Benai Band Contest & Carnival. o Boxing Day. O A BOOMING SUCCESS. THE PUBLIC TASTE FOR MUSIC. 0 PROCEEDS £200. For uiuuy yetra past, residents of Benalla liave felt the need of an attractive programme of some sort or another for Boxing Day in order to provide the populace with a very necessary adjuuet to a holiday as expresssd in the phrase " Some where to go." Neighboring towns could manage to run successfully sports meetings, ratje meetiugs. and so on, but-, strange to say, Betjalla had to satify itself with an ener vating period of listless inertia, or take train for otse of the distant meetings referred to, or perhaps, in a few instances.lform picnic paitits and "make a break" for the reaches of the Broken River where au idle time could be spent as disciples of Izak Walton. The suggestion that a public programme for a laxge centre like Benalla, generally emanating from a visitor or newcomer to the town, could always arouse a score of apologists, otherwise " wet 'blankete...

"War!" '".War!" is the title-of the latest itlus-. (rated booklet issued by Dr. Barnado's Homes. It tells of a war declared, not 'ast August but half a ccntury ago ; not by His MaJesty's~Government, bu* by one man ; not against the overbearing arrogance and ambition of an unscru pulous militarism,but against an equally subtle and deadly foe, the shadowy and innumerable enemies of destitute child hood ; J against vice, evil influence, hereditary tendencies, uucleunnes=, de solation. For forty-eight yews that war lies been waged by Dr. Bnrnudo and his followers. Already SO,087 children have come under their protecting care from all over England, Scotland, Wales, and ill parts of the British Empire". Tens •f thousands of these children have been saved from destruction and transformed into worthy citizens of the Umpire ! Perhaps it is true to say .that i:oL for many centuries has so strong-a spirit of patriotism pervaded our land. Not one •>f us, even the most apathetic, but fee!s hi...

Tee secoxd coming os . CHRIST. ©' BY IWSTOI! RUSSELL. Text: "When LTirist, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with ]iim in glory" (Col. iii. 4). © How foolish, how unscriptiiral, wore many . of the suggestions handed down from the Dark Ages respecting the object and the manner of our Lord's Second Ad vent ! How much more reasonable, satis factory, Biblical are tiie views which are now gradually prevailing ! We may well thank God that the blessed enlightenment of our day extends to the ltible, as well as tc'tlie temporal mercies which make ours the most wonderful epoch of history. The Bible declaration that the lie decmor would come and receive his faitmul people to Himself was once surmised to imply that all tlie remainder of mankind would experience eternal torture. Now we sec that the gathering of the Church in the First Resurrection is merely the completing of the Seed of Abraham (Gal. iii. 10-29). whose work will thenceforth be the bless ing of all the fami...

Correspondence GAS V. ELECTRICITY. TO T1IE EDITOR. SIR In your issue of 22112/14 you published a letter of roine in answer to one by Mr. Hugh Hull in which he accused me of ignoring a statement dealing with the light ing question which, he stated, he had made. I denied emphatically that he had ever made the state-, ment in the letter referred to. In his letter of the 18/12/14 he, how-1 ever, made statements which are absolutely incorrect, and I would be glad if you would allow me space to correct them so that the public may know the truth. Mr. Hull states "I must thank Mr. Taylor for crediting me with so much electrical knowledge, but a natural modesty compels me to point out that he was too flattering in crediting myself as the source of the figutes I quoted, they came from Messrs. Siemens anml Ui..t he largest ,electrical engineers in the world, so l am not surprised that be did not care to dispute them— so far, so good."
