A Successful Droving Trip. ROWLAND MCTAGGART. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 February 1898
A Successful Droving Trip. Rowland McTaggart. In a district such as this, where large drafts of cattle are annually delivered after long journeys from Queensland, and, in a district, we might add, where without doubt the best drovers in these colonies reside, it is natural that con siderable interest is taken by graziers and drovers in the failure or success which these numerous drafts meet with when en route for the Hunter. The terrible drought which has only just broken up in Queensland rendered it almost impossible, during the past eight months, to bring cattle out of of that colony, that is from any great distance over the border. Hundreds of miles had to be traversed almost destitute of grass and water and sad are the reports of the hardships met with and losses sustained j in some cases 25 per cent, pesished before the more southern districts were reaehed, where rains bad fallen and grass was met with. Among these tales of the grand old game it is pleasing to learn of the succ...

Our Letter Box. [The Editor will at all times be glad to receive communications upon subjects oi local or general interest; but it must be distinctly understood that \vc do not identify ourselves with the opinions of correspondents.] To the Editor of the Chronicle. Sir,—I seo in to-day's paper whero you are blaming pcoplo up. the river for taking the opportunity while tho river being in flood to cast prickly pears in so that they would be washed away. You are very wrong in sup posing such a thing. The pears that have been washed on to the low-lying flats have been torn up by the roots off the banks of tho Page River, which is lined with them, especially on the reserves. I was carnpod on tho Page when we had the first flood, and on tho Hunter when, the second ono came. 1 remain, sir, yours, &c., W. DICKINSON. Muswellbrook, 16/2/98.
