Modern Woman's Dress. The Show Prize Essays. First Prize (the gift of Mrs E. R. Sutton), awarded to Miss A. WALLPOLE, Whorouly. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Modern Woman's Dress, j 1 The Show Prize Essays. ! First Prize (the gift of Mrs E. R. : Sutton), awarded to Miss A. Wai^pole, Whorouly. Fashion's pendulum is ever swinging, and almost everyone Is .deeply interested in the subject of woman's looks in the last few years —in her clothes and her ways of wearing them—and many have ven tured the opinion that they express a certain spiritual state, not only of the wearer, but also of the country at large. Perhaps, at no other time was it so possible for women to at once combine comfort with elegance as it is at the present time. The low collars, the cool trim dresses, the straight easy lines of the figure, the shady hats and sensibly-shaped shoes are worthy of admiration, as also the moderately narrow and short skirt But when Fashion car ries all these to the farthest extreme it is possible to appear ridiculous without attaining either comfort or elegance. In earlier years women, wore many clothes, considering it indeli cate to expose the ...

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was , .that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, "Bishop of New Yorlc, who was once asked by a lady :\vliy, in the many pictures and studies of angels •exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young aiien without -beards'or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women' naturally inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This story is related by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey, \ icar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not" the ? least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creighton, who once'received a book from a second-rate author, to whom he replied by post, "I thank you very much for forwarding to me your Taook, and I promisa you faithfully that I will not...

Spoiling the Fun. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Spoiling the Fun. It was a sweet, sad play, and there was hardly a dry handkerchief in the house. But one man in the pit irrita ted his neighbors excessively by re fusing to take the performance in the proper spirit. Instead of weeping, he Jaughed. While others were mopping their eyes and endeavoring to stifle "I d-don't know what brought y-you h-here," she sobbed, with streaming eyes, and pressing • her hand against her aching heart; "but if y-you don't like the p.-play, you might 1-let other p-people enjoy it!" . An Irish soldier was crossing a bar rack square with a pail in which he was going to get some water. A sergeant, passing at the time, no ticed that Pat had a very disreputable' looking pair of trousers on, and, wish ing to make a report, stopped the man and asked.— "Where are you going?" "To get some water." "What! In those trousers?" "No, sergeant. In the pail!" Young Henderson, who has gradu ated in medicine, is very fond of giv ing wise opinions on all matters. One day...

NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN For many years Europeans strove in vain to master the art of a certain kind of painting executed by the Chinese. It was a comparatively easy matter to obtain the materials, viz., the brushes, paints and the particular kind of paper used—but there the matter ended. They failed to get the paper to "take" the paints. Persuasion and bribes alike failed to extract from the wily Oriental the secret of applying the colors, and for years the art remained the knowledge of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a young English bank-clerk to discover the secret. One day—unknown to the artists— he was watching them at work. . He ■was struck by the fact that each time before dipping the brush into the paints, they rubbed it through their hair vigorously a few times. He procured the necessary mater ials and tried to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. He then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through his hair a few times and again essayed the exper...

AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. Tlie Australian eucalyptus, or, as it is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully in- many countries, and in New Zealand it has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia. In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have came to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the systematic culture of the tree was be gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, Chief of the Forest Service in Brazil, came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mr. Maiden, Director of the Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desires to cultivate the tree for the sake of the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail way sleepers and also for fuel fox railway locomotives. Even in Austra lia it has been found necessary to re sort to reafforest...

Startling Driving Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Startling Driving Accident. i ' Our Porepunkah correspondent writes :—Mr James Miller, senr., the well-known carrier, met with a sensational accident with his team on the Buffalo road on Friday last, and his escape from serious injury was miraculous! It appears that Mr Miller was journeying to the Mount with a waggon lo.id of goods drawn by a team ot four horses. When the 15-milj post had been reached the two le idins: horses be came stariied, and plunging for ward broke the draw.-bar, and dash ing on pulled Mr Miller, who re tained a hold of the reins, from the waggon. When Mr Miller fell to the ground the other two horses at tached to the waggon also, became frightened and swerved over the side of the road, taking 'the convey ance with them, one of - the wheels passing over Mr Miller's arm. The road is very precipitous at this point, and the horses and waggon rol ing over took five turns and were finally dashed against a tree 50 yards dowu the . hill Mr Miller, who luckily escaped...

BRIGHT. From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. The fifty-fourth half yearly meet ing of shareholders of the Bright 'District Prospecting Co is called for Thursday evening next. The Com pany, which is better known as the itong Tunnel Co., in the report to be submitted express their regret that up to date the success desired by all mining companies has not yet come their way. Since the last meeting the main crossing has been . extended nearly 200 feet. The country worked has been for the most part hard/ but of late a little water has been encountered. This is believed to be a favorable indica tion, and the Directors still have a firm faith in the future of the com ; pany. The Mines Department has "... voted ,£500 ; during the year for prospecting, work, and this sum is not going amiss in the hands of careful management. During the half year ,£486 was spent in con tracts in the main tunnel, and ,£S3 in 'wages.-. Various; other, items bring the outlay to ,£622 ; while the : .receipts show t&a...

Porepunkah. From our Correspondent. Tuesday. Football is in the air. Several practice games have been held, and players are anxiously awaiting the competition matches. Porepuukah should again put a fine team into the field, although the services of such leading players as Jack Water - ■ house and Fred Smith, who have left the district, will be greatly missed. There are several young players of promise, and the Selec tion Committee will have their work cut out when the time comes round. There will probably be two or three new players who will be an acquisi tion, and the team should give the same good account of themselves as in past years. Mr G. Rayner, senr., left on Monday morning for a few weeks holiday in New Zealand, and dur ing his absence the blacksmithing business will be carrid on by his son George.

A MILK-WHITE STEED. A school teacher once set his class of boys a composition on the "horse," the following being given: — "The horse is a very noble beast, he eats oats and sawdust. He goes on four legs. He does not stay out late at night,' nor pull faces at his little sister, nor tease his grandmother, things which I think is bully for the horse. He does not have to wash his face in the morning. (I wish I. was a horse.) There is many differ ent kinds of horses: saw horse, omni bus horse, war horse, hoss-radish, hoss pistol, Colt's revolver and a donkey (he ain't got nothing to do with the subject, but we'll throw him in). There's only one kind that's good to eat, and that's hoss-pistol—I mean, hoss-radish. Some folks like a reddish horse, then again, some like a milk-white steed, with flowin' tail and main erect, but. for me, give me a coal-black steed with fiery-red nos trils and flashin' eye, or gimme death. I forgot to say that a horse has a tail, and can unfold it like Hamlet ...

Defence of Farmers. • As.the outcome of the trouble in N.S. W. re " black" chaff farmers have discussed the proposal; to place crural workers under the State Arbi tration \ Act.

DO WE LIVE LONGER? [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

DO WE LIVE LONGER? It is generally maintained that we live longer than the ancients did. But researches' among the tombs of Ro man times in Italy and Spain are far from proving this. There was certainly a larger infant mortality, but the expectation of-life between fifty and sixty in ancient Rome was equal to our own, and after sixty the Romans had the advantage. Soldiers, in particular, lived to an extreme old age, in some cases reach ing 100 years. The longevity of the Romans was due to a high infant mortality. Only the fit survive By taking great care of the young we have reduced this= mortality, tout at the same time we have not added to the average length of life. This is not difficult to under stand, for if the weakly and the deli cate survive childhood, they do not" as a rule live to old age. A high rate of infant mortality means, in fact, a low death-rate after sixty, and vice-versa. The ancient Roman had a less chance of living to twenty, but if he survived he had a greater...
