I certainly am very far from hose tile to the Act, but am very hostile to the admi.isttra ion of the Act in the Sydney head office, and if, as Mr. Pike would wish as to understand that his services have been so necessary to obtain information required by the Act, then I am very hostile to his views, or the information he has supplied, and would recommend the authorities to look up. someone else. He asks " What will be the fate of the Act if the Reform party come into power ?"

Garden and Field Calendar for August, 1904. (Bbl A Lansdowlne, Seedrsnan, Goldburin.) Tim season is now advancing,, and growth will start in many orops and plants, and large areas of many seeds can" be sown. Let all land be well and deeply worked and well iantiured.

The weather will be changeable and severe at times; rough winds, frosts, snow, and rain, warmer at times, and some thunder weather likely, should westerly or tropical disturbances be met by sea winds.

IMPORTANT TO INTENDING VOTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 2 August 1904
IMPORTANT TO INIENDING VOTERS. THE Returning Officer has drawn our at tention to the operations of Section 22 of the Parliamentary Elections (amendment) Act No. 1 of 1904 which defines the quali fications of electors to vote. Sub-section 3 of that Section reads as follows :-" An elector who has changed his or her residence from the district electorate for which he or she is enrolled to another district electorate shall not on that account be debarred from voting at an Election for the 'district for which he or she is enrolled until a period of one month has elapsed from such change of residence." It is clear from this that persons so situated, that is, who have been residing out of an electorate for one month, cannot vcte in such district for which they hold electors' rights and in which they are en rolled. They are simply disqualified by their own negligence to obtain transferred rights or enrollment on the rolls of the electorate within which they now reside. This applies also to ...

Hints to Eleootors. Wri~n voting on Saturday next strike out the name of the owndidate for whom you do not whisi to vote, leaving on the..ballot paper only the name of the candidate you wish to see returned. Beyond striking out the name of the candi date you do not wish to see returned, do not make any mark whatever on the ballot paper. You must leave one n .meoaly standing. If you leave more your vote will be informal and will be wasted. At the Federal elections in December voters placed a oross opposite the name of the can-. didate for whom they wished to reoord: their votes. This must not be done on Saturday, as the methods5 differ in the manner ex. plained.

The brilliant Holman, who is regarded as a certainty by his strong following has been well received in all parts of the electorate; but he is opposed by a man whose name has for many ydars been respected in that dis trict, and who will have the snpport of all Mr. Fitzpatrick's old friends who were' always able to equal, the labour vote ip the Junee end. Strong. man as he is, the old, favonrite.will iun Holman close, for there is nq name more resp?cted inCootamundra than that of John Barnes; and there are still many people who' don't like to swop horses whilst crossing the, stream. .Information to hand leads nus to believe that there may be a sur Prise in store for the Holmanites.

There was not seating room for all present and several were obliged to stand both at the back of the hall and on the gallery. The speaker has a fairly glib tongue and with a eloquent strain of oratory and a thorough grasp of his subject held the audience literally in the palm of his hand during the hour and a half hliicth he spoke. The Mayor occupied the chair, and after a few preliminary remarks Mr. ,Griffin rose amidst applause. His primaly remark was that he noticed that a very great percentage of the audience was composed of women, to whom he always ardently and strenuously advocated the ex tension of, the franchi...
THE LABOR PARTY AND WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 2 August 1904
THE LABOR PARTY AND WAGES. SPEAKING at Sacs Soaci on Wednesday evening Mr. Carruthers said that the labour party's policy was to scratch on the surface skin-deep remedies, not knowing what was at' the bottom of the industry or social problem, and of course its remedies could not solve it. The labour patty had stated that one of its achievements had been to better the condition of the working classes. He denied that, and for proof one had only to look at the condition of the country to day and compare it with the ptoeperity exist ing 13 years ago, whenuthe labour party first entered Parliament. He quoted late official figures to show that females were dis plecing men in factories and workshops,'and accepting much lower wages, .ar.ioomany women were being forced' to entxe.into com petition with meb. Far better would it be if thes' women had husbands working for them while they -attonded'to domestic duties. (Applause). The reason for that stateio! things was because it was becoming mor...
Baby's Sensitive Skin. ZAM-BUK SOOTHES AND HEALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 2 August 1904
Baby's Senrlitive Skin. ZAM-BUK SOOTHES AND HEALS. A IAITY'S soft, delicate skin often becomes very sensitive, burning, irritated and inflam ed, as shown by the chafing, eruptions, sore ness and itching. This condition causes not only agony to the little one, but brings on a lot of worry and annoyance for its mother and nurse. Powder and puff will not more than temporarily allay the pain; and as a consequence, when this resort is adopted, the itching condlition is aggravated, and all the more difficult to control. Zim-Buk, being so pure .and wholesome, and containing only the finest juices and balsams, is the most satisfactory preparation that can be recom mended for res'oring th3 young skin to a healthy condition. Evidence that this is so will be found in the statement of Mr. Gra ham Weatherley, scenic artist, Leiohhardt, Sydney. This gentleman writes :-" My wife has derived great benefit from your Zam puk Balm in cases of chapped hands and face, and has proved' it invaluable in th...
