INSECTS AND FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

INSECTS AND EiOWEBS. I Some years ago Profesaor Eiley, of St. Louis, TT.S , made a singular discovery respecting the adaptation of insects to the needs of flowers. In some parts of Germany, and I believe in England also, American yuccas have been cultivated in conservatories on account of their showy blossoms, but they have invariably failed to produce oeed, and the reason of this is that we have no insects here that are capable of fertilising them. Tho lowers of the yucca plant are so constructed tbat it is impossible for the pollen to reach tbe sngma), it being glutinous and expelled from the anthem before the blossoms open. How a flower so peculiarly con structed could be fertilised was a puzzle to American naturalists until tho discovery was made that the work ib done by a small white moth that is actually shaped to the needs of this particular flower. Professor liiley found that the fetnule of this moth and the female only has the baoil jointof the maxillary palpus modified int...

A FAMOUS WELSH HERD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

A FAMOUS vrasn HERD . I The ancient breed of WelBh block cattle has been greatly improved within the last 20 i years in both North and South Walei. There ia some slight difference in the character of I tne oiacii cattle urea in the northern and in the southern counties of the Priucipality, although they were doubtless originally de rived from the same ancestors. The modern Welsh ox ia a nobie and picturesque animal. His quality of meat is not to bo excelled by that of any other breed. It ia equal in tex ture and flavour to that of tbe Q-alloway, or West Highland. A Welsh beast, judged by what is called the ' block test,' dies well — giving a large percentage of prime meat to offal. The c'ows are good milkers, and some years ago a Welsh cow from a Hertford shire herd took highest honours at one of the annual exhibitiona of the British Dairy Ifnnnoiin1 A „ r,„ „ I- ; „ „ „t ? 1 ? ? ; 1 1 ? _J j. iAH3ui.iuuuUj wucu uwc uuitL lectiru was the beat in the show.

My adjutant entered, and reported that a gipsy wanted to see me in private. A soldier (a gipsy) entered, and on my asking what: was the matter he told me that the enemy was approaching to surprise us. 'The outposts have heard nothing suspicious,' I said. 'No, your Higness, because the enemy is still a long way off.' ' But how do you know this ?' I asked. * Come to the window, your Highness/ answered tho man. ' Do you see those birds flying over the wood toward tho Bouth ?' ' Yes, I see them ; what then ?' ' What then I Do not birds sleep as well as men ? They would certainly n...

Characteristics cfthe Convict In two handsome volumes, liberally illustrated, Messrs. Chapman and Hall have just issued Major Arthur Griffiths's Secrets of the Prison-house. To start with, Major Griffiths has many interesting things to Bay about the characteristics of the con vict. ' Prisoners,' he s*ys, ' are very much like other human beings, agitated by the same joys and sorrows. But, while acknowledging this universal kinshin. tbev have verv distinctive features of their own, and those are not congenital, but are mainly cauf ed by their environment, and the more or less artificial conditions under which they muBt con stantly live. They are cunning, but not always cautious j reckless, yet often cowardly ; secretive, painstaking, not always in the right direction; self indulgent, if opportunities offer ; intractable, easily moved to wrath, yet not insensible to kindness, and often amenable to gentle influences.

The discussion that followed showed dissension among tho coal miners' re presentatives, but he was supported of course in his protest againBt the presence of the police, tbe ne9d tor protection ot lire and property not being recognised by unionist advocates.

Grimaldi and his Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

G-rimaldi and his Wife. Grimaldi, the clown, had a slirowish wife and a bad temper of his own. The pair succeeded in making their lives so utterly wretched that at last, in despair, they determined to end them. Griinaldi went out and purchased ' an onnce of arsenic to poison the rats.' After swallowing each a moietv. the Dair sena- - rated, that they might not witness each other's [ pangs. He went to tho sitting-room couch, she to her bed in the adjoining room. The door between the two rooms was left open. A long silence ensued. Each listened anxiously, intensely. But nothing was heard save an occasional sob from Mrs. G., or a quivering sigh from Mr. G. At last Grimaldi, in a low voice, asked : ' Are you dead, love ?' With a sigh she answered, ' No.' ' Damnation !' I10 cried, in perplexity. ' Grimaldi I' sho returned, reproachfully. Half an hour elapsed. Mrs. Grimaldi found the silence unbearable Frightful visions of her husband stretched out cold and motionless were before her. ' M...

Gems of Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

G-ems of Thought. Men are more unwilling to have their weaknesses and imperfections known than their crimes ; and if you hint to a man that you think him silly, ignorant, or even ill-bred or awkward he will hate you more and longer than if you tell him plainly that you think him a rogue. — Chesterfield. There are two kinds of curiosity. One arises from interest, which makes us deBire to learn what may be useful to us ; the other from pride, which makes us desire to know what others are ignorant of. — Rochefoucauld. There is something among men more capable of shaking despotic power than lightning, whirlwind, or earthquake ; that is, the threatened indignation of the whole civilized world. — Daniel Webater. Always man needs woman for his friend. He needs her clearer vision, her subtler insight, her softer thought, her winged soul, her pure and tender heart. Always woman needs man to be her friend. She needs the vigour of his purpose, the ardour of his will, his calmer judgment, his b...
