An Inglorious Death. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 22 March 1899
An Inglorious Death.' It is a sadly pathetic Btory which relates the inglorious death of Edward GeorgejTomsett, a private in the 21st L»ncers: (soys a London paper). He was a native of Ashford, and had en listed at Canterbury some eight years ago. Only the other day he wos in the thick of the fightat Omdurman. charg ing with , his fellow troopers through the Dervish tanks, in one of the most brilliant, if not the most useful of the' gallant episodes of that memorable day. ? Then he wbh invalided home, was tended at Netley Hospital! and on bis. convalescence was discharged. /With two boon~ companions, one from the ?Wanribk regiment, and the otber.from the Irish! Fusileers, Tomsett pot into a train for., Xondon, and on arrival at Waterloo: all three were found dead drunk and helpless, and removed like sacks from the carriags to tbe plat form.

HIGHLAND SHEPHERDS AND THEIR DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 22 March 1899
HIGHLAND SHEPHERDS AND THEIR DOGS. In the Highlands of Scotland it has long been the standard rule with' shep- herds toTteep two dogs, and occasionally a young ' reserve.' One dog is taught in English, the other in Gaelic. By this' means a couple can be kept working at the same time, and on different parts of the ground, without any danger of con fusion. The almost invariable rule, is to give the gathering dog English, and tho drivingone Gaelic. Gathering is by far the more important branch, because tho dog has to uso his ejes well in searching hollows,, and to put his judgment into play when the sheep ha\e broken ground and ithera'aro i difficult paths to negotiate. A first-class gathering dog may change hands at a pretty high figure, hence the importance of training him in English.
HOW BRETON EGGS ARE PRODUCED. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 22 March 1899
HOW BRETON EGGS ARE PEODDCED. ' ;. .;,?'? An English resident in Brittany sends'* to tho 'Western Morning Nowb' an ac count of how the Breton, eggs are pro duced for the English market.' : It is 'certainly not a plan winch will recommend itself to Australian farmers. 'To farm poultry on the Breton system,' he says; 'you must live with your family on a small holding of about 15 acres. You must all lhe, eat, and sleep in the same room, and lot the hens lay their eggs under your bed, if you have one. Only about one ' farm' in 10 rises to the dignity of keeping a rooster ; ? and 'never— well, hardly ever — does any farmer indulge in the reckless extravagance of eating an, egg. Nor does he over give his fowls any gram. When they run out of doors they may steal what they oan.'

White Versus Black. DARING OUTRAGE IN GE0RGE&. NINE NEGEOES LYNCHED. London, Maroh 18. ? A daring outrage has been committed in the State of Georgia, which illustrates the hostile feeling that exists between the whites and the negroes in the Southern States of America. In Palmetto, a village in Camnbell L.ounty, Georgia, 25 miles' south-west of Atlanta, nine negroes had been imprisoned on a charge of having1 attempted to burn tho village. One hundred and sixty white men on horseback rode into the village, and surrounded the gaol. The negroes were brought out, placed against tho wall, and shot. Some of them were not killed outright, and lay on the ground: writhing in their agony. - The scenes that followed were most dis-~ tressing as the wives and children of the murdered men rushed to the spot, and their cries and lamentations were very painful to hear. The Governor of Georgia, Mr Allen D. Candler, has offered a reward for the arrest of anyof the persons concerned in the out...

THE PuUUhed etery Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Morning. FAIR AND UPABTIAL. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 1S09. . FEDERATION. The Legislative Council of. New South Wales has sprung a surprise upon the Federal party, and. revived once more the complications which preceded stbe Conference' of Premiers in 'Melbourne. The Council has decided that the vote of the people of New South Wales shall not- be taken until three months after the adoption of the amended Bill now before Parliament, and they have further stipulated that a decision of the voters shall only be effective if one-fourth of those on the electoral rolls of the Colony vote in favor of it. Unquestionably the Legislative Conncil of New 'Sorts' AVales is well within its rights iii the action it has taken ; whether the course adopted is a wise one is quite another matter. . - '- The delay in taking- the pell is likely to strengthen the Federal party rather than the provincialists, for it will enable the Premier and Mr Barton to stump th...
