Agricultural and Horticultural. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 2 March 1889
Agricultural and Horticultural. (By Westhead) ''? The Aeods Feuit Show was a decided suece:s as a pomological exhibition. The show of citrus varieties was (comparatively speaking) weak; while that of grapes, poaohos, apples and pears was ?strong.1 The lout ensemble was an exceptionally fine display of seasonable fruit. Generally, 'good' to 'fine' quality pro vailed: but. of course, mediocre exhibits were present, though few. Tho collections wero grand, Mr. . Fagan's being the largest. Mr. Maher's (which took the first prize) was in tho opinion of many a less attractive 0110 than Mr. Vollmer' s, which only secured commendation : yet I for one endorse tho verdict of the judges, who did their work throughout in businesslike fashion. 'I was amused to note that one ex hibitor of a general collection had a plate of chilis in his otherwise carefully solected lot. When I. spoko to him about it ,hc said he thought a chili was every .whit as.mueh en titled to bo rankod a9 a fruit as a waterme...

The Albury Grape Crop. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 2 March 1889
The Alfoury Grape Crop. The vintage of this district will bo com menced about the second week in March, being rather earlier than usual. Tho crops generally are well forward, but tho vintage is hastened owing to tho ravages of birds, principally of the minah species, which have been particularly destructive this season. Tho muscatel grapes liavo suffered greatly from this cause, and being of an early kind were interfered with by the prolonged drought, and tho crop will be very light. Almost every vine recently in spected shows traces of tho damage done by the birds, and thero was also a good deal of oidium in some of tho species of grapes. Mao beo and burgundy promise to yield exceptionally well, and the crop of whito grapes generally will be largo. Tho tests of tho different species of grapes show that although tho crop is prolific, 'the alcoholic strength of the grapes will be up to the average.

[AS SEEN BY ANOTHER OF OUR EYES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 2 March 1889
[as seen by another of our eyes.] In writing up the result of our effort to stimulate our fruitgrowing friends to produce superior . fruit, and, second, to seek to aid the funds of the Parramatta District Hospital, we might bo pardoned for saying a few trifling things reflecting crodit on ourselves. When we say we are pleased with the result of our effort from a scientific point of view, we be lieve wo aro merely re-echoing the opinion of most who visited tho local Town Hall on Saturday ;last. The display of fruit was a grand ono and exceeded our modest expecta tions. Thus our first intention, namely, th induce the grower of Contral Cum berland to show tho outside world what ho could do in the way of bringing out the choicest things in fruit culture, was realised. Our second intention, togive a helping hand to the institution which is doing and has done so much for suffering humanity, was not up to our very shy expectations, and the fact re- mains that but for the liberality of Mess...

Hornsby. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 9 March 1889
Hornsby. Tin-: weather is very dry, rain is badly wan ted*'; water for domestic use is getting low. Tiiu orange crop is the lightest known for years, and lemons are still scarcer. Flying foxes are very troublesome just now ; scarcely anything in the shape of fruit escapes them. Tho camp is at the head of the Borowra creek, where they are hanging in tens of thousands, and wo would recommend a trial of dynamite. It has been spoken of in this district. Tho late Mr. Hissins often recommended it and believed it would prove a success. That gentleman had great experience with this combustible, and guaranteed to destroy 70 per cent, of the eamp if assistance were offered. We would like to see the Fruitgrowers Union take this recommendation up and give it a thor ough trial before the camp is disturbed. I am sure they would get the co-operation of most of the fruit growers, to vid the post. Mr. OsBOiis lost a valuable horse last week through congestion of the bowels. The animal was one of the...

THE FERRIS TROPHY AVERAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 9 March 1889
THE FEREIS TROPHY AVERAGES. The batting averages of the Fen-is Trophy contests have been compiled under great difti*-. culties by officials of the Central Cumber land Cricket Association, but it has been found . absolutely impossible to make up tho bowling analysis. Many of the scoring sheets sent in show discreditable slovenliness, and initials have been omitted iu several cases where it was absolutely necessary that tho compiler should bo so guided. Members of clubs who discover the annihilation of their deeds of prowessshould consultt heir secretaries for correction, because the scoring sheets furnished (and thero are many unfurnished) will not assist them It will be seen that our young friend, 13. Blillor, of the Rosehill C.C,' head's the list with tho first-class average of 31, which entiiles him to Dr. God son's trophy. Tho constant Kirby, of Field of Mars, has a higher number of runs to his credit, but he completed most innings. Fol lowing aro complete averages : — ? _____ _....
