A USTRA IIAN MUTUALPROV??IDENT SOCIETY. [EstLablishcd 1840.] FOR LIFE ASSURANCE ON THE MUTUAL PRINCIPLE. The Oldest Mutual Life Office in Australia. The most important consideration for any one alout to insure his life should be the stability of.the ollice in which le is to invest his savings. The Board of Trade report on the Life Assurance Companies' Act, 1870, says : "The. Public cannot be misled if, when seeking an office in which to effect an insur ance, they select one which transacts its business at a small percentage of working cost, and does not anticipate its profits." This Society does not anticipate its profits, and is, and always has been, Economically Managed ; hence its great success, aml its ability to declare large bonuses. It has more than a MILLION AND THIIRE-QUARTERS STERLING, safely invested in Government and other first-class securities. The new regulations grant some very un usual privileges.

TALK ABOUT TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
TALK AWOUT TOIVj. The t:lk is that the town pump is to he slhifted, anil that it is surprising to see thle ap;atthlitic mainncr with which the peopldle o Colae treat such an important subject. I weulhl suggest that the day the punmp is re mov\ed from its prescnt site lie proclaimed a public holiday, and that the President and C'unucillors march in procession, witlh the Colac Ihass Band at their head, and S-amn tluck anl the' Shire Engineer bearing the pulmp aloft in mid-air triumlpham;ntly hehinld, the Band playing tihe "Cold Water Cure." This would elevate the subject to its proper altitude, and the time-honored observances of Little Iedlington would thus be properly connemnorated. Thle Colac Good ''eiml ipars miight afterwards sit round the plmnp and sing Shall we not drink cold water when we sit down to dineli? OhIyes, my friends, oh yes, for is it not poured out lby, hands divine. Andlso on ad.- lib. I hope that this affair will receive the important consideration it really dese...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
AGRItULTRAL NOTiES The genial weather which has followed the late heavy rains is being attended with the best effects on the pastures, and is at the same time most seasonable for the push ing forward of ploughing and sowing .opera tions. Acorrespondent whohas justconcludedi a run through the Wimmera district informs us that ploughing is the order of the day, and in some instances wheat has been sown. A good many of the ploughs in use are double-furrow, and from the friable nature of the surface soil they work with the greatest ease, drawn by three, and sometimes by a pair of horses. A considerable extent of new land is broken up this season and it will all be put under wheat. A good pro portion of last crop still remains in the farmer's lhands, while the whole of the avail able storage acconmmodation, in iHorsham is absorbed for wheat awaiting transport to Stawell (forty-four miles) by drays and waggons, thence to be sent by rail to Mel bourne. At Stawell, also, the liroduce stores ...

MR. BELL EXPLAINS. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
MR. BELL EXPLAINS. ('TO TIE EDITOR OF THE iIERALD.) Sen,-I notice a slight mistake in your last issue, concerning a meeting of the Friendly Societies' Sports Committee, which was held in the Oddfellows' Hall, Colac, last Wednesday evening, and which I trust you will not neglect to correct. I am sorry to say that some of our neighbors are rather fast betimes; it appears they want to pick a man up before lie has properly fallen. Now one of these neighbors has written is letter headed "Dirty Work," and signs himself "Fair Play." He says, if my state ment be correct, that I jostled Hancock in a glaring manner in the third event for the Friendly Societies' Cup, and tried hard to prevent him (Hancock) from winning, owiug to some arrangement made between Michael Hardiman and myself, which I an prepared to prove is false. My statement, made at the meeting, was that no one spoke to me about running Hancock oftl and that my reason for runnintn up the hill was to enable Hancock to get the insi...

UNNECESSARY DELAY. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
UNNECESSARY DELAY. ('o TIIE EDITOR OF TILE II.ERALD.) Srni,-I am not a grumbler, but I think that I have just cause to grumble on the present occasion. Some months ago (in September last) 1 was awarded a prize at the Spring show of the Polwarth and South Grenville Pastoral, Agricultural, and Horti cultural Society. I have applied for my prize several times, but have been sent from the Secretary to the jeweller, and viee versa, and now after waiting all this time, I amn told that I will get it in a ' day or two." I do not know the cause of this delay, or what difficulty there is in the way, but it is evi dently not fair that 1 should le served ini this maunner. I have heard of others being treated in a; similar way. Perhaps thi Secretary will now endeavor to have this little imatter rectilied. I am, Sir, &e., A PRIZETAKEII. Colac, April 2.1, 1876.
[ADVERTISEMENT.] THE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876
[.vE):IITIsEI:? ENT. j rptl.t IvATIOasAL REFORM L LEAGUE OF VICTOItLA. NANIFES'I'O. It is a fulidamental principle ,f the Englisi Consttitution that rep-esentation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. I'he people of this conutry live under a constitution which, while leaving them comparatively free to elect their own representatives pra. ticailly deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Asscmbly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council, which reoresents only a portion of the communnity, thet portion b:eing the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore. become a nullity, and self-govern ttent a sham. In every civilized country in the world a land tax is cue of the chief sources of revenue for the State. In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenue grants large a:nnual subside...

A FIGHT WITH A BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876
A .FIG6T WITH A BURGLAR. About three o'clock on the inorning ?of February 2, two men,. masked and.armed for desperate work, entered the residence of George A Kent, 161 Court-Street. Mr. Kent and his wife were asleep in their room, which is on the first floor, on the west side of the house, and opens into the sitting room.

Some presentiment of darger came over him, and lie resolved to get up and see what was the matter. Waking his wife, he yawned and rolled over, remarking in a cool mattei-of-fact tone, that he was going to get up. His wife asked him why, and Mr. Kent replied that lie was going into the bathroom. This was, of course, a more excuse, but Mr. Kent had planned the whole thing, thinking that if there was anyone within hearing he would be thrown off his guard. Mr. Kent slowly raised himself up in bed and stepped out on the floor. He walked in...

AŽ SUBSIDISED; NE-IFSPAP rse • . ISPOSED. ' The Ciemglerdomn Chrnnicle, a liaper started at Camperdoivn by a few squatters some eighteen months since, having struggled on a eniscrable eistcece for some tine past, has suddenly, appeared- in .a greatly, ednlarged formn nad" containing a niunber of .metro politan advertisements.. The. organ whlch represents public opinion at Camperdown, the lielcipdeL"Guiardianel, after a .few pre liminary 'observations, thus ruthlessly ex poses thes tactics of the squatting conspirators and their "venerable" tool : Eighteen .months' experience of the exist ence of a siibsidised paper in the Camper down district, has fully and unmistakably confirmed the truth of the statements then advanced by us. It has been proved beyond a doubt that the district cannot and will not support two papers, and when we assert, as we do without any hesitation, that the squatting organ here has actually received no encouragement in the district in which it has elected to ci...
