NATURE. Gorge of the Mississippi. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
NATURE. - - - .. te-- - Gorge of the Misslastppl. The falls of Niagara are familiar to all and came to exist through caoses natural ands easy of explanation, inasmuch as the whole. secret lies in the character of the formationus over which the river flows, via, a crust made] up from 60 to 100 feet of comparatively hard: limestone lying in a nearly horizontal poset tion, beneath which is a deep deposit e! shoals and sandstone. Whenever the rive? in wearing its channel back resched the point where this arrangement of roecs began, the' hard limestone would naturally resist the erosive action of the waters, while the ando.! lying shoals and sandstones, offering less v.?' eistance, would be rapidly cut away, until al vertical fall such as is now seen would be the result, with a constant recession going on, leaving below the broad canon, walled e* either side by bluffll, the crusts of which tre preserved by the limestone crowning them, These few reflections as to the falls and gorge of Ni...
THE KYABRAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1894. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
THE KYABiAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MONING. -0- FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1894. CENTRALISATION is undoubtedly the curse of Victoria. For a generation the people have been attracted towards the overgown metropolis until, a few years ago, a condition of affairs existed to which thie modern world affords no paralell. Nearly half the population of a fertile country were crowded into the capital city where opportunities for re productive labor could not possibly be afforded to all. The millennium of bricks and mortar made its advent, and, for a brief space, Victorian humanity appeared to -flourish like theiscriptural bay-tree. Fortunes-on paper-were made in a day, and in the-elusive quest of phantom wealth many hitherto respected men for got the ordinary obligations of honesty. Their example was contagious and served to bring forth from their retreats those human sharks, who, like the plague of frogs, camre up and covered the land. The results of the commercial immorality thus engendered, w...
FARMER Feeding for Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
FARNMER Feeding for Eggs. There is little doubt that the prodnotion if eggs may ho largely increased by a beyte. matic, eiieititi plan of feudiu?g; and the tverago poultry.hl4oper should give this matter a deal of study and atteutieu. The icientiflio part of it need not frighten any one who is willing to read, study and put into practice what he learus. Those who are recognised authorities as rset that the egg product of a hen in her prime is about three times her own weight yearly, and in view of this fact tio inipor aneo of supplyinlg her with food rich in all the elements that make the egg is at once apparent. An egg containu all the elements of a living uhick-fish, hone rinew, blood, and feather--boides thoe shell matter, which is mostly lime. The principal elemncts in 'Ls egg are aulphur, oil, phosphorous, lime and nitrogen. Thl food that is given the hen should coutain all the elements that exist in the egg. These are found in wheat, oats, corn, bran, linseed, crushed bone, nm...

Pure Air for Butter. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
Puro Air for 'lntter. Dairymen are well aware of the impor tance of pure air in the manufacture of but ter, and of the fact that elight impurities are readily absorbed and diminish tbo excellence of the product. An interesting instance is giocn in the proceedings of the seventh an nual convention of tihe Ontario Agricultural and Experimental Uninn, reported by the Agricultural College of Guelph. There were two brothers, both extensive butter makers and importers; one was an hanhitul smoker, while the other did not ueo tobacco in any shape or form. They botllh old their butter through on agent on a foreign market, and the one who did not en kbe always received a higher price for his butter than the other. Not being able in any other way to find out why this distinction should be made, they at last resolved to change and reverse the labels on the peakages as an experiment. In due time a letter was received Irom the agent stating that the strange fact of a die agreeable taste or flavor...

Tramp tramp,-across the land they speed; Splash, splash,-across the sea. -lurra I the dead can ride apace I Dost fear to ride with me?
HUMOR. Josiar. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
HUMOR. Jo501* I never kin for4gt the day That we went out a walkin,' An' sot down on the river bank, An' kept on hours a.talkin'; He twisted up my apron-string, An' folded it together, An' said he thought for harvest-time 'Twas cur'as kind o' weather. The son went down as we sot there Josiar seemed uneasy, And mother she began to call: " Lo*eeoy I 0, Loweezy I" An' then Josiar spoke right up, AsI was just a-startin', An'said: "Loweezy, what's the use Of us two ever partin' ?" It kind o' took me by surprise, An' yet I knew 'twas comin' I'd heard it all the summer long, In every wild bee's hummin'; I'd studied out the way I'd act, But, law I I couldn't do it; I meant to hide my love from him, But seems as if he knew it; An' lookin' down into my eyes - He must have seen a fire, An' ever since that hour t've loved An' worshiDoed my .Toeiar.

THE TRIUMPH OF THE DOUBLE-FURROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
THE TRIUMPH OF THE DOUBLE FURROW. Mitchell and Co., of 655 and 657 Elizabetlh-street, Melbosurne, the well known agricultural implement makers, may fairly claim to have achieved a pro nounced success in the . making of -ilouble-furrow ploughs. At the Wo rribee Grand Champion Match of 1891, they took first, second, and third prizes in the class with only three ploughs at work. In the following year at Wcrribec, they again took first and second prizes. In 1893 they crowned these performances at the International Plouglirng Match, held near Hobart, Tasmania, on 4th and 5th October, 1893, by securing first prize for tre only double-fur'row plough they had at work. In addition they gained the silver trophy as the most successful plough makers at the same match. In the field trials which have taken placei in the colonies lduring the last few years, Mitchell and Co's. imple ments have asserted their superiority on many occasions when in competition with the leading manufacturers. Of course...
A PROGRESSIVE FIRM. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 13 July 1894
A PROGRESSIVE FIRM. Although J. Byrne anid Co., mantel makers, etd. etc., of No. 4 Viaduct Buildings, Flinders Street,' Melbourne, only started business seome nine years ago their name is- a household one even beyond the confines of Victoria. The dwellers in Riverina and the back blocks of New South Wales now patronise the firm largely, and this is only the pre cursor to an Australasian wide connec tion. The secret of success is easily explained. Good articles at the lowest price, promptness Tiif despatch, and careffil packing go far in a trade where most of the articles are of an exceptional and fragile nature. The list dealt with by the firm is a forimidable one. Mantel pieces running ill value from 2s to .E72 each, constitute but an item in the stock, though the range in prices will sufli ciently inldicate the variety in that line. As anl advertisement on anotler page will show, the premises contain amlongst other things kitchen ranuges, one-fire cooking stoves, tiled and registe...
