ABOUT PENNIES. The little penny is the most agile colti that bears the face of the Goddess of Liberty If all the pennies that are now in circulation in the United States were piled one upon another, when the plle was finished it would be one hundred. timn,-s as big as the Goddess of Liberty,. that enlightens a small part of the" world in New' York Harbor If those same pennies were laid edge' to edge they would extend from fiLr. Francisco to St. Pete.rsburg. It is al?Mo true that the tall pile of them referred to would be 4000 times the heilght of the' Eiffcl Tower, the tallest in the world. All the pennies in the United States are stamped at the Philadelphia Mlint, but they are not, as most people sup pose, irade there. The Government buys the blank coppers on which the de sign is stanmped from a western lirmn,eaLc thousand cents costing $1 25.

A FOUR-LEAVED GLOVER. By Itchocz, Palfrey Utter-In "St. Nicholw-" '" In a corner by the wall Stood a Four-leaved Clover, Trying hard to grow so high That she might peep over. Di?contented? No, not she! Pleasant world she found It; Only thought she'd like to see What might be beyond tt. Apple-tree at noonday threw Shadows cool above her. Every creature in the field Could not choose but love her. I3ectles gliding through the grass, Bilrds that fluttered over, Broeeze and butterfly and boe Stepped to chat with Clover. Came an early Sunbeam down In the morning quiet: "Clover, dear, your hair is wet Shall I help you dry it? Slept without your night-cap? Ah, But you must not do it. Soon your hair will lose its curl, Then how you will rue it?" Came a roaming Bumble-bee. Pockets full of money: "Ah, good morning, Clover sweet, What's the price of honey?" "Help yourself, sir," Clover laughed "Bumble, you're too funny! Never clover yet so poor She must sell her honey." Came a whirring Humming-...
SEASONABLE POULTRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
SEASONABLE POULTRY HINTS. Early feeding is necessary to ensurd good growth in your young stock. It iA a good plan to put some broken wheal. or other small grain in your chickenl coops at night, so that they will be ablt to help themselves early In the morning. Linseed, either in the form of meal, on used whole, is good to brighten the piUa mage of your birds, and it is also t> good remedy for indigestion. About uW teaspoonful of the meal mixed witti other soft food, is sufficient for oiQ fowl. A good way to prepare bones for poul try Is to burn them till they crumble; when struck with a hammer, and, wherl broken up, they provide a supply oil charcoal as well as bone grit. Poultry; will eat them greedily, if prepared iti this way. Never breed in if you wish to succeedl in poultry, either for table or laying purposes. In show birds of some varieo ties inbreeding is useful, but in regt8laq breeding it should never be practised; as you are certain to weaken the con.' stitution and di...
ONCE UPON A TIME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
ONCE UPON A TIME. Two frogs. found themselves in a pail of milk, and they could not jump out. .One turned faint-hearted, and said to the other, "Good-bye, I sink, I die." Said his: nervy, nousy chum, 'Brace up, you duffer, keep jmnpin', and see whait turns up.-. So they, keit -on juimping iip and dowrn allmnight, and by` mornming h so churned the milk that ifturned to butter, and, lo ! they escaped: safe : to land ! Applied to business, the froggy fable means ithis The 'man who looks" for badf tiles, and becomes dormant and faint-hearted directly the - business outlook becomes cloudy, will not sur vive to- see good times, for he lets a golden opportunity slip by. We have received for review the first number of the " West Gippsland Gazette," a new pal:er published at Wariagtil. The letterpress, being from new type, is perfect, and the coiitenits of the number display the energy and ability of the proprietors.
