TIHE ELECTIONS. ———:o:——— Now the wordy war is over And the seats are lost and won, Labor has been badly vanquished, Aye ! they're walloped two to one. There's a clearance from the Senate, Members who're afraid to shoot By the voters were invested With the order of the boot. Labor wanted this election So's to have the ruling sway, For the cat was on the balance But it jumped the other way. Billy Hughes has scored a triumph Over Tudorites and all. Bendigo gave him a welcome Spite of Hampson's figures tall. For though Billy's small in stature, &nbsp; Yet his mind is wondrous big ; And his tongue is like a whiplash, Supple as a pliant twig. Tassy's lost the big O'Malley With the great financial brain. Will he take his bag and sally Back to Yankeeland again ? There's rojoicing in Corio When they saw what Lister'd done.

He is constituted for the time being by the Association the servant of the soldiers. His job Is to see that the men are providtel with ample facilities for recreation, reading, writing, study andi physical exercise, and that they are given spiritual advice if they so desire. So thoroughly is this service car tied out that the " Y,1. oman" has become an itdispensiblo institution on every trans port. Mr Albany Bell, a successful business man of the Commonwealth, who is giving honor ary service as a Y.M.C.A. secretary, writes by the latest mail of diverting incidents on the troopship which ihe accompanied from Australia. Reforring to a certain port toward the end of the voyage, he says: " We went away fiom here strongly con voyed. One of the war boats-a doughty little fighter-been in all the scrap...
