Retirement of Cr. Geo. Maxwell. It will come as a surprise to rate payers of Wangaratta Borough to learn that Cr. Geo. Maxwell has decided to retire from the council. He notifies ratepayers that his term of office expires in August and in timates that he does not intend to seek re-election.

The Braddon Clause Excuse. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 July 1914

[he Braddon Clause Excuse. The particular horn of the poli tical dilemma ou whicii the Fusion has mostly deeply impaled itself is the financial horn, and the wrigg ling indulged in to get off that horn has caused wonder and amusement amongst the electors. Mrst of the wriggling occurs when the impaled Fusion tries to prove that the Fisher surplus is really not a Fisher surplus at all, but a Fusiou surplus. " That surplus," thev say, " would not have been possible if it had not been for the splentM 1 arrangement made by the Liberal with the State Premiers in 1909, whereby the Fisher Government during its three years of oflice was enabled to handle an additional twenty millions of revenue. It was our arrangement that made the surplus possible." A short history of the Braddon clause, the arrangement substituted for it, and what occurred uuder that arrangement will show how absurd that claim is. When Federation ;vas established there was a clause in the Constitu tion known as the Braddon...

The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, For him no bink account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, , Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its.losB, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise."

THE LADY SEXTON. At Crowla'nd, • near Spalding, Lincolnshire, n remarkable" church controversy has suddenly developed lis a consequence of the action of ■the Rev. S. C.
