Wyandottes. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

Wviuidottes. Wyandottes, like the Rock, were made in America, and, like that breed, have taken on well, being now one of the popular varieties, and bidding fair to exceed in success anything in the poultry way yet invented by our cousins. Indeed, the qualities which have, so far, brought it into public estimation will contribute to make it a lasting one, not with fanciers only, but, more important still, with practical poultry-keepers, viz., farmers, orchardists, and cottagers. Unlike the Rocks, they were never rushed, but gradually found favour, and there is now little doubt of the perman ency of their popularity. They are bred in what aro called gold and silver-laced and whites, the laced varieties finding most favour. In general appearance, they have a short arched neck, full hackle, short legs and back, and promin ent breasts. As viewed beside other full-feathered breeds they may look sniau, out wneii naucueu, oruven ueccer, weighed, their bulk will be more appar ent, which poss...

GceiieriU Purpose fi^wls. Plymouth IfcocUs. Varieties or breeds of poultry have, liko some animals and flowers, on intro duction been the subject of a boom or craze, and of recent years none more ao than Plymouth Rocks. Tho show-pen records of this variety for numbers half a dozen yeara ago exceeded that of any other breed : the reputed laying pro perties, taDie qualities, ana size, com bined with a handsome appearance, stamped them as tho best all-round fowls, and the colonies always eager to emulate tho mother country, rushed them to such an extent that for some years the valuo of the importations from England was much in excess of any other breed. Both fanciers and ordinary poultry-breeders got smitten with what was then called the 'Rock Fever,' abandoning older breeds of tested utility in their favour. ...

CIVILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

CIVILISATION. The importance of the history of a' country depends, not upon the splen dour of its exploits, but upon the degree to which its actions are due to causes springing out of itself. If therefore, we could find some civilised people who had worked out their civilisation entirely by themselves, who had escaped all foreign influence, and who had been neither benefited nor retarted by the personal peculiarities of their rulers — the history of such a people would be of a poramount im portance, because it would present a condition of normal and inherent development ; it would show the laws ot progress acting in a state of isola tion ; it would be, in fact, an experi ment ready made, and would possess all the value of that artificial contri vance to which natural science is so much indebted. To find such a people as this is obviously impossible, but the duty of the philosophic historian is to select for his especial study the country in which the conditions have been most closel...

The Romance of Two Lives. PART IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

The Romance of Two Lives. BY GROSV.ENOR BUNSTER. PART IV. 1 My God !' he cried ; ' my poor Ellen!' 1 It is then as I thought, 'said Nellie gently, ' you are the man she left for such a villain ?' 'Ah lit was not hey fault, Nellie,' exclaimed Carlton. as he raised his head arid looked at her with streaming eyes. ' It was not her fault. Consider how young she was — and I so old — so unsuited to please. It was not her fault. It is not enough to love. How could she help the comparison. You know how handsome, how winning he was; and I forgave him — for»ave them both— and prayed tl.ey might.be happy; and yet I feared— I feared it would not be. Such men do not make the best of husbands. They are spirited and become selfish. Yet I could not think he was a coward.' 'Traitors are' always cowards,' answered the girl, who was also very pale; ' and now listen. I too, at one time had a fancy — a tenderness if you will— for this man. When my first thought was of Australia, I thought nprli n r\o T ...

HOW WORRY WEARS THE BRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

HOW WORRY WEARS THE BRAIN. Worry will kill. Modern science lias brou-ih to light nothing more interesting and useful than this fact, and it has determined and can give in full detail (bccau.se of recent discoveries) just how worry does destroy the nervous system. It is believed by those who have followed most care fully the growth of the science of brain disease that scores of the deaths of each year, deaths ignov anrjiy set down to other causes, arc due to worry, and that alone. The theory is a simple one, so simple that anyone can easi ly .sift and perfectly understand it, and briefly amounts to this-— that worry injuries beyond repair certain of 'the' cells of the brain ; that the brain, being the commanding centre of the body, the other organs become gradually in jured, some diseases of these organ.1 or a combination of them arising, death finally ensues. Thus, then, does worry kill. Insidiously it creeps in upon the brain in tin form of a single, constant, never lost, most depr...

A Devoted Husband. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 March 1898

A Devoted Husband. An instanco of loving devotion on the part of a husband towards his wife has recently come to light, and is of a nature which reads all the more pleasantly after a perusal of the domestic infeli cities revealed in tho proceedings of the divorce courts. Some little timo ago tho wife of a tram way employeowas admitted to tho Sydney Hos pital for tho purposo of having a tumor cut from her breast. He husband volunteered to have a pioce of flesh removed from his arm to bo grafted on to tho breast of his helpmeet in life's joy and sorrows. The oiler was availed of, and thu operation performed very successfully by Dr. FiaBchi. This occurred about a fortnight ago, and both patients aro now doing well, Ttia doctor spoke in high terms of tho devotion dis played by tho husband towards his wife in con nection with the operation. It is a quaint illustration of tho fact that ' the3e twain were made one flesh.'

A Wheelwright's Troubles. FORCED TO STOP WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 March 1898

A Wheelwright's Troubles. FORCED TO STOP WORK. In the suburbs of Orange there lives a gentle man, Mr. S. V. Edwards, who for 20 years suffered fearful agonies from acute indigestion, and liver and kidney complaint. There was hardly a moment that he was entirely free from pain ; ne also ten oppressed, languid, and melancholy, and was able to do but little work. He suffered indescribable tortures from pains in the back, shoulders and legs. His kidneys got out of order, and gravel was added to his com plaints. At one time his hands became numb and lifeless, and he had to rub them to restore the circulation. Ho consulted two of the lead ing physicians of Orange, who gave him a course of treatment, which, however, failed to afford him any relief. Patent medicines were tried, but without any result, until one day, while trying to do a little work, Mr. Edwards was taken violently ill, and was ob.iged to take his bed, there to scay for somo time, sick in mind as well as in body, waiting onl...
