IMPORTANT. Concerning Nome parts of the district news corles but so'ldm. Tlis is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no ntll-p.ln lous power of knowing what is halppeiinm in all the area of circul:ation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and ciause the silence to c:ase ? If no one else is doing it for your dis. trict will YOU try on these lines? Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents. con certs, matters touching the industries, etc. Write your name in some corner; not for printing, but for good faith. Write the names of persons very dis tinctly. Do not bother about grammar or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. ' Write on one side of the paper only. Give information but let criticism alone.

PMernda Election. 1it. J. J. KENNEALLY. Mr. Kenneally, the labor candidate for Mebinda; on rising to speak, was Aecorded a hearty feeoptidn. :lHe istatedl that he again .ame forward a$ the selected candidate and took the opportunity of thanking the pjco-ple of Alexandra for the support accorded him last elcbtion. There were now two parties in Parliament and he'had hoped thac there would only be. two candidates, viz., bLbor -and'.Fu sion, but unfortunately there were five, and be trusted that the friends of Measra Lcokie, Thompson and Hunt would use their influence to induce those gentlemen to withdraw in order that there should be a clear cut issue between Mr. Harper and him self. He thought the duties of every mem ber of Parliament should be explained on the platform as laid down by legislation. Al though we had had 40 years of liberal legis lation the only relationship that appeared on the statute books between the people and. the member was that the people should pay the member s...

SUBMARINE VOLCANOES IN THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 4 March 1910
SUBMARINE VOLCANOES IN THi PACIFIC. .,~---.-- Captains who have lately crossed the Pacific report evidences of gig antic volcanic movements midway botween Seattle ( on the extreme north-west coast of America ) and Japan. Substantial signs of unus ual activity were found in a thin Alm of ashes.on the water's surface. .Thisa eruption has to all appear -.nce,. changed the entire trade cur-. -rent of the Japan stream nearly 500 llea .. 9 it ,true. course. The pre-. pence if"'volcanic dust on thF?-rthijl Pacifip waters is no new thing. Thei i'hango in the Japan trade current is another matter. A divergence of the stream to the distance of 500 miles ploath would make the change very apparent in the weather of the two. latitudes. That trade currents are influenced by land obstructions goes without saying, but there would have to be a - very, considerable change in the submarine topography of the old course of the current to effect such ab change.

Points of a Clydesdale Draught Horse. By P. R. Goanox.n Some old friends whom I met at the last Brisbane exhibition, knowing that I took an interest in pinu judginlg, urged me to contribute an ai ticle on the subject, so that is cou.d be pre served as a permanent record. I have selected for this paper the Ctydendale heavy draught her-c. I may explain that the values of the different painsa given are merely suggestive; dtlffent. breeders' associatinns may a'aesi tie; values differently. A matter 0l great importance is the proper apportioning of the points so as to enlsure that judges and breeders shall not overlook any one point, and the system must prove an education to young bre edors Ln-] agricultural students. For gi eater facility in c!osely criticising a horse the j.oinits are grouped. GUroup 1 relates to pedigree, and the points allotted number 16, namely : 1.

" THE CAMORRA, A TERRIBLE SECRET SOCIETY. .---4--. There sl no country in Europe where the conditions of life-for the mass of people-have improved so ' much during the last few years thau in Italy, and yet Italy is the one country in Euroue where the secret society remains a scourge of thy populace. And of all the Italian secret societies the Camorra is the moat dreaded, for its tenticles reachl all over the world and are directed not only against individuals but against combinations. Blackmail and murder are the favourite weap ons of the society. During the last elections an at tempt was made by one merchant of Naples to defy the Camorra.

Yarck.. From a Correspondent. On Sunday, 27th February, a very successful harvest thanksgiving service was held in the Presbyterian church, the Rev. Alex. Macdonald officiating. Fruit, vegetables, grain, flowers, etc., decorated the church, and the whole scene was beautiful to the eye and reflected credit on all concerned. The members and friends of this congregation are most energetic; everything is carried through with earnestness, and in consequence the work of the church goes on smoothly and pleasantly. The managers, and especially the assiduous secretary and treasurer, de- serve to be encouraged for the time and attention devoted to the interests of the church. It may be mentioned that the attendance at the service was large, the singing was hearty, and the offering liberal. On the following Monday evening a concert was held in the church, after which all tihe goods were disposed and the proceeds given to the treasurer to in- crease the funds.
