THM P «!?? HORSE. FOOT, AND MAUINK -By Our ConcBpomlontB. Danger of Large Fields. A smash in the Maiden Handicap at Can terbury Park last Saturday again drew marked attention to the danger of large fields. This course is safe enough to carry twenty-five runners, the number which competed on Saturday, but the trouble was that there was no chance for boys riding behlrld the leaders should a fall occur. The authorities should make some limitation. It would nerve a dual purpose of rendering more safe th« mii:«cr *.r the jockey, and would give the public a better chance of landing their bets. One youngster, Leslie Bragg, died as a result of the injuries received, and two others are, at the time of writing, still in a dangerous condition. This paper thinkB that twenty horses is a big enough field for anybody, with the exception of the bookmaker, who would like 120 in the race. A Good Win.

COUNTRY GOSSIP NEWS FROM ALL SOURCES By HAYSEED. Penguin at Port Macquarie, While net fishing in Limeburner's Creek, Port Macquarie, recently, a fisherman found an unfamiliar object amongst his captors. It was a bird apparently, but of so strange a type that the puzzled fisherman submitted it for ex amination to Mr. Thomas Dick, who pronounced it to be a penguin of the small species. . On rare occasions, after heavy easterly gales, dead specimens have been found washed up on the ^.vank^ uui llliS 19 3U^)JU3CU LU L/C lll£ HI SI Uf casion on: which a live penguin has been seen so far north.

Its presence he .attributed to the very cold current which he says set north along the whole eastern coast of Australia in the latter part of last year, and was the...

BARGAINS FOR EVERYONE Prices arc rising in every centre of manufacture. There is a scarcity of skilled labor to handle the already short supplies of raw materials ; the energies of the Nations are concentrated on the pro duction of munitions and war essentials, and manufacture for ex port has become a minor consideration. Still higher costs, there _ fore, are imminent. . The advice of those who study the markets is 'BUY NOW -FOR FUTURE REQUIREMENTS.' We emphasise this point; it will very considerably extend the purchasing power of all who wisely act on the suggestion. Our reputation stands behind the state ment that the REDUCTIONS set out in the SALE CATALOGUE are in every case GENUINE. : Selections are printed on page 13 of this' issue.

The position may a*» well be faced; and the position is that if it does not get a constant accession of seven thousand men a month the new recruiting cam paign fails. Meantime, there are a whole lot ...? of new rules. One is that you mustn't men tion the word Conscription.
