What is popularly known as ' side ' is fre quently a bad tliiug. Modesty, that much rarer quality, usually effects morn, probably because people, in at least one respect, usually follow the example of Peter at Joppa, and do not care for auythiug that is common. Thev think that thev would like ortolans better than plain mutton, anil not seldom discover that they have made a mistake. And such must have been the condition of Wagga when it was decided to form the un pretending, but certainly useful Postal Reform Committee into a Chamber of Com merce. Tlie latter worshipful body has never yet taken off its christening-robes, but with all the honours of its baptism growing remarkable stale upon it lolls lazily in its cot, without even the sign o£ au infautiuc kick. The Committee was rather a vigorous youngster, bet life became 'quite too much awfully a bore ' directly it was named 'Chamber of Commerce.'

LANTGSHAN FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

LANGS1TAN FOWLS. A correspondent of the London Agricultural Gazette writes to the following effect respecting this variety of fowls, which at present is occupying some attention in the poultry-fancying circles of England : — ' He is convinced from examination that whatever affinity they mav have to the Cochin race, they possess sufficient characteristics to entitle them to the possession of a claim as a separate class from Cochins. It appeal's to him also that they are well adapted for fanners' poultry, and that few breeds are more suitable for farm yards. These fowls arc remarkable as winter layers, at a time other hens are idle. Beginning in the autumn, they lay from 90 to 100 of fair and rather over the average size of eggs. They are careful mothers. The male birds weigh from 81b. to 121b., the hens from 71b. to 101b. They make weight rapidly on ordinary fate, averaging something like lib. a month for the first six nionthsi The writer had not tested them as table birds, but is in...

Dew of the Alps. — The perfect adaptation of this hj'gieuic cordial to the ailments and disabilities incident to our climate was made manifest 600n after its introduction into Australia a few years ago. From that time to the present its popularity has increased, and Messrs. Moss and Co., the agents of the manufacturers in Geneva, are now placing it in our markets in large quantities. It commands a rapid sala As a vitalising preparation, it is looked upon as superior to all other tonics, whilst its excellent flavour, which is not surpassed by that of any other cordial in use, renders it a uuiveisal favourite among our discriminating public, It is strongly recommended as a specific for want of appetite, and as a matchless invigorant for,. convalescents and aged persons. — Adv. - **

THE DRAUGHT HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 22 March 1879

THE DRAUGHT HORSE. A useful farm horse (writes a ' North Country Man' to the Agricultural Gazette) may be of the Shire-bred, Suffolk, or Clydesdale variety. Those crossed with stout blood, ie., coaching blood, make excellent vanners, thus im proving the shoulder by virtue of in creased obliquity, flattening the limbs and developing the hind-ouarters. si vine increase of length, but never at the expense of muscularity. By this method the tail is also better sprung. They are a very 'taking sort,' having a nice look-out and most saleable in large centres of industry where dispatch is the essence of the contract, and time is indeed money. There is no other breeding except Shorthorns where fashion or sterling quality is so prized, and it is fashionable breeding and true action with force that pleases the eye of the dealer. Picture a grand sort of ready seller. * His head is fine, his eye prominent, ears well set, his neck gradually curved with an elevated crest (well sprung), this should...
