PART VI. ' Never fear that. It will take me a ? few days to provision the boat, for the fools think they can cross the Straits in it to Port Phillip,' replied Edward, with a laugh. ' If they had fine weather for a week they might do that; but don't give them the chance. It must be near daylight now, so I will be going. You told them last night I would make to the Tamar to-day for orders, didn't you ?' ' Yes, that is all arranged,' said the brother, and as the two scoundrels made a movement towards the door the astounded listener quickly retreated to the little room where his comrade slept. He did not disturb him, but waited for half-an-hour until he awoke , and then he unfolded the vile plot he had so providentally overheard. ' We are to be trapped on the morn ing of the 17th.

Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Breeding for the Local and English Markets. PART II. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 14 January 1898
Poultry Notes. B'rofitalilc Poultry BSrooalius for ISte ILoenl ami English Markets. ? , ? & ? From thr, AfiricuUural Gazette of N.S.W. BY OKO. BRADSHAW. BART II. The importance of the poultry in dustry as a valuable adjunct to the other branches of farming, is at the present day being emphasised through out all agricultural communities. An authority on poultry-breeding says:-—' In farming, the day of small things has assuredly come. Poultry iis a subject of the great national im portance ; and is one of the small things which might well contribute in a much greater extent than here tofore to the farmer. To small far mers and cottagers, poultry-keeping is indeed, or ought to be, much more than a small thing. When properly conducted it is a reliable and remuner ative source of income, and its re liable character is a consideration of the greatest importance, especially to the poorer class of farmers, who re quire the entire produce of their holdings for the bare necessaries of...
ELECTRIC CABS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 14 January 1898
ELECTRIC CABS. A service of motor cabs has now been placed upon the streets of Lon don. They are . beautifully-made vehicles, driven and lit by electricity, and though, on account of the electri cal apparatus which is carried under neath the bodv of the car, they are much heavier than the ordinary growler, they run with a smoothness that will be extremely welcome to people who have been accustomed to the four wheeled cab. The new vehicles are the property of the London Electrical Cab Company, and are licensed to ply for hire as ordinary cabs and to carry two persons. They are luxuriously fitted and upholstered with bottle green cloth and leather, with yellow or cream coloured body and wheels. After an inauguration service con ducted by Mr. Preece, C.B., F.R.S., a procession of a score of the new cabs was sent forth into the West-end streets, where they -attracted respectful attention. -The weak point of the electric cab, as in all geared vehicles, is the chain. Each link is made of ...

Treatment of Rancid Butter. Whex butter turps rancid (says Le Bulletin), it may be made good again in the following way : — Put tho rancid butter into water con taining from 20 to 30 drops of chloride of lime to about 2lb. of butter : tho butter should be kneaded in the water, and then left for some timo, until the butter has lost its rancid taste. Anotnor way is to knead tho butter in water containing a small puantity of bicarbonate of soda ; soon the rancid taste will go ofll, aud tho butter should be washed in plenty of water and again salted to prevent it turning again.

Lower Clarence Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 January 1898
Lower Clarence Topics. THE Examiner of last Saturday undor the heading of 'Lower Clarence Topics' has some thing to say concorning tho proposed dock at Greon Point and other matters. Tho Examiner is advorsc to tho construction of tho dock, and makes the following extraordinary statomont — 'In this matter Mr, McJb'arlane occupies tho unonviable position whoro ho has to serve ovorybody ; and, whilo half tho electors aro anxious to see the dock pro ceeded with immediatoly, the other half do not wish the work to bo undortakon.' '\Yo do not profess to know what tho Examiner means by its reference to Mr. MclTarlaue. The pro posed work, wo bolievo, originated with tho De partmont and not with tho Member or tho public ; and tho proposed dock is to bo wel comed as a doparturo from tho system of cen tralization which tho Examiner pretends to oppose. Tho assertion, that half the electors do not wish to see tho work undortakon is abso lutely without foundation. 'Wo have not been able to discove...

Maclean Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 January 1898
Maclean Municipal Council. The question of finance is of tho utmost im portance to all Municipal Councils, and tho cause of great perplexity to somo. The financial position of Maclean, while not such as to call for alarm, is still not quite a satisfactory one. A considerable amount of caution appears to bo necessary to keep tbo overdraft within tho limit of the £'100 allowed by tho bank, and tbo pay ments authorised at last meeting cannot bo mado without exceeding that amount, While the expenditure for ordinary work always keeps the overdraft in the neighbourhood of £400, it will be impossible to undertake new work of any magnitude, such, as the improvement of tho should be an opportune time to direct tho atten tion of tho ratepayers to the financial state of the Municipality, and to suggest a now dopar turo in regard thereto. In most municipalities money has been raised by tho issue of deben tures at alow rate of iutoreat. Wo do not think it advisablo that Maclean should add to its...
