Baldness Cured by Freezing. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Baldness Cured by Freezing. Can' baldness be cured by cold atmospheric treatment ? This is a' question that has been occupying the attention of scientists.; Sir Ernest Shackleton, the ex plorer, laid stress upon the tact, that many of the meu in his expedition before their sojourn in the Antarctic regions were remarkable for the thinness of their, locks. They had "barely been a few weeks in the frozen South, however, than their ! hair began to grow, and when they returned from their expedition all' had hair remarkable for its thick ness and luxuriance. It has been remarked also that jaearly all the men who work the greater part of the day in cold-sto rage rooms have good heads of hair. The laws of Nature would seem to emphasise the fact that cold is favorable to the growth of hair. Take the case of the animals. Iu no countries of the world is their fur so thick and luxuriant as in the frozen Arctic regions. By . a special dis pensation of Providenca the animal ■dwellers there f re g...

Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Oveuis VaiSo From our Correspondent. The decking and nailing of old bridge over Happy Valley creek, near the' approach to the Happy Valley Hotel, has been thoroughly overhauled, and now presents an appearance in confirmit'y with good workmanship. This latest work by the Shire Council inclines one to ] look forward wtth confidence to the j fulfilment of other obligations re- J quiring the attention of the local j governing body. In anticipating j the future of the good to be accorn- J plished in this particular, there | seems to be very few reasons to lead one to conclude otherwise than that a fair effort-will be directed to place any possibility of danger to human life beyond question. This road is much availed of - by tourists and others as a means of approach to the beauty spots around Myrtleford, and it would be sheer folly to allow it to' v get into disrepair. Despite the fact that the late1 potato crops passed through au ex cessively dry season, they now show signs- of remarkab...

Arms for [?]lster. 70,000 RIFLES LANDED. LONDON, 26th April. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Arms forJJlster. 70,000 Rifles Landed. London, 26th April. ! Some weeks ago the movements I of the steamer Fanny were regarded with suspicion, in view of the fact that she was reported to have on board a cargo of 70,000 rifles. The Kxchauge Telegraph Com pany's "Belfast correspondent states that the Fanny, from Hamburg, landed her consignment of 70,000 rifles at Lame, Bangor, and Donag hadee, near Belfast, l&te on Friday night, and the rifles were distributed early yesterday throughout Ulster. A cordon of volunteers severed communication 'between I,arne and the outside world. The cargo was transferred to another steamer at sea and again transhipped to two smaller vessels. One steamer, con taining nine- tenths of the rifles, pro ceeded to Ivarne, where the police were powerless spectators of the landing of the rifles, and were un able to communicate with Belfast. The unloading began at ten o'clock and terminated an hour later. Over a hundred motorcars, besides motor lorries, ...

Wire Netting Standard. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

Wire Netting Standard. The Customs Department last j week held up a quantity of German j wire netting, the allegation, being ! made that it is 20 per. cent light, and''that it is 20 per cent below the standard gi ade of the gauge which it purpor:s to be. These wires had been bought by importers cheaper than the standard, or A grade, or even than the B grade, which is re cognised as being about 8 per cent below A grade. This, of course, gives such importers a great advan tage in quoting prices. Tests were made of both British and German netting by the Customs Department., In every case the British netting passed the test, and was found to be true to description. Some of the German netting failed in the ex amination, and that netting is being detained, pending further action. ,

How It Was Done. A test mobilisation • of 30,000 volunteers kept the authorities en gaged while the gun running was being carried out Volunteers patrolled 30 miles of the coast road between Belfast ana X-arne Harbor.

After landing a large portion of her " rifles the Mount Joy resailed. A coastguardsman who sighted a suspicious vessel off Donaghadee dropped dead as he rushed to notify his superiors.

A Clever Swindler. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914

A Clever Swindler. , A, young man named Frank Mouran has been sentenced at Wangaratta to three months' im prisonment on each of three charges, of obtaining money by false pre: tenc'es. A list of several previous convictions against accused --was produced. Mouran has had many experiences, but the most successful venture re sulted when he. ''carried the war into the enemy's camp '' .figuratively speaking. Some time ago he visited a Goulburn Y.al ley,.town,; called up on the Sergeant of police there and introduced himself . as Revenue Detective Burvett (a relative of the well known detective of that-.name.) He said he wanted'; to catch a man seven or eight miles from, the town, for sly grog selling, and induced the sergeant to hire a buggy and accom pany him to the house. On the way out he borrowed 5/ from the ser geant to purchase liquor (as the law required.) The visit was entirely suc cessful and ample evidence was ob tained for several charges of sly grog -selling. The. sergeant ,d...

" Australia is faced by such a com: bination of , favorable factors that a record year. 'of prosperity in 1914 is almost certain. The rain fall and the prices of wool and mut ton make it certain that the squat ters and pastoral companies will benefit. The financial interests in London have been making heavy purchases lately of Australian pas toral and, agricultural securities. There is still an excess of buyers. " Further advances are probable, as the dividends are likely to be higher. Some companies are known to _be lpoking for additional estates as a means of employing their accu mulated resources. ^

REAL BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

i zs ^ r* I,* >\ I.a .■ \ ~ ^; -• REAL BROKEN HEARTS. The late Sir George Paget, -in one of his lectures which were published some years ago under the editorship of his . son, stated that in most cases where death is attributed to "broken heart" no rupture of that organ has actually taken place, although un doubtedly mental troubles • do fre quently cause disease of the body. He mentioned an actual case of broken heart which was cited by Dr. J. K. Mitchell, of the Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia. In an early period of his medical career, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sail ing from Liverpool to one of the American ports. He became on very good terms with the captain, who was* eagerly „ anticipating the return voy age because then he was to be mar ried to the lady of his choice. He had brought many costly jewels to pre sent to the lady as bridal gifts. So often did the captain discourse upon the lady and her charms that Dr. Mitchell 'became wearied, and avoid ed ...

Thrft. Sir Archibald Geikie, who has re ceived ' the coveted Order of Merit, is a great collector of Scottish anec dotes. One of his best is about a funeral in Glasgow, where a stranger took a seat in one of the mourning coaches. The other three occupants of the car riage were rather curious to know who he was, and at last one of them began to question him. The dialogue went like this: "Ye'll be a brither o' the corp?" "Na, I'm na brither o' the corp." "Weel, ye'll .be his cousin?" "Na, I'm no' a cousin." "At ony rate, ye'll be a frien' o' the /corp?" , "Na, I'm no' that either; Ye see, , I've no' been very weel masel'," the stranger explained complacently, "an' my doctor has ordered me carriage exercise, so I thocht this wad be the cheapest way to tak' it!"
