THE STATION AND THE FARM. SHEEP WASHING APPARATUS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 9 June 1869
THE STATION AND THE FARM. SHEEP WASHING APPARATUS. SHEEP WASHING is a process which has materially changed its character during the last few years. It used to be a very primitive and simple matter at one time. However, the returns of recent wool sales have clearly shown that where a thorough hot-water wash has been practised the wool has sold at prices that fully repaid the trouble and outlay, and moreover that these prices have improved notwithstanding the general depreciation in the price of wool. Our. largest sheep-owners have not been slow to draw the practical inference, and the apparatus and machinery now employed on a large sheep station contrast favourably with &nbsp; the primitive means they have super- seded. A notable instance of this is afforded by a visit to the engine factory of Messrs. Wright and Edwards, Little Bourke-street, and an inspection of a sheepwash-the largest yet constructed -made from the designs of Mr. Gore, C.E., for an extensive station, owned ...

THE STATION AND THE FARM. DAIRY STOCK. (From the Leader.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
Tllli STATION AN J) THE FA KM. DAIRY STOCK. (From the Leader.) In rcspoct of milking qualities, the cattle of this colony ave very far behind those of the old country ; a cow that would pass muster in a Oheshiro or Gloucestershire dairy herd is a decided rarity, and as a rule tho yield of milk does not averago two-thirds of tho quantity common in tho above English counties. Occasionally a prodigious milker is met with, but as meat, and not milk, is tho object of tho squatter, (who is the breeder) 110 attompt is made to perpetuate dairy qualifications or to raise a milking family. Some dozen years ago, one or two squattovs turned thoir attention to supplying the metropolitan demand for milking cows, but as prices declined thoy appear to have thrown up tho business, and it is now not an easy task to find a herd out of which one might select a roason ablo number of fair milkers ; tliey must bo sought for in odd cornel's, and picked up one by one. In the early days tho Suffolk polled ca...
"TOFFS." (From Melbourne Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
"TOFFS." (From Melbourne Punch.) We have bad the natural history of "gents " and of "snobs," but no one lias yet given to the world tho peculiar peculiarities of " toffs." Ilie toff is neither a snob nor a gent, properly so called, be forms a class by himself. A toff is a being wlio is noticeable for some peculiarity either in speech, dross, or mariner. There are sporting toffs, gentlemanly toffs, political toffs, sqnat ting "toffs, mcdical toffs, and literary toffa. The derivation of the term "toff" is uncertain. Some derive it from "Tophane," the suburb of Con stantinople, and affirm tliafc the word, like " bosb," has a Turkish origin; others, again, confound it with the celebrated " Aqu-Tophana," and state that this famous (or infamous) poison was nothing more than the introduc tion of one of these creatures into a household, and consequent poisoning of the domestic springs of trust and affection. The " toff colonial" is spoony, yet conceited withal, and is usually head over-ears...

Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Haviag to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
" This i3 tnie liberty, when frooborn men, Hnviag to advise tlie public, may speak free." MILTON. SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1809. A BILL has been introduced into the House of Commons very much similar to that recently proposed in the Victorian Assembly by Mr. HIGINBOTHAM for the relief of married women from certain disabilities in respect of property under which these charming- creatures now labour. As the question Is one of con siderable general interest, and as the manner in which it is dealt with in [ England will probably be a strong J argument either for-or against the ! adoption of a similar measure here, it may be as well to see how the states men of the old country propose to deal with the matter. The main grievance there, as here, is said to be the absolute transfer in common law of a woman's personal property and future earnings to her husband by the mere fact of marriage. Of course, this rule does not apply to land, in which the husband only acquires a life interest, and of cour...

Preserved Australian Meat. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
Preserved Australian Meat. The groat enterprise of supplementing our meat supplies with consignments from the colonies is at length fairly afloat. The stolitl apathy and suspicious reserve of the English public are giving way, and tliey are respond ing cordially to the succulent overtures of Melbourne and Sydney companies. The two great London depots have for some weeks been exhausted of their stores. Spirited speculators have been found willing to pur chase large quantities of canisters, and by them the preserved meats have been widely diffused throughout the country. It is stated that otic bold speculator netted £14,000 profit in a few days. To a limited extent this method of extending the sales at this early stage of the enterprise is desir able ; but if carried too far, speculation, which works by buying up the stocks, will so enhance the retail price as to render the meats comparatively unsaleable. In Notting ham and in the Potteries towns, I have seen the (5-lb. cauisters tick...
The Norwich Tragdey. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 12 June 1869
The Norwich li-agedy. IT is an old saying, " murder will out," and on the same authority that " conscience does make cowards . of us all." But since Shakespeare moralised, there have been few more remarkable instances of the power of this conscience to drag a mail to his doom than the one recently afforded at Norwich. That ancient city was horrified one morning in the year 1851, at discovering the muti lated fragments of a woman scattered in its streets and pleasant suburban fields-a foot in one place, a hand in another, a small piece of flesh hero and there, that were unmistaka bly human. Instant and prolonged search was inado to find the author of this atrocious crime, but the police could obtain no clue, and years passed away, till it was almost forgotten. Two or three months ago, a man named Sheward presented himself at a police station in London, and declared that ho was the murderer, and that the victim was his wife. lie was passing through a street which vividly recalled her ...
