FRESH WATER FISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
FRESfl WATER FISH. Mn. ALBERT GALE, in an article in the "Agricultural Gazette" in referring to the Murray cod and its culture, says:-" The Murray cod bears transportation well and will aeon adapt itself to its new home. Many years.ago the late Rir Terence Aubrey Murray introduced this fish from the tribu taries of the Queanbeyan River to Lake George. In a few years the lake and creeks, emptying themselves therein, were fairly well stocked with cod. The people living near this fake soon had their larders well stored with these fish which was a decided change from the'everlasting mutton. From Lake George some of the decendants of the fish that were introduced there were carried to ,he waters of the Wollondilly River and the Mulwarree Ponds near Goulburn. The Wollondilly River is the name given to the upper portion of the Hawkesbnry River, and there is nothing, therefore, to prevent the Murry cod from becoming an inhabitant of fresh waters of the last-nanied river and its tributaries....

Barnett), in his charge to the jury, said it-must have been kept back by somebody, which if it had been presented to the :Court would probably have quickly elucidated the whole. mystery in this case. The jury found that Winifred Pounceby met her death by a shot fired by Joseph Walker, who afterwards shot himsef. They also found that the two deceased had agreed to die.together.
Pastures Protection Board. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 14 June 1904
Pastures Protection Board, THE poll for the election of three directors forthe Pastures Protection Board, vice Messrs MoOarthy, Moore, and McKeahnie, closed last Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock, resulting in the return of the three retiring gentlemen. The voting was as follows: MoOarthy, James, 173. Moore, Richard, 167. Molleahnie, 0. H., .122. Brassey, Arthur, 104. Southwell, Richard, 87. Gibbs, N. H., 83. Southwell, Mark, 74. The result is a manifestation of the satis* fiction given to stookowners of the district by the first Board of Directors. Even in oases where it might be deemed advisable to create a change in the discharging of the dutes appertaining to a Board it is better to trust to those who have manipulated it in their best capacity to bring that change about. There is no doubt that the four rejected candidates would have made able Directors for the Board, having a practical experience of the requirements of the stock. owner and a comprehensive knowledge of the provisions...

Barbara was so much distressed about her brobier that she never thought of opening the morning paper, which was always letched from the station at Old Hoo by the groom. The young Soarles however, who saw everythins, and who had noted the doctor's carringo on its way to and from Haylo Sands read something in the paper which they thought might have a peculiar interest for Sir Hubert's household, and immediately luncheon was over they started off with a copy of the STANDAID to make inquiries. When the housemaid told them that Sir H1ibert was ill in bed each uttered a plan. tive exclamation, and they asked if they could see Miss Barbara. The housemaid thought they could, and showed them into the drawing-room, where Barbara, unhappy and disconsolate, was having a little cry all by herself. The maid drew back in consternation when she discovered this, but she was not quick enough to stop Bobbie and Billi...

WILD CATTLE FLAT. AUSTIN CHAPMAN has received the following letter from the Secretary to Postmaster General :- I have the honor to intimate that an application was made by Messrs. W. Davis Wright, G. Archbold, William A. Gibson, and other selectors and farmers of Wild Cattle Flat, for that place to be served by means of deviations in the routes of the existing weekly mail services between Bredbo and Ballalaba, and Captain's Flat, and Jerangle, but it is not considered advisable to adopt such a course.

PLOUGH TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
. PLOU'GH TRIAL. YasTERDAYtafternoon Mr. R. V. Thompson, the representative bf Mr. Charles "Toturnier, of Sydney, gave a practical exhibition of a three furrow expanding disc plough in a paddock near Mr. Byrne's mill. The imple ment was worked by four small farm horses turning sods l4 inches wide by 12 inches deep, and appeared to walk along quite liesurely. As an instance of the stability of the plough and as a thorough test of its adaptability to the hard dry lands of Austra. lia we may mention that Mr. Thompson, by * the request of our reporter, obtained per mission from the Mayor to take the plough onto virgin soil, the result being highly satisfactory to the practical farmers present. Also, on a hard road the plough did not refuse to do its work in a similar manner to that of a moulboard plough in old land. With the 24 inch discs, with which she is fitted, the subsoil is turned half way up the slope of the furrow, thus making a perfect seed bed, and dispensing with the use of t...
