Windsor Police Court. TUESDAY, SEPT. 13TH, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 17 September 1881
Windsor Police Court TUESDAY, SEPT. 13TH, 1881. Messrs. J. M. McQuade and J. B. Johnstone J.'s.P. were on the Bench, but at IO o'clock Mr. McQuade left his seat, stating that he'd wait ten minutes to see if another magistrate would arrive. There were two cases only on for hearing, the principa! of which was The Municipal Council of Windsor v. George Louis Asher Davies, for infraction of Municipalities Act of 1867 ; and Mr. McQuade, no doubt, had his own reasons .for not sitting in this case. At any rate, by half-past ten a third magistrate had not appeared, and as Mr. McQuade did not make his re appearance, Mr. Davies asked ths sitting magistrate to proceed with the case, he had be_jn summoned to attend at 10 o'clock, and it was half-past that hour-besides delay meant expense to him. Mr. Johnstone was quite willing to proceed if the C.P.S., Mr. W. H. H. Becke, J.P. would also sit. This, Mr. Bt-cke declined to do, and gave no reason why he declined. Under the circumstances the case w...
PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 17 September 1881
PINS. . Cum grano salis. ABOUT the very wors* bit of bigotry that has come under my notice for many a long day is a letter appearing in the Weekly Advo- cate, which we read sometimes after we have got through the Bulletin, signed by one J. B. Youdale, and has reference to a service he attended at St. Andrew's Cathedral Sydney. He says " there is no place like home," and thinks the ways of the Wesleyan Methodists are par excellence. He finds fault with the singing, which is not so " soul-stirring" as in their own conventicles ; and the whole service was " ceremonial and soulless," being nothing but a mere ecclesiastical routine. Dr. Ellis is put down as a very indifferent preacher, and, according to the writer, no good can be gained from a sermon under three heads, occupying only fourteen minutes, and in which Shakes- peare, Ahab, and Jezebel, occupied prominent places, though Christ was not mentioned from beginning to end. A Jocal preacher of the writer's own church, would have done...

SEVEN POINTS IN MILK SETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 17 September 1881
SEVEN POINTS IN MILK SETTING PROFESSOR ARNOLD says, in the Tribune, in answer to an enquirer :-Among the many excellent modes for raising cream, I would not like to say which is best, if indeed any one is best under all circumstances. It will suffice to stile a few general principles, and let each one decide for himself. 1. To make the finest flavoured and longest keeping butter the cream must undergo a ripening process by exposure to the oxygen of the air while it is sweet, this is best done while it is rising. The ripening is very tardy when the temperature is low. 2. After the cream becomes sour, the more ripening the more it depreciates. The sooner it is then skimmed and churned the better, but it should not be churned while too new. The best time for skimming and churn- ing iß jnst before acidity becomes apparent. #. Cream makes better butter to rise in cold air than to rise in cold water, but it wiil rise sooner in cold water, and the muk will keep sweeter longer; 4. The deepe...
THE FARMER. GRASS LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 17 September 1881
THE FARMER. _i_ GRA^S LANDS. AFTER MANAGEMENT.-When grass seeds have been sown alone, a roller should be drawn over the field as sion as the young plants are about 3 or 4 inches high, and if any bare spots are found more seeds should be sown at once. Weeds indigenous to the soil are sure to come up, and tiley should be care- fully removed by hand-hoeing, or, if that is inconvenient, they can be checked by early mowing. Weeding is always a matter of great importance even in seeds, but much more so in permanent pasture. Boiling once or twice will be beneficial ; and should the grass become very strong before winter, cattle may be turned in during: fine weather, but on*- ° account sheep, as they are apt to pull He young plants. It will, however, be bette "to^ leave the pasture until spring giving iflj & additional tolling or bush harrowing in *.*** month of October, with a top dreeing: of manure if considered necessary. The yo&ng grass should not be grazed till the foll...

St. Albans. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 17 September 1881
St. Albans. THERE has been a few hints made at one time and the other, by our friend " Scrutator" at Wiseman's, about marriages, past, present, and future ; and now the cat's ont of the bag -as far as concerns this locality-for it is now a well known fact that one of the most beau- tiful syrens of the Branch has thrown herself into the arras of the Adonis of this ' city.' In the vulgar parlance of every day life :-the lovely daughter of our respected neighbour. Mr.'J. Fernance, has bestowed her lily-white hand upon our electric young townsman, Mr. A. H. S. Perry, the second son of Mr. II. Perry, of Windsor. May their path of life be bestrewed with roses--without thorns. BISHOP RYLE ON THE PULPIT.-Whatever the reason may be, the age of great preachers seem to be passing away. The old prophetic dignity of the pulpit, in the days when the clergy had genius as well as piety, is no longer maintained. The tendency of the preacher of modern days, who has chosen his profession primarily tha...
