His father, who had made a fortune as a scrivener, was fond of music, books, and literature, and his son was carefully educated at St. Paul's School. Milton relates that he frequently studied in the house in Bread-street until after midnight, and his head ached and his sight gaew dim with these late vigils. He was then about twelve years old. When he ' was six years old he may have seen Shakespeare and Ben Jonson pass on their way to the Mermaid Tavern, -which was in Bread-street, not far from his father's house. He was one of the best scholars at S...

KOOJ.UKGA. Apbil 13. We have been favored with a change in tbe weather. Yesterday there was a heavy wind blewingfrom the north-west all day, accom panied by clouds of dust. We all thought we were going to have a good downpour, but were disappointed. Early this morniog a ligbt ehowerfell, which relieved us of the dUBt, and during the day a few more light showers fell. jDst now, as nearly every one is out of water, aud scores of teams may be seen going to the Broughton. Many farmers have to keep one team of five horEes continually carting water. There are b till strong iedicationsof more rain. — Steps are being taken to have this township put under the Police Act, and not bafsre it was wanted. At present there are no lees than five dead bones lying in a blind creek not above a quarter of a mile from the township, and some* times the stench ia unbearable. I think it is time something was done in tbe matter.— The Bev. W. Wilson hat thought fit to leave the Presbyterians and has accepted...

GLADSTONE. APRIL 12. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
GLADSTONE. Apeil 12. There has probably been as much excitement tereoTer the Bnrra elections as in some of the polling places in that district, and the utmost MtODiihjnent and profound regret is expressed at the result. — Week after week psaies, and still there is no ohange in the weather, save the extremely cold nights. The question of a water sepply Is being seriously considered, and it is said the Government will be asked to allow tae residents to use the water now locked np in tha tasks at the gaol. I do not know what quan tity of water there is there, but judging from the time they hare been finished, and the amount of raia we hare had linoe, the water they contain would be very acseptableto a large number of residents who are in doubt as to where they are to get tba next drink from. Yesterday the weather was very boisterous all day, with clouds af dost, and we fully expected a change at nightfall, knt again were disap pointed. This dry weather will prove a great hindrance to m...
FRANKLIN HARBOR, APRIL 11. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
FRANKLIN HARBOR, Apeil 11, The recect heavy thunderstorm which occurred here, when nearly four inches of rain fell, has proved valuable in filliag the tanks and water holes, and also ui making thejlaBd soft, so that ploughing is being curried on in full swing. Tha rain has also had the effect of starting the grass, and at this time of the year we may reasonably look for further showers. We regret that in eonosquenoe of the very heavy flow of wat«r in thA erefikH trta vn&in road fa fcha harbor has been much damaged. Traffic is stopped at present, and until proper oal verts are made nothing is t» prevent a similar occurrence by every flood that comes. We trust the Surveyor-General will have these culrerts made. — Ws are patiently waiting to see the jetty commenced, but up to the present tenders are not even called. — There is some talk about forming a company to pur chase a steamer to trade between this place and Wallaroo twice a week.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. After another spell of dry weather, some most welcome showers have fallen, and at the time of writing there seems every like lihood of a copious downpour before long. This is much needed to fill tankB and wsterholeB, to start the seed already sown, and to soften the ground for ploughing. TVrnn Vintorift wa Yioaf tfiat tli« tjmtic save enabled the necessary tillage for the cereal crops to be pushed forward, as well as permitted the the preliminary cultivation to be gone on with, for root crops. By tele- . gram from Sydney advices have been re ceived of no less than4A inches of rainhaving fallen between Saturday and Monday last, and the downfall appears to have been pretty general throughout the colony. The reports fiom Queensland are of a varied character.

REPORT ON THE BOTANIC GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
REPORT ON THE BOTANIC GARDENS. The annual report from Dr. Schomburgk, the directorof the Botanic GardenE, has been published in the Government Gazette. The document, which is of considerable length, is more interesting than usual, and contains a large amount of -valuable information for those engaged in agricultural pursuits. As is troll known Dr. Schomburgk has been experimenting largely in the growing of ?wheat, but the season has been a very un favorable one, the wheat suffering severely frcm the frosts which occurred while the plants were in bloom and also from red rust, The returns were conseq uently far belo «v the average, scarcely reaching sis bushels ?per sere. Jn fact last season was one of the worst our farming community has had to contend against. Lengthy reference is rrade to the 'Defiance' and 'Cham- plain' -wheats, to the qualities each possesses, and the experiments that have been and are nosr btinjr made to test their rust-resistinc capabilities.

SHE MANAGEMENT OF BROOD SOWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
IHE MANAGEMENT OF BROOD SOWS. A brood eow should bs a good milker. An abundance of milk for the first eight or ten weeks of their existence ia the best pre paration young pigs can have to fit them for profitable growth in after life. It is not alwayspossible (says an American writer) to decide with certainty whether or not a yonng bow will prove to be a good milker ; dot as witn cows, bo witn pigs, we may learn from observation and trial to know in some degree, judging from their general appearance, what to expect. Milking qualities in swine are as surely trans mis8able to progeny as in cattle. Thus it is as true of swine as of cattle that this trait may be greatly improved by retaining only good, milkers for bleeders. When they have dropped theirfirst litter, the most they -will need for tiie first five or eight days will be cooling drinks and very little rich food. Wheat bran, scalded and than tnonnedwitbcold water, to which may be added a handful of middlings, may be given. In te...

CRTSTAL BROOK, Apbec 8. Great excitement prevailed in this township on Saturday when it was known that a match for £6 a side was to take place between two local horses, and that another local horse wat to trot against time aleo for wager. Long before the hour appointed, 4.30 pjn., crowds could be seen approaching the appointed spot, and excite ment was at its height when the hones for the Conner came in sigBt, reaay siaaiea ana im patient for the, fray. Tha horses being well known there were plenty of friends found on tha grousd to support them, so that when the flag fall both were backed nearly equal, although Mr. W. Steer's mare Black Bess was slightly the favorite, and showed that the confidence placed in her was not in vain, as she carried off the honors as she pleased. Then came the trot, and in consequence of the judges not being able to find the exact mile on our road they had ts seek another, which being sandy was rather heavy, and interfered with what chance the horse had o...
