Tlioso u-lio can must have noticod the enormous iucieaso in the number of wheolmon," an increase, gradual at first, but taking rapid strides forward in the years following 1887. For an instance wo will glance for a few minutes at the 3eavly returns of tho-Stanley Show held in London. In 1878, the first yearth.it tho .S'anley Bicj'de Club held their exhibition, we find that 74 machines wore on view, this number increasing in 1887 to 628, while in 1897 at tho exhibition jnst held, we find that no less than 2,400 machines of different kinds were on view.

The Coming Winter. Mk. John Batten, of Lue, who makes notes of climatic conditions, was telling us (Mud//ct Guardian) last week that 1862 was a phenomenally dry year, but in 1863 rain commenced early in January and fell about every fortnight up to the end 0/ March, and the winter that followed was the best he has ever known, He remembers taking a load of flour to Penrith from Ilenry Dare's mill, and around the Nepean the grass was so abundant and high that the bul locks were frequently lost in it. The present season bears a striking resem blance, so far, to that of '63. Certain it is that if we have anything like rain during the next week or t.vo the pros pects of the season will be more en couraging than tor very many years.

The disturbed aspeot of affairs on the other side of the globe is still the most formidable faotor in current affairs. A fall of £ per cent, in Consols, of £ to 1 per cent, in col onial stooks, and of 3 per cent, in Spanish funds shows that even the professional optimism of the Stook Exohange has been disturbed, and that the best informed financiers in tho world think there is some, danger of war. The fall in Spanish funds may be a mere indication to that Power by the finanoial world that she must not, expect to replenish her ex hausted coffers without difficulty, if at all, in order to prepare for war with the United States. The diffi- j oulty with France and Russia is! more serious. Not long ago, it may be remembered, that the Ho...

Adulteration of Honey. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 March 1898
Adulteration of Honey. The following paper was read at the Bee Conference held at Muswellbrook last week by Mr. E. Tipper:— " Here in your little country town of Muswellbrook, dominated by one main store, the evil of adulteration is not brought home to your doors, or im mediately under your eyes as in the large ccntres of population. But you suffer from it all the same. You do not get the price you ought to for it. Sydney contains nearly one third of the popu lation of the colony, who are not prim ary producers and therefore should be your principal market, where the bulk of your products should be sent, and whence the money returns should come. But what is taking place there? As you pass grocers sh;>p after grocers shop you will see bottles in the windows •; labelled honey, but if you examine the back of these bottles, you will see a :very small label stating the fact of aduleration—so small as hardly to be noticeable. They say sugar. But whatever it is it is doubtless something...

No Vote, No Tax. A Woman's Protest. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 March 1898
No Vote, No Tax. A Woman's Protest. iviiss Xose Scott writes to the Syd ney papers to say that she has for warded the following letter to the Commissioners for Taxation : " Gentle men,—I beg to inform you that I pay the land tax under strong protest—I object to being taxed whilst I have no vote. Men are not taxed without representation, why then should women be unjustly taxed, seeing that they are in need of the protection of a vote far more than men ? In my municipality I am taxed, but I am content, seeing that I have the right to vote for the election of aldermen and auditors who control municipal affairs. I protest against aliens and blackfellows being allowed a vote if they please, whilst I and all the women of New south Wales are without a voice in choosing those parliamentary representatives who have the power to tax us, to make laws which we must obey, and to deal with far more interests than those who con fer a vote upon us in municipal affairs. Therefore, I repeat, I pay jh...
