Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry ISreertinjj for the Buocnl and English Markets. IProm the Agricultural Gazette o/N.S.W. BY flEO. liUAIJSIIAW. PART XIV. Preserving K$?s;s (Continued.) However practicable any or all of the above systoma mny bo, the freezing chamber or cool method is for all pur poses the best. Tho only tiling to do is to pack tho eggs in boxes or other recep tacles, and keep in tho cool chambers, at a temperature .slightly above froezing point— say 32 to 30 degrees— and there in no furthor trouble. With this tem perature the eggs can not only be kept an interminable time, but can bo sold, and have boon, in thousands of dozens, as new-laid, and fotched in England top market price. Nor is there iu»y decep tion in describing tb?m as such, for in a temperature aa noted everything in tho egg is held in suspense.

THE BRAIN-POWER OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898

THE BRAIN-POWER OF MAN. ? 4.A..A We have often wondered perhaps why so many great statesmen, lawyers doctors, and in fact all brain-workers, are able lo continue to work with almost unimpaired activity and energy up to a period in their lives when their general condition seems to be rapidly advancing to senile decay. An autho rity on the subject tells us that there is a physiological reason for this. He says there are two parts of the human organism that escape senile inactivity if wisely used. They are the brain and the heart. He affirms that the normal brain re mains vigorous to the last because its nutrition is especially provided for. Soon after middle life the arteries of the body begin to lose their elasticity and gradually dilate 10 such a degree that they become inefficient carriers of the nutrient blood to the smaller blood vessels, which supply nourishment to various parts of the body. There arc two important arteries, however, which supply the small vessels of the brain, ...

NARRATIVES OF THE BUSHRANGING TIMES [Copyright. 1 A True Story of Macparie Harbour. BY CAPTAIN LACIE. IN SEVEN PARTS. . PERIOD, 1848. PART VII. It was afterwards found that such was the case, for an hour previous to the attack Moreton and Pearson had gone to the schooner to see if their prisoner was all right. Not getting a reply to their summons the two went below and at once discovered what had happened. They lost no time in going back and rousing up all who were able to defend the camp. They had abun dance of firearms, and being loaded tluy were in a position to offer the most stubborn defence. On the white sand the figures of the attackers were easily seen advancing, but Moreton made a blunder in opening fire when he-did. Had he waited until the men came nearer some of the shots might have taken fatal effect. As it was, the distance and the bad light rendered them non-effective, save to cause a retreat on the part of the would-be capturers. When the six men assembled again at th...

Exporting Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898

Exporting JEggs. Shipping eggs to iiuglauu, profitably, was at one timo considered an impossi bility, the distance and climatic influence being considerod barriers to the success of any such attempts. Thanks, however, to refrigerating machinery, they can be landed there not only sound, but in auch perfect condition that some of the best English houses have purchased and sold them as new-laid. Messrs. Oetzes and Gerritaen. a larsxe London firm who trade sxtonsiveiy in eggs, had a representative n Australia two years ago, who shipped do his firm miiny thousands of dozons, ind the firm reported on them as follow : '? The eggs by the ' Massilia ' were of good quality, and when opened out pre sented an attractive appearance, they being carefully packed in cardboard divisions, filled with very dry pea husks. The consignment was carried at 1 degree above freezing point, and the freight is equivalent to about 3d. per dozon, which left the net return of 9d. per dozen. The local price at the ...

Export Marketing. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898

Exnort Marketing. Independent of the recommendations of this work becoming adopted, there is no doubt but poultry-breeding for profit, i.e., marketable fowls and eggs, is about to become more general than has ever been in the colony ; and as the local con sumption is of a very limited kind, and cannot bo much increased, the inevitable result will as3uredlv be much decreased market values. In seasons of low prices for cereals, poultry can be reared profitably, at figures even lower than those now ruling ; but, speaking generally, should poultry be come much more plontiful the Sydney prices will become unprofitaWe, and we will have to look out for markets beyond Australia, has had to bo done in connec tion with our meat, butter, and other produce ; and tho same process — the rofrigorating chambers — which has for a number of years landed the above perish able products in tho world's market, has already come to tho poultry-breeders' rescue.

One oveniug the Duke de Tascher was seated, writing a letter, when his Majesty entered the room. ' Of course tbe duko immediately rose to his feet, but tbe ISniprmr good-humourcdly desired him not to disturb himself, hut to go on with his letter. On such occasions the rule is to obey without miy objection, the Sovereign's will being considered paramount. Tho duke conso quently sat down and quietly continued bis letter, though much discomfited by the presence of the Emperor, who paced the room to nnd fro, smoking a cigarette, and humming a tune. The duke, however, leisurely finished aud folded his letter, sealing it deliberately with the large official seal in red wax, and enrcfully adding tbe stamp of tho Household.

It is s- charm that can be hung on the watch-chain or on the chatelain, along with thu twenty other absolute necessities which the woman of the day sus pends from her belt. The charm is a little silver book, with golden leaves, and is engraved with the words,' Unvergesslicbe Tage ' (uovev to-bc-forgotten days). On each of the golden leaves it is intended that a date should bti on graved which the (iosewsoi* wishes always to remember. If the little book has tuo few leaves more than ono date can bo put on each, but it is far better to hnvo a 'page' devoted to each of these memorable occasions.
