OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 March 1914

OLD AGE TO STAVE OFF. Notwithstanding the vogue of soured milk, there is really no specific antidote to old age, says a great Lon don physician in the "Daily Mail" of ; November 26. "Now and again a very old, man attributes his length of days to his abstemiousness. He has never smoked or consumed alcohol, and he has been stringently abstem ious with regard to solid food. "But then another centenarian tells us that he has eaten and drunk heart ily all his life and never denied him self any pleasure. People practise all sorts of things, avoiding salt, eat ing qheese, drinking milk, drinking nothing but water, eating pounds of grapes or other fruits, living on vege tables or nuts; but so far as a medi cal man can see, and he sees all sorts and conditions of men, no particular diet or odd way of living has any in fluence in prolonging life. AVERAGE PEOPLE*. "I speak, of course, with regard to average healthy people. Those~^is eased in any way must observe cer tain strict rules appropria...

BLACK MAGIC [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 March 1914

BLACK MAGIC Black Magis is by no means so rare a thing nowadays as the sceptical and unsuperatitious would think. "There are people in London to-day who practise witchcraft," declared Monsignor Benson, the well-known Catholic author, to a surprised "Daily News" representative on December 16. "Oddly enough," he went on, "the two persons whom I have in my mind are not women, but a middle-aged man and another male somewhat youniger, so I suppose one should call them wizards, rather than witches." "Mediaeval rites." was Monaignor Benson's brief description of the per formances of these persons—"rites which involve fasting and obscenity. They claim that they are in league with evil spirits, exactly as the old witches did. They are well educated; whether they are made or not, or whether they are liars or not, are points on which I would not care to commit myself. But I know they attempt this witchcraft." Explaining what may be called the psyschological view of the phenomena of black magic...

Nug-Nug Picnic Grounds. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 March 1914

Nug-N'ug Picnic Grounds. Complaints have been made to us of the conduct of some of the visi tors to the above favorite resort. 'It is stated that they tie their horses up in some of the best shades for picnickers, though there are any amount of suitable places handy, i The consequence is that toe former ; spots are left in a dirty conditio;:, j and the shrubs, etc.. are all broken i down. Then, again, litter of: all ! descriptions, broken bottles, etc., are left lying about. Should visi tors !o Nug-Xug not be more care ful, it is probable the trustees may t'eei it their duty to lock the gales and close the beautiful ground against all. comers. This would be a great pity, and it certainly wouia be a shame if those who are careful and cleanly should have to suffer for the acts of those who have no sense of decent conduct.

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND PREACHER [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 March 1914

PERSONAL SERVICE PLEA BY ACTRESS AND : PREACHER The Marquis of Salisbury, who pre sided last evening at the annual meet ing of the Personal Service Associa tion (says the "Westminster Gazette" of December 12), held at the Portman Rooms, apologised for the absence of Mrs. Asquith, his colleague in the presidency, who was absent for the first time from the annual gathering of the association. They had every reason to be satis fied, said the chairman, with th.e5work of the year. They had planted that plant, and it was flourishiiig—riot by any great gro^vth, but by a steady growth which belongs to things that succeed. The position of the associa tion in that work reminded him of the ordinary broker. There were any number of enterprises which needed energy to make them succeed, and there was a large number of men and women anxious to do something for their fellow men and women; but until that association came into existence they could never bring them into relationship. A. warm welcome w...

Mr J. S. Sharpe outlined the charge, and remarked that the prosecutors were the Albion Club, supported by the • ? Football Association.

ZOO CUBS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 March 1914

ZOO CUBS The London Zoo has little luck with, its youngsters "born in- the gardens'' (says the "Daily News" of November 3). , ; Sam and Barbara, the Polar bears, were presented-^-for the„seventh 'year in succession—with -two babies on Friday-, last,- but have lost them as usual. , . This year the officials determined that the youngsters should not be left to their father's large and casual feet, nor to their callous mother.- She is worse than the father, by far. The 'first cub to these.-unnatural;" parents was born in 1907. The father killed it. Since then the youngsters have died each 3rear within a few days of birth. This year preparations were made to give the cubs everv chance. Lilse all bear babies, the3r are. remark ably small,- no larger than dog pup pies, in fact. - : - Barbara's Polar idea is that what her children want is plenty of cold opgn air and wet concrete, and she gives it to" them.

NATIONALISTS AND LORD CROFTON [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 12 March 1914

NATIONALISTS AND LORD CROF TON Much bitterness has been aroused among the branches of the United Irish League and of the-Ancient Order of Hibernians In South 'Roscommon by the terms of the address recently presented by Lord Crofton to Mr Bonar Law in Dublin. It was therein stated that the policy of nationalism, the career of the United Irish League, the character of the An cient Order of Hibernians, and the records of boycotting and intimidation were sufficient to justify their opposi tion of the Home Rule Bill. At meetings of many branches of the two organisations in the county, Lord Crofton's action has been severely cri ticised, and it is understood that in some cases it was decided not to permit, hunting by the Roscommon Harriers (of which Lord Crofton is Master) until an ample apology and withdi-awal have been made by his lordship. The absolutions condemning Lord ; Crofton action adopted by several branches expressed regret at the neces sity of the members to take such a step i...
