The means of ascent were by a couple of cases of galvanised iron, which were leaning against the wall, and the battens fastened across, which formed a kind of ladder. From the top of the cases the burglars must have got on to the piping, and, standing on that, could easily reach the window. A. pane of glass was smashed, and the latch unfastened through the aperture. The burglar was not too- care ful, apparently, for liberal bloodstains on the glass and inside showed that in putting his arm through the broken pane he had cut himself. It is very, evident that the culprits had made themselves thoroughly acquainted with the run of the place before entering upon their...

COLD AT NEW GUINEA. -', The Brisbane Courier has a telegram - from its Cooktown correspondent, dated ' 21btT),eceiEber, as follows : — The schooner - Ivanhoe arrivtd from New Guinea, via Woodlark and other islands, last evening The Ivanhoe brought 750oz. of gold, 26 bass beche-de-mer. and 28 ca-es of pearl shell. Several miners have been await ing the arrival of the Ivanhoe in order to . proceed to Woodlark Island by her Some - excitement was caused in town when it became known that the vessel had brought over so much gold, the sup position being that it all came from Woodlark Island, but inquiries show that only 200oz. came from Woodlark, the.re mainder coming chiefly from St. Aignan acd Sudest. Eepor.s from Woodlark, however, are favourable, and the men there are said to be doing well. Al though it would be extremely inadvisable for a large number of men to proceed t - the field, the miners here are determined to leave tor Woodlark in. the Ivanhoe wexfc week.

The ' Thistle ' milking machine is without doubt a very decided improve iwonl4 s\n nntr nnnimnna /\P 4-Ka lyin/1 f no£ has hitherto been exhibited in the colony. It milks the cows quite clean, and appar ently with comfort to the animals, a^they stand quietly chewing the cud while the milk is being drawn from them. A man and two boys can operate the machine on almost any number of cows, and with about 20 cans 100 cowa can be milked in one hour. Bach individual cow is milked dry in from four to six minutes, and of course it i* only a question of providing sufficient cans in order to milk 100 cow* in the same time as one can be milked. The point where the 'Thistle ' machine differs chiefly from its predecessors is in the pulsating motion, which is created by. an air-pump, and resembles very closelv the action ...

The land eminently adopted to its growth is a Bandy loam. In the preparation of the land it is necessary to plough, pulverise, and -level to an even surface.. Twenty to twency-uve pounutj oi- etjuu iu tuo.-u.uio are sufficient. The seed is sown broad ' -'cast the same a3 grain, and the ground is ? harrowed sufficiently to cover 'all the Beed. Pigs will thrive on green, thrifty - fllfala, but will not fatten. Horses do well, but sheep injure the plant. For cattle it is about the same valuw as .clover. The first year it. is not usually cut either for bay or seed, but subse quently where the soil and climate is eui* able, from five to seven cuttings can be obtained ea6h year, the average yield -being about 1£ tons to the acre.
