MORE DACHSHUNDS

A few weeks ago Mr. H. M. Campbell, of Hawke’s Bay, brought from England a dachshund, a breed of dog rarely seen in New Zealand. Three more of these dogs arrived by the Rotorua from England on Friday. Of the long-haired Austrian variety, they were brought out for Lady Wavertree, who arrived here some months ago and is at present in Rotorua.

DOGS POISONED

Settlers and drovers in the Maharahara and Woodville districts recently have lost valuable sheep dogs through poison having been laid on their properties and roads. The matter is being investigated by the Dannevirke and Woodville police.

CAMPAIGN AT NAPIER

EXAMINING DAIRY HERDS

A campaign aimed at ensuring a pure milk supply for Napier was inaugurated on Thursday with the coming into force of the Napier Borough Council’s recent by-law, which requires the tuberculin testing of dairy herds from which Napier’s milk supply is drawn.

Eight herds is the maximum number which can be dealt with at one time, and the testing will continue at the rate of eight every two days until the entire programme is completed. Of the 32 vendors supplying milk to customers in Napier, approximately 20 have registered in conformity with the requirements of the new milk by-laws.
