SPORTING NOTES. TBt Mkntoe.1 The results of the opening events of the Caul field Spring campaign were eagerly awaited by turfites on Saturday, and were promptly posted in the windows of The Advertiser office. The victory of Atlas in the Oaulfield Stakes came as a great surprise, but Hova and Havoc iustified local anticipations by making a close thingof the finish. The placed horses m the Hurdles were all well fancied here. Great would hare been the disappointment of all who hold tickets in the St. Aibana distribution had not the doughty Wallace 'donkey-licked' his opponents in the Oaulfield Guineas. The son of Carbine— Melodious has justified his lineage, and what he will do in his next essay or who he may belong to when the time arrives for him to appear in the V.R.C. Derby and Cup are questions that are now agitating the public mind. The favorite for the Steeplechase, Romsdal, appears to have scored a very narrow victory for Geometry, but suffi cient to maintain the prestige of th...

Poultry. FOWLS FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
[?] FOWLS FOR EXPORT* TBv 'Bbeedee.'] Many would-be experts are frequently airing their opinions as to what breeds of fowls ?should be kept with a view to export. While no doubt the intentions are good still it is to; be remembered that because these opinions appear in print it does not follow that they are of any value ; on the contrary, they are often very misleading. We know what breeds are con Bidered of the highest merit in the English market, viz.. the Dorkinff. Indian Gamer. Malay, or Old English Game, crossed or pure ; the Langshan pure, or crossed with Malay ; Indian orOld English. Therefbrewe must study what the consumer requires, and not endeavor to force upon him what he does not ?want ; such a course would be disastrous, not only to the shipper, but to the good name of the colony as a poultry-producinsr country. We shall take some time to make a first-class name, so we must go in for the highest quality only. A Government lecturer has been appointed for the purpose of i...
