MR. JAMES BAKER [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

MR. JAMES BAKER "Was born near Dudley, Staffordshire, Eng- land, in 1825, and was for several years en- gaged as managing clerk in the coal and iron mines and works of that district. He arrived in Victoria in November, 1852, and at once proceeded to Bendigo, where he was engaged mining with varied success until about the end of that year. He subse- quently visited the Jim Crow diggings, and afterwards went to Ballarat, where he arrived on the 1st January, 1S55, and worked on the Gravel Pits, the Bakery Hill, and the deep leads at Sebastopol. About that time the difficulties of mining at Balla- rat had become so great that it was a matter of grave concern with the miners how they were to prosecute their expensive works. The areas Avere so small, the titles so in- secure, and the results so uncertain, that capitalists would not assist the miners, and the latter could not alone combat the diffi- culties of their position. Mr. Baker, how- ever, had the good fortune to initiate a plan by...

MANLY RECREATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

MANLY RECREATIONS. TN tilia sporb-loving community, so like in this respect the British stock from which it , springs, there can be few for whom a remark or two on this subject will not bear some interest. In Sydney particularly, owing pro- bably to the great natural facilities with which we are happily surrounded, recreation .on every available occasion is the order of the day, and very properly so. The many benefits which are to be derived from indulg- ing in manly sports and exercises are acknow- ledged by all. On the question, however, as to which particular exercises it is advisable that our youth should engage in, and which not, some diversity of opinion exists ; aud we will, therefore, now inquire what con- siderations ought to guide us in making our choice. In the first place, then, what is a recreation ? »The formation of the word itself will give us an answer. It is something .which will re-create; that is, create again, or renew. This then should be the object of all our ...

THE OPERA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

THE OPERA. SYDNEY is usually flattered into the belief that it is essentially fond of musical per- formances. Partially, the flattery holds good. Whether'pecuniary results prove i» operatic managers the absolute truth of this; musieal taste is best known to themselves. So far as spasmodic attendances at certain performances go, doubtless Sydney seems to love music, but the patronage of a season, regarded as a whole, seems rather to point in a different direction. On the other hand, we have a right to see whether the managers themselves are at all to blame in the matter by the manner in which they have catered for the musical entertainment of the public. The names of Lyster and Cagli are suffi- ciently well known from their loug expe- rience of the requirements and caprices of a Sydney" public to be a guarantee of efficiency in the preparation of anything musical. The want of success in such an expensive under- taking as the arrangement and completion of au opera season can hardly be...

SKETCHES IN CEYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

SKETCHES IN CEYLON. CEYLON is an island in the Indian Ocean situate at the entrance of the Bay of Bengal, and is about as large as England. It is sup- posed to be of much smaller area than in ancient times, and to have formed in re- mote ages, a portion of the Asiatic conti- nent. Its name implies to Asiatics the wil- derness of prayer ; hallowed groves conse- crated to devotion, whither pious pilgrims repaired at one time from the furthest cor- ners of India to offer gifts and adoration to the unknown God. The Cingalese still call the country Lanca, or the Holy Land. Cey- lon was occupied by the Portuguese in 1505, and it remained under their rule for 153 years, when it was wrested from them by the Dutch. In 179S it was acquired by Great Britain by right of conquest, and has ever since remained under British rule. The most conspicuous mountain in the island is Adam's Peak, about sixty miles from Co- lombo. It is visible seaward from a dis- tance of 150 miles. It is said by the Hin-...

DIPPING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

! DIPPING SHEEP. THERE is given on this page an engraving of a tank and appliances for dipping sheep. This is an operation that ought to be per- formed at this season on every flock, both sheep and lambs. Vermin which infest sheep greatly increase during the winter. Often cutaneous disorders, as scab, have largely spread throughout the flock. All these have an injurious if not destructive effect on the sheep and their fleeces. Dipping in the various solutions in vogue, which have been heretofore described in the American Agriculturist, destroy the vermin and cure skin diseases. The improved condition of the sheep's health acts on the growth of the wool, which becomes heavier and of more even .staple. The tank shown in the en- graving is a water-tight box . just large enough to hold the sheep. There is a false bottom, perforated with a number of holes and suspended by cords, on which the sheep is represented as standing. The cords are wound on the rollers seen at the ends of the tank...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

Water charged with sulphuric acid would make a valuable wash for stables if there were any way of saving the liquid manure. Applied to a manure pile it would fix the ammonia which became disengaged from the fermenting mass, and produce a non-volatile salt of ammonia. A simple and cheap method of condens- ing milk, devised by Gfal, of Innsbruck, con- sists in heating the milk in a boiler to from 150 deg. to 1G0 deg., and then pumping it up through pipes, at the mouth of each of which is a perfora-ed rose, like that of a watering-can. The milk thus returns in separate threads to the boiler, aud in its passage the watery part is evaporated. This method is said to give concentrated milk quite as good as that by the ordiuary pro- cesses, and with much less trouble and ex- pense.

METHOD OF UTILIZING BONES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

METHOD OF UTILIZING BONES. THE utility of raw bones is much circum- scribed by the difficulty of bringing them into a fit state for use. A rough method of cracking them, or reducing them to large fragments by means of a heavy pounder or sledge, may be employed where they are in- tended for use in an orchard or vineyard, where they may be buried at the roots of a permanently established fruit-treet. But to j become useful to annual erops they must be brought to a more practicable shape. When ! coarsely broken they may be reduced by caustic lye more slowly but with much less inconvenience than by sulphuric acid. To accomplish this, a rough but tight box, not over eighteen inches deep, is needed. Procure sound, unleached wood-ashes, mix a peck of slaked lime and a peck of sal-soda to every barrel of dry ashes. Pack thc ashes, etc., with the bones in layers (ashes first) until the box is filled. Saturate the nuiss with water, and add from time to time more water to preserve a constant s...

THE SCENE OE THE WRECK OF THE BRITISH ADMIRAL. THE BEACH THE MORNING AFTER WRECK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

THE SCENE OE THE WRECK OF THE BRITISH ADMIRAL. THE BEACH THE MORNING AFTER WRECK. THE whole of the western coast of King's Island, with the exception of two small sandy beaches, consists of low, irregular, broken rocks, so jagged and sharp that it borders on the miraculous how anything from the wreck of the British Admiral that did not float on to these sandy places escaped destruction. Along the rocky coast that intervenes be- tween Curiie Harbour and the beach depicted by our artist, every article that came ashore was smashed to fragments, and it is not until the sandy beach is arrived at that anything in the shape of cargo has floated ashore uninjured. Picture No. 1 gives an admirable representation of the indescribable . scene of confusion which presents itself to '.the eye, with the accumulation of traces of the wreck. The beach, which stretches back to the tea-tree scrub, a distance of about forty yards, is about a mile and a half in length, being bounded on each extremity by ...

THE CALF AND THE CHEESE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

i ' ', ; ~ THE CALF AND THE CHEESE I DAIRY. CHEESE dairymen in New York and else- where are in the habit of raising good calves at a small cost, and without milk, except for i a few days at first. But they do- not raise good calves on whey, because it docs not con- tain the nourishment necessary to support them. There is not much left in whey but sugar and mineral matter. The sugar is useful iu supporting respiration and in making fat, and the mineral in making bone, but there is not much in whey to make flesh of. The cheese takes out six-sevenths of the flesh-forming matter iu milk Supply this deficiency with something in a form that can be easily digested, and calves can then live on whey. A good many things may be sub- stituted for the ilesh-formiug material in milk. The best aud most convenient sub- "* stitute I have used is oil meal. It needs only to be soaked in hot whey, and it is ready for use. Pea meal, bean meal, the flour of wheat, rye, or buck wheat, or fine middlings, o...

OX YOKES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

OX YOKES. THERE is nothing which a farmer uses that is more dependent for ease and convenience in use upon true scientific principles pf con- struction than an ox-yoke. We very seldom, come across a yoke and bows to which some objection may not be made. They eithee choke the oxen or gall their necks, or the yoke will break under a sudden jerk. These difficulties are all owing to faulty construc- tion. In the first place more timber is gene- rally used than necessary, and the consé- quence is that more cutting is ueedèd to shape it. This makes the yoke weak where ib ought to be strongest. Sometimes. the J stick is sawed 7 x 10 inches ; -but really ; i x G is amply sufficient. This is little.more . than one-third the other size, and a saving is consequently made. The principia on ". which the yoke should be shaped is this : the point to which the draft-chain is fast- \ eued should be on a line with the centre of the force applied, or that part of the yoke " surrounding the neck of the...

ENTOMOLOGY. THE CICADA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 25 July 1874

ENTOMOLOGY. THE CICADA. 1 No insect is more familiarly known in and about Sydney during the summer months than the cicada, or as it is erroneously called "Locust," except it be a specimen (Cimex lectularius) belonging to the Hemiptera, an .order which immediately pi'ecedes that of the .cicada. Who has not heard the merry chirriping of these insects throughout the ^day, continued again after sundown, and even at midnight ? They are indeed a happy race, .or to quote from Kirby and Spence, "not, we will suppose, for the reason givçn by the ?saucy ' Rhodian Xenarchus,' when he says, Happy the Cicadas' lives, Since they all have voiceless wives," "but because their life, as a perfect insect, is one continued song. But I may be allowed to add that " Xenarchus " forgot to mention that they also possess a happiness equal, if not greater, to that of their wives being voiceless-hear it without being envious if .you can: The cicadas have no mother-in laws ! How often have we, after some hot an...
