QUID PRO QUO [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 28 February 1888

QUID PRO QUO. Not many years ago, an Irish jockey was called as a witness on trial, and the barrister on the opposite side, with that infamous' licence those gentlemen use in such cases, did all he could in the cross-examination to invalidate his testimony. ' What are 3'ou ? ' he began, in a bullying tone. 'Sure ]'am a jockey, as my father was before me,' replied the other coolly. ' Ah said the bully, striking his thumbs within the armholes of his waistcoat, 'and I suppose your father did a little cheating in his time like the rest of your fraternity?' ' Troth, and I s'pose he did, now and then,' was the quiet response. The counsel smiled blandly at this damaging ad mission. Then, assuming a stern tone and shaking his forefinger, he deman ded, in a loud voice, ' And where do you suppose he is now? ' 'In heaven I hone: Lord bless his sow!.' and what should such fellows as jockeys do in heaven?' cried the barrister, in a voice of thunder. Paddy scratched his head, then with a sly grin...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS BRITISH & FOREIGN London, February 20. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 28 February 1888

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. BRITISH & FOREIGN London, February 20. The messenger, who was despatched to Khartoum to ascertain how matters were progressing, has returned to Cairo, and his reports to the Khedive throw additional light on the circum stances under which Khartoum fell to the Mahdi, but for the present the in formation is strictly confidential. Some intelligence brought by the messenger has however leaked out. It appears that Siaten Bey and Lup ton Bey, the late G-eneral Gordon's Lieutenants, arestill about Khartoum Siaten Bey has received the appoint ment from the Mahdi of Commander of part of the forces. The messenger states that he has grown very power ful and insolent and refuses to return to the Khedive's service.

Labouehere moved an amendment requiring ex plicit assurances fr- in the Government that Great Britain had not eon I meted an alliance with Italy, which in the event of being put to the test would prove hostile to France.

HEATING WHEAT BEFORE GRINDING [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 28 February 1888

IIEATOTG WHEAT BEFORE . GRINDING-. According to tho GkhmanAmert ca.'N Miller (Chicago and New York) the beating of wheat before grinding was in, all probability suggested by the fact that bolting is less difficult and more effectual in warm than in cold weather, and it was found that ?by heating the wheat the same con ditions could be kept up all the year through. But this is only one of the advantages of heating. Tho action of hot air and steam is essentially different for the grain and the meal. The hot air dries the wheat, but drives a portion of the moisture back into the interior of the berry ; while ^?steam heat draws the moisture to the bran, thus drying the interior of the grain and then forming the bran so that a double advantage is gainedjat the start, for wheat thus dried will give a flour with better keeping qualities, and the toughening of the bran is an advantage in preventing its comminution in the grinding and finishing process. There is yet anoth er advantage. It is...

STEAMING CHAFF [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 28 February 1888

STEAMING CHAFF. Ths following useful letter on steaming chaff appeared in the Agri cultural Gazette : — J- have lately put up a vessel 6ft square and 10ft high, otwood. It rests on a concrete floor; and a little cement iu the augle form ed by the floor and the sides makes it steam-tight, Ou the floor I lay a false bottom of boards resting on bearers 2in deep, perforated with -]-in or -jj-iu round holes, Sin auavt. Then I fill this vessel with chaff, and as soon as there is a little chaff in the bottom 1 turn the waste steam from the engine under the false bottom. This rises up through the chaff, and steams it ; and even mouldy hay will be eaten by all the cattle with avidity. 1 have also cut rashes direct off the boggy place, chaffed them, and steam ed them; and the cattle will eat them. But with tho rushes I put a boufc fib to lib of cotton-cake meal to each bushel of chaff. For milk cows, 1 water the chaff a little when putting it in ; but this takes longer to steam ; and the wast...

SUGGESTIONS FOR PACKING FRUIT FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 28 February 1888

SUGGESTIONS FOR. PACKING FRUIT FOB EXPORT. The following suggestions for the packing of fruit for export are made by Mr. Gustavo Carsten. sen., lately market superintendent, but now super intendent of the lioyal 'Victoria Gardens, Bombay: -r- Apple.* intended for a long sea voyage should be gathered about a week previously to packing, and be most carefully 'handled, as the slight est blow is sure to leave a brown spot, and spoil the appearance of the fruit. After gathering, the fruit ought to bo spread out in a single layer on per-' forn ted shelves in a cool. 'and almost dark place.

I|e Illlm'tiier, N't/iii sine Lahore. EEBEUA.ll! 2St.li, 1SS8. E everting again to the First Progress Report of the Agri cultural Commission we take » the opportunity to notice the ^ statements made by nearly aJl the farmers who gave evidence, to the effect that the local Agricultural Societies did little or no good whatever to en coura ge agricul t u re . Th c-.se statements are also borne out by the result oi' the last Show held in Bunbury, which though it was honored by the presence of the Governor, was ^ much poorer in many ways than any Show held here pre viously. Considering that it was known for some time be forehand that His Excellency had accepted the invitation to be present, it was rather a poor compliment to pay him by no extra exertions being made to get up a more successful ex hibition. The Shows at Yasse and Bridgetown were but little better than Bunbury, though .at the latter place there seems to be moL'e interest taken in such matters than in any other part of these...

A HORSE-DEALING PARSON [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 28 February 1888

A HORSE-DEALING PARSON. Many years ago a complaint was made by a French gentleman, named Latu, before the Bath magistrates, against a clergyman who resided in that city, and who was remarkable for dealing in horses. The Frenchman's version of the transaction was as fol lows: — ''I go to buy a horse of him, and he ask me forty guinea. I say \No, by gar, I'd not give that.'' l- Well,' say the clergyman, ' I tell you what. You shall have him for thirty- five guinea; but, d— n my eye, you shall have him no less.' Here the magistrate interrupted with, 'You could not think of dealing with .a clergyman who was so ready to swear.' ' I thought a clergyman, would not swear to anything but true, so I paid him the money. Well, I got upon the horse and he go beautiful. Then I put him in Bell's stables, and I ride him next day, but he go upon three leg; so I put him tip again, but he still go upon three leg; and then I give him a doctor. But then he walk upon his knee j and I say, By gar, if you ...
