Pursuant to a motion which Mr. Griffiths had carried in the House of   Assembly, the Minister for the Territ- ory arranged to have drugs and scales sent up for the special benefit of the country folk. Three came to hand

lately and Mr. Kell (Burrundie) and Mr. J. Kelsey (Pine Creek) have been supplied with collections of the drugs most likely to be wanted. In urging his poînt Mr. Griffiths instanced the case of Olive Masters, and quoted from the Times and from private letters.

We learn from Mr. Holtze, Inspec- tor under the Vine, &c., Diseases Act,   that in future all oranges and lemons before being issued from the goods shed will be treated by immersion in sea water for 48 hours to kill possible germs of scale ! This dipping process   should have the desired effect on any microbe that might be attempting to smuggle itself ashore for the purpose of bringing disaster upon our orange and lemon groves of the future. It should also have the effect of stopping all further imports of these wholesome fruits, for it is asking too much of us to expect that we will appreciate   them after they have passed two days in salt water. Usually a big percent- age the imported fruit arrives here in defective condition, and the "corn- ing "' proceess is not likely to improve matters from the consumer's point of view. We cannot be far wrong then

in assuming that the imports of lemons and oranges will at once cease. The notification apparently only applies to the two fruits named, apples, pears, peaches, and so forth, being exempted no doubt for the reason that they   cannot be cultivated in our tropical latitudes. If we must declare war to the knife against scale germs, would it not serve the purpose equally well if the fruit was subjected to fumigation in the ordinary way.

Dr. Browne, who died the other day in England, was one of the first to   take up stock runs in the Northern   Territory. He made simply nothing out of his enterprise, and gradually withdrew his interests, either by sale or abandonment. Springvale and Delamere were originally among his leases. His first expedition came  

overland in 1879-80. Mr. A. T.

Woods, the financial manager, came on ahead with picked horses and arrived in the Territory about the end of 1879, and the other parties came on at inter- vals dering 1880. The expedition ar- rived with about 6000 head of cattle, including a score or so of bulls ; about 300 horses, including 3 entires; and 8000 sheep, "The sheep were started from Leigh's Creek and arrived north about 6000 short, all the rams, sin- gular to say, being amongst the losses ; in feet, all the mobs of stock were

dismaally thinned from the original ones that started. The cattle and sheep were cut up into small mobs for convenience of travelling, with inter- vals of months between starting in some cases ; and from first to last the time occupied coming over was 15 months. The leader of the whole was Mr. Alfred Giles, who was sometimes with one party and sometimes with another, but chiefly with the sheep as    

requiring most supervision. Other

members of the party were Mr. Arthur Giles, Mr. H. Pinder, Messrs. Hart, Needham, C. Lees, Martin, and T. Pearce and others whose names we have not not to hand. Dr. Browne had secured a large tract of country in 500 square mile alternate blocks along

what was believed to be the course of   the Katherine River. At that time the.Katherine was thought to run into the -Fitzmaurice. The first station   was formed at Springvale, and subse- quently operations were extended to Delamere and Price's Creek. Dr.

Browne's pastoral plunge, here, is said   to have cost him £80,000, and the results were so opposite to what he     anticipated that he gradually withdrew his interests from the far north by the             gradual abandonment of his station         properties.
