BRIEF NOTES. . The orchard is no place for cattl or but the proper place for hogs;E seep and poultry. Do Don't feed the stock too highs over feeding clogs, but feed at short intervals all they will eat clean. The great secret of proper pruning con sists in knowing the nature of the subject to be operated upon, the future use of each There is no hen feed, particularly for layers, which will be found to give better satisfaction-than*wheat-at Chikho ne .W'W3 ld soon learn to eat whole grains of wheat, and will thrive on it. The peach, apricot and nectarine producel their fruit mostly upon` one year-old wood, and it is therefore necessary to prune them in such a manner that a general supply of. good bearing shoots will be annually pro duced. As a rule large apples" do nbotkeep asqlong as small ones of the same variety.

Won't Point. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Won't Point. A gentleman. living near 'this township, says a contemporary, has a parrot that knows a good deal-more than the law allows. Last summer a friend of his, whose name we with-' hold for obvious reasons, called at his house. one day. A valuable. young dog, a pointer, was with him. The: two gentlemen sat on the porch smoking, and the parrot, which is very,tame, was seated in an interstice in the porch. .The dog was lying on the fl6or.at his master's feet, and finally hisattentioi was called to the bird, which was looking steadily at him. The dog sprang up, drew on the parrot; and fastened. There he stood, still: as a statue, for full three minutes, when the' parrot, with a contemptuous :flirt of his feathers, screamed at him : " Go home, you infernal fool " 'The dog dropped tail and ears, wheeled round and struck a straight line over the fields for home.'' Sined that time he has refused to point a bird.

One Good Turn Deserves Another. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

One Good Turn Deserves Another. Inthe beginning of the leafy month of Junie, in the year of grace 1874, I one morn ing received a letter from a friend in London which surprised me very much. So far as I can at present remember that letter read something like :-" Dear Charley,-The in. closed cutting from lcCall will explain it self. Some time this week I shall wire you to back one of the horses named' to win £1,000, and hope you will be able to get me as good a price as possible. Be sure also to have a biton for yourself.

Conjugal Tiffs. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Conjugal Tiffs. The wonderful trials of temper imposed by matrimony can scarce ever be known to an outsider. The provocative power of a woman, which is naturally considerable, be comes many degrees intensified by marriage. First of all, the intimacy of that mode of life renders her thoroughly acquainted with all the weak points of her lord. She knows exactly where to hurt him most severely and where to touch a raw place hidden from the rest of the world. There is no doubt that when Xantippe pitched crockery at the sconce of her husband she accompanied the missiles with jeers at the poorman's doctrines. Milton, it is said, suffered horribly from the tongue of his helpmate, and :we can imagine her not only hiding his pen and ink, but making fun of ,his verses. But there are historical cases where the battles were of chronic occurrence. In real life people, when married, do not altogether bark and bite. There are inter vals of repose when the atmosphere is clear and the sun shines; or,...
