Shark-Hunting to Date. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 22 March 1899

Shark-Hunting to Date. Shark-hunting aboard ship is a form of sport described by a correspondent of the " Badminton.'' He writes:—     " An empty soda-water bottle is ob-   tained, into which is put a small charge of guncotton with detonator attached ; from this is led the electric wire, which in turn is connected up to the battery, after passing through the cork, which latter is hermetically sealed with indiarubber solution. Having encased   this truly ' deadly bottle' in a piece of salt pork or offal, it is ' paid out' astern at the end of a line along which is 'stopped up' the wire. 'Johnny Shark presently swimming leisurely by spots the tempting morsel, and at once turning upon his side, with a single stroke of his propeller-like tail, secures at one and the same time his dinner and his death ; for at the very instant his great jaws close upon the bait the modern 'fisherman touches the key of the battery, completing the circuit...

ELECTORAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 22 March 1899

-ELECTORAL REFORM. It is understood that Ministers propose to deal exhaustively with the Electoral Act during the regular, session of Parliament this year. This being so we hope that the . Legislature will be called together much earlier than usual, in order that there may be no risk of such an important question being dealt with in the rush which is gene rally experienced at the close of a session. For years past our legislators have tinkered with the Electoral Act, a climax being reached when the Hare Clark puzzle was adopted as an experi ment. Theoretically, that system en sures proportional representation ; prac tically, it is an enigma to the voters in the city constituencies to which it has been applied. Its ? extension to the whole Colony is not impossible, but it is surrounded by so many difficulties that it is pretty certain no proposal in that direction will secure the sanction of Parliament. Nor should the franchise be altered just now, unless perhaps in regard' to the oc...

The Queenstown Election. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 March 1899

The Qneenstown Electiftir. - .'I . (By a Correspondent.) ,' There seems to be considerable uncer tainty as to the roll on which this election is to be fought out. Some weeks ago 'the Attorney-General gave it as his opinion that the new roll would be used, but sinoe then he has apparently dropped aorosB reasons causing him to alter his formor decisions. While on the West Coast recently, Mr G. Crosby Gilmore. M.H.A.. B.A., was interviewed by the special cor respondent of the ' Lyell Standard 'in reference to thiB matter, and Mr Gilmore gave it as his opinion that even if the Act did not permit the use of the new roll, this difficulty might be overcome by mak ing the new roll the basis of the election and passing a short Removal of Doubts ~~ ? '? ? Act afterwards to validate the nroeeedinM. tf It is understood that the Hon Neil Lewis, M.H.A., another recent visitor to the West Coast, does not look with disfavor on this proposition, he being willing to do everything in his power to assi...

For the Farmers. EFFECT OF SALT ON MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 March 1899

For the farmers. v EFFECT OF SALT. ON JIILK. Salt given to cows has some ; effect orr the quality of the milk. . This is necessa- ' rily so as the salt aid3 very much in the digestion of the food, and it is the quantity of the food digested that regulates tho quantity nnd quality of tho milk. Salt is indispensable to the health of any animal that feeds on vegetable matter, and tho milk is affected greatly by tho health or opposite condition of a cow. When salt is given to excess it is injurious and causes an mten;o thirst, bnt this docs not neces sarily inako the milk' more watery than* usual. If tho cow drinks more water than is usual, thero is no reason to believe that this excess of water dilutes the milk. The milk is not made in any such -sway as would make this possible. It is produced by tho breaking down of the glandular tissue of the udder, and -this never con tains more than a normal quantity of water. The kidneys are charged with the removal of any excess of water from tho...

THE WEATHER IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 March 1899

THE ' WEATHER IN VICTORIA. | The season .in Victoria is maintaining its character for unexpected develop ments, the oppressive heat of last week having been succeeded by a cold snap .that is remindful (remarks the 'Argus') of June rather than March. ? Fairly good rains have fallen in many parts of the colouy, and as the time is | most opportune, a great deal of benefit I: 'will result. Bam during the month of t March does more good than at amidst any I other time of the year, and if the recent * precipitation is followed by another copi- j ous downfall, many of the elements which | go to constitute a good season will be pre- i sent. What farmers would particularly t like now would be for the subsoil to re- '\ ccive a thorough soaking, an experience 1 that has not occurred in the northern dis- | tricts for some years. Crops ore never I safo unless the subsoil is well saturated, | as even a short spell of hot weather during the ripening stage may cause enormous damage, if thero is no ...

LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 24 March 1899

LUCERNE. £*' Mr George i Randall, lecturor arid agent 1 for Queensland in England, sends the fol- i lowing report on Queensland lucerne hay j at the Islington Cattle Show :— ' At no , show I have yet attended has moire prac tical interest been shown in our lucerne hay than here.- I mean by the farmer ' and cultivator as distinguished from the - salesman and dealer. Though our sample ' was old, discolored, and tho aroma gone, { these practical men fully understood its value _as; loader. JSot many farmers in this country grow it nnd it would cer tainly appear that very fow at present have anything like a correct idea of its feeding qualities. This knowledge, how ever, is spreading, tho few who have tried it being loud in its praise; and I should say when its value does become known it will be in great demand, and command a high prico hero. The following may be j interesting in connection ;— A farmer in Essex told mo ho had 4.1 acres under i lucerne. Although tho last had been an - unu...
