KYNETON, SATURDAY. JAN. 10, 1914 RECENT PROSECUTIONS. The general public who have read the reports of the police prosecutions emanating from the Tylden district within the past eighteen months can hardly arrive at any other conclusion than that many of them have been trifling in the extreme, and that the law is to some extent being used as an instrument'not entirely of correc tion. The police arc under an obli gation to administer the law impar tially for the benefit of the entire community, and . the officer who strives to do so is deservedly entitled to public appreciation;.but there can be such a thing as a' too zealous dis charge ";6f" 'these functions,, the only effect; of.''which.will he the entailing of hardship upon the individual, and expense upon -the State, without any corresponding advantage to anyone.

CANADIAN V. NEW ZEALAND CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 13 January 1914

CANADIAN V. NEW ZEALAND CHEESE. A grocer at Southwick, Sunderland, England, recently made a curious dis covery. When cutting through a cheese, his cutting wire encountered some hard substance, and he was obliged to finish the halving process .with a knife. In the centre of the cheese he found a small tin box con taining threepence and a request that the finder would communicate with the New Zealand cheese manufactur er informing him whether the cheese was purchased as New Zealand or Canadian cheese. The tradesman has complied with the request, telling the New Zealand dairyman that the cheese was sold to him as Canadian produce. ______________ Postcard Seven Years Late. - A post-card despatched from Epsom in July, 1907. has just been delivered in Croydon, having taken nearly seven years to cover about eight miles. It contained a message asking whether a box of flowers had been received, and the card was clean and in good condition.
