OUR LOCAL BUTTER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
OUR LOCAL BUTTER SUPPLY. -:0: TO TIIE EDITOR. Sin,-We ladies do not often inflict ourselves and our grievances upon the newspaper-reading public, but there are times when it may not be unbecoming to drop our local editor a line or two for his correspondence columnn. Living among a butter-producing conmmunity, and one that makes a special boast of its success ill this dircction, it strikes one as being most extraordiniry that there should be. such difficulty in obtaining a few pounds of butter when one is de sirous of obtainilng it, and 'has the money to pay for it. I have been for three weeks without butter, being unable to purchase any from the storekeeper I deal with, he having done his best to procure it, but being obliged, so lie tells me, to send to Melbourne in order to get back to Taturn butter, which lias travelled 220 miles front here to town and return. I have also heard of people living in our seaport towns having to send to IMelbourne for fish, which had left the fisherm...

While ninnty-eight per cenrt. would be organio, two per cent. would be ash. The fibre varies in diameter, the delicate Saxon Merino being: the thirteenth-thousand of an inch, and the Southdown the eleventhhousandth. Sound. neos of fibre indicates health. Lustrous wool is long and ironig, sometimes twenty inches in length. Old oheep usually lose the power of producing the best wool.

EPILOGUE. It is a well-known faot that a community of distress frequently makes the best friends out of even the deadliest foes. Where Diamonds are Polished. One of the great industries of Amsterdam is the cutting and polishing of diamonds; and nearly all the finest diamonds in the world are brought here to be cut into shape. We will make a visit to one of the principal dilo mond etablihmenents and when we get there I think we shall be surprised to find a great factory, four or five stories high, a steam en gine in the basement and fly wheels and leathern bands and all sorts of whirring machinery in the difl. rent stories. On the very top floor the diamonds are finished and polished and here we see skillful workmen sitting before rapidly revolving disks of steel, against which the diamonds are pressed and polibhed. It requires great skill, tims and patience before one of these valuable gemr is get into that shape in whilh it will best shine, sparlkle and show its purity. Nearly half...

THE KYA1RAM UNION( PIUBLIsI5eD ?VEnY 1FIrDAY iMooNINo. -0 FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1894. IT is with regret that we have now so frequently to note in our columns cases of cruelty to animlls. Scarcely a court day passes without one or more instances of this offence cominig under notice. Not that we have the slightest corn punction on account of the allllu t of fines imposed, we could with great pleasure see them trebled; our sympathy is with the unfortunate victims of these self-styled lords of creation. But it is sympathy mingled with ia certain feeling of sorrow that there should be those in our milidst who seem utterly careless of preserving that essentially hInana charac teristic of consideration for other thnlu themselves, and who appear ready at any moment to give vent to that ferocity of disposition which characterises the beast, and the wild beast at that. Of course we recognise tile fact th:it .iin some cases people err ralther front force of circlmstances thian from choice. Still t...
