NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. The "Death of Nelson is a scene well known to all—the dimly-lighted cock pit, the dying hero, and Captain Har dy listening to his Admiral's last or ders. On the other side is it-stooping figure in black, less familiar, yet equally cherished by the great sailor—■■ Dr. Scott, his secretary and chaplain. A fen* years ago, some of the oldest inhabitants of Southminster (Essex) could still remember the "owd parson," j and whose "Nelson relics" may still be seen in the church vestry. Dr. Scott was a man of the world, intelligent, tactful, and a wonderful linguist, who | had spent half his life afloat, and was highly esteemed by the Admiral. One of Nelson's theories was that every scrap of paper was worthy of study, that no mdn* put pen to paper without betraying something of his real knowledge or real intentions. He would thus keep Scott in the cabin of the Vic tory reading foreign gazettes, newspap ers, letters, and despatches in every lan guage till exhausted nature c...

Concerning Bowling Averages [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

Concerning' Bowling: Averages In bowling, manifestly it is not necessar ily the bowler who has secured the leading average who has benefitted his side the; most. For instance, it is palpable to everyone that a bowler who obtains the wickets of a couple of the best batsmen in a team, even though these trundlevs cap ture no other wickets, and are even lowest in the bowling averages of thtse individual matches, have done service to their side that mere figures do not disclose. Quality as well as quantity must be taken into Ac count if any estimate of a bowler's worth is to be made. ft may not be generally realised that it is quite possible—it has actually occurred in big cricket—for a bowler to obtain the best average in both innings and yet lose tha average for the match. Take a sup positious case :—A obtains in the first in- - nings 7 wickets for 91 (aver. 13) ; B se cures 2 for 30 (aver. 15) '; in the second in nings A captures -4 for for 30 (aver. 7.5), and B, tj for 4S (aver.

Rabbit Destruction. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

Rabbit Destruction. . According to a Wagga correspon dent, a new way of dealing with the rabbit pest,has been discovered by Mr W. Patterson, of Harefield, near Wagga. Mr Patterson has . tried every known method, none of which he says is so effective as the plan he has discovered. The idea is sim ple and consists of taking attraction engine into the paddc ck, putting the steam pipe into one. of the burrows as far as it will reach, covering the pipe over with clay to prevent the steam from blowing out, and then letting the steam on lightly for . a while to discover all the outlets, After this close all the openings shown by escaping steam, and then turn on the steam with full force. It is claimed ; that by this means every rabbit in the burrow is killed in five minutes.

Ovens Vale. (From Our Correspondent.) The local school reopened on Tuesday, 27th uit , after a five week's vacation. Miss Campbell, the mistress, has returned reuewed in health and spirits, and resolved to put forth even a greater effort than in 1913 for the benefit of her pupils. She enjoyed immensely the happy re-union with friends across the briny. Mrs Maguire did not return with Miss Campbell, having decided to prolong her slay for a month or two. The railway employees who " do tke length" between Myr.tleford and Eurobiu have during the past week been most persistent in a desire to burn off the grass within the ap proach of the railway line. Were anything like the same desire evinced for the extinction of St. . John's Wort, the appreciation of re sidents en route would be readily forthcoming. As it is, they look on weary-eyed, and painfully regret the inability of the Department to cope with the spread of the obnoxi ous wee'd in its own territory before inflicting uudue hardship...

Rand Labor Leaders De ported. Tkn Shippkd to England. Press-'c r iticism • The South African Union Gov ernment has deported to England ten of the principal leaders in the late general strike. The party was taken with the greatest secrecy, under a strong es cort, from the Transvaal and through Natal, ' 'and was put aboard a steamer at Durban which was wait ing, and which had been ordered to sail before dawn. Measures will be taken to prevent the return of the deported men to South Africa. The London " Daily New?" says—'■■■The deportations constitute a plain declaration of war upon all Laboi organisation. The . action proclaims that the workman, in at tempting to improve his economic position, puts himself outside, the shelter of the law. Workers bred under British traditions cannot sit. tamely under such a system." The " Daily, Chronicle" observes —"The deportations represent a grievous blunder. For every man deported, a dozen will arise. Gene rals Botha and Smuts are affronting Libe...
