BRIGHT ASSOCIATION. The match to decide the minor premiership, between Freeburghand Porepunkah, who were level on points for first place, eventuated on Saturday on Bright Oval, Both teams were strongly represented, •and a good game was anticipated, bul the uncertainty of cricket was again demonstrated by Freeburgh scoring,an easy victory, which places them in a very commanding posi tion as regards possession of the trophy presented by the Associa tion. Batting first, Freeburgh opened with Beckton and Metcalfe, and be fore the former was bowled he hit up 36. But the hero of the match was Bastow, whose score of 79 (not out) was extremely meritorious. J.

Diversion of Water in Ovens River. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

Diversion of Water in. Ovens River, | The Ovens river between the out I break of Molouey's Creek (on Ox ley Flats) and its return, about nine miles lower down, is at the present ■moment so narrow that a mail can step across without the least diffi culty. The weir and " straight cut " at Moloney's Creek have been very 'effective.so'.far as supplying water in Moloney's Greek is con cerned, -but silt has so accumulated, as the result of fallen trees and other causes, that the bed of the river below the weir is now higher than the entrance to Moloney's Creek. The consequence is, of course, that the crpek receives practically all the water. An affected landowner suggests the con struction of a weir to force the water along the straight cut at I Moloney's Creek. At last meeting of Oxley Shire Council the tender of H. Dalton at ^46 was accepted for certain improvements designed by Mr W. H. Scott, C.E., to effect a remedy at small cost, and it is hoped that these will prove effective. Pre -...

News." The document impresses upon all who sym pathise with the cause of temperance the vital importance of straightway u^ing every scrap of influence they possess to bring Taome to Parliament and to the Government the intensity of the demand for reform legislation. "'•There is danger," proceeds the mani festo, "lest because, we. have been pa tient we should be supposed to be in different as to when the Government will proceed to fulfil the reiterated j -pledges upon this question.

The Half Holiday. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

The Half Holiday. To fchs Editor. Sir,—Outro—very outre—is the term best applied to the references recently made in the " Ataiil " re the above. X can not seriously accept the statement of a critic who would suggest any day in the ■week other than Saturday as boat suited to merit the g'ood graces of the sporting fra ternity and others of that ilk while he cravea an indulgence ta be waited on hand and foot on the Saturday afternoon. A-nd I really do confess that it would necessit ate a vast amount of hard thinking to thrash that particular phase of the subject to the bedrock of reason. 'Another critic endeavors to spread oil ou troubled waters,51 and says the storekeepers of Myrtleford run vans to the outlying parts, and by this meaus he opines that no in convenience should be occasioned to hinder the pleasure and comfort of the farmer and his family or those in his employ. By this, : am I to conclude that the storekeepers lodge a prior claim to most advantageously pro mote the progr...

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

ARMS BY STEALTH CUSTOMS EVADED. The arming of Ulster has been going on quietly for the last five years. At first the rifles purchased were part of a large number originally made for the Italian Army, but never actually put into service owing to the decision to adopt an improved type. These •Italian rifles (writes Mr It. Montague Smith in "The Daily Mail" of Decem ber 6), of which about 25,000 .were purchased for Ulster, are riot so pre cise as the modern service w:eapou, being long in the barrel, with an un usually large bore and a high trajec tory. Nevertheless they are very deadly weapons, shooting accurately at a distance of 1500 yards. Each rifle has a clip holding five cartridges. These rifles were bought in Ham burg, and shipped from there to Dun dee, Leith, Newcastle, and "West. Hartlepool. At one or other of those ports they were transhipped to. a boat bound for Belfast, often consigned as hardware, electrical equipment, or even pianos. These operations were carried out with...
