Murrayville Cricket Match. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

Murrayville Cricket Match. Sir, — Permit me to draw attention to the report four Saturday's match against Murray ville, which is totally incorrect. First, itwaa the ,best team Murrayville could show, not the second eleven. Chatsworth did not revel in the bowl ing by any means, as only three playars reached double figures, and no less than four failed to score. TUe bowling was good on Murrayville sidft. and ourscora of 97 — not 104— was due to Morrison's faultless innings. Broadway took no wickets at all — in fact did noc bowl and could not, therefore, have been the man to cause the Chatsworth wickets lo fall, as your paper intimated. Murrayville scored 55 as u cotal for two innings — not 43 as stated. My report as sent you on Monday last is strictly correct. I shall always forward such to you. It is duej think to Morriaon to state that his innings was a perfect one, no chances being given, and his play was very pleasant to watch. His score of 60 included two sixes. Yours etc, SECREr...

Geelong, Victoria, who writes on the 19th Soptember, 189G : — Those who have never had a day's illness cannot know the feeling of gratitude that permeates the system of one who, after days, weeks and years of sickneBS, has been restored to utrength to the sick. I was one, of these. For a considerable time I was troubled with oxtromo lassitude. I thought it was nothing but laziness, and tried to ?work it off, but it was of no avail. I became extremely nervous, and was frequently afraid of falling, my dizziness was so great. I detested the sight of food, and could hardly digest any thing, and was ultimately compelled to lie up, all the while taking medicine, and carrying out the doctor's orders.

Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Breeding for the Local and English Markets. PART VI.Asiatic Breeds.—Cochins. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

Poultry Notes. Proiitablc fl'oultry ISfeediuf; i'ov the liocal and English Markets. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S.W. BY GEORGE- BRADSHAW. PART VI. ? -0 ? Asiatic Breeds.— Cochins. This variety, on their introduction into England, now about fifty years ago, had the honour of giving the first great im pulse to poultry-breeding, and created more excitement than has any variety since. They were regarded as something wonderful in the poultry world. Their praises were sung far and wide, and fabulous prices paid for eggs and birds : and were for a timo called the kings of the poultry yards. Like many later day varieties, however, which were unduly boomed, when weighed in the commercial balance they were found wanting, and have long 3ince 'taken a back seat.' Cochins were first exhibited in 1850, and although many exaggerated stories were told of their ' wonderful qualities,' still they were then good layers, one authen ticated record being of five hens which laid 120 egga each per a...

These consist of three steam turbines of the typo invented by the Hon. Charles Parsons ; and their total weight is little more than throe find a half tons as compared with the fifteen to twenty tons winch engines or the ordinary kind fitted to torpedo boats weigh. A correspondent of ' Chamber's Journal ' writes : — A turbine may be compared to a windmill tilted within a closed cylinder, the steiun blowing the blades round, and tho shaft, thus turned at the rate of more than 2,000 revolu tions per minute, acting direct upon the propollor. At the recent review the Admiral expressed the wish that the ?'Turbinia' should, for tho benefit of the Royal guests present, show off her best speed. This was done, and the torpedo-boat was urged forward at the unprecedented rate of thirty-four knots, which is equivalent to no less ...

GENERAL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

GENERAL Enft/iATIOH. A good camel will travel one hundred milos a day for ten days. The preparation ot human hair for the market gives employment to 7,000 Parisians. There is an immense garden in China that embraces an area^ of 50,000 square miles. It is all meadow laud and is rilled With lakes, ponds, and canals. In some parts of Now Zealand orange growing is a very profitable industry. Sometimes the crop from an acre of trees amouniB in value to more than £200. A dark, gloomy, bluo sky denotes wind, but a bright blue sky indicates fine weather. Generally, tho Bofter clouds look, the 1ob3 wind, but perhaps more rain, may be expected, and the harder, more ' greasy,' rolled, tufted or ragged, the stronger the coming wind will prove. Half a lemon makes n good substitute for n bar of toilet auap, and an orange, cut in halt and rubbed on a aooty kettle, makes very good shoe-blacking, winch takes a fine polish.

Brahmas. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

ISi'ahnias. It is no part of my duty to enter into the still disputed quesfion of the origin and purity of. thi3 variety ; suffice to say we have them, and the present show-pen standard of either the lights or darka is certainly for handsome appearance a triumph of the fanciers art. Small round heads, neat triple combs, profuse le-''and foot feather are important points in the breeds. In lights tho hackle of pure white should be striped with dense black in both sexes, black tails, and black with white in the foot feathers, the rest of the body pure white. In darks the pencilling of every feather is of much importance in the hens. The ground colour of the feather is grey, pencilled with a darker shade of tho same colour. They are a. large-sized fowl, with short wide back, breasts full, wide, and deep, the breast bone coming well down between the thighs, and legs a. moderate length. For many years Brahmas were a great favourite in the show-pen. The leading English fanciers' societies ...
