DßiyiNG A HEN. WJIÎÏN a woman has a hen to drive into the coop, she takes hold of her hoops with both hands, ami shakes them quietly toward the delinquent^ and says, ' Shew, there !' The ., hen takes one look at the object, to convince hurself that it's.a woma.g,._.and then stalks majestically into the coop, in perfect disgust ' of, her sex. A ,man don't do that way.' He goes out of doors and says, ' It is'sfn gnlar nobody iu this house can drive a heh but myself.' And, picking up a stick' of wood, he hurls in at the offending biped, and observes.

CHAPTER VIII. STARTLING REVELATIONS. ONE dull, intensely hot, July day, Mr. Haw ley arrived, by express train from London, at the Harrington Station, in a conveyance, and was driven up to the Hall. He sent up his card by a footman to Mr. Geoffrey Maitland. The man immediately returned to 6ay his master declined to see Mr. Hawley. ' But your master must see me,' was the reply. The servant stared, smiled superciliously, and replied that his master seldom recalled his word. ' But he will have to do so this time. Return an/1 say that Mr. Hawley has found the trump card he told him of at his last visit.' ' Is that the message I am to take ?' 'Yes.' The man was absent several minutes.

BASE BALL. ONE of thc passengers at tho depot yesterday attracted tito sympathetic attention of every beholder. The fingers on both balfes wére'^ horribly deformed. One arm was bent back- ] ward at the elbow, and part of one ear was gone. His nose 6howed the scar of having'. been broken in two or three places; one eye was entirely gone.; tfepe-^d^artn had been fractured, all the up'pcr^^ront teeth were/ 6wept away. There were two scars of scalp*! wounds, and one long one on the right cheek. , There was much speculation as to the cause' of these misfortunes. Some thought he must have slipped into a raw volcano when a child others believed bc had attempted to part two colliding locomotives ; while others still were' equally confident" that at some time in his lifo , he had been overtaken by a mowing machine. None of these contemplated the true state of the case, as it afterwards transpired that tbo_ grand cripple was the captain of a champioif^ base ball club.- '-^j r - M

SMALL FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 13 January 1877

SMALL FARMS. THE more intellect and industry a man puts in. an acre of land tho more money is he likely to take ont of it. His judgment should tell him ; what crops should pay best in the market most convenient to him. With a small farm close in hand, and a little outlay to purchase it, small outgoings for labour, and expenses, and working stock, a plentiful and judicious supply of manures, and any thing like a season, agricultural pursuits should be held in the estimation deserved. Thero is both art and good judgment in keeping down expenses on a farm and indeed in any branch of business. Suceess in tillage and husbandry depend on the capacity of the brain lather than the size of the plantation. One man by skill, industry, and economy, becomes rich by cultivating, say, fifty acres as it should be, while another grows poorer by the bad management of two hundred acres, lt is not the pursuit but thc man that is the failure. The farmer often grasps more acres than he can haudle io the ...

The doctor .said it was probable that tho patient was under tho influence of some powerful narcotic ; perhaps he had ¿taken a dose of laudanum. . He said it was imperatively necessary that the unfortunate man should be resuscitated at once by some powerful stimulaut. Accordingly he directed two of his assistants to take a strong gal vanic battery, and apply it to the patient until he recovered. The assistants went into the hospital with the battery while the nurse stopped a few moments in the laundry.
