FARMYARD FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914

farmyard fire. Mr. John Patching, farmer, of Bolga, met a stroke of bad fortune early on Thursday morning.. About 2 o'clock, his son, aged 14, was aroused from sleep, and, looking through his bed room window, noticed a red glow in the hay-shed, about 30 or 40 yards, from the house. The boy gave the alarm, and his mother, his uncle William and himself rushed into the yard, to discover that a fire had broken out in the hay-shed. The seat of the fire was found to be at the top of the hay-stack. Combined efforts were made to remove a brand-new reaper and binder, but they were unsuccessful, owing to the fierceness and rapid sproad of the fire. Nothing was saved. Besides the new harvester, the shed con tained about 8 tons of now hay, a chaff-cutter, a lot of harnoss, and the j usual odds and ends found in a hay slied. Mr. Patching was uninsured ; J he computes his loss at over £200. The origin of the outbreak is a com plete mystery.

The Herald. THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914

THE HERALD. Thursday, March 5, 1914. The police are now engaged in making a thorough canvass in order to have every qualified person's name on the Legislative Assembly rolls. All persons who have not got their names on the roll should call at the police station without delay, and have the matter at- tended to, thereby saving trouble. There is no charge made in connection with the matter. An important meeting of farmers at Boramboola, Wagga district, carried resolutions objecting to the proposed amalgamation of the pastures protection boards with shiro councils. A resolution was also curriod condemning the use of the poison curt nud phosphorized pollurd as n means of destroying rabbits. It was held that this system of rabbit ex termination had proved a failure and was a source of great danger to tho agricul turist, because of tho ■ destruction of in sectivorous birds and the danger of grass fires.

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914

The Great Montamor Case. ' By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "Tlio Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. Meanwhile, the returned heir wait ed in the miniature drawing-room. He moved about his close quarters like a Polar bear in his cage—alternately puzzled, angry, miserable, hopeless. Netta loved him, he told himself. She had loved him before the great shock of a contest for her, more un scrupulous, more terrible than the struggle of two men loving one girl is wont to be in civilised times. She had loved him still when he had to make his confession—a confession not only of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she ever been again the same bright, lovely Netta of the first happy days at the farm? "Never," he thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shock of his revelations. In any case, she had submitted to his wishes—had given her promise to toe his wife; nor had she—spotless, innocent of al! worldly desires—been in the least de gr...

FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN AN ASTONISHING ESCAPE [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914

FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN AN ASTONISHING ESCAPE Of the many astonishing accidents1 and lucky escapes which have been re- I corded from time to time (says "The I Daily News and Leader" of December J 31), that which occurred to Lily Alden I at Grimsby yesterday, probably holds | a place of its own. Miss Alden, who is a printer's as sistant. was crossing the railway line at the Pasture street crossing when a passenger train from Hull was duo. The road gates were closed, and the girl made use of the hand gates. She was on the line used by the approaching train, when, without a moment's warning, she fainted and fell to the ground. It is exceedingly fortunate for Miss Alden that the signalman in the nearby box happened to bo looking in her dlrec Hon and that he -was just in time to put the signals against the oncoming train and run out a red flas at the window of his box. - The driver applied the emergency brakes, and the tram was brought to a standstill within a few feet of the un consciou...

I ^omefi laden still with good days that whisper of romance, when in some local sanctity, or haunt of old legend our feet loiter for a little before we pass forward again. I indeed seek these Places, and confess an incurable affection for romance in my thoughts and deeds. I would not banish her from art or life, and though most in tellectuals of to-day will have none of ner, spurn romantic and classic alike, and take only "realism' to their bosoms; yet who shall declare that rea lism is the last word, or that reality , to her drab categories alone? iv.,. »?»° 'r?aIity' for ua—-nor for >ou either. ye sober ones, and we are rar rrom being so alien to ono another a®„y? suppose, and perhaps our good-' will to get beyond drunkenness is just as respectablo as your belief that ye aro altogether incapable of drunken ness.

Delightful weather conducod to a large gathering at this popular fix ture, which was declared to bo well up to the standard of previous meetings hold under the Club's auspices. The fields wore oxceptiunfelly good, and tho racing resulted in some close finishes. A regrettubld misunderstanding between several riders in tho Hack Ilnco and tho starter of that event was 1'osporieibla for some unpleasantness. In consequence of an indifferent start, some horsemen re turned to the starting-point in'the belief, that the starter had called to tbo. field to "Ciime back." The remainder of the starters completed tho distance. Upon returning to scale, several horse-owners' expressed annoyance with tho starter, who, howovor, declared the event "a start." With this oxception, proceedings passed off onjoyably, thanks to tho .'diligence of a woll-appujuted body of officials. Results appended :— Tiiial Handicap, ; ', ■ Of 8 sovs. A In n...

THE WORK OF THE COUNTRY ROADS' BOARD. T.i give our'readers an idea of the work of the above Board, wo reprint the following:— The Chairman stated that they had to tako the Shires on a face. They had, at times, to iuppoot two or throe shires bo fore they could determine what they •would do in one. Adjoining shires modified work in each other. Their duty was to cany out a national policy, and a national scheme of road work. That embraced not only roads constructed and maintained by tho Quverniaout, arterial or national routes, but commercial •routes or roads; they had to open and devolop tho country, inako tho country fit for .closer settlement. They had to keep in mind the railways; to make foeders to markets, towns or States. Tho . present trip was a flying run through, but still tlioy could gaugo tho roads in a Shire.

GAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914

QAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. (By w. Beach Thomas in "The Daily Mail.") It) the country jve enter the New Year gaily. The moon shows a thin and dainty sickle over the grove, and throws just enough light to sparkle on snow and rime. The stars in the belt of Orion,in which French sailors find peculiar luck, shim mer electrically in the frosty air of a night as true to season as ever the year was in good old time—let us say in 1861 —when "Good King AVenceslas" was sung along the Ouse to the tune of the fenmen's skates at the hour when the Old Year went and the New Year came. On one down that I know of the New Year will be seen in by the only men who can really act as carol. The shep herd's light twinkles on the hill, look ing from below about as big as Alde baran or Vega and out-winking the North Star. The hurdles are packed with straw, the ewes are collected, and the cry of new-born lambs and the troubled bleat of the owe following after the shepherd are likely to make th...
