BillBon, ML.A., member for the Ovene, said:-"Those who have tny viewB to express on this question should express them now. I understand from members of the Government that tho vote on this proposal will bo a te?t vote. I most express my profound sur prise to learn, for the first time, that as a body the licensed viotuallerB are extremely anxious for tho abolition of the grocer'n . licence. If that is true, I must say that [ they have been very badly and unwisely led. The licensed victuallers know, as wb I know, that there is a pronounced feeling amongst the Women's Christian Temper anco League, and simila...

CHAPTER XVIII. A Message in the Night. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
CHAPTER XVIII. A Message in the Night. Hugo Franklin almost hnteil his former ally when he realised his astuteness. It was now out of his power to relieve the anxiety which Diana said was tearing her heart. His first act next morning was to write and to tell her that if she saw Skiptou still in the neighborhood she was to know that the detective's presence there was not of liis seeking. For his own part, denied access to her, he was going back to London, to await the expiry of the week she had asked for in which to prepare herself to ex plain her interest in Bulton's assail ant. He had business in London that called for liis attention; he would take this- opportunity of dealing with it. Leaving Skiptou triumphantly in the field, he departed from Uockhurst by an early train next morning. And as the miles slipped away under him he asked himself, over and over again, why "Warren had wished to reconcile him with Hilda. Had he given the true reason, or had he seen the grow ing sympathy b...

Predomin ant was the hideous ..conviction that Diana, in some capacity as yet un known, was mixed -up in this black business that had'kept him and Skip ton so busy o£ late. The thing seem ed incredible; and, yet, what else was he to believe? Why else was she here? 'it was not the beauty of the night that tempted me so far," he said lamely. What was he to do or say now?

WHEN YOU FALL FAR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
WHEN YOU FALL FAR. It is quite a mistake to think that when a person falls' from a great height his heart stops before ever his body touches the ground. Brea thing may be suspended for a few minutes, but if artificial respiration is applied at once, life can be re stored in many cases. This was proved in America, when a girl fell a distance of 200 feet, with no more serious results than some fractured bones and a few internal injuries. She compares her sensations while fall ing to the faintness one feels when travelling downwards in a jerky lift. It was only in the moment of landing that she lost consciousness. Doctors assert that such accidents would not so often prove fatal if artificial re spiration were more generally tried. Just because the patient's pulse is not beating it is a fatal error to think he must therefore be dead. Treat him as you would a man rescued from drowning, and in nine cases out of ten you will .save his life.
CHAPTER XIX. The Shadow of Death. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
CHAPTER XIX. The Shadow of Death. At sight of tliose words, Franklin felt as though lie had received a cold aouclie down his spine. That the threat came from a man of fierce pur pose and of reckless courage he had, by now, good reason to know. And it was easy to guess why the threat had been made. The fellow believed that Franklin was tracking him down, was dogging him in London. His last murderous plan was the natural se quel of that chance exchange of glances in Prideaux-street. Franklin opened the door of his flat and looked out. The white staircase was empty. He hurried down the stairs and questioned the liall-porter. "Who came upstairs just now'" he asked. "Boy messenger, sir." "Do you know the boy by sight?" No, sir. He said he had a message to leave with you, and had been told not to knock and ask for a receipt, as you would no doubt be asleep." "I see. Thank you." He went slowly up the stairs again. There was nothing to be gained by discovering the boy who ha'd delivered the...

About Our Soldiers. MKS HONEYCHURCH, of Wandiligong, was informed on Monday afternoon last that her son, Private Hector Honey church, who is "somewhere in France," bad beon wounded. 'Nothing is known of the nature of the injuries. Mr N. L. O'Connor, solicitor, of Fitzroy, and formerly of Bright, has received word that his eldest son. Gunner Desmond O'Connor, was wounded in the battle at the Somme on last Thursday week. From accounts received from thosf who have returned from the training camps, a complete and costly farce in being made of the drilling and routine work in the camps. There is so littl» discipline in one of the camps that thf men did not even ask for leave when they wanted to go to the township. Volunteering was good and training was carried out in earnest until the result of the Anzac vote was heard, which it is alleged gave a considerable lift to the Noes. Before the vote volunteering was good, but since it has dwindled to a low percentage, and the continuance of the...

Spraying Potato Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
Spraying Potato Crops. Ah anticipated in this column a few weeks ago, blight has made its appearance in tlie potato crops. Warm, moist weather con dilionB, such as ara now being experienced, are favourable to the development of the disease. It may therefore be expected to oauae heavy loas to growers, unless mea sures are immediately taken to control it. ThiB can be done by apraying the growing crop. It muBt be distinctly understood that the operation muBt be carried out beforo the diaeaBe makes its appearance. Xo recipe which while proving to be nn effective fungioide can be guaranteed to cause no injurious consequences to the crop has been discovered. It is, however, better to accept the risk of this happening than to loso the total orop through blight. The beat spraying mixture to use is the soda Bordeaux, which is comprsed of sul phate of copper (blueatone), washing soda, and water. It is mixed in the following proportions: Sulphate of copper 81b. Washing soda ... 10!b. Water 40g...
