Is it not a gratifying fact that the alnte anll other raisins have been con si.lered of most excellent quality at the several exhibitions, especially the cullr ranits, whilch arel superior, cleaner, and of bettcr qunlity thani those imported ?

If we consider the aninil impolillrtation of dried fruits ito thel l Australian colonies, and as we know that our climlate is ill every way favoirable to these productions, is it not surprisilng that no lore attention has liien paid to thyse sources of prolit ?

Practical Entomology. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 2 June 1888
Practical Entomology. There is no great mystery about practical entomolohgy, at least to an extent such as will serve general pur poses. You ought to see first that your tree, when you plant it, is not infested. Get yourself a cheap nagni fying glass ; l?a Matthew Cook's book on insects injurious and benecllial to fruit and studyo it. Ordinarily you will, with the aid olf your pocket-:-glass and this hook, be able to name the insect endl at once can find the remedly in the book. The remedies are inexpensive. Yuu should have it spray luimp and a syringe and you are equipped. When I hear a man talking about his not beilg able to rid his orcharl of inju ri ul insects, I at times think that the Lord made i mistake in not matking the man the insect and the iiisect the man. If you watch fro'I the start and apply remedies ait once lwhen the pest imp pb:irs the work is easy. If you find siiomethiing you ican't naie and don't kow its it, habits or history, write to the Stale Fruit Inspector ...

Hints to Growers. HOW TO GERMINATE SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 2 June 1888
HInts to Growers. HOlW TO (iElIMINATE SEEDS. An American agricultural journal gives the following directions upon the subject of germinating seeds: CIIERItY.
