A Snake Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
A Snake Adventure. ' . Mr Percy Barlow, who resides in Myrtle-street, had a somewhat un pleasant experience with a snake on Saturday afternoon. It seems that a bucket had been allowed to drop down a well in the yard, and in or der to secure it Mr Barlow slid down the pipe of a pump which is not being used. When he reached the bottom of the well, he heard a noise, and was startled to find him self confronted with a snake, which had its fangs projected, and was 011 the brick wall, close alongside the pipe down which Mr Barlow had just come. Calling to one of the children, who was at the top of the well, to tell Mrs Br.rlow to bring his rifle, .'Mr Barlow kept a watchful eye on tbe snake. Mrs Barlow promply lowered the Winchester and two or three. cartridges, and Mr Barlow loading the weapon fired, blowing his snakeship's head off. The reptile, which was a tiger about 3ft 6in long, tfas sent to the surface in the bucket, vvhich was landed by Mrs Barlow. Mr Barlow then rsgained the surf...

Protection against Erosion; " At the meeting of Beechworth Shire Council on Friday, Cr Fergur sou introduced a deputation, con sisting of Messrs Kubeboueand Rae, who requested that the work to pro tect their land against further ero sion by the river, for which the,. Government--had granted ^50 upon condition that the work was done by the council, be proceeded with. Mr Kneebone thought £50 would be a; benefit to them, although the Government engineer thought about ^800 was required. • The engineer declined to under-. take this work, as ^50 expended "there..would be useless. ,£800 would be required , to make a permanent job of it in his and Mr Kermode's opinion: r ,, ; Cr Hodge supported the engineer's ; attitude, Cr Phillips thought the ^50 should be spent there if Messrs Kueebone and Rae considered it an advan tage^ ; \ Cr T.

Open-air Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
-air Concert. It is about two years since the Presbyterian Church at Myrtleford held an entertainment in aid of the funds, and it is therefore hoped the public will liberally support the open-air concert on Saturday even ing next in the church grounds. Arrangements for the function arie now completed, and an excellent programme of songs, quartettes, etc., by local artists and by friends from Bright and other places has -been arranged. One of the princi pal attractions will be Professor Skysos, the Egyptian magician and juggler, who wili give demonstra tions of his art during the evening, and we believe some of his feats are very clever. Refreshments will be on sale, as also produce, confection ery, etc. The admission is only 6d, and we feel confident those who at tend will spend a pleasant evening.

THEATRE CRISIS COUNTER ATTRACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
THEATRE CRISIS COUNTER ATTRACTION. The theatres r of Paris. are,;,, ap pears,. in' a very parlous rway Uoys .the* Paris correspondent of "The Daily- :. Telegraph" on December 16). The cinema, the music-hall, and now,-last but not least, the tango, have hit them very hard in that vulnerable point, the box-office. In "The Gil Bias" this morning- a wail of humorous distress is raised by M. Gabriel Astruc, who is fully quali fied to speak as founder and director, of that grandiose enterprise, the Theatre des Champs Elysees,. which closed its doors a week or two ago after five months' existence. The question of why his'own en terprise has foundergd, and so many others are perilously near the rocks, M. Astruc answers by the following anecdote:— One evening about six o'clock I met one of my friends, a grave; and re verend signor. I suggested that we should- make a little fooling—-entente* cordiale English for "Go for a. consti- • tutional"—till dinnertime. "Impossible," he replied with dec...

Disastrous Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
Disastrous Fire. A bush fire at Swift's Creek swept down the hill on Friday night and set fire to the buildings at the Homeward Bound mine at Rocky Point, Hurdle Flat, near Beech worth. The battery house, eiieine house. assav house. cvanide office and stables., were destroyed, but the-..manager's house escaped. Some of the burning timber fell down the shaft and set it alight, and it was pouring forth flames like a volcano on Tuesday. Over ^1000 worth of damage was done in a'few hours, aud the splendid mill, which was capable of putting through 700 or 800 tons of stone per month, is a complete wreck. , Work at the mine had been sus pended for some time, and owing , to the great damage done it is thought probable operations may never be resumed. It is reported that the fire insurance policy lapsed on 31st Jan., and negotiations were in progress for a new policy. The plant had been insured constantly 1 for the previous 40 years.

FICKLE SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
FICKLE SEASON The continued sociability of the sun, when he really -ought- to be thinking about going—for it Js getting late—is ..beginning to make people nervous, in spite of their employment. They like his company, of course; but~why is he so remarkably friendly? What does his summer warmth in November por tend? . Certainly the vendors of winter blan kets, furs, and xjverc'oats are' beginning to look these gift rays in the mouth, so to speak. "Nobody," said a London tailor to a "Daily News" visitor on No vember 29, "is having overcoats made. My stock of heavy stuff is practically dead." . The tailor's countenance was the only •sign of November seen yesterday. He 'was beginning, quite thoughtlessly, to wipe the heat from his brow, but quick ly desisted when he saw an overcoat less man begin to look at his show of gloomy tweeds. Already some big dra pers are inviting the suburbs, by cir cular, to ignore the sun, by glancing at winter goods at reduced prices. The reduced prices may l...
WIFE'S COWBOY LOVER HUSBAND TOO MUCH OF GENTLEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
WIFE'S COWBOY LOVER 'HUSBAND TOO MUCH OF GENTLEMAN. The love of a highly cultured New York woman for an uncouth, illiterate ranchman was disclosed in the Su preme Court to-day (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Mail" of November 25) when a divorce was granted to Mr Charles Dwight Folsom, a well-known. lawyer,- on the strength of a letter addressed to him by- his wife, who wrote from a small town in North California: "You were too much of a gentleman. Brutality is necessary for my control; this man has it." Mrs Folsom's amazing letter de scriSes in great detail and with fine literary skill her meeting, with the man whom she calls her "natural mate." "'He sought me out," she says, "because of a chance word of mine he heard in the street. He was kinder to me than anyone else has ever been. I did not love him at first, and was merely happy and contented with him. He took me long drives. He loves horses as much as I do. In fact, he knows nothing but horses. His whole life has...
WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS There is a common fallacy in the public mind that the bank clerk has a s°\tJ0Vand an tim« (says "One mE ,"Tha Daily Express").. ■the tradition is that he wears a morning coat and top hat, travels _ first, leisurely strolls into the pala tial portals of his business abode about 10 . a.m., and leaves at 4 sharp. It will doubtless take time to eradicate this traditional figure from the public mind and put in its place the bank clerk as v. rea*ly is—a hard-worked toiler, whose hours are long, and whose pay is generally quite Inadequate to keep up the respectability expected of him. i, ™us£ be remembered that the small percentage of managerships and higher appointments are reserved, in most cases, for those who have friends, at court the court of directors. The ordinary young man, upon entering the service of a bank, can only look for ward to at least 40 years' hard labor. If he should reach the age of 65 he may^ be permitted to retire up...
HUMANE CONSTABLE TOOK STRICKEN WOMAN TO HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 February 1914
HUMANE CONSTABLE TOOK STRICKEN WOMAN TO HOSPITAL. Police-Constable 702 A was warmly complimented by coroner and jury at Chelsea on Saturday for his considera tion and humaneness in taking a suf fering woman to Westminster Hospital instead of straight to 'the police-station (says "Lloyd's Weekly" on December !2). The inquiry concerned the death of Mrs Esther Gardiner, of Commercial road, Pimlico, the middle-aged wife of a porter at Buckingham Palace. The officer' said he saw the woman lying on the footpath in Willow street, West minster, looking ill. He took her on an ambulance to Westminster Hospital, where she was examined by a doctor, who stated that she was the worse for drink. He, therefore, had to remove her to the infirmary. James Gardiner, the husband, said it was arranged that his wife should meet him on the previous Tuesday evening, but she failed to do so. Nor did she return home. Hearing what had hap pened he went to the infirmary, and found her there unconscious. She die...
