THE Horbor Trust does not favor the. route proposed by the Town Council for electric main across 'Fisherman's Bend The Council proposed the Short road route. The Harbor Trust requires the cable to be carried from I the pumping'station, Spotswood, along the line of the main sewer to Port Melbourne. This will lengthen the distance and increase the cost by about £200, 'which will be borne in equal parts by the City Council aid the Williamstown Council. The cable must be laid 36 below. the low water mark and must allow' for the increase of the river width to 500 feet. The main- sewe has. often been re ferred to as a block to thei deepening of the Yarra- But it is a still greater barrier to docks and canals in Fisher man's Bend, being nearer the surface there there than at the river and: in very treacherous quicksand.

"Human beings are always unhappy unless they are with dogs." "But they are so free," replied little Fido. "When I dig in the garden my master scolds me, but I know men who are allowed to dig all day long. 'And other human be ings-they must be kings, I suppose -a illowed to carry hliejvy 1'aic-ils about; I only get a stick occasion ally. Again, some break stones in the road all day. I can't do that at all." "Still, you would not enjoy being human for long," returned his par ent, but Fido ran away whining, and would not believe her. -That night Fido had a curious dream. He stood beside a dog-rose on a dog-day, and that means that a dog's wish will be granted. The dog-fairy, a small greyhound, slip pe...

Our next general meeting is on Thursday, 14th January.
