By so doing you have supplied . a long felt want, and everybody who' has the interests , of the district at heart should put their- best possible efforts forward to make your journal a permanent and strong institution in their riiidst. Having said so much on that point, I now desire to make use qf your valuable columns to draw attention to a matter that vitally concerns this particular portion of the district. It is the question of a water supply for Franklin. The recent dry spell, though, perhaps, causing a good household, has served at least one good purpose, and that is, to force home to residents of this town the urgent need there is for some steps being taken to provide a water supply. It needs no words of mine to commend such a pro posal, as, view it. as we may, it is indisputably ...

A tragic shooting fatality oc curred at Jnglewood on Tuesday, when Mrs ' Puckey, aged 73, the widow of a well-known mining manager, was accidentally \ shot by her son Alfred, aged .29 years.

Though retaining con sciousness, Mrs Puckey never rallied, and death ensued at half past 6 on Wednesday evening, amputation not having been per formed. Much sympathy is felt for the son, who was the unwit ting cause of the fatality.
