POULTRY RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 2 October 1875
POULTRY RAISING. The following rules for raising poultry are from the Pouttry World, and are commended to our readers as being as applicable here as in the At lantic States : — If you 'begin by purchasing eggs for hatching, order tbem from some reliable breeder nearest to your own locality, and thus save the perils inci dental to their transportation from a long distance. Always set yonr henff in the evening rather than by daylight. They will be more eure to stick to the nest afterwards. And for two or three days at first be careful that they are kept undisturbed. If you can make your nests upon the ground, do so. If not, place a iresb cut sod at the bottom of your box, and sprinkle sulphur or coarse snuff into it to keep off vermin. Scatter powdered sul phur through the hen's under feathers, also during the period of setting. She must be kept free from lice. ? This mode of treatment is a good one for her comfort, as well as that of the chickens. Re move your hen daily, let her roll...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 2 October 1875
The country is as yet without any intimation of the date at which, to use the stereotyped phrase, Parliament will meet for despatch of business. Whether the Ministers have not yet recovered their exhausted energies after the labours of the past session, or think that the struggles of the coming one may be safely postponed a little longer, they very wisely beep their counsel to themselves, and make no sign. That an Appropriation Act will be passed before the commencement of the year to which it relates may be considered now as utterly hopeless. That the opposition will be reticent enough to allow the present Go vernment, to continue in the enjoyment of office, however satisfactory to the Ministers, can scarcely be expected from the needy as pirants to official emoluments. The colony will expect that during the ensuing 6ession the great question of electoral representation will receive from the Legis lature the attention which its importance demands, and that some successful attempt w...
EXTRAORDINARY AND SENSATIONAL RUMOURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 2 October 1875
Extraordinary and Sensational Rumours. Public attention has been drawn to the members of a firm in this city whose recent vicissitudes have been somewhat startling. Upon the arrival of the last Californian mail it was freely reported and implicitly believed that one of the partners had come into the title of Lord Blayney and £25,000 a year. Tlie next occasion for wonder was the sudden death of the other partner, an event which might not have caused any special comment but for a third report more startling than any of the preceding. It was to the effect that the newly created lord had been arrested for debt, and lodged safely in Darlinglmrst gaol ; and now a fourth rumour lias obtained currency so very sensational that we decline to circulate it. It is 6tated, however, that the surviving partner was a passenger for Guam by the schooner Fanny Wright, delayed last week by a collision in the harbour, and the, to him, unfortu nate occurrence must have been very provoking. Submarine Cable...

' Chinamen and horses,' writes the Palmer correspondent of the Brisbane Courier, ' are dying like rotten sheep on the new trick between Cook town and Edwardstown. I have just got over the journey, and can therefore 6peak from experience. The Chinese appear to have an impression that the dead should bury their dead ; or, at any rate. sucli is tlieir horror ot hatidlmg a dead uody that they would submit to' almost any sacrifice in order to get outxjf the business. The scene that presented itself to my companion and myself as we surmounted the hillock and looked down on the valley below us, some fifteen miles from Little's Camp, was as follows :— Two Chinamen lay dead and unburied on the ground, while some half-score of tlieir countrymen were huddled together in a terror-stricken mob, a police inspector covering them with a six-shooter, and a trooper doing the. same thing with a Snider. The two dead Chinamen and the rest were mates travelling together; and it appeared that when the two...

A TEETOTAL ANECDOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 9 October 1875
A TEETOTAL ANECDOTE. Somewhere in a pleasant district lives a small farmer of such social habits that his coming home intoxicated was once no unusual thing. His wife urged him in vain to sign tlie pledge. 'Why, you see,' he would say, 'I'll sign it after a while ; but I don't like to break right off at once ; it ain't wholesome. Tlie best way always is to git used to a thing by desrrees. von know.' ' Very well, old man,' his helpmate would rejoin, ' see now if you don't fall into a hole one of these days, while you can't take care of your self, and nobody near to take you out.' | Sure enough, as if to verify the prophecy, a couple of days after, returning from a glorious frolic, the old fellow reeled into his own well, and after a deal of useless scrambling shouted for the il light of his eyes' to come and help him out. ' Didn't I tell you so ? ' said the good soul, showing her cap-frill over the edge of the parapet. ' You've got into a hole at Jast,*and it's only lucky I'm in heari...

Determined to take time by the forelock the inhabitants of Goulburn and Argyle are agi tating for the abolition of tolls throughout the colony, and have solicited the assistance of the surrounding districts to enable them to attain their object in the ensuing session of Parliament. Seeing that the inhabitants of Burrowa are blessed with roads, upon the traffic of which no Minister, without making himself a laughing-stock, could possibly im pose a toll, it cau scarcely be expected that any very deep interest should be felt here about this grievance ; but although at present confined to the Great Southern Road, the tolls are a tax upon our means of communi cation which should be abolished if shown to l)e detrimental to the public interest. -? The theory of tolls is undeniably correct ; it is plain that the people for whose advan tage the road is made should pay at least a considerable share, if not the whole, of the cost of its maintenance in repair ; and thus it seems at first a very...
