Disposal of Produce. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 January 1898
Disposal of Produce. 'J?hB ,Bub*committe, appointed by the Maoleay Farmers Union to consider the question of dome better methods of disposing of produce than exists at present was to meet at Neils Vic toria Hotel at 2 p.m. on Saturday 15th inst. We understand that various proposals will be dis cussed, amongst otthera the question forming a Co-operative Company, Should this latter be supported it is to be hoped that every safeguard ?will be adopted to ? carry the matter through. Locally the scheme of co-operation is not much in favor owing to the failure or poor success of similar ventures and the greatest care would have to be exercised in the selection of a com petent manager and secretary, whilst in order to avoid any chance of the company being crippled nr the Btarfc a larce amount of Bnorcv. nanh and whole hearted support will have to be thiown into; tho concern.

LETTERS PRISONERS RECEIVE. ?' Prisoners under remand awaiting trial receive an astonishinqly larga number of letters very often,' remarked a wacder to a re.presun tative of thia journal recently. ' Of course, a great many of these are irom friends, and are mere expressions of sympathy : but very often in the caao of notorious men, some strunee docuu)ent« come to hand. Threats, warnings, hopes of early release, or exhortations to cheer ful resignation, all such things find cxprension in letters which such a prisoner receives.

.ORIGIN 01? A PHBASB. Many years ago Ibo wild deer that roamed through the forests of England used to dig holes in the earth with their forefeet.

These holes wera culled ' scrapes,' and travellers at dusk or night, or those, who were careless about their rooting, often tumbled into them. They were laughed at for thsir beedlessm-ss when they came 'home covered with mud, aud as this frequently occurred after they had been imbibing a bit they were said to have 'gotten into a scrape.' Somo Cambridge students took up this expression, aud thus it came to be applied to people who had gotten into difficul ties of various sorts.
