting the carrying out of a contract work on the road leading from the town of Rushworth to the park gates. Cr Furphy's contention was that the work had not been faith fully performed—in fact, that the grub bing had not been done in accordance with the specifications, which stipulated that everything should be grubbed out 12 inches deep. Further, that £5 or £6 extras had been allowed on the job, making over £11 in all, whereas the whole work, to his mind, was not worth £5. The charge was rather a serious one, yet not one word was said by other councillors—possibly, they were - too much engrossed with the tenders for electric lighting. To allow such a matter to pass is distinctly wrong from two points of view. Firstly, if the statements made were not correct then an injustice has been done the engineer (Mr Jones), who is so...

Drowning Tragedy. MOTHER AND SON DROWNED. A. man named Thomas Brown, who is stated to be a shearer's ouok, has been oamped on the Goulburn riverside, at Sheppartou, for some days ; and on Saturday morniDg last, about 7 o'clock, seeing that his wife was nob in the tent, went to the river, at sume little distance from the boa'sheds, and was horrified to find her body floating on the surface of the stream. Her name was Margaret Anastasia Brown, aged about 40. A son, named Frederick, 16 years of age (who had been employed at the Sheppartou Brewery), was also missing, and on Sun day morning, at about 10 a.m., a lad named Stevens noticed his body caught against a snag. The body was removed to the morgue at Mooroopua, where an iuquest was formally opened on Monday morning and then adjourned until Friday. To clear up any misgivings, however, the police telephoned to Detective Sullivan, of Benalla, who on Monday proceeded to make enquiries both at Sheppartou and Mooroopua. Although known as ...

NAGAMBIE V. MUROHISON. AN INTERESTING GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 February 1914

NAGAMBIE y. MUftOHISON. AN INTERESTING GAME. Teams representing fche Nagambie and Murchiaon cricket clubs met on the ground of tbe former on Saturday after noon last. The weather was aDyihiDg but suitable for cricket, a cold southerly breeae, aooumpauied by equally cold j showers of rain, blowing throughout tbe | day. Both clubs were well represented, although M'Donald (Na^ambie's cham pion trundler) was absenr. As is cus tomary, the visiting team batted first, and in doing so had much the worse of the deal, having to face the inclement weather at its worst stage. The opening batsmen all went cheaply, Dwyer being the only one to reach double figures. Heazle wood, who was indisposed and went in late, made things merry while he stayed at the wickets, sc-rin^ 28 in a few minu es. Ch»rlton also batted fr»ely, hiB 15 runs bei»g qu ckly compiled. None of the otbetba'-m n could do much «ith the bowling of Brown and Griffith, and the Murohii-on inniogs closed "for 60 When the home te-m c -m...

Opening of the Duck Season. SLAUGHTER BY MOONLIGHT. The opening of the duck season took place ou Wednesday when a very laree number of distiict sports, together with v.sitors from': the surruuudiug towns, assembled at the different wild-fowl re sorts iu the hope of getting some good spurt. As usual, mauy people went out the night before and camped, while others were content to journey out dmingthe night or in the early hours. The most popular places in this district were Lake Uo • per, the Cornelia Creek, Lake War anga, the Mosquito swamp, and the swamps on the old Stanhope estate. Ducks were very scarce at Lake Cooper and on the Cornelia creek, and dis appointment reigned m three quarters. The same cou.d be said of Stanhope. At Lake -varanga the birds were pretty numerous bub the difficulty at any-time on this Lake ia to get at them. As the bir '8 have had a pretty good schooling during the pasc week or so they were somewhat cautious, and the man who was wise en»ugh to dig a hole o...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. THE MURCHISON DISTRICT. AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 February 1914

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. THE MURCHISON DISTRICT. AN OPPORTUNITY" FOR ACTION. Soma eighteen months or two years back the residents of the Murchison dis trict were keen y interested in iha matter of closer settlement. At that time several suitable district properties were reported to be on the market, and, with the object of endeavoring to induce the Closer Settlement Board *to inspect, and, if possible, purchase these properties, a Closer Settlement League was formed in Murchison. Although the league dis played the greatest activity, and left no stoue unturned to bring tne properties above mentioned under the notice of the Board, their efforts proved of no avail, owing, we understand, to a difference over the question of price between the vendors and the board. This in itself is regret table, for had the Closer Settlement Board seen fit to acquire land in this district and settle farmers on that land uuder a system of intense culture, there can be no doubt that the town and dis trict of Mu...

The Balac[?]a Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 February 1914

£v, ~ life Mine. Su^uiiu^bf ftie Sol h January there ired a prospectuferor the forming ihmnftriviitd^Jiifork the Balaclava mine," yy litem i t might of a truth be Baid that, this mine is too well known to call for any special comment at our hands, and it has for very many years been the heartfelt desire of every one having mining interests at heart to see a good strong company formed with the object of testing the lower levels. The natural conclusion is that where such an amount of gold was won nearer the surface something good should b|e found in the deeper and more settled country. We firmly believe this to be a good prospecting venture provided attention is directed towards deeper sinking, but the talk about a powerful crushing plant and large bodies of ore on the surface, which can be put through at the rate of 3,000 tons a month, is so much moonshine and does not re flect creditably upon the sense or wisdom oE the many mining people who have at times resided in Whroo.
