THE SHORTHORN MANIA IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 27 October 1875

THE SHORTHORN MANIA AMERICA. The Chicago Journal's letter Wau kogou, III., says:—"Hon M. H. Cochrane, member of the Canadian Senate from the province of Qnebeo, and Simon Beattle, of Whitevaile, province of Ontario, have just pur chased from George Murray, Racine, Wis., about one-half of his select herd of shorthorns. The purchase is said ' to bo the largest in amount ever made at a private sale in this country, in cluding in all fourteen head, among them six females of the celebrated Ductless tribe and eight femalos of other choice popular families. The prico paid for the lot is not as yet mado public, but must bo in the vicinity of 100,000 dollars, for it is a well understood fact that soon after the great New York Mills sales, hbld near Utica, N.Y., in September, a year ago, Mr. Murray refused 15,000 dollars eacb for the six Duchesses of Slawsondalo, which are included in the purchase. The cattle will be shipped in a day or so to Mr. Cochrane's farm at Hill hurst, Canada. Peculia...

NEW METHOD OF MEAT-PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 27 October 1875

I NEW METHOD OP MEAT-PKB SEBVING. At Florence a Mr. Hortzon has re ported the result of researches be Las made into the subject of the preserva tion of moat, and claimod to have dis covered an inoffensive chemical mix ture by means of -which meat may bo preserved fresh for a long period of time. A piece of beef plunged into this liquid, and placed for two months in a hothouso, failed to show the least alteration. An entire ox was out up in England, preparod and forwarded by Mr, Hertzen to Buenos Ayres, and thonce reshipped to Londou. Though the meat had made a double voyage in equatorial and tropical regions, it was found to have retained the color and flavor of fresh meat. Mr. Hertzen exhibited and presented to the Society of Medicine at Florence a glass vase containing a piece of moat, of which a half was soaked in tho liquid. The other half, which had not been dealt with, was covered with mould, and might bo said to have perished, but tho part which was submerged was in no respec...

VICTORIA AND RIVERINA. (Melbourne Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 27 October 1875

VICTORIA 'AND RIVE BIN A. (Melbourne Herald.) Sermons are generally founded on texts. Wo will select as ours the fol lowing, which appeared as a telegram early this week iu the morning news papers :—"The Tararua sailed for Mel bourne, from Victor Harbor, with 600 bales of Darling River wool. This only arrived from Goolwa ou Wednesday, and will ho in Melbourne quicker than via Echuca." That wool should bo taken from the outormost districts of tho Darling, brought down tho Murray past Echuca, shipped to Victor Harbor, and then transhipped to Melbourne, must somowhat stagger us, and yet this does not surprise us. Wo pointed out in the Herald some time ago, that unless a railway wore carried ou from Horsham to Wontworth or Euston, wo might expect to lose a great part of our Darling trade, for it is understood that if much produce is shipped to Victor Harbor that port will soon feel its feot, and tho wool will be sent from t thence direct to England, wbilo ®^P* | plies will be obtained d...

The solitary, pedestrian , was evidently bent on sketching; for in one haiid she car ried a sketching-book and paint-box, in (he other a small camp-stool. It was no other than the rich Miss Bullion) whose wealth so many suitors had gonoroiisly offered to share, and whoso hand none had succeeded in obtaining. She had noticed on this, her last visit to Raiuham Park, that young Captain Helter—who had come down on a visit previously with his fidns Achates, Captain Skelter, and n few more brother officers — was not only unusually attentive to her, but had thrown out dark bints about un requited affection, and had also been much addictod to heavy sighs and tender glances.
