Trip to Mount Buffalo. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 15 January 1914

Trip to Mount Buffalo. J. •+—— A party of uiue ladies and gentle men left Myrtleford on Saturday morning for Mount Buffalo. They proceeded by the track which leaves - the Bright road .just past Mr Brady's, fording the Ovens River. I This track they report as being in very fair order, and it saves seven or eight miles in the distance which would have to be travelled if the trip was made via Porepunkah. This is a fact that it is not generally known to visitors from Beechworth, Wangaratta, and other parts, who would no doubt be glad to avail themselves of the saving in distance to tbe Mount'. We would suggest that the Shire Council have a finger post erected at the turn-off for the information of tourists at this time of the year when the Ovens is low. The Myrtleford visitors had an' en joyable time on the Mount, anil re turned home on Sunday night, coming by Porepunkah, just to enable them to contrast the'differ ence between the two routes.

Vitality of Fish. The Director of'Fisheries; 'Mr Semmens, recently received a letter from Mr Bradley, of the Government Hatchery, narrating a remarkable instance of vitality in some black fish. " Recently,5' said Mr Bradley; " my sou brought iu five black fiah for ex perimental purposes. The fish were caught about 3 p.m. and tossod on the river bank. When my son was ready to return home, about 6 p.m., ho throw them into a iish bag, and carried them four miles to the house. On arrival we put them in a dish aud turned a stream of water on them from the tap, the pressure being about 40lb to the square inch. The fish seemed to be dead, but in a few. minutes they gave ample evidence of life, and soou wore as strong aa ever. We then put thom. into the ponds." "The facts as given by Mr Bradley," said Mr Semmens, •*' are mainly interesting because they illustrate how easy it is to carry black ti$h for stocking purposes.
