A MODEST NOTE. Reginald de Koren recently told a pretty story in praise of modesty. " A group of tourists," h'e said, "visited in Bonn Beethoven's house. One of the tourista, a girl of twenty or so, sat down at Beethoven's piano and played the 'Moonlight Sonata' none too well-Beethoven's own work in his own room, on his own piano i "'When the girl had finished she arose and said to the old caretaker : " 'I suppose lots of famous music inns have been here and playedl on this instrument ?' " 'Well, miss,' the caretaker ans wered, gravely, 'Paderewaki was here last year, and his friends urged him to play, hut he shook his Ihead and S'"No ; 'nl not worthy." ' "

COLLECTION OF RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 31 October 1912
COLLECTION OF RATES. At the Werribee Shire Council meeting last Saturday, Cr. Sex ton moved that the rate collector visit Footscray for the purpose of receiving rates. Cr. Robinson seconded the motion. Cr. Agar thought they were establishing a':bad" prededent"'as all parts of the shire would ex pect the rate collector to call for their rates. Cr. Shaw seconded the motion, and suggested the rate collector should also visit Little River, and collect rates at the Me chanics' Institute. Cr. Brown'e approved of the motion, and the rate collector could gather in the dog fees at same time. The president also favored the idea. The rate-collector, who was asked for his opinion, stated that his visits should be made at the beginning of the year. . . Cr. Canny said that the best time to call for rates was the Monday after pay day. • It was resolved that the rate collector visit West Footscray on the. first Monday in February, March and April, and Little River in February and March.

We~ rib~l '$li ir Bannutur. WE\1Erf6P, kTIVURBDAY, OCT. 81 Letters posted at the Werribee railway station will be taxed, from to-morrow, that is a "tuppeny" stamp will have to be affixed to them. The Fisher Government is becoming noted for its vagaries. One of their number has said that they are marching to' their Sedan. We believe him. The bush capital, rails for the-- transcontinental railway, etc.. etc., point that way, Corio is a Liberal con stituency and the next election should prove that -fact. In the meantime the residents of Werri bee should hold a public meeting objecting to this absurd taxation, and ask Mr. Ozanne to assist providing the " Kawkus" will allow him.

FAN FASCINATION. No nation has mastered the art of the fan more than the Japanese. They hold their fans in as dainty a manner as possible. The Spanish girl, too, can dance very prettily, with a rose in her mouth and a fan in her hand. Nor must the Frenchwomen he forgotten in the matter of fans, and in Paris hall-rooms fans made of flowers are very popular. , These fans cost any thing up to £5. B13t you must go to New York if you. want to buy at real ly costly fan. The society woman across the ocean will pay .C90 for an ordinary fan, and greater sums are frequently expended.
