CITY YARDS. Maiden Bros, report— [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
CITY YARDS. Maiden Bros. report Fat Pigs. — Although the supplies yarded this week were not very heavy, they proved to be above the requirements. Buyers, al ready having full supplies on hand from re cent heavy yardings, were not anxious to buy, and values for all descriptions are the lowest we have seen for some consider able time, the decline being more noticeable on light baconers ; in fact, it was with great difficulty sales for these sorts could be effected at all, even at the very low rates ruling. We quote extra big and heavy fat pigs to 55a, extra prime baconers 35s to 44s, prime and heavy 30s to 86s, light 22s 6d to 28s 6d, best porkers to 20s 6d, good 15s 6d to 18s, others from lls.

Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
Gossip. Sitting in a pleasant home not long ago we fell to discussing microscopes, and the part they have played in the progress of the world during the last few years. If it had not been for the new eyes which science has given to the sons of men we would not have been able to talk about germs, bacilli, microbes, and things of that ilk with the easy grace that we do to day. 'When you can investigate the doings of living objects so small that 30,000 of them, laid end to end, ' wouldn't be an inch long, then you can give the microscope the credit. There are few instruments in this world that are so valuable as this. It has shown us more of the miracle of life \ than was ever possible to our fore I fathers, and we can rejoice, if we care i to, over the many things we know ' that were hidden from the wise men ^ ] of earlier days. ? You remember we were having a ? yarn about Holland the other day 1 'Well, in the ancient town of Delft I discovered, to my own intense satisfac , tion, the ...

HORSES. Hill, Clark and Co. report—. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
HORSES. Hill, Clark and Co. report The supplies at Camperdown during the past month have been exceedingly heavy, and, as a result, sales have 'been excep tionally dull for any medium and inferior sorts, results in many instances barely covering expenses. This has been par ticnlarly the cape during the. past week, when, owing to the absence of the Indian buyers, who in some instances have com pleted their purchases, sales have been most difficult to effect, well-grown light horses showing quality and substance, and extra heavy draughts, however, command good competition, and unless intending con signors can send either of these classes we would strongly advise them to hold their horses back ; anyway, for the present. We shall at all times be very pleased to advise as to market prospc-cts on application. Our sales have been through the yards. 267 head, account 0. Dwyer, H. J. Eccleston. Jardine, Harkness. J.

This supply was con siderably above requirements, consequently opening sales showed a, fall on late rates, and, although the Sydney Meat Preserving Company materially assisted the market by purchasing an unusually large number, it was impossible to sustain values, which went from Gd to Is below last week's quotations, the decline on lower qualities specially being more particularly noticeable. Lambs were in moderate supply and the demand was strong, prices showing a slight improvement for all descriptions.

The Tick Disease. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
The Tick Disease. (Abridged from the ' Queens lander.') A representative of the ' Queens lander ' waited upon Mr. P. R. Gordon, the Queensland Chief Inspec tor of Stock, in quest of information as to the present extent of tick disease in the Northern portion of that colony. Mr. Gordon said the disease was bad until February last, when the ticks began to disappear. At the end of March, however, they re-appeared with greater virulence, especially in the coast districts north of Towns ville. In the first attack it was no ticed that very few of the quiet cattle suffered, and, though tick infested, did not die. But in the present at tack they suffer even worse than the wild cattle, and the young cattle, which did not suffer previously, are at present badly affected. Along the stock routes in the Norch Kennedy district the ticks are bad ; but they don't seem to spread far from the stock routes, chough ultimately, unless the disease is checked, there is every probability of their spreading...
Artesian Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
Artesian Water. From the ' Queensland Grazier.' Mr. Morehead's letter on a fuller utilisation of artesian water in the Western country has evoked a large amount of discussion. Mr. Richard Newton, speaking of Western affairs, and especially the smaller grazing leases, says, ' Settlement on those Western lands is a difficult problem. The dry ness of the country makes it difficult for selectors to take up small areas, as the outlay for providing water is often out of proportion to any return that can be got. During my electoral cam paign (for the Barcoo) I advocated the putting down of bores by the Govern ment, who could charge 5 per cent, on the outlay in the rent of the farms that might be laid out along bore streams. A man would willingly pay an extra rent per acre for country with running water through it .... I fail to see why the Grown as land lord should not make its estate attractive to tenants if it can be done without loss to the Stater' Mr Newton has hit the nail on the head...

Station Life in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
Station Life in Queensland. A contributor writing to the ' Queenslander' says, — ' I cannot tell how many years it is since we had a good rainy season about Birdsville. Foi the past three and a-half years we have not had 12in. of rain, and only for the rivers coming down — that is the Herbert and Diamantina — the people would have had to leave this part of the country. It) is only the great quantity of ground that the flood waters cover that keeps the stock alive, on account of the herbage, &c , that grows after it. The squatters have not a very enviable time of it, what with drought, taxes and rabbits.' Stern Parent : ' You used to write every week, but of late you have only written every month.' Undergraduate : '? Yes ; but you must admit, guv'nor, that when I did write of late, I asked for more money than I did when I wrote every week.'
Mudgee Agricultural Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
Mudgee Agricultural Show The 14 th annual show of the Mudgee District Pastoral and Agri cultural Association was opened on Tuesday. The attendance was large, and would, no doubt, have been larger but for the threatening state of the weather. Everything was in perfect order, and the exhibits were numerous and of a good quality. The exhibits from the Government experimental farm, as usual, attracted a great deal of attention. The stock and horse exhibits eclipsed anything that had ever been seen there. Some very good sheep were shown, and the farm and dairy produce competition was very keen, the exhibits being of ex ceptionally good quality. There were also exhibits of poultry, pigs, horticul ture, wines, vehicles, agricultural im plements, and industrial exhibits. There was also an exhibit of marble work from Bathurst, which was highly spoken of. The show was concluded on Wednesday and was a success.
Earmarking Cattle. TO THE EDITOR "S.S AND S. JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Stock and Station Journal — 15 May 1896
Earmarking Cattle. TO THE EDITOR ' S.S AND S. JOURNAL.' Sir, — A short reply to Mr. Munro and I will trespass no more on your space or your readers' patience. Mr. Munro appears uuaware that in Queensland earmarks are registered and adjusted to procure dissimilariuy by district inspectors, consequently all \ji*i\j\ji.Kj kj j vuw 'JlWllU I1UU1U KJ\uV»L UUU same earmark. Small additional cuts are granted for special purposes, as milkers, studs, etc. There is a penalty for using any unregistered mark. The drover referred to in my pre vious letter admii.-tod that the buast; pointed out to him was a straggler. Had there been any doubt tho beast would have been impounded and the brand clipped. Attention being attracted by a strange earmark, I do not think the difficulty of reading tingle-pioce brands in the proposed proportions would be great. The simpler the brand the better. A triangle on the cheek was a well known Queensland brand, to which i he) owner would gladly re vert if permitted....
