Booth, seconded hy Cr.i Cameron,'that tenders be called for erecting a verandah around the shire hall. Cr. Laidlaw objected to the expenditure of money for any such purpose, and con sidered the money could be much better spent, by removing some of the stumps on the main lines of road. After considerable discussion the matter was withdrawn, on the understanding that the whole of the building should be at the use of the coun cillors after next June. The engineer recommended that the em bankment adjoining the bridge over the Loddon, should be fenced on both sides, as in its present unprotected state, it was dan gerous.

At the Echuca P'olice Court last week John Rlowland Shelly, late superintendent of snagging operations, was charged with embezzling Government money while acting in his official capacity. The deficiency in his accounts was alleged to be £400. It ap peared from the evidence that a banking account was placed at defendant's dis posal .for payment of wages and the worlking expenses of the snag ing, and it was stated that he had a Farge dis discretion in such expenditure. In July he applied for and received £350 to expend in this way, but cheques drawn on the account for the crews were dishonoured for want of funds, though defendant sent rouchers to Melbourne crediting himself with payment of the wages outof the £350.

TREATMENT OF MEMBRANOUS CROUP. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 26 October 1877

TILEA.TLENT OF M1E31BRANOUS CITOUP. Dr. Walcher claims to hare had great suctcess in the treatment of membranous croup, both in its primary form and in the form which he regards as secondary to. diphtheria of the pharynx. He employs the alcoholic tincture of eucalyptus globulus. Prof. Gubler and Dr. Gimbert, of Cannes have shown that eucalyptol, the active prin ciple of the eucalyptus, has a special action on chronic catarrhs,- with muco-purulent secretion, especially when located in the lungs, and that tlheresinous principle is ge nerally eliminated throu h these organs.Dr. Walcher employed it nwth benefit in doses from ? to 5 drachms per diem, in cases of chronic bronchitis in old people, and in a case of pulmonary gangrene that recovered. Hle then tried it in several cases of croup, and it succeeded beyond his expectations; in one case, a ease of the entire trachea,and of the first and second bronchial bifurcations was coughed up, and the patient, a child five years of age, recov...

ABOTJT BEES. f " The baby-bee destined only. for work finds herself,oa emerging from th'ecgg, an inhabitant of one of those six-sided cells which appears so proportioned as in somie measure to limit her growth, and thus pre vent her from attaining her full develop ment. ,To this outward restriction is super added an inward check in the quality of the food administered by her nurses. Instead of the royal jelly,' that stimulating and nutritious extract prepared only . for the queen, her infancy is supported on the simple fare of bee-bread, which, while it siflices to bring to maturity every useful endowment of activity, affords no food for the develop ment of the sensual and vindictive passions, and with all these smothered in the cradle, Sour worker comes forth matured in all apian : excellence-of modest habits, a nun among I insects, and avery ' sister of charity ' among - her fellows."

It is to he hoped the change iwill be Beneficial, though the rest he is get oing is more ideal than real.

THE DEFENCE OF CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 26 October 1877

STHE DEFENCE OF CONSTANTI NOPLE. The Arqus correspondent writes :-The lines between Bayak Tehebrinege on the Sea of Marrmora and Derbros on the Black Sea, which have so long been planned for the defence of Constantinople, are on the very verge of completion. The guns are ready for them, and in the improbable event of an advance on Constanti i nople, during the present campaign, these works will save it from capture. " But," it will be asked, "if the Tur kish armies are badly beaten in B3ul garia and in the Balkans, which is still possible, if not very probable, how is the Porte to find men for the defence of the works at Gallipoli, or of those between the Sea of Marmora and the Black Sea ?" The answer to this is easy. As the Porte no longer feels any un easiness as to the attitude of Persia, it is bringing to Constantinople all the regular troops of the district of Bagdad, and is replacing them by National Guard. It will do the same in every part of Asia which is notaffected by the ...
