At 16 minutes to 3 o'elock both started well by mutual consent together, I with the advantage,iif any, on the part I of Laycock. The différence between the i stroke of the two men was at once per- ceptible, Hanlan pulling a cleon easy stroke, while Laycock, as is usually the case with him, made a great deal of wash, both going at only an average pace at about 28 and 30 strokes per minute res- pectively, fully 100ft in width seperatiiig the two boats, Laycock slightly leading. After a pull of about 200 yarns, both men settled down steadily on a somewhat slow stroke, aad occasionally looking at each other,, evidently making up their minds for a determined contest. When the half-mile was reached Hanlan hail obtained a half-length lead from Laycock, I both pullingsteadilyat 28 and 30.

Farmer & Grazier. Wet soil is a most unfavoiirable site for an orchard. . Somq of the largest and best American orchards allow herds of swine to pasture on the land. Half a pint of com per day.will see ewes through the lambing and greatly strengthen their young. A good milch cow to go through the winter must have good feed-and must have it regularly. Autumn ploughing kills millions of worms and insects which otherwise would remain in th soil during winter. . .-i ' ~ In England and Scotland 461,000 cat tk\ are suffering from foot and mouth disease, and in Ireland 114,000. One of the best cures for cold in a horse is a warm stable and perfect rest, with a good run in the yard or pasture. If a cellar is not too warm, a supply of raddishes, etc., for present use may be kept in boxes or barrels and covered with earth so as to prevent shrivelling. .

THE GREAT AMERICAN RIOT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 13 June 1884
THE SEE AT AMERICAN RIOT. A despatch from Cincinnati announces I that a serious riot occurred there recently in consequence of the popular dissatisfaction with the leniency of the verdict returned by the jury in a murder trial. The mob surrounded the gaol, where some other murderers were confined. The military were called out, and were compelled finally to fire upon the rioters, several of whom were killed. The mob however, increased in numbers, and broke into a store, where all the arms and ammunition on the pre- mises were seized. The gaol is still threatened by the populace, and a bitter feeling prevails against the military. The prisoner succeeded in escaping from the train while being conveyed to a neighbour- ing town. A later telegram states that a fresh attack was made with frightful results when night returned. Many of the rioters were armed, and kept up a scattering fire on the military, who returned it only by shooting in the air. Several dynamite bombs were thrown into th...
