EXPORTATION OF OSTRICHES
This was a very important resolution, in which we are all interested, more so in the Eastern and South Western districts, an industry which we are very jealous of, and trust the Gonernment will assist us by passing an Act which will make it impossible for an ostrich or its egg, to be exported into any Colony. It was reported that the Agricultural Department had every loophole with the exception of the German territory stopped. This Act was carried unanimously.

EDUCATION
A resolution was brought forward by Mr Charles Lee, strongly recommending Government to consider the introduction of Nature study in schools, as part of their education. This was a very important resolution, more so for those who are going in for farming.

TICKS
It was moved that the time had now arrived when Government should make investigation with regard to the importance of dipping for ticks, with a view to early legislation. After a very long discussion it was carried unanimously and very rightly too.
