Plain English. Mrs. Banks was gettitig ready to go out. Her patient husband waited iti the doorway, watching her complete her toilet. By the extra ordinary contortions of her neck, he concluded that sb2 was trying to get a gliuipse of the back of her new blouse, and by the tense lines about her face he concluded her mouth was full of pius, "Uraph—goof—suff—sb—ffspog she asked.

I i.!i •. i ■ i i i.i i.I.I22E32S TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—It is not surprising that | our council feel unequal to deciding the future lighting Bystem for our town without first hearing the voice of the ratepayers at a public meet ing. Ttie question is weighty. Its final decision by the council will influence the town's future con siderably. Il will bind the town hard and fast to a system for a life time. Which is the best for now and all time, Gas or Electricity? The pros, and cons, of the rival systems are argued by experts. Sometimes common sense and sound non-expert judgment counts con siderably. The townspeople must wake up to the possibilities and help decide. Our shire engineer has uo doubt gone into matters concerning our rival systems in his 'usual thorough and business-like mauner. He will no doubt attend the meeting and help things by giv iug his view. Expert advice is helpful. Albury, I believe, is act ing on the advice of a New South Wales Government electrical expert.

THE Benalla Independent. PUBLISHED ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS "Stands close to all But leaus on none." FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1914. FEDERAL SALARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 December 1914
THE Benalla Itidcpenflem. Published on Toesdav9 and Fridays "Stands close to all But lcaus on none." PRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1914. FEDERAL SALARIES. The heart of the nation must have received a shock when the light of day was turned on to the increase in expenditure in the administrative departments under the Federation, as revealed in the lists placed upon the, table of the House of Repre sentatives on Thursday of last week. It is simply astounding for the people to realise the truth of these estimates, that notwithstanding the fact that the number of employes, omitting temporary hands, has risen from 33.989 to 35,536, the average wage has actually risen from ,£134 to ,£140 Perhaps the worst feature of it all is that this is due eu.irely to increases in the salaries of the higher paid officials in the service. Surely at a time of great stress like the present these increases to the higher paids are altogether out of place. They are not the people who suffer when bread ruus up to 8d. p...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 December 1914
TO THE EDITOR. I was pleased to see Mr. B. L. Taylor's letter in Tuesday issue.in reply to mine. When I wrote I pointed out that "Ratepayer" in his letter of 1st December stated that electricity was twice as dear as gas. I merely wished to point out by personal experience that electricity was not twice as dear as gas, and il anything, was cheaper. That was my experience, and I think it is the experience of most towDS where electricity has been installed. Now as to the average per month paid by me for gas, I hold the followiug receipts from the Gas Company:— June v ... .. 19/4 July ... 18/6 August ... 15/7 September ... ... 18/4 October .. 16/6 November ... ... 9/4 Total ..1 £* 17/7 £4 17 /7 divided by 6 equals 16 /3 per month. If I should only have paid the Gas Company 14/4J4 per month, I shajl be glad if Mr. Taylor will re fund me the difference. In the above, 5/ is included for mantles, but that so slightly alters the total that it does not affect my contention that electricity is...

PARTY ABOVE v PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 December 1914
PARTY ABOVE v PRINCIPLE. When the stodgy House of political derelicts and obstructionists (styled the Legislative Council ) at tempted to block the Price of Foods Bill the Peacock Government put on a show of injured virtue ; the same Government denounced its attitude. Regarding the pro fessed virtue of their Conservative colleagues in the Lower Chamber as possessing something of a ge nuine ring about it, the Chamber of musty fossils gave way, and for the time being received the blessing of the Assembly—and the electors. All except the middle men and handful of wheat kings, who held more than half the wheat supply of Victoria in the hollow of their bauds, felt the Victorian Government would safeguard the retailer and the consumer from the spoliation of speculators who could rig a market or crush it as they pleased. That which most people had beeu led to regard as an impossibility— viz., Governmental interference in the prices of commodities—had ac tually conic to pass, and at the han...
GAS OR ELECTRICITY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 December 1914
GA.S OR ffiLEGTRICiTY.' TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I am in receipt of the fol lowing information, which may at the present juncture be of in terest ;— Watts per hr. 50 C.F. metal filament light consumes 55 25 „ „ „ ,, 30 16 20 12in. fan 50 c.p. 16in. fan 85 c.p. 1000 Watts one unit Anyone interested may easily count the lights burning, watch his meter for an hour and at once make up bis mind as to whether he wants electricity or not; but he should not forget to keep his eye on the meter when there are no lights burning. My meter alleges that it takes 4ft. to burn one point for one hour. The Melbourne City Council holds that electricity at 3y£d per unit is cheaper light than gas at -Is 5d per 1000 feet, but it is the adaptability to other benefits thau light, also its general convenience and cleanliness more than its cheap ness, which makes electricity as DODular asHt is to-dav.

A PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 December 1914
A PUBLICS.MEETING. A public meeting has been con vened for Tuesday evening next, at the Shire Hall, in order, as we understand it. to allow the ratepay ers an abundant opportunity to express their views upon electricity and gas. After they have expressed those views, what next? Echo answers, what. This is the same Council that, cognisant of the fact that a deputation would be waiting upon that august body at 2 o'clock of last meeting day, deliberately arranged for this public meeting in the morning, or several hours in advance of the interview. It was a case of the Council being a " little too previous." They had actually arranged a meeting that was not desired by the 'J raders' Associal ion. The latter had simply set itself out to provide the Council with a list of probable con sumers of electric light, and thus fulfilled their compact. The Cen tral Riding members went through ■the only data tbat -con~be~rcKardcd ■ as of service to a public meeting, but are they ready to supply tha...
Correspondence. LADIES' SWIMMING BATHS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 December 1914
Correspondence. i LADIES' SWIMMING BATHS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Will you kindly permit me space in your journal to make a statement in regard to girls bathing, as the paragraph which appeared iu your last issue concerning this matter may create a wrong impression in .the minds of your readers so far as the lady, teachers are concerned. The teachers accept no responsi bility in connection with the swim ming by girls, except during class hours. If parents allow those j daughters who cannot swim to bathe at other hours without super I vision, those parents must take the responsibility. Both the incidents you refer to occurred between 5 and 6 o'clock and on days when classes were not held. There is 110 danger whatsoever during class hours, as teachers realise that they are respon sible for the safety of each swimmer; they know the non-swimmers and do not allow them to enter deep water. As regards want of enthu siasm, I can spenk only for the two schools under my control. Thirty girls, und...
