Ho was in favor of a State Bank. Ho expected a greater agitation for land settlement than in 1861, as the people were hungering for land.

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

Tilings In General. By O.C. and Namoi. Last week in Parliament a violent and ineffective attack on Mr. Reid waB made by the notorious Mr. Norton, and was replied to effectively by the Premier. It is, how ever, a regrettable circumstance to have occurred and it may be eaid tlie accusation was not properly formulatod, and the result is therefore unsatisfactory. The attacking party spoke for some four hours, and the newspapers reported about one-hundredth part of the oration. Even ' Truth,' which is conducted by Mr. Norton, did npt give a full report. It may be safely said' that, abuse wa9 the main staple of the harangue, and the orator has achieved another wide advertisement, though in his cane quite un necessary. Mr. Roid's reply was fair anil direct, aud disclosing the secrets of his pri vate financial position, it was shown to be poor enough for a patriot, and general re gret is felt for him. . The matter can hardly reBt as it is, the charges being so gross and palpable, affecting ...

Burning Wheat Stubble. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

Burning Wheat Stubble. A resident ef the northern district asked the Department of Agriculture recently whether the burning of the Btubble ou wheat land is. in any way detrimental to the land, aB it is the general practise to set fire to the Btubble soon after harvesting. ' The prac tise of burning stubble,' reports Mr. J. L. Thomson, ' cannot be too strongly condemn ed. For permanent and profitable farming no one can afford to lose his straw by this wasteful method. Wheaten straw saved in the best condition, cut up into chaff and fed to the stock with a little grain or mol asses, will beep them in good heart and con dition during periods of drought, and if we refer to the market reports at any time, it will be noticed that the demand for wheaten straw is invariably good, at prices that will well repay systematic harvesting. Certainly when the stnbble is burnt, fertiliser, in the Bhape of aBhes, is dropped on the soil, but the chances are that it gets nearly allblown away, and the r...

When Men Are Strongest [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

When Meu Are Strongest. Our physical Btrength increaeos up to a certain age, and then decreases. Teats of the-Btretigth of several thousands of peop'o have been made by means of a dynamometer (strength measurer), and the average 'lift, ing power ' of a youth of 17 vears Droved to be 280 pounds, in his 20th year this in creases to 320 pounds, and in the 30th and 31st year it reaches its height, 856 pounds. At the end of the 31st year the Btrength bo. gins to decline, very slowly at first. By the 40th year it has decreased 8 bounds, and this diminution continues at a slightly increasing rate until the 50 year is reached when the figure is 330 pounds.

In Tlie Toils. Mrs. D . Bryant's Torture— Over mas tered ' and Debilitated by Acute Indigestion Tries Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pille. Her Lost Health Now Regained. The following truth is told by Mrs. D. Bryant, of 82 Nicholson-street, Pitzroy, Victoria : — ' More than two years ago I be gan to suffer intensely with acute .indiges tion. Prom the beginning of feeling out of sorts, this ailment attacked me very severe ly,; and I could get nothing that would re lieve me of my agony. The food I ate be came indigestible, and heavy in my stomach and I'd get a Bharp pain that would nearly double me up. The ailment soon developed into debility, and I became thin and run down, and my dresses ceased to fit. me; I was at that time almost unable to perform my household duties, and I lost interest .in every thing. How tho complaint /came to fasten so fiercely on me is a mystery to me, and it was also a mystery how I could get anything that might cure me.. I bought various medicines, but none of th...

A Ride—And Back. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

.A RMe ? Aud Back, - ' A day's ride, a life's romance '—this hardly describes the adventure of a certain young gentleman last week, but all the same the equestrian journey that he embarked upon, might havo put an end to any hope on his part of any further participation in romauce of anv kind— on this srthere at anv rate tho horse waB brought forth, and the rider was invited to.'mounb .with dhe . assur ance — ' he's as quiet as a lamb.' On in spection the ' neddy ' certainly gave the impression that he did not fit Byron's lines — ' In trutli ho was n noble steed.' A lift into tho saddle, a tightening of the rein, and all was ready for the expedition ; and ' They'll have fleet Bteeds that follow, quoth young Loehinvar.' The road chosen was the road to Apsley. The deceitful animal certainly Bhowed no signB at first of the devil that was within him. A gontle canter and an exhilarating breeze soon warmed the rider's blood — and the horses too.

Forecasting the Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

Forecasting the Weather* Atmospheric phenomena in all ages has been a source of! great speculation not only to the scientific mind, but to those of lowly pretences ; in fact, no class of men are or havo ever been free from the love of prog nosticating tho weather. The accumulated observations of aces has demonstrated that many signs of atmospheric changeB are, without doubt, to be depended upon except ing in very, very dry weather, when all signs fail and even the scientific signal service finds its predictions are faulty. Coming eyenta — in a weather sense — al- ways cast their shadows before them, and it is only necesssry n iui those shadows cor rectly in order to become a fair prognoBtica tor or weather prophet. The instinct of animal and insect life and the sensitive vegetables and plants furnish the moat numerous data by which the common people of the world foretell the coming weather, and it is remarkable how true are their pre dictions. The sun, moon, planetB, and stars, all ...

MY NOTE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

MY NOTE BOOK. (By 'Chevy Slyhe.) The bill to be introduced during the pro Bent session of Parliament, for the suppres sion of indecent literature, is one which will commend itself to every person in tho com munity. During later yearB there has risen up a class of publication (mis-called news paper), which has pandered in every way to the lower nature of mankind, which has collected all the muck and filth from all parts of the world and retailed it to a certain ~ claBB of the community at so much per copy. It is all very well to say that people can read what they like ; if papers are constantly put before people they are almost certain to read them, and young people have no need to be introduced too early to the lower strata of every-day life. Let us keep the young people pure aB long aB we can, and we will build up a nation which can defy the world. ' By all means, let us suppress the indecent publica tions and stop the distribution of obsecne pictures, and other things of that clas...

But little work was done that day, When Gert got her machine. Folks couldn't keep their eyes away, And some felt there was need to pray, When Gert got her machine.

The Ayrshire. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

The Ayrshire. Of British breeds the Ayrshire has long been held up as the true dairy cow. 'Of the typical -dairy-cow breed,, of vigorous constitution, and yielding a larger quantity of milk in proportion to its size than anv other breed, it did not receive its high place without much i'ustice. However, nowadays that quality tas become an equally important question with quantity, espeoially in butter making.countries, the Ayrshire will have a hard fight to hold its- own with the Jersey and Kerry cattle which, though they ao not average as great a quantity, yield a milk much richer in butter-fat. The student in cattle-breeding of the present day would have difficulty in recognising the popular Ayrshire of to-day with the prints and illustrations of this breed of fifty years ago. The horns (or their absence) always are a distinguishing trait in different breeds of cattle, yet while a£ one time no exception was taken to *»' — ?ui — -'-kose thorns, provided bney were not coarse, pointed ...
