It was accepted, and ,the pair proceeded in great amity. -Arriving, the learned j counsel hurried in, as he had an im portant application to make on the sitting of the Court.

THE HEALTH BOARD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 4 January 1902
THE HKALTII BOARD. TO THB J3DITOB. Sir,—I believe there wan a notice in your paper aboui October last, inserted by the Health Board, to the effect that " no swine were allowed to be kept in the town after that month." Yet, in spite of this fact, it is well known that swine hare been kept in the town, and are still, distributing disease in our centre. Another fact: Individual! are al allowed to live in tents, without having proper sanitary arrangements. Where is the Inspector ? The amusing part of all i5 that the ratepayers are contributing to the revenue of the Health Board to pay a secretary, in spector, and night officer. What do we find ? There is the office of secretary, and ;the night officer is his own inspector, to see that he does his own work well, and report to the Board. Does it not seem utter rot to give a person a contract, and pay him extra to see that be himself carries it out.. I do not blame the contractor, but the Health Board is to be blamed for the loose manner i...

If the ptirtillel bars aae to be taken as a sample, neglected and exposed o ail sorts of weather, I think it is time the committee were called to account for allowing the while anta to eat what has been placed under their care. The mat- is in a similar predicament, thrown from one dies sing i-ootu to another, and otherwise sadly neglected. What has become of the rest of the property it would be interesting to know. Shall we require another £20 to £30 to buy another outfit ? GYMNAST.
CORRESPONDENCE. PUBLIC APPOINTMENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 4 January 1902
CORRESPONDENCE. PUBLIC APPOINTMENTS. TO THE EDI TOE. How, and by wnom are appointments made to billets under Government iu this State? Has merit anything to do with it, or eligibility, or does it go, like kissing, by forour ? A niau in this town applied for a place on the p rmaneut way some months ago, and he r -c&lt;oved a reply saying that his application would be considered. A Tacancy occurred recently, and a man was sent from a distance of sixty miles to fiil it. There is no question whatever about the ability and fitness of the local applicant to hold the appointment. Hot a line was sent to him about the apppint ment at alL 1 he strange part of the whole affair is that, while a map who can get a place and keep it under the most exaoting ganger on any big public contract is calmly ignored, many men who would not be able to make ten shillings a week at piecework are allowed to draw on the Treasury undisturbed, and if One gets removed which seldom happens by the way) he is...

ARTHUR RIVER. (ibc/m otjb cobbbspondent.) December 30. The weather lately has been very change able, Some days the heat is unbearable, while on others the extreme cold is much felt, consequently there is a deal of sickness amongst young and old in the district, many being laid up with influenza.

When typhoid, fever carries off half a dozen victims, and Azrael reigns triumphant, the people of Narrogin will wake up to the neceseity of hav ing a Board of Health, and trying to minimise the danger. We are blest with probably the healthiest climate in the world, and the altitude of our town •; above sea level conduces to its low temperature during the summer months, but with all our advantages we are doing our level best to so vitiate the atmosphere that it is a wonder we have escaped fever in some form as well as we /have, done.'
