TO THE EDITOR. ' ' '.'ffis Sir.—Kindly permit me space in your*' *Msl japer to complain of the unjust way in '|i'sSs tfhioh the ranger is permitted to carry on bis -'£% i *ork. On February Bib I had occasion to ', W jut two cows out on the road to bring home i rora Mr Kay's. I left them there for fiW* ,M£ ntautes at the outside, the reaeonforso ./Jh'j ioing I explained in oourt. No sooner had j|&, % * , • t put them out than the ranges came along nd took them. This is the first time I have J-r-S \ ver had Ptcd; on the road, even when given jl "f V* iermission from the chairman of the Joußoil to ask the ranger not|to take owe while all my ienoes were down durilwife ac making of the Flat road.
