TO THE EDITOR. SIrn,-The thanks of the community are owing to thl.! " Helrald" for Its sublender in last week's issue on our water supply. The people of Tntura must he very subissivro to pay 2s. in the £ for dirty stuff which probably brings disease to their homes. The reticula tion of the town was a forward movement, but we want water to send through the pipes, and not liquid mud. Cannot our Conulnis sioners move in the matter? I nn aware these gentlcemen are hinampered for want of money, and the government has buttoned up its breeches pocket. Still there should be siufll cient public spirit anlmongst residents of Taturn to raise the funds in some manner, or at least guarantee sufitcient to pay interest onil a loan say of £500. We must have filter beds to complete the scheme which has begun. Credit is no dloubt due to the gentlemen who have been the means of introducing the water supply to tihe present stage, but as it is almost useless niow they should go on and complete the schem...

CORRESPONDENCE. --- [We do ot necessarily cadorse the opinions expressed by oar correspondlcnts.] OUR WATER SUP2LY. TO THE EDITOR. Smn,-As a traveller who often visits Tntura I am pleasul you have taken notice of the town water supply. I feel constrainal to write becauose there is little doubt, by a smnall and judicious expenditure, the water could be purifined souliciently to allow of it xbeing usal for ordinary dlomestic Ipurposes. So far as tile Trust has gone it has done well, but another step is ielcited ill ordelr to complete the schemet , and render it a boon to riesidents. Just at preselnt the want of good water is not felt, as every householder has a tank; but after the hot weather approaches there will be an outcry. Settling ipondtls would clear the water to a certain extent, but filter beds are really nee lde. Even if there was no surface drainage into the suplply the water cannot be carriedl in an open clllhannel for many miles without being polluted. As health is of the...

SKETCHER. Tea and Coffee. Historical Notice of the Introduction of These Beverages. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894

SKETCI-H R. Tea and Cofiee. Historical Notice of the Introduc tion of These 3evorages. It might be imagined, from the existence of a coffee room in every hotol, inn, or tavern of any pretentions in the British Isles, that the use of cofeo is mooh more extended among us than is really the coe. In Franco she eunsumption of coffee is ton times and in the United States live times greater that that of tea, while in the United Kingdom the annual consumption of tea is nearly five pounds per head of the entire population, while that of coffee is less than onopound per head. Three explanations have been sug gested by experts for this seeming anomaly. The tfirst is a belief that coffee is heating and nmore suited to a dry than to a moist climate; the second, the heavy taxation to which coffllee was subjected by lMr. Pitt and remained in force, with slight modifications until, in 1872, iMr. Lowe, then Chancellor of the Exohequer, reducedl the duty to 1.s. per owt. and 2d. per pound for the bil...

Only three maclhincs competed, which were from the follow ing makers :--Messrs J. Nicholson & Co., Mr J. Munro, and Messrs T. Robinson & Co. Thie trial took place on the farm of Mr Greggory, and the awards were afterwards made by ballot among the farmers present. There were 86 papers issued, and of these 30 were in favor of Messrs J.

THE iKYMiiAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. -0-- FRIDAY, . JULY 20, 1894. JUDGING by current events the Nine teenth Century bids fair to die in more tremendous convulsions than marked its birth. The closing period of the last century was epoch-making. The American War of Indcpendence was succeeded by the volcanic outburst of the Fronch Revolution. The Irish Rebellion, as it was called, added to the horrors, and then the sanguinary star of Napoleon rose above tile horizon. For nearly a quarter of a century Europe was deluged in blood. In many eases the old landmarks of civilization were swept away before the tempestuous out burst of human passions, but even amidst the saturnalin of slaughter the principles of liberty took firmer root. America first threw down the gauntlet, and the now great republic was forenmost to proclaim the gospel of no taxation without representation. French patriots, almost despairing of their country, aided the rebellious subjects of Great Britain in ...

S'cl larA in any scheme or project whichl has for its object to do away with the hard. ships of life and bring about equality amonrpet men through the instrumentality of the State, Anrurec is incompatible with courteous frankness of manner. It has been truly said that nothiug so much prevents our being natural as the desire of appearing so. OniAT efforts from great motives is the bent definition of a happy life. The easiest labor is a burden to him who has no motiove for perlorming it. O(r.r by labor can thought be made bealthy, and only by thought can labor he madeo Ihappy; and the two cannot be separated with impunity.
