JMi|ii$ÎA Htm London, Feb. 11. Tbe disturbances iu London have subsided, but excited feeling still pre- vails in the provinces, and a wide- spread agitation amongst the unem- ployed, who are holding public meet- ings in various districts. The neces- sity for remedial measures to mitigate the distress caused by the general depression of trade is strongly urged. The disaffection is most acute in the Midland counties. The Leicester police failed to prevent agitators from inciting the mob to acts of lawless- ness. Mr. Chamberlain has initiated a system of relief works subject to the labour test. The first experimenta will be made in Glasgow. Mr. Bussell, Attorney General, has been re-elected for Hackney, defeat- ing the Conservative candidate. Captain O'Shea, Mr. Parnell's nominee, has been elected for the vacant division of county Galway.

They took him for a farmer from way back, and set out to have some fun with him. On their inquiring with affected interest after the health of his wife and his children Josh with counterfeited simplicity, gave them a graphic account of his family and farm. ' Of course you belong to the church?' asked one of the boys. ' Yes and my father and grandmother before me.' ' Now I suppose you would not tell a, lie,' said one of the students. ' Not for the world. ' ' What will you take for the dog V pointing to Josh's cur, which was crouching beneath his chair. * I won't take twenty dollars for that dog.' ' Twenty dollars !

WH »^ iMftfc^ A barking dog never bites ; but our faith in the proverb varies directly as the strength of the chain. "You never saw my hands as dirty as yours," said a mother to her little girl. " No, but your ma did," waa the prompt reply. " I can't get that book through me," said the dull pupil. "Then it is safe to say you'll never get through the book !" replied the teacher. Little Johnny, on being asked by his schoolteacher if he knew what was meant by " at par," replied that " Ma was always at pa when he came home late." Unole Roger-"I couldn't do anything with the boy. He was eternally picking quarrels with everybody, and so I had to send him home." Father-" You did right Henry.

Harvesters. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

I Harvesters. Regarding the Government trial of har- vesters last week at Numurkah, says the Melbourne Leader, the work performed by two of tbe machines, viz, Messrs. Nichol- son & Co.'s and M'Calman and Gard's , goes to prove that so far as the manufac- turers are concerned, the objects sought to be attained by the Department of Agricul- ture have been successful, and ptaetical farmers who attended the trials recognise the fact that the combination harvesters are destined to supersede the stripper and win- nowers at no distant date. The machines as might be expected, have not yet reached perfection. Their shortcomings can only be remedied as they come into more general use, when farmers will soon discover and suggest accessaiy alterations, which, how- ever, will not effect the general construc- tion. The barvesteis are built on correct principles, the inventors evidently having in view the importance of combining simplicity with lightness of draught. Three borées appeared f...

As ideal music is perfect iu harmony and melody of sound, so is the wonderful climax of all plants, i e., tho flower, always perfectly harmonious iu colour and the symmetry of its component parts. Every flower is the mysterious personification or material re- presentation of beauty, harmony, and poetry, and on that account flowers are admired by all cultivated and pure minds and are made the symbol of all that is good, noble, beantiful and eternal, and tho vehicle of our fondest wishes, our warmest affections, our most cherished hopes, and of our trembling fear.

A RUN TOE LIFE. Ja j A prisoner had escaped from Dart« ^/*moor Prison. During a dense' fog, "which had suddenly enveloped a 'working convict gang, one of them a man notorious for being perhaps the fmost desperate character amongst the many desperate ones there-had con "trived to escape, and, for the present at ali events, had eluded capture. It was not a particularly pleasant piece of news for us to hear, consider- ing that we had, attracted by a very tempting advertisement, taken a small house for the summer months not "very far distant from the famous .prison itself. We were tired of sea- side places ; it seemed as if we should .enjoy a change from our everyday life in London more, if we were in some quiet secluded spot far from uncom- promising landladies, crowds of over- dressed people, and bands of music. Every day we scanned ahe papers, with a view to discovering something to suit us ; and our patience was at last rewarded by coming across the following advertisement, to which...

Temperance in India. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Temperance in India. The Colonies and India, in referring to temperance in the army, says that one of the most interesting of many annual reports sent* - us during the year, is that issued by the» Soldiers' Total Abstinence Association. Many will be surprised to leam that the-, number of abstainers in the army in Indian. " is a little more than a quarter " of the whole number. The words quoted are from an address by His Excellency the Gomman der-in-Chief at Simla, and as his testimony will be recognised as weighty, the whole sen- tence may be quoted :-" I may point out that in 1873 the total number of abstainers . was 4,445, but the latest report shows more than 12,000, or a little more than a quarterr of the British army are total abstainers, be- cause we are about 5000 short of the total, number of men." Everyone must cordially wish every success to the association in its philanthropic work.

What the Beer Business is. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

What the Beer Business is. The brewers and distillers and their lieut- - enants, the saloon-keepers, stand in opposi- tion to every class that makes any preten- sion to goodness or even decenoy. Their business is opposed to every thing in the way of good morals or of good order. It is the one business that has demorali- zation as its basis, which lives and thrives only upon vice. It kills out of a man every good impulse before that man is valuable to- it, and the customer becomes valuable ex- actly in proportion as he becomes bad. It is a business which is opposed by every true clergyman in the country. It is a business which the merohant and business man hates and detests. It is a business which is the standing dread of every mother. it is a business which is the constant, fear of every father. It is a business which is the horror of every wife. It is a business which makes ninety per oent. of the business of the criminal courts. It is a business which makes ninety per cent, of the...

% »stern §ltál SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1886. TEAMAS BIGHT. Ik another column will be found a j note detailing a renewed endeavour] of the South Australian Government to find water on the groat coast tableland of its western frontier. As every bod j knows there lies along the shores of the indentation to the south of this continent, called the drat Australian Bight, a strip of excellent pastoral country, many bun« dred miles long and from one hundred. to a couple of hundred miles wide. But the deepest wells sunk in it have hitherto struck only salt water, and not any large supply of that. The nature of the country is such that it is said to make dams and tanks im» J possible. Som« time ago the South j Australian Government determined i to test the water possibilities of that part of this vast district that was within their own border. A diamond: drill was set to work between thirty and forty miles from Eucla. After a large sum had been spent-something like ¿20,000-operations were aban...
