An enthusiast (says the ' South Aus tralion Begister') has discovered some interesting coincidences in the recent in tercolonial match between South Australia and New South Wales on the Adelaide Oval, and pertinently asks the question, ' Will this ever happen again ?

. Cliud&Tgli Races (By Our Special Beporteb.) The Chudleigh races took place on Friday last, on a picturesquely situated course kindly lent for the occasion by Mr James Bitchie, ' The Squire of Mayfield.' Mr Bitchie is president of the club, and though he has passed the allotted span of life, b,e was prpsent on his well-known white steed during the races, and took a lively interest therein. The vice-president and committee are all well known as patrons' of the sport, and are aided by a secretary (Mr B. H. Symmons) of whom it may be said, ' he was born for the position.' The liquid and solid refresh ments were hi the hands of Mr J. Nugent, of the Railway Hotel, Deloraine, and in this respect visitors had not much room for complaint. Five events were carded, and a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was spent. It is now somewhere about 40 years since the first race took place on this course. For years during that term no races were held, but since 1891 they have been held annually,...

The Easter Encampment.— Derwent Park and a portion of the old racecourse at Newtown will be the site for the next Easter Camp of Exercise for Tasmanion Volunteer Forces. A Great Clip.— I (states a writer in last Saturday's ' Australian ') have frequently received some sensational weights of fleeces cut by stud sires in various parts of Australia, and occasionally I get the weight - of wool cut by a whole flock. The latter is always interesting, par ? ticularly if the flock is of good size. What I think in the record clip for Australia was cut this year by the Boo borowio flock, South Australia, the parti culars of which have been sent me by Mr T. L. Browne, Adelaide. The total num ber of 'sheep and lambs shorn tin's year was 28,103, and the average weight per head was 91b 6Joz. The 21,660 grown sheep cut an average of 111b 3Joz, and 6,448 lambs yielded an average of 41bl Ooz. This is an oztraordinary return, and shows what can be done careful and skilful breeding. ?

THE DON TRADING COMPANY. AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 9 January 1899

THE DON TRADING COMPANY. ' AN EXPLANATION. In reference to the paragraph in last is sue, from the ' Government Gazette,' re garding the Don Trading Company being in the hands of a liquidator, the following explanation has been made: — Hitherto the. company has been carried on as a limited liability company, and, as such, ksfc year had to pay .£162 as a dividend tax, while other traders, carrying on ex tensive business throughout the.. island; escaped any such tax altogether. The few shareholders in the Don Trading Company feeling the injustice of the law in allowing wealthy merchants to escape taxation, while they were called 'on to pay, deter mined to cease working as a limited liability company, and carry -on. the business as an ordinary co-partnership, thus relieving themselves of the necessity of paying the tax. Had other traders had to bear the impost like themselves it is probable that the Don Company share holders would not have moved in the mat ter.. Further, had the company...

Coiuniercial. The 'Advocate' Office, Saturday Evening. The potato market has, to use a horsey phrase, 'come down a cropper,' and to-day most dealers would not advance on £4 (ex bags) per ton. A fair quantity will go forward per b.b. Kini, the sailing of which is postponed till Monday (to-day), and it will not be a surprise to see her toko away 2,000 bags from this port. From reports received from Sydney re garding the Tekapo's shipment, which left here on Tuesday last, the bulk of them viro turning out in bad order, picking over !-ving to be resorted to. This is not at ?' v^nrprising, considering the delay in transit, nor can it; be taken as an indica tion of the quality of the potatoes .at the port of shipment.; i Had it been possible to get the boat: away to her advertised time, the potatoes would have been sold in Sydney at about the same time as they were actually leaving this port.

The Town Hall Poll. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 9 January 1899

That such a building would add to the appearance, of progress I admit, but at the same time I submit that there are other matters much; more necessary, Beside this; the ratepayers might be allowed' a little more time to enjoy the relief afforded by the reduction made in the still heavy water-rate. The members of the Town Board are mostly rich men ; they should however, remember that the great body of the ratepayers are not so fortunate, many of them jbeing obliged to make sacrifices to enable them to meet their present and growing engage ments. What we most require is Borne-, thing that will broaden the present tax paying surface. ' ' This is much '...
