Rabbit Destruction. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 January 1901

Itahbit Destruction Mr H. Bowler, manager of Mr W. Lee's Middlefield station, near Nar romine, writing to the district in spector of stock (Mr B. G. Dulhunty), reports having coped with the rabbit pest very successfully on the holding by means of the use of poisoned water. He states that he has poisoned 536 at one tank since the new year. His plan is to enclose the tank with net ting, leaving outside a few small troughs accessible to rabbits hut not sheep. He uses a mixture of two dessert spoon fuls of arsenic to one bucket of water, dissolved with a quantity of epsom salts with sugar enough to sweeten the water and disguise the taste of the poison. He found as many as 90 dead rabbits in the vicinity of the tank one morning last week, but is sure that even then lie only found about three parts of the number killed, as some had no doubt reached their burrows before dying. Mr D. Cameron and others report having effectually tried a scheme of fencing in -a small tank with wire netting, ...

Absent Minded Astronomer. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 January 1901

, Absent Htuded Astronomer. 'No,' said the absent-minded as tronomer, as he dropped his applica tion for an increase of salary into the fire, and addressed his last butcher's bill to the Chief Secretary, 'I really cannot say for certain what is the origin of the mysterious shaft of light whicli has recently been noticed by Mr Lowell from his Mexican Observa tory. The extreme brilliancy of the light may have been due to a con flagration occurring during -the pro gress of the annual firemen's demon stration on the neighbouring planet, or it may have been visible to Mr Lowell only, and have been caused by a sud den blow, say from a Mexican ' greaser.' ' The interviewer took a fresh grip of his fountain pen, and looked up in quiringly. ' Of course,' continued the absent minded astronomer, hanging his hand kerchief on a brass-headed nail, and wiping his perspiring face with his new earthquake-recorder, ' there may be a political as well as an astronomi cal significance about the manifest...

The Light Taxation Fallacy. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 January 1901

The Light Taxatiou Fallacy. In the course of a trenchant article in the ' Sydney Telegraph' of Tuesday last, on the tariff controversy in this state, the high-tariff organ's light taxa tion fallacy is thus effectively ex posed : — ' The main argument of the ' Age is based on this principle, that if a duty of 5s each on silk hats realises only £300 in a year (and it realised less in Victoria in 1899), that is the entire burden on the people, and if a reduction of the duty to Is per hat should increase the duty paid to £3000, the reduction of 4s per hat in | the duty, and its consequent cost, I means an increased burden upon the people of £2700. Of course we know that Victorians who wear silk hats mainly escape this duty by paying an occasional visit to Sydney. But there will not be this God-send of a handy free port for Victorians after federa tion, if the 'Age' were to have its way, and this fact alone may win con verts to low tariffism in the sister state. But there is much more be...

The world at large has had the latest news as to the state of Her Majesty's health conveyed to them with great regularity, almost every hour of the day, since her illness, and the intense anxiety shown reached its zenith when on Saturday last they were informed that the condition of Her Majesty was critical. Then the question arose from tens of millions of people ' Does this mean death ?' The great heart of 61ie English speaking race spoke of genuine grief and sorrow. The great age of Her Majesty might have given us cause fo...

According to outside medical opinion, Her Majesty is suffering from thrombosis (coagulation of fibrin in the heart or Wood-vessel), or a clot on the brain. Origin and Progress of the Queen's Illness. London, Jan. 2Ut, 1.15 p.m. Details have not for the first time been made public of the recent state of Her Majesty's health, from which it appears that unfavourable symptoms manifested themselves some time ago. It is admitted that for the last three months Her Majesty's health has caused anxiety to her immedia:e entourage, and that she has slowly succumbed to the strain resulting from the trying events of the last year. The tension caused by public affairs was increased by the recent unfavourable turn taken by the war, by the death of her second son, the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Edinburgh), and her grandson, Prince Christian Victor of Schleswig-Holst...

Under The Roof-Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 January 1901

lluder The Roof-Tree. ' From grave to gay — from lively to severe.' (By Deborah.) A movement has been set on foot in South Africa by tho ' Guild of Loyal Women ' for the purpose of preserving and decorating the graves of soldiers who have fallen in the campaign. Many men who have lost their lives for the Empire are not only without friends in S. Africa, but neither re latives nor connections can be dis covered, who are personally interested in their fall. On June 14, 1809, the fourth son of the fourth Earl of Albemarle was born. Three weeks later he occupied his coffin, the back garden being the spot chosen for the contemplated inter ment, as he was not considered entitled to a grave in consecrated ground. But the old nurse, fancying there was life in the ' small thing ' after all, rescued him from premature burial just as the funeral proceedings had reached the final screwing-down stage. That was ninety-one years ago. The almost lifeless 'small thing' whose sepulchre1 was thus happ...

The Decline of Protection in Victoria. THE FINAL REVISION OF THE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 January 1901

The Decline of Protection in Victoria. THE FINAL REVISION OF THE TARIFF. To give any adequate report of the debates in the Victorian Parliament which followed the Tariff Board's recommendations is quite out of the question, extending as they do over some 2700 columns of Hausard, and if we could boil them down the result would not be very interesting. The debate, taken as a whole, with all its admissions of failure in the past, its demands for aggressive duties against sister colonies, its proof of the constant disturbance of trade conditions make a picture which warn us to keep the Commonwealth clear of such disastrous fiscal laws as have marked Victorian legislation for years past. We content ourselves with taking a few extracts from the debates which will help to enlighten our judgment as to what ' the creature protection ' (to quote Sir Henry Parkes) really is. The proposals for revision were introduced by Mr. Best, the Victorian Minister for Trade and Customs. We find him sa3'in...

The Weather and the Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 January 1901

The Weather and (he Crops. Though the season has not been all j that could be desired in many respects, j it shows considerable improvement as , compared with its predecessor. The' number of lambs marked at the winter lambing was some 300,000 greater I than that of the corresponding season ? of last year, although the number of ewes was smaller by 70,000. The per centage was Ooi per cent., as against 48), per cent, last year, and the aver age for the whole year was 65i per cent, as against 451} per cent, last year. Returns, however, will have to be even more favourable than this before the flocks of New South Wales can begin to assume anything like their former proportions. The num ber of_ sheep now in the colony is estimated at 39,091,000, against 36,213,500 at the beginning of the year. Such heavy drafts are made upon the flocks of the colony for the supply of mutton, not only for local consumption, but also for export, that it will he impossible for them to iu .creaso largely unl...
