NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. Alfred Harmsworth (now Lord Nortlicliffe), who first devised per sonal journalism in tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, after 20 years, the most influential private public man in the three King doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has arrived he can sit down serenely and lortune comes to him cap in hand. I happen to know that there is 110 harder worked man in England than JLord Northcliffe. Like the aged Em peror of Austria, he is dressed at 5 a.m., and ready to digest every paper that is printed in London and the provinces. Before a majority of his assistants in the many offices which he commands have had their break fast he calls them up on the telephone to discuss with them what shall be the best story for the following day. "He is a hard taskmaster, but the most stimulating man I know," one of his young lions told me recently. Never a day...

Dear Meat. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

Dear Meat. ! Something in the way ol a meat famine is being experienced all over Australia. The country is being explored by buyers in search- of stock. Among these is Mr Sparr, seme years ago a butcher 'in M yrtle-. ford, but now in the same line at j Coocamundra, N.S.W., who was iu i Myrtleford yesterday. Mr Sparr sees no prospect of a • decline in prices for a year or two. On the contrary, he thinks meat will go up 'to 1/ per lb. : The Beechworth but chers are at present charging: lOd for undercut steak and 9d for rump, mutton Td, and sausages 7d. The falling-off' in consumption owing to these'high prices may balance things , a little. Much comment.was made by local cricketers on the fact that the cap-, tain of Myrtleford team did not ap pear to know " Tom " Re id was a bowler, for he was not tried till the match was lost. .Though the bats men were then set, he got a wicket. At a meetiug of the committee which conducted the recent race meeting at Whorouly in aid of the Myrtleford...

THE LAUGH CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

THE LAUGH CURE. By Philip G-i'bbs. ' . There have been many notable events reeorded in the newspapers during recent weeks—railway disas ters, strikes, political sensations—but there was one incident which attract? ed only a brief notice, although it con tained the secret which all the philos ophers of life have been searching for since the beginning of time—the se cret of happiness. ^ It took place in a police court—of all places in the world—and the se cret was revealed >by a young coster monger charged with the theft of a wheelbarrow. 'This young man did not say a single word in self-defence^ but he had a smile 'which seemed to pierce the gloomy atmosphere of the court like a sudden burst of sun shine. He chucklc-d whimsically when evidence was given against him. He laughed, with a joyous, unaffected laugh, at the very mention of the wheelbarrow. He was enormously amused by the misfortune which had befrllen him, and he was prepared to take any punishment that might be given to ...

Go-operative Bacon Co • The ,Western. and M u rray, Dis - tricts Coroperative Bacon Factory, which was opened in September last, is now prepared to deal with the whole of the shareholders' pigs. At a. board meeting last week the manager expressed himself highly satisfiedwith results up to date, and not a single mistake has occurred to the machiuery or workings in any way.. Over 8000 pigs were dealt wit|i last week, and the demand is greater than the supply. The man ager complains that some pigs for warded were ouly good stores, and he was sending all such pigs to the market, as it would injure,the com pany to kill them. He had no diffi culty in disposing of good bacon, but it was unprofitable: for share holders and harmful to the factory to forward any pigs that were not prime baconers.

Fire Alarm. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

Fire Alarm. • What might have developed into, a serious conflagration was on 'rues day afternoon, at the residence of Mr D. Croucher, averted by the promptitude of several neighbors. It appears that Mrs Croucher had lit a fire in an oven on the back ■ verandah of the residence. There was a hessiau curtain fixed along 'the verandah. During Mrs Crou cher's absence for a few miuutes a spark must have blown- out of the ,c oven and ignited this curtain, for on her return she found it ablaze. She gave the alarm, and. Messrs' A; j. and E. Croucher, Mr I'. Barlow and r * others promptly responded,"and / tearing down the curtain and apply ing a few buckets of water extin guished the flames. A table on the verandah was considerably charred, as also were portions of the wood work.. A basket, of clothes near by • was also burnt, the damage amount ing to a few pounds. Had assist ance not been sd quickly at haud, a disastrous conflagration might have occurred.

Bright Easter Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 April 1914

Bright Easter Carnival. Favored by fine weather on Mon- day last, this annual fixture turned out a very big success, probably more successful in every way than any that preceded it. The atten- dance must have been well on to 2000, the takings at the gates amounting to over ,£65. The spe- cial train from Wangaratta brought 325 passengers from there and in- termediate stations. The ride in   trucks was no more comfortable than usual, though owing to the favorable weather there was not so much complaint as formerly. The day's proceedings were most enjoy- able, this being in no small degree due to the way in which the whole of the officials carried out their duties. Everyone was at his post,   and the energetic secretary, Mr. E. J. Delaney, was most courteous and obliging. The consequence was that everything went off like clock work, each event being run up to time. The wood-chopping and cyc-   ling events aroused, keen interest, and resulted in go...
