KEEPING GOATS FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868
^KEEPING GOATS FOR MILK. In ancient times large flocks of goats were kept both for meat and milk. The flesh of a young kid was highly esteemed by epicureans in the days of yore. Large use was also made of goats' Tnilir. We moderners, ior some reason or other j make but little use of this animal. Here and tnere a goat is kept as a curiosity, but rarely with practical, utilitarian objects -in' TrinTtr lA/f^ n^aamra 4-Tia4* am Ann ^v^m*?^ of the cattle plague in Britain, the keeping of goats is being resorted to more exten sively, and milch goats command high prices. Having experimented with one of these animals the pasC summer, we feel qualified to express an opinion as to then merits. The goat in. question came under our observation in June last, having been bought by a neighbor shortly after her kid was weaned. She was then giving three quarts of milk daily. Some time afterwards her owner, requiring a larger supply of milk than her ladyship could furnish, 'concluded to purchase a co...
GRAPES AT CASTLE KENNEDY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868
- ♦ ? . . ? . GRAPES AT CASTLE KENNEDY. Taking into consideration the , size of bunch, berry, and color, the grapes at Castle Kennedy are even finer in the present than in any former season. Two large bunches on a white Nice vine were, on the 18th of last month, nearly full grown, and promised to color well and mature thoroughly. The berries were then above average size, close set and compact^ without being crowded, and presented well-formed clusters, with nu merous shoulders ; these bunches were both nearly of the same size, but the one will weigh at least 2 lb. more than the other, en account of being more compact. The following are the exact measure ments of the two bunches, as taken at the fore-mentioned date : — A line run across the shoulders of the largest bunch gave about 2 feet 7£ inches. When extended across the shoulders, and down to the point, and up the opposite side in a direct line, it gave 6 feet 4 inches ; and when the line was run round the shoulders, touching only...
HUNTING NOTES FROM IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868
? ' — . ? ? ! HUNTING NOTES FROM IRELAND. It forms a universal privilege to grumble about the climate ;, nor has the lovely weather that has visited Ireland since the. departure of legitimate summer found favor with the zealous devotees of the -chase, who prefer a clouded sky, woodland vegetation reeking from the effects of a night's -rain, and other character istics of a good scenting day ; but few of these have claddened the work of a morning's cub hunting. Under such circumstances there have not been many, if any, incidents of the chase in -Ireland worm recording. Nevertheless the enthusiasm of the Irish character set at nought the little inconveniences of an iron-bound sub soil,' -unpenetrated by the usual rains, and of the special blindness of the fences this season, and unheard-of quantities of grassatillchokingup the ditches. Nor can it rest content that an^early 'November date should herald the first bevy of redcoats at tne covert site, so many packs have for some : time pas...

INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VIOTOEIA. n?rom our own Correspondent.! When I last wrote you, breadstuffs were hardly so lively, although holders were firm in their demands at the quotations given.
