For the Farmers. HOW TO TREAT COLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 January 1899
Tor the l;u meis. ? — ? ? HOW TO TREAT COLIC. Colic is of two kinds — spasmodic or cramp colic, and flatulent or windy colic. In the spasmodic form there is contrac tion or spasm of a portion of the in testines. Tho contraction is due to indigestible food, largo drinks of cold water when the animal is heated, chills, cold rains, intestinal parasites, concre tions, and sudden changes of weather. ' Spasmodic colic always appears suddenly. ;- If fecdior. tbo animal stops, moves about, ~ ' ] stamps, looks af his 'flanks, and is generallj_^ ., uneasy. As the pain increases he paws 1 the ground, throws himself down, rolls, jj and gets up again. As the attack pro- i£ grosses tho intervals of ease become,- tij shorter. Horses affected with this form \ - of colic become very violent during the '» spasms of intense pain, throwing 'them selves on tho ground, rolling from1 side to side, and jumping up only' to. throw themselves down again. If- tho x animal is exceedingly violent he should be re...
PEA HARVESTING. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 January 1899
PEA HARVESTING. Cutting peas has evor been troublesome work and the cause of trials of numerous ways to lessen labor, implement-makers ha\ ing contributed their share of interest and experiment in the colonies. 'When sown on the flat broadcast, and when pigs , are available for gleaning, the horse-rake ' answers to pull them up ; the horse has to be driven over tho rake's width, and when filled swerved out of lino on to raked ground to empty, and swerved in again without turning round, making an ir regular broadsido of growing crop, but which works in well enoutfh with a little practice. Soino use the mowing machine, followed up by forkcrs, but probably more aro sown by hand than any other way. As v,-2 find the drill and hilling up plan Being adopted by a good few growers, a few hints for han esting may help them. The best plan we have tried is the fern hook, taking ono row of peas only, followed by a fork gathering tho single row ; when a forkful is held, putting it on one side, ge...

Importing Pigs from Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 January 1899
Importing Pigs fioiii Vic tpiia. . ?? ' . ?? . «. 'The old hackneyed illustration about bringing coals to ; Newcastle has been .once more exemplified, and in an extra ordinary way. We had thought that tne';,land;of tho North West Coast ranked amongst the most prolific 'and profitable in' the colonies, and that on it almost anything— from a thorough bred horse* to '.' a farmyard chicken, from & crop ot potatoes to the most delicate of flowers — could be reared or raised in a: style fit to compete against anything produced in the old world or the new. But it seems we were mistaken, for we learn that those who follow the profit able though unromantic occupation of raising pigs in the north of the Colony of Tasmania have been unable to meet the demand of a single curing factory ! It seems* almost incredible, but it u nevertheless true, that the directors of the Emu Bay Bacon Factory have been compelled to go to the mainland for sup plies. Not in the. whole, of the north of the i...

THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 January 1899
THE TOWN' HALL, l'' ?, The Town Hall question was advanced another stage at the Devonport 'Town Board meeting this week; 'Mr T. S. Luttrell, the architect, being, authorised to prepare a working plan. The next move will be theconsideration of tenders, and then the desired work— the building in progress. Matters financial -are practically settled. The ratepayers, by an overwhelming majority, vested their representatives with power to raise the requisite amount, and how or from whom to borrow is a secondary consideration with townspeople. They may rest con tent that this ]i'..i«e of the subject will be dealt with to the best possible advantage. Efforts were made . at the meeting on Monday last to re-open the question of site, to detract from the .propriety ..of: a new building, and, in fact, to remodel the oft-exprcssqd ideas of the Board on the matter. That the Devonport Town Hall was to be erected on an allotment previously secured for the purpose, and built in accordance with the d...

Sir Philip Pysh has left the land in which he has worked so long to assume the reins of office at Westminster, and his work during the next two ? years— - for it 13 unlikely, with the probable advent of federation;; that 'his absence will be. of greater duration — will be watched in Tasmania - carefully and closely. Great things' are ex pected of him, and he will find that_ there is much to to tor the progress of Tasmania. * His passing from active' Parliamentary life in this Colony will not end Ms/ responsibility, for in taking up his quarters in, London he will be more 'thai e\er in 'a position to ' render Tasmania , signal service.

Commercial. The "Advocate "Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 January 1899
Commercial. The ' Advocate ' Office, Thursday Evening. £. : The potato inarket yesterday was a bit mixed as faras quotations were concerned. --~. ' Some dealers would not operate over i£4/10/, others offered JE4/12/6, and at this \ figure transactions wero effected, whilst another quote was JM/15/, and a line or two were disposed of at this figure ; but a couple of producers who brought in loads would not be tempted, and elected to run the risk of shipping to Sydney, consider ing that by so doing they would reap a better figure. As far as these quotations are concerned it is difficult to say how long they will last. Some dealers con sider they must Boon come down, others say they would not be surprised to see a rise. Yesterday a few loads were oarted to the eastern wharf and a few also to the west side, and the evening train brought forward five trucks. From what can bo learned digging is fairly free ip the eastern districts, but most farmers incline to the opinion that there will n...
