POULTRY NOTES. Orpingtons and Wyandottes. AT DRUMMORNE. MR. L. L. RAMSAY'S BIRDS. If the man who is looking out for good representatives of fashionable Poultry breeds, takes one of the Parramatta steamers, and voyages to Drummoyne Wharf, he will find himself within reasonable distance of what he started out to find. A few minutes' walk, in a. fionth.wfinterlv direction, will brine him to the pens of Mr. L. L. Ramsay, the owner of Orpington and Wyandotte fowls whose renown has spread over all Australia. AFhze Pbssb reporter called opon Mr. Ramsav the other day ; and had a short ohat and a glance at the famous birds in their yards. Here it may ^be said,' appropriately, perhaps, that buyers, or others, who wish to talk ' poultry, and eggs,' with the Orpington-man may find him ip the city in the day-time, at 66, Pitt street (a few doors south of The Exohange). If, however, tho visitor wishes to have a peep at the various prize-winning birds which the young man can boast of, it is necess...

SEVEN HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 5 October 1895

SEVEN HILLS. The race between Mr. Alfred Power's Little One and Mr. Fuller's Forest Queen, referred to a few issues back, came off on Rosehill course last Saturday. Those who took our tip raked in the bunce. Mr. Power himself rode Little One, and by the display of good seamanship, steered the marc on to victory. The -race was | fllORB and fiKciiinrr. nnd had Alfrsid'a I been a little less sudden, his ten pound note would have been up the spout. Needless to say, we are all pleased that Alfred has wiped the previous defeat off the board ; and it is gratifying, apart from personal reasons, as it brings an influx of capital into the district. Influx of capital, as preached by press and politicians, is a good ♦King, and this is an influx, if only ten shekel. There were no less than two marriages on the one day— Wednesday of last week— in the neighbourhood. The marriage rate is con sidered by Coghlan and and Hayter an index of the prosperity of a place, bo that when we can raise two marri...

FARM AND ORCHARD. To Make Good Butter. Working the butter is where the fine art of buttermaking comes in. Nothing but practice and close study will master this part of the work. Take a lot of butter out of the churn and divide it between two people, one an ordinary style of butter maker and the other a trained expert, and if the butter comes out of the churn all right, one may make 9d. and the other Is. butter of it, such being the importance of proper working. To work butter correctly we must begin in the churn. Stop it when the butter breaks say the size of Bhot.

Mr. McCnxlie stated one fact which is interesting — that up to the time that Dean went into the witness-box, the jury were far from satisfied in their own minds that he had not been the victim of a conspiracy. What caused thorn to ' turn right round ' was the accused man's manner of explaining w,% * took place when lie gave his wife her medic-..e io the bedroom.
