GUIDE TO GROWERS The Fruit-Maggot Fly. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 6 May 1899
GUIDE TO GROWERS The Fruit-Maggot Fly, In describing the Fruit-maggot Fly, Mr. W. W. Froggatt refers to it as a pest' that bidsfair to become one of the most destructive that the fruit.growers of New Bouth Wales will have to con. tend with.' Unfortunately his prediction is an accomplished and lamentable fact. Already consignments of fruit from a surprisingly wide area of the colony are found to be infested with larva of the fruit fly, and several shipments of choice fruits to the other colonies have been rejected on this acoount. This poest is like no other the fruit. grower has to grapple with, and unless the growers lay themselves out to do everything that can be done to check the spread of the insect, in a few seasons the colonial fruit industry will suffer irroe parable harm. The following appendix to Mr. Frog. gatt's article should be carefully per. used, and the recommendations ecrupu. lously carried ont: Destroy all infested fruit as fast as it is found. Boil it for the pigs ...

THE FATAL ILI[ES, -OR The Lady of Larchton Mere. CHAPTER VI. The spring of the year had come round; but home was no longer home to Ross Cumnor. In vain had he tried to stem the torrent that was gradually sweeping him from all place and position, As the baby-boy Hugh grew stronger day after day, Lady Cltmnor grew more insolent, more urgent that Ross should leave home, and more anxious that her son should be at least heir of Larchton Mere, Good-natured, kindly, indolent Sir Austen never dreamed why she questioned him so closely about his title, lands, and money; he was the last ever to suspect evil in any one, So, when he stood one morning on the terrace overlooking themere, and she came up to him, he never imagined that that was the first of a series of investigations and suggestions that were to end in driving his elder son from home and making his younger son heir to Larchton Mere. Lady Cumnor went up to him with the haughty grace that was peculiar to her and laid her hand on his s...

Take jewels. Those at one time in high favour are at another time pronounced of ill omen, Not so long ago nat e~eyos were very fashionable and valuable, There is no call for them now. Why? Becausne women have agreed that they bring bad look, and every fair possessor of these unfortunate stones is disposing of them as fast as possible, One woman was so desirous to break the banoful influence her eat'so.eyo lace pins had wrought, and yet disliking to bHing confusion worse than death upon anyone by selling or giving the ornaments away, that she, by stealth and at night, dug a grape in her back garden and buried them Opals anid emeralds are also un lucky stones, and very few emeon will tempt fate by wearing thoem, A well-known actress has a horror of birds, ...
A Memory. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 6 May 1899
A lemory,. She gave consent and bent her head I thought her strangely kind With pouted lips, "Just one," she said, And then-she changed her mind A woman's privilege Ah, 'twas sad To relinquish it-and yet The sweetest kises I over had Was the one I didn't get, 'IThen how she laughed-the dainty sprite, And smoothed my frowning brow ; I played-a churlish part that night I scarce forgive her now. And yet 'twas better far, I'm sure, Than if our lips had met For in remembrance will endure Tile kiss I didn't get, So 'tis with life-the aims we mies Will shine for ever bright, And leave a fragrance like the kiss I failed to get that night. A, years may come and years may go, But ne'er shall I forget The sweetest kiss I'll over know Was the kiss I didn't got.

Intermarriage of Blood Relations. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 6 May 1899
lntermarriago of Blood Rilations, With regard to deaf mutes, stalltics show, for the most part, that the closer the degroo of relationship between thoe parents, the more numorous are the deaf. mute childron born. For oexample, one marriago between an aunt and nephow prodouod three deaf mutes. Four mar. risgeos between uncle and niece produced eloven deaf mutes; twenty-six marriages betweoon first cousins produced thirty. eight deaf mutes; sixteen marriages between second cousins produced twonty. eight deaf mutes ; forty sevon marriages between blood relatives produceod seventy. two deaf mutes. Theso are important facts, which leave no measure of doubt as to the influence of the atoerinarriago of blood relations in causing deaf.mtlism, Butl just in the same way as conesan guineous mnrriages should be avoided, so also should the intermarriage of persons tainted with hereditary diseaseo e dis. couraged.
