STRANGLES—A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

STRANGLES — A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE. Popular opinion always leans to the side of the contagion theory ; most diseases, according to the general belief, are more or less catching, and even a common cold takes a high place in tbe liBt of communicable maladies ; and it is somewhat remarkable to note that, aa the study bacteriology goes on, the scientist is gradually coming down to tbe -popular view. All diseases which are due to the existence in the animal body of a micro-organism must, of course, be capable of transmission from the diseased animal to the healthy one by the simple pro cess of transplanting the organism, and this is sufficient to constitute the disease a contagious affection in the view of the modern pathologist. Some years ago strangles was looked upon by veterinary surgeons and horsemen as a simple affection connected with the process of teeth ing. The strangles, writes Gibson, is a critical swelling, which, when it breaks a'tad impostu mates, discharges something which ...

A LAND BOARD AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

A LAND BOARD AT WORK. The report recently published of the Western Land Board, which has now com pleted a portion of Its task, Illustrates a serious, difficulty In carrying the new Land Act Into effect, and one to which we referred some time ago. The members of the board hare Inspected and valued a quantity of land In the neighborhood of Streaky Bay, most of which Is only fitted for large holdings of from 3,000 to 6,000 acres, on which grazing may be combined with a little agriculture. They hare also examined a large area of land, mostly grazing, in the Port Lincoln district and at Franklin Harbor. The most promising area for agricultural purposes which the board hasviBited appears to be the lands of Charra, near Denial Bay. Here It Is re commended that the blocks vary in extent from 1,290 to 18,000 acres, according to the quality of. the soil.

ENSILAGE. IO PRESS OR NOT TO PRESS—THAT 16 THE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

? w- ENSILAGE. IO FBE6S OB NOT IO PBESS— THAT IB THE QUESTION. Many letters have recently appeared in the agricultural papers, in which the writers describe their BueeeM in making grass, &&. into silagewithoutlhe aid -ot any -mechanical pressure. Some of the writers would almost imply that what they have done amounts to a ' discovery,' abont as much a discovery as if someone were to tell us that he had succeeded in making most excellent hay without the use of any expensive appliances, such as*mowing machine, noree-rake, tedder, or -elevator— the one can be done just as- well aa the other. Every one who has had experience, say for the last foor Years, since stack silage came to tbe front, ia perfectly aware that cropB may be preserved, andaconsiderable proportion -of their contents may be converted into consumable food without the aid of any mechanical pressure. If a person farming grass land, and not, aa a role, making much nay, finds that owing -to some special circ...

OUR CALIFORNIA^ LETTER. [From our own Correspondent,) San Francisco, March 9. 1883. Some Btfr has been made among our people by the reported discovery of exten sive goldfielda on Mexican territory, just across the southern boundary of San Diego county, the southernmost county of California. The excitement resembles, in msrjy respects, the stampede which characterised the memorable gold furor in 1849, and out of which California has grown to its present prominence and to its proud place in the sisterhood of states. The city of San Diego is said to be almost depopulated, and the gold seekers are fiocklrjg into the Santa Clara regiom-the place of the ' find' — from adjacent cities of the southern counties as well as from nearly every town in the stats. The re ports of the richness of the diggings, if I they are true, are very encouraging.

He began by explaining that the programme of the Government had been decided upon en tirely on their own responsibility, Inde pendently of the views of their naval experts. Commenting on the measures adopted by other nations, Lord George said that, judged by the results of recent years, the next five years would see a large Increase in the naval armaments of other countries. He maintained that we ought not to be satisfied until we obtained a navy equal to the navies of any two other European nations.

"PIGOTT AND I." MR. LABOUCHERE'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

'PIGOTT AND L' ME. LABOUCHEEE'S STOSY. In London Truth Mr. Labouchere tells - liis story at length. We extract the fol lowing passages : — This Is how Pigott was discovered to be the forger of the Times letters. Mr. Egan found such a similarity of phrases In the genuine letters and in the forged letters that he was certain that the latter were fabricated from the formec An emlsBary Boon after came over with the Egan draftsand withPigott'8lettere(one of which contained that blessed word ' faeoi tency'), to which the former were replies, and with the copies of Mr. ParneB's letters. Now It was absolutely impossible that the similarities, amounting In one case' to three consecutive lines, could be a mere chance. It was therefore a mathematical certainty that Pigott had forged the letters. On Mr. George Lewis being re tained, I handed them over to him, and he proceeded to get up Pigott'a ' record,' only a portion ot which came before the court, bnt a portion amply sufficient to show that...
