A SPECIAL TRAIN. TO CARRY GOODS. EOCKHAMPTOX. January 18. A somewhat peculiar incident of railway management occurred on the afternoon of December 2-ith last, and as a result it is gathered tllat the Christmas legacy to the Department has not been wholly one of peace and goodwill.

INFANT MORTALITY. DAME CAMPBELL'S REPORT. BRISBANE, January 20. The report, submitted to the Common wealth by Dame Janet Campbell, fol lowing a survey of conditions in Aus tralia, revealed that for Australia as a whole, the total maternal death rate in 1928 was 5.98 for every 1000 babies borii alive. This was not only very ex cessive in itself, but it was the highest ou record since 1911. Since 1922 the death rate showed a steady and al most uninterrupted rise — a circum stance which must cause considerable anxiety and- disquietude. The mater nal death rate in' Australia, as a whole, was higher 4-hau in London.. The report adds that in England the authorities are satisfied that their maternal death rate is considerably higher than it should be and thfcre is still greater reason to be gravejy'c^ji-,' cerncd at the excessive risk a6sdia§ij$, with child bearing which the mothers,, of the.
