Wandong.. [PROM OUR OWN. CORRE5FOtDENT.] Tue ball given by the Wandong Social Committee was an. unprecedented suc cess. About thirty couples being present. The room was very nicely decorated with flags and evergreens. I am not able. to describe the dresses worn, by the ladies, bat still they all looked very nice. Who was the belle ?. Ah ! that's the query. Well, in my idea it would be very hard to say. Anyway, everybody enjoyed themselves, and dancing was kept up till the early hours of the morn ing. The hot weather has by all appear. ances set in, and the snakes are showing themselves accordingly;. several of them having been killed. The Australian Seasoned Timber Coy's. seasoning works are getting nearer and nearer towards completion, and I suppose before very long will be in readi ness for seasoning. The Water works schemefor Wandong still remains unsettled. The route by all accounts not being beld in approbation y all the residents.

c,1I¢ rono lftj'{l ottricr, Ano REEDY CREEK TI~ss. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, NOVEM.BER 18, 1892. The Validity of Wills. THEREn seems to be a growing tendency, on the part of "heirs" who tare dis. appointed in 'he r net receiving pro perty which they had reasonable ex pectation would be left theom, to dis pute the validity of charitable bequests which their relations have made to the.r prejudice. One such case has just been heard, another has been com menced, and the annals of the courts bear records of many others which have from time to time been- disposed of. Every man, being of sound mind, has the acknowledged legal right to dispose of his own wealth as he thinksi fit, although in the exercise of his legal right he may, and sometimes does, commit an act that is morally wrong. For instance, if a man bequeaths £100,000 to found a hospit. I, whilst his near blood rela ions are left to struggle with hi:ter poverty, one would hardly feel disposed to hold him up as a man whose ex...
