Correspondence. GAS OR ELECTRICITY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 December 1914
Correspondence. GAS OH ;CL~C THIRTY. TO TIIK KOITor. Sir, — Permit me to correal an error in Mr. E. 15. Carter's Jetter in your lust issue. • Mr—C>ut£r states that in his private house at Rochester " I hail l-i points and used the electric iron. fj.n and heater, and my nvf-nige account was'14/ per month for the year. In Benalla I have 12 nap jets and a ga9 rin«. and I have paid the local Gas Company on an average of 10/6 per month for the last 6 mnrths. These are eery plain facts and prove conclusively that electric light is cheaper than our present gis charges." Now. Sir, as manager of the Gas Co referred to and as Mr. Carter's statements are incorrect respecting the number of gas jets iiiul the amount paid to iny company, I would he obliged if you would allow me spiee to correct them. (Incidentally, let me point out that it i3 an unfair method for comparison of average-^ if the statements made were cor rect, to take the electric lighting average over the whole 12 months, which ...

The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 December 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If 6uch there be, go mark him well, ?or hitn uo bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here 1"'. him live in calm repose, Uusougnt by men except he owes, And when liedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise,"

GLENROWAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 December 1914
GLENROWAN. The need for a justice of the peace is severely felt at Glenrowan, and at times, much inconvenieuce is occasioned by the fact that there is not a justice resident in the town. Probably some action will be taken In the near future to have the defect remedied. The matter has b&lt;-en discussed a good deal, lately, and it'is probable that a public meeting will be called to de cide the best action to be taken. The names of several prominent residents have been mentioned as suitable for nomination, and there is indication, that a petition in favour of the appointment of Mr P. Durack will be taken around Glen rowan and district for signature,
ROUND THE DISTRICT. YARRAWONGA. DEVENISH RAILWAY OPPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 December 1914
ROUND THE DISTRICT. _ YARR A. WONGA. DEVENISH RAILWAY OP POSED. At Saturday's meeting of the Yarrawonga Agricultural Society Mr C. J. Ryan brought under no tice the action of the people of Devenish in getting a railway officer to inspect and report on the above proposed line of railway. In view of the action taken at the conference at Dookie in the direction of endea vouring to secure the construction of a connecting link between the Dookie and Yarrawonga lines it appeared to.him that the course adopted by Devenish in agitating for a line from Springhurst was extraordinary. Mr Manning said lie had noticed that the proposed line bad been condemned by the departmental officer. The estim ated cost of construction was set down at .£4000 a mile, and the inspecting officer did not . consider it advisable to entertain the sug gestion of the line. The secretary (Mr Parkins) expressed the opinion that the mere fact of the depart mental engineer reporting adversely was rather to the advantage...

At Last! At Last! THE END OF A GREAT BATTLE IN SIGHT. - [CONTHIBUTKD.] For the past few months a fierce battle has beeu taking- place along the. Broken River, and heavy losses on both the Old and the New side have been recorded. Count Von. Trump has forced his army south west along the river, tight through the Chinese territory, destroying and repulsiug everything that came before them, with their silent six inch maxim guns they have de stroyed thousands of rabbits and native companions. They opened a fierce fire on the old brewery, but failed to knock the bung in. The old regiment, under I,ord Drumstick are on the north side of the river, and fighting at a long range, and have kept up a deadly fire for the last few days. The Kaiser visits the ranks frequently, and consoles his troop by informing them that it. can't last over Boxing Day, al though they are fighting gamely they are weary of the Casey trenches. Much damage has been done along the river by mine-laying and blast ing. A ...

A New War Book. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 8 December 1914
A New War Book. BY DR. W. H. FITCHETT. The war has been raging for over three months;;and,it is striking how few people can give, even in outline, a connected story of those puzzling, world-shaking months.

Since Dr. Fitchett wrote "Deeds That Won the Empire." he has been recognised as the most popular writer in Australia of historical and patriotic studies, and his booklet, "The Three Months of "the War," proves that the claim is justified. In a series of graphic and stirring chapters Dr. Fitchett tells the con nected story of the war from the early days of August till the end of the first three months—a story that, for clarity, for insight, for happy phrasing, and for swinging move ment, it would be difficult to sur pass " The First Three Months of the War" is now ready and sells every where for 1/. It contains many full-page illustrations and over 100 pag...

" I was compelled to remain from the end of July until Ai'gust 29. and an hour and a half before the Germans entered I was allowed to board a train containing Belgian refuge...
