AN ABUNDANCE OF FOODSTUFFS.
It is comforting to know that there is an abundance of foodstuffs on board,so that should the Waratah have broken down and be quite helpless, thereis no danger of those on board beingput on short rations, even if their detention extends over a very, long period. Altogether she carries between 2000 and 3000 tons of foodstuffs comprising butter, cheese, rabbits, mutton, and other commodities and as long asthe crew are able to keep her abovewater nothing worse than an undulylengthened holiday at sea will eventuate. .
