PARLIAMENTARY ITEMS THE MUNICIPAL ENDOWMENT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 13 September 1906
PARLIAMENTARY ITEMS ; THE MUNICIPAL ENDOWMENT ! BILL. ; When the above measure was be* , fore the Legislative Assembly, a lew days since— ( fllr Albeit Harris said:—The Nar- j racan shire has an area of 552 square . miles; the rate is Is 4d in the £1, and the revenue £3,740. The endow- , raent for 1905 was £537, and the en- , dowment, under the new Bill, will be , £1016, so that the increase for that , shire, with 552 square miles of terri- • tory, will be £479. This shire has . an immense area of difficult; country, with heavy soil, and an absence of , metal with which to make roads. When roads are made in one particular part , they become juv>t as bad as ever in the : ensuing year. I believe th«* if the , Government would nationalise and , make the main roads, they could borrow a aum of money and enable the shires, which were disposed to make cross-country roads, to do this work, by obtaining money from the Government on loan at a rate of interest a little over what the Governm...
WHAT IS SOFT WATER? [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 13 September 1906
WHAT IS SOFT WATER? . AH natural waters contain a greater or less nmount of mineral water In solution. Rain-water has tlie smallest percentage of solid impurities of any, and, therefore, it is taken as the standard variety of soft water. The terms soft and hard, however, as applied to water are, scientifically considered, purely relative. A water is usually reckoned to be "soft" when it contains less than l-5000th part of its' weight of mineral ingredients, and "hard" when it contains more than l-4000th. Soft water has the property of easily forming a lather with soap, and is, therefore, suitable' for washing purposes; while hard water will only form a lather, and that imperfectly, with considerable difficulty. A mineral water has more than l-2000th of its weight of natural dissolved solids, and a medicinal water is a variety of mineral water containing a varying percentage of dissolved natural solid or gaseous drugs.

TEMPERANCE MATTERS. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 13 September 1906
I - TEMPERANCE MATTERS. [CoMMU.NICATElJ.j I Extracts from letter received by Mr*. ILtrrison Lee; from Judge A. \V. Pollard, Second District Court, St. Louis Mo.. U.S.A.:— "I am not a member of any temperance organisation or party, but am a total abstainer interested in temperance work. If your papers were to mention my system of dealing with the unfortunate victims of strong drink who appear before me, it might cause a spirit of emulation to arise "in the hearts and minis of other judges, to the end that more unfortunates miy be made sober and better citizens. My system is a great success. My duty and love of humanity push me forward in the great work—to lift up the unfortunate. The svstera—Complied from "New York Herald," 21.1/06. In Missouri the state governor, a police court judge, and a grand jury investigator, are reforming drunkards by compelling them to sign temperance pledges, backed by the law to compel them to keep them. Men have been liberated from the peniteotiary, polic...

HARD ON THE EDITORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 13 September 1906
HARD ON THE EDITORS. The press regulations within the .Sultan's dominions are, if anything, more cruelly severe than they are in Russia. The things which the tmhajp\x=req-\ py journalist may or may not do may be briefly summarised, and it will be seen that he has as narrow and perilous a line to . walk as that famous bridge by means of which all good" Mahommedans enter Paradise. The health 'of the Sultan and hla, family is a topic which the journalist may dilate upon lovingly to any ex* , tent he wishes. If he falls to do so it is at his peril, and it may mean & so* journ of weeks in gaol. If the- crops are prosperous he may devote a considerable space to a spirited description of their condition,, and receive praise therelor from the an* > thorltles. But if the harvest is poor . The editor -must n6t criticise anything, not even the .Weather, without express permission from, the Minister of Public Instruction.: That. efBdaJ s duty is to decide whether the article in cjuos...
THINGS THAT MAKE ONE POPULAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 13 September 1906
THINGS,,THAT MAKE ONE POPULAR. Firs*:, a good voicc is essential to self-possession as good ideas are essential to fluent -language. The voice should be carefully trained and developed. A full, clear, flexible voice Is one of the surest indications of good breeding. Secondly, one may be witty without being.popular, voluble without being agreeable, a great talker, and yet a Thirdly, be sincere. One who habitually sneers at everything not only renders oneself disagreeable to others, but will soon cease to find pleasure in life. Fourthly, be frank. A frank, open countenance and a clear, cheery laugh are worth a great deal. Fifthly, be amiable. You may hide a vindictive nature under a polite exterior for a time, as a cat masks its sharp claws in velvet fur, but the least provocation brings out one as quickly as the other, and Hl-natured people aro always disliked. Sixthly, be sensible. Society neve* lacks for fools, and what you consider very entertaining nonsense may.aooa be looked upo...
CHAPTER XL. The Betrothal. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 20 September 1906
CHAPTER XL. The Betrothal. Mrs. Alexander smiled at the young! .over's ardour, while she regarded his 1 landsomo, earnest face with a look almost of affection, "Mr. Hamilton," she smiled, as he I joncludecl, "to be frank' with you, 11 aiust tell you that I have been expect-! .ng a request of this nature from you." Rupert looked a trifle surprised at chis declaration. "A mother's eyes are very sharp," che lady resumed, "and it ffas not required much penetration to see that you were learning to regard my Vlrgie with more than friendly affection; besides, Mr. Knight told me of the conversation that he had with you at San Jose, and warned me of what I might expect when you returned to. New York. And now I will confess to you freely that I was very much opposed to the Idea of having Virgie become the wife of an Englishman-. I had reason for the prejudice, which I will explain to you some other time; and I resolved you two should not meet again if I coutd help it. I did .ielp it, as you k...

"Virgie Alexander?" repeated Mrs. Pirnnm to herself, as she acknowledged the presentation, and it ataoit seemed as if som^ s^e recalled 1 Oiat taJg-Iorgotten namv and !oo!J^ ' into that delicate, clear-cut face, whi e a vioion from oat of the past suddenly rose to confront her. She saw the tall, slight figure of a beautiful woman, very like this young Ctrl standing straight and proud before her, as, with a face of agony and a voice full of despair, she asserted her own puritv and the child's legitimacy, and hurled back scorn for scorn upon the arrogant woman who repudiated her claim" and tried to crush her with a vile conspiracy. Again she seemed to hear those ringing, prophetic words. "My child is also the lawful child of Sir William Heath, she Is the heiress of Heathdale, and she shall yet occupy the position that righ...
Had a Great Spree on Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 20 September 1906
Had a tireat Spree on Water. There is a member ia the House who has for many rears "been fond of fluid to invigorate. The other day he reauUed to quit—I don't know for how long. On the very day of this resolution, butifiF fore it had time to cool or grow feelrie, he met a friend with whom he had olien eg eut a merry evening, says the Philadelphia Telegraph. . The first proposition nas to go and get a drine. The member—who withal is an original fel\x=req-\ low—said be did not drink, but won *J: go along. They went to a fashionabJi restaurant; the friend ordered wine and the member took water. He managed' to make as merry as his oompauion. More wine was ordered and nv re water, and as the friend warmed uiirior the influence of the active liquor, the member followed ia all the merriment of hi* mood.

Horsley's I>abor Agency, 4.80 Bourke street, Melbourne, reports: — The demand for all classes of labor has been very good during the pa§t week, and the "unemployed" difficulty may now be considered a tale that is told.
