Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Breeding for the Local and English Markets. PART XII. The Best Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898

Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Breeding for the Eiocal and English Markets. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S. W. BY GEORGE BRADSHAW. PART XII. The Best Varieties. Parties about to commence poultry keeping, as well as those desiring to adopt more improved methods, with a view of making the undertaking a more profitable one, naturally make the first inquiry as to ' the best breed to keep.' This is a question neces sitating a very general reply; tor, or the score of more breeds described in this work, every one has some indi vidual characteristic or desirable adaptability. Some are moderate layers of large eggs, others producers of great quantities of moderate-sized eggs; some excelling in meat quantity, others valued as quick growers ; while a few are superior as regards delicacy of flesh and facility in fattening — even the much condemned and now un popular Cochins have at least the merit of being good sitters and mothers. Poultry are kept for several pur poses — for prizes, f...

Our Bear Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898

Our Bear Garden. Sir.— As a ratepayer I protest against euoh un seemly wrangles .which, of late, have taken place in tho Council Chamber. The aldermen are put there to work for the best interests of the ratepayers, and surely their labors are not so very heavy. The local Council Chamber is fast developing into a bear gardeu, and seems to be the place for ventilation of personalities and petty spleen. I was present last Tuesday night, and was disgusted at tho manner in which the Mayor used his position to howl maledic tions at tho Advocate. I am sure, from what I know of ^ your representative, he is not tho man to 'fake reports to the detriment of the Mayor or any alderman. If the aldermen cannot work amicably together, and if the Mayor cannot ' keep clear of trying to injure a newspaper, let them vacate their seats, and then the rate payers will elect men who will attend to the wants of the municipality and not transform the Council Chamber into a bear garden. - if ours, etc., ?
