DISTRICT NEWS. BRANXTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [FROar Our Correspondents.] BFSflNKTOfi. Peogress Committer. — The necessity of form ing an active, energetic progress committee that will see to the town's requirements was, perhaps, never so apparent as at present. The state of tho main, street in some placos, notably that portion in front of Rudd's butchoring establishment, and ex tending towards the bridge, is absolutely dangerous to life and limb, and should be attended to at once. Individual representation of our require ments' carry no weight, and is consequently un heeded; but if needed improvements wore indi cated by a properly elected committee they would receive the- attention they deserve. The road referred to has been cut away by suc cessive rains forming a gully some feet deep. When two vehicles pass each other one has to approach dangerously near thia gully. It is really a wonder no serious accident has oc curred. On a dark night it is very risky, especially to strangers in blissful ignorance of the yaw...

Bits of Science. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

Bits of Science. An oyster may carry as many as 2,000,000 eggs. Many small animals eat their own weight in food sin a day. Rapid growth of the finger nails is considered to indicate good health. The largest apes have only sixteen ounce3 of braia 5 the lowest men have thirty-nine. Twelve thousand microbes sfcruag on a line would make a procession only one inch in length. The biggest fresh water fish, the ' arapaima,' cf the Amazon, in South America, grows tosixfeet in length. A thousand millions of the animalculaj found in tagnant water do not collectively equal the size of a grain of sand. A toad is no fonder of dirt than anyone else, aad before he sucks an angleworm down hiB throat scrapes the dirt off with his paws. Darwin asserted that some species of trailing vines can see. They always make for the nearest object around which they can twine. The breaking weight of one foot of cast iron one inch square is 5,871 pounds; the breaking weight of a piece of hickory of the same dimensi...

How Insects Make Music. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

How Insects Make Music, Everybody is familiar with the music of the katydid. Here again it is the male that has the voice. At the base of each wing cover is a thin membranous plate. He elevates the wing cover and rubs the two together. If you could rub your shoulder blades together you could imitate tho ooevation very uicelv. Certain grasshoppers make a souud when flying that is lite a watchman's rattle — clackety-clack, very rapidly repeated. There are also some moths and butterflies which have voices. The 'death's head' moth makes a noise when frightened that strikingly resembles the crying of a young baby. How it is produced is not known, though volumes have been written on the subject. The 'mourning chak' butterfly— a dark species with alight border on its wings— makes a cry of alarm by rubbing its wings together. The katydids, crijkets, grasshoppers, and other mnsical insects are all exaggerated in tbe tropics, assuming giant forms. Thus their cries are pro portionally louder. ...

A New Departure. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

A New Departure. Saturday in Sydney witnessed a novel sight. An organised assault was made on the pockets of . the people in aid of the hospitals in the metropolitan area. Matrons and maidB were posted in the streets with stands and boxes, on and in which to re ceive the contributions of the charitable. In satiaDle collectors ot tne same sex invaded tbe railway stations, stood beside the cab stands, visited suburban villaB, lay in wait aB the ferry boats emptied themselveB of their living freights, penetrated into shops and offices in the city, sought the dim recesses of wool . warehouses, en tered theatres and hotels, repaired to the noisome dwellings of the Chinese, and in fact left no place unmolested where men did con gregate. The shipping in the harbour alone was left to men collectors. The outcome of all this pervading and novel activity waB the gathering of no less a sum than £1675. All tbe collectors were distinguished by wearing a white sash, and though in some cases the; w...

HOW TO FEED POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

HOW TO FEED 3?OULTBY. The extremes of the lean and tbe plethonc tendencies in domestic animals should be avoided as much as possible. A certain amount of activity and exercise ia essential for tbe maintenance of health but too much tendency to leanness is not profitable. Either tendency however, may be modified by a proper selection of the foods, some of which promote bone and muscle growth and others produce fat. A writer npon the subject oaya : When fouls have a free range, and can select such foods as they prefer, they will not always accept food that is not varied. In stances are known in which Leghorn hens on the range refused corn although Brahmas in an adjoining yard accepted the corn very readily. This shows that the instinct of the hens prompts them at times to reject unsuit able food when tbey can secure that which Ib better adapted to their purpose. The active Leghorns on the range found better food than corn for producing eggs while the Brahmas in the yards have no alter...

The retirement of Mr. Gladstone is, I am told, causing a flutter of its own in the Roman Catholic Church. Lord Beaconsfield's prophecy that his rival would die in a monastery or a madhouse is remembered; and the madhouse is not in question. When Manning and Hope Scott seccded from tho Church of England, Mr. Gladstone said he felt as if he had ' lost his two eyes.' Writing to a Catholic correspondent lately in reference to the parting with Manning, Mr. Gladstone says : ' It was not a quarrel, but a death. But I am quite certain that to the last his personal feeling never changed ; and I believe also that he kept a promise mado in 1851 to remember me before God at the most solemn moments— a promise which I greatly valued.' A Roman Catholic newspaper, the Weekly Register, announces that though the failure of eyesight is the immediate occasion of Mr. Gladstone's retirement, his real motive is to have leisure ' to make his soul,' as they say in Ireland.

Sydney Markets. HARBISON, JONES, AND DEVLIN'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

Sydney Markets. HARRISON, JOKES, AND DEVLIN'S REPORT. Wool. — For our fortnightly auction sale held to-day we submitted a catalogue of - 217 bales, the bulk consisting of scoured wools. The general tone experienced was one of uncertainty, brought about by the somewhat doubtful character of circum stances surrounding the London sales juat opened. For all the various classes of wool available values were perceptibly lower than those previously cur rent, and noticeably so in the case of scoured sorts, which as already noted, made up the bulk of the catalogue. Under these unfavourable conditions we thought it best to hold over the larger lots, selling only by auction such parcels of odd ments and greasy odds and ends which it may be said came in for by far the largest share of com petition, and sold relatively to very good advan tage. Since last reporting we have made some large private clearances of local and country fell mongered wools, resulting in our being able to report the sale s...

Does my fever increase?' I asked with solicitude, for my tongue felt twice too larcre for mv mouth. 'No,' said my nurse, laying a cool hand on my burning forehead, and giving me thereby another kind of shock which affected tho heart; 'you are better, much better, but I will not leave you alone a moment until the fever has left. I will make no mistake.' She said tbis bb if speaking to herself. Her singular manner did not inspire me with confidence. She was a young woman, sallow, with great dark, troubled eyes, but as tho landlord had informed me when ha engaged her, the only nurse to be had for love or m jney. 'An' there ain't no need of her workin' out eyther. She has a lot of money that come to her by her husband's death. He were sickly and insured in one of them northern companies that ta...
