Si t,-ls there anyone whose business it is to look afteor or roads and keep tlen free from wandering cattle ? It does not look much like it. I)uring the last month it has been my lot to be pretty frequently "on the roads, driving about Girgarre and Toolamba, and 1 notice, in some parts especially, that it seems to have become the fashion to turn the cows and horses out, now that the grass on the roadsides is fairly grown, and depasture them on the public high way. A cow on the roadside is not a very seri(lls matter in the abstract ; but our cows seem to have a special inclina Lion to lie down in the middle of the road and take their ease, taking no notice of the approach of passing vehicles, which must either go out of the way on to the side of the formation to get around them, or try to climb the living obstacle-a feat which most drivers do ...

KYABRAM NOTES. (FROM OUR OWN CORItESP'ONDIENT). Kyabram, Wednesday. A very unfortunate and what may prove a very serious accident befell Mr Samuelll Finlay, of Wyuna, lost week.

Mr Finlay's eyes and face were badly scorched, and the damage to hias eye sight is considered to be serious. The shock hIla been very great, and, therefore, consider ilg the ratiher dlelicate normal state of the sufferer's health, a gool deal' of anxiety is ...

GENERAL NEWS. A meeting was held at Brown's hotel, Baldwinsville, on Saturday evening last, to discuss the question of erecting a hall at that place. There was a very fair attendance, and Mr J. Morrissey was voted to the chair. Mr W. Brown was appointed secretary, and Mr H. O. Byrne treasurer. Those present showed their sincerity in the movement in a very practical manner, for on a sub scription list being opened, the re spectable stun of £30 was collected in the room, Messrs Morrissey and H. O. Byrne contributing £5 each. After discussing various matters for the good of the movement, the meeting was ad journed until Saturday week. On Saturday evening last Constable Dainty was compelled to exercise his duty by locking up a man named J. Breen for disorderly conduct in Hogan street. This course was necessary after vain efforts by coaxing and persuading Breen to go home. On being placed in the cell, he rushed past the policeman, and bounded away over a bush fence into Stewart's paddock...

THE KYABRAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1894. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 July 1894
THIE KYWMiAM UNION. PUBLIrsHED EviRIY FIRIDAY MORNING. :-----o- FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1894. IT s.VOUlns strongly of tautology to say that " retrenclunent is the order of the day." Retrenchmnent has now become more than advisable, it is an absolute necessity. And while the whole colony in general, and Melbourne in particular, suffers from this necessity; while the laborer is "docked" a portion of his pay, and the civil servant has to face percentage reductions larger or smaller, it is not likely that Tatura and its institutions will be able to escape the pruning-knife. Until the whole colony and dominion with which our little town is socially and conunercially related resumes that pristine stability which it could boast before the "land bubble" rose and burst, we, both in public and private life, shall have to look very care fully to our purse-strings, and check our expenditure with the greatest caution. And it will probably do us all a little, perhaps a deal, of good ; though it may cause...

A TX11TA , TARTAR inns along the confines of China generally consist of a large square enclosure, formed by high poles interlaced with brush wood. In the centre of this enclosure is a mud house, never more than tel feet high. W\ith the exception of a few wretched rooms at'each extremity, the entire structure con. vists of one large apartment, serving at once for coorllg, eating, and sleeping, thoroughly dirty, and full of smoke and intolerabls stench. Into this plcasant place all travellers, withoult distinction, are ushered, thie lportion of space applied to Itheir accommodation being a long, wide " kang," as it is called-a sort of furnace, occupying more thn tan hrIee-fourths of the aliprttuent, about four feet high, and the Ilat, .nsout I surfcse of which is covered with a reed mat., which the richer guests cover again with a travelling carpet of felt, or with furs.

Home-Bred Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 July 1894
Ilomlne Brc Cattle. Mr. flol?kirk, spleakine itt a meeting of tile \Vest Tevoitdalo M'arioers' ClubIII last week, said the lessbned imports of beef' had no cll'ect in raising the price ; wevo ap peareed to haI'v abundanceu of homuso cattle for the demand. This was proved both by the increased number of catllo in Great IBitain, and by the universal lowering of prices. Taking the supply of cattle for warded to the Monday's Metropolitan markets during the three months ending October 12th, for each of the three lastt years, it was found that in 1884, 31,970, of which 25,1i10 were home-bred ; in 1885j 38,110, of which 29,180 were haomsered; inl 188), 41,3410, of which 31,020 wereo home-bred. This showed that tlh re markable increase, year after year, since 1884, had been chiefly fromn homoesupplies. There had been quite as striking an in crease of sheep and lambs in 1884 and, 1885.

NATURE. Pig Breeding in Denmark. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 July 1894
NATURE. 1ig ILrceeding in Dennmark. In a recont report of the American Consul at Copenhagen, somen particulatu on the question of pig breeding are given. In the first place, with regard to the feeding of pigs, it is pointed out that these animals devour thoir food with great rapidity. Tho front teeth only do the duly of pieking up the food, the aide teeth, from their particl lar formation, being unable to maasticate it sulliciently or to mix it with saliva ;it is therefore, important, in order that the re Juired amount of nourihinulnt ahould bo oerived from the food, that it should he given in an undigeated condition to the ixtent of 50 pir cent. In preparing the food, it is imlportant that it shnould i;h first boiled or steamernd, arid if this is niot possible, thel corn, &'., should either bo groulnd or bruised, or allowel to soakll bu fore I?e ; if roots, they should always boe cut into alices.

All animals that pretend vinlence in their play stop short of exereiPiog it ; tihe dog takes the greatest precaution not to iojtre by his bite; and the ourang.outang, in wrestling with his keeper, atlumpts re throw him, and makes faints of biting him. Some animals carry our in their play the semblance of catching their prey; young ctne, for instance, leap after small and moving objelts, even to the leaves strawn by the autumn wind ; they crouch and steal forward ready for the spring; the body quivering and the tail vibrating with emotion, they bound on the moving leaf, and again watnh, and again spring forward at another. Young lambs collect together on the little hillocks and eminences in their pastures, racing and sporting with each other in the most in. teresting manner. Birds of the pie kind are the analogues of'monkeys, full ...
