Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Breeding for the Local and English Markets. PART VII. General Purpose Fowls. Langshans. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 February 1898

Poultry Notes. Profitable Poultry Receding ft'on* lite (Local iituB flOiB^JisIa Marlicts. From the Agricultural Gazette, of N.S.W. BY GEO. BUADSHAW. PART VII. General Purpose IFowIs. ffj'aiiirsitmis. Possibly no other variety of poultry has received such prominence for a continuity of years, through dispute and discussion as to purity and type, as has the Langshan, and to say that such is over would be to anticipate too much, seeing that there have been frequent lulls in the controversy, with the inevitable revival ; now however, that a type has been fixed, approved of, put into force by the judges, and acknowledged by the breeders gener ally, we may at least hope for a finality in Langshan literature and look for the results. The breed in Australia, for years, has been a favourite one, and although never unduly boomed, very high num bers have been recorded in the best New South Wales and Victorian shows ; indeed, some two or three years ago, when at their height of popu larity, I w...

ELECTRICAL KILLINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 February 1898

ELECTRICAL KILLINGS. F. La Roche, an electrical engineer, in discussing electrocution, describes some of his own experiences, which go to throw grave doubt on the cer tainty with which the ordinary means of electrocution kill. In his work he has experienced shocks of from 1,600 and 1,060 to aco.ooo volts ! And he. still lives and works. Yet, as he says, this does not prove by any means that electricity does not kill. But how and under what conditions? To solve this problem some experiments were made with animals. The first experiment was performed upon a full-grown cat in the following way : Two plates of metal, separated but a short distance from each other, were secured to a table. Next a terminal was seoured to each plate so that when the cat stood with her forefeet upb-n one plate and her hindfeet upon the other the circuit was completed through her body. Her feet were thoroughly saturated with salt water, with the effect of greatly decreasing her electrical resistance. When ail...

Orpingtons. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 February 1898

Ot*{»in.u;(oiis. Of the numerous new breeds which have been introduced into the poultry world, none have taken such a hold as the variety with the above, title. Some ten years ago they were first issued to the public by Mr. W. Cook, of Tower House, Orpington, Kent, whose claim for the breed was that it supplied the lung-icu warn in uie [jumuy wuuu, viz., a breed with the combined quali ties of an exceptional layer and all re quisites of a first-class table fowl. When introducing the breed, Mr. Cook candidly informed the public of its component parts, and one of the varie ties used in the manufacture being an unpopular one, was no doubt largely responsible for a host of ill things said of them during the first two or three years of their existence. Those, how ever, who tried the variety and tested it on its merits, spoke most favourably of the many qualities of the breed, not one of which had been overstated by its originator. They are bred in blacks, whites, and buffs, of both singl...

THE MAID AND THE MUSICIAN. ROSE FARRINGHAM'S GREAT FOLLY.

'White necks wore craned in that direc tion, the palpitatini; beat of fans stopped as at the touch of n magic wand. A few men, watch ing all this little comedy, smiled discreetly be hind thr-ir gloved hands. What fools the wamen made of themselves over this mustcnl fellow ! And sometimes the conceal* d smile had a touch of contempt, sometimes a dash of anger. But on ono man's countenance there was no smile, only in the eyes a ^reat pain.

The Romance of Two Lives. ? -—— « ? BY GROSVENOR BUNSTER. ?» ? PART III. 1 Well, when I marry, ' said Nellie, ' I want to marry a man.7 ' My dear, of course,' cried the astonished Johanna ; ' nobody sup posed you wanted to marry a woman.' ' I don't regard these idleaddleputes as men,' went on Nellie. ' A coronet ! Look at Lord Hertlerny— now ! just compare such a creature as that — well, with your brother.' ' Humph !' said Johanna ; ' that's not a (air way of putting it. I con fess that as a specimen of manhood, Percy has the best of the comparison. But then he isn't an carl — and he isn't heir to a dukedom and £40,000 a year. And besides, I don't suppose that when it comes to marrying, you'd ever think of Percy, Nellie.' Nellie didn't answer. She merely knit her brows, and sat thinking for some moments. After all, she thought, why was this marrying neces sary ? Why should one's life always be rounded with this inevitable con clusion — the finale always to a career, unless indeed it...

How Long to Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 February 1898

How Long to Sleep. Arnoi'Os of Sir James Sawyer's recent discourse on longevity at the Alcosk's Green Institute, Birmingham, in which ho insisted on 'a sullioiency of sleep' as ono of the things needful to rrake a man's days long in the land, tho 'British Medical Journal' aska what a Builiciency is'! Sir James dchues it as one-third of thu 2-1 hours. For what Mr. Arnold called tho 'avorago sensual man'— that is to say, the normal physiological noecla and cravings— this amount is (tho journal admits) probably not too much. Somo of tho greatest workers of our day (says 'St. James' Budget') have dune wich much less than eight hours of sleep. JJr. James Legge, professer of Chinese in the University of Oxford, who has just died at the ago of 82, was, it is said, in tho habit of rising at 3 a.m., and allowod himself ouly 5 hours of sleep.

In a report which he has furnished to the Minister for Mines and Agriculture, Mr. Sydney Smith, on the Albion Park ahaw he says: — 'I visited the show on my way to Nowra on the ISdi ultimc, at the rcqueBt of the presidont of the society and the member for the district.

Editorial Notes. The cominittoo of tbo Lowor Claronce hospital have decidod that thoro shall bo only ono modi cal ofiicor in tho institution. Ono of the objoc tions urged against a singlo rnodical officers was that tho services of two doctors would be re requirod in cases which roquired the administra tion of chloroform. This objection was met with tho remark that tho matron could assist in such cases. Cases of this naturo require tho greatest professional skill, and even in the hands of the most competent modical men, tho admin istration of chloroform often results in tho death of tho patient. Thero is evidently a lively timo in store for Maclean hospital pationts. Mu, D.
