NICE SORT OF BENEVOLENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914

The mayor of a small provincial town in France recently had the following notice promulgated :--" After analvsis at grocers' and wine merchants'. eat ables and drinkables that have been pronounced injurious to health will be confiscated and distributed among the arnous local benevolent institutions." The woman to do great things be-t is the one who does little things well. Slisery requires actiu.on, hIappell repose.

But the moment any one of the issues mentioned is tackled in business-like fashion, a nim ber ot divergent views are warmly championed. At .cevery turn State Mimsters, ani Commonwealth Ministers who are in consultation with them, find themselves face to face with the financial issue. Taking the last figures, which the reade...
