The Longevity of Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

The Longevity of Trees. It is generally admitted that European trees have rarely exceeded the very respect able age of 800 years. Thus, recent information gathered by the German Forestry Commission assigns to the pine 503 and 700 years as a maximum, 425 years to the Bilver fir, 275 years to the larch, 245 years to the red beech, 210 years to the aspen, 200 years to tbe birch, 170 years to the ash, 145 years to the alder, and 130 years to the elm. The heart of the oaks begin to rot at about the age of 300 years. The holly oak alone escapes this law, and there is a specimen of this aged 410 years in exist ence near At scbafenburg, in Germany. At tbe Edinburgh Forestry Exhibition, four years ago, there were exhibited* two transverse sections of a couple of Scoth firs. One of these, which was seven and a quarter feet in diameter, was 217 years of age ; tbe other, which was but five and three quarter feet in diameter, was older, and exhibited 270 annual rings. A Sequoia gigantca felled i...

Industry and Genius. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

Industry and Geoia9- Tbe difference between genius and talent may ar pest to some minds as too slight to be easily or clearly distinguishable. Yet between them there is a generally conceded difference. But if, as some writers assert, genius is but another name for industry, then surely it is no easy task to define talent. Our notion is tbat genius is the highest degree of ability ; and talent is that degree which \s exceeded in value and intensitv onlv bv eenius itself. Men of genius oooupy the first rank, accord ing to the popular verdict. Men of talent are at the head of the second rank, when they barely fail of work -yhich denotes genius. Those who ^qssesb .the latter are never challenged as to their right 'to the title there of— especially when th-ur- work displays its presence in a marked and indisputable degree.. ^ ; . ; ? :.'- ^ Afen o! tai^t ;attra«it notice,1or. excite admiration. wkeaevcr itolr workiappehs ^to:1 be excellent without being great; or .when their manner.indic...

THE FEDERAL CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

The Federal Convention. The great Convention now sitting at Sydney appears to be making very good headway, although at one period it seemed as though the Federation scheme was likely to fall to the ground. Mr. Munro one of the Victorian delegates on one occasion appeared to be jump ing over the traces, and altogether is not such a -success as -could be de sired. He had little pet ideas to promulgate, and because he could not have his own way, he returned: home in anything but an amiable mood last Vqreek.

Canning Green Tomatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

Canning Green Tomatoes . A correspondent asks whether green to matoes can be profitably canned for winter use V' I have successfully canned them for a number of years. I generally use those that remain unripened when the cool weather comes on. Salect those that have not even commenced to turn ; wash them clean and cut tsiem into pieces as you would apples for stewing (you need not p:el them unless you want them very nice) ; put them in a porcelain-lined or agate-ware kettle, cover with water and let them come to a boil to remove the strong taste and bright green color ; take them out in a colander and drain off all the water, then replace them in the kettle after having weighed them, adding half a pound of light brown sugar to each pound ; let them boil about an hour or more, being careful to stir very fre quently to prevent burning ; about 10 minutes before you take them from the kettle slice, lemons enough to allow two or three slices in each jar ; fill the jars and fasten up air-...

Potatoes in Different Ways. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

Potatoes in Different Ways . Does anybody want to know tbe varia tions played in our kitchen on the tune of plain, cold, boiled potatoes? Here they arc : Milk is the key-note, and tbe first wire is this : Put three-fourths cup of milk — with the cream on — in a shallow frjing-pan; heat to boiling point, then add a pint of cold sliced potatoes, salt, pepper, and a generous lump of butter ; simmer gently a few minutes, and serve hot. A second recipe is : one cap of milk to which, i when it boils, is added a tablespaonful of corn-starch paste, then put in one pint of potatoes cut in dice, and the salt, pepper and butter needful. Or instead of corn starch, stir iu a well-beaten egg just before serving. The other variations are made by using the above ingredients and adding different flavors : as at one time sprays of fresh parsley : at another boiled cjrn cut from the cob : at another a sliced onion or two — though these last must be cooked in water awhile before being added to the po t...

House and Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 April 1891

Mouse mid garden, tl Isn't it strange,' said a short, foreign looking man tbe other day to some com panions while lunching together at one of the restaurants, 41 that not one cook in fifty, nor housekeeper, either, knows how to boil an egg? And 'yet most people -think' they- know this simnle mat ter.' . They will fell you todrop it into boiling water and let it remain three' minutes, and to be sure the water is boiling. Here is where the mistake is made; An egg so prepared is indigestible and hardly fib for a well person, let -alone one Who is sick, to eat. The moment it is pi tinged into boilijqg water the white hardens and toughens. To boil an egg properly, put it in a vessel, cover with cold water, place over the fire, and the seeond tbe water be gins to boil your egg is done. The white is as delicate as jelly and as easily digested and nutritions as it should be. Try it. An hotel clerk .has discovered a cheap and effectual pen wiper. It is nothing more or less than a good-sized ...
