Glare acceptances close on Wednesday, 29th inst. The English thoroughbred market is practically closed to Indian buyers, j£ul this is probably responsible for the despatch to Australia of a com mission to secure high-class perform ers- capable of winning the next Vice roy's Cup. Mr J. R. Hardie has been ; coinmissioned by an Indian sportsman to buy either Kennaijuhair, Wolaroi, or Gloaming if they are-for sale, but as 6000 guineas has already been re ined for Kennaquhair before he ran second ,in the Melbourne Cup, and an oiler of 5000 guineas was insufficient to induce the owner of Wolaroi io part with that, colt at two years, it appears that at least live ligux-es will be necessary to tempt the owners of those/champions.

WHERE WHITE ANTS ARE WELCOME. [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 27 January 1919
WHERE WHITE ANTS ARE ' WELCOME. ; Residents of tropical regions srene rally look, upon the white ant as an ■ unmitigated- nuisance, on account of the damage wrought by this insect in sH kinds of woodwork.
