SOME CRICKET RECORDS. The distinction of having made the highest individual score m any first class match belongs to A.C. M'Laren, and has belonged t>o him since 1895, when he scored. 42-4 runs tor Lanca shire against Somerset at, Taunton. During the season of 1901, C. B. Fry made no fewer than 13 uhree figure scores—an achievement never beaten, and only onoe equalled—name ly, by Tom Hay ward . in 1906. In that same season, by the way, Hay ward amassed ihe record individual aggregate by scoring in all 3,518 runs. It was in 1906 again, that G. H. Hirst performed the unique feat of scoring over 2,000 runs^ and taking over 200 wickets. A bowling achiev nient which is likely to take a bit of beating was accomplished by A. E. Trott m 1907 when playing in his own benefit match for Middlesex against Sussex. Not content with taking four wickets - with consecutive balls, he then proceeded 'to periorm the hat trick in the same innings.

The plants (that may be safely relied on as forage in ail parts of the colony are winter rye for late autumn and. early spring pasture* and a mixture of winter wheat, oa»ts> and barley for summer use. - An easy way to pro vide a liberal supply oi wimer forage for all kinds of iive stock is to sow : winter rye 'in a crop of barley. The ground, should be ploughed to a depth of at least live inc'nes. It should bb harrowed at least three times, or har rowed. one© and then roiled. The barley should be sown to a depth oi auuui two and -one-half inches. When (the young crop has attained a height of about three inches it should be har rowed lengthwise, and then jointer rye should be drilled crosswise amongst it at a depth of about one inch. If the soil [has been well packed, as sug gested above, the depths of the various drillings can be easily regulated and the crop be benefited by the ex-ra cultivation given to the grouncf by harrowing and cross drilling.

Opera giasses were levelled at her bos from every part of the house, and so great was the excitement that the perf or mahee was almost brought to a stand still. GeneraLy speaking, however, the new fasnion does not find favor among uhe "Four Hundred." in Russia on idie. contrary, the craze seems to have caught on.

CLIPPINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 July 1914
CLIPPINGS. A poultryman's, like a v. oman's work, is never done. Filth and vermin is the greatest combination against success in the poultry business. If soiled hands will spoil an egg for hatching purposes, do dirty nests and dirty hands have ho effect on the eat ing quality? Those wlio have plenty of chickens and eggs to use on their tables when they desire these splendid goods, do not feel the heavy hand of the higher cost of living. Kill the Rooster.—According to Bul letin 160, issued by the U.S. Depart ment of Agriculture, the egg loss ol the United States, amounting to. 45,000,000 annually, would be cut one half if the male birds were removed after the hatching season was over. Fertile eggs are subject to rapid de terioration, due to the development oi blood rings and rots, which takes pj^ee even if eggs are given good care on the farm and by the egg collectors. In fertile eggs are . much more resistent to deterioration than those that are feiv tile, regardless of where they a...

Fertilisers and Grass. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 July 1914
Fertilisers and Grass. Judging from the poor condition of a considerable portion of "he grass lands in different, parts of the country, there are still many larmers wno seem to think thati pastures have no need for manures; and. there are oth ers who content themselves .wuh ap plying from time to time feeble dres sings of farmyard manure to such fields as are near the homestead, or they utunk the fields are sufficiently enrich ed by the droppings of the animals. Such neglect is a mistake, because the plants that constitute the nour ishing herbage of grass laud require a liberal quantity of pjant food m order to develop into rich iorage. It is, thereiore, necessary to devote to the manuring of grass -he same attention as is customary with cereals and other arable crops. Farmyard manure is often said to be a complex ■ manure, and m applying it to the land, the cycle of ieriility is assumed to be kept up through the medium of the animais, and the farmer, who thus reasons (thinks tha^ b...

"I am glad Mrs. Jermain is out, as I have something I wish to say to you," replied Josh, as he seated him self near her, looking at the refined but sad face, and from her his eyes wandered to the lovely old ' garden and beyond it to the well-wooded park. Then before his mind's eye there rose a vision of a rustic bench at one side of a field-path, and a girl shabbily dressed, who listened with blushing face, but the light of joy on it, to his words of love. That bad been his first wooing, very; different from this ; then he roused himself. It seemed to him there had been a long pause, but in reality it nad not oc cupied more than a minute for that picture to stamp itself on his mind. "I daresay your father told you that I had asked his permission to make yon an offer of marriage," he said, ...
