Is Alcohol Beneficial! [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

Is Alcohol Beneficial ! The St. James Gazette arrives at the fol- lowing conclusion regarding the above ques- tion :-" Winter or summer, all violent drinks are noxious, unless there has been, a shock to the system. The consumption of raw spirits is barbarous : they neither cool you in sum- mer nor warm you in winter. Only in a. limited sense is alcohol food. But at the right times and seasons, and in small quanti- ties, it is a wholesome and a cheering stimu- lus ; and in winter more than in any other season of the year the good of it is found."

The Chinese in America. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

Tlie Chinese in America. Mr. Henry Ward Beecher haB oome to the rescue of the Chinamen. He is surprised, that the moral sentiment of America has not ere now manifested itself in monster meet- ings to protest against the horrible barbari- ties to which the Chinese are subjected in the West. Mr. Beecher's surprise does not go deeper than his lips. No one knows bet- ter than ho that hatred of Chinamen is part of the American national faith, and that any attempt to arouse sympathy by the cry of Chinese wrongs must be absolutely hope- less. Americans fear that the Western States fronting the Pacific will become a second Chinaland. Legislation to stop the immigration of Chinamen has proved abor- tive. The Eestrietion Act is a dead letter. All along the shores of Puget Bay there are a hundred safe landings, and the distance from thence to Victoria is only from forty to fifty miles. Quite a large business has been done for months by the masters of sloops, small schooners, and plungers itt s...

NEWCASTLE NOTES. On the evening of the 19th a concert and dance took place in aid of the temper- ance cause. Mr. Donegan kindly lent Iiis large room for the occasion-one and all did their best to make the evening a pleasant one. Our shools have been undergoing their Christmas examinations. On Friday the Newcastle Government mixed school were put through by members of the local Board-viz., Messrs. Dempster, Kelly, and Mayhew. A few visitors were pre- sent. It is very mach to be regretted that more interest is not taken in tho schools, and oh ! such a school room ! It is a room built at the rear of the Court Honse, the windows on one side looking into the hospitl yard, and on the other into the yard of the Sergeant of police. The atmosphere is something dreadful. There aro b'4 names ou t he roll, and an average attendauce of 42. Fancy these besides the master and monitors closeted in a room measuring 24 feet by 16 feet.

A Noble Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

A Noble Revenge. Mr. Archibald Forbes, in bia latest work, relates : The day after the passage of the river had been forced the Emperor crossed the Danube, to visit and congratulate the troops who had performed the exploit. In front of the long massive line, drawn up on the crest of the slope east of Sistova, stood throe men await ing the coming of the Great White Czar General Dragomiroff, who was the command- er of the division that had crossed first, Yalchine, the chief of the brigade of that division which had been first over and borne the brunt of the fighting and the loss ; and Skobeleff, who bad shown the way to all and sundry. The Emperor embraced Dragomiroff in the Russian fashion, and gave him the Cross of St. George ; ho shook hands with the cherry little Yalchine, and gare him, too, a St. George to add to others which this blithe fighting'man had been picking up since he was a boy all ever the Caucasus and Central Asia. Then he came to Skobaleff, and men. watched the litt...

HATCHING AND MANAGEMENT OF CHICKENS. -4. The following is taken from a prize essay, \»y Air. J, E. Scott, of Hamlin's, Pennsyl- vania, which appeared in the National Stockman, Pittsburg :-We shall assume that your surroundings and circumstances have been thoroughly studied, and a breed of fowl selected to suit the design with which, you enter into business. For, of course, if eggs are' most desired, we should select a breed noted as egg producers ; like- wise also if size or horniness be tbe object . «imed at. The question of breeds being de- cided, eggs for hatching should be prouured from the best strain possible ; or if selectiug eggs from your own stock, always choose those laid by vigorous young hens, however common the fowl may be. Choose eggs irom those only highly developed, which also have the characteristic you desire most strongly marked. Such a. coarse of selection will improve any breed or strain ; and improve- ¡ meut is always in order. Only the medium sized eggs laid ...

TAXAT/OU" FOE BO ADS. To THE IfiDlTOU. SIB,-As the question ot' direct taxation for up keep of roads is engaging the at- tention of the gen¿ral public, I would like, as a settler, and a member of one of the country. Hoads Boards, to pass a few remarks upon what, to country peoide, is a matter of vital importance. My atten- tion lias been drawn to a letter appearing in your contemporary the Inquirer, sign- ed "Diogenes'" in which tho writer as- serts, that it is monstrous that the set- tlers should for a moment resist direct taxation for the maintenance of their roads, and he further asserts that the country people must feel persuaded that the general revenue of thc colony should not be applied to their roads, i take it that " Diogenes " does not know much of «oautry people, otherwise he would not write in such a (to say the least of it) foolißh strain. " Diogenes " will find that the settlers will resift direct taxa- tion, and that those who have not tho ad- vantage Bf railway commu...

QUALIFIED MASTERS FOR COASTING VESSELS: o To THE EDITOR .

HEALING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

HäA LING PLANTS. The Lancet in a late issue calls attention to a fact which is of considerable interest and importance from a medical point of view, viz., that the willow is an old remedy for inter- mittent fevers now almost forgotten or living only in the name of preparations now so much in favour of the treatment of an- other disease. The leaves of several species of willow still are largely prescribed by hakims of India and Afghanistan, especially in the form of a distillate. The remedy has recently been tried anew by an Indian assist- ant surgeon, Chetan Shah. Among the lower classes of Kabul quinine was found to irrit- ate tho bowels, while the juice of the fresh willow leaves largely diluted with water rare- ly failed to cure intermittent fever, and never caused irritation.

THE CORK DEFENCE UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

TEE CORK DEFENCE UNION. THE chairman of the Cork Defence Union has just given an account of his stewardship to his English supporters. His association have already hfíorded practical help to numbers of farmers and others suffering from Land League tyranny. In one district twelve boycotted families have been supplied with black- . smiths, provided with a market for their stock, and otherwise.liberated (rom bond- age to the League. In another several farmers and the priest himself were re- fused the use of the local threshing machine on political grounds. Bown came a travelling machine from Cork, and at once the local machinist reconsidered hts determination, and offered hi« machine to the men he had endeavoured to oppress. But tho worst case with which tito Cork loyalists have to cope is that of the Cork ' Steam Packet Company, boycotted by the Cattle Trade Association for discharging its legal obligations as a common carrier, and exporting "landlord "cattle.

The Garden. PACKING CUT FLOWERS, FRUIT, AND PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

PACKING CUT FLOWERS, FRUIT, AND PLANTS. -«-. A much greater advantage has been taken this spring (says a writer in Agriculture) and summer of the parcels post in sending plauts and cut flowers, and it may be worth while giving a few hints as to the treotment of these before dispatch and on receipt. As parcels up to 71b, weight can be sent any distance by parcels post for ls. this offers a good media m of circulation of boxes of cut flowers, Iruits. and small plants, and much tsurplus fruit, &c, might thus be disposed of. Strong, light tin aud wooden boxes for this purpose are now made specially by manufacturers, aud sold by the dozen or gross at reasonable prices. Flowers travel well iu wooden boxes, provided the boxes, as often happens, do not get smashed in transit. Tin boxes have the advantage of being more unbreakable, and when these fit well and are carefully packed, and after, wards wrapped iu stout brown paper, the flowers arrive in a nice fresh condition. The wood bo...

COW HOLDING BACK HER MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

COW HOLDING BACK HER MILK. -» A cow carries her milk from one meal of her calf to uuother, held firmly in little reservoirs distributed all through the udder. The valves which open and close the pass* ages from these reservoirs to the teats are under the control of the will, but like the muscles which close the neck of the bladder, they are naturally and constantly kept closed ; and are only relaxed and opened by a 8pscial effort of the will. At milking time these valves, by a relaxation of the chords which control them, are opened, and the milk let down in a flood upon the teats. This relaxation does not last long. After a little the special effort to hold open the valves ceases, and they instinctively close again, shutting off the (low from the reser voira to the teats, o.nd reto.in.iug in the reservoirs any milk which may have not passed out. The habit of not " g-iving j down " consists in shortening tbe time of I this relaxation, thus stopping the flow from j tiie reservoirs to ...

FERTILISATION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

FERTILISATION OF FLOWERS, ; -*- . I I It is easy to conceive of several ways in whick pollen might be conveyed from one j flower to another ; but, practically, we need here only consider two-the impulsion of the wind and th* porterage of insects. Flowers that are fertilised by means of wind wafted pollen have usually relatively incon- spicuous flowers, the floral construction is ot the simplest, generally devoid of brilliant colour or potent odour. The pollen itself is relatively small, smooth, sometimes pro- vided wjtb wing-like expansions as in pines, and generally produced iu large quantities. On the other band, insect born pollen ie usually produced in flowers of more or less complicated construction, of brilliant colour, and powerful odour. The pollen of such flowers is frequently provided with ridges, ? spiues, or other projections well adapted to adhear to the legs or beaks of insects. Here, then we get the clue to the reason of the bright colours the varied aud often com I p...

The Uninvited Guest. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

Tlie Uninvited Guest. At some of tho triumphal festivals which took place ia Borne io the " brave days of old," it was customary to carry along with the procession a botmd slave, as an illustration of the vicissitudes to which human life is subject, even at the height of its happiness. In Egypt, too, they would send round a mummy at ter the dessert, just to show the revellers that even Golden boys and girls all must, Like chimney sweepers come to dust. And we deem it proper, even at this season of universal rejoicing, to do like- wise, and call the attention of our readers to a very afflicting subject indeed, the axistenco to wit of our noisy little friend the mosquito. And yet our hearts fail us, and spite of old customs, we seek for something good to be paid of the blood-thirsty little ogre. And it really seems after all that in speaking and writing against the poor fellow, we have been cruelly maligning one of the greatest of benefactors to the human race. ¡So far from driving hi...
