The Indi Electorate. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
The Indi Electorate. TSBRE is always speculation concerning the representation of any constituefiey in which there in a large number of votes not permanently alienated by eilher the Labour or the Liberal party. It ia theaj votoa which, as a rule, decide the repre sentation in those electorates, says the "Register.1' Although a goneral election is not actually in Bight, Mr Purker J Moloney's proapeota of re-election for Indi aro being weighed already Before the nocacription referendum, Mr Moloney occupied a very safe seat.

Hard Luck. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
Hard Luck. WE note the Jamieson " Chronicle " has ceased publication for the preaunt after 54 years continuous service. Although it in not known when the old Bheet will again be published (all dependB on ciraum stances) we hope eoon to hear that the district has become prosperous enough to warrant its resuscitation Mr T. Still, the proprietor, in bis "farewell" aays :-"It may appear strange to many that we elect to pursue this course, seeing that we have more than once successfully combated the fluctuating fortunes of the ranges. How ever, the conditions under whioh all our prior efforts were made, and those now obtaining, are totally contra distinct ; in the past we had only the chequered for tunes of the old hills to cornba', but to day we have the mista of depression which pall heavily on our environment, added tn the exoibitant prices ruling for all and sundry materials and accesaories which constitute the printer's paraphernalia."
Daylight Saving. FEDERAL ACTION POSSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
Daylight Saving. FEDERAL ACTION POSSIBLE ALTHOUGH the settlement of the coal strike has removed the most urgent rea son for the adoption of daylight saving in Australia, it is understood that the Federal Ministry has not lost sight of the matter. In Tasmania, the clocks have been put back one hour, and this inno vation has caused considerable incon venience in Victoria. It entails, for in stance, the closing at this end of the cable between the mainland and Tas mania an hour before the usual time. Uniformity of legislation in all the States in the matter of daylight saving would remove such disabilities and inconven iences. This fact is recognised by the Prime Minister (Mr Hughes), who stated on Saturday that, although he had not yet had time to go into the matter fully, it would receive consideration when other important matters had been cleared up.
Mr Hughes' Future. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
Mr Hughes' Futura. THERE is a possibility that at the next Federal election the Fawkner seat in the House of Representatives will be contested by the Vrime Minister. It is generally recognised, as a result of his expulsion from tht Labor Party, and the overwhelming vote recorded by the electors of West Sydney against conscription, that Mr Hughes has little or no chance of being re elected for his old constituency. It rejected his pro posal by 16,198 votes to 554Q He is expected, therefore, to look elsewhere. Bendigo and Indi, which cannot be said to have any decided political com plexion, have been most frequently men tioned as likely places. A movement is on foot, however, to induce him to make an effort to capture the Fawkner seat from Mr J. F. Hannan, a member of the "official" Labor party, and it is considered probable that his choice will fail upon this Melbourne suburban di vision rather than . upon a country constituency.

Engineer's Report. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 December 1916
Engineer's Report. MR H. CROWTHER, the shire engineer, reported on Tuesday as follows : 1. Road over Quiun's Gap.-I have in spected the existing road and the track. The formation drains and culverts on the existing road to the foot of the hill have fallen into disrepair. Evidently 110 work has been done on this part of the road for years. The grade of the existing bridle track over the gap exceeds 1 in 8, and little improvement, if any, can be effected by deviation. The fall into the valley of Roberts' Cieek beyond is ex-, ceptioually ste^p, which will necessitate at least half a mile of side cutting in difficult country. Even if several hundreds of pounds were expended on road construction, the revenue from rotes on the locality would not be sufficient to maintain a lightly constructed road more especially if timber carters were allowed to use it. The road would serve only a few landowners in the valley of Roberts' Creek, who come to Bright via Porepuukali. The shire would not be j...

Shire and Engineer. Nexring Ihe olosa of the council meeting on Tuesday, President reported that as a result of the interview with the engineer, that officer would in the new year devoto half of his time to the shire work for a aalory of £275. Now that things were quiet, and there was no likelihood of any more Coun'ry Roads Board work for some time, it was felt the engineer could work for a less salary than that, and Ihe aum of JE230 had been mentioned Cr. Jones said that at the time the en gineer waa given an increase in salary, he had additional officers attached to him These had been taken from him, and it was possible that he would not take ihem again. It was hardly fair that he shou'd he given a Balary for work he had not done. No one had a greater regard for the engineer's ability than he (Cr. Jones) had, at the same time ho wanted value for his money.-Engineer Baid ho was not prepared to come for a leBB salary than the amount stimulated. If he could get another sliiro he woul...

"Beating the Joss." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 December 1916
" Beating the Joss." THE of quoted story of the Chinaman who burnt down his house in order to secure a supply of roast pig has been equalled by a tale 'old at the Tocumwal Police Court a few days ago. A Hindu hawker, who was charged with ne gligently leaving a fire in the open, explained that his horses bolted, broke the swingle-bar and got away. In a fit of anger he gathered some armfuls of wood, piled them in the waggon with all the goods in it, and after setting a fire left it to barn. The waggon was totally destroyed. Singh's explanation was . "Me got wild ; me have no luck with waggon; me sorry now.'1 An unsympathetic Bench fined the man £5.
Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 December 1916
Sporting. CROSS-COUNTRY riders are sometimes placed in awkward predicaments, but an experience which fell to one of the old school is probably unique. Owing to an accident, he had lost the sight- of one eye, but this did not prevent him from following his profession. In taking part in a steeplechase one day and racing between two fences a clod of dirt thrown up by one of the horses in front hit him in the good eye. and for a few seconds shut his sight off altogether. There he was going at top speed with a fence in front of him. and he was wholly blind. The only thing to do, he thought, was to leave the matter to his mount, as he could not pull off in time. The horse, perhaps with a feeling that all was not right with with his rider, baulked, and thereby saved the situation. It was the very best thing he could have done in the circumstances. The rider in relating the incident stated that it seemed a week from the time he was blinded up to the stopping of his horse, though it was in r...

If Food Disagrees Drink Hot Water. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 December 1916
If Food Disagrees Drink Hot Water. "WHEN food lies like lead in the stomach and you have that uncomfortable, dis ' tended feeling, it is because of insufficient blood supply to the stomach, combined with acid and food lermentation. In such cases try the plan now followed in many hospitals and advised by eniment specialists of taking- half a teaspoonful of bisuraied magnesia in - half a glass of water as hot as you can comfortably drink it. The hot water draws the blood to tha stomach, and the bimrated magnesia, as any physician or chemist can tell you, instantly neu tralises the acid and stops the food fermentation. Try this simple plan and you will be astonished at the immediate feeling of relief and comfort that always follows the restoration of the normal process of indigestion. Soldiers at the front and travellers who are frequently obliged to take hasty meals poorly prepared should always take two or three five-grain tablets of bisuratcd magnesia after meals to prevent fer ment...
