Open Column. THE RABBIT QUESTION. To the Editor of the Record. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 4 October 1878

Onen Colnmn. The Editors do not hold themselves respon sible for the opinions expressed ic this column. THE EABBIT QUESTION. To the Editor of the Tternrd. Sra — I think the present enormous increase of rabbits might, to some extent, be prevented. If the Government would proclaim that, for three months every year, at that t:me whea it IB known these animals come down from the hills to find water, it would be lawful to poison them, and consequently that they would be utflt for food, formers might destroy thousands by putting poison into tvater troughs near their wheat.

A Baronet in the Police Force. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 4 October 1878

L Baronet in the Police Force. Amongst the 'promotions' which have recently been announced as having taken place at ihe Phoenix depot of the Roval Irish Constabularv, we read, Acting Constable, Sir Tliomas JtSchlin, Bart. This means in plain words that Sir Thomas Echlin, Bart, is now en listed and serving as a cammon police man, and surely it is a strange, instance of the vicissitudes of families. The Echlins have been amongst the English-in-Ireland, and amongst the aristocratic English-in-Ireland, more than two and a half centuries, as Sir B. Burke reminds us. One of the family, or ihe founder of the family, went to Ireland, like numbers of his countrymen, to be a Protestant bishop at the time when James L was en riching Protestant bishoprics, colleges, and schools out of Catholic confiscations The bishop's grandson became a Baron )f the Exchequer, and the first baronet )fthe family, in 1821. From that ame downwards the scions of the house frequently intermarried into the high fami...

Nats and Nubbins. The Virginia bell-punch, is not a ther mometer — it is more like a barroom meter. It is said that slidinsr down hill was the direct cause of over six hundred deaths during the last winter. Moral — Always slide up hill. Statistics show that the number of idiots is increasing ; and yet some newspapers continue- to make war on quack doctors. What is a quack doctor for but to kill off the fools ! The manufacture of paper from wood has reached perfection in Canada. The superintendent of a mill up there says i tree is cut down and shoved into one and of the mill, and five minutes later tnere is a neighbor at the other end to borrow the paper. A young man sent 60 cents., to a firm in Michigan that advertised a receipt to prevent bad dreams. He received a dip of paper, on . which was written : ' Don't go to sleep.'
