STOCK-RAISING. At the last meeting of tb« Fife Farine Club,, Mr. David Tod, Gospetry, read paper on the " Hearing of Stock." ï said :-" Thia subject, considered in i widest aspect, would naturally include tl rearing of all kinds of farm stock, but tb would embrace too wide a field for a sing paper. The rearing of sheep and hors we shall therefore dismiss with a Bing remark, and proceed to the rearing of catt! which we consider the gist or pith of tl subject. To give our subject eomethu lrke fair, we shall not say exhaustive, trea ment, we shall consider (1) the methods rearing ; (2) thc drawbacks to rearing ; at (3) the advantages of rearing.

MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG TOBKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG TOBKEYS. Let them alone for tue first twenty-four hours after they are hatched. At the ex expiration of that time, they will be quite strong and decidedly. Hungry remove them to a olear, airy, roomy coop, and give them j their first meal-hard boiled eggs chopped, stale bread crumbs just moistened with milk or water, cheese curd, or a mixture of ali these. For the first two weeks feed en- tirely with the eggs, bread, curds, cooked lice, atd cooked oatmeal, Indian corn-meal ; and from that on they can be given any cooked food that would be suitable for chickens at the same age. Season all food slightly with salt and pepper, and twice a week add a level teaspoonful of bone-meal to a pint of feed. Never feed any sour or sloppy food of any kind-except Bour milk and never feed any uncooked food of any kind until after they have thrown out the red on their heads. Feed often, five or six times oday, until they are two months old : then, if tnsectsara numerous, you may gr...

The University of Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

The University of Melbourne. Melbourne University is a compound institution. There ÍB the University proper, at which all students must pass . their examinations and may at- tend the lectures provided for them, and there are the affiliated colleges, belonging to the various denominations. The latter, especially the Anglican Trinity, College, are held tobe aristocratic bodies, and are accordingly well hated by the representatives of the democracy. The University, moreover is said to be not a little jealous of tb« prosperity a growing influence of her lusty children. Tet from the democrats has come a movement which, if carriedout, may end in giving the colleges an overwhelming position. They desire the schools of mineB at Sandhurst and Ballarat should be affiliated, and farther that the fees, payable to the University should in the!" case be remitted. If it is done for these the fees mast also be remitted for the colleges. Already these latter have first xate staffs of lecturers, and ...

The Western Mail SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1886. THOUGH the accounts of the new wheat crop have not been all received from the farming districtBjÉuough is known to form a tolerably fair estimate of the result. So far as can be gather- ed the average this year will be up to that of last season. About 10 bus hels to the acre is looked for at New- castle, but something better than this may be expected at Northam and ' York. The net quantity available cannot be yet accurately determined. Unfortunately the price cannot be said to have improved. At present it ' may be taken to rule at threepence à bushel lower than it did last year» How tar the quantity produced may be capable of supplying our popula- tion without the need of foreign im- portation is uncertain. The only figures at our disposal are those re- lating to lt*84. In that year we im- ported 1661 bushels of wheat, and 1733 tons of flour, the latter equal to about 86650 bushels of corni Now a. peculiar fact about our wheat statis tics is that accordin...

THE CLIMATE OF HERGOTT SPRINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

THE CLIMATE OF HERGOTT SPRINGS. ? » - The subjoined extract from a report to the S. A. Government by the President of the Central Board pf Health, on the condition of the camps at the railway works gives some interesting details of the climate of Hergott Springs, a place in one of the most central parts of the continent of Australia. Our readers will gather from it that there is at any rate some reason for the complaints of the men sent up to the relief works lately es- tablished there by the S. A. Government. From observation of the men and from per- sonal experience I am satisfied that the ex- cessive heat, the want of shade from trees, the dryness of the air, the sandy or rooky ground covered with little more than dry saltbush, and the scarcity of water tend to produce a climate which is trying in the highest degree to Europeans. The effect on the Inspector and myself as new «omers was most depressing, although Mr. Mann assured us that we were fortunate in having more favourable ...

LAND REGULATIONS AND OUR CLIMATE. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

LAND REGULATIONS AND OUJfct CLIMATE. [FROM THE WEST ATJSTUAXIAN. i "WHEX we find such proposals made as some of those contained in the Land Regulations framed last year by a Select Committee of the Legislature, and recently published in the Govern- ment Gazette-proposals based ap- parently upon the assumption that climatic conditions can never be caused to vary, and that the present stale of the different portions of the colony as regards agricultural capabilities and resources for supporting a population must ever remain the same, one cannot but be struck with thefactthat we have not yet realised iu its full sense the mission of man to " subdue the earth," and bring it into subjection to his needs. (ED rp us, in a recent number of the Leader, discusses this question at some length and it is one of great interest to West Australians, for in no colony of the group is the present area of land capable of supporting a population so infinitesimally small as compared with that which can b...

M. PASTEUR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

M. PASTEUR. M. PASTEUR was recently entertained at dinner by the National Congress of Vet- erinary Sureeons now sitting in Paris. In hts speech on the occasion the illus- trious professor attributed all his success to his tenacity of purpose, which, he said, constituted hts whole strength. It had taken him fifteen years to resolve the problems of the malady of silk worms, of splenic fever in sheep, and of canine rabies, w-hile for the problem of ferment- ation and of spontaneous generation more than twenty years had been re- quired. At the sitting preceding the dinner an interesting statement was made bj a reterinary surgeon in relation to M. Pasteur's researches into the mi crobian disease of pigs known as rouget. The discovery of the microbe was made in France in 1882 by Thuillier. In that year the number of pigs who died from it ia the southern departments only was no less than 20,000. After patiently experi- menting M. Pasteur succeeded m obtain- ing a lymph which has been prove...

PIONEERS AND THE NATIVES. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

PIONEERS AND THE NATIVES. To the Editor. SIB,-I was much interested in this morning's paper with the letter of A VEET OLD COLONIST referring to the natives and settlers on the Gascoyne, and entirely concur in all he has said. I think I know him, and if he is the person I mean, to my knowledge, he nearly lost his life one time hy the natives ; and there is not amore humane man in the colony. I wish he had signed his name at the bottom of his letter. I am a very old colonist too, and twice, in my younger days, nearly lost my life by the natives ; but, thank God, they never hurt me, nor I them. When I estab- lished Nicol Bay my last words to Charlie Nairne, when I shook hands with him, were : -"If you find the natives too troublesome you must shoot at them." But he never did, until they nearly killed him with their waddles, and, had it not been for young Conway, who came instantly to his rescue, they wouid have killed him. The first blood that was shed in this colony was by the natives...

QUARTERLY RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

QUARTERLY RETURNS. ' WHAT can be the reason why the last I quarterly roturas of revenue and expen ' utture, to which all have been looking I forward with so much interest, have not -yet been issued ? Of late the Treasury, considering that they only issue complete returns, instead of merely approximate ones as in the ether colonies,-nave been particularly prompt. The present delay is therefore the more annoying. Of course no one who is not behind the scenes can tell what is standing in the way, but we can make a shrewd guess that some of the departments are behind hand in furnishing the information re- quired of them. Some of these officials probably think that, as upon the Treasury the public will lay all the blame, there is no necessity that they should hurry them- selves. Really the Government should make enquiries and ascertain who is in fault. This may cause a little more i promptitude on a I utera occasion.

Prefacing my remarks by stating that I am an old settler-indeed one of the few remaining, of the very first arrivals in the colony, I have been well acquainted with all that lias taken place in its various districts during upwards of fifty years. I am personally known to many of the young settlers on the Gas- coyne and I have beeu intimately well acquainted with the parents of others. Naturally I have felt grieved and indig- nant at the treatment they have received not only at the present time, but under the last administration, As a body a finer lot of young fellows never settled a new country. Most of them are men of good birth, good education and good character. Men whose kind and humane treatment of the blacks is well known, also their wonderful forbearance uuder long continued aggression...

A policeman goes round to all the different homesteads with ! a large form and asks for the numbers of cattle, horses, sheep, &c., and the number of acres of cereals and the bushels per acre and so on. This periodical visit ef the policeman generally takes place in December, at a time when farmers are very busy about their crops, and is it likely if one happens to be at work half a mile from home, with possibly half a dozen...
