Sporting Notes and Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

1 Sporting Motes and Notions, [By the Vagrant.] Speaking of a recent victory achieved by tho Australian horse Stromboli at San Francisco, an J American, sporting journal says : — ' Stromboli clinched his claims to the coast championship this afternoon by winning easily at a mile from sueh good ones as Nomad, Glee Boy, Sir Reel, and Pes cador. The big brown Australian horse got away a couple of lengths behind the bunch, and loafed in the rear until reaching the homo-stretch, where Morris let go his wrap. The style in which Stromboli went by Pescador (who had been leading by quite a margin), Sir Reel, and the others will not be forgotten soon by those who saw it. From fifth and last place at the turn into the straight he was first in the next sixteenth of a mile, and coming like a shot with those long, sweeping, deceptive strides, the brother to Volcano won exceedingly easy by two lengths from Sir Reel in the cracking good time of 1 min. HJsec. Stromboli was timed separately in lmin U...

LOCAL raws. A Twelve-page 'Weekly Mercury.' — Good Friday having occurred in the present week, we print a smaller paper than usual — a twelve-page instead of a sixteen-page Weekly Mercury. The Custody op Children, &c. — The Act to amend the Law relating totha Custody of Children, and to provide for settlements for the benefit of children in certain cases, which was assented on March 11, gives power to the Supreme Court to refuse to issue a writ or to make an order for the production of a child if it be of opinion that the parent asking for the writ or order has abandoned, neglected, or deserted the child, or has so conducted himself that the Court should refuse to enforce his right to the recovery of the child, or that the tender age of the child ot- the state of its health render it expedient that the child should remain with its mother or some other person. Should the Court however order a cniid to t-e given up to tne applicant parent, it may also make an order for the pay...

THE GREATEST HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

T1IE R11EATEST HAPPINESS. How lit tle the human mind is. able to graRp and retaiD, after ali. So called 'groat minds' are really those which gire, rather than receive. But to give, one must first receive, and tho greatness comes, in reality, through j a capacity to receive- aud retain know ledge or oower. A monarch may appear i great in the eyes of the world ; but I his mind may be as small, warped, and perverted as that of a South Sea Islander, and his greatness may be alone in name. The man or woman who serves you in the most memB.l and common things of life may 'have the mind of a master, but because of the lack o£ proper cultivation its richness and beauty may perhaps never be known to the world. 'j.o think properly is an art which few men have ever mastered. To combine one's thought and work to certain individual lines and channels will in course of time warp and narrow the mind ; but still there are many examples in which the world has been bene fitted by just such narrowness....

BO QUALITY SO USEFUL AS DISCRETION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

no QUAirrr so useful as uisciietion. V* There are; many shining cfualities in the Sri mind of man ; but none so useful as discretion. It is this which gives a value to % t all the reBt, and sets them at work in their proper places, and turns them to the advantage of their possessor. 'Without it, learning is pedantry ;, wit, impertinence ; virtue itself lcokslike weakness, and toe best parts only qualify a man to be more sprightly in errorB, , and active in his own prejud'se. Though a - man has all other perfections aud wants dis ci etion, he will be of no greet consequence ?— in this world; but if he has this single talent in perfection, and but a common share of others, he may do what he pleases in hie station of life. — Addison.

STARTING A POULTRY FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

STAUT?N'G A POULTfli.' PA KM. A correspondent, writing to an exchange, says Poultry is kept principally for two purposes — thnt of furnishing table fowls end supplying eggs. Some varieties are beBt for one purpose and some for the other. Some varieties are what might be termed general purpose fowls, combining both qualities. It will be well, then, for a beginner to first decide what he wishes to produce, aud select breeds beBt adapted for his requirements. uiiikooou-uu iu jjuuitry ruiiuug nna poultry journalism has run so high breeders of par ticular varieties have become so enthusiastic as to claim every good quality imaginable for their particular favourites. Every sensible person, however, should know that no one breed can excel in all characteristics. Some of tbe best layers are non-setters and some of the heaviest table fowls are indifferent layers, and so on. In my many years' ex perience with the different varieties, I might affirm that they will all pay haudnorae profitH if ...

Farm and Garden. THE TREATMENT OF WINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

Farm and G-arden. TDE TREATMENT OP WINES. Speaking with a wine buyer recently — an expert in hie branch, in tbe best sense of the term — be made a remark (says a writer in Rural Austmlian) concerning our treatment of young winee, with which I could not but agree, although itwa» severe upon ub growerB. Tbe drift of it was that we aeem to think that all we require in order to have saleable wine is to ' give it body,' or make it strong enough. Adding, ' Bat I really do not buy for strength, or in other words, for the alcoholic contents. As wine dealers, we require flavor, tbe etherial properties of wine. G-ive us that, ard the actnal ' strength,' in tha senBe of spirit, goes for littis. I am prepared ot this moment to buy the wines I want to any extent. It is not at all plentiful, but I can get any quantity with all the spirit the most exacting might require.' A good deal more than the foregoing passed between my expert friend and myself, and, as he is quite aware, I send notes for pub...

Literary News, Notes, etc. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

liiterary News, Notes, etc. In the Cambridge Review an illustration is given of the late Dean Merivale's readiness of reply. The Dean was discussing the relative merits ot Essex and his own county (Devon) with the Rev. F. B, Zincke, an eastern counties man._ The latter summed up his case for Essex by saying, as Sydney Smith had done for him, that the wise men came from 'the EaBt.' 'Well,' replied Merivale, 'surely it was the wisest thing they could do !' Notice is taken in several of the reviews of tho ~e i\r,. flirt mnaf ror»onf. candidate for fume. One portrait shows him to have the face of the ' evangelical' type of young man with a heard. He writes both good and bad verse, the bad verse is a sparkle of words without definite meaning. The poet is addictcd to using unwieldy and out-of-the-way verbiage. In the mechanism of his verse he sometimes imitates, and one piece is a dead copy of the manner of Mr. Coventry Patmore, Hero is a sample of his good verse. Yet I hav« felt what ter...

Braven Black started. ' She has ascepted you ?' he demanded. 'Not yet She wants to think the matter over, and I have consented to to let the thing rest where it' is for a week. I take it ais a good sign that she did not refuse me at once. Her hesitation implies a re gard for me — ' 'Or a sense of duty towards some one else,' muttered Craven Black. 'Curse that letter! If I had seen the girl, I would never have written it.' ' What is it you say, father ? I did not catch your words.' ' They are not ment for your ears. So Miss Wynde demands a week in which to consider your offer ? It would be proper for you to refain from g...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

GENERAL NEWS. The Victorian police intend to hold a monster meeting next Wednesday to protest against being reduced to half-pay while on sick leave. Evidence in tho divorce case of Osliden v. Osliden, heard in Sydney on Friday, disclosed an almost incredible state of things. Petitioner, Mary Ellen Osliden, it will be remembered, sued for a diTorce from her husband, Helga Thorstenson Osliden, on tho grounds of adultery and cruelty, aud respondent sought a like consummation on the cross issue of petititioner's adul tery with one Arnold, who was named as co respondent. Respondent, an elderly Norwegian, has apparently proved that in his case, at least, marriage is an unmistakeable feilurc, and he probably will in future propose to take one another's word for it. He had been wedded twice previously and one of his brides died whilst he had been divorced from the sceond, and now hit, third essay in the lottery of matrimony has left him forlorn. The co-respondent Arnold was slid to be about...
