A Salvation Army Farm Settlement. (Full Salvation, April 2.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

A Salvation Army Farm Settlement. {Full Salvation, April 2.) I When General Booth was asked what he would do with the unemployed of this and other countries, his reply was prompt and decisive : ' Put them on the land.' The efficacy of that prescription is best attested by its success in connection with our own operations. The Hadleigh and Pakenham Farm Colonies are cases in point. With the former, however, we have no intention of dealing at present. The Pakenham venture was much in the nature of au experiment. Its success was at best problem atical, for Salvationists have to buy their experience much in the same fashion as other folk. The history of the move which resulted in the acquisi tion of that property is now largely public property, and it is cheering to note that the ultimate success of nnr T.alinnr pnlnnv ^ppmq lip nqsnrpH. althono-h it will necessarily be some time before the farm becomes self-supporting. Still, with it all, we can not but feel grateful to God for the way...

E. W. SPARKE'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

e. w. sparke's report. Only one sale of fat stock was held at the Camp bell's Hill sale yards this week on account of the Maitland Show. The Association is indeed to be sympathised with in their singular misfortune as regards weather.. Eain set in on Wednesday evening and continued very unsettled all day Thursday, and as a natural consequence the atten dance was not nearly so large as it would have been, resulting no doubt in loss to all interested. The exhibits in the stock line were hardly equal to those of previous jears. The fat cattle were not of a first-class quality. Fat Cattle. — At Monday's sale yardings were fairly heavy, and with a very large attendance of the trade sales were very animated and values showed a substantial rise on last week's rates. I have sold — On account of M. Durick, bullocks at X3, cows from XI 15s to X2 Is ; N.

We have received the following circular from tho Chairman of 'The Country Party,' Mr. Chanter : ' Legislative Assembly, Sydney, April 14th, 1894. Sir, — As the Government have now definitely de cided to at once introduce, and pass if possible during the present session, an Amending Land Bill, dealing only with the extension of the leases in the Central Division, one half of which they propose to renew for a further term of ten years, without taking into consideration that on many of these leases the whole ot the Crown Land is now urgently required for settlement; and as tho rr, H,o TTnnort nro r) nWinin or! tn ro. sist this on the grounds that as these leases do not expire until July, 1895, the whole question of land reform should be submitted to the electors at the ensuing general election, and then dealt with in an exhaustive and comprehensive manner by the new Parliament, We therefore appeal to the Press and the people to aid...

Charles Mathews. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

CharJ.es Mathews. Mrs. Bancroft tells the following story of theimpe cuniosity and good nature of Charles Mathews ' At the height of his troubles, when things went very badly, the expenses of the vast theatre being ruinous, Mathews one morning saw a ballet-girl in a dark corner of the stage crying bitterly, and evident ly iu pain. The ever-gay comedian at once jauntily approached her (for nothing seemingly could dash his spirits), and said cheerily, 'What's tbe matter, my dear?' The girl sobbed in reply, 'Oh, Mr. Mathews. I am in such riain ! I have o-ofc sn^h a. dreadful toothache !' 'Toothache!' said ho; 'poor thing, I am so sorry. I'll let you off rehearsal; ?o and have the tooth out.* 'I can't, Mr. ilathewB.' 'Can't, why not?' said he. 'I 3-a-n't — aff-o-rd it.' blubbered the girl. « Can't ifford it! Nonsense!' answered Mathews; 'run round the corner to St. Martin's Lane, where yon will get rid of it for a shilling.' 'But I haven't ;-o-t a shilling, Mr. Mathews.' 'Not got a shil...

Archdeaconries, Diocese of Newcastle. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

Archdeaconries, Diocese of Newcastle. It is not perhaps generally known that the Lord Bishop of the diocese has formed the eastern portion of the sen into a new archdeaconry. This has been done, and we have much pleasure in stat ing that the archdeaconry has been offered to and accepted by a clergyman of the diocese to whose 'long-honoured name' his Lordship feelingly re ferred in his address to Synod in 1893 — the Rev. F. D. Bode, of St. John's, Newcastle. As two arch deaconries have been already created under the names' of the 'Upper' and 'Central Hunter,' the new one, it is said, will be stvled the Archdeaconry of the Lower Hunter.' We do not, however, think these designations quite happy or suitable ; they are inappropriate and mis leading. We have no Bishop of the Hunter, or Diocese of the Hunter, but a Bishop of Newcastle and a Diocese of Newcastle. The Hunter is pro bably scarcely known beyond the limits oE New South Wales ; but the diocese of Newcastle, from long association...

A DARING GAME. CHAPTER XXIY {Continued). The cabman alighted nnd rang the Rardeii bell. A smart-looking housemaid, with white cap and white apron, answered the call. Lally alighted and inquired if Mrs. Blight were at home. The smart hou°emaid eyed the humbly clad stronger rather contemptuously, and re marked that she could not be sure ; Mrs. Blight might be at home, and then again she mioht not. ' X received a letter from her telling me to call at this hour,' said Lally, with what dignity she could summon. ' I am seeking a situation as nursery governess.' .... ' Oh, then, missus is at homo, ' replied the honsemnid. 'You can come in, miss.' Bidding tho cabman wait, Lally followed the Bervant acroBS the garden to a rear porch, and was ushered into a small, over fumisbed recepetion-room.

Raising the Dead. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

Raising the Dead. The idea of the prolongation of life hae dominated mankind ever since the first dawning of a consciousness of being. It has been tbe dream of the alchemist, student, and scientist, and to-day the question is still para mount, science investigating and fate eluding. It has been reserved for one of our own period to solve a part of the riddle which the sphinx, so relentlessly guards. Mr. William F. Desant has invented an apparatus by which the grim destroyer can be deprived of a great portion of his prey. His invention is a resuscitator, in which he has copied nature in her action of breathing and has actually produced a pair of lungB made of brass. Tho machine consists of two air cylinders, the capacity of which equalB that of the human lungs — thirty cubic incheB. The valves also resemble those of the human being as closely as they could be made to do ao. A lever connected with the piston rod causea a pressure and suction corresponding to the inspiration and expira...

The Farm and Garden. EGG EATING BY FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

The Farm and Garden. I EGO EATING BY FOWLS. Err eating hens are often the result of a habit formed by having access to broken epge, though in other cases the habit comes from an innate hunger born of the lack of proper food elements containing the nitrogen nnd the phosphate and they eat the eggs to obtain them. The Poultry Yard says: The habit of egg eating by tbe hen is, at times a very serious one with which to deal, though I never have been troubled with it but once, and then far a short time onlv. Aa I breed no fowls but Partridge Cochins, I presume I nm not troubled as much aa those who breed the Rmaller kinds of fowls, for I think the Asiat ics are not as apt to acquire the habit in question as are the smaller breeds, for the former are generally possessed of a quiet dis position, while the latter, especially Lsghorns, are very active. As preventives are better than cure, I will suggest a few which I prac tice. According to my judgment, the habit of egg eating is ofteaest form...
