I AS OTHERS SEE US i REFERENCE IX PAR LI AM EXT. ! A LABOR .MEMBER'S 'VIEW OF CASTLE MAI XE. "A WORX-OUT DIGGIXG-S." In the (Legislative Assembly last ' week, two loan bills were introduced, in which Castlemaine is interested. In the Water Supply Loan Application Bill provision was made for the ex penditure. of a large sum of money in the Colibau district waterworks; the amount included the sum of £1450 for I a pipe-head reservoir at Expedition j Pass. This is to fulfil the promise of i the Commission to give Castlemaine a purer supply. The amount was not questioned in any way, and there is 'no doubt about the Bill passing through both Mouses of Parliament. This will bo good news for Castlemaine, and we understand that the worlt is already in progress.

CORRESPONDENCE OUR STREET TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 2 February 1914
CORRESPONDENCE OUR STREET TREES. Sir,—After an absence of a few months, I returned to Castlemaine last week. Resuming my favorite walks round the pretty little town, I was forcibly struck with, the withered appearance of so many of our beautiful street trees. Take for instance, Market Square, the very heart of the town. On the east side of the Market two trees are looking very jaded ami neglect ed, one on the footpath, the other in the reserve. On the opposite side the tree on the footpath, is beautifully green and healthy, and throws a magnificent shade under which weary people tired of shop ping are glad to rest on one"- of the seats so much appreciated, further along, the Square at the corner is another beautiful tree overshadowing the Patterson Me morial fountain. Passing into the reserve, almost opposite the Nat ional Bank are two trees so wither-i ed and neglected-looking that their recovery is doubtful unless attend ed to at once. On the south side of the reserve, near the II...

COLLISION AT BENDIGO TRUCKS RUSH INTO STOP BLOCK. RAILWAY PROPERTY DAMAGED. BENDIGO, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 2 February 1914
COLLISION AT BEND1GO imUCKS rush into stop block. railway property damaged. bendicro, Saturday. While shunting operations were in progress at Bendigo goods yard, this morning, a guard's van was badly damaged, about 3 yaxds of the permanent way were torn up, and a stop block was destroyed. A train had pulled out of lie sta tion, leaving some trucks to be un loaded in the siding' that gpes through the goods shed. Ad ditional trucks were then shunted up to the stationary ones, and, owing to the brakes not , being down, they dashed into the stop ♦block with great force* The guard's van rose several feet off the rails, but it regained the metals. If the truck had gone a few feet further it would have cap sized. Prompt action on the part of the shunters in applying the brakes prevented this. The axle of the guard's van was broken, and the grease boxes were torn off.

FACTS AND FANCIES. Queer Facts about Colours. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 2 February 1914
j i'ACTS AND FANCIES, Queer Facts about Colours. Experiments have been made to de termine what colour in a soldier's uni form is the least conspicuous to r,:; enemy. Of ten men, two were dressed in iigiit grey uniform, two in dark grey, two in green, two in dark blue, and two in scarlet. All were then or dered to march off, while a group ci officers remained watching them. The first to disappear in the landscape was the light grey, and next, surprising as it may seem, tho scarlet. Then fol lowed the dark grey, while "the dark blue and the green remained visible, long after all the others had disap peared. Experiments in firing at blue and red targets proved that blue could be more easily seen at a distance than red.
