FAREWELL TO THE CRESSY VOLUNTEERS. One of the best-attended func tions ever held in Cressy took place on Monday, 26th April, when " all Cressy with his wife and family" attended at the mechanics' hall to give a well deserved send-off to those lads who have volunteered to go to the front. The building was packed to overflowing1, and the proceedings were marked with a heartiness which should put our soldier boys in good heart for the fray. The arrangement of the programme was in the hands of Mr S. F. Leigh, J.P., and Dr. Wood played the accompani ments, so this' department was well served. Mr G.

A few months ago Great Britain lent Australia millions, to-day it is lending more millions,like golden streams are flowing to all parts of the Oversea Dominions," whilBt the mother country's own expendi ture on army and navy reaches a total which staggers the imag: ination. So vast are tne resour ces of the Empire that, for the moment, the Treasurer's finan cial difficulties seem to have vanished into thin air, and the one danger is that he and those behind him may be tempted to plunge into unnecessary and therefore reckless expenditure. Mr Cook, as leader, heartily sup ported by the tank ana file of the Liberal party, has supported Ministers wuh splendid Joyalty.
