CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 17 March 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. [We do ot necessarily endorse or hold ourselves responsible for opinions ex- pressed by our correspondents.] To the Editor. Sir,— I would like to ask through your valuable column is it true that the Creswick Shire Council, who have recently appointed Mr E. Miskin to look after the water supply for Allen- dale township, are paying him the enormous salary of 7/6 per week ? The duties required of him are heavy—an average daily walk of six miles, look up Broomfield and Allendale town- ships, and inspect all taps at private residences. Since he commenced his service a week ago the supply gener- ally from householders' taps is better ; still in Ristori Town and the elevated portions of the town those who have it laid on yet no water. Cannot a couple of nights a week be devoted to giving those who have little or no supply a better one. When Mr Isaac Robinson had charge of the water supply some years ago he received the princely salary of 10/ per week. Then when Constable Ga...

A HOME MADE HAIR GROWER THAT DOES MARVELS. louring the last few years announce ments have appeared occasionally telling how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have tried it have obtained such remarkable results. One lady writes that immediately after reading the formula, she went to her chemist, aud had him put up as directed, I ounce of I.avona de Com posee, drain Mcntliul Crystals, and ,5 ounces Kay lium. She took this home and, although her hair had been falling out teriibly and she was threat cued with baldness, she was astonished and delighted to note that the falling out of the hair stopped immediately, and the hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In (act, she slates that it has already grown nearly S inches in a little over twu mouths.

rKOSI-ECTORS' KIND. OVER MOD 07.S. UNUAliTHED. Much excitement prevailed on Wednesday in the Coritidhap district when the news was circulated of a rich find of nuggets of nold. It appears that two brothers named Roberts, who are working in the creck near the town ship, came upon a pocket of nuggets. One slug which was unearthed, it is reported, turned the 3;ales at 127 oz. Several more nuggets of a rather sub stantial character were discovered, the whole bringing the total weight of the find up to approximately 300 oz. Naturally the intelligence of Messrs Roberts' good fortune quickly spread throughout the countryside, and the announcement caused great excitement in the neighboring townships.
