Travers shrugged his shoulders, and nodded in the direction of the: little group a few yards away. ''Woody,'' said Travers. ' 'The deuce 1' Wattle groaned. 'You mean ? ?' 'Yes,' said Travers again.

I am not in the trenches at pre- sent. We are going back in next week. A man is just as safe in the trenches as he is out here. &nbsp; Our home got sent sky-high by Mr. Hun's shells the other day, but the men were not much hurt.

ITEMS OF INTEREST. ? + ? -.- Persistent rumors are preva lent in Bradford that the British Government will establish some sort of control in the near future over colonial wools. Some re ports state that all wool impor ted after the end of September will be commandeered, but noth ing authentic can be ascertained. Applications received on Fri day by post on account of the war loan brought the total up to £21,843,160. A deputation urged Mr. Grif fith to hold over the contentious sections of the new Local Go vernment Bill. The Minister re plied that the matter could not be -taken up this session, wliich was a'reacly overcrowded with bills. Over 100 sheds have now star ted shearing on the award terms, representing 2,420,000 sheep. In some cases the' men were pre vented from igoing to work by the efforts of a few agitators.

TERRIBLE CALAMITY. Details of a tragedy at Mana kau (N.Z.), in which Edward Ba Ztes and his wife and child were killed in the bush, show that the three, with a son, lived in a tent, which they were preparing to re move owing to its dangerous proximity to a huge rata tree on the hillside above. The son and other bush-fellers were clearing a new site, and Bates and his wife and child were 'at dinner in the tent, when a gale uprooted the rata tree, which crashed on the tent, bringing with it an enormous quantity of soil. It took two days to recover the three bodies. Addressing the State War Coun cil of Victoria Senator Pearce made an appeal in connection with the Repatriation Fund. 'We shafcl require,' he said, 'a fund of. a strength of £5,000,000 ; we may even want more.' If vol untary effort failed, he contin ued, taxation would be inevitable. It was stated 'in the Assembly that the Parliamentary refresh ment room and bar was losing £40 a month.. The 'Lord Mayor's refreshment room at...
