lquandra & qa tamndaqd NEC TEMIAEE NEC TIM D0 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1909. WE hlave been supplied with the de tails of the figures presented to the Minister of Railways by Couucillor J. W. Leckie on thie occasion of the deputation of last week. It will be seen that a good case has been made out, arnd, if the correctness of the figures are borne out upon investiga tion, it seems to us that the Ministry cannot do otherwise than place the line in the forefront of their programme. Seeing that a sinking fund to wipe off the capital cost of the line in six years has been provided for in the estimates, there should not be any delay owing to complications arising over the Trawool scheme, because that big work, even if it is decided to stare at once, will take at least seven years to complete.

GUM ARABIC PRODUCED BY ANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 26 February 1909
CUM'ARABIOCPRODUCED BY ANTS. -4 Gum arabic is an exudation from certain species of ncacia'. In order to obtain the gum tne stem must be cut or perforated so that the juice may exude, and we are told by Mr. Walter IIussu. who habs just been. investigating the gum-ptoduction or German East Africa, that in the majority of ccses the necessary per !oration is accontplisihed by ants. without whose latbours, therefore, the world would nor get its uupply' of gum arabic-at least with the pre sent ease. Says Mr. Busse :-" Apart from the rare wounds Inflicted accidently by man, animals. storms. etc., all .:...ction of gum in this country is provoked by ants. The ants perfor ate the bark of the acacinato gain admittance into the wood, where they lay their eggs in the excava tions, which are somel lirnes of con siderable extent. The acucias with soft wood generally show few. wounds of this kind ; the hardwood acacias are riddled with them. each perforation being mat ked with a globule of gum. Th...

Victoria Racing Club. The Autumn Meeting is, 'after the' Spring Meeting, at which the Melbourne. Cup is run, the most important racing fixture held south of the line, and, great as is the general interest in the Spring Meeting. it is questionable whether the form, which has be? shown qver both' long and short courses by the hlrses' w'liihI made their debut there and in the varsous events which have taken plaeo in Mel bourne, Adelaide, Sydney, West Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand have'notex cited wider interest among the owners of Iboth sprinters and stayers as well as in the minds of the public generally in the prospects of the horses entered for the Newmarket Handicap, where all our fastest fliers meet, and in the Australian Cupt where all our stoutest horses try con clusions in a race over two miles and a quarter, which hIs given the hb.ndiealpper every opportunity to gauge their form....

Alexandra Cricketers in Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 26 February 1909
Alexandra Cricketers In Melbourne. (Br Ova Own RaPoar?m.) A number of years have passed since a team of Alexandra cascketers visited Melbourne to try conclusions with city clubs, and when arrangements were made this tc?oun to play two matches in Mel bourne, the local cricketers had been eagerly looking forward to a good trip, and they were not disappointed. The first snatch was played uaainet Preston on Saturday and arranged with the Wanderers club, who picked a combined team from the three clubs competing in the district association. On Monday, the match against the Melbourne Cricket Club, arranged by Mr W. H. Whiting, was contested, by the sense team almost. with a couple of alterations. The team and a number of supporters, including ladies and gentlemen, numbering about 80, left Alexandra on Friday last, in the best of spirits; in fact, so happy that the 16 boys who had to travel from Alexandra Road to Cathkin in a dirty open wood truck, owing to the scanty accommodation provided...
Johnson and Australian Loyalty. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 26 February 1909
Johnson and Australian Loyalty. Mr Johnson, Nl.H.R., has come in for a good deal of execration lately, and, candidly speaking, illr Johnson, M.H.l., deserves all he gets and more. Mr Johnson has discovered a new version of the repulsivo stinking fish theme, and has yelled it at the top of his voice. As Aus tralia has already been advertised in these terms till she was sickened with weariness and till European communities were beginning to think that the Commonwealth must scent, the Pacific and Southern,.Oceaps with the odour of dead tblrales,. we wtre:all considering the necessity of entombing, hanging, or other wise repressing criers of decayed herrings and decomposed flathead when Mr. Johnson ducked up with his new yell. Now it is advisable to reconsider the wisdom of adopting stringent means of dealing with defamers of" Australia. When the defamers are members ofl Parliament, the process of punishing them is simple and easy; it is in the hands of their constituents to hurl them i...
