The coming visit of the Hon. the Minister for Lands to Hay on Wednes day evening next Bhows an earnestness on the part of the Minister that some thing will be done towards solving that difficult matter, the Rabbit Question. And not a day sooner than is wanted. It certainly does not reflect any credit I on our legislators that such an impor tant question, one in which the chief interests of the colony, viz., the pro ducing interest, is bound up, should have been so long neglected. In 1890 the existing Rabbit Act came into force, and whatever were the intentions of the frainers of that Act, in administration it has completely broken down. Bad as our land laws have been the Rabbit Act lias out rivalled them, for causing litigation and bad feeling amongst neighboring settlers. Conferences were held, con vened by Mr Carruthers, while Minis ter for Lands, but beyond tbe prepara tion of a Bill to amend the Act, nothing has bee,n done. We therefore can congratulate the present Minister in a...

Open Column. THE WESTERN LANDS COM MISSION. [to the editob.] Sir, — The above body meet in Hay (to-morrow) Tuesday and following days.- Had no idea that the. question of transferring the runs from the cen tral division to the western would bo entertained by that body .at all. If such was intended more notice should have ? been given, so that interested parties at a distance might have been notified. Nothing leaked out about it. until to-day (Saturday) as far as I know, when notice was sent out which it will be impossible to deliver to many who would most likely give evidence before the Commission.

Campbell makes an appeal that should be taken up by everyone in the district, both town and country, but why not by -the Selectors' Association as a body J, Are they .afraid to -show their colors} I( believe Mr. Campbell is the secretary '' or some other official of the organisa tion. The Gunbar people have moved,' I hear, in the matter j but, a...

A Y.M.C.A. Tribute. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 22 April 1901
A Y.M.C.A. Tribute. The Rev. Dr Cuyler, of Btdoklin, has written the following estimate of Y.M.C.A in the 19th Century:— 'The Nineteenth Century excells- all its predecessors in its extraordinary scientific discoveries and its ingenious and useful inventions. Among what may be called its religious inventions I would assien the highest place to tho - Young Men's Christian Association, for Foreign Missionary Sdcietiies were started by William Carey in the closing years of the 18th century. If any man of our era was directly guided by the Holy Spirit to 'rise up and build,' it was our beloved friend Sir George Williams who organised the first Young Men's Christian Association in June 1814. He build ed better than he knew, for the Grand old man hais lived to see more than six thousand Associations, belting the whole elobe, with half a million mem bers, and ten times that number in directconnection with the organization. The Young Men's Christian Associa tion is not a society on paper ; ...

Sib. — Anyone travelling throughout New South Wales and Queensland during the past years cannot fail to see how the country has been ruined by bad legislation and idiotic demo cratic ideas. In the past one could see smiling and prosperous homesteads and find families on nearly every property ; now one rarely nnds fomilies I outside the back townships. Every 1 year this has got worse and worse, and the result is that starvation stares 1 many of the up-country towns in the 1 face. The general Public believe that the trouble is caused by droughts, rabbits, and low prices for produce. 1 All these are certain...

HE WANTED NO SUCH PATIENT. 'There now,' said the doctor, ''you go on taking this medicine till it is all used up. Then conic back and let me have a look at you.' This was in December, 1896. TJle woman put the package in her pocket and went home. When tho stuff had been consumed as directed, she called again. The specialist looked at her and made up his mind in a minute,' I will have nothing to do with you asa patient,' he said. ' 'It's no use. You are past help; you a,re worse t jan when you were hpre before; I can see the bones through your skin now. What I tell you is the truthy and you will be wise not to deceive yourself with hopes that can only break down under you. ' Rather hard, ugly talk ; but from a com mon-sense point of view the doctor was right. For four years Mrs Agness Biggs, of Norwood Terrace, Paddington, near Brisbane had suffered what she calls 'dreadful torment and pain' from dysentery. She tried everything advertised or recommend ed to cure it, without success. S...
Filling the Census Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 22 April 1901
Filling the Census Paper. Bt Owen Deed. It was Sunday evening, the tea things had been removed and the family was assembled in the cosy din ingroom. Mr Plimby sat at the head of the table with three or four great , virgin sheets of blotting paper spread before him. The ink-bottle had been ' newly replenished, and was brimful. Mr Plimby was armed with a new pen and a kindly but resolute expression. Upon the virgin blotter lay the clean pink census paper, and Mr Amos Plimby was about to do his duty as a citizen, a householder and father, not to mention a husband and the proprie tor of a horse, a cow, fourteen ducks, ten hens, a pet kangarooo, a bicycle and other live stock. Mr Plimby took up his pen reso lutely, struck an attitude, spread him self over his papers, and said ' Now!' with the air of a man who meant busi ness. The family had an awed ex pression, and were preternaturally quiet. They were a very large and very young family, and would take a lot of ' filling in.' Mrs Plimby ...

Auctioneers. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 25 April 1901
Anctioueers. Mr McKinney was fined at Hav some time ago for selling furniture on a Wednes day afternoon. Down in Victoria a trader hired a hull at Horsham and employed a local auctioneer to sell, whioh he did includ ing the 19th December — the local half holi day — he -was sued and the local justices dismissed tbe case. On the case being brought before the Sujpreme Court Mr Justice Hood delivered the following judg- j ment which we copy from the 'Argus' of tho 4th inst, he said: — 'The only question for determination was whether the defen dant was a shopkeeper keeping a shop within the meaning of tho Factories Act. The act defined a 'shop' to mean any building in which goods were exposed or offered for sale by retail. It had been urged 1 by the informant that tbe hall in this case was under the circumstances a 'shop,' but the defendant had urged that he was not the occupier, but that the auctioneer was. He thought that the defendant was the occupier of the building. But the fact tha...
