KORONG VALE STATION. Some Recent Improvements A Peep into the Future. Following the erection of the handsome new station buildings at Korong Vale and the entire re modelling and extension of the yard, the newest methods of sig nalling have been installed, which establishes the Korong Vale station 011 a stains of especial importance, making it the largest signal inter locking- station north, of Heiidigo, and one of the most replete in the State. The spending of ,£-10,000' by the Government in bringing the station np-to-date shows the inr portance which it places upon Korong Va!e, both as a traffic and a trading centre, and this will do much towards bringing about a re cognition of the town as a place of importance, which, from the in crease of buildings and the growth of population,' it is rapidly be coming.

Since last wo assembled, the hand of time lias described another cycle, and we find ourselves in the New Year. The New Year often appeals to us as a fitting time for new adjustments in our characters and manners, when we, metaphori cally speaking, begin to turn over a new leaf. Novel ideas, and new resolves, seem to be the natural concomitants of this new birth. How many tilings are postponed till the New Year, and how many half formulated plans are crystaliscd during its process. Yet when it wears oil towards its close how few of us are really satisfied with what we have done after all we had a...

Public Notices. WE DO NOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS. Treating a tooth that has to be filled ia an operation demanding great care and patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will abscess and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time. Until we are absolutely certain that the cavity is " right," we do not begin filling. Then our expert knowledge operates.

Commonwealth Powers. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 6 January 1916

Commonwealth Powers. The failure of the State Parlia ment to give effect to the agree ment entered into by >ir Alexander Peacock with the Prime Minister of Australia, for the temporary transference of powers to the Commonwealth, eati hardly meet with the approval of any but the most partisan liberal. It is known with what dread the threatened strife associated with the taking of the Referenda was an ticipated, covered by the cry that power was needed to enable the Government to more effectively pursue a vigorous war policy. Appeals to Mr Fisher not to pre cipitate the campaign was resuk less, but though the Kx-Prime Minister was unrelenting his suc cessor was found more reasonable, as also move farseeing, a'ud offered the compromise mentioned as the price of abandonment. This was accepted by the Governments of all the States as a fair basis of settle ment, but Parliament refused to sanction it, and why ? We can understand liberals being loth to depart with any of the powers they ...

NORTHERN DISTRICT STANDARD with which is incorporated the Boort Standard, KorongValc Lancc. and Qu'am batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, Jauuaiy 6. The Wide Bay Election. The result of the Wide Bay elec tion is a splendid vindication of the patriotic policy steadily pur sued by Mr Cook ana his parlia mentary supporters. Some fifteen months ago, Mr l-'isher carried Wide Bay with a majority oi con siderably over 7,HOG votes. Last week there was a fierce struggle for the seat, the Liberal candidate taking the lead when more than 25,001) votes had been counted. No vital issue depended on the winning or losing of the constituency. Mr Hughes has too large a majority in the House of Representatives to be embarrassed by the loss of a supporter. Mr Cook has no desire to suffer office without power for a second time. None the less, tue revulsion of feeling shown is- sig nificant, perhaps the more signifi cant because it simply stresses the ver...

A FEW SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 6 January 1916

A FEW SUPERSTITIONS. I When your nose Itches something will soon happen to vex you. When your right eye itches it is a sign of good luck; when your left eye, of bad luck. When rooks desert a rookery, it forebodes the downfall of the family on whose property it is. A spider descending upon you from the roof is a token that you will soon have a legacy from a friend. It i3 a good omen for swallows to take possession of a place and build, their nests around it; while it is un propitious for them to forsake a place which they have once tenanted. , The magpie Is deemed a bird of evil omen. Its unluckiness has been ac counted for by Its being the only bird which did not go into the ark with Noah. If you have any white marks on your nails, commonly called "gifts," you may expect to get as many pre sents as there are marks, as soon as these get up to the nail ends In the course of their natural growth. A new shoe, placed upon a table for Inspection, will lead the ' wearer Into unlucky paths....

"When wo arrived at the station," he said, "wo were taken to a motor cart by a sahib in civilian ciothes whom everybody addressed as col onel, and wherever wo drove ail day tho whole of the traffic was stopped and we were allowed to go on so a: not to waste any time, and nowhere was any money or passes asked for or shown. "Sahib, this was a great honor. In Hindustan they do not stop the car riages of big men to let little 111011 pass. "And never, sahib, have I seen so many vehicles, great and small. In some places four lines of carriages pass continually, and 1 did not observe a single collision in the whole day or any injury to the passengers who were walking' in the streets.
