One relates to au "educated bull." Greytowu has one long street running through it, and scarcely any others, so that everything that goes on in the town may be seen from one end of it, up or down this street, to the other.5^ "The killing of cattle for beef," says General Macauley, "is done at a killing post in ~ the center of the town. The beef cattle are brought in from ranches one, two or three miles away. Sometimes vaqueros bring them in. A rope is tied to the animal's horns and another to his tail. A vaquero will ride in front holding one rope, and another vaquero behind hold ing the other. " This makes a sort of procession, and' as the animals are all wild and mostly ugly and inclined to make trouble there is no end of fun in watching this procession go down the street.

A TURKISH FIASCO [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 19 February 1915
A TURKISH FIASCO The Turks oannot, of course, remain long inactive, as they are faced'from the outset with the difficulty of obtaining supplies. Owing to the rigid censorship, it will bo difficult to obtain newB while the battle is in progress. The fighting1 already re ported resulted in the Turks being repulsed with 2-100 casualties. The French warships in the Canal ren dered valuable assistance. A former officer of the Egyptian Army, who visited the Turkish camps, states that 90,000 Turks and 20,000 Be douins are in the main camps, 22 miles east of the Salt Lakes, and 11 miles east of Suez, According to the Alexandria correspondent of the "Morning Post," it came as a con siderable surprise that 12,000 of the enemy should have reached the Canal, lacking commissariat and transport.
