"Have you seen my horse and cart?" cried

Joseph Farquhar, when he walked into the police station. The constable on duty informed him that the horse and cart were in the police yard

and then asked Farquhar why he had left the

vehicle in the street at night without a light on it and without having the wheel securely fastened.

As the explanation was not considered satisfac-

tory, Farquhar was charged with the two offences. Constable Hoath stated that the cart had been standing in the street for more than an hour. He was fined £1 on each charge.     Keen criticism of the Railways Commision policy of introducing 40 ton trucks was expressed by members of the Waubra Farmers Association  

at their annual meeting on Wednesday night. The president (Mr. W. Coutts) said that Mr. Glapp was disregarding the voice pf the people.    

The associations balance sheet showed that the years receipts amounted to £7684 /3 /3, and that the debt balance at the bank was £851 /8. W. Coutts was re-elected president for the fifth   time with Mr. D. Edmonston as vice-president.  

Messers A. Fraser, G. Fraser, A. Clarke, W. Smith, G. Coutts, J. Ferguson, J. Flynn, E. Gollop     and L. Yates were appointed to the committee of management. Mr. W. Miller was elected secre- tary, Mr. F. Parker auditor, and Mr. Riley   treasurer.          

Many letters have been received from different   parts of Australia complimenting the cmmunity   ????ing committee upon the programme which   was broadcast at its last session.

The funeral of Mrs S. ?????? formerly of

Marong, took place on Thursday. She was aged 86 years.

The difficulties experienced by municipal coun-

cils in maintaining roads owing to increased costs were referred to by Councillor F. Parker of Lexton at a meeting which was held at Waubra

on Wednesday night. He said that metal could be crushed and put out for 6 a cubic yard some

years ago, but now the cost was 11 to 12. The temperature on Thursday morning was   down to 26deg.        

At a sitting of the land board on Thursday the district land officer (Mr. C. J. Joy) recommended the application of Alexander Caldwell for 20 acres at Spring Hill. He also recommended that 21 acres in the parish of Clarkesdale, in the estate       of H. E. Adams, be forfeited and made available for selection.  


..¡?Píqijouttl", liuve been Mihmittcd (o tho Marong Shire Council by Messrs Lambell and Canny,      

engineers, for a reticulation water service for     Bridgewater, at an estimated cost of £1900. In       the proposed plan it is suggested that arrang- ments be made with the Inglewood Water Trust to supply water from the Inglewood Reservoir for       the domestic requirements of the township of   Bridgewater through the auxiliary 7in. main to be     put down fiom the Loddon River pumping station     to the reservoir. The pumping service is to be   installed as an auxiliary for replenishing the reser   voir in periods of shortage of water by pumping   supplies from the Loddon River, and under the proposed project the new service could be used for   the dual purpose. It is stated that if the project   is approved by the Inglewood Water Trust and   the Marong Shire Council it can be financed by     a rate of 3/- in the £1 on the municipal vaulation with a minimum of £3 per annum for each tene-
