CONCERT AND SOCIAL. The concert and social on Wednes day night, in aid of tbe funds of the local Convent, was a huge success and I understand about £30 will be the financial result.

Cumnock Items. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 24 October 1902
Cumnock Items. [From our own Coubespondent,] Pneumonia is pretty prevalent in and around the town. The latest victim is Mrs. M. Whittaker, of Obley. Dr. Veech was sent for and arrived at 2 o'clock this (Thursday) morning, when be said Mrs. Whittaker's case was serious. The patient is staying at Mr. McDonnell's Hotel. The railway survey party are settled here for some time. They have com pleted toe survey ot one line entering the town by the eastern side, and are now engaged on the Norah Creek route. ' Last week's rain made the grass and crops look fresh, but the subsequent hot dry wind again browned things. Farmers will be satisfied now if they can get hay from their crops. A cricket match was played between the married and single men of the town on Wednesday afternoon, when the benedicts secured the honors.
That Tennis Match. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 24 October 1902
That Tennis natch. In out issue of the 10th instant it was reported that a friendly tennis match had been played, Mr. J. Davies and Miss Mabel Clarke against Mr. Ralph Snelling and Miss Neilson, resulting in an easy win for the former. It was also stated that the stakes of the match were a pair of gloves for the lady win ner and a tie for the lucky gent. Mr. Snelling wishes us to state that the report was rather premature, the match referred to being but one of a series of three, which have not yet been completed. Mr. Snelling objects to the remark that the other side won easily, and also wishes to con tradict the statement that the stakes of the match were a pair of glbjes and ; a tie. As we have no desire teToe the innocent cause of the slightest friction i among our local tennis players— or j any other association for the matter i of that— we hasten to comply with Mr. Snelling's wishes.

The Municipalities Bill. To the Editor of the ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 24 October 1902
VMl^^lltottlW To the Editor of the Ahgus. SlB,— I trust that you will allow mo space to refer tothe most important feature in the Municipalities Bill now before Parlia ment. ' ' , In that Bill an alternative method for raising rates is proposed. The present policy iB to levy upon nine-tenths of the fair average rental value of land and improvements, or upon five per cent, of the capital value of unimproved land. This way of raising revenue means that owners of fully improved lands pay the highest rates, while those who have partly improved, or idle lands, pay the lowest. In other words, good healthy bouses are rated heavily anp insanitary hovels lightly. The most enterprising people in Molong are taxed the most, while the owners of idle lands who benefit by the expenditure of public money and every increase in population, do not give a fair return to the public for the advantages which they receive. Here is an example to show the exact operation of the present method : Block of vaca...
Hindoo's Peculiar End. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 24 October 1902
Hindoo's Peculiar End. — o — An Indian hawker, named Goodyan Singh, has died under very peculiar circumstances in the Temora hospital. Some two months ago he arrived at Temora with a waggon full of drapery, ' &c, and caused considerable surprise bv collecting a crowd anil thrnurino his goods broadcast among them. For several days this went on until his stock, which must have been worth £200, was exhausted. He then killed his horses. His next move was to draw his savings from the P.O.. Bank, and with this he purchased a large quantity of fodder, and every day he fed several cows and two bulls (winch to Hindoos are sacred animals) belong ing to people who lived near where he was camped. He paid special atten tion to the bulls, and pave them the largest share. When his money wasv exhausted, be crept into his waggon, refusing food, and actually starved himself to death. When this state of affairs became known to the police. they promptly removed the man ib the Hospital, and ever...
How a Man Drowns. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 24 October 1902
How a Han Drowns. — o — Few popular fallacies are of such wide extent as the belief that a person must rise to the surface three times, no more and no less, before he can possibly drown. There is little ground for this supposition although it has been almost universally believed in for generations. The truth is that a drowning person may sink the first time never to rise again, or he may as he indeed- does in the. majority of caaesj.rise three times before be sinks forever. It all depends upon the quan tity of water that he swallows when he sinks and the size of his lungs. The human body in life naturally floats while the lungs are inflated. As long as one keeps his head above the surface of the water he can float, face up, without having to move hand or foot. Bat as soon as a person sinks he gulps and imbibes a quantity of water. If, after be has swallowed water, be has any air left in his lungs, he will undoubtedly rise.again, and will con tinue to sink and rise alternately until ...

The selector, therefore, becomes the holder of the land at what is really a low rental, and, at the end of a term of years, obtains his title in fee simple without any further payment.

Privately; very little, it any, business has been tran sacted, buyers snowing no disposition to operate, and their attitude, perhaps, is best described as a waiting one. '.

I allude to the UnderSeere tary for Finance and Trade, and *thei Ac countant to the Treasury. . . . There never was a financial statement delivered here at which criticism was not levelled, and there never was a more manly, out spoken and dear criticism of a financial i statement than that made by the leader of the Opposition: He did not make his criticism solely from a party standpoint, but he had regard to the welfare of the country.

Bournewood. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 24 October 1902
Bournewood. [From oue own Coeeespondknt.] The Baptist Church at Bournewood was taxed to its utmost to accommo date the friends who sought admission on Wednesday, 15th instant, and indeed many failed to do so. The platform was crowded, seats were brought and chairs so as to utilise every available foot of space, but even then many had to stand outside. The occasion was a special one, viz., the rendering of a service of song entitled 11 Eva ' by some musical friends from Cumnock, prominent amongst them being the local school teacher, Mr. I W. L. Ross, and Mrs. Ross, who were ably seconded by other local residents. The proceedings commenced by selec tions on the ' Grammaphone ' given by Mr. W.
