Thirty Shillings a Week. The men employed on the earthworks of the coal line from Jumbunna to Outtrim now being constructed have been com plaining that the rates paid were too low to enable them to make a living, and it appears that their complaint was justified M?r.

The Cherry Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
The Cherry Orchard. Professor Budd of the Iowa station days that a cherry orchard does best when planted thickly in rows running north and south and giving a wider space between the rows to admit the sun and allow free circulation of air. Orchards 'where the rows were 24 feet apart and the trees 10 feet apart in the row have done better than those planted in the usual way. ,He also thinks root graft ing of the cherry is better than budding, setting them in the ground to the top bud of the scion, which enables roots to be thrown out directly from the scion.

The Worth of Fruit Tests. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
The Worth of Fruit Tests. The reports of tests of new strawber ries and other fruits from the various experiment stations and large growers make it appear- that what one man praises most highlyis utterly condemned by another. The fact is that soil, cli mate, treatment, etc., have so much to do with the matter that none of these tests, considered singly, is worth much. It is the berry that gives best results through acourseof yearsunder ordinary practical conditions that we want.
Watching Warragul. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
Watching Warragul. The eyes of a large number of farmers residing in the outlying districts are turned towards Warragul at the present moment in reference to the flax industry, and though the Warragul farmers and business people may not quite realise the importance of the issues at stake, their ultimate decision regarding the proposed establishment of a fibre manufacturing factory, has a very wide significance, and it lies in their power to make or mar a profitable industry so far as this district is concerned. The landowners for miles round are all peering anxionsiy into the future for new outlets for the product of their labor and industry to take the place of those now returning them but a bare pittance, and the fibre trade is one of those from .which very much is hoped. Farmers residing in such remote localities as Drouin South and even Longwarry South would plant largely in flax could they feel assured that they could have the raw product manufactured into marketable fibre at a...
Tearoses For Winter Bloom. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
Tenroses ror Winter Bloom. Thousands of beautiful tearoses are in existence, but there are only a few which come up to the required standard for forcing purposes, so that the first question to determine is the varieties beet suited for this purpose. 1[LIE. CUS . The following varieties have proved the best with' the editor of Gardeningr Catherine Mermet, pink; Mme. Cnsin, pink; Mme. de Watteville, pink shaded to white; Mme. Testout, pink; Kaiserin Augusta Victoria,. lemon white; The Bride, white; Mme, Hoste, cream white; Paper Gontier, deep red; Meteor, car mine, and Perle des Jardins, yello-,.

Village Settlement Draw. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
Village Settlement Draw. -The drawing for the Village Settlement sites at Trafalgar took place last week. Messrs. Whitton and Bilson were elected to supervise the drawing, which was done to the satisfaction of all applicants. After the alloting of the different blocks, quite, a -stampede took place .in the directioniof the swamp. Plans and sur vey pegs were in great demand, many applicants could not obtain either, and so awaited the return of those who had gone and inspected the promised land, and who brought back glowing accounts of mud and water and large quantities of timber underlaying the surface. Nothing daunt ed our noble flesh and bone, flying sur veys were made of each block after the spies had returned, and were able to act as guides to those who had been unable to accompany the first invaders of mud fiat. After things har quietened down and they had evidently began to realise their position, many of them inwardly felt glad that ever Captain Cook had dis covered Australia,...

Trading with Japan. With a view of testing the Japanese market for Victorian meats and fruit, the Minister of Agriculture is making arrange ments for an experimental shipment of live stock, apples, and pears to that countiry. Mr. Taverner has had an interview with Mr. Marks, the Japanese consul, on that subject, and he feels confident that good results would follow a trial shipment. Mr. Taverner hao discovered that Japan has a very large population, and if its inhabitants could be induced to acquire a taste for our meat and fruits a large market would be opened up. Some graziers, including Mlr. Connor, M.L.C., have promised to supply a few head of cattle so as to enable the trial to be made.
"DAMN IT, WE HAVEN'T GOT ACROSS THE MURRAY YET. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
"DAMN IT,-WE HAVEN'T GOT ACROSS THE MURRAY YET, Now that Mr. Turner's time is so much occupied by the gun case at the law court, Sir James Patterson has kindly leaped into the breach, and with an impulsive zeal that refuses to be limited by mere party considerations hastaken some of the Premier's work off his hands. On Friday James attended the annual meeting of the Chambersof Commerce; and announced in the course of a stirring speech that he was just leaving for Sydney in order to see Mr. Reid, the Premier of New South Wales, with a view to re nioving, if possible, the obstacles to intercolonial federation. Following up his theme, he observed that it was in the power of Victoria alone to create intercolonial federation by abolishing all restrictive conditions by legislative enactment, and declared that, unless the Tarriff Board now sitting made some such recommendation instead of confining itself to reducing the duty on an item here and there from 2ad to 2d;, their labors would sim...
Winter Flowering Nasturtiums. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
WT nterPlowerlu YNastertiume The virieties best adapted- for winter flowering are such as have' been crossed. Young plants raised now either from seed or cuttings will be just .right for planting in the greenhouse. A good place for them to climb is on the pillars as supports, on naked walls or on wires under the rafters. In such a position in a small amateur greenhouse they take up no important room. while at the same time they help makle the green house gay with flowers and always afford a cutting for the winter bouquet.. There are many colors nov, among which Prairie Farmer names the Spit fire, a bright scarlet; Giant of Battles, sulphur and spotted red; King of the Blacks, a very deep brown; Asa Gray, a soft sulphur yellow; Lilly Smith, a scar let; Cardinale, a dark scarlet; Napoleon III, a gold color, and Lucifer, a very bright scarlet.

,.:ATHE CARNATION.- - `. Itereostig FPacts an Its Hlitory, With Sag a eelnos Concerning Its Cultere. Tlie carnation, by reason of its real merit, has since 1860rapidly forced itself into, an. important: place in the flower trade of the country. Nearly 4,000 floristu are engaged' either whollyor in part in growing this plant for cut flowers, and it is estimated that last year fully! 200,000,-. 000, blooms were sold, yielding over $1, 000,000 to the .growers. The first carna tion seciety was formed in England in 1850. The American Carnation society was formed in Philadelphia in 1801. During its earliest cultivation the car nation was grown from seed or propa gated by layers. Then followed thenow-, er system of propagation by cuttings. The newer varieties are giown from seed.. Its well known habit of "sporting" from seed has not changed for 400 years a"t least;and the uncertainty of this man ner of growing makes the business of raising seedlings very. fascinating, as each openinigbhdha...

An Impudent Fox. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
An Impudent Fox, We learn that a fox was lately seen within the Township boundary on the land occupied by Messis Brooks and Whitehead and not far from Mr. John Picken's residence. It secured and made off with a full grown fowl, so poultry keepers should be on the alert. It would not be a very difficult task for a hunting party to beat the busl' in this neighbor. hood some Wednesday afternoon and try and "pot" the creature.

Local Grapes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
Local Grapes. A couple of bunches of white grapes, representing two varieties, were left at the. office' of this journal yesterday by DMr. Goodson as specimens of what the district can produce in this direction. Mr. Goodson is experimenting with a view to ascertaining the kinds that thrive best in the locality, and seeing that he is still in the experimental stage, perfection cannot reasonably be expected. The samples left with us were of very fair flavor, and would make a palatable grape if they were allowed to develop into a larger and more luscious fruit. They need thinning out considerably when the grape is beginning to form. This would give a larger and fuller flavored fruit, and would give producer and consumer far more satisfaction in the end. 'This means expenditure of time and exercise of care, of course, but the result would far more than compen sate for this.
