UNQUALIFIED ENGINE DRIVERS. BREACH OF THE FACTORIES ACT. Prosecultions under the Shops and Factories Act came under the notice of the Brunswick court on Wednesday, when Mr. Levey, chief inspector of factories, proceeded against William Blair and Oliver Oakley, as owners of the Brunswick foundry, and trading under the name of Oliver Oakley and Co., for a breach of the Act in placing an uncertificated driver in charge of a steam engine. Mr. C. A. Smyth, crown prosecutor, conducted the case, and stated that the Crown were simply desirous of warning owners of factories against continuing to violate the law in this respect, inasmuch as it was a practice endangering life and limb. In this case Inspector Martin, who has charge of the district, had pre- viously spoken of breaches of the Act but not desiring to be severe had allowed the matter to pass by. A heavy penalty was not sought, but it was trusted that the prosecutions would act as a warning to others. Evidence ivas given by M EIrjgd...

And these were the words I heard From the throat of the mocking-bird: " I am singing the song my fathers sung When the sea was here and the hills were young, And the surf leaped up to greet the sun Where the corn now waves and the squirrels eon, And the wild sea-mew and the gray galls flew Close up to the feet of the mountains brown, When the sea was here and the hills weie new, Ere thbe torrent bore their treasores down To bridge the bay with the fertile lands, Where the orange-groves in gold' and white Now lilt their heads in the soft warm light, ..

"Here in Aiustralia, fairs are unknown. In deed very little of the old fashioned methods obthin in these fast go-ahead colonies.
