IRISH FACTION FIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898

IRISH FACTION FIGHTS. The origin of these senseless, brutal, and eruel conflicts is more or less shrouded in ob scurity. It is nbundautly elexr that neither politics nor religion bad anything to say iu the matter. They probably originated in ' hurl ing matches,' u species of hockey, once a favourite amustment among the youth of Munster on Sundays and holidays after ?' last muss.' These matches were genorally played between neighbouring parishes or counties, in somu large, convenient field, or on a bit of ' commonage.' The matches naturally caused a good deal of rivalry and jealousy ; disputes, of course, wove inevitable, and it was only natural that a hot blooded Tipperary gossoon finding himself (jetting the worst of an argu ment with a Limerick logician should have recourse to thp unanswerable and readier argu ment of the stick. The ' hurley,' ' common,' or crooked stick used in the game was specially adapted for this species of argument ; and, judiciously applied, as n rule immed...

Sponges aro not vegetables, but belong to the animal kingdom. Peers of England can act as justices of tho peace in any part of tho kingdom.

Marketing Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898

MiU'keiinj:; Ksfe's. It is one of the strangest things imagin able that any suggestions concerning the simple subject of 'selling eggs' should bo necessary, yet such is the case. The unquestioned fact being that wore the supply of eggs graded according to size and colour, and forwarded perfectly clean, ib would increase their value by ?£d. a dozen in summer, and sit least Id. in the winter months. This appears but a small item ; still from the daily papers we see that 8,000 dozen of eggs left the-. Clarence districc last August ; hence a sum of over £30 was lost to the pro ducers for that month through neghctin this particular alone. When consign ments are small, grading whether to size or colour is scarcely practicable ; but it is frequently the case when storekeepers xro the consignors. The quantities uve large, and it would be well to first wash all Miifnnilnd Qs/ea. then ' candle ' them to pro vent any bad ones reaching tho mar ket, and thus injure his brand. This 'candling ' in...

Poultry Notes. ? W — — Profitable B'ouHry ISreedins? for the fjocitl iiiu! IJuglish MiirUets. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S. W. BY GEO. BRADSHAW. ? ♦ ? PART XIII. ? 0 ? Local Marketing. ? ? In poultry, as with other agricultural produce, a question of the very first im- j portance is marketing ; and thero is no ' doubt but that much of tlio former lack of interost in Iho poultry business lias been duo to the vory low prices obtain able in our local markets. This was moro evident during the past two or three years, when the very low prices for coreals influenced many farmers to much incroaso their poultry flocks, thinking that feeding thsiv whoat to fowls would make them a bettor return than 2s. Ctl. ?1 bushel, the then ruling market prico. Howover, the lax methods employed in the poultry rearing were not responsible for all tho disappointments of the busi ness, the loose manner of marketing further contributing to that end. When in an earlier part of this work I wrote dispara...

The Sugar Industry. The Oompany and the Farmers. (Bt Unionist.) The time is approaching whon tho electors of New South Walca aro to dooido whether tho sugar duties aro to bo maintained or not. Tho sugar growers of this district scum inolincd to take thiugs easy, and miikn no effort whatever to hotter tlioir condition or to take snub stops as will result to their advantage whether tho duty is fixed at £i- or £'A per ton, or en tirely abolished.' Tho farmers aro apparently willing to leave tho matter to tho sugar Company and thoir Parliamentary representatives. The Company have endeavored to represent that the industry cannot bo r.ov,.inr1 mi iviMinnh tho dutv and that tho fanners will bo the greatest losers by its abolition. There has been a great doal said about educating the poople of other parts of the colony in regard to tho sugar in dustry.

MAN'S CONSISTENCY. ? A_A~4 ? 1 Oh dear,' gasped Mrs. Darley, as she rushed out of the house and sank into a garden seat by the side of her husband. ' What is the matter ?' asked Mr. Darley, as soon as he could remove, with great deliberation, the cigar from his mouth. 'It was a mouse. It ran right across the floor of the dressing-room.' ' Did it attack you fiercely, dear, and did you escape only after a terrible hand-to-hand combat ?' ' Now, you are making fun of me, Frank,' the little woman pouted, 'and I think it is unkind of you.' ' I don't intend to be unkind, dear, but you must own that your fear of mice is very foolish. Of course I know that it is a very general fear of your sex, but that is no reason why individuals should not try to rid them selves of the habit of getting frightened into fits every time a mouse makes its appearance. It is a small weak little thing, and ? ' Mr. Darley interrupted himself to insert the fourth finger of his right hand between his collar and his...

Cowpeas. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898

Cowpeas. In America a field of Cowpeas is of ten designated ?'the poor man's bank.' This term being ap plied on account of the power which Oowpeas possess, in. common with all leguminous plants, such as peao, alfalfa, clovers, etc,, of increasing die fertility of the soil upon which they grow. The researches of Prof. Hellreigel, a German scientist, show that, by means of minute micro organisms, or bacteria, which live in nodules, or little knobs, that, form on t.ho rnntR of tha flnw. peas (aiid of other leguminous plants), supplies of the free nitrogen of air are obtained and stored up as a plant food exceedingly valuable to tho growing crop. Many soils suffer from the want of nitrogen. This deficiency can be remedied by growing Oowpeas, and either allow ing tho vines to rot on tho ground or ploughing '.hem under as a green mauure. The manurial value of a crop of Gowpeas grown in Mackay, Queensland, was estimated at £5 per acre. ijho crop weighed 0.7 tons (vines and roots) per acre,...

Ihey were married — the two wives living in Hobart Town — and were in comfort able circumstances. The half-castes, however, readily listened to our scheme, and to cut a long story short, we soon brought it about. There was a large supply of potatoes, bacon, and general stores oh board intended for the various stations, and on the day before leaving for Schouten the six blacks and the two half-castes came on board.
