THE SPINELESS CACTUS. A Prolific Fodder Plant, (To the Editor). Sir,-This useful plant is not yet much known and it would prove" of great value, to farmers and pastoralists generally, especially in poor soils, or semi-arid localities where vegetation of any kind exists with difficulty During the hot dry seasons or periods of drought, when all other kinds of fodder are languishing or are &lt;}e stroyed with the intense heat, this plant would be luxuriant and being of a rich moist nature the necessity for much, if any water, would also bo greatly minimised, and it would thus prove the salvation of stock owners. It can be readily grown in any class of dry soil or where it is impossible to grow other crops, and after the first few yeans will pro duce about 100 tons per acre of succulent and nutritious fodder which can be fed to all kinds of stock, and it is highly praised by the leading authorities who say that it makes beef and butter of'the best quality. The improved varieties...

SHOPBREAKING AT BEEOHWORTH. Arrest of the Culprit. TVhen the police examined Messrs Shaw Bros.' and R. .Warren's shops, after they were broken into on the morning of Friday last, they, formed the opinion immediately that it was the work of a boy. The shopbreaker had not taken advantage of his op portunity to posses himself of much of the valuable stock with which ho found himself surrounded in these two (shops and his methods were quite plainly not those of an expert, ex perienced burglar. An interview was sought witti a 12-year-old son of a respected resident of the town but tile police learned that he had run away. This fact sorved to confirm them in their opinion that this lad' could tell them all about the offence and their energies were centred upon his dis covery and arrest. A lwy an swering his description was seen at Breton and Tlarrawingoe but their all traco of him. was lost for days.

I ' COUNTRY ROADS BOARD. It is probable that a proposed con ference of delegatus from various municipalities of the district with the Country Roads Board, on the occasion of their projected visit to Wangaratta shortly, will be largely attended. Nearly every council has agreed to send delegates. The matter was before the North Ovens Shire Council on Monday. The engineer said he favoured the proposed conference. Cr Naughtin thought the suggestion of a conference was a good one, and should prove beneficial all round. Cr Way moved that the council favour a conference and that delegates be ap pointed. Cr Klemm, in seconding the motion," said it would be a good tiling if all councillors who could possibly do so would attend the conference. Any of them might offer suggestions that would be beneficial to ratepayers. Engineer, in reply, said the suggestion was to hold the conference of repre sentatives of municipalities first, then delegates could meet tlio Board after wards. Whether a confe...
