WEST.- ' The price' of a' good-many things 'be sides liberty is vigilance, and in these competitive ? 'dayr when the ' cities are scrambling for the tourists' patronage, it is well that the country centres should be watchful of their interests. Tasmania is becoming more and more recognised as the Switzerland of the South — the playground of Australia — and the capital has consequently had its annual contri butkm of the tourists' gold. With its magnificent harbor, dotted with Her Majesty's warships, its vice-regal hospit alities, and by reason of the fact that it is the seat of Government, Hobart is specially advantaged ; indeed, but for these things and the tourists' season, the lot of the city on the Derwent would be as. unhappy as that of the policeman famed ^ui^modern -op'era. ?'This year ^i^pl^V.ims' Roused' |rom .'Us long 'Soflnn'o...

TAINTS IN MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 15 February 1899
TAINTS IN MILK. f A bulletin by Professor Bussell, of thf 'Wisconsin Experimental Station, treats oi the cause, nature, and prevention of taints in milk. Ho divides taints under two, general heads— (1) those produced by living organisms, and (2) those due to the absorption of odors, or to the derange ment of the normal functions of the am J mal. He discusses the bacteria of milk! the manner in which they get into milk,' the effect of temperature on their growth,1 and the specificfermentationswhich canse taints in milk and cheese. The direct ab sorption of taints before and after milking, the discrimination between directly-ab sorbed taints and biogenic taints, the treat ment of tainted milk, and the method ol eliminating taints, are treated in local order. In concluding a comprehensive list of suggestions as to the care of milk, animals, and utensils, Professor Bu&sell has this to say : — ' In caring- for milk, it should bo' remembered that two things axe necessary — (1) to ...
No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 15 February 1899
No. 2. From Burnio' to tho River Roman ono travels in a comfortable' carriage on tho Emu Bay Railway Co.'s railway. Tho speed maintained is not great, as the trip ; takes five hours, but the running is, smooth, and the passenger is as comfort able as sitting in an armchair. The cost is 21b 6d first class. Not to dilate at length on the construction of the railway, I must say that the company has per formed wonders to^ormtruct in so short a time a lino through such a country. The work, although light for somo 10 miles, is for the remainder far heavier than any other railway work in Tasmania; cut ting after cutting so deep that you can hardly see the top out of the carriage windows, and much of it through hard rock. The scenery in parts is beautiful, though uninteresting in others, and no matter how busy a traveller should he, reading, sleeping, or playing ' penny nap,' ho should suspend operations and have a look at the park like country around Hadfield, where the long, clean grassy ...

Pugnacious Women. BELABOR CONSTABLES WITH PALINGS. A BUGGY CHOPPED TO PIECES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 15 February 1899
. . , Pugnacious Women. BELABOR CONSTABLES WITH . *; ' PALINGS. .A BUGGY CHOPPED TO PIECES. An extraordinary disturbance is re ported to have occurred at Monwonga, near Forbes, New South Wales, in which two constables named Brandon and M'Rae were sevorely injured. The officers visited the township in_ search of somo goods stolen from a store in Forbes. They were not successful in their quest, but found a buggy which they believed to be identical with one taken from a blacksmith's shop in Forbes some time ago. Then: next step was to arrest a man named M'Lean in connection with this matter, and thoy succeeded in doing go, though he presented a rifle at them. While they wore taking M'Lean into custody the officers were set upon by two women, who battered them about the head with palings, considerably injuring them. They kept hold, of their prisoner, however, and drove tho women off. In the midst of this attack several local residents made a rush at the buggy and chopped it to pieces. T...

The Biter Bit. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 15 February 1899
j The BiterVBit ?? ? . ? — ' . ' ' * This is the story as it was told to me (writes our Stanley correspondent) by a .reliable person.' Away down in a hut at Green Point recently a number of brawny - sons of the soil sat around around the fiio spinning yarns over then: evening pipe. : The subject turned on the time when' in younger days some of them had ' va moosed' many a garden. It was mentioned that there was a fine , strawberry bed loaded with the luscious fruit quite handy. The remark, though to all appearances made casually, was really for the benefit of one of the company who was a recent arrival. The bate ' took ' and the party were quickly in motion, and on reaching the locality spread them selves out. The new - comer was . soon alone; and he was shortly chal lenged in a gruff voice, which was fol lowed by a bang bang from a gun. He ^ took to night, but was prevented from re turning the way he come, ~f or across the path was a sentry, and again there was a discharge of firea...
