Answers to Corres pondents. [It is not always possible \o answer communications under this heading in the issue following receipt, and sometimes several issues appear before we are able to do so.] A. H. — Have made enquiries about that, as you will see. It's pleasant to read the letters of intelligent people. That one interested me greatly. Spencer's book on ' Education ' is one of the best ever written. It is many years since I read it, but the clean cut philosophy of the book impressed me deeply, and I'm glad you and your people enjoy it. G. B. — There is a deficiency on the one book of 8d, but that is all right. ' Gossip ' costs Is 3d paper, 3s cloth, 5s 6d leather and gilt edges. Easter cards have bfien sent bo L. R.

Anthrax in Sheep. TO THE EDITOR "S. S. AND S. JOURNAL" [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 3 April 1896
Anthrax in Sheep. TO THE EDITOR ' S. S. AND S. JOURNAL' Sir, — Anthrax amongst sheep is, undoubtedly, one of the more serious drawbacks which are apt to affect in juriously one of the most important of Australia's industries. A success ful remedy to completely prevent, or, at least, to reduce to insignificance, this destructive disease amongst sheep, merits, therefore, a well-deserved recognition. It is for the benefit of pastorali&ts in general that I publicly acknow ledge the highly satisfactory results derived from having my sheep on Warree Station inoculated by the agents of Messrs. McGarvie Smith and Gunn, of Denison-street, Wool lahra, Sydney, seeing that no deaths due to anthrax amongst the sheep have taken place since their treatment by them. Yours, etc., S. Taylor. Goonoo Station. [We gladly publish this letter, be cause the subject is one that should receive a good deal more attention than it does.— Ed. ' S.S. and S. J.'] Mr. Austen, Q.C., was one of the most popul...

A Cow Devil. A WEIRD METAMORPHOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 3 April 1896
A Cow Devil. A WEIRD METAMORPHOSIS. It is well known that many cowa undergo a strange change on their passage from the quiet of a country place to the fever and noise of the town. The mild-eyed mothers are transformed. Dr-rharjo bv incantations of the railway whistle, into fierce brutes and uncontrollable. A gentle man in Sydney wrote to a well-known pastoralist r.o send him a quiet cow, and the results will be best understood by the following letter : — [copy.] Dear Mr. ? , I regret to tell you that the quiet cow you sent me has turned out the very reverse of the .sort of animal I asked for. I did not want a performing cow. indeed, I have no sort of use for such an accom plished animal. What I required was a common every-day cow, that would give without undue persuasion a fair quantity of milk. Such an animal could easily have been obtained locally, but I thought to avail myself of your undoubted experience, and I knew that if you would, you could suit my want exactly. I still thin...

Bad Meat in Melbourne. A BUTCHER AND A POULTERER FINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 3 April 1896
Bad Meat in Melbourne. A BUTCHER AND A POUL TERER FINED. On Monday last a butcher named Robert Vince, of South Melbourne, was fined £25, with =6G 6s costs, at the local court, for having a number of diseased carcases of mutton, etc., on his premises, The evidence showed thab the meat was in a- shocking state and was not fib for mongrel dogs to eat, let alone human beings. Also Robert Mitchell Moore, a poulterer, was fined £5 for having a number of diseased rabbits on his premises. These are the men thab should get the full penalty of the law, and nob the salesmen who sell bhe meab, nob knowing ib to be diseased. The tine of £25 was a very heavy one, bub nob too heavy— he should have gob gaol, without the option of a fine; for a man who will sell rotten meat like that is the worst kind of criminal and should be treated as such.

The Agricultural Show FINE WEATHER. A BIG DISPLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 3 April 1896
The Agricultural Show FINE WEATHER. A BIG DISPLAY. There have been many shows in Australia, and there are a good many more to be held, but if any of them will eclipse the show of the Royal Agricultural Society of 1896, they will be shows indeed. This great. show was opened on Wednesday under the most satisfactory conditions, a bright blue sky, and a clear fresh breeze, which makes one feel that this isn't a bad world alter all, and Aus tralia is not the worst country to live in. Although there was a lot done, and a great many prizes awarded on Wednesday, there is still a great deal to be Jdone. Yesterday the Governor, Lord Hampden, opened the show at 3 o'clock, and was accompanied by Lord Brassey and Sir Fowell Btixton, and the members of the Government House party. They were entertained at a banquet in the evening. But now to the show itself and its exhibitors and exhibits. There is every class of farm and station pro duction under the sun shown at this monster carnival, viz , hors...
THE COMING RAM SALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 3 April 1896
THE COMING RAM SALES. In our last issue we published the agreement that was drawn up in re lines as last year, but experience has suggested some inoditi cations. First, the sales begin on Monday instead of Wednesday. Of course that has its drawbacks, because there are no Sunday trains, but we expect all the buyers to be here for the sheep show, which takes place during the previous week, lu is to gard to the coming ram sales. The agents are acting on the same be a great show, and will be specially attractive. Then the sales are to be continuous. Last year we had long intervals between the sales. That was owing to the fact that the time allowance had been appointed, so that each agent knew and advertised what time his sale would take place. The conse quence was that if one sale finished half a day before it was expected there were no more sales that day. This led to a great waste of time, and to language of which we trust the Recording Angel made no memor andum. This year the sales w...
