District News. URIARRA. A SNAKE YARN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905

j District News. | URIARRA. [?] A SNAKE TA^S-. Here's a snake yarn — a real true bill, with nothing fishy about it. A few days since, two Queaubeyan ites, Mr. John Webb and a friend, were on their way to work on Mr. Perrott's selection out here, when Mr. Webb planted his foot almost on a large tiger snake. The reptile was so enraged that it sprang at Webb, who fled for his life. Webb's mate says the. reptile didn't wriggle over the ground as snakes usually do, but seemed to glide like an ar row. The strange thing about the occurrence is that the reptile took no notice of his mate, whom it had to pass in its flight after Webb, though the former ' followed it, throwing an axe at it repeatedly. Webb, lias hardly got over the shock yet.. They say he's plucky and has a heart as big as a bush man's dinner, and would brave al most any - danger, but now he draws the linCfet tiger snakes.

TRANSMUTING TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905

TBAUSMrrrnro tike. Tims dissipates Illusion's dazzling train, And makes all men acquaint with sober truth, Chilling the heart and feveringlhe brain, He brings experience to shallow youth. Time paints decay on Beauty's peerless cheek, Transmutiug golden locks to silver hue! Entrenching brows of yore all fair and . sleek, He brings contented pride to bitter rue. Life's tender leaves he turneth pale and sere, And dashes from red lips the wine of hope ; . Love's rosy bed he changes to a bier, And empire's sway to graveyard's narrow .scope ; Proud, rova) monument, he makes down fall, ' And wipeth out man's last memorial. — Anprsw Weias.

Reminiscences. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905

1 Reminiscences. \ Something like fifty years ago, Mr. Andrew Wotherspoon was school teaching at Canberra. While there he w.-ote The Maid of Erin, a story in verse, wbhh, with other po m;, he published in 1859. The I book is dedicated to the 'Hon. Terence Aubrey Murray, M.P.' In his dedicatory note, dated ' Quean beyan, December, 1858,' the author says : — In looking around me for a patron for my little and unpretending work I found that within the circum scribed sphere of my observation, there were none whom I could more worthily or appropriately inscribe it to than yourself, inasmuch as the tale relates exclusively to Ireland ; and you fully realised my ideal . . . You will perceive that the scene of the poem is laid at a time when the ' prospects of Ireland looked so dark, and her agriculture and com merce were almost in abeyance ; but I now, when bright days and cheering ] prospects for the future have dawned upon that beautiful laud, how pleas I ing and gratifying, therefore, m...

% CORRESPONDENCE. § WOEK FO3 OUB OWV PEOPLE. — TEE IBOB BOOTS BILL. [To THK Editor.] Sir, — While there may be at present an overwhelming ma jority of the people against the adoption of anything like a wholesale policy of what is known as State Socialism — of which, presumably, the first plank is the nationalization of industries — I think it is clear from the teachings of political history that there are occasions when it is the paramount duty of government to directly as sist the growth of what may be termed the chief secondar}' na tive industries of the country, even though such assistance should have the effect of call ing into being works under private enterprise in strong competitions with State-owned and managed institutions. It has been well said that Ce present is the Iron Age, both in an inventive aud com mercial sense, and, in respect of the admittedly great natural resources of Australia in iron, ore, coal, and — be it said regret fully — in unemployed citizens, and in t...

POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 7 March 1905

rob'LTKY; Where poultry are kept in larg» numbers for profit, and on farms and other places where there is unlimited grass range, the stock should be care fully gone through at this time ol year, preparatory to next season's breeding operations, There is still a tendency with many breeders to illow their birds to become too much mon grelised, and to ignore the advantages of a crosB with some pure blood1. In stead of using half-bred Brahma or Cochin cocks, as is so often done, a few Indian Game or Dorking cocks would lead to a marvellous improve ment in the quality of the chickens, These fowls can be purchasea, too, for a few shillings each, especially when fancy points of feathering are not required, only well grown, straight breasted, strong birds. All but the finest, heaviest, and deepest keeled pullets should be wooded out, and all hens over two and a half yea's old should be got rid of. For early chickens particularly in very cold weather, it is better to use a cock in his secon...
