The Northern Star. Lismore, August 25, 1877. OUR SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 25 August 1877

Lismore, August 25, 1877. OUR SCHOOLS. THE Report upon the various Schools in this district, published in a late issue, aro, very satisfactory, as showing that the schoolmaster is abroad, in the right direction ; but we are afraid that in many instances, the teaching power is ton weak to cope with the very raw material which'"composes the bulk of our bush schools ; or, in other words, though, perhaps, but little fault can bo found with the masters in charge, there is a lack of trained pupil teachers in the district, by which their hands would be strengthened, and their labors lightened. No doubt many persons are apt to un derrate the value of pupil teachers, but as they come much into contact with the'pupils in the playground, it is in tHéir power to impart a "tone" to those under their charge, either for'gbód br evil, which should not be under estimated. /Any-practical per son who has come* into eóntací with our bush youth, leno ws, that however fairly 'they may be educated, their ...

Rather Good. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 25 August 1877

Rather O»od. IMMEDIATELY upon it becoming known that the Government had boen defeated aud that there was the 1 liklihood of an early general election, a statement was industriously circulated to thc eifeefc that Goulburn was about to bo turned upside down by the ne 'cessitutcd closing very ' shortly of some large business premises, unless by possibility a scat in the next Parliament could be secured for the head of the etta lishment, 'so as to give him the chance of obtaining a place in any new Ministry to be formed, or at all events sufficient political influence enabling him to tide over temporary difficulties. When the d.ilbrent candidates are announced, should a "dissolution occur, the public will be ? capable of judging whether reliance may be placed on the assertion, for the truth of which cannot vouch ; "but this much may at'{lie present time be said that although ordinarily no encourageme.it ought to be given to those who make pol.t.cs a stepping stone to personal welfare, i...

Fancy Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 25 August 1877

Fancy Fowls. A CORRESPONDENT of the ' Ohio Farmer' gives the rollowing advice in regard to buying fancy breeds of poultry :-Get the best every time j it don't pay to get cheap stock-it is the dearest in the end. I know, for I tried on several occasions. Once I paid a dollar and a half for a sitting of light Brahma eggs, and they were the dearest eggs I bought. Five of them hutched, two of them were as black as tho ace of spades, and ; of the remaining three there was not one 1 first-class chicken. I sold the whole lot for five cents a pound, live weight, and was glad I to get rid of them at that price. At another I time I sent some money to a man who advertised " high-claS3 " dark Brahmas for [salent four dollars a trio. Dark Brahmas they might have been, but they were certainly " poor relations." Early one morning I stole to my hennery with my " little hatchet," and we had a Braham pie for dinner. I was reckless by that time, and the next day deliberately sent fifteen dollars to an...

Fashion. ACCORDING to "Athis," in tho "World," her Majesty's " At Homes " nt Buckingham Palace pnssed oil'gaily enough. The Court dressmakers must bo contented, and will be more so when their bills are paid. ? «These festivities have also, it is said, produced great activity in other Hues of business/ Doctors aud undertakers have never had a moro lively time of it. A diplomatist who was presont, and who , is celebrated for his statistical acquirements, has calculated that, out of the 1000 ladies present (all but about a dozen of whose drosses were " cut low "), no less than 500 caught cold ; only 250 of. these wore seriously invalided. Them would be about 100 cases of bronchitis, 100 of violent catarrh, and 50 of phthisis. Ho estimated that the deaths would not exceed 25 ; so there is not much cause to complain : trade must bo encouraged iu all its braucl es.
