We never use a staff, but teach them to go and come quietly with a strap or rope in their ring. We keep our bulls in the stable with the cows, where they have full view of all that is going on, and we find that they etay much quieter than ill a box stall. As for exercise, as soon as tbo weather allows it, wo tether them near the barn with a chain around the horn, and fifteen feet more chain to tbe tether.

Fruit a Perfect Food. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 2 February 1894

Fruit a Perfect Food. Some people are afraid to eat fruit, thinking thnt tho fruit and diarrliooa aro always associated, when, if thoy understood the true cause of the diarrhooa they would know that it was C'Usod by eating meat. In hot wea ther moat putriae? with great rap:dity, and durincf this nrocess alkaloids aro formod which aro very poisonous, act ing as emetics and purgatives. It is true that fruit eaten groon or between meals will interfere with digestion, and cause tho boweh trouble, but use fruit that is perfectly ripn at meal time, and .only beneficial results will follow. Acids prevent calcareous degeneration, keeping the bones elastic as well as preventing tho accumulation of earthly matters. This is because of the Bolvent powor of tho acids j but manufactured are harmless, as are those which nature has prepared for us in tho various kinds of fruit. Fruit is a perfect food when fully ripe, and if it were in daily use from youth to age, there would be less gout, gall st ...

The steamer sighted a nativo dhow 450 miles south east of the coast of Sierra Leone. The Yar rawonga bore down, and found three men wno wero unaDie io aia rnein selvt s. Thero was nothing in the craft save a few rag« of cluthing aud a bundle of putrid fish. The unfortun ate men were in the last stage of star vation. From statements made by one of them it seems that they wore blown out to sea, and lost their sails. Thoy had been drifting for 15 days, and 4 of their number had died of starvation, and were thrown overboard. A woman named Patch, living at Dunedin (N.Z) swallowed three boxes of matiheB last week and died on Sun day, havibg refused to tell the cause of her illness.

They have des troyed numbers of tress around here. — & nawflr ? nt. flrnf. I ho upper limbs of the trees, generally when they are about lin.. in diameter, and from there work downward, boring in the centre of the branch round the pith. This invariably weakens, and ultimately destroys the branch, but this does not take place till' after the borer has already made a considerable burrow. Any branch, therefore, that showB the least signs of being attacked should be removed at once and burned. Tho cut should be'carefully examined, and if the centre of the remaining part of the branch shows a bore-hole it should be further cut away aud des troyed. Pushing a wire down a bore hole is often very successful in killing the insect, and where tbe trunk has already been invaded, about the only means to get ...
