JEalliiia. At Mr. 0. Webster's butchering es tablishment in Ballina (remarks the ' Beacon '), (he latest improved sau sage machine has been installed,- worked by a ti horse-power steam engine. The machine does, its work perfectly, the meat being chopped as tine as desired, wuue it is much cleaner and quicker than the old style of cutter. The machine is reckoned the best on the river. Mi:. Webster has also recently added a cooling chamber to the shop, which is now thoroughly up-to-date in every respect. The Ballina Rowing Club held its annual meeting 011 Wednesday. The treasurer's statement disclosed a credit balanco at the bank of £28 18s -Id, aud tho assets of the Club are reckoned at about £35, showing that the Club is in a very strong condition.

A Singular Occurrence. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903
-ft. &ii!gialar Occurrence. A' heifer belonging to Mr. W. J. Saville, of the Lansdowne, lias just gone through a rather strange ex perience. About six or eight months ?ago a stick 1GJ inches in length and 1;T in. in diameter penetrated through ! the ribs of the-animal into the paunch, and,' notwithstanding efforts made to extract it, it worked its way into the body, the wound closing up after it. Last week the pieco of wood made its -appearance 011 the other side of the heifer from which it entered, behind the foreleg, when it was successfully - removed. The htick had taken from six to; eight- mouths to work light through tl:e animal, which, we are in formed, is as well as ever. Mr. ; Saville has the stick .in his possession | as a curiosity, and the truth- of tho - incident, strange as it may appear, is 1 vouched for by several residents.

Proposed Dairy Conference. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903
Proposed Wairy Conference. It is more than probable- that -the Minister for Agriculture will shortly convene a conference of dairy farmers and exports to consider several matters ofHmportauce affecting the export .butter industry. Is is recognised that, ?the/ recent revelations made ro£rardin-r :,t]ie. ;;uko - of. preservatives in butter jmanufactured for export, deserve the serious consideration of dairy farmers, owners, of creameries, either ^private, public, or co-operative, aud exporters of .'butter.'.. The. cabled announcement that a London tradesman was re cently fined for selling Australian butler that contained a larger propor tion of boracic acid than is. alio wed by the regulations of the Board of Trade is considered by many as indicating a great source of danger to a great- and growing industry, unless indeed some thing is done to arrive at a general understanding as to the amount of preservative necessary to permit of butter being landed in London in a souiid condition. ...

Cheating the Gallows. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903
i:hcnti»g the '? John Gillkspie, who died, at the age of 8U, a few days since, in Carlisle workhouse, was, at Cumberland As sizes, in 1884', condemned to death for housebreaking ' at Wigton. But with practically tlia rope round his neck his resource never deserted him. fr Placing some suds and (soap in his mouth, he made such a convincing show of ill ness, suggested by the foam so pro duced, that he wa» reported to be in a. dying condition. The death sentence was commuted to one of imprisonment f/'.i'life, and then Gillespie, so runs the official record, was ' pardoned in a dying condition.' To prevent death taking place in gaol, Gillespie's re moval 'to the infirmary was ordered. Still. ifoaming at the. mouth, he was placed on a stretchcr, but as two warders carried liim out of that prison the 'dying man ' sprang to his -feet and. escaped. Ho was known as tlie king of lock pickers, and is said to i have released fellow prisoners as well j as himself. |

Government Mismanagement [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903
f-«v«riiineiit NisiiiitiiagcuiRiit Tun principal reason for the stagna tion insAustralia at the present t.itne is the interference by the Governments in undertakings which should be left, to the private individual or company. The initial mistake was made when it. was decided, that the Government should own the railways. There was an idea in the minds ot the people that the people should own the railways, so that high freights would never be charged. How has this panned out ? First ot all, the railways are pawned for their full value to the British in vestor, therefore never did beloug to the people; secondly, the freight and passenger rates compare most un favourably with the private lines of Canada, United States, and Argen tina, and are fully 20 years behind these countries 111 comfort. Again, Goveriinment railways have blocked the avenues for employment, have hin dered the settlement of the country, have closed the best avenhe -for immi gration, and have been as big1 a curse as t...

Drying Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903
Drying Potatoes. Potato improvement, both iu. tlio tuber and its cultivation, have so in creased the yield in Germany as 'to call for additional methods of pre paring potatoes for use. They are used iu some sections for cattle, feed, and they are used extensively in the manufacture ot alcohol. In order to successfully combine the two indus tries a prize of over JSJOOO is offered tor the best method of desiccation. The idea is, apparently, to extract, fhe alcohol and dry the remaining pulp, that it may be shipped inconvenient form fo the feeding stables throughout the country. Forty per cent, .of tlio German potato crop is now used for fodder. As they contain a large amount of water in addition to their inconvenient bulk, tho transportation charges prevent shipping to any great extent, lliieo and one-half tons shrink during the drying process to about cue ton, wh'ch would effect a great saving, it is said, without in juring tho-feeding value.

Lords Milner and Linlithgow. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903
Lui'ds Milnei* aud Linlithgow. It is cabled that Lord Linlithgow —or, as Ave know him, -.Lord Hope ;toun— is to succeed Lord- Milner in the Transvaal. The trials of our late Governor-General in Australia wore mainly confined to trying to make ends meet 011 a paltry £10,000 a year. In Africa he will find real trials — trials that will test his judgment and his firmness every hour of the day. Lord Milner, admittedly one of the most able men in the diplomatic service, has utterly worn himself out at it. It is suggested that he may come here as Governor-General, for a rest ; and Loid Linlithgow will have fo take up a weighty task when Lord Milner leaves Africa. It is too early to speculate as to what amount of suc cess Lord Linlithgow may be expected . - to attain. He is a young man, as Governor-Generals go, and litis never been severely tried. A colt at cricket sometimes astouishes the crowd by a dashing performance ; and perhaps the new Governor-General of Africa may delight the world...

Death of Sergeant-Major Sutton. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 6 February 1903
IDcatli of Serjfcaiit-nnjor Sutton. By wires received we learn with the deepest sorrow of the death of Sergeant Major J, D. Sutton, in Sydney. De ceased was a son of Mr. Malcolm Sutton, who until very recently resided in Casino. It will be romembered that Sergeaut-Major Sutton, then a trooper, belonged to the Casino Lancers, and was one of those who went to Aldershot for a course of training. Shortly after re turning home from England he volun teered for service in South Africa, and displayed great bravery in action while rescuing a comrade under a heavy tiro from the enemy. ' Later on ho was in valided home, and after a short respite again went to the front. For his bravery he was mentioned in Lord Kitchener's despatches, and received the rank of Sergeant-Major, and we believe was also recommended for the Victoria Cross. This, however, he had not been invested with. Deceased again fell seriously ill in South Africa, and, we understand, went through an operation, and subse quently r...

CORRESPONDENCE. 1 ' ? ___0— ? (To the Editor of the Itichmoml River Iixpress.) I Sir, — We have heard a good lot of blow from the Hon. E. W. O'Sullivan about tho 7s por day, and the wiping out of the unemployed. He has now crawled down by roducing tho expendi ture on country roads and bridges, and to do this has~determined to reduce the number of maintenance men. Now, Mr. Editor, it always has been tho practice of past Governments, when they ran aground, and were forced to reduce tho number of men on tho roads and rail ways, to lot the now hands go first, and those who had done long and honest work were found employment, married men with families being given first chance. I know one of the men recently knocked off who has been engaged on the roads as long as 18 years. This mau has always done good work, and is a marriod man with a big family to keep. There are other men, who have only boen on the work a short time, still they are found work,, some being single men. Matters of this k...
