We are prepared to listen to you, or anybody else. &nbsp; Mr. Macpherson complained of the loose metal that was lying on the road. &nbsp; he criticised the methods employed in mending holes in the. In Will- iamstown he noticed that when a hole had to be repaired it was dug out with pick, coated with tar and tarred screen- ings put in the hole. When rolled the whole thing was bound together, and was stronger than the rest of the roadway. To throw metal into a depression, as was done in Footscray, the then rolled was only waster of time and money. Cress street had been patched ...

POULTRY NOTES, By "Tight Feather." It is very important to pay special attention to Llhe condition of the breed ing stock from whichl the eggs for iln c ubittion are taken and its relation to their ,uccess or failure. The breed ing stock is tihe foundation of the lbusiness, the life of the undertaking 1anld th(e scource of all the eggs that are intended for incubation. Unless the breeding birds are sound an?d heallthy, and in the best possible condition for the reproduction of their kind, satisfactory results cannot be obtained. . Eggs from well fed parent stock will hatch strong, sturdy chicks eveln utlnder conditions considered as unfavorable. Eggs from birds out of condition; either from inbreeding, un sanitary surroundings, or improper food will never produce chicks worth the t;iouble it takes to hatch and rear them. What is worth doing is worth doing well. Hiow often it lhappens that through want of care and attention to the breeding stock, failure occurs in the hatching, such ...

WORLD'S WORST RAILWAY SERVICE To the Editor of "Sunshine Advocate." In nominating the Melbourne SSunshine service for the above competition (Class B, suburban only), I do not wish to take any unfair advantage of other subur banites who have not been un lucky enough to have travelled on this line, so feel bound to point. out to them, that from a study of its past performances and track gallops, that I am convinced that it can give all others at least a stone in the weights, and then win. The way I summarise the ques tion is to give, say 10 points as a maximum for each legitimate grievance, and our nominee's average is roughly as follows 1. Unpunctuality ... 10 points 2. Lack of Speed ... 10 ,, t3. Stoppages ... 10 ,, (more if possible) 4. Dirty Carriages ... 6.2 points 5. Overcrowding ... 5.1 ,, Making a total of 41.3 points out of 50 obtainable, so that in fairness to the Glen Iris, Coburg and other entrants I would sug gest that, provided local pride will allow them, they receive a...
