Against Jersey Inbreeding. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Against Jersey Inbreeding.e Enrotas was the result of an outcross. Her owner generally bred her and her descendants together without good re suits in that way, but other people bred her sons upon imported and other cows that were no kin to her, and the result of that course has been the large num ber of tested granddaughters of Eurotas. I bought at public and private sales several, granddaughters of Eurotas, in bred, asd never could make a good cow out of one of them, but I never, out of eight of her granddaughters which were outerossed, failed but in one instance to make a tested cow, although I bought them all as calves before they were de veloped. Tennessee people have been very suc cessful breeders of Jerseys, and they have from the start adopted the simple plan of breeding the good individuals of different approved families together and never inibreeding closely.-New Dairy.

Why Does Water Simmer Before it Boils? [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Why Does Water Simmer Before it Boils ? The heat being applied to the bottom of the vessel, the lowest layer of the water becomes hot first, and after a time some of it is converted into steam, forming a bubble, which rises into the upper part of the liquid. This upper part is still below the bailing point, and so the bubble collapses with a sharp, rattling noise called simmering. When, however, the upper part has become sufficiently hot, the bubbles do not collapse, but escape at the surface. The water is then in the state called boiling.
FRUIT & FLOWERS. HOW TO MAKE A LAWN. Preparing the Soil—How and When to Seed—A Good Lawn Mixture. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
HOW TO MAKE A LAWN. Preparing the Soil-How and IWhen to Seed-A Good Lawn Mixture. First, if the land is not naturally well drained, it must be brought into condi tion by underdrainage. The soil best adapted to the growth of a good sward is a sandy loam with a gravelly, bottom. The land should first be plowed and then graded. The surface ought to be heavily dressed with manure, which should be lightly turned under, the sur face dragged until fine and then rolled. Only first class seed ought to be used. James Sheehan, in his manual on tender and hardy plants, says: The finest sward we ever saw was made from the following mixture: Ten quarts Rhode Island bent grass; four quarts white clover; eight quarts Ken tncky blue grass; six. quartsered top grass. Sow at.the rate-of six bushels to the acre. Grass seed can be sown in the fall any time from the 1st of October.to the 1st of December. If the seed be sound a good sward may be expected the following summer, and a good turf may be expect...

Calla Lilies. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Calla Lilles. The calla is a popular favorite found in every window garden collection. Like other bulbous plants callas must have a season of rest. If required to bloom during the winter or spring months they must be rested in summer. The blooming season can be reversed if desired by resting in winter. To prepare callas for winter blooming shake off the old soil from the bulbs kept over during the sumner and repot in fine, rich soil, employing pots one size larger than those used the previous year; place the plants in a cool, shady spot A SPOTTED CALLA. and water freely.

A Lion-Tamer Mangled. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
- A Lion-Tamer Dlangled, A terrible affair occurred on 13th February, at the wild animal show at the Midwinter Exhibition in 'Frisco. A lion tamer named Carl Thieman was going through his performance in the lions' cage, when the electric lights suddenly went out. Three of the lions immediately sprang upon Thieman, who was fearfully margled. He was rescued alive by the proprietor of the show, a man named Boone, who, as soon as the lights were restored, entered the cage with an iron bar, and drove the animals off from their prey. But meanwhile Thieman had received no less than forty-three wounds, which, it is feared, will prove fatal. The audience were terrcr-striclken by the oc currence.
Ferns for Winter. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Ferns for WInter. Ferns all require a moist atmosphere, and if near the glass should be protected from direct sunlight. The soil, as a rule, should be of a peaty nature, but for the strong growing kinds a large proportion of loam may be used. A plentiful supply of water is the most important item; indeed, with healthy and well drained plants it is almost im possible to give too much, at least dur ing the period of active growth. If the plants are grown in tubs or pots it is advisable, when a new whorl of fronds is being made, to give frequent supplies of manure water. In large conserva tories the most beautiful effect is ob tained by planting on a rockery and choosing plants and species suitable to the height of the structure. In such an arrangement it is essential that the plants should be set at different heights, so that each head is shown to advantage and the stems are not hidden.
THE LADIES' COLUMN. Folded Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. Folded Hands. Pathetic, white, patient and weary, Folded together at re.t Over a heart which forgets to throb In the tired, sileqt breast. No lady's unused, soft hands are these, But work-worn, old and grey, Every line in them tells of duty done In the toil and heat of the day. Noblo, brave, helpfull, tender hands, They~'re lovelier far to me Than of jewelled, soft or daintily kept, And dearer they could not be. No longer the common toil and care, Fulfilled all the duty hard, Nothing to do now but folded wait For the Master's rich reward. -IS.AEL GOBDO,. -- C

I shall only be too happy at all times to recommuend Clements Tonic to all my friends.-I remain, yours gratefully, David Davies, Mordialloc.

A DESCRIPTIVE CONSTABLE. Some most uncompromising evidence as to the character of the associates of the jockey Hayes, who is the plaintiff in the libel action against " The Aus tralasian," claiming £5000 damages, was given by Constable Michael M'Donald on Monday. He deposed that he had frequently seen Hayes in Bourke-street in company with "'Chuck,' Dalrymple, "Billy Buck" Griffo, Kirby, Conway, and Cohen, and and in brief but emphatic language he sketched the charaters of these men.

Widow and Widower. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Widow and Widower. The lady was a widow, and rich-very rich as the French novelist says, richiesime. The gentleman was a widcwer; past sixty; extremely, even ridiculously, poor; and the las of a most noble and most historical House. History is fullof the achievements of his people. Froissart mentions their exploits in every other page; they were always taking this side or the other, for the King and against the King. When they took a side they meant it; cut they marched, they and theirs, in full armour. Whichever side they took, it always ended in their being captured and decapitated for high treason, orelse killedin battle. From father to son, from generation to genera tion, for long centuries, none of them ever went out of the world from an inglorious feather bed; it was always from the grassy field of honor or from a scatfold. A grey beard was unknown in that house, nor had any of them over experienced the tender emotions of a grandfather. The lady, besides being a widow and rich...

A Prince's Marriage and Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
A Prince's Marriage and Wealth. It is probable that only the Queen and the Dowager Duchesses of Buccleugh and Aber corn can thoroughly recollect all the circum itances attending the marriage of the late Prince Nicholas Esterhazy and Lady Sarah Villiers in 1542. The Prince's father had been for a great number of years the Austrian Ambassador in London, and for some time he rented Chandos House from the Duke of Buckingham. Prince Esterhazy was famous for his jewelled uniform, which he wore on all State occasions, and which was adorned with diamonds valued at L100,000. He had a considerable quickness in conversa:ion. and when a well known peor boasted of his flock of 4000 sheep the Prince retorted : "And I, my lord, have 4000 shepherds." Princess Esterhazy was a beauty and as great a favorite of George IV. as the Princess Lioven. The Prince and Princess did not approve of the engagement of their son to Lady Sarah Villiers, as not only was ehe a Protestant, but there was what the martin...
