Roes, on tlio condition of slaughter yards in tho shire, as follows:—l,I regret having to report in condemnatory terms. Whilst 0110 or two of tho yards had fairly good buildings, mostly they were not suitable." But the chief cause of complaint was tho filthy manner in which the business of slaughtering was conducted. In only 0110 in Blanco did I find a yard conducted in-conformity with that cleanliness which should charactoriso establish ments where food is prepared for human consumption. At tho other six yards tho places wore dirty and untidy. Haw offal, blood, bones, slinks and, other refuse wore left lying about,- polluting tho atmos phere and presenting a most dis gusting appearance. A piggery is conducted in good style by Mr Angus M'Donald, but is not regis tered as required." The council's inspector said ho had insp...

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH NEWS. The board of management of the PreBbyterian church at its last meeting decided to hold a "high tea " and social early in October. The anniversary, which haB been postponed for some time daring this year, will probably be held about the same time. The departure of Mr Sadler, wife and family from Cressy, will be a great loss to the local Pres-' ky terian church. Mr Sadler has been big hearted, open handed, and mentally alert in all the life of the church in Gressy. He will be missed. Arrangements are being made by the Rev A. F. Lawson to give religiouB instruction in the Wer neth State school, in accord with the provision made in the Educa tion Act far such instruction. A working bee was called to erect a paling fence at the back of the manse about a fortnight ago. Upwards of twenty work ers put in an appearance, and each gave hearty support to the task on hand. By the end of the second day four chains of fence had been erected and a strip of ground ploughed ...

The Pioneer. CRESSY. WEDNESDAY,AUGUST 11 [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 11 August 1915

CDe Pioneer, CRESS*. WEDNESDAY,AUGUST 11 The Caucus has declared for an income tax riling by gradations to a maximum of 5s in the £. Had the proposal been submitted twelve months ago.it would have •xcited scornful laughter here, passionate protests there, fierce criticism everywhere, except, perhaps, amongst the neediest And greediest of the revolution ary Socialists. Now it is accep ted with a philosophic composure which borders on indifference. At a meeting of a great financial institution like the Bank of Vic toria, the chairman indulged in do fiery invective, admitted that heavy taxation was inevitable, and as to the shareholders, their few remarkB on the matter touched a detail rather than the main feature of the proposal. This is surprising, and it is still more gratifying. We are all proudi of Victoria's magnificent response to th« appeal for men, and those who were disposed to be sceptical as to the existence of a patriotism which reaches the purse, and which makes a rich' m...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily identify our selves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] CITIZENS' DEFENCE FORCE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—At the drill of the above force on Wednesday night the matter of holding the drill on Saturday afternoons instead of at night was discussed. The mem bers present were almost unani mously in favor of the change, but it waB eventually decided to deal finally with the matter on Wednesday night, 11th August. The members of the committee, therefore, desire a full attend ance of members of the force. There are at present 60 members on the roll, but there is no reason why the number should not be 100. It behoves every man, who is unable to go to the.front, to become as proficient as possible in military matters, in order to be able to defend his country if required. The committee trust? that the men of the district will do their duty and come to drill regularly. The force is fortu nate in possessing a capable and energetic instructor, L...
