A Word for Eastern Civilisation. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887
A Word for Eastern Civilisation. ' A 10 years' stay in Europo has only served to convince mo that no country in the world is so .thoroughly unknown as China.' Tho speaker is General Tcheng-Ki-Teng, military attache of the' Chineso Embassy at tho Gorman Court. ' Wo aro a nation of over 400,000,000 inhabitants, and yet the most erroneous impressions exist concerning us. Bar barians wo can hardly bo called, for our civilisation, although different from that of the West, dates back to a time prior to even the conception of most of those great nations which at present are pre ponderant in tho destinies of the world. It was in China that gunpowder was first invented. I admit, however, that we only know how to make fireworks therewith, and it was not until the Jesuit missionaries taught us that wo learned how to use it for weapons of warfare. Printing was known in China in the ninth century of the Christian era, while a Chinese manuscriptdictionary of the second century gives a description...
Rarey's method of Subduing Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887
Rarej'g method of Mubduing Horses. Iv a discussion on the method adopted by Rarey in subduing restive horses H. C. writes in a Home paper One of my own-horses was an excellent subject for operation. He was '.capable .of consider ably;, more mischief than any average horso, and could bite, kick, run away, or stand immovable without any appearance 3f effort; He was, however, a noble looking animal, and could trot his mile in 2-45 minutes or thereabouts. The teacher first 'placed a \ strap around the Eellock of the front left leg, ' lifted the hoof and strapped the leg firmly to the upper part, leaving, of course, only three logs for locomotion. A stro'ngcord, about 12 feet long, was then attached to tho bailer, and with a carriage whip, standing in the centre, he compelled the horso to travel in a circle continuously. This he kept up relentlessly until the poor animal was in a complete lather of foam, his. eye grew different in expression, and he cer tainly looked a most miserable and...
The Journalist. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887
The Journalist. Tni: following poom, written by Goorgo Eliot, is a beautiful tributo to those whose lives are sacrificed in tho death ranks of journalism, and forms a striking contrast to tho abuso that is showered on thom from loss enlightened quarters : — Man of tho eagor oyes and tooininp brain, Small is tho houour that mon dolo to Uioo, They snatch tlio fruitago of thy years of pain — Dovour — yot scorn tho treo. What though tho treasures of thy norvous forco, Thy rich vitality of mind ana heart, Goes swiftly down boforo thy Moloch coureo, Men ory — It is not art. Tho poot, dallying with his fitful muso, On lagging Pegasus, with halting strido, Somotimes gives out ho scorns tho man of no ws, Cries — See, wo' re parted wido !

The Ruse of a Persian Prince. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887
The Ruse of a Persian Prince. On tho side of a high road to Shiraz, 30 miles before tho city is reached, going north, stand/1 a baro polo. This marks tho placo where tho body of Sergeant Collins was found after his murder. Serseant Collins was an inspector of tho telegraph line, and a man of groat personal bravory. Accompanied by his wife, two servants and two muleteers, ho started on his inspection duties. Collins was hardly convalescent from a fever attack when he started, and ho had no choice in travelling but to lio on a mattress flung on a loaded mule. At early dawn ono day a muleteer suddenly cried, ' Sahib, they have blocked the road ; ' and, looking ahead, tho sergeant saw some men in front who were covering him with their guns. At tho same moment thoso men ordered him to dismount. Now, the Sergeant was tho best shot in Persia. ' Be off ! ' ho shouted, firing his revolver twice. The robbers rushed in, firing as they came ; and Collins was hit in two places, death being insta...
Bowled Out. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 6 May 1887
Bowled Oat. At last they seem to have caught a , Government delinquent — the man who has been selling confidential information ' connected with our Chatham dockyard . to foreigners. The manner of his cap ture would make a good novel of the Lecoq type. A detective from the Cri ; minal Investigation Department of Scot land Yard was set on, and a test plan was resolved upon. Some new and . original fittings were sent to the Chat / ham authorities, and passed to the chief draughtsman's office. In a very short time all tlie supposed confidential facts were in the possession of a gentleman of the American Legation in London. ?The detective traced letters and cheques (,,that . pointed out Mr. Young- Terry as ? the- culprit.

Fast Travelling. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 6 May 1887
Fast Travelling The Mudgee Independent is respon sible for the following : — There was a Yankee commercial traveller in the Mudgee train ^he other evening, and the pace at which the iron horse was jogging seemed to almost distract the gentleman. As usual his characteristic ?humour stood to him. Calling to one ?of the railway men at a station along the. line, he said, 'I say, mate, have you got a cowcatcher on that darn'd engine of youm ?' The railway man, who is a man of Erin, smilingly an swered, ' If coorse we av, and a calf 'catcher, too, if ye loike. Why do ye ax ?' Then came the Yank's opportu nity, and with a sly look at a fellow passenger he drolly upended the railway man. ' Cos, if you have, I guess you'd better unhitch the thing and hang it ou the break-van behind, for I'm darn'd if there isn't danger of a stray cow creeping into the train and biting the passengers at this colonial .pace, the pace that kills.' The whistle then Mew. ? '
A Melbourne Theatrical Scandal [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 6 May 1887
A' Melbourne Theatrical Scandal Our Melbourne correspondent writes : The niouths of the gossips are full of the difference that at present exists between a very old theatrical entrepre neur and the husband and manager for a piquant little lady. The coming of the latter was heralded by a flourish of trumpets that very few people here will be likely to forget. Fetes aud parties were given in her honour, and to wind up all a very nice dinner, to which the stars of tlie theatre and the Press world were invited. The affair was a great success, and everything went as merrily as the ' stage manager's bell.' Then a .shadow arose in the shape of the -caterer's bill. The veteran entrepre neur holds that the ' hubby' should pay for that ,little treat j but this the latter infuses emphatically to do. Law pro ceedings have been threatened, in an swer to which 'hubby' says that if they are persisted in he will send a ? circular to each of the guests demanding « guinea as the price of their dinner...
The New Tariff and Dairying Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 6 May 1887
The New Tnriir and Dairying ? d Industry. Mr. Francis M'Maiion, J.P., nn Ulla dulla district resident, gives utterance to some bcd-rock truths in the following letter to the Ulladulla aud Milton Times. TIi- fifties ill#* nr-nn1ft nf Ill's district: — 'Are you doing anything in refereuce to the proposed tariff ? I see they are alive and doing in Moruya, and if they are not backed up by all the coast dairymen the duty will as suredly be taken off both butter and cheese, and if so it means ruin to the people of the coast. New Zealand has a better climnte, suffers from no drought, pays much less freight than wc do, aud if the duty be taken off, our land will fall in value, and our pigs, bacon, and butter will be shut out from our own market. Freight of a keg of butter from Melbourne and New Zealand is from ] s. to Is. 3d., while we pay 3s. 6d. A bag of potatoes from New Zealand, freight Is., from Ulladulla 2s.

Dairying as a Science. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 6 May 1887
- Dairying as a Science. Befobe the dairyman can be successful in either branch he must draw the line .^.between the breeds that exceed in yields - of milk and those that give milk rich in Scream. The first thing the scientific -dairyman will do is to select the breed for the purpose he may have in view. ' The next will be to food in such a manner - as to secure the largest yield of either milk or butter in proportion to the cost - of /ood, and the cost of the food depends - upon its adaptability for conversion into ?the ingredients entering into the composi . v.tion of milk. Science in dairying doea not stop at the selection of the proper breeds, or the mode of feeding, but also includes the process of management of ..A' the milk and the preparation of the butter, for which the proper facilities should be provided, while the judicious saving of the manure, and its conversion into crops, must be taken as important factors of the enterprise. It is an old maxim that 'the dairyman grad...
