VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN TO FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

VOLUNTARY INSURANCE GAIN . TO FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. If the compulsory Insurance Act had no other defects, the multiplicity of cooks would probably spoil the insur ance broth. Tihe officials of friendly societies who have for years past car ried on their quiet but magnificent work have now to be in constant touch with a number of committees,' referees, audi tors, and inspectors, - while the Insur ance Commissioners are always hover ing1 in the background armed with a spoonful of new regulations, special or ders or provisional special' orders, to stir into the refreshing decoction. This multiplication of authorities is not only costly to an absurd degree, btit it will restrict the free development of the mutual benefit societies to a very serious extent. No movements in his tory have been more spontaneous, more true to national tradition, and less ham pered by official interference than the friendly society and trade union move ments in this country. They were in spired by the foresight...

PRIZE ESSAYS TEN GREATEST INVENTIONS. The "Scientific American" offered , prizes for the three best essays on the 10 greatest patentable inventions of the past 25 years. Ncj two competitors selected the j same inventions. In fact, only [One invention, that of wireless tele graphy, was conceded unanimously to belong- to the group of the 10 greatest. The vote on aeroplanes was almost unanimous. But beyond that there was no unanimity. The conditions of the contest stated that greatness would be measured in terms of practical success and general usefulness to mankind; the competi tors were limited to machines, de vices and discoveries commercially in troduced in the last 25 years, and special emphasis was laid on the fact that the inventions must be pat entable, although not necessarily patented. "The following 12 inventions secured the highest number of votes, the num ber printed after each representing a percentage of the votes given:—Wire less telegraphy, 97; aeroplane, 75; X rg,y ma...

Value of Dredging Land. Speaking at a meeting in Wau garatta, at which a deputation was appointed to wait on the Minister to urge the putting into force the re commendations of the Dredging Board, Mr Hughes said that the Confidence Dredging Co had worked out its lease, and had , purcha?ed from Mr Morse, at Eurobin, 20 acres of rich agricultural land at a cost of ,£24 an acre. It was now dredging away this great asset, and had already sent away about four acres of it. The company could not dredge it under a lease, but was doing so under a miner's right. He thought action should be taken ! to save the balance of this rich land, i It was agreed ■ that the deputation should also bring this matter before Government.

He subse quently married that timid woman, and six mouths afterwards he took off his boots iu the hall when he came iu late at night. He was making a call, and they were talking of literature. "The Pilgrim's Progress," he remarked, " always seem to rae painful. Of course, you are familiar with Bun yan?" "Well, yes !" he replied, •"I regret to say I have one on each foot, and they cause tne great pain!"

Why Do I Go to Church? [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

Why Do I Go to Church ? Au old minister has been review ing his experience and reading old letters. One man .sa\rs: " I have gone to church from habit—custom has made it delightful." Another : <£ I go for the sake of the spiritual uplift." Another :/' I go in order that I may be put into right rela tions with the Almighty." A fourth writes : '' It is a source of rest and comfort to me to turn my thoughts once a week at least, entirely away from the confusion and sordid.ness of everyday business affairs. I do not always agree with the minister, but the sermon at least sends my mind out of the ruts and starts ,it along new lines." None of these reasons are so good as the one given by Oliver Wendell Holmes : ''I have a plant in my soul called reve rence. I go to church to keep it watered." .Even this would not satisfy a good churchman, but it is bard to put into words real reasons, which are, after all, the secrets uf the soul.

Selling Cigarettes to Boy. TOBACCONIST FINED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 19 February 1914

Selling Cigarettes to Boy. I TOBACCONIST FINED. At South Melbourne, William Wellington was charged with hav ing sold cigarettes to a boy under the age of 16 years. Sub-Inspector Jones, who prose cuted, told how a small boy had purchased a packet of cheap ciga rettes, some of which he smoked, and some of which he chewed. He became sick, and a medical man called in found him to be suffering from tobacco poisoning. Defendant pleaded guilty. He said he saw a man outside, and ac cepting the boy's statement that he was sent by his father, sold him the cigarettes. Willie Cooper, a boy about .. 2 years of age, gave evidence of the purchase, and with tears running down his cheeks, said that he did not say anything about being sent by his father ; that instead defen dant said, " Put them in j'our poc ket and don't let anyone see them/' This was denied by defendant on oath. The bench believed the boy, and imposed the maximum fine of 20/.

Opening of New School at Gapsted.   Friday last was a day which will be long remembered at Gapsted, for it saw the handing over to the School Committee of the new State School, which has been agitated for for some years. An inspection of the old building alongside amply demonstrates the necessity there was for the new building, and the par- ents should be deeply grateful to the Hon. A. A.
