An Object Lesson.
Mr P. Malaghan, a Queenstown photographer, has taken a picture of a shag trying to swallow a trout 18in long, showing the fish, after filling the stomach of the shag, protruding inches beyond the shag's beak.

Here is an object lesson to our political shags at Wellington, who, after swallowing a £40 advance in their wages - not of sin - one year, did not hesitate to strain at £60 another. But their swallow was equal to the strain, the query being, How much would choke them? To have acted logically they should have taken their case before the Arbitration Court for adjudication.
