STATE AFFAIRS. VICTORIAN PARLIAMENT. M\fembers of the Legislative Assembly have settled down to the work of the. suim mer session in a way that indicates a de termination to complete the task as soon as possi:,le. For many hours on Thursday they were engaged on the tiresome work of moulding machinery to give. effect to prin ciples more or less generally acceptable in tl.e Workers' Compensation Bill. That hamrl eases make bhad laws was driven home to many minds when the new clause pro posed Kr the Government to meet the case of small employers in rural industries was brought down by the Attorney-General, Mr. Mackinnon. The intention was that any such employer paying not more than £1.50 per annum in wages should be. aito matically insured in the State office, if, within fourteen days after the commence ment of the act, or the comniencement of employment, he notifies the office and takes out a policy as soon as practicable. For many and widely divergent reasons imembeors found fault wi...

SBEAUTY HINTS: is Your Hair Getting Grey?-Another well-know4 - doctor has recently declared that tight necko'bands are one cause of premature greyness. The preso sure on the blood vessels and the neck causes sluggishness and. congestion of the circul:rtion, with the result that the scalp does not get proe pcrly nourished, and the hair loses its color. ver quickly. No person's. hair should get grey before 50. at least, There is sonmething thre matter if'It does, and lhie great thing is to find out' the caiuse, and remove it. Turn ydiur attention first of all to the neckband Even if it' is not_ too tight, it is perhaps too lhigh: pressing on that piot of the neck-.just below the jaw, near;which lie ihe large vessels.
