TYERS. Miss. Collins, ot Tvers, who has been training for a position as nurse in the Bairrisdale Hospital, has passed her examination. Slie will probably follow her' profession in. Melbourne after the winter. Mr. Bert. Christensen has star ted an agitation, with the laudable object of inducing the Tvers peo ple to take more interest in the Tyers mechanics' institute, with the object of securing better ac commodation, re-painting and re novating the hall generally. A meeting will probably shortly be held to discuss the-project. There are a number of residents at Tyers: who, either through themselves or families, use the hall every week in the year, and it is to be hoped that these at least will help Mr. Christensen to bring his project [to a successful issue. When you are not sure if Mr. A. J. Trood, the well-known Gipps land dentist, is at home, just ring up phone 38, and make an ap pointment. Fourteen' years' prac tice-in Traralgcn speaks for itself.

"Oh, you do, do you?" said the offi cial scornfully, "Yes." And the reporter waited, pencil and paper In hand. "What do you know about this ac cident?" the other asked. "Nothing, except that It happened to the 9.15 train," was the reporter's meekly-given answer. "Well," said the stationmaster, "that train came In. on time to the minute." "Are you sure of that?" asked the; reporter. "Of course I am, sir." The disappointed reporter pocketed his implements. "Perhaps," he said, thoughtfully, "that was tne accident referred to."
