; Diphtheria at Lower Buckland. ' Our Bright correspondent writes;: Dr Janet Greig, of the Education Department, paid a visit of inspec tion to the Xower Buckland State School during the week, in response to solicitations from the parents of' children sttending the school, in order to discover, if possible, the cause of periodical outbreaks of diphtheria which so frequently of late occasioned <"he closing of .the school.

Woods' Great Peppermint Cure, Fov Coughs and Colds, ne^er fails, 1/6 A story comes from Westralia, where the books are reported to have been the victims of sharp prac tices in a peculiar way. The trainer of a promineut candidate for an important race had duplicated lead bags on the day of the race, and he saw to it that they were1 filled with the same quantity of lead. After; the jockey had weighed out lead bag No 1 it was placed on the horse and practically concealed by a rub ber, while lead bag No 2 was left exposed in the stall which had been occupied by the horse. The "clever" individual who discovered the second lead bag after the horse had been removed from the stall lost no time in communicating with several of the ring men instead of informing,, those connected with the horse, with the result that the horse soon drifted in the market. Then a liberal com mission was worked, and he duly won. Those members of the ring who thought they were in the "know" smiled confidently, but ...

The Social Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 July 1914

The Social Problem. By " Miranda.' In Myrtleford. for some time past human intelligence has apparently failed to reckon with itself, and in this regard it would appear there is a good deal to learn. I have already alluded to several undesirable cha racters and practices, such as the hoodlum, the night prowler, and the wandering stock nuisance. " Miranda" would now just like to say that the ownership of horses, and cattle should not be a privileged means to create discomfort and hos tility to '' the citizen,'' whose home is the "social unit" M}' bane of complaint this time is that at the close of each sale day: cattle are allowed to remain at night in the yards. Xately a severe frost oc curred, and the manner in which the unfortunate animals bellowed and roared the uight through was a, plain indication of their sufferings from its severity. Those people within hearing had little sleep or comfort. The owners and the auc tioneers must know this, but it does not alter one little bit the...

Mr. PARKER MOLONEY AT BEECHWORTH. Mi* Parker Molouey, the Labor candi date for Indi, addressed between 300 and 400 electors in the Federal Hall, Beech worth, on Thursday night. Cr Hodge occupied the chair. Mr Moloney said lie was pleased the double dissolution took place, as people only had to suffer the Cook Government for one year, instead of three. People should know that the Preference Prohibi tion Bill, over which the dissolution was •granted, was a fraud and a sham. Mr 1 Cook boasted of having abolished the pre ' ference that was said to exist in the public service on his taking office. Therefore it j was the height of hypocrisy to waste the | country's time and money on a bill to kill something already dead. He wondered how his opponents could look farmers: in j the face after the stories told last election I regarding rural workers- They were told . that if the Fisher Government were got rid of they would never hear of the log again, yet the position to day regarding this ma...
