VERMIN ON CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 9 May 1891
VERMIN OST CATTLE. To Mil lice. 011 cattle, an American fanner, in a letter to the paper, recommends the following : He uses carbolic crystals, mixed as follows; Slice thinly one pound of yellow bar soap, and inelt it in a pan. Then melt If or 2 ounces of carbolic crystals by setting the bottle in warm water. Turn the melted soap and carbolic crystals into a pail of quite warm, water. Star it well together till it makes good suds. Take a good-sized woollen rag or sponge and rub the suds into the hair until it wets the skin. The suds will kill any vermin on animals. [Nothing is better for killing ticks. He also considers it good for humours and for cleaning the skin. He has never seen any bad effect from its use.
BEINING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 9 May 1891
BEDraa HOUSES. The horse's mouth should be always " felt;" do not hang on by the rein, but touch lightly. If the horse is a slug he will want to stop when pulled at; if high couraged, then the more you pull at him the more he will want to pull at you. A light bridle hand implies constant and instant communi cation between horse and rider, to direct and control. A heavy hand leaves no margin for direction when really required. Moreover, in the event of a stumble or a false step, prompt and timely support from the reins aids to shift the horse's centre of gravity further backwards, and so to save a fall. When, you pull up do so with, a firm and steadily increasing pressure of the rein; not with a,jerk-the latter spoils the horse's mouth and manners also-though you really do not seek to lift the horse's head high up, but simply to afford him a support to his neck when outstretched in his effort to save hie balance. A stumbling Ivors® at once drops his head and neck. Pulling him up ease...
PROVIDING LIME FOR HENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 9 May 1891
PROYIDIlfa LIME FOE HEXTS. The best way of providing lime is to put a lump of lime in the drinking vessel Some of the lime will be dissolved in the water and thuB drunk by the liens. Lime will also assist in preventing the spread of roup through the agency of the water, and it sometimes aids in correcting bowel disorders. It is at least clieap, and will do no harm, whether beneficial or not; but we can safely assert that by keeping a small lump of lime in the water |k will prove of great advantage. JLeboh Bay was well enjoyed by the children of the Millchester State SchooL After planting 12 tees the children were arranged round the play shed, and plentiful supplies of .buns, biscuits, lollies, oranges, apples, bananas, lpi»nna&lt;ifl and ginger ale weee distributed among 220 cheery faces.

AFTEBIJOOF SITTINGS. Sam Fong re-called, said he saw a little mark ion prisoner's arm on 26th Feb. This was the case for the defence.

AFTERNOON SITTINGS. On the Court resuming— [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 9 May 1891
AFTERNOON SI i TINGrS. I On the Court resuming jwr. I5yrne tendei-ed a number of counter pleas. . -? His Honor said it was strange that in a district like Charters Towers, claiming to lime 30,009 people within a. radius of thMy miles, that such a email number of special jurors could be obtained. It pointed to one of two tilings either great carelessness on the part of those who compiled the lists, or else collusion between theofficiale and those qualified to serre, by which tiie latter escaped being placed on the jiMyJist. \ The Associate read the counter pleas put in by M*. Byrne. Mr. Power contended that inasmuch as an order had been made by Mr. JusfciceMans field to increase the Jury panel from 164© 48, a special precept should have been issued in accordance with that order. The order should have been carried out 6trictly as made by Uifi Honor. The number sum moned was only 35. His Honor eaid inthat eaee, if there were, my, six misdemeanours, a special juiy of 48 furore wouldbe n...
LATE SPORTING. TURF GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 9 May 1891
TURF GOSSIP. (BR HERMIT) F KID AY next is a date which must be carefully borne in mind by horse owners, for on that day entries have to be made for the handicaps in connection with the Towns ville Turf Club Annual Meeting, run on June 18 and 19. The races which require attention are the Corinthian Cup of 40 sovs., Townsville Cup of 200 sovs., Separation Handicap of 65 sovs, Aplin Mile of 80 sovs, Town Plate of 140 sovs, Ladles' Bracelet, value 35 sovs to first and 5 sovs to second, and the Farewell Handicap of 40 sovs. As the date of closing, Friday next, is the second day of the Hughenden races, and as most of the horseowners are likely to be away at the Western town, it would be a great con venience to them, and uerliaps result in the obtaining of a, few additional nominations, if Mr. Elliott were to arrange with Mir. S liter to receive entries for him at Hughenden. " fo-^o," of the Townsville Bulletin, in forms me that by the Barcoo, Mr 3. Annin^ landed a two-year old colt recent...

Charleville News. CHARLEVILLE, May 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 9 May 1891
Charleville News, May 1. The union demonstration passed off peace- fully and quietly this afternoon. Between 650 and 700 men took part in it, half of whom were on horseback. All wore a piece of blue ribbon in their button hole. The procession, headed by a band, circled the town, winding up by dispersing on the out- skirts near the pound yard. All legitimate business is at a standstill, and it is generally considered that should those who may be manipulating the strike wires persist in the present course of conduct, the district will be under the influence of lawlessness and crime. Droving is about at a standstill, and intimidation haunts the main public highways. Charleville, May 3. The position of affairs here is unchanged, except that extra vigilance appears to be observed by the authorities. Men from the far west, old and young, have been collected here, but the town is orderly so far. The guards have been increased at the railway and public buildings. Charleville, May 5. The com...
