According to Trap's opinion I am afraid this practice, if adopted in Australia, would lead to a good crop of long speeches in some of our Parliaments ! The discovery by a Paris doctor that the X rays cause violent pal pitations of the heart is thoroughly endorsed by the lady who, at a recent scientific assembly, strayed into the line of fire and found herself revealed on a large screen in somewhat em brassing detail.

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 10 January 1902

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. Mr Jos. weir, inspector ot Block, has banded us the following letter, which ho received on Wednesday, from the Chief Inspector, for publication : — ' As the Rabbit Act does not come into force till May I hope your Board will not relax its efforts until then, when the Lands Department should be fully prepared to take over the work, and to carry it on with vigor. It .would be a great mistake to' let the pest increase. In view of the recent scorching weather we have been having and the terrible bush fires which may in some cases have been caused through the imperfect dissolving of the pkosplforns, it would perhaps be better if the poisoning were confined to arsenic for a month or two. The recipe for that poison appears on pages 11 and 12 of No. 1 pamphlet, and favorable reports have been received of the arsenic and pollard.'
