ART & LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

ART & LITERATURE. Mrs. Starmard's pathetic story "Booties' Baby " has been dramatized, and the play is to be brought out in London by Edgar Bruce. Mr. Bancroft, the venerable historian, is thought to be the only American, now living who met and remembers Lord Byron. George Meredith, the English novelist, does all his work in a little chalet which he has built in. his garden, and sleeps in a liam mook swung there among his books, with the windows open. When he cannot sleep he wanders out into the woods. An old Lord Eountleroy in England, rich and childless, is said to have written to Mrs Burnett, asking her to prepare a sequel to her wonderfully popular story. Mrs. Bur nett, with her two boys, Lionel and Vivian, is spending the winter in Florence. Some interesting autographs of men of letters were sold recently in London. In one from Swift the writer declares that so dire is his poverty that " if I come to Mare Park it must be on foot." Sterne begs for the loan of £50. A lett...

ODDS AND ENDS. The Ruby Mines of Burmah. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

ODDS AND ENDS. Tlie Ruliy Mines of Bur mall. Sir J. Grorst has informed Mr. Hanbuiy in Parliament that, according to the best in formation possessed by the Secretary of State, King Theebaw's revenue from the ruby mines did not average so much as 150,000 rupees; and he never received so much as 190,000 rupees. Stones of the value of 2,000 rupees were Royal perquisites, but -were generally secreted or broken up by the finders. Whether the mines were practically inex haustible could not be answered till the report of the scientific expert sent out by the Secre tary of State had' been received. All precautions which were practicable were taken, but some smuggling undoubtedly took place. A diminution of revenue took place while the mines were unworked; but as the rubies were still there, it was expected to be recouped in years to come.

" Carmen Sylva, The Poet Queen." [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

" Carmen Sylva, Tlie Poet Queen." The Woman's World is strong this month in royalties. The Princess Christian writes on NursiDgj and is followed bj a paper describ ing the life of Elizabeth, Queen of Roumania. She is forty-five, daughter of Prince Herman of Wied, and was first educated by Mdlle. Lavater, the niec9 of the celebrated physiognomist: In 1850 Prince Herman with his family went to reside at Bonn for a time, and here his young daughter used to sit on the knee of the aged poet, E. M. Arndfc, and listen to his patriotic speeches, which found echo in her ardent nature. "When very young, she delighted in mixing in games and playing with the children of a humble class, and her great desire was to attend the village school, more especially the class for singing. One fine morning she set off with the farmer's children to school, the singing class began, and the new pupil sang so lustily, and opened her pretty mouth so wide, that the farmer's daughter placed her hand over her mout...

Profits of the Fig. A PAPER WITH DETAILS OF REVENUE FROM ITS CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Profits of the Fig. A PAPEB ?WITH DETAILS OF BEVENUE FE.OM ITS CULTUEE. "Southern California from the sea coast to the interior mountain ranges is adapted for fig raising. It grows and produces luxuriously here at Oceanside on the sea coast, and it is equally at home in the drier valleys of the interior. On a recent visit to Los Angeles county I made it a special object to investigate the fig business there, and from the facts collected on that occasion I am inclined to think if the fig industry is handled right it will take the lead of almost all kinds of fruit as a paying crop. I visited Mr. Stewart's fig orchard near Downey City, and was greatly pleased with my investigations. In comparing the fig as a profitable crop with the olive, Mr. Stewart said that in three years after being put out the fig will begin to bear, and at four years old will produce enough to cover the original cost of trees and cultivation, and from that on it produces a steady income with little labour and ex...

The Olive. SOME FURTHER FACTS ABOUT THE VALUE OF THE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

The Olive. SOME FUBTHEB FACTS ABOUT, THE-VALUE 'I'H K TBEE. Much has been said concerning the pecuniary advantages of olive culture, but owing to its comparative recent introduction into this country few facts and figures have been adduced in corroboration thereof. As compared with the immense growth of the tree and the enormous age which it attains in its native clime, the few trees in this country may be said to be in their infancy, although many orchards are spoken of as being in full bearing. Consequently any figures showing the revenue to be deiived from an acre <- f" . . " cultivated to the %live must of necessiv incomplete. Such figures as are given below may be relied upon as being correct, and in their incompleteness form a basis, indefinite, to be sure, upon which it will be interesting to calculate the enormous yield to be derived from an olive orchard, the trees of which are the size of a full-grown apple or cherry tree, and 30 to 50 years old. Among the few o...

Seed Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Seed Potatoes. The selection of potatoes for seed should be made when the crop is harvested, and before being taken up after being dug. At this time the very smoothest and most perfectly formed ones can be and should be taken to be used as seed for the next year's crop. This seed should be handled carefully so as not to bruise them. They should be put into sacks and stored in a dry, cool cellar, separate from or as far away from other potatoes as possible. The veiy largest are as undesirable as the very smallest, for seed as well as for the table.

Dehorning Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Dehorning? Cattle. Same years ago benevolent-minded people denounced the dehorning of cattle as a cruel practice, only worthy of barbarians. Lately the stock journals of the country have asserted the contrary, and cite proof that the operation of cutting off the horns of a milch cow is not a painful or any way dangerous act, as the flow of milk does not lessen and the relish for food does not weaken. These assertions are borne out by the actual ex perience narrated in the Seattle Post-Intelli gencer, where it asserts that at the Puyallup creamery they have cut off the horns from sixty-eight head of stock within two weeks, many of them being milch cows. The opera-; tion is simply to cut .oif the horns as close to the head as possible. The result has been that more than twice the number of cattle can be put in the same iuclosure and the vicious ones have no way to impose on the quiet ones. That is the chief reason for so doing, and that is eaeugh of itself to j ustify dehorning. It wo...

BURRA, June 6. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

BUKKA, June 6. I referred to you in my last about a man named AJlway who had been murdered at. the Hanson Hotel, Farrels Flat, by the Publican, Arthur Worby, serving him with intoxicants for a period of nine weeks at a stretch. The inquest, which was com menced about a week ago, was concluded on Monday last at the Burra Hospital, where the man died. The evidence showed soma most inhuman treatment by Worby, and the. following verdict-wasarrived at by the Jury. " That the. deceased R. T, AUaway died from . acoholie poisoning," - Also, " That Arthur Worby, at whose licensed house de ceased had been staying fur nine weeks is quite unfit to hold a license and shou!d be most severely censured for his conduct in permitting deceased to epend all his money and also for sending him to the hospital in the neglected state in which he was."
