One bis hop. turned the tables 011 an inquiring laymnn who was clad in orthodox morning dress by asking, ' Why these buttons at the back of your coat ?' The layman was nonplussed. He had never given the matter a thought. The. obvious explanation, was, how ever, that the buttons are a survival. Formerly they served to keep a belt in its place. The belt was discarded, but the buttons remain. Similarly the episcopal apron, which...
To Fatten Live Stock. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 31 March 1903
To Fatten .JLlve Stock. if Mil. John Kammici;, of Chicago, is I reported ?? to iliave invented a process likely to revolutionise the practice of -VJ fattening live stock-, especially cattle. § The invention is in tlio liands of tlie J| American Graiu-growing Co. of Chi- U ;cago, and consists of a large galvanised 8 iron case, covered with a layer (if B common wood moss, compressed by fl wire netting, and capable of absorbing a large amount of water. Inside (Lo case are drawers in which corn is placod in layers 3 inches thick, and 7 ' water is poured into the moss,' when the grain begins to sprout, and in about four days is ready to be fed to stock. Fresh corn is substituted, and the process of sprouting ? repeated. Tlie cost of the invention is said to bu exceedingly low, and cattle eat tliu . ? gr'aixi treated by it wjtli great relish, and fatten very rapidly. Tlie grain, iu .sprouting doubles its weight, aud be ' coming soft and nourishing, is entirely arsimilaii'd, which is not t...

ArUuiign tiolilflclil. ' MOST OF THE MINES VALUELESS.' CONFLICTING REPORTS. Adklaidk, Wednesday. — Until re cently reports concerning the Arltunga field, aud mote particularly Winneeke's Depot, have been remorkable for their consistoncy. Hero and there opinions have differed as to the probable rich ness down below, but nearly all were struck with the surface shows. On tho strength of this shares have steadily risen, but 011 Tuesday even ing there was a whisper abroad that advcise news had be-n receive!1, and this impression received practical con firmation by something approaching an all round slump. This morning nil the principal stocks were affected, and a big drop is officially reported. A rumour went abroad that Mr. Brown, the Government Geologist, had sent an adverse official report, but the absurdity of such a statement is appareut. from flie fact that Mr. Brown has not yet arrived 011 tlie field, having only left Alice Springs on Monday last.

Trading by Government Regulations [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 31 March 1903
Trading by ^overnnient Etc ? filiations. A TiKGAi, anomaly has occurred 111 connection with the buicliering trade. Under the industrial agreement' which was recently tiled in the Arbitration Court between thei Master Butchers' Employees' Union, the master but chers allow their liancls one holiday in the year for the purpose of a picnic. To enable them to do so they were emnbwered tinder the arrreernMif. tn ' keep their premises open until 9 o'clock 011 the preceding night. -It had been m rangecl that the picnic would take place 011 Thursday, a 11 cl the muster butchers advertised that, in view of the neces sity,, of closing all day, their shops would be open for the convenience of tlie public until 9 p.m. on Tuesday. This . annonncement, however, served to direct the attention -of the Depart ment of Labour and lndusfry to what is regarded as a contravention of the Early Closing Act.

"Two Per Cent. off My Life." [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 April 1903
' Two Per Cent, off illy Life.'' It was in a court of justice adjoining the hideously gloomy prison of Newgate, a point at which the misery . and crime of London have for centutics been foeussed. A young man. scarce past boyhood, stood before the late Lord Chief Justice Coleridge, chareed with embezzlement. He was a bright, in telligent youth, 8uinewhat better -educated than the average English clerk, but not clever enough to make one sovereign. do the work of five, so he luid embezzled his em ployer's money in order to livo according to his taste. The employer objected, hence the scene of which we have a vivid recollec tion. After reading him a fatherly lecture, the eminent judge sentenced the dcliuqneut to two years' imprisonment. ''Two years !' exclaimed the convict, as he was led away. 'Two per cent, off my life, if I live for a hundred years !' Yes, two years makes a distinct notch iu the life even of a centenarian ; and then, you see, very few of us can reasonably hope to beco...
A New Race of Pony. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 April 1903
A Sew Itaee of B'ony. ^ The most interesting event of modern times connected with the domestic horse is the discovery by Professor Cossar Ewart of a distinct race of small horses or ponies existing in Iceland, the Faroe, Barra, and certain other of the smaller lsianus or tiie western Hebrides. A no tice of these small horses appeared in tho '? Field'- of January 31, 1903, from which it is gathered that the most pronounced characteristics of the race are the absence of callosities, or chestnuts ou the hind legs, and the shortness of the hairs on the upper portion of the tail. - Where this pony originated it is impossible to say, but there is little doubt that it is a dis tinct race from the pony of ; Western Europe, hitherto believed to be the only race of ponies in Europe. This race is found over a considerable area, though generally very mixed from outside cross ing It is found in Brittany and most of North-Western France, in Wales, Ire land, Scotland, and the Shetland Islands.

Notes by "Bushman." [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 April 1903
Notes by '? Bushman I In his effort to vindicate the soundness of, Australian finance, Mr. Copeland, Agent-Geneml for New South Wales, carefully avoided every vital operation which is necessary to prove the stability of a -people — its honest' progress, nnd above all its power to pay its w*y. Mr. Copelatid labours heavily mi publicly owned railroads, roads, and the length of bridges and twopenny-halfpenny culverts, lie was also heavy on tho income from the ? sale and gradual dispersal of the Crown estate He even reminded tho private Britisher of the £7.000,000 or more he was drawing as interest, annually from private investment in tho colonies. He tried* to show human addition by excess of births over death rate. He even reached back to the time when Captain Cook was planting the British standard, under the gaze of a tribe of' scared natives, as a kind of favourably reversible picture of then and now. Mr. Copeland, however, carefully avoided any reference to the growth or decline in...
