_ QRXCKRf. Tiie final match for .the pcemierr ship of the Bright A'ssbciaVfoa was continued on Saturday. When stumps were drawn the game was left in an interesting stage, and the result 6f the play on Saturday next will be watched with no small amount of interest. Batting first, Freeburgh opened well, Beckton and Christian batting steadily, and it was some time before the pair were separated. H. Briggs contributed a useful 32 not out;, and Beckton got to .39 before Gordon Murray bowled him. Christian's 29 was i next best, and with 24. by J. Gra ham made in good fashion,, the innings closed for 164."

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerottvwohl, ir> . "The Daily News.") M. France has. been hailed among , u; is a great novelist, moralist and critic At which he must have smiled, as ifc his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would he be, any thing so solemn, or so narrow, or sc objective. He mayj indeed, have writ ten essays in the* guise of fiction, or 'fiction in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written, of books . anci authors, and about them, or around them; for he has spent a lifetime in their midst,, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic oi reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or .realise anyone or any thing in art—save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful.

Deadly Snakebite. CALCUTTA, Feb. 28. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
Deadly Snakebite. Calcutta, Feb. 28. "Professor" Frederick Fox, an Australian, was demonstrating with a snakebite cure at the Zoological Gardens yesterday, when he was accidently bitten, and died. He had just finished treating .a snakebitten goat, whose life he suc ceeded in saving, and had left open a box containing snakes. One of the reptiles escaped, and, biting Fox, inflicted five punctures on the wrist. The " Professor," who had often; submitted to snakebites in order to demonstrate the efficacy of his cure, smilingly incised four punctures. The fifth escaped his notice. Then he had lunch, and in the afternoon transacted various busi ness. Later in the day symptoms of poisoning developed. The fifth tiny puncture was discovered, but it was too late. Fox's antidote is oiily operative when applied immediate ly. He died at 3 o'clock in the evening. The Director of Agriculture has b^en informed that the special com mittee of the Victorian Grain, Chaff and Produce Association has fix...
Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
Ovens Vale. (From Our Correspondent.) It is worthy .of note that one cul vert, at least—that immediately op posite Mr Alex. Muller's residence —has received attention, and the manner in which the repairs have been executed reflects credit. Still, residents will for ever be. thankful should the authories gratefully re move several overhanging limbs from trees on the Myrtleford to Bright road. The annual Harvest Thanksgiv ing service was conducted at the local school on Sunday wr:ek last by Rev. R. N. Morrison. The occa sion was made one of special import for the upbringing of children, a responsibility dependent upon the mother, upon whose charge their comfort principally depends. While we inculcate a desire for personal freedom and independent citizen ship, who will venture K say what these children shall achieve when they grow up ?

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
!■' - ■■ THE STREET GLEANER A paper having: said that "To recog- ^ nise the supremacy of the.street cleaner would be to usher in the reign t of • "• chaos," "The Daily Herald" takes it to task and says-:—"Now, ...that* justw brings us very close to the .root; of .the , ~ matter. 'Supremacy' is indeed the wrong word, an instance', of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice,-the right to live a human, and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the-social and spiritual economy he is,as.truly and deeply to/ be considered^ as the artist, the author, or the doctor. We. may thus re-state the. proposition:i'.T.o recognise the importance, " the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher- ' • in the reign of sanity and humanity.'

GIPSIES' STRIKE COPPERSMITHS "DISSATISFIED?-1 The latest strike is that of perform ing gipsies. " For the past month twelve of the" ' gipsy coppersmiths who attracted at- " ; tcntion when they arrived in London recently from Eastern Europe and set tled for a time in Ilford, have been ap- / . pearing in a performance at the Caba ret Theatre Glub at Heddon street, and • •••• they are announced to take part in a gipsy play there on the 29th (states "The Daily News' of' December 23). Jura Filipoff, the "picturesque chief, when interviewed on the subject, said that his tribe are striking for increased wages.

St John's Wort. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
St John's Wort. The Hon. A. Ai, Billson's visits to parts of his own and neighboring constituencies has so impressed him with the supreme importance of the eradication of St. John's Wort to the landowners of ths districts con cerned that be has taken on the task of endeavoring to awaken the Gov ernment to a sense of its responsibil ity. It is to be hoped Mr Billson . may meet with hearty co-operation from public bodies along the Ovens Valley, and that such facts may be placed before the Minister tor Agri culture, Mr Lawson, on his visit to this district, about 15th April, that the Government may b'e induced to take some determined action to ' grapple with the eradication of this fast-spreading, devastating weed. In the course of a lengthy memo, to the. Premier, Mr Billson says— " The complete eradication of St. John's Wort has now passed be yond the ability of municipalities /and individuals to deal with. It is ' a work that must be undertaken by the State in the interests of the St...
MAGIC WAND ALHAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
MAGIC WAND ALHAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. The magic wand—the conductor's baton—at the Alhambra is in new hands (says the Westminster Ga zette"). The magician is Mr John An? sell, who for seven years has been conductor for Mr Cyril Maude and latterly with Mr Louis Meyer at the Strand Theatre, and has climbed to the conductor's desk from a subordin ate place in the orchestra. . When, last Saturday afternoon (De cember 10), Mr Ansell assumed his new duties, he conducted the Alham bra orchestra and generally took con trol of Alhambra revue and ballet for the first time. But the only re spect in which Alhambra habitues could observe any difference from normal happenings was that the prin cipals made a point of bowing nicely —-and quite noticeably—to the con ductor upon entering the stage. By the middle of this week even the most observant of critics might have supposed that Mr Ansell had spent his life conducting at the Alhambra. For he commenced with a very great advantage, having the techn...
FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
FOX HUNTING ENGLAND'S OLDEST PACK. The Staintondale foxhounds have the reputation of being the oldest pack in the country, it is a claim which does not g"> unchallenged, even in York shire, but it rests on the authentic ground that a charter was granted by the Norman King Stephen in the 12th century to some monks in the monast ery of Staintondale to hunt foxes, hare, and deer on the moors between that place and Scarborough. "I cannot vouch for this remote an tiquity,'' said^Mr Halliday Huggan, of Crumble's Court, Scalby, who, as sec retary of the hunt, speaks with autho rity (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). "The farthest we can go back in actual re cords is the memory of an old man of | 86, who remembers his gx*andfaher hunting with the Staintondale hounds. That takes us back to the beginning of the nineteenth century, and there is a song, written in 1811, which commem morates a famous run of that year, so that the hunt can certainly boast a re spectable age. It is a farmers' hunt first ...
THEATRE OF FUTURE DOOM OF SPOKEN WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
■THEATRE OF FUTURE DOOM OF SPOKEN WORDS. • Even those who do not agree with M. • Leon Balcst's theories on the develop ment of various forms of art will not deny the freshness and originality • which makes the Russian painter one of the most interesting personalities of . the Paris of to-day (says the Paris cor respondent of "TIio Daily News," De . eember 18). M, Bakst is thoroughly sincere in his . convictions. He doesn't play to the gallery, though .he may startle it by such dicta as those, enunciated to-day in the course of my chat with him in li.is atelier on the Boulevard Malsher bes. TRIUMPH OF PAINTING "The theatre of the future means the triumph of painting and the gradual . abolition of the spoken word," he be . ■ gan.

The book, whether tragedy or drama, will be sufficient to itself, without be ing obliged to have recourse to inter pretation, which always leaves' some _ thing to be desired. "The actor seeks in r...
MYRTLEFORD V. BUFFALO. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 March 1914
myrti.kford v. Buffalo. MjTtleford made a much better showing against Buffalo on Satur day than was generally expected, and but for a couple ^ of run-ouis would have done even better. Wil loughby and Duane opened for the locals, and were batting confidently when the former was foolishly run out' through his own fault. Harry Milne and Duane hit up runs freely but when the score had reached the latter was thrown out by Lillis when att^roptin a short one. The Murray brothers batted nicely for their scores of 19 and 13 ; Glough made 11 in three hits, one being a lovely sixer ; Dr Sutton was batting, nicely when he went out to a ball from'Grant, and was stumped; and George Smith was not out with 12. Frauenf elder played at a bali from '4Ping " Paul-, which he missed and the ball striking the wicket keeper's pad rebounded on to the wicket when the batsmen was out of his crease. He was out, of course, but there' was some discussion afterwards as to how. Under old-^merules he was " stumped,...
