RCONDEIMNE ARMY SUPPLII SI London, Nov. 2. An important. problem which has not yet been fully worked out, is I how to use, with the most economy, + discarded, and condemned •army 1 supplies. . Many discarded and half-worn boots, and - boots 3 from .the ' wounded, are now repaired for re-Issue to the troops, and there are travelling repair sanops on all- the fronts, with re-! pair depots at many centres.

INCREASED GOVERNMENTAL EXPENDITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916

INCREASED GOVERNMENTAL EXPENDITURE; The Government's estimates that passed 'through Parliament a few days 'ago provided for an in creased expenditure in the Cologial ,Treasurer's Department of £61,s86 as compared with the last year .of office of the Scaddan Government. There is also an increased. expendi ture of £16,100 in the Minister for Education's estimates. In addition, the Minister for' Works. proposes spending. £25,500 more than during increased expenditare of £25,444. All this is, of courbe, apart from an increased expenditure of £98,802 under special Acts-an increase 'that is unavpidable. It is, furthermore quite apart. from loan expenditure.. The . Centralisation . leaders before they came into power were constant ly- urging the Scaddan Government to live within its income. The State's income for . 1915-16 was £5,356,978, - and it was argued. that that should have been sufficient: for a population of some 325,000 people. It was further pointed out that. private individuals...

It is pleasing to find that a body suca as the )federated Miners' Union should apparernty view the gatller sng as highly important, and shou.d have already taaen steps to have their views properly represented.

NOTES FROM LONDON London, Oct. 26, 1916. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916

NIOT S FROM LUONDO (By Our Special Correspondent.) London, Oct. 26, 1916. An interesting description of work -(not fighting) min the tren'ches' has s been sent me by a bombardier "somewhere in France." The wri ter, in the course of his letter, says: -"A dug-out, as the two words sug gest, is a 'home' which is generally dug out. of the earth, and well one knows it; too, after having for per haps a couple of days endeavoured to break one's back digging down to what almost appears to be the home of the 'Anzacs.' There are a host of different dug-out types, from the 'de luxe' affair of the German to what is sometimes called .a .dug Sout, but is mpre often a 'bivvy,' the humble construction of the British Tommy--designed to keep away for -a night or two the bad effects of rainy weather, which would other wise turn him into an 'ever-soak' -kind of affair, and probably send his kit drifting away, perhaps to 'Blighty' itself. One often digs down about 5 ft. in 'one day, and, with a feeling ...

THE PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, DEC. 26, 1916. THE WAR CHRISTMAS. For the third successive year, Christmas Day--sacred to celebra tion of the Gospel of Peace-dawns upon a world of war. Were the fact not indisputable., it would be incredible that such a war -of gijan tic spoliation, ruthless oppression, unparalleledenalavedom, could .have been deliberately begun :.and be re lentlessly waged by European na tions, professing to follow the precepts of the Great Teacher who frst taught humanity the lesson of charity and loving kindness. To the watching shepherds of Beth lehem, over 19 centuries ago, hea venly hosts chanted in gelic chorus--"Peace on earth, Goodwill to all men," as the birth-song of the Founder of Christianity. But the world at large has not yet learned the lesson; nor will it, till the wicked nations cease from trotb linq and the spirit of tyrannic milii tarismn is put forcefully to.rest. In celebrating with. steadfast hope and enduring courage this War Christ m...

LOOK HERE FOR IT. MANY A LOCAL READER WILL BE INTERESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916

LOOK HERE FOR IT. MANY A LOCAL :READER WILL BE INTERESTED. When people read about the cures made by a medicine endorsed from far away; is it surprising that they wonder if the' statements are truet But when they read of cases right here at home positive proof is with in their reach. Read this endorse ment of Doan's Kidney Pills. Mrs. W. Bestio. 54 Dwyer-street, Boulder, says:--"My husband was often laid up for days at a time with severe backache and other signs of kidney trouble He dreaded the backache, for it gave him a try ing time, especially when he had any stooping to do. He could not get proper rest at night, for it is im possible to sleep well when there is a nasty stab-like pain in the back. One day he heard good reports of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. so he :started taking them, and the pain soon got easier, and before he had finished six bottles he was cured completely. I, have also used these splendid pills, and would not be without a bottle in, the house for anything. W...

DEATH OF MR. WILLIAM MARTIN [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916

DEATH OF MR. WILLIAM MARTIN General and deep-felt regret was expressed on the Goldfields Thurs- day when news was received of the death of Mr. William Martin, late of Ora Banda. The late Mr. Mar- tin was born at Clunes, Victoria, on January 24, 1874. He was edu- cated at Clunes, and later at the Ballarat School of Mines. At the latter institution he devoted his time to the study of mining in all its branches. About 20 years ago he came to West Australia, where he took charge of various small mines out-back, including the Car- nage and others. He afterwards joined the staff of the Associated G.M. Co., in whose mine he was shift boss for a number of years. When the Associated Northern Co. took over the Victorious property at Ora Banda, Mr. Martin was ap- pointed as manager of the property, and retained control until about last Christmas, when failing health com- pelled him to resign.

LEONORA Leonora, Dec. 12. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916

LEONORA Leonora, Dec. 12. The exhibition and sale of work held by the children of the Leonora Public School this week realised a nett profit for the Patriotic Fund of £60.
