Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

latiító* Column* TRUE AND FALSE MODESTY.-Nothing is more amiable than true modesty, and nothing more contemptible than that which is false ; the one guards virtue, the other betrays it. True modesty is ashamed to do anything that is repugnant to right reason ; false mo- desty is ashamed to do anything that is opposite to the humour of those with whom the party converses. True modesty avoids everything that is criminal ; false modesty everything that is unfashionable. The lat- ter is only a general, undetermined in- stinct ; the former is that instinct limited and circumscribed by the rules of prudence. How THEY WASH IN GERMANY. - Most American travellers in Germany, particularly of the gentler sex, have been astonished at the large amount of linen that is to be found in the dowry of every bride of even the hum- blest fortune, and this surprise not unfre quently turns to disgust upon discovering that the washing is never done more than once a month, and, in many noble families, not m...

Origins and Inbentions. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

0rfgíit£ anîï ínbenttonsu ON "THE Go."-The Queen's Head, in Duke-street, Loudon, was long known among its frequenters as "The Go." The fashion of the house, says the old chronicler, was to order spirits in a pewter quartern measure, which the drinker mixed with water accord- ing to his taste. It was frequently the fashion to say, "Now, I'll have another quartern, and go." In process of time the order was cut down to the last word, " Waiter, bring me a go ; " and from that house and that mode of expression the word extended, probably, over the whole kingdom as synonymous with a quartern of spirits. ' CLOCKS AND WATCHES.-The history of these time-keepers is curious. Clocks were first used in monasteries, and the word originally meant bell ; and the two-clock and bell-in calliug their inmates to their devotions, performed the same office. There were, however, tower-clocks ; not small ones for apartments. One was set up in Prance in 1734, and created great excitement, being the wonder o...

NEW ZEALAND SURF BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

NEW ZEALAND SURF BOATS. THOUGH the coast of New Zealand is in- dented with splendid harbours at but moderate distances from each other, several townships have been formed on exposed ocean beaches, where landing or embarkation THE PARRA GALLINACEA. is accomplished .with, discomfort and fre-| quently with danger. How these towns came to be so situated is a question that might puzzle a stranger, but the fact is, some of them were old whaling stations, and, being centrally placed in fine sheep country, the settlers employed the natives to take their wool off to the small craft which traded from these points to the principal entrepots for British commerce, rather than lose the time required to send the wool overland by drays, and incur the delay and risk of crossing the many rivers with their wide shingly beds and deep swift currents which, in the early days, I and to some extent even now, constitute the chief danger in New Zealand travelling.

P. MULCAHY'S SOAP AND CANDLE WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

, P. MÜLCAHY'S SOAP AND CANDI * WORKS. ^DLE MR. MUXCAHY'S works are situated in Botany Road, Redfern, and occupy a block of land about 120 feet square. An inspection of the process of manufacture, as carried out at this establishment, is not without iuterest as only articles of first-class quality are made' and it is the only manufactory in the colony at which candles are produced by machinery. Mr. Mulcahy's establishment has now beeii at work for twenty years, and, during that time, such a pitch of excellence has been ar- rived at, that its exhibits at our various shews have taken the following "honours:" Silver Medal, at Horticultural Show of 1868. 1st Prize, Agricultural Exhibition of 1869, and Honourable Mention in the years 1870, 1871, and 1872. The novel machinery in use is by C. Steele, of Melbourne, and the resources of the es- tablishment are equal to the production of tw elve tons of soap and six tons of candles, weekly. As we have before mentioned, inferior qualities in e...

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS AND THEIR INHABITANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

ECONOMIC USES OF SHELLS AND THEIR INHABITANTS. BY HENRY WOODWARD, F.G.S., F.Z.S. AT almost the earliest period in which we discover evidence of the existence of man, we fiad the primitive races dwelling upou the sea-shore, and subsisting largely upon mollusca ; leaving at one point shell-mounds of oyster-valves, associated with rudely fashioned flint knives, employed in opening them ; at another, the broken fragments of turbinated univalves, and the round stone hammers used in crushing the shell to procure the bonne bouchée it enclosed. , Nor did the mere cravings of' hunger impel them to seek shell-fish as articles of food, for in the limestone caverns of France and Belgium numerous remains of shells of mollusca have been met with, pierced with holes, for the purpose of attaching them to some article of dress or head-gear. Among the aborigines of the present day, in whatever region of the earth they dwell, the same economic uses of mollusca prevail, and their practices serve to thr...

Statistics. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

The largest orchard in the world is in California. It contains 426 acres, and more than 75,000 fruit trees. ^ It has been estimated that during the her- ring fishing which has just finished, upwards of 240,000,000 of herrings were landed at the fish wharf of Great Yarmouth. The port of London now possesses 4S8 acres (water) of docks, and nearly 3,000 acres of river waterway. The average number of vessels constantly moored in the port is about 850 ; and when the last Census was taken the floating population of the Thames between Fulham and Plumstead was returned by the Customs' officers as amounting to 5,540 per- sons.

THE GROWING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

THE GROWING OP WHEAT. IN preparing land for the growing of wheat, certain conditions require to be observed. Not the least important of these is the re- moval of all weeds from the soil, such as the roots of couch grass and knot grass. Owing to the dryness of the past seasons, cultivated lands are generally comparatively free of these root weeds. The soil, also, requires to be deeply stirred, but this deep stirring should not take place immediately preceding the seeding, as while wheat thrives best in a deep and tolerably compact soil, it seldom grows uniformly level, or ripens equally, where a portion of the subsoil has been recently brought to the surface immediately previous to the sowing of the seed. .Deep stirring should, therefore, precede the growing of wheat one or more years. While extremes should be'avoided, it is generally found to be beneficial to the wheat crop to have the land deeply and uniformly stirred. Much, however, depends upon the previous crops grown, the chara...

THE HONEY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

THE HONEY BEE. HONEY AND WAX. ANOTHER overlooked contribution of profit to tbe farmer from a despised aud little tbougbt-of source of Nature's bounty and beneficence. A mite of aid't is tnie, but these mites lead to large results when summed up together. Our Poultry estimate surprised us greatly ; yet we find, large as is the amount, that it is considered below the production, consumption, and value. Now our " little busy bee" is another waste consumer. In fact she, in finding her food, not only consumes what would be, as far as man is concerned, wasted and lost, but in supporting herself and progeny carries out a system of propagating a future and continuous supply of valuable food for her tribe, and fruits, flowers, and vege- tables to the use of man, which, without the bee's aid, would, in many cases, soon become barren and rapidly aisappear. The bee is, indeed, a source of great profit to mau in many ways. It provides from its stores, collected from Nature's gifts only, without ...

WIRE FENCING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

WIRE FENCING. THAT wire fencing will come into general use, we have hut little doubt. Every year it wi be more called foi', and generally employed wherever timber is scarce, lt is rapidly put up readily taken down, and easily removeable. The above engraving illustrates an important improvement to the ordinary mode of erection. Between the strong or straining posts, which may be placed 150 to 300 yards apart, the wires are run at the determined distances, through battens four inches by two and a-half (as shown), and which battens are kept about a rod apart, by wedging the iron tight. These battens may rest on the ground, or some may be pointed and driven into it. They keep in the wire at equal distances, and affording the wires intermediate support, prevent sagging, and, consequently, they do not require so much straining as in other plans. Cattle, and other stock, more clearly discern this fence, and also cannot push between the wires. The rails, as exhibited, may be made to occasio...

OUR SUPPLEMENT. MANILA GIRL WAITING FOR THE FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

OUR SUPPLEMENT. MANILA GIRL WAITING FOR THE FERRY. THE chromo-lithograph issued with this num- ber, is from a painting taken from life by Mr. N. Chevalier, for H.R.H. Prince Alfred. It represents a Manila girl of stately figure, awaiting at a landing place the arrival of the ferry-boat. The surrounding scenery is cha- racteristic and thoroughly in keeping, while the dark-skinued Manila beauty is thrown forward in bold relief. How jauntily she balances her basket of poultry on her head, while the broad plantain leaf keeps it from contact with her jetty hair-and what hair ! No pendent "waterfall," tho spoil of half a dozen foreign skulls-but her own by nature -a jetty, glossy, flossy mass, that might well be envied by our ball-room belles. Then her picturesque costume, with the amulet resting on the heaving bust, and, finally, the inevitable cigarette held jauntily between the lips-all serve to make up a most bewitching subject. Mr. Chevalier's painting became so popu- lar in England,...

A FARM OF 640 ACRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

A FARM OF 640 ACRES. E TflE ground plan »hows the aub-division of the land, drawn to the scale below. The ground is undu- lating, with a creek running through it into the river, which forms the southern boundary of the roperty. A main road bounds it on the north, and ush land surrounds, which, if fortunately owned by the proprietor of the farm, will add greatly to its profitable working. The farm is sub-divided into 16 fields of about 40 acres each. The house, farm build- ings, gardens, vineyards, &c, are placed on the spur of high land which fortnately runs into the property: this affords security against Hoods, which are more to be provided against than droughts. Floods, in an instant, destroy the labour of years and carry away the accumulations of a lifetime, and cannot, in many eases, be guarded against ; while drought may be par- tially arrested, if not quite overcome, by drainage and irrigation. The farm buildings will be found con- venient, as future larger detached d...

THE FOOT-AND-MOUTH DISEASE. Turc following is the description given by Mr^ Graham Mitchell of it :-" The foot-and mouth disease is au eruptive febrile affection, and may be classed amongst the exanthe- mata. These diseases are generally found affecting animals once in a life-time. These fevers run a certain" ascertained course, having several stages in their development, and are generally fatal when internal organs are involved, and are all highly contagious. The symptoms attending the development of murrain are well marked-there are more or less symptoms of general fever, indicated by the animal temperature being alternately in- creased or diminished, with disinclination to feed ; rumination may be more or less ar- rested, according to the extent the mouth and tongue are involved. In connexion with the fever we havo an eruption, vesicular in its nature, occurring in those parts of the skin most vascular-between the digits, on the udder, inside the thighs, on the dental pad, and alo...
