COUNTRY NEWS. - -- € - (FROM OUR OWN CORREBSPONDENTS.) IflNGAROOMA, Thursday. Haymaking has been in full swing during the past fortnight, the mowing machine being heard in all directions. The Xmas holidays passed over very quietly indeed in this district, many go ing away to sports, etc., at other places. The anniversary of the Wesleyan Sunday-school took place last Sunday. The church was very nicely decorated with suitable 'texts, flowers, ferns, etc. The sermon in the morning was preached by they Rev. W. Taylor and that in the evening by Mr. Du gan to a full church. Miss Olive Dip rose presided at the organ in a very ellicient manner. A feature of the ser vices was the rendering of the hymns by the children, who sang splendidly, reflecting great credit on their conduc tor, and amply repaying him for his training. On Wednesday the annual picnic was given in a paddock kindly lent by Mr. Lade, when the children spent a most enjoyable time, despite the hot wea ther. Games, racing for ...

SHREDS AND PATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

S1RUEDS AlND PATCHES. BY ARGUS. Here's a "shred" that our Tasmanian farmers should specially read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest. It was told me by a Tasmanian lately re turned from Sydney. Among the friends he called on was a well-known whole sale produce merchant, who after the first greetings were over remarked "Is there much of the little island left yet?" Nonplussed at the query, he wanted an explanation, and was im mediately requested to come out into the yard. Pointing to a pile of red dish soil, the Sydneyite said-"That's my month's purchase of the island, and every four of five weeks I have carted away a similar heap. Your Tasma nian farmers send it here, and try to make us believe it is potatoes, and grumble if we object to pay from £3 to £5 a ton for it. Judging by the quantity that comes to me alone, I came to the conclusion that the island' was fast disappearing, hence my ques tion." As there appear to be some Boer sympathisers in this little island of ours, I've tak...

O'Reilly, priest of St. Dominic's, Wynberg, has a letter refuting certain wild statements (made in a previous issue of the same journal) regarding the status of Roman Cath olics in the Transvaal.

PASTURAGE FOR MILK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

PASTURAG- "FOR MILK PRODU(' TION. The mainstay of the dairy farmer in good pasturage. He may give atten tion to a certain amount of cropping. But with his 20, 30, 50, or more cows, his hands will be pretty full without de voting very much time or energy to the growth of crops, 'save such as may be required for his' herd of milkers. Neither the 'production of wheat, oats, or chaff may be profitable', but on the other hand, supplies of milk to the creameries and factories will .alwars bring in something to keep the not boiling. In fact, not a few have been making a good thing out of their cows, thanks to the plentiful growth of grass during the spring months. These re marks are-introductory to the topic at the head of this note, namely, the best milk-producing pastures. Of course amcngst the host of farmers denendiung chiefly upon pasturage for a livelihood, paddccl:s differ very considerably in regard to their condition and supply of food for stock. In other words, Ihere is pasturage...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

DEarI' Flamingo,-I am going to tell you how a boy can prove himself of sterling worth; the anecdote I send will give an instance:-"Ten years frotu now, when I get to be a man," said John to his grandmother, who was winding up the tall clock, "I'll do that for you; I'll do lots of things. I wish I was a man now." "John!'. called Uncle Will from the yard, "come here." John ran out and found his uncle standing beside the wood-shed with a large dish partly filled with eggs. "I want you to help me," he said. "The old speckled hen has made a nest under the shed, and I don't want her to sit there. I'm too big to get into such a place, but you're just the right size to reach under. Take this stick and push the hen off, as gently as possible." John lay down fiat on:the ground, and edged himself partly in under the shed floor. Far back in one corner old Speckle had made herself a nest, sure enough. She sat there very comfort ably and did not move, for she thought no one could reach her. You s...

POULTRY. NOTES BY TASMA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

POULTRY. NOTES BY TASMA. Fowls under domestication may be divided broadly into three classes, so far as the conditions under which they exist are concerned:-(a) Fowls on un limited range; (b) fowls in enclosed grass runs of limited area; and (c) fowls in small gravelled or sanded runs. Before entering minutely into ;the variety of food necessary in each of the above cases we must consider carefully what is really meant by the term "food." To the student of physio logy the answer is simple enough. In the first place, herle Is in every' ani mal a certain amount of wear and tear -a constant using up of the animal 'tissue. This must be replaced from some outside source, or in plain words must be rebuilt. The material neces sary for such repairs is very different in its composition to that which goes to furnish the heat and energy of the animal as a "going concern." We are thus brought face to face with the fact that animals (fowls included) require their: food to supply them with ma ter...

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

(To the Editor.) Sir,-I read with very great interest your correspondent "Christiana's" let ter on the war in South Africa, appear ing in your issue of to-day, and must compliment the lady on her intimate knowledge of the matters involved re the cause of the sanguinary conflict as above, now in progress. "Christiana" is quite right-it is a war instigated by a policy of greed and grab, The mass of evidence before the world demonstrating the fact that long years ago the Boer oligarchy, in conjunction with some of their countrymen in Cape Colony, conceived the scheme of estab lishing by force of arms the whole of South Africa as a Dutch republic proves your fair correspondent has hit the mark exactly. Naturally the Im perial Government, upon being con vinced of the existence of this dan gerous conspiracy, and realising that the huger importations of war material by the Transvaal Executive was the practical outcome of such policy, must oppose by all the. force at their disposal this gam...

STRAY CATTLE AT. PENGUIN. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Will you kindly allow me space in the "Examiner" to avail myself of the privilege of an Englishman to in dulge in: a little wholesome grumbling. I would be very glad if someonie who is in authority and ought to know would in the interest of the general public kindly inform us who the main road through Penguin really belongs to, be cause from the number of cattle and horses running about the road one would think some of the residents re garded it as a sort of common or publie grazing ground for their cows. Now, sir, while we would not wish to dc prive the poor cow of the mouthful of grass she gets there, yet we would like to point out the source of danger this has become (especially under present circumstances) to travellers, pedes trians, and cyclists, and of annoyance to everyone. The roadway has of ne cessity been so narrowed through the railway being so close as to leave barely sullicient room in many places for two vehicles to pass...
