EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 30 January 1914
EDITORIAL. I wish to draw attention to the custom of having our Baptisms during public ser vice. The Prayer B >ok provides a Service for the private Baptism of children in houses.. The Rub-ic preceding this Ser vice states, however, "that without great cause and recesaiby 'hey procure uot their children to be baptised at noma in their houses " As a matter ef fact the only occasion of private Biptism is when a child is in grievous bodily danger, and it would be impossible to take it to the ■"buret). 1-The-only Baptismal So'vic-i therefore advocated by the Churoh is that for "Public Biptism' for Infants to be used in the Churoh." The Rubrics given in the Prayer Book before this Servic give the reasons for Public Baptism -s follow : "Raotism -nould not be adminis tercd but on Sundays and other rloly Ibiys, when the most number of peoplr come tngeth r; as well lof rb it the cm gregation present may testify the receiv ing of th m that be cewlv b pvised into he number of C-irist's C'lU...

PIC[?]LA. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 30 January 1914
PIC'Lv. An exciting bolt occurred at, Mr R. Trickey's sale on Wednesday last, when a pair of horses hitched to a hooded buggy, owned by Mr T. Bart, made off round a timbered paddock. Before go ing far Mr Bart was capsized, bnt his companion stack to the reins while the galloping and kicking pair did a rattling go. Finally, the horses fre^d themselves from the baggy by breaking the pole, and with that and the harness and at their heels made for a fence. Here they came to grief—probably not being qnite of the one mind—for though both rose at the jamp, only one managed to clear, the other lodging on the rail. BrokeD harness, and damped pole and braised borsee were the wort fe&tnros of the mishap. We are pleased to learn that Mr C. J, Donovan, who has had rather a bad torn of illness, is on his wav to recover . It will bs seen by "tir advertising col umns 'bat a meeting of the committee of the Pioola Race Cnb will be held at the Picola Hotel on Monday evening next. Also that a m...
