Municipal Association of Victoria, helcflast week, the Milk and Dairy Supervision xYct was one of the matters considered. Mr. S. S.

It was explained by Mr. Cameron that, owing to the difficulty in obtaining a sufficient number of competent supervisors, it woul...

THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. DAIRY SUPERVISION. MUNICIPAL RESPONSIBILITIES. STATEMENT BY DB. CHEItRY. Some time ago the Minister for Agriculture (Mr. Swinburne) issued a circular to country municipalities, ask ing them whether they proposed to exercise their right under the Milk and Dairy Supervision Act and undertake its administration within their bound aries. Failing this, the department of agriculture would, in accordance with the act, administer the law in all por tions of the state to which the new law applied. The director of agriculture (Dr. Cherry) states that up to the pre sent very few municipalities had in timated what they proposed to do. The act, Dr. Cherry explaiues, would oper ate as regards milk areas—that is, in metropolitan and suburban centres— from its inceptioD, and those districts would be, as a matter of course, admin i istered by "the department. ¡ Dr. Cherry assumes that country ¡ municipalities are waiting to see how . the administration of the department ; will...

MAKING OTHER MEN ENVIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 1 March 1906
MAKING OTHER MEN ENVIOUS, No man can be judged a good hus band who has not been studied in his own home. Profuse courtesy and elab orate care of a wife when at friends' houses or on days of outings may be assumed for the occasions, hat when he gets into his own home a man is in his everyday surroundings, and then be shows his true self. If he gives thought to the little trifling comforts and pleasures of his wife he is to her a far better husband than if he made handsome money provision for her, but neglected the hundred and one lit tle courtesies that malee the wheels of life run smoothly. The man who is loud and bombas tic, who domineers over and grumbles at everything the servants do, who frightens his children, and who struts about trying to impress everyone with the fact that he Is the master, is hot the man who makes a good husband, no matter how attentive he mr.y seem before strangers. A husband should,.: " be a blessing to his wife, and a. tern to his neighbors, and though '...
A Colossal Dock. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 8 March 1906
A Colossal Dock. . By the end of 1907 the port of Ham burg will possess the greatest floating dock in the world. It is now under construction in the shipyard of Messrs. Blohm and Voss, at Hamburg, and is to have an accommodation "capacity of 35,000 tons. Its length will be 520 feet, so that the largest warship and ocean liners will be able to use it. The dock will be eventually towed to Brunshau sen, on the Lower Elbe, where it can be utilised by the German fleet in case of war. The capacity of the largest floating dock at present in existence does not exceed 17,500 tons. ¡ Canada has forests which, at the present rate of consumption of timber for paper, would, it Is calculated, sup ply the world with paper pulp for more than 800 years. Tho conscience has to do, not with fitness or expediency or advantage, but with right or wrong. Hope ls the sweetest friend that ever kept a distressed soul company.

Dawn Refused to Appear. - u m good at the Midland town, and various tradesmen were pressing the management for payment. As a last appeal to an unappreciative public a play, "For Honor and for England," was put on. One scene was played in semi-darkness. The hero, sitting in a log hut, was waiting for daybreak, destined to bring him deliverance from his woeB or disaster. "The dawn, at last!" he exclaimed. "Bright Phoebus gilds yonder moun tain peak!" "Bright Phoebus gilds yonder mountain peak!" he repeated in louder tones, annoyed that the cue to turn an the footlights had not been noticed. Still the darkness continued. "Bright Phoebus gilds yonder moun tain, I say!" he roared. "Well, guv'nor," came in clear tones from the gasman at the wings, "I rec kon you'd better git along without Phoebus. They've cut the blessed gas off!"

KNOWN AS MEPHISTO'S RING. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 8 March 1906
KNOWN AS MEPHISTO'S RING. A strange story is that which at tributes the misfortunes of Spain to the possession by its king of a ring of deadly maleficence. "Mephisto's ring," as it is called, is a gold ring set with a large emerald, the centre of which has been hollowed out and contains a ruby, surrounded with tiny diamonds. It came Into Spain (no one knows whence) in the reign of Phillip II., and following its arrival came the suc cession of calamities which brought about the decline of Spanish power. To those who owned the ring it seemed to bring personal disaster, and at. the time of the Spanish-American War it was presented by the Spanish royal family to a church, possibly in the hope that its baleful influence would thus be neutralised. The church was burned to the ground, but the ring was saved, and this time given to a museum. The museum was afterwards struck by lightning twice, and the re tuïn of the ring to the royal family was followed by the defeat of the Spanish army and...
