We'l where shall I begin ? First'of all I would suggest that grass fed and c 'rn fed horses be not classified together, liy this I mean that comfeds and grassfeds should not compete against each other in the hackney classes. For instance I would not have grass fed horses competing against quiet, town, well-conditioned half-racehorscs ia the best ll, 12, 13, or 14 stone classes. It is not fair to tho grass-fed's owner, who has brought his horse a long di.-tance at much tioub'e and expensu to have him put in the ring against conditioned corn-feds. The ¡alter jo;; along quietly in the presence of all sorts of sights new to tho grass-fed lmHC, «id the Judges are bound t'i award the prize to condition. Make the distinction I suggest and you...

"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Thursday Morning, Nov. 11, 1897. DEEDS, NOT WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 11 November 1897
" MORNING POST." ^'Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone/' ? Ttariiw Homing, Vev- ll, 1887 DEEDS, NOT WORDS. In a southern paper occurs a passa which forms a good text for a semi upon thc subject of "deeds- t words." The passage is as follows : " I see that a number of the country pap have been noticing the fact that the Rom Shire Council, at its last meeting, passe vote of thanks to the Romsey Examiner the fair and impartial reports of the meetii of that body during the year. No doub comes very much in thc nature of a surpi to the average shire councillor (o find tl any ctedit should be given to a newspaj for the continuous labor in advertising (fr the district and its institutions ; and yet I reporter often deserves thanks, not only reporting what is said and done but also reporting what should be said, and suppress a great deal of what is actually said.

TU QUOQUE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 11 November 1897
TU QUOQUE. In a late issue of the Cairn Advocate, the evening organ of th&lt; local Labor Party, edite J by M Thomas Givens, the twice defeatec but still hopeful candidate for Legis lative honors, the Morning Post v. seriously taken to task for having mis1 applied the word" statutory."- Th. error crept into a report of the Muni I cipal Council proceedings and wai certainly a careless slip but perhaps t little excusable in the light of proofs being rsad at one or two o'clock ir the morning amidst the hurry'-and bustle of publication. However, ex cusable or not excusable, the errol was made, and "statuary" appeared instead of "statutory." proved by a passing feeling of curiosity we thought it well to look over the columns of om literary censor, thinking it just possible that we might luckily find om mistake. "If we can only find one," Awe thought "it will be a certain amount of satis- faction," but for all that we did not expect to find thirteen. It is really sad work contempl...
From Our Point of View. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 11 November 1897
Prom Our Point of View. LOCAL BUTCHER- T,H,ERE ARE MORE ASREE" iso MATTEKS. abIe met!l0,ls of earn , mg one's.living than butchering as carried out across the road from our office at Mr A. Keeble's well known shop. That old Northern veteran, Mr Frank Brown, is the shopman in charge, and morning after morning with the regularity of sunrise he is up and at work in the shop at 3.30 o'clock. The «asístanla. are heuled - a . little later, and there they all remain until (5 p.m.-14i hours every day. Some of tho rising generation who grumble at putting in an occasional nine hours should be turned over to the tender mercies of the butcher- ing business. Dairying is another sweet occupation-and for long hours can prob- ably give butchering points. Apropos of this it is quite on the cards that a third or even fourth firm of meat salesmen will start business in Cairns before long, no doubt attracted by the present price of 4d per lb for beef. At the last meeting of the Board, as will be notice...

MULGRAVE MILL CORRECTION. [To THF. EDITOR.] Sirrin a report of the meeting of share- holders ol the Mulgrave Central Mill, pub- lished in your paper on thc 21 st October, I noticed a letter from the manager, Mr W. G. Scott, in which he makes a statement to the effect that Mr Meyers, the late manager, in- formed him that the density of some of the cane during the last year's crushing season ranged from 10 o lo 12 o bcaume. I am very sorry, for the sake of thc mill, to say that no cane crushed during the season referred to in Mr Scott's report reached as high as 12 o bcaume, and an exceedingly small proportion went as high as IQ °- The stand-over cane was mostly rotten and the portions of it which were crushed at the latter part of thc season registered a density of only 6J beaume.

Fruit and Egg Preserving [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 11 November 1897
Fruit and Egg Preserving After several ycais' experiments Mr J. A. Parker of Argyle Street, Sydney, has sue I ceeded in making a solution which will preserve eggs, fruits such as grapes, lemons, oranges, pears, passion fruit, etc. etc , for months and permit of their being shipped as general cargo to any part of the world. The process is simplicity itself, fruit and eggs merely require dipping' iu thc solution, or it may be applied with a brush, and if ordinary care be taken success is certain. One gallon will preserve QO cases of apples, oranges, lemons, etc. etç., and eggs can bc treated at a coat ot about a farthing per dozen. Oranges preserved with this solution have been sent from Sydney to Vancouver and back, as general cargo, and, after twice passing through the tropics were landed in Sydney eleven weeks after treatment per» fectly sound. Messrs Aplin, Brown, and.- Crawshay, Ltd , Townsville are the Queensland agents Irom whom full particulars may be obtained.
