DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New South Wales Stock. PART IV. The South Coast Cattle. The Illawarra Durhams. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New South Wales Stock. From tlie Agricultural Gazette of N By M. A. O'Callaohan. # . PART IV. The South Coast Cattle. The Illawarra Durhams. The South . Coast cattle, according to the best authorities, originated from crossing the Holstein, Ayrshire, and Durham breeds. Then the farmerB, finding those of the Durham type the most suitable for their requirements, favoured this breed for sires, and thus in time the principal features of evidence of the other breeds disappeared, and what is known as a grade Durham is the result. Had the farmers persevered in their breeding without the recent intro ductions of Ayrshire blood, as I believe some breeders have done, a new breed of cattle capable of transferring in all cases their characteristics to their pro geny might have been introduced to the world. Even now, I think if the best specimens of the South Coast cattle of the old type were collected and mated to an imported Durham bull (which would give new blo...
HALF HOLIDAY V. RAILWAY EMPLOYEES. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
HALP HOLIDAY V. RAILWAY EM PLOYEES. This match was played on Wednesday aud rather gave the weekly holiday people a shock, by reason of the closeness of the contest. Tho result was a win for the Half Holiday Club by 5 points to it : but this does not represent tho true state of the game, as the Railway team really had tho best of affairs. They were purely a' scratch team, and comprised several players who had prob ably not donned a guernsey for seasons paBt. There was no scoring done in the first half, but soon after the opening of the second spell, Holt got over for the ' Railways,' no goal resulting. Just before time Clem ob tained a try iorthe ' Halfs,' and Ziehlke added the extraTtwo points. This left the finuljecore — 5 to 3. Por the winners all played well, and. we will not singla out any for specical mention; but-ior- the losers Holt, Orbell, ant Clayton were very conspic uous. ' Joo ' Usher quite maintained h:s. high reputation also. Mr. O'Mara acted as umpire. —

Chinese Ladies and English Society. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
Chinese Ladies and English Society. Chinese ladies have hitherto not entered London society, and we have rarely had the opportunity of seeing them in our streets and parks. The wife of the present Chinese Minister is, however, making a new departure. She is learning English as fast as she can. and is to be formally presented at the next Drawing Room this year. She intends, with the assistance of Lady Macartney, the wife of the English Secretary, to mix freely in society, and it is to be expected that her plucky action will have the effect of breaking down much prejudice on the part of her compatriots against English customs.
England's Commodities. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
England's Commodities. England has become the distributing mart for the produce of the world. Ships of all nations are found at her wharves, and commodities from all parts of the world brought in those ships are found in her warehouses. Her mercantile navy numbers 21,000 vessels, and 8,000 of these are steamships. The tonnage of these vessels amounts to over 8,750.000 tons, and of this nearly 8,000,000 is engaged in the foreign trade alone. Her mercantile sailors number over 250,000 men, and over 150,000 of these are en gaged in the foreign trade. London is, of course, the chief gainer from this unrestriction of trade. 27 per cent, of the whole trade of the country is in its , hands. Its merchants do business in every seaport on the globe, and the trade of Great'Britain with ports in Europe, the Levant, Egypt, India, the East Indies, China, Japan, and Australasia is almost entirely controlled by them. Its shipping embraces the finest trading fleets known to commerce. Its dooks and w...

Was Pilate Scotch? [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
Was Pilate Scotch ? It is claimed by some that Scotland was the birthplace of the famous Pontius Pilate. According to an old Perthshire tradi tion, the Roman ruler of Judea,was born at G-lenlyon, not far from the place where the ancient yew tree of Fortingall has flourished, as say the experts in arboriculture, for 3,000 years. According to the legend, an embassy was sent to Scotland by Cajsar Augustus shortly before the birth of Christ. One of the embassadors was the father of Pontius Pilate. The Romans were courteously received by Metallanus, a Caledonian chief, and were conducted to his residence near Fortingall. By a rather unusual ciroumstaiice, it appears that the mother of Pontius Pilate had acoompanied her husband on this embassy, and in Perthshire gave birth to the future Governor of Judea.
Something About Tides. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
Something About Tides. According to the law of universal gravitation the moon attracts matter which stands near to her more strongly than that which is more remote. It follows that the attraction on the' ocean, at the side of the earth which is nearest- to the moon, must be greater than that exeroised oh the solid ekrtb itself. Hence there is a tendency for the sea to depart from its natural spherical shape and to bulge outward towards the moon. So far the matter is simple, but it is perplexing to many that the moon should apparently repel the water lying on the further side of the earth. This action, however, is not due to anv actual repulsion from the - moon, but results from the fact that on the further side the moon must attract the solid earth more strongly than it does the water. On the nearer side the moon pulls the water away from the earth, and on the further side she pulls 'the earth away from the water, thus producing an the Tyater to .»?*- extent equal to the uttrncUon o...
Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899
.Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. ' I ? ? Years after the Battle of ..Waterloo, ?someone asked tlie l)uko if he had any idea what number of guns he had taken in his life. 'No,' he replied, 'not with any ac curacy ; somewhere about three thousand I should guess. At Oporto, after the uassDEre of tho Douro. I took the entire siege train of the enemy; at Vittoria ana Waterloo, I took every gun which they had in the Geld. What, however, is the most extraordinary, I don't think l ever lost a gun in the field. After the battle of Salamanca, three of my guns, attached to some Portuguese cavalry, were captured in a trifling affair near Madrid, but thoy were recovered the next day. In the , Pyrenees, Lord Hill found himself obliged to throw eight or nine guns over a precipice, but these also were recovered, and never fell into the enemy's hands.' A few months after Wellington had given up his Indian command, he had occasion to* call on one of the Cabinet Ministers, ar.d, in the ante-ro...
