The president's mission includ ed the addressing of meetings of dairy farmers, more particularly with regard to the threatened attitude of the Rural Workers' Union, and also the urging of the formation of bran ches of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association, as affording the better means of representing their side of the agricultural industry, than would tne creation of a purely sectional committee or a dairyman's union. "We feel," said the president, in the course of an interview with a "Land" representative, "that as the Rural Workers' Union embraces all agricultural pursuits, and the claims they will make will affect the whole of the agricultural industry, and so that those who contest ...

LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
LAMBS. Lambs, comprising all descriptions, were in ratlier heavy supply, and consisted of about equal proportions of crossoreds and merinos. The qua lity generally was good. Prime lambs were well in evidence, also a few pens of suckers, and as good trade sorts predominated, the offering might easily have been worse. The market was fluctuative, and values generally in buyers' favour. Prime lambs and hoggets made to 12/, extra (odd pens) to 15/1, good from 8/6.
FAT STOCK. SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
FAT STOCK. SHEEP. As no sales were held on Monday last it was generally anticipated that yesterday's supply would be heavy. The drawslip showed that move sheep were coining to hand than truck or ders inuicated. Upwards of 21G owners advised consignments repre senting a supply of 62,432 sheep, in cluding lambs. The list of sales was a very good illustration of the influx of small consignments, as out of 214 lots, there were only eight drafts of 1000 and over, including one of 2000. The balance ranged principal ly from 100 to 400 each. The bulk of advices came from the Northern and North-Western districts, and about 50 from the south. When sales com menced many lots had not arrived, consequently the consignments that missed ineir order of sale had either to be sold privately, or at the finish of sales. Owners who leave their loading until the last moment run a great risk of meeting a failing of the market towards the close of the day. All descriptions of mutton (includ ing a heavy spr...

CITY YARDS. FAT PIGS. About 700 fat pigs have been yarded during the week, porkers still continuing to represent the chief of the offerings, and prices for the heavier sorts were about 4/ lower. The market for both good baconers and backfatters was rather better, though middling and rough descrip tions were very dull. Quotations may be given as follows: - Backfatters.-Extra prime and heavy from GO/ to 65/; prime heavy to 40/; others from 25/ to 30/ up. Baconers.-Extra-prime and heavy 44/ to 4S/; prime heavy to 41/; lighter to 3S/; light to 35/; others from 28/ up.

CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
CATTLE. Another heavy supply was advis ed. Upwards of 2319 cattle were listed, and the actual yarding, com prising all descriptions, was 2281. The quality of the offering generally was good, but hardly equal to that of last Thursday. A couple of Queensland draft were included. Good, handy-weight bullocks and steers made up the bulk of the sup ply. There were a fair number of cows forward, including a draft of Dunnumbrals, which made to £7/16/, and avernged. £0/8/0. These were a nice lot. Buyers of medium and inferior quality beef were well en tered for, as the proportion was larger than last day, although no jungle beef was forward. Although it was a satisfactory offering, the market opened dull and easier for all descriptions, excepting odd sales of cows, which sold at about late rates. As sales progressed, the market became most (luctuative, one sale would be effected at last day's best rates, and the next at 5/ to 10/ lower. Gene rally, on the day, buyers had the best of it, as l...

A GOOD SAVE. Dr. Romeo, of Bundaberg, heard of a case of advanced tetanus in a horse' belonging to Mr. J. S. Cullinane. When the medico called, the experts were of opinion that the horse would die in an hour or so. He thought he would try to save the animal, and at once administered a strong dose of' chloroform and applied tincture of cantliarides the whole length of the spinal cord. Subsequently halt\a pint of castor oil and a few drops of croton oil were given, and when this had taken effect two drachms each of calomel and emetic tartar were administered. The animal recovered.
23.—Over-payment of Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
23.-Over-payment of Rates. (Case).-A.B.'s property was enter ed in the rate-book in 1907 as having an unimproved value of £400, and an improved value of £300. The vainer, in error, wrote £400, instead of £40. lie has in consequence been rated to the amount of £1 13s 4d each of three years, instead of 3s 4d, and lie has applied for a refund of the excess charged. (Q.)'The council recognises tlie justice of this ..application, but is afraid it can not legally do so since lie did not alppeal against the valua tion in any. of the three years. It will, therefore, be glad ii you will advise it on the matter. (A.)-(1) I do not think that a council can legally return A.B. any portion of the amount paid by him for rates, as his remedy was that mentioneu. and he should have ap pealed when the rate notice and valu ation was served on him. ' (2) I advise that the council do not repay any portion of the rate to him. (Continued.)

TO SCARE AWAY COCKATOOS. A southerner devised a novel me thod of coping with a horde of white cockatoos which were raiding a corn patch. He set eight common rabbit traps, carefully covered with cobs,, and as a result three birds got into trouble. The screeching of the en trapped members of the flock fright ened the others away, and they have shown no disposition to return.

This information was not available when the valuer made his triennial valua tion, and A.B. was rated for the block held under his annual lease ten ure.

MORTGAGING SHOWGROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911
MORTGAGING SHOWGROUNDS. It is generally held as a good thing that there should be plenty of diffi culties placed in the way of mortgag ing freehold properties. The Govern ment is evidently of this opinion, too,; for in a "Gazette-' notice issue last/ month, contained regulations regard ing the mortgaging of showgrounds.. Firstly, the application must be ap proved of by a meeting of members,; submitted to the trustees, and the resolution confirmed at a subsequent, meeting and advertised twice in the local newspapers. Fourteen days thereafter the trustees must apply to the Minister for consent; together with a statement of the amount'to be raised, interest charged and repay ment date; this to be accompanied by a letter signed by the shire or town clerk, setting forth the. improv ed and unimproved capital value. Ap plications must also set forth to what, purpose the loan is to be devoted,, where the interest is to come from,, and cover balance-sheets for two pre vious financial years. ...
