Re cently Dr Grace Pecl?ham-Murray de voted an earnest i?araraph in an ad dress on hygiene to this special subject.

"Instead," said he, "of being fresh from their rest over Sunday, the men, as a. rule, are healy-eyed. sluggish, and as cross as they dare bhe." His listener promptly diagnose4 the case as that of Monday in digestion. The experience is almost too common to need emplasising. A re form in Sunday eating is all that is re cmuir-id.

She has a sweet face, with large blue eyes and a matchless dimple in her left cheek. ]Jut Celia is strong-minded. I sometimes even think Mamma is a little afraid of her.

TO MEND BROKEN FENCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898

TO MEND BROKEN FENCES. Mr. N. A. Neilson, of Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, has invented a very useful and simple contrivance for mending bro- ken strands in a fire fence. The plan adopted is to fasten the loose ends of the broken wire in keys which also hold the ends of a wire that bridges the frac- ture. The latter wire is then drawn up by means of the plan shown in Fig. 1 or by a roller. As the wire is tightened the broken ends are brought together, and can be fastened with a splice or twist.

DISTRICT NEWS. JINDIVICK. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM VARIOUS CORRESPONDENTS). JINDIVICK. In the absence of feed, cattle and horses are in low condition, some farmers having lost a nmnbcr, and as it will take the remainder some time to recover from the effects of fire and drought it is to be sin cerely hoped that we will get an early spring. On all sides farmers are taking advantage of the mild weather to get rid of the timber brought down by the fires and in consequence we shall have more area under grass than ever before, and providing the weather is propitious we shall recover a good deal of last year's losses. The roads from here to Rokeby are, owing to timber carting, in a bad way, and will continue so until dry weather sets in. The last ten chains of corduroy, leading into the station are in a disgrace- ful state. Unfortunately for us this piece is in the Warragul shire, and as they derive little or no rates from that piece do not sceem inclined to do anything in the matter.
