NORTHERN TERRITORY. 1 THE PRESF;NT ADMINISTRATION. DRASTIC CHALNGES LIKELY. For some time past the Federal Govern ment has been looking closelyv into the nwethods of administering the affairs of the Ncrthern Territory. It is understod that the Ministry intends to make some drastic alterations, and Dr. Gilruth, the Adminis trator, .is being called to Melbourne. When he arrives the Minister for External Affairs (Mr. P. Glynn).will explain the intentions of the Government to him. The effort to promote agricultural settlement in the forth, it is said, will not be so vigorously carried out as has been the case in the )ast, but more attention will be devoted to developing the mining industry.

HEROINES OF rilE FILM. THEIR ADVENTURES R1tAVLE AND GAY. S (By Fredrick A. Talbot.) , "Can you swim, walk a tight rope, drive . an express engine, vault from a motor car when travelling at 60 miles an hour, stop runaway horses, wrestle with wild animals, and-" "Certainly!" S "Oh. that's ,' right, then. Now we'll see if you can act." Such might be the typical introductory conversation passing between a producer •and a new aspirant for the honors and glories.of the i;icture play heroine. It must be :admittod that the average film favorits often has to faice strange situations and to incur grave risks.

COST OF LIVING IN 1913. NO FURTHER INCREASE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
COST OF LIVING IN 1913, NO FU1iTHER INCREASE. The completion of the results for the last quarter of the year 1913 of the investiga tions into cost of living carried out by thei Commonwealth Statistician (Mr. G. if. Knibbs) enables comparisons to now bh made between the Vwhole of that year and :1ircedlitg years. In 1912 there was a phuinominal rise in the cost of living, av ounting to no less than 10 per ct., but th, final figures for the whole of the -year 1913 show that.this upward movement has ceased, the average level of the cost of liv ing index number for 30 towns in the Com i::onwealth during 1913 being precisely the some as in 1912. The fortuitous identity in these results is, of course, remarkable. While prices of groceries and food were iiearlv 3 per cent. lower in 1913 than in 1912 house rents were nearly 5 per cent. higher, vith the result that on the ave rage for the two years respectively . the combined cost of living index number re mained stationary.

CLOSER SETTLEMENT ADMINISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
. CLOSER SETTLEMENT ADMINIS TRATION. . The more the. administration of the *Closer Settlement Act is discussed the ::plainer it becomes thiat it is the adminis traltion of the Act, and not, the Actitself, ?ithat is at fault. The Act may require some slight amendments, buit if it is ad ministered. wisely and sympathetically, and witi firmness, much of the trouble that has been experienced ;s not likely, to pre vail. One of tlih troubles has been the purchase of land at high prices in dry areas for subdivision into- closer settle ment blocks when such land has really Scither not been suitable, or has not been judiciously subdivided. The suitability ofi the land at the price for certain kinds of farming is one of the essential points. Mr. Kennedy admitted that a settler could not make a living on 300 acres of land at 4£ per acre which 'was only suitable for wheat-growing. It may be admitted that a settler would do better on a larger area of land, Lut it may be questioned if the value o...
