There was only one case heard by the li.M. to-day—an xinimportant civil one m which judgment went for plaintiff by default.A Wellington telegram received just before going to press says the Report and Debates Committee commenced to revise Hutchison's speech this morning, and so far as they have gone, they have found that the corrections made have been perfectly legitimate. Before Mr G. W. Rees, J.P., yesterday, John Kemp, remanded from the previous sitting on a charge of drunkenness, was ordered to pay 15s medical expenses, and 7s 6d police expenses, or m default to go to prison for seven days. Two weeks were allowed for payment of the money. The wasteful practice of burning straw to get rid of it does not prevail to the extent it did some years ago (says an exchange), but should cease altogether, and this product be utilised for all it is worth. As its feeding value is about three-quart ers that of hay, ■ it would be almost as reasonable to burn the latter. A few years ago m the Old Country rather green corn fodder was packed m alternate layers with straw. The fodder kept well, and imparted a portion of its aroma to the straw, and stock ate the latter ' with as much avidity as the former. Similar 1 recent experiments m preserving green alfalfa (lucerne) were abundantly successful, and cattle relished both equally well. As j haying occurs before harvesting and threshing, it is suggested that those who have been m the habit of burning their straw stack it nicely, and the following year use it m preserving green hay of any kind. Green clover thus put up would be preserved m its entirety, instead of losing much of its nutriment by being cured m a burning sun, for unless great care is qbserved it is permitted to become so dry that the best part (the leaves) shells of!', and is wasted. This dry silage system would utilise every article of nutriment m both straw and clover. It will be m the recollection of the public that my collection of apples shown m Mr Clayton's shop m East street, being sixty-six varieties, and also those which took tw ro first awards at the Dunedin Exhibition and various other places, was pronounced to be the largest anil best ever shown m the Ashburton county, I would draw their* attention m advertisement elsewhere. As only work on blight-proof stocks than Avhich no other stocks can be relied upon, the roots p my apple trees do not require to be washed efore sending out.
