COST OF W&TER SUPPL?. COMMISSION'S LIABILITIES. On Wednesday Mr. Grav,M.L.A. and Cr. Kaggatt, representating Karkarooc Council, waited on the Minister of Water Supply, and stated that the Water Commission had recently taken over the Turkey Bottom channel, which had been constructed by the council at a cost of £1200. The council asked that the commission should pay the sum of £1200 expended. Mr. Hutchinson replied that, while the commission had taken over the channels from many municipal councils, it had not paid for tbe co?t of construction. In this case it was felt, ihat a better service would be given -by the construction of a new channel to the east of the council'u work. He would discuss the matter with the commission.

And all the world Is wild and strange; Churel and ghoul and Djinn and sprite Shall bear ue company to-night. For we have reached the Oldest Land, Wherein tho Powers of Darkness range. —Rudyard Kipl.ng. The Sau Mountains (British Somaliland), Nov. 8. Abyssinia—I am glad to bo out of it—is a Christian country. It is popu lated by the least pleasing of black races, and has also a population of witches, wizards, gnomes, goblins, and a large and varied assortment of de vils. Even if you refuse to believe in fairies, good or bad, you will believe, when you have travelled in Mcnelek's land, in the devils of Abyssinia. You can see and smell and hear some of them; and I have even shot one. He was a dust devil, and I shot him four days ago.

FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE] The French Cabinet, with faith in its strength, proposed a vote of confidence th/s evening on the question of the £5>2,000,000 military loan to meet the German challenge, and the measure was passed by 291 votes to 270 (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Express" of December 2). Earlier in the day the Deputy M. Brousse had presented an amendment to increase the loan to £60,000,000 on the score of 1914 budget necessity. Af ter discussion of the Treasury re quirements, M. Dumont, the Minister of Finance, accepted the Brousse amendment. This raised renewed opposition, how ever, and M. Barthou, the Premier, In tervening, declared that he would not engage himself to the proposal to in crease the loan, but held that the £52,000.000 figure was Irreducible. "If the Chamber does not vote it," he said, "it will be another Govern ment which will make the same de mand." Finally the Brousse amendment was t rejected by a large majority, and ju-'it ...
The Outlet Creek Bridge (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
The Outlet Creek Bridge (TO THE EDITOR OF THE DAINUOW AI'.GUS) Siit,—Two letters, on the above sub ject, have appeared in your journal, in each of which "Fair Plav" states that the bridge should be a mile or so up the creek, where the bridge is unnecessary in the wheat carting season. The creek is usually dry in suuimcr, whilst there is a great depth of water at the inlet. The poor farmers along the -lake have to travel miles before they can get to the first crossing, while up the creek ther have got fords, bridges, etc. The bridge would be of great use if it were built across the inlet. Now, Sir, I trust "Fair Play" will take this into consider ation before lie has anything mom t.n gay about the bridge, o ------ -Yours, etc., JUSTICE.

KITCHENER'S GREAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
KITCHENER'S GREAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE A striking picture of the work that Lord Kitchener is doing for Egypt as British Agent-General and of the im pression his picturesque and vigorous personality has produced on the native mind was forthcoming yesterday (says "The Daily Mail" of November 29) in conversation with G. N. Sarruf Bey, son of the proprietor of the well-known Cairo vernacular newspaper, "Al-Mo kattam, who is now in London on the firm's business. Sarruf Bey said: The popularity enjoyed by Lord Kit chener in Egypt is wider and more comprehensive than that enjoyed by any of his predecessors. I think one may safely say that Lord Kitchener is the most popular flguro in Egypt to day. Ho has made all the Egyptians, from the Khedive down to the hum blest fellah (peasant), realise that he is the friencLof the Egyptians and under stands their needs. "EL LORD" AND THE VILLAGERS One has only to go across to the Agency in Cairo any morning to un derstand the hold Lord Kitchene...

AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE RECONSTRUCTION OF NAVAL BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE RECONSTRUCTION OF NAVAL BOARD. The completion of the Australlai Fleet Unit and the enlarged responsi bilities which have boon assumed bj the Commonwealth Government with regard to naval defence (writes an Australian correspondent to "The Westminster Gazette" on December 17). The personnel that was needed to deal with naval matters during the building up of the fleet and in the initial stages of the organisation of Admiral Henderson's scheme was of quite a different character from that which is necessary now that Admiral Patey has arrived in Australian waters and the serious business of training the olllcers and men of the Royal Aus tralian Navy has been commenced in real earnest. Among the changes which are in contemplation is the reconstruction of tho Naval Board. The Government hopes to obtain the services as llrst naval member of a British Admiral of high standing, who will be willing, for a limited period, at all events, to su pervise the important work of ren...

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in "The Daily News.") The death-rate of the United King Jom is 14,000 a year cf the population. This rate expresses the averaging of ome wide variations—variations which express the difference between good 'lousing and bad housing. There are places where the death-rate is about 20 per 1000; there are other places where it falls below 10 per 1000. [t is easier to state these things than to bring,home to the mind the full re alisation" of their meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrible import. To show what a death-rate may be under decent conditions, that of East bourne is about 10 to 1000. That also is about the death-rate of Hampstead. It is also the death-rate of New Zealand. What would it mean to the United "ingdom if the death-rate of the whole "ountry could be reduced to this figure, shown to be a possible figure by actual experience? It would mean a saving In the United Kingdom of 184,000 lives. That is to say, ...

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender,'» "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage,"etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER V1IL—Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Thome's offer of marriage was indeed unconventional. She had im molated herself on the family altar— for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam ily—her mother. She might have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty of his theft. Quite frankly, she had grown to hate her father; she despised her brother. Beryl she loved; hut Beryl with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorne. But her mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thome had supplied the wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earn her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a week. The re...
NEWS AND NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
NEWS AND NOTES . The many friends of Mr. W. K. Dart, sen., who is, in every sense of the term a pioneer resident of the Rainbow district, will be sorry to learn that he was the victim of a painful, though happih', not serious accident on Friday evening of last week. Whilst driving into the town from his farm, accom panied by three ladies, for the purpose of catching the train, he had proceeded as far as McMillan's flat, and when passing from the fipwly made formation near the railway line on to the old road the wheel of the buegy ran into a rut precipitating Mr. Dart on to the ground, lie sustained a nasty laceration of the left hand, whilst^ he also strained his back. However, "be' was able to con ! tinne hia journey, and on arrival at i Rainbow Dr: Perrins examined the old geutleman and advised him to rest for - a time, which he did at the residence of his son Mr. Win. Dart, in Cust strcet. He returned home, after being under the doctor's care for several days, having almost recov...
CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914
CHAPTER X. Some men who leap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro ced at once to indulge in vulgar dis play. Michael Thorne, however, in his private life remained more or less true to the -habits of the plodding young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of 'busi ness rather than pleasure; but he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious llat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the housekeeper could have told one that Mr. Thorne wanted an accurate ac count of where every penny of the housekeping money went. But it did not follow that the man did not revel in the power of his money; in his power to control the copper market; to raise and depress and 'baffle his rivals in the same market. In thiB way he got joy of his money. More than that. It had purchased a whole family, made absolute slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only ono thing beyond its purchase power— love, reciprocity. His chance of ob taining t...
