Auburn. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 October 1888

Auburn. Toiv.N- Baku. — Quite a number of iustru montulists connected with various musical societies reside hereabouts, and steps are being taken to form a bund for Auburn. .Some eight or nine players upon different instruments are interesting themselves in the m-ivement, which is almost certain to be successful. MlTXICIl-AL IsCOltrOHATlOX.— On Thlli'silll V evening an extraordinary meeting of tho Pro'- gress Association took place at Mr. J. Morri- I son's, on the Auburn Koad. Oivimr to lowness i of funds, no circulars had been sent out nor any advertising done, notices having simply becn posted in one or two conspicuous places, aud consequently the attendance was verv limited, those present being Messrs. G. AVright, J. Morrison, T. Taylor, Chit, and Clarke. Mr. AArright was asked to preside, and on taking the chair, he said ;it had transpired that the agitation for incorporating Rookwood was being allowed to subside.

The proceedings commenced wan tno song, ?'Friends of Temperance,' very nicely sung by Mrs. Brown. Tin- chairman then briefly addressed the meeting.

THE THREE HEAPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 October 1888

THE THREE HEAPS. ' Throo heaps are needed, if not in every garden, adjacent to it. One heap should bo for all vegetable and animal .matter that may bo converted into man ' uro ; it is perhaps better to have for this a pit instead of a heap, as unless it can bo occasionally watered, if will dry out too much in the hot months. To this hoar- or nit should so all tho weeds that will . not ripen seeds, all refuse vegetables, bits of sods, coarse lumps ? of manure raked off tho surface; with ^eat-5 and dogs that may have died suddenly, and other animal matter. If watering is heeded to induce fermenta tion, that from tho family washing is proferablo. By adding all that can be converted into manure, this heap will, during tho season, accumulate a valu able compost. The second heap is the ' Burn Heap,' and must be away from all buildings. . This should receive whatever will burn ; old stakes and .luboh ; trimmings of trees and shrubs ; old pea-brush and the like. If any vouch have been allow...

MOSS ON FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 October 1888

i MOSS ON FRUIT TREES. Mil J. 1j. Hale, of Connecticut, , writes as under to the 'American Agri , culturist' :— ' Moss is found most often on pear trees not in a vigorous growing condition, or in moist shad}' places. Tito moss is a sort of fungus growth, which is nnsilv Irmit off b\ washing the tiocb with strong soap suds. This trotit liii'iit promotes the growth of a smooth and hoalthy bark. If the trees are badly mossed over now, it will be best to t'iko an old hoe and scrape oil the Ihieko-t of the moss before washing tho trees, and then wash them two or three timus during the next two months. In thu full, after the leaves aro off, spray the whole tree, with the. soap suds, re peating this again early in the spring ; there is nothing like it to promote clean and thrifty-looking bark. At Elm Eruit Kami we make a borer wash for our peach and other trees, and it also an «iwoi'h the double purpose of keeping out the borer and keeping the bark clean and healthy. This wash is pre pared...

Division of Central Cumberland Electorate. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 October 1888

Division of Central Cumberland Electorate. A DBPiri'ATiox consisting of Messrs. N. G. Bull, Varncy Turkcs, T. W. Taylor (Liverpool), Alban Geo (Auburn), aud 'W\ P. Thirgood (Cabrumatta), waited upon Sir Hc.iiy Parkos yesterday (Friday) 'morning, to urge tho desir ability of having the electorate of Central Cumberland divided. The deputa tion wus introduced by Mr. JohuNobbs, fil.P., who said the movement had his hearty coop eration and sympathy. The deputation did not intend to define the boundaries, nor were they wedded to any definite proposal ' whether the electorate should be divided into two or three constituencies. Tho electorate was too uu wieldly, aud it was simply impossible for the members to do justice to every part of the oounty. Mr. P. Darnell, M.P., sent a telegram to Sir Henry apologising for his absence, but stating thut he hoped lie would give tho matter his favourable consideration. Mr. N. Ct. Bull said it was the unanimous wish of tho electors that a division shoul...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 October 1888

MISCELLANEA. ' Money is like muck, not good except it be spread.' — Bacon. Cayenne pepper, horse radish, and onions, ?nixed with ordinary food for poultry, will lead to increased egg pro duction. Among methods of preserving wood for stakes and trellis posts, etc., are thoroughly charring the lower ends, and soaking them in a strong solution of Bhi3 Vitriol (Sulphate of Copperas). Ono pound of Paris green to 100 gal lons of water is now regarded as all sufficient for the spraying for fruit trees for cocllin moth, but Professor Oook is inclined to think that one pound to 200 gallons is enough, if tho mixture is carefully and constantly stirred. It is often desirable in the garden to measure a certain distance, as between rows and between plants. It will take but a fhorfc time to make upon the hoe and rake-handles marks for feet and half-feet. These may do put on with black paint, or cut with a knife or chisel ; they should not be where they will interfere with the comfort of handling....
