Noxious Trades By-Law. The mandate ot the Public Board of Health to compel Rich mond. Council to make a by-law for regulating .noxious trades in Richmond has caused the manu facturers to rise up in strong pro test. A representative gathering comprising tanners, foap manu facturers, butchers, etc., attended the Public Works Committee of the Council on Monday evening. They said that the businesses were now being conducted in a manner that gave little cause for objection, every necessary precaution being taken to prevent offensive odors, or the carrying on ol operations in any way prejudical to health. The regulations at present were suffi cient to meet all requirements in this respect. If the proposed by law was brought into operation its drastic provisions would] entail considerable expense and greatly hamper the industrial progress of the district. A majority of the Councillors are in full sympathy with the manufacturers, and the City Solicitor will be instructed to take the necessa...

For the Little Men and Women of . our- Churcli. .. Not little because of what yon can do, but only because of. what you are at present, The little ones can do much. During the month I was asked-to go to my old Charge at Numurkah to take part in the opening of their beautiful Church Hall. The story of how that came to be built shows what"TiEe~little ones, carv do. Some years back; when - everything had to be done in the Church, Mrs Baird suggested to the Mission Band that they ought to begin and work for a Sunday School. ' They took up the suggestion and went about telling others they were going to build a Sunday School. They started holding a little Garden Fail' every year, and gradually the bigger people began to see that they meant busi ness, and so joined in, and to-day there is a splendid up-to-date School, room built by the " little ones." Will you keep in mind July 19th. We are going to have a Service in the Church that morning which is altogether for you. We'll let :the big p...
Church Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 July 1914
Church Jottings. From '' Richmond Presbyterian,!' monthly organ of- the Lennox street Presbyterian Church " The Pastor's Letter. My Dear People, The month of June has shown an encouraging- response on your part, for the. congregations are creeping up. Unfortunately the month has been a broken one for-me through the illness of Mrs Baird, yet some thing has been done. Most of the members have been called on in company with the Elders, one of the many parts of our work in which we miss the active co-operation of Mr Byers. Some have been missed, these will be caught up early. Such names as have been handed in as adherents or new-comers have been looked up for the most part., The Sunday School work has been "engaging my attention, the most pressing problem being accommo dation for the Infant Class. A suggestion has been made to. thej Board, which, if carried out, would partly obviate this difficulty. The Teachers have also undertaken to meet after the Prayer Meeting for a Teacher's Prepa...

Literary-Association. ? The meetings of the pastmonth have proved to be most successful, and the attendances have been satisfactory. Nevertheless, let us quietly whisper that the'' Organ Room is capable of holding at least 20 more, and we have the Sunday School-Hall to fall back on in the event of overcrowding. Special mention must be made of- the lecture by Mr Matthew Baird, M.L.A. This lecture ex ceeded expectations, both in merit and attendan ce. We were pleased to see many strange faces- present -who knows but what this may materially benefit the Church as a whole-and we would take this opportunity of thanking members of our own congregation for the splendid response made by them to our invitation to be present that evening. The coming month is again well catered for, and the usual hearty invitation extended to one and all to come and join us. We regret the departure of Mr and Mrs Anderson and family from our midst. Mr Anderson : was a valned worker in the Church, filling the of...
