(Loud cheering.) The position and pros pects of our mechanics have always ap peared to me in the highrsb degree unsatis factory ; large bodies of men continually idle, and unable, however willing, to find any regular or continuous occupation ; everything having the semblance of a local industry either struggling for bare exist ence or finding itself thoroughly drowned and extinguished by a flood of foreign im portations.

FIRE AT DENILIQUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 31 January 1896
FIRE AT DENIIIQUIN. The Hay Standard says : — ' At t' e inquusts on the late lira in Cressy-ttreet, Deniliquin, ib was shown that eodip. of the insurance companion adopt s---m- yathur peculiar tactics when fettling claims for damage done by fire. In two cases there were insurances of .£100 and £9& respectively. Absolutely the whole of tha property insured was destroyed, and both parties swore that their property was under covered. In one case it was stated that the loss over the insurance was £50, and in the other £100. It would, therefore, be naturally concluded that with the whole of the property destroyed there would be no difficulty in recovering the total amount of the insur ance, but it appears that the adjuster on his arrival proceeded at once to make a haggling bargain with the insured people. He succeeded in his endeavors In the case of the one insured for £100, he suc ceeded in beating the woman down to £85 odd, and in the £91 insurance a compromise of £60 10a. was...

A SNAKE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 31 January 1896
A SNAKE STORY. A lot of rivalry appears to exist tumng some country newspapers as to the tallest snake.yarn they can publish. However, a paper published in another town is responsible for the following . — Two men who are fossicking for gold on Shelly Beach went for a holiday at Christmas time, leaving: their pump and machine at Mr. Cunning's place. They returned by the last ateamer, and carried their machine back to the beacb, a distance of nearly three miles. The pump was fixed up. and one of the men stark d to work it; but although be was at it for nearly ten minutes, no water cJuld be obtained, and they were giving it up, when, to their surprise, a huge carpet snake, about 12ft. long, crawled out of the pump. The snake was quickly despatched, and having a gold-looking appearance, its destroyers opened the snake, and found nearly ioz of gold. We are informed that the snake used to follow the miner tj work, and watched the process of looking for gold, and we suppose that, having l...

We have had three weeks of roasting weather, regular red hot winds, such as I have experienced in South Australia 50 years ago, only it did not laat so long. It is quite a common thing for the glass to show from 115 to 120 in the shade. Last night was tbe hottest night I ever experienced. Moot of the people have deserted their beds and taken to the verandahs to try and sleep, but sleep is cut of the question, as the heat has continued so long that the house and every thing in it ia heated. A very heavy olap of thnnder passed over this place laat night, which caused the rain to drop for about two seconds and then suddenly stop, To-day at 2 pm. it is again thundering and cloudy, and there was just a' drop or two of rain on the houses to give us hope that the drought we have so long esperienced might break up.

PROTECTION AND FREETRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 31 January 1896
PROTECTION AMD FREETRADE. The Australian Star inviteB housekeepers 'to carefully study their household accounts ( with a view to seeing where the reduction under the new tariff comes in. A careful study of prices quoted for the last three or four years fails to show us any prospect of reducing the cost of living. What hope is there that under freetrade the best bakers ?' will be prepared to supply their customers ?with a 2lb. loaf of bread for 2|d. ? Yet that was done for some months during 1898, when, according to Mr. Reid and all . ' his satellites, the poor bread-winner was groaning under the imposition of an un necessary charge upon wheat and flour, Last year, wiih protection, as much flour could be purchased for 83. as can now be .- bought for lid. Where is the advantage 'of freetrade to a working man when such a result as this is shown? Where are the labour members standing by labour when they force the class they specially represent to pay more for the greatest needs of the h...
PREVENTION OF SUNSTROKE. SUGGESTIONS FOR TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 31 January 1896
PREVENTION OF SUNSTROKE. ? e- ? SUGGESTIONS FOR TREATMENT. A meeting of the Board of Health was held on 23rd, Professor Anderson Stuart presiding. The following suggestions for the pre vention and immediate treatment of sun stroke were issued for general information, viz. :— ' There are several varieties of sunstroke, but they all are due to excessive heat, though not necessarily to the immediate action of the sun's rays. They may occur during the night as well as by day. Those who suffer most are the intemperate, and next to them those whose health is dis ordered, or who are over-fatigued or de dressed. Prevention : It should be clearly understood that it is easier to prevent than to cure sunstroke, and that of all predis posing; cause?, undue indulgence in intoxi cating liquor is the most common and the most dangerous. It is therefore clear that the strictest moderation in the use o) alcohol in any form should be observed. It is also desireable to restrict the use of animal food. ...

Monday was the record day, the thermometer registering 117deg. in tha shade. Acute dysentery and other forms of sickness have been and are still very prevalent owing to extreme heat.

The little child was buried on Monday by its father's side in the Narandera cemetery.
