THE TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE MOON. To ilic Editor of tlic Evening News. Sir,— The lunar eclipse of the 17-18th instant was remarkably well seen here. The moon was overspread with a very thin filmy cloud till about 11. 43, but the diminution of her brilliancy was very slight from that cause. She remained unclouded during the rest of the phenomenon. No decided defalcation of light was noticed on the moon's eastern limb till 10.41, but at 10.52 the effects of the penumbra were very marked.

IS CUT OR UNCUT HAY THE BEST? [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 21 January 1870

IS CUT OB UNCUT KAY THE BEST? Tuk question whether it is better to cut hay into chaff or to feed it to cattle in its long state, is one that has lately excited much discussion and difference of opinion in England aud America. The report of tbe United States Department of Agriculture states that many and careful experiments have been made in keeping horses upou cut and uncut food, but no very definite conclusion lias been couie to, or at least lias not been authoritatively announced as to the relative advant ages of each method. Some experimentalists are very strongly in favour of cut hay, while others are equally positive that uncut hay is most advantageous. The truth is, that under some circumstances, nnd for some purposes one way is best, while the other method, under other circumstances aud for other purposes, may be preferable. Thomas S. Lang, Esq., the author of an Agricultural Essay which gained a prize, reports that he has made several thorough and caret id trials in keeping ...
