A deputation, representing the landowners of the north-east portion of the Carrum waterworks district, recently waited upon the Minister for Water Supply (Mr Hutchinson), to ask that their properties should be either excised from the district, or that tile water rates be reduced.

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 26 March 1914
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that twvo murderers have recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent. ofcapital sen tences.are carried out in Germnany, the proportion in Great Britain being over 50 per cent. Ilhe newspapers conmmnon ly speak of these German crimilnals as victims of the axe or blocf, without nmch discrimination. By thle German law all capital punishlments must be carried out by beheading, ,but it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevalls. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife If they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long vsword.

CONSERVING HEAT IN SOILS [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 26 March 1914
CONSERVING HEAT IN SOILS Good tillage conserves heat in soil as well as conserving moisture. One powerful argument for the proper drainage of our soils is that the temn. perature of the soil would be very much increased thereby. By pre venting the evaporation of soil mois ture by proper cultivation the large amount of heat necessary to evapor ate the water is kept within the body of the soil. In some experiments conducted at Ithle Rlutherglen Experi mental Farm it was found that the soil under cetlain conditions lost water equivalent to one-tenth of an inch of rainl per day. This equals approximately ten tonlls of water .per day. If there is no external source of heat then thle heat required for the evaporation of the water is ex tracted Itrom the soil. --o A beautiful Estey organ, costing [85, (says the " News "), has been presented by Mrs G. L. \Vilson, to Christ Church, Berwick, and the in strument, one of the finest of its class to be had in Mlelboullrne, will be landed lherein ...
