This is the second snake found in Sthis tank; they are rather prevalent round here this year. in Confirmation classes will be held in the Church to-morrow (Friday) evening. The contractor for the new build ing in the recreation reserve, has made a start on the job, and as the contract has to be completed by March Ist. (under a penalty), he will need to shake things up.

Surveyors ire at work on the road from \War tendite creek to Flnders, it laving been taken over by the Main Roads Board, and tenders in sections or the *hole are to be let by MIarch.

PAYING THE PIPER GERMAN RULERS AND COST OF LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 5 February 1914

PAYING THE PIPER GERMAN RULERS AND COST OW LIVING. The continual increase of the cost of living does not only trouble the Ger man worltlng people; it is causing no littlo uneasiness among the German rulers (says the Berlin correspondent of The Daily Express"). For the last three years most of these princes have been asking for "an in crease of pay," the Kaiser himself be ng tile first to lodge his complaint with his people, and the few who have lot hitherto dared, or thought it advisable, to ask for a higher civil list are now busy preparing public opinion in their realm for the unpleasant and unavoid Ible necessity of giving more money for the keeping up of the chief of the Btate. Still more significant, the two or hreo German Federal princes who have so far had no civil list at all think very seriously of having one established, as I their income, which is eithel' derived I from their own (or their wives') for tune, or from the sale of titles, dignl ties, and decorations, cannot s...

By usifng existing institutions and by ipplying to them something like com mon sense his Department has been able in the last few years to put an end to what were known as the horrors of the mixed workhouse. The goats han been separated from sheep, and there had been segregations of classes and classlflCatlon of individuals. Thus Mr John Burns in the debate on Mlr Carr-Qomm's London Poor Law tIiii, reported in "The Daily Mali," May 20, 1911. Very. nice indeed, but it Is not true. Mr Burns' Department has done no Ching of the kind, nor will it ever do anything of the kind. I know that in some other work Iouses not in this one, timid attempts have been made to segregate classes and classify individluals. but no verY successful rosult 'has been achieved. The goat outside the workhouse is often a •hogp and even a lamb Inside the workhouse, and vice versa, according to the effect it has upon him. In any...

REFORM MOVEMENT RUSSIA'S POLITICAL NUItSERY Russia will have enjoyed for a period of 50 years (on January 1, 1914) the ad vantage of local self-government" (says 'The Times," for then the Zemstvos will have been in existence for 50 years. Whatever progress the rural classes in Russia have made since 1864 must be attributed largely to its influence, writes Sir D. Mackenzie Wallace, in "The Times." Besides this, it served as an excellent preparatory school for the Duma, which was to reallse some of Its ambitions and political aspirations. Itemembering all this, we regard it as only right and fitting that patriotic Iussians should celebrato joyfully its 50th birthday, and that the proposers. of toasts at the coming banquets should heartily wish it long life, health, and prosperity in its future career of usefulness. HOPIE 'OR THE DUMA Sir Donald Mackenzie's account in 'The Times," of December 15, deserves particular notice, as it will enable the English student of Russian affairs to un...
