Farmer's Residences. At a meeting addressed by Mr. J. L. Thompson recently, the speaker said residences of farmers should havo as pleasant surroundings as possible, He instanced two men in equal circumstances who had taken 320 acres. The first put up a. ring fence, and went in for growing wheat and nothing else, while the other.put up a neat resi dence with vines growing over the verandah ; planted five acres of fruit trees and ten of vines and a little avenue of trees leading up to the house. The places were sold in ten years time, and while the former only realized £2 10a per acre, the other one brought £3 03. While planting trees you might as well grow useful ones, and ho recommended walnuta and olives. He had planted 1700 trees in Yictotia. It is Baid that the man who planted olives provided for his children and his children's children. They would yield produce for 200 years, and in some cases 500 years.

How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your general printing ; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business' printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps him to pay his printer for setting up tho thousand and one free notices ho gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. Tho time may come when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good nowspaper— one that will still help your town and district— givo all your printing to tho C.R. Advocate, the only paper published in the C...

A Phase of Criminality. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

A Phase of Criminality. The streak of selGshness is palpably strongly in evidence in the criminal class. It is a deplorable fact that (he terms of imprisonment served by convicted persons, howevar heavily they may crush by an enforced sojourn within grim stone walls, are a far greater blow to the helpless wives and children who, by tho most sacred ties of human kinship, aro entitled to look to them for support. 1c is only when a gradually doveloping criminal instinct smothers the tendencies of family affuction that tho gaot receives tho criminal, and tho family laments the husband and father. Tho lowest aspect of a criminal is the sheer soltish disregard of those united by blood. From thts category perhaps may be charitably omtted those first deaperato thefts to which fathers are impelled when thuse in their homes are starving, Thu view horu presented appeals to his Honor Judge Black house. An application for treatment under the first Offenders Act was pressed on the ground of a des...
