In few details of his everyday life is the average cyclist 80o careless as in his treatment of a bicycvle, and yet it is probable that none othee of his pis sessions repays with such'generous in terest any slight attention bestowed up vn it. Few mn venture out into the world without having their boots polished, their clothes carefully dusted, and a general air of respectability in parted to their appearance by the pro cess known as "groonAng," but how many take the snmallest trouble to pre serve the good looks of a bicycle,. or even to keep it in decent running or der. The question of appearance is, of course, chietly one of personal taste, and we.do not suggest that it is neces sarily a reflection upon a rider whcl his machine is dusty and travel stain ed; but there is often a connection be tween cleanliness and efficiency, and a cyclist who neglects to Imaintain his mount in good riding condition is cer tainly losing soime of the pleasure that ...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 20 January 1914
MINING INTELLIGENCE. Mr F. W. Holst, in his monthly Ilin ing guide1 has the following in refer ence to the Cathcart Central mine: *Strong selling of these shares takes place almost every day, and although no reasons are given for the recent fall of 20/ per share, a glance at the work ing plan shows that panelling is ra pidly overtaking the opening up parties, and, as a length of about 500 feet of wash between the two south-west reef drives is yet. undrained, it may. mman .a partial suspension of panelling. opera tions for a time to allow the ground to drain; also to open up a, further extent of the gutter south-east. For the 12/ paid in dividends there has been roughly 1200 feet of the gutter taken out, so that there now remains about 4800 feet- of lead to work, if it all proves payable to the Langi Logan boundary. The last washing -of 4 fa. thoms from the most extreme points down the lead gave the high return of 61 ozs.

WIELUTEI. At the examination for merit and qualifying certificates held in Novem ber last, the Wickliffo State School scored great success. Three candi dates were presented for merit certifi cates, and all succeeded in gaining the coveted honors.. The two who sat for the examination for qualifying certifi cates passed in all but 'one subject. They will be examined in that subject on the occasion of the next visit of the district inspector. These successes re flect great credit on both teacher and pupils, especially as two of the can didates for the merit certificate were unsuccessful in their attempt to gain the qualifying certificate in November, 1912-two months after.. the -present head teacher took 'charge. They-have, therefore, covered the work of two grades in less than twelve m'onths. One of the candidates for the qualifying certificate was laid up with a broken leg for two montus during last winter. The successful candidates for m'rit certificates were :--:Bessie Ford, -Mav M...
