A Warning to Building Society Directors. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 28 January 1887

A Warning to nuilding Society Directors. A writer in London Truth of November 18, comments as follows upon the tax i system adopted by somo of the English building societies : — The Judgment delivered by Mr. Justice Kay last week in the case of the Oxford Building and investment Com pany is such as to strike terror into the hearts of careless or dishonest directors of companies generally, and of building societies in particular. The directors of this building society have been fouud jointly . and severally : liablo. for over payments made by them to the tune of £44,433. Although tho rules of the society especially provided that dividends should only bo paid out of ' realised profits,' these directors had in the most reckless manner gone on paying dividends out of capital at the rate of 7^ per cent, per annum, regardless of a large propor tion of the property on which the Com pany had- advanced having become depreciated or unproductive.

Succulent Food. I At tho present time in Englaud thero is in progress an interesting discussion on tho values of hay, cookoil or steamed food, silage, and grass, as food for stock. The subject is almost as important to Australasian stoclcowners as it is to Ensrlish farmers, and thereforo we muv devote a fow lines to it. Professor Wallace, in his recent lecture on Cattle Feeding, delivered boforo tho Newcastle Farmers' Club, spoko of tho great impor tance of succulent food, such being the natural food of cattle ; and ho pointed out that one of the strongest argumonts in favour of silage was that it furnished a succulent food, as a substitute for roots when tho crop could not be prolitably, grown. He also remarked that by soak ing dry food iu hot water much of the qualities of ? succulent food could ; be i imparted to it. Tn making these obser vations,' Professor Wallace expressed opinions which are generally held by all practical farmers. But the eminent authority, Sir John B. Lawes....

\ Wife EtecoTcring Against her Husband.. Mr. Beetham, II. M., Christchurch, lias decided (says the Otago Daily Times) that it is competent for a wife to sue her husband for contracts entered into between each. The circumstances of the case in which ho gave his decision were stated by him as follows : — ' This is a case in which tho wife is plaintiff and her husband defendant. In September, 1885, the parties executed a deed by which they agreed to live separately, the husband agreeing to pay to his wife 7 shillings a week for her sole and separate maintenance. The wife further agreed that she would not institute any proceed ings for maintenance so long as the seven shillings per week were paid. Tho pay ments are now in arrear, and the wife seeks to recover the sum due, £1. Learned counsel for the defendant, who witnessed the deed, contends that the wife cannot recover against her husband on a contract debt except for the protec tion and security of her own seperate property ; in othe...

Mr. P. Smith's maize crops, and negotiating   two or three more fences, the boat, was floating   on an inland sea extending for some miles, the   only thing visible on its surface being the roof of Mr .Sullivan's house on the plain, and in the distance, some black dots denoting the fences bounding the roads to Lismore, and Casino. It was a very stiff pull against wind nnd tide, and it required several applications to a bottle of Robertson's three-star. to fetch the lane between Bugden's and McPherson's paddocks, on the South Arm of the river at the embou- chure of Pelican Tree Creek, at which spot it was intended to make the channel for the   return trip. The current at the lane was fear-   fully strong, and although it had fallen nearly three feet — judging by the drift on the fences — was strong evidence of the force of the flood waters when they broke over the banks of the river, and creek, and caused such dire loss...
