A Good Liqueur. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 17 April 1896
A Good Liqueur. Messrs. Tucker and Co., the New South Wales agents for the celebrated firm of W. A. Gilbey, Ltd. (the largest wine and spirit merchants in the world), inform us that sales of Gilbey's Dry Gin last month have surpassed their most sanguine expectations. They claim that besides being a medicinal spirit of very high merib it is a most refreshing and invigorating stimulant. Gilbey's dry gin and gingerbeer is said to be a favorite drink at the leading Sydney hotel bars. The sceptical are asked to test the truth of the above.

A large amount of money has been given for special prizes, and a number of valuable trophies will also be competed for. There will be a series of sheep dog trials, for which Mr. bamuel Jtiordern has contributed £24 in prizes. Every effort is being made to render the show worthy of the greatest sheep breeding country in the world. It precedes the annual ram sales, so there will be a large attendance of pas toralists.
Single Judges. TO THE EDITOR "S.S. AND S. JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 17 April 1896
Single Judges. TO THE EDITOR ' S.S. AND S. JOURNAL.' Sir, — I do not approve of single judges, for I think that 99 men out of every 100 have prejudices or fads about sheep in wool, and, therefore, three or two are always better than one. The same thine applies to horses, but not to such an extent. I \ know that objection has been made to 1 bachelors judging horses when ridden ' by the fair sexy as some peoplo say they look more at the rider than the horse, but I never heard of them being objected to for judging sheep. Yours, etc., 'An Old Un.' Kangaroos are dying in hundreds in the Central Western district of Queensland from the effects of some peculiar disease.

Caution to Teamsters. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Caution to Teamsters. As a caution to teamsters who frequently turn their horses and bul looks on private lands to graze at night, it may be mentioned that the owner of a bullock team was recently summoned for trespassing on the Berry-Jerry run. The case was called at the petty debts court on Tuesday, when the solicitor for the prosecution stated that, tiie matter had been settled out of court, but the owner of the station had made up his mind that in future all trespassers would be prosecuted with the utmost rigour of the law.
Disease in Cattle. NEED OF CARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Disease in Cattle. NEED OF CARE. The ' Queenslander ' mentions a case in which some pigs that were in a slaughtering yard near Rockhamp ton (Q.), where rickety cattle were boiled, have developed the disease. Whether from eating the flesh or offal of the sick animals, or from eating zamia nuts brought down from the ranges by the neighbouring creek, it is not prepared to say, but the fact remains clear that if we allow healthy cattle to pasture with unhealthy they will, in all probability, contract the disease. ' Prevention is better than cure ' is an old proverb, but none the less true because of its age.
Attachment of Animals. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Attachment of Animals. The ' Forbes Times ' gives the fol lowing interesting account of the attachment of animals It says, ' A singular instance showing the attach ment which some horses form towards animals was related to us the other dav bv a gentleman who was a visitor to some neighboring races. When a race was about starting our informant noticed that one of the horses was ex tremely fidgetty, displaying evident signs of uneasiness. All this, however, disappeared when his owner brought up a little bay pony and put him alongside the field of horses, as near to the fidgetty animal as possible. On inquiry the owner stated that some time aso the nonv mannered to -?et into the loose box generally occupied by the racehorse, and over since a strong attachment hail existed between the two animals.

A New Market for Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
A New Market for Cattle. Mr. Griffiths, the well-known pas toralist, reports that a new market has been opened for Queensland cattle by a South Australian firm who ex pects to take a regular supply. Mr. Griffiths sold 404 off his run on Georgina River last week. The cattle are to be driven to Hergott Springs, and then trucked to Port Augusta, and shipped to Albany. Ifc is understood that although the South Australian Government will collect the duty on. stock crossing the border, they will refund on cattle being exported.
Single Judges. TO THE EDITOR "S. S AND S. JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Single Judges. TO THK EDITOR ' S. S. AND H. JOURNAL.' Sir, — Your letter signed by ' Sutherlandshire ' is, perhaps, worthy of a few remarks. I tee he has a down upon single judges. I feel pretty sure he never was at a show were single judging was carried out in the sheep class. I quite believe evevy man has his price. I should s:1-}' ' Suther landshire's' price is very lov/. 'Suther- landshire' shows his ignorance by saying it was the old svslum (of three judges) that brought our lloekd to perfection. What rot ! Lei ?' Sulher- i landshire ' ask the Messrs. Me Arthur, I Gibsons, Learmonohs, Curry, Whites, j Coxes, McCaughey and dozens of other great breeders (of the merino sheep) how many judges it took to bring their flocks to the present high state of perfection, and one and all will t--ll him it was one man, no matter who he was, whether the owner or a paid sheep-classer. What sort of flocks would the above breeders have if they had had three judges (with, probably, three differen...
Muswellbrook Show. A SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Muswellbrook Show. A SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION. The 15th annual show of the Upper Hunter Pastoral and Agricultural Association was opened under very favorable circumstances on Wednesday last. The weather was delightful, which means a great deal in the suc cess of a show. The exhibits number about 150 more than Jast year, but there was a great falling off in live stock. The attendance on the opening day was not very large, but on Thurs day there were about 6000 people present. There was much indignation felt among the people because no con cessions had been allowed on the rail ways within a radius of 30 miles from Muswellbrook. The trotting and jumping contests attracted the most attention. Ihe trotting prize was won by Mr. S. Arnott's (Newcastle) bay mare 'Lady,' and the jumping contest was won by Mr. O. J. Spratt's ' Unknown.' There were numerous farm and dairy produce exhibits, which were of excellent quality. In fact all the exhibits, viz , wine, honey, fine arts, needlework, pot pla...
A Visit to the Southern Metropolis. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
A Visit to the Southern Metropolis. (By Our Special Reporter.) I wonder what the founders of the colonies would have thought had they been told that at no very distant date it would be possible, at the close of a day's work, to get on board a train in Sydney, and shortly after noon on the following day to find yourself landed in comfort in that great city of wide streets and princely buildings — Mel- bourne — a distance of close on 600 miles ! At the best they would have thought you a fit subject for a lunatic asylum. It gives one a sense of un common satisfaction to feel himself spinning along at the rate of 35 or 40 miles an hour, enjoying all the luxuries of a modern Pullman car. All honor to Watt and Stephenson for the im mense benefits they conferred upon mankind through their wonderful dis coveries. But I don't intend to preach a sermon, even if I were gifted that way. I was greatly struck with the appearance of the country shortly after passing through the outskirts of Sydney...
An Extraordinary Find. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
An Extraordinary Find. On Thursday afternoon last a heifer was killed at Mr. P. Carpenter's slaughter-house, which had on Tuesday been sold by Mr. A. C. Cox, of Medway, through Messrs. Crossing and Cox's yards. Out of curiosity Mr. Carpenter's son opened the ' bible' of the heifer, and in it was found a fish hook about an inch and a half long. The mystery is how the hook got into the animal's inside ; and more mar vellous is it how the hook got into the ' bible,' the leaves of which are so cloEely laid together. — ' Western Post,' ' I say, mother will you speak to Sammy 1 ' ' What's he doing now ? ' ' Well, every time I hit him on the head with daddy's walking stick he hollers.'
Hordern Brothers. CHEAP CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Hordern Brothers. CHEAP CLOTHES. There's a big shop in Pitt-street, Sydney, where they are booming Krcetrade. They build suits of clothes for 45s that they used to charge 55s for when tho duties were paid. They make 'em of serge, sergorette, tweeds, and suitings. Quality undoubted. Fancy golting a suit mado to measure from a large aeiecl-ion for 4nr. They make a dress-suit for four guinea? and upwards, it looks as if we were going to get our clothes cheap on account of the tariff, so if we can cover our anger with decent clothes we won't be so badly off. If we have 45a left after paying our taxes we can look re spectable ; if net, we can look the other thing. Country residents wishing to share in the reduced prices can obtain full par ticulars, patterns, self-measure forms, and tapo, by sending a postcard, addres-ed Hordern Brothers, Pitt-street (only), Sydney. To promote a feeling of interest in colonial industry a business suit is made to order, of N.S. W. tweeds, for the modest s...

Hard Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 21 April 1896
Hard Times. That these are not, and have not been, the only bimea when hard cash was scarce is proved by the follow ing, which is given verbatim as it appeared in the ' Australian,' a paper published in Sydney in 1829. The extract is from a June number and reads as follows : - ' It; is calculated that in Sydney two hundred and fifty head of beeves are consumed weekly. A drover who has been extensively engaged in this trade for some time says he purchase! a herd of bullocks last week, fib for the knife, at £2 10s per head, for which — and of no better description — he had last season actually paid £8 10s. Beet is now selling for two pence currency by the tide. The price of meat is no criterion of the present scantiness of hard cash.' Queer, isn't it ?
