Poultry Notes. K'l'ofttaltle Poultry ISreeding for flic ILoeal :iu-l Kn^lish Markets. Front the. Agricultural Gazette of N.S.W. BY OEO. BRAD3HAW. - PART V. Selection of Stock. In selecting either fowls or animals for brooding, a moat important matter ia consideration of the work which they have to do, for on tho selection and mating inay depend the future profit, or loan ; and in connection with poultry thoro is no stock which show such variations between tho breods, as well as marked din'oronces betwoon individual members of the same breod, duu to tho variod conditions under which they are kopt. To begin with, therefore, I should say that tho malo bird iufluonce3 tho shape, external structure, and general outward appenranco. Hence, it is tho cock bird we must look to when we require a large Bizo of framo, it being a too well-known fact that a small male bird seldom breeds largo ones.

Why Gold is Used for Filling [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

Why Gold is Used for Filling Teeth. — It is not generally understood that there are scientific reasons for the employment of this metal. Gold can be welded into a solid mass while cold. It also can be pressed into the smallest cavities and depressions. When once the cavity is properly cleaned, and the gold carefully put in, care being taken that it fills every particle of space, the union of teeth and filling is as nearly perfect as is possible without the action of heat. , A gold filling may be built up to almost any size or shape required. None of the acid secretions of the mouth or stomach have any effect upon it. Pottery Over 3,000 Years Old. — In digging out the colossal statue of Rameses II., 9ft. 4'in. of Nile mud had to be removed before the platform was reached. It is known that this plat form was laid in the year 1361 B.C., when Rameses was still living, There fore 3j^in. of accumulated Nile mud represents the lapse of a century, it being known that 3,200 years have passed...

The Presence of Mind ok Goats. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

The Presence of Mind of Goats. — Like his fellow-mountainer, the ass, the goat has unshakable nerves, and will keep its presence of mind even when exposed to sudden and unaccus tomed danger. How great a contrast is it in tnis respect to tne sneep, wmen is always liable to sudden seizures of panic, and which, when frightened, invariably loses its head ! This in dependence and sangfroid of the goat has proved of service to its masters on many occasions. It used to be the custom in almost all stables containing a number of valuable horses to keep a goat, which was allowed the free run of the building. The reason given was that in the case of fire, when terrified horses will sometimes refuse to leave the stables, and are therefore in great danger of perishing, such a goat will lead the way with the most perfect calTiness, and, encouraged by this example, the bewildered horses will follow it, and so escape destruc tion.

The Romance of Two Lives. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

The Romance of Two Lives, — : ? *+4 ? BY GROSVENOR BUNSTER. PART I. When old John Horrocks died, the friends who attended hi^ funeral, in great numbers, were unanimous in their agreement that he would 'cut up' lor ;£ioo,ooo at least. It was natural that a revulsion of all feeling of respect for a man, albeit deceased, who had so grossly flouted public opinion, should take place among the prophets, when, a week afterwards, it was ascer tained that the old man had died hopelessly insolvent. The house of cards was shattered. The millionaire of yesterday, respected, bowed down to, was now spoken of as an imposter and humbug. And yet the deceased gentleman had died, very probably, as most of his critics would die, when their turn came. For millionaires may live in splendour, and keep the ball rolling for years, who are, all the time, arrant paupers, if the truth were made known. But the truth is sometimes not made known until the liar is beyond touch, and when the master mind and hand wh...

SWALLOWING PINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

SWALLOWING PINS. Perhaps the most remarkable story about a pin-stvallower is that of Kitty Hudson, a heroic member of the weaker sex, who used to.be.tUe post-runner between Nottingham arid the village of bur birth, Arnold. In 1771, when she was six jears of age, Kitty was transferred from her home in the village to the care of her grand father, who was the sexton to St. Mary's, in Nottingham. His housekeeper used to re ward the littlo maid with a stick of toffee for every mouthful of pins she gathered iu sweep ing the pews and aisles of the church. Tbe poor child folio ned tho practice till she could ueither eat, drink, nor sleep without pins or needles in her mouth. Often she would get out of bed to supply herself with them in order to induce sleep. Of coursa shu swallowed many of them ; to such an extent did she carry this strange prac tice ere it was discovered by her friends that her double teeth had. almost disappeared. At length she began- to perceive a coi:atunt numb ness in ...

RUINED BY A RAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

RUINED BY A RAT. The occupier of a house in Germany that was overrun with rats, at last, after attempting unsuccessfully many contrivances for clearing them out, managed to catch one. He tied a string of small bells round its neck and set it at liberty. Rejoining its ' companions/ it so tngutenea tnem witn its constantly jingling bells that they all fled. The bell-bearer itself found refuge in uneigbbouringhouse, the abode up till then of a very happy family. Suddenly, however, instead of happiness, there was con sternation,; for unexpectedly there began to be 'heard/the mysterious jingling of bells, which would break out at different; times, both of the day and night, and at different places. So mysteriously did these noises come and die away that the inmates of the house began to think it haunted, mid their minds became filled with superstitious fears. The servauts, unable to endure t-ui;h dreadfnl torture, left; the children, becoming neglected, caught fever ; while the parents, ...

THE COACHMAN'S CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

THE COACHMAN'S CHARACTER. The following anecdote ot the late Lord Mansfield was told by his lordship himself : — Having turned oil' his coachman for certain acts of peculation, tho Fellow begged his lorti ship to give him a character to enable him to obtain another sitiuttiou. ' What kind of n character can I eive vou ? ' said his lordship. ' Oh ! uiy lord, uny character your lord-ihip pleases to give me I shall most thankfully receive.' Lord Mansfield accordingly sat down and wrote as follows : — 'The bearer has served me three years iu the capacity ot coaenmau. ±ie is an able clriver, aud a very sober man. 1 discharged him he cause he cheated me.' The man thanked him and went off. A few mornings after, when his lordship was going out of his door to step into a coach for Westminster Hall, a man in a handsome livery made him a low bow, and to his surprise he re cognised his late coachman. .-.-., 'Why, John,' said bis lordship,- ' you seem, to have got an excellent place.
