PLANT CATALOGUES. MR. HENRY SEWELL'S SUPPLEMENTAL CATALOGUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

PLANT CATALOGUES. HE. HEKET fiBITEIX'e SUPPLEJDUTEil, CATALO3CB. Mr. Henry Sewell, of Payneham, ha8 now made his catalogue a very important agent in forwarding the interest of his business cs a ' plant merchant.' Gardeners take a great interest in the trade lists, and are generally vory anxious on the approach of winter to be made acquainted with tiie new plants of the year. Novelty seems to have a great charm for gardeners ; and not withstanding the fact that tens of thousands of species and varieties are enamerated in euch lists, evtry year adds to the number materially. The introdnction of species by public or private agency is deserving of every encouragement, more especially whan the introduced plants are such as are suit able for outdoor culture, either ornamental or ir.duttriaL There is, however, in plant trade a tendency that is likely to become |)eriiiciou6 in its effects if carried too far — ibat of introducing a number of varieties, of florists' flowers in particular, as ...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

AGRICULTORA.L NOTES. The experience of the past weelr Iilu teen a very agreeable one for the faraiar so far as -weather is concerned. More rains have fallen, which have covered a wide ex tent of country, setting the feed growing and affording opportunity for proceeding vigorously -with the work of cultivation. This opportunity the agriculturists have not been slow to avail themselves of, aad ploughing and seeding have been carried on with spirit. From the other colonies we also hear of genial rains bavin' fallen, and the prospects are reported as favorable for the coming season. A correspondent of the New York Weekly Tribune, who ia a strong advocate for the use of superphosphate with wheat, sends to that paper the results of his ex periments with that fertiliser. He says : — ' Fifteen years ago I drilled in 500 pounds of superphosphate with wheat. The vield on the part phosphated was more 'than double that on the part whore uo fertiliser was used, and I have continued to use it eve...

^vitxcohnhl OUR VICIORIAN LETIEft. Melbourne, May 3. In the south-west 0! Scotland there ib a river wbich was at one time little more than a ditch, but which the enterprise aud industry oE the North has made so famous that the Olyde hu become better known throughout the world than many a mightier stream. An episode has transpired in Hobson's Bay whioh takes us back at a stride to that estaary-river. Some nice months ago a filr. Henderson, wh.3sa ante cedents ace likely to be better ascertained in a short period tban is poiaible at present, matured a plan in his scheming brain which would eeem to be entitled to tbe questionable distinction of a romance in ccime. A handy, well- appointed steamer, of nearly 500 tons burden, and well known as a passeLger boat and trader to the Hebrides, was applied for by thia gentleman, who desired to charter her for a pleasure ex;ur eioD. A reference was given by him to his London bankers which, it is said, was found to be satisfactory, and the bargai...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

The folly of attempting to enter or leave a train while in motion has been fatally exem plified in Victoria lately, and was praotioally illustrated at the Gawler Bail way Station on Tuesday evening, May 8. According to one of the Gawler papers as the North train was coming into the station, one of the junior telegraph messengers attempted to jump on the footboard of the mail van whilst in motion. He missed his footing and slipped between the carriage and the platform and badly grazed his thighs. Part of his clothes was also torn, and he had a very narrow escape. £pps's Cocoa. — Gbatbfui, and Com- FOBTnra.— 'By a thorough knowledge of the natural lavs wMch gorem the operations of digM ilon and nutrition, ana by a careful application of the One properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr: Epps baa provided onr breakfast tables with a dencatelr Oavored beverage which may am us many hearr doctors' bills.

? ♦ SOUTH AUSTRALIAN FARMERS' MUTUAL ASSOCIATION. Gladstoitb. A meeting of the Gladstone branch of the Farmers' Association was held on Saturday, May 7. Mr. Jas. Tonkin occupied tbe chair. It was mentioned that tbe branoh would probably suffer the loes of their president by his removing frem tbe district at no distant period. The Ohairman said he had examined the papers sent by Messrs. Clark & Sons concerning wells and well-boring. He thought tbe expense would come to about 5s. per foot. There were tools to suit bard or soft ground, iron tubes had to be put down as tbe bore proceeded, and the ex pense and trouble of bringing np the .stuff was considerable. He thought a lever the easiest and best means of doing this, and tbe wider the bore the less this difficulty became.
