HINTS ON THE TRAINING OF HEIFERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 14 May 1883
.HINTS ON THE TRAINING OF HEIFERS.. A writer in the n'" uonntry Gentle mn". says :-It is an, easy matter to train a' - heifer to 'stand quietly to be> .milked, buit it is eiiier to train them to jump; kicd: and run." The way to tunch them to stanid still is 'to require them always. to do so. If there is nought to hinder a wild heifer from running, and if her fears prompt her to run, in a short time she loses her fear and standls from habit; and habit is one of the moit powerful influences'in this world for either brute or man. If you want to transform a wild heifer into a well-behaved, well-trained cow, you mnust he patient and exhibit no temper. Never strike her. She must first of all get acquainted with you and learn that you will not hurt her. She must learn not to fear you:. In winter, it'is best to nilk in theo tablo, make as little fuss and as few alarming motions as possible; handle her very gently. Be careful not to pinch the teats This is the great source of trouble. A c...

THE Maffra Spectator. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 14, 1883. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 14 May 1883
THE MAFFRA SPECTATOR. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 14, 1883. A SUBJECT of great public importance, which has been brought under the notice of Parliament by Mr L. L Smith, and by Mr Albert Harris, one of our local representatives, is the desirabiiity of effecting a reduction in the cost of telegrams, in the postage of inland letters, and in the delivery of newspapers throughout the colony free of cost. The Postal Conference which has been sitting in Sydney call atten tion to a statement which has been made to the effect that the interests of the several colonies are so conficting as to present an insuperable obstacle to a reciprocal arrangement for mainte nance of the sea service, but are of opinion that the difficulties have been over-estimated —that a reduction of postage can be effcted, and that the loss consequent upon such reduction shall be borne in equitable proportions by the colonies concerned.

"PULLING HARD AGAINST THE STREAM." [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 17 May 1883
'?PULLING HARD AGAINST THE STREAE." A long departed inhabitant of the Snowy River district (says the " Ma nero Mercury"), was afflicted with an incurable partner in life " till death did them part," and everything she did was done by the rule of contrary, and of course as all people know, a house divided against itself must fall. One day affairs at home did not act accord ing to her ideas, and she said to her partner for weal or for woe, "Joe, I shall go and drown myself," and she went. The husband imagining it was only a jest (whilst alas I his wife was in earnest), thought no more of the mat. ter. However, night came on, and no return of the wife being visible, or palpable, Joe began to become anxious for the sharer of his bed and board. At the first break of day, he strolled down to the river bank, which ran close before his habitation. Behold ! There were her bonnet, boots, crino line, &c., deposited on the bank of the river. He immediately made his neighbors acquainted ...

POETRY. Lre, :what is lifoe A : rushing, restless tide Where strong andt shattered barks to gether ride, Whose fitful moods, as far too many know, Rising to fall, and falling but to flow, Till at the flood it rushes swiftly by, And bears us on to fortune or to die; Or drift about, 'mid oceans of distress, To find it all so deep and fathomless. Some Mny that life is like a summer's sky, Cloudless and bright until a storm draws nigh. It seemoth then that happiness is o'er, And turned to chaos what was peace be. fore ; Life is not always dark. Some brightening ray Will chase the string of sorrow's gloom away, And when the hour of tribulation's o'er Will leave us stronger than weowero be. fore. Stronger to face and bear thd brunt of life, Stamp out the evil where 'tis mostly rife, Stronger to take the cross and bear it on To fight the fight of faith, and win the crown; But, failing this, our talents to em ploy, Aimless to live and hopelessly to die, To roam about in blind uncertainty WV...
