NEW MARINE REGULATIONS. At a meeting of.the Traralgon Town Band on Wednesday night last Dr. M.'Lean presided, and the ''Record" reports that correspondence in con nection with the annual trip to the Lakes was received. A letter was re ceived from the proprietors of the s.s. Gippsland, stating that the charge for the steamer to run an excursion from Bairnsdalo would be £35, and from Sale £40.

Fur ther correspondence stated that under the new regulations - of the Marine Board children over 12 months old would be counted as adults.

OUR SYDNEY LETTER. Public Instruction. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 January 1914
OUR SYDNEY LETTER. Public Instruotion. Mr. Carmichael, the Minister for Public Instruction, is jubilant over the progress made in his department dur ing the year. The Cabinet has been liberal in the matter of supplies, and there has been expansion all round. "No other State within the Common wealth can show such an increase in school population as that shown by New South W'ales in 1913," the Min ister says. Some of the results ac hieved seem, however, to be more cu rious than reassuring. At one sub urban school, for instance, medical in spection was sufficiently zealous to ascertain that no less than 75 per cent. of the children were suffering from defects of the throat and nose; and 600 out of 800 children examin ed at another school were declared to be suffering from some physical defect or another! There is no reason to be lieve that these children were in any worse condition than those who at tend other schools. WVhat, then, is the outlook for the rising generatkon? There is jus...

COMMONWEALTH METEOROLOGY. WEATHER OVER VICTORIA FOR WEEK ENDING JANUARY 9. The week just ended was t very dry one. Monsoonal activities were very pronounced over the northern interior of the continent, and Antarctic dis turbances to southward were also in evidence; but as the high pressure sys tems separating the two kept closely following the south coastline in their eastward movement, neither type of storm ever became effective- in rain production over southern areas. The usual summer wind changes, warm northerlies quickly followed by cool southerlies, accompanied the passage of two Antarctic depressions, one on the 4th, the other on the 7th. .It .has been consistently warm over. inland Victoria during the ,week, but Wednes day was hot' throughout, and on this day the maximum:for the- week,, 108 degrees, waes recorded ..at: Mitldura.
