One hundred Miles an Hour. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

One hundred Miles an Hour. The real danger in increasing tbe Bpeed of ex presses driven by ateam does not lie iu incidental risks. It is not denied that a modern locomotive might be built: which could run up to 90 or possibly IOC mileB an hour. It is tlie curves of the existing lines which render any such speeds impossible, un less the weight of the engines and trains were also increased far beyond what the bridges and per manent wav would bear. At the first Bharp curve the 100-mile express would fly off the rails. The necessary relation of thess curves to speed is ac curately known, and it is that, and not the want of power, or novel dangers from wind pressure or boiler explosions, which sets the limit to modern train speed. Ab the force tending to throw off the line a train running at the speed of 150 miles an hour would be about six and a half times greater than which a steam express train resists at a curve when running at 60 miles an hour, it is plain that the present lines cou...

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

.Sporting Notes and Notions. I [Bt the Vagrant.] I have received the following note from Mr. John Tomkins, which speaks for itself : — ' Sir, — In a recent issue of the Mercury, in answer to ' Thanks,' you said the first rase meeting held on the Flemington racecourse was held about the .year 1845, but that the exact date was not known. I am inclined to think that the Melbourne ,/lv.slm lasian could give tho correct date if referred to. My own recollections of matters Victorian date back to July, 1810, and unless my memory is more treacherous than usual, the first race meeting held at Flemington was on the 17th day of March, 1843, when the Leger was won by a dark brown or chestnut gelding called Petrel. A mare called Betsy Bedlam was also a winner in those early days, when horses that could not carry 9st. or 10st. 1-J to 3 miles were put to some other work than racing.' I would like to ' draw off' some of Mr. Tomkjns's recollections, which should be very in teresting to those whose m...

Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Q xiccn slander, April 14) Unsettled weather has been reported throughout the colony this week, and in the North heavy floods, causing much damage to property and some loss of life, have occurred. Very cheering reports are to hand from the Western districts. Where afew weeks ago there was nothing but bare parched earth the grass iB now 3ft. high, and stock are fast picking up in condition. In some places the-firat grass that tbe residents have seen for two years has just sprung up, and all the water storage is fully replenished. No such season has been experienced for years. Coastwise, the rainfall for several years past has been all that could be desired, and the excellent seasons have done much to counteract the ill effects of financial depression. Warwick, April 6.— Light rain fell to-day, and the weather is still threatening. Toowoomba, April 11. — The weather is unsettled and Bhowery, but only locally. Outside places are in ...

A Camel in Granite. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

A Camel in Granite. One of the most curious rock formatioms in the world is to be seen in Arizona. It is a short distance east of the stage road between Tuscon and Oracle, and stands on & knoll several feet above the sur rounding sand-hills. When first seen the efftcfc is startling, and the mind has to get over a shock be fore the peculiar object can be comprehended. It is a most perfect representation of a camel, and is formed nP n. nifltin nf r/rn n This curiosity is of colossal size, but perfecly pro portioned. It is about GO feet high and is very whit© and smooth. There are very few fissures on the surface, and they, strangely, are in the proper places to form features. The only real projeetio from the surface is exactly placed for an eyebrow. The two humps are plainly to be seen, and the neck is curved beautifully. The rock is really a solid piece rising from the ground, butthe effect of legs is produced by a clump of dark-coloured brush that grows beside the stone. The...

The Ettrick Shepherd. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

The Ettrick Shepherd. j Of James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd, Grange Kildare, writing in ' Great Thoughts,' remarks : — None of the writers who have sprung from the people possess a greater or more enduring claim upon the admiration and affection of tbeir fellow-countrymen than James Hogg. Descended from forebears who for five gen erations had been shepherds, it was a matter of course that James should become a cow herd when he turned 7, the age at which, in those days, a Scotch peasant lad was expected to begin his working life. One always regards with suspicion statements that this or that genius had little or no educational advantages. Genius, amongst other things, generally manages to redress the balance by making such a good use of all its opportunities that the difference between its ' schooling' and that of the ordinary run is more than bridged over. There is, however, plenty of authority for the fact that the lad only attended school for some six months while in his sixth yea...

Burke and Hare, the Body snatchers. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

Burke and Hare, the Body- snatchers. The most notorious body-snatching fiends ever known were Burke end Hare ; and no trial (it was said at the time) in the memory   of living man excited so deep and universal   an interest as that of William Burke and his female associate, Helen McDougal, which took place in December, 1828. Public feeling had been worked up to the highest pitch of excitement by the statements which had from time to time appeared in the newspapers. It is not at all necessary here to give exhaustive details of the tremendous sensation the dia- bolical deeds of Burke and Hare created, or to recount the details of the lengthy and memorable trial ; suffice it to say that the two notorious characters, Burke and Hare were Irishmen, and lived in a dis- trict of Edinburgh called the West Port, considered at that time one of the most dangerous in the city. Being a native of Edinburgh, I know the district very well ; but the murders were committed ma...

POTATOES FROM SEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

POTATOES FROM SEED. There are many constantly engaged in tho work of trying to find a new typo of potato that will prove superior to any of those now in use. This labor is very often rewarded very poorly so far as financial results are con cerned. But in many ways tbe experiments are of value, and should be conducted on a small scale wherever potatoes are raised in quantities. A small patch of land will be sufficient for thia purpose, and if in the course of ten years, some new ideas about potato culture aro obtained, or a new type evolved, one may feel well rewarded for tbe work. In order to beg'n the work the seed must be obtained from vigorous parent stock. Se lect tho finest potatoes in the field, and then by judicious crossing there :b some hope of improving upon the qualities of these types. Plant the potatoes in good soil, as the experi ment garden always should be, and when the seed balls are ripe in the fall of the y en they should be gathered and exposed to the sun for a f...

SWEET CLOVER AS A HONEY PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

SWEET CLOVER AS A HONEY PLANT. Sweet clover i'b seldom seen growing ex cept along roadsides where the ground is hard. In such localities it is a persistent growth and attains to the largest growth where the land is fertile. It is not generally en couraged but it is considered rather an inter loper, marring the anoearance of thn lnnn. An exchange says the testimony as to Bweet clover is, as to some points, very conflicting, Nearly all agree that it is a good honey-plant. Perhaps no one has ever disputed its being a good yielder, but it has been asserted that it yields houey that is --f a sooty appearaace others say that Bamples that have been Bhown as sweet clover honey have certainly had nothing Booty in their appearanoe. The roots run very deep, making it a good plant to stand a drought, so flbat it may be depended upon better than most plants in a dry season. Some say it is a valuable-fodder plant ; others say it is worthless. If a cow or a horse which had neYer before seen sweet ...

In the March number there is a tribute rtich aa only Mark Twain could prodnco to tbe fearless courage of the flea Courage is resistance to fear — tnnstery ot rear — not absence of fear. Except a creature be part coward it is not a compliment to say that it is brave; it is merely a loose application of the word. Consider the flea ; in comparably the bravest of all God's creatures, if ignorance of fear were courage. Whether you are asleep or awake he will attack you, caring nothing for the fact that in bulk or strength you are to him as are the maBaed armies of the earth to a sucking child. He lives both day and night and all days and nights in the very lap of peril and the immediate presence of death, nnd yet is no more afraid than is the man who walks the streets of a city that was thr...

The Farm and Garden. THE ASIATIC FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

The Farm and Garden. THE ASIATIC FOWLS. Probably no other fowls have done more to stimulate the interest in high-bred poultry than have the Asiatic races. They are the largest and most imposing breeds extant, and always attract much attention at poultry ex hibitions for their magnificent carriage and form. Their rich and lustrous colouring and beautiful penciling are also strong factors in adding devotees to the ranks of their ad mirers from among the class who take pleasure in breeding for fine feather, and this is not a small portion of the fanciers of the day. It was the races of the Brahma and Cochin which made s«ch a furore for large fowls in the ' hen fever daya.' These birds were rare then, and fabulous price* were given for them ; not ex ceeding, however many prices of the present day realized by Ihe breeders of prize speci mens at the largest exhibitions. The Brahmas are probably the best known of any thoroughbred fowl among poultry keepers. It is the largest of all, twelve...
