MiUNICIPAL LOANS.   At the last meeting of the Shire Council of Bulleen the Secretary congratulated the Council upon the satisfactory manner in which the various road and bridge contracts were being carried on throughout the Shire. Doubtless these works of road-mending, or more properly "patching " were, so far as the mere   contracts are concerned, satisfactorily performed, but as regards the object in view, namely making good roads, they are a decided failure.

It is an indisputable fact that the good roads throughout a district must increase the value of the surrounding properties and add materially to the general prosperity of its population. Every indi- vidual must be more or les...

OPENING OF STATE SCHOOL AT NUNAWADING. A TEA meeting was held in the new State School, Nunawading, on Monday last, to celebrate its opening.
