ROOT CROP SEED GROWING. PRACTICAL HINTS FOR PRODUCTION OF SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898

ROgT CRUP SEED CROWINC. PRACTICAL HINTS FOR PRODTUC TION OF SEEDS. Very few large arable land farmers, even those farming in suitable districts, grow the turnip, mangold-wurtzel, and other root crop seeds they annually re quire to sow for their cattle-feeding purposes. Why this should be so is strange, for the crop is easily grown. If the lafge farmer would grow the seeds he needs for his own purposes,and also supply his neighbors farming in a smaller way, it should be to their mutual benefit. Their combizned requirements should make the quantity large enough to he well worth growing. Bunt even sup posing the farmersows theseed solely for ping the farmer grows the see rolely for his own use, turnip, kale, and kohl-rabi seed will keep a long time, either un-, thrashed in a stack, or if thrashed, by giving it an occasionl blowing through the dressing machine, or by thoroughly mixing a little well-sifted slacked lime with the seed in the sack.

CHINESE MANDARINS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898

CHINESE ? MANDA IRINS. The present revolt in Ch;na is direct d against the mandarin. This is what a writer in "Cornhill" says about llhim: Most mandarins pa?s the whole of their lives without taking a single yard of exercise. The late Nankinig viceroy (father of tie Marquis Tseng), was co: sidered a remarkable character be-cause lie always walked a "thousand steps a day" in his private garden. Under nolj circumstances whatever is a mandarin ever seen on foot in his own jurisdiction. Occasionally a p)opular judge will try to earn a reputation by going out incognito at night, but even then he :akes a strong guard with him. and (as happen ed when I was at Canton), gets his head broken if he attempts to pry too closely into abuses. As the police and the thieves are usually co-lpartners in one concern, it naturally folloOws that cau tion must 1oe used in at:tacking gaming houses which have bril-rd themselves in to quasi-legality.
