A Requisite Foumalily. — In August, says the Portland (U'. S.) Argus, no provision was made this last winter for feeding and lodging tramps. A vagabond went into a police-station and wanted to sleep there. 'We only lodge prisoners,' said the sergeant behind the desk. 'You only lodge prisoners,' repeated (he vagabond, meditatively. 'That's all,' was the response :' You've got to steal something, or assault somebody, or some thing of that kind,' again repeated the vagabond, thoughtfully. Then he reached across the desk with his long arm and knocked the sergant off his stool, saying, as the officer got up with his hand to his eye, ' Give me as good a bed as you kin, sergant, 'cause I don't feel weii to night.' Miraculous Escape fhom Death. — The special reporter of the Evening News writes : — At Gun ning, after the festivities atleudant upon the opening of the railway, there was a continuance of gaieties.

The late Charles Long informed us that at one iime he saw' Gardner lift from a tow-boat a puncheon of corn, containing at least twelve bushels, and, swinging round, deposit it on the sand. In so doing he tore the sole off his boot. On another occasion a number of men were trying to lift a stick of timber. In all the crowd only one man could raise it abouttwo inches from the skids.

Buckwheat is only coming into use, yet in high poor lands it may be grown to great advan tage. Unless for forage it is best sown in drills, when half a bushel of seed is enough, and a little gypsum, nay a bushel, mixed with it. ' Buck wheat,' says Fessendon, ' is harvested by mowing, and it is best let lie on the ground for several days before it is housed. It is in no danger from the seeds falling ; and, unlike .most crops, does not suffer .much from a shower or two.' ? In many parts of America it is a common practice to put it into small stacks of half a dozen loads each, but he quite sure it is dry before you cart it at all. Simeon Young says, 'One bushel of buckwheat goes further than two bushels of oats, and mixed with four bushels of bran will, with a little hay, keep a horse a week. In feeding stock eight bushels of buckwheat meal is better than twelve of barley meal, and more fattening.' This is one of the plants that only require to be well imown to find a space of a few ac...

VETERINARY TREATMENT OF FISTULOUS WOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 November 1875

VETERINARY TREATMENT OF FISTDLOUS WOUNDS. In all cases of extensive injury there is consider able risk of the healing process stopping short I completion, and thus leaving -email ..spaces or canals, which take various directions according to the influence of such agencies as fluid pressure, movement of the limbs, and resistant power of different tissues. It was remarked in reference to the treatment of punctured woundB, tHaWlrt-premaftffis'^losing of the external opening is to be carefully pre vented, because the retention of the fluids which are exuded is likely to be followed by the forma tion of channels or fistulas, as the natural result of fluid pressure acting in the direction of the least resistance ; and in most cases it ap pears that the greatest amount of resistance is on the surface of the body. This fact is so well recognized that the surgeon is always anxious to cut down upon a deep-seated abscess, in order to give' exit to the matter and prevent the burrow of the fluid...

Original Correspondence. ROAD FROM BURROWA TO GUNNING. (To the Editor of the Burrowa News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 13 November 1875

[?] ROAD FROM BURROWA lti GUNNING. (To the Editor of the Burrowa News;) Sib, — In your issue of last Saturday appears some correspondence, extracted from the Yass Courier, from Mr. Fitzpatrick, the member for Yass, con cerning the above. From the tenour. of the correspondence it appears that the local officer of the Roads Department reports that the traffic on hub roaa ib not sumciem to warrant me vovern ment in granting sufficient funds to macadamise the road throughout With all due respect to that worthy officer's report, I deny 1hb statement that the traffic upon it is not sufficient to entitle it to be classed as a first clasB road. I am in a position to prove that there is considerably more traffic upon it than upon the road from Burrowa to Yass. During the month of November, 1874, upwards of 60 loads of wool passed through this town via Daltoh to Gunning, while not more than one-fourth of that number went by way of Yass. That the road is very little used at present by travelle...
