W. AND M. R. ASSOCIATION. In the football field in bhe Western and Moira Association matches, Ha thafia visited Barm ih on Wednesday last and lost the match by one goal. Ib was a good game, wrll contested, and on points the best team won, A feature of tha match was that the supporters of bhe Nathalia team made a rally and had the players conveyed to the ground in motor cars. A big advance on district locomotion in less thanhdf a century. Some 30 odd years ago vehicles of any kind were scarce.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 31 July 1914
EDITORIAL. On Tuesday nest wilt be the opening of the Diocesan SYNOD afc Wangaratta. As stated before in this column, it is the gathering together of Bishop, clergy and lay representatives once a year to pass legislation for the management of the Church in our own Diocese. Besides, this we have Provincial Synod, in Victoria, and also General Synod, representing the whole Chnrch in Australia. Lay members are elected triennielly in every parish, and should there be more than one nomi nee, a vote is taken of all male parishion' era at the election. A Bill is to be brought in at this Synod to further amend the " Assembly Act" to enable women also to vote at the election of lay repre sentatives. Another Bill which will most likely be passed will amend the liemoval of Clerks Act. The Act at present gives the Bishop absolute power of removing any clergyman in the interests of a parish without it being necessary for him to formulate any charge. Under the new Act the Bishop will only be able...

Nathalia Agricultural Society. The ordinary monthly meeting of the Society was held on Saturday last in the Public Hall. The President (Mr. W. Leaf) occupied the chair. Correspondence. From Oakes Bros., asking that ac- tion be taken by the society to secure the disqualification of unsound mares and sires being placed in the stud book. Mr. J. McKenzie said that mares and their progeny were already entered in the stud book. He did not see that they could take any action. The President said the matter had been dealt with at the convention. There was a great difference of opin- ion. One speaker had pointed out that one of his neighbors had an un- certificated horse that cost £500, while another had a horse with a certificate only worth £50. The high priced horse would be barred if the action asked were taken. The vote was a close one and no action was taken. Mr. McDonell said no action should be taken in the matter. If it became law it would inflict great hardship in some cases. Horses ...

WHY IT IS SO COMMON. The strenuous modern life we lead often upsets the digestive systam. Then, too, worry, overwork, anxieties of various sorts, excitement, late hours, trying cli matic conditions, lack of exercise, or coo violent exercise, are each and all capab'e of bringing abont a deranged condition of the stomach. Add these to excessive tea drinking, to which many of us must plead guilty, and you see clearly enough why indigestion is so commoD. To avoid indigestion, and its distress ing symptoms, yon must take an oc casional dose of Mother Seigel's Syrup. But to banish indigestion and its health destroying effects, its pains and discom forts, you must take a regular, course of Mother Seigel's Syrup. There isn't a remedy in existence that can cure you at once if you have been suffering for long time, but quick relief and eventual restoration to good health are certainly in the powers of Mother Seigel's Syrup, i and usually follow its use. | Of that there is no doubt. Tens of th...
