His views on the subject were well known, and-were not witli the petitioners. It had been said the employees -were forced -to work on Sunday, and that if they did not their services would be dispensed with, but such was not tile case.

SCIENCE AND ART JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 7 February 1890
SCIENCE AND ART JOTTINGS. TrE Norwegian cod-fishery this year has been unusually successful. It is reported that 36,000,000 fish were taken. As outbreak of enteric fever in Leeds, England, lhas been traced to two farms whence milk is supplied to the families of those who have been attacked. OF five cases of moveable heart studied by Professor Rumpf, three were the results of dietetic and medicinal attempts to cure obesity. Tlhe Ledgerhas repeatedly warned its correspondents against such attempts to caure obesity. NEW INVExxTroc.-Percolating teapots amre very much to be recommended, the rationale of their use being to prevent the tannic acid, which forms four or five minutes after the hot water is poured upon the leaves, passing into thle tea. By meants of the percolator tihe leaves are kept above tihe level of the water as soon as the first cup of tea is poured out, and tihe quality of the"brew"thenremains thesameto theend.

HINTS ON MAILING LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 7 February 1890
HINTS ON MAILING LETTERSj IN addressing all letters, use black ink and large, loud, distinct penmanship. Mail your own letters. Dirset thenim to the proper city. Register valuable and important letters. Write nothing in the north-ehnst corner. Use the Government-stamped envelopes. Provide a letter-box at your door. Write "Transient" on letters to citid through which your correspondents pas when travelling. In strange offices show your printed G written nnme. Enclose to correspondents printed ensi lopes stamped and directed to yourself. We give these rules for what they a worth-and they are worth much. lTe alas! those that are rich in absent-minlds ness, like those that are poor in thisworl' goods, are 'always with us." So I chances are that, in spite of these ten g pieces of advice, the Dead Letter 0l4ice continue to flourish like a green bay for some time to come. S
HOW TO GROW ORCHIDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 7 February 1890
HOW TO GROW ORCHIDS. AN article in the Horticultural Times gives the following advice: - "Of late years orchid culture has been greatlysim plifled, and many more classes of tihe community can share alike the enjoyment created in the grow of a few cool orchids. Fortunately for everyone who loves . gardening, many orchids can ie grown in greenhouses, and even byjudi cious management many can be grown out of doors, during favourable weather, from midsummer until the end of September. It must not, however, be supposed that because these valuable plants are to be recommended for growing out of doors that everyone can grow them in a manner similar to out-door plants; because it is not so, as it requires, skill, judgment, and patience on the part of the cultivator before he is able to understand their re quirements in the open air. It is certain that a little knowledge is required to grow orchids in an ordinary greenhouse, and will cause the cultivator to make prepara tions necessary to th...
