'Mullins, the last being from 'An Old Soldier' horrified at the idea that we should take steps to prepare our youth to' defend us and our. ideas of democracy. ? , I Assuming that you simply print all letters received, do you wonder',. as I do, why the column has developed in this way? Could 1 you ' ? make known the amount of space taken up by the 'Party Line' ; -and- similar humbug over the past weeks, 'as compared with other letters? I spent last week-end in New castle in contact with several Bur, wood, miners and ,'in conse quence W. Parkinson's letter would have been a source of much amusement,' if I could treat the matter lightly. Bur wood, he claims, is larger than the other three lodges, t...

Beat Golds and 'flu with Bex colds ^and 'flu. , 'Next day there is no sign of a cold' Mr. R. JamiesoNj Cement MillSj Gore, Queensland, writes : 'I am, or I should say, was a constant sufferer of colds, but I discovered the one and only way to stop a cold before it . gets a proper hold. When I feel a cold coming on I take a Bex Powder and a lemon drink, and next day there is no sign of a cold. I also get very severe headaches, but these do not worry me when I have Bex. I don't care^-what anyone says, they are a small powder, that does a mighty job,' and I would believe anything anyone told me of Bex.' Sore Throat soothed by Bex in Honey One Bex Powder mixed with an eggcupful of Honey will ease any sore throat. Or if you prefer, use Bex as a gargle, being careful to swallow the solution. Taken in this way, Bex acts at the seat of the trouble and also internally. Dav Tablets

Firstly, we have proved that 'aclc Underwood, the man who controlled the game is an up and coming referee who is cap able of deciding the most diffi cult and important matches. He is fair and in no way one-sided, and should gain further honours in the future. The game also showed that in the Southern Districts side there is proba...
