Poultry on the Farm. [By a Writer in the Field.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Poultry on Hie Farm. [By a Writer in the Field.] | I have lately been engaged in an enquiry aB to what is the best in farm practice. Among other topics was that of poultry, and the best breeds for the market. Mr. Teget meier sent me a short note, in which he said that if eggs wera wanted, there was no breed better than the Minorca i, so common in the south-west counties. If table fowls were re- quired, the Dorkings or Surrey fowls, crossed with the game occasionally, to give hardi- hood and increased breast meat. To a cer- tain extent this view is confirmed in my own neighbourhood, where Minorcas are becom- ing very popular for eggs. I have, however, been able to obtain full information of the practice in poultry-keeping on the Stalls Farm, near Frome. This is the Home Farm belonging to the Marquis of Bath, and, under the management of Mr. H. Fry, is celebrated for its poultry and eggs ; the poultry (whe- ther fowls, geese, or turkeys) always com- mand the top price in the Frome and...

r EXTRAORDINARY SCENE AT A CONVENT. [BY lEIiECrBAPH. | Bourke, February 20. There is great excitement in town about strange proceedings at the convent here yesterday afternoon. It is alleged that Father Suggard and the nuns sought to forcibly detain a girl named Louisa Mox- ham, aged fourteen. Her father, who is totally blind, was surprised that the child .did not return from her music lesson at tjje usual time, and with a friend walked .down to the convent to see, and were in- formed by the priest that they could not .see or speak to the child, as they intended to keep her. He would not listen to their .appeals at alL The girl's father is a Protestant, arid, some time after, tho friends of Moxham assembled, and under legal advice broke open the door with an axe, meeting with strong resistance on the part of the priest and nuns, who were greatly excited.

CLOSING OF THE COMMERCIAL BANK. (From the Register of Feb. 27.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

CLOSING OF THE COMMERCIAL i BANK. -« (From tlie Register of Feb. 27.) Attracted by the ominous notice, a | crowd of people soon gathered, increas- ing momentarily ; there was ho demon- stration, but great excitement neverthe- less prevailed, in the minds of business meu interested there was some hope that the suspension would be only of a very temporary charastcr, but now and again a [ poorer depositor would pass along ; and, reading the notice, would show very strong agitation. One poor old man be- moaned with copious tears the fact that he had deposited his little capital of £400 at interest, and feared tbat he would lose it all. Another man said he had a day or two ago come down from the country, and put money into the Bank. Coming into town on Wednesday morning he in- tended drawing out enough from his deposit of £370 to pay his current ex- penses. Of course on arrival at the Bank he found what was the cause of all the excitement, and the poor fellow left the place in a very dep...

Sporting. SPORTING GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

smttifc_ SPORTINO GOSSIP BY VINDEX.) The weights foi the handicaps at York and Pertn lia ve now come to hand from the handicapped Mr. Mitchell, and we are now in the position to treat of the prospects of the various candidates. The chief interest of the sporting men has centered upon the question of how Tre- mando should be treated as compared with Young Banker and Barley Bree. It will be remembered that in the race for the Queen's Plate over three miles Bar- ley Bree carried 9st. 91bs" Young Banker 9st. 7lbs. and Tremando 9st. For the three miles race at York, the Avon Handicap, these three carry the following weights:-Tremaudo9st. L21bs. Barley Bree 9st. 91bs; Young Banker 9st. 71bs. The handicapper is of opinion, therefore, that Tremaudo gave Barley Bree a 121b. beating and Young Bauker a lélbs. beating in ttie race for the Queen's Plate. I fail to see how he arrives at these figures, unless indeed he puts out of count altogether the past days ruuniug and treats Barley Bree and Y...

Australian Independence. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Australian Independence* Australians, as a people, are in no way behind tho people of other British terri- tories in their attachment to the Throne. Occasionally, however, some hot-head- ed fancied patriot, starts up, announcing that the Era of Independence has arriv- ed, and through the medium of the press makes public his desire that the Aus- tralians should at once throw off the Brit* isli yoke, and that Oceania should uplift the flag of a great Republic in the South* ern seas. A little while back over the signatures " G. S." and " R. A. Manning," there appeared in a South Australian pa- per, some letters on the question of Aus- tralian independence. The writers took for a text their distrust in the pro- mises of the British Cabinet with respect to the French, and the New Hebrides. We were " had" in the case of New Gui- nea, and we would be equally "had " In the case of the New Hebrides. The /ot- ter signed by "R. A. Manning" ends in this inspiring strain :-*' Are tbe6o things t»...

GRIPPED BY AN OCTOPUS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

t GßIPPßD BY1 AN OCTOPUS. During the recent season we lost two men by sharks, but I took no pre Cautions and had no narrow escapes. In the beginning of the third season we anchored off a splendid bed, in a location well sheltered from storm and «well, and we had reason to anticipate a profitable catch. There were four of us on that trip, and the first man over the rail was an old diver mimed Peterson. This was -about 7 o'clock in the morning, and although we hud been up for two hours the bay had been clear of sharks. We watched Peterson go over, but we watched in vain for him to come up. Twenty seconds passed-then thirty --then forty, and the captain leaned over the rail and cried out : "Boys, the old man has got fast down there, and is a goner !" We waited ten seconds longer and then felt sure that we should never see ¿the old man again. We were in 23ft. ?of water, and the trawl showed the bottom to be clear of weeds and made up of rock and sand. It was hard to .guess what had happ...

TRAVELLERS' SNAKE STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

TRAVELLERS' SNAKE STOKIES. Serpents may be divided into two great classes - those with kill by muscular pressure and those which poison. Of the fit st, the boa and its congeners, the python (Indian boa) anaconda, the great water snako of South Anif rica, are the most formid- able. Thirty feet, or very little over, seems to be the maximum length to which the first and second attain ; the last has been known to grow 40 feet in length. It is just to add that ser- pents of these dimensions are ex- cessively rare. And, further, it may be stated in general terms that the in- stances where they have attacked men are comparatively rare also. The great python of the Sunda Isles has been knowu to kill, though it could hardly swallow, a buffalo. The exploit of one of these reptiles furnish- ed a subject very popular among the illustrators of books on natural history early in the present century. The story goes that a Wa)ay prow had an» chored for the night under the island of Celebe. One of th...
