They have no fixed place of abode, but aettle them selves down to sleep in any sheltered spot that chanoo may throw in their way. Like other harmless vagabonds that de light in fresh air, they are ever in danger of beiug pounced upon and made't,o suffer for their vagaries. It is when resting on their "forma" that weasles, polecats, and other four-legged police Bteal upon them unawares. On account of their acute sense of hearing and length of leg they are quite a match for any of their natural enemies in the open. Even the wily fox gives in when pubb layB her ears well down and goes for all she is worth. But when they fancy themselves secure their policy is to lie close. When covered by a thick coating of fresh fallen snow they may be almost trodden on before they make a move. But other wise they are continually on the alert. Being the most helpless of animals, and consequently the most favourite prey ...

Freed from endless worldly strife. •. Mourn not friends for him departed, Though thy grief may seem a load,: Since our friend has simply started, ■■■■;, ■Onward to his new abode.

Ere it quickly came along. &lt;-&lt;;• Nothing in this world could save him, Though the best of skill was tried, v Thus our manly,: kind,, and true Jim, Slowly breathed his last and died.

Intel ligent foreigners who have observed us closely have declared that we are the rudest and the kindest people in the world.

Y.R.C. Autumn Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 February 1898
Y.R.C. Autumn Meeting. The above club will commence their four days' racing this afternoon. The principal event is the Newmarket Handicap, Australia's great sprint race. Ever since the betting opened in real earnest Amiable has held pride of place, in fact some people went so far as to call it the Amiable Stakes. However,- the St. Alban's horso Reso lute, through his recent good deeds, has placed quite-a differont complexion on the state of affairs, displacing Amiable in the betting market. Loch Mario will run .well, but I like her stable companion Strathroy much better,. Strathroy is by-Lochiel out of that good mare Marvellette, so if breeding goes for anything he is not wanting. Ayrshire, the top weight, I will,dismiss,.and I do not think Am berite is quite himself. Paul Pry and Lieutenant I do not give much chance. Amiable will be hard to boat, but I fancy the last half furlongs will find her out. Olaf was served up as good goods for the Qakleigh Plate, but did not finish in the ...

Associated with that poitfolio is.that of Labor. The occupant who holds such; a dual position ought therefore to be:.a fairly: intelligent person, one capable of putting two and. two together and of ascertaining without great labor' the true inwardness of things. In. an evil moment, however, Mr. Garrard aban doned the beaten and familiar path; of politics andvlistened to the voice of an American who arrived from the other side-with the latest notion in cheap illuminants and motive force. The Transpacific /stranger and his com panions talked learnedly of cbnbustion being carried on by the decompositions of the atmospheric air, , and illustrated his invention by nieans of chemical formulas.
