There was a large attendance at the Paruria Institute last Saturday •evening to hear an address on ths Commonwealth Powers BiJJ by Mr. T. C. Stott, M.P. The chairman of the Brown's Well District Coun cil (Mr. iA. Petch) presided. Fre quent interjections added zest to the meeting, and livened the speak er to an eloquent address. It was early evident that Mr. Stott was not favourable to handing over euch powers without a referendum of the people. There were, he said, two vital demo ■ ■cratic principles involved in the Bill.

Rover.. This fact was learned in the course of a chat with Renmark's amateur entomologist, Mr. Undsay Humph ries this Week.

There are several acres of pear on Mr. Rover's prop erty, and the result of the insects' first season (the eggs were first in troduced into the patch i...
