THE SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1868. THE DISEASES IN WHEAT COM MISSION. The Commission appointed to enquire into the diseases affecting our cereal crops are mostdesirousof bringing uptheirreport without further delay. They have conr eluded the examination of' ?witnesses, and are only; delayed by the neglect of persons in the country to send in their replies to the schedules of questions some weeks ago sent out. Many hundreds of answers have been returned, but numbers continue to reach town daily. The Com missioners, whilst on the one hand un willing to shut out evidence, are — on the other hand, very anxious to draw up their report, both for the information of the public, and to avoid the expense inseparable from delay. It is therefore requested that those persons who have not yet sent in their papers, will do so immediately, as the Commis sioners will feel it their duty in the course of another week to send in their report, whether the whole of the schedules have been returned or Jiot.

CITY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

CITY GOSSIP. By a Man about Town. I hear that all sorts of cock-and-bull stories about the Fenians are afloat in this colony. Some people persist . in believing that there must be a secret organization somewhere if the police could only find it out, and that some dav this secret organization will startle us by its public development, in ways which we could not have expected. I hear that those who are best informed on the subject, utterly deny the reports. The police know nothing of them, and are properly sceptical as to any organization existing in South Australia. It is said that nobody here wants to be mixed up with Fenian disputes at home, and. that the Irish amongst us are as true and loyal to the British throne as ^any other nationality. I believe that ; for some of our most industrious and orderly , colonists are those from the Green Isle, who have a stake in the colony, and have given hostages to For tune. T?he general feeling outside is that as little as possible should be s...

JWe now give the answers that have reached us : — BT W. POYNTER.

BY QUERIST (Kooringa). [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

by Q0EBIST (Kooringa). A said to B if you give me 10, I shall have as many as you. B said to A if you give me cne I shall have ten times as many as you. What number did each have ? With reference to this, Thos. Halstead points out that it is ambiguous, since the words 'as many as you ' might mean either the same number, or a greater number. It is evident, howevev, that Querist meant the same number. Querist's own answer is as follows : — Suppose A to have 1, then B gives him 10, and they both have the same quantity, that is 11 each ; then A returning the 10 to B, accom panied with his own 1, B has 22 and A has nothing. This 22 is 10 times as many as A possesses ; but as A possesses nothing, instead of saying 10's in 22, say 9's in 22, which is con tained 2f. This is the number A has after giving 1 to B ; therefore A's number is 3| and B's 23f. By this method the puzzle can be done mentally. S. P. C. S. sends the following:— Let* = number A had. If A had 10 given to him, he would hav...

BY GULIELMCS. A gentleman a horse did buy, which was both lame and poor, One guinea was the price he paid, and full five shillings more. He fed him well on corn and hay, till he was strong and sound ; When meeting with a squire one day, he sold him for five pounds, By which he lost half the prime cost, a quarter keeping too. What did the keeping cost him then ? That's what you have to do. One of our correspondents does'nt like ' doggrel,' but people should not be too severe upon a light column, meant to combine amuse ment with instruction. For the benefit of our cynical critic we shall give the first answer in the so-called 'doggreL' It is by Querist, Kooringa. The gentleman who bought the horse, Which was so lame and poor, Gave five pounds sixteen for his food ; It cost Mm nothing more. .
