PELLUEBLA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 5 February 1914
PELLUEBLA. (From Our Correspondent), The total rainfall for 1913 was 16 . 28 inches, and to date 44 points for 1914. The weather on the whole has been changeable and betimes most enervat- ing. The committee of the local school have stirred themselves somewhat and many needed improvements will shortly be made. The rabbit has not died here, as judging by the numbers one sees be- tween Lake Rowan and Pelluebla the " district agrees with him " very well. There are some fine stacks of hay about the district.

TUNGAMAH WATER TRUST The monthly meeting of the above was held on Monday, January 12. The Chairman (Com Fell) presided. CORRESPONDENCE From State Rivers and Water Supply Commission, as follows :— In reply to your letter of the 14th January re- questing that an additional supply of water be sent down from Casey's weir, I have the honor to inform you that the quantity being diverted at Casey's weir is about 650 c.f.m., an amount considerably in excess of the proper allotment. The Numurkah Trust states that the creek there ceased to run about the 20th December, end with the practical discontinuance of that supply there should be ample to provide for the replenishment of the storage at Katamatite weir. It is recognised that all the township supplies should be replenished as late in the season as practicable and that available supply should be concentrated for this purpose. The Commission will be glad to be advised as to how the present supply is being disposed of, what diversions (if an...

BIRD WORSHIPPERS DISCOVERIES AMONG AFRICAN TRIBES Mr P. Amaury Talbot, a district Commissioner in Southern Nigeria, and his wife have just made a remark able journey of over -1,300 miles in the Eket district, a country of rivers and creeks, many unexplored, with a popu lation of a quarter of million Ibibios (says "The Daily Express"). In an interview with Keuter's repre sentative, Mr Talbot says he found customs and ceremonies which appear to liave come down unchanged from the days of the Pharaohs. In some parts the dead are roughly mummified, while underground burial chambers are to be found planned like those of ancient Egypt. He found also traces of bird worship and witnessed a bird dance never before seen by Europeans. Most of the towns have their sacred pool, inhabited by good or evil spirits, to which in the past countless human victims were sacrificed. On two of these holy waters-the Lake of Life and tile neighboring Pool of Hatred and Death-Mr Talbot and Mr Eckin, of the Kwa...
PAY OF CLERGY PROBLEM FOR RECTOR'S WIFE [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 February 1914
PAY OF CLERGY PROBLEM FOR RECTOR'S WIFE The Bishop of Salisbury (Dr Ridge way), in a statement on the poverty of many of the clergy in his diocese, says there are a few parishes-he is thankful that ho is not the patron of any of them-in which the incum bent's income is about 30/ a week. The difficulty was aggravated by the fact that nine out of every ten in cumbents who receive these starveling wages were burdened with enormous rectory houses and large gardens, the tipITeep of which required more than the income of the benefices. Shortly after ho came to Salisbury the bishop received a letter from a clergyman's wife, stating that they were obliged to live in an enormous house; they could afford 110 servants, and she (tlio clergyman's wife) had to do all the work of the house; and at the mo ment of writing they had no coals In the house.

Wright, Ltd., jewellers, o£ 124 Regent street, W., led to two me" appealing at Marlborough street Police Court on Monday (reports "Lloyd's Weekly" on December 12).

The Express. THURSDAY, KEURUARY 12, 1914. The Double Dissolution. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 12 February 1914
THURSDAY, KEURUARY 12, 1914, The Double Dissolution. . THAT there will be a double disso lution within a few months is now practically certain. The Senate with its over-whelming Labor majority can fling the Bills of Min isters back in their faces, with every expression of contempt. . Whilst Labor is thoroughly organised and has definite aims, the Liberal Party always, and inevitably, tends to slackness. Its members are drawn from all sections of the community, who are agreed on the oue basic principal that the individual should be free, that there shall not be a new serfdom with the Trades Union "Boss"' as the modern slave driver. But in order to organise stxcccsbfully it is necessary to go a little further. The Liberal program appeals to the younger. men, and it is they who count. That program has to be scattered broadcast, and the Prime Minister, who is as earnest in the ' matter fas the youngest of those . "he supported in behind him, has scattering it. Absolutely nothing can be ...
