Houdans. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 March 1898

HoiMlaiis. Whenever table poultry and eggs are spoken or written of as the properties of any one variety, Houdans are the breed selected. That they have such attributes in France has been proved over and over again. The modern Houdan however of tho English show-pen has Bhown itself a verv moderate layer, the table qualities have in no way suffered, while the com petitive system has done much to increase the size. Houdans aro the best known and moBt general of the French varieties in Australia, their striking resembbmee in shape and superior quality and fineness of fleBh have earned for them tho appella tion of French Dorkings ; they have small bones, largo square bodies set on short Ieg3, the long breast bono showing great meat capabilities. They lay a largo white egg, but in this counti-j' at leaBt do not justify their character as to numbers. The demands of the. show-pen system for excessive crests, etc., has had an effect for ill which has been noted by all the practical poultry ...

THROUGH A TELESCOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 March 1898

THROUGH A TELESCOPE. i. The clear crisp winter day was very pleasant, but I could not enjoy it. I was forbidden to rise from my bed, and yet, in the absence of any one who could pre vent my doing so, I was determined to open the window and breathe iu the fresh air. I wrapped myself in a worm dres-ing-gown opening the window only a few inches. I looked down unon thn oroun of ladies who were on the lawn. My cousin, Jenny Magn-ir, was there, the woman I loved. Hut I was nothing to her. She was the betrothed of Gtrall Macbiirn. How I envied him, and, perhaps, huted him a little, for I knew Hint he hnd not won her love. There was a fine telescope lying on the table, and I diveited my thoughts by taking a survey of the farming and woodland that stretched far away to the east for miiny miles. But suddenly I caught sight of two men, whom 1 recognised as Geraid Macburn and John Layton. They were apparently in sesrch of game. I saw them stop, and I became aware by their motions that they were...

THIS FIRST SEWING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 March 1898

THE FIRST SEWING MACHINE. Those who believe that Elias Howe was the original inventor of tho sewing machine are as badly mistaken as are those who think that Morse was the originator of eh ctric telegraphy. Thft first sewii-g machiuu dates back to 1770, when one I'obirt Alsop, of England, wan granted a patent for an embroidery lu-om that worked on almost the same principle that Howe's original sewing machine did. A few years later, in 1790, the English Patent Oflice granted Thomas -Saint a patent for a machine ' designed and intended for quillini;, stitching, &c.' The very lirst practical sewing machines were those made in Paris in 1830 by B. Tliimonier. In the year 1840, suvi'.n years before Howe's original sewing machine idea struck him, 80 Tbimouier machine!:, which weie being operated in the Government shop.-s of Paris, engaged in making clothing for the army, were, destroyed by a mob of workmen I tailors) because they were taking the place of baud worktrn.

' None of the family are dead ; none of them are sick, and uo relatives have passed away,' explained the waiter. ' There ain't ! ' ejaculated the man, turning fiercely around, and pointing to the tablecloth, ' then why in thunder don't you tako iu your mourning goods. That tablecloth is black enough for a funeral pall.'

NARRATIVES OF THE BUSHRAMIM TIMES [Copyright.] A True Story of Macquarie Harbour. BY CAPTAIN- LACIE. IN SEVEN PARTS. PERIOD, 1848. PART II. ?Now comes the strange part of the narrative,' continued Solomon 'Three of them stated that almost immediately the report of the shot resounded they saw Hans Doirc making away through the scrub with a pistol in his right hand. There could be no doubt if the story they told was true that he was the assassin, but soon after the vessel touched at liobart 1 own, one of the men during a spree began to say words which threw grave doubts on the statement of the murder — for Bernier died the day after the vessel left the harbour. That was the day following his return to the ship. ' This man in Hobart Town when under the influence of drink said the men conspired to kill the lieutenant, and the)' decided that the scapegoat should be Mans Done. From what could be gathered, the latter must have overheard the diabolical plot just before it was carried into e...

Feeding of Working Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898

Feeding of Working Horses. In Fiji the Colonial Sugar Refining Company have about 1,000 head of farm horses which, until a few years ago, were fed chiefly on oats and maize, with some green cane tops in addi tion. But this did not prove satisfactory in the trying tropical climate ; sickness was frequent and tho death-rate high, while tho charge for fodder was very heavy. As large quantities of waste molasses were available, ib was thought well to investigate whether the sutjar in this material might nob be advantageously used as a substitute for some of tho starch in the ordinary food. When these trials were commenced care was taken to begin with only small quantities of the new fodder lest the high proportion of salta should prove too laxative. Horses unaccus tomed to sugar do not like it at first, but tha sweet taste is soon acquired, after which they will eat it, in preference to any other food. With the growing appetite for it the proportion of molasses was gradually increased t...

At the last committee meeting — my informant is a com mitteeman— three tonders ior groceries, &c, were opened, and one was accepted. The successful tenderer's prices wore much higher than tho two others, and although the three firms are woll-known and respectable business peoplojstill tho committee showed partiality and accepted the highest tonder for hospital sup plies ! Now, Sir, it looks as if any firm or per son in Maclean not in tow with a certain sec tion cannot get fair play in connection with our public institution, I have been reliably informed that Btops will soon be taken by a largo number of tho genuine subscribers to the hospital to hold a monster indignation meeting as a protest against the prejudical methods adopted by t...
