Voltaire, makes one of his most interesting characters, a Hindu, complain bitterly of an English misBion arv who . had : disturbed a whole com munity by having been caught in the very act of wringing the neoka of two pullets; and'it is stated as further and more convincing evidence of his cold blooded and utter depravity, that he cooked the pullets and ate them.

THE GUERNSEY. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
THE GUERNSEY. New South Wales interest in the Guernsey has been created by the reoent Government importations of stud cattle, this being the first introduction of the breed into the colony. Many people imagine that the Guernsey is very similar in annearanna to the .TarRav. Thin misapprehension no doubt arises 'from the facts that the breeds come from, sister isles, and that both breeds were at one time shown in the- same classes throughout the British Isles under the head of Channel Island cattle. There is, however, a great difference between the light, deer-like Jersey, and the coarser, heavier, more robust, and more useful-looting Guernsey. ' The ' great beauty of the Jersey' served fori.its introduction into the herds of the wealthy, and hence it beoame well known and widely distributed. This .same tender beauty, however, prevented the breed becoming popular with the Eng lish tenant farmer, who fora long time thought it to be more of a beautiful toy, suitable for the parks of gen...
