In thousands of homes Dr. 3Mbrse's Indian Root Pills are the sole family remedy for all general complaints. Those who have- never tried them will fin-i neighbours, friends and relatives who can testify to the wonderful corrective influence of these Pills.

Angling Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 February 1915
Augling Notes. Mr B. G. KELLY, writing from Michel ago, says:-It can indeed be said that there are too many tront over five pounds weight in our rivers. Your list accounts for only a small propor tion of the large fish that abound or have been caught. At the opening of the 1913.14 season, Mr W. P. Bollard and I caught 19 fish ranging from 4)4lb to 8zlb in the Qneanbeyan, at Jingerra, where the big trout are. We have had many similar catches there, but I did not always have the camera. It is a fact that these large fish destroy any fish smaller than themselves. In a locality like Jingerra, where there are a number of permanent trout streams, it was very wise to declare a closure in the smaller streams, as they are the hatching and living places of the fish that ultimately roach the larger rivers. I had five years fish ing there, and it was a rare thing to get a small fish in the Queaubeyan, and equally rare to get a large one in the Sherlock or Ballinafad Rivers which feed the Quenub...

A Rabbit Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 February 1915

'oeaesful as a breeding ground for rab bits. The land was found to be in miuch an unsatisfactory state, that "' he felt it necessary to take' proceedings in bhe matter." But having come to this decision the inspector discovered that his. difficulties were only begin. .ning. "The Department of Agricul -tore, it appears, could not be prose u onted because " it is not named in the Act," and the. inanager. was also im-. -mune because he did.not reside on the Farm. The business seems like a passage from a Gilbertian conmi opera. What the situation appears.to amount to is that a Government Farm may be maintained at the public expense to, among other things, breed rabbits, which may swarm from there over the .holdings of private land owners-and if those private land owners do not destroy them they. may be prosecuted and penalised . ...
