From Thoona Railway League, re- questing support of the society in having the lime deposits near Dookie opened.—Support to be given, and members of Parliament for the district to be asked to give the question con- sideration. The opinion was expres- sed that the deposits might prove of value to the farmers and fruitgrowers of the district. Show or No Show. Mr. McDonell said they were face to face with a bad season, and there ap- peared to be little chance of it improv- ing. Some thought it unwise to go on with the show, but whilst he was against that, he thought they should do something to reduce expenditure, and with that idea would move that the prize money be reduced 25 per cent. He was sure the exhibitors would not object. Mr. Geo. Stickels seconded. Mr. J. H. Tuckett said they should consider the question of...

MISSIONARY EXHIBITION. (Continued.) Some very effective scenery in the Jewish section illustrated a Bedoudin tent and a Moslem minaret with the words '• Islam defies your King " written there ou, Miss Erwood has been working amongst the Arabs in Gilead for nine years, and has this to contend with—that conversion to Christianity means almost certain death to a Moslem. Miss Cross ley represented Central India, where she has worked for eleven years. She showed a Hindu shrine and a zenana, a veiled woman's apartment, on which was pinned a pathetic letter from an Indian girl im ploring,Christian enlightenment and free dom. In India there are 207 million Hindus and sixty-two million Moslems, There are 400 Christian missionaries at work there.

A GERMAN SERMON ON PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 18 September 1914
A GERMAN SERMON ON PEACE. Three years ago the Hector clipped from a Montreal paper a Rermon by the great German Theol., Prof. Harnaek, of Berlir, preached a few years ago, before the in augural meeting in London of the As sociated Councils of Churches in the British and German Empires for foster ing friendly relations between the two peoples. A few extracts might prove of interest to our readers. The text chosen was Gal. 5, v. 22.—"And, secondly, peace is a fruit of the Bpirit." A most signifii cant word. Peace is not the offspring of well calculated interest and ciroumspect selfishness. They are mistaken who would oxpeot such forces to bring forth peace ; it may for a time appear aB if they were right, but it suddenly appears clear that well calculated interest is insuffi cient ; a moment arrives when brutal selfishness elbows aside its gentler brother and assumes his place. Peace is likewise not the fruit of a skilful political po'icy. A skilful political policy may accomplish muo...
