Mr. Jae. M'Crodie, Acting Chief Inspector of Schools, bas boon appointed Acting Under. Secretary for Education. The estate of the late Mr. F. W. Hume grazier, of Tarongo, near Burrows, has been valued for probate purposes at £68,170. Some hot temperatures were experienced in the country on Monday, the reading at Bourke being 107 degrees. In Sydney the record was 91.9. Af ter years of negotiation, an arrangement has now been made by which Australia will be credited with the profit made on silver currency within the Commonwealth. There appears to be no prospect of the Tariff Commission being appointed for some time yet. Mr. Reid says the Government had not yet got over the first and main step by finding suitable men. The Japanese have captured the German steamer Batetan, which was endeavoring to run the blockade at Port Arthur. The Batelan was formerly the British steamer Thales.

BUNGENDORE A YoUzR man named Colvorwell met with a severe fall from a horse last Sunday evening which rendered him insensible for a consid erable time. Dr. Wilson was ac once sent for, with the result that the patient is now much better, and will shortly be about again.

Country Telephone Communication. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 25 November 1904

Country Telephone Communi cation. ExPEDITIovs and cheap facilities of travelling and rapid means of communication are two essentials where competition is growing with increased rapidity. It is not invariably the case that we find railroads and means of transit interwoven through the bush and sparsely populated tracts of this State, but in many of the western districts cheap means of telephonic communication have been resorted to by way of utilising trees, fences, and so on, for carrying wires, instead of having to erect poles incurring a heavy expense. The Postmaster-General has been persuaded to give due consideration to the matter of adopting this principal, thus cheap. ening the cost of lines through many sparsely populated districts, and in one case already an estimate has been received for a line eighteen miles in length. But the figure mentioned, whether it is above what the Federal Government is preapared to give is not yet considered. The price asked is nearly £18 per mile. ...

WITHr. Wm ARE INCORPORATED Queanbeyan Times, ;Bungendore Mirror & Caiitainis Flat Miner. FRIDAY, -NOVEMBER 25, 1904. The Season. Tug prospeots of the forthcoming harvest is still very gloomy, and the rain is apparently as - far off 4s ever. The heavy westerly winds, which haive been of almost daily oo currence during the . past 'fortuight, have played great havoc with the crops and grase. Where a few weeks ago' the fields were clothed-with green pasturage -the scene is now converted to one .pitiable .to behold. Nothing remains but immaturely ripened grass which is a threatening sourosof danger in the case of bushfires, which inevitably will be heard of in a very short period. Great vigilance should, be exercised by all landed proprietors to guard against the pos sibility of an outbreak. Shearing in many of the local sheds is nearing an end, a good clip has been shorn, *eudering this season as far as practicable favourably compaiable with that of last year ; but, the man who ...

COMPULSORY RESUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 25 November 1904

COMPULSORY RESUMPTION. THE Closer Settlement Bill is now before the House, as proniised by Mr. Carruthers and his party. The Act is remarkably like the old free-selection Acts over again. There are nearly the same provisions as to acquisi tion of land, compulsory residence, and payment by instalments. Nothing is new but the fact that the land to be purchased, instead of being original Crown lands, con sists of estates that will be resumed from private owners. In some cases, these estates, no doubt, are made up of aggregations of free selections, taken up by small settlers under the old land Acts, and transferred to big holders. Without wearying our readers with the intricacies of legal phraseology, the Bill may be summarised as containing the following features: The Crown is given power to resume compulsorily any estate of the value of, 4P0,000, or upwards, which may be needed for Closer Settlement. This is to be fixed by the Closer Settlement Board, a body which consists of the Pre...

GUNDAROO [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 25 November 1904

GUNDAROO ON Monday Mr. J. J. Reid, of "Ever- green," Back Creek, near Gundaroo, suf- fered a severe lose through fire, a large shed containing a quantity of hay, a waggonette, and several sundries being totally consumed as were also two small stacks of hay standing in the paddock. From the meagre partic- ulars which have reached us it appears that some Mr. Reid's children were exploding the heads of matches with a toy pistol, with the result that the hay in the shed took fire, and as a particularly strong wind was blowing at the time it was not long before the flames spread rapidly. Had the direction of the wind been other than westerly nothing could have saved the homestead. A quantity of grass was destroyed, the fire having spread a good way across the paddock before being checked. Mr. Reid's loss, which amounts to quite £50, is unfortunately not covered by insurance.

AN OLD IDENTITY Passes Away at the Age of 86 [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 25 November 1904

AN OLD IDENTITY Passes Away at the Age of 86 YESTERDAY morning news reached Quean heyan of the death of Thomas Rutledge, Esq., J.P., which took place at his residence (Carwoola) at half past eleven on Wednes day night, after a brief illness extending over a few days. Deceased had been an invalid for a number of years, and was, therefore, more or less confined to the pre cincts of his own home. The name of Mr. Thomas Rutledge is well-known throughout the length and breadth of this State and may be coupled with those of the early successful and enterprising pastoralists who have done so much in converting the forests of New South Wales into fields and pastures that we may gaze upon with pleasure to-day. That Mr Rutledge prospered in his venture in station life is beyond dispute, and a few words regarding his rapid acquisition of hundreds of square miles of territory in New South Wales is explanatory in itself. Mr Rutledge was, born at Cavan, Ireland, in the year 1818, and immigrated t...

Women's Sore Feet. ZAM-BUK SOOTHES AND HEALS. $ I ax a canvasser," says Mrs. Margaret Gunson, of 157 Hoddle st.,West Richmond, Melbourne, " and am, therefore, constantly on my feet.

Seeing Zam-Buk advertised, I pro. cured a pot Before I had used half of it these sores were all healed, and the hurning iWritating feeling had left my feet. The abothing effect of the first few applications was indeed wonderful. I shall never fail to recommend Zam-Buk where a reliable heal ing balm is required."

THE JOYFULNESS OF FOLLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 November 1904

THE JOYFULNESS OF FOLLY. WHAT a pleasant thing is folly I Only those who know very little, or (better still) nothing at .all appear entirely happy. For whereas a fool sin cerely believes that he knows everything, a wise man is by constant proofs reminded that he knows very little. But stay ! There is some thing wrong here. This philosophy won't do. Is ignorance, after all, really happiness I True a very old proverb assures us that " 'tis folly to be wise," but, like most proverbs, we suspect that this one must not be taken too literally. A certain miser when young buried a hoard of gold in a secret place, intending to dig it up for use when he grew old ; but his miserly spirit prevented him from ever believing that he was sufficiently old to need it, though he lived to a great age, As a matter of fact, the. miser was observed burying his gold by a man who dug it up and made off with it the very next day; but the miser never knew this. Here, now, was a case of ignorancebeing bliss. B...
