THE NOVELIST. MJ^EO: [FELTONS HIS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AND ESCAPES. It was Mr. Purvis, slightly toned down, and less pimply and debauched looking than when Mr. Vane discovered him at Hastings. "No sugar," he cried, as the landlord was about sweetening his grog. " It spoils the flavour, by Ged. Humph, not bad this for such a clevvolish out-of-the way place." "Stranger to Broadloy, sir?" asked the landlord. " I am," said Mr. Purvis, leisxirely sipping his grog, "au entiro stranger to the beauties and attractions of your remarkable little town. Now," ho added, fixing an-eyo-glass on one eye, and regarding tho detective with an insolent stare, " I should never have thought of.finding a creechar like this down here." There was a titter among the loungers at the bar for some countrymen' had now dropped in-and Mr. Purvis, encouraged by this popular approval, con tinued " "This town of Broadley, I believe," he said, pulling ' up his collar, "is in tho county of Essex.

Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 February 1870

Pacts for Farmers. Tho Neio York Tribune, a very reliable authority, states that tho Gamgee meat preserving process is not a success. Tho flesh it is asserted does not decay, but acquires a sour taBto. Kathor than let cow fall off seriously at the pail cut up all the small stalks with short ears of corn and throw to them twice a day. If farmers were as careful about their seed as they aro about bulls and stallions the average result would be 50 instead of 25 bushels per acre.-» Autumn is the most favorable time in tho year for collecting all sorts ef vegetable refuse and muck for use in yards and stablos. Tho cream from which tho best butter is mado does not become warmer than 05 degrees F., nor cooler than 55 degrees. It is easier to make a pound of poultry meat in sum mer than half a pound in winter. Thero is no certain rule about plaster of .Paris on clover. In some situations a bushel will yield a ton, in others it does no more good than so much road-dust. Tho only things that c...

READERS of this journal, who have paid a visit to the principal town on tho banks of tho Hunter River, and who take an interest in agricultural matters, must have heard of the model farm of the Messrs M. and R. Scobie, situated on tho Oakhampton-road, within about half aj mile of West Maitland, tho numerous prizes carried off by the Messrs. Scobie at the various agri cultural shows held in the district, the great name which their fruit (grapes in particular) has obtained in the Sydney and other markets, together with the brief notices of the losses sustained by them from floods, which have appeared in the newspapers from time to time, have combined to give their establishment on the Oakhampton-roadconsiderablecelebrity.

Mr. H. J.

He thinks the Hunter Rivei winegrowers havo a legitimate right to ask if . thos( winos aro tho growth of our colony, and what means aro takon by our Government to soe that they are such. The "Victorian and South Australian journals, he adds, complain that their colonies aro so glutted with wines they do not know what to do with them.

Truth to say th© halls of Tattersall^ are quite forsaken ; letters romain in the rack uncalled for; nota solitary voice has " offered to lay six to five, or take six to four;" and Mr. O'Brien stands at his door disconsolate, looking up the street and down the street in vain for the ap proach of some well remembered pJiieog by day, and all night thinking it a sad pity that his beautiful lamps should shine so brightly down on an empty verandah. No meetings now at "Tatts" of an evening; the dusky-faced janitor's occupation knows that civil functionary no more ; fot members have all taken a trip "Westward, ho !" to give an opinion whether or not Mr. De Clouet's Black Pet ia as good a representative of the...
