Councillor Hiok, at the next mooting of the Oouncil, will give his knowledge of the value of property an airing. He will ondeavor to show that the Oounoil appointed the wrong man as valuer and that his valuation should be cot aildo, What rrgumount he will adduce ln favor of this novel proooeding can only be a matter of conjooture, There is a woll grounded impression that property doalora for the purpoua of gala are the last persons that should be consulted in the matter of valuations as they are the parties most liable to unconsolous bias, The only case in which the taxpayer is allowed to name his own tax is whore the State is a probable buyer and where the owner who marks the value down to a temptingly low figuro Is bound to cell his property to the Stato at his own valuation.

THE SWORDS OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 7 November 1914

Their swords were highly valued for their delicate temper, and their decoration was also prci l. It was fromt these conquerors tat tihe Spaniards learned much of their skill in forging and tempering steel.

In the pro cess of forging, the metal is taken white-hot from the furnace, and is tsujected to a cooling process. I...
