Sir,-Last night I was disappointed in not finding at my ledtuie on petro leum' the otlicial represeriitatiives of the town. No mayor; M.L.A., J.P., coun ciilor, solicitor, bankmianager et hod geplus omie! Why did they not attend to hear the fascinating story of petro leumni Why did they'not throw the aegis of their patronage over me? The rep!y, the retort courteous, is easy and obvious. Who are you that we should patronize your meetingl And pro bably they are right. "The Mayor," I was told, "is at a bush fire." Well, and truly a bush fire is a spectacle the came as a picture.show or a boxing cihibition.

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 23 February 1914

(ro ,hi Editor.) Sir.--TIn your local contemporary of WVednesday last it is stated that Mr. A. S Rodgers, M.j.R., addresesed a ,mileeting ,f the Peopl's/ Party and \Vomen's National Teague at Harrow and is reported thus :--"'o avoid the ci,'yLsbor voting power destroying the value of Libera's' votes in the country Mr. Rodgers considered an alteration in Seonto boundaries desirable." There is something so transparently honest shout this statement that I had to read it twice, and even. now the only ex planation I oan offer for such candour is that the confession was intended for select ears only. The plain truth phiinly told is characteristic'of Labor speakers, but it is not often that the Tory cpucuse cat is allowed to slip out so innocently. His objection to the State's HUousa be log elected by the whole State and not by sections is not because it is unde- 1 ,oocratic but because the "city Labor voting power destroys the. value of Liberals' votes in lhe country." For real candour Mr...

Rabbit Destruction. APPLES AND STRYCHNINE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 26 February 1914

Rabbit Destruction. APrPLss AND STavensle. Tihe following is taken from the book of recipes.and instruction on rabbit destruction prepared by Mr. Frank Allan, chief inspector. Mr. Staff, of Myamyn, is thie district inspector, from wlhom any further information nmy be obtained: Cut up the apples into baits about half-an-inch to five eighths square. Dust withll 1 oz. strychnine, powdered, to 10 or 12 lbs. of apples, say with a pepper castor. Any sugar in the pro portion of about 1lb. to 15 or 20 lbs. of apples, dusted on the bait, has been found a great additional attraction. This applies when the fruit is a little on .the sour side. If the apples are sweet no sugar is necessary. Lay in a furrow from 6 inches to 3 feet apart, according to the infested state of tlhe place. The advisability of "free feed ing" several times beforehand where above poison is to be used, cannot be too strongly recommended, in fact, it is practically essential to success. The baits in flrce feeding should be...

RECOLLECTIONS OF AN OLD COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 26 February 1914

RIECOLLECTIONS OF AN OLD - COLONIST. (BY N.o,) Those who never seen much of the Mallee country have but little idea of bow quickly and strongly tile Mallee scrub revives after what you would naiurally think, if you once saw it, a throughly devastating bush fire. I have seen misks of soanie of tile tallest and thickest malike swept completely outof existence; nothing to be seen but a few cha-red stumps, yet in a year or two it will be as thick, if not thicker than ever. Even the old we'l beaten tracks are obliterated asnd thickly covered with young trees. It must be remembered thab the Mallee country ran in belts surrounding large areas of go d grass land, and necessarily large blocks of mallee wore fenced in with the open country, making very large paddoaks. You can havR some idea of the size of some of these paddocks when I tell you that I have assisted in the mustering of over 22,000 slheep out of one paddock alone. The fencing in of the malleg sas not a very dilliou't job as it a...
