Cultivation of Grasses. ? (By Ancona.). :.. ? The lengihy and unf ortunato;drought which has. proved euch a calamity to the state of N.S.W., will prove the necessity of cultivating artificial fodder in place of the native grasses and shrubs which, have 'been depended upon in the pn6t, and which are now partially destroyed.

Assessment under the Rabbit Act [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 3 October 1902

Assessment under the Rabbit Act A few days ago Mi1. R. G. Dulhunty, secretary of the Dubbo Rabbit Board and P. and S. P. Board, wrote to the Department asking if the funds neces sary, to finance the Rabbit Board, this year could be borrowed from the P. and S. P. Board, whoso account woe £1500 or £1600 in credit, and thus obviate nay necessity ior a Kabwt Board, assessment during -tho present year. A reply has been received that such a proceeding would not be legal. It will therefore, be necessary for the Rabbit Board to make an assessment for the current year. As this will have to be done on the Ia6t return's sant in, it is obvious that many stockowners will be assessed for sheep that have long ; since ceased to exist.— vDa&Jo Liberal.

It has only recently beon erected, and although not fitted with Machine Shears, possesses, in every other.re spoct, the necessary adjustments, which go to complete a thoroughly up to-date shed' The builder was Mr. Jacob Aiattiiews, ana tnis gentleman spent much time in carefully prepar ing the plans, and collecting ideas, be fore starting to work. Shearing is. being pushed forward, and although the board is not full, still the work is being done in an expeditious manner. One of the stands has been set apart for the benefit of the hospital. Here the learners are afforded an opportu nity of acquiring the art, and the sheep thus shorn, go to the credit of the Peak Hill Hospital. At this par ticular spot, our genial friend, Mr. Yeo, is much in evidence.

BENEFITS OF PROTECTION. '{To the'Editor Peak JTiU Express. J Sir, — My contention is definite — that tho benefits of Protection, in any in dustry, are not received by those in tended to. enjoy them, but are appro priated by the speculators in land.

BENEFITS OF PE0TECT1ON. {To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) Sir, — Tlie fiscal question has been pretty well debated during the lost half century, and the b.est'-intellects of the day have argued the pros and com of Freetrade aud protection. , One would think that thero was little fresh to bo brought forward on the subject, but your BoneFpnto correspondent evi dently thinkB otherwJso, and has sfcep j)ed into the controversial arena as an exponent 01 the gospel according to St. Oobden. It appeal's that some of his neighbours had to pay (or he states they had to pay) £2 2s 9d duty on im ported turnips, in addition to the 1 2s thoy originally cost, so Protection is wrong, and he makes a lot of question able and unproved statements as to what Protection has done, is doiug, And will do.
