:Railway Itetrenlchi nent WITH a view to ascertaining to what extent further retretichment can be made in. the railway service, without, impairing its efficiency, heads of de partments, we .learn, have been con : fidentially c: ircularised "with a view to the Comnimissioners having definite information on which to'go.

Growing Fears in Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 5 February 1915
Growing Fears in Germany. A CORRESPONDENT who has just re turned from a visit to Germany, has furnished the " Daily Chronicle" with the following impressions: 1" In the towns along the Rhine, in Germany, primitive fish and fruit market halls have been created. As in England a sentry guards every bridge; at important bridges even as many as four or five sentries are posted, as is also done at important road crossings. Several persons, chiefly officers, have been shot by sen tries for not stopping when challenged, so that some time ago ah order was given for the sentries not to shoot when not beforehand informed about certain suspected individuals. " In every train compartment plac ards are put up asking the people to help authorities guarding bridges and tunnels by keeping every window closed while passing over or through them. In the early days of the war bombs had been thrown out from trains in many parts of the country, and caused much damage. "The enthusiasm which still pre vails...

IN MEMORIAM. In loving memory of our dear son and grand— son, AUBURN REGINALD EVANS, who departed this life on Friday. February 7th, 1911. Not gone from memory, not gong from love, But gone to his Father's home above. Through all pain at times he'd smile, A smile of Heavenly birth. And when the angels called him home He smiled farewell to earth. Heaven retaineth now our treasure, Earth the lonely casket keeps, And the sunbeams love to linger Where our darling sleeps. How we miss thee no tongue can tell. Some may forget thee, but we never can. Inserted by his loving mother and grand parents.
BUNGENDORE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 5 February 1915
BUNGENDORE NEWS. Mr. H. Edmionds of Ingledow, met with a severe accident whilst cutting wood. A chip flew up and cut the upper lip through to the gums, which necessitated him paying a visit to Dr. Blackall, who succeeded in fixing the incision without having recourse to stitching the severed parts. Although suffering great pain I am pleased to state that Mr. Edmonds is able to pursue his usual avocation. Our local town band having been silent for several months has made another start under their old master, Mr. J. Ward; and l hope the young fellows will stick to it and make a success. The rabbit industry is in full swing ; there is at least on an average about 3,000 pairs delivered daily at the freezing works. The weather has been very warm of late but occasional sea breezes make the nights very pleasant.

Garden and Field Calendar for February. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 5 February 1915
Garden and Field Calendar for February. The weather has been as we fore casted. The present spell of heat ,is a bit trying for some crops, 'uut just the thing for tomatoes, etc., and will also give color and flavor to fruit. Keeping the surface loose and clean is the. chief factor in successful growth during hot, dry weather. In orchards, especially, on no account should crops of weedis be allowed.- They rob the trees, and, if not ploughed in, the soil also. Apply water to the roots, not over the surface. Three fourths of the water used is only waste. Fodlder is certain to be dear during, winter, and the grower who has good sup plies will be on the safe side. All available land should' be cropped, or prepared for cropping. A repetition 6f January weather is likely-mon soonal rains, tht:nlert6orms, and squalls, with interven:ng cold snaps and sea-breeze. Be sure that all drains, roofs, etc., are in ordi3r. Early frosts threaten. KITCHEN GARDEN. Sow cabbage, cauliflower, swedes and al...

Police Officer's Record. -t- After over 40 years' service, Senior-Ser- geant Goodhew, of Taralga, has resigned from the force. In 1874 he joined the force under Capt. M'Lerie, his first appointment being on the Gold escort from Bathurst to Sydney. At the time of the Kelly Gang scare he was sent to Cootamundra as an at- tack was expected there. He was also at Cootamundra when Moonlight stuck up the Wantabadgery station, and narrowly missed being present at the capture of Moonlight. But he assisted Inspector Carroll in escorting four of the gang to Sydney. On numerous occasions Senior-Sergeant Goodhew showed great ability in dealing with stock-stealing cases. He secured £70 out of £100 given by the Queanbeyan Stock-Stealing Preven- tion Association for the capture of the Wat- son brothers. He also spent three weeks searching for the Dora Dora blacks. Since 1880 he has acted as C.P.S. His defaulter sheet has not been marked. For the last 23 years he has been stationed at Taralga, and i...

WINEFIELD, 10 Calder Road, Darlington, Sydney, says :-Some time ago my little girl, vera fell on a broken bottle and cut her ankle to the bone. Within a day or two the wound fes- tered and inflamation spread so badly that we began to fear that the child's leg was poisoned. &nbsp; " Vera was crippled and in great pain and the nasty wound showed no signs of healing until we began to apply Zam-Buk. " This soothing balm eased the child's pain wonderfully, and drew away the inflammation, and thoroughly cleansed the nasty place. As I continued to use Zam-Buk the wound began to rapidly heal until now Vera's foot is quite sound again.: " My son, Keith, was also cured of a bad shin, got through stumbling up against a stool.
