Maize Silage. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 20 May 1898
Maize Silage. What Professor Shelton says :— -Maize as a Silage Crop. — Any good variety of maize that fully matures will do for ensilage-making. We prefer using the larger and coarser growing sorts in a ; climate such as that of Queensland. i These varieties give the largest amount ! of fodder, tho largest amount of grain, \ and are no more dilneult to cultivate ? than the small ' Ninety-day ' varieties ;| which yield ao much less. Mistakes are often made, too, in planting corn too ! thickly for tho silo. It is a common and '? widely-spread delusion in Queensland ? that corn designed for fodder purposes should be sown broadcast, in order, it is said, that it may grow tender and succu lent, and thus bo moro palatable to stock. This idea is most fallacious. The corn ;? crop, when crowdod, as in broadcasting, ; fails to mnke its proper growth. It does ?, not ear fully, and it is wanting in ? nutritious qualities, which can only be ! gained under conditions of growth which \ favour tho...

There is said to be no art in so called lion -taming but the art of terrorism, and no rule but that of keeping the lions' stomachs full and their minds cowed. There never has beeri and never will be an appeal to the lion's intelligence, because the limited amount of that quality which he possesses is entirely dominated by his ferocity. Lions can neither be tamed or trained, save by those who know. You may pare their claws, and pull their eye-teeth, and terrorise them to a certain extent, if you begin when they are cubs ; but their inmate fierce ness and lust for blood remain.

A PRECIOUS VILLAIN. ? A A * BF GROSVENOR BUNSTER. ? M-e ? CHAPTER IV (Continued.) The people who visited at the house at' Lancaster Gate were essentially Bohemian. In course of a few days ?the lad learned, indeed, that he had happened upon a class whose tastes and habits were very much to his Hieing. Although undeveloped, mere was scarce a vice for which this youth , was not ready, and so he entered with enthusiasm into the gambling and somewhat hard drinking, which, as he soon found, were usual at the nightly parties at his new friends' house. But much to the captain's amazement and chagrin, it was discovered that this boy in his teens was not to be drawn like a Dudger. Ihere was not a game of cards with which he was not familiar. He 'took them down' at billiards in the'easiest manner. He never played ' Hazard, frankly informing the captain that he did not play for amusement — but profit. The gallant captain bit his finger-nails. ' My dearest Bertha,' said he to his cousin, ' I can...
