Disquietude at tbe political prospect muy be reasonably entertained in connection with the anaouocfmecit that Mr. Bruce Smith and Mr, John 'W *rit feel it impossible for tbem to offer themnelves for re-election to the Assembly. Mr. 'Bruce Smith's position is that bo ennnot consistently with a sense of hi« duty to bunaelf and his rurally continue to sit in a Legislature which never takes n recess of axtj length — which practically is always in ? session. Professional men, merchants, and olbers who have private affairs to attend' to, could manage also to;give some attention to affairs of -state, when' Parliament eat about four months out of tbe twelve.

Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Queenslander, May 12.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Quccnslandcr, May 12.) There is little to report in connection with pastoral matters this week. Generally the weather has been fine and mild, with occasional light showers in some districts— just tho sort of weather to usher in a perfect winter for stock. Letters received from the Barcoo country state that graziers there are experiencing the best season for some years, and the same may be said of most of the other Western districts. On the coast for several years past the seasons have boon as near perfection as it is possible to get, and there is as yet no sign tbat the good time is drawing near an end. Toowoojiba, May 9. — There was a good deal o£ lightning to-night, and a smart shower of rain fell at 9 o'clock. C.vnooLTur.E, May 4. — Wo had heary showers on the evening of the 2nd instant, and tho roads which were rapidly improving are again in a bad state. Yesterday the weather was cold and fine.

"The Dismal Throng." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

* The Dismal Throng.' Mr. Robert Buchanan, who is happiest when criticising his literary contemporaries, contributes to the Idler the following stanzas, entitled ' The Dismal Throng,' They were written, he says, ' after reading the last Study in Literary Distemper.' A prose note appended to the verses contains this declara tion : ' These verses refer to a literary pne nomenon that will in time become historical, that phenomenon being that sudden growth, in all parts of Europe, ot a fungus-literature bred of foulness and decay ; and contem poraneously, the intrusion into all parts of human life of a Calvinistio yet materialistic morality. This literature of a sunless deca dence has spread widely, by virture of it own uncleauness, and its leading characteristics are gloom, ugliness, prurience, preaehiness, and weedy flabbiness of style. That it has not flourished in Great Britain, Bave among a small and discredited cockney minority, is due to the inherent manliness and vigour of the n...

SEASONABLE WEED KILLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

SEASONABLE WEED KHIINS, An American farmer, writing to the Agri culturist on the subject of seasonable weed killing, supplies some hints which might be easily made applicable to New South W ales. He says : — The weed question resolves itself into a few distinct points, attention to which will save a world of wasted toil. In the first place a farmer must find out how to do the work at wholesale. Manual labour can never cope with such a Herculean task. We must find I some way to kill by the acre, and to do this successfully we must get firm hold of the first ! principles of plant life. Many farmers who have reaped one crop, of which a third was weeds, deliberately start in the au^nmn to plough nnder all the ripe seeds which were shed by that weed crop. That seed is simply em balmed when thus buried under a few inches of soil, and though a portion may decay, enough will remain sound to supply a heavy j growth the next time they are brought near | the surface, where air and moisture and...

The Farm and Garden. CROP BOUND FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

The Farm and Garden. j chop bousd fowis. An English writer says : Fowls are very liable to it, not only through ove. feeding, but from the stuff they pick np and eat, which they should not. There are several things : which may be avoided, where people only keep a few fowls, to prevent their birds from being j croD-bound. It occurs more frequently with i those who live in towns and who have a garden, than with those who live in the country. I often seen people pull np a little bunch of long grasB that was growing on their garden path and throw it into the poultry. When these pieces are throwB in to the birds they are almost sure to pick it np, and this is one thing which causes stoppage in the crop. A number of pieces of long grass, as soon as the fowl swallows them, become a hard substance when pnt in a small compass, especially when it is very coarse grass. It gets over tbe pass age leading to the gizzard, and stopB the food from passing, consequently irritation is set np in the cr...

The Charm of the Desert. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

The Charm of the Desert. Sir Bichard Burton thus describes the charm of the desert : — ' In such circumstances the mind is influenced through the body. Though your mouth glows, and your skin is parched, yet you feel no languor— the effect of humid heat ; your lungs are lightened, jour sight brightens, your memory recovers irs tone, and your spirits become exu berant. Your fancy and imagination are power fully aroused, and the wildness and sublimity of the scenes around you stir up all the energies of your soul, whether for exertion, danger, or strife. Your moralp improves j you become frank and cordial, hospitable, and single-minded ; the hypocritical politeness and the slavery of civilization are left behind you in tho city. Your senses are quickened ; they require no stimulants but air and exorcise; in the desert Bpirituous liquors excite only disgust. There is a keen enjoyment in mere animal existence. The sharp appetite disposes of the moat indigestible food ; the sand is softer...
