An Honest SVian. Out in the youn.fi' countries of the world they have a pu.^uul way of go ing to biisiiicetf. Sandy Macfarlane and Patrick Hoo lan were travelling together in one of these "oulpcsts of Empire," and at one stage of their wild career took a passage in an ohl-fashioned coach. "Just. like the good old times," said .Sandy, settling dov/n in his cor ner for the night. Patrick said nothing. He was al ready asleep. The roach rumbled on peacefully, wlier. suddenly the dreamers were awakened by cries from the driver. Looking out of the window, Sandy's face came in direct contact with the unsympathetic eye of a highwayman and the muzzle of a revolver. Sandy sat down again suddenly. "Hands up!" exclaimed the iuisky robber. But his order was quite unneces sary, as all tiie travellers had their hands well above their heads, with the exception of Sandy, who was al ready unloading his pockets.

The Development of Island Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 24 June 1915

The Development of Jsland Trade.. As early as 17'.ll the Australian whale industry was looked upon as one likely to be a valuable asset to the country. Governor Phillip was impressed by the number of whales encountered on his outward passage ar.d ho thought that the establish ment of a, flourishing whale industry in the adjoining ser.s would material ly heip in tiie task of making Port Jackson self-supporting. In March 1792, however, ho seems to have lost heart in the success of his darling scheme for he writes "the fur trade on the north-west coast of America and the trade among the islands is too great ail object to those who are employed in the fishery ever to ad mit of their giving this coast a fair trial." His fears, however, were /mndless, for the whalers soon ~'jund their way into Pacific island harbours, and this with the migra tion of a large proportion of the south sea colony of missionaries helped to open up the mainland. The next step in intertrade with the mainland was ...

Football. Katamatite v. Yabba North. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 24 June 1915

Football. Ivatamatite v. Yabba North. Last Satv.rday the Katamatite team braved "the elements," and put in an appearance at Yabba North, to play the local;;. The ground was in an awful sloppy state, which mado "football" out of the question. Nevertheless, both teams and the umpire agreed to go on with the game, and the match very soon resembled that good old chase, "catching the greasy pig"-the ball represent ing the pig-with all hands in hot pursuit. The spectators greatly enjoyed the fun, and roared with delight at tho players slipping, sliding, and wallowing in the mud. It was a sirenous battle, Katamatite ultimately proving victorious by -1 points. The final scores were-Katamatite, 3 goals 3 bohinds ; Yabba North, 2 goals 5 bohinds. The Dookio boys team went to Cosgrove last Saturday, but tho home team proved too good, the scores being 2 goals 3 bohinds to 2 goals 1 behind.

Australia for Air Scout Tha study of the use of the aero plane in war is one that -Australia -is peculiarly iittad for and should ap peal with groat force to the Com monwealth Defence Department.

The country is now look ing green ; crops that wero sown oar1 jr have made splendid growth, and as ctiaiY is practically beyond everyhfii-.;. s, reach, the crops are a real " (*od send." The grass, however, is very backward, and many farmers have been com pelled to turn their stock on to the crops.

That silage conies nearer being- s a porfect substitute for tho snccn lent food of pasture than any food that can be had in winter. Thirty pounds a day is enough silage for an average-sized Jersey cow. Larger eattlo will eat more. A cubic fool of silage from the middle of a medium sized silo will average about 451b. weight. For 1S2 days, or half a year, an everage Jersey cow will require about six tons of silage, allowing for unavoidable waste. The circular silo made of good hardwood staves is cheapest and best. Fifteen feet is a good diameter, and twenty feet a good depth. Such a silo will hold about two hundred tons of silage, cut in ha...
