VARIETIES. Assisting Nature to Assert Itself. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
VARIETIES. Assisthgll Nlatrc to Assert Itself, Mary earsi ago the world was outrageouels over-phyeickcd, over-bliutered, and over bled. The physician and the apothocac7 seemed to look upon the sickl as a sort o property on which they had a legitimate lien -or as some wrcekers regard ships in dis trese, with a single eye to the aalvage-an it was deemed unprofessional to effect a oore until Mr. Bolus had sent in the regular cornm. rilemet of pills and drenoches, and Doctor Depletus bhad reduced the puree as well as the pulsoe of the patient to a pretty low con dition. Fortunately for the present generation, this sort of mercenary practice has boeen generally abandoned. The sick-room no longer resembles the sample department of a drug warehouse. Our physicilans have common sense. They recognioe Nature as the great antagonist of disease, and en deavor to assist her in her struggle to expel it, instead of negatively helping disease by prostrating the physteal strength of ite victims with...

Your Best Friends. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
Your Best Friends After all the flne things said about friend ship, we are still of the opinion that, as a rule, a inan'e best friends in this world are those of his own blood. We believe that a lanrg half of the happiness of the human race is due to consanguineous relationship, and that he is a foe to human welfare whose conduct or opinions tend to weaken thin sacred tie. As a general rule, the noble and the pure, so far as we have observed, are fond of the old home of their childhood, and of thlose who sat with them round its old fire. place. As a rule, that man is to be die trusted who loves not his brother; and the woman who lovee not her sister is, erxcepst in rare, peculiar instances, a woman who is not herself beloved. Cherish ynur kindred. young people. Grandfather, grandmother. parents, brothers, sisters, cousins and sreond cousine-make much of them all. You will find no such friends as they will be, if you are what you should be to them. Hnebondss and wives should love and...
Have a Mind of Your Own. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
nHave a Mind of Your Own. A man without a mind of his own is the most helpless and shiftless of socfil beings. His brain is a mere receptnole for breds sand patoaes of opinion pioked up in the streets, and the same infirmity which leads him to look to everybody saen himself for guoidanoe, renders him incapable of selecting from the multifarious counsel he received that which is best adapted to his exigencies. Nay, in his weak bewilderment he fails to make any selection at all, and while he wavers and hositatel the golden opportunity for deoieive action slips by, and leaves him Iloundorino in a predicamenot, from which one manay stride in almost any dienotion wouid extricata him. But lot the weak of purpose take heart. This unfortunato propounity to vacillnto may be overcome.

History of Manna. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
History of Mannr,. Looking up to see what was wanted, writes Nr. tRobert M. Floyd, I found a umarnll, bright qoeation mark standing in front of me, which immediately askeod: " What's manna?" Why, manna i the food sPont through God's goodness to feed the Jeows while in the wildernoces. ' Yon, yen, unole: but what was it like?" Ie's hard to own up to a unild, " t don't know," but it preventu your briug caught in ignoranoo on the anme subject twioce. Manon, in the Bible, is described : " In the morning the dew lay round aibout," and "when it was gone up," then " upon the wildernces theore lay a small, round thine, as nsmall as hour frost, on the ground," "They gathered it every morningi," for Swhen the nun waxed hot, it melted." IT's teet, was like " wnafers mado with honey." Th' y " did eat manna forty yearo."

A Perfect Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
A Perfect Gentleman. Sir Philip Sydney appears to have more nearly approached the ideal of a perfect gentleman than any other public obaracter in English history. Even his early years were marked by striking traits of natural genius, purity of mind, and generosity of sentiment. He was born in Penhurst, Ea'land, in the year of 1e54, at the ancient country teat of the Sydneys. Famous both as a soldier and a poet, his most attractive qoualities were brought out while on the tented field. One incidfnt of his military career deserves par. tioular reference. In September, 1586, at the battle of Zutphcu, he received a mortal wound. Getting weak from its efects, he put a flask to his mouth; but when about to drink, he noticed,a wounded private soldier lying on the ground, his eloquent eyes silently asking for a draught, but his tongue not daring to express the request. "Take at," said Sir Philip, stooping over his horse, and putting the flash in the poor moan's hand. " You need it more than...

Czar Nicholas and the Frenchman. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
zar' Nicholans asda the Frencle. Alprops of Russia, I am reminded of an anecdote vouched for asno nauthletic and related by that clever journalist, Urelinan Scholl. Czar Nicholas, roturning from paying an early visit to one of his daughters, noticed at tho door of an hotel a young man with a cigar in his mouth. Nicholas could not tolerate the smell of tobacco. " You are a foreigner, sir P' he asked. "Yea, general," was the reply; "I have just arrived from Parie." " Then you are unaware that smoking in the streets of St. Petersburg is prohibited.' "Thanks, general;" and the Parisian threw away his oigar. But if imohing was not allowed, neither wva it permitted to eddreer thle Emperor; and scarcely had tho ltoter passed out of sight when two police oncieers approached thc traveller, and he was a on on his way to the station, where he remained until ten in the evening in the sciety of the thieves ani drunkards who had been arrested on the pro. vious night.

Asparagus. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 20 July 1894
Asparagus. One of the beet and earliest vegetables I. asparagus, coming into use an it does before any other peodotions of tho open ground. Many do not know its excellence, and many who do are deterred from planting by the impression that a great doe Onf ..eare and trouble are neoessary to the opita. teon. To say that rich soil is best is eaying what is true about most of the fruits of the earth. But we have seen very good results from eommon garden soil, and we would have no hesitation in planting-wore it oeceesary outside the garden, if the tramping of ani male (whioh would injure the roots) eoold be preveneed. The latter is oo of the im portant points; the other two are, get the plants, and plant s soon ro0 the pround will work well. The tlants do not cost a Ectet deal, and are to be had at many of tho eurseriea. They may be one or two yeareold-not much difference. If the plants cannot he cod, the teeds can be obtained at the reed stores; this, however, pots the work back a year,...

Ilow to Dry Plants. Plants are dried between papers; paper thatis not glazed, but soft and porous; this should be made ready for nuse in folds and driers. Folds areasseogle pieces of paper, folded once, like a sheet of lotter paper. Driers are made of sai to ten of ouch papers laid together, and stitched lightly to hold them in place. The papere should be about thirteen inohes long and twelve inches wide, and may be old newspapers, if not stiff and glazed; some paper that grocers useo answers well. As we wish to get along with as little expeose as possible, it is better so try to find old newspapers that will answer. Cot several sheets of stiff pasteboard to the ezO of the papers, or an Inoch larger, each way. If not to travel, boards of the same ols will answer, and are often more readily pro cored. These mae be half an inch thick, and kept from witping by a cleat at each end. In collecting, a tin box of some kind will be ftind very useful. Any box twelve or fifteen inches long, wi...
