ALEXANDER BECCE, Chief Inspec tor of Stock, New South Wales, has I written a very interesting article on " Judging Sheep by Points," and this article is published in the Agricultural | Gazette. Mr. BB0CE declares that under the present system of judging sheep at exhibitions, errors are of frequent occurrence, and that a wide divergence of opinion now prevails among acknowledged judges UB to the value of the different points and qualities of sheep. Sheep owners who have exhibited at recent shows of the VTaraihon Pastoral Society will readily endorse this statement for judges have been officiating, who, if invited to explain whjr they decided in favor of one sheep against another were quite at a loss to give more than a general reason for the preference shown; and there is no doubt that what has happened at Aramac takes place at other shows.

CHAPTER VI. ACCIDENTAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 August 1892

CHAPTER VI. ACCIDENTAL. When dinner w«6 over, Lady Theobald rose, and proceeded to the drawing-room, Lucia following in her wake. From her very babyhood, Lucia had disliked the draw ing-room, which was an imposing apart ment of great length and height, containing much maSBive furniture, upholstered in faded blue satin. All the girl's evenings, since her fifib year, had been spent sitting opposite her grandmother, in one of tbe siraightest blue chairs; all the mostscathing reproofs she had received had been adminis tered to her at such times. She had a secret theory, indeed, tliBt all unpleasant things occurred in the drawing-room after dinner. Just as they had seated themselves, and Lady Theobald was on tbe point of drawing towards her the little basket, containing tbe grey woollen mittens she made a duty of employing herself by knitting each evening, Dobson, the coachman, in bis character of footman, threw open the door, and an nounced a visitor. " Captain Barold." . Lady Theobald ...

CHAPTER V. LUCIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 August 1892

CHAPTER V. LUCIA. In this manner Slowbridge received the shock which shook it to its fonndations, and it was a shock from which it did not recover for some time. Before ten o'clock the next morning, everybody knew of the arrival of Martin Bassett's daughter. The very boarding-school (Miss Pitcher's select seminary for young ladieB," combining the comforts of a home," as the circular said, " with all the advantages of genteel educa tion") was on fire with it, highly colored versions of the stories told being circnlated from the " first-class" downward, even taking the form of an Indian princess, tattoed bine, and with difficulty restrained from indulg ing in warwhoops-which Ust feature so larmed little Miss Bigbee, aged qpven, that retired in fear and trembling, and shed nder the bed-clothes, her terror and being mnch increased by the stirring f scalping stories by pretty Miss f the 'first class-a young person ~eed a vivid imagination and de in romances of b tragic torn. not the slig...

1 MB !WM. By Frances Hodgson Burnett, Author of " That Lass o' Lowrie's," " Little Lord Fauntleroy," etc. CHAPTER IV. XiADY THEOBALD. kH dear!" she exclaimed nervously, " there is Lady Theobald." Lady Theobald, having been making calls of state, was returning home rather later than usual, whcu, in driving up High street, her eye fell upon Miss Bassett's garden. She put up her eyeglasses, and gazed through them, severely; then she issued a mandate to her coachman. " Dobson," she said, " drive mce slow) v." She could not believe the evident or her eyeglasses. In Miss Bassettjs garden she saw a tall girl " dressed," as^he put it," like an actress," her delicate dr&gs trailing upon . the grass, a white lace scjt{f about her head »nd shoulders, rnj^s that scarf, roses at ifer waist, *?' " kfifivens!" she exclaimed ; " is Belinda Bnssett giving a party, without so much as mentioning it to met" Then she issued another mandate.

Original Poeting. By the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 August 1892

By the Sea. There's an old fellow, scraggy and grey, With a carpet bag swung in his hand, And off to the pier he is making his way With his daughter along the wet sand. For a week I have watched them at play, On the beach or the tide-revealed rocks; He, dressed in his sloppy old garments of grey. She, shining in fairy-white frocks. He has gathered her shells ; he has made Great castles of sand by the sea; He has sat by her shoes when it pleased her to Like a lien with one cliickcn was he. [wade ; But, alas, for their holiday gone; Now the steamer is there at the pier; She whistles ; they hurry aboard ; she moves So their vision dissolves for the year, [on Afar on the glimmering bay. She sinks to a smoke-trailing speck, Still standing, perhaps, and still watching arc By the rail at the stern of the deck. [they Still watching the sun-flooded land, And those white dots-the houses-recede. I'or there will the scenes of their happiness Though they to the multitude speed, [stand,

SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 August 1892

SECOND DAT. The racing on the second day was even better than on the first; although the fields were not quite so large, there were more interesting events. The attendance of course was not so good as on the public holiday, but still there were many moro people on the ground than the lured conveyances could carry. There was no lack of amusement beyond racing, for, in addition to the boxing booth aud roulette tables, tbo whistling oripplo collected several pounds, and a elerer purse seller made many sovereigns by dis posing of pluses at £1 apiece, cnch apparently containing three gold coins. The number of people who declared thoy were the fortunate recipients of the trio of sovereigns was con siderably in excess of those who discovered the purchased purses contained only three shillings. Mr. Feel did a good trade at the new bars, and the Stewards' luncheon room was liberally patronised. The building, how ever, is not largo enough, and might be extended another 20 feet. The stand also...
