(To the Editor of The Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 13 July 1894
(To the Editor of The Guardian.) Sin,-I was very- much surprised to see by the report in your last issue concerning the Debating Society's meeting, held on the 2nd. of the month, that I was so incor rectly reported. Now, Sir, byyour report it would appear that I held Healesville school up individually, which I did not. What I said was "that as far as the Education Act was concerned that through out the length and breadth of the colony the children did not recieve too much in struction, even Healesville included; and that in many State Schools they were not even taught to hold their pens properly,&c." I would not trouble you, Sir, in the matter, but it would appear by the report, as it reads, that I was casting a slur .or ari im putation on our local school, which in all honesty I had not either then or now the slightest wish or thought to do for/one moment, as I consider the Healesville staff will compare favourably with any other staff in the colony either as regards their ...

THE OLIVE. MAKING THE OIL. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 20 July 1894
THE OLIVE. MAKING TlHE 01L. The fruit should be gatherred as soon as it turns purple and before fully ripe, as the oil will I,e lighter in odlor and more fragrant, hut somewh:lt less in quantity. In Europe the common method of gathering the berries is to knock them from the trees with poles; they are then picked from the ground. i'he plan has objections, the fruit being more or less bruisd, causing deconmposi tion, and the contact with the earth is likely to give the oil an unpleasant taste and odour. Pick by hand, if possible. An active man can gather from 3 cwt. to 4 cwt. a day. Separate all the leaves and imperfect herriem. This can be done rapidly by passing the whoble lot through a winnower. The berries are dried before crushing,i as it is necessary to evaporate a portion of the water. If, however, they are left on the trees until shrivelled, which is proof that necessary evaporation has already taken place, no drying is need ed after picking. This late picking is not best. If ...

WHAT FIVE ACRES DID. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 20 July 1894
RWHAT FIVE- ACRES DID. Some people turihble into a good thing and then have difficulty in realising how well off they are, says the Los Angelos ileratd. Such a man was a resident of Pasadena, who had five acres of land offered bim by its owner, who had to. go to the E-.st, for 400 dol lars. The land was .et out to decidu ous fruits, and had on it a neat little house, but it had no water right. The bargain was tleelined, and the owner said: " Well, you take the place and take care of it for the crop. 'If you can sell it for me, all, right, and if you cannot, all right," and off he went. The Pasadena man took good care of the place, and some weeks ago fruit buyers began to make him offers for his crop, and he changed his mind about buying and sent to his friend in the East the purchase money, paying for the place out of the cash that he had received for the fruit and having enough left over to keep him comfort able for a year besides. A hardy seaman who had escaped ship-wreck was aske...
