TAXING THE PRINTER. CORRESPONDENCE ( WVE do not necessary identify ourselves with opinions expressed by our correepondente.) (To the Editor). The new tariff includes a number the printer to pay. Of course pro-) of new as well as increased taxes fec' tectionist papers will now feel a newt joy m living, as these taxes will enable them to test the physic thei have prescribed for other people. At the same time it is rather hard on the ordinary printer. The drought and the war has already given him enough to go on with. This applies with special force to many country district.' Increased taxes on print ing supplies and accessories have come at the ,-orst possible time. Perhaps the Government thinks that protection is a good way .to have a slap at the press. Friends and toes will suffer alike, but as it considers that the bulk of "the press is more or less hostile, its friends must pay up and look 'pleas Ant.

FEAR GOD ALONE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 January 1915
BY PASTOR RUSSELL. Text.-Isaiah xlii, , " ... Fear not, for I have redeemed thee." The speaker declared fear to be the bane of the world of mankind. It has much to do with sorrow, pain and death, he a.id. Fear is the outgrowth of sin. The hcly angels have no fear; their perfect confi dence in God and His arrangements for them precludes fear. Similarly, father Adam, before-he sinned, when he was in harmony with his Creator, knew no fear, but directly following his transgression we read that he was afraid, and tried to hide himself from God. Like wise, fear has to do with the dread of God, whioh is upon the wormd to-day. All who realise God's perfection realise also their own imperfection and un worthiness of Divine favor. Then super stitious fears are developed. The lov ing sympathy of the infinite Creator for His fallen creature is unrecognised. Fear paints phantoms, and attributes to the Almighty the characteristics of a demon. When the Great Teacher appeared amongst men He present...

Cause and Effect. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 January 1915
Cause andl Eflect. 'ITHE seasons cannot be regu lated so as to always ensure a liberal :harvest. But we may rest assured that if we desire a copious supply of beef and mut t'on, of wheat and fruit, we shall have to make it our business to encourage their production; or, at any rate, to abstain from discouraging it. It has been foolishly assumed that, if, at' any cost whatevelr we fostered the growth of city industries, the rural industries would take care of themselves, and in addi tion, would gaily bear any im posts that 'might be placed on them. With, the results of' this- `' laissez-faire " policy we are now confronted. ,Will we learn; the 'lesson ?

News and Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 15 January 1915
News an1d Notes. The "Times" urges the"' British Government to reconsider its decis-, ion not to give war information. It rays:-''The Empire is in no temper to fight behind a veil 'of mystery. it is a novel remarkable, and really' extravagant theory that a democracy; like ours linked with valiant self governing dominions should be ask-: ed to fight a war .for -existence 1With;' out being told what the Government is about." -' In an official statement, made on Wednesday regarding redfuction in train services it !was pointed but both' goods and passenger traffic showed a serious falling off. Unfortunately there was no indication that the 'po sition was likely to improve. The nmatter was having the consideration of the Commissioners, nothing defin ite as to the train services in the near future had .yet been settled: and in consequence, no details of changes proposed could be furnish ed.

Railway Alterations. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 15 January 1915
aillway Alterations. Dame rumor has been very busy lately regarding train alterations in the southern district, but at the present moment nothing can be di vulged regarding the proposed new time-table. It as however, certain that a number of important changes will be made on February 1st, and some of these will come to country' towns as a bombshell. It is rumor ed (and rumor has something to sup port it) that some of the branch lines now enjoying a daily service will have to be content with a train three times a week, and it is further stat. ed on good authority that the Cooma, mail will not run between Sydney and Goulburn. Cooma passengers will come from the m'etropolis by ordinary mail and tranship at Goul burn. It is said that the inter State traffic will not be affected by the alterations but the. service gener ally is being greatly shortened ow ing -to the falling off of the traffic. The railway revenue is going back to such an extent that the Commis sioners are simply driven t...
