A QUEER HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 10 February 1877
A QUEER HORSE, THERE is a ret*'red trainer named Long, says ; the San Francisco yews latter, residing on a j small farm in Alameda County, who lives j for nothing else but the pleasure of being ¡ near horses. He eats his meals in the stable j often-times passes the night in the same stall , with a favourite pony, and among his equine [ pels is a mare who whinnies in answer every time he speaks to her. Our informant re lates that the most perfect understanding evidently exists between Mr. Long and at least three out of the five hoVses in the i stable. Two are recent additions ; but even in their case the same affinity is seen in a lesser degree. ! The training of horses, their obediance, docil'ty, and tricks in a circus are no novelty. All of ÜB have seen a horse fire a pistol, stand on two legs, waltz, lie down with its trainer, and perform a hundred acts of sagacity, but these' are simply the result of patient training and systematic correction. What Mr. Long claims is far more ast...

THE BEST IN THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 10 February 1877
THE BEST IN THE HOUSE. BARNEY O'G. was an amusing little Irisman who kept a choice restaurant in a business neighbourhood and his principal patrons were therefore business men. They not only patronised him liberally through the week, but, as his place was on the general thorough : fare to the post office, it was surmised that they steppedwjto see him on Sunday also. t At any rate^^roch clinking of glasses and popping of coriss was heard in Barney's place on the Sabbatn. as on Secular days. There was a churcu just round the corner-a rigid Presbyterian congregation-:and several of its members complained to the authorities of Barney'6 doings and the police were ordered to suppress them. Strange to say, the officers could never 'get their dots on him,' as the expression goes and finallv reported that thc accusation was unjust and that he never sold liquor on Sunday. The church folks, however, knew better, and one of them who had considerable faith in his own shrewd, ness declared himsel...
SINGULAR PROPERTY OF TOMATO LEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 10 February 1877
SINGULAR PROPERTY OF TOMATO LEAVES; ? . j THE following is a translation from El j Mercurio, a \ aper published at Valparaiso ! S.A. I planted a peach orchard, writes M. Siroy of the Society of Horticulture, and the trees grew very strongly. They had'but just com menced to bud when they were invaded by the curculio (Pulgón), which insects were followed, as frequently happens, by ants. Having cut some tomatoes, the idea oceured that, by placing some of the leaves around the trunks and branches of the peach trees I might preserve them from the rays of the , 6un, which were very powerful. My surprise was great, upon the following day, to find the trees entirely free from their enemies not one remaining, except here and there where a curled leaf prevented the tomato from exercising its influence. These leaves Icare fully unrolled, placing upon them fresh ones from the tomato vine, with the result ol banishing the' last insect and enabling the trees to grow with luxuriance. Wishing io ca...
