PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

PLATIS AND PLAYERS. The Best iMan, the newfarce written DyMr RaPloh Lumley for MIr 'ole and his com pany, was produced for the first time on the Gthi 1arch last at Toole's Theatre, London. The new piece was written form Mr John Wood orininally, but none the less is stated to suit tMr Toole and his company admirably. Mr Toolo is the centist figure of the piece in the character of a more than middle-aged managing director of a railway company, who, despite the dificullties of managing both the railway and the dissatisfied shareholders, none the less finds time to play the gallant in the quaintest manner. Asemaybe supposed, this weakness loads the advanced Adonis, in the person of Mr Price Puttlow, into many very diverting situations, and most amusing dilemmas. One scene that creates great amusement is Puttlow's appearance at: the house of one of the shareholders in the railway com pany. Sir Lovel Gage, who has rescued the chairman from a meeting of indignant shareholder', and has .bro...

Poor Millionaires. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Poor Millionaires. Pity the unhappy millionaire 1 Mr Andrew Carnegie, preaching once more his gospel of wealth and its responsi. bilities, has a difficulty in perceiving how the daily life of the man without w?a'th differs from that of a man who has it. Obviously, in the matter of this sort, much depends upon the angle of vision. The Carnegie Steel Company was able last month to pay a fine of 149,484 dollars for sending in ferior armor-plates to the American Naval Department, but Carnegie has hardly, in consequence, denied himself a single one of his usual luxuries. Were a poorer man concerned it might be dif ferent. Carnegie says of the mil lionaire : He works just as hard as his poorest neighbor. As I remarked the other nieht, the millionaire is the cheapest man in the community. He works like a slave, and all he asks of the community in return is his hboard and clothes. He may be rhappy in possession of millions, but still-his enjoyments, and even his porers, are limited. He cann...

POLITICIANS AND THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

POLITICIANS AND THE TRUTH. Galileo is credited with the observation that all truth lies in the alphuhet. Un happily, so does all lying. \Vhich the common sou:co turnishes forth in the greater quantity nowadays we would not like to say. Most people will " have opinions" on the subject. And, however much these opinions vary in the ab stract, there would be no difliculty in obtaining a iery general agreement that the searcher after truth only wastes his time by pursuing his investigations in the field of politics. Hie et ubique ! It is pretty much the same wherever you go. Admittedly, the temptation to lie is strong, and poor humanity is usually,. weak. The Press, too, while plnuming itself upon its own truthfulness, is, by its inquisitivcness. a prolific cause of the barefaced lying done by politicians. For the newspaper alvays wants to know so much-wants that information, moreover, at critical periods, just when it ill suits the interest of party to be candid. Therefore it is that. l...

Aperson enter ing the hall on Friday eveninglast would be led to say, if the face is an index of the mind, the people of Puck. must be a happy contented lot.

One thing that part:u larly surprised the writer was the ignorunco. which so many agricultural visitors disl:laytd in regard to the Babook milk test. Many had 0ever heard of it. Analysing and testing milk for butter fat by this simple and accurate process, which came to light in 189, is one of the greatest discoveries of the age. The test chows qui:kly and accurately the per cent. of butter fat in sweet, sour or skim milk, buttermilk, or cream.

Effects of Salt on the Animal System. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Effects of Salt on the Animal System. It is well-known that herbivorous anim?l? are food of common salt, and this is as true of wild animals as of those domesticated by man. Car nivorous animals, on the other hand, either have no liking for salt, or show a positive aversion to it. Cats, for example, will rarely touch salt meat. This difference is not easily explained. The blood of bath clanses of animals contain a certain amount of soda salts, but the quantity ef sola in a vegetable diet is not recossarily lees than in onc of tlesh. A German experiment^r, Herr Bunge, has been the first to suggest a plausible solution of the enigma. A vegetable diet turnishes twice as much potash as a flesh diet does, and it c. carred to him that the greeter supply of potash must be attended with the greatest waste of soda. To test this theory experimentallr, he put himself on a perfectly uniform diet of beef, bread, butter, sugar and a small quantity of salt. When by daily analysis of the urine he f...

Value of Intelligence in Cattle [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Value of Intelligence in Cattle -0- A well-known breeder holds that the ideal cattle to breed from should have, in addition to the best beef-making and milking qualities, good brainse. When he sees an animal rushing aimlessly here and there in a sale-ring, he some times leans half.humourously to a friend, and says, "That beast wants brains." As a matter of actual fact, writes "The Lire Stock .ournal," one seldom finds much good in cattle that are narrow between the eyes. With such a formation of forehead there o usually a long muzzle and a lean, lanky frame. A gooid milk. ina cow of any of the ordinary breeds used in dairies has generally a muzzls of fair length, and with well-traced lines of beauty in it, but the forehead is broad, and the eyes full. There is pleasure in studying what may be termed an intelligent head when one goes through a herd of fine cattle. The eyes are beaming mildly with contentment, kindliness, and a well. balanced blend of many bovine virtues. There is a s...

General News. In the Hayes v, Australasian case, the jury agreed to disagree. The British Consul at Assunclon, the capital of Paraguay, has cabled to the Marquis of Ripon, Secretary of State for the Colonies, a statement that Ito of the " New Australia" settlers in Paraguay have abandoned the colony. Others of the settlers are, however, satisfied to remain. Sir W, Harcourt, Chancellor of the Exchequer, delivered his budget speech in the House of Common on Monday last. It contains propositions to increase the income tax by a penny in the pound, increased spirit and beer duties, and a revision of the death duties. Sir Charles Russell, the English Attorney General, has been appointed a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary in succession to the late Lord Bowen. Mr. Patterson still laughs at his critics. He is wise, I think; for it is the only answer he can give them. He called the Trades Hall people a set of Biddy iforiarities. But Dr. Scott, of Villiers, is " the biggest Biddy of them all."

AGRICULTURAL. Potato-Growing Experiments [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

AGRIOULTURAL. Potato-Growing Experiments Mono. de Vilmorin has recently made to the Socifti Nationale d'Agriculture de France a very interesting communication upon some po. tato-growing experiments which he has been cearryoing on. The exceptional dryness of the summer of 1893 made itself felt upon the potato yields as well as upon most of the other crops. By comparing the table of the results obtained at Verrieres mn good open land, deep and rich with the figures obtained in past years, it will be seen that if the richness of the tubers in fecunla is almost the shme, the return in weight of the different varieties is almost one-half leaes in 1893 than it was in 1892. This is chiefly saeys Mons. de Vilmorin, by the reduction of the volume and of the individual weight of the tubers, which his been noticed in the decrease of the retorn. It isa proof that exterior con ditions slightly iofloence the varieties in the amonnt giver, a disposition which is inlherent to the variety independen...

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

MIelbourne Letter. ;-o: aY OUR OVWN CORRESPONDBNT.] THe proposal to establish a large central chilling and storing depot in Melbourne, where agricultural produce of all kinds could be received, graded, chilled, and stored ready for shipment, meets with Mr, David Wilson's entire approval. Should the Government carry out this proposal, private enterprise will speedily find the money to erect collecting depots in the interior, where produce would be deposited by the landholders, and then, in large consignments, sent to the central depot at the port of shipment. The saving on railway carriage alone by this system would be large, as it is always cheaper to send a lot of produce as one consignment, than for the farmers to consign their own small lots. The country chilling and storing depots, would prove invaluable to the small class of land-holders, and give an enormous impetus to the development of our agricultural wealth, Most farmers know, or at least they ought to know, just as well a...

Mule Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Mule Breeding. The report of the American Bureau of Animal Industry contains a paper on breeding mules. The following note is given as to the several varieties of jacks in the United States: We have the Catalonian, the Andalusian, the Maltese, the Majorca, the Italian and the Poitou-all of which are imported-and the native jack. Of all the imported, the Cata lonian is the finest type of animal, being a good black, with white points, of fine style end ac:ion, and from 141 hands to 15 heeds high, rarely 1I hands, with a clean bone. The Anda lusian is about the same type of jack as the Catalouian, having, perhaps, a little more weight and bone, but are all off colors. The Maltese is smaller than the Catnloniant rarely being over 144 hands high, but is anice and smooth. The Majorca is the largest of the im. ported jacks, the heaviestin weight, bone, head and ear, and frequently grows to 16 hands. These are raised in the rich island of Majorca in the Mediterranean Sea. While they excel i...
