Town leys at Windsor Kouso, JSdg hnston; give them my kind regards and tell them I am quite well." The noise of the moving train pre vented him catching the rjamo' of the house, but a pretty brurtette seated opposite supplied liim witli the neces sary information. i ^ In the afternoon (with visions of a pleasant tea) he went to-fulfil his mis sion.

"There is nothing too magnificent and grand for a soldier of France."

Strange Ways of the Christian. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 20 March 1908

Strango Ways of tho Christian. It often takes tlio mirror of another's opinion to show up tho inconsistencies of prnctiec. ' Tho idea that gloom should bo associated with death in tho mind lighted by tho hopeful torch of Christianity seemed a strange thing to tho young Indian girl mentioned in a book on "Tho Indian Alps," "Mom-sahib," asked sho, "why, do you wear those sad coloursP I don't like thorn.' "I am in mourning, Latoo. It is tho custom of English ladies;" "But black is the colour of night, mem-sahib, and yet you boliovo that when you die you go to heaven at onco. Then why not bo glad for your friends who die, and wear colours such as wo -see in birds, and flowors^ and" falling water when the sun shines? God doesn't make your colours. Ah, well, Christians aro strango people!"

How to Treat Sheepskins. SOME VALUABLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 20 March 1908

How to Treat Sheepskins. SOMK VALUABLE HINTS. If proper attention be given sheep skins they will command a much higher price than if treated in differently, thus handsomely repay ing the owner for the labor incurred. Many farmers neglect this portion Of the industry, with the result that sheepskins are placed on the mar ket ?in' a .dilapidated state-torn, and frequently weevil-eaten. The difference J n price between a sound pelted skin and a weevil-damaged one amounts to .as much.'as J^d or Id per lb, a loss of approximately 9d per skin. : The majority of farmers seem to think that it requires a lot of skill and much labor to treat skins pro perly. This is an erronous idea. There is practically no skill re quired, and very little labor. Care should be exercised to avoid cutting or damaging the pelt when skinning and to guard as much as possible against any blood getting on to the pelt. Cut off the trotters, face and leg pieces, and trim off all fat and meat; spread the pelt out in a...

At the same time the congregation of'St. Mary's Church took steps to reward Mrs Jones for the care and attention she had bestowed on Church work, so that with both committees working in unison for deserving objects, it is little wonder that the social on Thursday of last week was such a huge success and very gratifying to the prompters. Fully fifty couples were present and dancing was indulged in until 11 p.m. when an adjournment was made to the stage where tables had been tastefully laid with choice refreshments and wines. Mr E. Jones occupied the chair, and after the usual toast of "The King" had been honored he called upon Mr Pittock to propose the health of "Our Guests."
