Transplanting Evergreens. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

Transplanthng Emgreens At a convention of Iowa horticultnr ists, a member advised when buying ev ergreens to procure them from a trust. worthy nurseryman. The roots of an evergreen ought never to be exposed to the sun or air. A few minutes of expos ure of the roots to the sun will kill any evergreen. The sap in the roots will turn to rosin, and no amount of water will dissolve the rosin, and the plant must die. This is the reason that so many ev ergreens that are bought from tree pel dlers fail to grow. The tree is dead be fore it reaches the planter, who thinks otherwise because the tops are green. When small transplanted evergreens can be had from r2 to o per hundred, there is no reason why they should not be more .extensively planted by farmers, both for ornament and for shelter belts. The advice was also given never to buy seedling evergreens, either from the tim ber or from seed beds, as they will fail to grow. It requires an expert to make them grow, as they require great care...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. Principles of Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

AGRICULTURAL C1LUNM, Principles of Breeding, It is generally supposed that the pooton will, at least to some extent, inherit the qoleU ties of the parents: hence saucese depends to a great extent on the exercise of the skill sad judgment of the breeder in the selection o? the sire and dam ; a knowledge of their parentagg throughout several generations is of vita: ilr. portance. A predisposition to disease, says ?a American breeder, is equally transnissible, .sis that of a healthy and robust constitution. If t no unusual ocenrrence for certain well- sar"ke peculiaritios to be absent in one or two goner. ation, and yet appear in the next.

DARNUM. A POLICEMAN WANTED ! [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

DARNUM. A POLICEMAN WANTED! -o Considering the smallness of its population, Darnum has certainly a very fair proportion of the larrikin element. They make their presence felt in a most unpleasant manner, and no end of annoyance is being given to many peaceful townspeople. To the Darnum larrikin nothing is sacred. They over turnjtrollies in the station yard, place obstacles on Cropley's tramway, rob orchards and back yer!s, and damage property with a most indiscriminate disregard for the rights of others. Not long ago the owner of a trolly, which was standing in a yard, thought lie had made it secure by locking a chain round the wheels. But what does the Darnum larrikin care for locks and chains. He simply wrenched the whole thing off, and overturned the trolly in the bargain. Other owners of trollies have been similarly treated. A short time ago Mr. Cox was bringing his cream down the tramway on a trolly when he fortunately noticed an obstruction placed across the rails-a big piece ...

Tho various systems of sowing wheat have been tested at the Kansas Experiment Station, chiefly with the view of tryinu the muthod known in the United States as" listing " which has been strongly recommended for arid regions. By this method the seed is deposited in furrows from 61n. to 10in. deep. Trials of several plans of sowing have been made since 1589, and in everyyear but one the "listed" wheathas done best. The" lister" used in the trials consisted of three small double shovels, as they are styled (double plough breasts being probably meant) attached to the frame of the drill in front of three seed coulters.

She Was But a Country Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

She Was But a Country Girl. She was a pretty country girl, rustic but sweet and innocent as a flower. He was an artist from the city, and a poet, and he loved the rustio maiden. SIt is so sweet to love in the pristine prettiness of the provinces. He hadfound it so, and this soft night in September, when the moon was touching the earth and the air with its silver fingers, he had chosen to tell his love and claim the heart he felt was throbbing in unison with his own. As she sat by him there in the gloaming, with the soft breezes making harp strings of her golden hair, there was p tender music in his heart he had never known before. ' "Dear one," he murmured, as he held her hand tightly in his, " I love you; love you with all the energy of my passionate nature and, here, this night, in the presence of the stars and yonder lambent Luna, I ask you to give me that place in your young affections every true man should be given at the hand of the woman he would make his own forever."

Prunes Prunes are just now beging to attract more than ordmnary attention in Australia, hy reason of their.value as dried fruit, and the suitabilty of our conditions of soil end climate to produce. France, more than any other euntry, is the land bi prunes, and it is ameWedr: that this useful and excellent fruit was injtro duced into France by the Crusaders, and to have been first cultivated by the inmates of a convent near Clairac. The plum tree is preia ably cultivated in several of the departmeuts, and grows well in any situation that is favol' able to grapes. The fruits usually gathered, niafter the night' damps have dried away by shakinglightly from the tree, and only such as falls readily is taken.

Both_ will be welcome, but it would be better if it could be arranged that one eloven should come next year and the other in 19395. Neither aspires to meet the full strength of England' but both wish to play good class cricket, and with the pressure of county matches there may be a difliculty in arranging suitable programmes for them. Some definite in formation will be anxiously awaited both from the Capeo and Philadelphia within the next few days, the meeting of county secretaries, to arrange nextseason'e fixtures, being held on Tuesday next at Lord's. Unless thr counties approve, it will, of course, ' be folly to attempt to carry out the proposed plans. The South African players would seem to, have the prior claim.
