EVERY HOME NEEDS ZAMII-BULK. NOTHING LIKE IT FOR CUTS, WOUNDS AND SKIN DISEASE. It really pays to keep, a pot -of Zami-Buk handy in the, home. Mrs. E. J. Miles, Ferndale Cottage,Went worth Road, Strathfield, Sydney, says :--"Our experiences with -Zm Buk form a wonderful record of. success. Once when my husband got badly bitten with a horse, -the' wound looked so angry "that there might have been -serious develop ments, had we not had Zam-Buk handy.

"My little "boy, Oliver, one day fell in the road and inflicted a! deep' cut across his chin. The place bled freely and the child was sick for three days through the shock and force of his fall.

L~-~-l----- 1-~' - STREET DEMONSTRATIONS DIRECTED AGAINST GREEKS. MANY ARRESTS EFFECTED. Serious and regrettable scenes of a riotous character were, enacted in Hannan-street last Saturday night, after the majority of the shopkeepers had put up their shut- ters on the close of the day's busi- ness.: People were on the point of wending their way home when a disturbance commenced, the like of which had never previously occur- red in the history of Kalgoorlie. It had been whispered through the community that an organised de- monstration would be made against citizens of reputedly Greek extrac- tion. No one, however, had imag- ined for one moment that it would resolve itself into an affair of huge proportions. Commencing in a small way, it grew into large dimen- sions. It defied the efforts of the small police force of Kalgoorlie to keep it within narrow limits.. Be- fore the deplorable demonstration was got under some semblance of control, thousands of pounds worth of damage had been do...

Oeeaterr Argus PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, DEC. 12, 1916. GOVERNMENTAL EXTRAVA GANI'CE. Economy of administration should be the poicy just now of Australian Governments, whether Federal or State. In all the belligerent couu tries pcivate individuals are urged to. avoid extravagance; in fact, re strictions are placed on their spend. iut: capacity. In England. Board of Trade regulations insist on simpler meals, abolition of race trains, withdrawal of cheap railway tickets, prohibition of the importation of jewellery, and other measures t-a conserve the country's resources. The need for all this. is obvious in view of the necessity for utilising the, nation's full .strength, financial and physical, for winning the .war. Governments should be the first to show to individuals good examples in the direction of economy, but un fortunately in Australia it is tiot so, either as regards ..the Common wealth or the States.

THE GOVERNMtENT'S EX TRAVAGANCE. In season and out of season the Centralisation leaders denounced the Seaddan Government's financial policy. In four and a half years" the late Ministry created a defcit of a million and a half sterling; which, it was claimed in defence, was caused by two droughts and the war. Mr. 'Frank Wilson and his fol lowers urged, not without reason, that economy of administration should be instituted. He contended that the finances should be straight ened, and the Government should net spend more than. its income. .fice in July, and, instead of causing an improvement, the condition of the State's finances has become 'in finitely worse than it ever was be fore. One of the first acts of the in coming Ministers was to reduce rail way charges on the carriage of fer tilisers and abolish district rates. This. unwarranted action means an annual loss that the Commissioner' for Railways estimates at £56,000. It, is not surprising that, as a conse quence of thcee and sim...
