QUEENSLAND RED WATER. TO THB EDITOB Sir,— The letter of Mr, Nicholas Waters, Slock Inspector at P-tlmerston, Queensland, since 1882, to Mr. P. E. Goidon, Chief Inspec tor of S.ock, on tick red water or fever, con firms Professor John Gamgee's report to the U. S. Government on the American form of this disease. Mr. Waters,' in his communica tion, Btates : ' Ticlia are most numerous there (Palmerston distric ), while the disease is in its mildest form, which is tit the end of the year.' Again he adds, 'The cattle in the Palmerston district are tick-infested, but no deaths have ever occurred there from that cause from 1882 up to the preaent.' In these two statements we have a most positive proof, direct from nature herself, that (4s announced by ProfeBSor J.

WHITE ANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
WHITE AUTS. How exceedingly destructive white ants can be was shown by some operations which are now taking place at Parliament House. It was known that for years past white ants had established them selves in the main beam supporting the floor of the reading room which adjoins tbe Lower Chamber; and as it was thought that their operations had been on an extensive scale it was decided to remove the wooden bearer and substitute therefor an iron girder. The reading room is 24ffc. wide by 2Affc. in length, and the floor was supported by a beam which, composed of grey ironbark, was 12 in. by lOin. in thickness. The floor was taken up. On the bearer being closely ex amined, it was found that the. white ants had been so industrious that they had converted it into a mere shell, which did not average more thon l^iu. in thickness. The bearing strength of the beam had thus) been bo greatly reduced that it was said that if at any time a few of the mem bers had become larkish it was most in evi...
THE THOROUGH CULTIVATION OF IRRIGATED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
THE THOROUGH CULTIVATION OF IRRIGATED LAND. In addressing a meeting of the Kavenport Branch of the Agricultural Bureau the chair man (Mr. F. B. Bathbone) spoke on the ' Necessity and advantoges of thorough culti vation of irrigated land.' He said the object attained by thorough cultivation was twofold. First, it admitted the air to the root of plants ; and, second, prevented evaporation of moisture. Evaporation was caused by capillary attrac tions—that waa to eay, that In closely-packed soil there were multitudes ot hair-like tubes which sent the water to the ea^age, thereto be evaporated by the Bur. If the soil were) cultivated these tubes were broken, conBe* quently the water could hot rise. Although it was not in human power to increase the rainfall, we could by means Of frequent culti vation retain to a very large' extent the rain which fell. It waa now recognised as a fact that stirring the soil was preferable to mulch Ing. Some time ago a series of experiments were carried out...
