WAR DEFINE]). (By Dr. Charming.) Public war is' not an evil which stands alone, or has nothing in common with other evils. It belongs to a great family. It imay be said that society, through its whole extent, is deformed by war. Even in fami lies we see jarring interests and passions, invasions' of right,, resistance of authority, violence of force ; and in common life how continually do we see men struggling with one another for property of distinction—in juring one' another in word or deed— exasperated against one another b$ jealousies, neglects, and mutual reproach ! ; All this is essentially war, but war re strained, . heni'ined ' in, disarmed, by the opinions- and institutions of society. To limit its ravages, to guard reputation, pro perty and life, society has instituted govern .'.merit, erected the tribunal of justice, clothed 1 the legislature with the power of enacting equal laws;, put the sword in the hands of the magistrate,' and pledged its whole force to its support. :...

JUDGING AT THE SHOW. TO THE EDITOR • OF THE BOWRAIi FREE: PRESS. .'Sib,—You will kindly ;permit me a space in your paper for the following, although I know it is not . right to comment upon a letter published.in another .paper. In the Scrutineer to-day I notice a letter ?signed by R. Viles complaining against the judging ; at the late show, and accusing some of the judges of tossing a coin, thus deciding the prizes. Now, if this be false, I hope the judges will deny it, and. bring substantial proof to disprove it. But if not, surely disgrace will rest upon the accused, and bring dis grace upon the society. I, myself, cannot say I was ;p'eased with the judges'decisions in some seitions, whether it is from party motives or for the sake of the paltry prize I am not supposed to know. If these little games are allowed to .be carried on the society will not be the.society spoken of in Wednes day's issue of your paper;; for exhibitors, in not get ting fair play, will discontinue exhibiting...

He should not : be ridden or driven,- but he' should be led by tlia halteiv while the man' who leads him; should leave the head free ; that is hold the halfcer-strap at least two feet off from the halter. No whipping or scaling the horse should be allowed. The reason for letting the horse trot only slowly is, that if he is but slightly lame, he will be more likely to show it then. When the horse is turned round to. be trotted back, he should be car^ fully watched ; for if he has any affection in' (he shoulders, or the feet,, be will, in all pro : bability, show a greater ot less inability to I turn properly'.

THE NEW SOUTH WALES CONTINGENT TO THE SOUDAN. THE VOTE PASSED. 64 to 23. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 28 March 1885
THE NEW SOUTH WALES - CONTINGENT*1 &lt; TO THE SOUDAN.^ The -Vote Passed. 64 to 23. Referring to the vote'recorded by the Asssnibly ori1 Tuesday night, the S. M. Herald states:—" The real issue, therefore, was, "Had the Government acted upon a true estimate of the permanent interests of the country ?" It would, have been more satisfac tory had the answer been given without a divison ; but when we consider that the question was an swered in the affirmative by a majority of 64 to 28, that with only one exception the minority were Op position members, and yet that the majority in cluded the leader and some members of the Opposi tion, the vote was significant enough for all practical purposes."
