Farm Notes. In the April number of the Jgricultural QatfiiU is ])ublislied an article by Mr. It. '\V.

Bills of Sale. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
Bills of Sala. A most important point to be con sidered in all bills of .sale, is the special and partioular appropriation of the chat tels included for the purpose of identifi cation. Again it can bo seen that exact ness is neccessary in this description, as if it wore not so, complications may arise to tho prejudice to parties. A man may grant only part of his chattels, and so leave the remaining part of them avail able for execution or other process of third parties. If the part covered by the bill of sale bo not pnrticularised, then the vagueness, if allowed, might work wrong to third parties. The case of Aldbridge v. Johnson is of interest in connection with the question of appro ririftiou. In th.it case A ngreed to ex change certain bullocks with B for 100 quarters of barley, which were to be taken from a greater quantity which was sampled and approved. A sent the bul locks and 200 half-quarter sacks to B, who filled 155 of them with barley. This bailey was not delivered but w...

SHORT STORY [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 2 May 1902
SHORT STORY For the Sake of his Son. &nbsp; THE affair happened two years ago, and as it was hushed up as much &nbsp; as possible few people know what &nbsp; really happened. As I was in Mr Longstock's office at the time as his private secretary I am one of the few, and before old Taylor died in the asylum he told me every detail of his share in the story. Ralph Longstock had made a large fortune in Australia when he came back to England, a widower with one son, Dick, a lad of fifteen. He was scarcely fifty, and a hard-headed man, with a talent for money making, so he put his son to a public school and set to work to double the fortune he had brought home with him. As a boy he had gone to a com- mercial school, and had for a schoolfellow a lad named John Taylor, and they had entered the same office as clerks. A &nbsp; chance came of going abroad, and Long- stock took advantage of it, but Taylor preferred to remain where he was, so, when Longstock came...
Traveller. LIFEGUARDS IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 9 May 1902
Traveller. LIFEGUARDS IN EGYPT. JSMKOW there is hardly a country in q|V)|p the world, where, at some period of hiBtory, the British soldiers have not shed their blood ; amid the snow of Canada, in the forests of America, in Europe, in Asia, and even in distant Australasia, they have literally ' salted the earth with their bones.' And wherever of late years the struggle has been fiercest against the barbarian hordes of Africa, on the plains of the Soudan, and amid the sand hills of lower Egypt, the Lifeguards have signally demon strated the fact that ' they can play, and by Jingo, they can fight !' aB well. The foreign service of the two regiments of Lifeguards during the present century, as . apart from the deeds of individual officers and men, since the downfall of Napoleon has been limited to one s;ngle campaign. In old days the king himaelf took the field with his armies, and then ' lae gentlemen of the guard' attended the sovereign wheresoever he went, and it was George II, who ...
Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 9 May 1902
Varieties. A London fog costs about £7,000 for artificial light burnt. If a coat of paint were applied to the Bkin of a human being, death would casuo in live hours. The Plymouth breakwater contains the same quantity of Btone, 3 800.000 tons, as the great pyramid of Che»pa. The value 4f the Vatican, the Pope's residence at Bome, and its treasures, in money would exceed £30,000,000. It was Brummel who introduced the once polite custom of giving your arm to a lady when you walk in the streets. Some towns in America only pay their mayors about £5 a year. Houbbs were first numbered in England in 1764. It costs £16,000 a day to run the rail ways of the world. Over 10,000 houses are added to London every year. There are between 3,000.000 and 4,000, 000 Bank of England notes in constant — circulation. During the cholera plague of 18G5 the greatest mortality at Madrid and Bome was on Sundays, at London and Berlin on Wednesdays, and at Par:s on Satur days. The largest choir in the world in a...

Sketcher. HOW GUNCOTTON IS MADE. JK5K0R the manufacture of guncotton, iIIt IP the cotton used is cop of weavers' iKS waste, which is received in bales of about 509 pounds eaoh. The bales are opened, and the cotton is picked over and placed in the cotton boiling tubB, about 200 pounds in eaoh tub, to which is added about 250 gallons of water and 35 pounds ;of caustic soda. The eotton iB boiled in this solution ,for eight hours, then drained overnicht : it ia uen boiled for eight hours in clear water, again drained, and then thoroughly washed in a centrifugal wringer or extractor. It is thus freed from oil or other impurities. It is then spread on the wire netting shelves of a suitably arranged dry room, through which hot air, at about 180' F., iB circulated, and is sufficiently dried to be picked. The cotton as received in the_ bales is full of knots and rolls, and the' boiling adds to them. To prepare it for cos ; version into guncotton, it iB necessary to take them out, that the ac...

This is the statement which, made by Pro fessor Haeckel, 'has . set . the scientific world 'talking. It is made in the most uncompromising manhiet.' not as a chance remark but as a peroration of a carefully ttuisnea monograph read before Cam bridge Congress of Zoology. Professor Haeckel bases his statement —with which the scientific leaders of the time are, with rare exceptions, in perfect accord — in part upon recent discoveries of fossil remains in Java, Madagascar, and Australia, but quite as much upon the the researches ot chemists and zoologists into the nature of the primordial cell. This would appear from the following extract from his paper : ' The mono pLyletic origin of all mammalia — that i...
SHORT STORY How he was Ransomed. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 9 May 1902
[?] How lie was Ransomed. ' oUb stifling evening the little Bchooner, 'Kanaka Belle,' lay rolling at her anchor close in to a thundering beaeh of shingle in a certain bay of the New Guinea coast which fen white men have visited. Scarcely a hundred yards away the long heave of the Southern Ocean ourled over in spouting cataracts, and horled up sheets of foam, while just cloar of the creamy smother stood a row of bamboo huts, whose dark-skinned inhabitants will sooner or later be entertained by a gun boat as a reward for the things they have done. About the huts were tufted palm p. and beyond these a wall of eternal ver durr. rolled upwards height above height, until the forest-clad hill side stretched a strip of dusky neutral far away against the blue. Below, it was hot and steamy, for the air was filled with spray, wb;'» curious spicy odours drifted off the Ian', at which the bronze-faced skipper sniffed contemptuously.

' Tho morning if 26th April, the day upon which we wore to take our places on board the good ship Souevic, dawned dull and cloudy, and before 8 o'clock the rain was coming down in a steady downpour.
