There the Cabinet has pre cipitated tlie dissolution oi .Parlia ment, and fixed tho elections to talco place on the 27th April, aoiue months earlier than the ordeal need bo undertaken.

AVOIDING TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 23 March 1912

AVOIDING TROUBLE. The pay of Parliament is to be raised 50 per cent. The bill which Is to brine this about contains three main proposals. The first, to in crease the allowance of members of tho Assembly from £300 to £500 per annum. The second, to give a epecial allowance for clerical and other assistance for the leader of the Opposition. The third, to pro vide that moneys accruing to mem bers under the Bill must be taken as they, accrue. The third condition must surely ha.ve been introduced in the light of certain experiences ia the past. When payment of members first became a reality a .wealthy member of the Assembly do cllned to draw the monthly allow ance, and the general impression got abroad that the money reverted to the Treasury. But the general impression was wrong, as it so often is. After the wealthy member's allowance had accumulated for long enough to have been forgotten by .tiie public it was drawn out in a lump sum. Something similar hap pened in one or two instances i...

In every in stance where trouble arises the re sponsibility is shifted from shoulder to uhoulder as far as ingenuity is sable to perform the feat; it is in accordance with the usual order of xuuudaue matters therefore that the llttilway Commissioner should put whatever blame is attachable in the £ro.uW<3 on to the Government and tliat th« Government should seek to shift it on to the ltallway Com isiesloner.

The Rosehill Cup meeting opened on Saturday in bright warm weather and despite tlio fact that fields ranged from 13 to 2;>, backers were ■well on the mark in three of tlio six events.

When we feel pain, It is Nature warning us with clamant voice that there is something interfer ing with her normal course, and she is virtually appealing to us; craving our aid in intelligently assisting her to resume her beneficent sway. Pain not only injures us by its present hurt, it actually shortens our lives by subjecting our constitutions to un natural strain. Most people have but indifferent health and many go through life suffering, more or loss, : from some ailment, such as rheuma tism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, back ache, sciatica, blood-disorders, anae mia, indigestion, biliousness, jaundico, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone or bladder troubles.
