RETRENCHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 4 October 1902
RETRE NCHME NT. The popular cry of the populace— and one which all State Governments are only too ready to take up-—is " retrench." That it has in its legiti mate form, all the advantages and no disadvantages, all will readily admit. Our own Government has for some time past been using the priiniu&lt; knife in very many directions, and it is because it has done so without first consulting the wisdom of such actions that we feel impelled to enter our protest on behalf of this centre. "We have had very tough fights of late, over, .several questions affecting our interests, and it seems as though the present Government will still further court disaster in a step it has taken under the guise of retrenchment. We refer now to the position of Clerk of Courts for the Katanning district. After the first of the pre -sqnt month the salary attaching' to this office—which was £175 and allow ances—will be only £95 and allow ances. Have we again to draw atten tion to the growing demands of...

THE CASE OF G. A. WITTON [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 4 October 1902
THE CASE OF 6. A. WITTON •■The circumstances which led up to the trial by court martial of Lieut. Gr. A. Witton, and his subsequent sentence to imprisonment for life," are no doubt fresh upon the minds of our readers. We are in receipt of a peti tion for hia-release, accompanied by a circular letter from his brother, ask ing us to obtain signatures to the same, and as it appears to us that the case has been a most complicated one from beginning to end, we readily acquiesce in his request. There can be no doubt that* there has been a " blunder" made by someone, but as the letter of the law has now been satisfied by the execution of three of his comrades, we fail to see how Witton's retention .could more amply satisfy the law's demands. The peti tion may be signed; at the Hebaxd office between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. Following is a copy of the letter received Metropolitan Chambers, 216 Collins a t., Mel bourne, "Victoria.

Further action could then be taken, which would not be the case if it remains at newspaper correspon dence. Youre, etc., . MUSKET No. 2. Katanning, Oct. 1.

BREEDING FROM YOUNG FILLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 11 October 1902
BREEDING FROM Y3UNG FILLIES. With reference to the advisability or otherwise of breeding from young fillies, a well-known breeder of heavy horses writes to inform us (Ftirmer/ Gazette) that he himself has, for years, bred very successfully from „ animals of this age, and has never known any injurious results to have followed from the practice. Much depends; in Teases of this kind, upon the filly herself. If the animal be longs to a vigorous family of horses, possesses a good constitution, and has been.-well " done" in her first and Second seasons, no great harm may be caused by putting her to the stallion at the age mentioned, but, in the generality of cases we find that not only is the foal produced less robust and less vigorous in its constitution : than the produce of a fully-matured mare, bat that the development of tLe filly herself is so much arrested that she very seldom grows into as fine* a mare as another of the same age, and kept under the same conditions, but not bred fr...
THE PIKE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 11 October 1902
THE PIKE STORY. Whilst we are on the subject of j ".big catches," we may inform our ! readers that the tall pike story which j appeared under the >Suuday Survey j heading in our last issue has brought us a letter from the lady who wit nessed the acrobatic feat of that athletic fish. She writes to tell us that the account thereof which was printed in the Anglers News aud Wishers' Journal was "absolutely true iu every detail." Mrs Eade, who, by the way, is the charming wife of a well-known singer, further informs us that this erstwnile finnv denizen of Oulton Broad was "brought home in triumph" by he'rselr, her father, and her two brothers, and eventu illy "stuffed and baked for dinner. ' '* There was more than we could m in stge," Mrs Eade naively adds, and, with perfectly natural pride, con cludes, " We were the envy of many anglers who had been on the Broads for weeks, and had not caught any thing larger than a "tiddler."— Thus do certain devotees of tjbe gentle art have greatne...
WONDERS OF THE WATERS A ROPE OF EELS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 11 October 1902
WONDERS OF THE WATERS A HOPE OP EELS. The Anglers' 2?*ws has killed the sea serpent. Here is the very latest: One Cosmos Eckensode was fishing in the Tulpehocken when a migrating band of " tandem eels" chanced to pass by. The alleged peculiarity of this variety is that when they are making for their winter or summer quarters they move like the aborigines —in single file, at a distance of ex actly six inches apart. When any eel in the procession sees that his imme diate predecessor is lengthening the Bpace, it at once darts forward, catches the other's tail in his mouth, and jerks it into his legitimate position. When migrating, these eels seldom stop to feed, but as Cosmo's bait dropped quickly in front of one of them it took it in, was hooked, and Cosmos gave his pole a jerk. The following eel, true to the "tandem" instinct, seized its tail, and was drawn rapidly away from,eel number three, which also obeyed its instinct, and so with all the others. Cosmos very soon found that he h...
