THE Federal :capital at Canberra appears to be in a "stickit minister" condition. ThTis is a great mistake. It is necessary for the development of the Commonwealth, and can be made a very profitable investment. Its establishment is the only way to prevent a repetition of such ex pensive and ridiculous freaks as transferring the Executive offices temporarily to Sydney. It will also teach Australians that the Federal Constitution is an expensive reality, and not a "scrap of paper." There is no Federal leader at present on either side of politics, nor is there any Federal Press. The Coochin-Coochin estate is ad vertised again this week. There are 102 farms, of an area from eight acres to 238 acres, containing rich lucerne land--"'superior in quality to anythiig t? be found on Bacchus Marsh," so says Mr. W. Grant, who inspected the property. See advert isement (or illustrated supplement) for further particulars. Those who propose to visit the estate should lose no time, as the Sale day ...

"He could wait," they said, "until the morrow." On this sabbath day, 2,000 years later, a nation, in-ith a crippled hand, stahnds b.efore Christ's Church and asks for help. The need is great. .The response is urgent, it cannot rait until the morrow. S But do you need reminding of the story.

' GOLDEN POINT SCHOOL To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-The report of our local Health Officer, to the Ballan Shire Council last week, in which he notes the removal of the State school from Golden Point as a preventive for an: outbreak of measles,- can .only be regai'ded in the light of an elabor ate joke, perhaps paralleled by. the scene from Voltaire's "Candide," in which un bel auto-du-fe is recom mended as of perfect cure for earth quakes!--Yours truly, A. BYRES. P.S.-As regards the healthiness of the present school site, it may be remarked that there is a screen of four old slaughter house sites, and the Blackwood cemetery, between it and the rest of the township of Blackwood.

WIRTH'S CIRCUS [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 13 March 1915
WIRTH'S CIRCUS Is coming to Bacchus Marsh on Wednesday next, 17th inst., with a new programme, which includes some of the best performers procur able. A sensation in the programme is the performance of Mussa Mamiev, Russian Cossack. Another perform ance which draws forth gasps of amazement is that of Alfredo, the flying man, who is justly described as a mid-air marveT, for he accom plishes wonders on the trapeze. Wezzen's Bedouin Arabs appear in whirlwind tumbling, gun spinning and pyramid grouping; that is unique in many ways. From Amer ica comes Madame Beiza'c, the mil lionaire lady horse trainer, with some wonderfully educated horses and ponies. She makes an inter esting challenge, whereby advent urous spirits may earn £50 by re maining a certain length of time on a revolving platform, on which her ponies do some tricks. Rov lands' Family Society Circus comes direct from England. Several ladies and gentlemen walk over the backs of four .galloping horses attached to a drag in a be...

Vera smiled, as she. passed on with -an armful-of the nodding-whitifloweras. Ralph passed slowly into the coiser vatory and closed the stained-glass door behind him. Then he crossed the tiled floor rapidly, as it his eyes were all that could be desired, and slipped up a glass panel at the far end of the con servatory. From this point there was a sheer fall down the cliffs on to a hard, sandy beach below. "Just the same," Ralph muttered. "Nothing altered. And just as easy." He crossed the tiles again and pass ed into the great stone flagged hall in his slow way. Then he proceeded to light his pipe and strolled into the grounds.
