London Colonial Wool Sales. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

London Colonial Wool Sales. The second series of auctions of colonial wool for this year, which commenced on February 27, closed on March 16. The net available stock to offer waa by no means heavy, write Messrs. Jacomb, Son, and Co., but importers have not been tempted to expose uiuie Lutiu IU pur CcJU I;. Ol lu, UUU Or CUBE 1Z,UUU bales now remain unsold. Of the quantity disposed of fully 60 per cent, has been taken for export, oE which only about 1,000 to 1,500 was for the U.S.A. The attendance and competition has been good, and fairly uniform throughout j no wide fluctuations have occurred, and the same general features have prevailed from first to last. ' Par example,' the comparatively poor values offered for merino wool of the highest quality, as compared with those for medium and good in grease, which have sold Bteadily well up to previous auction values j tho free market and high prices for any superior lambs' ; the relatively lower currency for merino wools of all grades in...

DUNGOG SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

DUNGOG SHOW. [By our own Reporter.! I The eighth exhibition of the Williams River Agricultural and Horticultural Association has been added to tlie past and left behind it very pleasant memories of a highly successful reunion which was alike a credit to the management and a monument to the prosperity, wealth - and industry of the district. Dungog shows in previous, years have been invariably wet, indeed the Association was so disheartened by continued unfavourable weather that early this season tbe members seriously considered the advisableness of disband ing the Society, but fortunately wiser counsels prevailed, and it was determined to make one more trial before giving up the ghost as it were. The result was that beautiful weather prevailed for the function on Wednesday and Thursday, and the show was the most genuinely pleasant and suc cessful ever held at Dungog. As we have previously recorded, Wednesday morning broke somewhat dull and a heavy, gloomy fog lay over everything like...

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

Sporting Notes and Notions. I [Bt the Vagrant.] lord Roaebery .would not be the First Prime Minister who had owned the firBt favourite for the Derby, and we hopo that he will not be the laat. We deem it will not be taken aaan omen heralding the defeat of Ladas when we mention that the Derby has never been won by a man who was First Minister of the Crown at the time, though Lord Derby was very near it in 1S58, when Toxophilite started at 100 to 30 and was beaten by a length by BeadBman. Lord Palmerston ran a fairly good horse called Baldwin for tho Derby of 1863, won by Macaroni, since which date no Prime Minister or ex-Prime Minister has been represented in the race. Although the thoroughbred horse Cadogan, whose death was brought about by an accident in Queens land a few days ago, was a fair animal himself, be never sired anything of much merit. He was one of the first of Cremorne's get, and was a very ordinary looking fellow. He made his cUlut as tho ?'Chance colt' in the Wadcote ...

"Lochaber no More." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

'Lochaber no More.' ' Lochaber no more' which is given below, iB by Allan Ramsay, and is one of the most pathetic and unaffected of the songs of Scotland. It is said to have had such an effect on one of our Highland regimentsjwhen quartered in the West Indies as to produce that form of melancholy which in scientific parlance is called nostalgia, or home-sickness. In this case an order had to be issued that the tune should not in future be played in the hearing of the regiment. Highlanders are said to be particu larly liable to the malady. In some instances it has been known to terminate in general paralysis and very generally in exhaustion of the nervous system. Tho disease iB likewise common among African slaves who have been forcibly carried away from their native land, and must be the affection to which Dr. Livingstone refers, in his ' Last Jour nal,' where he speaks of it as a new disorder, and names it ' broken-heartedness' — there being no physical cause to otherwise account f...

' You see, I ? ' ' One minute, your honour — allow me to explain,' exclaimed Mr. Buxton. ' It is like this. We have one child, a year and a half old, and twins, which are six months old, small cherubs both of them ; their mother's pug-nose and my handsome features ? ' 'And his red hair,' interrupted Mrs. Buxton. ?' Before we were married, she always said it was chesnut brown, but it matters not. Yesterday she went to attend a committee meeting of the Ladies' Aid Society. I stayed at home with the children. Three children, your Honour ! I have not three arras. When two of them screamed, I had to lay the third one down and carry the two. Then the one I had laid down commenced, so I picked him up and laid down one of the others. But then that one began.

The Farm and Garden. INFLUENCE OF FOOD ON THE QUALITY OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

The Farm and Garden. f INFLUENCE OF FOOD ON THE QUALITY OF irar. In the new number of the Journal of the British Dairy Farmers' Association there ia a capital article by Mr. John Spier on the now keenly disputed question as to how far good feeding will improve the quality and increase the quantity of a cow's milk. We are re minded that amone farmers Generally it haH long been considered an accepted truth that the use of certain foods, such as young grass, roots, brewers' grains, caused an increased flow of milk at the expense of a decreased quality, while the use of other foods, such as cotton and linseed-cake, bbans, »etuhes, &e., improved th« quality as well as increased the quantity. It has up to a late period been alsn believed that a short supply of food — oven the bpst kind of food — muBt necessarily give milk of the lowest grade, and that the eame de»- , cription of food supplied in greater quantity will give milk of a much higher quality. Mr. Spier is one of those wh...

GlSETA MINBES' LODGE. The usual weekly meeting of the above took place in North's Hall on Wednesday morning. Owing to the absence of the regular chairman, Mr, Connolly was elected as such, pro tern. About 25 apologies were rsad from members unable to attend, one of which caused considerable amuse ment, the writer stating he had too ' muchee workee to do.' The Chairman said he could not entertain the apology as it was only making ridicule ?of the meeting. The whole of the apqlogies, with thiB exception, were approved of. The roll was then called, and several members were fined for non-attendance. Mr. Jackson here made his appearance, and at once took the chair.

GOULBURN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

GOULBURN RIVER. Oar farmers are busy ploughing ; new paddocks are being cleared and fenced in for cultivation; double furrow ploughs and new machinery are being im ported into the neighbourhood ; and, believing in the old adage, that 'God helps those who help themselves,' all are buBy as bees. As a sign of the constant occupation of all, you scarcely ever hear ' politics mentioned ; and we believe if a general election was pending at once, hardly half the community would leave their work to record their votes. Of course, we know political apathy pervades all classes throughout the country districts: numbers seem hardly to care about voting at all ; but at the present time they seem incapable of giving a thought to anything beyond getting their crops in. The country about here looks splendid. We never remember seeing such a fine show of feed at this time of the year, for the nights are very cold, and winter is making its appearance. The often-recurring freshes in the river are severe...

Itcniiiiisccisces of Maitland and the District. IVo- 20.— 1853. Who ia tbsre that does not remember Jimmy Aehton of circus fama ? Well, a little incident that happened to him in Maitland in 1853 ia worth recording. He was a clever manager, a daring horseman, and alwaya had in his mind's eye a method of advertining which is not perhnpB excelled in these days. One evening just before dusk he announced his intention of ridinc for an alleged wn^er of £50 three barebacked horBes from Whit tacker's Metropoliton Hotel, Bust Maitland, to the Northumberland Hotel, Went Mait land, within fifteen minntes. The onnounco' ment had been made in the circus ring some nights previously, and aa was expected drew forth on the occasion large crowds of people, who lined the roadway on either side to wit ness the sensational performance. Punctually to time Ashton, dressed phantastically in circus costume, mounted the thrue steeds and amidst great cheering from the spectators started from the hotel. When h...
