The young cane and maize has all been injured more or less ; it is considered that almost half of the Docember planting of the latter is spoiled.

THIRTEEN GRAVE MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 21 January 1898

THIRTEEN GRAVE MISTAKES. To yield to immaterial trifles. To look for perfection in our own actions. To endeavour to mould all disposi tions alike. , To expect uniformity of opinion in this world. To expect to be able: to understand everything. To believe only what our finite minds can grasp. To look for judgment and experi ence in youth. by our own. Not to make allowances for the in firmities of others. To worry ourselves and others with what cannot be remedied. To consider everything impossible that we cannot perform. Not to alleviate all that needs alleviation, as far as lies in our power. It is a great mistake to set up your own standard of right and wrong, 'and udge people accoruingiy.

THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 21 January 1898

THE HOUSEHOLD. A New Cure for Influenza. — The Casseler Tageblatt publishes a cure for influenza, which is said to have proved very effectual in many cases. The prescription was given to the writer by a Swedish captain in the great influenza epidemic of 18S9 in Hamburg. Just before retiring to rest at night the patient should take a raw egg beaten up in a cup with the juice of 'half a lemon. The mixture must be swallowed at one gulp. The first thing the next morning another egg prepared in the same way should be taken an hour and a half before breakfast. If the dose is repeated for two nights and two mornings, and the patient kept warm, the influenza will completely disappear. The writer declares that he not only cured himself of a bad attack by this simple means, but that everyone who could be persuaded to try it found it equally successful.

Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Breeding for the Local and English Markets. PART III. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 21 January 1898

Poultry Notes. I»rol»silile Poultry Breeding for the 'Local and English 'Markets. From the Agricultural Gazette ofN.S.W. PART III. Poultry-keeping for farmers is the principal branch of the above subject, and can be entered upon in quite a cheerful spirit, it being one of the small things which they neglect, and which, if attended to in the proper way, would mean a much improved balance-sheet. Farmers haver all the elements of success in their surround ings, and everything necessary for the well-being of poultry, but appear to think they are too small a matter to 'trouble about. Fowls on a farm, or in a arm-yard, and having a free range, get the largest portion of their food for nothing, or at le?r,t at a very small cost, while small corn, undersized potatoes, and other waste products can be most profitably utilised. There is no cost for labour, nor charge for rent or buildings, and for these reasons alone fowls will not only pay, but pay well. The French farmer needs no one to impr...
