The Australian flag. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 13 May 1898

The Australian flag. Some interest has been aroused by the an nouncement that at Mr. Wise's meeting at Newcastle the other jight the federal flag was unfurled for the first time, and it was men tioned in the 'Herald' report of Mr. Wise's meeting that cheors were given for the Aus iraliau. flag. Subsequent reports show that this so-called federal flag has been designed by a resident or lNewcasiie, apparently in ignorance of the fact that there is already in existence an Australian fLig with an interesting historical record. It is variously known aa the New South Wales flag, and the Australian ensign, but as it has yet been officially recognised it cannot be flown by Australian vessels. It is, therefore, ai; present only used for 'dressing' vessels in conjunction with other flags. It is also a familar enough object on flagstaff? abimt the city. In consists of a blue cross on a white ground with the Union Jack in the left hand top corner, and the stars of the Southern Cross disposed in...

New Mode of Branding. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 13 May 1898

New Mode of Branding. A new mode of branding horses and cattle has boen invented by Mr. H. Gibson of Taranaki. The Howera Star gives the following deocription of '.ho process : — 'The merit of tho new method of marking hides lic-a in a secret preparation, into which the brand is dipped, and then applied to the hide of the beaBt, as in branding sheep. Alter tho preparation has boen on the skin a few hours, the hair comes off and (he patantee claims that it will never grow again.' At the Egerton Faimers' Union horse fair, some horses were branded to show how the brands were applied. No heating of 'he iron is required, and the compasition, it is said does not irritate the animal. Tanners and saddlers Btate that the marked portions are of equal qual ity to tho rest, of the hide. A great Advantage claimed for the new process is that stock can be branded almost as fast as they can run through a raoo. Patent rights have been taken out for tho new method of branding ia all coun tries where ...
