Storage of Green Fodder in Stacks. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

Storage of Green Fodder in Stacks. Writes the Sydney Mail-.-In a recent issue we gave some information regarding the manner in which green fodder could be ensiled in stacks and kept in almost as sound a state as similar fodder placed in ordinary silos. The plans which we advo- cated bave been frequently tried in Eng- land. The most recent instance of success is reported from Shropshire. A farmer of that country determined to prove for him- self whether the preservation of green forage, otherwise than by hay-making, could not be successfully accomplished by his own men and horses without any build- ing or excavation at all, and without any apparatus for pressing. Early in July last he out with a grass-mower l8 acres of grass and clover. A circular space of about 40 feet diameter -was then m irked »«, and a green stack was built on this area. The process began by tilting cartloads in the centre, spreading the stuff about, and trend- ing it down by meanB of a couple of horses led by a ...

The Beautiful Italian Bees. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

The Beautiful Italian Bees. Known in South Australia and America as Ligurian bees, of which I ordered and receiv- ed in spring, 1859, my first queen bee from Herr Dathé, of Eifitrup, Hanover, and two from Signor Mona, in Bellinzona, Italy. To my disappointment the two queens from Italy were useless for queen-breeding, and only the one from Hert Dathé was good- for that purpose ; I used those from Italy for drone-breeding. The trouble, labour, and amount of money my experience had cost' me I need not here mention, still I was not content, because I had seen much hand- somer bees at my venerable tutor's-Dr. Dziereon, in Carlsmarkt, Silesia. I was determined not to rest until I procured a queen of his strain. Finally, in 1861,1 re- ceived a promise that in August a queen would be ready for me. (A whole year in advance all queens had been bespoken, such was the demand.) When the time arrived I paid the doctor a visit and received a splen- did queen. Abont this time Baron von Hruschka (t...

A LITTLE ÆTHETE. [NORTHERN WHIG.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

A LITTLE iESTHBTE. 1 ' ? i Br Belle G. Geben. [northern whio.] Archibald Ward sat with his mother before the open fire in the library of their city residence. The softened light cf the chandelier lent an added charm to their faces as well as to their elegant surroundings, and the storm raging outside made the warmth and brightness within all the more delightful. Presently the young mau yawned profoundly, stretching out his long arms in languid protest. His mother looked up from her sewing. " How is it, Archibald, that you are not at the Mortons' reception to night ? I thought you were going." " Did you ? " his eyes fixed absent- ly on the glowing coals iu the grate ; then, turning abruptly, " Mother, I need the tonic of a new sensation. Where am I to find it ? Not at the Mortons' reception, surely." His mother sighed. *' A pity you are not poor," she said. " What you need is au object in Ufe." "Yes, that is what I need-but what I have not-unless it is your- self." And rising he went...

A Word In Season. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

A Word In Season. At present it can hardly be said that there is any systematic method of remov- ing refuse and rubbish. It is understood that there are contractors for the per- formance of certain scavenging duties, who may or may not perform those duties efficiently so far as their powers go. On that point it is unnecessary to express an opinion. But it is manifest that their functions are by no means sufficiently ample. Complaints are constantly made of persons burying their refuse-even that of the most foul and offensive des- cription- in their gardens and backyards, to the imminent peril of the health of themselves aud their neighbours. No more efficient plan could well be prescrib- ed for the spread of zymotic disease. Those most insidious and fatal maladies, diphtheria and typhoid fever,are peculiar- ly aot to be generated by seme such filthy cause as this. Freedom .may be very good, but no man ought to be free to im- peril his neighbours health and life. As population increa...

"Our Noble English Language." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

%<Our Noble English Language." Lord DtrFFEEW, in the course of a recent speech, dwelling on the advantages which British rule had procured for India, said he was glad to find "our noble English language, the language of Milton," was becoming better known, to the masses of the people. A writer iu the Times of India giv«js the following «musing account of a scene which he witnessed, affording, as he says it does, a striking proof of the truth of the Governor General's assertion. "The -other day, happening to be walking by .the barracks, I came across three small native boys who were having an im- provised game of cricket. The wicket was represented by a piece of board rest- ing against a large stone ; the bat was a «splint from some old box, and the ball was old and angular. The day was hot, and the three little cricketers had dis- pensed with cricketing costume ; in fact, they had nothing but the shiuy brown «km with which kind Mother Nature had. endowed them at their birt...

Wyt Ask» Çail SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1886. j "^^"^^hÍTeabbÍts. j Stjbely the Morning Herald cannot be quite in earnest iu the opinions which it expresses upon the rabbit question. The moment this subject is mooted in its columns it assumes a» air of light banter and pleasant in* credulity, which refuses to take, wo de not Bay an alarmist, but even a serious view of the danger. Nothing will persuade our happy-tempered contemporary but that the omnivorous and omnipresent Australian rabbit, which has done such terrible mischief to our neighbours, is a totally different animal from the harmless and uupro line bunny which sports with innoceut playfulne&s on the islands off the coast, or over the sand-hills that line the Greenough Fiats. It would appear that our rabbit has by no means j attained an "equally high develop. ment" with its eastern brother; that it is an'unenterprising rabbit; and, lastly, that its fecundity is simply that of the " ordinary rabbit, incapable, like ever...

London Imported Fruit Market. (FßOM TUE GAttDEÑ, J ANDABY 2.) j i Around the Monument there is centred what is termed the " green " fruit trade. In the monument buildings a joint sale room, unexampled', says the Telegraph, for its con- veniences, has been erected, and here every morning auctions are held, the several brok- ers having the right to occupy the rostrum for two hours each in turn.

Oranges are classified as " sweet." to which the old term " China " is still ap- plied, and " sour," which is the technical word for bitte . Sweet oranges are for table, and sour ure used in the manufacture of marmalade.

r ?*!ËL5?i4'ËË![!!!* " The Experimental Farm at Dookie, Victoria. (Report Continued.) LINSEED. Five acres of linseed was Bown this season -on the 2nd of June at the rate of 701b per acre. It sprouted finely, and showed a nice crop ; but in September an extra quantity of rain fell at the beginning of the month 3*16-and the extra moisture brought mil- lions of caterpillars, which riddled the whole in a few days, and left nothing but an empty «hell.

CONSERVATION OF WATER IN AUSTRALIA. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

CONSERVATION OF WATER IN AUSTRALIA. -«, By Odipus. No. 1. In dealing with the question of the con- servation of water, my oDject is to treat of principles rather than to discuss rules of practice. By following this course I will avoid going over the ground which has been ably occupied by the advocates of irrigation, while I may hope that my expositions of fact may be of service to individuals outside of irrigation areas. In dealing with principles I am aware that I may have on the one hand to set forth mere truisms, and on the other to present considerations which may not ap- pear to have any immediate practical value, but as I shall offer nothing except what is ¡ likely to be suggestive of improvement and progress, I shall be prepared to meet adverse criticism with equanimity. My attention was first attracted to the question on the occasion of the visit of Colonel Cotton to Port Phillip about thirty eight years ago. He was then entering upon his career as the direotor of the modern...
