Rifle Shooting-. ■Longwood v, Mybtlkfobd. A team from Myrtleford, under Capt. Gr. j Lee, left by Saturday morning's train for | longwood to return the *risit paid by the latter to Myrtleford in November last. Mr C. Whitbourn was unable'to go at the last moment, and the team was consequently one man-short. However, it was agreed on arrival to shoot with 11 men, 10'scores to count. Longwood was reached about noon and the visitors were heartily welcomed by Captain Cummins, Mr Lewis and ' others. Luncheon having been partaken of, an ad journment was afterwards made to the rifle range, and the serious business of the trip entered on. The day was fine, but the • conditions were not too favorable for shoot ing, the wind being changeable. The scoring, however, was fair. F. Lowerson and C. Murray (Myrtleford) were top scorers of the clay with 65 and 63 respect ively, and Cr R. Milne, who has not shot for some time, showed that he can still hold his own.

HOOPS. Witli the. arrival of the hoop season, j Jessie Pope sends me the following:— When you're walking good as gold Down the new suburban street, Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat, When you're musing with dejection On the latest by-election, , " Or brooding over business, which is wearing rather thin, If there comes a savage clanking And a swift metallic spanking And a bounding loop of iron bark's a segment of your shin— . Pray accept the situation With submissive resignation— Hoops are in! When you're driving in your car With the luggage up behind, And a week-end free and far In the forefront of your mind— If a maiden small and sporting Sends a wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of her plaything with appreciative grin— Prithee check your malediction: 'Tis a time-honored affliction: Hoops are in! -London ~ "Opinion.

THE DEADS CARE FOR THE LIVING SOUL. A Strange Story With a Strange Sequel. A strange ghost story, in • which the principals are said to 'be people of the highest social position, is, according to the "Express," engaging the atten tion of London society. A Kensington vicar was leaving the church after choir practice when a . lady stepped out of the aisle and ask ed him in agitated tones to come with &lt; her at onee to an address near by. "A gentleman is dying there," she said. "He is extremely concerned a/bout the state of his soul and anx ious to se you oefore he dies." ~ . The clergyman followed her to a waiting taxi-cab, and a short drive • round the corner brought them to'-a mansion. The lady.. wlio seemed to be extremely agitated, urged the vicar- .: to hurry. He sprang out of the ca>b, rang the bell, and a butler appeared; "Does Mr. live here?" ' • '"Yes,. sir." .-1 "I hear he is .seriously ill and has sent for me." The butler seemed astonished al- ■ most beyond wor...

This was agreed to. The Presidont suggested each club should pay .£2 .10/...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Before blanching almonds soak them tor two or three minutes in' boiling water; the skin will then slip off quite easily. - • Scorch marks on linen may be re moved by rubbing, with a frfesli-cut onion, the garment being afterwards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccough, give the patient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and. vinegar. If this does not afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of greens, use sugar in place of soda, which gives the greens a much better fiavoiy but they then require a- little longer cooking. .To keep the white of an egg from, leaving the yolk and scattering about in the water, take a spoon and stir the water rapidly around for a few seconds, then drop the egg -gently in, the "hole" in the centre of the whirl pool formed by the rapid circular mo tion of the spoon.

No Regrets. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
No Regrets. "Yes," said the retired insurance •agent, "I once got a man to take out a £10,000 life policy only the day before he was killed, and it took a lot of coaxing to do it." "I expect you wished your persuas ive powers had not been so success ful!" "Well, hardly. You see, I married the widow." At Bye, Suffolk, not a single sum mons against a. ratepayer has been issued for twenty-three years. At Eye "owe yous" are unknown. It is sad to reflect that there would be a great deal more wickedness if some people had more nerve..
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
: WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. : Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If so, here is a recipe—'buy wre&lt;*lcs. A beach 'boat which cost about £200 to 'build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. 1 Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at .Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" ,was made • .by a speculator who bought a wreck •on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re lumed him his money several times over, ana yet he still had many tons ol" iron, fittings, rope, etc., 'besides a •>; .large quantity of copper sheathing out ■of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find :a market for everything. And this is - precisely where the specialists shine.

The dead girl's right arm was ampu tated and part of it used to replace the diseased portion which had been removed from the girl Hubacek's arm. The operation was so successful that now Hubacek uses her right arm as well as before her illness.. . A good husband makes a good wife.

Departure of Father Mahony. j &lt;► The announcement of the irn- i pending departure of Father Ma- j hony will be received with sincere I regret by the parishioners of the Roman Catholic Church throughout the Myrtleford-Bright parish. The reverend gentleman, who is to be transferred to the charge of the Beech worth parish, has made many genuine friends during his years of ministration in this large district, and his loss as a zealous pastor will be keenly felt.

Beech-j worth is to be congratulated upon [ gaining Father Mahony's services, and while ihe local people are re joiced at their pastor's promotion, his severance from the Myrtleford Bright parish will be keenly felt by the whole of the.parishioners.

Rabbit Trappers, Beware! [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
Rabbit Trappers, Beware! Au Ovens Vale correspondent writes :—-Some , of those engaged iu trapping rabbits should understand that they are regardlessly taking the law into their'own hands when they lay poison abo.ut the traps in order to lay low any dogs that might chance to wander around. They should', of necessity, -first acquaint householders that they propose doing so, and negligence in this regard is a gross violation of the "law. In one instance, a valuable dog has •lost its life bv- this reckless act, and the identity of the offender is known. The reason why prosecu tion does not follow is because the aggrieved one has no fascination for the law court. \ Mr F, Muller., junr., of M, rtle ford," acted as judge of vegetables, ■ etc., at the Stanley Show on Wed nesday last.
