"Looks A1," The Maluka Said, Alluding To The Stiff, Aggressive Frock, And Took Me "Bush" With Him, Wearing The Blouse, And A Holland Riding Skirt That Had Also Proved Itself A True, Staunch Friend.

Cattle, and cattle only, would be the work of the "Dry." Dan and the Quiet Stockman, with a dozen or so of cattle "boys" to help them, had the year's musterings and brandings to get through; the Dandy would be wherever he was most needed; yard-building, yard-repairing, carting stores or lending a hand with mustering when necessity arose, while the Maluka would be everywhere at once, in organisation if not in body.
