In 'the course of * a recent speech the Marquis of Salisbury said, ' Nothing is better for a strong party than a strong Opposition.

For the Farmers. : . THE CATERPILLAR PLAGUE.-; - ? ; In reference to the plague of caterpillars now attacking the ' crops and grass, an Orbost correspondent i- pf thi',' Austra- lasian ' mentions a plan which he tried many years a»o when fanning on ''the Pentland ??Hills. In order to -save on oat crop he ploughed a furrow 5in deep around the paddock, and placed a quantity of freshly-burned lime, at 'the rato of-bout lib. to the foot, in the trench. The lime had previously been Blacked, bu^' ? was hot. Nest morning, he says, there '? were cartloads of dead caterpillars, 'and- ' , the crop was saved; while in. another' '' field that was not protected fully -one- :J_ half the crop was lost.

HOG CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 17 February 1899
' HOG CHOLERA; . . - Hog cholera attacks animals of all ages, but at times older hogs seem to be able to withstand . the disease better than young pigs. ? ; The cause of hog cholera , is the in troduction into the body, through some avenue,- of the specific germ of the:disease, which isknownasthehogcholerabacc'Tus. ; These gennB, like all minute forms of life, may be carried about in many ways. The time elapsing after the nnimalB are exposed to the germs, before the disease manifests itself, vanes from four or five days to three or four weeks. The srmDtoins are some what variable. In some cases it takes a very aeute form, the animals living only a day or bo ; while at other times it may run a lingering course of three or four weeks. In some outbreaks quite a large percentage of the cases will recover ; while, at other times nearly every animal affected rwi'l die. Generally the first symptom noticed is that the animal refuses his feed. There is apparent weakness of the hind legs, ach...

LAUNOESTON PROCUCE MARKET. Launceston, Thursday. In the produce market fur business has been done during the week. Millers are so full up with wheat that they are ? only buying in very small quantities, and one city miller is reported not to be buying at present. Consequently 2/8 is the best price in the country and 2/4 in_ the city. Some farmers do not intend to thresh wheat at present, and are stacking it. In some places yields have gone up to 50 .bushels to the acre, but the average is about 25 to 40 bushels. . A consignment of over 800 sacks of oats was sent to Syd ney this week, the price paid being 1/4 to 1/6J but the latter figure was for a really prime sample. The present price for Algerian is 1/4. Potatoes have sustained a fall, and now the best price is 6/ per bag, or £3/10/ to £3/15/ perton. Butter is un changed, and prices are very firm. Tomatoes, owing to the hot weather are coming in very fast, and are selling from 2/6 to 4/ per case.. Other lines are un changed. , ? ....

THE SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. OUR SPECIAL REPORT. POTATOES SELLING AT £4/10/. NEXT WEEK'S DELIVERIES A £5 MARKET EXPECTED. Sydney, Wednesday. Deliveries in all kinds of produce were light at the Redfern railway station to day. On the wharves the draw on pota toes was steady at £4/10/ and downwards to £4.

EMU BAY PRODUCE MARKET. , - Bumie, Thursday. Notwithstanding the decline in the Syd ney potato market, growers have not been much inclined to operate this week, and consequently the bulk of arrivals were booked on producers' account, the offer of £3 yesterday and up to £3/5/ to-day being insufficient to attract sellers. The ss Glan cus, which sailed at an early hour this morning for Sydney via Devonport, took away 940 bags potatoes from Stanley and 607 bags from Burnie. The ss Tekapo this afternoon shipped 410 bags potatoes at this port. Adding to those figures the Stanley consignment by the Tekapo, it will be found that a total of considerably over 2,000 bags has gone from this part of the coast for next week's delivery in Syd ney. Other lines were without material alteration to-day.
