Association was held in the Shire Hall on Friday afternoon, there being present Messrs Rae, (president), J. H. McCurry, A. Munro, P. J. Keogh, T. Moore and T, B. Williams. The president said that the first thing to be consid ered was whether the present grouud was too small, and whether it was advisable to recommend a new grouud. Messrs Williams and Moore thought the present ground large enough. On the motion of Mr Keogh, seconded by MrMcCur ray, it was resolved that it was ad visable to secure larger grounds. It now remains for the general com mittee to accept or reject the re commendation. If accepted a fresh site will be chosen. We are pleased to learn that Mr Frank Fitzgerald is progressing favorably at Echuca.

DEADLY FLANNELETTE [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

DEADLY FLANNELETTE Inflammable clothing as a cause of deaths by fire is exposed in a striking manner by statistics compiled by "Fire." The writer says:— "When the fireguards clause was in corporated in the Children Act it was piously hoped that the number of chil dren annually burned to death would be reduced by half. So far as our records k go, the number of infantile mortalities has increased, for the Act is practic ally a dead letter; few penalties are im posed in the comparatively few in stances where proceedings have been taken. The Government did not strike at the principal cause of infantile burn ing fatalities—inflammable clothing." "Very few men are burnt to death owing to their clothing igniting," adds the writer, "but it is different with women, quite &5 per cent, of the fatal ities to women reported being due to the inflammability of their wearing apparel." J The total of. fire fatalities this year to ( November 19, as compiled by the writer, I is 64 men, 201 wom...

Quite -frankly, she had grown to hate her lather; she despised her brother. Beryl she loved; but Beryl with her training ivould have been in a position to earn her living: independently of Inorue. But her mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorne had supplied the wherewithal.

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE. THEIR CAGKS. "No birds and no mammals, from whatsoever part of the wor d or r)i mate they may have come, ever ap proach the duration of life which they may be expected to attain, if they are kept in the- interior of a warmed house," said Dr Chalmers Mitchell, secretary to the Zoological Society of London, referring' to the new open-air installations at the Zoo in a paper read before the Royal Society of Arts last night (says the "Daily Express" of November "-27). The customary heating- arrange ments are expensive but certain modes of killing them. Fresh air is the fun damental necessity. "There is what may be called a boom in zoological gardens." he said. "X am sometimes charged with being too sedulous of the popular side of mena geries and careless of their scientific side.

Mr Jackson had sold a Horse extremely well that day—almost too well in the opinion of purists—and was now very tired.

Secondary Education. Undoubtedly the greatest need of this country is for an industrial system of education that will take up the burden of instruction where the primary system halts, and teach all our boys and girls hovv to be-', come at the same time efficient in dustrial units and good citizens. It is impossible to introduce such teaching into our primary curricu lum is that it is already by Way of being overloaded. Moreover, the child cannot and ought not to be taught duties of maturity in in fancy. The child has rights as well as the man, and it is, the birth right of the child to enjoy a period of childhood. Not until the young ster begins to invade the sphere of adolescence should his tuind be directed to the consideration of serious affairs, and then only by degrees. But the poiut is, every adolescent child ought to be taken in hand and progressively in« structed in the duties of maturity; and that is just wherein our system fails.
