A V1CTOKY FOK THU BAt^D. The .Spanish and Indiun Californiuns were passionately fond of music. All tho men could make shoes and play the guitar, aud every woman could sing Spanish songs to her own accompaniment. It is a curious fact that the people, after the conquest of the country by the United States, wore reconciles! to the netv mle bv music. The Civliforuians wera invited to return to their homes anil resume their usual occupations. Proclamations which promised protection of their persons .ind properly were; plae.inled in the towns ; but they would not come out of their hiding places.

GENERAL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 March 1898

GENERAL INFORMATION. There is a man in Berlin who earns a livelihood by breeding rats for vivisection purposes. If a woll could be dug to a depth of forty miles, the air at tho bottom would be as dense as quicksilver. It is expected that in a short timo a machine will be placed before scientists by which air can bo photographed. If we moved our legs proportionately as fast as an ant, it is calculated we could travel nearly 800 miles an hour. Tho offensive woapon of the ostrich is his leg. Ho can kick as hard as a mule, and it is a remarkablo fact that that his kick is forward, never backward. It is said that flies confined in a glass case with cigarettes will die in less than fivo minutes, so deadly is the atmosphere in the case. Tlio summor coat of tho polar fox is dark, almost black. In winter it is so white that tho animal can hardly bo seen as it runs ovor the snow. On livery shilling turned out, theBritish Mint makes a profit, of nearly threepence.

Colonial Game. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 March 1898

Colonial dnimic. While the Cornish miners of some thirty years ago wore building up a fighting Game cock to take tho place of the old English, and from which evolved the present Indian Gamo, a remarkable coincidence is the fact, that about the samo timo exactly the same process waB going on in the Hawkesbury district of this colony, the broods used by tlio old cockers for the required purpose being almost identical with those used by the Cornishmon. Both parties were working for the common ond, namely, good lighting birds, little thinking that a fancier's or show fowl would be the ultimate rosult of their labours. One great difference between tho Hawkesbury and Cornish evolutions is that regarding colour ; the birds produced by the miners is a new colour to the fancy, while the Hawkesbury men followed strictly the Hue. of tho British Game, producing their favourites in Black-reds, Duckwing, Piles, Brown-reds, Whites, and Blacks.
