The A.N.A. in Myrtleford. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

The A.N.A. in Myrtieford. The excuision of delegates from the A.N.A. Conference at Wanga ratta and their friends arrived in. Myrtleford on Friday at 10.30. But ! what a falling' off there was from the number expected! Instead of i 600 which we were led to believe were coming! only about 1.70 put in an oppearance. The hotelkeepers and dining room proprietors had gone to considerable expense and trouble in engaging hands and pro viding refreshments for the expected big crowd, but several did not have one customer, and were thus put to considerable loss. , The visitors at once made their way up the streets, the attraction being the Re form Dredge, and they inspected it and its workings thoroughly. The Age " corres pondent, who accompanied them, draws a harrowing picture of the devastation he says they saw. He writes—" This dredge of Myrtleford is stretching its maw out . from the stream into the banks, eating away the back yards of quite a number of dwellings, and squirting the soil in...

Teachers' Examinations. BAD ARITHMETIC RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

Teachers" Examinations. Bad Arithmetic Results. ;. At t;he examinations for teachers' certificates, held in December last, in arithmetic only 17 out 0^329 who went up did Will enough to pass. The examiner remarks, ' ' The re sults disclose serious weakness in the preparation' of so important a subject, and a want of knowledge that is simply deplorable." He adds, " The candidates do not ap pear to study the subject • of arith-. metic from the point-pfyviewiof - -theJ teacher, as the section dealing with book work was not only very poorty answered, but. some ridiculous mis takes were made. 'Leap, year, it was gravely announced, had an ex tra day ■ in'March, or in August, or ii£some other month than February. This last statement points to a de gree of ignorance that, in a school .teacher, seems almost incredible. One wottld imagine it would be rather hard to find a back-blocks rustic who did not know what leap year meant ;■ to be told, as we are now, that there are Government school-te...

Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

(From Our Correspondent.) An opinion is gaining currency that there is something akin to a "mark time" attitude being adopted with reference to the erec tion of a shelter; shed at the local school. Already two concerts have been-held in aid of samfe, and sub stantial sums v. have1 been realised, but beyond this little has been seen or heard. .. The overhanging limbs of trees on the Myrtleford to Bright road is a great source of peril tp wayfarers, and in this regard I have faithfully made reference from . time to time. Two huge spars have recently fallen in an opposite direction, happily, from the main thoroughfare. Others are likely to fall. Ode , ; . Too much winking, not enough thinking— Cut the limbs !

Porepunkah. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

aaaaqga n»iyi Porepunkah. From Our Correspondent.' Tuesday. The long continued dry weather has been broken. After occasional ! showers from Wednesday, which put new heart into the district, a heavy thunderstorm broke over the place on Friday night. Heavy rain fell, which was very opportune. The ground being warm, the grass is springing up rapidly, and the rain should leave the ground in good order for ploughing and sowing. With the: recent rain several . waterspouts have again occurred throughout the district. Something like a cloud burst occurred some distance up the Buffalo road, and it is reported that about ^200 worth of repairs recently carried out on the\ road have been undone. The hillsides became cascades of water in a few moments, arid the road has j been badly scored by the waters. J At Lower Buckland parts of the road were carried away. The dam age has been temporarily repaired by the residents. The rivers and creeks were turned into a black slime from the silt; and debri...

FAMOUS INSTITUTION [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

FAMOUS INSTITUTION '' An informative sketch of the history of the Foundling Hospital in Blooms bury was given by the Solicitor-Gene ral, Sir Stanley Buckmaster, K.C., in Mr Justice Joyce's Court yesterday, in an action by the Crown against the governors of the hospital (says "The Daily News," January 21). The Court was asked for a declara tion that the defendants were not leg ally entitled to part with lands in Bloomsbury without the consent of the Board of Education (who took the place of the Charity Commissioners under the Charitable Trust Act, 1853), on the ground that the hospital was not a cha rity exempt from the provisions of the Act of 1S53. The hospital, he said, could not claim exemption unless it was a mixed char ity—partly maintaned by income from endowments and partly by voluntary subscriptions. At the present day the hospital had an income of upwards of £27,000 a year from its endowments, and received from voluntary annual subscriptions a sum of £11 a year. It also rec...

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY Winter sports in Norway (writes a 1 correspondent in "The Times") are'the amusement of the people. They might really be called democratic if the word were not habitually used to denote something disagreeable and unpopular. For there is hardly a man or woman in Norway under middle age, except tl"-e infirm, who does not spend most of his of her spare time struggling with the ' laws of gravity in the winter months. And there are five of these (Winter months at the very least, even at sea level; higher up they have never been counted, but enthusiasts take "a busman's holiday" by holding an an nual ski-jumping competition on Mid' summer's Day somewhere in the moun • tains near Finse. The strange thing is that the cult for winter sports is not much older in Nor way than elsewhere. Boys have pre sumably always tried to slide down slopes somehow, and the more leisur ed used to do a little skating; but, 40 years ago, it was not considered gen teel to run on ski. - If ...

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 April 1914

PICTURE FILM INDUSTRY UNITED STATES LEADS. The United States is the greatest film-producing country in the world (writes L.R., in "The Westminster Ga zette")- It is no exaggeration to say that over 50 per cent, of the world's productions have their origin there. During the first nine month's of last year the country' exported 29,000,000 feet of film, more than three-quarters of which came to Great Britain. The kinemato graph industry in America must, how ever, be somewhat hampered by the extraordinary censorship conditions prevailing, which are in the hands' of no fewer than forty-eight separate and distinct jurisdictions. Though America is responsible for most of the film-producing, Great Bri tain is easily first in the matter of dis tribution, quite 80 per cent, of the world's pictures being "released" here. This means employment for many thousands of Britons in offices, theatres and show-rooms, and is a striking ex ample of the advantage of freetrade. On Wednesday evening next, c...
