Buffalo River. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

•• Buffalo River." • •• • • • • ... From a Correspondent What promises to give very profit able results is the cultivation of one . of . the finest—if uot, the finest— crops of tobacco ever grown,in this , district. This Is from the soil of Messrs Smith Bros, and under ex isting conditions there is, un doubtedly, ample scope for their . ambition and enthusiasm. . The en tire crop, some 25 acres in extent, is entirely free from any defects so | common of late years, and as such can honestly be recommended as a reliable market product. The soil ..from which it has sprung is well adapted for the purpose, beku a sandy loam, which affords the great est pleasure in working, for it does not produce a clogging effect, so to speak, a chief reason why the plants luxuriantly., thrive. In an under- ! taking .of- this sbrc a fair amount of I capital is required at the outset, and j a reasonable amount of knowledge j ' is advisedly necessary, otherwise the j venture would not give entire satis- i...

SHORT STORY. HOW THE MAJOR KEPT HIS WORD, From "Temple Bar." [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

SHORT STORY. HOW THE MAJOR KEPT HIS WORD, • Bjoni " Temple Bar." : It is -many years ago siuee the bench of magistrates in one of our Australian colonies was reinforced by the appointment of M"ajor Hec; tor Mornington, late of the th Light Infantry, who, like many other persons, had been attracted to the new country in the far south by the cheapness of its broad acres. At the time of Major Morning ton's arrival the country was ring ing with the dreaded fame of a man who had adopted the fantastic appellation of " Black Robin.'" He was the leader of a gang, and his successful daring had rendered his name the terror of all housewives, as it was secretly the wonder and delight of all the convict labourers.. He seemed ubiquitous; here one:d^y and miles away the next; irresist ible, too,, for all succumbed to the bold freebooter's demands. He ap peared to have moulded his conduct according to the tradictions of those famous highwaymen of old, in whose steps he desired to walk ; cultivated...

Counterfeit Coins. HALF CROWNS OVERWEIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

Counterfeit Coins. • Hau?-cro\vns Overweight. It is not often that a coin which is declared to be counterfeit con tains more" than the' prescribed amount of copper, silver or gold, as the case may be. This fact has, however, resulted in the rejection of no fewer than 69 half crowns which were included., iu the last .parcel of British coins withdrawn from cir culation in the Commonwealth and returned, to England. ' The explanation why, a counter feiter is able to put more than the , prescribed amount of silver in the coins is the fact that a half crown contains only one shilling's worth of silver. It is, therefore, possible to put even more silver in the coin ■ana still make a substantial profit, •■even v after all.' expenses have been deducted : Coins that aie chipped ,are no louger legal tender, while the person who is responsible fqr the chipping lays himself open to prosecution for ■defacement of.his Majesty's coinage. The small margin between a "good and bad sovereign' is illust...

Care of The Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

Care of The Teeth. The medical officers of the Lon don County Council have discovered that a larger proportion of bad teeth is to be found among the children of well-to-do people than amongithose of the poorest classes. The explanation is that the chil dren of the poor eat coarser food and fewer lollies, and that what lollies they do get are only those of the common boiled sugar variety and not the better variety, such as caramels and-, chocolates, which jdingkto vfche ,ttee.th^an'd. f thug aid .the process of decay. v ■ The Council's medical authorities , are urging the use of brown bread and fruit. , They- point out that an apple eaten at the conclusion of a meal leaves the mouth physiologi cally clean.

Are Blackberries a Pest. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

Are Blackberries a Pest. . Many poor' families in and about Beechworth. and Stanley (says the " Register") would regard anyone who asserted as much as bereft of his senses. Few if any plants, or bushes are essentially pestiferous, though in many cases man's ne lect to control them results'in them overrunning valuable land. In the summer just ended the S. S. Jam Company, of Beechworth, offered a penny halfpenny a pound for black 1 berries. The first week or two after wards only a few pouuds of black berries reached the factory . Then it became known that a keroseue tin full of blackberries weighed from | 401bs upwards, and that in places ! where there were numerous black berry bushes it was easily possible I for an adult to pick 401bs and up wards in a day. That meant 5/ to 6/ a day and. the fact-is that quite a number of people earned 30/ to 45/ a week pickiug blackberries w;hile the crop lasted aiid selliug them to the S.

BRIGHT. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

BRIGHT From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. The popularity of the district from a tourists' point of view was again evidenced in no uncertain way by the large influx of visitors to Bright and the Buffalo during the Easter holidays. During the week the trains were crowded and strangers might be observed on every side Added to this, the Carnival was a big factor in drawing a large crowd of people to the town, and the hotels and boarding houses were heavily taxed. The heavy transit to the Buffalo by tnotar is becoming ex tremely popular, and the large ma jority of guests availed themselves of this advantage. Picnic parties will also be gratified to know that there is now no embargo on their hours of travelling to the Eurobin Falls, as the gates are. shifted be yond the bridge. o i Hon. A. A. Billsou has informed the Bright Shire Council that Hons.

When opposite Mr Croucher's a bolt came out of one side of. the pole, and the horses swerving round the wheels locked and turned the buggy completely over, the occupants, with the excep tion of Mr Carroll, being partly, pinned underneath, Mr Carroll hung on to the horses and was .pulled out, but seeing the predica ment of the others let the animals;* go. Willing hands were soon on •the.spot, and the vehicle was lifted off Mrs Hill, Miss Regan and the baby, when, marvellous to state, it was found they had hardly sus tained a scratch. The horses with the pole attached bolted up Albert street and round towards the cricket ground, where they were captured none the worse for their gallop.
