Correspondence was received from the Public Works Department that no funds would be available for Public Works Gxpenditui'9 in tho County this year. The Union Bank of Australia wrote re overdraft security.

The clerk reported having supplied the necessary information. Tho Discharged Holdiera' Infonaa tion Department asked tha Council's co operation by assisting to find em ploymen- for discharged soldiers. Mr Parkinson said men could be put on the land fruit growing aud poultry raising, and an instructor could teach them.

Mr Thompson paid a State farm would Ie a good suggestion. Mr Gebhio said he thought tbe Sheenownerß' Association and State Farms could accommodate men re quiring wo ; k.

It was decided the Council would give any po-sibla, and that the Council sngg<->-t the Sheepownors' Association should be a central bureau for returned soidiara seeking employ ment

Tbe Council also suggested a State farm should b9 instituted for returned soldier-

Messrs H. Chapman and G Bar clay waited on the Council. Mr Chapman said they represented tbe Doc'or'fl Guarantor*! Committee of bitr.le River Ha said the doctor bad written to'the commutes Mating that, the guarant-0 was not large enough, as the price of drugs had advanced so much in price'and the cost of living. The guarantee at present was £100, whereas a few years ago was £250. It was V9i*y necessary to have a doctor in the district, and he would ask the Council to make' a subsidy of £50 a year.

Mr Barclay said the practice brought in a certain income, but it was not sufficient with the guarantee. All subscribers were attended at a very low figure
