THE LATE JOHM CAMPBELL. The services at the Presbyterian church on Sunday were conducted by the Rev-. Mr. Law, and at the evcn.ng service he made reference to the late Mr. John Campbell, and to the mclancholy drowning latnhty at Glengarry the previous Sunday afternoon. Miss.

QUESTION BEFORE THE ROSEDALE COUNCIL. TRARALONG COUNCIL SUPPORTED. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 20 January 1914

QUESTION BEFORE THE ROSEDALE COUNCIL. TRARALGON COUNCIL ; ' PORTED. At the meeting of the Roseda'e shire council yesterday, a letter was read from the Traralgon shire council stating that it is propo sed to convene a conference of representatives of the district councils to again take up the question of straightening and snagging the Latrobe river. Councillor Davis urged that the council should support the Tra rafgon council. He pointed out that the drainage works on the Moe swamp sent the water down quicker than it came previously, and thus helped to flood the river flats lower down. He also said that snagging and straightening the river would reclaim thousands of acres of land, and render it fit to grow heavy maize crops. As showing the serpentine . course of the river, Councillor Davis men tioned that by the channel the dis tance to Sale was 57 miles, and by road 17 miles. The president (Councillor Fvt cher) who owns land with a fron t-age of three miles to the Latrobe river, als...

The department ot Pubha Works wrote, stating that the question ot maintaining the re-graded Licola road was one that devolved upon ' the council.

"Pepper with Meat." [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 20 January 1914

"Pepper with Meat." Sail Antonio, Tex,, presents in its oldei sections a peculiar illustration of how cus toms survive .long after their causes have ceased. One hundred and sixty-two years ago or thereabouts, some fifteen families of Canary Island Spaniards, with a larger number of Tlascalan Indians, started the old city. Each race brought its local cus toms, and from their combination resulted fclie San Antonio customs of today. There are open air restaurants on the Plaza des Arme3 as in the Canary isles; cigarettes of tobacco and cornshuck as among the old Mexican Indians, and queer dishes of Span ish meats and Mexican peppers. At the tables comely Mcc'.ean girls act as waiters and serve up "cnile con came," "tamales," "enchilades" and other truly : native dishes. Observe that tie "chile" is j mentioned before the "carne," which is very appropriate indeed, for to an American | taste there is much more of it. It was in- j deed "pepper with meat." and not "meat ; with pepper," as "c...
