Weighing Cattle in the Saleyard. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 27 November 1882

?Weighing Cattle in tie Saloyard. THERE was recently introduced by Messrs. Swan, at the saleyard, Haymarkot, .Edin burgh, a method of conducting auction sales of'cattlo which (remarks tho Scotsman) ,is said: to be now. in the old country, though it has'long been in general uso in tho Unitod States 'and Canada. Hitherto the . usual praotico in Scotland has boon for tho auc tioneer to iput forward the animal offered without making any .statement, or at least any that professed to be exact, in regard to its live woight. The purchaser was thus left to form such rough estimate as he could by uso of eye and hand, and.to regulate, his oners accordingly. There would soem to bo an impression among, farmers having cattlo to dispose of that this system is calculated to tell in favour of the butcher and against their interest; and if not at the instance, it is, we believe, in accordance ' with, the wishos of their clients, that Messrs. Swan have replaced it with the. moro exact on o of publicly...

Some serious and painful results to dogs have occurred from the proportion of using from one to tweuty. To keep oii tho ordinary fly and horsefly rub your horses just before harnessing with a mixture of one part of crude carbolic acid and six parts of olive oil.

Assassination by Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 27 November 1882

Assassination by Silence. " ASSASSINATION by silence," says the Detroit Free Press, is the latest Gallicism. It, was tlic verdict o£ the medical men of society in the ense of a French woman recently deceased i, and a coroner's jury would probably have rendered the same verdict if the case had not been kept from the coroner. Noble by birth she was, and very rich j but she was hope lessly plain, ugly of feature, and humped-hacked . Her. husband, a duke, married for her money, and hated her for her ugliness. A fortnight after her wedding lier martyrdom began, but not as other conjugal martyrdoms have done. Tho duke lavished attentions on her in public; but lie was affectionate -before the , servants ; it: was "darling," and ?" beloved,", and " my. l'ttlo cat"-when anyone win present j but in private ho changed, and only ouo old nurso was in tho secret. Ho pretended to bo jealous of her, and so played tlie Othello. Ho had the hinges of all the doors so carefully oiled that tlicy oould b...

Notwithstanding the fact that I asaurod a public meeting of my. constitu ents on Friday night last that my absence from the House on the division on the second reading of the Land Bill was due to two causes, both of which I think were reason able,, viz., illness,- and the idea, shared by most other members of the House, that no ! division would take plaoe for two or three weeks, I was exposed to what I may al most call the insulting interruptions of cer tain persons in the hall.
