This number was decreasing at the rate of about 600 per week. As there were some 2SO,000 men repatriated alone, this result is a remarkable one and indicates the capacity of Australia to absorb workers. What renders this result even more a matter of comment is the fact that the men were paid at the rate of two guineas a week, with further allowances if married, during the period of their unemployment and until suitable work was found for them. Much of this good result was declared to be due to the citicens themselves, who formed voluntary local committees with cons derable powers to administer the ipbvernment grant and to find posts for the men. christian science case is closed winnifred school closes on account of an epidemic i: � LONDON.
