She laughed at their eagerness. ' ' How delightful it was to be with you again,' she cried. ' I have not been so happy since I left London.' 'So much has happened since then,' said Daisy demurely.

Growing Flowers in a Few Minutes. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 9 November 1898

Growing Flowers in a Few Minutes. Not satisfied with outdoing them selves, the scientists of to-day are reaching even beyond the field of magic. One of the tricks performed by all magicians is a marvellous growth of flowers. _ It has always been considered a delusion, but now a Frenchman, named Ragonneau, has discovered the real secret which the Yoghis of India alone have shared with nature. The Yoghis plant a seed in the earth, and cover it with a cloth. In a few moments the cloth is pushed upwards by the growing plant, which in a short time attains the height of several feet. Various theories have been advanced as to the modus operandi of this miracle, one of the latter being that the spectators are all hypnotised. During his travels in India, M. Ragon- neau saw this trick performed Ire quenlly, and noticed that the Hindoos , always imbedded the seed in soil ! which they brought with them especi ally tor that purpose. At last he learned that they obtained this earth from the ant h...

A Wrinkle for the Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 9 November 1898

A Wrinkle for the Garden. Ashes strewn on lawns prevent the growth of moss and promote that of the grass. Soot, which is often thrown away, is an excellent fertiliser, particu larly for grass, onions, potatoes, and all kinds of radishes. Both ashes and soot have the property of keeping away sand-fleas and little snails. An excellent fertiliser is obtained by mix ing nine pans of soot with one of salt. '

Locking Up the Tower. A Quaint Ceremony. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 9 November 1898

Locking Up the Tower. A Quaint Ceremony. No place in the world is more carefully guarded than the Tower of London, and since the date of the dynamite explosion these precautions have been doubly strict. So none of the visitors ever see the quaint old ceremony Known as ?? j.ne queens Keys.' During the day the large gates at the two entrances to the Tower are kept open. These are the gates of the first entrance, known as the Middle Tower, and those ot the second entrance, called the Byward Tower. Just within the gates of this build ing is the Warder's Hall, and here the warder on duty for the night remains to open the wicket for those who are allowed to remain out and enter the Tower after 12 o'clock at night. But those who do enter the gates at this time must have the countersign, which is generally the name of a well-known town in the United Kingdom.

Things the Queen Cannot Do. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 9 November 1898

Things the Queen Cannot Do. There are some very curious re strictions on the Royal prerogative in Great Britain. The Queen cannot, for instance, communicate with her subjects -as can the most menial of her servants ; nor can she receive presents from her people save through officers of State or friends personally known to Her Majesty. The Queen could sell or give away the Royal Navy, or declare war with Russia ; but she could not spend a single farthing of public money with out the consent of Parliament. She could not increase the wages of one of her footmen, unless she did so out of her private funds or without ex ceeding the allowance made to her by Parliament. A curious curtailment of the Royal prerogative is effected by an Act of Parliament passed in the reign of George III. This Act deals with Sabbath breaking, and in it it is uiMiuuuy buueu mat me uiuiiciiuii cannot pardon offenders who have been convicted ot certain forms of Sabbath breaking. Though no Act of Parliament is co...

Guide to Growers. MAIZE CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 9 November 1898

Guide to Growers. . — , w MAIZK CULTURE!. ? * ? From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S. W. 'The maize glowers of this . colony are not generally so skilful in the culti vation of this crop as the American farmers are. There is one point, how ever, which may be mentioned Bpeoially, and it will be found worthy the attention of all maizo growers, nnmely, the first operation on the crop after it has been planted. The practice in New South Wales is to use a horse-hoe between the rows as soon as the rows are well above ground. Now, in America, the horse hoe is used first when the plantB are about an inch high. The harrowing does no harm to the crop, and Ur great advantage over the hfle at this particular stage o£ growth is that it breaks up every part of the surface and oheckB the weeds at the outset. The hoe cannot be worked quite close up to the young plants, and it is on this missed piece of ground on which the weeds get a start, and subse quently cause so much damage to the crop. They m...

Simple Subtraction. An Irishman was hauling', water in barrels from a small river to supply the inhabitants of the village, which was not provided with waterworks. As he halted at the top of the bank to give a ' blow ' before proceeding to peddle the water, a gentleman of the innninit.n t.-cnpi rndn un. and after passing the ' time of the day, asked : — * How long have you been hauling water for the village, my good man ?' 4 Tin years or more, sor,' was the reply., ' Ah I And how many loads do yon make a day V ' ' From tin to fifteen, accordin' to the weather, sor.' ' Yes. Now 1 have one for you, Pat,' said the gentleman, laughing. 'How much water have you hauled altogether?' The Irishman jerked his thumb in the direction of the river, at the same time giving his team the hint to start, and replied : ' All the water that yee don't see there now, nor.'

Growing Potatoes for Seed [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 9 November 1898

Growing Potatoes for Seed. From the Agricultural Gazette of X.8. W. ? a There ought to be a business by itself in growing potatoes to be used for seod. The success of the crop always depends very largely on the seed planted. Its care after harvesting ought not to be such as average farmers give to their potato orops. For preparing the very best seed, the potatoes need to be ex posed to a degree of sunlight that will entirety spoil mem ior marnet or tor cooking. Still more is it necessary that the potatoes be well grown and ripened while the foliage is untouched by the potato beetle or its larvse, and uninjured by the fungus which causes blight and potato rot. In how small a proportion of all the potatoes grown do these conditions pre vail ? And the worst of it is that after the potatoes are harvested it is well nigh impossible to select from the bin the potatoes that are sure to produce strong, vigorous hills if cut and plumed as seed. A well-shaped, smooth polato may have been the ...
