PIGEONS. THE JACOBIN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902
PIGEONS. The Jacouin. Jacobins are rather pretty pigeons, but excellent birds of thiB variety are very scarce and valuable. They are usually called Jacks, and cost from 5s. to £2 JOj. per pail ; the latter price, of course, is paid only when tbey are extraordinarily good specimens. Jacobins are very good breeders, usually having several broods every year. They are of several varieties, namely, reds, yellows, and blacks, which are the most valuable colours ; but there are also wnites, DiuoB, duns, and mottles. Jacobins have a ranpe of inverted feathers on the. back of their head, which turnB towards the head, and so form? a hcod nearly covering the whole head. The closer and more compact the feathers grow to the head and mors valu able does the bird become. The Jacobin has email and short feat, but a very long tail. The best food for Jacobins are grain and maize. It is rarely that a hardier variety of bird than the Jacobin is met with. The German Tot. The home of the German Toy iB Ge...

Farm and Garden. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. MODERN FOTATO CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902
jFarm and Garden. ORIGINAL ARTICLE?. ttODERN POTATO CULTIVATION. 3KF the land is inclined to be heavy it dB should be carefully cross ploughed jgj; and thoroughly harrowed, using, if necessary, a leve'.ler or fine-tooth harrow in order that the soil may be well pulverised, after .which planting may be done. Of course it is well understood that good crops cannot be raised from poor seed, and the intelligent farmer will plant only strong, vigorous seel potatoes raised on land in some other locality. Increased yield in crop will pay the extra cost of the best seed many times over. It has been clearly demonstrated that in cutting seed potatoes the highest yield cat. nf f.w atrau to the piece. The plan of Using rather heavy l»nd, especially if clayey, for grow ing potatoes, would not ordinarily be a good one, except for dry Beasoss. It would certainly be hazardous on such land to manure in drills, as it would be likely to result in a crop badly affected by rot. It used to be the general ...
A DOG'S ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902
A DOG'S ADVENTURE. The Rev. K. Stote Fox writes to the ?Free Press.*: 'Perhaps some of your readers may be interested | in the follow ing account of the wonderful escape of my collie dog under very unusual circum stances. About & fortnight since he haB . been taken ont for exercise, he ran after a rabbit, but did not readily reappear. As this is no unusual circumstance, it excited no surprise. He has often fol lowed carts passing on the road and re turned in a week or two. On oc casion a full week elapsed, when Mrs. rox, going round the premises, heard as she thought a low moaning. It immedi ately occurred to her that it might be our poor dog embedded in a part of one of the chalk pits near which she was passing. Proper assistance being immediately pro cured, after half an hour's digging the collie was unearthed, very little tho worse for his eight days' incarceration . He had apparently followed the rabbit into a chamber dug ont by the men who formerly worked in the pits, a...

Doctors certified Bhe had no organic disease, and a specialist passed her on to our author, whose account we shall now quote in order to give our readers an idea of the procedure adopted by the hypynotist : — ' I was able to secure a quiet subjective condition between sleeping and waking, but without loss of consciousness. She heaTd the suggestions in an imperfect, indifferent way, as if at a great distance. Suggestions were as follows : — You have no organic disease; there is no reason why yon should not be a perfectly well woman. You will become perfectl...
