A Ridge of Corn. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

A Ridge of Corn.. With heart grown weary of the heat, And hungry for the breath Of field and farm, with eager feet I trod the pavement dry as death Through city streets where vice is born And sudden, lo! a ridge of corn. Above the dingy roofs it stood, A dome of tossing, tangled spears, Dark, cool and sweet as any wood,.. Its silken gleam and plumed ears Laughed on me through the haze of morn, The tranquil presence of the corn. Upor. the salt wind from the sea, Borne westward swift as dreams Of boyhood are, I seemed to be Once more a part of sounds and gleams Thrown on me by the winds of morn Amid the rustling rows of corn. I bared my head, and on me fell The old, wild wizardry again ; " , Of leaf and sky, the moving spell Of boyhaod's easy joy or paso, When pumpkin's trump was Siefried's horn Echoing down the walls of corn. I saw the field (as trackleosthen As wood to Daniel Boone) Wherein we hunted wolves and men, And ranged and twanged the green bassoon, Not blither Robin Hood's ...

Labouchere on the Naval Question [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

Labouchere on the Naval Question ---o I have never been an opponent of a strong navy, although I have questioned the wisdom of Lord George liamilton's dictum that our navy mustbe as strong asthatof any other two naval powers, for this seemed an invitation to theee . Powers to en cage in a beggar-myself game of building ships.. But this I should like to know: If we were engaged in war withsome g2eat Power-say with France should we seek to remain masters in the Mediterranean On a straight strategical questton like this, the fullest consideration prowonld be needed. Without nouncing one way or the other, I cannot help seeing that, were we at war with some strong Mediterranean Power, the difference of the insurance between British and neutral bottoms would transfer to neutrals all the carrying trade now under the British flag in the Mediterranean, for under asuh a mare clausum the risk of isolated steamers cap turing our ships would remain, even if we were to. vanquish the enemy's ships...

Army Reform Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 19 January 1894

Army Reform Hints. In the course of an interesting articloin the "Westminster Gazette" a military oorres. pondent writes :-After reading Sir Evelyn W1ood'a remarks on the recent manceuvree with reference to the manner in which the cavalry horses showed signs of over. work, I could not help thinking how easy itwouldbetoliehten the horses' loads if a little more care was taken to avoid enlisting very heavy men. In a cavalry combat, other things being equal, that aide win, which charges with the most momentum and cohesion. Now momentum is a product of weight and velocity. Suppose, as I suggest, we enlist light, active fnen for our troopers, is it not obvious that the horses willbe able to move andmanuuvra much more rapidly, and that the momentum of their charge will inno way be decreased? As regards horses, too, what can' be nore ridiculous than for us to continue to mount one regiment on greyhorses, as we do in the case of the Scota Greys?

Education of British Officers. -0----.-o SThe report of the Board of Visitors on the Royal Military Collego, Sandhurst, which was issued as a Parliamentary paper, con tained some curious information with. regard to what is called the education of British officers of the Line. While others are fixing their minds on an eight hours' day as on some "golden vision," the Sandhurst boys alrendy.enjoy a foni hours' day ! "At present the cadets study for only four hours and 20 minutes daily in summer, and 4 hours I minutes in winter, of which a very large proportion is in the open air, requiring little mental effort. . As a con sequence, there is a very large amount of time at their disposal, .for which they. must find occupation in'some way or another, and hence the provision for entertainments, which otherwise would not be required." These "entertainments" appear to be numerous and diversified, as, in addition to facilities afforded for cricket, football, lawn tennis, rackets, golf and row...

WARRAGUL ATHENEtUM BAZAAR. -4---., AN EXTENSIVE UNDERTAKING. FOR A PUBLIC CAUSE. A PRETTY SIG HT. The Warragul Athenesum has, un fortunately .shared the blow dealt at every 'other publid institution 'by the protracted depression. People have no money in these times to open. an account in the.interests of intellectual progress, and consequently the member ship has not increased in proportion to the expenses that have had to be met. The overdraft to-day standsat £100,and there are other liabilities which raise the total indebtedness to about £140. To liquidate this somewhat serious de ficit the committee, some four months ago, resolved to hold a monster bazaar in the Public-hall, and make a strenu ous effort to secure the amoint ce quired." Mr. J. Arundel, "President, took the initiative in the matter, and the idea was at once agreed to by the remainder of the committee-Messrs. E. W. Symonds,.W. S. Iliffe, R. Hil lard; C. J. Jones, D.

i -S HOW AND WHEN TO PLANT. Prniong to Sceure a Proper alace o Be tween foot and Top. When to plant-spring or fall-is a hard question to answer, because no one knows what" the season may be. But whether done in the spring or in the fall, Elias A. Long, in his manual on how to plant a place, says, let it be dona early-that is, in spring as soon as pos sible after the soil will work up loose; in the fall immediately after the first hard frosts. To plant for success look most to the roots. Given a good proportion of roots, the top can be made whatever you choose. TREE E1,TI-,SETR-Y- DIGGILX-ArIER PBII-CLG The right and wrong idea regarding balance of parts is shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3 in the cut.
