Politics. FEDERAL FEELING. COUNTRY PARTY STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 15 April 1924
Politics . FEDERAL FEELING. COUNTRY PARTY STATE MENT. Contending that the recent victories of the State Labor parties does not re flect on the popularity of the Country Party, the Parliamentary Committee of the Federal Country Party has issued tha following statement: — The advent of the Labor Party to power in S.A. and W.A. has caused tho metropolitan newspapers to call a halt in the campaign tney had launched to create an imaginary political crisis in the Federal sphere. These results, coupled with the Labor Government in Queensland and Tas mania, cannot be taken as any indica tion of public feeling in federal poli tics. On tho one hand, the work of the Bruce-Page Government, and the defi nite results it has achieved, and, on the other the unpopular attitude of the Federal Labor- Party towards all de fence and Empire problems, place tho Federal elector in a very different posi tion. ' The further effect of Labor's rule in some of the States mentioned will pro bably have been fully...
NEW ZEALAND MEAT COUNCIL. CONTROL OF FROZEN LAMB EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 15 April 1924
NEW ZEALAND ME^T, 1 COUNCIL. [?] y. In his reply to tjve d^Mitfttion, which waited 011 him from tl^,^&ttle industry, 'Mr. Bruce outlined brierfly what the New Zealand Meat Board was doing in New Zealand. They controlled, lie said, the export of frozen lamb only, but each month sent out to every exporter of this com modity, asking how many carcases they intended to export in the coming month and where they intended sending them. On finding the total it was proposed to export, they considered tlie vari ous markets and tried to estimate the quantity each could absorb without depressing the market unduly. On this information being received they compared the powers of absorption of tlie markets with the quantity it was desired to export. Should this be in excess of the absorption powers the ex porters were informed that they would be allowed to expert a certain percent age only. As all frozen lamb was exported through the Board, it was able to ne gotiate for freights, etc., and t...
NOT ALL MOONSHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
NOT ALL MOONSHINE. When Palbi won tho Hurdle Race at Randwick in March owner J. T. McKenzie was sur prised. He did not regard him as j bemg sufficiently forward to wm just then. But when Ted Moon was thrown into the saddle he was very definite a3 to his mount's winning chances. Maybe Mr. McKenzie is a pes simist ; but he did not make a substantial investment on his gelding. Even after Palbi won so easily his owner would not agree that ho was thoroughly wound up. To-day it is different — Mac is satisfied that Palbi' s preparation is complete and thorough. But Ted Moon is passing him over in order to handle Bendoc. And so far a suitable rider cannot be found for Palbi. Truly, racing thoroughbreds is a worrysome hobby.
WHAT ARE THEY BACKING? [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
WHAT AM THEY BACKING? Claro's persistent track whirls aro inclined to make the betting public forgot that thero is anything else in the race. Despite the shrieking price at which he stands he is tho only horse on which the volume- of money comes uninterruptedly. The fact that Claro a connections are huge bettors is mainly respon sible for the cramped figure, but his sensational trials- keep the flow coming from small bettors. Although Blackadder went back to the middle division in the lists after his inglorious ? Moorefield display his consistent track brilliancy has caused him to firm again— and in all probabil ity lie will start third favorite. There is no doubt but that he was short of a race last Saturday, so tho outing, and his two speedy efforts on Tuesday and Thursday have sharpened him up. The huge betting of Our Prince's owner is certainly responsible for his holdine Cud favoritism. Thero seems no real reason why he should turn the tables on Mirthmaker, and his second to th...

THE SPORT OF KINGS—AND OTHERS Continued from page 13. DAVID'S DECLINE TURF CAREER PROBABLY ENDING [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
THE SPORT OF ICIMGS-'- AND OTHERS Continued from paga .is* DAVID'S DECLINE ? v. rURF career probably ending David's failure at Moorefield last Saturday indicates that another of our long distance champions is ready for retirement. In perfect condition the veteran's nuuuiu seems xo oo loss ot Heart rath er than loss of pace. Like many aged stallions he has turned cunning. David's recent unsuccessful trip to Victoria was probnbly responsible for tho sickening lie has had of defeat. A long-striding galloper who was taught to race right-about, lie would bo severely hampered when asked to gallop left-handed. It is similar to asking a skilled and speedy artisan to do the same work left-handed, as he is used to doing in the usual way. In negotiating turns at the gallop all horses must reach further with the outside legs than they do with the pair nearer the rails, and so they get used to this and the muscles are developed for the particular way of going. The longer the stride tbe more acut...
GOSSIP The End of the World. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
[?] : Tke End of ihe World. -g-T happened in Greco, a few thousand years ago, that some man had prophesied tho . coming end of tho world. Terror got \ hold- upon the people, for they were, as sjervouB about tho - end as we. are, and'iaaay of tbom rushed, a wise old philosopher to ask his opinion concerning tho cominij cataa tropne. The old man tras quite certain that it wasn't going to happen, and thoy went away comforted. After the dotij of the disaster,- como of his frionda asked him how ho knew ifcwas&'t going to happen, and thei old man Baid: 'If it had happened, nofiody would have como to find fault with my judgment.' There's always a lot of alarmists who i anticipate tho world's end with a sort OP grim pleasure^ and iho Seventh Day Adventfeta anticipate it with delight, for they are going to be saved, jvhile all the rest of us . go to the place we hardly ever mention.

THE RAIN. DEAR PLANETS [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
THE RAIN. DEAR PLANETS,— Rain, rain, rain, almost every day since Christmas. Rain is pleasant after being without it for so long, but one gets sick of it when it comes too often. The old saying is, 'It never rains but it pours,' and I think it ia quite true. Last night we had a very heavy storm ; this brought the creek down, and when we went out to take the sheep over to their paddock this morn ing we had a great job trying to get them across. They are such stubborn animals. We had to catch some of the lambs and wade over with them to make the mothers follow. We had great fun, but we got them all over in the long run. As I am only a new Leaguer and havo no corries, I hope some Leaguer about twelve or fourteen will see this and take pity on me and write. I will gladly answer tiieir letters. Wishing the League evfery success, Yours, etc., 'TANGO.'
SUNSET AND COUNTRY. DEAR "PLANETS,"— [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
SUNSET AND COUNTRY. DEAR 'PLANETS,'— I have been a long time making up my mind to write to the League, but I am determined to do it this evening. As I sit -?n the verandah here watch ing the sunset, with its golden, fleecy clouds, and the sky painted in soft pink and a delicate mauve, and a few dead trees standing around, it makes me think of the country, while an or chestra of crickets seem to make it even more real. I I close my eyes and can see a sun set more beautiful than the one I de scribed. I see a cloud of galahs fly over and settle in a tall, gum tree. Dead as they are, they all have their beauty. In the dusk I see a weary traveller turn the corner and pass along tho road. He sighs as he passes the birds, and| they start up and 'fly to another tree. I turn my head in the distance where the tinkle of the cow-bells are heard, and in a few minutes a dusky form can be seen making its way to the tank. The dusk has faded now — 'And the darkness falls, From tho wings of night' Wi...

CORRIES. Dear 'Planets,' — I rauet thaak you and the League for the beautiful corrie. I have found in 'Jazz,' who has now changed her nom-de-plume. She writes lovely, long newsy letters. I always look forward to the mail for her letters. I am very fond of corries., although I have only . got three through., the League, and seven al together, and I think, 'Kiss-A-Miss' has 50. I would love a corrie. in New Zealand and in Queensland. Do you think I oouldP If this letter catches tho eye of a Queenslander, about 15 years of age, I would be very pleased to receive a letter from 'her, that is, if' she cares to correspond with me. I'm so sleepy, I'll finish this to morrow. ? Bye-bye. Wellt here I am real fresh after a good night's sleep. It is a lovely morn ing, not a cloud to be seen and there is a lovely breeze blowing. I'm writing this away out in the bush — it is my favourite place, about half-a-mile away from home, down a croek with beau tiful, stately pines reaching up, as if to try ...

Boiled Down [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
Boiled Down j Jack says Tar, to Sydney. Admiral Field says that, 'if Aus tralia keeps on rubbing Imperial Pre ference in, it will come.' Still, we don't want to rub John Bull up the wrong way. If we rub long enough, the stamp will be Imperial .Preference. Mind you, though, Australia will not be a rubber stamp in the scheme of Empire. The Anglican Bishop of Carpentaria has a diocese of more than 600,000 square miles. Up there, the British must be a sight for tired eyes. In Carpentaria, they don't run many souls to the acre, but they are rare souls. To be equal to the Carpentaria job, the Bishop will have to get his 'T32B gs.' A farmer in the Kingeroi district (Q.) has run a £6000 peanut crop. He won't hare to sit in 'the gods' at the theatre when ho comes to town. That man's peanut farm was only 120 acres. Now if the big cattle runs oat there could be turned into peanut farms. Queensland would be home on the bit. Perhaps the Peanut Kings of Austra lia's future will make Sir Sydney Ki...

Boiled Down [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
Roiled Down I The International Export Committee on German reparations reports that progress can come only if there is good faith. Old-fashioned, but do you k bow anything hotter? ' Notwithstanding our wealth of inven tions, Good Faith remains a sino qua IlOIl. Without Good Faith there cannot hs Good Works. Good Faith works the oracle. Lose Good Faith, and the Way is lost. If the world's Good Faith were de stroyed, it would be Us for the Jungle. Some of the newspapers said Sir George Fuller was about to resign. Sir George denies it. Perhaps, haknow^.

THE "OUR PRINCE" BOOM. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
THE 'OUR PRINCE' BOQlM. The rusliing of Our Prince to the head of tho quotations appears to be one of those incidents due greatly to propaganda led by a heavy betting owner. Frank Bullock bought Our Prince in England for Sol Green. He was a inaiaen, tho fact that he had start ed in tho Derby being his big card. Tho Sandown Handicap ho won a twelvemonth back, was his initial vic tory. Ho took tho Williamstown November Handicap and followed it up with the Final Handicap at the V.R.C. Spring Meeting, llis second to Mirth maker at llosehill a fortnight back ia what gave Sol. Green Sydney Cup am bitions.
ASSESSING SUCCESS. STRONG VISITING TEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
ASSESSING SUCCESS. STRONG VISITINC TEAM. Victorian horses won 11 of the 25 events at the last A.J.C. Autumn Meeting, and this year look like doing bet ter. If favoritism and 'race- course certainties' are at all indicative, visiting horses look like taking the cream of the £50,000 odd to be distributed as stakes and sweepstakes. Heroic seems certain to win the big end of the juvenile endowments, while oven if ho fails Victoria's second string in Arendal, is apparently a class above local babies. Then the Southerners havo Cup favorito Our Prince, while South -Australia supplios the second fancy in Stand By. Drongo looks likely to take tho Legor, and maybe the Cup. The weight-for-ago events aro more open than usual, but if Rapine eomos up expec tations lie should enrn Now Zealand's stake-quota.
