Encouragement to Local Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 April 1887

Encouragement to Local ~-7r; Enterprise.

In 'the 'case of Steamboat owners this does not so much sodIv to monetary assistance, although such is indirectly given in insuring the safety of the valuable floating property in navigating dangerous rivers and crossing intricate bais. a How different is the state of affairs in New South Wales. Right away to the Queensland border our rivers, opening up vast tracks of splendid country, are allowed to pursue their course without the slightest effort being made 4 taimAintainuafe means of entrance or exit.

The Oyster-Beds on the Rich-mond and Clarence Rivers. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 April 1887

The Oyster-Hetls on the Klcb mond and Clarence Rivers. The following statement has been mado on. the authority of Mr. Temperly, Inspeotor of Fisheries on the North Coast Rivers, basod upon a reoent examination of the Clarence and Riohmond Rivers oyster bods : — Tho socond fresh after the great .flood did much mischief to tho Clarence oyster beds, which previously were the best in this district, usually producing as much as all othor beds in tho rivors between Cape Hawke and tbo Tweed River; But, having suffered so severely from tho fr:sh, they are not likoly to produce any oysters for the next/two or three years. After careful examination and applying teats, ho estimates that the destruction iu the Clarence River waa 81 per cent., Tho Richmond' River suffered muoh less, the losses not exceeding 35 per oent. The late long oontinued dry weather with freedom from floods, was favourable to itho growth of sea;weed, snd especially oon^ewoi, and this, with the aooumulation of rubbish on th...

Sydney. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] TniNOB are pretty, dull down here just at pre sent in all classes of trade. Sydney is nothing but a depot for all the rubbish and Bin-plus of other colonies nnd countries. I went to see a large bhip that came into the harbour a couple of days ago, and she had a cargo of chairs, table*, chests of drawers, fancy boxes, &c. All of the. above artioles were full up of clothing and fanoy goods, and by thiB means they wero able to sell the furniture for the same as they get foi cases, as each article wbs a substitute for a c.ise, and no joiners could compete against this method of doing things. The free tradors will tell you that supply and demand rule the market, and that for any articles protected the consumer hns to pay extra. Now, I will quote you one lino for example. The late Jennings-DibbB Ministry when they came into power put a specific duty on all cheese coming into the colony, and before the duty was put on you would have to pay 8d or 9d a...

Answers to Correspondents. ' Victim.' — Clayton's insect exterminator will effectually drive mosquitoes out of a room. Close the doors and windows of tho room, put a small quantity of the powder on a tin plate, and lay a lighted match on the top of it, and allow it to smoulder. The smoke will cause the mosquitoes to drop quite power less, and will prevent any other from entering the room after tho doors and windows are opened. The powder will destroy ants, cock roaches, or any other insects, and may be pro cured of any respectable storekeeper or druggist. ' X.Y.Z.' — The only remedy we know is to &11 down and break a bone of tho limb you can best spare, and then sue the person before whose premises the obstacle exists for a good solid amount.

Mark ITivrjfit! ilsnyecwiiious. - I Wn en Mark arrived in San Francisco from the sagebush state, he waa in a chronic stato of impecuniosity. He had furnished some correspondence to the Qall, and at once made a raid on that office for funds for immediate use and for a position on the local staff. He woro a ragged felt hat, a soldier's blue overcoat, trousers which had rormed a passing acquaintance with the tops of his boots, and the latter were guiltless of even a knowledge of the name of a blacking brush. George Barnes, who was at that time city editor of the Call, told him to come to work the next morn ing, and gave him an order on the business office for money enough to make himself respectable. The next day Mark took possession of his chair, and for six weary months Barnos tried to get some work out of him. At last in his good-natured way, .ho tried to. let Mark down and out easily and politely by saying to him — 4 Mark don't you think you are wasting your time and talents in doi...

Sunflowers. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 April 1887

Sunflowers. The question asked by a correspondent, ' how to cloan the seed,' suggests that in these times any advice to the farmer how to make a farm or a garden pay is valuable, and a few items respecting the sunflower may be acceptable. In this rolfinv no difflnnlt.v nnprl ho nvnorionnnrl in cultivating the sunflower. To allow good tillage, not more than Id, 500 plants should be planted in an acre of land. This will allow 18 inches between tho rows and 36 inches from plant to plant. Growers may- not be awaro that by allowing tho plants to grow to their full height they lose large quantities of seed. Such, however, is tho fact. Therefore, those who grow this plant should, as soon as a bud appears at tho leading shoot, head it back to about 30 inches in height. This will havo tho effect of producing numerous laterals, with tho consequent increase of flower heads. Scarcely any part of the plant but has its uses. The stalks produco a fine hemp for cordage purposes. The heads of the fl...
