OPEN COLUMN. 1 This column is absolutely open to our readers to express their opinions. KANGAROO YARDS. (To the Editor). \ "Kangaroo" writes:-"I notice that a start has been made to eract life yard in the park to accommodate the kangaroos recently given by the Goul burn Council. 1 was sorry however, to see that the man who was erecting the yard was the Park gardener.,Now hasn't the gardener got enough to "do withdut having this extra work piled 011 him? Surely the keeping of the flowers, etc.. alive during this hot I weather is enough to keep him occu pied-and more important too," than | the housing of a couple of kangaroos. Further, lie is there as gardener, not as bush carpenter. As a ratepayer, II have watched the transformation of I the park from its unkempt state to I its present creditable appearance, an,d I think that when work of this nature requires to be done, some of the I Council's general staff or an outsider | should be entrusted with the job."

THE FODDER FAMINE. (To the Editor),. "Sufferer" writes:-"I saw the fol lowing in a country paper recently, with regard to the shortage of fodder and the high prices ruling. Perhaps you could 11 nil room, for it In the "Witness." It Is most interesting: A Government that Is game enough to pass the-Wheat Acquisition Act-and to seize-all the-meat supplies in the State, ought to got at the real bottom of the drought trouble in New South Wales-they should tell the men who lmve starving sheep ;and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of 'acres of agrl* cultural land, that if ,they don't culti vate a portion- of It-f-nvell, somebody else will. People*talk about the awful losses of . stock and the high prices of fodder, but whose fault is it? Why, the fault of the people themsel ves. I know one big landowner, who is spending nearly £100 per week, buy ing fodder for his sheep, who does not cultivate any of. his land-who never thinks of putting a few hundred acres under lucerne- who does hot even gro...

RAIN SIGNS. (To the .Editor), .Tanner" writes:-:"! think that rain will not long be delayed. Nat* ure's signs are always the surest, and 1 have been noticing lately, for. one &lt; thing that the ants are more active in I their movements; another thing winch I is very noticeable is the distinct blue* ness of the skies of late. When this is so, rain always comes along at no . very distant date. If one cau judge I by the croaking of frogs as a rain I portent, the desired change is not far I off. I see by .the "Witness" that Mr. Wragge does not hold out any hope' Mr us until May. "What we will do if I he la right, 1 don't l nrw. Some of us fanners win nave .c :!ie war,or somewhere."

Level Crossings. DANGER OF GETTING UNDER TRAINS. HOW TO OVRECOME DANGER. A TOWNSMAN'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 26 March 1915
Level Crossings. ?ANGER OF GETTING UNDER TRAINS. HOW TO OVRECOME DANGER. A TOWNSMAN'S SUGGESTION. "Somebody will get killed yet!" This is the opinion often expressed by per* sons who have to mako use of the lev el crossings which connect the north ern portion of the town with the main business thoroughfares. Trains come Into Young station at all hours of the day and night, and as they often run to a length of 50 trucks, there is con sequently not enough accommodation between each crossing. So it hap pens that residents on their way to and from business, often with a limited amount of time at their disposal, are confronted with a huge trainload of trucks, with seemingly little inclina tion of moving on. Sometimes ped estrians walk along the line and get round that way, but too often the dangerous practico of getting under the trucks is resorted lo. A railway ofllclal told us that it was not an un common thing when a stationary train gave a whistle to see three or four heads hurriedly...

BATTALIONS OF SUFFRAGETTES! "DON'T LET THEM CAPTURE VuU.' London, March 24th.-"Eye Wit* ness," tlio oinctal observer at the Bri tish headquarters in the Western Thea tre, quotes from letters which show the astounding credulity of the Ger* mans. I One, written from Magdeburg, on February 28th, aays: "Saveral battal ions of suffragettes have landed at Havre. Doa't let them strateh. out your eyes, and above all don't let them capture you. That would shame ycu before the whole worid. England can only last a month without im ports, so the blockade will soon end the war." A great many letters describe the lack of necessaries and express an earnest desire for peace, the general Impression gained from them being that undoubted distress exists unions the poorer classes.
