EFFECTS OF FOODS—LEAN PORK. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

EFFECTS OF FOODS-LEAN FORK. ' THE be6t results can be had with breeding sows by turning them into a field where there is plenty of pasture. Fruits are also natural foods for swine, and sows will do well if fed on nothing but apples. In the summer hogs should always be on the earth, and given a chance to root. When it is known that all these cheap foods are so natural and healthful for swine, it seems strange that so many farmers persist in keeping their hogs, the year round, on grain. An acre of sweet corn, fed stalks and all, will go a long way towards fattening a lot of hogs. Sorghum is also excellent. Weeds are allowed to go to seed, for extra work the next year, which would make excellent pork. Here is a maxim : The cheapest foods make the best pork. The reason is, it is the leanest. Lean pork then being the best we should try to make it. Confinement in pens tends to increase the fat. Exercise develops the muscles. The muscular part is the best food, Tbe fat is largely waste. We...

MAIZE FOR SILAGE [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

3iAlZE FOR SILAGE AN interesting series of experiments in order to discover the best variety of maize for silage, the best time for planting, and the proper stage of maturity for cutting, has recently been carried out at the New York Experimental Station. From these the following conclusions have been adduced: 1. That the greatest weight of green fodder seems to have been about the period of full silking about the ears. 2. That the total weight diminished after this date, but the total dry matter increased. 3. That the total nitrogen does not appear to increase after the ears silk. 4. That as the corn approaches maturity the per- centage of amide nitrogen diminishes, while the albuminoid nitrogen increases, thu3 seemingly increasing the feeding value of the crop. 5. That the sugars and starch increase rapidly duringthe latter period of growth and maturing of the corn plant, and that these are the most valuable portion of the nitrogen free extract. G. That for the greatest amount of ...

Cost of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Cost of Living. ( UxDEB the heading of " Food Supply and the Cost of Living," the cost of fooi and beverages in the colony, exclusive of intoxicants for 1888, amounted to £15,750,000, consumer's price. The average ex- penditure is equal to 9-7d. per day, or 12 6d., in- cluding liquors, that for the United Kingdom being Od., and for the United States 7d. per day. The local production of wheat fell short of the demand last year by 3,700,000 bushels, the season for 1888-9 being probably the worst on record. Based on the average of the past two years," adds the Government Statistician, " the requirements of 1889 will be 8,000,000 bushels, of which only one and a-half million will be available from the harvest of the colony." Under the heading of " The C03t of liv- ing." Our annual expenditure is put down at £48,700,000 : of which roughly speaking 15 millions are spent on food, four on liquors, seven on cloth- ing, six as rent, one on art and amusement, three fifths of a million on booka...

Employers' Liability Act. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Employers' Liability Act. IN Banco on Tuesday, a mle nisi for a new trial waa applied for ia the case of Murphy v. Loveridge and another. The action came before Mr. Justice Stephen and a jury of four, under the Employers Liability Act, in which the sum of £1000 was claimed by plaintiff, who sustained severe injuries whilst occupied working in defendant's stone quarry. The defendants, it appeared, introduced a new mode of blasting by an American patent, and the only knowledge the defendants had aa to the method of working it was from a printed copy of instructions, which was read over by the fore- man. On the occasion upon which the defendant was injured one of the detonators missed fire, and exploded while the charge was being withdrawn, the consequence of which was that the jumper blew up, and injured plaintiff. One of the counts of the action was that the employer was aware of the dangerous nature of the explosive in question, whilst it was alleged that the plaintiff waa not. The ...

THE AMBER CANE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

TUE AMBER CAXE. AMBEB cane as a fodder plant appears to be attract- ing some attention in Victoria. Some time back we directed attention to the success which was .attending its cultivation in Kansas, where the State was affording encouragement as an induce- ment to agriculturists to grow it for syrup-making purposes. The plant is suitable for warm and dry climates, and preferring a sandy to any soil. For fodder thick sowing i3 necessary ; but when grown for syrup, as in America, one-fourth of the quantity of seed per acre suffices. It is rich in saccharine matter, consequently is very fattening. Sheep and cattle thrive wonderfully well on it. Milking cows yield a largely increased flow of milk when fed upon it. For fattening pig3 it is said to be the best and cheapest kind of feed that can be used. The seed will return a large revenue per acre. It also is fattening and is readily eaten by all kinds of stock and poultry. For extracting syrup a special kind of mill is required, althou...

DAIRYING AND ENSILAGE. DISCUSSION ON SCIENTIFIC & PRACTICAL ASPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

DAIRYING AND ENSILAGE. DISCUSSION ON SCIENTIFIC SC PKACTICAL ASPECTS. _ I AN important Conference has recently been held in "Victoria, under the presidency of the Minister for Agriculture of that colony. The object of the Conference was to discnss the scientific and prac- tical aspects of Dairying and Ensilage. The Con- ference was made of persons representing silos and ensilage, and others representing dairying. The opening address of the Hon. J. L. Dow was both interesting and instructive. Upon the question of dairying a vast field for development was pointed out. Seventeen million pounds of butter were made in Victoria last year. Of this, fifteen million pounds were consumed in the colony and two mil- lions exported. In the London market last year £20,000,000sterling were expended upon the impoi ts of butter, and it has been proved that it is possible to make butter in Victoria which will give a nett return from the London market pf ls per pound. While this is the ease, it was po...

Selected Lines. THE LORDS OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Selected Lines. THE LORDS OF LABOUR, THIS stirring ode was written by the gifted but ill atarred Scottish poet, James M'Farlane, born in the West of Scotland in 1S32, and who, after a che- quered, erratic career, died of consumption in 1S(<2. They come ! they come in a glorious march, You can hear their steam-steeds neigh AB they dash through skill's triumphal arch, ' .Or plunge 'mid the dancing spray. . Their bale-fires blaze in the mighty forge, Their life-pulse throbs in the mill, Their lightnings shiver the gaping gorge And their thunders shake the hill. Ho ! these are the Titans of toil and trade The heroes who wield no sabre ; Hat mightier conquests reapeth the blade . That is borne by the Lords of Labour. Brave hearts, like jewels, light the sod, Through the mists of commerce shine, And souls flash ont like stars of God From the midnight of the mine. No palace is theirs, no castle great, No princely, pillared hall ; But they well can laugh at the roofs of state 'Ne...

Clarence River Heads. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Clarence River Heads. FURTHEU evidence was taken by the Public Works Committee on the question of improving the Clarence Heads. CAPTAIN BRACEGIRDLE said that the trade of the Clarence would not increase, and he did not consider that so large an expenditure (£600,000) was justifiable. He has made weekly trips to the Clarence, and never missed once. Mr. J. M. PURVES considered the expenditure quite justifiable, and said steps should be taken to direct the course of the channel so as to create a sconr and clear away the impediments. Mr. "W. SHELLSHEAB, O.E., considered Mr. Mori- arty's plans erroneous, and would do more harm than good. He preferred the removal of the reef, to the depositing of a breakwater on a sandy foundation. If the northern works were not carried out, how- ever, the southern would be of little use. Mr. RICH ABS COOKE.OÍ theC.R.andM.R.S.N.Co., stated that the Clarence trade was about stationary, and was materially affected by the Great Northern line. Mr. R. HICKSON ...

THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. PLOUGHING MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. TL o romy o MATCHES. THE programme of ploughing matches announced to take place at the Junction on the 21st instant should induce large entry and keen competition. A revival appears to have taken place in regard to competitions of this nature, and the facilities and assistance now tendered by the C. P. and A. Society should, and most likely will be taken advantage of by other agricultural centres. In this direction the Society ha3 extended ita usefulness materially, and strengthened its claims on the agricultural community. Still it has not exceeded its duty. Considering the important place turning the soil occupies in farming, it seems strange that it should for a number of years have passed unrecognised, while matters less momentous were taken up and dealt with. _ The maker of a superior agricultural implement is_, we say, undoubtedly entitled to special recognition by a prize ; but how much greater claim has the person who most skilfully manip...

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Echoes and Opinions. A SHOUT time since we referred to the necessity for greater attention being paid to writing as a branch of education in our schools, public and private. The undecipherable caligraphic efforts of the signa- tories to the recently-presented address, as proved by the straggles to wrestle with them, is some evi- dence of how much even prominent public men are lacking in the ability to write well-the outcome either of want of careful instruction, or equally to be condemned carelessness in after life. Mr. J. P. ABBOTT, M.L.A., has been writing to the Herald on this question of defective writing, and doubtless hits one of the right nails upon the head in sug- gesting causes that lead to existing (almost univer- sal) effects. He says : " Within the last three years I have had articled to me three lads who had attended some of the higher schools in the colony, and not one of them could write a hand which would enable him to earn a living for himself in an office. I have ...

Mr. Laman for complainant, Mr. Donaldson for defendant, who pleaded "cause to show." There was a cross-case between the parties of a similar nature, and it was decided to hear both cases together. Bridget Gilmore deposed that she resided in South Grafton for the past 27 years, and lived, with her husband, next door to Devoy's. On the 18th October, about 1 p.m.. she went into Devoy's back yard, which is partly separated from witness' by a fence, to drive ont some fowls. Kate Devoy came out, and said " Clear out, you-cow ; I'll put a charge of shot in your-" Made no reply. She ran out, and taking up a brick threw it at witness, but it did not strike her.

Paternal and Marital Rights. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Paternal and Marital Rights. A CASE of considerable local interest, and one which vitally concerns the community at large, has been decided by the Chief Judge in Equity. Isabel Hawkins, wife of George Thomas Hawkins, draper, of Lambton, made an application under the Custody of Infants' Act, to recover the custody of her child, aged three and a half years, who had been taken away by her husband. Judge Owen, in giving judgment, went at some length into the Act, 30 Victoria, No. IC, upon which the application was founded. Authorities were read which showed that in considering any case under that statute certain grounds were to be kept in mind. These were the paternal right, the marital duty, and the interest of the child. The Judge pointed out, however, that it appeared to him there was really no grave charge against the father or the mother, although there had been unfortunate squabbles between them, and they had lived very unhappily. There had, however, to a certain extent, been a la...

Another Bubble Burst. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Another Bubble Burst. SOME little time ago a cablegram was pnblished to i the effect that a plasterer named Pearce, a native I of Brixton, Devon, had inherited a fortune of £1,500,000 by the death of a relative, a clergyman : in New South Wales. An advertisement appeared in ! a newspaper of Wellingborough asking for infor- mation regarding the whereabouts of Pearce, as heir to this property. On the appearance of this I advertisement Pearce left his work, gave away his I tools in the most liberal manner, and stated that he had received £100 on account from the agents in I London of the Australian solicitors. Some months before the occurrence Pearce's wife had committed I suicide, owing to their poverty-stricken condition, so that the man's statement caused a good deal of i talk in the town. The supposed lucky millionaire then showed the advertisement to his employers, to whom he had previously spoken about the fortune he had inherited, and applied to them for a loan of I £fi0 to pay ...
