THE SCAVENGER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 10 September 1881
THE SCAVENGER. " Be thou faniiliar, but by no means vulgar." " Unessy lies the head that wears a crown*' wrote the immortal bard ; not more uneasy does it i ie than that which bears the title of " scavenger Lord help me ! I am surrounded. One fatherly fellow would like to meet me through the press, in a room, or on the moun- tain top. He's a strange fellow, but let him be. What sportsman ever shot an owl ; what falcon ever struck a bat ! He's also a stranger fellow, that scribe which hails from Richmond and figures in the Cum- berland'* indépendant, " His ingenuity is as- tounding ; more especially so when he spins his yarn about the Kurrajouger swindling the gro- cer. Of course the tale is quite original as re« gards place and nationality : but if our virtu- ous friend whose heart's blood would curdle at the mention of plagiarism, Would take the trouble to read that clever American farce entitled " Fast Train," he would find a most remarkable coincidence-that being the term by whic...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 10 September 1881
LOCAL AND GENERAL. REGISTRATION OF DOGS.-We beg,, to call the attention of our Richmond and Windsor friends that they should not delay registering théir canine pets before the expiration of the month.. Nothing can be gained by putting it off until the last moment when, perhaps, same unforseen accident might occur lo prevent its being done in time, thus causing additional expense and trouble. We also beg to remind dog-owners that no person, other than the police, is authorised to receive the fees, and no receipt will be held good but that of the Registrar, Mr. H. H. Becke, J.P. DOGMATIC FREE TRADERS.-lt has often been said of the English people that they are less accessible to what are called ideas dian almost any other of the progressive nations. If there is any truth in this, vt cannot certainly be added that they are easily persuaded to abandon ideas which they have adopted. Many years of agitation was needed to con- vince them of the virtues of Free Tr .ide ; bat - having accepte...

SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 10 September 1881
SPARKS. IT is amusing to see a clam putting on the airs of an ostrich ;-yet such side-splitters may be seen, or heard of, weekly. Sold again, my pippin ; sharp as you are you fail to see everything, ami haste to trumpet your own moleishness. Shall I bring the old SAINT round for your inspection ? That bully blusterer-old Boreas, was round some, Saturday and Sunday. " My eyes, Bill, what tiles and chimney pots around ona heads were flying!" Certain sportsmen (?) seem to take their gruel with an evident dislike ; because they j lose five bob upon Laycock, they call him a rogue, and contend that Mickey Rush (more power to him) had no right to win. A fowl proceeding was heard at the Temple of Justice on Tuesday ; "twas a game affair, but there was no crowing ;. and though a hen was in it there was hardly a ghost of a cackle. Poor Steve, after having secured a new coat, and had a cleaning-up during his last incarceration, is now again a victim-to what, shall we say,-luck, or misfortune ?...

PINS. Cum grano salis. " MÜSIC hath charms, &c." especially that waltz you know-then, what's the good of waltzes, when people don't, won't, or can't dance ; Mr.* Bandmaster had better then, in future, strike out the delightful delicious- ness of the mazy etherealized waltz, and go in for Moody and San key, and God save the Queen only-keep 'em always in stock. But that's not what I wanted to say. That Odd : Fellow's Banquet is the matter , I didn't see any body slewed, but, by all the glorious company ot thc cymbals ! the cornet and the I bassoon, and the trombone, and all the other " ones" seemed to be a little mixed. The I noise, sir, was enough to make the sphynx shudder and turn pale. The last trump can never sound so harsh or unpalatable as did our local wind instruments on that eventful night. The cause-Ijknow the effect-the Building, perhaps 1 Just so, that's it. So accustomed to aldermanic harmony, and mellifluous braying of the human voice, the four walls and roof tr...

THE FARMER. THE SORT OF GRASSES AND CLOVERS MOST SUITABLE FOR PERMANENT PASTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 10 September 1881
..THE FARMER. THE SORT OF GRASSES AND CLO- VERS MOST SUITABLE FOR PERMANENT PASTURES. " TRIS is, perhaps, the most important point in laying down land. All varieties of grasses and clovers possess affinities for par- ticular soils, and the success or failure of the future pasture depends very largely on the selection of suitable seeds. For instance, phleum pratense ^meadow catstail) revels in heavy wet loam, but perishes on chalk and sand. Cynosurus cristalus (crested dogstail,) will yield its full return of valuable food on the chalk mails and light loams, but soon dies I out on a cold clay. Anthoxanthum (sweet vernal grass) produces its beautifully scented blossoms on the lighter loams -and medium sands, but on a wet black soil soon ceases to exist. Trifolium repents perenne (perennial i white clover) will fatten sheep to perfection on rich land, but on poor soils, will scarcely be worth sowing ; and the same may be said of other kinds." " To obtain a good pasture,-, the grasses a...
