CHAPTER XI.—SYLVAN DELL. "Soft eyes look'd love to eyes which spake again." BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 January 1888

CHAPTER XI.-SYLVAN DELL. " Soft eyes look'd lore to eyes which spake again." -BYKON. Up the hill they walked side by side ;-the horse without guidance followed after. As they approached the hut the children announced the fact by running to the door and Mabel exclaim ing " Oh, mother, do look down the hill; there is a gentleman coming with Auntie, and he has such a dear little horse. I do believe it's Mr Darrant." " Yes," cried Harry gleefully, " I'm sure it is. Such a nice little pony," Mia Trevail went to the door and awaited her sister's return, nor did she check the children's glee, so rare was the presence of a caller in the bush. Before the greetings had ended John passed to the back of the cottage carry ing on his shoulder a heavy log ; for, to use his own expression, he " had left work and was bringing in his next week's firewood." " Welcome to our new home, Mr Durrant. I reckon you had some trouble in finding your way." After matters were briefly explained, John continued ''...

Correspondence. [Correspondents must in ail cases enclose their name in addition to nom de plume.

Sra,-Please allow the author of " Onlv a Pansy Blossom " to say a few words in answer to " Another Victim." It seems as if the Editor is greatly put out by losing a subscriber, and that unlucky subscriber having foolishly sent a poem to him for printing he has taken up bis pen to give vent to his feelings in giving the poetic subscriber a rub. But the author of " Only a pausy blossom" thinks he has made a mistake and only showed himself up. If he (the Editor) took up the original of that poem he will find it different to what he has printed. He will find also on the bottom of the page written -*' If the Editor thinks the above worth printing he is welcome to print it." Now, as the poem did not appear the author came to the conclusi...

It is acknowledge easily taught and quickly learned where there is a good master and an apt scholar. 2. The exercise of singiag is delightful to nature, and good to preserve the health of man. 3.

English and American Smokers. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 January 1888

English and American Smokers. " One of the features of American street life that strikes an Englishman on first arriving here most forcibly," said a young Londoner whose acquain tance I made at the Palmer House an evenin^ or two ago, '. is the abundance of cigars. I was simply astounded to observe ! on my arrival here, teamsters, porters, cabmen, aye, even peddlers with hand-carts smok ing cigars. In England, you know, where cigars cost just as much as they do here, a man who never smokes anything on the street but a cigar is looked upon as an epicure, and, if he is not a gentleman of landed property, is regarded as a very extravagant fellow. What do we smoke? Why pipes, of course." I kihdw fellows-Lon don fellows, t^p-r-who are worth all the way from L100 toLl,000 a year, who are inveterate smokers, and who yet regard cigars with about as much re verence as you do diamonds, no doubt. The most extravagant of them make two cigars^ at three pence, or six cents a piece per day. No-, I ...

Farmers' Column, FORTY YEARS'EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILIZERS. In snmmmg up the results of forty years' experiments in continuous wheat growing at Rothamsted, England, Sir John Lawes and Dr Gilbert deduct the following general conclusions . THE SOIL. 1. A soil which in the ordinary course of agriculture would have re ceived an application of manure before another crop was sown, has produced forty crops of wheat iu succession, averaging fourteen bushels to the acre, solely by means of its existing fertility. (It is a strong clay soil^. 2. A.t the commencement of the ex periment the soil contained a large amount orgaDic nitrogen, derived from the debris of pre-existing vegetation. It also contained a large amount of the mineral food of plants. 3. Every year a certain proportion of the organic nitrogen has been nitrified by organisms existing in the soil. 4. Part of the nitrates formed has been employed in the growth of the wheat crop; part has been washed out of the soil, or otherwise los...

Tli© Wheat Market* Petersburg, Thursday Evening. There is a further drop in the wheat I market. London prices are weaker, and consequently merchants in this colony are not over anxious. The lughest price given at this agency to day is 2s 6fd, being ^d lower than yesterday's quotations. Deliveries are fair. Farmers are storing pretty largely this year, which is probably against their own interests, even if by j keeping it at home they do get Id or 2d per bushel more when they sell.

Selected Poetry. THE DEAR LONG AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 January 1888

Selected Poetry, THE DEAR LONG AGO. In the gray of the gloaming o'er lowland and highland The storm-wind is sounding it's bugles afar. The billows roll black on the desolate island; In Vain shall the mariner seek for a star. 0 keeper, look well to thy beacon forth gleaming . 0 fisher, steer boldly, with eye to the light, Lest slumber unbroken by waking or dream ing Thy portion shall be in this turbulent night. Y«t quiet I sit, thinking not of the sobbing So eerie and dreary of tempest and snow, For tones in my beart with strange sweetness are throbbing The runes and the tunes of the deaf long ago. 1 am borne to the days that were swift in their flying, All pulsing with music and sparkling with mirth, The days when my childhood no space had for sighing, ' No place for the phantoms of darkness and dearth. On the hearth pales the fire's red glow to dull ashen ; , Without, the trees moan in the deepening cbiU; But fancy recalls to my spirit the fashion Of Spring on the meadow, the plain...

Work or Wealth? WHICH DO THE PEOPLE REQUIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 January 1888

Work or Weallfti ? WHICH LO THE PEOPLE REQUIRE. It is most amusing to hear many of our public men advocate useless expenditure and unnecessary public works because "It will give employment to labour." We contend that it is net work that the people require but ?wealth. If we are answered that the toilers cannot expect to receive the later without -working, then we answer that justice demands that no one in the community should be in a position to do eo. People work in order to enjoy; those laws that keep the masses at work in order that others may enjoy must be swept away as quickly as possible. As Mr. Henry George said in a recent speech; -"We hear public men speaking of the building of war ships for which we have no use at all, and the building of forts that are worse than useless, aud it is 'Well, it will give employ ment to labour.' Wherever there is a large public work yon will find newspapers congratulating people in its neighbourhood that it will furnish employment. Men at the...

District News. Gladstone. January 24. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 January 1888

District News. Gladstone. January 24. The weather on Saturday and Sunday last was sultry, with indica tions of rain. .. Node, however, fell until Monday afternoon when we were favored with heavy showers. This was very welcome to many of our townspeople, who required a supply for domestic purposes. On Tuesday the sun again shone out warmly and it will no doubt soon become much hotter than at present. A serious accident happened on Monday night to Mr Henry Cox, fruiterer of this town. He had been to Clare for a load of fruit, and had re turned within two miles of home, when, by some means he felt under the wheel. His groans were heard by some gentlemen in the township who went to his assistance and he was conveyed in a trap to his home. It was very fortunate that help arrived so. soon as the accident happened at mid night. One leg was broken below the knee and other injuries Were also sub stained. Under the care of Dr Comyn, the patient is doing as well as can be expected.
