Singleton Markets. GRAINGER AND FALKINEr's REPORT. I Business in most lines of produce has been brisk during the week. Maize is in better demand. We disposed of 136 bags from 3s 3d to 3s 5d per bushel. We could place three or four trucks at about the same figures.

Wheat at about late rates. Pigs : We penned and sold 202. The market was not qviite so firm as tbe previous week, still highly satisfactory prices ruled throughout.

CARE OF MARES AND COLTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

CARE OF MARES AND COLTS. Well ordered work is not an injury to snares with suckling colts, but conditions arise in the rush of farm labor, which make great care neoessary in order to avoid serious injury both to mnre and colt. Overheating the dam by violent exercise in the middle of the day is one of these, but it does not repre sent all the danger. In the hurry of his work the driver of the team is often inclined to a iiacuous nauuung oi nis noraes, wicn a resulting use of the whip and harsh words and tones that fret and often ..greatly excite the nervous system of mores in milk, the nervous system being particu larly sensitive, at this time, to disturbing causes. It is very well known to intelligent dairymen that harshness, in the treatment of cows, is at once followed by a decrease in the quantity, both of milk and butter, and that too, where the harshness is not accompanied by blows. What mty be thought then of the effect upon the milk producing organs of the mare by the use of ...

A DARING GAME. CHAPTER II. A DECISIVE MOVE COMMANDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

A DARING GAME. CHAPTER II. X DECISIVE MOVE COMMANDED. Sir Harold aiid Lady Wynde ate their wedding breakfast in BloomBbury Square, at the house of Lady Wynde's miserly aunt, Mrs. Hyde. A few of the baronet's friends were present. The absence of Sir Harold's daughter was not especially re marked save by the father, who longed with an anxious longing to see her face smiling upon him, and to hear her young voice whispering congratula tions upon his second marriage. Neva had been i oanofimllv'roar nnrl rionr fcn liim TTar mnf.lipr linil died in her babyhood, and he had been both father and mother to his girl.

On a Rational Training of Juvenile Minds. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

On a Rational Training of i Juvenile Minds. I [By Fkithiof.] Perhaps there is no social problem tho satisfactory solution of which is of a more vital importance to the normal progress of our race than the practical training of tbe minds as well as bodios of tho growing generation. Albeit in this century, great strides havo been taken towards the accomplishment and improve ment of educational systems, for a thorough and practical training of the urowine masses in most civilized countries, — still there remains obviously much to be done in t ho way of promoting universal, practical (above all), and also theoretical training, before the multitudes shall bo suitably prepared for such fundamental social reforms as hitherto, by many, have been stigmatized as Utopian dreams. It is true that the present inequitable distribu tion of labour and its reward, — and also the rapid increase in population, and consequent augmentation of labour and keenness of competition, raise formidable obstacles...

Domestic Hints and Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

Domestic Hints and Recipes, i Try turpentine for grease on velvet or cloth. ' The stewpan that boils much wastes the flavour. Remove ink from boards with muriatic acid afterwards washing with water. \ ' A house is no Iioubo unless it contains food and fire for the mind ns woll na flio lm/Kr \ Try one ounce of borax, two ounces of shellac, one pint of boiling water, for a glue or cement. Cucumber is said to be efficacious in destroying cockroaches. Pieces should bo laid about the floor and shelves. A little alcohol will do wonders in brightening glass. Turpentine is excellent for washing sinks which have become dull and dirty. Remove marking ink from linen with a solution of cyanuret of potassium, applied with a camel's h&ir brash, and rinsed in cold water. j

To Prevent Bee Stings. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

To Prevent Bee Stings. It is a fact not generally known that if one holds his breath wasps, bees, and hornets can be handled with impunity. The skin becomes stingproof, and holding the insect by the foet and giving her full liberty of action you can see her drive her weapon against the impenetrable surface with a force which lifts her body at every stroke, but let the smallest quantity of air escape from the lungs and the sting will penetrate at once. I have never seen an ex ception to this in twenty-five years' observation. I have taucht young ladies with very delicate hands to astonish their friends by the performance of this feat, and I saw one so severely stung as to require the services of a physician through laugh ing at a witty remark of her sister, forgetting that laughing required breath. For a theory in ex planation I am led to believe that holding the breath partially closes the pores of the skin. My experiments in that direction have not been exact enough to be of any sc...

No Such Station. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

No Such Station, A traveller of experience says: 'Never worry because yon cannot speak the language of the country you are in. Speak English, and the people will get your meaning if there's any money in it. Use signs instead of words, and yon will be sur prised to see how well you get on.' In this matter, however, a little knowledge is not a dangerous but a very valuable thing. In ' Mexico,' T. L. Rogers describes crossing a line which, though imaginary, is one that every schoolboy and schoolgirl has b«ard about. At half-nasfc five we rpfinli nufi'nrv.-'/ nnd nf tinlf past six are due at Fresnillo. Between these stations lies that mysterious line which we have read about but never have seen , the Tropic of Cancer. When the major reminded the boys of this fact, they said they must get up to see that line. 'We don't cross a tropic every day, and we should be showing disrespect to geography if we didn't turn out to meet it,' said the captain. ' So be it,' said the major, ' we'll make s...

The Next Pope. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

The Mext Pope. Although thero is no imminent danger of the Pope's death, the friends of Leo XIII. are full of anxiety, says the Rome correspondent of the Chronicle. The disappearance of a Pontiff who has mingled the Bacred mission of an evangelist with at least the beginnfng3 of Christian arbitration would be a grave calamity. Under the shadow of its gradual approach, however, there can be nothing disrespectful in retailing the reverent gossip of the Rome of to-day on the subject of the next Pope. This is always chastened by the proverb that the Cardinal who goes into the Conclave as Pontiff r-G ZLn ninrttoTAo fllO f.lfLrfV* The dissection of the Sacred Collego with this end in view is always useful. If not an augury of the future, it at least reveals symptoms capable of en lightening any careful observer of European affairs. For the present, it enables one to start by saying that there is no indication as yet of a foreign Pope, although the eventuality may bo looked upon as one of ...

A Monarch's Extravagance. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

A Monarch's Extravagance. Ono of the most remarkable sights in Europe to an American is tho number of magnificent royal palaces in Bavaria. The Alte Resident! was built by the first King Ludwig in Munich, and was in tended to surpass the palace at Versailles, into which le grande monarque, Louis XIV., concen trated the splendor and glory of his reign. The palace in Munich contains a series of vast halls, in which the first astists of Europe have embodied in statues and pictures the history of Bavaria from the fabulous eras of the world until now. There aro also suites of magnificent apart ments, with theatres and chapels. The late King Ludwig, not satisfied with this home, built three palaces for his own uso, in which ho made real his wildest dreams of beauty. Lindenhof is a small, exquisite building of black marble. The apartments aro hung with Gobelin taposty, and contain many priceless works of art ; , but the castle was intended to be only a lodge from which to view the gardens,...

Language of Signs. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Language of Signs. In ordinary life it is not to be expected, however occasionally desirable, that expression should super sede speech ; but thero havo been exceptional cases, writes Mr. James Payn, where the substitu tion of pantomime for language even at home has been found exceedingly advantageous. A young lady who had a deaf-and-dumb brother taught her lover the Bign language, which it is possible also came in useful on their own aocount. At a reason able interval after man iage, the huiband got leave to go out one night to his club. When she had wished him good-night, and retired to her chamber, it was not the solitude the wife expected to find it, for a man stepped out from the window-curtain, pistol in hand, and observed : ' I want your jewels and anything elso valuable that comes handy.' As she was collecting . them with trembling fingers and transferring them to hia custody, she heard a latch-key in the front door — a noise which also reached the ears of the robber. ' That ...
