MATING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 8 February 1877
MATING EXTRAORDINARY. A correspondent of the Poultry Review tells the following rather strange story of the mating of birds : Seeing in many numbers of your invaluable paper, in vitations to fanciers to send you ac counts of the crtraordiuary matching or mating of birds, I take the liberty of sending the following as likely to interest brother fanciers. I have now in my loft an African owl dock that I mated with a hen of the sainekind; they lived h rrcoaiously together, and raised last seasoin five pairs of young. During the winter I had the misfortune to lose the heu, when the cock, beiiig a lively little fellow, set abbiut findilng aniotiher wife for himself. After a few days he suc ceeded in finding a wife in an unmated agate hen, who, in due course of time, laid the usual couple of eggs, he (the owl) assisting her regularly in incubating them ; but when flying about the loft, I noticed he was pay ng marked attention to a blue Antwerp hen, who, in a fort night after the agate lai...

HAPPINESS AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 8 February 1877
HAPPINESS AT HOME. ....It has been said by a philosocpher that every cross word uttered, or angry feeling experienced._leaves'its unerring mark on the face. .-This can be verified by a close ob'servation of the countenances of those around us, whose tempers -nd habits are familiar to us, and its truth thus estab lished. And if the lineamijents of the face shorw traces of such things; how muuch more must the general, nioral and mental system be affected by thein ? Nothing is more susceptible of proof than the state ment that one angry word brings on another, except the good old biblical .saying, "that a soft answer turneth away wrath :''. Many people, really possessed of a :sincere desire to do right in all things; allow thenmselves to fall into the habit of using uingentle and even unkind words to those around them when, if their atte~tion 'were called to the fact in the 'right ,way, they Would be astonished at themselvies. They mean no harm, but they do harm, both to themselves and...
THE HORSE PLAGUE IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 8 February 1877
TILE H0iOSE PLAGUE' IN. EGr??T. The Engl ish Veterinarian gives some accounts of the horse plague in Egypt from which we glean that a virulent from of anthracoid disease is re ported to exist among horses in that country. The term " equine typhus" is applied to the affection, but there does not seem to b, any reason for the sug gestion that the disease is of the nature of typhus. The malady, it is presumed, was contracted during the Abysiunian ex pedition. Some ,f the Egyptian horses which accompanied the expedition were first attacked at Mass )wah, and many of themr died, others recovered, and these or others which had been exposed to the atfec,:on inio u:ed it into Egyp'. About the month of July tue epizoot:; was ob served at Ismalio. In August it reached Cairo, and spread rapidly to the towns of the Delta. In Zagaziug the losses among horses and mules haive been considerable, anl in the country around still more serious resuls of the progress of the malady ;are reported. The symp...

HERDS AFFECTED BY IMPURE WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 8 February 1877
HERDS AFFECT'ED BY IMPURE WA TE'E. During the drought that has been prevail ing, we he.r of trouble in some herds on account of the condition of water where the cows slake their thirst. Water, at such times not unfrequently becomes charged with vegetable matter to such an extent as to be unhealthy. The refuse from cheese factories, when turned into streams where cows drink, poisons, to a greater or les&s degree, the water. When the stream is large and rapid, the ill effects of such water may notbesoapparent; but in times of drouth and low water, dysentery and other diseases not unfrequently occur. Dr. Bellews men tions a case at the Nottingham Assizes, in July, 1836, at which it wasproved that dysen. tery in an aggravated form was caused in cattle by the use of water in putrescent veget:ble matter, produced by the refuse of a starch factory. All the cows, calves, and horses which drank of this water became sick, and in eight years the plantiff lost twenty-four cows and nine ...
SELECTING HORSES BY THEIR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 8 February 1877
SELECTING HORSES BY THEIR. COLOR. MIost persons have their-choice in:re= gard to the color of horses, but we pre sume few of our readers ever thought it had anything to do with speede .or strength. A correspondent of theh'eng-: lish Farmer, however, seems to thinik that there is no doubt that fashion, withre gard to color, has been-greatly influenced by the special qualities usually found in combination with special tints or shades ; though it by no means follows that a colt unerringlyexhibits the same colored hide' as its immediate parents. A writer at the close of the last century stated very broadly that not only among the Turkish horses were many of pure white color, but that in Pets a there were studs of them, several thousands in number; while it is a well-known fact that until after the death of Prince Albert, the Queen's state carriage was drawn by eight cream-colored horses, of whom a succes sion is still kept up at Hampton Court., Strange'to say, however, while the cream c...
