Judge" Bevan has been in the Terri tory for 20 months, and has taken keen interest in its development. The Northern Territory question, he said, was no more a party matter than de fence. If Australia was going to hold the North she must develop it, because it was unreasonable to suppose that either by domestic or international taw she could retain such country if it were not effectively occupied. At the thres hold were huge Eastern nations, with their teeming populations. If Aus tralia did not do something with the Territory it seemed inevitable that they would. "What impressed him most in his ear lier experiences of the country wag the fact that it had not been occupied long a...

You remember the story I wrote about the man who married the wrong woman? •'Well, when that was sent back to me for the third time, with one of the beastly printed notices . they always send, I sat down and thought things out, and hit on the plan of having an editor down for the.week-end. At first Auntie would not hear of it, of course. I had my own way, and he is coming this very afternoon! But I am going on too fast, and must hark back a bit. After I had persuaded Auntie to look at things from my point of view, she suddenly took all the wind out of my sails by remarking that I did not know any editor to ask.
