SPANISH FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 June 1879

SPANISH FO WLS. The Spanish fowl is entitled to be regarded as one of our oldest estab :lished-breeds, and is even now perhaps -anore generally known by. report among the non-fancying portion of the Eng lish public than any other. Talk to any man who does not himself keep -fowls, about your own individual craze in that line, whatever it may be, and it is about ten chances to one he speedily breaks in with the remark that "the IBlack Spanish is a fine fowl, sir"- that bird is his idea of excellence in this direction. In the tenth case it will be the Dorking that is named, and these two breeds represent all that is good in poultry to the average British mnind; the splendid large eggs of the ene, and the majestic trussed propor. Aions of the other, appealing alike to his "finer feelings," while their antiquity ministers to that respect for Shereditary descent which is well known to be one of his favorite weaknesses.

YOUTHFUL PRECOCITY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 June 1879

YOUTHFUL PRECOCITY. AN extraordinary story is told by a New Zealand paper of how a little fellow, son of a resident at Marton, who had been sent to a school in England, found his way back to his parents :-"Although but just entering upon his teens, the plucky little man determined to escape from his bondage and work his way back the 16,000 miles, and with that intention started off to tramp to London without a penny in his pocket. Arrived at the Modern Babylon, he succeeded in ingratiating himself with the captain of a vessel trading to Melbourne, who, in return for the child's services as 'Jimmy Ducks,' gave him a pasage to Wellington in one of the steamers. But even then, so near home and happi ness, he found himself still a stranger, penniless, and without help, until a captain of one of the Wanganni steamers gave him a lift to that town. Unfor tunately for the child, there was no more vessels to accept service in lien of a passage-as there were only rail and road whereby to rea=...

THE PATIENT HUSBAND. A TALE FOR THE YOUNGER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 June 1879

THE PATIENT HUSBAND. & TALE FOR THE YOUNGER MEM BERS OF THE FAMILY. Bry E. A Sa?son. "Oh! Agnes, what a stupid little .wife you must be to do such silly things," said Pierre, in an expostula ting tone of voice, but very gently. " Why, you are nothing better than a big goose, and you haven't even so much wit about you as one of those stupid, yet useful birds." "I wish you wouldn't scold me, Pierre, and call me a big goose. It's very unkind of you to give me ugly names, when I do all I can to please you, and make you happy. I'm sure rm very fond of you, and now I see you don't like me at all I wish now I had not married you; my mother never said a cross word to me, and, as for my father, he did nothing but pet me, all day long. If you didn't want me to heal the poor trees, you should have told me so before we set out after the pedlar. And, besides you never once said to me that if one of the cheeses ran away, that I was not to send the other in search of it." And Agnes cried a...

HOW TO GET RICH. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 June 1879

HOW TO GET RICH. SAVING money is a habit that should be formed early in life; saving just a little of what one earns will grow by repeti tion to be part and parcel of one's self. It cannot be helped by-and-by; it becomes a habit of great force. Parents then should take note of this, and start their children in habits that are sound and good. The young man or woman commencing life should be a constant saver of a certain part of what he or she earns, no matter how small the first beginning is. One shilling a week in early youth, saved faithfully and well, will form a habit that will make the after man familiar in the halls of wealth. Things have a cause, and causes have effects. Saving is the cause-riches effect. Now, at this time, no matter what your age, you may start the foundation of a fortune by beginning to save. But whenever anyone is urged to lay apart each week a portion of their wages, the almost universal answer is, " It takes all I earn to support myself and my family; I c...

VICTORIA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 June 1879

VICTORIA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S PLOUGHING MATCH. The annual ploughing match, held under the auspices of the Victoria Agricultural So ciety, was held at the farm of Mr. Short on the Plenty-road, yesterday, and, as is usually the case, attracted a large number of visitors. The prizes offered were of the usual class, and the competitors numbered two in excess of those last year, there being 36 entries in the various classes as compared with 34 last year. The ground provided appeared all that could be desirel when allotted out to the different competitors. but as soon as the ploughs were put in the ground, it was evident that a better finish would have been made had some heavy rain fallen just pre viously, for notwithstanding all the efforts of the ploughmen, the ground was so fine, and fell to pieces so quickly, that it was some what difficult for the judges to arrive at their decision. The boys'work was verywell done, and compare very favourably with the champion work. The champion pr...

The festivities which have celebrated the Emperor of Austria's silver wedding (April 24) have been a pleasant inter lude in the midst of the disquieting business of Europe.
