WANDERING STOCK. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

WANDERING STOCK. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) Sir,-Another Ratepayer desirous of correcting my assertions re Northern drovers, cites a case in which Councillor Hade had occasion to charge a drover with cutting his fences, and another with allowing sheep to trespass on his land. Although he has not written himself about this, it is quite possible Cr Hade had some trouble as' alleged. This is the only case 1 have heard of. I can only repeat that the drovers who passed along the roads in this part of the Shire gave no trouble to me, and 1 have hearJ no complaints from neigh bours. Re the Ranger, I fail to see anything strange in his conduct, be cause he happens, in the performance ot' his duty, to frequently impound cattle belonging to men who only iun , o."-e or two on the reads. Probably these are the chief offenders. The Ranger frequently pays a visit to the road in this district, and always makes a clean sweep of everything in the way of cattle, horses, etc., he finds wandering...

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by cwrespondenee und°r this heading.-Ed.] A NEGLECTED EXPLORER. (TO THE EDITOR FOWLETT EXPRESS.) Sir,-I am sorry the simple sugges tion to change the name of San Remo to Hovell has excited to the ire of an " Old Resident" of San Remo, but I must remind him that sledge-hammer slogging is no argument. Surely he can discuss a subject without being as intolerant and arrogant as a German. He should follow the excellent example of your San Remo correspondent, and write in accordance with good mariners. I am convinced that the attacks on my suggestion have strengthened it, and still must humbly contend that San Remo should be erased from the map of Victoria and Hovell inserted instead | of it. i -Yours, etc., SETTLER. Woolami, August 3.

THEN HE WENT TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

fHEW HE WENT TO SLEEP. Sonic folk's idea, of entertainment is a visit to the morgue. Hero is an example. "It'js not everybody I'd' put to sleep in this room," said the motherly old landlady to her ledger, who had come to that remote district on account of a serious nervous breakdown. "The room is full of tender associa tions to ine. My first husband died in that hod', with his head 011 that very pillow. My dear father passed away on that 'sofa under tho window. Ho 't.'iis a spiritualist, and ho vowed ho would appear in this room again after death, though I've never seen anything of him yet. My poor nepliaw.

Ho was study ing to be a doctor, and there are two whole skeletons and six abnormal livers preserved in spirits in that press/ yon der, while'that, bottom drawer is fi!"* of old bones and skulls.

SHEEP MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

SHEEP MANAGEMENT. i'rotessor JjOiig says.: -Ono of tho most important advantages derived from early maturity is that the breed er is able to get rid of his uethers, and vq to keep, many more cues. If the . old system prevailed, tlio lamljB would be kept on the farm for the winter; more food would be oaten, jind more labor involved, while 'the prcnt subse quently realised on their sale as weth ers would be less than it now is on their sale in siiiiiiner and autumn. I have not noticed this fact adduced sufliciently in the advocacy, ci' early maturity.

CACASE WEIGHT OF ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

CACASE WEIGHT OF ANIMALS. \ There arc a number of rules for find ing the dead, weight of animals by measurement of the living "iirca.se. The j j best way is to weigh the animals and ' then estimate the dead weight. In the ease cif sheep ami eattle, the ear- ! Vase weight is 'four-swvont-hs of tfiie ' live weight,' arid in tlie case or pigs, the earcsiso :>veight is' about. .sevcu nintlis of the live weight. Considerable .variation* occur.' In the case , of sheep, for example, animals weighing i'vtjm about MOIbv to 3001 bs live weight, in wool, will have a carcase weight of 70 per cent of their" live woight ; whereas animals averaging about 2001b live weight will have a eaten so weight of only 63 to 61 per . cent. . There is no reliable method of estimating the weights pf sheep from the measurements. In the ease., of pigs, the accepted rule is to measure, along'the curve of the spine from the square of the .shoulders to the tail head, and adding one-sixth for liead and necfr. Then...

GUNPOWDER FROM TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

GUNPOWDER FROM TREES. One of the industries which Belgiui" and Germany havo hitherto kept out of our hands is a supremely important; one-namely, tho growing of dogwood, which yields the very pure carbon necessary for gunpowder. Hie wood actually used under the name of dog-' wood is that of Rhanuios frangular de-. prived of its bark. This small tie3 grows freely in tho South and Mid lands- of England on peaty mlecious soil, and sometimes cn slightly calcare ous soil, so long as it is moist and well drained. It could easily be grown by tho government on'tho Crown lands of the New Forest in any quantity or on the outskirts of Dartmoor where it occurs already as a- wild' plant. On tlio Continent it is pollarded or eopiced so as to produce long .straight, shoots which are'allowed to develop -until as thick as tho thumb and then cut. There is some demand also for the bark, which is not required- for gunpowder making, so that tho growth should be doubly profitable. Alder is so common a tre...

THE PRINCIPLE OF FEAR. To cast doubts on the bravery of tho Gorman privntos is;, "in my opinion, wrong ("ays Captain Herbert Msddick, otli Lancers, in "A Cavalryman at the Front," in tho Cornhill Magazine).

CARE OF THE HORSE. Tho horse is especially worthy 01 iiwd treatmont, its future usefulness depending ;i good deal on tho . treat ment it receives when young. The time when it is being "broken in" is most important in the education of the horse. Gentleness yet firmness ought to be a prevailing principle cf tlio .-management. It is-not good pol icy to overload young horses, many an animal having been spoilt in that, way. On no account- allow . the ha.* nes;, to hurt tho animal, and some care and interest in feeding should be tak en. Large feeds should not be given, .and irregularities avoided.-us much as possible.; . The kind of feeding will j depend upon the work wlircli is being done.

Perhaps the o»vo dies, or fails to furnish enough milk for llor off j spring, or the lamb may bo one or twins or triplots, and the mother is unablo to furnish milk for all.
