HOME v. COLONIAL LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 15 May 1914
HOME v. COLONIAL LAND. SMr. 'Primrose McConnell writes in the London "Dairy" ;-There is at the present time a tremendous amount of literature issued concerning investments in laid in the colonies. One point which stands out, however, is that land at Home, compared with any elsewhere, is comparatively cheap. One reads of farms ousting from £30 to £80 per acre in New Zealand, of fruit farms in Bri tish Columbia which are worth from £20' to £30, and of even "homestead" farnms, which have only, as it were, got a bare dwelling-house and wire fence, being worth anything up to £5 per acre. Now good farm land at Home, right in the centre of civilisation, wiith a full equipment which it has taken genera tions to accomplish, can be had a) £20 per acre. It can easily be seen, there fore, that there is no comparison be tween the two. Why should anybody go out to the wilds of British Colum hia or Australia or anywhere else, and pay £20 or £30 for a decent. farm, when they can get the same thing ...

"It does, indeed!" she said, struc:k with his manner, "Now, if you, Mrs. Staerner, wereo quite satisfied withi Leonard's deepest love, you would not sit here, day after day, hour after hour, with only books as your solace." "We may continue art ini heaven," she said wistftully, but she ,crimsoned and clasped Iher hands. - Long had she pondered ei othe ouri ous anomalies, injustices, anid ironies of life. She mightl be lonely, be even forsaken; but here, on this now thres hold of art, she could take her phice; hero atleast was .an aim, and reRjose must come. Some-word afflatus ha-I stolen into her brain. "By the way, have you read these. translations of Sehmnertz I lent you?" he asked, '"es! They are crude. .

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 15 May 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") There wore some matters of general interest dealt with by the Chamber of Agriculture at the last quarterly meeting. It was reported that the attempt to hold a conference of the States on tthe question of the bulk lhandling of wheat had not met with success, owing to the fact that organi sations in other States did not think that any good purpose would be served by the conference. The chairman (Mr. McLcllan) said that bulk handling would come in New South Wales in time, indeed it would be adopted by all States in the fulness of time. it -was a big matter, and the Govern ments must proceed carefully. The chamber expressed itself as opposed to an increased duty on superphosphiates, which must raise the price. No legis lation should be passed which would di minish thei production. The chamber was also opposed to any further duty on sheepskins exported from the Coinm monwealth. Two delegates were ap pointed to give evidence, if the need arose, before th...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 15 May 1914
Owing to the large amount re ceived during the past month for rates the council had a credit balance at last meeting of £116 i2s 7d, instead of the usual sub stantial overdraft. The Orbost Shire Council is in viting applications for an engineer and poundkeeper, both of which offices will be vacant before next council meeting. The names which have been adopted for the streets in the sub division of Mr A. Perry's land, adjoining the northern boundary of the township of Orbost are as follows: Stirling, David, Mawson, Evans, Bowers, Oates, Wilson, Scott, Cameron, Reed, Perry, Shackleton and Martin. The lo cality ought to be very suitable for summer residences. The list of names suggests the Polar re gions, at any rate. Steps are being taken to have the trustees of the hospital reserve gazetted, and as, owing to the lamented death of Mr A. S. Saun ders, it will be necessary to no minate at least one new trustee, a public meeting is to be held on Wednesday next in the Mechanics' Hall for ...

A Giraffe in a Railway Truck. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
A Giraffe in a Railway Truck. Responsiblc for the transit of a giraffe from Liverpool to London, a railway man managed to get it upstanding in a truck ;but the stupid thlhg declined to lie donll, or even tobe seated. He coaxed it, pleaded with it, and tried to let It down, but in vain. The giraffe was hopelessly dense. It gave the man a stony stare, and continued its Inelancholy clatter on the truck floor, " What are tha struggling with, Jim?" asked the goods guard with a winsome smile as he walked by. " Well,' replied the panting servant, " Buffin calls him a jarafra; but a'll call him a long-legged, clattering fool; and a'reckon tha'll lvave some strugglln' wI' him tiysen when 1' train gets t' first bridge. If tha doesn't tie his neck in a knot, he'll have his head knocited off i" -From " Our Railvways" for February.

At the last council meet ing Mr Answer was agsin in attendange and clatmed that the road had ni:t been made trafficable, as'was stipulated. The Engitteer said it was, and the residents had expressed themselves as satisfied. MrAnewcr contended that tte worst part of the road had not been touched, and made a sporting offer to the presi dent if he would personally inspect the road: Mr Answer to pay hint £1 per day if the road was as stated by the en gineer, and the president to pay him (G.A.) £1 per day if it were not. The president did not exhibit any desire to accept the offer, and Mr Answ...
CATARACT ON THE EYE. A PREVALENT BLEMISH IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
CATARACT ON THE EYE. A PR.EVALENT BLEMISH IN HORSES. A congenital disease, often observed il'horses in particular localities, is ca tara.ct. This consists of an opacity in one of the deeper strtuctlres of the eye, known as tile crystalline lens, that is situated immediately behind the pu pil. The effect of this opacity is to obstruct the p-ssage of ligllt to the rc tiln, and so cause partial or onllplete bhndness, depending upon the extent to which the disease has progres?sd. Opacities of the cornea--the transpar oent, iembrano that forms the anterior coat of the eyeball--must ilot bo mis taken for eataract. \VWhen cataract is well ldeveloped the pupil of the o Iais 0 wlitisli or grey i 'tsh appear , so Inut s iall cctlracts re quire close obs rvation foi their det e The.
