I-IERBAGE POISONOUS TO SHEEP. News from Quirindi in tho MusiveUbrook Times of Saturday states that a mob of 6500 of Messrs. Nowland's sheep were (after travelling for many months in search of feed during the drought) on their downward journey, in a marketable and fat condition. -The lot had reached a spot near the crossin° of the new line extension, something- under a mile from Currabubula, having travelled ' without feed- from five miles beyond Tain worth, a total distance of about thirty miles. Un reaching a icnob, the sight -of the A. A. Company's mishap, tho flock at once set to work ravenously to demolish a species of weed that occupied the place of grass thereabouts. It-seems that the entire flock, in their hungor, had commene'ed to graze in - ^ body , and almost directly afterwards some of' the number ? ' furwelted' (for the infor mation of the uninitiated that is, turned on their backs) and died at once in great pain. - Upon seeing what was going on the drovers at once set t...
SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 30 April 1878
SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. Mn. Graham Coulter's report for weekending 18th : — During the past week the large arrivals of maize from the northern districts, have considerably diminished the demands existing at the date of my last report. The de mand, however, at reduced rates is fair for prime quality, but inferior lots are almost unsaleable. Numerous sales have taken place of this quality, and 2/- may be con sidered the ruling price. Several lots of medium quality have tliis week realised from 2/9 to 3/— one large lot being exported at 2/10. For prime qualities a good en quiry exists, but prices have receded to 3/4 for the best. Oats are in impi*oved demand, for a few lots during the week, from 4/3 to 4/6 has been obtained. Lucerne has been of very dull' sale ; and a great part of that now com ing to hand is of poor quality, buyers are not inclined to purelia.se extensively. The Exhibition has improved the demand for oaten hay, which has realised quotations at ' auction. . Potatoes are...

AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL PROVIDENT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 30 April 1878
AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL PROVIDENT SOCIETY. We have to acknowledge receipt from the secretary Mr. Alex. J. Ralston, of an advance copy of the Twenty-ninth Annual Report of this the largest and, we presume, most suc cessful assurance organisation in the colony. There are now so many persons interested in this society in the colony, that it has become a sort of imperium in imperio, and its progress is watched with almost national anx iety. Doubtless, there are many among our readers who hold policies in this gigantic concern, and would like to be informed as to its status. The final year in the sixth ^quin quennial period of the society's existence has now been entered upon, and after the close of the current year the usual dividend of profits will be made in which all policy holders will participate. The society being founded on the mutual and not proprietary principle, all profits are at the end of every five years divided, rateably among its mem bers ; and the present report will give som...

THE AUSTRALIAN GRASSES AND THEIR FATTENING QUALITIES. (To the Editor S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 30 April 1878
THE AUSTRALIAN' GRASSES AND THEIR FATTENING- QUALITIES. , (To the Editor S. M. Herald.) Sir, — Seeing in your issue of the 15th March a short review on the joint works of Baron Yon Mueller and Mrs. Bentham, relative to the grasses of Australia, and also some opinions of a Mr. Bacchus as to their fattening qualities, I should like, through your valuable paper, to make a few remarks on the subject. Having been nearly forty years in Australia, and during most of that time followed pasto ral and agricultural pursuits, it has en abled me to form sOme practical ideas on the nature of the sbil and grasses, their value and economy, in the welfare of Our adopted land. I have no pretentions to style myself a botanist, but merely an observer and collector of nature's gifts, which she has bestowed so bountifully on this great Southern land, if we can only make a right use of them, a great -deal, of which we have yet to learn. From the very first career of my Aus tralian life, I commenced to be ...
THE FARM. SCIENCE APPLIED TO FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 30 April 1878
THE FARM. SCIENCE' APPLIED TO FARMING. . ? (American Agriculturist.) ' In one of' the! experiments with corn, on tjbree;plots where pqtash was not supplied, the crop failed, while on three other plots, in which it was added in three different combinations, the yield was good, and was as large with the potash in the form of German potash salts alone, as where nitrogen and phosphoric acid were sup plied with it. In another experiment, .?nrhAro .ci-v+opn nl rvta wflrft- ?cctt+:Ti hs many different fertilizers, wherever phos phoric acid was omitted the crop failed, and wherever it was supplied the growth was good. The yield of corn rose and fell with the amount of phosphoric acid, anff paid no apparent regard to the other materials. The inference then is that in ?piei '^first case potash, and in the other f^dsph^ric acid, was the article of plant food most needed. .- M*. Sage's experiment tells a still dif ferent story, and a very instructive one. * The most striking feature is thatthe ...

St. Petersburg, April 26. Russian Ministerial journals state that the great Powers have agreed to direct exchange of views anent the present situation prior to any decision being ar rived at as to the European Congress. ??
