For instance, the pros pecting vote was asked to )be increased to SR50,000--not half-a-teillion, as "Tilo Argus" puts it; the amount to be distributed at the recolmmendation of local mining councils, constituted solely of practical minling men, who could reconmmend to the Minister the division of the tamount voted, in the various mining centres. The division of thovotehiterto has been admittedly bad, Imany deserving districts being left out altogether, and only those who possessed the influence of strong C(o verllnment supporters participasting.

ALBURY. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 23 April 1886

ALBURY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Wednesday. The slight rains of Saturday have done no great amount of good, just sufficient having fallen to make farmers, graziers, and ameteur gardeners wish for more. Easter Monday will be principally occu- pied by the Foresters' sports, on the Show grounds. All the " merry men of Green- wood " are exerting themselves to a suc- cessful result, and there is every prospect of it being un fait accompli.   The hall of St. Patrick's is fast ap- proaching completion,very rapid progress having been made during the last week or two. When it is completed it will be credit both to architects and builders. Tennis is to be a prevailing fashion shortly. I notice our local stationmaster (Mr Willis) is taking the preliminary steps in the formation of an asphalte court, and there is some talk of a tennis club. Bye- the-bye, would it not be less expensive for the intercolonial competitions to be fought out on local ground. We are the centre,then l...

It recently happened that one of them d ad his attention attracted by a somewhat unusual message that was boeing clicked out from an instrument at Big India, near Kingston, Now York. It stated that a certain physician hit Pine Hill, three mile.s distant, was wanted immediately to attend a young person who had swallowed an ounce of laudaoum. The student operator asked at once for all the partimulars, andi, oit receiving thelil i con sultation was lelhl at the Now York office.

THE LEGAL AGE OF MAJORITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 30 April 1886

THE LEGAL AGE OF MAJORITY. By the Roman law the period of infancy lasted till the seventh year, childhood con tinued till the nubile or marriageable age, which for males was fourteen, and females twelve, and during the period of adoles conco following, males were allowed to manage their own property, make a will, or contract marriage independent of the consentof parents or guardians, but the age of majority was not reached until twenty five. By the English law, which has beeon in force since Anglo-Saxon times there are two great periods into which life is divided-infancy, which lasts in both sexes until the twenty-firstyear, and manhood or wonmanmhood. But the period is divided into several stages, marked by the growing development of rights and obligations. Thus at twelve years of age it male may take the oath of allegiance, and at fourteen both sexes are hold to have arrived at years of discretion, and may therefore choose guardians, give evidence in court, and consent or disagree...

ORIGIN OF SALUTATIONSY. Salutatons in son countries hiavevery dissimilar characteristics, and it may. not be uninteresting to oxplain a few of them Most of our own gestures of salutation and civility owe there origin to the warfare of the days of chivalry, indicating deference, as from one conquered to the conqueror, Thohead movement was simply the hand unarmed; the helmet being removed, the party was at his mercy. The hand un gloved' was iin like manner the Imnd ungauntletod. Shaking hands was the token of truce in which the parties took hold. of each other's weapon hand to make sure against treachery. We consider it an incivility to shako hands with gloses on, and it is contrary to the etiquette of the European Courts to wear gloves is the presence of the Queens. A gentlemaun's bow is but the offer of thile neck to tile stroke of his adversary; nnd tie lady's courtesy is but the form. of going on her knees for mercy. The theory of firing a salute is that it leaves the gun harmless...
