RETALIATION. . ''-.?../. it is easy to break a man of. being a nuisance ??; '.'? : if you got at it right. Thoro was a case over on Sixth-street not long ago, which shows, that as soon as you boat a man at his : own game, that settles him. Fred.

Ho had a couple of pups that lie* was breaking, and he would sit up half tho night snapping caps. on his gun and throwing boots across the room for tho dogs to retrieve The noiso became annoying to tho family up stairs, as tho dogs would run and bark and mako as great a racket as possible.

Mature. ELEPHANTS MINDING THE BABY. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 14 September 1882

Iftature; ELEPHANTS MINDING THE BABY. ? . Tueke is nothing by any means uncommon orinorediblo in tho-stories which have been reported, says Buokland, about the children of a mahout being cared for by the mahout's elephant. It is alwayB expedient to employ a married mahout if you can, with .a hard working wife and two or three children. The whole family become, as it wore, parasites to the elenhant bv whom tbov nnrn thnlv Hvint* It is only a question of degree to what extent an elephant may be trusted with a baby ; but I have seen a baby placed by its mother .systematically under the elephant's care, and within reach of its trunk, whilst the mother went to fetch' water, or to get wood or materials to cook the family dinner.. No jackal or wolf would be likely to piok up and 'carry off a baby who was thus confided to tho care of an elephant; but most people who have lived a lifo in the jungles know how very possible it is for a jackal or a wolf to carry off a baby, oven when lying in a...

Science. OBEMATION.' By bit. Samuel Kneeland. ? The four principal ways of disposing of tho dead havo been : First, mummification'; second, burning; third, intorment: fourth, aerial exposure.

Though thoso may answor all sanitary purposes, and fulfil all tho naorcd obligations of tho living to the departed, in scattered populations, thoy aro attended with danger, always increasing in populous com munities.

SOMETHING ABOUT RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 14 September 1882

SOMETHING ABOUT BABBITS. The rabbit, inasmuch as he belongs, to the mammalia, is on a footing of equality .with man, and the whale,, and other vertebrates — he beats them all, however, on the Malthusian population theory. According to Linnonis, and Cuvier, and other scientific men, ho iB of the order |Bodentia, of the family Leporidie. it is ?satisfactory to oe lmormeu that the rabbit is known in scientific circles, as Lepus cuniculm ; but we should not be sorry if ho were Lepua 11011 est . As far as the farmers and graziers of Australia are concerned, he might belong to tho order of Eodentia, or any other order, so long as he would not stand upon tho order of his going, but go at once. If you go out into tho country, where the rabbits are very plentiful, you will probably not see any. They prefer to remain in their burrows, whore they hold rabbit conventions, which, from their point of view, is much more satisfactory than being made into rabbit pie. If he does happen to be out, ho ...

Sftetcfoer. CHAEMED WHITE DEEB, A LOVE STORY OF THE INDIANS WnO LIVED IN THE DELAWARE VALLEY. One oi the popular superstitions of the hun ters of Pike county is that tho killing of a white deer will inevitably be followed by evil results to the one who fires tho fatal shot. It is singular how deep tho belief in this super stition is rooted, not only in the minds of the uneducated backwoodsmen, but among resi dents of the highest intelligence. Tho Indian + i-i!irto 4linf nnnn iillinlll tori. flm Tlnlnwnrn Valley 'believed that white deer, which were very rare, were protected by a charm, and that their lives were sacred.

Her lover was one of the. bravest of braves, and the hero of many a battle. He was a leader among the young 'men of the tribe, and more popular than tho chief.

Household. ON SLEEP AND NERVOUS UNREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 14 September 1882

Ibousefoolb. ON SLEEP AND NEBVOUS UNBESTv By A Family Doctoh. Tiiehe is, in this busy continent which tho Briton calls his homo, a very large proportion of human beings — many of them well enough ' ?? — bff, pecuniarily speaking — to whom .the world is all a worry, and-life a long-continued fever. People of this class are not invalids in the strict meaning of tho term, although they oftentimes suffer far more than the generality of invalids. Pleasures they never know ; hard work is a weariness ; and yet they are unable to enjoy their leisure when they obtain it. Their symptoms, mental and bodily, taken collectively, constitute a disease which, for want of a better, I designate by the name of norvouB unrest. A person so suffering does not consider himself ill, nor is 'he looked upon as a subject for condolence by those with whom he comes into daily contact. How could he be? He does not look a bit like' the ghost of Banquo at the feast ; when you meet him in the street the smile rises...

A largo quantity of the nitrogenous or am monia producing substances are contained in the urine, and, therefore, if tho manure is exposed to rains, and the trainings allowed to waste, serious loss will bo occasioned. . In vestigation has shown box manure is much superior to that made in the open yard. The system of allowing manure to remain under the cattle for a long period, in some instances ? for three months, in specially constructed deep stalls, has tho advantage, as compared with the ordinary practice of manure heaps, that the manure is obtained in more workable condition,, the ammoniaeal salts better pre served, and the proport...
