Bulbs in Winter. But few amateur florists neglect to plant a collection of bulbs in autumn for winter flowering. Some of them succeed in getting them to flower well, but many fail partially, and some wholly. " I don't see how you manage to get each fine blossoms," said a lady to me la-t winter, as she looked over my tulips and hyacinths when they were in full bloom. " 1 rot the best bulbs I could find, potted them in rich soil. watered them well, and haven't lad a good flower from over two dozen of them. There must be a knack habout it. I can't understand why I failed and you don't un. less there is a knack somewhere." I asked her how she treated her plants. "I put them in pots, placed thLem in the window, and tried to m:al:e them grow," was h'r rely7, 'But they wouldn't grow ns f expected them to. Some of them put ,p a few weak little leaves, and that was about all they amounted to." "You potted them And placed them imma. diatacv in the window ?" I asked. " Ye, of course," was hor ...

Rondeau. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 17 June 1892
Across theo fields like awnllows fly Sweet thoughts and sad of days gone by, From life's bread highway turned away; Like children, thought and memory play, Nor heed Time's acythe, though grass be high. Beneath the blue and eboreless h:y, Time is but told when Fedelinge dry, By love'a light b:esth, and blown like spray Acrcss the fijds. Now comes the scent of fallen hay, And flowers l;estrew the foot-worn way, And summer breathes a ipassing sigh, As westward fails the day's gold eye, And Time and LDbor ends his day Across the fielde.

Unexpected Finds. In tearing down an old chimney at Powder Springs, Ga., recently L200 in gold was found. In the gizzard of a spring chicken killed at Lebeek, Me., was found a small gold pin lost ten years before. While ploughing his corn, Will Evans, of Kennet, Mo., ploughed up a large kettle made of stone, containing, he thinks, about 30lbs. of Indian beads. A small iron safe containing about L3000 worth of diamonds and other precionu stones was dredged up from the bay at San Fran. eisco. The settings of the stones are in the sixteenth century style.

Diamonds have been found in British (Guiana, where a gold mine owner recently collected 838 stones. Many of the barbarous natives of Africa make cigars, if such a word can be applied to kobacce roughly rollel up in a leaf. An imitation wine is made from figj in Algeria by steeping the figs in warm water and fermenting the liquor obtained. Egypt has been inundated by crowds of people "doing " the Nile in steamers or dahabeahe, each armed with his own special fancy in the way of a camera.
