The Farm and Garden. CROSS-BREEDING AND DAIRY PROFITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

The Farm and Garden. i CnOSS IlllEEBIXO AND DAIRY MIOFITS. The only way to improro the common herd o£ Co wb ia to breed up, which means cross breeding. Mr. Henry Simmons, member of tbe British Dairy Conference, uaya croBs breeaing is easily said, but so far as my ?experience has gone it iB somewhat difficult to carry on with success. Having selected your fancy as to the two pure breeds from which you start, the first cross is simple enough, and often results in some very extra ordinary animals, as your idea may be for the production of beef or milk ; but the difficulty I havo found is in carrying on the cross, as after using the pure sire the second or third time the offspring usually possesses all the charficteristics of the male progenitor. On tho other band, if you leave the pure breed and carry on with the produce of the cross, a i mongrel breed is apt to result. In a very well thought out article on the Jersey cow, lately written by John F. Hall, in the Jour nal of the Bath and...

Familiar Songs. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Familiar Songs. Mother Goose was a Boston woman, born in tho shadow of Bunker Hill Monument. At the age of 27 the demure Puritan maiden, Elizabeth Foster, became the wife of Isaac Goose, a middle-aged widower with ten children. In a few years °she added six more!of her own, and was thus the owner of a brood of 16 goslings. Here the Goose family lived and prospered for many happy years. Mother Goose had acheerful disposition and was a delightful singer. She loved to gather her own and the neigh bours' children and entertain them for hours wit.b song and story— some of them her own impromptu, Bomo she remembered from childhood, some she read, and some that seemed to have always been in her memory. The children liatened with tireless de light, and Mother Goose gained a local reputation. By-and bye her lovely daughter, grown to woman hood, became tho wife of one Thomas Fleet, a printer. The young husband greatly enjoyed these nursery concerts, which went on as long as there were childre...

Literary News, Notes, Etc. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Literary News, Notes, Etc. An unpublished letter by Charles DickenB ia made Che text of an article on brothers that do not turn out well, by a writer in the Illustrated London N-avs. Frederick Dickens was a frequent source of anxiety to the novelist. He died in 18G8, and Charles Dickens wrote of him that hia ' was a wasted life, but God forbid that I Bhould be hard upon it.' This leads up to the unpublished letter, which is introduced by the News correspondent; as follows : — ' Frederick Dickens did not agree with his wife — a beautiful woman, who possessed what may be called even genius as a musician. It was uu iuconx[jnLj.uim.y ui iu tuib however. The divergence was a vital one j and the friends of the lady — as might bo expected — made indignant appeal to tho famous member of the hus band's family. They, no doubt, supposed, in their panic of distress, that Dickons, with all his reputa tion, could intervene with effect: and thev did not liesitate to hint at the scandal which -*oul...

Serious Thoughts. A LOVE THAT DOES NOT CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Serious Thoughts. I A LOVE THAT DOES NOT CHANGE. Human lovo may change. The friendship of last year has grown cold. The gentle ness of yesterday has turned to severity. But it is never thus with God's love. It is eternal. Our experience of it may bo variable, but there is no variableness in tho love. Our lives may change; our consciousness of His lovo may fade out, but the love clings forever; the gentleness of God abides eternal. ' For the mountains shall depart, and hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall tho cove nant of my peace bo removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.' There is never a moment nor any experience in tho life of a true Christian, from the heart of which a message may not instantly be sent up to God, and back to which help may not instantly come. God is not off in some remote heaven merely. He is not away afc the top of the long, steep life ladder, looking down upon us in serene calm and watching us as wo struggle upwa...

But now he said to himself : ' Those scamps mean to rob his grape-vines to night. That'll make him anything but a good natured man to-morrow. I wish I could inanago , somehow to lethira know of their little scheme.' How thankful he himself would have been for I information which might have prevented tho steal ing oE his uncle's horse ! He thought of that, and resolved that in this case he would do as he would ba done bv. ' I'll go on and tell him myaelf. That will make an excuse for calling on him. Then I will do what seems best about speaking of Dandy.' It cannot be denied that in this affair Kit's mo tives wore mixed as are tho motives of most of us.

A TOUCHING STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

A TOUCHING STORY. 1 A touching story is told in connection with the work of the Countess of Huntingdon among the colliers in the English Black Country. Finding that many of these poor miners had never heard the name of God or of Christ, she sent out preachers to hold meetings among them in the open air. Whitefield, Venn, the Wesleys were among V,oIr,(,va In a cabin on her estate there was a crippled blind 6irl, named Eliza Poulard, who heard of this great work. She was carried to the castle, and asked to see Lady Huntingdon. ' Can I help ?' she inquired, humbly. ' I never have done anything for God.' The servants would havo driveu her away, but the countess interfered. ' She is lame and blind, and scared at her own voice,' they said. ' God calls His own messengers,' replied the countess. ' Curry her to the meeting to-night at the mines.' 'Now,' says the old chronic'or, 'Eliza, in her solitude, had learned many hymns, and her voice was of that tone that it would wring the heart of a ...

HOW BOOTH PRATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

HOW BOOTH' PRAYED. ' Speaking ot Edwin Booth, said an old Jady, reminds me of a story my husband used to tell of a memorable encounter with tho elder Booth. He £my husband) was travelling on horseback through the south before our marriage, when stress of weather made him take refuge in the home of the great actor. He was ensconced in tho guest cham ber for the night and was just dropping off to sleep as his unlocked door slowly opened. Ho started up t» Bee his host enter, bearing aloft a candle that cast a sickly ray across the bed. Advancing with measured tread, he asked in a low, deep voice : ' Have you prayad to-night ?' The guest admitted that his devotions had been massed. ' Rise, kneel lsy that bedside and say the Lord's prayer,' was the next speech. Impressed by his manner, my husband tumbled out of bed, fell on his knees and repeated the words of the prayer. ' Ib that all you make out of the grandest utter ance in literature P' cried Booth.

Odd Things Worth Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Odd Things Worth Knowing. Near the Gulf of Aden, on the African shore, and eonnecting the lake of Assal with the sea, there is a river which does not flow to, but from the ocean and towards the inland. Tho surface of the lake is seven hundred feet above the sea level, and it is fed by this river, which is twenty-two miles long. Another strange fact is that the river furnishes enough water to counterbalance the great evaporation of the lake, and so the surface of the latter remains at a uniform level year after year. When the first excavations were being made in the buried city of Pompeii, some American tourists found jars of preserved figs in the pantry of a house. One of them was opened, and ihe fruit, which had been thero for two thousand years, was found to be fresh and good. It had been put into tho jars in a heated state, an aperture which had been left for tho steam to escape having been after wards filled with wax. The next year, fruit can ning was begun in the United States....

It was a colonel who, according to fable, declared that on a voyage round tho Capo his ship was spoken (thousands of miles from land) by a man in a tub who would not come on board tho ship, but took in a supply of biscuit and water, and was left in mid-ocean. It was n colonel from whom uiu wny ammo escaped oy entering a Datnboo tail first, after tho colonel had twice pulled it from that refuge by the tail. And, according to popular belief, a colonel told that story about the quail, which nearly resulted in his prompt discomfiture. For that colonel described a flight of quail that clouded tho sky, and then, having settled, covered tho parade ground in close-packed swarm ; and ho tol...

Boarding his Magpie. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Boarding his Magpie. Doctor Glynn, a benevolent but eccentric physi cian of Cambridge, England, was once consulted by a poor woman about her only son, too ill to be brought to the doctor's office. The maternal anxiety so affected the doctor that he went several times to see the boy, though the ronds were almost impassable for a carriage, and supplied him with bark and port wine at his own expense. The boy recovered, and one morning the mother entered the doctor's room, bringing a large wicker Kootot ' We can't get no rest, doctor,' said she, ' for thinking of the trouble you have had, and so my boy resolved this morning to send you his pet magpie.' The doctor looked at the bird, remarked that he was a fine fellow, and then continued ; ' I am very thankful to your son, and very proud of his present : but I am a good deal from home, and my servant is a careless fellow, and I am afraid that he might forget to feed him. I must there fore request you to keep him for me, and I will allow ...

A Wolf Hunt. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

A Wolf Hunt. I Sport, in tho Spanish eenBe of the word, lias almost become a synonym of prize-fights j but in Spanish America tho popular malanzas are by no mcanB confined to the combata of tho bull-ring. Ihe country population, from tho poorest cowherd to tho wealthiest planter, are addictcd to a variety of field-sports j so, much, indeed, that tho badger baiting gentry of merry old England would havo felt more at home in modern Mexico than iu tho most un-Sabbatarian rogion of our own republic. In tho bordor stato? of Chihuahua (pronounced Chee-wii-wa) and Sonora, for instance, nearly every inuu-owner Keeps a puck of fighting-hounds, and makes it hia business to find work for them. Thero is a tradition that the fiorco galgos, or blood hounds, of the early Spanish colonists were imported from Moorish Spain, and originally, per haps, from Moorish Africa ; but, at all events their broed has not degenerated in tho climate of the American tropics, and tho hounds of the Sonora rancheros ...
