Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

'IMITATION is the SINCERESr FLATTERY.' The articles mo-;t imitated are CLEMENTS TONIC and FLETCHER'S PILLS. WHY ? BECAUSE they have the best reputation and are most iu demand by the public, consequently, every dishonest trader tries to trade on their fame and renown. It is really wonderful that the Australian people are so slow to see the truth as regards the un scrupulous quacks and charlatans who prey on the credulity of the Australian public. Scarcely a week ever passes but what the press exposes the bare faced and shameful practices of some of these har pies, yet, in face of all tliey seem to thrive, and the paper who hounds them down most thrives fattest on their advertisement and cracks champagne over each balance-sheet. Clements Tonic and Fletcher's Pills have never yet stooped to deception and mis representation. They are scientific therapeutical agents, and evidence ns to their value can be found in every district, and such being the case it is un necessary to further extol...

HARRISON, JONES, AND DEVLIN'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 March 1894

HARRISON. .rOKE-:, AND DEVI.lx's REPORT, Wool. — For our usual fortnightly sale held to-day, we brought- forward a catalogue of 444 bales. The selection of greasy wools was of a mixed and faulty, nature, and none of t'he lots were sufficiently attractive to elicit high prices. In the scoured section some very high-class examples were - on view, particularly those from tlie Queanbeyan Works, which were prepared in the usual good style, the colour and classification being faultless. Prices offered, however, hardly reached expecta tions of owners, owing to the deiiressing influences ?which are at present bearing on the trade in all quarters, and the priucipai lines were held over. The general tone of the market differed but little from that of our last auction, and values ruled on about the same level. In the face of the enormous withdrawals in the London sales which have juat closed, amounting to to, 000 bales, buyers on this sme are disposed to tics witn more t &an orainary c...

TO CURE STUMBLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 31 March 1894

TO CUBE STUSIBHNG. There are two caunes which produce stum' bhng in horses that are addicted to this habit. One ia a General weakness of the muscular system, ouch as will be noticed in a tired horBe, and the other is a weakness of the exterior miinclea of the lee, brought about by crrying too mnch weight on tho toe. To effect a cure when stumbling is induced by the latter cnusi- lighten tbe weight off each front shoe about four ounces, and hare the toe made of hard steel instead of ir^n. Hare them mad* rounding, like the shoe when it is one-third worn. G-ive the horae a week's rest and have tho lego showered with a cold spray for a few minutes two or three times a day. Rub them briskly from the chest down to the foot, and wolk the horse for an hour twice a day. When you begin driving do not jog him nlowly, but let him walk, or else drite sharply for a mile or two and then walk. Do not speed him for several weeks.

STOKING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 31 March 1894

STORING POTATOES. The common practice when digging pota toes of spreading them in the nun to dry is of questionable advantage. One thing is certain, if a potato lies for any length of time under a hot sun it gets a rank flavour which makes it unpalatable when cooked, also such potatoes are damaged for seed pur poses, as many of the eyes are rendered dor mant, and, if planted, they make an uneven stand. It has been found by many experiments tbat 'potatoes stored in pits, where they ac quire the dampness of a well drained' soil, keep better than those stored in a dry cellar. A conclusion drawn from thia is that since the natural state of the potato is to be moist therefore it should be handled bo as to keep it in the condition it is in when dug from the roil in the proper condition for working. If it becomes necessary to dig potatoes when the s.-il is so muddy it will adhere to them, tbe potatoes should by some meauB be dried off and bo handled that the adhering earth will be shaken f...

CHEMICAL AID TO HELP THE POTATO CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 31 March 1894

CHEMICAJi AID TO HEM? THE POTATO CHOP. Some time back we (Sural Australian) published the results of experiments made by a French Bcientiat, who soaked potato seed for 24 hours in a chemical solution of buI phate of ammonia and nitrate of potash prior to planting. This was said to have greatly increased the yield, and quite a good number of growers tried it, ourselves amongst the number, but, so far as we have been made aware, without any very special beneficial results. The CHarenee and Richmond Ex aminer, however, reports that Mr. D. Ander son, of Caramana, has been more successful by treating some Circular Head seed in the manner stated, with this difference that the potatoes were steeped but 12 hours instead of 24 From six bags of seed 12 tons were grown ; and potatoes planted at the same period, and in the same ground, that were not treated aB described, gave a smaller yield. The seed was planted the 1st of August, iand the crop dug at the latter end of No vember. The seed Bpro...

THE BACILLI OF ANTHRAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 31 March 1894

THE BACIIiTT OF ANTHRAX. The President of the Board of Agriculture wob questioned recently in the Houbo of Commons as to whether, considering the per sistant vitality of the bacilli of antlirax, it would not be necessary to impress on local authorities the importance of burning the bodies of animals infected with this disease. The answer was what might be expected. The burning of a whole carcase intact and without dismemberment ib a moat costly process, and if the body has to be cut up it causes the spilling of blood, and en dangers the lives of men and animals. On the other hand, as tbe microbe of anthrax cannot, it is said, exist without exposure to oxygen, and it is believed soon perishes in an unopened desd bedy, deep burial of the carcase in its unbroken skiu is deemed sufficient safeguard against the recrudescence of -.the infection at any future time. It is to bo hoped that this way of disposing of diseased carcases will prove to bo a sufficient safeguard ; but even assuming ...

A Mob Controlled. An illustrated magazine recently gave an account of a journey round the world on a bicyle, which was undertaken by u young' German from Pennsylvania. He started from New York, crossed the continent to San Prancisco, then went bv steamer to Japan, and from that country to China. When the correspondent met him he had travelled a thousand miles in Japan, and nearly a thou«and in China. Near the large cities in the latter country he was allowed to pass freely, but in the re mote provinces he and his machine were' regarded as a ' flying devil,' and he was assailed with stones and clubs. Mobs of labourers rushed from the fields and pur sned him with their hoes and spades. Twice he was Rurround&d, and bis camera, which waE' strapped to his back, was shattered. 'How did you save your life?' asked the corre»pondent. ' I made then laugh,' the German replied. I began fooling with the machine and tumb ling off of it. Then I persuaded one of their number to try the whee...

How Drouais Won. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 31 March 1894

How Drouais Won. The great reward of work accomplished is simply the having accomplished it. Bnt it is natural to beginners to think much of the price and praise which success commands. An interesting story is told of Jean Ger main Drouais, a young French painter of the I last century. He was one who 'set his heart j upon the goal, not on the prize,' and though he died at the age of twenty-five years he is remembered as one of the great artists of his time. He began studying with the celebrated artist David when he was seventeen years old. He displayed so much character and ability that David had great hopes of his future. He was an indefatigable worker, and nothing but the best work he could do ever satisfied him. When he was twenty years old he painted a picture for the academy prize. Just before the competition closed David was dismayed to see him enter his studio carry ing the fragments of his ' academy' picture. ' Wretch !' cried the disappointed master, ' what have you done ? ...
