The Influence of Imagination in Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

The Influence of Imnagination in Breeding. Professor Wallace's newly-issued b-oCk oc Farm LiveStock has the following pasnage on the subject of the influence of inognaetion on breeding, especially with regard to color: " One of the most remarkable iunstances of the influence of imagination on the color of cattle lts within the la t few vears ,eon closely studied at Glanmis in Lord Stralhmore's Iplled Angus herd, numbering about thirty cows of the mostly lhghly prized strains of blood. As the results of the experiment ate so interesting, and as the facts have not hitherto been pub lished, we give them in detail. The cows with bull calves were annually separated from the cows with heifer calves wkhen turned out in May, and the herd was thus grazed in two divisions of about equal numbers 'which for convenience, we shall term A and B), but from year to year the cows fornumg there divisions variedwith thesexes of their calves. It was observed for a nmhber of years that about 20 per cent....

The Clay Deposits. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

The Clay Deposits. A oOOD deal has been said regarding the deposits of white clay to be found in Kilmurray's Hill; and from time to time rumors have gained currency to the effect that the clay was to be utilised for pottery making, &c., but so far noth ing has been done in the matter. A movement, however, having for its object the development of a new industry is on foot, and we are daily expecting to hear something definite in connection there with. Mr. W. Colbon, acting on behalf of a Melbourne syndicate, is negotiating with Mr. Alexander McLeod, on whose land deposits are also to be found, for the purchase of an enormous quantity of clay at so much per ton. Should it be found that the clay can be successfully treated and is suitable for the purposes for which it is required, it will be of the utmost importance to Broadford, as the deposits are illimitable, and it is more than likely that a lead of gold will be discovered in connection with them. Mr Derum to Mr Tonkin: Wou...

CONCERNING CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

CDNCERNINC CRICXET. Concerning cricket, "The Neow English Dictionary" (Clarendon Press) does no (says the " Daily New"e) add much to what the studious have compiled in Box's epoch makinghistoryof the game, and in theBad minton Book. The Guildford docun.ent of 159S was already familiar, and is merely veri fied. John Denwick, a coroner for Surrey in Queen Elizabeth's reign, swore that he had played "Crockett" on a certain piece of ground some forty years before, and no doubt it was not a new game then, though inferior to that now exhibited at the Oval. This is the earliest known reference. The word may be the same as the French " criquets" which was the stick aimed at in bowls. A stump, later developed into two, and again into the wicket of three stumps, would be a "cri. quet"; the word is quoted as early as 147S. The Dictionary does not believe in the suggested derivation from "cricket," a stool, as in stool ball, an early rudimentary form of cricket, for "cricket, a stool, is not in...

The quality ranged fromn medium to useful deseriptionus, with the exception of one specially prime flck from Riverina.

From France to Russia by Balloon. -o A1. de Savine intends to start in the car of a balloon from the Champ de Mare, Paris, in the middleof August, and says (a" Standard" telegram reports) he is confident of beingable to reach Russia in a few days without hie ballooahavingdescended.M.Savine recognises that motive power is at present powerless to overcome atmospheria currents, but he thinks he has solvedthe problem of utilising those currents, which at various heights are so different and numerous. M. Savine proposes to make use of an ordinary gas balloon coupled underneath to a Montgolfier. His balloon is to contain 3200 cubic metres of gas, and is to be strong enough to carry the whole weight of his apparatus. That balloon th. I.u.io-* ..theyFrench.capital,has a steel rope 40 metres long, to the end of which is attached a 1000 cubiometre Montgolfler furnished with a car and heating apparatus.

Once More. -o Once more along the river-side Are willow-t.?sele swinging : Once more among the woodlands wjde Are robins gaily singing ; Once more the goree blooms on the fells, The heather on the mountains; Once more the cowslips ring their bell Above the laughing fountains, Y 'ce more the wood anemones J t'Are flatt'ring in the shadows. The daisies star the verdant leas, The buttercups the meadows; Once more the lanuid violet opel 1Her dewy eyes at morning; Once more the southern-lying slopes The bluebells are adorning. Once more ea;h truant breeze that blows Through wood and forest eearches, To steal from orchard boughs their snows, The perfume from the larches; 0 They set the lances of the wheat In mimin tilting motion, And speed once more the swallow flee Across the briny ocean. Once more the whirring corncrake cries Amid the dew-wet clover, O'er woodlands green the cuckoo flies, A merry, careless rover; The leafy woods are all a-chime, The skylark's notes are thrilling; Once m...

Agricultural Journals. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

Agricultural Journals. At the World's Fair Congress IMrs A. F. Whittaker, connected with the New England "Farmer," read a paper entitled "Three fourths of a Century in Farmt Journalism." The subject was treated largely from a histori cal standpoint, but the ceiclusioes arrived at in discussing the position of the agricultural journal to its patrons are worthy of ronsiders tion. On this branch of the subject the paper says : "Class journalism has one inherent difl. nulty. Any conscientious newspaper publisher feels the responsibility of his position, and has an earnest ambition to hell, the world; at the same time his newspaper is a coammercial enter prise, and he must make his miesionary im pulses harmonise with getting a circulation. This at times is hard for anyone, but it is doubly so on a class cr :rde. paper, where the income depends on susceesfully applealing to the tastes and prejudices oi a single seuplfation.

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN At the Ontario station, Canada, in three years' trial the white-fleshed turnips show larger average yields than the yellow-fleshed, as21l.8 tons to 15.4 tone. In mangels, at the same station, the long varieties oatyield the globe varieties, as 24"G tons to 18.8 tons per acre. Of eagarbeets the White Siberian, omn. maonly grown there for feeding, gave the largest I yield per acre-l'7 tons, or 5i0 bushels. In the trials at Ohio Station the sugar beets, though yielding less gross weight than the mangels, gave more nutriment per acre. James Wilson, director of the Iowa Experi. meat Station, says ripening cream is a fine art. His rules are: In winter, let the cream stand forty-eight hours at 6Odeg. In ~ummer, when churning every day, ripening is hastened by adding a gallon of buttenoilk to every 100 gallons of cream. While ripening, the cream needs frequent stirring and is not likely to get too muchof it. l:ipe cream has a granuularap vearance and aslightly acid taste...

British and Foreign Briefs. ·---o-- Canton, with its mil'ion inhabitants, is a strange place. The huge wall sur rounding it, 15ft to 25ft wide, is six rifles in circuit, the whole being filled up with a maze of narrow lanes. The ilace is full of temples ; every street has an altar. Some L;00.000 of the inhabitants live on boats. The Duke and Duchess of York have since their arrival at Sandringhaln had their wishes for privacy respected, and have been able to walk and drive without being troubled by sightseers. Their Royal llighnlesses were much gratified at the reception given them on their arrival at Sandringham. Four L1,000,000 bank notes have been struck at the Bank of England.

A Remarkable Child. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

A Remarkable Child. The marvellous child mentioned in the Chinese classics who, at four years old, was able to recite the 3GO verses of the Tang poetry, as well as the Ancient Book of Odce, has been eclipsed by an infant prodigy of the same age, who has pre. sented himself at the recent Licentiate examinations in Hong ong Kong as a candidate for literary honors. The P'aynu Chensien personally examined this tiny candidate, and found that the child could write a concise essay on the subject that had been given him, although of course in an infantile scrawl. It is observed by a Iteal commentator that it now remains rnly for the Literary Chancellor to " pass' the prodigy era he can be styled as "haring entered the portals of the Dragon'e gates " that is. obtained the degree of" Sin-ts'ai, ' or Licentiate. -a

THE YOUNG FOLKS. The Baby Mouse's First Outing. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

THE YOUNG FOLKS. The Baby Mouse's First Outing. The first I remember of life is this world WTas a q,'moa f,-. theo ncot i which mother lay carted, A nest she had made, that was beautifully warm, Where we knew not a foe and seemed safe from all harm. Quite snug in a corner we all of un lay, So warm and contented and happy all day; And "us" was a brother, two sisters and me, And prettier, happier mice couldn't be. One day, when oar mother was gone out for food, We all felt quite happy, and thought we were good, But we longed to make use-as every mouse knows- Of our legs and our feet, and our own little toes. So we talked it all over in our little way, Of who should start first from the nest where we lay; Then l'erkie raised up his young nose in the air, He knew nought of danger nor that word "Beware." So presently over the side of the nest We each poked our noses and did like the rest; And then, when so far we had tested our powers, We longed to go further, and make the world ours. Bu...

Chest Girth. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

Chest Girth. A Mr Hambleton, L.R.C.P., President of a " Society for Physical Developmet !' has written to the Secretary of State for War to ask leave to conduct certain trials of his plan to prevent consumption. Briefly be claims that the chest-girth of most men can be developed three, four or more inches in a month by systematic physical practice. He points out that preventible disease in the army costs half a million per annum. He then asserts that he can put anend to consumption as asource of waste by his physical methods. The claim appears to be founded on an ex perience of fifty cases. It needs no expert knowledge or argament to show- that the gymnasium has helped to develop many a chest into a robust state capable of resisting the germs of consumption; but AMr Hambleton will have to produce much stronger evidence than fifty cases of his own to convince the profession that the gymns ainm will cure lung tubetculnois. On referring to the " Medical Directory," we find that the aut...

POPULAR SCIENCE. Electric Shock. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

POPULAR SCIENCE. Electric Shock. After an investigation of a large number of deaths from electric shock, .\lesars liraud and Lacaswagne, of Lyons, have con cluded that electricity causes death either by producing mechanical lesions of the blood vessels and nervous system, or by stopping the respiration and the action of the heart. Deaths of the former class result from ighming and static discharges from power Iful batteries, but those of the second class are met with in enceks from the high tension currents used industrially. The two classes of deaths, another French writer adds, are distinguished also in practice by a most im portant fact. While disruptive discharces of the first class pr?duce death absolutely, the electric action in the second class frequently puts the victim in a state of apparent death from which he may be restored by artificial re spiratiou. Ilabbits have been revived after receiving a current of 25UO volts and 2) amnperes. a shock more powerful than is given i...

Snake and Mongoos. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 September 1893

Snake and MYLongoos. The monoos is a deadly enemy to snakes, and although a little creature, not in the least formidable in appearance, ithas no hesitation in attackin; the largest serpents. The author of "Sport in Southern India" thus describes the animal's method of warfare. "One of our officers," says the writer, "bad a tame mongoos, a charming little pet. Whenever we could procure a cobra, we used to turn it into an empty store-room which had a window high up from the ground, so that it was perfectly safe to stand there and look on. The cobra, when dropped from the bag or basket, would riggle into one of the corners of the room, and there coil himself up. The mongoos showed the greatest excitement when he was brought to the window, and would eagerly jump down into the room the ing. Iie would instantly round his back, making every hair stand out at right angles, and approach the cobra on tiptoe, with a peculiar humming kind of noise. The snake, in the meantime, would show signs o...
